Peter Holy – s/t

[valeot 016]

Peter Holy

“s/t”

After many years in the making, and following an obscure lo-fi CDR release about ten years ago, this is Peter Holy’s first solo album, this time without materializing physically (the music, not Peter).

Peter plays piano and sings, accompanied by Tupolev bandmates Alexandr Vatagin (cello, recording, mixing, mastering) and David Schweighart (drums). The record consists of 9 pieces, 2 of which are re-recordings from songs from the old CDR, one is a reworking of a piece by Tupolev and one piece was also used in a song on Alexandr Vatagins album Serza. The remaining 5 pieces are completely new.

Juan Antonio Nieto – ISOLATED

[PT044]

Juan Antonio Nieto

“ISOLATED”

Isolated is the logical continuation of Static, the previous record that Plus Timbre release in 2015.
Isolated base remains in the idea of combining percussive sounds with dark drones. If for Static sounds were recorded in public spaces, in this new record all the sounds have been recorded in my own home, pens, knives, brushes, and any subceptible objet, beaten or rubbed over different surfaces, glass, wood, metal, sand in order to get a unique sound (avoiding the can add effects) this sounds combined with each other, were able to form a special feeling. Drones were created to finish adjusting topics. The result is an album that can be heard both environmental manner or in a deeper listening. The multiple sounds have been treated one by one, in EQ and volumes.

почему коммутатор молчит – топорная работа

почему коммутатор молчит

“топорная работа”

About:
«Третий альбом писался довольно долго. От него отсекались куски, которые в итоге перекочевали в анонсирующие ЕР “это нужно видеть” и “машина”. Титульные песни будут на “топорной работе”, остальные держались в секрете до последнего.
Как всегда, незримо участвовал Рома Белоусов, основатель проекта, которому в день выхода альбома, 26-го ноября, исполнилось бы ровно 40 лет. Следующий альбом будет содержать песни Р. Белоусова и совместные с А.Марабяном.»

Credits:
Азат Марабян — тексты и музыка, гитара, ксилофон (4)
Валерия Марабян-Ларина — вокал (4, 10)
Евгений Литвинов — гитара, сведение и мастеринг
Михаил Климов — калимба (4)

Alejandro Albornoz – Fluctuaciones 2

[pn113]

Alejandro Albornoz

“Fluctuaciones 2”

In addition to the publication of the album “Fluctuaciones” (“Fluctuations”) in its physical CD version (pncd11), two online albums are included that can be accessed on the Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel website, “Fluctuaciones 2” (pn113) and “Fluctuaciones 3: Live electronics” (pn114).

In regards to these albums, the time span covered is around 12 years of production alongside the pieces for the CD, several of which were revised during 2016. Although the new ones were completed in 2015, they form part of a collection of works in course, so I understand them as related.

In the case of “Fluctuaciones 2“, this includes 14 additional acousmatic works, all pieces composed between 2004 and 2012 and distinct from those included in the physical CD. This collection is irregular, there are several works of interesting execution and others that are either studies of timbre and structure or are exercises acousmatic composition. I have decided to publish this collection for a number of reasons: it is a personal gesture to close a stage as a sound creator, it allows me to recognize the constancy and seriousness with which I have approached composition in the genre and makes available to students, artists, researchers and interested public parties a corpus of work that could be of interest for analysis, study, and discussion.

Strunkdts – We All Star In Hell

[SE076]

Strunkdts

“We All Star In Hell”

The random moments when its remembered to press record are the junctures captured and reworked into the raw body slowly defining itself as ‘Strunkdts’.

Isolated on the western coast of Australia, ‘Strunkdts’ channels memories of rave, punk and broken hearts as eulogies for a dying and insane world. The trash, the chaos, the lies and the uncertainties that constitute a whole lot of nothing are the vessels thru which the work navigates.

A haggard, paranoid projection of romantic days past into the ever present unknown. “We all star in hell” are one shots and teasers that were abandoned rather than finished.

Basic Elements – Happy Singles

[CAEL0004]

Basic Elements

“Happy Singles”

About Happy Singles

The release of Happy Singles by Basic Elements marks a couple of firsts for CerebralAudio: the first release from Basic Elements, and the first downtempo release on CerebralAudio. It’s also the second release available in 24bit FLAC encoding.

Basic Elements has produced a set of pieces that are like listening to a great blues singer, in a modern setting. There aren’t any blues vocals or samples used in this release, but it is the mark of a great artist that can transform modern sounds, and carry the essence and spirit of past works into a modern setting.

Happy Singles focuses on relationships, and the pain and hurt they can bring out in people. Those are essentially blues themes. But in the hands of Basic Elements, these come out more as an R&B style, with a modern groove. The title is somewhat ironic, but a true statement about people that are more happy when they are single.

The title “Happy Singles” is also a double-entendre: all of the tracks on this release could be singles. They could be released as single tracks, but they take on a new level of poignancy when listened to as a whole. This is another mark of the magic that Basic Elements brings to this style of music, and something that CerebralAudio is proud to release.

Lingua Lustra – Slow Time

[brhnet45]

Lingua Lustra

“Slow Time”

“Slow Time” grew out of some slow arpeggiating tracks, of which one remained, I looked at some unreleased tracks, tracks that I couldn’t place yet and all came together in a picture as one. Experimenting with classical influences, as I do more often, mixing it with psychedelic and drone elements. The result I think exists in its own bubble, I hope it gives the listener a different sense of time. -Lingua Lustra

Regenerated Headpiece – Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE

[BSXE0017]

Regenerated Headpiece

“Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE”

Can you believe that today we drop our 17th Xtended Edition release? Word… this time around we introduce blocSonic listeners to the completely unique and dope sounds of Regenerated Headpiece (or RHP).

So who are RHP? Well, they’re a hip-hop hybrid musical outfit that I first discovered while doing work for SLAMjamz back in the early 00s. As the story goes with a couple other blocSonic artists that you’ve come to know… I designed covers for a few of their digital releases. When I first heard them I was immediately impressed by their sound. It’s one that’s really hard to pin down because it’s so unique to them. However, their story goes back a little further. They first burst onto New York City’s live music scene in the late 1990s and have been compared to recording artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to “Weird” Al Yankovic. Their core members are producer/MC Phon-X (a.k.a. Headsnack), lyricist Shred Lexicon, and DJ Exfyl. Other members of the Regenerated Headpiece family include DJ Sykopath, producer/MC Old Yist, and various session musicians.

Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE is a re-release of their collection of rarities that included remixes by RHP friends and fam. For our Xtended Edition we also brought on blocSonic fam to remix a few joints! RHP also added a couple extra bonus cuts to make this a 3 Disc set!

The collaboraters involved in this project are extensive… musicians, producers, DJs & singers… the RHP extended fam include… Allison Breunig, Bass Killah, Brash, DJ Mockstar, Don Q, ICBM, ILLUS, MenAnt, Milkdrop, Phashara, Phon Juan, Rich Lupes, Slim Waites, Sneaky Pete, Steve “SG the Producer” Garcia, Taylor Jordan & Venomous 2000. If that’s not enough… blocSonic fam also represented… C-Doc, Cutside, Donnie Ozone, dustmotes, The Impossebulls, mGee, Mported Flows & Pot-C!

A very special thanks to Headsnack, Shred Lexicon and DJ Exfyl for being part of what blocSonic does. I’ve long been a fan and am thrilled to have you guys on board… welcome to the blocSonic fam! Mega thanks also goes out to everyone involved!

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Cousin Silas – Transformations

[CAAM0008]

Cousin Silas

“Transformations”

Cousin Silas returns with his fourth release on CerebralAudio: Transformations. This release centers on shifting minimalist patterns that constantly evolve and transform from beginning to end. These pieces were composed using ebow for the loops and pads and guitar for the patterns that subtly shift and change over time, creating a hypnotic soundscape for the mind.

This release is as abstract as several other releases on CerebralAudio, including The Sky Road. It’s a calm and serene set of pieces that have an implied rhythm, while using an actual percussive instruments, or specific elements within them. Whether it’s music you need for meditation, or to help you focus on a task, this is the work for you. Indulge yourself in eighty minutes of the constantly evolving and transforming soundscapes of Cousin Silas.

NOTE: For the first time we are offering 24bit, 48Khz FLAC encoding of this release!

Daniel Robert Lahey – Iterations

[CACL0002]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“Iterations”

Daniel Robert Lahey makes his third appearance on CerebralAudio with Iterations. The idea behind much of this work is based on the repetition of phrases while subtly changing them over time. It’s the basis of what became known as minimalism in the hands of composers like Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

But, with the iterative nature of these works is apparent, Daniel couldn’t leave could just write a set of derivative works that mimicked contemporary composers. Instead he reaches back into the world of serialism for a couple of these compositions. The density and complexity of these works belies their roots in the concept of minimalism.

It’s the sharp contrast between modern composition styles that makes this work interesting. Daniel has found a way to move between what many would consider to be ambient music and the most challenging classical music without finding any lines. He is an explorer of all ages of music.

Vinze is dead – Corse1993′

[376]

Vinze is dead

“Corse1993′”

A curiously named guest artist again for October. Vinze is dead could be the sign of depression or sentimentality, and the 12 track album ‘Corse1993’ twists and turns in all directions, giving you a nostalgic vibe similar to Boards of Canada, with subtle sounds your ears yearn to hear, to detailed drum tracks – nothing too heavy, just delicate percussion to complement the otherwise sublime tracks.

Perfect for that autumn afternoon in the last of the warm sunny days, or enjoying the crisp approaching winter (as we do here in Finland). All tracks have some great feelings and warmth, but a couple stand out for this fan: Veshangree (very BOC influenced) and Theme from pursuit of happiness which reminds me of ‘Nannou’ by Aphex Twin.
