about

AD200.

Thirteen Exquisite Corpses is the 200th and final release on Arachnidiscs Recordings, coming 20 years after the label's first release. A collaborative work of 13 "improvised compositions" split into two suites. It was recorded under the ensemble name BABEL by bandleader and Arachnidiscs head, Jakob Rehlinger. Thirteen Exquisite Corpses was recorded using a modified version of the "exquisite corpse" collaborative technique usually employed in visual art or writing where each collaborator is only aware of the tail end of the previous collaborator's contribution. In this case each of the 8 collaborators improvised to a series of minimal synthesizer drones provided by Rehlinger, unaware of each others' addition, which Rehlinger then edited into cohesive works. The album is presented as a 2CD edition in a 24 page hardback book.

"Seriously spooky songs mark the 200th release from Arachnidiscs—all of them improvised, all of them unsettling."
~ Bandcamp New & Notable
