NOISE IN OPPOSITION VOLUME III

Noise In Opposition Volume 3 – is an anti-fascist, anti-prejudice comp for noise/abstract/weirdo artists, but it’s embarrassingly male according to Mark Chickenfish. Well I’m sure there are some artists out there who may be interested in creating something for this project? Details below –

Noise In Opposition

Against my better judgement (alright, I wanted to do it really) I am opening submissions for a third volume of Noise In Opposition, as quite frankly the world is going to shit and we need as many people to stand up and say “Fuck The Nazis” as possible.

Submission guide:
Thematically appropriate material is cool, but I’m not here to tell other artists what to do. The general style is noise/abstract/weirdo musics, but I’m open to offers.
If you must record a 6 hour epic drone cycle we could talk about a separate release maybe? NiO can function as an umbrella netlabel too.

Technical: uncompressed files please, sensibly eq’ed but some half-arsed mastering will be done on the whole album (if you have an artistic vision that impacts this, tell me about it). File download links can be sent through the usual social media channels or emailed to kanakala at…

R.A.N. is the dark electronic / rhythmic ambient music project by HÜMA UTKU.

“Hailing from İstanbul and based in Berlin for a couple of years now, HÜMA UTKU has been a prolific artist lately: as R.A.N. (Roads At Night) she released her debut album ”Her Trembling Ceased”, followed by the remix album ‘Remixed: Stories Retold’ (both 2015, PARTAPART RECORDS), and contributed several tracks and remixes to various compilations. Besides studio production, she travels the planet to perform live or as DJ, and in November / December 2017 UTKU was Artist in Residency at YARA MEKAWEI’s Submarine Studio, Cairo.
The title of her debut on KARL, “Şeb-i Yelda” (pronounced Shab-e Yalda in English), is a Persian term that signifies ‘the longest night’. Inspired by the Ottoman poet BOSNIAN SABIT EFENDI’s verses, R.A.N. created four new, very personal tracks, developing further her musical language by fusing traditional instruments with deep electronic sounds, distortion and dark ambience, in order to create intense atmospheres of anger, anxiety, grief – but also empowerment and hope. These compositions are UTKU’s personal reflections on the long lasting devastation and turmoil in the Middle East as well as witnessing the individual experiences related to these happenings. The titles translate as:’“Şeb-i Yelda” (The Longest Night), “Ay” (The Moon), “Sabah” (The Morning) and “Kul” (The Servant).

 

Review Reblog – Şeb-i Yelda by R.A.N.

R.A.N. | Şeb-i Yelda just shows what can be done creatively with techno and for me, what a find.

Karlrecords (12″/DL)

Berlin-based Turkish artist Hüma Utku, better known as R.A.N. (short for Roads at Night) releases her first recording since 2015 with a four track 12″ EP, Şeb-i Yelda – and it opens with the title track. A disgorged drone roams freely, and its bloated mane crisscrosses through the entire sound space in bulky air-infused layers.  The atmosphere initially finds equity between the ambient and the industrial. Here and there its encrusted with a sparse cragged percussive effect until a beat is formed, and you suddenly start to experience why this is a crystal clear 12″ rather than another format. Utku adds something akin to a high-hat and other beat-adjacent rhythms, all the while a mysterious discord on traditional musics of the Middle East emerge, but done with restraint in the underbelly of an otherwise funky exterior.  The track concludes with something akin to…

Reblog – Kusum Normoyle Interview: “What else the voice might do” — Difficult Fun

Quote

I first knew of Kusum Normoyle because she was the woman who dressed completely in black—black shirt, black pants, black shoes—and screamed, really loudly, in public spaces. She was untouchably cool. But more specifically, these series of performances were called S.I.T.E. (Screaming in the Everyday), where Normoyle would scream into a microphone, her body curved […]
