Reblog – ICEBERG THE DRIFT on Sublunar Society

There are an awful lot of modular synthesizers and also releases out there at the moment, but Ch. Webster always manages explore subjects that I wish to find out more about and creates something sonically interesting with the technology….

 

 

You can find ICEBERG THE DRIFT here on Sublunar Society

Christine Webster

Iceberg/The Drift is a poetic and sonic tribute to the Larsen C Ice shelf rift in Antartica which caused during the summer 2017 the complete breaking of the oversized A-68 iceberg, drifting now in the open sea for years, maybe decades.

It’s the second sound work, i composed being directly inspired from a natural catastrophy, like i did with the Fukushima Days project in 2012.

With Iceberg/The Drift, i investigate the structural ice shelf perception and the vibrant life hidden inside it from an organic and abstract perspective, working only with modular synthesis.

The seven tracks are available for preview on Soundcloud and the official release is set to the 12 january 2018 on Sublunar Society

Review Reblog – Bana Haffar ~ Matiere

It’s only the beginning of the year and I already feel swamped with new releases which is a good thing : )

You can get the release here

 

More here –

a closer listen

All manner of gorgeous tracks occupy Bana Haffar‘s Soundcloud page, many unreleased.  The Los Angeles artist has been swiftly building her sonic resume over the past two years, and Matiere is her latest public declaration.  This follow-up to last year’s Alif 12″ sees her continue to expand the length of her tracks into something resembling mini-sets; “Endo” and “Exo” are dual movements of the same work, at eighteen total minutes a light yet satisfying two course meal.

Much of Haffar’s work is with patches (see photo), but she keeps the shifts to a minimum here, preferring to approach the movements in different manners rather than to alter their base sound.  As “Endo” begins, it sounds like the tuning of a bass guitar, demonstrating the range of the Make Noise modular synthesizer.  One knows a song is going to break out; one simply doesn’t know when.  The wait turns…

Review Reblog – ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ ~ A Book of Memories

A thing of beauty…

a closer listen

St. Petersburg’s ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ label has been responsible for some lovely packaging over the years, and A Book of Memories is yet another charmer.  The embroidered box (designed by Mila Berestovaya & Tim Six) contains cassettes from Sunmoonstar, YlangYlang and Jum-Jum, together forming a Russian tapestry as warm and welcoming as a fire.  Each is also available separately in download or tape form.  The set draws on folklore, yet couches the presentation in modern skins; each has a backstory that sounds like a page from a wondrous collection of fairy tales.

Open the box, and the stories begin to unfold.  Sunmoonstar‘s Картины (Paintings) tells of “an old book that was itself a story,” its pages turned by “the crystal clear winter air.”  The tones fall as gently as snow, twinkling like frost on “озеро (lake)”.  This gentle album honors the winter solstice, marking the longest day with the sweetest sounds:…

Review Reblog – Marlo Eggplant – Delayed

I was listening to this, this morning as part of my twitter thread of 2017 releases ( which you can see via the twitter feed here) and here it is, Today’s Discovery…

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marlo Eggplant
Title: Delayed
Keywords: experimental ambient electronic avant-garde drone noise Leeds
Label: orpus callosum distro

Delayed might be consisting of just two tracks, they are of such a allure that they might be the missing elements that you need in order to make your life complete. Maybe not, but let’s pretend just to make this write-up slightly more important. At first Delayed gives us the right crackle to give you a reason to shudder for a bit. It might give you the impression of a sweet hum and a attempt to growl quietly, but when the time is ready; you might raise a few neck-hairs when she plugs at specific places a few shockwaves of noise. With this the artist might warn you for what Delayed might give you on a later moment in time. But not too quick as Marlo Eggplant wants to trick her listeners into…

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…
