Kamizdat – Access Frame: Collectivity

[KAM031]

Kamizdat

“Access Frame: Collectivity “

A 2018 Netlabel Day release – a compilation of Slovenian artists, with many original works that span a wide spectrum of electronic music genres: from noise and sonic art, via bass, breaks, all the way to acid techno. The concept of the compilation is to bring attention to the conflict between necessity of free culture and enclosure of culture by copyright law. The conflict which is temporarily solved by Creative Commons licences.

An act of publishing music under the conditions of a free culture licence is a political act. In times of continuous global expansion of individualism which is often tightly connected to capitalist exploitation, it communicates a clear message: a desire to build a collectivity. For an artist acting on her own, or a small niche label, it is a significant move towards creation of equitable access to works of art. This act is an actual and concrete contribution to a pool of culture shared by all, an entering of a work and its creator into a collective consciousness. It is not a supression of individual desires and rights – as would false dichotomy of collectivism vs individualism perhaps imply. Instead it is an opening of creative process towards the global community and the public. It is an abandonment of a phantasm of fame and fortune based on maximisation of profits, exploitation of copyright, and intellectual property. Publishing one’s work as free culture is an action of an individual desiring to communicate her art with a collective humanity. It is an intentional gift to any and every potential individual who thusly belongs to a global collective of humanity and is empowered to follow her individual creative paths: listening, learning, composing, reworking, remixing, and sharing.

Access Frame is a series of compilations of adventurous music published by Kamizdat under a Creative Commons licence on 14. July – International Netlabel Day. It tries to establish a practice of thinking critically about access to, and distribution of, art. It poses a question: what is the frame through which we are allowed, and able, to access culture? How is it created, by whom, and can such frame of access be modified and transgressed?

Secret Archives of the Vatican

“Reformation”

This was our first CD album, released in 1998. We have mixed feelings about it now…it was early days and we didn’t quite know what we were doing or even what we were trying to do.
If we were writing or recording these tunes now, we’d probably do everything differently. However – this is our history!
We don’t have a good file of the original artwork, so this is a new cover. There’s a small image of the original front cover included in the download.

Wolf Wrams – Entropy

[EEM037]

Wolf Wrams

“Entropy”

Wolf Wrams constantly explores human psyche, the emotion that arises from it and influences it making further steps towards heights and after that falling down into the abyss. Birth, life and death, and then another birth are the results of it. That is expected from Entropy, perhaps all Wolf’s songs are entropic.

Zzy – Artificial Thoughts

[AR_081]

Zzy

“Artificial Thoughts”

“Artificial Thoughts” is the first Zzy‘s album. The story of this album is about two different realities: the humanity and the machine revolution. In other words, this work criticizes “the modern society” and their addictions. Do humans control the machine or does the machine control humans?

The technological revolution an its progress seems to us unbreakable and doesn’t show signs of ending.

Will we all be dominated by the machine? Is this our end?

“Artificial Thoughts” is struggling with those questions that have no concrete answer. However, the future looks dangerous and THE HUMANITY has to make decisions to survive in this game, against the endless evolution of the machine.

artists:

Audio Obscura (UK) audioobscura.bandcamp.com

Audio Obscura performs Lap-top based electronics for the ears, haunting the wide spectrum’s of electro-acoustic music with a firm footing in the ambient realm. The sound also strays towards the experimental; musique concrète, idm with post-classical minimal leanings occasionally push through.

Ikjoyce (UK) ikjoyce.bandcamp.com

ikjoyce makes electronic ambient and drone music using modular synthesis to explore themes of nature, space, isolation, man/machine interaction, and the borders of the sleep/wake cycle.

Sevenism (UK) sevenism.bandcamp.com

“I’m a self taught musician and sound mangler blurring the boundaries between analog and digital, acoustic and electronic, generative and human. I work in the present moment letting the music flow wherever it wants. My aim is to make music that is strange and experimental yet resonates on a deeper level.”

Subespai (AUS) subespai.bandcamp.com

Subespai is the solo project of Mauri Edo, a Sydney musician born in Barcelona. Walking the line between ambient, noise and drone music, Subespai paints experimental soundscapes by mixing acoustic and electronic audio sources with effect pedals, field recordings and other gadgets.

Noisefever – Love EP

[407]

Noisefever

“Love EP”

Noisefever is known for his cheerful, dance verging on 70s disco beats from his previous releases and Love EP is no different.

Classic beats mix with hammering basslines (and a spattering of chip sound effects) and cheerful melodies in this perfect four tracker to compliment the summer. Time to knock back those glasses of Pimms and enjoy the beats in the summer sun!

Officina Errante – Recorder! Ricorda​.​.​.

Officina Errante

“Recorder! Ricorda​.​.​.”

“Recorder! Ricorda…” is the first release in Linear Obsessional’s cassette series, professionally produced cassettes in uniform designs by David (smallhaus) Little. The artists have worked to produce music specifically for this format.

Officina Errante’s piece is an audacious journey through a succession of sonic moods, all sounds recorded on a portable Zoom recorder- the results then manipulated, crunched and highlighted later- time compresses and expands infinitely….tinkles from a borrowed piano add melancholic interludes.. It’s almost like a succession of audio postcards or snapshots, each “movement” capturing moments of stasis or energy, urban clamour or rural tranquility the whole work flowing seamlessly with it’s own logic.
Officina Errante reworked his piece especially for the cassette format and Linear Obsessional is delighted to present this piece of 21st century musique concrete/sonic travelogue.
credits
released June 22, 2018

All sounds, fields and instruments in this work have been sampled from recordings taken by me with the Zoom H5. I could take these recordings also thanks to Niina, Luke, Laura, and Michiko-san who let me play her piano all the time I wanted while I stayed at hers.
Photography by Niina Mahosenaho.

Written and produced by Officina Errante in Tokyo, Tonami and London.
