Release Notes

A live performance based on The Grand Erector project, at Jean-Hervé Peron's annual Schiphorst Avant Garde festival. Rachael Tyrell joined The Grand Erector on stage for the performance. Parts of the concert were filmed and included on the DVD compilation Christian's Edition. Cover photos by Ian Land.

Concert Notes

Lurid and grandiose, The Grand Erector presents 'The Faust Types', in which the idle thoughts, unfocussed sonic snapshots, poesy, strummings and pickings, and the clattering percussive dandruff of willing Faust mailing list subscribers is transformed into electroacoustic gold via digital logic - or so The Grand Erector says. In another world, the pristine recordings of Faust mailing list giants Permanent Fatal Error, Band of Pain, S/T, Traummaschine and a host of other friends are wrestled to the ground then shoehorned into forms with no logic whatsoever other than the need to make them resonate precisely with mind of the producer. No one else could possibly be happy with the outcome.
