This is an ep that has been sent to one of my old email-addresses in 2012 but unfortunately, it got, like so many other submissions, lost between all the spam. I just discovered the submission at the end of last December. After the 20kbps sweet compilation came out, I once more searched through all the spam and finally found this gem. It’s like a message from a parallel universe where the clone of me managed to deal with the spam.
Hello. I stumbled across your blog and now want to throw my plug at you. I just released A Flat Thing, my ninth album as The Hathaway Family Plot. If you’ve never heard of me before (and you probably haven’t), my music could be described as avant-garde noise/pop from Buffalo, New York. I like the term “garage art.” It’s mostly piano and electronics and distorted kazoo. Some singing and some straight-up yelling. Trying my best to come up with something that sounds new and different and interesting.
All my albums are Creative Commons BY-NC-SA. I don’t imagine becoming wildly successful, so I just want to be heard by some sympathetic ears. I hope you like it.
Thanks for listening,
The Hathaway Family Plot
Melinda & Maciek is a project started in February 2018 thanks to an accidental Instagram connection between 2 musicians. Melinda Ligeti is a composer/singer/multiinstrumentalist/arranger/producer from Serbia, living in Italy, while Maciek Cieslak is a drummer from Poland, living in France. It all started with Melinda’s old wish to write music based on a bare drum track. Maciek happened to have some ready, recorded drumparts that he sent to her, and she used them to build music upon it, using piano, synth and bass. It was an experimental approach to composition Melinda always wanted to try, and it finally happened. The result is 4 songs, mixing jazz, prog, fusion, chillout, contemporary… imagined as a mini album, giving the taste of what this project might become if developed further. 3 of them are instrumental, and one is also involving Maciek’s vocals that got caught on microphones while recording the drumpart, a selfironic song that makes fun of the hardship of singing and playing at the same time, in his native Polish language. Jazz Frit is a symbolic title for this album, for the fact that musicians involved are living in (Fr)ance and (It)aly, but also, and so much more, for the meaning of frit word, which by Oxford dictionary definition is the mixture of silica and fluxes which is fused at high temperature to make glass, plus – according to urban dictionary means intoxicating/exciting, as well as ligthly fried.
“erasing memories” was an idea developed for music to live and die on stage. Taking the past concept of music that dies on stage, Carlos Suero composed this unique piece of one hour, with various segments within, for this purpuse only. But, after reconsidering the idea of losing these tracks for ever; and having talks with friends, he decided to release it in order to making it avalable for everyone that couldn´t make to that night.
The night was the concert played the 17/11/2018 and organised by RATORMOUTE in Madrid.
The day after he set up the instruments again like the night before and performed the same concert this time in the studio.
The music included here is without cuts or extras added, its is exatcly as it was the night before; live.
Recorded at HomeStudios (Madrid).
Mastered by CSH at HomeStudios (Madrid).
This album is about beat impressionism, when the beat does not make the rhythm, but the mood instead. Breakcore and IDM inspired mess of beats and breaks and plastic.
When I was a child I used to gather all the wooden, metal and plastic boxes to make my “drum set”. I played my drums with spoons and sang aloud: “The cat has cometh!”. My passion for rhythmic music never faded, so, after growing up I still gathered all wooden, metal and plastic samples to make my virtual drum set.
I like when the beat is not merely a metronome, even my favourite rock bands have drummer leaders – “Magma” with Christian Vander and “高円寺百景” with Tatsuya Yoshida. I like when the beat is flow, when it creates melody, when it gives tempo not only by beating the drum faster or slower but by creating the feeling of speed or chill. I do not intend to create a total abstract avant-garde mess, which ceases to sound musical, instead, I want to create the impressionist-like approach, when complex structures give rise to clear and almost tangible impressions.
This “beat impressionism” might sound a bit harsh to an untrained ear, because that is how massive plastic sounds like. Just like metal music is basically harsh rock, so my plastic music is harsh IDM.
Most of the tracks were created 15 years ago. Maybe they were ahead of time? Or maybe they sound like your childhood? Because they definitely sound like my childhood.
KMPST brings the best of the Moscow underground electroacoustic free improv tablet electronica and marks the beginning of a new exciting era on top-40.org with back-to-the-roots hidden gems, original hits, and more entertaining explorations of the unknown.
KMPZ SESSIONS are designed as an acoustic labyrinth without exits but with many escape routes through paradoxical gaps in the aural continuum. Primordial, almost shamanic rhythms meet futuristic mech-a-droids in the vortex of high-freq noises and digital glitches, Amnesia Scanner versus self-mutated Autechre audio algorithms, dark soundscapes, and Muslimgauze’esque faux ethnic vibes.
The opening track KMPZ 015, a rudimentary clicks’n’çutz dark breakbeat anthem, sends us off on a rather epic hour-long journey through an abstract experimentalist interacoustic universe. From suspenseful, uncanny deep dub pulsations on KMPZ 001 to a slowly unfolding, swampy bass micro-ambient soundscape KMPZ 004, with a slightly attenuated KMPZ 008’s distant motive and granular proto-rhythmic vibrations and entrancing melodies of KMPZ 012, KMPST presents a compelling yet highly abstract musical story.
“P8 phase 3” presents another side of the work of our regular contributor Doedelzak. This time he used an hybrid methodology of improvisation, generative music and post-production manipulations. The 3 phases indicated in the title refer to the three main stages of the creative process used here :
phase 1 : improvisation on MIDI piano
phase 2 : extension on multiple virtual instruments, using aleatory distributions
phase 3 : superpositions, accelerations/decelerations, volumes
The result is multi-layered composition which is in the same time easy to the ear (thanks to its smooth sounds and melodic components) and very complex and ever changing. It could be enjoyed as background music but is also fascinating for a more focused listening which will let you discover many details and subtleties of the piece.
WHΛLT THISИEY selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same
quantities that emerge from encounters between the past and the present,
drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life
again, so to produce the same effect with the original freshness and
spontaneity, a mirror that transforms, absorbs and reflects.Released by Pilot Eleven Netlabel (PE018) 1 January 2019.
TERR110: Boreal soundscape collage accompanied by the lull of balmy guitar. Seamless loop recorded over a week-long residency in Inari, Finland.
“I took part in a media workshop group’s travel to Inari, bringing together different artistic visions in order to gather a multimedia report of the Northern seasonal foliage, and ultimately organize a collective art exhibition. The residency was in a cabin beside Nukkumajoki river and my project in the group was to record the journey photographically and acoustically.
I was mesmerized by Inari’s fjelds, lakes and aurora-filled nights, the pristine flora surrounding Nellim near the Russian border and one particularly important place of interest was Siida Museum; a rich crash course on the indigenous Sámi culture, history and the seriously endangered Inari-Sámi language. To this day, Sámi people keep facing systematic discrimination in many aspects.
The loan word “Kaamos” doesn’t have a literal translation in English despite its unmissable significance in our culture. It could be split into two contexts: firstly the near literal translation “polar night” implying the geographical lack of sunrise, and secondly an associated mental state as a consequence: winter depression. The bane of northeners.
Post-trip, I recorded guitar to fit the field recording collage for a seamless audio installation loop as part of our touring mixed media art exhibition of the same name. The opening in December was at our workshop Vimma, with Turku Main Library to follow later in spring.”
This release is a live recording of the collaboration of Limbah Berbunyi Project with Potrobayan Jam at the peak of the series of Ritual Dekahan Bumi in Potrobayan Village. Ritual Dekahan Bumi is a representation of the gratitude of the Potrobayan community along with several Eling Project teams in completing a series of workshops, one of which is making sound sources or musical instruments from existing resources. The resources used in this workshop came from waste and used goods around residents’ houses such as glass bottles, remnants of house floors, barrels, or used pipes. In this workshop, the Potrobayan community was facilitated by Limbah Berbunyi Project with a taste-based improvisation method. In this workshop also was born an art group from the Potrobayan community named Potrobayan Jam.

Master Lampé has come a long way, been traveling Between The Worlds, releasing on Soupherb and Phobos amongst other labels. His productions have hijacked many festival PAs last months, like Boom, Lost Theory or Wonderland and received massive support and feedback from DJs and dancers.
So we at Digital Diamonds are very pleased to present you 2nd EP by Lampé on our label: Three progressive techno crackers that proof his sophisticated sound design and cinematic production skills.
The cherry on the top is a crunching and stomping Joseph Disco remix of Crystal Cave, which is Joseph’s debut track on Digital Diamonds at the same time. All in all a dope EP – Listen and repeat!
