iky iky & Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt – Cold Cell

iky iky & Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt

“Cold Cell”

Laetitia Schteinberg (iky iky) started her first solo recordings in the early 00’s. The resulting soundscapes were based on found noises, processed guitar sounds, lo-fi ambiences and field recordings. Most of her creations were inspired by the anxiety in the past and struggle for the right to live. Later she became heavily involved with sculpting new sounds using modern VST technologies either from scratch or using different sound sources, and creation of “evolving” textures of either electronic or electroacoustic nature.

Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt is a composer of experimental sunburnt soundscapes, the developer of the accidental guitar method, producer, founder, and curator of Friends of Sagittarius Records, he also makes “miniature film clips” to the release of his compositions.

Igor Har – Ona Prekrasna


Igor Har

“Ona Prekrasna”

Welcome again to Effluvia with the works of Igor Har. Mostly spoken, this album is quick but chilling. Whether you understand the language or not is irrelevant, Igor Har makes these two tracks very powerful with his voice. The background sound offer a deep, profound state of contemplation for the listener, and then there’s his voice. Laetitia Schteinberg, who introduced me to this eerie musician who I am immediately in love with, mentioned to me that what he is speaking are tales of vulgarity and alarm, so tasty. Lovely abstract stories semi told to give forth a vague numbness and nausea. Musings of a homosexual maniac who kidnaps little boys and performs obscene acts upon them. Something like that, and you can tell in his manner of speaking that he sure knows how to tell a story. I love this work, and hope I hear this voice all over the place. Much love for this piece. It won’t take long, so please listen with the lights off, all alone. I’d appreciate it. Effluvia would appreciate it.

Marta Zapparoli – Codex


Marta Zapparoli


I always draw my inspiration from the narratives and metaphors of a variety of impacts from different locations and situations.

These are often quite unique experiences within a certain period of time, landscape or corner of society.

Last year during several trips, I did many different recordings in East Europa. During my research on land, I found special places with particular energies. For example : unpredictable movements, defective technology, misplaced animals, dis-punctuality, unforeseen natural sound effects or other cataclysms of nature and unforeseen cataclysms in Humans.

The idea of this release is a deep construction, cut up, manipulation and deconstruction on many layer of these recordings, decontextualized from their origin, creating an absurd and surreal landscape in codex.

The technical part is done with field recordings on tape-recorders mixed, converted on digital software for mastering.

Marta Zapparoli aka Penelopex :
sound artist, performer, musician, studied fine arts and the soproano saxophone. In Bologna/Italy being involved in a series of experimental radio shows, multmedia performances,sound installations and various dance companies and aswell experimental multimedia theater events.

She now lives in Berlin where she is part of the Splitter Orchester Berlin, collaborating on sound installations with Martin Kuentz and a duo project with Alessandra Eramo next to her ongoing solo project.

The last decade she creates strong narrative sonic pieces using a open variety of recording techniques and custom analog tools as well as found instruments and objects.

Her sonic explorations bridging together the sensual quality of field recordings and versatile processing of live electronics. Within environmental phenomena, acoustic ecology, noise pollution, focusing on sonic narratives & human emotions through decomposition and real-time tape manipulation, sounds that are considered non-musical or overheard.

She Releasesd several albums on Umbrella Noise records, Idiosyncratics records, Nohmad records and Zeromoon records. She was also extensively featured WDR3 open studio elektronische musik, and a variety of experimental radio broadcasts.

Wapstan & Hal McGee – Cruststain


Wapstan & Hal McGee


CrustStain consists of paired 62-minute microcassette recordings by Wapstan (Martin Sasseville, Montreal, Quebec) and Hal McGee (Gasinesville, Florida). In early 2012 Wapstan recorded random and varied sounds from his daily life in Montreal (including radio and TV and sporting events, machine sounds, minimal electronics, etc.) in collage fashion on a microcassette and mailed it to McGee. McGee listened to Wapstan’s tape once through to get the general feeling of the flow of the sounds, and then he set about recording sounds from his daily life, from work, home, streets, restaurants, stores, conversations, etc. After McGee completed his tape he mixed his and Wapstan’s tapes together strictly on a one-to-one basis, arbitrarily, creating a happy-accident lo-fi crusty bruitistic dual-track juxtaposition celebration of the mundane drenched in tape hiss audio collage.

Ars Sonor & Meklabor – Reeds Remixed


Ars Sonor & Meklabor

“Reeds Remixed”

Effluvia is proud to present another collaborative work with Laetitia Schteinberg of Ars Sonor. Her last release on my little netlabel of sheer, unquestioned brilliance was an epic joint effort between more than a dozen artists, and though only one of those fellow sound manipulators joins with Sonor here, it is no less epic, challenging, and empowering. Another wonderful industrial statement on art at large, Meklabor (dmitry Vlasov) is the one who joins. Originally appearing on Effluvia as Sunburzt, here he brings his colorful sonic abrasive rhythms that glitch, crackle, expand, and shatter the inner menagerie, and never before has the shattering glass of lovecrafted critters of glass so punch-packing. Four tracks where these rhythms echo through haunted dance floors and cemetery raves. A filter of psychonautic junkyard bliss that will surely get your blood pumping with synapse pleasing vibrations, though don’t get the vibe that these tracks aren’t still a challenge to the untrained ear. A Rorschach test of psychedelic catacombs that may tickle something less pleasant than the funny bone. All of this mixed perfectly with Ars Sonor. Broad, dense ambient tundras as far as the ears can hear, a distant blizzard screaming whispers of despair inside your dreaming head, yet with such ecstasy at the same time. This album, as masterfully conjured as anything I’ve heard of either of these musical savants, will sure digest well for your ears. Falling through corridors, fingers bleeding into the reeds, the volcanoes wait for the footsteps to ascend, loudly, with a rhythm your arachnid ears cannot ever hope to hear. Thank you very much for your lovely sounds Meklabor, and to Laetitia Schteinberg, I hope, we hope, that you are doing well!

Thierry Massard – A EN TIO

abstract – ambient – sound

Thierry Massard


Monsieur Massard presents us with a project called “A EN TIO”, borrowing from the name of an enigmatic place he passes by from time to time.
This intriguing grocery, closed for ages, has been decaying and the outdoor sign is losing its letters. Originally, the sign read “ALIMENTATION”; then, after a few years, the “M” became a “W”, turning upside down, the “I” fell, and so on… Today, all that is left is “A EN TIO”.
The sounds in this work portray the decay process, the rough forces of nature and the passage of time (something we’re all familiarized with, although we tend to ignore).

Anton Mobin – Collision at Epsilonia

improvisation – abstract – experimental

Anton Mobin

“Collision at Epsilonia”

Sound artist and radio producer, the sound recording and the sound effects are the essential elements of his work of composition. Born in 1979, Anthony Baron lives in Paris and works where the improvisation and the sound creation is going full swing in the world. It is under the name of Anton Mobin that he produces his radio creations and that he occurs on stage. Anton Mobin’s sound activities evolve in two universes: the improvised music and the radio art. He defines himself his initiative in the continuity of the concrete music: his approach is directed on the listening of the sounds of the everyday life and their use in the radio composition, to develop an “extensive” concrete music.

Collision at Epsilonia (January 12, 2012)

Live performance for the Radio Programme Epsilonia dedicated to experimental music. It is broadcasted each thursday on Radio Libertaire, Paris / France (89.4 FM) from 22PM to midnight (GMT+1)
