Description

MINOY 

RARE 10 CASSETTE LOT 1986-1988  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US

 

 

 

Exquisitely rare 10 cassette set with "non"music by Minoy. Text is hand written on tape by Minoy. Some tapes still have penciled words preceding the pen. 

 

Minóy produced some of the most remarkably engrossing, beautiful and imaginative work-of-art albums released on cassette in the 1980s. Minóy was an agoraphobic but prolific noise artist intensely active in the music underground between the years 1986 and 1992. 

 

Such a prolific artist, one might imagine that a vast supply of original material is available. It is said that minoy released over a hundred titles, but the individual cassettes from Minoy are intensely limited! A collector of 80's-90's noise of this category will know that the item being offered might be the only one of its kind…..?  

 

Yes…… it is as wild as you have been told….

 

The highly expressive sonics on these tapes are best- late at night, lights out, horizontal, and loaded with your favorite substance. You won't soon forget about the experiences. 

 

C-60 chrome. Dolby B

 

( I just noticed that a couple of photos show a brighter white j-card than the rest. They are all this bright white….)

 

Provenance-

 

These 10 cassettes were compiled by Minoy himself. They were a gift from Minoy to a friend of mine. I bought his whole collection. 

 

This might be the only set like this in the world. 

 

 

The mighty Minoy out of Torrence, California made quite a stir in the mail art and mail music networks. He gave it all up in 1992.

 

Stanley Bowsza (aka “Minóy” ) was not only one of the acknowledged “creators” of the 1980s “homemade” independent music scene, he was also one of its most-acclaimed and well-known through his extensive collaborations with literally dozens of other luminaries in the burgeoning scene. 

 

Minóy is best known for his solo compositions, which number well over 100. He is recognized as a master of controlled noise, who used every sound imaginable in the world around him as his audio palette. 

 

Many releases had only one or two compositions, and these gave him the time to develop his themes and hypnotically enshroud the listener in what were usually very powerful works – which made for a very memorable and powerful “trip.” This was the secret to his magic and magnetism – calling his music “noise” properly identifies it in the respectful lexicon of the time, but doesn't’t do it justice. 

 

RIP Minoy …2010

 

 

TAPE ONE

MINOY 

BREAKING THE SAME BOTTLE TWICE

TO JOHAN: WORDS IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

RARE 1988 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US

 

 

 

On Breaking The Same Bottle Twice….wind chimes gone mad, wind gone mad, Minoy gone mad……your next….

 

On Words In A Foreign Language…A composition that was inspired by Ingmar Bergmans film " The Silence" Minoy offers quiet minimalism for a change, movie snipets are vaguely played, as if we are watching a movie…that is too far away….brilliant….must hear.

 

 

A- BREAKING THE SAME BOTTLE TWICE -31:24

 

B- MINOY TO JOHAN: WORDS IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE 30:27

David Lynch would kill for this as a soundtrack…….

TAPE FOUR

MINOY   

LANDSCAPE WITH SERPENT

RARE 1988 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US

More great sonic mayhem from the master of the musically macabre. On side 1, the 'Stalker' is that presence following you down that circuitously tunnel to hell. 'Programmatic' isn't a dirty word, but for the most part, this surpasses that and is just plain eerie. 

 

The title side evokes visions of a primordial wasteland with a menagerie of strange, lumbering life-forms cavorting way off in the (safe) distance. In the closing section, the serpent's lonely wails penetrate the heavy mist and fog. 

 

Side 2 Landscape With Serpent -These compositions were inspired by the films of the Great late Andrei Tarkovsky

MINOY 

NIGHTSLAVES  

INSECT TRUST/GIBBERING GHOSTS BURNING IN JELLY

RARE 1986 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US/  

 

Nightslaves is one of Minoys better known works. Subtle changes drive a crystalline drone throughout Nightslaves. From a screeching cathedral organ to distorted Tibetan horns.

Insect trust- Extraterrestrial communications surrounded by a myriad of insect sounds…calming in a ufo-ee kind of way. Really nice.

Gibbering Ghosts Burning In Jelly…..kind of self explanatory …voices ….tv's… washing machines…all behaving badly, burning in jelly…

PASSAGE OF THE MIGRATORY BIRD

RARE 1986 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US


Swimming in an ocean of his signature cheap Radio Shack reverb and queasily modulating ham radio emissions, this is another lost monument of subterranean 80's tape culture electronic investigations from one of its most reliably excellent and significantly overlooked practitioners. 

Durring "Passage Of The Migratory Bird" Minoy drops you in a cold dark alley. Thunderous and squelching drones keep you in constant state of alarm. Sounds from half alive creatures outside of your vision are determined to make you suffer your journey to the end of the tape….Glorious, but not for those with weak insides.

MINOY   

SUNSPOTS/MAGNETIC STORM

RARE 1988 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US

 

C-60 chrome. Dolby B

 

"SUNSPOTS" and "MAGNETIC STORM" are so aptly titled on this sonic treat. These are sounds, that the Sun or a Magnetic storm would use to announce itself. 

 

Continuous and harsh drones will fill your space with delight………This is raw noise directly from the late 80's,……. that will ruin your speakers, dissolve your identity, destroy your health and turn you into a jabbering idiot…..

 

 

…..so the scientist say about sunspots and magnetic storms…..I think you are safe as long as you own this cassette, and don't play it…..It's too late for me…….heh.

 

1 -SUNSPOTS

2 -MAGNETIC STORM

 

 

TAPE NINE 

MINOY   

THE ART OF EGYPTIAN BATHING

SECRET CEREMONY/TIMESTEP

RARE 1986 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US

 

C-60 chrome. Dolby B

 

On The Art Of Egyptian Bathing, you are dropped in the middle of a macabre, carnival circus, a hundred sounds rush past your ears, everything is speeded up by three, and does not let up for 29 minutes. Concepts get ruined or salvaged with this sound. Half way into to this sonic journey, dizziness sets in, stamina is your friend here…….

 

On Secret Ceremony…. Many glasses were broken,.. and bells struck for your ears. All this noise to create an unfriendly, but powerful drone……… 

 

"Timestep"…. Minoy doing chillout…Marconi Union style….This track closes this tape with comfort, Im not sure what comfort is good for, but none the less….this tape is brilliant.

MINOY   

ZAMINDAR

RARE 1988 CASSETTE  MINOY CASSETTEWORKS / US 

 

Dave Prescott, Minóy, and Zan Hoffman! Sonic Brilliance this one…..

 

Dave, Minoy and Zan might be thinking here……. that,….. they can serve you up to you what ever sonic soup they want, and you will lap it up, like fish feeding on a long dead carcass. 

 

The answer is yes……, we will, as long as it as it is as f*cked as this noise is. This is the last tape on this list, and is the cream of the crop…..

 

Definition for cream of the crop  —-The best of the best. Being the cream of the crop is being the best of something, it ranges from sports to school, to just being awesome….

 

ZAMINDAR… the title, maybe taken from bits of their names…….is a tour de force….

 

Be prepared for this one….I kid you not…. you just may end up on the floor wondering who you are. 

 

This just may be the most alarming bit of sonic's you or your speakers, and your ears, have heard in a long while. 

 

This collaboration, at this time, might have sparked some sonic angel to bless this…

 

"You are nothing" the tape proclaims…"this is just a dream"…a further proclamation….all true….. but an agreement is nothing compared to this sonic assault. 

 

This just might be the highest marker of sound creation that you might have. You just might judge everything that you hear to this….OMG……"the presure"….  "the horror."….. own this and you just might be…… done…..musically….

 

Maybe over dramatic,….. my description….but this tape is sonic noise perfection…..
