SoundChaser – Drone Thoreau One

[CAEX0003]

SoundChaser

“Drone Thoreau One”

SoundChaser has been fascinated with the concept of transformation. Especially with the concept of taking a single piece of source audio and transforming it into something completely different, something that is un-recognizable from it’s original form. This release is exactly an example of such a transformation.

Starting with a public domain reading of Henry David Thoreau’s Woof of the Sun, SoundChaser took the recording and mangled, manipulated, chopped up, layered, and reassembled it into a work that is completely different from what it started off as. And, after completing transformation he found that he couldn’t leave well enough alone, and further modified two of the layers, which produced a second version that is nearly identical and yet different from the first version.

So, Drone Thoreau One version 1 & 2 form the main listening portion of this release. However, here is where the fun begins: SoundChaser has decided to go a step further by including all the original stems
(layers) of the tracks used to create this release. There are two reasons for this:

SoundChaser believes some people might enjoy listening to the individual stems on their own (especially the Drone stem, which gets mixed into the background in the main tracks), and
He wants others to take the tracks and create their own works. Fold them, spindle, mutilate them, add beats, add other instruments, make them into something else. The less recognizable, the better.

Scott Lawlor – Night On The Great Beach

[CAAM0010]

Scott Lawlor

“Night On The Great Beach”

Scott Lawlor is a sonic explorer of great skill and knowledge. For this work he found a passage in The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod by Henry Beston that was appealing to him and set out to interpret it as an audio work.

This work is comprised of three pieces, the titles of which are each a passage from the book: “…they fear, rather, the energies and creatures to whom night gives power.” and “Yet to love thus, to know only artificial night is as absurd and evil as to know only artificial day.”

Stylistically this work is reminiscent of 1970’s Klaus Schulze recordings, like Timewind.

DR – This Way

[CAAM0009]

DR

“This Way”

Dominic Razlaff (aka DR) returns to CerebralAudio with a new release: This Way.

Dominic’s minimal approach to drone music makes for excellent listening any time: driving, or studying, working or meditating.

This Way is a statement about music, and particularly drone works. He is sticking close to the original Brian Eno inspired concept of drone works: they should be minimal in terms of structure and movement. They have the capacity to both be listened to and ignored at the same time. Ambient music by it’s very nature, is an audio experience that enhances the environment.

Berg Dorf – Blow Cuts

[mfm17]

Berg Dorf

“Blow Cuts”

‘Blow Cuts’ is a collection of raw hip-hop beats with very little embellishment. They provide a blank canvas for imagination. Ideally, the listener should fill the gaps. The aim is to fuel a contemplative state of mind. These tracks were made effortlessly, during a state of flow, and it shows. Most of the samples used have been collected over the years from movies and various other sources. As an artist, Ι’m glad to have managed to produce something coherent in form and content. I enjoy visiting my Blow Cuts from time to time—when the mood is right—and Ι hope you will, too.

This first volume of collected early works spans the years 1988 to 1997, from when I was sixteen to twenty-six years old.

Suspektema – “The threshold scarcely crossed that’s how it is​.​”

[SSSDlp08]

Suspektema

“The threshold scarcely crossed that’s how it is​.​”

An over(in my opinion)grown tree limb, guided by the wind, rubs against the window of an apartment building.
A human in the apartment – annoyed and intrigued – attaches two contact microphones to the window, then spends the next few weeks processing and editing the recorded sounds.
And for what? Nothing, of course, nothing.
Nothing.

Composed and mixed by Suspektema.
Spring 2017.

C_C – Impendulo

[D!HR-34]

C_C

“Impendulo”

For its 34th release, Da ! Heard It Records is warming up the machines to trace some new paths.
Impendulo is C_C’s new cassette.
Packaged in quasi-monochrome illustrations with quasi-absurd architectural tendencies, the visuals emphasize the kinetic art and foreshadow what one is about to hear: chain reactions and strange angles; it all moves and it all hits.
This cassette is an absolute beat garage!
Think of a little place where things are done by hand, geared towards total customization, fine-tuning; truly without concession and C_C is the boss. He’s the one with his nose under the hood and adjusting everything by ear. In total contrast with factory and chain-work sound, C_C knows how to use a system as Low-Cost as Low-Fi. Not afraid of getting his hands dirty!
The electronic sound is played from the fingertips, and it’s audible: the patterns aren’t dull and the rhythms brilliant.
It also plays with codes, and plays with them in a laid-back way, arm hanging out the window, headlights fully on. It advances tirelessly, entertaining without using, definitely more auto-reverse than auto-stop. Natural born bottom-of-time, C_C plays it in four-wheel drive, for all terrains, and completely versatile in all respects. He alternates straight hitting lines, feedback turns, and reverb drifts, and allows himself to ride right in the middle, his kick as pressed as the pedal, larsen melodies comfortably settled in the backseat.
At full speed, it’s blinking from all sides, counterpoint at every corner. With always one ear on the rearview mirror, and the GPS evidently out of order… drifting away from the roots is inevitable. In Impendulo, one is thus neither here nor there, but rather on unknown territory with no markers, never safe, but always sound. Welcome to the fourth (rid)dimension, this four-track game that summons hormones and neurons, active listening, and active dancing.
The drum is electronic and its skin is unbreakable, and in a thousand miles, it will still be playing, unfettered. One hit up, one hit down, the rhythmics spar without any low hits and most importantly without the rotundity that fishing for sound can bring. With C_C, it’s refined and chiseled by ear on the mixing side. The composition is stripped of anything superfluous, reduced to the bones, and you feel it in your bones: trans, love it or leave it.

Hypercube – Genetic Transplant

[EEM022]

Hypercube

“Genetic Transplant”

Genetic Transplant album by Hypercube can be described as an inner journey into osmotic abstract ambient defining the space over post-humanity evaporated circuits and multi dimensional genetic modified patterns, a way to explore unpredictable forms and intramural visions in relation to life and extinct systems.

The resulting music does at times resemble anxious rhythms and complex configurations of tranquillized expressions.
