Mental Escape Pod
alias: Dabit Vocem Austria; Oni_pelted_by_beans; Das Rheintaler Nachtwerk; Felix Montfort;

Born in 1977 in the far west of Austria, life for a hungry littlev electronica nerd was hard. My electronic music life started at the day I saw Aphex Twin’s “Come to Daddy” at MTV. In the next 2 years i collected what I got and also found some really relaxing works from him and other artists. With the purchase of Aphex’ “Selected Ambient Works 2” I jumped into soundscapes and Ambient sounds. In 1998 I started making own noises with a tracker and some free ware sounds. Then some personal problems kicked in 2002 and I did nothing until the winter of 2009/2010. In December 2010 Dabit Vocem Austria was born and 1 year later Mental Escape
Pod followed. And it never stopped until today.

Macronoise – My Steps Lead Backwards

[393]

Macronoise

“My Steps Lead Backwards”

Easy listening from Prague now, from guest artist Macronoise. The closest definition I can get for the style is somewhere between the 60s pop and Solar Fields (a familiar face on Kahvi).

Professionally mixed, very listenable and easy to get into, and some diverse themes make this short four track EP a worthy addition to the Collective.

Lluvia Acida – Ciencia Sur

Lluvia Acida

“Ciencia Sur”

“We are musicians who live and create at the edge of the world, who over two decades have worked to represent through sound and image various aspects of our habitat. ‘Ciencia Sur‘ (Southern Science) continues this trajectory, addressing the subject of field research. This work was conceived as a musical and audiovisual journey through the imposing landscapes of Patagonia and Antarctica, where science is developed in extreme conditions, as it seeks to answer transcendental questions about the past, present and future of the planet we inhabit.

The composition and recording of these works developed between July and September, combining the use of synthesizers with the use of unusual resources, such as the recording of sounds and electromagnetic emissions emitted by laboratory instruments and the conversion into sound of fossil images and diagrams concerning Climate Change through special software. We launched it in the framework of the opening of the IX Latin American Congress of Antarctic Science, an event that in early October 2017 brought together more than 300 researchers in the city of Punta Arenas (Chile).

The presentation of these works is accompanied by images provided by the Department of Communications and Education of the Chilean Antarctic Institute, which shows excavations in Cerro Guido (Torres del Paine commune), marine studies in the Magallanes channels, and images of the last two versions of the Antarctic Scientific Expedition (ECA), the latter including recordings made with drones on Chilean scientific bases in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands.

For us, it is very important to link art with the science that is being realized in the territory that we inhabit, because we believe that being of the Magallanes concerns not only knowing about our regional past, but also in imagining a future based on the search for knowledge. This work is dedicated to the women and men who study both the remote past and the uncertain future, entering the southern bastions. There, between the wind and the ice, they are discovering the keys to our destiny.”

Ivan Black – We are such stuff as dreams are made on

[brhnet51]

Ivan Black

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”
A Quote from Shakespeare’s The Tempest inspired me to see how relevant the story is against todays lives and politics? Little has changed, people are still seeking revenge or power, but hopefully like in the story love for each other will eventually win the day. A dream perhaps but a nice one to think that eventually we will put our differences behind us and start to trust and teach other.

David Evan Krebs – Tides

[CAEX0005]

David Evan Krebs

“Tides”

This is music for sound explorers who want to explore the canyons of sound but keep near the touchstone of melody. David Alan Krebs’ “Tides” discovers gently evolving drone sounds and, in particular, the textures within sound variations. Each track feels like a visit to a garden of diverse Baja California—each piece is distinct, solitary, spiky in its own way, and pleasantly alien. The pieces range from less than a minute to a few minutes each. The listener is pulled into a single musical in each track, which is investigated thoroughly and dispassionately. Listening is a pleasure rather than a laboratory explosion. Every piece presents the listener with its own bit of sonic intrigue. This is music that is clinical in its experiments while retaining its humanity. The artist eschews beats, time-signature-melodies, and pat ambient themes. Instead, pieces like “Draping Slowly” and “Crevices” contain music which neither panders to nor pulverizes the listener. No two pieces are faintly alike, but all the pieces fit well together. In “Cloud Base (Stage Two)” the drone hovers in that angelic space between the familiar and the strange, where the insights feel within grasp but the conclusions are wordless. The dozen tracks which make up “Tides” are ideal listening for an Autumn day, or an autumnal mood. David Alan Krebs takes us on a journey, and we are delighted to hike along.

Daniel Robert Lahey – No Cure For Music

[CACL0007]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“No Cure For Music”

Daniel Robert Lahey wields the tools of a trained classical musician in pursuit of ambient music with direct and fresh (but never simple) melodic charms. Each of his pieces bears a symphonic influence, but each piece aims to provide the listener a listening experience of intriguing sound-on-sound. Rather than the sunny sleepwalk of new-age-style waves of saccharine melody, Lahey weaves complex themes throughout each composition.

This is not music for everyone—but it is music for anyone. In “No Cure”, Daniel Robert Lahey takes the listener in for a digital scan, and the diagnosis is positive for sound. This is sound to take the indolence of an idle hour and turn it into the therapy of intriguing sonic exploration.

“City”

A city that wakes up.

The sun illuminating the last leaves of thirsty trees.

The dark has forgotten a book of unresolved questions.

Fabio Keiner – BLACK RAIN

[CAAM0012]

Fabio Keiner

“BLACK RAIN”

Fabio Keiner explores the landscape of the post-nuclear fallout of Nagasaki and Hiroshima on Black Rain.

In the days following the United States bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II, the residents were left to deal with the fallout from the devices. Nuclear fallout is commonly known as Black Rain. Fabio Keiner has recorded a series of works that looks at the exposure to radioactive fallout in terms of ambiguous time perspective. The X on Black Rain could be interpreted as days, weeks or even months.

Fabio Keiner hails from Vienna, Austria. He creates musical pieces and photographs. His credits include his contribution to the soundtrack to the 2015 award winning short film “Reformation” by director Hoyon Jung.

Active in the netlabel scene for years, his soundscapes, melodies and drones criss-cross the borders among ambient, dark ambient, abstract experimental and melodic electronica. His work is atmospheric and imaginative, with a sound that seems narrative without quite telling specific stories in defined words. His releases have appeared on numerous labels, including Treetrunk Netlabel, Webbed Hand Netlabel, Petroglyph Music, and Cian Orbe netlabel.

Nobody’s Nail Machine

“Fallout Nevada Remastered”

Fallout of Nevada is a Russian Fallout 2 total conversion project. The development project started in 2009.
The developers sought to preserve the basic principles of the original, such as moral and ethical issues, post-nuclear wasteland gloomy atmosphere, black humor, and so on.
Soundtrack for Fallout of Nevada (in ambient and dark ambient styles) was written by composer Alexei Trofimov (aka Nobody’s Nail Machine). It is close to the design of the original series soundtrack by Mark Morgan (Fallout 1 & 2). These compositions have found great resonance among the fans of Fallout of Nevada and connoisseurs of the genre of ambient music.

Grid Resistor – Mu

[CAEX0004]

Grid Resistor

“Mu”

Thomas Jackson Park (formerly known as Mystified) has undertaken a new approach to post-industrial age music with Grid Resistor. For this project he used contact microphones to make recordings of machines and appliances. These recordings were then processed digitally to find the hidden harmonics and rhythms. His latest release, Mu, focuses on finding the harmonies and rhythms in the noise produced by old shortwave radios.

Grid Resistor is Thomas Jackson Park’s first post-Mystified project. The Grid resister series is limited to twenty four releases, one for each letter of the Greek alphabet. (With a couple of side-project collaborations.) Mu is the final recording to be released in the series.

Rich Sudney – Parading Out The Devil

[DF-3]

Rich Sudney

“Parading Out The Devil”

He who is in his late thirties, stares out into the open vast waters of northern lake Michigan. Blue sky above him reminds him of past wilderness adventures, hiking, camping, enjoying the company of no-one else but his solitude. As the ferry boat rocks ever so gently with each wave, his stare becomes hypnotic in the anticipation of traveling to a different world then he’s used to. From the cluttered exhausted saturated air of the motor city to the crisp clean everything of those islands in the middle of this lake. Traveling on a whim, spontaneous plans of going to meet and shake hands with his fears are all in the back of his mind. “You can plan for everything under the sun. But you’ll never plan for that banana peel you’ll slip on” he recalls from reading mystic literature. “I know I’ll make it” saying to himself in a reassuring vibe. Carefully planning every spot, step and strategy to get to a small island by kayak for months now. “Just remember the banana peel!”
