Leandro Ramirez: jaja sh

Leandro Ramirez: jaja sh

The murky and atmospheric noise-jazz of Leandro Ramirez’s album jaja sh represents the dark side of fusion. His loosely strung instruments play rough, sour chords and single-note riffs in a manner that traces its mode back to that of Ornette Coleman, the great jazz saxophonist. Even though there’s no saxophone heard here, there’s something in the way Ramirez’s melodies seem to move backwar... Read More »

Various Artists . APTEK Compilation

Various Artists . APTEK Compilation

The idea of travelling in sound was always close to our general idea of being interested in music – music understood not only as a purely artistic form of expression but also as something intangible yet bearing lots of sociological, philosophical and even political meanings. Not to mention that unexpected sounds are the only ones worth listening to. Probably. This compilation here is another... Read More »

Hindi + Riis . Trunking

As avid listeners surely has noted, exercises in improvised sound has, to an increasing extent, begun to bridge the gap between restrained tone clusters and the underworlds of grit and abrasion. But what is the nature of this ‘noise’ being adapted? If what we are dealing with truly is a case of adaptation, this might prove problematic, implicating the displacement of sound into new con...

Pesticide Organica + Noise Research . Splatter Cushion

In the centre, there’s mainstream music. Move out a couple of steps and you’re in alternative music. If the path you’re following is an electronic one, keep heading outwards and you’ll hit Fuck Buttons, Worriedaboutsatan et al, a little further and you’re in the outer orbit of Warp Records or Wotgodforgot’s more leftfield sessions. Somewhere here you cross the A... Read More »

Federico Barabino . (solo set III)

Federico Barabino . (solo set III)

Música en tiempo real, improvisada, compuesta momentáneamente casi sin ideas previas, sorprendente, fresca… Son algunas de las cualidades que brotan de este concierto en vivo. Nos invita a sumergirnos en sonidos cotidianos pocas veces escuchados de forma consciente y menos aun en contextos de conciertos. Una primera escucha intriga al oyente, haciéndolo dudar de si esta escuchando música... Read More »

LEZET . Ransid

“I participated in a compilation project of acoustic video game covers and it gradually turned me into a nostalgic bore to those around me ,setting the time back and reminding me of countless hours spent at playing the proots out of my very own indestructible c64 (got it in 1985,stopped playing it around 1994). The sensations and memories surged out with each and every game I revisited and i... Read More »

Free Unfold Trio . Ballades

Free Unfold Trio . Ballades

The Free Unfold Trio ventures, and we with them, where many would instead turn round and go back : to the edge of the unknown, to secret places where an underlying depth permeates every gesture; where it feels good to lose oneself now and again. On the razor’s edge, in the open air, wandering about between silence and what’s unplayed. Four stretched out ballads, their melodies in dotte... Read More »

Paulo Chagas . Acting-out

Paulo Chagas . Acting-out

Ambient music resulting from the crossing of three movements in neo classical flute piece and its own transformation by electronic means. The result appears somewhat neurotic and relaxing at the same time as a kind of catharsis or a semi-hypnotic solution for an alienated state of mind. paulo chagas – flute, electronics oficina sonora, peniche, portugal, jan 2010 If you enjoyed this post, ma...

Ido Govrin . Moraine

Ido Govrin . Moraine

‘Moraine’ by Ido Govrin is composed of exquisite sound qualities consisting of restrained gestures of simultaneous assembling and disassembling processes, slow though diligent creation holds a promise for total collapse, destruction, and as such, fills the listener with sweet sadness and longing. The album’s name, ‘Moraine’, indicates the working process but not just that. Moraine is a g... Read More »

This trio was first put together by Marc Fèvre, the active foreman of parisian dynamic wine and free music venue, l’Atelier Tampon, for the celebrations of legendary bassist Alan Silva’s 70th birthday. Ayler Records liked this, and decided to record and produce a CD with the group a few months later. The meeting between the two swedes, Joel Grip and Niklas Barnö, and the frenchman Di...

Activity Center . Lohn & Brot

Activity Center . Lohn & Brot

A favorite pairing returns. Something just so right about Beins and Renkel, the ratio of grit to tonal content, ringing to grinding, that tends to make their work simply sound good, which is half the battle. there’s a great deal of apparent space between the sounds, very wide open. Too, the pair is quite content to play vigorously, even with abandon, imparting the sense that they’re ac... Read More »

Kerim Safa . Subdermal

We use words to get in contact with people to explain what we think. But thoughts are abstract. We narrow them by using daily language to make everyone understand. If we were able to use pure thoughts (not words) to communicate, there would be a vague and chaotic communication process from the viewpoint of the “daily language user”. But on the other hand, there would have been a wider ... Read More »

A_dontigny, Michel F Côté . La notte fa

Drums & laptop. Then add a third ingredient to the first two: multiple samples. In La notte fa, Côté and A_dontigny have laid down sculptural music on a groove. Throughout these 10 pieces, the blender is on whip. This collaboration resembles an underwater stroll that ends badly. No foresight. They made this record on wasted time; the right thing to do. These days, wasting one’s time is wo... Read More »
