A little love for “Not Subliminal”

Tuesday, 6 January 2015

David Nemeth wrote a piece about “Not Subliminal” in the latest blog post from Acts of Silence:

I was very pleased when I heard that C. Reider had released a new album based on experimenting with cassettes and cassette recorders. Not Subliminal cries out to be released on a cassette, but Reider bucked that trend and went digital. Don’t get me wrong, if he released a cassette of this type, my PayPal account would be all over it.

The premise of the Not Subliminal, Reider writes, “involved recording some stuff onto one tape while playing back previously recorded stuff on the other tape players, and letting it all mix together out loud … recording everything onto the shitty little onboard microphones that these handheld tape recorders had.” Not Subliminal‘s dissonance and self-referential audio recordings point the work into the genre of manipulated field recordings as well as the experimental. Genre lines are usually quite gray with Reider.

Over the last year, Reider has been releasing a lot of older work which bordered on “real music” [see my review of Malaventura’s Malaventura04], so this reviewer was quite happy to read that Reider will be releasing more of this cassette work in the future.




“Not Subliminal” is still available for free download from Control Valve netlabel.
