Dual - Fall
CEE recordings

Fall is the second in a series of CD's to feature live / archive material by Dual. This release captures a live performance at the Drone Records festival held at The Podewil in Berlin, Germany in April 2000. It includes six tracks; aringe, 70dN, baanstan, cee, mbe and rogacoln with a total playing time of just under 36 minutes.

The release is presented on two 3" CDR's in a stunning long format clear case with hand assembled transparency prints of a still taken from the film Links (by regular Dual collaborator GR.) The film was originally projected as a backdrop at the show in Berlin. This release is a limited run of 100 individually numbered cd's on the CEE label and will therefore be available for a short period only.

Part composed and part improvised this performance includes scattered light rhythms meeting punched slabs of bass over and under a washed out blissful drone of chords. Percussive clicks form into motorised gyres to round off the first disc. Metallic scrapes and waves of clouded shrills begin disc two, leading into a fractured soundscape of tearing screams and mournful unquantised static waves. Gas like haze drifts in until a low pulse and a lifting hum of tension rise's with a distorted clatter to finish.

Available as always through the Coombe records distribution network and available from exclusive Coombe Records / Dual stockists.

2001 Keimar Sty (CD)
Pe-gglass/ Kallus/ Nucell/ Ceem/ Casein
Coombe Records

Keimar Sty features five brand new tracks and is the first release on Coombe Records.

As always all the sounds on this release are derived from the guitar and this second full CD release shows Dual exploring rhythms and percussion coaxed from the guitar while applying various treatments and manipulation. Although some traditional methods of playing the guitar have been employed on the recordings of this album the finished mixes show no real sign of a plucked guitar string. Drones and textures are interwoven with clicks, pops and buzz from the electronics with subtle bass rhythm to create a soundbed of drifting melancholic ambience.
This album features new collaborators George Richardson (Cassette41) and Alice Kemp (Germ Seed).

2000 Caste (CD)
Blicks/ Chpst:k/ Spydel/ Wirm/ Crain/ Isochemic
CEE
 
Released in May 2000 on CD on the new Dual label CEE, this full length album comprises six tracks over 48 minutes and is an accomplished release of pure unfettered energy bursting to the seams. Forever bringing the sounds clearer to the front and then demolishing into pure nothing. Crackling interference and bubbling rhythms compound from a foundation built of syncopated static and whispers leaving the spinning clicks and tones to gyre and tumble beneath.

1999 Klanik (7")
Klanik/ 4tH
Drone Records
 
Released in September 1999, these two tracks represent another side to the Dual sound. Heavy percussion holds together the concentrated layered textures of the a-side Klanik and movement from below slowly peeling away at the ebbs reveals the underbelly of thick dense murk to be not so urh, murky...side-b 4th is a different story altogether, with a scratchy/itchy feel and a threatened double-bass maybe? More percussion drifts in this time from the far east that slowly takes its shape around some perfectly controlled feedback drifting in from the west.

Drimon DRMN (mp3)

1998 Drimon (7")
Drimon/ Coil
Dirter Promotions

Debut vinyl released in early 1998 saw Dual using percussive elements as a tool to hold together a bothered and vibrating tunnel of sound. Drimon has symphonic under/overtones that sneak in and around as Dual present a collage of aural spits, drones and streams of shifting spinning tones. Coil is a moody and regimented brooding piece that develops from a monotone bass creating a deliciously claustrophobic atmosphere into a mighty orchestral envelope of processed tumble.

1996 Drylite (Cassette)
Pyrrhic/ Hex.B/ Radial (balanced)/ Time (polar)/
Neopia/ Hyaline/ Eyedog (sular)
World Feedback

1995 Network Volume II - Various artists (CD)
Dual track - Myopia
Discus

Further Closer/ Shooting Glass/ Rime/ Influx
