Nel caldo estivo arriva un brivido dark ambient, un giro nei meandri di incalcolabili pazzie e bianche muri che assetati aspettano schizzi di sangue. In Your Ears ha nuovamente l’onore di pubblicare una traccia di Snowfade aka Marco Grosso, una delle migliori menti elettroniche del nostro paese e non solo, ascoltando Solitude lo potrete capire molto bene.
In the warm summer comes a dark ambient thrill, a ride in the meanders of incalculable madness and white walls thirsty waiting for blood sketches. In Your Ears is again honored to publish a track of Snowfade aka Marco Grosso, one of the best electronic minds in our country and not only, listening to Solitude you can understand it very well.
Get the nightmare
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 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 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.
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.
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
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.
“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.
A new artist comes to Kahvi now, Circa State appeared in my inbox recently with a nice chilled selection in the form of a demo which grabbed my attention from the start. A blend of ambient and emotional sounds, with more acoustic inspired elements, taking you on a journey through a summer field with the grass sweeping in the breeze. RnB beats threaten to blow away the gentle vibes, but never too overpowering.
A great introduction to the hot summer months by Circa State.
Escape Now!’s music went more and more microscopic in the years after 2003. Starting from the IDM electronica point he eventually arrived in the ambient domain. Lichtung is a fifty minutes laid back microscope universe, visualizing this path.
Please do not wonder, the release will be published as catalogue number 100, that was not set until now. A festive compilation was thought to go with this number but this was not realized so far, so let’s party and compile later, maybe with the 150 or 200 : )
“MOVIL/INMOVIL (Mobile/Immobile) is a sonic exploration of two worlds as seemingly distinct as are mobile musical applications and a Steinway grand piano.
This work of Luis Marte and Roger Delahaye aka Poltamento concentrates on a single musical space-time and, in the form of a single perspective, two dimensions that are both physical and categorical, the mobility and portability of electronic and granular software on one side, and the immobility of the great acoustic giant on the other. Categories of space and size, which are also of texture and dissimilar sonic thickness, nevertheless fused and assumed as part of a whole by ambient moments that are also impressionistic …
These fragments, wherein the warmth of the wood and the glitch’s abstraction solidify into a single entity, show us that the possible “N” worlds can converge in a singular sound synthesis, where the extremes touch and coexist, where, as Einstein said a century ago, motion or status depends on the viewer’s point of view, in this case the listener.”

Rain EP by alternative hip hop/electronica producer Torin Bell, is a collection of three short instrumentals filled with peace, tranquility and joy. The relaxed, unhurried pace of the music, playful melodies and unique chord progressions, definitely make you rest and catch the moment. Amazing tunes that stay with you long after listening.
“The project is centered around water and each track uses the rain within it’s backdrop to provide a soothing white noise alongside various synth waves to create the coming and going of the rain in the spring.
I wanted to create a atmosphere of peace and the rain usually helps in doing so.”(Torin Bell)
Deep emotional atmospheres combined with rich melodies, complex rhythms and glitches will get your attention. Mood will change upon the journey full of sound surprises. Enjoy the combination of electronic and physical acoustic experiments.
