Attenuation Circuit

Attenuation Circuit is a fine label based in Augsburg, Germany. What makes AC stand out over other labels in the experimental scene are their attention to fine packaging and cover art. Most releases come in special open up boxes that feature covers printed on rice paper. Most releases contain special, hand painted inserts as well. DWM is proud to be a part of this fine label.

 

Artist: Doc Wör Mirran

Title: Mask

Label: Attenuation Circuit Format: CD-R Catalog #: ACR1017 Release Date: April 1st, 2012

Recorded quasi live in DWM's first ever rehearsal and recording studio "Smells Like Fischer To Me" studios, this release is quite different from most DWM recordings, being sort of a mix between ambient electronic and tribal/world music. Featuring the live, improvised musical contributions of Joseph B. Raimond, Peter Schuster, Stubs, Knut Friebel, Helmut Burghart and Kid G., the backing tracks used during the live recording were by Frans De Waard, Laurent Gabiot, Klaus Jochim and Emil B. Recorded in 1994 at the same time as the three cassette box set Attention Spam and the normal cassette Deformed, this is also similar in musical style. Full color cover printed on rice paper, packed in a very nice clear plastic box and featuring several inserts. Cover art from the Mask series of etchings by Joseph B. Raimond

Title: Hominine parts 1 to 3

Label: Attenuation Circuit Format: CD Catalog #: ACU1018 Release Date: February 9th, 2020

On December 3rd, 2017, Frans de Waard came down from Holland, Sascha Stadlmeier came up from Augsburg, and Adrian Gormley came over from Berlin, and together with the local Fürth DWM crew they spent the day recording, experimenting and improvising. The results were six tracks, the first three of which are featured on this CD. Musically, it is, in the words of our friend Gerald Fiebig, "at times lyrical, at times plaintive, sometimes melodic, sometimes weaving itself into the overall tapestry of sounds, the saxophone proves itself capable of bridging the gap between a melody-based and the more sound-based musical approach followed by most of the players here. Some of the best moments of this three-part album that was culled from one single live session happen when the saxophone interplays with percussive noises from plastic bottles and all sorts of other sounding devices, as well as spaced-out guitars and a theremin. The album gets darker and denser from part to part, ending up as a sort of industrial lounge jazz for a David Lynch movie.

Title: Hominine parts 4 to 6

Label: Attenuation Circuit Format: CD Catalog #: ACU1031 Release Date: March 5th, 2021

Recorded at the same time as the first part of this two CD series and with the same line-up, this release picks up musically where the first part left off. Very abstract and intense, and a testament to this creative lineup.
