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.
Aũkštai (“Floors”) is a result of how overthinking leads the mind to multiple directions while searching for answers in the surroundings. These 5 stories reflect on how the mind works in different situations, whether it’s a cup of coffee in the morning by the favourite clock ticking down the time of waiting, taking a dog for a walk with thoughts of self-doubt, or whether it’s stone-tied drowning in the sea of paralysed body cells.
Dreamlike walk through inner depths, as if you were walking on thick ice surrounded by misty void and could wake up any second. The sounds reflect a journey through grief, anxiety, finding peace in solitude.
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.

The music of WHΛLT THISИEY is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths.
WHΛLT THISИEY selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same quantities that emerges from encounters between the past and the present, drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life again, so to produce the same effect of the original freshness and spontaneity, a mirror that transforms it absorbs and reflects.
WHΛLT THISИEY mixes impressionist piano atmospheres, spoken wordcore, drone, experimental, library, hypnotic escapism music. WHΛLT THISИEY aka Fernando Cerqueira is the founder member of Thisco record label and publisher of Antibothis anthologies.
Fernando Cerqueira was the founder member of the late 80’s SPH tape / record label.

“erasing memories” was an idea developed for music to live and die on stage. Taking the past concept of music that dies on stage, Carlos Suero composed this unique piece of one hour, with various segments within, for this purpuse only. But, after reconsidering the idea of losing these tracks for ever; and having talks with friends, he decided to release it in order to making it avalable for everyone that couldn´t make to that night.
The night was the concert played the 17/11/2018 and organised by RATORMOUTE in Madrid.
The day after he set up the instruments again like the night before and performed the same concert this time in the studio.
The music included here is without cuts or extras added, its is exatcly as it was the night before; live.
Recorded at HomeStudios (Madrid).
Mastered by CSH at HomeStudios (Madrid).

TERR110: Boreal soundscape collage accompanied by the lull of balmy guitar. Seamless loop recorded over a week-long residency in Inari, Finland.
“I took part in a media workshop group’s travel to Inari, bringing together different artistic visions in order to gather a multimedia report of the Northern seasonal foliage, and ultimately organize a collective art exhibition. The residency was in a cabin beside Nukkumajoki river and my project in the group was to record the journey photographically and acoustically.
I was mesmerized by Inari’s fjelds, lakes and aurora-filled nights, the pristine flora surrounding Nellim near the Russian border and one particularly important place of interest was Siida Museum; a rich crash course on the indigenous Sámi culture, history and the seriously endangered Inari-Sámi language. To this day, Sámi people keep facing systematic discrimination in many aspects.
The loan word “Kaamos” doesn’t have a literal translation in English despite its unmissable significance in our culture. It could be split into two contexts: firstly the near literal translation “polar night” implying the geographical lack of sunrise, and secondly an associated mental state as a consequence: winter depression. The bane of northeners.
Post-trip, I recorded guitar to fit the field recording collage for a seamless audio installation loop as part of our touring mixed media art exhibition of the same name. The opening in December was at our workshop Vimma, with Turku Main Library to follow later in spring.”
Detroit sound artist and producer Rich Sudney goes dark this time with his release Autumn Rehearsal. Having a deeper sound then his previous releases, DF-5 takes a hibernating attitude fit for the winter months. Deep, dark and deliberate but not void of his signature musical structure. Few are more reminiscent of sound tracks from the movie Koyaanisqatsi. Others are just uplifting as usual. Rich Sudney directs us in his sound to ready us for rehearsal.
