XPO 201​-​3
by Les Graciés

Les Graciés (2012-ongoing) is the conjunction of Eric Douglas Porter (Afrikan Sciences) and Gaël Segalen (IhearU), a French – American tandem of sister & brother in sound, a evident and karmic encounter of free spirit music makers, searchers of spectrum and rhythm for distinction in sound, in full sympathy with the unknown.

Reiew Reblog – Anne Guthrie ~ Brass Orchids

a closer listen

Brass Orchids is a dense and unusual album, whose outer darkness disguises an inner light.  On the surface, it’s a set filled with field recordings, drones and danger.  Below the surface is Anne Guthrie‘s ancestry, apparent in piano pieces from the artist’s deceased grandfather.  “Spider” includes a segment of tap dancing that would brighten the heart of even a hauntologist.  The project challenges our ideas of the past: is it something to be exhumed, feared, celebrated or a mixture of all three?  While Guthrie declines to settle on a single answer, she underlines a common theme: that whatever lies in the past is worth excavating.

“Bellona” recalls the work of debris artist Tarab, whose soundscaping often takes place in abandoned buildings and includes scraping, drips and a tone of brokenness.  But there’s that piano, throwing everything off.  Usually when one hears such a thing, one thinks of “The Shining” or…

Review Reblog – Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith – Electronic Series Vol 1 : Abstractions

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
Title: Electronic Series Vol 1 : Abstractions
Keyword: experimental

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith comes back with a wonderful eclectic world in which the oddest cartoonish creatures made out fantasy sounds are meeting up with incredible dense synthetic music. This scenery opens up gradually, yet almost instant. As if you had crawled out of the rabbit’s hole instead of in as this fantasy place must surely enough be above ground, playing respects to the sun and all that lives within its realms of light.

When I went for a musical stroll within these so called abstractions, I could actually see this pleasant place and it odd but friendly looking characters as clear as possible. They will explore the fantasy trees, ski on watery pools, jump around like children on jumpy toys, speed away on self engineered speedy vehicles, fly around the elves trees like magical fairies that must…

Anna Wærum fragment -al
by Anna Wærum

Electronic collage, experimental, fieldrecording, leftfield  or beautiful wistful otherworldly listening.

“In her sound-collages Anna Wærum blurs the boundaries between language, sound and music. From this particular point, a secretive, personal and dreamy sound-scape emerges. According to Anna the collages are made ”out of a wish to examine the moods, stories and poetic qualities which are buried in our aural world, using the everyday sounds I meet in my life. An exploration of the exact moment when a field-recording looses its concrete meaning and becomes something else, something we hear as music”.

The sound-collages are composed of Anna’s private sound archive consisting of phonerecordings made within the last 3-4 years. This archive is continuous and recorded without the purpose of composition, but as diary-recordings of sounds-bits she wants to remember or sample, of thoughts or conversations she wants to revisit.
