NOVI_SAD - MORT AUX VACHES
Mort Aux Vaches is the project of Thanasis Kaproulias, aka Novi_sad (http://novi-sad.net). Influenced by the pioneers of audio assault, Thanasis began generating sounds in 2005. No studies, no academic education, no scholarships, just pure learning by doing. Amplified environmental recordings, drone manipulations, structured ambient soundscapes, microtones vs overtones, all come together in a hyper structure of iconoclastic form. Novi_sad’s artistic output displays a high level of technical ability, as well as a sensitivity to the nuances of location. He has recorded for Touch, Sub Rosa and GH Records.
Mort Aux Vaches is developed from a performance at VPRO Amsterdam which was recorded and released on the seminal Dutch/German experimental label Staalplaat in 2008. It is an intense experience, dynamically wide and thoroughly consuming audio performed in total darkness. Check out the Staalplaat release here: http://novi-sad.net/releases/mort-aux-vaches/
