Phil Tea – Sentimental Value

[IYE 27]

Phil Tea

“Sentimental Value”

Sentimental Value is a record of which we fell in love from the beginning, with its particular feeling, its tranquility and its power, its making you travel gently. Everything is explained below by its author

I first started playing music back in 2014 when i was 16 as a drummer in a local Melodic Death Metal band. After going over 2 years with my band, i’ve decided to quit and start doing more projects on my own. I started a Grindcore band and joined several other bands/projects from Sherbrooke, going from Skate Punk to Rap, Black Metal and Screamo. After a year or so, I’ve decided to take a break from the local underground scene to start focusing more on my solo projects.

I first started experiencing with several softwares and analog equipement, but quickly went full on with DAWs, as i felt that i wanted to make music with the bare minimum equipement, due to, mostly, lack of space and money. I now work with FL Studio, Cubase 5 and Protools 12. The only hardware that i use is a 25 keys AKAI MIDI keyboard, a Behringer Xenyx 1002fx mixing board and a Novation Launchpad.

Sentimental Value as been composed between July 2017 and Febuary 2018. The title kinda speaks for itself, because every song as been written in connection with a very specific moment in my life. I really wanted to recreate and embody the mood and the atmosphere of these moments and shape it into music. I think is the closest way anybody could ever re-experience them. Sit back, put on your best pair of headphone and let yourself float into this mellow little journey.

Metalogue – Gradient Descent

Metalogue

“Gradient Descent”

“Gradient Descent” is the fourth Metalogue EP. Exploring variations on a single melodic theme, the record travels from dark cavernous ambience to precise digital structures, crossing through sweeping synthetic textures and industrial claustrophobia along the way.

Gradient Descent was written and performed for a Chaos Theory event headlined by Jarboe and Farther Murphy, at St Pancras Old Church, London on 23rd October 2017. The piece features custom made electro-acoustic instruments, field recordings and live electronics. The release on Abstrakt Reflections is a studio arrangement of the original material, integrating additional sound design and layers of live sound from the church performance.

Sinage – Sinwave

[EEM032]

Sinage

“Sinwave”

Getting lost and trying to find serenity. Unable to stay calm even for a moment and the unquenched thirst to create new problems. An ear-splitting explosion and a sinful wave of aggression. The solitude and the awakening of the Beast.

“Sinwave”, the second album of Sinage, a neurotic and chaotic trip to the depths of the emotion and feeling. It’s a refined and melodic album filled with dance beats packed inside a unique sound aesthetic that clashes chiptune synths and rave sounds.

Seek Six Sick – Anti-Macho Rockstar (Sunmantra Remix)

[yesno088]

Seek Six Sick

“Anti-Macho Rockstar (Sunmantra Remix)”

Single ini adalah versi edit/remix dari Sunmantra, trio leftfield elektronik asal ibukota. Jojo, Fritz dan Barhel mengambil lagu Seek Six Sick berjudul Antimacho Rockstar secara liar dari YouTube lalu menggubahnya menjadi perkakas lantai dansa bertemakan techno eksperimental/disko-post punk-new beat/ebm atau gaya musik-musik dansa lainnya yang menyampaikan kerasnya kehidupan. Acara dengan genre musik ini sedang berkembang secara signifikan dalam kurun dua tahun ini di seputaran Jakarta-Jogja-Bandung-Bali.

Dibandingkan dengan versi asalnya, remix Sunmantra ini memiliki gaya disko/techno minimal/elektro minor yang tingkat noise-nya lebih rendah dengan tata aransemen yang lebih linear. Repetisi dari potongan lagu asli, unsur elektronik ber-resonansi rendah dan lolongan frasa “Antimacho Rockstar”pun terdengar seiring naiknya tingkat efek delay/echo yang berharmoni dengan ‘acid line’ yang dihasilkannya mampu menghipnotis pendengar dalam lorong ber-strobo diselingi kedap-kedip lampu merah. Ini adalah musik kelab malam bagi orang-orang apatis dan depresi. Musik dansa untuk kaum anti sosial. Inspirasi atas bangkitnya kembali versi lain dari musik dansa elektronik indie/punk electro rock yang bukan metal.

Skena musik eksperimental terus mencari suara-suara dan teknik yang baru serta kemampuan pendengaran baru bagi pendengarnya. Suara lama diolah menjadi gelombang baru. Suasana aneh yang lambat laun secara intens menjadi sesuatu yang indah. Remix ini bukan untuk penggemar deep house, deep techno, deep trance, juga bukan musik kelab malam dengan drum kick macho tebal atau disko gitar wah-wah dengan ketipang-ketipung cerianya. Namun juga bukan hal yang terlalu aneh karena masih mempunyai kick, snare dan suara lain yang ritmis dan konstan yang bisa diikuti telinga dan otak dengan sederhana. Karya ini juga diproduksi/mixing dengan rapi sehingga terdengar jelas dan nyaman. Dansa atau tidak dansa, Anda patut mencoba menelusuri gelombang baru ini. —Aditya Permana (Dekadenz)

Split Phase – Compendium

[nvr050]

Split Phase

“Compendium”

Time for a special and long overdue release here at noisyvagabond! For our 50th release we present a gigantic collection of tracks (43 to be exact for a total of 6 hours of music!) from Split Phase. Split Phase was a live electronic duo hailing from Upstate NY consisting of myself (c. ‘transient’ martin) and Mike McInotsh active for a period roughly through 2010-2014. For our live shows, we were joined by Nate Vanslyke on lights and visuals. I provided the musical backing via loopers and a plethora of synths and effect processors while Mike provided the rhythms via an acoustic and electronic drum kit. Split Phase was an attempt to make music in real time which generally was made with sequencers or computers and bring those types of sounds into an improvised live process. As such, the music lost some of it’s precision but gained much in the way of humanized passionate expression. Presented here is a small selection of the countless hours of recordings we amassed practicing and creating on a near daily basis. You will find an eclectic mix of genres ranging from jazz, funk, drum and bass, dub, techno, downtempo, and more as we were never interested in pigeonholing ourselves into any particular sound. I hope you can find something in this compendium that moves you. One day the fates will realigned and new Split Phase music will be churned out. Until then, ENJOY!

Acknowledgements: Thanks to Carmen Chiles for letting us include our remix of her track ‘Love is’ and Sarah Winton for providing vocals for ‘Compromise’.

The tracks 1 & 2 &3 are based on Simenon « La Porte » from 1962, not a crime novel from the master who created Maigret.
The tracks 4 and 5 are based on Silverberg’s « Man in the Maze » from 1969, SF at its best.
The following songs are chants reflecting the variations.
I thank the label for accepting me in the never ending list of great releases.
This album is dedicated to you, for your enthusiasm on new sounds and curiosity.

Listening Satellites

“Everything is a Glitch “

Listening Satellites appears as Guest artist this time with a small four track EP called ‘Everything is a Glitch’. Lots of oldskool sounds and beats and melodies, with modern inspirations.

The name of the music stays the same over the years but the feel and construction evolves and this EP is a good example of todays vibe reflected in retro sounds. Mellow, Air-esque basslines, Sven Vath inspired beats, ambient pads. Dreamy.

MRTN-CSTR – ((–SEKU -_- EKU–))

[pn129]

MRTN-CSTR

“((–SEKU -_- EKU–))”

“For some years now, the Córdoban producer Martín Castro, aka MRTN-CSTR, has been surprising us with his creations, ever since releasing his debut album “Kr0m” through Pueblo Nuevo in 2014. This time he presents “((- -SEKU -_- EKU- -))“, an album comprising 7 tracks with an aesthetic he has developed through “patches”, which he designs himself for the software “Reaktor” from “Native Instrument.” These allows him to create an idiosyncratic style, with industrial sounds, granular trips, and glitches, as he develops a penetrating IDM with intense and sometimes devastating environments that make us think for a few minutes that we are in an empty and abandoned city, where only robots live and humans are extinct.

With a sound marked by broken and changing percussion, approaching that of new-acid, “((- -SEKU -_- EKU- -))“, produced by one of the most talented current musicians in Argentine electronics, is a highly recommended album.”

Tha Baaz – Reb0ound

[IYE26]

Tha Baaz

“Reb0ound”

ThaBaaz was born in 1974, classical studies of percussion instruments and acoustic drums, disparate musical interests: from dodecaphonic serialism to minimal electronic and to the IDM, just to expose only a few. His latest project, the most articulated, is entitled -reb0und- , it’s a concept album, year of creation 2008, 59 minutes of frequencies collected in 2 Suites respectively of 4 and 3 movements, 13 tracks; “an ascent in the disturbed darkness from fragments of noise “.

The work evokes a “system” at its last stage in fast introversion, the disruption is massive, directed to the chaotic darkness, to the cold disorder towards the “non-human noise”.

The solar and luminous scenarios of the 2 movements of the first Suite curve and slide rapidly into the deep “interior”; the “musical form” that we had known so far is running out; we are at the end of “music” (in the broad sense of the term) heading for an authentic solitude of bright dazzles in nocturnal and deserted isolated, non-systemic, atypical highways.

The second Suite invades the soul: the existential fear is director, places the audience constantly on the edge of a chasm, dissolves the last “fragments” of the “conventional” themes at the beginning and separates them, dissolves them in Larsen of frequencies strongly destabilizing.
The Metaphysics is the central theme of Suite II, we try to “portray” the inaudible sound spectrum, we try to recreate the “end” of every tangible empiricism; to this complex task we use sound generators, krell patches, collages (samples) of contemporary (musical genre) and what transcends the traditional and academic: structure, melody, harmony and metric they are almost totally “informal”.

ThaBaaz in -reb0und- inserts and “deforms” short phrases and solos (woodwind, violin, piano) taken from works by important exponents of contemporary music and avant-gard of the ‘900 (Pierre Boulez, Edgard Varése, Igor Stravinsky) with these ” citations “stands out, beyond the importance of innovation of such masterpieces, the multifaceted contribution to music in all its expressions; importing them in “foreign” contexts and distant from their origin (virtual modules, oscillators and automatisms of envelopes) are colored by oppressed and gloomy tones that we could approximate to those of the dark ambient genre but not only, can be identified (in the whole album) serialism (musical current) that translates into these generic guidelines: avoiding repetition and symmetry at all structural levels by working with a limited number of compositional elements for each musical cell (in the piece). This in order to synthesize and label, describe in a few lines the supporting columns of -reb0und-.

We need the “tradition” of the avant-gard itself to search for another.

The work does not present rhythmic and percussive lines, only in 2 pieces we recognize some measures in sinusoidal pulsations, this almost total “rhythmic absence” has “freed” the time from the usual role and task of metric and timbral constant, repetitive, “symmetrical” quantization “.

Using an exquisitely didactic vocabulary: the crown, the breath; the almost absolute absence of timbral pulsation reiterates itself emphasizing, emphasizing the incessant sound disruption that takes place in the succession of the two Suites before the listener.

Last but not least, the final mastering part was followed with “meticulous” attention by Kill KRT (friend of the author of -reb0und-) who tried to “accelerate” some “dissonant” color both on the timbral dynamics and on waveforms.

From the “warmth” of the wave (sawtooth) to the “emptiness” of the white noise; to you -reb0und-

Have a good listen.

Art Electronix – Inside The Box

[SCM-1801]

Art Electronix

“Inside The Box”

Art Electronix comes back releasing with our netlabel offering you a straight remix EP of one of their tracks. Just like the style of the genre, this release is the stirring in various forms of the primal matter of the first track, and stil it renders a powerful shot of all the Artist’s feature.
But let Egene and Katerina themselves tell about the concept of “Inside The Box EP:
«At the end of this summer our colleague from Poland (who works under the pseudonym Ixirell) wrote to us to send him samples from the title track.
After that, we invited another DJ and musician from Ukraine (Breaksage) to write down his version as well.
The cover was developed by the VJ Lena Dzhurina.
The concept of this work is primarily in the minimalism and psychological mental hooks, which often have to be worked out by creative people working with a limited set of tools. Thus, the idea of this collection is an example of how a musician using a small set of instruments, depending on personal perceptions, skills and psychological qualities, is able to come up, develop and transform a certain musical idea, inviting an outside observer to immerse himself in the inner world of the creator and his approach.
And it is this minimal approach that suggested the title of the track, since the music was made using only two box devices (a bass synth and a drum machine).
We recently learned about the experiment of Ludwig Wittgenstein, who showed that people are not able to understand each other to the end. This experiment was called “The Beetle in a Box” and we were interested in the concept that there are many interpretations of how the creative idea should develop and only when compared with already known paradigms a person can make some sort of conclusion, such as: it’s original, and it is primitive, or it pleases, and it saddens, but these conclusions can still be wrong or misunderstood. Therefore, we decided to tie together the idea of imperfection of human relations, the frequent inability to correctly understand one’s inner world and the chance to minimalism, as a way to return to the source. To that state without piling up with all sorts of concepts, where you can try to realize what kind of “Beetle or bug” is inside your box, and also whether you can be considered a beetle what lies in your neighbor’s box».

Warrego Valles – Botox

Warrego Valles

“Botox “

Stylistically, the music on Botox – a debut full length for Warrego Valles – seems to draw influences from a deep underground electronic dance music, but it is based on its contemporary deconstruction, which results in a dark minimalist abstract post-genre electro and glitchy sonic landscapes. The album’s thematic undercurrents tell a story about the present times: ephemerality of all action and destruction of the planet due to climate change and slavery. A grim vision of a world ruled by psychopaths driven by the will to control, greed and domination.

“How else can the drive for immortality be manifest than as an unstoppable exploitation, an endless extraction of resources, a seemingly limitless growth on a finite planet? In a dystopian post-apocalyptic vision called forth into the present in these abstract sounds with words buried in sombre electronic beats and glitches, there’s no sign of mankind after we’ve lost the red sun, our land and sky. We are loosing and destroying our environment. We are fostering more slavery than ever by refusing immigrants, stuffing them in camps and treating them like animals. In these relationships, humanity is lost while feelings of abandonment, defeat and solitude grow within the personal realm.
Underpinning these tracks is a grim vision of the world ruled by psychopaths, driven by a will to overpower and dominate. Only through submission of one’s own body (and mind) will it be possible to find »success«. The greed, the insensitivity, the lust for profit and power, the ability to kneel and to kill.” — extract from liner notes

Baltazar – After Kansai

[pn128]

Baltazar

” After Kansai”

“When listening to a sound work, the first thing that presents itself is the sound as a mass; however, in this work of Baltazár, it is the space that is defined around these masses which constitutes an equal or greater presence. I do not mean the silence, but the wake that each sound wave leaves when it is diluted in the process that produces a particular effect or modulation. The sum of these sonic wakes composes a new plane that is separated from the melodies and blocks of noise that make up this work. From “reading between the lines” one passes to “hearing between layers”. It is a constant game of associating and linking what is happening between these, entering the rhythm from the multiple directions through which reality appears to us on a daily basis.

As for sound, it oscillates between acoustic melodic parts and granules of noise that collapse in a cloud of digital processing; in the range of phrases composed of saturated coupling and the reverberation of pure tones.

If we had to make a parallel with painting, we could say that the figure and the background are clearly defined in each piece of “After Kansai” and both alternate in order to approach and move away from the plane in which we inhabit as listeners. The first tending to have few elements with clearly defined lines and the second like a great density of volumes that move in independent directions and sensations that come together and disentangle themselves.

Silence exists in the form as well as the emptiness in the background, but never between them. The sound leaves traces and these traces are those that are structured as the fundamental component of this work.”
