Here's finally Geräuschmanufaktur #25!!! A release which I've been looking forward to since Michael Muennich told me about this beautiful project for the first time.
After his great collaboration with Michael Esposito and GX Jupitter-Larsen on "The Wraiths Of Flying A" (CD out on Firework Editions) and releasing the epic LP "There Must Be A Way Across This River / The Abject" on his very own Fragment Factory, it's his newest journey into the unknown world of the electronic voice phenomena.
For "Chalkboard Dust" Muennich and Esposito created a minimal composition of fieldrecordings, amplified small objects and EVP. Their track gets accompanied by John Duncan's breathtaking but carthatic voice-ritual "Stay Alive" on the b-side.
The formate of a double-sided 7" flexi record wasn't chosen randomly for this release, since it fits almost perfectly for this document in sound of haunted school tales...
released July 1, 2015

Resign likely spent seven minutes thinking this up. An app, some input, and Voila!: 'Among Trees'. Like garbage going into a DeLorean. Instant time travel!
I love this. No unnecessary music.
