Oh fuck I love Reynols in a post modern fashion.

Nice! I can't wait to get home, so I can listen to it loud enough to pick up all the weird(er) noise.

Before I explore these links - and believe you me, I will - I feel I must post one of the greatest tracklistings I know:
1. We Are Still Thinking About The Title
2. We Are Still Thinking About The Title!
3. We Are Still Thinking About The Title...
4. We Are Still Thinking About The Title?
5. We Are Not More Thinking About The Title
6. Tomasin's Comments About This Release, Life, Etc.
7. The Title Is Now Thinking About Us
- Pauline Oliveros & Reynols: "Pauline Oliveros In The Arms Of Reynols". A truly magnificent album, as well. You can find a track from it if you follow the last link above.
When I came across it, I knew I had bonded with Reynols for all eternity.

Sounds fantastic, thanks! As klangklangston notes, this really needs to be played on the good hi-fi rather than my computer.

Somebody please tell me there aren't any totally scarifying noises later in this piece like those horrifying amplified rolling peas in Scott Walker's "Psoriatic," which I will never ever again play late at night.

I saw these guys back in 2000 when they were part of some performance art thing at a hole in the wall in Columbus, Ohio (MadLab? FireExit? something like that). Tomasin wasn't with them though for some reason I can't remember. Still, it was a lot of fun to see them.

I love Reynols.

Buscando a Reynols is a great documentary on the band, with lots of live footage and an extended interview with Tomasin. Here's a couple of snippets on YouTube.

Is this something I'd have to be sitting in a room with to understand?

@Falconetti

I was at that show too. We toured with them a bit which was quite strange, to say the least. Anla or Alan does work with sound therapy outside of the art/noise thing. He's a real nice fellow. Mancho did not speak much English but what he did say was always hilarious.

Best show was Cinncinati in 2001 at the Southgate House. They ran yarn around all the mic stands and attached it to an osage orange (monkey brain), which was set to pound down on a guitar when one pulled the yarn. Truly weird and beautiful . . .

Pauline Oliveros? deep listening is some trippy stuff.

Works well with headphones.

thanks. i love stuff like this; knowing how it was created makes it even more enjoyable to try and figure out what might have made the sounds.

Nice post. I'm looking forward to getting home and giving this a proper listen.
