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.

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.

 

Review Reblog – Stephanie Merchak – Eine Frage

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Stephanie Merchak
Title: Eine Frage
Keywords: dark minimal dark techno electronic dubtechno experimental electronic Montreal
Label: D.M.T. Records

With a mysterious veil of electronics Stephanie Merchak aims straight at the knee caps, making them spas out involuntary rhythmic ways. It’s like a doctor hitting these special muscles with a cute little hammer to see and measure the response rate of the muscle. Maybe if you are paralyzed this trick might not work, but in all other cases the new music of Stephanie makes one dance with it without consent. The rhythms are simply irresistible and the ghostly ambient artifacts that surround them are like the spirits that make sure to pull you in a deep dancing trance.

They are deep and to the point, aiming directly to the most effective areas with baselines that will pull even the biggest resister into this dazed fancy state of body & mind…

Review Reblog – Me, Claudius: Back To The Sweat-Out Tower

“Static and debris. Skronk and wail. This is music?”
Yes.

 

We need no swords

sweat outLinear Obsessional CDr and download

The machines are taking over. But not in the way you think. Instead of the sleek digital overlords of sci-fi films – Skynet, the Matrix and so on – what if there was a grass roots mechanical revolution, in which the distributed intelligences of our everyday devices decided to fuck us up on a very basic level? What if, by refusing to do what we expected them to do, these microchip servants enacted a classic switcheroo, skipping from servant to master via a passive aggressive withdrawal of cooperation, thus breaking down the machine-human compact in a blunt but profound manner?

This is the scenario envisaged by ‘Back To The Sweat-Out Tower’, the sophomore release from dub-glitch guru Me, Claudius. Its sparse, repetitive soundscapes present visions of a planet where humanity has been elbowed out of the picture by encroaching automation, its post-Fordist advancement so gradual…

hashtag International Women’s Day pt2

To try to get as many artists some visibility I have been posting compilations. Again, this is not an exhaustive list and are just suggestions of starting points . I may add to it in future.

In no real order or preference and yes, some are diverse….

 

Latin American sound explorations.


 

Experimental noise, noisecore, speedcore, harsh noise, noise wall, power electronics Vancouver


 

A monstrous compilation but only a fraction of french contemporary sound creativity.


 

Inspired by the new scene of independent female artists and electronic music producers from South America.


 

An experimental music compilation featuring ten female composers from far east Asia (Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, China).


 

This multi-genre compilation was inspired by Ionesco’s play ‘Rhinoceros’ with various artists voicing their protest via sound.


 

Experimental, ambient, electroacoustic, industrial, noise, ritual.
