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.

Alejandro Albornoz & Mika Martini – Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse

[pn124]

Alejandro Albornoz & Mika Martini

“Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse”

‘Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse’ is Alejandro Albornoz and Mika Martini getting dark and dirty with sound in Studio 2, University of Sheffield Sound StudiosMay 2016, Sheffield, UK. With analogue synthesizers, contact microphones and digital processes rendered live, rough sound objects are hewn from all manner of sources leading to short tracks that challenge and delight at the same time.

Alejandro and Mika go way back so their improvisations are extremely respectful. Track durations vary according to materials and techniques used. Sometimes the analogue electronics are dominant; sometimes recordings of live instruments such as pianos play a major role with electronic sounds clothing the real in soft noise and bristling modulations. There’s a real sense of ‘performance’ which is sometimes hard to hear in improvised electronic music. This sensibility jostles nicely with the ‘hands on’ approach to their kit and sounds, and makes me return to various tracks for ‘another listen’.

Concluding the improvised music are two ‘reconstructions’ – an out of real-time re-consideration of their recorded improvisations. Immediately one hears an alternate approach to time. Real Time is no longer important; the ‘moment’ doesn’t matter; sounds are ordered, re-ordered, edited, and ordered again. The final two tracks are like paintings: sounds once free to roam are rounded up, fed, watered, (caged maybe) but framed to form a journey that neatly concludes an exciting collaboration and an excellent disc.

Daniel Robert Lahey – After Un-Rethinking Things Again

[CACL0005]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“After Un-Rethinking Things Again”

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.

Daniel Robert Lahey – Epiphany Counterfeit

[CACL0004]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“Epiphany Counterfeit”

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.

Lezet – Intimate

ET115

Lezet

“Intimate”

We are so happy to release another Lezet’s work on Etched Traumas.
Lezet is Igor Jovanovic and comes from Požega, Serbia. Lezet is an one-man experimental music project in 2005 and he has released more than 45 albums. “Someone’s comment about the sound of Lezet (Igor Jovanović) was ‘like Zorn without saxophone’…And indeed, Lezet’s work could remind the results of “the game theory”, which John Zorn exercised on his debut “Locus Solus”, for example…The fact that Lezet doesn’t use only live instruments will probably disconnect it from the avant garde free jazz scene, but I suppose the coming under some specific style wasn’t the intent in this case anyway. It’s about free experiments with sound captures in search for the surprises. And it can’t be pretentious as such…” (extract taken from the “Black Syrup” zine #2 (Serbia, 2007)).

Winterberg – le sacre du noir

[phokes123]

Winterberg

” le sacre du noir”

In perfect attention the crystallized minescrafter digs through the depths of the heights. In hand luggage the best machines, he travels across noone’s heaven. Three rooms.

With Winterberg’s second album, we go a bit deeper into his work. After his self chosen “lock in with grand” some songs reached new levels. Grasping the moment, comfort of maturity. Between saturated thickness and clear raising there are also occasionally surprises.

Over three hours of music has been found for this album, well portioned in three parts. Five years have passed since the previous album. Now he’s back for more. We wish you a great listening pleasure with these selected works of improvisation, of live play. Spirit, soul and earth invite you to dive into.

Elsa Bergman + Óscar Santis – Errante

[pn117]

Elsa Bergman + Óscar Santis

“Errante”

“Elsa Bergman (double bass) and Óscar Santis (Likembe, mixer, soundboxes, effects, computer), deliver us a generous recording of their first encounter as a duo of improvisers. The album, called Errante, was conceived in its fullness in the magical landscapes of Amereida.

The result is translated in a mixture of exquisite and varietal languages, distinguished by the hypnotic seduction corresponding to the interpretation of Elsa Bergman, who in accordance with her worldview manages to articulate a more onomatopoeic and percussive line as compared to Óscar Santis, the owner of a structured and ferrous sonic vocabulary.

These conversations, generated in an autopoietic state, deliver us soundscapes cemented with Nordic emulsions and the saline corrosion accumulated for decades in the territory of Ciudad Abierta (Open City).

The atmosphere that Errante offers us is divided in seven electrifying cuts, with “Autopista” being the most extensive track (12:05), which ends in magnificent fashion this exchange of musical expectations y concerns that pass through the fields of minimalist electronica and the indelible legacy of free-jazz.”

“La tecno-fantasia «suggerisce un rapporto vivente con l’estetica della realtà», nota Roberto Guerra, che la trasferisce nella visionarietà dei suoi video e testi”
Vitaldo Conte (Pulsional Gender Art, Avanguardia 21, 2011)

Tra poesia sonora e musica elettronica, tra dada, futurismo e situazionismo… Da anni i Kraftwerk fans attendono un nuovo album, solo un paio ex novo in oltre 30 anni (Electric Café – 1986 e Tour de France-2004, oltre a Expo2000, ma straordinari mix e remix dei Kraftwerk stessi: al punto che live, tour non stop e negli ultimi anni in 3D sembrano incredibilmente album e canzoni elettroniche (e Video) ex novo. Futuristi e quindi anche transumanisti, autopotenzianti i brani dei Kraftwerk, (Ralf Hutter e Florian Schneider, il duo originario e fondatore, poi via diversi altri robot musicisti- è rimasto da tempo il solo Hutter), padri della musica elettronica, canzoni tecnhopop (nato con i Kraftwerk) letteralmente “immortali”, mind up loading songs non stop. Ecco quindi, da un fan poeta, spesso ispirato a tarda notte mentre scriviamo poesie o saggi, il nuovo virtuale album dei Kraftwerk. Operazione di arte estrema, mix di sconcertante semplicità, musica per cloni! Un giocattolo “elettronico” sia ben chiaro, ma forse davvero queste soundtrack kraftwerkiane della computer age sembrano una volta di più (ri)composte il giorno prima…

Daniel Robert Lahey – Not Sure This Goes With Your Outfit

[CACL0003]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“Not Sure This Goes With Your Outfit”

The Latest Daniel Robert Lahey Release

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.

Alejandro Albornoz – Fluctuaciones 2

[pn113]

Alejandro Albornoz

“Fluctuaciones 2”

In addition to the publication of the album “Fluctuaciones” (“Fluctuations”) in its physical CD version (pncd11), two online albums are included that can be accessed on the Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel website, “Fluctuaciones 2” (pn113) and “Fluctuaciones 3: Live electronics” (pn114).

In regards to these albums, the time span covered is around 12 years of production alongside the pieces for the CD, several of which were revised during 2016. Although the new ones were completed in 2015, they form part of a collection of works in course, so I understand them as related.

In the case of “Fluctuaciones 2“, this includes 14 additional acousmatic works, all pieces composed between 2004 and 2012 and distinct from those included in the physical CD. This collection is irregular, there are several works of interesting execution and others that are either studies of timbre and structure or are exercises acousmatic composition. I have decided to publish this collection for a number of reasons: it is a personal gesture to close a stage as a sound creator, it allows me to recognize the constancy and seriousness with which I have approached composition in the genre and makes available to students, artists, researchers and interested public parties a corpus of work that could be of interest for analysis, study, and discussion.
