Welcome to Fabrication de Bruit – Ephemera of the Modern

fabrication de bruit explores the boundaries between tastes. fabrication de bruit finds strange, personal, lost, burnt, fresh and uncomfortable sounds and combines them into pieces different from the whole. look for the key words—found sound, outsider, new composts, forgotten old, strange exotica, confronting and extant, warm and thick, broken and rusty. fabrication de bruit reinterprets and curates the ephemera of the modern: tapes, VHS, label-less singles, the loud and quiet of the post-digital world, discarded objects and forgotten voices.   fabrication de bruit started over 18 years ago on a community radio station in Sydney as ‘Soundtracks and other expletives’, a[…]

8 – The evil that men do

  This is show 8 of the series.  It is entitled ‘the evil that men do’.  At the heart of this show is all manner of evil, cloaked and uncloaked, bound and well, not bound.  We could list all the tracks but that would seem kind of pointless.  Have a listen through and come to find meaning in the evil that men do.  Featuring over 35 minutes of new DJ Ringfinger madness, including their first real attempt at sampling concrete. Featuring a variety of found sounds from Australian preachers, an ABC radio interview from 1974, spoken word by DJ Ringfinger[…]

7 – la verge de satan

  Some have said that this ‘podcast’ is obsessed with three things. 1. cocks, dicks and other flaccid bits of skin purporting to be penis like. 2. anything french and 3. ribbons and scars. Well, in the truest sense of the word ‘obsessed’, we present to vous with show 7, la verge de Satan, which roughly translates as the ‘the penis of Satan’. Actually, we kid you not. There is actually a song called that in the show. Satan’s dick. And we didn’t write it ourselves. And yes, it is probably not safe for work, or miners. It gets dangerous[…]

6 – Critical Reflection

OK, this show may have taken some time to come together, around a year perhaps. It was originally recorded in 2011.   I could talk about the two lost hard drives, the insurmountable battles with plugs and an innate fear of the colours red and black.  That however would be excuse making at its worst.  Just enjoy the show, this time entitled  ‘critical reflection’ which features some fresh tape findings from preachers in Australia, a plea to make yourself rich from some  ‘sexy’ Americans with rhyming names and some just plain creepy country music.  There is also the first new music for 2011 from[…]

Wayback Machine vol 1 – madonna megamix woohoo funtime

So, in lieu of DJ Ringfinger getting of her/his lazy arsehole and providing us with some more of their fractured, broken beats (phat or thfin, either way), the boffins here at fabrication de bruit headquarters have found a way to podcast old shows that were first broadcast on some community radio station in Sydney, back in the dark ages. These podcasts, which quite rightly should have been forgotten, destroyed, irradiated, or otherwise deleted, represent the formative stages of our development, when we could scratch and mix, but still not walk or removes faeces from our own bot-bot. So, enjoy this[…]

4- dank u well

Episode 4, entitled ‘Dank u wel’ was recorded using records I bought in the Nederland. no real theme, just lots of dutch. And yes, there is some dutch comedy in here as well. Dutch. Comedy. I have no idea what they are laughing at, but apparently in Dutch, it is fucking hilarious. There is some strange stuff in here, plus the usual array of original beats, loops and improvised underscore all by DJ Ringfinger and his ingresso libero quintet. And for the trainspotters amongst you, the translation of the picture above is Tintin no sex? Come on!
