  • Muslimgauze : Sadaam's Children - LP (Staalplaat, 2020)

  • In typical Muslimgauze style, the newly unearthed Sadaam’s Children is as idiosyncratic as it is aggressively straight-forward. While his 1997 album Narcotic looms large in the LP’s title, having been lifted almost directly from the track listing, crystal clear strings are nowhere to be found here. Interminable and implacably archaic grooves emit from the percussive drive of "Believers of the Blind Sheikh" and the herculean length of "Gulf Between Us", showcasing Muslimgauze at his most chilled-out, while "Tikrit Brotherhood Quartet" mulls on a sampled sitar drone and hand percussion across its runtime. Shimmering mirages abound; such is the nature of Bryn Jones’ labyrinth

  • KTL : VII - LP (Editions Mego, 2020)

  • A new timley studio album from the duo of Peter Rehberg and Stephen O’Malley. Recorded and mixed during an unexpected extended stay in Berlin when the borders of the world suddenly closed. The claustrophobic urgency of this scenario is seared into the colossal vibrations set into this vinyl release. Unlike many of their releases this is a studio record made unto itself as opposed to the many soundtracks they have made for theatre works and the like. It also stands as one of their most fully realised releases to date

  • Iannis Xenakis : GRM Works 1957-1962 - LP (Recollection GRM, 2020)

  • Even though Iannis Xenakis never made "musique concrète" in the sense given by Pierre Schaeffer, the GRM was a locus for experimenting with his ideas about sound and sound structures. The works, composed between 1958 and 1962, show a boldness as advanced as in his orchestral approach / The relationship between Xenakis and Schaeffer was often tense. It nevertheless entailed mutual recognition and respect towards each other's musical approach. Moreover, "Bohor" is dedicated to Schaeffer, as evidenced by the letter Xenakis sent him on October 8th, 1968: "Dear Pierre, I have decided to dedicate Bohor to you, out of friendship and gratitude for your contribution to music. I hope you are pleased with this." Schaeffer found the piece disproportionate in terms of intensity but was indeed pleased by the dedication / The four pieces presented here, all produced at the GRM, undoubtedly demonstrate the experimental intent and the strictly "physical" character of Xenakis' music, in that it provides the audience with a listening experience of a rare intensity

  • Gregorio Paniagua : Batiscafo - LP (Munster, 2020)

  • Immersed in an age of re-releases and the pursuit of rarities, hidden gems and marvels, record labels are constantly rediscovering musical jewels, which previously only collectors have had the chance to own. Batiscafo is one of these elusive treasures. First released in 1980 on the label Hispavox, the album disappeared after a short run and no further editions in any format have been available until now, in spite of the huge level of interest shown by fans to get their hands on a vinyl record in mint condition by this outstanding musical oddity made in Spain / Gregorio Paniagua is a classically trained musician and scholar of music with an extensive and fruitful history of researching, recording and rediscovering ancient music. In 1980, Paniagua embarked on a solo project, moving from the classical to the pop department at Hispavox. He shut himself off from the world every night for a whole month to record Batiscafo. Assisted solely by a sound technician at the controls of the latest mixing desk, his instruments and brilliant inventiveness, he managed to create this gem, a record that seeks to emulate Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells (1973) and which vanished all too soon, becoming the Holy Grail of Spanish experimental music / Batiscafo anticipated a wave of avant-garde Spanish music in the '80s with key figures such as Suso Sáiz, Pep Llopis, Ishinoana, or Finis Africae, who are now being rediscovered and admired outside Spain. It is a highly original and imaginative record that continues to surprise listeners 40 years on, with its bold combination of early electronic music, classicism, experimentation and psychedelia. It's a masterpiece that endures the test of time

  • Black Truffle is pleased to announce Ashioto, the first international solo release from Japanese drummer-percussionist-composer Tatsuhisa Yamamoto. Active for over a decade, Yamamoto has performed and recorded extensively with artists such as Jim O’Rourke, Eiko Ishibashi and Akira Sakata, as well as participating in innumerable improvised and ad hoc groups / Ashioto presents two wide-ranging pieces that combine Yamamoto’s percussion work with piano, field recordings, electronics, and contributions from guest musicians Daisuke Fujiwara and Eiko Ishibashi / Though grounded in instrumental performance, Ashioto is very much a studio construction, making inventive use of electro-acoustic principles in its editing and mixing. Together with its sister Ashiato – a different take on the same "script" released simultaneously on Japanese label Newhere – Ashioto demonstrates to an international audience for the first time the true breadth and ambition of Yamamoto’s work

  • Black vinyl housed in hard cardboard folder with original artworks by Timothy O'Donnell and printed inner sleeve with the full lyrics / We are very excited to bring you a new IFP release – the first vinyl edition of Peter Ulrich's debut solo album "Pathways And Dawns". Widely known for his past work as drummer/percussionist with legendary Dead Can Dance and contributor to 4AD's This Mortal Coil, Ulrich emerges here as a writer of hauntingly beautiful melodies and deeply poetic lyrics. "Pathways And Dawns" is packed with driving rhythms and meditative ritual patterns of percussion. With some inspired guitar-work, arrangement, and production from DCD mastermind Brendan Perry, the result is a pure delight... / The album was recorded in two parts, the first in England in 1990, and the second after a long time break in 1996-97, by Brendan Perry at DCD's Quivvy Church studio in Ireland. The album was released on CD in 1999 on the US label Projekt and was dubbed by critics as "the album the Beatles might have made had the group signed with 4AD instead of Capitol" and "a wonderful collection of songs that, while in the 4AD school, shimmers with an inner lightness that makes it very different ". This absolute masterpiece of spiritual music, so badly wanted on vinyl for so long, is available now. Mastered from Original master takes by Martin Bowes (Attrition)

Quite unusual for the band dreamy ambient, almost spa-relaxed soft harmonies, bland tribal rhythms, chimes, and birdsong but still with dark mysterious and inimitable Coil musick's charm.

Gloss finish / Spencer Williams and Ryan Gracey's 2nd full length LP as Drape on Infraction. Analog orchestras and guitar notes that expand for minutes on end. The first two tracks on Let There Water Air are awash in a guitar and cello haze, rising up on "new mountains" like the morning sun cresting over the horizon. When it gets quiet, as in with the opening of 'Interiors', it is a stark-like Cage piano piece with the sounds of the piano repair shop these tracks were recorded in captured like bits of dust. The buzzing of a not too faraway guitar still makes it's presence known, but it is the slooow melody of textural piano that is the centerpiece here. Where Drape in the past has blended noise AND ambience, here the noise is weighted, perforated and the light is allowed to filter through

The rest of the album is definitely a detour for Chalk, as he presents a series of sad, sodden snippets composed on guitar, koto, synth, piano, and field recordings. Unlike so many who attempts an album of gossamer, minimalist sounds, Chalk seeks the same chromatic hues through his sources. It's the same melancholy which runs through his impressionist drones that can be found in an ellipsis for untreated acoustic guitar or a melody upon cosmic-minded synth or an atypical strum upon his koto. That makes for quite a remarkable album for Mr. Chalk, once again (Aquarius)

  • Andrew Chalk : Circle of Days 1 - MC (Faraway Press, 2019)

  • Featuring Daisuke Suzuki / The music on this tape is either beautiful and enigmatic. Chalk blurs and bends single notes and spare clusters from a piano, wavering between lyrical statements and overtone-rich abstraction. He slows and spaces the rich organ-type tones so that the piece constantly refreshes itself, folding its endings into its beginnings and vice versa. The dynamics might be the opposite of traditional noise and drone pieces, but the effect is strangely similar – albeit heightened and more nuanced. The mind empties, your biorhythms adapt to Chalk’s excruciatingly slow pace, and you become aware only of where individual sounds begin and end / This is sculptural, present music, for which background details ultimately seem superfluous, and which makes the past as well as the future feel entirely open

Peaks considers summits as being both above and below, reframing the idea of apex from a more intimate perspective.

  • Bellows : Undercurrent - LP (Black Truffle, 2020)

  • Black Truffle are pleased to announce Undercurrent, the new LP from the long-running Milanese duo of Giuseppe Ielasi and Nicola Ratti. Following on from high-profile releases on Boomkat Editions and Shelter Press in the last few years, the eight untitled pieces making up Undercurrent continue the pair’s hypnotic and disorientating practice of improvisation based on tape loops. Often sitting halfway between electro-acoustic technique and beat-based production, the music of Bellows obliquely recalls aspects of hip-hop, dub, and techno while skewing their rhythmic foundations. While consistent with the distinctive language the duo have developed over the last decade, Undercurrent moves away from the explicit references made to club music in their recent releases / It presents a suite of pieces that are markedly more minimal, at times reminiscent in their haunted introspection of the legendary Tolerance records on Vanity Records. The pieces here often dwell for minutes at a time on single repeating tones, reverberating like distant bells in desolate landscapes of looped tape hiss. Where previous releases were primarily based on samples, Undercurrent uses recordings of the duo playing various instruments (guitar, drums, synthesizer) cut into tape loops and then used as the bases for song-length tracks, each of which establishes a central repeating motif while also opening up on close listening to reveal multitudes of improvised detail and subtle shifts in tone, texture, and tempo / Beginning with the mournful sliding tones and obscured fragments of field recordings on the opening track, the LP moves from lush synth pads to super-minimal pings and haunted drone. On "6" and "7", spacious, hanging guitar figures give the music an elegiac quality recalling the work of Dean Roberts and Ielasi’s own earlier guitar-based music (such as the classic Gesine, released on Häpna in 2005). The record subtly builds to its final track, which works the barest of elements – a slowed-tone loop of steel drums, a distant whistle, beeping electronics – into a piece somehow imbued with a quiet grandeur, a fitting conclusion to a record that, like all of the duo's work, is both sonically exploratory and immediately accessible

The 2017 reissue of his lauded debut, Music For Nine Post Cards, along with a slow building cult internet following has helped ignite a renaissance in his acclaimed body of work, much of which has never been released outside of Japan. Known for his sound design and environmental music, Yoshimura worked on a number of commissions following the 1982 release of Music For Nine Post Cards, including works for museums, galleries, public spaces, TV shows, video art, fashion shows, and even a cosmetics company / Originally released in 1986, GREEN is one of Hiroshi Yoshimura’s most well-loved recordings and a favorite of the artist himself. Recorded over the winter of 1985-86 at Yoshimura’s home studio, the compositions unfold at an unhurried pace, a stark contrast to the busy city life of Tokyo. As Yoshimura explained in the original liner notes, the album title in the context of this body of work is not meant to be seen as a color, but is rather used to convey “the comfortable scenery of the natural cycle known as GREEN”—which perfectly encapsulates the soothing and warm sounds contained on the album, although it was created utilizing Yamaha FM synthesizers, known for their crisp digital tones.

Originally from 1981 and now re-issued for the first time on black vinyl / Cherry Red generously gave Morgan Fisher musical carte-blanche by offering to distribute a label of his own so, like his studio, he called his label Pipe. For the first album he decided to record an album of ambient music. Rather than using synths, Morgan decided to invite soprano sax supremo Lol Coxhill to supply some raw material which he then processed in various ways. The opening track is based on Lol’s beautiful performance of Handel’s Largo, recycled through tape delays, VCS3 filters and octave shifts / The result (in Morgan's opinion) is somewhat like a Mexican funeral march. Other tracks transform the sound of the sax sound into bells (!) and lush orchestral soundscapes. The 20-minute title track is based on the melody of the short closing track (which Lol sang, accompanied by church bells!). Morgan recorded phrases from the melody using piano, guitar, bass and voice. He snipped off the beginning of each note (about 5mm of tape) making the sounds less recognisable, then looped each phrase and recorded long stretches of the loops onto individual tracks of his 8-track TEAC. Finally he created this piece in real time by fading tracks in and out through long tape delays. This pioneering work took weeks of intense experimenting and has been cited as an influence by several top Japanese artists such as Haruomi Hosono of YMO

Gustaf Dickssons' fascination for christianity/religious assemblies shines through once again, the title Livets Ord ("The word of life") derived from the Swedish free church/sect with the same name that was based in Uppsala between 1983-2013 and casting a pastoral shadow over the ambient music of the album. While dabbling with a long tradition of kosmische musik and private-pressed new age wonders, Blods now patented sound of a Björn Isfält-gone-sour still lingers throughout the entire recording.

  • Housed in a full-colour sleeve with deluxe PVC bag and a 28-page booklet containing artist’s notes, previously unpublished photos, and details from the original graphic score for ManMo / First time vinyl issue of key works from the Belgian artist-musician Moniek Darge / Following a deep-excavation of the Logos archives London’s Horn of Plenty presents "Bratschebraut" - four works utilising prepared violin, electronics, tapes, and voice. These recordings are from the same era as Moniek’s classic "Sounds of Sacred Places" LP. "Bratschebraut" extends the story of Moniek's work during this period: playful, intimate, raw, and quite unique. Although they were recorded across a seven year period and were not intended to sit together, the music on "Bratschebraut", seen retrospectively, captures a pivotal era in Moniek’s artistic development. A period that saw her challenge, destroy, then create anew. "Bratschebraut" both a significant addition to Moniek’s catalogue and an essential historical document

  • Handmade diorama box / Just a few months after fortuitously meeting Dean Brown in London’s Low Company I am delighted to be releasing this Little Skull 7". For a few years I was listening to Little Skull LP’s unaware that Dean’s own brand of NZ underground music was in fact being recorded a short distance from my London home. Furthermore, Dean’s intricate homemade sleeves were crafted in London, shipped to Italy, then back to London where I was buying them / This release reduces the air miles while expanding the Little Skull story. Two tracks, two different moods. It’s as if some unknown event takes place as you flip the record. The music of Little Skull evolved from the NZ underground but extends way beyond. Points of reference include Bruce Langhorne’s "The Hired Hand", AMMMusic, Egisto Macchi’s "Il Deserto", Anner Bylsma, and Elodie. – Nick Hamilton / Horn of Plenty

  • Sentuhlà is one of the many aliases of musical jack of all trades José Guerrero, a long standing figure in the already rich underground scene of Valencia. In this solo excursion he explores the vast possibilities of mechanical repetition, the machine funk of dirtbag rhythms and proper boogie DIY synth music, sculpting a syncopated sound that is both modern and atavistic. Coming from a deep knowledge and ability to communicate very diverse sounds, slow jams unfold into dance music for clear eyed lounge lizards for whom sleaze comes not dizzy but focused. Whitened african rhythms beat up no wave disco pleasure points, managing the hard task of being very cool and nonchalant, but also hot and dedicated / This closed door nightclub music will appeal to fans of the new developments in dance music that put Cabaret Voltaire, impLOG or Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou into XXI Century basements. The record comes also with a killer remix by Tolouse Low Trax, probably our favourite producer in modern rhythmic music

A deep drone trance/meditation edit that blew Robin´s own mind (and also ours!) / A magic balance between percussion and electronics, creating mind-bending tapestries of minimalistic patterns and quasi-melodic drones fused with occasional doses of well-placed white noise. An approach much in debt to his 12 year stint with *zoviet-france*. It paints a gossamer diaphanous drifting veil of mood over the top / Other than some moody loops and psychoacoustic dimensions, it sounds authentic - hardly a trace of crude electronics or sampling. The drumming - in soft tones rather than hard hitting ones - does nothing to intrude on the passive mood. The overall atmosphere does not really change throughout the recording making it a cool, pacifying atmosphere while having the madcap tempo which would be very easy to dance to

The fact is, these mysterious magnetic tapes, which capture the voices of the dead, and were recorded by the baltic scientist Konstantin Raudive, are not a fiction but a reality (we are not here to judge their scientific objectivity). These tapes, as rare as Lovecraft's Necronomicon, are now in our archives / Dr Konstantin Raudive, a student of Carl Jung, was a Latvian psychologist who taught at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, before devoting the last ten years of his life to electronic voice phenomenon (EVP).He published in his book Breakthrough in 1971. His early collaborator F. Jurgenson, whom he met by the very beginning of 1965, awakened Dr. K.Raudive's interest in EVP research. Raudive spent endless hours for the thorough study of Jurgenson's books ("Voices from Space", 1964 and "Radio-Link with the Dead", 1967). From an overwhelming database (ranging about 72000 samples!), Raudive's mother seems to be statistically the most frequently reported contact personality.

While it may appear an anachronism in his catalog, fans of Bill Laswell will find City of Light an extension of ideas he has explored throughout his career. His strong interest in Eastern music and religion resulted in this 1997 collaboration with Janet Rienstra. Part sacred, spoken word, part meditative soundscape, City of Light takes as its inspiration the holy region of Banaras, India. Said to belong to Shiva, Banaras also contains the Ganges river: a place sought by Hindus for their cremation.  Surrounding the texts is some of the most compelling music this genre has produced featuring Trilok Gurtu on tablas, Coil (Peter Christopherson + John Balance) on electronic, Tetsu Inoue at sound collages and Lori Carson at vocals

When I played it the first time in my cassette-deck I immediately felt pure euphory, trembling excitement and fascination: the clattering rhythm produced by ZX spectrum computer processed by Ibanez analogue delay, the muddy radio- and TV-voices, sombre ambient loops and uneasy feedbacks...'Funeral Souvenir' belongs to the most intense and dramatic releases by Miguel A. Ruiz and must be considered as one of the most influencial proto-industrial-releases from Spain. The album is very direct, radical! 'Schlamm' and 'Doppler Maxima' clearly show the listener where the hunt begins: an apocalyptic information-overdose of radiovoices from reporters and politicians, shredded by machinistic rotations.

The album is a string of semi constant metamorphosis. A gesture appears, is elaborated upon—or is halted and replaced by a new gesture. Multi Natural has multi focal points, quite dissimilar to Christina’s other works that tend to have a more linear path / Within this album lives a composer who is not afraid to let the content take over. In this, obviously composed work, there is still a large space for all those sounds to act freely. It is almost like Christina is waiting for the music to compose itself. This technique speaks of respect and trust for the listener, since it gives thelistener freedom to personally connect the lines / When you put the needle on this record, everything turns to stone. The music flows and nurtures. Sounds that come from various realities—molded into a mutual understanding. With each spin, new events catch the ears. Like looking at alandscape, perceiving new details close and far with every gaze. When Christina warps both time and space for you, it comes to you as a gift

Shutting Down Here is a piece shaped like an universe, a heterogeneous world in which collides the multiple musical facets of Jim O'Rourke: instrumental writing, field recordings, electronic textures and cybernetic becomings, dynamic spaces, harmonic spaces, silent spans . This variety of approach, strangely, does not in any way weaken the coherence of the whole and this is the talent of Jim O'Rourke, a talent, properly speaking, of composition, where all the sound elements compete and participate to stakes that exceed them and of a common destiny, that is to say of an apparition

  • Biosphere : Dropsonde - 3xLP (Biophon, 2020)

  • Many talk about 2006’s Dropsonde as Biosphere’s jazz album. There is certainly something to this - while Geir Jenssen’s project has long been a byword for ambient music of rare beauty, some of the tracks on Dropsonde certainly have a jazz inflicted pulse to them / However, these new influences do not indicate a complete shift away from Biosphere’s previous output. Rather, cuts like "Birds Fly By Flapping Their Wings" instead subsume looped grooves into the same atmosphere of wintry beauty that one detects on Biosphere classics such as Substrata. It’s a soundworld that brings to mind an even more cerebral take on the micro-house style of Jan Jelinek, an effect which is only heightened by the fact that such tracks are couched amid a good few numbers that foreground Jenssen’s trademark foggy atmospheres / This new edition of Dropsonde, reissued by Biosphere’s own Biophon label, expands on the record’s original track listing with the addition of seven previously-unreleased numbers. It’s a wonder that Jenssen didn’t include offerings like "In The Shape Of A Flute" into Dropsonde’s original run, so seamlessly do their languid loops sync up with the rest of the LP. It is also fascinating to compare alternate takes of "Birds Fly By Flapping Their Wings" and "Warmed By The Drift" with the album versions for the way they either move towards or diverge from the more jazz-indebted elements of Dropsonde’s sound.

  • Forma by Lucy Railton, is a work that burrows deep inside. It disorientates and teases, without malice. Its beauty lies in gentle projections, which, though subtle, leave deep impressions, like the wings of a nocturnal moth reflecting dark light. Its path, too, is unpredictable, but such disorientation is not a reflection of chaos. Instead, a mysterious intention appears through an imperious unfolding - its logic escapes us, but nevertheless captivates us. It is the story of a becoming of forms, as well as of their fading away and their appearance as a disappearance / Metabolist Meter (Foster, Cottin, Caetani and a Fly), by Max Eilbacher is a teeming piece, a matrix where textures and structures merge together, where the polyrhythmic instances become timbre, where the formal abstraction of the harmonic volutes coagulates around a vibrating form that is actualized in the dramatic reality of a dying fly. And this formal mastery is not disembodied in Max Eilbacher’s work and the kaleidoscopic forms of the sound spectra that he has deployed know how to resonate in the sensations and experiences of each one / These works, each with their own agenda, evolve with grace and inspiration in their exploration of vast sound worlds, and it is with great pride that we present them in the new collection

An artefact may pass easily between the four, entirely at the mercy of the care it is offered, or which finds along the way. The music in question – Marino Zuccheri’s Parete 1967 Per Emilio Vedova, an massive electronic composition created by the multi-talented engineer of the famous Milan RAI Studio of Phonology for the Italian Pavillion at the Montreal Expo ’67, is one such case. It began as part of something known – a wild, sonic public event, was almost entirely forgotten, becoming lost and then unknown. It wasn’t until 2005, when these recordings entered the orbit of Die Schachtel, that anyone had been able to hear them since they were made in 1967, offering their world premiere. As is often the case, the limited edition LP quickly sold out and drifted from view / Finally, after more than a decade long wait, Die Schachtel has wondrously pressed it again, allowing its beautiful challenges to reenter the world. Parete 1967 Per Emilio Vedova is one of the great artifacts of 1960’s Italian avant-garde – a wild, grinding metallic expose which sucks the ear into its depths, made, like so much of the best work of the era, in the spirit of collaboration and the meeting of two minds. Die Schachtel’s edition is the realisation of a life long dream of Marino Zuccheri’s to see this recordings issued.

The main inspiration is Derek Jarman, his diaries, his garden, his life: it is a portrait of the man, inspired by the life, the death, the political commitment, and the garden, a fresco composed of the music that Jarman loved and listened to. Sound and silence work together, music seeks redemption and purification in a living and sick atmosphere at the same time, like his garden at Prospect Cottage, a magical place, where colorful flowers that bloom between the stones, and crosses built by rusty irons left on the beach by the sea, coexist between the sea and a nuclear power plant

  • M. Zalla, Piero Umiliani : Problemi D'Oggi - LP (Black Sweat, 2015)

  • Don't be mislead from the name, the enigmatic M. Zalla, is one of the numerous alter ego of the italian maestro Piero Umiliani. Umiliani, during his period of fascination for psychedelic and electronic atmospheres, starts to compose a good number of musical portraits dedicated, as the title reveals, to the problems of his time / We are at the beginning of '70 and italians are worried by mafia, terrorism and social conflicts: so it has sense that the music choosen to represent this anxious problems has a sperimental nature; dark and disturbing a sort of unicum in the long and extremly productive Umiliani career.And if, in 2015, titles as "Mondo in Crisi", "Problemi Sociali", "Azione Sindacale" and "Mafia Oggi" sounds still sadly actual, it's even more surprising find that the music of "Problemi d'Oggi" (Today Problems) is projected on the future, sounding still alien and uniques / The record presents various styles: from Pink Floyd atmospheres (or Braen's Machine if you prefer...) to compositions characterized by a great use of drum machines and synthetizer (MOOG and Sinthy). We just have to listen the begginning of the opening track "Produzione" to give sense to the words of Sean Canty (Demdike Stare) that defines the music the first techno/trance track of the history; but between the grooves of this vinyl it's easy to find intuitions that many other artist and musicians – from Residents to Aphex Twin and Four Tet – will be able to catch during their carrers

Ambient tensions are represented via a dramatic cross fertilisation of orchestral strings, layered synths and primeval percussion with the Maestro on moody, reflective compositional duties / Stand out cut Strategia (‘Strategy’) harnesses the dopest Wu Tang Beats alongside swathes of high end electro blankets and is a sample classic aching to be reworked into further outer cosmos soundscapes.

  • Addict Ameba : Panamor - LP (Black Sweat, 2020)

  • More than simply being a band, Addict Ameba is a wide Italian collective that makes brotherhood the weapon to live music together crossing all cultural boundaries. The driving force lies in the heterogeneous background of its members and the relative familiarity with different folkloric areas. The original and ambitious arrangements make the result a delicious soup! In this first work, their personal Afro-latin-beat reveals a sincere meeting between African and Central American traditions… for this reason they are against the drift of continents! / The collective is connected to Al Doum and the Faryds, sharing some of their members, the same music label and the Guscio Studio where the album has been cooked thanks to the wisdom of the great master pirate. You can travel halfway between the Atlantic continents, where a gritty guitar deploys a solid knowledge of the stronger Latin-rock - you know the "Santana of Piola" is on board! - but it absorbs Funky and Tuareg riffs too, as well as brilliant psych deviations / Heavy horns abound with solutions and influences, blowing arias of Ethio-jazz or Cuban-Salsa crossings, such as Calypso and Caribbean progressions. However, it’s the rhythmic sailors section that supports all the dynamics of the sound with impeccable qualities of polyrhythm, sending seas of bodies into ecstasy; maybe they learn this rowing on a boat? Panamor represents "a profound union between living beings and objects in an increasingly divided World”. Such pirates of love!

Anadyomene, published for the first time in 1987, shows the myth of Venus in a dystopian and dreamlike world. Laneri conceives a sound poem that opens up to the archetypal dimension of the water creation, through the symbol of bivalve conch, the myth of the feminine power is narrated thanks to the verses of the renaissance poet Angelo Poliziano / Creating a daring connection between western and eastern music, travelling on the Mediterranean sea, the contemporary technologies and techniques revive and re-read ancient musical practices: contrapuntal structures and minimal electronic procedures venture into exotic analogies, strange Renaissance allusions, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean repertoires. Among otherworldly fairy voices, symphonic wandering pathos, aquatic disturbances, Indian Hindustani echoes or psychedelic radiances. A special relationship between space and time, architecture and music, the manipulation of sounds conceived as the art of memory in its various meanings of preservation, transformation and distortion

His final sound work, Yom Kippur 1973, is also one of his most important. Shavit made music by which people could meditate, but this record was intended to allow soldiers who fought in the Yom Kippur War (also known as the Ramadan/October/Arab-Israeli War) a means by which they could begin to process their trauma. The three pieces on this LP are characterised by the juxtaposition of stormy synthetic textures and arresting keyboard lines.

Many of the tracks here are dubbed-out techno tunes, almost slow enough to not allow for dancing but still strangely hypnotic in their grooves. The overall effect is similar to Shinochi Atobe’s heat-hazed club tracks, though Stott’s productions issue more from the dubwise school. There is a spike in energy around three-quarters of the way through It Should Be Us - "0L9" has some Martyn to it while "Ballroom", in what was possibly Stott’s attempt at making music of the same sort as the track’s title, ends up in a space not dissimilar to Addison Groove’s "Footcrab"

A couple of two-track 7's put out in late 2018 and early 2019 on Japanese house music label Flower Records soon sold out.

  • Coil : Horse Rotorvator - LP (Recordvox, 2011)

  • Exact replica of the original / This was Coil's second full-length release, and it is perhaps one of the most genuinely dark albums ever recorded. Most of the songs have a menacing sexual feel to them, and the subject matter is death and perversion. "Ostia" explores the murder of deviant Italian filmmaker Pasolini (who directed the sleaze-fest "Salo: 120 Days of Sodom"), while "The Golden Section" is a monologue about the erotic nature of death, set to a symphonic apocalyptic score / There are aspects of electronica to the music, but this LP of course predated the whole mainstream industrial/techno movement of the 90's, so it's more of a subtlety. There is an Eastern feel to some of the music, and "Penetralia" demonstrates how much of an influence this band was for artists like NIN and Ministry. The cover of Leonard Cohen's "Who By Fire" is outstanding, remarkably faithful to the original while still sounding like Coil. It goes without saying that, with song titles like "The Anal Staircase" and pictures of nude male statues, there is an undeniable homosexual theme to much of this material, but it's not something that is constantly thrown in the listener's face. I recommend this for anybody who is into disturbing, avant-garde industrial music to be dismembered to

Their meanderings through Europe can be heard in the long, drawn-out, and ancient strings, which are far removed from the present day, and the dusty notes feel as though they’ve recently been unearthed or discovered, opening up at the same time as an old family album, maybe.

  • Le Théâtre du Chêne Noir : Miss Madona - 7" (Souffle Continu, 2020)

  • Two years after having recorded Aurora, which Gérard Terronès released on his Futura Records label in 1971, the Théâtre du Chêne Noir put on another show, Miss Madona, first at Avignon, and then at Ariane Mnouchkine’s Théâtre du Soleil. From this play, Gérard Gelas’ group took three sound extracts which they made, with no further ado, into a single. Miss Madona is thus the second recording by Théâtre du Chêne Noir. The two sides(and three tracks) offer up an unbelievable instrumental theatre with something of a white magic ritual about it / The actors, so much better for the record, were also musicians; alongside Miss Madona, ex-star of the circus and now idol, were the piano and electric organ of Daniel Dublet, the saxophones of Pierre Surtel and Jean-Louis Canaud, and the trumpet of Gilbert Say. But there are also the vocals of Beatrice Le Thierry, Bénédicte Maulet, Jean Paul Chazalon, Monik Lamy, Nicole Aubiat… / which added to the mystery of what happened on stage. The sound of this particular theatre may remind us as much of John Coltrane as of Ravi Shankar, Pierre Henry or the Art Ensemble of Chicago. There are voices from beyond the grave, inspirational for future musicians: Steven Stapleton, for example who included Théâtre du Chêne Noir in his Nurse With Wound List.

Tiny details in the sounds are important and what might appear to be insignificant, dull or uneventful is often salient. Acute, obsessive listening brings these elements to the fore / "Can a music made with the modern tools of digital music and contemporary production sound eerily as if created with the same equipment that Stockhausen, Henri and Berio all availed themselves of in the radio studios of the 50s and 60s – and yet sound bright and fresh to the ears of today's listeners?

Produced in pro tools with GRM plug-ins, this record displays a series of sharp impulsions, reputations and percussive audio attacks on the sense. Focusses on extreme panning to induce the listening into another auditory world / La ba-balle du chien-chien à la me-mère [The ball of the old lady's dog] (2001) is a playful take on the way that we speak in a childlike way to pets. A brief narrative at the start invites the listener into this "pet speak" scene, with the sound of footsteps and chatter. These gradually crescendo and morph into a cacophonous swirling explosion. Deux Dents Dehors [Two teeth sticking out] (2007) is a pun on Bernard Parmegiani’s piece Dedans Dehors [Inside Outside] (1977), composed for his birthday / It takes snippets of lively vernacular and processes these into complex patterns of unintelligible and unrecognisable speech sounds, in sustained or percussive sequences.

  • Le Théâtre du Chêne Noir : Aurora - LP (Souffle Continu, 2020)

  • In 1972, Steve Lacy recorded Solo, one of the gems in his discography, in the Théâtre du Chêne Noir in Avignon. The previous year (which was also the year in which Aurora appeared), the eponymous group of actors led by Gérard Gelas, took up residence in what was a 12th century chapel. The Théâtre du Chêne Noir is therefore not just the name of a space open to all kinds of artistic audacity, but also the name of the great Theatre Group which resides there. Gérard Terronès showed some flair when he published, in 1971 on Futura, the first album by Théâtre du Chêne Noir. It has to be said that the group run by Gérard Gelas was right up his street: non-conformist, eccentric, protesting, just so alive… / Singing too, as we can still hear today on Aurora, recorded at Avignon the 22 and 23 June 1971. Aurora, which had been created a few weeks earlier at Ariane Mnouchkine’s Théâtre du Soleil, is according to, Gelas’ own words, a fantastic tale with actor musicians who play out the fabulous story of the Earth, and children who fight against terrifying bird men who fly from planet to planet to enslave the inhabitants and become the masters of the universe. It is an ambitious subject and thankfully (even more so for the album than for the play), the actors are also excellent musicians! / If we can find «Chêne Noir» between Checkpoint Charlie and Chillum in the Nurse With Wound List created by Steven Stapleton and John Fothergill, Aurora is closer to Stances à Sophie by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago and the Divine Comédie by Bernard Parmegiani and François Bayle. So, we need to move forward cautiously in this landscape of recitals and songs, of mysteries and cries, where saxophones and flutes, electric guitars and percussions spring up… Could the tragic climax have been possible without music? The Théâtre du Chêne Noir replies no to the question and creates a fascinating mix of text and music without one dominating the other. Enjoy the show!

  • Opening Performance Orchestra : Radio Music Extended (Based on John Cage's Radio Music) - CD (Sub Rosa, 2020)

  • The composition Radio Music Extended, performed by Opening Performance Orchestra, draws upon the concept John Cage brought to bear in his piece Radio Music from 1956. In collaboration with the Tesla Museum in Trest, whose collections include unique exhibits of radio electronic and audio-visual devices, the 72-minute piece Radio Music Extended came into being during a private live performance in July 2018. The seven members of Opening Performance Orchestra and two alternating guests operated 13 historical radio sets, dating from between 1935 and 1961 / Over the past 60 years or so, the content of the broadcast band of the airwaves has significantly changed, yet the acoustic environment has remained highly variegated, providing a novel quality of sound.

Whereas the majority of the songs are instrumentals centred around taiko drums and ambient synth textures that mimic the plot, one of the most iconic parts of the score is the opening main theme ‘Making of a Cyborg’ that features a Japanese choir. The female voices are singing parts of the wedding song Toho Kami Emi Tame in the ancient language of Yamato, fusing traditional Japanese notes with Bulgarian harmony, with its swelling synths perfectly capturing the building tension towards the climax of the film. There are too many sonic moments to mention that make your hair stand on end, all resulting in a score that is a hugely important work of art that stands as a timeless milestone in both soundtracks and electronic music as a whole / You can hear influence from Kenji Kawai's orchestral score in the work of everyone from Boards of Canada, Hudson Mohawke, KWC92, Japan Blues & Lone.

The pleasant, glistening ambient sounds float in and around the greenery, running like a stream, its watery tones of wellbeing flowing through a path of least resistance. Unobscured notes bloom and gently swell in volume, and the music breathes in time and in tune with the natural world / The music is also an intensive, physical work, mirroring the hard labour required from the outdoors, and it isn’t necessarily a leisurely pursuit, because a lot of time has been spent cultivating these sounds, shaping them to be as smooth and as relaxing as possible. There is much joy to be found in growth, in the breaking of the soil and the baby shoots and leaves that spring up, and the music is always developing / Nature opens her eyes in the spring, and the record is a part of its fruit, shaping and influencing the music while dressing the trees with a sprinkling of May blossom.

  • The tracks on Against All Logic’s 2017-2019 go further than any of the project’s previous records. AAL mastermind Nicolas Jaar has hinted at harshening his sound in the past - the uptempo LP 2012-2017 was flecked with digital distortion and sometimes hinted at a more hard-bitten sound lurking beneath the sample-house bangers. However, the manner in which he switches things up here is still thrillingly unexpected / The core style of 2017-2019 is techno, and hard techno at that. This is best represented in a stern, fuzzed-up mid-section run, from the Lydia Lunch-featuring power-electronics banger "If You Can’t Do It Good, Do It Hard" up to the seasick minimal lurch of "Faith". Jaar moves outwards from this core style in a variety of directions at either end of 2017-2019, maintaining a moody experimentalism all the while. "With An Addict" and "Penny" are the most uptempo jams here - the former, a fluttering juke joint, is an instant highlight - while industrial noise sharpens the edges of the relatively melodic opening duo "Fantasy" and "If Loving You Is Wrong". 2017-2019 does not deal in tracks which will slot seamlessly into a mix, and this uncompromising air is what makes it such a delight / On Against All Logic’s 2017-2019, Nicolas Jaar gives in to his darker impulses. In doing so, he creates some of the best music of his career

Originally issued as a digital-only release back in February of 2018, it's slowly grown to become one of the most cherished releases in the entire Other People discography. Much like Kerrier District did to disco, A.A.L. (Against All Logic) borrows heavily from the samples and sounds ingrained deep within Jaar's listening habits and evidently a record collection packed to the brim with classic soul, house, and most importantly, funk hooks / Keenly twisting these sounds and filtering them through a studio set up that's leaning heavily on the beefed-up kick drums and reverb units to make a well-executed homage to these sounds, pieced together with the inherent idea of making the listener unable to resist the urge to move, be it in a bedroom, basement, or just sat in work staring at a computer screen. A.A.L. (Against All Logic) is both a well-executed homage to all of the above references, yet also just a really strong and enjoyable record from Nicolas Jaar.

  • Nicolas Jaar : Space Is Only Noise - LP (Circus Company, 2012)

  • With a dexterous form of maturity that travels way beyond his modest age of twenty-two, Nicolas Jaar has given us one of the most graceful and energetic albums of recent times, let alone 2011. The beauty of "Space Is Only Noise" seems to be found in the way that it wears its split-personality's heart on its sleeve. At once it is fragile and unassuming, whilst simultaneously confident and eccentric; and with a sense of mischief and playfulness, whilst still maintaining an air of drama and maturity. At once light, and at the same time dark, it is an album of delicately assembled parallels and contradictions that work side by side to create that perfectly balanced middle ground / The gentle sound of waves lapping upon a shore in the opening track 'Etre' slowly eases the listener into the down-tempo slo-mo grooves that have become Jaar's trademark. Meanwhile, vocals as disparate as French film dialogue, to the Ray Charles sample of 'I Got a Woman', on the identically named track, weave in and out to create moments of intense texture / Throwing in a myriad of influences from techno, house, hip hop, jazz and blues, it is any wonder that the album maintains any form of direction and clarity. However, cohesion is one of the album's biggest strengths. To listen to any one of the fourteen tracks on the album alone and unaccompanied, dramatic though it may sound, would be some kind of travesty, for Jaar has masterfully crafted a true narrative that undoubtedly deserves the time, space and detachment for which it was intended

Whereas Ielasi approached his medium in August with a more traditional, linear methodology, Aix witnesses a transposition of this technique, and now Ielasi layers his sound vertically. In this sense, Aix isn't an album about progression, but rather growth.

After first serialistic compositions, "Credo" (1968) was a turning point in PÄRT's life and work, being the first piece carrying a religious title and expressing a creative crisis that PÄRT answered by lesser compositions and studying medieval and Renaissance music in search for a new musical language. In 1976 PÄRT returned with "Für Alina" and introduced his new (and self-developed) style that should become his trademark sound that made him the famous and honoured composer he is now: the socalled tintinnabuli / In 1984, after the Estonian composer and his family emigrated from the USSR and settled in Germany, the album "Tabula rasa" opened the next important chapter in PÄRT#s carrer: the ever continuing close relation to Manfred EICHER and his ECM label where many of the composer's works have since been released. "Works For Choir" presents several compositions for choir from the period from 1989 to 1991, recorded in Vilnius with the aweard winning Vilnius Municipal Choir Jauna Muzika under the artistic direction of Vaclovas Augustinas.

This is first time any of Eastman’s music has been available on LP, with the three extended pieces for four pianos, Gay Guerrilla, Evil Nigger and Crazy Nigger, all written and preformed around 1980. All three works generate their epic soundscapes through adamantly restated patterns and interlocking canons, not fragmenting now, but preaching urgent truths

  • Bernard Parmegiani : Chants Magnétiques - CD (Fractal, 2007)

  • Fac-simile edition with original artwork and liner notes / Bernard Parmegiani’s fascinating, long out-of-print album finally gets its much-deserved release on CD. Originally released in 1974, this recording is as dark, unsettling, and alluring as anything being released today. As far as mentorship goes, studying under Pierre Schaeffer himself at GRM has to be one of the highest pedigrees possible. Even so, such situations can sometimes produce little more than clones of the master. Thankfully, that's not the case here / There's a paranoiac strain running through Chants Magnetiques. Patterns rev frenetically to high speeds only to unexpectedly crash and burn. Metallic clangs lumber from the darkness to disrupt the progress of everything that's transpired previously. Dire beeps accelerate into emergency warnings, and swelling, amplified squeaks threaten to suffocate the eardrums. The haze and hum of machinery, echoing plunks, eerie drones, and howling winds permeate many of the tracks

Undulating cavernous analogue throbs shadow the drifts of perceptible pan tonalities that spread through the stereo field to construct a dense textural soundscape / A restless anguish and palpable tension permeates this composition, as an exploration of the borderland of some unthought-of region. Transitions of place, form and existence manifest into an audible realisation of John Everall’s intensely personal reactions following the death of his mother. Borderlands exposes the intolerable ache and impenetrable desolation of loss. This posthumous release was arranged in agreement with John Everall prior to his death on 26th September 2014

The original version released on cassette in 1992, first as a private demo tape and soon after slightly slimmed officially on the Cold Meat Industry sub label Sound Source, had many flaws in the recording quality due to bad equipment and poor skills. The remixed version from 1995 was an attempt to make things better. It was a try to recreate the whole album but the mission failed. Only about half of the tracks was possible to recreate and the second half were just the original version treated with equalisation and reverb. Also, many sounds on the remixed tracks were missing thus replaced with new sounds. In 2012 there was a new more serious attempt to recreate the whole album. The intention with the reduxed version was to recreate the energy and feeling of the original version but still making it well balanced and clear in the mix

The first side positions itself somewhere between stoned komische synth and more nuanced electroacoustic tactics, all weighted by a melancholic undertow. The second side builds on the tension of the former as an undulating drone teases all variety of matter to rise and fall amongst the foreign space it inhabits.

The seemingly random yet ordered nature of events is reminiscent of the behaviour of the natural world providing this machine driven release a convincing organic feel. Whether invoking mirrors, distant galaxies or a pond of frogs it is a delightful challenge to focus and locate what is nature and what is nurture.

Artwork by Masami Akita / Dadarottenvator was released in 1995 by the magnificent German label Praxis Dr. Bearmann in a limited edition of 175 hand-numbered copies, pressed on green vinyl, and housed in a wooden box / The tracks fall right in-between the atmosphere of Merzbow's early 90's work and his more hyper-aggressive mid 90's power electronics work and it's a charming mix, presenting the listener with some of the best elements from each phase of his evolution. Along with Noisembryo, Venereology and Pulse Demon, it represents the top of the immense artist’s production. All tracks performed using cheap electronics and junk, no use for synthesizer and midi sampler

  • Masonna : All Live Recording At My Room - LP (Urashima, 2020)

  • All Live Recording At My Room have been released in 1989 on Coquette, and now return for the first time in astonishing vinyl format fully remastered! The tracks were recorded live, at home ,with no mixing and no overdubs. Album is full of very rough harsh noise that’s mostly made up of lots of distorted screaming. This early work is very loud, noisy, and has lots of angry energy. The distortion and effects on the vocals are top notch, they in combination with his awesome screaming create a complete audio assault. Divided into two parts of fifteen minutes each that focuses an electrically overcharged universe, punctuating the electric and vocal sonorous power with some quite moments and brief interruptions, conferring a very particular dynamic to these tracks / Controlled, gorgeous, and absolutely intense, encountered with distance, Masonna’s stunning All Live Recording At My Room stands with the absolute best of its era, and outsteps a great deal more. Chaos and noise, while direct and at ease with its own voice, it’s nearly impossible to not fall in love with this record once heard. An absolute revelation, reemerging at long last. Masonna is an emblematic figure of Japanoise, who shines by a personal approach and an immediately recognizable style. A zenith in the noisy Japanese landscape

  • Yoshio Machida, Cal Lyall : Premeditation - 2x10" (By The Bluest Of Seas, 2020)

  • Deluxe edition in gatefold cover with 8 pages photographic booklet / In the early 2000s, Tokyo's SuperDeluxe was a meeting point for many experimental musicians, both international and Japanese. This duo sprung from a live collaboration at the venue in 2006, where Machida was experimenting with processed steel pan and Lyall was largely performing using a tabletop guitar setup with a range of electronics. Many subsequent encounters were heavily experimental, ranging from densely layered noise music to sound collage / Through the years, the collaboration shifted to a more tonal approach, with standard tunings and stronger compositional elements. Both musicians have a deep interest in traditional improvisational forms, so there was a natural evolution towards structural ideas—based on minimal scalar patterns—as the sound became more acoustic. The most recent instrumentation explores the unusual combination of steel pan, slit drums and banjo, while also delving deeper into the characteristics of the instruments themselves

In an array of delightful to jarringsurprises, a sinuous ballad will be troubled with remoteblasts, or abruptly interrupted by a collapse of the base.While the tracks resonate fundamentally with a feelingof falling, failing, decay, the sleeve picture conveys thatdestruction is in fact where everything starts

After moving to the village of Gravesano (Ticino/Northern Italy) in 1954, Scherchen established an electroacoustic experimental studio on his premises and created a meeting place for scientists, composers, musicians and sound engineers from all over the world / Among his guests were Iannis Xenakis, Luc Ferrari, Edgar Varèse and Luigi Nono, just to name a few. Originally commissioned and broadcasted by Deutschlandfunk Kultur, "Schall und Klang" is a personal portrait of Scherchen and his time in Gravesano. Kubisch brings together archival footage from the Scherchen estate and the Scherchen archive at Akademie der Künste in Berlin, tape recordings, recited texts from Scherchen's own quarterly "Gravesaner Blätter" as well as her own compositions and field recordings referring to her research made on site in 2016

  • Subjectivation is the new solo album from Swiss artist Antoine Chessex. Produced by Rekem Records (GR/UK) and Fragment Factory (DE), it features some of his most direct and developed work to date / Using material from solo live performances in San Francisco, Berlin, Zürich and London between 2010 and 2015, the sides of this record distill the touchstones of Antoine's sonic language into two sharp and forceful statements. The first side opens with a formidable tour-de-force, a developing field of distortion in which tenor saxophone adds on a metal-tinged sludgy tonality, wedged through dense masses of sound / Following are some more subtly executed sonics, documented at London's Café Oto, on the second side. Here it is Chessex's multiphonics taking centre stage, a rapid-fire of voices from the horn that gets enveloped in a back-and-forth between electroacoustic structures, psychoacoustics, and pure tone. Connecting the two sides is a meticulous attention to the different levels that operate within sound, and a compositional hand that favours intensity and depth, making this one of Chessex's most definitive statements

Alga Marghen's issue of “Phonopoetics” places this little heard, and profoundly important artist into the center of you consciousness where she will no doubt remain.

The material oscillates between electroacoustic composition, sound art, and live performance. The pieces are named after precious gemstones, all of which are traditionally ascribed with special powers. In using these names, the artist seems to refer to the esoteric roots of the genre invoked by the LP’s title / The compositions, however, resist the genre’s characteristically naïve re-enchantment of the world and distrust holistic esotericism’s promise of healing and restoration. Instead, they are defined much more by an interest in affective uncertainties. The gemstones don’t speak, and they don’t convey the mythical forces ascribed to them—rather, they rest in their own materiality. They don’t want to affect or influence—they simply want to exist as witnesses of/to the ultimately incommensurable reality that lives beyond our own horizon

  • Vinyl comes with an etching on the D-Side / Renowned electronic musician Stefan Betke, aka Pole, was responsible for a series of distinguished dub techno records during towards the latter end of the 1990s, but in recent years his release rate has slowed to a crawl. His last album was 2007's Steingarten, while his only major releases since then have been a trilogy of 12"s (the Waldgeschicten series in 2011) and a one-off collaboration with Roll The Dice in 2012. So it’s fair to say that Wald, Betke's first studio album in eight years, carries with it a weight of expectation. Billed as a single, 50-minute piece of music split into three acts, Wald is inspired by Betke's walks through the Isar Valley and the forests of the Alps / Still spiritually aligned to dub, the music is more freeform and three-dimensional than ever before, culminating in a psychedelic-synthetic final act. Its genesis lies in the Waldgeschichten series, and indeed some of Wald's numbers are live interpretations of these earlier tracks, but ultimately this record feels as though Betke is finding new methods to express himself - both recognisably Pole yet never retreading familiar ground

So many of the current crop of dark ambient producers - and artists of many genres beyond that one - owe a debt to the 1996 full-length Return Of Black September. The hour-long, five-track selection draws on ambient techno, drone, sound art, music concrete and experimental locked groove.

  • Bernard Fort : FRACTALS / Brain Fever - LP (Editions Mego, 2020)

  • Recollection GRM / Bernard Fort is a hugely important figure in the development of electroacoustic composition. His 1981 piece "Fractals" was composed at Studios GMVL, the recording house for the Groupe Musiques Vivantes de Lyon that Fort established in the mid-70s. Across a whole side of vinyl we find Fort moving between drones, buzzes, strange knocking rhythms and froggy synth burps in a manner that recalls his peer Eliane Radigue. Despite being composed several decades later, 2017's "Brain Fever" is an equally dense exploration of sound, this time with more of a focus on birdsong and forest tones

  • Bernard Parmegiani : Violostries - LP (Editions Mego, 2020)

  • Recollection GRM / Editions Mego present three early works from the seminal musique concrete/electroacoustic artist Bernard Parmegiani / Violostries opens with a 1965 recording of its title number, a piece in which Parmegiani and the violinist Devy Erlih explode the notion of a violin concerto via live audio manipulation and post-Schoenberg atonality. A 1988 stereo mix of 1967's "Capture éphémère" follows, a blend of harsh noise and slurping tape-play that foreshadows Oval and Territorial Gobbing. Violostries ends with 1971's Ligeti-in-digital exploration "La Roue Ferris"

  • Repress / As composer, musician and initiator of the San Francisco Tape Music Center which he co-founded with Pauline Oliveros and Ramon Sender in 1961, Morton Subotnick (born 1933) has propelled the progress of electronic music in several significant ways. From 1963 on he worked with Don Buchla on the development of the early synthesizer "Buchla Series 100" before moving to New York where the artist-in-residence at the newly established Tisch School Of The Arts of the New York University was enabled to set up his own studio. That’s where Subotnick's most popular work "Silver Apples Of The Moon" was commissioned by Nonesuch as the first electronic composition ever that was especially conceived for a vinyl release (in opposition to the common practice of performing live) / Till the current day this seminal album has not lost his visionary power, has since long been considered one of the essential milestones in electronic music with great effect on later generations of artists – starting from the cult formation Silver Apples to Laika who titled their debut "Silver Apples Of The Moon" too. Now for the first time since its original 1967 release, Subotnick's masterpiece (which was selected for the Library Of Congress in 2009) has finally been made available on vinyl at last: a new audiophile 180gm LP that was cautiosly remastered for vinyl

  • Krokofant, Ståle Storløkken, Håker Flaten : Q - LP+CD (Rune Grammofon, 2019)

  • As David Fricke points out in his liner notes, this is not just another novelty guest-project, the Krokofant on "Q" is like a brand new band. In fact, all the involved are so happy with this album that there's bound to come more, with a bunch of new material already written. After three albums in a little over three years they felt a need to try something new, taking the band one step further. Especially Tom Hasslan, guitarist and main composer, felt an urge to expand the canvas and sonic possibilities of his writing and playing / Hasslan's tunes are perfect vehicles for keyboard player Ståle Storløkken (Elephant9, Supersilent, Terje Rypdal) to present the full scope of his playing; from sheer pastoral beauty to full on jazz skronk. The same can be said about Mathisen, who is given ample room for soloing. The tunes are rich in harmonic structures and melodic hooks, and with the distinctive sax/organ combination it's difficult not to occasionally think of Van der Graaf Generator in their prime / By introducing Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (The Thing, Scorch Trio, Atomic) on electric bass, work was lifted from Hasslan's shoulders and a "proper" rhythm section was born, Skalstad and Flaten instantly bonding. As Fricke also notes, ""Q" is their best album, the fullest expression to date of their original design - a drawing of the past forward - with a new strength in numbers"

  • Fire! Orchestra, Krzysztof Penderecki : Actions - LP (Rune Grammofon, 2020)

  • New reading and conduction by Mats Gustafsson. The first (and until now only?) recorded interpretation of Krzysztof Penderecki's Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra took place in 1971 at Donaueschingen and featured the New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra, assembled by Don Cherry for the occasion and conducted by the great Polish composer. That orchestra also consisted of 14 musicians, including international jazz heavyweights such as Kenny Wheeler, Peter Brötzmann, Thomasz Stanko, Terje Rypdal, Han Bennink and others / The new, extended reading by Mats Gustafsson and Fire! Orchestra was commissioned by the Sacrum Profanum festival in Kraków, Poland in 2018. The idea was to place this classic piece in a contemporary setting, with a new approach and a new body of sound. However, the original score was used as a platform for the new reading, connecting history with the present. A score in this context is most often of a graphic nature to present reference points, visualized on the sleeve by Kim Hiorthøy's cut-up adaption of Mats Gustafsson's score. It's also worth noticing that the instrumentation is more or less identical to that of 1971, the main difference being a tuba replacing one of the trombones. Finally, this new reading clocks in at 40 minutes, and is thus considerably longer than the 1971 version
