1000SCHOEN / AB INTRA Untitled do-CD "Zoharum proudly presents the split release of drone stalwart 1000SCHOEN (DE) and ambient soundscape sculptor AB INTRA (PL). Drone and ambient structures are places on the opposite poles, like fire and water, or air and earth. Acoustic music of 1000SCHOEN created with using only natural sound sources in mind and electronic compositions of AB INTRA complement each other on this release despite many differences. In the four parts of this split album various colours, shades, tones of such soundscapes are presented. The content of the following split release would make up separate albums of both artists, yet they gain another meaning in such a juxtaposition, in changeable atmospheres, building tension and reflections. It is a unique record, a rare one in the scene. This release is presented in a vinyl replica sleeve and is strictly limited to 400 copies." [label info] www.zoharum.com 2014 €15.50
3/4HADBEENELIMINATED Theology CD Die Band mit STEFANO PILIA & CLAUDIO ROCCHETTI, filed under: seltsame atmosphärisch-melancholische Improvisationen im (entfernten) Post-Rock-Gewand [mit späterer effektvoller Nachbearbeitung im Studio ohne das improvisatorische Feeling zu zerstören]; zwei lange Stücke füllen THEOLOGY, schwebend und unfokussiert aber stets im Wandel, unter Einsatz von vielen "echten" Instrumenten (Gesang, Drums, Gitarren, Piano), mitunter blitzen Ähnlichkeiten gar mit A SILVER MT. ZION auf... die ist der "Schwester-Release" zur LP "Religious Experience". "Soleilmoon Recordings is proud to announce the simultaneous release of 3/4HadBeenEliminated’s new CD and LP, titled “Theology” and “The Religious Experience”, respectively. 3/4HadBeenEliminated was founded in 2002 in Bologna, Italy as a trio, with Stefano Pilia, Claudio Rocchetti and Valerio Tricoli. An eponymous album was released in 2003 by Bowindo. In 2004 the group welcomed Tony Arrabito and became a quartet. The next year Hapna put out their second album “A Year of the Aural Gauge Operation”, and in 2006 the band self-released a 7 inch single “DimethylAtonalCalcine”. The group straddles the line between live improvisation and studio experimentation, blending and shaping raw sounds into living pieces, then gently dissecting the delicately structured songs into disruptive sonic excursions more evocative of moving shadows and swirling leaves than recognizable tunes. Stasis and stability are nowhere to be found here. Instead, an ever-changing dialogue between structure and chaos shifts from one performer to the next, never resting long before launching again into shuddering flight. Accoustic instruments and vocals form a familiar reference point, but studio treatments take the music into psychedelic and cinematic realms. In their words , “Improvisation is a way to experiment without thinking. When our improvisations ‘work’, the music just happens on its own. It reveals itself as if guided by its own logic, its own desire. In fact we don’t even feel like we are actually playing the music. It’s more like a stream that moves and changes autonomously. With composition (editing, overdubs, etc. etc.) we then remodel this stream, trying to make it more complex, ‘forever lasting, forever changing’, in the sense that every hearing will reveal a new perspective of the music. As a live band, we improvise 100%, and it's really risky, but when it ‘happens’, it’s the greatest satisfaction.” “Theology” is presented in a wooden box with a hinged cover decorated with layers of hand-painted tracing paper, and is limited to 450 copies on CD. The companion vinyl LP “The Religious Experience” is a reinterpretation of the recordings made for the CD. The LP is limited to 225 copies. The two albums – and their music – should be considered as mirror opposites. Where theology is a completely artificial system of belief, a religious experience is the immediate experience of the thing itself. Likewise, the music on “Theology” is complex and elaborate, while “The Religious Experience” is much simpler, going directly to the heart of the material comprising “Theology”. Thus, the two works are independent, yet relate to each other as mother and daughter." [press release] "....and with some imagination you could say that they are a rock band. Well, an expanded rock band that crosses many lines: post rock, singer songwriter, improvisation and above all musique concrete collage techniques. Maybe the stage isn't their place but they should be safely stuck in the studio, where they can freely experiment with sound. Each member plays a wide variety of instruments, except Arrabito, who is just credited for drums. Inside the studio they find a safe place to improvise their music, but not as an end, but as a start. Recordings are separated, deconstructed and rebuilt into something. These two new releases, both lavishly packed with all sorts of nice paper, are best heard together, as mirrors of each other. The CD (limited to 450 copies) and the LP (limited to 225 copies) have however their differences, but the provide a nice view in the kitchen of 3/4HadBeenEliminated. The CD is perhaps more complex in approach. We hear lots of processed guitars, percussive sounds, organ like drones but also contact microphones scratching the surface alongside humming vocals. Not really rock by any rock standard, even when things seems to hint that way. Seemingly things move from atmosphere to atmosphere, gradually, slow, but without doubt moving.." [FdW / Vital Weekly] "...you'll know to expect fractured and mysterious soundscapes, a densely textured drone-zone constructed from field recordings, record crackle, improvised acoustic instruments, radio static, fragments of piano melody, electronic treatments, whispered Italian voices, turntable scratchings, reel-to-reel tape manipulation, synthesizer sinewaves, scattered percussion, and more. That's a zone we LOVE to visit. There's two long tracks, lots to explore, all manner of curious creakings and cracklings, shifting rhythms and rumblings abounding within 3/4hadbeeneliminated's carefully crafted and/or improvised music. At times quiet and meditative, at others noisier and distorted, but always (to our ears) utterly gorgeous and compelling. Aligns quite nicely with the likes of the Jewelled Antler collective, the Finnish forest foraging of Kemialliset Ystavat, and of course others in the experimental underground Italian scene of which the members of 3/4hadbeeneliminated are a part."

  Speak to me LP "Black Truffle present Speak To Me, the sixth full-length release from 3/4HadBeenEliminated, the Italian trio of Stefano Pilia, Claudio Rocchetti and Valerio Tricoli. Based on source material recorded in Bologna and Berlin over the course of several years, the album is made up of two side-long pieces meticulously constructed in post-production by Tricoli in his singularly dense and unpredictable style. Although their live performances have always been entirely improvised, in their recorded work the group focuses on using improvised recordings as source material for compositions built up through layering, editing and analog manipulation, extending the practices of Teo Macero, Faust and This Heat. Melancholic instrumental ruminations sit alongside cracked electronics, concrete sounds and Tricoli's whispered vocals, drawn together into dense assemblages animated by gradual transformations and sudden jump cuts. Beginning from the abstractions of their self-titled debut release in 2004, the group embarked on a trajectory that saw them move toward near-song structures, Tricoli's voice becoming a dominant element amid an increasingly dense and layered production style. On Speak To Me, however, the listener feels confronted by the ghost of music, sonic memories echoing across a psychedelic expanse. Evacuated of any clear structure, the music becomes a reverb-saturated morass, from which crystalline details momentarily emerge: shimmering echoed guitar, bowed double bass, tactile hand percussion, skittering electronics. Suffused with a darkly pensive atmosphere, Speak To Me is an elegant summation of the distinctive blend of electroacoustic techniques, instrumental improvisation and contemporary psychedelia pioneered by 3/4HadBeenEliminated over the last decade. LP design by Stephen O'Malley with striking artwork by Stefano Pilia. Vinyl cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." www.blacktrufflerecords.com 2016 €17.50
300 BASSES Sei Ritornelli CD "Alfredo Costa Monteiro (accordion, objects), Jonas Kocher (accordion) and Luca Venitucci (accordion, objects). Recorded on november 23th-25th 2011 during a residency at l'Arc Romainmôtier, Switzerland. Mixed by Alfredo Costa Monteiro and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi. Consisting of Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Jonas Kocher and Luca Venitucci, the trio 300 Basses transforms the conventional accordion approach, and enhances new practices leading to creative and innovative musical paths. 300 Basses states that accordion is ' a box with bellows and buttons. The box was for the resonance, the bellows for vibration and the buttons for building a sonic identity that has remained virtually frozen for centuries. But what would happen if the buttons began to vibrate, the bellows would resonate and the box should start to deconstruct this identity? ' Focusing on a collective sound approach, the three accordionists have a strong fascination for noisy static sounds, complex textures, and their powerful physicality. The trio was formed in 2010 and has performed concerts in Rome, Lyon, Geneva, Biel/Bienne, Lausanne, Zürich, Milano. Alfredo Costa Monteiro. After having studied sculpture/installation with Christian Boltanski at Les Beaux-Arts in Paris, Alfredo Costa Monteiro moved to Barcelona in 1992 and became involved in improvised music, concentrating on electric guitar and accordion. His installations and sound pieces, all of a low-fi character, have in common an interest for unstable processes, raw materials and gestures, where the manipulation of objects as instruments or instruments as objects has a strong phenomenological aspect. Alfredo Costa Monteiro runs several ongoing projects: Cremaster (with Ferran Fages), i treni inerti (with Ruth Barberán), Atolón (with Ferran Fages and Ruth Barberán), and duos with Tim Olive or Pascal Battus. Jonas Kocher. Accordion player and composer born in 1977, Jonas Kocher collaborates regularly in improvised and conceptual contexts with musicians such as Michel Doneda, Christian Wolfarth, Olivier Toulemonde, Duo Diatribes, Jacques Demierre, Burkhard Beins, Bertrand Gauguet, Thomas Lehn, Urs Leimgruber, Lee Patterson... Jonas Kocher's work explores the relationships between tone, noise and silence and the processus of listening. As a composer, he realises projects which are situated between composed theater, installation and concert pieces. Jonas Kocher is also involved as an organizer of different events in Switzerland and runs the label Flexion Records. Luca Venitucci. Living in Rome, Luca Venitucci started from the end of the eighties to take part to the activities of the improvised music scene in Italy and Europe. During the next decade, he played with a large number of musicians, among which Mike Cooper, Peter Kowald, Otomo Yoshihide, Thomas Lehn, Axel Dorner, Tim Hodgkinson, John Butcher, Mario Schiano, Alessandro Bosetti, Michael Renkel... In 1995, with Fabrizio Spera, Elio Martusciello and Maurizio Martusciello, he co-founded Ossatura a major electroacoustical improvising group. From 1996 to 2002 he has been part of Zeitkratzer ensemble, with whom he did performed and recorded contemporary music partitures (Cage, Glass, Stockhausen, LaMonte Young, Tenney) and made original projects and collaborations with several experimental musicians and composer such as Butch Morris, Carsten Nicolai, Keith Rowe, Masami Akita, Mario Bertoncini, Phill Niblock, Radu Malfatti, Thierry Thaemelitz, Lee Ranaldo. In 2001 he realised together with Ulrich Krieger the transcription and arrangement of an ensemble version of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music." [label info] www.potlatch.fr "A trio of accordion players from the world of improvised music - that's perhaps something new. For me it is. The unknown player here is Luca Venitucci, who was from 1996 to 2002 a member of Zeitkratzer, and before that a founding member of Ossatura. The other two players I think should be known if you read these pages every now and then. Alfredo Costa Monteiro and Jonas Kocher have regularly new releases. Maybe you think its cheating, but both Venitucci and Monteiro are also playing objects on their accordion, which seems to expand the sound quite considerably. If you think that this trio will focus on playing sustaining, lengthy pieces of drone music, then you are wrong. In 'Abbandonato' and 'Mala Carne' for instance they sound like an all acoustic noise ensemble, with lots of scratching, scraping and bending of the bellows. Its followed by 'Maledetto', in which the accordion sing like sine waves, carefully but also piercingly loud as the piece progresses. In 'Gira Bile' and 'Fantasma' they reach for a beautiful piece of drone music. Six pieces and almost as many approaches to the world of the accordion. Six pieces of a wonderful great, improvised music on a single instruments, times three." [FdW/Vital Weekly] 2012 €15.00
87 CENTRAL Formation CD Sanft-dynamische ambient-tunes auf dieser neuen CD von Jeff Carey alias 87 CENTRAL, einigen vielleicht von der ERS LP bekannt. Er benutzt diverse, auch konkrete field-recording Soundquellen und bearbeitet sie digital, hat ganz eigene Atmosphäre und Charakter... “ Bridging the gap in time and sound between the debut self titled release on ERS Records (ERS003) and the recent release of Saxmower (JDK Productions), Formation (Staalplaat) builds on the tuned listening characteristic of 87 Central's no-input mixer work as its foundation while increasingly incorporating varied sound materials. Formation presents seven vector components coming from different origins and arriving into a singular sound space of evolving organic sonic life cycles. These systems exhibit growth and decomposition of layered feedback, computer processes and sample manipulations around concrete sound material. Fragments of tangible experience set the listener on a trajectory through a soundscape of impressionistic imagery punctuated by clearly indexed natural detail. Using environmental recordings and electronics, these tracks present more than the directness of documentary field recordings and recreate experiences of active listening: the warning beacon on a jetty in the North Sea during a winter night as container ships arrive in port; the intensity and activity of crackling rhythms and the continuous energy of fire; and the night life of an urban power plant in the heat of summer.” [press release] “ Bird calls and fire sounds in combination processed feedback and the washy sounds of Dan's guitar (only in one track though), make this into a kind of ambient record, in which happens more then the usual washes of digital synths and plundered sound effect CDs. 87 Central plays around with environmental, concrete and abstract sound, and does it with great care. The glitchy elements present on "Saxmower" are not apperent on this release, so I recommend this to all ambient hearts out there. Strong stuff.” [FdW, Vital Weekly] 2003 €8.00

A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN same CD "Debüt des gemeinsamen Projekts der Neoklassiker Adam Wiltzie und Dustin O’Halloran. A Winged Victory For The Sullen sind Adam Wiltzie (Stars Of The Lid) und der amerikanische Komponist Dustin O’Halloran. Mit verschiedenen Klavieren und Droneklängen experimentierten die beiden auf ihrem selbst betitelten Debüt in extrem tiefen Frequenzbereichen. Aber auch traditionelle Instrumente wie Waldhorn, Fagott und Streicher sind zu hören, immer durchdrungen allerdings von Gitarrenmelodien. Die Aufnahmen begannen mit einer nächtlichen Session auf einem alten Bösendorfer-Imperial-Klavier in der berühmten Grunewaldkirche in Berlin. Die Streicheraufnahmen stammen aus den Ostberliner Räumen des einstigen DDR-Radios. Eine letzte Session gab es auf einem handgemachten Fazioli-Flügel in einem Privatstudio in Italien. Das Ergebnis sind sieben Klanglandschaften harmonischer Wiederkehr, Late-Night-Music, von der man immer geträumt hat. Zu den Gastmusikern gehören die isländische Cellistin Hildur Gudnadottir sowie Erased-Tapes-Labelkamerad Peter Broderick an der Violine. Die Vinylversion erscheint mit einem Download-Code. // A Winged Victory for the Sullen is the first installment of the new collaboration between Stars of the Lid member Adam Wiltzie and composer Dustin O'Halloran. The duo agreed to leave their normal home studio comfort zone and develop the recordings with the help of large acoustic spaces, and to hunt down a selection of 9ft grand pianos that had the ability to deliver extreme sonic low end. Other traditional instrumentation was used including string quartet, French horn, and bassoon, but always juxtaposed is the sound of drifting guitar washed melodies. The recordings began in one late night session in the famed Grunewald Church in West Berlin on a 1950s imperial Boesendorfer piano and strings were added in the historic East Berlin DDR radio studios along the River Spree. One last final session in a private studio deep in the northern cusp of Italy on a handmade Fazioli piano, and the final mixes took place in a 17th century villa near Ferrara, Italy, with the assistance of Francesco Donadello. All songs were processed completely analogue straight to magnetic tape. Their secret to harvesting new melodic structures from the thin air of existence was for the duo to push themselves to live dangerously, realizing that clear thinking at the wrong moment could stifle the compositions. The final result is seven landscapes of harmonic replicating ingemination. In 'Requiem for the Static King Part 1' (created in memory of the untimely passing of Mark Linkous) they have taken the age old idea of a string quartet and then shot it out a cannon to reveal exquisite new levels of mellow bliss. Of the 13 minute track 'Symphony Pathetique,' Wiltzie says 'after almost 20 years of struggling to create interesting ambient drone music, I feel like I have finally figured out what I am doing.' Notable guest musicians include Icelandic cellist Hildur Gudnadottir, and violinist Peter Broderick. A Winged Victory for the Sullen is not a side project.

As Frans de Waard explains in a spoken introduction to this album, listeners were invited to remix the material, preferably with 4-track cassette recorder. The music on “Mutatis Mutandis” is Mirko Uhlig’s response to this invitation, so it is a fitting gesture that the album is also released as a cassette in tribute to the important role that 4-track machines and the tape distribution scene have played in the development of experimental musics. Thanks to Frans de Waard’s guest vocal intro, the cassette is a “tape with the sound of its own making” similar to Robert Morris’s seminal sound sculpture “Box with the Sound of its Own Making”, but the music also makes for very pleasant listening on the CD version."

There is an unreleased piece by Z'EV, but only Mirko Uhlig has spend a lot of time with it. He's back to using his old bandname, Aalfang Mit Pferdekopf, and there are three pieces here. One seems a straight remix of the original, followed by the title piece, which takes up thirty eight minutes. Here Uhlig takes the hiss of the original apart, adds sound effects, time stretches bits into long form drones, making an absolute great piece, ending a nice up in your face drone bit and even a short noise bit at the end - but hey of course I am not the right person to write such things. Close to the fire and such things. But to know such a short and hissy piece of loosely formed sounds can make such a great piece, I didn't know.

ABRAHAMS, CHRIS Play Scar CD " Chris Abrahams ‘Play Scar’ inhabits a sound world that’s entirely uncharted. It’s a zone of in-betweens – juxtapositions and parallel lines – a realm in which nothing is certain and at any moment dynamic shifts might occur. In this unusual electro-acoustic landscape, Abrahams has crafted by far his most complex and epically beautiful record to date. It’s a series of pieces that in many ways demonstrates the full scope of Abrahams’ work as a musician and composer. ‘Play Scar’, like Thrown before it is both exotic and unfamiliar. Pieces like ’Twig Blown’ hint at Abrahams’ interest in musique concréte, ‘Lieiden’ pulses with a distinctly electronic flare, whilst ‘There He Reclined’ shimmers in a hazy procession of organ, guitar and electronics. At its core, ‘Play Scar’ is an album of unrepentant diversity, united through Abrahams astounding sense of composition and focus. In another artist’s hands these elements might be rendered too divergent and too esoteric, but sculpted by Chris Abrahams, each piece is a continent of sound, in an auditory world of his making. ‘Play Scar’ is unique, compelling and most of all visionary." [label info] www.room40.org "Various works of Chris Abrahams have been reviewed before, but as far as I could judge they were recordings with other people. According to the press sheet this is his fourth solo release, but the first to be reviewed then by Vital Weekly. Abrahams is, as a musician part of the Necks, which are described as an avant-jazz trio, but that's not shown in his solo release. Abrahams plays piano, hammond, rhodes, church organ, guitar, tambourine, bells, Yamaha DX7, Nord Waldorf Q+, prophet vs kurzweil, auto harp and field recordings. Mostly things with keys that is. Its not an album that is easy to pin down. The electronics are mostly atmospheric, but there are some interesting variations to be noted. For once, this is not an album of droney ambient music. A track like 'Twig Blown' for instance revolves around samples drum sounds, and owes much more to musique concrete than ambient music, while 'Running Out' has sudden bursts of guitar like sounds, amidst a bed of low humming electronics and piano sounds. The (too) lengthy 'Birds And Wasps' is a piece of more loudly sounds than quietness. The fairground sounds of 'Jellycrown', while the opening 'There He Reclined' reminded of the obscure A-Tent release on Cherry Red (still not on CD, damn it!). See: a curious hybrid of electronic music which offers a great deal of variation, but then also a great sense of unified approach. A very refined album." [FdW/Vital Weekly] 2010 €13.00

The album also carries the honour of being the very first vinyl release of the label. ‘Obsidian Outlander’ slowly weaves together droning fabric of guitars and analog synths that melt together with abstract sounds and field recordings. Whereas earlier works have been more holistic in nature, 'Obsidian Outlander' is maybe the most narrow-focused thus far - bound to only certain frame and concept. The album exhales its nocturnal essence upon the listener and inhales this sensory experience back into Aeoga's mythopoetical dimension, crystallizing into a vision of a vigil standing before a slowly throbbing corpsecloth, while the black loom weaves the fabric of UN-inverse-OM.

AERE AETERNUS Humanity needs no Funeral LP From the new wave of 'apocalyptic' or 'doom/death industrial' bands surely one of most interesting and impressive projects, AERE AETERNUS build a de-humanized soundtrack full of dark drones, over-expressive tortured voices, and devastating sounds. There is no light in this hellish Miasma, imagine SLEEP CHAMBER meeting LUSTMORD meeting dark HYBRYDS... this is the very limited LP version with poster ! "Humanity Needs No Funeral", the first full-length album from AERE AETERNUS, was released on the French label Kaosthetik. With a multi-national and eclectic lineup, the band comprises Alex (MACABRE OMEN, THE ONE, RAZOR OF OCCAM), Claudio Alcara (FROSTMOON ECLIPSE, STROSZEK), Cyr (DARK SANCTUARY, ELKTRONIK SCIETY) and Radu. Drawing on the wide range and considerable musical experience of its members, AERE AETERNUS creates a dark, disturbing atmosphere that probably best fits within the ambient and minimalist genres, and which the band themselves describe as "half misanthropic ritual and half sex ritual." The dominant atmosphere combines a sense of impending insanity with sexual deviancy and a large dollop of occultism, creating a dark and troubling misanthropic sojourn that is relatively unique. The final track is probably the most musical, as it is centred on a guitar arpeggio, but no such concessions to convention are present elsewhere on this deeply troubling disk. The accompanying video (CD version ONLY) of "Invocation" shows a Satanic ritual in all its kitchsy glory. Recommended for those looking for something a darker than the usual entities.

"Betimes Black Cloudmasses is the highly-anticipated second album from Vincent De Roguin (Shora), Stephen O'Malley (SUNN0))), KTL), and Daniel O'Sullivan (Guapo). Like their genre- and audience-confounding debut Deep In Ocean Sunk the Lamp of Light, Betimes is an atmospheric, constantly changing piece that encompasses a mind-boggling array of different performance and processing techniques. The deeply psychedelic and moving results present a soundstage that is continually evolving, with new elements entering and leaving the fray every couple of seconds. Betimes includes significant contributions from free percussionists Nicolas Field and Alex Babel, who sprinkle the sound field with an almost FMP-style rush of splattering drum sound, raising the intensity of the music (without resorting to bashing). The album also features a brief but affecting vocal from Ulver mastermind Kristoffer Rygg, who made his first live appearance in over a decade when Aethenor played the Roadburn Festival in April 2008. Aethenor's third LP, featuring vocals and lyrics by David Tibet, will be released in Autumn 2008. 'Musically, Aethenor summon the most somnolent examples of Bernard Parmegiani, Organum, Nurse with Wound, Klaus Schulze, Igor Wakhevitch, Coil, Iancu Dumitrescu, and Charlemagne Palestine. Acousmatic drones ebb and flow into crackling and bubbling sonic clusters. Lulling piano motifs and lamenting chants shimmer into distant lunar horizons while oscillators spin and drove serenely into unchartered audial regions. Sometimes as calm as a silvery sea, so that every gentle cat's-paw and lapping wave is deafening. Sometimes as tempestuous as a fuming lava beach, spitting and popping at the surface.' -Daniel O'Sullivan " [label info] www.vhfrecords.com 2008 €17.50
Faking Gold and Murder LP "... Diese drei Urprinzipien, das sind hier gleichermaßen STEPHEN O'MALLEY (SUNN O))), KTL), DANIEL O'SULLIVAN (GUAPO) und VINCENT DE ROGUIN (SHORA), die sich mit ihrem neuen Werk nun ein drittes Mal im Æthenor zusammenfinden und mit “Faking Gold And Murder” ein dunkles Manifest alchemistischer Transmutationen niederlegen. Begleitet wird das Trio von den beiden Perkussionisten NICOLAS FIELD und ALEX BABEL, dem Gitarristen ALEXANDER TUCKER und dem hier bereits als ANOK PE auftretenden DAVID TIBET. Was immer sich aus dieser Zusammensetzung bereits herleiten ließe, nichts bereitet einen wirklich auf diese von okkulter Ritualistik geprägten Kompositionen vor, durchsetzt von Tibets apokalyptischen Inkantationen. Tosend setzt in dem ersten der vier übergangslosen und unbenannten Kapitel ein Schlagwerkgewitter ein, umbrodelt von den unterirdisch anmutenden Klängen des Keyboards und der Gitarre, während Tibet zu sphärischen Klängen des Beckens und des Glockenspiels seine mitunter zweistimmig intonierten albtraumhaften Visionen in die Komposition hineinwebt, nur um nach einigen Minuten wieder vom zeremoniell anmutenden Lärmen der Perkussionisten übertönt zu werden. Selbst in seinen leisesten Momenten ist das Ganze so komplex und durchdacht arrangiert, dass es an keiner Stelle seine hypnotisierende Wirkung einbüßt. Längst hat vollkommen unbemerkt das zweite Stück begonnen, traumhaft übergleitend in minimal intonierten Ambient, der nach und nach mit dem Einsatz der regengleichen Klänge des Rhodes und eines anhaltenden Drones an Intensität weiter zunimmt, bis Tibet das Stück mit einer wie aus weiter Ferne gesprochenen Passage zu einem von tiefen Bassfrequenzen dominierten düsteren Ende führt. Spätestens mit dem Beginn des dritten Kapitels wird man gewahr, dass dies alles unaufhörlich in einem stärker werdenden Sog in eine Tiefe zieht, deren Boden unabsehbar geworden ist und in der man längst die Orientierung verloren hat. Eine durch wellenartig geschlagene Handtrommeln aufgebaute Spannung liefert hier die Grundstimmung für die Verstörendste von Tibets Inkantationen, unterstützt und bald überrollt vom infernalischen Rumpeln und Brausen des Schlagwerks und der anderen Instrumente, sich verdichtend zu einem vor apokalyptischer Brachialgewalt starrendem Ende. Wie in einem Nachwort endet mit dem vierten Kapitel das Album im erdigen Drone des Harmoniums und sphärisch darüber flirrenden Keyboardklängen, die den Hörer, zu Tibets fast schon gesprochenem Epilog, auf eine beruhigende Weise erden und das erste Mal nach 35 Minuten wieder frei durchatmen lassen. “Faking Gold And Murder” ist ein für den aufmerksamen Zuhörer ungemein lohnenswertes Machwerk. Wer sich darauf einlässt, dem offenbaren sich die komplexen Kompositionen in einer an Greifbarkeit grenzenden Dimensionalität, der hat Teil an einem archaischen Ritual von schauderhafter Schönheit, gekonnt in Szene gesetzt durch das mal fragile, mal tosende Zusammenspiel der Musiker und intoniert von Tibets geisterhaften Deklamationen. Letztere sind es auch, die “Faking Gold And Murder” eine Dimension verleihen, die die beiden Vorgänger nicht aufweisen konnten und das Album so zum eingängigsten und wertvollsten aller bisherigen Æthenor-Alben machen." [Stefan O. / NONPOP] "Third earth shattering outing for Vincent De Roguin (Shora), Stephen O'Malley (Sunn0))), KTL) and Daniel O'Sullivan (Guapo). For Faking Gold and Murder, the core trio is joined by percussionists Nicolas Field and Alex Babel, as well as renown guitarist Alexander Tucker and the inimitable David Tibet. Faking Gold is Æ’s heaviest outing, driven by a weighty low end and the full fury of Babel and Field’s free-wheeling drums. The trio’s electronics, guitar, Rhodes, and organ ride the waves of sound in a tightly-controlled blare, leaving plenty of space for Tibet’s declarations of the mystical and supernatural. Tibet is on top form here, rising out of the tempest at just the right moment, almost plain-spoken in places – grounding the squall at times, voicing the apocalypse at others. “Brooding, primeval, dark alchemical epics are full of a ferocious intensity, sounding more like a starlit night being ripped open by lightning than a musical group. Intelligent and primal, like a dæmonic workshop, battering up Pandemoniums and dreaming of gold and murder, Æthenor are spectacular.”- David Tibet Cover design by Nicola Todeschini and Vincent De Roguin. CD is in a tri-fold letterpress folio, printed on heavy black art paper by Stumptown. Deluxe LP is 180 gram, pressed at RTI, in letterpress cover on heavy black art stock by Stumptown, with custom gold on black inner. Cut by John Golden. A fantastic sounding and looking item."

En Form For Bla do-LP "Aethenor is comprised of Stephen O'Malley (Sunn0))), KTL), Daniel O'Sullivan (Ulver, Mothlite, Guapo), Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver) and Steve Noble (N.E.W., Company, etc.). En Form For Bla documents the continued evolution of this unlikely collective, a collision of players from various avant, improv, metal, and "other" threads who together make a unique and arresting sound. Documenting three gigs in Oslo recorded in 2010, the album is deep and weird, with liquid sounds juddering around the occasionally identifiable percussion or Rhodes motif. In the evolution from a side project / studio group to a frequently working live act, Aethenor kept their sound intact, taking the musique-concrete-style transitions and "what's that sound" ethos of their three previous efforts directly to the stage. Noble, having spent a couple of decades playing drums with Derek Bailey and other well-known UK improvisers, moves the music along subtly, keeping much of the focus on the burbling sound mass. O'Malley's guitar, an instrument of extreme viscera in Sunn0))), is used with restraint, providing occasional low menace but mostly mixing it up with O'Sullivan's thematic lines and Rygg's sound treatments. The overall effect is atmospheric rather than sedate--something like a modern, small group version of Miles Davis' classic "He Loved Him Madly" or Nurse with Wound's Spiral Insana. Other than perhaps Supersilent, no one else is working this sonic vocabulary today. Designed by O'Malley, the deluxe double-LP version is pressed on white vinyl and packaged with printed inner sleeves; the CD is in a card folio. Aethenor will continue to tour extensively in support of their catalog, with ten dates in Italy in December 2010 and additional shows in the works." [label info] www.vhfrecords.com 2011 €21.00
  Hazel LP "Hazel is the 5th record from this group of eclectic travelers, who bring their considerable pedigrees together in unexpected and original ways. Looking at the people involved, it would be reasonable to expect a massive blowout of sound, but everyone plays with remarkable and effective restraint. The music is atmospheric and layered, with bits and pieces of identifiable rock moves peeking out from under a thick blanket of hard-to-identify drift. Based on live recordings made on a lengthy tour of Italy in 2010, the recordings have been extensively edited and supplemented, but without losing the elemental sound of a group playing live together. While there’s plenty of weird ambient sound to be heard, this isn’t a sound-effects/”pedalboard” record. Like the preceding “En Form for Bla” album, Noble’s drums anchor the music. The drumming is spare and considered, sometimes lashing out with abstract punctuation, and other times laying out a Can-like groove. O’Malley’s guitar is also restrained, providing a bed for O'Sullivan's constantly morphing Rhodes, synths and electronic effects. Kristoffer Rygg contributes a rousing vocal incantation to “Ermanna” and peppers the mix with ghostly modular details. Like their other records, this is not really like anything else out there right now. Sleeve designed by Stephen O’Malley. CD is in card folio printed by Stumptown Printers. LP is in Stoughton Tip-On Jacket, pressed at RTI, and includes download card." [label info] www.vhfrecords.com 2016 €22.00
AF URSIN Trois Memoires Discretes LP "Three introspective instrumental (English horn, flute, percussion, double bass, Hammond organ) compositions performed, recorded and mixed by Timo van Luijk during 2010-2012. Edition of 400 copies." [label info] www.lasciedoree.be "When he has his solo hat on, Timo van Luijk calls himself Af Ursin and his favorite format of release is the LP too. His covers are beautiful, just like the In Camera releases actually, but do not contain an awful lot of information, just like the In Camera releases actually. Af Ursin's music is less based on electronics, but more along the lines of acoustic instruments. Van Luijk uses a relatively small palette of sounds and works with them. I believe not in an analogue manner, but through the use of the computer. The a-side has the side long piece 'Sylphide', which seems to be build from a trombone or trumpet sound. A simple tune, repeated over and over again, with some pauses in between. Say the way Brian Eno did his early ambient pieces of loops of varying length, but then even more stripped down, reduced, minimal and perhaps also more classical. 'Taciturne', the first piece on the b-side is with flute sounds, but also with some highly obscured field recordings of objects moving in the far distant. 'Elegie' is then another piece for another instrument. It seems an organ of some kind, like a children's organ, or a harmonium, but perhaps pitched up a bit. I am not sure, but here to we have the same layered aspects as we had on the other side and yet at the same time this layering doesn't mean it's crowded. It has that same wonderful tranquil character as the other two pieces, or, in fact the two In Camera records. I play all of this music when I got up this autumn morning, mainly playing music and watching clouds pass outside, making darkness and sunlight change all the time, in a similar slow motion. This is just perfect. I should take a day off, play all Af Ursin records, In Camera's other two records and all of the Mirror releases. Sadly that can't be." [FdW/Vital Weekly] 2012 €17.00
AGLAIA Water inside the Light CD "The ear is pushed to spaces within which sound fluxes circulate, so it is for the entire duration of Water inside the lights. Each track is an environment, a procession of color schemes. Since becoming stalled, the Provincia castellorum is a perfect example, the diamond's point of the album. Each piece has been written and proposed for the listener to forget the known time for a rather unusual, unmarked but perceived time (Rotovia and Soft Wind).

AIDAN BAKER & IDKLANG In the Red Room LP "Format: LP (180gr, silk-screened sleeve, download code, 300 items) Release date: june 5th 2015 AIDAN BAKER (NADJA, B/B/S/) joins forces with IDKLANG aka MARKUS STEINKELLNER for two epic instrumentals, melting ambient, drone and krautrock into a psychedelic trip of pure beauty. For years now AIDAN BAKER has proved himself one of the most productive and versatile artists when it’s about postrock, drone or ambient. Since his beginnings in the early millennium, the guitarist has released numerous albums with his duo NADJA, CAUDAL, B/B/S/, solo and in various collaborations with artists like TIM HECKER, THISQUIETARMY or TROUM, documented on labels such as ALIEN8, IMPORTANT or MIASMAH. “In The Red Room” presents BAKER, currently living in Berlin, in a duo constellation with IDKLANG aka MARKUS STEINKELLNER (guitar), member of JAKUZI’S ATTEMPT and ARKTIS/AIR, who in the past has besides his own projects worked with ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE, AVA MENDOZA or EUGENE S. ROBINSON (OXBOW). With their guitars and effects the two create a gentle, yet uncanny ambience that unfolds in two epic pieces, each clocking in at around 20 minutes. As often with BAKER’s music, “In The Red Room” transgresses genres and instead melts their diverse elements into one: ambient’s detailed sound design is paired with drone’s experimental guitar approach and krautrock’s repetition for a psychedelic excursion of pure beauty. 180gr LP incl. download code, housed in a silk-screened sleeve, in a limited edition of 300 copies. … something really new in Baker’s extensive output … pure improvisation, inspiration out of the moment.

AIN SOPH Ars Regia LP "Originally released on cassette by Nekrophile Rekords in far 1986, finally out for the first time on vinyl the undisputed Manifesto of esoteric ritual musick. Includes a precious 52 pages booklet featuring also previously unreleased magick-content writings by Ain Soph founder members! Limited to 200 copies." [label info] www.trips-und-traume.com "Es ist nicht leicht, etwas Allgemeines über Ain Soph zu sagen. Die Interessen und Ausdrucksweisen der römischen Band haben sich in den knapp drei Jahrzehnten seit ihrer Gründung zum Teil extrem gewandelt. Das gleiche lässt sich über die Stimmung ihrer Musik sagen, ähnliches über die Haltung des von einigen Umbesetzungen geprägten Kollektivs, die immer deutlich präsent ist, auch dann, wenn sie vordergründig vage und ungreifbar bleibt. Vergleicht man bestimmte Referenzen im Bandkosmos untereinander oder mit den Interessen der einzelnen Musiker in ihren anderen Aktivitäten, so lässt sich auch ein Fan sicher nicht von allem gleichermaßen anstecken, schätzt vielleicht auch nicht jeden Sampler, auf dem die Band vertreten war. Doch nur ein unbefugter Zaungast würde dahinter Beliebigkeit vermuten, aus Unempfänglichkeit gegenüber dem gleichbleibend starken Moment des Auratischen, das sich wie ein dunkelroter Faden durch das Oeuvre der Italiener zieht und auf kaum greifbare Weise Traditionales und Rock’n'Roll, Sakralität und urbanen Lifestyle zusammenhält. Dieses Moment ästhetisch oder inhaltlich zu definieren erscheint mir als hoffnungsloses Unterfangen und soll hier erst gar nicht versucht werden. Ein besonderer Bruch stellte bekanntlich ihre zu Beginn der 90er vollzogene Hinwendung zum Songwriting dar, die sich mit dem Wandel Current 93s vergleichen lässt und eine inhaltliche Verschiebung von esoterischen zu weltlicheren Themen nach sich zog. Bei genauerem Hinsehen hat es allerdings viel häufigere Brüche gegeben, und die gerade über Trips und Träume als LP wiederveröffentlichte „Ars Regia“ markierte Mitte der 80er den Abschluss der rein rituellen Tape-Releases, auf die mit „Kshatriya“ und anderen Veröffentlichungen eine ebenso produktive Übergangszeit folgte, in der Ain Soph zwar noch keine reinen Songalben aufnahmen, aber schon wesentlich extravertierter klangen. Es ist fraglich, ob man heute noch ein der Alchemie und verschiedenen mystisch/okkulten Traditionen verpflichtetes Album wie „Ars Regia“, dass die königliche Kunst schon im Namen trägt, herausbringen könnte, ohne dass es überkommen wirken oder auf Witch House-Spielereien hinauslaufen würde – in den 80ern, in denen man noch Zeit und Mühen investieren musste, um sich überhaupt einen Einblick in diese Themenwelt zu verschaffen und lange bevor selbsternannte Klassikfans das sakral Düstere für sich entdeckt und trivialisiert hatten, war ein Tape voll ungreifbarer, hintergründiger Dunkelheit wie dieses in all seiner klanglichen Reduziertheit radikal innovativ. Ist man im richtigen Modus für solche Musik, erkennt man in den einfachen Klängen eine große Opulenz. Verwehte Stimmen, die an Choräle erinnern, repetitive, verwischte Bläser- und Streicherklänge und nicht zuletzt gemurmelte Beschwörungsformeln erschaffen zusammen mit den anspielungsreichen Titeln eine Szenerie, in der trotz der beängstigenden Atmosphäre eine starke Erhabenheit erfahrbar wird. Auch wenn eine der Spoken Word-Passagen zeitweise in diabolisches Grunzen übergeht, bleibt die Stimmung doch ausgesprochen dezent und letztlich viel geheimnisvoller als jede plakative Effektversessenheit. Bezeichnenderweise entpuppten sich die Musiker nach dem Verlassen ihrer dunklen Nische auch nicht als Hochglanzgrufties, sondern als virile Psych Rocker mit Sinn für kräftige Farben und anarchischen Humor. Dass die Musik – auch und gerade, wenn man sie lange nicht gehört hat – noch immer zu wirken weiß, spricht für ihren Ausnahmecharakter. Gehalt, Tiefe, Echtheit und all die abgegriffenen Wörter, die man kaum noch verwenden mag, sind doch angebrachter, als wenn man das Album auf Schnöseldeutsch als ein Stück Erinnerungskultur feiern würde, als bloses Dokument einer Zeit, als musikalische Regionen entdeckt wurden, die heute weitgehend ausgelaugt sind. Denn dafür steht es viel zu sehr für sich. Die Neuauflage erscheint in 200er Auflage, zusammen mit einer 52seitigen Sammlung zum Teil unveröffentlicher Essays, und findet hoffentlich nicht nur Gehör bei denen, die es bereits kennen."

AKATOMBO Trace Elements CD " In common with all swim releases this album is hard to pin down to a genre. One could define this as a very urban sound with it's roots in hip hop and close observation would reveal this statement to be entirely true BUT without listening this would create an entirely erroneous view of what this album is. The author & main protagonist Paul Kirk is in fact an ex-patriot Scot living in Hiroshima and the album crackles with the urban displacement of a stranger in a strange land. It is a music which is not separated from the place in which it is made, disembodied voices, street sounds, telephones, bad connections and urban detritus are constant reminders of the Japanese cityscape. Paul Kirk says - "Trace Elements came about through a fascination with the layering of sound - any type of sound - from any source. Not necessarily those that most of us think of as musical". He goes on to say - "Each song on the album was written, recorded and mixed on the same day of it's conception - in Hiroshima, in a studio that specializes in soundtracks for TV adverts with the help of an engineer who didn't speak English." Paul also employed a few musicians to add to the effect those include the former bass player of Long Fin Killie, Colin Greig and some mates from his days running the Human Condition label (which actually put out Idlewild's first single but we won't hold it against them!) Grant MacNamara & Gavin Henderson. Meanwhile, guitarist Masaru Saeki actually toured with Japan & Roxy music!" [label info] www.swimhq.com 2003 €14.00
AKERLUND, LARS Xenon CD "Swedish composer Lars Åkerlund releases Xenon, his second album on the Firework Edition Records label. Xenon is based on recordings of machinery and activities of everyday life. The sound has been analyzed, treated and reconstructed; building a new framework. Xenon is a chemical element that occurs in the Earth's atmosphere. Some of the properties of xenon are anaesthesia, transposition and levitation. Anesthesia is the condition of having sensation blocked or temporarily taken away. The speed of sound in xenon gas is slower than that in air. Xenon lowers the resonant frequencies of the vocal tract when inhaled. This produces a characteristic lowered voice timbre (an effect opposite to the high-timbred voice caused by inhalation of helium). Xenon gas at high pressure has a density exceeding that of some solids and can be used to levitate objects through buoyancy. These features relate to ideas that were important during the process of making this music. Curriculum Vitae: Lars Åkerlund is a composer and performer of electronic and computer music. Starting as a guitarist he increasingly got more and more involved into the contemporary art scene of the 90's and was one the founding members of the Lucky People Center (LPC) and has since then been working in collaborations with other artists, choreographers, and filmmakers as well as a solo artist. Lars Åkerlund's work includes solo electronic music, live-electronics, instrumental music, films, videos and performance.

AKITA, MASAMI Wattle pic-LP Elevator Bath's series of picture disc LPs (each record being adorned with full-color artwork by the recording artist) comes to its conclusion with a top-notch new release from the great Masami Akita. Wattle is a new, two-part composition featuring Akita's traditional soup of unidentifiable metallic clanging, crushing feedback, jagged white noise, and various effects. It does not disappoint. There are no drums, no guitars, no vocals; just scorching electronic mayhem of the highest quality. The colorful images here are based on photographs shot and subtly manipulated by Masami Akita, who sends the following message: "Turkey is beautiful animal and do not eat them." Agreed. Masami Akita is, of course, the artist behind the seminal, vegan, straight edge, noise project, Merzbow. He lives in Tokyo. This picture disc LP has been released in an edition of 270 copies. Every copy purchased directly from Elevator Bath will include a download code for high quality files of the entire audio content of this LP. www.elevatorbath.com 2016 €20.00
AKITA, MASAMI / JOHN DUNCAN The Black Album LP "LP on green vinyl. Each record cover was finished with a shotgun blast !!! Edition of 300 copies. 'Masami's and my conversations look like heroin addicts talking : A phrase. A five minute silence. Another phrase. A five minute silence. A question. A five minute silence. Another phrase. A five minute silence. An answer. Et cetera. The BLACK ALBUM shows what's going on in our heads.' John Duncan" [label info] www.touretterecords.com "John Duncan, der früher für seine spektakulären Performances berüchtigt war und heute mit eklatant kurzen Konzerten mehr und mehr seine Fans vergrault, umreißt den Grundcharakter seiner Kollaboration mit Masami Akita als etwas, das man tatsächlich von den wenigen kursierenden Merzbow-Interviews her kennt: “Masami’s and my conversations look like heroin addicts talking: A phrase. A five minute silence. Another phrase. A five minute silence. A question.“ u.s.w. „The Black Album shows what’s going on in our heads.” Es war wohl eine für Soundart-Kollaborationen nicht untypische Mailart-Geschichte, die bei den beiden immer mal ins Stocken geriet. Das Basismaterial der drei Stücke stammt wohl durchweg von Duncan, der im vorigen Jahr zahlreiche Aufnahmen im nuklearen Forschungslabor im italienischen Gran Sasso gemacht hatte. Man könnte spitzfindig sein und die Langsamkeit, mit der sich die gegenseitige Bearbeitung und die Korrespondenz zwischen Japan und Duncans Wahlheimat Italien in dem Track, der die komplette erste Seite ausfüllt, gespiegelt sehen, denn das Stück braucht eine ganze Zeit, um sich von seiner eigenen Statik zu lösen. Die ersten Minuten sind geprägt von digitalem Glitch-Gefrickel, bei dem sich nur im Kleinen etwas tut, wenn leichte Perkussionsansätze, sinusartige Geräusche und schrille Hochfrequenzen kurz an der Oberfläche erscheinen, um in Sekundenschnelle wieder abzutauchen. Doch selbst wenn sich nach einiger Zeit technoide Rhythmen andeuten, ist von Dynamik und klanglicher Entgrenzung keine Spur auszumachen. Erst gegen Ende bricht für kurze Zeit das entlastende Chaos in das ansonsten recht ohrenfreundlich gestaltete Stück ein. Dass die beiden ihr Gespür für Klangdesign auch kurzweilig einbringen können, beweisen sie v.a. auf dem ersten Track der zweiten Seite, denn der bietet geschliffenen digitalen Harsh Noise mit allem, was dazu gehört: Rauschen, Prasseln und ein kontinuierlicher Fluss, der sich auch durch vorübergehende Tempowechsel und hektische Brüche nicht aus der Richtung bringen lässt. Nach diesem kurzen, aber intensiven Sturm bildet das ambiente Drone gegen Ende einen geerdeten Gegenpart. Die Zusammenarbeit erschien auf grasgrünem Vinyl in einem im Schrotsalvenstil ganz individuell traktierten schwarzen Cover." [Uwe Schneider / African Paper] africanpaper.com/2015/08/15/john-duncan-masami-akita-the-black-album/#more-10626 "Something I didn't realize until today, is that John Duncan lived in Japan for quite some time, and surely met Masami Akita from Merzbow in those years, but for whatever reason never worked together. Now they did. In a short period of time this is the second collaboration with John Duncan, although his record with Jim O'Rourke didn't make it to these pages. The cover of this album isn't black as in all black as in "It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black." It has the titles in white and through the shotgun holes you see the pink inner sleeve. The vinyl itself is green. The shotgun holes leave traces of paper on the vinyl itself. Duncan made the source recordings and I assume they both worked on the end result. On the side with the black label things are in a straightforward Merzbow-like noise manner. Loud, distorted, like a hundred records stuck into very dirty grooves, but mixed together with much consideration. Unlike a more average solo record by Merzbow, things here are mixed with a keen eye for variation and occasionally we hear the original sound sources, which seem to be field recordings of heavy weight objects in a large space, or maybe some sort of shortwave. Maybe this more careful yet not always careful music is the reason why this is released under Akita's own name and not Merzbow? A pretty strong record if you ask me. Lots of variation, lots of consideration and lots of noise. Everybody wins." [FdW/Vital Weekly] 2014 €25.00
AKIYAMA, MITCHELL Mort aux vaches CD Wieder ein kleines Verpackungswunder in der MORT AUX VACHES-Serie: glänzendes, 2fach gefaltetes Kupferblech mit Prägung, sieht einfach genial aus! Und auch musikalisch ist dies ein Schmuckstück: Ein one-tracker (43+ min.) mit äusserst zarten, stimmungsvollen Gitarren-Drones, die digital aufbereitet tänzeln und feinste innerliche Resonanzen spürbar werden lassen.... “Packaging comes in embossed copper (no printing). Akiyama's contribution to the Mort Aux Vaches series is an unedited improvisation recorded for VPRO radio in April, 2004. Consisting of guitar washes and digital interruptions, the set was recorded without any use of samples or prepared material. In keeping with Akiyama's ethic of spontaneous composition this recording is a document of a moment. Akiyama's music is a study in fiction and texture. He records compositions and improvisations for piano, strings, and other instruments, and restructures them in his studio in a post-facto montage. Playing on the distortions in causality that recording technology can effect, Akiyama creates music that lays claim to a moment of creation that never happened. Imperfections - fingers scraping strings, breaths and other signs of humanity - are underscored resulting in a digital simulacrum of performance. Located somewhere in the interstices of classical, electronic composition and post-rock, his works vacillate between delicate melodies and confrontational bursts of noise.” [press release] www.staalplaat.com 2004 €14.50
ALEXIADIS, PANOS Katabasis LP "‘Katabasis' is the first solo album proper from Panos Alexiadis -an electronic musician based in Athens- following a series of cassette and cdr releases with various projects/aliases. With a title that translates to ‘descend’, Katabasis is a concrète sound environment generated through real-time synthesis using modular electronics, acoustic instrument samples and location recordings. Aiming to create a distinct psychoacoustic experience, the music avoids any overt tonal structures, focusing instead on the construction of immersive acoustic spaces that display strong ties to classic electronic music as much as they reveal Alexiadis’ unique voice. The music was mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, and is produced on an edition of 300 on vinyl. The first side of the LP houses the main piece itself, while the second provides space for an addendum which extends the possibilities of this music to a purely electronic piece. ‘15:21’ mirrors the first track in its construction but drops the use of any pre-recorded elements from its palette, revealing the stark and raw beauty at the root of the artist’s work." [label info] rekemrecords.tumblr.com "This is the first 'proper' release by Panos Alexiadis, who already released music on cassette and CDR before, but under different names and projects. The title, apparently, translates as 'descend' and the music is made with the use of "modular electronics, acoustic instrument samples and location recordings" and the record has two pieces, the part one of the title piece on side A, and '15:21' on the other side. There is some difference between both sides, even when they also seem to employ similar approaches. The approach is, at least that's what I think, to play sounds according to some plan but in the stage of execution all a bit looser operated. It means that the music is not strictly composed, nor entirely improvised, but it's somewhere between these ends. That's what makes both sides similar, I guess. The difference lies in the variety of sounds used, or in the limitation there-of. In '15:21', Alexiadis seems to be using mostly the modular synthesizer in solo mode, save for the addition of effects - reverb and delay, although perhaps also created with the same modular synthesizer. That makes this side not unlike what they call 'early electronics', like a private pressing from those days of a long forgotten composer. Things are a bit more complex on the other side of this record, the title piece. Here he uses more sound sources, even when they are not always easy to be recognized, but the multitude of inputs makes this a more complex piece of music than the other side. It's a bit chaotic at times and in the end it sounds a bit more improvised and more loosely put together. I enjoyed the less complex '15:21' over this one, since it had a more clear build up and that works for me a bit better. But also for the title piece one could say it is like an obscure 'early electronics' record. Nice work altogether." [FdW/Vital Weekly] 2014 €15.00
ALGOL All these Worlds are yours CD A fifth full-length album by _Algol_ brings to you digital and analog sounds combined with some soothing guitar tunes. A conceptual and contemplating album for virtual cosmic journeys. Enjoy! Instruments and mastering by Daniil Kazantsev. Album Design SeasofBlack & Kati Astraeir (inner layout) Released by Ksenza Records www.infinitefog.ru _Algol_ is a project name belonging to Siberian soundscaper (scientist, traveler, photographer...) Daniil Kazantsev, who is currently based in the UK. "All These Worlds Are Yours" album is out since the middle of June 2016 as a collaborative release between Russian labels Ksenza Records and Infinite Fog Productions. My attention was immediately caught by a catchy 4-panel digipak featuring splendid artwork by Italian artist Michele Carnielli working under his moniker of Seals Of Blackening (also a vocalist and guitarist with doom metal band Kröwnn) and by our kindred soul from the Sonoran Desert, Kati Astraeir, who is credited for additional inner layout. Nice work, guys!!! 4 and a half minutes long "Accelerated Descent" reveals the journey with slightly balladic, nearly medieval-like tides, where persistently spiraling patterns commingle with aeonianly emerging, droning and evanescing, intangibly rawer vistas. "Under The Starlit Sky", clocking to 7 minutes, glides gracefully towards nocturnally fascinating realms, masterfully bridging ethereally enrapturing dronescapes with quietly permeating transcendental glimpses. "Hidden Behind The Light" is invaded by monochromatically immense expanses, intricately guarded by clandestinely sneaking ambiguous siren calls. Breathtakingly infinite sceneries fully unfold here! "Frozen Plateux" safely remains on the path of utterly enveloping amorphousness, splendorously diving into the deepest ends of atmospheric tranquility, meticulously reinforced by occasional cyber-tech breaths. Exquisitely monumental magmas, jaw-droppingly flatlined, are insistently counterpointed by warmly undulating mirages, while intriguing desolate dissonances percolate here and there. A stunningly immersing 10-minute composition, one of the pinnacles!!! The next piece, "The Sands Of Tatooine", dives into enigmatically labyrinthine domains, merging calmly enveloping panoramic quietudes with sinuously twisted reverberating vestiges. A deep space voyaging at its most engrossing continues! "The Windswept Terrain", with 11:33 the longest piece, attracts wit its mysterious dronesculpting, where static surroundings commingle with intenser nuances, displaying evocatively enveloping passages, slightly disruptive hissing undercurrents and euphorically climaxing epic magnitudes. A very good one! 8-minute closer "The Dune Sea" delves deeply into unfathomable depths, superbly amalgamating majestically droning monochromatism with spellbindingly growling and buzzing traceries and thrillingly mind-bending meridians. Enter now the gates to abyssal nothingness!!! Obviously a grand finale! "All These Worlds Are Yours" CD, which is limited to 333 copies, is certainly a very strong debut by _Algol_ on a glass mastered format, so don't hesitate to grab your own copy, I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!! And the digital version includes 7-minute bonus track "A Fading Planet". If I am right, discography of _Algol_ features another 5 digital albums, one of them "Heaven Debris" (2011) was released also on a CDr format via Snowy Tension Pole label from Poland, but I believe this one is sold out already. And one of the digital albums, "Goldilocks Zone" was released on earthMantra. Not to forget, Daniil Kazantsev is also the mastermind behind dark ambient project Stuzha with two acclaimed albums, "Siberian Sketches" and "Butugichag". The first one was released as a CDr by Snowy Tension Pole during 2011 and now, few days ago, reshaped and reissued on CD format in a 4-panel digipak on Ksenza Records. Limited collector's wooden box is available as well. On the same label is available also "Butugichag" CD album (2015), which elaborately deals with Kolyma Gulag labor camp theme. If you are a connoisseur of venturous dark ambient explorations, don't miss these two powerful works!!! And to make the story complete, Daniil has most recently released via earthMantra his newest digital album entitled "67P" under his newest moniker Black Wanderer. A batch of exciting releases awaits to be carefully examined! Richard Gürtler (Nov 01, 2016, Bratislava, Slovakia) 2016 €12.00
ALIEN BRAINS It's all History now - Tape Works 1979-85 4 x LP BOX "Alien Brains was an abstract non-collective initiated in 1979 by Nigel Jacklin. Over the years Nigel co-operated with the likes of Mark Lancaster (Instant Automatons, 391), Allen Adams (Methods Of Execution, The Blanks, The Destructors), Philip and Richard Rupenus (Funeral Danceparty / The New Blockaders), Philip Sanderson (Storm Bugs / Snatch Tapes), Metgumbnerbone, Harold Schellinx (The Young Lions), David Jackman (Organum) and various random acquaintances (with limited musical skills). There was no fixed line up; there are no photo’s of Alien Brains as (in the words of Nigel Jacklin) “we” did not exist. Their works employed elements of musique concrete, the industrial avant-garde, drone music, the boogie woogie and dub. Alien Brains tools of the trade included field recordings, tape editing, use of everyday objects and devices as well as unconventionally applied traditional acoustic instruments. A keen fan of acoustics, the locations in which Alien Brains recorded or appeared were as important as the tools they used to produce their sounds. Not managed by the fictional ‘Another Corporation Incorporated’ Alien Brains later metamorphosed into Verdenskang with Jacklin releasing one tape under his own name. Little did he realise, when he recorded Menial Disorders and Blatantly Nihilist at the age of 17, how Emile Durkheim’s concept of anomie would later ring true to the foundations of Alien Brains. They performed live on several occasions, in London, Aberdeen, Newcastle and Amsterdam. A total of 7 Tapes were released between 1980 and 1985 with contributions to several compilations including Deleted Records (Deleted Funtime), Snatch Tapes (Snatch 3) and Ptose Production (Assemblée Générale No 2, Boule (Joyeux Noël).

Aura Seminalis CD Auf AURA SEMINALIS verwendet ALIO DIE vokales und chorales Material, welches elektronisch verfremdet oder mit elektronischen Effekten angereichert wird. Dabei entstehen zwei lange Stücke von unglaublicher Emotionalität und Tiefe, frei fliessend & sanft wirbelnd um imaginäre Zentren....Die sakralen Choräle verschmelzen auf eine einmalige Art und Weise mit akustisch-elektronischen Sound, vielleicht das beste ALIO DIE -Album bisher, auf jeden Fall aufregend anders als vorherige Arbeiten ! "The new work by Alio Die it is part of the Castle's sonorisation series, titled AURA SEMINALIS. The first track 'Sine Tempore part I-III' it's an epicentre of mystic music carachterized by a gold cathedral's atmosphere, while 'Aura Seminalis part I-II' displays an ascensional soundworld of arcane purity and rare beauty. One of the best works by Alio die so far. CD packaged in an elegant three sides digipack!! HSL 045" [label info] "This latest release in a recent outpouring of creativity from Italy's master of organic drones is possibly the most unique in this artist's long career as a sound sculptor. While most of his recent releases on his own Hic Sunt Leones label have been collaborations, this is his first solo effort since the release of the 10 inch vinyl Aurea Hora. As the elaborate Renaissance style artwork on the cover suggests, this music points in the direction of a more "classical" sound insofar as the utilization of Gregorian style chants. These are successfully incorporated into Musso's customary drones comprised of field recordings, acoustic instruments, and electronic processing, giving this disc a particularly reverent ambience. Don't think Enigma or Delerium, because as one listens to this they may be inclined to bow their head and meditate or pray rather than nod or chill. I imagine that if today's sound recording abilities were available during those times evoked by the artwork or chants, they too would have then added the organic elements that Alio Die does, creating a balance of both the heavenly and the earthbound. Fans of his music may or may not find this approach a departure from what they are accustomed to, but it is certain that this artist is going beyond his previous huge body of work to encompass a broader sonic pallette."

  Deconsecrated and Pure CD "Deconsecrated and Pure is an evocative liturgy from the realm where electronic music meets acoustic drones, found objects, sacral voices and field recordings. Italian ambient-acoustic sonic sculptor Stefano Musso returns for his first solo Alio Die release on Projekt in 20 years. Don't get the idea he's been on vacation, however! Since 1992 he has released 37 collaborative CDs and 19 solo CDs; this makes Deconsecrated and Pure Alio Die's 20th solo release! Welcome back! The processed traditional instruments and natural textures float alongside rich electro-organic drones, creating a perfect introspective soundtrack with a medieval and sacral atmosphere. Serene and meditative textures combine in a chorus of circular and interwoven sounds, reflecting the harmony of the cosmos as an opus of inner stillness. Processed and layered into the mix are vocal pieces by Claudio Merulo. The work of this 16th century Venetian Renaissance composer was performed by Paolo Tognon and Quoniam Ensemble di Dulciane and De Labyrintho Ensemble Della Rinascenza, creating the essence of a historical religious feel. The gradual evolution of the arrangements create a strong impression that the listener has been carried across time and space. Elements such as sonically-tampered Middle East horns (The dulciana, a sort of early basoon/oboe), solemn atmospheres of the courts of the Italian Renaissance, and evocative soundscapes cosmic and ethereal combine for holiness and trascendence. To create this work, Stefano selected fragments of sessions recorded with the acoustic instruments, modifying them through multi-layered loops. Pitch and frequencies changed, effects were added, other sound objects were played and processed into the mix. This was further augmented with the electronics and field recordings adding more layers metamorphosizing the whole atmosphere into a deep trance mood. What makes Alio Die's compositions glow is the attention to detail and fluidity; something from the background floats to the foreground as it is slowly modified, or perhaps it's the gentle addition of a bagpipe or stringed instruments. It all intertwines through constant modulation, addition of atmospheric sounds, and re-contextualization. Marvelously floating and hauntingly expressive, Deconsecrated and Pure feels like a liturgical poem within an archaic mausoleum distorted by time." [label info] www.projekt.com 2012 €15.00
ALIO DIE & FESTINA LENTE Il sogno di un piano veneziano a Parigi CD “With Il Sogno di un Piano Veneziano a Parigi Alio Die and Festina Lente creates together a place of the memory where the past rest with a filmy nostalgia.. it is a dramatically joint that finally extinguish itself to the become.. there at the border where the personal moment ends, and the taste of an impersonal experience starts, with a longer breath. Like life belongs to the cosmos, and time belongs to the seasons. After a long friendship a pianoforte met a zither, their incorporating sounds brought on wings of an ancient and lully dream, in foggy layers of impalpable feelings and in a wayward journey towards the inland. The field recordings were collected in Paris, East-Asia, and America by Alio Die, kimsonJa and Francesco Paladino such as rituals, animals, objects and spontaneous voices in the street... surround and conduce towards parallel worlds. The ambient tracks are alternated with more intense and obscure moments, without breaking the solution of the continuum, through the organic elaborations of the sound's dye... loops of notes and silences, subtle presences of the field recordings that spy both: mankind and nature… So the treated piano and the nipped and scrubbed cords, the voices and noises, the resonances of metals... calls back the memory's body, that comes to the surface with great glangour. Dissolvent bright and dark colours, putting voices together to a poetical inspiration and a glamorous and precise lyricism of the entire inside.” [label press release] 2005 €13.50
ALIO DIE & MARTINA GALVAGNI Eleusian Lullaby CD "Oasen-Ambient" auf dieser Zusammenarbeit von ALIO DIE mit der italienischen Sängerin MARTINA GALVAGNI, hell klingend & klar, eine paradiesische Schönheit und Geborgenheit heraufbeschwörend, zärtlich, warm & sinnlich. ALIO DIE benutzt wieder diverse Instrumente wie Zither & Sitar und field recordings, die er auf seine typische Art und Weise verwebt... "Eleusian Lullaby is a sensual ethereal-ambient collaboration between Italian soundsculptor Stefano Musso (aka Alio Die) and Italian singer Martina Galvagni. It is the third release in Projekt's series of Alio Die's vocal collaborations following 2001's Apsaras (with Amelia Cuni) and 2005's Mei-Jyu (with Jack or Jive). Eleusian Lullaby blends the natural, warm and earthy ambient compositions of Alio Die with the elegant, neo-classical voice of Martina, merging notes and silence into an expanded dreamscape. This is lullaby music like an aural caress from darkness into the light. The combination of the vocal melodies with the abstract qualities of the loops and instruments creates a suspended near-dream space, intimate and sensual at the same time. The opening track, 'The Oniroid Sleep,' displays a foggy atmosphere where the voices wash beneath the acoustic layers of the cithara, sitar, kalimba and field recordings. On the second track, 'A Drone Song for Alienor,' the voice is clearer and more upfront with all its powerful beauty apparent creating an intense and fragile song with a neo-classical approach. The third song, 'Eleusian Lullaby,' was created as a totally free improvisation of psaltery and voice; the text is sung in a dialect of the Engadina language (Switzerland). Drones and loops were added later from the original recordings. 60 minutes of music, composed by acoustical improvisations with voice, psaltery, zither, cithara, bells, metals and field recordings. The original recordings were made in locations in the woods and in ancient medieval places then processed and layered by Alio Die at Temple Studio in 2005-2006. Listen to this trance music in the dark and be lead to a tranquil earthly garden. Like in the best lullabies, you are caressed as you are transported to a mysterious parallel soundworld of peace and harmony." [label notes] "Three elongated tracks making up a full length album of arty, filmic experimental soundscaping. Delicate and subtle, yet slightly discordant, melodies from archaic stringed instruments interweave with ambient drones, tinkling bells, and wordless vocals with Middle Eastern, medieval and folk touches, as well as sophisticated and evocative neoclassical vocals that are used as more of a focus of the track rather than the other styles that put in briefer appearances. Less song-oriented than many Projekt releases, but its ethereal nature, coupled with the slightly dark take on folk/world/classical music, fits right in with much of the label's other output. Combining elements familiar from the ambient/drone/experimental genre with creative, intellectual ideas of their own, the album is relaxing yet slightly unsettling at times, and goes beyond music and into the realms of aural art."

ALOG Amateur do-LP "Double LP version, deluxe gatefold sleeve. Alog are duo Espen Sommer Eide and Dag-Are Haugan, and this is their fourth full-length release for the Rune Grammofon label. Since forming in 1997, Alog have been among Norway's leading performers of experimental electronic music. They are mainstays at Rune Grammofon and have been with the label since their debut album Red Shift Swing was released in 1999. They have increasingly worked with various acoustic instruments and in collaboration with other musicians for long recording sessions in special locations. Travelling around the west coast of Norway with Nicholas H. Møllerhaug and Nils Økland sidekick Sigbjørn Apeland, they recorded in music schools in an attempt to capture the unique sound of each selection of instruments found. Because of bad weather they could be stuck for days on islands off the wild northern coast recording themselves playing any instruments they could find and building more of their own. These sessions were subsequently worked on in the studio to bring out the unique spirit of this release, characterized by a curious and fresh approach to playing that is often lost in the process of becoming a virtuoso on a singular instrument. The word "amateur" originally denotes a person who is motivated by a passion or love for their activity. It has been the goal of Alog on this album to preserve and enhance this special energy in their songs, and to do this they use their "augmented acoustics" technology and bring out the hidden "amateur" energy of each song."

ALTIERI, CORRADO / GIANLUCA FAVARON The System of Objects CD "Silentes presents a new collaborative effort between two prominent artists of Italy's electronic and experimental scene, Corrado Altieri (Candor Chasma, Monosonik, Uncodified) and Gianluca Favaron (ab'she, Under The Snow, Z'been). Inspired by Jean Baudrillard's essay of the same name, "The System of Objects" offers seven compositions combining field recordings, analogue textures, computer music and concrète sounds. Altieri e Favaron dig deep in the unconscious of the french philosopher, devising a hypothetical music score of his manifesto on the relations between objects universe and consumer society ideologies: drones and digital pulses, processed tapes and multi-layered frequencies make for a voyage to the borders of ambient, noise and radical experiments." [label info] www.silentes.net "Releases on Silentes are getting a bit more sparse these days, perhaps because of the economic tide etc, but I am also happy to note that they do more and more LPs. However the first new one is a CD with Gianluca Favaron on computer and one Corrado Altieri, who gets credit for electronics and tapes. Favaron is a man whose work appeared a lot on Silentes (as we'll see here too), and I never heard of Altieri. The eight tracks on 'The System Of Objects' are relatively short: the whole album doesn't last more than thirty-five minutes and it's inspired by the book of the same name by Jean Baudrillard. In much of Favaron's work ambient and drones play an important role, even when they are created with the use of the computer. In this particular work however we find him in a somewhat more noisy role, owing more to musique concrete than to ambience. The whole thing has some heavily treated acoustic feel to it, creating seven quite densely knitted pieces of electronic music. Be this field recordings, be this acoustic sounds created with contact microphones, or whatever else, it's treated into great monolithic blocks of sound. In only a few pieces this kind of minimalism is left behind and more things happen at the same time, such as in the opening piece 'Objects And Time 1'. An excellent release of highly vibrant electronic music. Quite raw and intense, exactly the kind of noise I like. Not meaningless and pointless carrying on forever, but seven sharp, contrasting blasts." [FdW/Vital Weekly] 2013 €12.00
ALU Autismenschen CD Späte Veröffentlichung des ersten, bisher unveröffentlichten Album von 1980 von dieser deutschen Paranoia-Elektronik / „New Wave“-Gruppe, die aus zwei der drei Mitglieder der Krautrockband SAND bestand (deren LP „GOLEM“ auf World Serpent wiederveröffentlicht wurde!) . Liner-Notes von DAVID TIBET! “About the band: Alu was a seminal German synth-punk band active 1979-83. This CD is their unreleased first studio album from 1980. This is the unreleased first studio album by one of the pioneering German synth / electronic projects. Liner notes by David Tibet. The project of some of the members of Alu were in prior to Alu, Sand, enjoyed a fantastic revival a few years back (thanks in great part to David Tibet). Unearthing this release will bring much joy to anyone interested in the pioneering sound of German electronic music from the late 70s to mid 80s. Alu released two live LPs, a 7", and a small quantity of cassettes; all of these releases are, tragically, out of print. For those to whom Alu is a new name, comparable audio would be Suicide, Throbbing Gristle (circa 20 Jazz Funk Greats), Esplendor Geometrico, or Algebra Suicide, not to mention myriad electronic German bands who existed concomitant to Alu and have enjoyed recent reissues of their own, including Phonophobia, Die Todliche Doris, and Thorax-Wach. Labels with similar artists include Zick Zack and Twisted Knister. For the young'uns who like Wolf Eyes, this may be considered a worthy ancestor... Alu was born from the ashes of the seminal project Sand, whose releases were issued a few years ago through the persistence and passion of David Tibet. Not coincidentally, David Tibet also provided liner notes for this release. This release comes with a booklet of lyrics (in German), photos, plus a short biography (in English) of the band. Translations of the lyrics and other information on the band will be up soon at their recently created website, alugenerator.com. “....you may call me a retro freak, I prefer the old stuff, like Alu, or The Screamers or Suicide, with whom Alu has in common that they both combined the speed and energy of the punk rock, combined with analogue synthesizer stuff. Some of the more lengthy pieces, such as 'Halt Dich Fest' sound, with lenghty guitar doodlings show their krautrock background, but Alu is at their best in their shorter pieces: a screamy voice, full of doomsday paranoia, a continuous rhythm-box, simple melodies on the organ and guitar in a distorted mood. The real stuff that can't be beaten by a groove-box and microphone. The best re-discovery of 2005!” [FdW / Vital Weekly] 2005 €20.00
ALVARET ENSEMBLE Skeylja LP "---"Skeylja" ein erfundenes Wort aus der Kombination des friesischen Worts für die niederländische Insel Terschelling, "Skylge", und dem isländischem Wort für Insel, "Eyjan" --- Skeylja ist ein internationales Multimedia-Projekt, das von der Idee ausgeht, Improvisations-Musik und das Zusammentreffen von Musikern aus verschiedenen Ländern mit unterschiedlichen musikalischen Hintergründen zu verbinden, um eine spontane Klanglandschaft live zu kreieren. Das Projekt begann, als sich The Alvaret Ensemble (Greg Haines, Jan & Romke Kleefstra, und Sytze Pruiksma), die man bereits von ihrem bei Denovali erschienenem epischen Debut aus dem Jahr 2012 kennt, sich entschlossen nach Island zu reisen, in dem Anliegen mit den isländischen Musikern Ingi Gardar Erlendsson, Kira Kira, Borgar Magnason und Eiríkur Orri Olafsson eine gemeinsame musikalische Sprache zu finden. Zu der Gruppe stieß ebenfalls das 33 1/3 Collective hinzu, eine Gruppe Videokünstler aus den Niederlanden, die vor Ort Filmmaterial sammelten, das später Ausgangsmaterial der visuellen Seite für die gemeinsamen Live-Performances werden sollte. Einige Monate später, nachdem die Gruppe eine erfolgreiche Woche zusammen Musik gemacht hatte und durch die beeindruckende Landschaft Islands gereist ist, trafen sie sich erneut, aber diesmal auf der Insel Terschelling in den Niederlanden. Im Rahmen des Oerol Festivals spielten sie dort eine Serie von neun ausverkauften Konzerten in einer alten Kirche, von denen jedes einzelne aufgenommen wurde. Jeder Künstler ,kuratierte" einen groben Plan für je einen Konzertabend, der alles sein konnte - von einer selbst angefertigten Zeichnung, die dann musikalisch interpretiert wird, bis zu präziseren Plänen, welche konkret Strukturen und Kombinationen von Musikern anbieten. Nie wurden die Noten oder der Inhalt der Musik selbst vorab besprochen, dies war stattdessen dem Zufall überlassen und durch das aufmerksame gegenseitige Zuhören weiterentwickelt. Im Fokus stand es eine Atmosphäre zu schaffen, in der jeder einzelne Spieler entscheidend ist, aber man zusammen zu einem Ganzen hin arbeitet. Nach zehn sehr intensive Tagen auf der Insel Terschelling, war alles was blieb die Erinnerungen der Zuschauer und, glücklicherweise, eine Festplatte mit zehn Stunden aufgenommener Musik. Nachdem alle die Möglichkeit hatten sich durch die rohen Mixe der Konzertabende zu hören und sie zu kommentieren, wurde das Material in Greg Haines Electricity Works Studio nach Berlin gebracht, wo der lange Prozesse des Auswählens, Editierens, und des Abmischens begann. Endlich, nun fast zwei Jahren nach ihrem ersten Treffen in Reykjavik, ist das Album abgeschlossen und soweit es zu veröffentlichen. Wir hoffen es gefällt. Teilnehmende Musiker (in alphabetischer Reihenfolge): Ingi Gardar Erlendsson (Tuba, Posaune, Thranophone), Greg Haines (Klavier), Kira Kira (Gesang, Electronics), Jan Kleefstra (Stimme, Gedichte), Romke Kleefstra (Gitarre), Borgar Magnason (Kontrabass), Eiríkur Orri Olafsson (Trompete, Electronics), Sytze Pruiksma (Percussion)."

AMBARCHI / O'ROURKE / HAINO Only wanting to melt... LP "Now available as vinyl. Begun as a one-off collaboration in 2009, the trio of Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi has now become a solid working group, refining its craft through a series of annual concerts at Tokyo's legendary SuperDeluxe. Much of their recorded work has focused on their intense, ritualistic take on the rock power trio of electric guitar, bass and drums, with last year's 'now while it's still warm let us pour in all the mystery' (BT09) containing a series of instant compositions of stunning power and concision that demonstrated how familiar and attuned to one another the three have become. Presenting the entire first set of the trio's March 2013 concert at SuperDeluxe (the second set will follow on Black Truffle later this year), 'only wanting to melt beautifully away is it a lack of contentment that stirs affection for those things said to be as of yet unseen', their fifth release, blows the instrumental palette wide open for a single continuous piece focused on acoustic strings, synth, flute and percussion. Featuring one of Haino's most delicate and moving recorded vocal performances, the opening section of the record takes the form of a spare duet between O'Rourke's 12-string acoustic guitar and Haino's kantele (a Finnish variant of the dulcimer), behind which Ambarchi provides a hovering backdrop of wine glass tones. While on previous releases the listener has often sensed that Haino was firmly in the driver's seat, here O'Rourke takes centre stage with an acoustic guitar performance that takes the lyricism of John Abercrombie or Ralph Towner and refracts it through the free improvisation tradition of his mentors Derek Bailey and Henry Kaiser. The atmosphere of meditative, abstracted song is reminiscent of some of Haino's greatest recordings, such as the legendary 'Live In The First Year Of The Heisei' volumes recorded with Kan Mikami. After this stunningly beautiful opening sequence, the performance moves organically through a number of episodes, including a dramatic central passage in which Haino moves to synth and drum machine, crafting a current of raw electricity that unfurls slowly over the gently pulsing foundations of Ambrachi's cymbals and builds to heights of manic intensity. When Haino later turns to wooden flute, Ambarchi answers him with nimble hand-drummed percussion in a passage that calls to mind Don Cherry's liberated combination of free jazz improvisation and non-western musics. The trio's move away from the power trio dynamic bespeaks a risk-taking and questing spirit that refuses to be satisfied with repeating past glories, and yet the organic, immersive flow of this single improvisation attests to the intuitive bond that has formed between them over the last five years. Exuding the signature mystery and emotion of Haino's greatest works, this release is perhaps the strongest statement yet from this acclaimed trio, and holds out a tantalizing promise for everyone hooked on their continuing exploration of 'those things said to be as of yet unseen'. Francis Plagne" [label info] www.blacktrufflerecords.com "The 4th album from this all-star international improv unit. We're fans of Jim O'Rourke (bass) and Black Truffle label head Oren Ambarchi (drums) of course, but we're even bigger fans of dark lord of Japanese psych Keiji Haino (guitar, vocals), which is good - 'cause, as should come as no surprise, he's the dominant personality in this trio. This formation - and its slight variant, with Stephen O'Malley in place of O'Rourke - has become one of the best sources for a reliable Haino-fix. This disc (on cd for now, vinyl upcoming) consists of one 40+ minute track, that begins blissfully, with sparse, Eastern-sounding string pluck and sudden strum, eventually joined by gentle, more-melodic-than-usual singing from Haino. But does it stay that way? Of course not. Haino steps away from the mic, his guitarwork gets more tangled, the drumming more insistent, heavier bass tones begin to resonate, and then at about the 14 minute mark, some (still relatively mild) feedback amp action kicks in as well. A storm is not unleashed, not yet, but dark clouds gather on the horizon, and the air becomes thick with anticipation. Ambarchi keeps up a nervous pulse, steadily skittering away, as Haino and O'Rourke build up drones, high and low. Electronic bleepage and sci-fi FX wander in from somewhere, and we're expecting immanent cataclysm. But nay, the trio pull back, Haino returns to the mic, hushed at first, his vocals backed by Jandekian fractured folk that then gets hectic and no-wavey in recent Fushitsusha tradition. More extreme noisiness briefly erupts at about the half-hour mark, but fades, heralding a humid jungle jam, Haino on flute we think (or recorder?), Ambarchi's beats getting bongo-y. Nice. Side stepping some of our usual expectations, but not nearly all of 'em, this one's another interesting addition to this trio's oeuvre, and we're left wanting more." [Aquarius Records] 2014 €16.50
AMBARCHI, OREN Der Kleine König 7inch Erstes 7”-Vinyl für AMBARCHI, hier wesentlich agiler, kratziger und hochfrequent-sirrender als auf den letzten longplayern, aber soundästhetisch nicht minder schön... nummerierte Auflage von 500 Stck. “ there are different ways to get in contact with the musical ouevre of the sydney-based oren ambarchi, one of the most prolific musicians in contemporary experimental music in the last few years: via his projects sun or phlegm, his collaborations with keith rowe, phil niblock, fennesz or martin ng (to name but a few) or his highly acclaimed solo releases on staalplaat, touch and staubgold. "der kleine könig" is ambarchi's first 7" and certainly a step in a new direction - till now his droney, almost poetic explorations were done solely with guitar and effect units. this is his first release constructed with computer [this, by the way, was also the case with tonschacht 004 by ashtray navigations], and it shows - especially on side b - a yet unknown harsh, piercing but very clear sound. imagine kevin drumm kickin' raster-noton's butt. side a however contains a beautiful, yet distorting dense piece which develops around a fragmented melody of ovalish melancholy.” [press-release] 2002 €6.00
Mort aux Vaches CD OREN AMBARCHI’s Aufnahme für die MAV-Serie ist geprägt durch extrem ruhige und meditative, statisch monophone Gitarrenklänge verschiedener Tonhöhen, die aufgebrochen werden von leisen clicks in digitaler Bearbeitung.. a very meditative digital-guitar-ambient soundtrack, varying & shifting between different pure tones, from OREN AMBARCHI for the fine MAV-series, recorded in Amsterdams VPRO-studios for Staalplaat. “...This incredible piece is a thorough investigation of concepts established on last years SUSPENSION release (Touch, UK) and further explored on the forthcoming live lp TRISTE (Idea, USA). Here Ambarchi employs a kind of tonal pointillism, reminiscent of the work of Morton Feldman, to explore the relativity of various frequencies cocooned between silences. These disembodied notes are incrementally layered taking on new value and meaning as they beat and resonate in sympathy with each other. Often sounds beginning in unison are turned against each other as new tones are brought into play. Never has Oren's melodic sensibility been so evident; "Song Of Separation" documents a crucial stage in the work of this tireless innovator.” [from the press release] www.staalplaat.com 2002 €8.00
  Raga Ooty / Nilgiri Plateau LP "Raga Ooty unearths three previously unreleased works (each titled with reference to the area in south India where his mother was born) from Oren Ambarchi's archive, showcasing the rawer side of his solo work between 2006 and 2011. The side-long Raga Ooty unspools a twisting, skittering thread of gritty guitar harmonics over a bed of buzzing tambura drone, creating the same paradoxical impression of simultaneous stasis and forward propulsion achieved by minimalist masters such as Henry Flynt, to whom this work is dedicated. The Nilgiri Plateau generates an 8 minute wash of gleaming overtones from a 12 string acoustic guitar played with motors, continuing the experiments first made public on the 2007 Stacte Motors LP. The closing Raga Ooty (Slight Return) returns to the distorted guitar harmonic hysterics of the opening piece, this time elaborated over a wash of Ambarchi's signature Leslie cabinet tones, building relentlessly over the course of 12 minutes recorded live in Basel late last year."

Piano und Perkussion im Zusammenhang mit Cello, Saxophon, Akkordion und Klarinette steigern sich wellenförmig höher und lassen die Musik urplötzlich in ruhige Passagen fallen. Es scheint, die Zeit sei stehen geblieben, während die Musiker kleine Punkte und schmale Linien in diesen konstanten Strom eines Stillebens zeichnen. Im Original 1967 als LP veröffentlicht. This CD contains 74 minutes of AMMMUSIC recorded on the 8th and 27th june 1966. Some unreleased material made at the same session is inclused. It „allows the listener to hear prefigurations and continuities of the music which makes for a new and a more enhanced experience than the original album material.“ (from the booklet) Improvisation music with pretty long distances between eruptions of noise streams from electric guitar and transistor radio. Cello and percussion together with piano, saxophon, accordion and clarinet culminate in waves and suddenly remain in quiet parts. It seems the time has stopped, while the musicians are painting small dots and lines in this constant stream of a standstill. Originally released as an LP in 1967.“ [Peter Schlewinski for Drone Records] “Repressed. Monumental debut recording (originally issued by the Elektra recording company in far different times). "The classic first recording from 1966, with Cornelius Cardew, Eddie Prevost, Lou Gare, Keith Rowe and Lawrence Sheaf. One of the first attempts to bring Noise improvisation (radios, scraped guitars, prepared pianos) into popular culture. Essential and historic." [label info] 1989 €15.00

ANAPHORIA Footpaths and Trade Routes LP "ini.itu is releasing the third LP of its catalogue, a 3 tracks album assembled by Kraig Grady under the moniker Anaphoria. • Kraig Grady is a composer and a sound artist. He has been described by David Toop as an Ethnographic Surrealist. Born in California in 1952 ( of Ojibwe Indian ascent ) , now residing in Australia where as a citizen of Anaphoria he is responsible for the Austronesian Outpost of Anaphoria and one of its most prominent organs, the Office of Cultural Liaisons. After mercurial composition studies (a.o with Byong-Kon Kim) and improvising for a while under the inspiration of Stockhausen’s ensemble works, an epiphanic performance of Harry Partch's U. S. Highball that he attended in 1976 led him to unexplored paths. The meeting of Erv Wilson, another pioneer of microtonalism, opened for him the door to alternative tunings with Erv Wilson’s elaborate system of “hexanies” and larger multi-dimensional tonal geometries. This led him to compositions in the just intonation resources of Wilson's combination-product sets and meta-slendro. Kraig Grady also started simultaneously building its own mesotonal / xenharmonic instruments ( metallophones, marimbas, hammered dulcimers and reed organs ) and assembling them into ensembles. His current work makes use of mallet instruments tuned to Wilson's Meta-Slendro, a greatly expanded Slendro-like scale. His compositions include accompaniments for silent films and shadow puppeteer plays. His works have been presented as part of the LA Philharmonic’s American Music Weekend as well as New Music America. The discovery of the island of Anaphoria provided him since the mid 90’s the opportunity to make use of a “visionary geographic” inner space in which the music he wanted to do and share was pre-existent. For extensive information on Anaphoria, please consult the North American Embassy Of Anaphoria Island : www.anaphoria.com • Contrasting with his ensemble compositions, this ini.itu LP presents 2 solo compositions inspired by the traditions of Anaphoria and one meta-track assembled from multiple ensemble takes. With tunes strongly reminiscent of gamelan instruments, the album unfurl elegant and refined tracks of hypnotic and nocturnal beauty, rich with soothing and gloomy overtones. This album fills the room with simultaneously austere, restrained and peacefully complex reverberations, suspending the sense of time. So, where you could file this record ? : next to Lou Harrison, Ben Johnston, LaMonte Young and Harry Partch if you opt for the contemporary/minimalist leanings; or side by side with Nonesuch Explorer south-east asian gamelan records, for obvious reasons. Alternatively, it would not seem wrong to find it a place next to isolationist bands such as Seefeel, Main, Rapoon, or Zoviet France, if you’re responsive to its dark ambient and ritual tinges."

ANDERSSON, PETER Music for Film and Exhibition 3 CD "This is a different experience! It's very concrete and descriptive, and in some cases almost natural, but always with some twists making it much more magic and enigmatic than just the plain sounds alone. Exhibition music can be difficult to describe because they really need to be presented and experienced in their original context. It's about sound design and soundscape composition. The key to understand the exhibition music presented here lies in the order of sounds and their combinations in layers and alterations through time. It makes the listener coming closer to the sounds, to investigate in their meanings and roles within the given frames. It's like being a sound detective. 'Music for Film and Exhibition 3' is, as the name suggests, the third album with film and exhibition music by Peter Andersson. It contains music for various exhibitions from 2011 to 2013 and also some recently found sketches for the 'Tulpa' soundtrack, which was released in their full and final versions on the 'Music for Film and Exhibition I'. Technically 'Music for Film and Exhibition 3' is the first album by Peter Andersson which is mastered according to the so called K-level standard, specifically to K-14. The K-standard will ensure that the highest dynamical range will be preserved in the music. It will benefit the listener because the music will simply sound much greater than a hot or over-compressed album. All one need to do is to give an extra push one the amplifier volume control to match the gain of a hot mastered album." [label info] www.wrotycz.com 2013 €12.00

ANKERSMIT, THOMAS / JIM O'ROURKE split LP Der Niederländer THOMAS ANKERSMIT beeindruckt auf der A-Seite mit einem spannenden mikrotonal vielfältigen Stück, welches auf Computer, EMS Synth & Saxhophon basiert, sehr ruhig anfängt und ungeahnte dronige Brisanz entwickelt, am Ende werden Kaskaden von hochfrequent-dynamischen Klangwellen auf den Hörer geworfen.... auf der B-Seite ein älteres Stück von JIM O’ROURKE von 1992 aus seiner „dronigen“ Phase, ein low-fi-fuzz-drone Leckerbissen, wo verzerrte Gitarrendrones auf Oszillatorenwellen treffen - und wie! Beide Stücke sind so um die 18 Minuten lang... “Finally! Side one features 'Weerzin' by Thomas Ankersmit, composed & recorded in 2004 (Computer, Serge & EMS Synthesizer). Side two composed & recorded by Jim O'Rourke in 1992 (Oscillators & Guitars). Edition of 750 copies.” [label info] “Limited edition split LP from two of the most regularly interrogating modern avantists. Ankersmit’s side is a fuzz-encrusted investigation of non-linear routes through the solo saxophone, with wildly dislocated sounds modulated by computer, serge and EMS synths. O’Rourke’s side is an absolute beauty, a monolithic 1992 recording that matches massive cycles of minimally-repeating fuzz guitar with the brain-bombing chatter of rapid-firing oscillators. Sounds somewhere between Sunroof, Folke Rabe and Faust. Edition of 750 copies, recommended.” [Volcanic Tongue] 2005 €12.00
ANTIKATECHON Woe is the Reward CD Davide Del Col has been working in the specific and uncompromising ritual dark ambient genre since the end of the 90s, this firstly under the moniker of Ornament for a couple of very rare limited editions then as Antikatechon which now represents the highlight of his artistic and stylistic creativity. A first full length album has been published on Silentes Minimal Editions back in 2011, this one provides a very accomplished effort in the realms of hauntingly dark ambient music with a touch of melancholic-spiritual inflected nihilism. Signed on Rage in Eden, "Chrisma Crucifixorum" is an other eloquent and complex release which oscillates between stately gazing drone sequences and original audio treatments, the whole thing surrounded by a sacral aura. 2013 saw the rise of a collaborative effort with the pioneering ethno-noise ambient act Nimh, also from Italy. This musical meeting gave birth to a passionate and typical dark ambient offering. The conceptual-visual background is connected to the visions and powerful painting works of Goya. Davide Del Col presents here his new catchy electronic dark ambient release entitled "Woe is the Reward", welcomed by Rage in Eden Records. A tremendous, entrancing and blasting dark ambient odyssey full of majestic sound sculptures, huge resonances, bleak noises, metallic reverbs and many more. This sonic, soundtracky and "acoustically haunted" ambient symphony will totally enthrall and ravish the listener. Be prepared to this intense sonorous adventure. -- Philippe Blache 2014 €12.00
APOPTOSE Schattenmädchen CD "Schattenmädchen (English:"shadow girl") has always been around, waiting patiently for seven years to step out of the shadows and reveal its face. Apoptose's third album explores dystopian locations: the undergrounds of Japanese megacities, the depths of worldwide data highways, the nightmares of little children. The seven tracks express images of a desolate and dying world, far removed from the solitude of the beloved Northern woods. A world lacking daylight and oxygen. A bleak vision of reality. Over the years, several of these tracks made their way to compilation CDs all over the globe. There they laid dormant to be reunited some day to form this album. In autumn 2006, Apoptose joined forces with Japanese cyberpunk author Kenji Siratori to complete the cycle. On this album, Apoptose works for the first time with spoken word lyrics. Featured languages are Japanese, English, and German. The tracks previously on compilations have been polished/remixed/rerecorded and renamed especially for the unique listening experience of Schattenmädchen. The CD is housed in an embossed 6-panel cardboard cover with an additional booklet. 7 tracks, 62 min." "Einige Jahre sind vergangen, seit Apoptose mit der ambitionierten Ritualmusik-CD "Blutopfer" einen ebenso komplexen wie sperrigen Kommentar zum Osterfest in Calanda veröffentlichten. Die Erwartungen waren über lange Zeit gespannt, und tatsächlich vermag auch "Schattenmädchen" wieder zu überraschen. Zunächst einmal hat man es hier nicht mit einem durchkonzipierten Album zu tun, auch wenn das technosophiosche Artwork von Kenji Siratori dies vermuten lässt. Klanglich kehrt man teilweise zur ersten CD "Nordland" zurück: satte Drones, fast sinfonische Melodiefragmente, dunkel pulsierende Drums, lange verhallende Klänge. "Schattenmädchen" ist tatsächlich die Zusammenstellung der vereinzelten Compilationtracks der letzten Jahre und wird von Tesco im liebevollen debossed Cover, teilweise glanzbeschichtet, präsentiert. Track 1 "Asche" bereitet einen Beitrag zu der Heilpflanzen-Compilation "Infernal Proteus" (2002) wieder auf ("Eichensiechtum") und überzeugt mit geheimnisvollen Stimmfetzen und unheimlichem Glockenspiel. "Violet Silence" (2007) zeigt sich inspiriert von der Cyberspace-Literatur von Siratori und untermalt einen englisch gesprochenen Text über Leben in Simulationswelten. Rhythmen und Melodien fallen hier leichter und chilliger aus. Gelegentlich erinnert das an die Soundtracks von John Carpenter, was an der konsequenten Verwendung von Keyboards liegt. Man ahnt, dass das titelgebende Schattenmädchen etwas mit dem Nachwuchs des Musikers zu tun haben könnte, und tatsächlich erklingt auf Track 3 Amélie/Apoptose mit einem geflüsterten deutschen Text, der wie ein Intro zu Siratoris markanten japanischen Vocals funktioniert. Hier dominieren technoide und kalte Klänge. Wie bei den vorangehenden Stücken fällt auch die ausgedehnte Länge der Stücke auf, was eine Miniaturdranmaturgie innerhalb der Strukturen ermöglicht. "Ba-137m" setzt den genannten Weg fort und mündet erstmals in Industrialnoise-Schleifen, die sich über eine trancige Melodie legen. Das Sample der Zeitansage ("Null") wird auch später noch auftauchen. Im Booklet findet sich ein poetisches Krankentagebuch, das die Textgrundlage von "Karla" (Track 5) bildet, wobei hier die Stimmen jedoch massiv verfremdet werden. Eigenartig und deprimierend, zugleich aber auch eines der schwächeren Stücke auf dieser CD. "2wei Sonne" knüpft thematisch deutlich an die früheren esoterischen Motive an und stammt von der "Solaris Collaboration" (2000). Sinfonische Strings erheben sich hier in kosmische Höhen: eine fasziniernde Miniatur, die in sägenden Power-Electronics-Wällen endet. "Null" war bereits ein Höhepunkt der hauseigenen :Ikonen:-Compilation "...in the Crystal Cage" (2004), und macht sich auch hier sehr gut, wobei der Mix leicht verändert erscheint. Hier taucht auch das Zeitanasage-Sample wieder auf. Mit fast majestätischen Harmonien wird diese Zusamemnstellung beschlossen. Wer Apoptose bereits für einen eigenen, durchaus erlebnisreichen Zugang zum Ambientgenre schätzte, wird an dieser Zusammenstellung ohnehin seine Freude haben. Mit einem homogenen Konzeptalbum hat man es leider nicht zu tun, doch die hohe Qualität der einzelnen Beiträge und die sorgsame Covergestaltung garantieren einen sicheren Tip!" [Ikonen] 2007 €14.50
Nordland CD "Time to travel north again: Apoptose's long out of print first album "Nordland" is back - even more beautiful than before. On its release in the year 2000 Nordland instantly became a cult record for lovers of orchestral ritualistic soundsculptures. Like ancient stone circles on barren landscapes the solemn music reminds of an age when the eternal cycle of growth and decay ruled human life. Finally this ambient classic is available on CD again. The album was carefully remastered to ensure that favourite tracks like "Abschied von der Sonne", "Nordlicht" or "Nidstang" sound better than ever. The bonus track "Svartisen" originating from same era as the Nordland recordings enhances the line-up. So even those who know Nordland for ages will discover some new facets of this gem. Additionally the designers revisited the whole artwork and created something completely new to compliment the timeless music. The CD is housed in a multiple-panel fold-out cover featuring a separate cardboard CD-sleeve." [label info] www.tesco-germany.com 2011 €14.00
Ana Liil CD "Ana Liil doesn't want to be your friend – she lives in an entirely separate world. Maybe at night you see her shape behind a grimy window in the neighbourhood, or you hear her singing from afar. But you will never get closer to her. “I don't know who she is,” Apoptose says. “One day she just emerged. Like a thought that sounds logic in your dreams but completely strange in daylight.” Apoptose’s “ana liil” plays with your expectations. This album spins within close range of those dark ambient realms that Apoptose became known for since the early 2000s. Songs like “meer der ruhe” or “schnee” still bear this signature. But at the same time they show a new quality of songwriting. Both feature the frail singing of a girl who keeps the dusty shadows at bay . On “forget your face”, “adrenalin” or “ich verbrenne” Apoptose replaces the reverb charged tracks by songs full of voices and haunting melodies. But beware: all is not as it seems. The album will be available on CD, vinyl+CD and download. The CD is housed in a stylish spot varnished six-panel cardboard pack including a twelve-pages booklet and a separate CD-sleeve. The LP+CD version comes in an altered design with copper foil blocking and printed inner sleeve. Don't miss!" [label info] www.tesco-germany.com "Wer ist ANA LIIL? "Sie will nicht mit Dir befreundet sein – sie lebt in ihrer ganz eigenen Welt." So steht es in der kurzen Beschreibung zum neuen APOPTOSE-Album. Ich könnte mir gut vorstellen, dass ANA sich diese Eigenschaft mit RÜDIGER, dem Mann hinter APOPTOSE teilt. Wohltuend zurückhaltend präsentiert sich der Musiker, den wir seit einiger Zeit begleiten. Rund vier Jahre nach "Bannwald" (Besprechung und Interview) legt er, ganz unaufgeregt, im Mai mit "Ana Liil" auf TESCO ein neues Album vor; wir durften es vorab schon hören. Trotz vieler Änderungen in den vergangenen Jahren – von den rituelleren Alben "Nordland" (2000) und "Blutopfer" (2002) über das industrielle "Schattenmädchen" (2007) und den Post Punk-Ausflug "Warrior Creed" (2008) wieder zurück in waldigere Gefilde auf "Bannwald" (2010) – blieb ein gewisser APOPTOSE-Sound immer erkennbar. Dies gilt auch für "Ana Liil", hier finden sich erneut die leicht orgeligen, langgezogenen Synthietöne. Ansonsten hat sich allerdings eine ganze Menge getan. Zum Beispiel arbeitet RÜDIGER auf einigen Songs mit Gesang, die Trommeln von früher liegen wohl endgültig im Keller, und die Musik mit eingängigen, starken Melodien könnte als minimaler Synthiewave durchgehen. Schon "Meer Der Ruhe" (01) birgt die erste Überraschung: Zu einer ruhigen, traurigen Synthiemelodie mit neoklassischer Anmutung singt eine Kinderstimme, anrührend und auf Deutsch. Gemeinsam mit dem angesprochenen, speziellen Klang ergibt sich etwas Märchenhaftes – wir reden allerdings von den düsteren, morbiden Märchen, in denen es um Geister, Tote und andere Dimensionen geht. So kommt der Song trotz der Kinderstimme sehr gut am Kitsch vorbei. In "Ich Verbrenne" (02) wandelt sich die Sängerin vom Mädchen zur Frau. Die weiterhin ruhige Synthie-Ambientmusik mit dezentem Rhythmus im Hintergrund erinnert mich – hier und an anderen Stellen – an elektronische Musik der 1980er/90er, zum Beispiel an die frühen WOLFSHEIM. Der Titeltrack (03) schlägt zum ersten Mal wirklich düstere Töne an: dronige E-Gitarre, Percussion und englische, gesampelte Vocals. KRAFTWERK oder deren aktuelle Version ATOM™ scheinen in "Fernsehen" (04) zu grüßen (und auch das nicht zum letzten Mal): sanfte, jetzt sehr modern wirkende Elektromusik mit TV-ähnlicher Ansagerstimme ("Fernsehen macht dumm ..."). Die moderne, computerisierte Anmutung bleibt für die nächsten beiden Tracks bestehen: "Adrenalin" (05) mit mächtigem BACH-Chor im Hintergrund und "I Say Seven" (06) mit einer dronigen, mächtigen Melodie, analogem Schlagzeug, Synthielayern und der technisierten Frauenstimme, welche Zahlen präsentiert – mein Favorit. "Hiding" (07) ist eines von zwei Stücken, bei denen mir "Twin Peaks"-Lieder von JULEE CRUISE in den Sinn kommen (mit mehr Drive und Rhythmus), auch die Kinderstimme im Abschlussstück "Schnee" (09) bringt mich dorthin zurück. Dazwischen liegt mit "Forget Your Face" (08) ein Track, bei dem ich kurz – ich hoffe, RÜDIGER verzeiht mir das – an die PET SHOP BOYS denken musste. Extrem packende Ambientmusik, die inhaltlich durchaus an frühere Alben von APOPTOSE anknüpft, vor allem "Schattenmädchen" und "Bannwald". Auch Kinderlieder und Gesang gab es vor allem schon auf letzterem. Musikalisch allerdings geht "Ana Liil" in eine andere Richtung. Die Nähe zur Natur ist nicht mehr so deutlich hörbar, die starke rituelle Komponente fehlt, die Trommeln spielen überhaupt keine Rolle mehr. Das aktuelle Werk ist in seiner fast ausschließlich elektronischen Anlage durchgängiger, die Stücke sind sich ähnlicher und häufig mit Gesangsstimmen versehen. Nach und nach umspinnt die Hauptdarstellerin den Hörer mit Einsamkeit und Verlorenheit – und trägt ihn davon. Das Album erscheint als CD, LP und als Download und kommt laut Beschreibung von TESCO mit aufwändiger Verpackung..." [Michael We./NONPOP] 2014 €14.50

  Blutopfer LP "Blutopfer is back - for the first time on vinyl! In 2017 we celebrate the long overdue return of Apoptose's second album which originally surfaced in 2002. In the 15 years since its release, Blutopfer has become a classic album of the industrial/ritual-music genre. It combines raw ambient electronics with drumming footage of the Easter processions in the village of Calanda in Aragón, Spain. This album is still unique in its attitude and effect. A "must have" that has been unavailable for quite a while. Now, the Blutopfer LP edition brings back all the emotions and even more. The sound was remastered with great care to wake the spirits hidden in the tremendous drums. The LP comes in new artwork with liner notes by both industrial music legend Jordi Valls of Vagina Dentata Organ and Apoptose. So even fans who know the album by heart will be able to discover new aural and visual facets. While the original CD was made of purple plastic to mimic a colour vinyl LP, here is the real thing: the LP is pressed on drummer robe violet vinyl in an edition of 300 copies. Included is a free download code for a special 8-track digital version. It features a bonus track, recorded in 2016 with original source material that hadn't been used before." www.tesco-germany.com 2017 €21.50
ARASTOO Three LP Dichte Drones, metallische Sounds, sehr klar & minimal, einzelnen Klängen und Tönen wird Raum und Zeit gegeben zum ausklingen, was sehr viele Details aufscheinen lässt... man ist z.B. an BERTOIA erinnert. Sehr schöne LP eines neuen US-Projekts ! Tip ! "Arastoo is arastoo darakhshan, and is another in the brotherhood of the drone, deftly exploring a warm and wonderful drone drenched ambience. three is a series of deep cavernous drones, warm and rich, not so much rumbling and sort of washing over you like the sun drenched surf. but this is not sunny, this is like a sky devoid of sun, a blanket of rich blackness, permanent nighttime. occasionally punctuated by haunting reverbed tones, presumably the sound of struck metal. creepy buzzing alien melodies drift by like a broken trumpet or some sort of shortwave guitar. the heart of the record is a massive, slow building ultra dense drone, layers of low-end get thicker and thicker, while additional layers are added slowly and subtly, each of those new layers, slightly higher in pitch, the result is a rich swirl of strange overtones and hunting ghostlike melodies. gorgeous. housed in an amazing gloss black on matte black sleeve.” [Aquarius Records] 2006 €12.50
ARASTOO & AEMAE Ostrakon LP "Two side-long ice sculptures built on piano and processing, the piano coming strictly from Arastoo Darakhshan, while both add their effects but Brandon Nickell as Aemae delivers digital doctoring as his primary outlet. The title track is a wonderful splintering of sound, with glacier cracking in on the stark black and white keys. Aemae’s timing with noisier nuance is excellent on this, and he has at least one treatment like a frozen train going off the tracks! Here the sum decimates the parts, Arastoo’s delicate hesitance almost dances around a ghost of Clara Rockmore. A very open piece with rays of mourning and crystal shards of electronics, it captures that ever-important balance of order and chaos. If the first piece is Nickell plating Darakhshan, then perhaps the second is a reverse, with a layer of Aemae cast out and the piano imposed on top? Just a guess, maybe I’m too concerned without tallying yin and yang. The first piece really is a stunner with a fascinating name that wiki shows as the derivation for ostracism. Yeah, this is outsider music but I suspect readily acceptable to many ears, of course we too at KFJC have been happily exiled beneath main street for decades of decadence. Limited release on Nickell’s own label." [Thurston Hunger / KFJC] "A long in the works collaboration from two aQ favorites, Aemae and Arastoo. We've listed both Aemae releases, but Arastoo has been a bit more elusive, with tons of super limited vinyl and cd-r releases, of which we've only ever managed to review 3. Well, the two have come together, to produce this, the first in a new salvo of Bay Area sound art from Aemae, aka Brandon Nickell's Isounderscore label. And a pretty fantastic start. Arastoo plays the piano, and then the two shape and mold the piano into two side long pieces, both quite impressive. The A side is mostly straight piano all the way through, some gorgeous fluid playing, some stunning arrangements, but the two subtly shape and twist throughout, adding mysterious little music box flourishes, sudden squalls of super high end skree, but those moments are actually quite controlled, the sounds sculpted onto dog whistle melodies, and haunting upper register textures. The subtle production tweaks really only augment, creating complimentary sounds, or add bits of ambience, allowing the piano to drift and sway and unfurl its melody, seemingly oblivious to what's going on around it. The B side however, finds the sound of the piano obliterated, transformed completely into long shimmering streaks of layered metallic reverberation, a bit industrial sounding, layers of constantly shifting whir and rumble and hiss and roar, like a choppy sonic sea, building to a buzzing crescendo before settling back down into a tranquil sea of black ambience, as the piano returns, unfurling gentle, yet ominous minor key melodies, all very creepy and cinematic, but also quite lovely. LIMITED TO 320 COPIES. Super striking silkscreened covers, with original artwork by Arastoo." [Aquarius Records] www.isounderscore.com 2008 €14.50
ARC 13th mCDR ARC ist die 3köpfige “Band” von AIDAN BAKER, der ja schon mit einigen fantastischen solo-releases auf sich aufmerksam machte.

Schon die Nr. 10 in der schönen low-priced Serie das Pariser Label (ex Harmonies) ! “ Arc is a Canadian trio comprised of Aidan Baler, his brother Richard and Christopher Kukiel. It was formed spontaneously in 1999. Arc's music is based on drones and melodic loops created by Aidan's heavily-treated guitar. Add Richard and Chrisopher's tribalish rhtyhms made with various percussive instruments and you get the picture. When we, at taâlem, first heard Arc, we couldn't help thinking of Life Garden and Voice of Eye, those great US tribal ambient bands from the 90's. But Arc is no copycat !” [label info] http://taalem.free.fr/ 2003 €5.00
ARCANA Raspail CD "Die CD kommt in einem hochwertigen Artwork, das sowohl ein 8-seitiges Leporello, als auch ein 12-seitiges Booklet enthält! Arcana sind seit Jahren über alle Grenzen hinweg stilprägend und eines der großen Aushängeschilde der weltweiten Gothic Wave Szene. Ihre Musik umfasst eine einzigartige, kraftvolle und verzauberte Anmutung, der sich kaum jemand entziehen kann. Mit ihrem neuen Werk Raspail schlagen Arcana nun das nächste Kapitel ihrer einzigartigen Karriere auf und verschmelzen die filigrane Romantik ihrer früheren Werke, um ihr erfolgreiches Album Inner Pale Sun, mit bahnbrechendem Gothicwave der Neuzeit. Raspail begeistert durch die außergewöhnliche Mischung aus orchestralen, mächtigen Soundcollagen, natürlich instrumentierten Arrangements, und den himmlisch klaren Stimmen des Baritons Peter Bjärgö und der Sopranistin Ann-Mari Thim, die das Album in einen mystischen Klangzauber verwandeln der alles bisherige in den Schatten stellt. Die inzwischen sechste Veröffentlichung des schwedische Quintetts ist ein magisch, geniales Glanzstück, getragen von zarten Pianotupfern und intensiven Klangwelten aus Streichern und Hörnern. Klassisch, melodramatisch und kaum zu überbieten!" [label info] "Arcana has turned another page in the book and the next chapter will be a meeting between the old and the new. As before, we hear the many instruments that vary the music, but this time the vocals parts have taken more room. The medieval sound from Dark age of Reason and Cantar de Procella is there, the majestic sound from... The Last Embrace appear along with the serene notes from Inner Pale Sun and the oriental instruments from Le Serpent Rouge. Blend this with the new sound once again created by Peter Bjärgö, and you will have Raspail, the next chapter in the book of Arcana." [label info] www.kalinkaland.de 2008 €14.50
ARCANE DEVICE Devices 1987-2007 do-CD Texturen aus Sirenen-Klängen und Sinuston-Feedbacks, repetitive Patterns aus Extrem-Frequenzen, Effektgerät-Übersteuerungen bilden seltsame Klangkegel aus, elektronische Cut-Ups formen Kaskaden aus befremdlicher Rhythmik. Und alles basiert nur auf einer Soundquelle: Feeback! Auf dieser russischen Kollektion des emsigen MONOCHROME VISION-Labels findet sich älteres rares Material von längst vergessenen Compilations, aber auch neue Stücke von 2007, welche nahtlos an die Vergangenheit anknüpfen, insgesamt aber weniger noisig & offensiv klingen. Very special stuff! "Anthology of rare and previously unreleased tracks by Arcane Device, recorded within the 20 years. It is divided into two parts. The first one consists of tracks from compilations issued by Subterranean Records, Tragic Figures, SFCR Tapes, and Generations Unlimited, but also unreleased material remastered and/or remixed in 2007. The second one is subtitled as "Feedback symphony" and based on various recordings, presented in four movements and finished in 2007. One more chance to approve the exceptional skills and compositional/ technical talent of David Myers who can control the electrons by will, creating fantastic soundscapes. Arcane Device is the unique project of american graphic designer and musician David Myers, active between 1987 and 1995. His creative output is going beyond any categorization, because it’s possible to re-arrange and demonstrate such many styles of modern music with only one thing that is feedback. This effect usually happens when you shortcut the input and output of any electric device. It’s
