In 1989 an ambitious young woman gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career may come at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a mind of its own.
Beyond the Door (1974)
Pregnant with her third child, the young English mother of two, Jessica Barrett, is living a happy life in San Francisco with her respectable record producer husband, Robert. Puzzled with her strange pregnancy, more and more, Jessica finds herself affected by this unnatural situation, exhibiting erratic and violent behaviour, while talking with a deep, almost demonic voice. Could she be possessed? As blood-curdling incidents threaten the family’s peace, an old friend from the past arrives, claiming that he has all the answers. But, who is this new and appalling Jessica?
Der siebente Kontinent
The Seventh Continent (German: Der siebente Kontinent) is a 1989 Austrian drama film directed by Michael Haneke.
The film chronicles the last years of an Austrian family, which consists of Georg, an engineer; his wife Anna, an optician; and their young daughter, Eva. They lead routine urban middle-class lives, with hopes of escaping to Australia to start a new life, but suddenly decide to destroy themselves without any apparent reason.
Museum Of No Art
With or without a drink in hand, moderate temperature, no need to jump into the wet. One night AT the pool, not inside. Palm trees or succulents – not far from here, the vegetation has adapted to the situation. A soft rustling: Possibly crickets, probably also the wind. No traffic and certainly no civilization, which right now would probably only disturb with its long agenda of responsibilities. HYPNOSIS AND MUD – Healing hypnosis, healing mud. The half-frustrating, half-liberating feeling of saturated soil between the toes. A state of inner peace. Instead of a voice, you hear primitivist percussive explorations. A groping and grasping of the bare feet, with delicate toes. Abstraction is followed by the concrete: a walk through the ORCHIDEENGARTEN RUSE, an orchid garden close to the Bulgarian town and not far from the Romanian border. Digitally, but not unreal. Perhaps even better than reality – anyone can do that. The (unofficial) soundtrack to this would not only make the Canadian composer Mort Garson happy. A lady‘s shoe kindly looks at us. If you turn around, you arrive on the other side: A LINE HAS TWO SIDES. Conundrum-like images, dissolved one-dimensionality. Candid narrative ambiance. A clarinet calls to duty. Civilization and traffic after all? SUNBEAMS ON YOUR CAR. Urgency, a clamor of voices – both in their best form. Yet again – the clarinet, the blunt reality: ONE NIGHT AT THE POOL. We are still standing here, we probably never left. A three-part journey – with delicate transitions. Three destinations: Now forever united. Dissonant and yet pensive. In the far distance the advertisement for the collected works of Meredith Monk. Hair erect, the little skin nerves contract, goosebumps – at last!

I cut a vinyl with Liszt music into eight slices, and then reassemble everything in a different way. Unfortunately, the experiment was partially successful, because too many junctions made the needle jump continuously. I will try to repeat by dividing the vinyl into two parts, perhaps assembling with the matrial of a second vinyl, or into four portions. The first attempt at an analog editing can be said to be unsuccessful,
This is the sound result.

ROMsets is the latest musical “outsider” to join Machine Woman’s label, Take Away Jazz Records, making it his debut signing following a string of self-releases. Following on from Sid Quirk, he is the second external artist welcomed to the imprint, as owner Anastasia Vtorova uses her homegrown platform to bring underground talent to the surface – but never too far above.
Oz Echoes peels away another layer of Australia’s ‘80s DIY hive mind. The Oz Waves successor exposes a deeper circuit of micro-run cassettes, community radio archives and irrationally abandoned studio sessions, as Steele Bonus sequences a 10-track compendium of drone pop, psyche-electronics and agitated tape cut-ups.
