Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marta Sap
Title: Live soft session Kożyczkowo 2018Green Circles Festival
Keywords: electronic world chill chill out chillwave ethnic ethnotrip ethnotronica kalimba Gdańsk

After really enjoying ‘breaths’ by Marta Sap and revisiting this electronic didgeridoo album many times in a fondly matter, I got this incredible urge to hear something different coming out of this artist’s inventory. With a few clicks there my answer was; a live session!

I drank some wine, closed my eyes and heard Marta play. She opened up the gates of dreams, with something that sounded like a well tuned kalimba. Something that got a magical touch with the help of spacious effects that really made reality look far and surreality nearby. There I say and listened in silence, cheered with brainwaves the upcoming peacefulness that this music was providing. I sipped the content of the glass and stroked my own ears fondly as Marta…

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).

Catherine Christer Hennix | Selected Early Keyboard Works
Empty Editions/Blank Forms (2xLP/DL)

I’m always thrilled when I have the opportunity, amidst so much new talent that I’m exposed to regularly, to discover an artist’s work, an experienced septuagenarian, for the very first time. Four of Swedish composer (and Renaissance woman) Catherine Christer Hennix‘s works are nicely showcased in this co-released collection (a volume of writings is forthcoming via Blank Forms) of Selected Early Keyboard Works.

I find it quite interesting when unknown creatives who have been better known as scientists, visual artists, mathematicians and philosophers (like Hennix) are brought into the light of public consciousness, especially when they have worked on their craft for four plus decades with little recognition. This is all so much more satisfying (to these ears) when the focus is on the minimal. As a youth Hennix also worked at Stockholm’s…

Reblog – Hidden Gems: People Like Us, “Lowest Common Denominator” — Bandcamp Daily

Great series Hidden Gems and this is a real gem, especially when you realise how it was created..

 First released in 1994, deleted for around 20 years now! It had uninspiring track titles but that’s what it was like in 1994. All composed pre-multitrack era – on an Amiga 500 computer tracker program with an 8-bit sampler (Technosound Turbo – cost 28 pounds!) and a bunch of willing friends. Original cover is a 12 inch square paper collage.”

 

A sound collage work that will warp all perceptions of reality.
