DIASTOLIC MURMURS (RICHARD CROW AND ADAM BOHMAN) WITH PAUL OBERMAYER (FURT)
The Diastolic Murmurs formed themselves in 1985 during electro-acoustic research within Phillip Wachsmanns legendary Electronic Music studio (now demolished) at the City Literary Institute, Room 53, Keeley House, Keeley Street, London WC2
Primarily their aesthetic was to explore as fully as possible the "occult" sound-world inherent in any given object or material (with a preference for the damaged, broken, and discarded) and their extraction or autopsy with the use of contact microphones.
In the mid 1980's they performed what they termed "live" Electronic Dissections, turning their microcosm into a macrocosm, acutely aware perhaps of Artaud's call for "sounds that cannot be endured". In their 30+ years career they have collaborated and performed with Dr Edward Scheer, Michael Prime, Furt, Clive Graham, and more recently with artist and writer Douglas Park and stylist and film Director Phoenix Blu-Coyle. Tonights performance with Paul Obermayer (one half of Furt) also features some very special mystery guests.
German Label run by German experimental artist and producer Matthias Horn releasing bespoke vinyl, CD and cassette releases by Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau, Dissecting Table, Steve Dalachinsky, Sudden Infant, Pacific 231 and many, many others.

MAMA BAER for the maincontrol (stupid time) w/ KOMMISSAR HJULER (Film)
FOR THE MAINCONTROL (Part 3 of Mama Baers series STUPID TIME) deals with the anticipation of the generalized other of a compulsion by society, a compulsion one always feels and has to handle with as an individuum not to become too much separated. First album by me created digitally at my home computer, all instruments played and recorded by me, text and voice by me, also mixing, film made later on for this track by me. Andrea Katharina Hjuler (Mama Baer)
