The Wire Tapper 41
All copies of the August 2016 issue of The Wire will come complete with an exclusive free CD attached to the cover, The Wire Tapper 41, the latest volume in the acclaimed series of new music compilations.
As with previous volumes this CD, which has been compiled by Shane Woolman, Gustave Evrard and Astrud Steehouder, is packaged in a heavy duty card sleeve designed by The Wire’s art director Ben Weaver, and contains a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks from across the spectrum of the kind of underground/outsider musics covered in The Wire.
“Inspired by Luigi Russolo’s use of onomatopoeia in his 1913 Futurist manifesto Art Of Noises, Berlin based composer/sound artist Alessandra Eramo carries out intense explorations of past industrialised and deindustrialised sounds summoned up and articulated in the here and now by her naked voice. Backed by a theremin, tape machine and contact mics, she transforms her utterances into harmonious miniatures that reveal the rough beauty of her recovered industrial sounds.”
