Adrià Bofarull – speculative rites

[PT062]

Adrià Bofarull

“speculative rites”

Some of the titles of this work refer to different stages of the evolution of human consciousness as well as general concepts of the new stream of thought known as speculative realism. In some cases these ideas have defined the structure and character of the compositions.
Thus, Object Permanence explores the sound field produced by a small group of children playing in a closed space with different materials (wood, metal, cork …) with a particularity: of the collected original samples, all sound evidence of the presence of the children (voices, etc.) has been eliminated by selection of fragments and cuts of frequency; the resulting material has been sampled and touched with the intention that the objects appear in the piece to float by themselves. The title refers to the phenomenon according to which children of early age do not have a clear conscience of the independence of the object with respect to themselves. That is to say if they are not seeing or touching the object they do not conceive its existence. This is the one shown here released from any human trace.
Reflex Schema Stage works like a stable mechanism in which sudden appearances produce variations in the original scheme, always changing but of static appearance.
Semiotics points to small tonal nuances as the last referential link of a discourse that needs new dialectics in its relationship with the nonhuman.
OOO is the acronym of object orients ontology, a school that flees from the anthropocentric view of post-Kantian philosophy and claims a more balanced view of man with respect to his immediate environment.
Primary Circular Reaction and Cognitive Skills also refer to aspects of the awakening of consciousness to its environment and to its resources and abilities to relate to it.
In no case does this work pretend to be an exhaustive study of the questions that it poses; these are simply the backdrop that has suggested and motivated some of the compositions that it contains.

Rephazer – Holiday Mixtape

[390]

Rephazer

“Holiday Mixtape”

There’s no doubting that todays music technology is powerful and versatile and Rephazer shows us how powerful with his EP he called the ‘Holiday Mixtape’

And it’s just that, a mixtape (or sketches) created while on holiday at the various locations in the track names (I’m guessing). Created entirely on one single piece of Swedish Engineered hardware (from the guys that made the Sidstation way back when) called the OP-1 (for those listeners interested).

Rephazer creates some fantastic moody, detailed and atmospheric Boards of Canada inspired tracks. Perhaps from the same sound palette for each track, but all with a chilled out vibe. Summer is drawing to a close but kick back and relax beside the pool listening to Rephazer!

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.

My Own Cubic Stone – Glass Birds

[mn006]

My Own Cubic Stone

“Glass Birds”

“My Own Cubic Stone” defines its music as “Dark Ambient”. To many that means that his music could appear in a horror film, but for this artist the meaning of “dark” goes much further: it is a state of mind. A level of consciousness suitable for both introspection and to explore emotions and feelings that we normally avoid. Like traveling somewhere under glass clouds.

Catalog Number: mn006
Artist: My Own Cubic Stone.
Title: Glass Birds

Cousin Silas – Cold Star

[CAAM0011]

Cousin Silas

“Cold Star”

Many Cousin Silas works are built on the concepts found in science fiction and science. It is one of the most fertile grounds for exploration in an artistic context that is available.

Cold Star is a long-form recording that creates the ambiance of a long journey to another planet. This journey concludes with the view of a brown dwarf star, known as a “cold star”. Cold stars have long been the subject of science fiction, having been referenced in many novels and TV series. In science cold stars are commonly known as brown dwarfs, (or “failed stars”) which are unable to create their own energy.

Pablo Ribot – Gamma morph

[PT061]

Pablo Ribot

“Gamma morph”

Gamma morph
Consists in 7 tracks that fuses elements of electronic music including industrial, noise, clicks, cuts and glitches which are manipulated by different overlapping frequencies that appear and disappear creating at times rhythmic cells, or working as a dialogue of noises into the musical narrative.
Acoustical elements, malfunctioning beats get integrated into abstract and complex mechanical forms that are combined with intervals of cosmic and etheric textures, giving birth to those signals that will lead us to transit into that space.

Composed and performed by Pablo Ribot

Go Ask Alice – Perfection is terrible

[040]

Go Ask Alice

“Perfection is terrible”

This self-produced EP is the first work by Go Ask Alice: eight instrumental tracks, composed between 2012 and 2013, recorded and mixed by Matteo Spinazzé, in collaboration with Curzio Ferri playing drums and Andrea Oggiano with his acoustic guitar.
Perfection is terrible is the first verse of Sylvia Plath’s poem “The Munich Mannequins”.
“Perfection” here is completeness, closure, inability to evolve and reborn, perfection is death.
Perfection is indeed terrible, can’t have a child, just as Plath’s Munich Mannequins, cold marble statues, beautiful and perfect, frozen with us in a never ending present, the immense futureless present of the “capitalist realism”: the end of history.

Basic Elements – Drum And Bones

[CAEL0005]

Basic Elements

“Drum And Bones”

Basic Elements is back on CerebralAudio with Drum and Bones. The first drum and bass style electronica release on CerebralAudio. It seems that Basic Elements is set on making as many firsts on CererbralAudio as he can, and we approve!

With this release he set out to produce an old school DnB release, harking back to the roots of Jungle music and the influences of producers like LTJ Bukem, Nightmares On Wax and The Prodigy. Breakbeats and Amen break inspired rhythms are the core of this release.

But it is much more. It is a listening experience: you will listen to from start to finish, and add to your playlist. There is not a weak track on this release. Bit this is the way Pim van Dorst works as Basic Elements, if he isn’t satisfied that his music can be listened to from start to finish, he won’t release it. He is a perfectionist, and it shows in his music.

This is a recommended headphone listening release for all lover of DnB and Jungle music styles!

Mr. & Oso – Se dice Misterioso [pn123]

[pn123]

Mr. & Oso

“Se dice Misterioso [pn123]”

“As every Tuesday night falls in the city of Viña del Mar; Moraga, Arellano and Castro meet to play and record what happens. Based on a spirit of camaraderie, they turn on their synthesizers, drum machines, effects and computers and once again begin their exercises in creating amusing and amiable improvisations. From these extensive sessions, recorded according to the dogma of the trio -directly to a stereo track-, they extract the passages that constitute each one of the six tracks that compose ‘Se dice Misterioso‘ (Its called mysterious).

Published by the indispensable Pueblo Nuevo, this is the third work of Mr. & Oso, an ensemble in electronic format that with its creative exercises transports us to the most inspiring grounds of Intelligent techno and the Ambient of the 90s, where electronica was – and here still is – a space of personal discovery, and at the same time a point of spiritual communion.

Either accompanying the beginning or end of the day; as much in solitude as among friends; wandering along the coast or without getting up from our chair, Se dice misterioso may be enjoyed equally, becoming an excellent soundtrack for a journey in which physical displacement is not necessary, since it is concentrated enough on the present to take us as far as we please.

With smiles of complicity and satisfaction, Mr. & Osos end the session tonight. It will not be until next week when they meet again and return to their instruments to exchange musings in a musical key.”

“Castaway”

This is what surrounds you and what you cannot escape from. Broken feelings and abandoned inner worlds. Dead hopes and forgotten desires. This is what you get when you are frank and open to the world. Despair, aggression and numbness mixed together here in three tracks.

Roedor – Simbiosis

[MNE 009]

Roedor

“Simbiosis”

Monofónicos presenta el regreso de Roedor con su nuevo álbum Simbiosis.

Tras su segundo trabajo “Onirismo” publicado en 2013, no había vuelto a salir de la madriguera el Roedor. Al parecer había estado combinando nuevos sonidos todo este tiempo, hoy condensados en un álbum que aunque mantiene ciertas reminiscencias a objetos encontrados y la grabación de campo, viaja en sintes y ritmos que abren nuevos panoramas en su sonido.

“Simbiosis es música hecha con todo lo que aparezca. Es encuentro, diálogo, intercambio, mezcla. De sonidos, de sueños, de vidas, de objetos; de máquinas, paisajes, noches, silencios, recuerdos, sonrisas; datos, formas, colores, amor.”

Luka Prinčič – Albatross EP

Luka Prinčič

“Albatross EP “

At the heart of it all lies a choreography of sounds – noises and tones and everything in-between. Of course there’s always the body. And its movement. Mental images flashing somewhere in the brain, a foot tapping, that feeling in the stomach and somewhere down the lungs when you’re hit with an emotional resonance. The whole brain is lighting up. And we never know it. Perhaps you are standing up already and you move to the beat. Lightly. The hips or knees jerking. Or you are a two-year old that is all open before your brain connections are pruned already and you start restricting your immediate impulses. Or you are just curled on the bed with headphones on with a torrent within.

I cannot hide the desire that this music would perhaps be heard beyond from what it was made for at first. That it should be thought without the missing component which it was made to harmonize with, to be a support to. It’s a standalone. Or so I wish. It irrevocably connects to its past, to its sources. Many threads have been drawn from many spindles to knit it. Some were planned, some not. Some were conscious, some not. And then there’s also an atmosphere. A socio-sonic environment. It’s where the listener comes in with all her baggage. And joining happens – through very particular nodes: those who moved to it, those who pressed buttons so it became a recording, those who thought about it and searched for moves, those who organized the sounds, bodies, reflections, feed-backs, and experiences. And then, reaching the ears and auditory cortex the music reorganizes itself again. Thus, it has an irrevocable future, and more resonance.

Albatrosses: it’s how they looked like, how they moved. It’s how they were called, how they named themselves and carried that name proudly.

Jan Strach – Bjurwa Fantomatyczna

[UPL 073]

Jan Strach

“Bjurwa Fantomatyczna”

“Absolutely uncategorizable combination of rock, casio-electronics, lo-fi, majestic pop, punk, post-punk, krautrock, full of colliding samples, guitars, keyboards, whiny effects, but also beautiful melodies and non-dumb lyrics. For lack of a better term called by me “psychedelic chaos-pop”. A work of constantly sleep-deprived madman, made with love and as carefully as the modest setup allowed, so as to depict, as closely as possible, the inside of his tired head.”
