Boomkat Product Review:
'Temple' is the final installment in Jan Jelinek's series of four vinyl compilations that bring together the wide variety of his music: commissioned works, live recordings, collaborations with other musicians as well as unreleased material from the last five years. Temple stems from a collaboration with French-Canadian choreographer Sylvain Émard. Temple is a re-worked excerpt of the music for the dance piece Fragments – Volume I and is a 10 minute drone work that builds from nothing more than an electronic buzz into a noisy analog piece along similar lines to Miles Whittaker's Suum Cuique project . Over on the flip, Jelinek's Gesellschaft zur Emanzipation des Samples (G.E.S.) welcomes a new member. Helmut Schmidt assembles collages of Messian and Debussy (or is that Bach and Milhaud?), which are once again played back in public spaces and recorded anew. A backdrop of gambling unites the recordings: the playback locations chosen by Helmut Schmidt are Geneva, Baden-Baden and Bad Homburg. A triumvirate of bourgeois casino tradition.
