Thuoom – Circadian

[thump319]

Thuoom

“Circadian”

Circadian is the sixth full-length album under name Thuoom. The starting point was an hour-long live improvisation played in a cave (Ambient Evening 6, Parainen, Finland). During this event, Tuomo did an a cappella piece while Barque Sound Experiment (aka BSE) played synthesizers. While for most of the tracks there are no hints of synths, two tracks feature BSE sounds extensively. Nevertheless, Tuomo considers this his first a cappella full-length. The end result features more relaxed ambient sounds than the previous release, Fokus.

Instruments used on this record: Human voice alongside Arturia Microbrute Analog Synthesizer & Korg MS-2000, all echoing in a cave.

Various – Into The Rift Volume Two

[CAAN0002]

Various

“Into The Rift Volume Two”

The theme “World Wide Storms” for Into The Rift Volume Two, was inspired by looking at the world around us, the events and issues that are facing us. Whether those events are political, social, environmental, or something else, everyone has been touched by some looming storm in front of us.

Part of the fun in making a theme like this was that it left the artists open to interpretation. It could be literal, metaphor, allegory, or any of other ideas that the artists had in mind. And there are fifteen very different perspectives on the storms in our world today.

But there is also a consistency to this release. It’s not just a collection of recordings thrown together. Each artist has contributed a work that fits within the theme, making for a recording that is more experience than it’s predecessor.

The seventeen tracks on Into The Rift Volume Two represent a lot of different thoughts on the world, right now. But, I am optimistic about one thing: this is a work that will transcend current events.

SoundChaser – Drone Thoreau One

[CAEX0003]

SoundChaser

“Drone Thoreau One”

SoundChaser has been fascinated with the concept of transformation. Especially with the concept of taking a single piece of source audio and transforming it into something completely different, something that is un-recognizable from it’s original form. This release is exactly an example of such a transformation.

Starting with a public domain reading of Henry David Thoreau’s Woof of the Sun, SoundChaser took the recording and mangled, manipulated, chopped up, layered, and reassembled it into a work that is completely different from what it started off as. And, after completing transformation he found that he couldn’t leave well enough alone, and further modified two of the layers, which produced a second version that is nearly identical and yet different from the first version.

So, Drone Thoreau One version 1 & 2 form the main listening portion of this release. However, here is where the fun begins: SoundChaser has decided to go a step further by including all the original stems
(layers) of the tracks used to create this release. There are two reasons for this:

SoundChaser believes some people might enjoy listening to the individual stems on their own (especially the Drone stem, which gets mixed into the background in the main tracks), and
He wants others to take the tracks and create their own works. Fold them, spindle, mutilate them, add beats, add other instruments, make them into something else. The less recognizable, the better.

Scott Lawlor – Night On The Great Beach

[CAAM0010]

Scott Lawlor

“Night On The Great Beach”

Scott Lawlor is a sonic explorer of great skill and knowledge. For this work he found a passage in The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod by Henry Beston that was appealing to him and set out to interpret it as an audio work.

This work is comprised of three pieces, the titles of which are each a passage from the book: “…they fear, rather, the energies and creatures to whom night gives power.” and “Yet to love thus, to know only artificial night is as absurd and evil as to know only artificial day.”

Stylistically this work is reminiscent of 1970’s Klaus Schulze recordings, like Timewind.

DR – This Way

[CAAM0009]

DR

“This Way”

Dominic Razlaff (aka DR) returns to CerebralAudio with a new release: This Way.

Dominic’s minimal approach to drone music makes for excellent listening any time: driving, or studying, working or meditating.

This Way is a statement about music, and particularly drone works. He is sticking close to the original Brian Eno inspired concept of drone works: they should be minimal in terms of structure and movement. They have the capacity to both be listened to and ignored at the same time. Ambient music by it’s very nature, is an audio experience that enhances the environment.

MiDiLe – Take Off And Learning

[SCM-1702]

MiDiLe

“Take Off And Learning”

The album is conceived as a three-part cosmic trip including a take-off, learning and final landing.

​Drawing from his deep and prolonged listening of composers like Krzysztof Penderecki, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jonny Greenwood, Brian Eno e John Cage, MiDiLe creates and assembles sonic landscapes of different nature

My Last Melancholy

“The Atmosphere (EP)”

Nikita Abramov in his My Last Melancholy project mixes electronic music with instrumental atmospheric metal very skillfully. The whole material is surprisingly relaxing. Top recommendation!

C. Reider – Young Music vol. 1

C. Reider

“Young Music vol. 1”

This first volume of collected early works spans the years 1988 to 1997, from when I was sixteen to twenty-six years old.

There’s a lot of guitar-based ambient and ambient-noise as well as proto-prog-goth instrumentals.

STREPITVSITVS – Valore Neutro

[brhnet48]

STREPITVSITVS

“Valore Neutro”

STREPITVSITVS is the new realisation of musical duo ASOLANMAC PROJECT and meant to be a sort of inner self-reflections as well as a very personal study about environmental connections between people and places: the focus is set on the Montello hill, near the Piave river, pretty close to our hometown. It’s a really peculiar site, where nature, hystory, legends and mysteries are all mixed up together in a unique way. This piece of music fully represent the feelings we share about it and express also the will to define the whole thing like the primal step of an introspective journey through memories and sensations, inspired by that magical location, under the form of an audio description.

Suspektema – “The threshold scarcely crossed that’s how it is​.​”

[SSSDlp08]

Suspektema

“The threshold scarcely crossed that’s how it is​.​”

An over(in my opinion)grown tree limb, guided by the wind, rubs against the window of an apartment building.
A human in the apartment – annoyed and intrigued – attaches two contact microphones to the window, then spends the next few weeks processing and editing the recorded sounds.
And for what? Nothing, of course, nothing.
Nothing.

Composed and mixed by Suspektema.
Spring 2017.
