Boris Hegenbart & 19 Artists - Instrumentarium 2LP 24839
Eight years ago, Boris Hegenbart began turning his interests in Dub principles into reality and during this period of time, he made his collaborations with (or if you want, he made commissions for) monumental artists, such as Fred Frith, David Grubbs, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Brandlmayr, Michael Vorfeld, Felix Kubin, Ulrich Krieger, etc. The principle was simple: artists did overdub recordings with Hegenbart's material, which would be later transformed, using studio as an instrument, as a typical work process that features 99% history of dub sound. But in this case, dub is only a statement or concept, which means, there are no typical dub trademarks and tools (delay, reverb). This leads to only one result: if dub is deconstruction of music, then those pieces are deconstruction of dub! This double vinyl master piece, is nothing more then a perfect homogenous collection of so many different personalities at the same place/record. The hardest and the greatest achievement, is to connect all of them into one musical milestone, something that Boris Hegenbart succeeded without highfaluting.
