Cassiber/Ground Zero - Live in Tokyo (1997)















"This recording documents Cassiber's first and only visit to Tokyo, where they gave concerts on two consecutive evenings in October 1992. There were to be only two more appearances - both at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon that December - before the band, after ten years of continuous work, quietly ceased to exist. Just before they left for Japan they invited Shinoda Masami to join them for the concerts, a collaboration that was both rewarding and pleasurable. A little over a month later he suddenly died at the age of 34, leaving the promise that he and Cassiber had exchanged for a second collaboration never to be fulfilled.
The second CD is a collection of pieces by Otomo Yoshihide and Ground Zero, which takes the live recordings of Cassiber's live performance in Tokyo as source material and reworks them by way of sampling, remixing, addition, and re-performance. It is an expression of Otomo's respect and homage to Cassiber and to Shinoda Masami and, as the last recording under the name Ground Zero, marks the end of the group which has been the main project for the past seven years". Noda Shigenori and Chris Cutler.

grazie mille juju! only know cassiber's early 80s stuff - this must be something very different, i suppose, especially with ground zero involved.

found this one @ sfrp - you saved the recrec-thread from getting deleted...

ciao, lucky (aka Nelly) ;)

Spring Day said...

Hm, I feel similar with Lucky. Only knew the early 80's stuff of Cassiber, and didn't even know that this recording here existed. Lucky says, it must be very different. But, well, at least the titles of pieces like "O Cure Me" and "Our Colourful Culture" (hahahahahaha!) sound familiar to us, right?
I just posted Sogenanntes Linksradikales Blasorchester, some early project Heiner Goebbels and Alfred Harth were involved in...

Lucky said...

juju, no problem with backlinking - i would prefer if you link back to the harth post, instead of just posting the dl-link. i made the same with yours and spring day's recent offer.

salute

bravojuju said...

done!

Delfisch said...

thx for sharing. I have all the Cassiber CDs in my collection, but not this on. I saw them in early 80ties and their last CD was produced in Berlin 1989 where I was around these days.
Check the solo works of Heiner Goebbels - i.e. Wolokolamsker Chaussee - after text by Heiner Mueller. Great work!

DarkJesus said...

Unfortunately, this is down. Could someone re-up it if it is possible?

bravo juju said...

Can anyone recommend the top performing IT automation tool for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: [url=http://www.n-able.com] N-able N-central remote pc software
[/url] ? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!

My friend and I were recently talking about the ubiquitousness of technology in our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets cheaper, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
