Stillborn Blues‘ 3rd album (originally released on cd-r in 2010) has the same old typical style : plaintive melancholy, detuned guitars, lo-fi recording, awkward playing muffled by the abuse of reverb and delay – all the ingredients for a low-profile soundtrack for lazy dreamers and restless losers in need of a pretext for spending the day watching the ceiling. Now that the music is on you can close the curtains and go back in your bed.
This was our first CD album, released in 1998. We have mixed feelings about it now…it was early days and we didn’t quite know what we were doing or even what we were trying to do.
If we were writing or recording these tunes now, we’d probably do everything differently. However – this is our history!
We don’t have a good file of the original artwork, so this is a new cover. There’s a small image of the original front cover included in the download.
Newest in the series of Toni Dimitrov’s collaborations is the album with the German artist Dominic Razlaff AKA DR. “Braunschweig Sessions” is the result from this collaboration, showing in front of the listener the infamous soundscapes of long form drone explorations of which DR is known for, merged with the subtle affection for field recordings infused ambience characteristic for Toni Dimitrov. Field recordings were provided by Toni Dimitrov, which are afterwards processed by DR, or layered with processed (granular synthesis) Ukulele and Synthesizer, arranged by both artists. Recorded on various destinations around Macedonian nature, this material is a reflection of a nice, subtle, calm and peaceful journey. With its ranges and spectrum from more subtle soundscapes to rawer and at times even unnerving sound experiments, this work is a direct presentation of the works of both artists, now connected in joint work. This is the first in the forthcoming series of collaborative works by these two prolific soundscape designers.

Following on from his slow burning self-released cassette “Unweather”, “lutra” is the first CD release by smallhaus (AKA South London based guitarist, electronicist, percussionist David Little). It expands his singular sound environment into a full-screen, full-colour and hugely enjoyable collection.
At times this almost feels like a tribute to the classic sounds of 70’s ambient – the choral textures, the infinite guitars, the synthesizers, but it’s done with a knowing wink and a contemporary layer of grit and dust. But mostly it’s an enveloping, immersive wash of precision moulded sound.

Wolf Wrams constantly explores human psyche, the emotion that arises from it and influences it making further steps towards heights and after that falling down into the abyss. Birth, life and death, and then another birth are the results of it. That is expected from Entropy, perhaps all Wolf’s songs are entropic.
These tracks were originally released through Naviar label on their Haiku collections. www.naviarrecords.comDiscordian Zen centres on the Rite of Not Knowing as its basic manifestation.
Performing the Rite of Not Knowing we enter into the realms of don’t know mind. Letting go of our time and opinions, doing what appears, we become more flexible, less attached. Discordian Zen represents a new Zen manifestation. While the Rite of Not Knowing represents Discordian Zen’s primary practice (open to anyone), there exist additional practices/manifestations. These include.
Discordian Zen has no temples, no location, no tax exempt status. It only seeks to manifest, transmit and expand the life-giving Chaos that constitutes our original nature, our original enlightenment.
Mercury is an album in wich the sounds used (improvisations with percussion metal plates and storms field recordings) work into a different perspective on dark ambient, Nieto hasnpt used melodies or ornaments to make the listener more “friendly”, It’s the transformes sounds that sustain the album and need attentive ears to be enjoyed.
“Artificial Thoughts” is the first Zzy‘s album. The story of this album is about two different realities: the humanity and the machine revolution. In other words, this work criticizes “the modern society” and their addictions. Do humans control the machine or does the machine control humans?
The technological revolution an its progress seems to us unbreakable and doesn’t show signs of ending.
Will we all be dominated by the machine? Is this our end?
“Artificial Thoughts” is struggling with those questions that have no concrete answer. However, the future looks dangerous and THE HUMANITY has to make decisions to survive in this game, against the endless evolution of the machine.
Audio Obscura performs Lap-top based electronics for the ears, haunting the wide spectrum’s of electro-acoustic music with a firm footing in the ambient realm. The sound also strays towards the experimental; musique concrète, idm with post-classical minimal leanings occasionally push through.
“I’m a self taught musician and sound mangler blurring the boundaries between analog and digital, acoustic and electronic, generative and human. I work in the present moment letting the music flow wherever it wants. My aim is to make music that is strange and experimental yet resonates on a deeper level.”
Subespai is the solo project of Mauri Edo, a Sydney musician born in Barcelona. Walking the line between ambient, noise and drone music, Subespai paints experimental soundscapes by mixing acoustic and electronic audio sources with effect pedals, field recordings and other gadgets.
Noisefever is known for his cheerful, dance verging on 70s disco beats from his previous releases and Love EP is no different.

“Recorder! Ricorda…” is the first release in Linear Obsessional’s cassette series, professionally produced cassettes in uniform designs by David (smallhaus) Little. The artists have worked to produce music specifically for this format.
Officina Errante’s piece is an audacious journey through a succession of sonic moods, all sounds recorded on a portable Zoom recorder- the results then manipulated, crunched and highlighted later- time compresses and expands infinitely….tinkles from a borrowed piano add melancholic interludes.. It’s almost like a succession of audio postcards or snapshots, each “movement” capturing moments of stasis or energy, urban clamour or rural tranquility the whole work flowing seamlessly with it’s own logic.
Officina Errante reworked his piece especially for the cassette format and Linear Obsessional is delighted to present this piece of 21st century musique concrete/sonic travelogue.
released June 22, 2018
All sounds, fields and instruments in this work have been sampled from recordings taken by me with the Zoom H5. I could take these recordings also thanks to Niina, Luke, Laura, and Michiko-san who let me play her piano all the time I wanted while I stayed at hers.

Written and produced by Officina Errante in Tokyo, Tonami and London.
