The Last and Final Outtakes Record Ever (abstractCD015) May 24, 2016

Posted by abstractsoundrec in Uncategorized.

Found as a compiled Audio CD in a shoebox of massive abstract/concrete archives, this audio Compact Disc was compiled & sequenced by the band and the band find it could play as a whole. Sequenced from the massive mastertapes of rehearshall recordings, this audio CD features a long first track, because as the band prepared for live performance by unchaining the songs to form a massive wall of melody/noise, the first track that start the last and final baby (10 years after the band disbanded!) feature 3 songs unchained as performed live. This particular take is of course like no other due to the improvisational space left trought the composition, the intro, a piece of ‘blank’ improv in the middle, the unerving & space riffing that will explode freely and this kind of band self-language to create an athmosphere and present songs that usually got the same timing but in recording differs because of the improvistional parts build up and let free trought the entire catalog of songs performed by Outtakes at that time.

A catalog expanded by a curious one take rec song that ends up as the final Side B Track 1 of the LP and a song that only got two takes, here is the second rare alternate  of “Electricity Pole” that features as the disc second track (remaining one of the latest track/improvisational soundscape the band composed (w/ Mexico City Blues that was planned to end up on abstractLP02 that never came out (as we planned to issue recordings w/ the money from the first 500 copies which finally kind of sold out trought the last 10 years history of this LP, trought small indie stores, most of it was given free as a promotiuonal item, it’s now becoming a part of the prestigious collection of the BNF  (Bibliothèque Nationale de France) that guarantee us a conservation in pristine condition, as a new law that date from 2015, finally conceived small production & true indie labels as part of the cultural landscape of this country’s music & artistic production, (as they’ve contact us trought email, which wasn t a spam at all, to the most surprise, they seem to got the email trought our bandcamp recent uploads & give us a link to la doc Française to download fill up w/ adobe reader and send for free as the law also make the postage free & recognise the efforts of all those small labels to make music, it seems audacious as it will join a collection of rare recordings made by most of all this country’s unpaid musicians who despite their lack of success didn t seem to lack of iddea and talent, as the music production trought home studio became affordable technology (mostly everyoe can get a computer and a small 8-track to beguin with, with decent microphones under 100$ as we does)

So its an astonishing news, to at least after all those years of music making and efforts to be recognised as true artist that the Minisstry of Culture along with the BNF propose to small indie labels to surely conserve the piece of handmade Art as a piece of cultural landscape of national small indie artists. We try to record the LP in a kid of state-of-the-art if we can sa it, I recall buying a lot of gear at that time I was working & was very well paid, to put a large amount of what I was pay for in the music, the gear, the audio solutions, dreaming about what mic can be affordable what kind of new fx I coulkd buy & produce a real LP with mastering credit and all. After all it gives a sense of hope for future music production, as it is well known this LP cost us a arm or at least a leg, I personnally still wait for the 300 ex of a new  LP, considering that 525 digital copies in MPeg LayerIII (more simply say MP3) of the LP main epic 41 minutes title ‘The End of Time’ had been freely downloaded , without counting the 2 000 copies (yes two thousands copies) of the two sides of Skuy Piece LP (abstractLP04) dedicated to the work in Art of Yoko & John, also freely downloaded in HQ MP3 (320K/bps at least) [also available in FLAC , a lossless format who play in most ofplmayers except itunes] those free downloads which can become, I hope, some sort of credibility for asking public (or private) investment that mean money to produce the whole stuff & find a more professional distributor, also the public money is redirected locally trought local management of ‘difficult’ music & out of the art world game & music industry bussiness plan, lifespan & career as a musician.

It seems to be less a kind of utopic dream then years ago as the small indies label that offer those free MP3 of original creation in a way compete with the industry who cannot offer better then free music (music industry who was & still against MP3, making overpaid ‘artists’ sign for the credibility of the dumbest message, when the real problem is that those artists that offer free music as a way to promote what they do, it doesn t mean that the music they made doesn t cost anything or didn t have any cost, it just still a way of promoting, even more a politic of running a label that Abstract Sound Recording (even despite internal tension) is till promoting (if you check our Bandcamp page most of the tracks are free to download + the profit will go to charity action but we’ll see it later, let s refocus on this web blog article on a recent recording made by a band that lived and recorded but years and years ago (10 to be approximative)

As I already said before running the production of abstractLP03 ‘the end of time’ to 300 ex on LP & also the production of abstract LP04 which is a tribute to John Lenon & Yoko Ono  (who can be cost effective to our small bank accounts) here is a recent quotation made by Yoko Ono that will refocus this article on the 2016 issue of a record sequenced by a band that disbanded few years (10 or more to be approximative) ago (2008 to be exact) . Here is the beautiful statement Yoko made recently

« I don’t rely on time, Time is what manmade for our convenience, and in reality, it does not exist, » (Yoko Ono, April,26th 2016)

The Audio CD ends up eventually with a very beautiful take of “Mexico City Blues”, one of the latest full lenght song written by outtakes (as “Il est temps de se sentir libre” was abandonned as a part of live performances at that time) . As many songs written by the band, some not to say all have massive real improvisational parts which made the result vary on each and every take recorded. It is also well known, that with all this equipment & in a home studio situation for rehearshing, each and every rehearshall was captured to tape by mat w/ a 16-tracks console, ultra DIs (direct inject boxes) with amp simulators and as well over-mic’d amps plus double reverb , de-esser and trriple virtualizer for the recording and mixing at abstract soundscapes of all tracking w/ potent audio solutions

The sound gear collection was produced mainly by mat as a result of his well payed job at the time, drealing every night of what next peuice of gear would be nice to fit the demand of mic a full drum despite two overheads in paired microphones in stereo with cartridge that can change from 360° to more specific soundcource and so on. It ends up with abeautiful 16-tracks with magic hand faders and many stereophonic opportunities that goes trought machines and digital recorder to end up on the computer after mixing session. So the sound was more than a priority in the lenght of time

It beguan with a 8-track with limited gear and ends up w/ over miced situation (because the gear was designed to record live and studio rock bands with amp miced and full set for drums and so on. Ouittakes liked DI boxes a lot also it permit to have a sound both very clean and also the sound of the amps w/ light distorsion the mix for 3 musicians used most of the 16-tracks and the result was more than nice after a while, you can hear the sound quality on this particular CD

To add up bonus tracks to close the pouttakes (finally prollific & exeeding discography) a temporary studio situation at mauriac sound city during the last day of the six day session for the art of skalping by ass n dick outtakes played there with different set up more amped up and the reverb of the concrete wall can be heard on 3 tracks, one end up as side a 1st track of the LP, here is as bonus a song by outtakes dubbed by spoken word by mat of Allen Ginsberg Poem ‘transcription of organ music’ (it was also from HOWL but finally it was footnotes to howl who was sent to Montréal for mastering (it may appear on the internal releases for the band w/o abstract number, and no real issued authentic CD
It seemed I have to justify, as the guardian of the temple, this self created label (with a little help from my friends) because I still run it, spend time on it, design the booklet, print the artwork, back up the stuff on cloud, make it happen, make tracks available for public download (as I already said one thousand people downloaded a single side of a future LP, a configuration of a CD that must have been cuted and shaved up to fit the demands of the quality on a long player phonograph (meaning 20min + per sides) so cut in two 41 min tracks & stuff like that (some engineer & technicians musrt remember my alcool fueled conversations to issue a record like Steve Reich did on Warner output of ECM records, meaning a 30min+ side, thinks engineer didn t do anymore except some, & I don t got this super powers , as many engineers were tired to explain to cut it tought pro tools which I finaly assumed to do. To be honest thanks again for the hardcore supporting (see list below)

So enjoy this bandcamp add-on to listen to the full experience of the total play time/Total recording time (TRT) of 64min 57sec (plus 4 bonus; and a piece of free silence [that push the totalplaying time at more than 2 hours] w/ add’l music from the latest of latest out//takes efforts, to compare as the CBS president does w/ the career of unlikes like Janis Joplin “it has been a beautiful candle, that burn with brightness and beautiful incandescence but unfortunatly burn way too quick” I didn t think we have the kind of talent Joplin have or at least in a very different way but I think we make some beautiful sound at the time and disbanded too quickly despite many efforts to continue in two sepârate duets, but even the miracle of technology didn t save our balls (as overdubing and stuff as we may have planned) but the one-take recording fairly used to record live rehearshall in a stereophonic manner & w/ a lot of gear (even over equiped for a 3-piece musical band (the gear was planned for a classic 4-piece rock band w/ full drums equipment even the little stand for the ground drum) in any way (because I engineer it I guess and spend time to archive trought DVDs and clouds (which truly save at least my balls after as usual my ol’ computer seriously crashed and a hard drive full of music had been mistakenly erased (and the back up drive prove to cannot be reached (as it used old IDE system)))) well this adventure was nice and this is not really a turning point (well in the publication of our sound yes) but a definitive stop of our exceeding prolific discography. As I already written at least ten times I’m so proud, as a producer, musician and human being that two copies of our LP record album effort will be considered for archiving at the one and only BnF, because suddently in this music-industry slease, some consider that Art can be also music and that those who didn t sell doesn t mean they haven t got any talent and also realize that there is a real underground circuit of music production, thank to home studio technology and to technology that became affordable, real musicians making real music (that don t have any airplay or commercial sucess) but despite all is a true annd respectable part of the cultural landscape of this country’s music production versus over-played & nicely paid ‘artist’ that take most of the pannel w/ marketing plans & public songs directed to a very large audience (trought lenght, trought sound marketing reshearcher tought they would like to hear and consider sadly music as entertainment, that’s why I have a lot of contempt for music-industry standards & even more for ‘indies’ label w/ credibility that began to do what everyone wants & what makes that the employees are paid, money. Sadly enough the enternment way & music industry doesn t offer a space for original creations, that could be percived as difficult (as John Cage’s music except in the Art world the contemporary is more musically accepted by critics and audience) There was also a time a programm was launched for what they called ‘difficult’ music meaning music who has poor access to airplay and doesn t make enough money for the industry. I mean we were poorly paid for performance, except when we used to be selected to play a real event nicely paid we didn t exist at this time & have been easily replaced (despite efforts mùade by a nice & real vinyl merchant at Toulouse) (a new maybe all the band didn t know, in any way it was way too late to go back to our instrument as many must have forgotten the complexity of the music we used to made even if there as large space for improvisational soundscape, a kind of two way transmition w/ the audience, a way to connect w/ the public, sometimes it worked greatly other times there was less appeal but anyway Outtakes had lived, Outtakes disbanded, long live Outtakes !

You can see a lot more at abndcamp and be able to listen to the full album (after many correction, we title the end of time with last song music and also do the contrary, because the tracks were long recorded in one take and so…we f@cked up a bit

At least all of this time w/o mats trip edit a video  in 16/9 with dolby digitalw here the sound is the last song instead of trying to re-do outtakes long gone video( more to made a rear projection for our future live of the Eclipse Tour)

The End of Time (abstractLP03/CD08/DG) February 15, 2016

Posted by abstractsoundrec in abstract/concrete, Art, Bandcamp, Culture.
add a comment

Mat s trip finally released on Bandcamp his amazing ‘magnus opus’ from 2008, originally on  double compact disc w/ a peice of near an hour ‘the last song’ recorded before a car accident near fatal, and the end of time recorded after a near-fatal car accident + the big come down carefully mixed down and recorded on the new 16-tracks CONSOLE AT Abstract Soundscapes Studios, lot (46) at Faycelles, FR (46) w/ live field recording of rain/wind and cxcarefully mixed with new FX machine at (now unoccupied) Abstract Sound I Studios

To fit the Bandcamp demands, ythe tracks had been splitted up in two comprehensive equak parts (near 20 min each for LP sound quality satisfaction, and the use of psycho-accoustic effect in overdrive, 96k/24bits drive almost screams! (the ultimate digital scream))

The argument from 2009 about making a single sided LP album (abstractLP03) had been discussed over and over w/ Steve (thanks) at Sterling Sound, NYC, NY and also at Grey Market Mastering had Mister Harris Newman (our first LP master official) that I could make a single side of near 30 min (which wasn t posssible because of side timings, and also that psycho accoustic effects use is not compatible w/ 30 mn tracking, for sound fidelity reproduction.

So here we are, a new master of the LP in two sides of near 20 min each, with slow fade in/out for title track “The End of Time” and also “The Big Come Down” both originally on Disc Two of this abstractCD008, the first track ‘the end of time’ titlted because recorded before a near-fatal car crash (did u see the last min, was it like near death experiences ?) that is offensive by the unprepared, improvised vocals but when giving afterthought doesn t really fit the style of the devellopment with two gtrs, so a edit is on its way to a non-offensive track, not because but because it doesn t really fit right;;;;an artistic personnal view w/o any pressure but the public/audience

But about making a 33 and a third instalment (abstractLP03) the sound of newly cut version needs new remastering by Harris Newman at Grey Market, Canada that we postponned & thanks to credits of the first LP master (we loose digital tapes, how preservation of DG tapes are so important almost a mission to us, living in this all digital age tracking) goes to Frederic Schaffer at Dubplates and Mastering, Berlin (Germany) also Rashad Becker that mastered the LPx2 version of abstractLP04 A Free Peace of Sky at Dubplates & Mastering also for this double LP also availabLe at Bandcamp) and give a full listen of the original one-take recording on 16-tr , mixed afterwhile of the initial 47 minutes recording of this ‘masterpiece’ of ‘magnus opus’ codenamed ‘the ecstatic peace session’ to stop rumble in head ands give peace melodies and clear frequencies of masking and unalienate the peaceful recording that took place at that time (for month and months at Abstract Sound)

Give it a fair listening on Soundcloud (of the track of a tota time of 47min57sec)

And also give a listening of what would become the tr’ack cut in two to fit LP quaality consideration and time/space of 20min / side, plus original CD tracks like the 38 min The Big Come Down (also cut in two) and a cover of Cat Power’s Great Expectations (w/ or w/o (you) the lyrics and simple gtr w/ lots of reverbs and so on…cute)originally written by chan marshall (dreading futures/doorman music (bmi)) courtesy of matador ole 202 all rights reserved all wrongs reversed) This tracking includes original master tapes recorded at abstract soundscapes studios (rec/mix engineering : mat) endorsement : fender , boss fx, ibanez electronics, rhode nt2, shure micrrophones, behringer audio solutions, sony professional mini disc solution, creative sound cards for personal computer, cubase, cool edit pro 2

Since 2013, we develloped a good relationship with some record stores and as a kind of next waves of sales for the now almost sold out Outtakes LP album, an unmarked CD-R in color paper was inserted on the copies sold throught record stores, those CD-R  were llimited to 50 copies and bear no information on their content, it s not a copy of the LP (which got his own download card – see next) it’ s an original sound recording of a live event, the only one from 16-tracks analogic console to Sony Professional Mini Disc & then mixed at abstract soundscapes in January 2006, just before the LP comes out  (originally designed to be a 3-sided  LP) which original edition was of 525 (code named abstractLP01-A) finally the added disc was free on abstractLP01-B and put inside the shinny finish on cardboard sleeves without a note. Now FYI (!) here is the tracklisting , the timings and even a way to listen to it throught our bandcamp add-on

Several boxes of records (the few that remain on stock – the story is that we almost made 10 years to sold or most likely give ’em throught promotional or free hand giving to artist , musicians & some friends and local communities and use it as a demo disc for several better distributed label that say you don t fit, and you must adjust, even the creme de la creme indie in france) were sold with the honorable efforts of Paul Emille Vynils at Toulouse, FR (view map), some still out of public boxes or piloed up in contemporary rock & it become a rarity by its small edition (according to patrimony law launched by BNF in France)

Still the ‘no-distribution’ , ‘no marketing’ plan finally worked out over the years, of course we didn t sell enough in the beguinning (as in the end) to make it up to collect enough money to produce something new again (there is this abstractLP03  in the athmosphere that the artist would like to see on a single sided LP, but the project has been postponed by the temporary illness of the art maker, but it might come out, also there is a kind of issue with ‘appropriation art’ trechniques that snapshot a inch by inch of back artwork, but a artist-like-minded-mate made a superb shot of one of his painting to solve the problem, but the recording time has to be splitted 20/20 min, so that s part of an effort that need financing and also soundworkers that will bring life to this project that coulld finally work out (for info the title track has been downloaded more than 525 times, which represents the original edition of oouttakes’ LP for example, and about downloads the double project (code named abstractLP04) ‘peace of sky/free peace’ (for yoko ono & john lenon) all LP sides (5) has been downloaded more than 250 times each which represent a 1,000 digital edition of the LP version (mastered by dubplates and mastering at Berlin by , respectively, Frederic Schaffer and Rashad Becker)

Suffice to say that the downoad card has to be updated, there are now all 3 sides in pristine FLAC (a new standard for no compression music, larger files of course) and the 320k MP3 here are the links : (for more info write us at our new mailbox abstract.concrete@yahoo.com )

FLAC : Side A (ttl time : 20’57”) / Side B (ttl time 17’57”) / Side C (ttl time 20’35”)

MP3 (Mpeg Layer 3 at 320k/bps)  : Side A (TTL Time: ) / Side B (TTL Time: 17.27) / Side C (TTl Time)

As abstractLP02 & LP03 there is the double feature Sky Piece & A Free Peace Of Sky as well released as Lp records master, those versions are as well on full download on the main website and includes different tracklisting than the Compact Disc version, additional tracks as well unreleased and different timings, in order to fit the album onto four sides.

Sorry for not updated sooner but these are the news from abstract/concrete, we try to launch a concept where the tracks are free to download and where you can donate throuh Paypal if you want to support us or if you like the idea of free cultural works. We try to focus as well on further collaborations with various artists that we hope we will meet throught the internet.

The media section is offering as well many albums on ambient ground for full lenght, high quality, free downloads, those works still copyrighted by the owner of the works and are distributed this way under Creative Commom licence as well, we support the project and like the idea too that music can be distributed on the web and reach an audience, a brand new one than the usual DIY project launched from the room in the middle of the woods, well the stats shows that it really hits an audience and we think that music really exist if it is shared by people from all around the globe.

So the tapes are listened and that’s cool, guess you’ve noticed the artwork and the changing tracks availbale for stream and now as well podcast, download and even ringtone. We try to upload tracks as much as we could to make discover to the internet public the various tapes recorded at abstract sound and made by Outtakes & Mat’s Trip. We try to shearch for rare versions and rare tracks and then upload them to web.

This is kind of catchy hypnotic sounds, very relaxing frequencies that you can listen and fall asleep with on the other hand we run as well death666 with its super vitamined music from artist on more punk hardcore ground with a project of compilation inspired by the techno/punk tapes and the switch from electro to electric bands.

We have more space on the internet to promote abstract concrete bands with new sections on the website dedicated to liner notes and download of albums, more room for the sound and the bands as we found website that could take our long tapes of soundscapes with great sound quality.

Hope you enjoy it and see ya soon. Mat. Abstract Sound Recordings.

1722156453_d6ea2d3b3bHi everyone on the Abstract Soundscapes planet. we have fresh recordings to brought to your hears in the experimental domain, and newly encoded in FLAC (free lossless audio codec) that allow to bring to you in full download Outtakes 2005 live performance in FLAC download the music right here, sleeping music, music for daydreaming or for relaxing or for anything else like reading,  dreaming and drinking cocktails, be on our stratosphere, in the sky, near jupiter or the moon, in night time, city life, outdoor style, music for reaching another level of consciousness for daydreaming that s the whole concept of abstract/concrete recording, the sister label, in a idea of evolutive contemporary guitar based ambient music, played at the time with a fender performer a great guitar for making simple and touching melodies, like a jazzmaster style but build in the 70’s, thez concpet of abstract sound recording is reaching a quite opposite concept than death666, reahing as well a totally different audience, not in the pure noisist punk hardcore domain, well the music countains some quite wacky guitar noise solo, but falls as well in the field of relaxing ambient music, not in the sense that the music could be played not loud and do not focus on it, I mean you can go far throught this kind of hypnotics c atchy sweet melody, the Outtakes live performance was said to be a psychedelic experience in itself even in a punk rock concert. Experimental soundscapes played and made with electric instruments and sounding like  electronics, like FX like a samplers. Many combination have been made with the guitars, I think by reaching this technical level of FX, delays, samplers, reverberations, studio machines of f.x. and so on in order to produce dreaming experimental post rock music in the meaning of an ambient vast soundtrack for an imaginary movie.

Here is what you can downlaod for free from both abstract concrete artists, MT and Outtakes, we are happy to offer full lenght recordings in a high quality of encoding (both in MP3 Lame encoding for those recordings) Side C unrealeased of the 33rpm of Outtakes by clicking this link you can fully download the Side C, in MP3 Side B is here in full download stereo, download track.in MP3 too.


About Mat’s Trip his latest releases from 2007 The End Of Time, A free Peace Of sky and Sky Piece had been proudly released on dubplates at Berlin and you can have the full lenght recording of The End Of Time here (full download) experimental recording of the triple LP set countaining The Big Come Down (download here)& The Last Song (download here full lenght recordings) in the field of abstract music Mat’s Trip hold his electric guitar smash it against the floor giving birth to new sounds with multi effect playing, one take recording idea, and full stereo experimental radical mix, spectral recordings in the field of abstract music.

“I’d be very proud of these recordings since I do quite nothing since many years those recordings were for me very special and very intense in a sense, of pushing forward the experimental field with stereophonic recordings, RIAA Equalisation mix (sorry Harris!), and as well playing an electric instrument (guitar)  like if it was an electronic peace of gear, and get this texture and sound , harmony and melody, no matter how technical the sound will be it have to be processed by many electronic machines like samplers and also live f.xx I’ve got quite a collection of Boss/Ibanez Pedals, a sampler, two circuit, 3 tracks out, 2 or 3 mics on the amp,

and the sound came to me like a blessing, so relaxing pieces of sound that i later arranged and mixed on 16 tracks with very good and out of space sound in the state of the art of the recording which is possible in home studio place and this is not heard or very estetic with outside noises that come along the track and send it to higher space like an ambient music that you can listen beyond the hypnotic state like a kind of musical ritualk where you send your brain to outter space through extatic guitar playing melodies, haronies that come toward many pedals, delays, phasers, reverbs, and then all the 8 tracks goes through the many effects machines and the stereo sound is killer” (Mat’s Trip ITW – December 2008)

About Outtakes you can download as well this live recording recorded in 2005 at la madeleine in villefranche de rouergue this live set includes the basic songs from outtakes, elegy for the sacred butterfly, live impro of noise, mexico city blues for jack kerouac mixed very nicely (download the live track here) plus download a bonus DivX video right here


And then again many tracks from Mat’s trip late Cd/LPs are available throught this site, and you can have also many tarcks like In the Sky, The Theatre Is Closed, Sky Performance and more specially Sky Piece Side A (download here) and Side B(download here) and also A Free Peace Of Sky Side A (full download here) and Side B (full download here)

All those works are for free and protected by copyright laws under a Creative Commom licence, those experimental works are produced by abstract sound recordings, all songs mixed and recorded by Mat at abstract soundscapes studios, (c) 2006,2007 abstract/concrete recordings

hope you will enjoy those abstract sound works brought to you in full lenght MP3 digital audio by the abstract concrete team, hope to meet a new public on the net and to show what kind of musical works we produce if you want to support us you can make a donation on paypal, for the rest we have many Outtakes LP still available most of the rest of the catalog is sold out, we try to reach very special kind of music with references to Tim Hecker and Sonic Youth and to the experimental works of those producers to come on the other blog a list of the video we love each artist each month. Those recordings in free MP3 download document both bands at different stage in live recording, in studio and rehearshall sessions all those musical works had been brought to you using MediaFire and protected by copyrights laws. Hope you will enjoy those sensitive subtle recording of our band when we were playing those songs

enjoy those free sound recordings, we could advice as well to get Jet Audio 7 a freeware to play MP3 with great quality and the new FLAC codec which didn t compress the sound like an MP3, it has been said to be the next HQ soun d format for the web, more bigger to download it could be necessary to have DSL connection to the internet. And the sound is much more enjoyable, as soon as we might update we might post new FLAC of free download albums by abstract/concrete’ s artists : Outtakes & MT.

Enjoy those sound recordings and don t hesitate to post comments. We have been working closely with the artists to rpoduce free internet recordings, those downloads are legal because the artists deceide to give away the sound, it is as well a protest against music on the internet, we love that people could share our vibes anywhere and we enjoy the many downloads of full albums, that s a great way of broadcasting music. See ya soon. tchus.
