Yokomono 03 12″ lock groove record
This record was compiled on the ocassion of the Avanto Festival 2005 in Helsinki. Mika Vainio, was commissioned to produce a seven-minute composition. Petri Kuljuntausta from Helsinki was, in turn, asked to provide a composition of an equal length responding to Vainio’s piece. The sound material to be used for the compositions, field recordings from the turn of the 1960s and 1970s made at the Hietalahti shipyard in Helsinki, was discovered in the special effects archive of YLE Finnish Broadcasting Company. Side two of the record presents Alexei Borisov, Andrey Kiritchenko, Blixa Bargeld, Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg, G.X. Jupitter-Larsen, Jason Forrest, Main, Merzbow, Staalplaat Soundsystem, Un Caddie Renversé Dans l’Herbe and Zbigniew Karkowski with five loops from each featured artist and their own sound environment.
Avanto was the co-producer of this unique release.

Yokomono 03.5 12″ record
This record has three parallel soundtracks where the cutting needle was lifted twice with short intervals, in order to make the needle used during “wiedergabe” to jump tracks randomly. To play this record you must not see your turntable as a reproduction machine that reproduces
the music on the record. You can not put it on and sit down to listen.
See the record and turntable much more as a music instrument that with each turntable model and with each setting if your machine you will create a different sound and mix of this record. As with any instrument you have to learn how to play your turntable and find
what setting you like best. Of vital influence are the skate settings en the wait on the tone arm, these and others you must very to experience the options of the record. we cut on each side of the record 3 tracks of 7-5 min each.
side A
– pure brown noise – Untuned7min by Cynthia Zaven – Lostbariken by Merzbow
side B
– pure white noise – Mika Vainio -Telakka – Gramm by Jaap Blonk

Now this is certainly a most strange record. I stood by my turntable, changing the weight of the tone arm hearing say Blonk, but then moving into Vainio and back, or the piano tones which I assume are Zaven’s going into Merzbowian noise, sometimes with white/brown noise blocks coming in, quickly and disappearing equally fast. Stuff you can do on vinyl only and which have a highly added value to what you get. Hardly plain music, but also not just a DJ tool. Very nice, even without the art installation itself.

YOKOMONO-PRO/COMPOSED NATURE (12″ record by Alga Marghen)
*staalplaat soundsystem Installation pieces composed by Pan Sonic member Ilpo Väisänen and sound artist Radboud Mens* Composed Nature: “The installation Composed Nature, developed for the Centrum voor Beeldende Kunst Dordrecht, consists of a matrix of 64 trees. Controllable, mechanical vibrators are mounted on each individual tree and are operated by custom made software. The sound of each tree can vary from a barely audible noise to a heavy “Green noise”, thereby offering different sound textures to be played. To play the trees, many spatial sonic patterns have been programmed, and a musical composition called “Shiver Me Timbers” has been written. The piece is shown as an installation, and enables visitors to activate patterns via their mobile phones interactively. What is left unspoken is who is in control: nature, mankind or technology.” Yokomono Pro by Staalplaat Soundsystem, composed by Ilpo Väisänen “Yokomono-Pro, originally developed for the Indian Khoj – International Artists Association in New Dehli, questions horn noise as a social sound and communication. The incredible volume and size of Indian traffic and the sound it produces, is our inspiration for this project. Their communication language seems to be spoken with the horn; signalling with it everything needed – much the way we use indicator lights in Europe. We seek to intercept this phenomenon of car signalling and overlay it within a so-called meaningful structure. We hired 30 auto rickshaws, called tuck-tucks. Then prepared them technically in order to remotely take over control of their horns. This enables us to synchronously play rhythmic patterns as they drive along a pre-determined route. Using the taxis with their horns as a choir, it forms a combination of voice patterns and dynamic spatial movements which in turn create an undetermined sound choreography. This car horn experiment hope to engage on a large scale with the relationship between discrete signals among generalised noise in public space. The piece premiered at the India Art summit in New Delhi, India, in August 2008.”
