Tania Chen & Jon Leidecker - Sounds
Recorded May 6-17, 2017

Reviews:
(Avant Music News) Live in Japan [eh?102] is a duo set from Tania Chen and Jon Leidecker, recorded in Osaka, Chiba and Tokyo in May 2017. Chen, a UK pianist who also makes sound with found objects, toys and lo-fi electronics, and Leidecker, an experimental electronics musician from San Francisco, both appear on a recently released recording of John Cageís Electronic Music for Piano (which also includes David Toop and Thurston Moore); they also collaborated in 2016 on Chenís Colour Fields for video and electronics, which is in some respects a foreshadowing of Live in Japan. As with Colour Fields the performances here are about the color and textural properties of electronic sounds (and occasionally Chenís voice): their tone, saturation, density, and reciprocal cross-shadings. - Daniel Barbiero

(Vital Weekly) Eh? Records is an off-shoot of Public Eyesore and the label was created to release tour-only albums for the label boss, Brian Day, but these days is open for others; usually on CDR in small editions. This new release is a tour-only, but albeit a post-tour documentation for a concert trip to Japan by Tania Chen and Jon Leidecker. The latter you may know as Wobbly, even when not very much present in these pages; currently he is also a member of Negativland (interview with him in this month's Perfect Sound Forever ). I don't think I know who Tania Chen is. They both get credit for 'sounds', and how these sounds are made I don't know. Judging by the cover, showing a radio and some toys, and hearing the music, I'd say there is a fair share of circuit bending going on, probably on the toys shown, along with rhythm machines and electronics to further expand on those sounds. Sometimes the party moves into drone land but with a noisy taste for crude elements splattering about. Voice is occasionally used; I assume that's from Chen, but it might be there is a some speak 'n spell toy sounds and dolls on the meltdown. When Chen's sings it adds an element of folk/improvisation to the music, yet in a slightly freaky manner. Pieces were primarily recorded in Osaka (six of them), and make up a more or less continuous play, with the last one being the most coherent (read: less chaotic) one, with a strong on-going rhythm and synth wash. The other two pieces where recorded in Chiba and Tokyo, both of which sound quite improvised; obviously we don't get to hear the rest so I couldn't say if the rhythms of Osaka is an one-off or not. Throughout a most lovely varied disc and fine documentation. (FdW) - Frans De Waard
