“Sobria Ebrietas was born around 1995-1996 as a side-project to my
former band Absolutely Curtains, and became permanent after its split in
>From the outset, this project aimed at a research on sound, without any
other goal than creating a specific visual feeling and the wish to
generate a dark, powerful and captivating mark.
Following several albums, EPs and many sonic & visual collaborations
spanning 20 years, this search asserted itself, spawned its evil twin
Eurovision Über Alles and opened out to create a unique and unclassable
soundscape still true to its original quest: the love of Sound.”
“Melting Clinamen” was born from a small deviation from the methodology used by Failure Circle in this serie of compositions Frozen Clinamen that normally uses only sounds recorded while no human intervention is applied to the used set-up ( no-input mixer most of the time). The creation of the first track of this album followed the same rules – except that it used a recording that features some little changes created manually (this sound can be heard between 3min11 et 12m06). This is also the first release in which Failure Circle doesn’t use a no-input mixer but a semi-modular analog synthesizer, the Neutron by Behringer, with no effects except its built-in ones. Another notable difference with the past volumes lies into the way the material has been edited & mixed. The other track of the album (Frozen Clinamen #2M) follows more strictly the Frozen Clinamen methodology, but all sounds were also created with synthesizer. Thus, Melting Clinamen is and isn’t part of the Frozen Clinamen serie.
Methodology of the Frozen Clinamen serie
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.

After 5 years spent exploring improvised and noise guitar, Xavier Mussat opened a parenthesis without his usual instrument. He recorded abstract sound ambiances to be used as background sounds to accompany the work of his students during the intuitive drawing classes he gives. Here simplicity prevailed : he used the cheap internal microphone of his computer and several objects (bowls, balls, crumpled paper, table, and finally a hint of prepared banjo), as well as remixed sounds taken from videos of snowy landscapes. Experimenting with the austerity of a minimalist aesthetic, he extracted 4 tracks from these raw textures and materials.
Take a pipette and drip a drop of water on your own palm. Transparent drop, full of invisible organisms, chemical elements, and personifications. Looking at the drop, thoughts are spinning. With the other hand rub the drop until the drop penetrates the skin and disappears. Hands need lots of water, but it’s enough for this time. Look at the lake…
The album was based on Lithuanian Chronicles, history and historical personalities, who might be connected to each in strange ways. While working on each track special attention was given to convey with sounds all the aspects of each historical personality and their influence on the history of Lithuania.
After his strong EP “Silhouettes”, Digital Diamonds presents KUNI’s debut album! 13 unique tracks, each constituting their own narrative. In a world driven by perpetual change and a yearning for freedom, KUNI represents a sonic reality that is not restricted by any rules. This is reflected in the album title ‘Coalesce’ meaning ‘come together to form one mass or whole’… which is what this versatile artist embodies. Immerse yourselves in the journey.
Anastasia Vronski is a versatile experimental musician from Perm, Russia. Since years she has been creating an impressive and quite diverse body of work. Many of her tracks can be classified as “drone “or “noise”, but they always have a specific, often intriguing qualities. Above all, she’s not an artist who will do the same twice, and maybe that’s why some of her pieces are sometimes published separately. Since we thought many of them deserved more exposure, we decided to make a selection of such works in a compilation album : Estrangements, published in two volumes. While first one consisted of 4 minimal conceptual pieces, second one is made of 10 shorter tracks focusing on mysterious ambiances and dense sound textures. One of them, “the pack” wasn’t published before and was made specially for this compilation. The selection of tracks was made by the artist and the label, trying to make the compilation as cohesive as possible. We hope it will make you curious to discover more works from her.

Qualia is ‘an unfamiliar term for something that could not be more familiar to us: the way things seem to us’, such as the perceived redness of an evening sky – it cannot be put into words. These compositions are an attempt to describe a space in the artist’s mind, a three dimensional region of emotion and feeling influenced by a fleeting yet intense period of saudade – an indescribable longing for something one never had.
A powerful trip ambient trip into the woods of a long winter, some steps into the snow and his rumours. Wonderful and terrible at the same time.

As I’m not 100% sure about how much time I have left because of cancer, I’m starting to release part of my backlog of unreleased stuff. This is a brief album I’ve done and encoded in 128kbps back in 2006.
