karlheinz essl & agnes heginger . karlheinz essl – out of blue

On December 9th, 2010 I made my way to the Essl Museum in search of the lost spirit of Advent. It was there that Agnes Heginger and Karlheinz Essl performed for the first time as a duo, developing an improvised musical dialogue ‘out of the blue’. Somehow ‘out of the blue’ fit perfectly for me because I was looking for a way out of my melancholy December mood. Instead of cha... Read More »

Ramon Moro . Magma

Ramon Moro . Magma

8th May 1902: on all the Martinica the sky was obscured by a dark cloud that sprang from the volcano. It was impossible to see anything anywhere over a couple of meters. In the cathedral of the chief town Fort-de-France the congregation was ready to hear mass, when the darkness suddenly rushed on the city. In a moment, the curch was cleared out and all the believers frightened knelt down in the da... Read More »

Alexei Biryukoff . Talmenka

“This is my first album devoted purely to field recordings. Talmenka is the name of the river in Altai Region and a village that stands on it. It’s been a very inspiring place for me, surrounded by the woods, lakes and two rivers. So here is a bunch of tracks I recorded on my several trips there.

Anton Mobim . Floating Wood

Anton Mobim . Floating Wood

Calm and surrealist nothing is real in the composition which combines Improvisation & Field Recordings. For all the improv part Anton uses a handmade Prepared Chamber in wood, using its natural reverb, associated with many metal elements like springs and a home made calimba build with a trap of pigeon. This meditative sound art composition is contemplative, very languishing melody at the rate... Read More »

Philippe Lamy . Fil tendu

Philippe Lamy . Fil tendu

Philippe Lamy est peintre et musicien : dans ces deux domaines, la densité attendue résulte d’une stratification où apparition et disparition scandent un rythme de traversée, une sonorité à la fois contenue et en attente. Dans sa musique, des évènements divers ( captures sonores, sons retravaillés et transformés, dialogues hachés, voix, respirations, textures d’origines variées), s... Read More »

IsteronProject – Massimo Croce . Processo di immensificazione Individuale

Sì è soliti considerare individualismo come sinonimo di egoismo, ma di fatto il primo non necessariamente finisce per coincidere con il secondo. Ogni essere umano è un individuo, come tale è unico, conseguentemente è unica la sua visione del mondo. L’individualità, oltre ad essere naturale, andrebbe valorizzata. Noi non viviamo in un epoca di individualisti, ma in un epoca di egoisti. L’... Read More »

Das Rückgrat Der Nacht . Vier Jahreszeiten

Das Rückgrat Der Nacht . Vier Jahreszeiten

An (dark) ambient approach to the four seasons – awakening of spring, summer heat, autumn storm, winter numbness. The tracks are very varied, from drones and soundscapes, slow rhythms, piano improvisation to almost noise-like walls of sound. For this work I used (manipulated) nature recordings, analog and digital synthesizers, samples, my voice, the piano… Artwork by Martin Besig. If y... Read More »
