A Dream Itself Is But A Shadow was written in response to Disquiet Junto Project 0379: Open Studios
Step 1: The purpose of this week’s project is to provide participants opportunities to get feedback on works-in-progress. Consider work you’re doing you’d appreciate responses to from fellow Junto participants.
Step 2: Either upload an existing recording (sketches and mid-process takes may prove optimal), or record something new and post it online for feedback. If there are some things in particular you’d like feedback on, mention what they are.
A Dream Itself Is But A Shadow is, of course, a quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. I started writing it in response to the haiku by Portuguese author Corine Timmer:
the falling tide
tugs at my dream –
I was not able to complete the piece in time for inclusion with naviarhaiku272. I have returned to it off and on and am at a place comfortable where I believe that it can be shared.
A Dream Itself Is But A Shadow was written for Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, Trombone, Vibraphone, Violin, Viola, Cello and String Bass.
The music of WHΛLT THISИEY is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths.
WHΛLT THISИEY selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same quantities that emerges from encounters between the past and the present, drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life again, so to produce the same effect of the original freshness and spontaneity, a mirror that transforms it absorbs and reflects.
WHΛLT THISИEY mixes impressionist piano atmospheres, spoken wordcore, drone, experimental, library, hypnotic escapism music. WHΛLT THISИEY aka Fernando Cerqueira is the founder member of Thisco record label and publisher of Antibothis anthologies.
Fernando Cerqueira was the founder member of the late 80’s SPH tape / record label.
“P8 phase 3” presents another side of the work of our regular contributor Doedelzak. This time he used an hybrid methodology of improvisation, generative music and post-production manipulations. The 3 phases indicated in the title refer to the three main stages of the creative process used here :
phase 1 : improvisation on MIDI piano
phase 2 : extension on multiple virtual instruments, using aleatory distributions
phase 3 : superpositions, accelerations/decelerations, volumes
The result is multi-layered composition which is in the same time easy to the ear (thanks to its smooth sounds and melodic components) and very complex and ever changing. It could be enjoyed as background music but is also fascinating for a more focused listening which will let you discover many details and subtleties of the piece.

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.
“Paraíso Sintético” (Synthetic Paradise), an album realized in the first semester of 2017 as the author’s thesis, is the product of a year of research and sonic experimentation seeking to characterize the sonic identity of urban spaces. Realized and produced in Medellín, Colombia, this album explores topics ranging from urbanism and the social appropriation of the environment to the relationship between art and society and it reflects on human activity as a condition and determinant of the qualities of the city.
Embarking from the hypothesis that the city has a malleable, artistic and aesthetic potential, “Paraíso Sintético” is an EP composed of three songs performed in the Parque de Berrío, one of the main parks of the city of Medellín. The composition of each song, whose material was recorded at a different time of the day (morning, noon, night), seeks to show how human activity affects the sound spectrum and it proposes an interpretation, from the musical point of view, of this phenomenon.

Much more minimalist than “Wandering in Dust” that we published in 2015, Carillon, the new album of Doedelzak is made of almost nothing. It will discretly merge with your surroundings and the hidden things of your daily life. Maybe you will not notice it at all, which is fine too.
Onde Poussière is the experimental / free improvisation duo of Doedelzak (analog synthesizer) and Kecap Tuyul (prepared guitar (2015-2016), no-input mixer (2017-…))

A warm cold amniotic and cathartic liquid, find yourself on the edge of a wood, feel the leaves play for us. Ambient, neo classical, are just two of the adjectives we could give for this music by the composer Fabio Keiner, a master in creating atmospheres carved in Carrara marble or in the water of a lake at the passage of a swan. Fabio is Austrian and visiting his bandcamp https://fabiokeiner.bandcamp.com, you will discover a fantastic world of a true sonorous and visionary magician that will take you very far. We are honored to be able to publish a record of a musician of such stature, able to capture the heart as few, but above all to make the mind fly for a high-level ambient.
Un caldo freddo liquido solido amniotico e catartico, ritrovarsi sul limitare di un bosco, sentire le foglie suonare per noi. Ambient, neo classica, sono solo due degli aggettivi che potremmo dare per questa musica del compositore Fabio Keiner, un maestro nel creare atmosfere scolpite nel marmo di Carrara o nell’acqua di un lago al passaggio di un cigno. Fabio è austriaco e visitando il suo bandcamp https://fabiokeiner.bandcamp.com , scoprirete un mondo fantastico di un vero mago sonoro e visionario che vi porterà lontanissimo. Siamo onorati di poter pubblicare un disco di un musicista di tale levatura, capace di catturare il cuore come pochi, ma soprattutto di far volare le mente per un ambient di altissimo livello.
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.
Hear things never seen.

‘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’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 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.
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)).
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.
