Krabatof . Sea of Trees

How these mystical artists find their way into the realms of JNN is beyond me sometimes, but behold; this âSea of treesâ will astound you. But before we talk of this album here, letâs share a previous review of âInsectâs Brainâ shared on Touching Extremes; âa little more than 31 minutes of very interesting âbruit artâ by Geneva-based Ludovic Guerry, who manipulates ânoises, field recordi...

Noveller : Red Rainbows

Noveller : Red Rainbows

[stream]http://www.imposemagazine.com/photos/2009/07/01-rainbow1.mp3[/stream] There was a time when a parcel by No Fun could be redirected to Jliat, unopened. It would be harsh noise. Not that I did: I would always open it and look what it was (thus finding the Dan Burke/Thomas Dimuzio release) out of sheer curiosity. But things have changed, perhaps since the arrival of Emeralds and their take on... Read More »

Vorwolf : Snake’s Eyes

Vorwolf : Snake’s Eyes

Its been a while since we last saw a release by Formed Records, who started out with a bunch of nice releases from the world of improvisation. Usually it involves some sort of electronics, but with Vorwolf the percussion is the central piece of equipment. Vorwolf is Micheal Vorfeld and Christian Wolfarth, who recorded in july, in a two day session, a bunch of improvisation, of which this is the ou... Read More »

Nicola Ratti : Ode

Nicola Ratti : Ode

[stream]http://modisti.org/releases/2009/5813.mp3[/stream] Italian Nicola Ratti’s music on Ode is subtle, with only vague structural outlines, a push in a certain direction and its up to the listener to join the rest of the dots. On the opening piece White Morning, the double bass just appears periodically unannounced for a few note run, like it’s making an important statement and then disappe... Read More »

He uses the analogue synthesizer Yamaha CS-40M, of which he first looked to found sounds that represent the soul, then abstracted these sounds without losing its character. He got an unconventional ... Read More »

LE CAR DE THON  Nos meilleurs Stockhausen + vernissage

LE CAR DE THON Nos meilleurs Stockhausen + vernissage

The good thing about Stockhausen is that he did it all. Not only was he further ahead than anyone else, he was also better than anyone else. Aus den Sieben Tagen is a big classic, yet rarely performed. “Classical” musicians despise it because a huge part involves improvisation, and improvisers do not consider it because it is “signed” music. What a regrettable mistake do all these people m... Read More »
