Emotional Rescue is proud to reissue a collection of global music band, International Noise Orchestra, presented across 4 special EPs.
Founded when Berlin based musician Ulrich Hornberg mixed a newly acquired Commodore 64 with visiting Algerian drummer Jol Allouche’s tablas – “old culture meets new technology” – the fundamentals were laid. Simple, maybe naïve, with a curiosity to combine and inspire.
“The means of production must belong to the workers”, investing in a studio, label and publishing house allowed INO the adventure to record what they wanted, a project via “gästes“, taking their influences and culture, in a melting pot of eastern melodies, african percussion, jazz, soul, dub, and pop – an “orchestra“ not of size, but of different playing styles and idiosyncratic interpretations.
Old meets new starts with their cover of Gimme Your Lovin, taking Winwood’s classic and molding a white funk, pop, rock, dance hybrid, with enigmatic actor / singer Richard Strange’s distinctive poetic delivery. Following Dr. Sarmaz, released under INO’s alias – Internationales Geräuschorchester – the global dance vibrations begin.
Feel It Flow is pure 80’s dance pop, with Glynnis Thomas (Savage Progress) distinctive tones leading to the jazz fusion of Ataï, before closing with the guitar / synth / tabla rhythms of Culture Rescue Service.
