Creating music in collaboration with Wings of An Angel was like singing in front of a magic mirror that reflected to me only my beauty and mystery, leaving me surrounded with angel choirs and newly opened caves and pathways inside of my heart. And so many questions. I wondered: Is this really happening? And every song sparked more and more songs and poems, that are pouring out of me like clear clean waters from the belly of the earth, and from the center point of my soul. Perhaps we can know the holiness of others, to the extent that connecting with them, through an act of kindness, a prayer, or a song, brings back to us lost parts of our souls, awakening our hearts with love, and an awareness of our own preciousness. A holy man, or woman, in recognizing us, gives us back what is actually ours, inspiring us to sing our own songs, which then heal us. I have experienced a great awakening, an embracing love of all creation, and, in a way, have fallen in love with the reflection in the magic mirror. But rather than being entranced by a vision of self, I see within me the whole world. Because that mirror reflects a deep place inside of me. You could call it my soul, or even, where my soul meets all souls…and so I expand and contain within me ever increasing space, inner space in which to travel to hidden, private lands beyond the sight of the human eye””
51beats feeds himself with new music, being the discovery of new talented artist in the electronic-music-scene a primary objective. “PIEL” is the debut album from Alessio Bressan aka CRAYON MORTEL, a new rising star from Padua (IT). Sounds in “PIEL” somehow find their roots in house-music inspired by Relief Records, adding interesting dusty atmospheres and new sounds recalling artists such Lone and Shlohmo. “PIEL” is an electronic-idm full immersion release, with some banging dj-oriented tracks, see “They” and “Maihaus”…. “End” is a real gem. A new star is born, welcome CRAYON MORTEL, under 51beats !

В поисках новых форм, группа открывает следующую главу в сотрудничестве с электронными проектами: на “Cold Wave” представлены совместные работы и ремиксы с участием Haunt и Gnothi Seauton. В течении шести месяцев восемь песен и ремиксов превратились в единое целое, что и стало альбомом “Cold Wave”: скитания по холодным пустошам в попытках заново найти себя.
It’s been a while since our next artist graced the Kahvi shores – but after a gap of some three years Sebastien Marchal (aka. Workbench) is back with a fantastic ten track album!
Similar to his previous release ‘Synesthesia’, Goldfish is a work of electronic and ambient fiction, describing dreams in all the colours of a rainbow. As Colours was purely based on colours themselves, Goldfish paints a vivid picture just from the name of the track, followed by Marchals amazing audiio descriptions. Purely designed and constructed to paint a picture of sound, the tracks allow you to drift from reality to a much more pleasant place for a while.
Enjoy the first release of 2015 from Sebastien Marchal and see you next time for more fantastic audio works!
“With Lluvia Ácida, we have been making music together for 20 years, always from the Chilean Patagonia. In the beginning, in a context absolutely dominated by Rock and folklore, we made music inspired by the bands that we liked, all European and born of urban and industrial environments. Over time we understood that we had our own environment to inspire us, one in which technology is implemented in wild and lonely places, creating a contrast that is increasingly scarce in our country and the world.
We consider ourselves Explorers, because many of our works exhibited the results of an adventure or an investigation. So it was with albums like, “Tierra de Espectros” (2002), “Antartikos” (2005), “La Idea – Canto a la Federación Obrera de Magallanes” (2007), “Kuluana” (2009) and “Insula in albis” (2013).
“Zonas de Silencio” (Zones of Silence)” is the result of one of these adventures. This consisted of moving the act of Composing and Recording an album and a film outside the comfort of the studio, carrying portable technology to remote locations and abandoned premises of our environment, specifically in the communes of Punta Arenas and San Gregorio. In successive outings between the months of January and May 2014, we managed to record improvisations in places as dissimilar and evocative as a volcanic crater, a steamer rusting on the banks of the Strait, an abandoned lighthouse, a small and little known ranch, the structure of an old fridge, a coal mine, a beautiful cinema closed for more than a decade and a closed hospital. It was our way of merging ourselves with the landscapes that we love, in the shadow of the remains that were left at the edge of the Road of the Magellanes Story.
With “Zonas de Silencio”, we feel that we have contributed another vision of our Frontier Society, one which doesn’t glorify anyone in particular. We are only Ourselves and our Machines, forming a closed circuit but sensitive to the vibrations emitted by the solitary places.”
