Today’s Discovery – Feed Goals by Enchanted Lands

 

“…assemblages, showing intricate weaving and arranging of sound materials. Her tracks form strange scenes or frames where just when the sound seems to settle down a turnover point is reached and a delicate change of balance results in a whole new plateau. Receiving cues from ASMR, impact blasts, and natural phenomena, these elements become sound ingredients that add microscopic texture, sensuality and depth to their complementary sounds. Moving beyond any high or low fidelity, the nature of the sounds blend together into a space where compression artefacts, phone mic’ing and high-tech sound design mingle fluently. From weeping wind harps to whispered confessionals to immense trance reveries, the result is a sound that eludes itself and forces the ear to expect some curious inversion around every corner.”

Couldn’t attempt to describe this any better – A sonic delight.

Review Reblog – Agnès Pe ‬- Para Ana (music video)‬

I came across Agnes Pe via Yeah I Know it Sucks some time ago and have followed her avant garde, witty and experimental work ever since.
“Wasn’t that a marvellous experience?”
Yes….and recommended too are her radio sound collages – Mitt Pate : )

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: ‪Agnès Pe ‬
Title: ‪Para Ana (music video)‬
‪Keywords:‬ devotional faux-utopian ambience devotional distorted e-stim malfunction muzak muzak-stun Lleida

It doesn’t happen everyday when two intriguing artists collaborate in a audio visual form, but when the odd moons align and such a special thing actually happens it’s for sure something to inform everyone about! Especially when the artists in question are ‪Agnès Pe & Jan Strach. The result is a spectacular experience in the shape of a excellent trip in music video form. Jan Strach heard ‘Para Ana’ by Agnès Pe and must have been incredibly inspired as the good man started to create the perfect visuals to the sounds. ‬

‪With his love for video games and the excellent trained ears for the bizarreness in the music spectrum, Jan Strach managed to make the track come alive. It’s a real trip, one that is best viewed…

Review Reblog – Wetwe Feat. Tatyana Kalmykova – Okoloreki

It’s been a strange few weeks and I haven’t been able to keep up with things here but I’m kicking myself that I missed this…It is a wondrous thing to listen to…

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Wetwe Feat. Tatyana Kalmykova
Title: Okoloreki
Keywords: electronic experimental abstract ambient bass music downtempo drone folk modern classical russian folklor techno Moscow

I don’t know much about this music as I evidently avoided all the information that came with it as it appeared through our illustrious request form, but from my own ears and mind I could make up that this was a bit of a holistic revelation in sound ways. It was a calming one, that featured the prominent voice of a certain Tatyana Kalmykova that seemed to sing among the walls of ruins, or perhaps a still standing church with great acoustics. Sometimes her voice gets bounced into a room in which it still feels warm, yet the acoustics feel flat, a bit as if the bigness gets suddenly beamed through some old time radio.

But it’s not all about Tatyana Kalmykova’s voice, it’s also pretty much…

Review Reblog – Izabela Dłużyk ~ Soundscapes of spring — A Closer Listen

Izabela Dłużyk’s Soundscapes of summer was A Closer Listen‘s favorite soundscape of 2016, and her latest album is just as remarkable. For this release, the artist has turned the dial back to spring, and we’re hoping (reasonably so) that the project will eventually become a quadriptych. The sounds here are as clear as any we’ve ever heard; […]

Reblog – Electric Elizabeth – FutureConeB

Today’s Discovery….

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Electric Elizabeth
Title: FutureConeB
Keywords: experimental, noise, video

Electric Elizabeth’s description of one of her actual music videos online sounds way simpler than what it deserves. She wrote “Some slowed down footage of water with one of my tracks over the top.” Of course that’s what it is, literally speaking, but imaginative speaking there is so much more to it. First of all the ‘one of her tracks’ that she added to the visual video is one that fits the water footage so extremely well, so much so that it might even be a bit frightening in how good it fits.

It’s like every bit of water flow, every wrinkle on top and in it is attached to the sounds generated by her track. It is as if the water knows exactly when to move and is triggered by her sounds, or that Electric Elizabeth had made the track…
