Francisco Meirino "The Ruins" CD
From the ruins of hours of multi-channel recordings created during his residency at EMS Stockholm, Francisco Meirino has created a definitive statement of time and discovery.
Inspired by the Serge and Buchla modular synthesizers, he felt as if he were standing before ancient ruins, familiar yet unknown. After allowing these recordings to sit and decay over time, he discovered, when he finally came back to them, that all that was left were the pieces and ruins of sonic archives.
The end result is a masterpiece statement, an exercise in abandonment and discovery.
The ruins Francisco Meirino has unearthed reach deep into our psyche from seemingly the most unlikely source, machines, evoking a story of damage and resurrection.

Peter J. Woods "Today Is Horrible" CD
Recorded between 2014 and 2018, Today is Horrible chronicles the sonic elements from six different performance pieces written and performed by Woods during that time. Although these recordings rely on Woods’ usual palette of sounds (sine waves, crumbling static, obscured text, stretches of silence, etc), TiH reorganizes those elements into a powerful and haunting collection of deceptively straightforward compositions that only reveal themselves after multiple listens. The album touches on a number of different socially charged themes, ranging from the failure of political change within unwavering social paradigms to the construction of whiteness within media, that remain connected through an unwavering critical stance towards the modern social condition. However, these notions remain submerged under crushing walls of distortion, heavy synth drones, and barely whispered vocals, only coalescing for those with the patience to revisit the work on multiple occasions.

Andrea Borghi "VHS" LP
Reflecting the artist's passion for cinema, VHS consists of audio recordings that were produced through an openVHS Recorder using manipulated videotapes. Most source sound is taken from background parts edited from old tapes of obscure and underground cinema. Mechanical memories and the suggestions of past cinematographic sets are converted and re-contextualized in order to explore the expressive possibilities of an archaic media.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, released in a limited edition of 100 LPs packaged in deluxe tip-on gatefold jackets.

Seers "From the beginning...until the End" CD
In 2004-2005 Pete Swanson and Gerritt Wittmer formed the group Seers in Oakland, California. They played a handful of shows (including at the famed Il Corral in Los Angeles) and recorded several studio sessions.

This work was planned to be released on a now-defunct imprint and was shelved following the labels dissolve. Despite the passing of several years, the value of this collaborative work has endured. Destined to undergo a journey and be resurrected on the other side. An exercise in time, challenging communication and the transfer of energy.

Seers literally and intentionally incorporated the ability to "transfer energy" during improvisations via developing instrumentation that allowed one player to influence the other's sound through direct routing. Much of the music is built on various feedback loops and other chains of chance.

This is tape music, this is drone music, this is psychic music, this is spiritual music. Like the sound of the universe, undulating and folding unto itself, filled with transference and decadent illusion.

Here now in its original entirety is Seers "From the beginning...until the End."

100 copies of the album will include a bonus disc "Live Testament", recorded at Il Corral, Los Angeles by Damion Romero.

Gerritt Wittmer is a sound and performance artist based in Oakland, California. He is in the band Names and curates the Misanthropic Agenda imprint.

Pete Swanson is a musician currently based in Brooklyn, New York. His most recent work includes "Punk Authority" on Software and "Man With Potential" and "Pro Style" on Type Records, which all vaguely resemble severely corroded dance music. He was formerly a member of the psychedelic noise/drone act Yellow Swans.

Seitz Versus Gendreau "S/T" LP
Seitz Versus Gendreau is a collaborative experiment in using concrete music compositional strategies.
These pieces were composed with created and found sound captured in San Francisco.

Chorus After Rains: A strategy where we each use the same raw sound clips with different results. The two pieces are then melded to create one piece of music, the different modules becoming inseparable from each other.

Things Lost That Will Never Be Found: A composition with live instruments, moving from a toy piano to various invented motor instruments; a piece that transitions from melody to noise.

Trains Will Not Stop: Another Grand Surface Noise opera (Nr. 9), using the various sounds from records, composed by Gendreau and re-mixed by Seitz using accelerometer recordings collected in San Francisco during 2005.

SEITZ, based in Oakland, California and formerly a member of Taxodiaceae, makes a rare foray into recording. Seitz is fascinated by the re-contextualization of ephemeral sound such as- streams from radio, lost and forgotten records, tangents of passing conversation, fragmented voicemails, pieces of cassettes sound, field recordings by amateurs, tv movie themes, and random and despised podcasts- and the breakdown of the music bubble that surrounds most contemporary music consumers. Seitz envisions a world where listeners actually listen and no music is fetishized.

GENDREAU has composed and performed solo, as well as in several group configurations since 1979. His former group Crawling With Tarts (1983-1998) used ideas revolving around elementalism and pre-language states. Gendreau has elaborated on these ideas while adding concepts based on his studies in physics, philosophies attending to temporal and environmental persistence, applications of parataxis, and experiments with small motors and turntable mechanisms. His performances have involved sounds from one-off transcription discs cast by others in the middle of the last century, and those cut in his studio using a decrepit lathe. More recently, Gendreau has sought to extend these later studies, and to use buildings as a speaker. He records the infrasonic vibrations of the performance space and in the concert, he uses the structure's resonances as an additional instrument in his site-specific compositions. These practices are based in part on his current work as an acoustician, working primarily on low-vibration and noise design for buildings.

Released in a limited edition of 90 copies, packaged in deluxe tip-on jacket.

Vertonen "HACE/26,250' b/w 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5'E" LP
The audio on this LP was inspired by early efforts to explore extreme locations on earth, and the clash between the will of humans, the limits of their bodies, and the immutable laws of the natural world-the latter which can easily destroy both of the first two.

The 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5'E" side is based on the 1960 dive by Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh in the bathyscaphe Trieste to the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point on earth.

This side aims to mirror the combination of analytic scientific preparation and calibration that the team did and the inherent and unavoidable human concern of "if something goes wrong, there's a good chance we could die."

The HACE/26,250' side was inspired by research on High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), a condition where oxygen is not getting to the brain.

HACE has the greatest potential for striking in the Dead Zone, (26,250 feet), where available oxygen cannot sustain human life for more that 3 hours. Of course, for someone aiming to summit Mt Everest, there are "only" 2,750 feet remaining-and, the person still has to descend back through the Dead Zone. With their goal so closely in reach, a climber may sacrifice the rational (saving their life) for the sake of achieving their goal (summiting Everest).

HACE/26,250' is a soundtrack for a body closing down; heart rates slowing, blood flow slowing, everything once moist and carrying life slowly becoming brittle, dry, and unable to function due to duress.

Vertonen is Blake Edwards and devices-for this LP, the primary device is a Russian Polivoks synthesizer. Based in Chicago, Illinois, Edwards has performed at numerous festivals in the US, as well as toured the US and Japan. In addition to numerous 7" records, 3" CDRs, full-length CDRs, and split 12" records, Vertonen also has released three CDs funded by City of Chicago grants (as is this record).

This is a split label release with C.I.P.

Misanthropic Agenda is excited to announce 2 new LPs!

The first, a new installment in Giuseppe Ielasi's 15 tapes series. Great contemporary sound work from Italy and mastermind behind the Senufo Editions label. Cut at 45 rpm and probably one of the most brilliant and detailed sounding piece of vinyl we have released! Really, this sounds AMAZING!

Second, is a conceptual tour record of sorts from Francisco Meirino, Gerritt Wittmer, Paul Knowles, Kam Hassah, and Alleypisser. I just returned home from said tour and must say it was really a great pleasure playing with all of these artist. Im happy to see this record stand as a document of current work from everyone involved.

I should also mention, both of these records are in editions of 90 copies and that Metamkine will be getting some copies to distribute in Europe.

Enjoy! - G.

We are absolutely thrilled to announce these 2 new releases.

Firstly, if you have not heard Francisco Meirino before (or his old moniker Phroq) please take note. (and crawl out from under rock) He has been creating soundworks for more than a decade and this new FM LP is definitely some of his best work. This is a very nice edition that will not be around for long.

Second, I cant believe it, after well more than 5 years from the start of this project, Lasse Marhaug and Francisco Meirino deliver some conceptual masterwork headfuck in the form of a 7 inch. So insanely cut by Rashad Becker at D & M in Berlin. Yes, please listen to this at both 33 and 45 rpm. Quite possibly the longest playing 7 inch ever.

Now available in the distribution catalog.

Francisco Meirino
"Recordings of voltage errors, magnetic fields, on-site testimonies & tape tension" LP

On "Recordings of voltage errors, magnetic fields, on-site testimonies & tape tension" Francisco Meirino continues to explore his curiosity of failed sounds and field recordings. Using computer, reel to reel tape machine, analog synth, field recorder, various home electronics, piezo transducers and electro-magnetic sensors, Francisco stitches together a brilliant mix of electronics and acoustic sounds. With this release he shows maturity and compositional craftsmanship that is clearly some of his best work to date.
Pressed in a limited edition of 90.

Since the inception of the band Sissy Spacek in 1999 by core members John Wiese and Corydon Ronnau, the primary focus has been on small tight groups playing small tight music. The first large ensemble was a 13-Tet in Los Angeles (documented on the California Ax 4xCD set released by Helicopter) which was guided by a graphic score. The two sets (and encore) in this documentation are a collective improvisation based on simple instructions recorded at 21 Grand in Oakland, California.
Limited edition of 300 packaged in full color digipak.

Available in the distribution catalog.

According to one 17th-century physician, hysteria was "the most common of diseases except fevers" and became the most frequently diagnosed disease in history. This multimedia installation explores portrayals of hysterical women from film and television history. A broad range of source materials will craft the perfect chamber of suffering that will strike a dark familiarity with anyone who has grown up with these images from the American media.

Note: If you have placed a distro order or made an attempt to contact Misanthropic Agenda as of late and are experiencing delays, please know that Gerritt is currently in Alaska and will not be back home for at least another week. Having gone to Alaska for a family funeral, Gerritt suffered a collapsed lung and had to undergo surgery last week to attempt to repair the damage. So far things are looking good, but he has had very limited access to the internet while in Alaska, and has obviously been very ill and in a great deal of pain, thus being unable to stay in contact with several people. Hopefully things will be relatively "back to normal" by the end of the month, but please be patient if you are waiting for a package or an email response - rest assured you will get it. Thanks.
June 8, 2002
