The Portuguese Wal Thisney is one of the main protagonists of the underground world of netlabels, a tireless producer of beautiful records and accessible to all through the name your price formula.
His works have been released on many of the world’s best netlabels, and we are very honored to publish his work. His music is something that could be called neo classical, and it is a pleasure to be enjoyed calmly and without haste, letting everything flow.
Wal Thisney is the demonstration that out of the market there are beautiful music, made by characters who deserve great attention.
Max Bober is a musician born in the windy south of Argentina, near Atlantic ocean and the Andes mountains. He studied violin, composition, philosophy and other interesting things in Buenos Aires. He is interested in experimenting with the ideas of silence, space, and resonance. Since 2017 he is living, studying and composing in Warsaw, Poland. When he is not thinking about music, or writing, or working, he likes to walk near the river and drink wine watching to the sunset.
Tired of always being doing something. Always always always. Tapping, clicking, meeting, partying, exercising, networking. Working hard, playing hard, living hard.
Keep it up like that and listen Single-O by Walt Thisney.
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.

Daniel Robert Lahey’s latest takes the listener into his inner thoughts, and reflection on the creative process.
Daniel Robert Lahey is not an impulsive composer. He takes a lot of time working throuhg his pieces, developing them a little bit at a time. This kind of process is prone to rigorous mental processes by which he works on an idea only to realize it didn’t lead where to a good conclusion. So, it becomes a game of re-thinking his ideas through multiple times.
On After Un-Rethinking Things Again Daniel documents several works that developed over a longer period of time. Pieces that were more difficult in composition, but more rewarding in their results.
Contemporary classical music album by Russian projects Alex Mason and The Minor Emotion in collaboration. Music that can stop the heart. Music that evokes the most painful memories, the nostalgia of unimaginable power in that place, at that time, over that man. Music that will stir up something in the depths of the soul, in its very darkness, something that can not even be imagined.
Daniel Robert Lahey returns to CerebralAudio with a suite of four works on Epiphany Counterfeit.
This release starts with the serene, floating Given Time. This work is brooding at times, filled with internal tensions and conflict. It has the feeling of the internal struggle that we go through with our own mortality, that relationship with time that we cannot escape and yet we have a feeling of want or need to understand, a desire to bargain with it to understand our lives and our desires better.
Daniel has a penchant for offering pieces with titles that are puns, and Present Tents is no exception. At first it seems to be an odd title, is it a play on the military phrase “present arms”? or maybe it’s a reference to camping equipment. And, then there is the play on the phrase “present tense”, in which case it could be a reference to current tension, or a reference to grammar. Based on the context of the work, I would think that it is a play on the grammatical construction, but then again, maybe Daniel has a fondness for camping gear that he hasn’t told me about.
The third track is the main focus of this release. It’s a reminder that sometimes things we think, or things that we are lead to believe can be false. On one level it’s an interesting struggle that artists go through actually working to build knowledge, and to find a perspective on that knowledge to be able to communicate it in another form. It’s almost a disaster to realize that the knowledge that has been built is not accurate, it’s false, and potentially destroys the work(s) one has built around them.
The final piece of this release is a another playful title from Daniel, Quatre Morceaux, can be a reference to this release (which contains four pieces), or it could be a reference to the work itself being comprised of four pieces. Either way it’s a very fitting way to close out Epiphany Counterfeit.
Today we are proud to announce the latest Daniel Robert Lahey release on The Cerebral Audio Netlabel: Not Sure This Goes With Your Outfit. On his third full release with CerebralAudio Daniel maintains the excellence of his music with a few new twists.
About Not Sure This Goes With Your Outfit
While the title is amusing, there is something of a statement that can go along with it. Daniel has chosen to point rather humorously to the idea that really this music isn’t intended for the stuffy environments of the performance hall. It’s for everyone, no matter what clothes they are wearing. Even if they are making choices to appear as unique and individual as they can.
Classical music was never really intended to be the domain of the elitist. It was music for the people. Mozart proved this with his popular opera’s written for the general public instead of being written for kings or royalty.
On another level, Daniel’s selection of this title could be seen as a commentary on the musical establishment. The question isn’t whether this is classical music, but rather a statement that “this” work doesn’t fit with an “establishment” conception of style.
There’s also a third layer of meaning to this title. Something of an internal joke. There are points at which you might be listening to this work and thinking, “how does that fit in?” That’s when you will discover the playful side of Daniel, occasionally hiding little pieces of incongruous material as a joke for your ears. These tiny non-sequitur could be seen as not going with the “outfit” of the composition as a whole.
Daniel Robert Lahey makes his debut on CerebralAudio with Uncultivated Upland. Daniel started fiddling with the keys of a piano as soon as he could reach them and whenever he could get away with it. He took guitar lessons at 10 and got very serious about it by the age of 15. (Of course, he figured it would help him pick up girls.) He devoted 12 years to the classical guitar repertoire before he’d had enough of so much work for no pay.
Toward the end of his time as a guitarist, he started playing around with Synthesizers. He has been playing keyboards for over 50 years at this point. He grew up with a love for classical music, and has studied many of the great composition masters through the years. This knowledge of classical music is what informs his current works.
On Uncultivated Upland Daniel presents six new works that reflect his perspective on life today. Some of these compositions are a reflection of life in our world today, sometimes from
a slightly off-center perspective (like on “The Zookeeper Escapes” or “Baked”), while other times appealing on a purely emotional basis (like “Uncultivated Upland” or “Tears”).
Give these compositions a close listening. There is a lot to experience and a lot to savor in these well crafted, exquisitely produced recordings.
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.
