about

RM010

1994, Williamsburg, New York City. An artist known as The Audio Janitor begins putting on ambient events around Brooklyn and Manhattan, simultaneously coining the term "Illbient" to identify a very specific and significant time and place. Lalalandia Entertainment Research Corporation produced some of the most memorable after-hours events in NYC during the 90s, a spirit that still lingers today for those who are willing to seek it.

2004-2008 saw the release of DJ Olive's 'Sleeping Pills' series on Room40. A total immersion in textural ambient-via-turntable. Collaborations over the years with Kim Gordon, Lawrence English and Christian Marclay have established Olive as a true "experimental" musician, a label that has become both clouded and confused in 2018. Gregor Asch simply works with his hands; a rare type of artist who possesses a deep understanding of electronics, natural materials, and recording production, yet remains creatively grounded on free improvisation and dub music.

Now quietly residing with his family in Canada, the Audio Janitor opens the 'Listening to Fir' art installation tomorrow in British Columbia at Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art & History. Described as a "combination of natural elements and electronic technology: water – wood – movement and sound – both audible and ambient.", the installation will essentially present the same material that is found here on this release, of which we are honored to present in cassette and digital formats.
