The first release on the re-launched dadastic! sounds is
FROM FRAGMENTS OF ENDEAVOR
by Romanian artist
DOLORES MONDO STASH
Our first release is the project of Dan Tecucianu who lives in Bucharest, Romania. Dan is also a visual artist who creates intricate collages that are much in the manner of his music. Out of what the casual viewer or listener may first perceive as chaos, a story emerges. The stories contained on FROM FRAGMENTS OF ENDEAVOUR are told through low-tech and old-school re-assemblage of everything from classical to jazz to sacred clips of ancient cassettes, and Dan's own instrumentation.
The songs may be based on random sounds, but those sounds are cut-up, recycled, looped, and deliberately re-assembled to create music, not just soundscapes. This is fantastic stuff for fans of The Residents, Captain Beefheart, Throbbing Gristle, and Psychic TV...or even John Cage.
FROM FRAGMENTS OF ENDEAVOUR comes highly recommended. We don't release anything we don't love and there's a lot to love here. Part pathos, and part humor and Dan's own natural musical talents set Dolores Mondo Stash apart from other aural experiments.
Dolores Mondo Stash may at first sound like "ambient" music, or even found sounds, but a closer listen reveals itself to be deliberately composed songs.
It's an all-new approach. Have a listen. It will grow on you-perhaps even grow on you like mold.
