DISSONANT adalah unit electronic / eksperimental antara Andryan Ade dan Yoga Usmad. Project ini bereksperimen dengan suara ambient, soundscape, noise, serta dipadukan dengan instrument piano dan synthesizer.
“Journey.” berisi arsip audio dari pertunjukan musik yang telah dilakukan Dissonant. Materi komposisi berasal dari element dan suara-suara yang ada dalam album pertama (dirilis oleh netlabel Mindblasting). Kami mengembangkan materi-materi dalam album tersebut dan melakukan kolaborasi dengan beberapa seniman (instalasi, video maker, dan musisi). Kolaborasi lintas disiplin ini merupakan upaya eksplorasi untuk menemukan bentuk komposisi baru disetiap presentasinya. Hasil rekaman diambil dari pementasan di beberapa kota (Jogjakarta, Semarang, dan Salatiga).
What are two years? Not much time, a lot of time. It is time. 730 days. 17520 hours. It’s more than the run time of a video game, it could be the entirety of a lifetime.
In this last month of August, NOUNOUHAU celebrated its two year anniversary. For us it is little time and so much time – at the same time. And in that time, time time time time.
We did a lot in two years and its hard to explicit it all in one text. It was a journey, it still is, always mutating and constantly evolving – with one foot at creation and the other at self-discovery, in a public fashion – work in progress style.
Now, two years is a numeric value, so let’s celebrate our numbers. All of our 23 releases present in our bandcamp, from singles to entire albums. Releases from more than 11 different artists. All of them with their work on our youtube, which has over 60 videos – ranging from video clips, lyrics, what-have-you. And how to forget our events? Three distinct events that—
Wait? Who cares about numbers? Or… does everybody cares about numbers?
Pigeon Hole’s epic INVASION EP get’s flipped, twisted and tumbled in this massive remix album. With remixes by Stylust, ColtCuts, yunis, and Strange Thing, these bass-heavy tunes will take you on a sonic journey unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
Slovak producer and DJ Petijee hit us hard with his 2017 Soul Paper Scissors album. From that day his soulful mood sound was something what kept resonating in us and ultimately made him our top choice for the next Beat Garden compilation. We were lucky enough to talk him in to it and we are happy to present the result.
The Dubwegians where founded in the UK back in 2010, when Gary had the idea of starting a dub band. He, therefore, approached his old school friend Richy, whose guitar skills were always thought highly of. He just wanted to play bass in the band and not do any producing.
The band that Gary dreamed, never really managed to pull off. It kind of fizzled out after a while as people came and went, up for a jam and a smoke, but not up for putting in the hours of practice a band needs.
Gary and Richy decided to work as a duo, laying down some reworks of their favourite dub tracks. Having spent most of their life growing up in the south side of Glasgow, the River Clyde has been a great inspiration for them. This is how South of the River Clyde came about. The reference of course to the great Augustus Pablo is more than obvious.
Gary remembers: “We tried to capture the energy of a live band. In the absence of a drummer, it was a struggle for us to use a software, trying to capture the original warmth of analogue dub. It was a real learning experience; listening and trying to emulate these dub masterpieces. We have never done dub producing before and were slowly realizing some of the techniques used.”
South of the river Clyde includes 5 instrumental tracks; dub reworks of some great roots reggae masterpieces, produced back in 2011 with love and lots of passion. Richy played melodica and keyboards (and also guitar on “Sun is shining Dub), Gary played bass and covered all other sounds and production, using a laptop to overdub and edit their takes. Give thanks to Robert McWilliams for granting us the license to use the photo of the river Clyde in the artwork.
Between the years 1620 and 1636, Peter Paul Rubens created, without the prompting of any commission, his Landscape with Philemon and Baucis. He kept working on this image throughout his life. The painting tells the story of Philemon and Baucis as Ovid presented it in his Metamorphoses. In Ovid’s narrative, an old married couple receives a surprise visit from the gods Jupiter and Mercury, disguised as weary travelers who cannot find a place to spend the night. The old couple does not judge these travelers or question where they are from; they simply offer them kindness and hospitality. The two gods offer the couple a gift expressing their gratitude: they spare their lives when, the next day, a great flood comes crashing over the land.
In the painting, only a small group of figures makes reference to this fable. The main theme of the piece is the unpredictability of nature with its untamed, uncontrolled power: lightning and thunder, rain and storms, a cow screaming as its life ends within a torrent, a mother desperately trying to rescue her baby. This is an apocalyptic catastrophe of unimaginable proportions. And yet, Rubens included a hopeful sign in this image: in the lower left-hand corner of the tableau, you can see a rainbow…
“Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,” sang Judy Garland in the well-loved film The Wizard of Oz (1939), a song promising hope and a wonderful world far from the darkness and ominous threats of the Second World War.
This image has much to tell us in our contemporary lives, as our current reality includes events such as the refugee crisis, global warming, and the threat of nuclear disaster. It acts as both a warning and a sign of hope.
For the theatre project Ganymed Nature, composer Karlheinz Essl worked extensively with Rubens’ Landscape with Philemon and Baucis, creating an immersive soundscape to reflect this painting. This sound work is based on algorithmically generated soundscapes taken from weather and other natural phenomena: the forest and the wind, a stream that swells and overflows, thunder and lightning. We also hear sounds that refer to human activity: rustling steps through foliage that turn into the ringing of high heels, in which a woman stalks on asphalt. And then there are signaling sounds: a firebell extends into an unending tolling that spins onward into infinity.
The poetry of the rainbow overarches everything; the promise of salvation, a glimmer of hope. To express this, Essl worked with an a-capella-choir to create chord structures which he then recorded and electronically transformed. The highlighted melodic fragments are reminiscent of the famous rainbow song yet appear in a peculiar harmonic disguise which let you sense the atmospheres of other planets.
The sky lets the darkening and rising time to be. Space is conquered by the higher element. Silence… She’s sitting here a couple of hours already. She observes her surroundings with a paraminic look, she waits until she sees again, until she feels again what she saw yesterday. That time northeast wind loudly running by asked her to look at trees standing naturally regularly. They looked calm and stiff, but when the wind passed their leaves whitely, the leaves breathed freely and started whispering silently, moving synchronously with stars.
The music of Walt Thisney is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths.

Insect Life Cycles is Troxellemott’s debut EP. It will guide you through the process of holometabolous development of an insect, a track for each stage.
The music makes you feel the rustle of insect wings, taking away your human skin. Forms are crashed by the narrative, narrative breaks up by forms. Within the tracks architecture you can hear flinging and hesitations in the flow of natural processes. Track by track you’re invited to explore your personality antipodes and face your fears, as for ex. the artist’s primeval centipedes phobia.
Pierre Guilhem il faisait des dessins mais aussi de la musique alors voilà son album de Dub qui date de 2005, il l’avait fait en CD et Claude Biscuit en avait un exemplaire qu’il a maintenant égaré. Mais Reno Leplat Torti nous en a retrouvé un que voici, la pochette scanée est à venir, car voici une detestable miniature qui a pourtant son charme. Un album réalisé avec un synthé (Casio, il nous semble) et qui a été composé à Nîmes. Il a d’abord été promu sur la page de Nunu Editions, autour de 2005. De la dub pour plage à savourer entre amis, avec un pastis, dans la mesure du possible.

Ayato & Kecap Tuyul met in 2008 and then started to collaborate regularily, mostly by file exchange. Flowers in the Trashbin was their first common work of this kind, a psychedelic sonic trip haunted by whispers and noises from weirdly tuned/prepared guitars, lo-fi electronics, & ghostly voices. Sometimes melodic, sometimes more abstract, always imaginative, these tracks were recorded and mixed between 2008 and 2009. The resulting album was released in march 2010 by HAK lo-fi record as a limited edition CD-R with a special rectangular cardboard cover that has been out of print since a long time. 8 years after both musicians still like a lot this album and would like it to share it with a broader audience.

We return after a break with a new release of the mexican producer already known in Nulogic Netlabel as In Vitro. Creator of the wonderful label Breathe, In Vitro offers us a fascinating Ep of four tracks whose main pattern is based on the roots of Techno. But there is much more than Techno in this work. Brushstrokes of a precious electronics, deep bass lines and a groove that dances on the edge of the dark side. These are just some of the surprises that “Transdimensional Woods” offers us.
