Appearing through the thick foliage with determination in it’s body. This being of ultimate mind and spirit, maneuvers around fallen plant-life as if it’s floating on air. Searching for the one place to call it’s own. Secret sanctuary as you will. A zone of comfort from this all to sensory deluged universe. Having traveled vast distances as a ghost. No other being had knowledge of it’s journey but for every step, it gained more and more understanding of the world we had thought was our own. For this simple creature shared the same vast unlimited ancient wisdom of the sky above and all the way down into the deeps of spirit. The “all seeing eye” ? Perhaps the embodiment of the reincarnated Buddha? It might be hard to believe that this powerful mind of incredible comprehension of all pleasure and pain, could cure all of our worldly woes. That is if we only could listen to it’s observations? Yes, the great enlightened one. No wounder the ancient Egyptians worshiped it.
“Como corresponde a dos veteranos de la escena musical, Lars Graugaard y Claudio Pérez tienen entre ellos una amplia experiencia en estilos como jazz, electrónica, pop, clásica y contemporánea, cubriendo enfoques creativos que incluyen improvisación, notación, programación y producción musical. Ahora unen fuerzas en tres pistas extendidas que de muchas maneras son similares a sus presentaciones en directo, en las que la música en constante transformación de Lars crea un campo de juego para los exquisitos y fluidos inventos en teclado y sintetizadores de Claudio.
Si bien todas las pistas tienen una fuerte base rítmica, las hazañas sonoras continuas produce una música atrevida en refundación ininterrumpida y con giros sorprendentes e vueltas inesperadas.
Los paisajes sonoros de indole psicodélico recuerda al trabajo de Radian, Jan St. Werner y Blir, e incluso a las creaciones subacuáticas de Porter Ricks, particularmente cuando las pistas alcanzan
alta densidad tecno-febril y el conjunto se hace acídico-delirante. En ocasiones, el cuerpo sonoro entero está siendo agusanado por procesos perforantes que transforma la música en algo fantasmagórico, como si pasase a través de un insondable agujero de tiempo y espacio, donde el instante se deforma en visiones deliciosamente irracionales de un sinrazón obstinado.”
“As befits two veterans of the music scene, Lars Graugaard and Claudio Perez hold extensive experience between them in jazz, electronica, pop, classical and contemporary music styles, and cover creative approaches that include improvisation, scoring, computer coding and music production. Now they join forces in three extended tracks that in many ways are similar to their live performances where Lars’ constantly morphing live laptop provides a rich playing field for Claudio’s exquisite and free-flowing inventions on keyboard and synthesizers.
While all tracks have a strong rhythmic grounding, the sonic exploits are daring and continuous and the result is an unbroken musical recasting that provides some unexpected twists and turn along the way. The psychedelic electronic sounds form extended electronic soundscape that are reminiscent of the work of Radian, Jan St. Werner and Blir – even reaching back to Porter Ricks’ subaquatic
creations, particularly when the tracks reach techno-feverish density and the electronics go acidotic rave. At times the entire sound is perforated by vermian processes that ghost casts the music, as if passing through an unfathomable time-space hole that warp and malforms the ongoings into deliciously irrational moments of stubborn unreasoning.”

Almost 3 years after the release of his previous album Trois Clous, Kecap Tuyul unleashes some more stuff dating from the same area (2015), developing an intensive use of voice as main sound source, filtered, deformed by effects and sometimes overwhelmed by feedback. Guitar was still here (on 2 of the 3 tracks of the album), providing unstable melodic/droney backgrounds, but often swallowed by spirals of self-dissolving chaos.
Since then Kecap Tuyul has put guitar and voice aside and now mostly uses no-input mixer, in collaboration with various people, and alone under the Failure Circle moniker, focusing on chaos itself, searching for unstable situations, but welcoming the possible emergence of seemingly self-organized sonic forms.
Powels Lumski‘s first EP “See_Shades” has the DNA of the classic ambient to down-tempo vibe. The four tracks slowly rolls the waves loaded with bass frequencies, glitches and artifacts to create some gritty mysterious reliefs to the journey.

Spirare, latin root of the spanish words for breathe, exhale, inhale, sigh, perspire, expire, spirit.
We are all beings that breathe the same air, invisible and intangible, the breath is what keeps us alive at all times. Our moods varies like the wind, but all they are expressions of our inner self, the language of the air. Spirare is our special final compilation to celebrate the music, the meetings and the end of Breathe as netlabel.

Natalia Kamia, Stewart Miller, and other invisible entities
“We jammed on our little green aircraft”
We welcome back Natalia Kamia on eg0cide, a few years after her collaborative work Cluster with Ayato. This time she teamed up with Stewart Miller from USA Both of them have studied music in academic settings, but in order to expand the expressive potential of their crafts, they have turned to utilizing extended techniques for their main instruments – for Natalia the piano, for Stewart guitars – and using objects/processes that were probably never intended to be musical. All of the tracks from their album “We jammed on our little green aircraft” were compiled from recordings that they had passed back and forth through the internet.
The result of this collaboration is a fresh & intriguing work that deliberately ignores the traditional hierarchies between sounds and focuses on attending to their particularities, without trying to polish them too much. Stewart and Natalia are not afraid of collisions. Their music passes by the non-contradiction principle and the narrow conceptions of music as “harmony”; their sounds dance, float, slip, crash and start running again without following a precisely perceivable logic: you just have to accept them as they come & go. They form a dizzy, unstable world that is in the same time very material and completely unreal, sometimes joyously agitated, sometimes more restrained and plaintive. These tunes often keep some kind of twisted groove, as in some forms of free jazz.
I won’t pretend to know who or what the “other invisible entities” credited as co-creators of the album might be, but having listened to it several times I’ve realized that even goldfishes might learn to sing, and that plants need to pee sometimes. Maybe we just have to experiment with different ways of feeding pianos and guitars ? “Meow!” answered the swinging spoons…
“Conservation Of Angular Momentum” is a touching album full of cinematic ambient sounds. The main attention is paid to the extensive, sublime atmospheres. Convulsing melodies and sound effects in the background do not let the listener fall into a monotonic mood, on the contrary, it evokes a spacious palette of listener’s musical senses.

Without ambiguity “Three” is Torn’s third album. After his largely on guitar and singing reduced second album “Temples”, here he picks up the moods from his first album “Beaches” again, but adds his very own idea of pop to all even more. With his music he draws a flashy bow from almost schlager-like Beat Music, over Broken Dilletante Lofi Rock up to Drone Guitar Noise. Strangely intimate. Unadapted and mainstream.
PGR (neither related to an old project of Kim Cascone nor to the Italian band).
Non empathic, annoying, unemotional crap. Medicine for life boredom.

A seven track ambient album from K.Markov showcasing a selection from three of his existing albums – Organic, After the storm and Species, which you can find on his bandcamp page.
Following on from his first release on Kahvi under the name Phrulex (which was a single several years ago), and part one of the excerpts, K.Markov gives more of the detailed, progressive ambient work that appeared in part one.
Gently floating atmospheres, mixed with sweeping arpeggios and melodical interludes to keep you listening closely.
Much more minimalist than “Wandering in Dust” that we published in 2015, Carillon, the new album of Doedelzak is made of almost nothing. It will discretly merge with your surroundings and the hidden things of your daily life. Maybe you will not notice it at all, which is fine too.
Sentimental Value is a record of which we fell in love from the beginning, with its particular feeling, its tranquility and its power, its making you travel gently. Everything is explained below by its author
I first started playing music back in 2014 when i was 16 as a drummer in a local Melodic Death Metal band. After going over 2 years with my band, i’ve decided to quit and start doing more projects on my own. I started a Grindcore band and joined several other bands/projects from Sherbrooke, going from Skate Punk to Rap, Black Metal and Screamo. After a year or so, I’ve decided to take a break from the local underground scene to start focusing more on my solo projects.
I first started experiencing with several softwares and analog equipement, but quickly went full on with DAWs, as i felt that i wanted to make music with the bare minimum equipement, due to, mostly, lack of space and money. I now work with FL Studio, Cubase 5 and Protools 12. The only hardware that i use is a 25 keys AKAI MIDI keyboard, a Behringer Xenyx 1002fx mixing board and a Novation Launchpad.
Sentimental Value as been composed between July 2017 and Febuary 2018. The title kinda speaks for itself, because every song as been written in connection with a very specific moment in my life. I really wanted to recreate and embody the mood and the atmosphere of these moments and shape it into music. I think is the closest way anybody could ever re-experience them. Sit back, put on your best pair of headphone and let yourself float into this mellow little journey.
“Gradient Descent” is the fourth Metalogue EP. Exploring variations on a single melodic theme, the record travels from dark cavernous ambience to precise digital structures, crossing through sweeping synthetic textures and industrial claustrophobia along the way.
Gradient Descent was written and performed for a Chaos Theory event headlined by Jarboe and Farther Murphy, at St Pancras Old Church, London on 23rd October 2017. The piece features custom made electro-acoustic instruments, field recordings and live electronics. The release on Abstrakt Reflections is a studio arrangement of the original material, integrating additional sound design and layers of live sound from the church performance.
Getting lost and trying to find serenity. Unable to stay calm even for a moment and the unquenched thirst to create new problems. An ear-splitting explosion and a sinful wave of aggression. The solitude and the awakening of the Beast.
“Sinwave”, the second album of Sinage, a neurotic and chaotic trip to the depths of the emotion and feeling. It’s a refined and melodic album filled with dance beats packed inside a unique sound aesthetic that clashes chiptune synths and rave sounds.
Single ini adalah versi edit/remix dari Sunmantra, trio leftfield elektronik asal ibukota. Jojo, Fritz dan Barhel mengambil lagu Seek Six Sick berjudul Antimacho Rockstar secara liar dari YouTube lalu menggubahnya menjadi perkakas lantai dansa bertemakan techno eksperimental/disko-post punk-new beat/ebm atau gaya musik-musik dansa lainnya yang menyampaikan kerasnya kehidupan. Acara dengan genre musik ini sedang berkembang secara signifikan dalam kurun dua tahun ini di seputaran Jakarta-Jogja-Bandung-Bali.
Dibandingkan dengan versi asalnya, remix Sunmantra ini memiliki gaya disko/techno minimal/elektro minor yang tingkat noise-nya lebih rendah dengan tata aransemen yang lebih linear. Repetisi dari potongan lagu asli, unsur elektronik ber-resonansi rendah dan lolongan frasa “Antimacho Rockstar”pun terdengar seiring naiknya tingkat efek delay/echo yang berharmoni dengan ‘acid line’ yang dihasilkannya mampu menghipnotis pendengar dalam lorong ber-strobo diselingi kedap-kedip lampu merah. Ini adalah musik kelab malam bagi orang-orang apatis dan depresi. Musik dansa untuk kaum anti sosial. Inspirasi atas bangkitnya kembali versi lain dari musik dansa elektronik indie/punk electro rock yang bukan metal.
Skena musik eksperimental terus mencari suara-suara dan teknik yang baru serta kemampuan pendengaran baru bagi pendengarnya. Suara lama diolah menjadi gelombang baru. Suasana aneh yang lambat laun secara intens menjadi sesuatu yang indah. Remix ini bukan untuk penggemar deep house, deep techno, deep trance, juga bukan musik kelab malam dengan drum kick macho tebal atau disko gitar wah-wah dengan ketipang-ketipung cerianya. Namun juga bukan hal yang terlalu aneh karena masih mempunyai kick, snare dan suara lain yang ritmis dan konstan yang bisa diikuti telinga dan otak dengan sederhana. Karya ini juga diproduksi/mixing dengan rapi sehingga terdengar jelas dan nyaman. Dansa atau tidak dansa, Anda patut mencoba menelusuri gelombang baru ini. —Aditya Permana (Dekadenz)
