Jeroen Diepenmaat – Frayed Air (S.1a, S.1b, S.1c)
Review in Experimental Music From The Netherlands:

IMG_20151031_185308

For his work Jeroen Diepenmaat works with vinyl, but unlike most other turntablists he starts with blank vinyl LP’s which he during his performances slowly scratches, mutilates and grooves. With each scratch he creates new loops and this slowly builds up to new works.

On Esc.rec. three of these performances have now been releases as one of a kind LP’s. All limited to an edition of one. And of course one stream (not available as download, sadly enough).

The music on these slabs of vinyl consists of slowly evolving scratches as you might have guessed. Though other than expected this doesn’t turn into loud noise structures. Instead it stays all very quiet in some sort of meditative state.

Jeroen Diepenmaat – Frayed Air (S.1a, S.1b, S.1c)
Review in Bodyspace:

bodyspace

Jeroen Diepenmaat é um artista holandês com queda para aliar som e imagem nas suas obras, que vão desde instalações complexas, a performances que primam pela introspecção e a contemplação. Frayed Air, lançado há um par de dias pela esc.rec, encaixa perfeitamente nesta última categoria.

Editado numa série de três 12”, com os nomes “Sediment 1a”, “Sediment 1b”, and “Sediment 1c”, Frayed Air é o registo da sua aparição no festival Muziek bij de Buren, onde Jeroen se socorreu de lixas, facas e outros objectos ásperos para manipular quatro gira-discos em simultâneo. O concerto foi gravado directamente em vinil e a paisagem sonora final é meditativa q.b. e carregada de subtilezas próprias do material utilizado. Frayed Air está disponível para audição no bandcamp da esc.rec e acreditem quando vos dizemos que é um dos registos mais inusitados e relaxados que vão ouvir hoje.

Jeroen Diepenmaat – Frayed Air (S.1a, S.1b, S.1c)
Article in The Vinyl Factory:

THIS ARTIST CUT VINYL WITH KNIVES AND SANDPAPER FOR ONE-OF-A-KIND RELEASE

FrayedAir-3

Jeroen Diepenmaat releases destructive sound experiment in limited edition of three records.

The sound of a knife through wax may be enough to make your skin crawl, but for artist Jeroen Diepenmaat it has formed the basis of a new work, in which he has recorded the sound of pristine black wax vinyl being cut with knives and distorted with sandpaper.

Recorded from a live performance at ‘Muziek bij de Buren’ festival in De Perifeer in which Diepenmaat carved and sculpted four blank records played simultaneously on turntables, the sound from Frayed Air was then pressed to the flip side of three of the records used in the performance, each of which is now being released in a super limited edition of one.

It’s not the first time the Dutch artist has worked with vinyl, his playful take on bird song and turntables ‘Pour des dents d’un blanc éclatant et saines’ one of the iconic images of the definitive 2011 exhibition The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl.

Released as a trio of single discs, all three parts of Frayed Air [Sediment 1a, Sediment 1b, and Sediment 1c] have been pressed on 12? black vinyl, and are housed in laser cut sleeves, with hand-written notes by the artist.

Press release

Sediment is a new series in the Esc.rec. catalogue. It is in a completely new ‘one-of-a-kind-art-object-directly-related-to-live-performance’ category. The three Frayed Air albums by Jeroen Diepenmaat are the first three Sediment releases: Sediment 1a, Sediment 1b, and Sediment 1c. You are currently looking at Sediment 1c.

The Frayed Air albums (S.1a, S.1b and S.1c) are the record of three live performances by Jeroen Diepenmaat at the ‘Muziek bij de Buren’ festival in De Perifeer. During these performances grooves are made in one side of blank vinyl records, while playing simultaneously on four turntables, using knives and sand paper. Thus Jeroen Diepenmaat physically sculpts a live soundscape with a gradual accumulation of subtle pops, clicks, hiss and noise, occasionally using additional sounds from pre-recorded vinyl. The result is extremely meditative, ingenious and beautiful.

Afterwards the recordings of these concerts are cut on the other side of the same blank vinyl that was used as an instrument during the performance. This makes all three Frayed Air albums totally unique and directly linked to the live experience where they originated; they are a concert registration and an instrument united in one object.

Frayed Air comes on black 12″ vinyl in a white outer sleeve and a green inner sleeve, both laser cut. The release details are hand written on the back by Jeroen Diepenmaat.

Jeroen Diepenmaat is a visual artist with a predilection for sound. In his works he combines visual elements with audio. This ranges from installations that generate sound, to drawings of 7″ records, to objects that require to be used for performances.

Diepenmaat likes to poetically point to almost forgotten details or focus on small sounds. And just as sound always takes time, the passing of time is also often reflected in his site-specific installations for exhibitions. One (generally unnoticed) element in the exhibition space is carefully changed to become a determining factor.

In short; Jeroen Diepenmaat creates omnifarious works, but always with the following keywords in mind: poetic, subtle, small, detail, sound, vinyl, slow, focus, time.

Jeroen Diepenmaat’s work was shown a.o. in Museum voor Moderne Kunst in Arnhem (NL), Martha Museum in Herford (D), La Casa Encendida in Madrid (SP), Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston (USA), Montevideo – Dutch Institute for Media Art in Amsterdam (NL), Extrapool in Nijmegen (NL), Serralves in Porto (P), Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam (NL).
