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.
DR, born 1982, is a sound artist from Lower Saxony, Germany. Uses synthesizers, acoustic instruments (Ukulele & Cavaquinho ) field recordings, tape loops & granular synthesis to create melancholy ambient / drone soundscapes.
it is called “Nina Sergejewna”, the main person in a beautiful book from Lydia Tschukowskaja

Half Evidence (a french free improvisation duo formed in 2012 by Charles premier & Kecap Tuyul) is currently on hiatus since summer 2016, but their story isn’t finished. Amongst hours of material created between 2012 and 2016 they have selected a few tracks recorded in april 2013, gathered in a new album : Veines. In these sessions, Charles premier played several of his home-made instruments, while Kecap Tuyul used prepared guitar and voice.
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.

recording, mastering and design by EMERGECRANK STURGEON explores the unwieldy commingling of noise and performance through the use of thrift store electronics, incongruous actions, and costuming reminiscent of supermarket aesthetics. Whether meditating on a roll of amplified packing tape or instructing an audience to fill Crank’s pants with water, the result has been a double-decade odyssey of noisy mishaps, inflatable parades, and accidental theater; feats destined for the shelves of ever-grinning and mesmerizing obscurity.
Ayato & Naoki Ishida have been working together via file exchange since the early 2010s. 3 years after their album “Red_control rec.played” , they offer us a split album recorded between 2015 and 2016 : Tapes Outtakes. Here, as the title suggests, the 2 artists have both worked with magnetic tapes. Ayato has used an old Revox reel-to-reel tape player to create evolving loops of various instruments, while Naoki Ishida has used other (undisclosed) methods and material. Two ways to use the tape as an instrument and tool for experimental composition.
This is a recording of a soundwalk observed from a first person’s point of listening. As all sound recordings do, this soundwalk recording presents what the specific one person hears when she went on a particuar walk. The unusual feature of this work as a soundwalk recording is that it also provides an insight to the thoughts that occur to her while she is on the walk, rendered as a voice letter to an unidentified acquaintance. This reveals personal stories and memories related to the places she visits as part of the soundwalk.

“José Gallardo launches through Pueblo Nuevo his latest album ‘Humores‘ (pn137). Unlike his previous ‘Sinfonía para un hombre solo… en su casa‘ (pn107, 2016), which exhibits the realization of field recordings as a guiding thread, ‘Humores‘ makes reference to the moods or temperaments according to the classification of Hippocrates, considered the father of medicine. It is, thus, a kind of suite that is composed of emotional representations instead of dances.
The humoral theory, in force from Greek Antiquity until after the Renaissance, comprised four temperaments: Choleric, Phlegmatic, Melancholic and Sanguine. Each one of them was associated with an organ and with a secretion of the body (yellow bile, phlegm, black bile, and blood, respectively) and health would depend on the balance between these elements. The word ‘humor’ comes from the Latin ‘humore’ which means liquid or fluid.
As a means of opening, Gallardo adds a fifth state, that of ‘Ansiedad’ (Anxiety), where music tries to connect itself with the future from the present. This is the only track on which we hear an instrument played in a traditional way or without being deconstructed, the Saz of the Middle East, and from this material is apparently also extracted to create adjacent sounds.
Predominant in this album are rough textures, carefully agitated sounds obtained by microsampling – often treated in a granular way, and cacophonous conglomerations, almost always in counterpoint with their opposites, as in the game of resonances and punctual sounds of ‘Melancolía’ (Melancholy). The last track, ‘Sanguíneo Pasional’ (Sanguine Passional), is divided into two very clear moments, the second of them based on a calm drone that brings peace or, better, balance, to close ‘healthily’ this interesting set of music.”

Holzkopf is Western Canadian musician Jacob Audrey Revington Taves. A decidedly non-traditional musician, they have mainly used budget bin samplers and drum machines in combination with tape recorders, mixing board feedback and raw data sounds. Varying from deconstructed dance music to harsh rhythmic noise to delicate and soft soundscapes, Holzkopf performances channel influences as diverse as industrial, dub, microsound and gospel musi
“Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel is always honored to present. This time it’s my honor -and I really mean it- to present #soloshow, recorded by the very talented Gerardo Figueroa.
The story begins when Lorena López Araya, Chilean artist based in Villa Alemana, gave Gerardo a series of audio files containing readings of poems of her own to “do as he pleased”. This was 2016. A couple of years later, he selected fragments of one of those files and decided experimenting with them at a very special occasion: an improvised live-act in the context of a poetry festival in Padre Hurtado, where he shared his choices using a DJ software (Mixxx).
#soloshow is mainly and strictly organized around the poem, so each and every sound/noise in it is nothing but a mixed-up/looped/reversed/accelerated/paused single female voice. Volume goes up and down sometimes, speed and pitch also swing. Sometimes, words mingle in unison, becoming strange and detached, with no clear message behind.
Inside Inside Inside Inside is repeated several times, while words like hurting, crack, pouring pouring and oscillating are heard louder. Deconstructed and reconstructed verses, ordering/disordering patterns, altering the way we are used to listen to poetry. Words tend to disappear, resurfacing reversed, in seductive, odd-to-listen, hard-to-write utterances.
Sewing machines, a Ford factory with a row of ladies working, alienated; a rusty, slow truck down the countryside, an electric hammer breaking up some hard cement, a plane moving propeller before taking off, a minimal music electronic party or an Atari machine stuck in the middle of a game are some of the sounds this record seems to evoke, in seamless fashion.
It is not an easy record, this one: #soloshow is a poem turning into a sound piece, mixed and remixed using a limited amount of effects, turning prose into a journey through noise, in a deep sea, full of different textures, where voice becomes something so disparate you can’t even trace the source, a poem crowned with an powerful, alluring image:
D I R T Y B L O O D.”

All the sound’s fat and the juiciest original groove is always on the periphery. He is born in the backyard, in the underground, on outskirts. Proceeding from this I left Petersburg. For several months I made a number of musical sketches in the industrial Kirovo-Chepetsk and completed this experiment in the border Svetogorsk, among the moist forests of the Karelian Isthmus.
Ghettojukebox is not an album, it’s a finger pointing to what’s going on. Eight compositions – eight metaphors for different, quite specific situations that took place in the Russian reality in the fall of 2017.
If images, such as photography, can reproduce the moment, then the sound restores the experience of the moment itself. Any sound is born in the oscillation, the reality vibrates chaotically, and tongues shake the air of what’s going on, filling the space with feelings, giving birth to a deep, unique vibe, in a tangle of perfectly natural rhythms.
My artistic task was to fix impulses and vibrations of the situation inside the situation and to transform them into the vibrations of your speakers. Using the natural plasticity of sound as a material, I made a kind of map, under which the listener has the opportunity to set foot on the territory woven from the material of paneled five-story building and the blackened boards of forgotten Russian villages. In the ratio of noise and silence to hear the mysticism of the forest, to feel people, dogs and the life of the Russian periphery.
Federico Dal Pozzo is an Italian sound artist , electroacoustic composer and musician. His works are based upon concrete objects and the transfiguration and perception of the sound and audio- spatialization . He works with Max/Msp. He does compositions for dance and theatre companies , audio-Installations and concerts.
Today we are proud to publish his latest piece Untitled_PaHaD , a mysterious and subtly progressive composition, where where liquid textures swirl like a delicate swarm of otherwordly voices. In this new work, once again Dal Pozzo’s use of digital tools is very fluid and organic, completely at the service of a higly personal musical vision.Credits:
