  • Catalog FAIT09
Faitiche is delighted to present Jan Jelinek's PrimeTime (faitiche09). This Mini-LP is the second of four vinyl compilations that bring together a highly diverse range of Jelinek's works - including commissioned pieces, live recordings, collaborations with other musicians, as well as unreleased material from the past five years.
Side A: PrimeTime is a commissioned work for Cinesonic -- a series of concerts presented by the Stichting Film en Media Festival Amsterdam in which video art, silent and experimental films are shown together with newly-conceived live soundtracks by contemporary musicians. PrimeTime is a collage of news broadcasts (from August 15th, 2012) and various film music. The piece emerged from the preparations for a performance of Prime Time Paradise by video artists Broersen & Lukacs.
Side B: HipBird, SynthSil and LoneStar are new edits/alternate versions of previously released tracks.
HipBird: an alternate version was released in 2009 as a contribution to Moriyama Zoo (Powershovelbooks, Japan) -- a CD/LP and catalog of the works of Japanese photographer Moriyama Daido.
SynthSil (Unfallmusik): a short excerpt of this piece appeared in 2010 as a limited edition 7" flexi-disc on Hanno Leichtmann's Picture/Disc Edition.
LoneStar: originated from a collaboration with video artist Karl Kliem and was a contribution to the Japanese DVD-Magazine Sound X Vision 2004. An extended and revised version is included here.

The series of compilations will culminate in the release of a vinyl collectors box and booklet. The digital release will be no less of a monumental gesture: a limited edition of USB concrete blocks will house the MP3 versions of Jelinek's work. It is planned to install the data storage devices -- each measuring approximately .125 cubic Meters -- to be freely accessible in music shops and other public spaces.
