“In This Morbid Dream, I Had A Direct Encounter With A Slow Motion Dissolution Into Nonexistence”
On that unforgettable night, I had slept maniacally and dreamed that I am no longer myself; I was dying slowly, slowly, like winter’s lazy snowflakes. In that morbid dream, I had encountered a slow motion dissolution into irreversible nonexistence. It was the most frightening experience I’ve ever had. To lose yourself is finite. We conduct our lives in the same way we manage our loves – dysfunctionally – thinking it’s everlasting and will never change or come to an end. But, like a fly in the ointment, it will sooner or later pass out, pass away, dissolve little by little or swiftly… And guess what? We can’t choose! So, like a broken VHS cassette which no longer functions properly but still works in slow motion mode, we eventually fall into the void of naught … I will never forget how my whole life had been shown to me like in some kind of a cheap Flickr slideshow effect. I had seen my failures and triumphs with clogged tears in my eyes, not only because of the nostalgia they had unsurprisingly awoken in me, but also because they had had exactly the same specific gravity. Then, it has occurred to me that life is a cold neutral mechanism, in which no event has no more or less value than the other. And by the end of it, be it bitter or bittersweet, nothing of the last remaining relics of my once unfathomable gang of friends shall survive. All will perish, all will wash away with the timeless winter rain.
Italian electronic music composer, Daniele Ciullini, is back to EdP – Editora do Porto with a full album of “remains”.
In this thought provoking work you’ll find the vestiges of a plausible life story, left in the open, to the winds…
Kahvi welcomes guest artist Weedie with a six track ep entitled ‘Tep Sava Galvos’ (meaning Between my head in Lithuanian).
Slightly underground and less mainstream than the last release from Tetarise, Weedie looks towards the minimal and eccentric side of electronic music with subtle beats and melodies, yet nice analog sounds such as the basses on Ego Cogito Cogitatum.
Influences are obviously artists such as Autechre and perhaps a hint of Arovane, and even some Solar Fields, which makes for an interesting listening experience to many a Kahvi fan.
Track of choice for me would be Cukrus Chalvai Atrodo Originaliai Saldus (in English Sugar seems to halva originally sweet) with its mellow groove and nice sounds. The last non-English trackname is Eik ir motyvuokis which means Go and motivate (yourself)
far away glimmer in the distance,
surprised by emerging times.
With a rework of a jazz song as well as with an ambient, a 4-to-the-floor and a DnB track Blackberry crosses various stages of his creative musical work of the last year. In well known high sound quality longing sounds weave far and crunchy field recordings, bells, clocks, sea water, all is in. The time is running, good music accompanies us.
VKRS Netlabel Present Marco Mestichella – Mixtape
London based artist originally from Italy, producing original music since 2011, fusing hints of Downtempo/Trip Hop with Retro-Pop and Cinematic sounds.
“Three timeless compositions that come in a idiosyncratic low fidelity fashion, utilizing glitchy resonant delays and general midi sound aesthetics as sonic carriers for TRANS ATLANTIC RAGE´s visions of an avant jazz concept album.”- Lo-Fi/Sci-Fi
