This is a mini-LP of mine from a couple years ago called September. As I listen now, what strikes me about this song is the dreamy, woozy quality of the shoegaze-esque songs present on this collection. In my opinion, the ubiquitous nature of these textures (broken up by a couple of harder-edged tracks so not to cross the line into monotony) makes for a consistent and singular listening experience, from which many ideas and themes can be inferred.
As an act to capture the undefinable, as deep as consciousness could trespass.
Like a concrete proof of another life form, hidden behind the veil.
Away from everyday perception, as far as sound quest could transgress.
Kicking around your psyche as a risky journey not suitable for satisfied minds.
An abstruse voyage to a distant place but still somewhere in this universe, plenty of synthetic excitements.

Fernando Laub (aka flaub) is a composer and visual artist native from Buenos
Aires Argentina and Austrian origin who designs and builds his own musical
instruments. With the aim of compiling sonic substance and creating new devices
from old industrial machines and recycled scrap, he spent several years living
into an abandoned factory reconditioned as a sound laboratory. Among those
indoor quests he use to travel around the world documenting sonic and visual
material from jungles to urban situations. This way his music not only describes
pictures, it will transport you to a sort of surreal scenarios, images that are
quite difficult to define.

This album of mine, Satiety, I think is really good for two reasons: 1, each track to me is really great at capturing and even painting a certain mood. Each track is its own world. And yet, it is also incredibly cohesive considering that, as the whole thing seems to combine to form a singular statement, whatever that may be. The largely abstract and open nature of my instrumentals allows the listener to draw his or her own conclusions.
“On vous parle de la prison improvised music out of jail”
At the initiative of Prelude [coordination center of cultural activities in prison] we conducted a free music workshop in prison [Établissements de la plaine de l'Orbe, Switzerland] from August 2010 to September 2011. These recordings are some of it traces. We decided to make it public, it is a way to draw some lines between the outside and the inside, and perhaps a way of speaking from an excluded place, to another excluded place.
The workshop [2 x 3 hours per week for musicians or not ] focused primarily on an ensemble dynamic, an improvisation language constantly renewed according to the participants and the issues raised by the collective experience. While some tracks on the disc are relatively arranged, others are absolutely raw.
Subsequently, we have proposed to artists in freedom to transform, remix or freely create songs from recordings made with rudimentary equipment in the year of the workshop. We feared that the result becomes very heterogeneous, it actually became, but it seems in retrospect to be a quality of this disc and represent in a meaningful way the whole project.

Alexei Borisov and Anton Mobin met in Paris in 2009 with their duets (Astma & Crash Duo) and have been working together since that first concert, published on H.A.K. Lo-Fi Record. At each passage of Alexei in Paris, collaborations start again and take different forms: common organization of concert, live sessions broadcasted on Radio Libertaire or on the webradio KKWNE, also the trio project with Olga Nosova, as evidenced the album “Manifeste des 22″ recorded live in Trashvortex and published by the Italian label Lonktaar.
In March 2013, Alexei Borisov and Anton Mobin decided to join their forces and ideas in studio and record “Try To Crawl Out Of It” , their first opus operated in duo published in early 2014 on the Polish label Mathka.
“Q” released by Zeromoon is the first live performance played in duo between Alexei Borisov and Anton Mobin. Other studio collaborations are underway as a promising recording session with Julie Rousse, Olivier Di Placido, Aka_Bondage, Ayato and Michel Kristof recorded in Paris last summer 2013.
Performed at “Q#2014″ on 11th February, 2014 at Instants Chavirés, Montreuil (France).
