Interpretations On F.C. Judd
Release Date: 20th May 2013
12 track 2 x LP (Edition of 500 pressed on white vinyl) / Download
PRE ORDER :
In January 2012 we released a 35-track compendium of F.C. Judd’s music and sound, it was called Electronics Without Tears. Fast forward to Spring 2013 and we are back with Fred for a very special LP to reignite his legacy.
For our tenth release we asked some of our favourite artists working today to submit a reinterpretation of the greatly undervalued early electronics pioneer, Frederick Charles Judd. We gave them Fred’s entire archive of sounds, tone experiments, field recordings and lectures and left it up them to produce an audio artefact befitting of Judd himself.
The players invited: Chris Carter, Perc, Pye Corner Audio, Holly Herndon, Mordant Music, Peter Rehberg, Bandshell, Ekoplekz, The Boats, Leyland Kirby, Karen Gwyer and Ian Helliwell.
Interpretations On F.C. Judd opens with Fred himself, welcoming us into his world before Ian Helliwell takes us into a fractured loop of radio static and gargled musique concrete.
From here we lurch through pure tape trips (Leyland Kirby, Chris Carter) dubwise refractions (Karen Gwyer, The Boats, PCA), haunted never-zones (Ekoplekz, Mordant Music, Perc), sublime vocal deconstructions (Holly Herndon) and frightening slashes of electronic deviance (Peter Rehberg, Bandshell).
Throughout Inspirations, Fred is never far away, reminding us how important visionaries like him stalk even the most future-bound of electronic music.

my live band got together and recorded a version of “trust me” that we’ve been playing on tour together for the past year. it ended up being a favorite in the set, and i find it to be a great representation of the amazing musicians i’ve been touring with. thank you three for sharing your incredible gifts on stage every night. thank you especially to alex degroot for spearheading the immortalization of this version by mixing and engineering this track.
kim free — violin
nick turco — rhodes, organ

Whatever your favorite Rock Genre, Elusive Parallelograms play that, awesomely. And your second favorite genre. And a couple they just made up that you’ll love.
Elusive Parallelograms called their 2008 debut, “And Everything Changes,” and they weren’t kidding.. Their 2 LPs and 3 EPs are where power pop meets shoegaze meets brainy prog meets acoustic instrumentals meets psychedelic meets metal pounding on metal, sometimes all on the same track. Whatever this song’s experiment may be, you’ll hear guitars bent at sharp angles, beauteous sounds bursting at unexpected moments, cryptic lyrics whose slick hooks dig in deep but whose puzzles won’t crack on one listen.
Elusive Parallelograms are DIY from the first scratch of pencil on paper to the last careful tick of the dials at their self- built studio in Milwaukee’s Bayview neighborhood.
Whoever your favorite Elusive Parallelogram is… Look, they’re ALL dreamy, but don’t get attached. In this ever-evolving collective, the music, and where it’s going next, calls all the shots.
Whatever’s new and trendy, Elusive Parallelograms did it two records ago.
Whatever’s old and Passe’ They’ll make new.
And Everything Changes
