Strunkdts – We All Star In Hell

[SE076]

Strunkdts

“We All Star In Hell”

The random moments when its remembered to press record are the junctures captured and reworked into the raw body slowly defining itself as ‘Strunkdts’.

Isolated on the western coast of Australia, ‘Strunkdts’ channels memories of rave, punk and broken hearts as eulogies for a dying and insane world. The trash, the chaos, the lies and the uncertainties that constitute a whole lot of nothing are the vessels thru which the work navigates.

A haggard, paranoid projection of romantic days past into the ever present unknown. “We all star in hell” are one shots and teasers that were abandoned rather than finished.

Basic Elements – Happy Singles

[CAEL0004]

Basic Elements

“Happy Singles”

About Happy Singles

The release of Happy Singles by Basic Elements marks a couple of firsts for CerebralAudio: the first release from Basic Elements, and the first downtempo release on CerebralAudio. It’s also the second release available in 24bit FLAC encoding.

Basic Elements has produced a set of pieces that are like listening to a great blues singer, in a modern setting. There aren’t any blues vocals or samples used in this release, but it is the mark of a great artist that can transform modern sounds, and carry the essence and spirit of past works into a modern setting.

Happy Singles focuses on relationships, and the pain and hurt they can bring out in people. Those are essentially blues themes. But in the hands of Basic Elements, these come out more as an R&B style, with a modern groove. The title is somewhat ironic, but a true statement about people that are more happy when they are single.

The title “Happy Singles” is also a double-entendre: all of the tracks on this release could be singles. They could be released as single tracks, but they take on a new level of poignancy when listened to as a whole. This is another mark of the magic that Basic Elements brings to this style of music, and something that CerebralAudio is proud to release.

Lingua Lustra – Slow Time

[brhnet45]

Lingua Lustra

“Slow Time”

“Slow Time” grew out of some slow arpeggiating tracks, of which one remained, I looked at some unreleased tracks, tracks that I couldn’t place yet and all came together in a picture as one. Experimenting with classical influences, as I do more often, mixing it with psychedelic and drone elements. The result I think exists in its own bubble, I hope it gives the listener a different sense of time. -Lingua Lustra

Regenerated Headpiece – Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE

[BSXE0017]

Regenerated Headpiece

“Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE”

Can you believe that today we drop our 17th Xtended Edition release? Word… this time around we introduce blocSonic listeners to the completely unique and dope sounds of Regenerated Headpiece (or RHP).

So who are RHP? Well, they’re a hip-hop hybrid musical outfit that I first discovered while doing work for SLAMjamz back in the early 00s. As the story goes with a couple other blocSonic artists that you’ve come to know… I designed covers for a few of their digital releases. When I first heard them I was immediately impressed by their sound. It’s one that’s really hard to pin down because it’s so unique to them. However, their story goes back a little further. They first burst onto New York City’s live music scene in the late 1990s and have been compared to recording artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to “Weird” Al Yankovic. Their core members are producer/MC Phon-X (a.k.a. Headsnack), lyricist Shred Lexicon, and DJ Exfyl. Other members of the Regenerated Headpiece family include DJ Sykopath, producer/MC Old Yist, and various session musicians.

Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE is a re-release of their collection of rarities that included remixes by RHP friends and fam. For our Xtended Edition we also brought on blocSonic fam to remix a few joints! RHP also added a couple extra bonus cuts to make this a 3 Disc set!

The collaboraters involved in this project are extensive… musicians, producers, DJs & singers… the RHP extended fam include… Allison Breunig, Bass Killah, Brash, DJ Mockstar, Don Q, ICBM, ILLUS, MenAnt, Milkdrop, Phashara, Phon Juan, Rich Lupes, Slim Waites, Sneaky Pete, Steve “SG the Producer” Garcia, Taylor Jordan & Venomous 2000. If that’s not enough… blocSonic fam also represented… C-Doc, Cutside, Donnie Ozone, dustmotes, The Impossebulls, mGee, Mported Flows & Pot-C!

A very special thanks to Headsnack, Shred Lexicon and DJ Exfyl for being part of what blocSonic does. I’ve long been a fan and am thrilled to have you guys on board… welcome to the blocSonic fam! Mega thanks also goes out to everyone involved!

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!

Cousin Silas – Transformations

[CAAM0008]

Cousin Silas

“Transformations”

Cousin Silas returns with his fourth release on CerebralAudio: Transformations. This release centers on shifting minimalist patterns that constantly evolve and transform from beginning to end. These pieces were composed using ebow for the loops and pads and guitar for the patterns that subtly shift and change over time, creating a hypnotic soundscape for the mind.

This release is as abstract as several other releases on CerebralAudio, including The Sky Road. It’s a calm and serene set of pieces that have an implied rhythm, while using an actual percussive instruments, or specific elements within them. Whether it’s music you need for meditation, or to help you focus on a task, this is the work for you. Indulge yourself in eighty minutes of the constantly evolving and transforming soundscapes of Cousin Silas.

NOTE: For the first time we are offering 24bit, 48Khz FLAC encoding of this release!

Daniel Robert Lahey – Iterations

[CACL0002]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“Iterations”

Daniel Robert Lahey makes his third appearance on CerebralAudio with Iterations. The idea behind much of this work is based on the repetition of phrases while subtly changing them over time. It’s the basis of what became known as minimalism in the hands of composers like Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

But, with the iterative nature of these works is apparent, Daniel couldn’t leave could just write a set of derivative works that mimicked contemporary composers. Instead he reaches back into the world of serialism for a couple of these compositions. The density and complexity of these works belies their roots in the concept of minimalism.

It’s the sharp contrast between modern composition styles that makes this work interesting. Daniel has found a way to move between what many would consider to be ambient music and the most challenging classical music without finding any lines. He is an explorer of all ages of music.

Vinze is dead – Corse1993′

[376]

Vinze is dead

“Corse1993′”

A curiously named guest artist again for October. Vinze is dead could be the sign of depression or sentimentality, and the 12 track album ‘Corse1993’ twists and turns in all directions, giving you a nostalgic vibe similar to Boards of Canada, with subtle sounds your ears yearn to hear, to detailed drum tracks – nothing too heavy, just delicate percussion to complement the otherwise sublime tracks.

Perfect for that autumn afternoon in the last of the warm sunny days, or enjoying the crisp approaching winter (as we do here in Finland). All tracks have some great feelings and warmth, but a couple stand out for this fan: Veshangree (very BOC influenced) and Theme from pursuit of happiness which reminds me of ‘Nannou’ by Aphex Twin.

Eter Dub – In da name of Jah

[DPH026]

Eter Dub

“In da name of Jah”

Eter Dub was founded by the dub master Federico Balza, in Mendoza (Argentina). The project was floating around the air for some years until the first works came out in 2015 through a self-release called “JaH-Fi”. Federico Balza (flute/sax) is a graduated musician from the Universidad Nacionalde de Cuyo with studies on classical flute and member of the Orquesta Sinfonica Juvenil (1st flute) in Argentina. As saxophonist (tenor/alt), flutist and keyboard player he collaborated with many reggae, dub and hip-hop bands like Zona Ganjah, Downbeat and Negritage touring around the underground scene of Latin America (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil).

Eter Dub offers a new fresh breeze in dub music. His sound cannot be framed into one genre. It is definitely dub, but with references not only to his classical musical studies but also into jazz, which is his second nature. Each composition offers originality and an alternative approach to dub music. From the “linguistical” approach on Hand Of Jah, to the slow and wild “Ras-Sax”, from the funk-jazzy “Jah Trax 5” to the adventurous “Jah Jah Love”, all seven tracks of the EP build a new concept of dub music.

Special thanks to Martin Musso and Richman Fyah for the guitars on this release, El Vignold for the awesome cover art and Salvator & Viento Zondub for the inspiration. Be prepared for something different.

“Skegness Lagoon Walk / Gibraltar Point – Improvisations”

Field recordings and improvisations recorded at Skegness on the East coast of England.

1. Skegness Lagoon Walk: Wind, Seascape and Improvisation
On August 2nd 2016, at around 6:10pm, while on holiday in Skegness, a live location performance soundwork was created at the Lagoon Walk location.

2. Gibraltar Point: Wind, Seascape and Improvisation
On August 4th 2016 a live location performance was created on the shoreline at Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve at about 9:30am featuring a short walk from the vegetated dune area by the beach to the tidal edge and back to the edge of the dunes.

3. Gibraltar Point Car Park Windscape (vignette)
Recorded in our car on the 4th August 2016 in the Gibraltar Point Visitor’s Car Park shortly before our return home to Nottingham. I discovered by accident that when the driver’s side car door was just ajar a strong wind noise was heard. It was ‘blowing a gale’ at the time. As I had my full binaural recording rig at hand it was too good an opportunity to miss!

Dallas Simpson is an environmental sound artist and has been recording and performing live on location since the mid 1990s. Recordings are exclusively in the binaural format for headphone listening recorded using in-ear custom modified DPA4060 microphones. He engages with locations observing soundscapes and performs live using found objects and surfaces.

While listening, it becomes clear why these EPs are part of the same series. There’s a certain sonic character to them that reveals a music artist whose sound is maturing. There’s also a sense of a certain deterministic experimentation.

Whether you’ve heard Ant’s music before or not, be sure that you check it out now. What he’s creating these days is something really special.

“Past Future”

Past Future is CerebralAudio’s second in a series of re-releases of Ambelion’s back catalog. Ambelion approached us about re-releasing these works in the hope that we would be able to gather more attention to his work, and improve on the packaging and mastering of his work: in essence bringing new life to his relatively unknown and neglected work.

Having being familiar with Waiting For Quarters, there was immediate interest in listening to the works that Ambelion had previously released. He sent us two releases: Quasi-Stationary and Past Future. It didn’t take much for us to agree that these works needed to be heard, and Ambelion needs to be appreciated by a more receptive audience.

So, Past Future is the second of these releases. In the future we are working on several more releases from his back catalog, including the potential release of some previously un-released tracks.

Boss, Sambo, Chagas, Nobara & Silver T. – A fragile balance (Fourtounis)

[pn112]

Boss, Sambo, Chagas, Nobara & Silver T.

“A fragile balance (Fourtounis)”

Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel is pleased to present “A fragile balance (Fourtounis)“, album from multicultural improvisation group Boss, Sambo, Chagas, Nobara & Silver T.

“‘Fourtounis’ is the name of the local seafood tavern (that serves more than just seafood) where I indulge in the habit of sitting and relaxing during the summer afternoons (as well as during other times of the day and other times of the year), after a refreshing swim in the sea.

‘Fourtounis’ is the name of the place where I sit enjoying the company of my wife Christina and my friends (more than friends actually, my brothers I should say), Christopher the Lawyer, Thomas, Giorgos and Kostas the Teacher. There we meet to drink ouzo and chat about everything imaginable.

That is the place where, one afternoon, quite possibly under the influence of the drink, I had an idea: listening to the sound of the sea and contemplating the rocky shore, I got out my drumsticks and my brushes and using those accessories as well as my bare hands, I improvised on the rocks, the sand, the pebbles and the water. It was an idea that at first seemed really simple but proved to be quite challenging, since, besides actually playing and improvising, I also had to negotiate the rocks on which I was forced to balance.

I really don’t know if I succeeded, but the most important thing is that through the music I managed to gather around me some special friends and wonderful musicians, whom I thank from the bottom of my heart for their invaluable help:

Matthias Boss – Violin.
Mauro Sambo – Alto sax.
Paulo Chagas – Oboe.
Rogelio Nobara – Acoustic guitar.

I would also like to thank the whole “Fourtounis” team, who allowed me to use the name of the establishment and who didn’t laugh at me too hard watching my struggles to balance and stand upright on the rocks: Sotiris, Dionysis, Babis, Grigoris, Joe the Terrible, Anastasis and Antonis for his magnificent photos.”

Fodiator – No Reason

[SCL188]

Fodiator

“No Reason”

“High up in the attic in the middle of the night… a faint light”

Van Ooij (1970) grew up in the south of the Netherlands and was brought up around music. His father was a local folk singer and Joris had the privilege to try out all old and strange instruments his father made and gathered over the years. Van Ooij followed violin lessons and played a lot on the harmonium. From a young age he started to write his first songs, formed a group with his schoolmates and at the age of 13 they act on national Dutch TV. He bought his first synthesizer at his 15th birthday ( Korg ms10) and that seemed to be the start of experimenting and playing a lot with more ectronic sounds & instruments.
He started to write for theatre and in 1996 he co-wrote the soundtrack and leader for a 26 episodes Dutch tv series named “West-Zijde Posse”
With the urge to create and as a kind of escapism he founded Fodiator (after a genius of the flying fish family) in 2010. A melancholic blend of indie, pop, rock, folk and more….call it “commuter-pop”. His sound, made with all kinds of instruments in combination with his “falsetto” voice has a strong weakness… he often jokes.

Press & Support:
– 22 tracks Brussels:
“The things we learn while selecting these 22tracks! Apparently, a ‘Fodiator’ is a genius of the flying fish family. Next to that, it’s also a project started by songwriter Joris van Ooij in his attic. He’s an self-taught musician who creates his songs alone and then performs them with his Dutch – Belgian band. Van Ooij likes to create an atmospheric and melancholic blend of indie, pop & folk, that reminds us of what makes acts like Efterklang, Menomena and Guillemots so great. Great stuff for the winter, that is coming’’.

– Radio1 Belgium:
“Sometimes it is allowed to play plain pop music, so with this song by Fodiator. A rich layered sound and great story about the longing for the first sunny day of the season, told in just 2.24 minutes.”

– 3voor12 :
“Joris van Ooij, musician behind Fodiator is offering his unpolished music, made on his attic, on the internet….We heard four quiet promising tracks that we hope will appear to hear on EP soon.”

– Elite Muzik:
“I found a new record from Fodiator, an upcoming indie band out of Holland. The record is titled “No Reason”, and sound pretty dam good, give it a listen…”

Mystified – There Is No Wall No Nothing

[CAAM0007]

Mystified

“There Is No Wall No Nothing”

Today we are proud to release the first full-length release from Mystified: There Is No Wall No Nothing. This is Mystified’s second appearance on CerebralAudio. His first appearance was back in July on Into The Rift: Volume One. However, comparison’s between the two tracks would not be valuable. Thomas has the habit of being able to find completely different sounds and structures, even when he is exploring similar source materials and techniques for working with them.

There Is No Wall No Nothing might be a continuation of his exploration of using 78 rpm and Cylinder recordings as source material. However, this work does not have the mechanical grinding sounds present in the
previous work. Instead these sounds are placed well into the background, the basis for the drone element of this work without drowning out the other elements.

The intriguing element to this release is the voice: it’s distorted and manipulated to the point of sounding either alien or bug-like. Hearing it set against the cavernous drone sound makes one think that we are in
some kind of prehistoric era, listening to the formation of life itself.

And with those elements only scratch the surface of this work. There are all sorts of hidden suprises and subtleties throughout this piece that will give your mind a lot to chew on.

Daniel Robert Lahey – Uncultivated Upland

[CACL0001]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“Uncultivated Upland”

Daniel Robert Lahey makes his debut on CerebralAudio with Uncultivated Upland. Daniel started fiddling with the keys of a piano as soon as he could reach them and whenever he could get away with it. He took guitar lessons at 10 and got very serious about it by the age of 15. (Of course, he figured it would help him pick up girls.) He devoted 12 years to the classical guitar repertoire before he’d had enough of so much work for no pay.

Toward the end of his time as a guitarist, he started playing around with Synthesizers. He has been playing keyboards for over 50 years at this point. He grew up with a love for classical music, and has studied many of the great composition masters through the years. This knowledge of classical music is what informs his current works.

On Uncultivated Upland Daniel presents six new works that reflect his perspective on life today. Some of these compositions are a reflection of life in our world today, sometimes from
a slightly off-center perspective (like on “The Zookeeper Escapes” or “Baked”), while other times appealing on a purely emotional basis (like “Uncultivated Upland” or “Tears”).

Give these compositions a close listening. There is a lot to experience and a lot to savor in these well crafted, exquisitely produced recordings.

Hey kids… do you like beats and rhymes? Are you ready for some dope new music? Well we’ve got a treat for you today! We’ve got a brand new EP by those crazy Japan-based Canadians Cheese N Pot-C. It’s not an ordinary CNP EP… either. This one features the incredible beats of Jodo Shinshuu Buddhist monk / DJ / Producer / beatboxer… TA2MI. That’s right, a Buddhist monk who can rock those funky beats.

CNP and TA2MI go back to 2001 when a mutual friend introduced them. In 2011, TA2MI was featured in the documentary KanZeOn and is now set to launch his whirlwind interview and show tour. Today’s release is a taste of a full-length project that’s set to drop in 2017.

A very special thank you goes out to TA2MI, HighSnow, Long John & Cheese N Pot-C for this dope new EP! I look forward to the LP next year!

Erich Schall – SONDE

[wuerfel 20]

Erich Schall

“SONDE”

Erich Schall gehört einfach zu den ganz Guten. Nicht nur, weil dies bereits sein drittes Album auf dem kleinen grünen Würfel ist. Sondern auch, weil er es schafft, sich nicht zu wiederholen. In der Rockmusik spricht man gerne vom schwierigen dritten Album. Erich Schall ficht das nicht an. Er hat schon lange zu seiner Musiksprache gefunden, wobei hier eigentlich die Mehrzahl angebracht ist. Denn, um bei diesem Bild einmal zu bleiben, Erich Schall spricht fließend Dub-Techno, Minimal, Elektro und neuerdings auch IDM und Downtempo. Aber wen interessieren in unserer Postmoderne noch Genre-Grenzen?
Niemanden, genau. Ach so, war eine rhetorische Frage. Egal.

Die freie Wahl der Mittel stellt Erich Schall vor das Problem, nicht in die Beliebgkeit abzudriften. Er löst dies ganz meisterhaft durch Selbstbeschränkung. Jedes Stück verfolgt exakt eine Idee und das ganz konsequent. Seien es nun Sounds von elektronischen Klanghölzern in „Sticks“, von einem Saxophon in „Saxblock“ oder von einem Klavier in „Quantifier“ – stets lotet er alle Möglichkeiten und Variationen bis ins letzte aus. Auch scheint es, als habe er zudem noch verschieden Tempi erforschen wollen. Denn vom extrem treibenden Peaktime Kracher „Tropical Dodge“ über hypnotische Midtempo Stücke für die Aufwärmphase wie „Outside the Tent“ oder „Seep“ bis hin zum abschließenden, chillig langsamen Rausschmeißer „Dew“ werden alle Zeiten bedient.

Ein Album für einen ganzen Abend also, mit einer wunderbaren Spannungskurve. Kann man gut durchhören. Aber natürlich darf sich auch jeder gerne seine Perle herauspicken. Und das Schöne dabei: Perlen gibt es für alle genug bei diesem Album.

F600 – Dos Puertas y un Puente para una Banda Sonora

[pn111]

F600

“Dos Puertas y un Puente para una Banda Sonora”

Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel is pleased to present “Dos Puertas y un Puente para una Banda Sonora“, album from chilean musician and producer F600.

“The most recent work of Miguel Conejeros, aka F600, corresponds to the soundtrack for the artistic installation “Dos Puertas y un Puente para una Banda Sonora (Two Doors and a Bridge for a Sound Track),” a collaborative montage between Miguel and the artist Rodrigo Vergara. The work, which combined sculpture and music, was exhibited in the International Museum of Chile – Gallery MICh, in Santiago, Chile, between the 17th and the 24th of June 2016.

The sonic montage in its original version was developed in a multichannel (5.1) format, in order to be appreciated by the viewer/listener as he or she transverses the space of the exhibition, where the sounds are released from the four corners of the hall, projecting a sensation of spatiality and movement, in contrast to the apparent inertia of the sculpture.

In the words of Sebastián Riffo, Director of the Gallery MICh, “The pieces exhibited were erected from the concrete, free of abstract sentimentalisms, interior life and/or conceptual and/or symbolic over-determination. They were there, alone, supported above structures of metal in order to say nothing. They wouldn’t share stories, messages, nor morals, they were only embedded in our floor and extending themselves through space. Of a palpable nature, realizing distinct material layers and sounds, as if dealing with geological strata; enigmas impossible to resolve without the help of an attentive ear and a dilated interest.”

This disc contains a demonstration in stereo of the work of F600, valuable as a historic register of the creative processes of Miguel, moreover, it provides the listeners the possibility to appreciate in a new instance the materiality of his sounds, those that are capable in and of themselves, of telling us this and other stories, of opening doors and laying new bridges.”

REVIEW:

“The intimate and unrepeatable process of the construction of this piece is captured through the sounds that inhabit the studio.

They are the acoustic frequencies from the manipulation of the distinct elements that raise the scaffolding of this sound track.

Much like the materiality of a sculpture is intervened with pigments, molds, and tools: the captured sounds are processed electronically and digitally, imprinting their own character in the result.

‘Dos puertas y un puente para una banda sonora’, is an exercise in congruence between materialities that plant themselves like a tale of a tactile, optic and acoustic construction in order to be traversed, contemplated, and inhabited from their interior.”
