Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Jan Jelinek is a Berlin-based electronic musician who has become one of the leading lights of post-digital experimentation in the 2000s. Taking a structuralist approach to sample-based composition, Jelinek dissects loops down to their component digital ones-and-zeros, uncovering the latent musical possibilities within the discarded sonic detritus. LOOP FINDING JAZZ RECORDS, released in 2001 at the height of electronica's commercial boom, takes a relatively austere approach in its use of jazz and soul recordings of the `60s and `70s. Using a technique that he likens to the visual moir effect created by overlapping patterns, Jelinek applies short, one-second instrumental snippets of organs, pianos, and strings to the "loop-finding" function of his sampler, teasing out hypnotic, gently modulating pulses nestled by the randomly firing fissures of clicking micro-rhythms.
Professional Reviews
Q (5/01, p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A fizzing mosaic of delicate timbres....jazz purists will be appalled. Good."

Alternative Press (4/01, pp.76-7) - 4 out of 5 - "...Explores the visual effect moire in the audio realm, which closely resembles Steve Reich's phase-music compositions..."

Mojo (Publisher) (3/01, p.90) - "...Deeply pleasant listening, with rhythmic glitches and filtered sounds aplenty..."

NME (Magazine) (2/17/01, p.46) - 8 out of 10 - "...Unusually sweet. Pole is the most obvious reference point....these onomatopoeic non-specific songs are warm, paradisical creations..."
