Terre Thaemlitz: Nuisance: Writings on Identity Jamming & Digital Audio Production
This book compiles articles, essays, lecture transcripts, album annotations and other texts written by queer audio producer and writer Terre Thaemlitz between 1996 and 2015.
The overall theme uniting the texts is a defense of pessimism and a critical rejection of the incessant optimism lurking at the core of virtually all media - even in the 'critical fields' themselves, where it reflects our conformity to those First World humanist and capitalist practices we wish to critique.
Additional new commentary notes by Terre Thaemlitz explain why the texts sometimes still fraudulently use positive terminology, and break up the linearity of the reading process - thus incorporating the theme of 'nuisance' throughout the book.
For the past year or so, DJ Sprinkles' sets have been featuring a private edit of Simon Fisher Turner's "Shishapangma," reworked from the soundtrack to The Epic of Everest. With encouragement from friends - including dear SFT, of course - we are thrilled to come out with this release featuring Simon's original version on the A-side, and Sprinkles' Deeperama mix on the B-side. Available here at comatonse.com, and Boomkat. Listen to audio excerpts online at Boomkat. Vinyl only!

NOW SHIPPING: DJ Sprinkles is please to announce the re-issue of Midtown 120 Blues, self-released on Comatonse Recordings with custom packaging hand assembled by Terre herself.
The audio on the 2014 CD is identical to the 2008 first edition and subsequent represses on Mule Musiq. There are no plans for a vinyl edition because the bass spatialization effects that give many of these recordings their sonic character are incompatible with vinyl mastering techniques.
Available now at the Comatonse Shop.

NOW IN STOCK: A lost rarity uncovered while attempting to re-organize my book shelves: my anonymous contribution to the 1999 Alku microcassette series "AV/M." This microcassette contains a single, exclusive, untitled track made in an ambient/collage/plunderphonic style, with a duration of 4'14" (four minutes, fourteen seconds). I believe it was an edition of 20 - of which I have 10! In terms of quantity produced, this is beyond a doubt the rarest of all my releases - hence the stupid price. Limit one per customer. Available here & now at the Comatonse Shop.
NOW IN STOCK: Terre was digging in her closet and found 20 copies of this rare, cassette-only album by Chugga, released by The Tapeworm. These copies are part of a limited edition of 250 tapes that have long been sold out everywhere else! This is Chugga's full-length album produced in 1996, from which the two tracks featured on their sexily titled 7-inch vinyl, "A Big 7-Inch," released in 2003 by Klanggalerie (limited to 200 copies, of which we still have 10 or so copies available through our shop as well). For anyone who has that vinyl and wanted more, this is your (probably last ever) chance!

TALES OF THE BODILESS
…How can you get off your body?... you are not riding a body, isn't it? It might be possible to get off the body... but how or by what are you transported then?
Can you leave it for a while? Can you take a vacation from your body ? ...How long can you stay out of yourself ...without losing it all together...
A composition of voices, sounds, lights and space that evolves in four tales about bodilessness.
TALES OF THE BODILESS explore a condition that is hard to imagine before you experience it: a world without human bodies .Once humans are a past, and hence, no longer central, the world is made vacant for fantasies about nonhuman forms of existence. Four landscapes of sensations and cognitions, of sinking and dissolving, of neurosis and aggression, of joy and expansion, of explosion and dissipation. A bodiless world requires that theater send its proper body - the stage - on vacation.
This entails that the theatrical regime of senses and faculties in this performance is unsettled: listening battles vision and sight. The spectators' bodies remain a rare live presence that gives duration to the fictions they inhabit.
After 12 years of the old interface, comatonse.com has been completely redesigned. Over the years the site has grown to over 1000 pages, all of which had to be reorganize and manually recoded, so you'll pardon Terre for procrastinating.
Some of the new site's features include:
There are also several new articles, interviews and album reviews in the press section (formerly "articles & reviews"), as well as a revamped and expanded collection of Terre's writings.
P.S. For those of you who enjoyed the chaos of the old site, don't worry... there are plenty of easter eggs hidden throughout the site. (Did you catch the easter egg in that last sentence? No, not the link to Wikipedia, you dolt... that's just a normal link! try harder!) In fact, the old site is still hidden in here somewhere!
