Title: The Remixes Part 1
Remixers: Roly Porter, Vatican Shadow, Kangding Ray
Format: 12″ transparent vinyl
Release date: First week of september 2012
Violetshaped is a collaboration between the enigmatic Violet
Poison and Berlin-based artist Shapednoise. “Violetshaped
Remixes Part 1″ is the ﬁrst of a remixes serie divided in several
The part 1 features remixes from Roly Porter – half of Vex’d who
released EP’s on labels like Planet Mu and a high-acclaimed debut
album on Subtext, spacing from contemporary classical music to
industrial and ambient – , Vatican Shadow – aka Dominick Fernow,
the magniﬁcent experimental artist coming from indie band Cold
Cave, releasing on british Blackest Ever Black and US Hospital
Productions, other than dozens of projects with names like
Tortured Hooker and Nuclear Pig Shit, with a full spectrum of
twisted post-industrial deviations and highly damaged rhythms -
and Kangding Ray – the well known “Musique Concrète” artist who
released on Raster Noton and created an unique sound using
analogue hardware and ﬁeld recordings on the edge between
experimentation and club culture.
Roly Porter’s remix on the A side is a subtle droning piece that
alternates raw noises and short lo-ﬁ rhythm sequences to
cinematic and spacious ambient ﬁelds.
On the ﬂip, Vatican Shadow delivers a Doom-Techno masterpiece
that got the unique attitude we can expect from him. He captures
the industrial vein of Violet Poison and brings us his unique
apocalyptic moods, while the Raster Noton artist closes the vinyl
with a powerful broken-beat reinterpretation that will capture the
attention of the more demanding clubbers.

Medium” arrives as the first non-studio based production by emptyset, recorded on location in the remote Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire UK. The collection of tracks explores the duo’s preoccupations with the elemental properties of sound and bare rhythmic structures and overlays it onto the textural possibilities
of space and material. The project marks their first act of adapting their analogue
based studio system into an architectural intervention, pushing extreme bass and
feedback into the irregular spaces of the unfinished building. The rural mansion, which remains an incomplete remnant of the gothic revival and a place studied by
both architectural researchers and psychic investigators, provides a rich source of
texture as the sparse palette of sine waves and noise is adorned with the intricate details of the space. Medium emerges as an act of translation remodeling the
house through sonic impulses into a state of audio, a fluid transformative gesture
and a process mirroring the sonar impulses of the bats residing within
Woodchester’s rooftop sanctuary.
￼￼The project, supported by the Woodchester Mansion Trust, was provided technical support by the renowned Bristol based sound engineer Mat Sampson who managed the array of vintage microphones and preamps distributed within the building along with the central monophonic sound system.
“Medium” will be released March 19th, 2012 on Subtext Recordings based at Multiverse in Bristol. It follows on from emptyset’s second LP Demiurge, Roly Porter’s landmark Aftertime album and a live recording by Paul Jebanasam.
