The Berlin-based improvising wind trio Trigger was formed in 2009 and works on creating a unitary sound of discrete sonic layers. Through the use of multiphonics, circular breathing, and other extended techniques, Trigger forges a music of gradual depth with sudden shifts in texture and mood. The current direction of the trio is long continuous masses of sound and utilizing site-specific resonances of performance spaces.

Inspired to the cult movie of the years 80 “Liquid Sky”, Jenseits gives to us this excellent musical work with a strong aesthetical punk, wave and post-punk character. A meticulous work of musical avant-garde full of vocal samplings, some taken by the original movie audio and some from the Italian audio, as well as quite a lot loop taken from official the original soundtracks. Full lenght Jenseits’s Liquid Skies video on Net Video page.
Nick Z-gibarian is an experimental electronic sound, avant-garde art-designer from Antarctica. All tracks for the “mule cartoon” album were originally recorded on analogue handmade synth (made in 1982) and two tape recorders. The style of this project can be called as x-perimental minimal (or like this – not danceable sound mutations). The general theme of this album is inspired by scientific works in the field of molecular researches and certainly, there is a lot of irony. The video “mule cartoon und la antena mix” is available at Net Video page.

Be excited for this one. Short and downright beautiful, two of my favorite musicians have joined forces for a wonderful and urgent piece of ambient IDM industrial brilliance. We have Ars Sonor, who has released on Effluvia many many times, and I am happy to say that she has a wonderful ability to create powerful collaborative efforts as well as her very personal and deep solo works. She executes excellently a great philosophy where working with other artists are concerned. Like blue and yellow merging to create green, she mixes her work with other artists perfectly, creating something unique to the styles of each artist respectively. Though M.Nomized, her present collaborator, deserves equal praise, for his music, while always electronic with great rhythms and also wonderful experiments with ambiance, is very malleable and hard to place, which is why his wonderfully crafted sounds work well in collaborative work as well. Enough said, the two were meant to work together, and this piece (and its very unique and radical remix) is a manifestation of fine mastering to create something that I can say comfortably is flawless. Ars Sonor’s art is certainly a cathartic breed of music. Always using very emotional synth ambiance and samples with great rhythm. All this moves about in great time while M.Nomized adds a great and ecstatic layer of dynamic with beats that just incapacitate you. Such an excellently attentive piece. And I can say safely that the work of M.N in this piece can definitely be responsible largely for the sweeps of feeling and otherworldy sounds as well. Really a versatile musician who has that fiery passion that I’m happy to say is bustling all over the place.
Coarse and edgy. The second part of the sound research of Rosati developed in “Fields 2”, leaves the heart deeply flayed with games of frequencies, saturated with love and rebellion. Enter in mind with the violence of expressivity and composition that characterizes the Roman artist, vacating the hearing through a sort of “ear cleaning” process, that opens the mind and leads to a meditative listening.
yosoyunotrotu new effort is a collaboration of three artists: quetzal contla |mexico| & krzysztof polaczenko |poland| & manuel escamilla |mexico|. this time project was inspired by the supernatural, strange activities of world and human. again music was made by showing no boundaries. every track is a story with different mood and genere. concept of each song was modified by all project members, trio fully worked on a whole album. we hope to invite more and more artists to next project works.

Sean is bringing xenharmonic bass back. But leave your expectations at the door because this record is a whole different vibe from the artist’s previous work. Here, spacious and ambient-influenced sounds fuse with odd-metered grooves and field recordings. On the electronics side, most of the album was produced under the limitation of just 2 synths and a bunch of drum machines.
A decidedly experimental trip through electronic dance music land, but from the words of Sean Archibald this is “the kind of record I thought about making for a long time – that is all.”
High-resolution liner notes and cover artwork were included for those who love something to read while they listen.

Linear Obsessional Recordings is delighted to release an album by the English experimental musician Weatherglass-
“Much of the music on Contractions for Ophelia was used as background to the birth of Weatherglass’s grand-daughter, hence the title. All the music originated on acoustic instruments, including plucked and bowed acoustic guitar, lapsteel guitar, harmonium, accordion, dulcimer and found objects. Cornwall and Sykes Reservoir feature as special environmental guests, and vocals were supplied by various waterfowl and a budgie.” – Weatherglass 2012

After a short break in May we start this month with another wonderful release by Saito Koji.
Similar as his former RB-release “Guide” “Again” consists of eight tracks, each 3 minutes long. And also the music hits a similar tone. Droning, distorted and dense guitar tones are swirling around. Every piece contains a short melodic loop, presented in a very uncommon lenth. But the pieces are so compact and dense that you don’t need a 30-minute repeating loop.
I strongly recommend headphones for a proper listening experience. And then just hit the repeat button.
