Description

Swissair - 15. joulukuuta 1981

'15. joulukuuta 1981' ('December 15th, 1981') was originally released as a cassette album in early 1982. The six 16-year-old members of Swissair, whose earlier music had been inspired by punk and new wave, were becoming acquainted with the history of avant-garde music and immediately started experimenting with its ideas while having practically no traditional playing skills at all. A possible influence on this album was the idea of Portsmouth Sinfonia that had been produced by Brian Eno in the 1970’s, as well as some types of free jazz, for example Paul Bley’s minimal style. At least Anton Webern’s music in which 'silences matter as much as sounds was actually discussed before pressing the rec button and starting to improvise. Oddly enough, the recording technique chosen for this kind of music was a portable mono cassette recorder with a lousy built-in microphone, low batteries and a cheapest available cassette. This resulted in possibly record-breaking levels of tape noise: during many silent passages the hiss drowns out the music completely.
