Palm Era – Gimo

Palm Era

“Gimo”

Palm Era – Gimo

Palm_Era (Claudio Cisterna) is a chilean producer from Santiago. A long-standing electronic music producer, he had been publishing under the netlabel Impar and the record label U-Cover from Belgium under the alias Flipper, a project that is closer to IDM. Later under the alias ‘Chiodata’, he immerses himself more into the experimental side of music and releases some of his works under the Irish record label Fort Evil Fruits and Cocodriller. He has also developed other projects such as ‘Jon Claudio’, a fusion between electronic music and Krautrock. Palm_Era released his album called ‘Coincidental’ under the record label Illuminated Paths from Florida, USA in 2015. He has also collaborated in compilations that have been released by the netlabel Modismo and netlabel Epasonidos. These days, he is presenting ‘Gimo’, his first publication under Modismo which travels between diverse rhythms built with complex and yet innovative structures. ‘Gimo’ essentially takes us into a profound and flavorful trip where basslines and synths that are analogically worked combine. In this work, Palm_Era reveals his good taste and skills. The way to approach percussion in this record excels due to its production duty and Latino sense. Samples lead to a trance that is hard to get rid of and melodies gleams at the right time, as well as the details in experimentation. All this results in a very refreshing and futuristic album that will stand out in time without a doubt.

Ivan Black – We are such stuff as dreams are made on

[brhnet51]

Ivan Black

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”
A Quote from Shakespeare’s The Tempest inspired me to see how relevant the story is against todays lives and politics? Little has changed, people are still seeking revenge or power, but hopefully like in the story love for each other will eventually win the day. A dream perhaps but a nice one to think that eventually we will put our differences behind us and start to trust and teach other.

For Example John – The first 12 Decades

[Wuerfel 21]

For Example John

“The first 12 Decades”

Der Mob sinniert, der Bornierte schunkelt sich die müde Gleichgültigkeit von der Seele und überhaupt ist alles ganz ganz anders. For Example John (Mainz / Köln) stapfen nach Belieben durch die Stile ohne jemals die zynischen Gesten für das Konstrukt Leben zu verlieren. Das passt es ins Bild, das die zwei die Haupt-Protagonisten ihr Kollektiv (sic!) bei Bedarf nur zu gerne durch temporär verfügbares Familienpersonal ergänzen.

Der Titel des Albums dient als Hinweis auf die stilistische Entwicklung der Johns. Wilderten sie früher noch allzu gerne in Punkrock-Gefilden, so wetzen sie sich heute lieber die Hörner am weit gefassten Pop-Entwurf ab. (Ach ja die Hörner. Die sind nicht umsonst in Kombination mit der Discokugel in das Bandlogo eingeflossen. Und klingen sie nicht einfach wunderbar im Opener, dem „For Example John Song Song“?)

Wie dem auch sei. Über die Jahre haben sich allerlei Perlen angesammelt und nebeneinander aufgereiht. Hier findet das Agitative, das Sonderbare, aber auch das Alltägliche nebeneinander seinen Platz. Mal englisch, mal deutsch im besten DAF-Jargon, mal skurril, mal nachdenklich, mal romantisch und mal ernüchtert. Da ist Schlager, da ist Country, da ist Eurodance und da ist vor Allem charmanter Trash auf poliertem Parkett.

Ist das nun schon überspitzter Eklektizismus?

David Evan Krebs – Tides

[CAEX0005]

David Evan Krebs

“Tides”

This is music for sound explorers who want to explore the canyons of sound but keep near the touchstone of melody. David Alan Krebs’ “Tides” discovers gently evolving drone sounds and, in particular, the textures within sound variations. Each track feels like a visit to a garden of diverse Baja California—each piece is distinct, solitary, spiky in its own way, and pleasantly alien. The pieces range from less than a minute to a few minutes each. The listener is pulled into a single musical in each track, which is investigated thoroughly and dispassionately. Listening is a pleasure rather than a laboratory explosion. Every piece presents the listener with its own bit of sonic intrigue. This is music that is clinical in its experiments while retaining its humanity. The artist eschews beats, time-signature-melodies, and pat ambient themes. Instead, pieces like “Draping Slowly” and “Crevices” contain music which neither panders to nor pulverizes the listener. No two pieces are faintly alike, but all the pieces fit well together. In “Cloud Base (Stage Two)” the drone hovers in that angelic space between the familiar and the strange, where the insights feel within grasp but the conclusions are wordless. The dozen tracks which make up “Tides” are ideal listening for an Autumn day, or an autumnal mood. David Alan Krebs takes us on a journey, and we are delighted to hike along.

C. Reider – Listening After the End

C. Reider

“Listening After the End”

“Listening After the End is a study of one’s immediate environment, of the resonant potential of what surrounds us. A frozen stream. A passing train. A ceiling fan. The wind. A cat plays; someone sneezes; an autoharp lets out a long hum. These vignettes–textural, spacious, and sonorous–are wonderfully evocative pieces that, when taken as a whole, form a vibrant sonic life, one that revels in the animus to be found in even the subtlest of things.”

Viktor Van River – Triumph Of Unconscious

[BSOG0073]

Viktor Van River

“Triumph Of Unconscious”

Today we welcome a great new addition to our humble little label… Viktor Van River. Fans of the terrific Bulgarian label Dusted Wax Kingdom will likely know the name and are probably already fans. With his debut full-length album, Viktor wanted to expand his sound a bit beyond the sound that Dusted Wax focuses on, so he followed in the footsteps of his buddy, Cutside, and came to blocSonic.

Ten songs deep, Triumph of Unconscious is a tightly focused album with a big sound. With the global political landscape and upheaval (especially that which we’re seeing happen in the US and UK), it’s no surprise that there are political themes running throughout.

Extra huge shout out to Viktor for being a part of what we do here. Welcome to the blocSonic fam!

Llankru – Llankru

[djummi.007]

Llankru

“Llankru”

The magic of the basics

A music: very simple, as present and obvious as the happening round us. Its sounds: Elements in space, which fly apart in uniform motion, without resistance and get together again.

Llankrú masters the vanishing till the dispersal. Just as its opposite: The bang, with which all wants to expand into space from the center with force. In doing so time is relative. And therefore their im- and explosions happen in seemingly endless calm.

The instruments sound like they sound. A guitar, a second, guitar, a bass and a drum set. The musicians have freed sound and arrangement from all the superfluity and potential masquerade. But intuitively, not wilfully. The single sin is the glowing overdrive sometimes. But to this one the blessing was given already.

With all this „Sturz durch Raum und Zeit Richtung Unendlichkeit“ (C. Karges) Llankrú’s songs relate wonderfully. They could be the six episodes of a film, which may work stand-alone, but forge a bridge of a whole narration together.

The narrative power rises with the reduction. That’s the magic of the basics. Everything runs to a point, slowly the sum of the parts emerges and condenses more and more. And than suddenly: Nothing.

Daniel Robert Lahey – No Cure For Music

[CACL0007]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“No Cure For Music”

Daniel Robert Lahey wields the tools of a trained classical musician in pursuit of ambient music with direct and fresh (but never simple) melodic charms. Each of his pieces bears a symphonic influence, but each piece aims to provide the listener a listening experience of intriguing sound-on-sound. Rather than the sunny sleepwalk of new-age-style waves of saccharine melody, Lahey weaves complex themes throughout each composition.

This is not music for everyone—but it is music for anyone. In “No Cure”, Daniel Robert Lahey takes the listener in for a digital scan, and the diagnosis is positive for sound. This is sound to take the indolence of an idle hour and turn it into the therapy of intriguing sonic exploration.

The Line of Apollo

“The Line of Apollo (EP)”

The Line of Apollo was founded by two friends (former classmates) in 2014. in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny, in the Russian Federation. Later, they were joined by two more participants.
The band members have played together since 2007, from school times, but the previous project broke up and a revived The Line of Apollo appeared from its ashes. The name was created as a derivative of the past band name (Underline The Sunday). The Line of Apollo also means “The Sun Line”. This line is on the palm of a man and symbolizes the creative beginning.
Initially, the band’s music was based on the youthful hobbies of the band by American alternative, pop-punk and punk bands such as Blink-182, Yellowcard, Sum-41, etc. Becoming older, the collective began to choose a heavier and atmospheric direction under the influence of already modern genres, like such as post-rock, post-hardcore, melodic-hardcore, etc. Although the vocal performance remained clear.

Luca scrive e suona con cura, e tutto ciò lo si può sentire nella sua musica. Pubblicare questo singolo è per noi un onore.
Se lo incontrate non fategli mai la domanda su chi preferisce fra Beatles e Rolling Stone. La risposta è ovvia.

Fabio Keiner – BLACK RAIN

[CAAM0012]

Fabio Keiner

“BLACK RAIN”

Fabio Keiner explores the landscape of the post-nuclear fallout of Nagasaki and Hiroshima on Black Rain.

In the days following the United States bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II, the residents were left to deal with the fallout from the devices. Nuclear fallout is commonly known as Black Rain. Fabio Keiner has recorded a series of works that looks at the exposure to radioactive fallout in terms of ambiguous time perspective. The X on Black Rain could be interpreted as days, weeks or even months.

Fabio Keiner hails from Vienna, Austria. He creates musical pieces and photographs. His credits include his contribution to the soundtrack to the 2015 award winning short film “Reformation” by director Hoyon Jung.

Active in the netlabel scene for years, his soundscapes, melodies and drones criss-cross the borders among ambient, dark ambient, abstract experimental and melodic electronica. His work is atmospheric and imaginative, with a sound that seems narrative without quite telling specific stories in defined words. His releases have appeared on numerous labels, including Treetrunk Netlabel, Webbed Hand Netlabel, Petroglyph Music, and Cian Orbe netlabel.

Lynlee – Words in the Winds: Sounds

[PT063]

Lynlee

“Words in the Winds: Sounds”

‘Words in the Winds : Sounds’ is the new collaborative series by
Chris Lynn and Una Lee. The project rose from recognising that
we as field recordists often try our best to disguise our presence
within the sound recordings despite the fact that their mere
existence implies the involvement of human activity. As a result,
we started to mark our presence through reciting our original
haikus and poems, whilst making the field recordings, the
content of which were based on or inspired by our sonic
surroundings.
Each track effectively contains a short poem written and recited
either by Chris or Una, which would be sent to the other who in
exchange would create an accompaniment whether in a musical
format such as piano or vocal improvisation or with another piece
of field recording as a response.
This process is an evolved version of several projects previously
and currently conducted by the duo, such as ‘Miniature
Landscape Correspondences’ and ‘Word in the Winds’, the word/
image-based project in which an image was sent from one to the
other person who subsequently would respond to it with a short
poem.

Fallout of Nevada is a Russian Fallout 2 total conversion project. The development project started in 2009.
The developers sought to preserve the basic principles of the original, such as moral and ethical issues, post-nuclear wasteland gloomy atmosphere, black humor, and so on.
Soundtrack for Fallout of Nevada (in ambient and dark ambient styles) was written by composer Alexei Trofimov (aka Nobody’s Nail Machine). It is close to the design of the original series soundtrack by Mark Morgan (Fallout 1 & 2). These compositions have found great resonance among the fans of Fallout of Nevada and connoisseurs of the genre of ambient music.

Thomas Jackson Park (formerly known as Mystified) has undertaken a new approach to post-industrial age music with Grid Resistor. For this project he used contact microphones to make recordings of machines and appliances. These recordings were then processed digitally to find the hidden harmonics and rhythms. His latest release, Mu, focuses on finding the harmonies and rhythms in the noise produced by old shortwave radios.

Grid Resistor is Thomas Jackson Park’s first post-Mystified project. The Grid resister series is limited to twenty four releases, one for each letter of the Greek alphabet. (With a couple of side-project collaborations.) Mu is the final recording to be released in the series.

poj.wlkp – Do Zorzy

[UPL 075]

“Do Zorzy”

poj.wlkp’s new album ‘Do Zorzy’ is their 10th and presents their best recordings to date. The wonderful progression continues, as the creative force behind the project, Jan Strach, fine tunes his abilities and really focuses them into a unique and forlorn dreamy atmosphere. Taking 4 years to create, these songs have been excruciatingly crafted and analyzed by an artist who has poured his heart and the secrets of his soul into every sound and lyric. Each song has an interesting structure with layers of ambiance, character and experimentation strewn about the melodies, all while maintaining a core of folk.

The opening song “Zrobilem Sobie Spacer” sets the tone of the album with a wonderfully noodling guitar dancing throughout its ether, ultimately climaxing in howling melody. The album continues triumphantly with peaks and valleys, all weaving in and out of heartfelt lyrics and lush instrumentals. Coming full circle at the end with “Białe Pola,” a beautiful acoustic number reminiscent of the early days of poj.wlkp. Two bonus tracks grace the Unfinite Records release, both of which only add to the album’s allure. On the whole, ‘Do Zorzy’ is a crowning effort waiting to be explored on a rainy day in your heart of hearts.

Rich Sudney – Parading Out The Devil

[DF-3]

Rich Sudney

“Parading Out The Devil”

He who is in his late thirties, stares out into the open vast waters of northern lake Michigan. Blue sky above him reminds him of past wilderness adventures, hiking, camping, enjoying the company of no-one else but his solitude. As the ferry boat rocks ever so gently with each wave, his stare becomes hypnotic in the anticipation of traveling to a different world then he’s used to. From the cluttered exhausted saturated air of the motor city to the crisp clean everything of those islands in the middle of this lake. Traveling on a whim, spontaneous plans of going to meet and shake hands with his fears are all in the back of his mind. “You can plan for everything under the sun. But you’ll never plan for that banana peel you’ll slip on” he recalls from reading mystic literature. “I know I’ll make it” saying to himself in a reassuring vibe. Carefully planning every spot, step and strategy to get to a small island by kayak for months now. “Just remember the banana peel!”

Alejandro Albornoz & Mika Martini – Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse

Alejandro Albornoz & Mika Martini

“Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse”

‘Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse’ is Alejandro Albornoz and Mika Martini getting dark and dirty with sound in Studio 2, University of Sheffield Sound StudiosMay 2016, Sheffield, UK. With analogue synthesizers, contact microphones and digital processes rendered live, rough sound objects are hewn from all manner of sources leading to short tracks that challenge and delight at the same time.

Alejandro and Mika go way back so their improvisations are extremely respectful. Track durations vary according to materials and techniques used. Sometimes the analogue electronics are dominant; sometimes recordings of live instruments such as pianos play a major role with electronic sounds clothing the real in soft noise and bristling modulations. There’s a real sense of ‘performance’ which is sometimes hard to hear in improvised electronic music. This sensibility jostles nicely with the ‘hands on’ approach to their kit and sounds, and makes me return to various tracks for ‘another listen’.

Concluding the improvised music are two ‘reconstructions’ – an out of real-time re-consideration of their recorded improvisations. Immediately one hears an alternate approach to time. Real Time is no longer important; the ‘moment’ doesn’t matter; sounds are ordered, re-ordered, edited, and ordered again. The final two tracks are like paintings: sounds once free to roam are rounded up, fed, watered, (caged maybe) but framed to form a journey that neatly concludes an exciting collaboration and an excellent disc.
