After 5 years spent exploring improvised and noise guitar, Xavier Mussat opened a parenthesis without his usual instrument. He recorded abstract sound ambiances to be used as background sounds to accompany the work of his students during the intuitive drawing classes he gives. Here simplicity prevailed : he used the cheap internal microphone of his computer and several objects (bowls, balls, crumpled paper, table, and finally a hint of prepared banjo), as well as remixed sounds taken from videos of snowy landscapes. Experimenting with the austerity of a minimalist aesthetic, he extracted 4 tracks from these raw textures and materials.
An endless ending.
Or object of change.
Tears; that run dry.Matti T says goodbye to music producing. Hopefully it’ll be just for some time. His talent is brilliant. But it seems that he emptied himself in emotional and musical processes to some extent. Please enjoy his so far final release at Phonocake, a sixty minutes mix of old and new tracks.
Take a pipette and drip a drop of water on your own palm. Transparent drop, full of invisible organisms, chemical elements, and personifications. Looking at the drop, thoughts are spinning. With the other hand rub the drop until the drop penetrates the skin and disappears. Hands need lots of water, but it’s enough for this time. Look at the lake…
The album was based on Lithuanian Chronicles, history and historical personalities, who might be connected to each in strange ways. While working on each track special attention was given to convey with sounds all the aspects of each historical personality and their influence on the history of Lithuania.
Phantoms EP by Spintribe will elude and distort your senses with the duo’s engaging take on pleasantly unpredictable and evolving progressive techno. Their smooth, dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes and deep, brooding pads give the EP a cloud nine feel while going hand in hand with their funky bass lines, stabby synths and rock-solid drums. All in all the EP has impeccable production quality, intriguing narrative, well-crafted sound design with playful changes and drops and will leave you staring up at the sky on those wind-swept, day time festival dance floors.
“The album De Sica is made using custom modular patching systems for synthesis and composition in which the analogue and the digital join hands: a continuous signal through patch cables performing analogue voltage control of an almost infinite variety of parameters and available hardware modules.
Many forms of music simultaneously existing locally and accessible in the global exchange are creating a continuum of events–geographically and historically–musical works that transcend discrete performances. Relatively differentiated musical objects (releases, labels, creators) or images of music can be ‘dequantized’ into a continuity of known and undiscovered structures. Music is continuous with everyday life from which it emerges.
The creative force on this album is sourced from personal stories and since it is part of an infinite music space, its undulations between music and noise are deeply interconnected with community, society, and politics.” (excerpt from liner notes on the USB-booklet)

Nuovo capitolo EPHEDROSO per il Laboratorio, per questi OTTOANNI passati sotto i ponti partecipano personaggi già visti e non…. che continuano a tracciare tracce per il LABORATORIO.
Affezionati che confermano la loro vista utopistica ed il loro pensiero sognante di un nonluogo, dove tutti producono, dove tutti ascoltano e soprattutto dove tutti condividono beandosi dei numeri e del piacersi sbrodolandosi addosso ad ogni costo.
Spero la storia vada avanti per millenni, anzi per MINUTI e secondi…..in pratica quelli che darete al vostro cervello per spingere PLAY e buttarvi in queste 12 TRACCE.

(The Acousmatic Musical Experience & The Uncanny)
Federico Schumacher Ratti (Editor)By Miguel Vera-Cifras.
The work we are presenting today is part of a process of research, creation and listening carried out by a team of researchers, collaborators, and auditors, under the direction of the faculty of Psychology at the Universidad Diego Portales. An initiative that involved numerous people, including those who ultimately worked on the final design of the written document, its translation into English, and on the features that extend this process beyond the text.
This represents an interdisciplinary work, published under a Creative Commons license, whose hybrid imprint includes a book, a recording, and a web presence. Three channels of action and circulation mutually nourish one other. A printed book, also in PDF digital version. A CD featuring the musical creation entitled “Lo Inquietante” (The Uncanny) by Federico Schumacher, who also serves as a researcher and editor of the book. And, finally, a playlist of acousmatic musical pieces by the same author, uploaded to the Pueblo Nuevo website, where they can be visited in a manner that is personalized and free. Hence, there are three ways in which the reader, listener and navigator are summoned jointly to read, listen and participate, either by introducing themselves to the theoretical discussions, by listening to the accompanying musical creation, or by immersing themselves freely in the playlist that extends the format of the book to unprecedented reconfigurations yet to come…
