#32 - Field Recordings In The Czech Republic

by The Owl & The Littlemouse

/
1.
May I present to you, the very serious musicians involved in making this album.
2.
I've always thought 'the blastbeat road crossings' in Czech were great, and now I've been able to make a song from their sound.
3.
You didn't expect that the printers would be involved in the robotic takeover of the planet, did you?
4.
Feel their fury. Their growing rage. Thunderous might launched across these wretched lands.
5.
The song that started it all. The Littlemouse needed something recording for work and I was in 'fuck about making music' mode. The two situations collided and thus this album was born.
6.
Dedicated to a masterpiece: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streetcleaner
7.
Extreme trams make extreme noise music.
8.
The sound of steaming spuds. Now that IS music to the ears!
9.
12 minutes of the sounds of shelves being put up.
10.
Seriously though, the glug of a freshly opened bottle of whiskey (and wine for that matter) is literally music to the ears.
11.
Recorded outside Klub Futra, the day after their birthday party, 6/9/20. Lyrics: It's not going to fall down because we're not touching that one, are we? They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. They are going to kill us. Watch out. Watch out. Watch out. Watch out. Watch out. Watch out. Watch out. Watch out.
12.
I don't think anyone else heard this skate event the same way I did. I had a fair amount of Czech lager that day! But, yes, I was also staying hydrated!
13.
Blending beans. Man cutting trees outside. All sounds can be danced to!
14.
Recorded on the Prague Central to Smichov train. I'm sure it was one of the first trains ever made.
15.
The main 'noise' part was 15 minutes of Amy The Mouse shuffling around her house condensed into a minute. Ever the 'trve kvlt' noise artist, this is the only recording ever released by her.
16.
I totally wish I had filmed these guys playing. It was great, on a nice sunny September afternoon, families around, quite the weird setting, but glad I caught some of it. I've always liked this tune, and the octave up and down and whirling noise additions sounds so nice to me. It makes me smile.
17.
All great things must come to an end, so here is one last little noise flurry to close this chapter, in our lives and in yours too. I hope you enjoyed it.
