“For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within a dream.”
Alan Parson’s Project “Tales of Mystery and Imagination”, a voice-over narration by Orson Welles

a “walk” through the dark woods of a heart’s mind…
“Nada es para todos” use the same procedures than my prior “orchestral albums” : piling up layers of overdubbed lines that I composed in real time as I play all the instrument with the spontaneus interaction tipically found in free jazz, without any prevous ideas about the melodies, rhythms, harmonies, styles, etc… The only exception is track 3 which is a collage of a melodica track cut in 3 parts and stack up like a fake counterpoint in the Frank Zappa’s xenocronicity style.” Claudio Nunez
the first pyr release of 2012 is from tomas gris a free improviser based in madrid who is working on developing a sound language that combines his love of dada, art brut, and the cobra art movement with his interest in philosophy, semiotics and post-modernism. he performs alone and with ad hoc ensembles primarily playing reeds and amplified objects, but also incorporating various percussion and acoustic instruments into his pieces.
his first album for pan y rosas is a solo improvisation recorded in 2011 in which he plays alto saxophone, harps, cassette, and objects. throughout the piece he employs quietness and stillness; flutters, pops and breaths; cymbals and tones. his playing is deliberate and of the moment, without beginning or end. make sure to get it here.
A cloud moving “unspectacularly beautiful”, surrounding the semicircular, close to the sickle shape, deeply glaring in the moon, pulling layers of purity in a mystical theatre of time traveling, sending the aetherical stream from India across Norway to Istanbul, in the obscure but not dark, but artificial and subtle, “both frightening and beautiful”(GH).
review by magicore:
another smokey album for your earz. we getting blitzed here at the magi today. hardcore kicks meet electro dub bass wobbles and breakcore style sampling combine to form pogohm “herb is a plant”. arnaud (pollux and pogohm) said he wanted to make “dubcore”, dub atmosphere and hardcore techno/gabber energy. i think he achieved his goal, and even if he didn’t, it came out great. download it, pretend its a brand new 7” from a dusty record store, wash your hands, roll a spliff, and press play. your work is done.
project 4 is the most creative and distinctive release to come out of the golden gates of faturenet recordings to date. each track has been made with the same four samples and yet the artists have managed to create a diverse array of dazzling tracks and utilise the samples to their very best.
if you are going to download one release this year, make sure it’s this one!
“2” is set of tracks that signify a shift in my perspective on the analogue aesthetic. it moves from the somewhat transparent experiments of my debut album ‘exhibit cube’ (download here) into a more inwardly pointing exploration of how analogue machinery can be used to express human emotion.
the sound is active, affirming and in some places a little spiritual, attributes i akin to “kensho” a japanese word roughly translating to ‘a brief glimpse of enlightenment’ i decided not to call the ep kensho after meditating on the matter.
“My bootleg” is a recording of laura mura’s concert at Alkestis theatre (Cagliari, november 6th, 2011), so small, yet perfect for her show. she had arranged her good music with few instruments, many toys, a great deal of wizardry…
os dois registos de “sobre carris” foram gravados no mesmo dia – um de manhã, outro à tarde – com um telemóvel (se x8), em mono.
“eléctrico” conta-nos uma viagem da graça até à estrela, em lisboa, nesse meio de transporte tão pitoresco.
“entre estações” contrasta com o registo anterior ao capturar um momento de uma viagem lisboa – porto, no conforto (quase estéril) de um comboio inter-cidades.
Illumination In D-Minor – is an ambiguous release. On one hand – it’s an aerial trip in the skies, into the abyss of space, on the other – it’s an immersion into yourself. Bright and fascinating sound makes you want to listen to it over and over. And each time you’ll find something new and absolutely new thoughts emerge.
Happy Friday the thirteenth. Ionosonde recordings brings you three thirteen minute tracks with one, one minute track. 13 on the 13th. Good Luck!
A bird is different from a elephant. So is a octopus from a wolverine. Species tells the difference apart from animals and insects alike, but there are similarities that persists throughout the animal kingdom. Take the eyes for instance. Have you ever seen a person or animal with only one eye? No, every living organism has two or more eyes, four extremities, one mouth, and two ears. You see, every animal on this earth, even though looks and acts differently, has similarities. This is the concept of Telegraphy’s “Species” album. Every sound is reminiscent from the previous but is eerily distinctive, just like two or more eyes and so on.
“Species” by Telegraphy, is a slow dub techno, minimal/ambient album. These beat-less tracks, transports us to a world where unknown lifeforms dwell. Unknown but not different from us. All of the tracks titles in this album, your probably wondering, sound kind of strange or desolate, thats because they are names of undiscovered species. No, you won’t find then in any scientific journal any time soon. These species are not from this earth, they are names of alien beings. Greys, Reptilians, Mothman, call them what you will. They all have two eyes, two arms, and two feet. Just like us, different but the same.
“Species” by Telegraphy, different but the same.
No-Source is pleased to ring in the New Year and embrace 2012 with a release from Mark Ge. Mark Ge is a musician and writer from the North-Eastern United States. His first EP includes a collection of lo-fi bedroom recordings and one studio recording. Most of “Your Blues Are Rough” is just Mark Ge singing and playing guitar. The lo-fi quality really brings the listener and these tracks to a more intimate setting. “Brother” and “The Other Side” share a similar aural joy found in early tape recordings from the Mountain Goats. “Stephanie” on the other hand is eerily similar to Casiotone For The Painfully Alone with drum machine and simple synth melodies. “The Road”, the only studio recording on this release, sees a more polished sound and additional instrumentation from Mark. Additional production on tracks 1-3,5-6 by Tim Dwyer.
