Jan Jelinek’s Tierbeobachtungen gets first vinyl release





Noise and instrumental samples waft through layered loops.

Jan Jelinek’s 2006 album Tierbeobachtungen is being released on vinyl for the first time, via Faitiche this May.

Taking its name – Tierbeobachtungen – from the German word for ‘animal observations,’ the album’s 6-tracks see Jelinek fortifying his layered, modulated loops with guitar and vibraphonette snippets.

It follows Jelinek’s collaborative 2019 Signals Bulletin album with Japanese sound artist ASUNA, also released on Faitiche.
