Circadian is the sixth full-length album under name Thuoom. The starting point was an hour-long live improvisation played in a cave (Ambient Evening 6, Parainen, Finland). During this event, Tuomo did an a cappella piece while Barque Sound Experiment (aka BSE) played synthesizers. While for most of the tracks there are no hints of synths, two tracks feature BSE sounds extensively. Nevertheless, Tuomo considers this his first a cappella full-length. The end result features more relaxed ambient sounds than the previous release, Fokus.
Instruments used on this record: Human voice alongside Arturia Microbrute Analog Synthesizer & Korg MS-2000, all echoing in a cave.
“‘Dance’ is almost as old as man on earth. The fetus kicks the belly of its mother with rhythm. Sweet woddles to the meter of the music with the first steps. School partie include typical dances. From child to the older adult, everyone is dancing.
It is in these terms that I understand Música Inmobiliaria’s work – parallel project of José Gallardo -, titled ‘Dance’, as part of human reality, ‘Who could say that they have never danced?’
Now, the currents of dance music are extensive and for all tastes. What summons us is electronic. A rich sound of featuring classic analog sounds, old-fashioned electro along with vocoder, there is glitch, synthesized strings pads, powerful sinusoidal basses, in sawtooth and squares, TR-808 sound and a robotic voice that says ‘I want to dance’… Why not do it? It even has a rumba to Jean Michel closing the album to enthuse you.
An album with taste and flavor, with textures that, in an imaginative way, present us with a different, experimental and successful dance music. All in good time with Música Inmobiliaria.”
Nel caldo estivo arriva un brivido dark ambient, un giro nei meandri di incalcolabili pazzie e bianche muri che assetati aspettano schizzi di sangue. In Your Ears ha nuovamente l’onore di pubblicare una traccia di Snowfade aka Marco Grosso, una delle migliori menti elettroniche del nostro paese e non solo, ascoltando Solitude lo potrete capire molto bene.
In the warm summer comes a dark ambient thrill, a ride in the meanders of incalculable madness and white walls thirsty waiting for blood sketches. In Your Ears is again honored to publish a track of Snowfade aka Marco Grosso, one of the best electronic minds in our country and not only, listening to Solitude you can understand it very well.
Get the nightmare
The theme “World Wide Storms” for Into The Rift Volume Two, was inspired by looking at the world around us, the events and issues that are facing us. Whether those events are political, social, environmental, or something else, everyone has been touched by some looming storm in front of us.
Part of the fun in making a theme like this was that it left the artists open to interpretation. It could be literal, metaphor, allegory, or any of other ideas that the artists had in mind. And there are fifteen very different perspectives on the storms in our world today.
But there is also a consistency to this release. It’s not just a collection of recordings thrown together. Each artist has contributed a work that fits within the theme, making for a recording that is more experience than it’s predecessor.
The seventeen tracks on Into The Rift Volume Two represent a lot of different thoughts on the world, right now. But, I am optimistic about one thing: this is a work that will transcend current events.
SoundChaser has been fascinated with the concept of transformation. Especially with the concept of taking a single piece of source audio and transforming it into something completely different, something that is un-recognizable from it’s original form. This release is exactly an example of such a transformation.
Starting with a public domain reading of Henry David Thoreau’s Woof of the Sun, SoundChaser took the recording and mangled, manipulated, chopped up, layered, and reassembled it into a work that is completely different from what it started off as. And, after completing transformation he found that he couldn’t leave well enough alone, and further modified two of the layers, which produced a second version that is nearly identical and yet different from the first version.
So, Drone Thoreau One version 1 & 2 form the main listening portion of this release. However, here is where the fun begins: SoundChaser has decided to go a step further by including all the original stems
(layers) of the tracks used to create this release. There are two reasons for this:
SoundChaser believes some people might enjoy listening to the individual stems on their own (especially the Drone stem, which gets mixed into the background in the main tracks), and
He wants others to take the tracks and create their own works. Fold them, spindle, mutilate them, add beats, add other instruments, make them into something else. The less recognizable, the better.
Scott Lawlor is a sonic explorer of great skill and knowledge. For this work he found a passage in The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod by Henry Beston that was appealing to him and set out to interpret it as an audio work.
This work is comprised of three pieces, the titles of which are each a passage from the book: “…they fear, rather, the energies and creatures to whom night gives power.” and “Yet to love thus, to know only artificial night is as absurd and evil as to know only artificial day.”
Stylistically this work is reminiscent of 1970’s Klaus Schulze recordings, like Timewind.
Dominic Razlaff (aka DR) returns to CerebralAudio with a new release: This Way.
Dominic’s minimal approach to drone music makes for excellent listening any time: driving, or studying, working or meditating.
This Way is a statement about music, and particularly drone works. He is sticking close to the original Brian Eno inspired concept of drone works: they should be minimal in terms of structure and movement. They have the capacity to both be listened to and ignored at the same time. Ambient music by it’s very nature, is an audio experience that enhances the environment.
The album is conceived as a three-part cosmic trip including a take-off, learning and final landing.
Drawing from his deep and prolonged listening of composers like Krzysztof Penderecki, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jonny Greenwood, Brian Eno e John Cage, MiDiLe creates and assembles sonic landscapes of different nature
Back with the announced full length album by Matti T from Finland, slightly increasing pace and going into Sunday chillaxing mood and offering soft drops and various film like atmospheres. We look back and try to look forward, inbetween worlds. NetlabelDay Release 2017. July 14th
On December 24th, 2007, Gregory “Tha Silent Partner” Davis released the first volume in what would become an enduring series of music release that altogether has accumulated an incredible 100,000+ downloads. In our little Creative Commons licensed / Netlabel sphere of music, those kinds of numbers are hard to come by. If, as an artist, you’re getting numbers like that, you’re doing something right. Of course, TSP is. It’s difficult for a music producer to develop “a sound”, yet, that’s exactly what he’s done.
Act 7 continues the legacy with ten solid grooves for funkin’… or whatever… download… turn it on… bump it loud… enjoy.
Ever since I first heard Act 1 on Jamendo and decided to include “No Mas” on “netBloc Volume 11 (The Raw and the Cooked)”, it was clear to me that Tha Silent Partner was a music artist that I wanted to keep up with. I was later thrilled when he showed interest in having his music being released at blocSonic It’s been a pleasure and an honor to be able to help spread the word about TSP over the years! It’s also incredible that it’s already going on ten years since he kicked off Platters the Platters series. I look forward to the next ten. TSP, thank you, sir!
Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня “What If?” в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.
