about

First split cassette release for experimental musicians Left Hand Cuts off the Right and Nacht und Nebel.

Left Hand Cuts off the Right (Robbie Judkins) has created two blown-out, repetitive and glistening improvisations for zither and effects. Nacht und Nebel (Henry Davies) started with a cello and morphed the resulting sounds into swamp-like dirges of howls, rumbles and scratches.

Review from the Wire magazine,

"LHCOTR is the solo project of London's Robbie Judkins. On his side, Judkins uses zither and electronics to unleash a droney metallic surfaced narrative that surges and ebbs like some doped mechanical bull bucking in slow motion while cymbals are bowed nearby."

Review from Nine Hertz blog,

"This opaque blue tape holds two improvisations for zither, with the instrument being manipulated and multi-layered through effects to create a stinging, violent sounding cacophony. On Miconazole 1 for example the endless bell-like tones evoke that most onomatopoeic of words 'sonorous' the metallic and clanging sounds resembling a busy eastern restaurant's kitchen preparing hundreds of those dabba tiffin boxes that are shipped out to workers on trains.

Miconazole 2 has more of a sheet like feel, shifting bass notes sit under the scree of high-pitched and searing note patterns. Miconazole is actually the final wash of liquid a film goes through in developing, so this idea of darkroom sound tracking is an appealing one, the music slowly revealing meaning and feeling like a mystery either being created or revealed in painstaking steps. Either way, it's highly fascinating material once again."

Left Hand Cuts off the Right UK

During live performances he plays with bent electronics, East African instrumentation, hand percussion, field recordings, loops and effects. The sounds are of otherworldliness, twinkling twitchings, habitual drones, crackling rhythms and oddities directing you, transfixed, through the wonderment. ... more
