Linear Obsessional is proud to present “Tape Loops” – the fruit of several months’ labour by the Colorado based composer c.reider. Getting deep into the process and working with thrift-store cassettes he uses a number of radical techniques to create his tape loops, including lengthening the tape, shredding it , making new tapes from tiny fragments and reassembling them.
Per Mr CH’AB
La passione per la musica è iniziata dall’ascolto dell’hardcore
e frequentando la sua scena underground.
Nel 2009 i suoi primi techno live
suonando sia in feste legali e feste gratuite.
Co-fondatore del progetto Loungesquatt
è diventato promotore e creatore di party tra Milano e Berlino.
Le sue tracce techno sono influenzate dai suoni mentali, psichedelici, ipnotici e sperimentali.

Alexei Borisov and Sergey Kostyrko have been working together since they had a joint perfomance with Daichi Yoshikawa and Egor Miroshnikov at Theses festival in Kemerovo in November 2014.

For the first of two release for Netlabel Day 2015, we have a debut release on Happy Puppy by the musician, writer, listener and Vuzh Music netlabel head C. Reider.
C. has a huge catalog of work as an early champion of the Creative Commons movement, and even before that with mailing good old-fashioned cassette tapes around the world for years. To get a larger sense of his background, visit his bio page.
He is especially a believer of the sharing of music, and the creation of music from sharing. As we are here at Happy Puppy (with a small handful of exceptions), C. Licenses his music as derivative-friendly, hoping to encouraging more music creation, as you will also notice by the large attribution list below for the compositions on this release.

The Haase+Santis duo was initiated through a visit by the violinist Johannes Haase to the Open City of Amereida – the place where sculptor and noise artist Óscar Santis currently resides. There, they began to develop a bond in relation to music as sound structure. The improvisations they realize are based on free sessions, wherein a dialogue is generated at the intersections of these structures. These are the intersections that articulate and give shape to the music.
Concerning the sound structures that bind them together, their relationship is highly complex in the sense that in certain moments we see extremely opposed planes proceeding independently, a radicalism of timbre and brutality of sound that carries an involuntary dissociation to the ear in order to contain the sounds that the duo presents us. At the same time, in other moments we see artists highly polished from a sonic precision and beauty that generates a temporal confusion, leading us to a careful and precise internal listening.
The duo articulates their discourse from a sonic radicalism, making sure that their music does not permit the listener to release his or her attention from listening at any time. The sonic turbulence generated by the noise of Óscar, and the constant evolution generated by the tension of Haase’s violin makes listening to this album a beautiful challenge for attentive listening, which these days have so much forgotten. But above all, the sonic radicalism, and the freedom of form presented by the duo are appreciated.

It seems like an age since we released Ascetic’s A Network of Lines That Intersect,
a brooding mixture of dark techno and ambient industrial noise.
Originally cutting his teeth on breakcore under his Machinochrist
moniker, the UK-born, Berlin-based artist has more recently been
refining this brand of intense and atmospheric pseudo-techno.
There is plenty to get your teeth into with The Citizen Made of Glass,
from solid stompers to beatless wonders, all of them carrying a
dexterity and depth that mark Ascetic out as a producer of genuine
Linear Obsessional launches back into action with this evocative and hallucinatory album of new sound works by the Canary Islands based artist Paco Rossique. Created from treated field recordings and the unique timbres of the prepared piano – “Collages & Dispersions” is a wonderful piece of work that rewards many listens. The download comes with a deluxe PDF booklet of texts and extraordinary images by the artist.
From 1979 to 1983, the Australian Terse Tapes label made cassette compilations. These are in danger of becoming “classics”, a complete betrayal of the energy that made them. There is no better antidote to cloying nostalgia than the corpse getting up and refusing the funeral.
So instead say that from 1979 to 2015, Terse Tapes made compilations, and here is more of the same. You could put it on a cassette if that matters.
I invited a few people I know, and they invited a few people they know, and music started to arrive in my inbox. I refused to listen to any of it until April Fools day. No one curated anything, although some people were nice enough to chase up their friends.
Having heard this music over the last 24 hours I can divide it into some useful ‘sides’, but keep in mind you are able to arrange it however you like in this non-linear wonderland in which we are trapped.
Side A: people who have doubts about music.
Side B: people who do not fear a pretty tune.
Side C: people that make graphs and grids.
Side D: people who could plausibly perform in a public ale house
Side T: time lords

Organised by Tom Ellard at Terse Tapes, Sydney, Australia. Contents made in the USA, UK, Canada, Switzerland, Australia and other parts of the universe that man may visit from time to time. May contain nuts.
First piece is based on BACH motif, with four blocks of repetitions, interrupted by electronic manipulations of preceding pitches, imagining music of J.S. Bach that is flying in outer space in some Voyager capsule, enlightened and decayed by the astrophysical powers.
Second piece is made of F pitches taken from a harp, M referring to a loose meter they appear in,forming illusion of patterns. Pitches are electronically manipulated to form a level of material that replaces silence. Imagining music of M. Feldman being played/listened buried in the earth.
“Eirian” is a Japanese word which means “Alien” and the title of Gandolfo Ferro’s first release with Sucu Music.
In the best science fiction tradition, the theme of this concept album is alien abductions, something which, we are sure, will interest more than some of you out there. The music is what you might call dark ambient, but there are also sprinklings of ‘old-time’ electronica that widen the sound palette and make this release a very enjoyable trip to the recesses of unknown galaxies and back.
