Art & Technique

“071617182018”

For its 39th release, Da ! Heard It Records gives birth to a new alchemy.

As an emblematic figure of the French alternative scene of the 70s and 80s, Bernard Filipetti has been heating up his analog synthesizers’ circuits within the band Camizole along with Dominique Grimaud, and with his solo project Art & Technique. Raw, industrial, and without concession, Bernard’s recordings of that time resonate among those of a new generation of mavericks, whom he discovers with enthusiasm at the heart of the Parisian musical network of Rue des Gardes. He then surrounds himself with Mathieu Habig, the energetic drummer of Guili Guili Goulag and Spoliature, to fire up his machines during the Merguez Electroniques festival in June 2017. This memorable concert is the origin of the present cassette, born from the spontaneous invitation of the Da ! Heard It label and the arrival of Ravi Shardja, (GOL Couloir Gang) into this new formula.
For three days, after strategically placing mics and ventilators in an overheated cave in Porte de la Villette, the formation of varying geometry cans nearly 12 hours of material in July 2018. From these largely improvised sessions arise unpublished sonorous structures, marked by the canicular atmosphere of the place.
A true celebration of the alloy of complementary personalities, the saturated cloths gradually ignite the speakers to reveal the sustained play of Mathieu Habig. Synthetic volutes briefly appear and melt into these long compact shores, as if shaped directly in the material. In two of the four tracks on the album, Ravi Shardja’s bass brings in a krautock flow to add to these stretched out compositions, extended and forged compulsively in the heat of this underground studio. Reminiscent of the various sonorous strata machined at the forefront of this percussive assembly, the sleeve that accompanies this production was conceived with precision by Pia Mélissa Laroche. Inside, the magnetic tapes that capture the vivid energy of these sessions give a fair idea of their concerts and invite to a collective frenzy.
Thirty years after its debut, Art & Technique reinvents itself with tribal rhythms, obstinate bass lines wrapped in a dense, psychedelic, and perpetually boiling electronic.

This is an ep that has been sent to one of my old email-addresses in 2012 but unfortunately, it got, like so many other submissions, lost between all the spam. I just discovered the submission at the end of last December. After the 20kbps sweet compilation came out, I once more searched through all the spam and finally found this gem. It’s like a message from a parallel universe where the clone of me managed to deal with the spam.

The Hathaway Family Plot

“A Flat Thing”

Hello. I stumbled across your blog and now want to throw my plug at you. I just released A Flat Thing, my ninth album as The Hathaway Family Plot. If you’ve never heard of me before (and you probably haven’t), my music could be described as avant-garde noise/pop from Buffalo, New York. I like the term “garage art.” It’s mostly piano and electronics and distorted kazoo. Some singing and some straight-up yelling. Trying my best to come up with something that sounds new and different and interesting.

All my albums are Creative Commons BY-NC-SA. I don’t imagine becoming wildly successful, so I just want to be heard by some sympathetic ears. I hope you like it.

Thanks for listening,
Kevin

Carlos Suero

“erasing memories”

“erasing memories” was an idea developed for music to live and die on stage. Taking the past concept of music that dies on stage, Carlos Suero composed this unique piece of one hour, with various segments within, for this purpuse only. But, after reconsidering the idea of losing these tracks for ever; and having talks with friends, he decided to release it in order to making it avalable for everyone that couldn´t make to that night.

The night was the concert played the 17/11/2018 and organised by RATORMOUTE in Madrid.
The day after he set up the instruments again like the night before and performed the same concert this time in the studio.

The music included here is without cuts or extras added, its is exatcly as it was the night before; live.

Recorded at HomeStudios (Madrid).
Mastered by CSH at HomeStudios (Madrid).

“The Cat Has Cometh!”

This album is about beat impressionism, when the beat does not make the rhythm, but the mood instead. Breakcore and IDM inspired mess of beats and breaks and plastic.

When I was a child I used to gather all the wooden, metal and plastic boxes to make my “drum set”. I played my drums with spoons and sang aloud: “The cat has cometh!”. My passion for rhythmic music never faded, so, after growing up I still gathered all wooden, metal and plastic samples to make my virtual drum set.

I like when the beat is not merely a metronome, even my favourite rock bands have drummer leaders – “Magma” with Christian Vander and “高円寺百景” with Tatsuya Yoshida. I like when the beat is flow, when it creates melody, when it gives tempo not only by beating the drum faster or slower but by creating the feeling of speed or chill. I do not intend to create a total abstract avant-garde mess, which ceases to sound musical, instead, I want to create the impressionist-like approach, when complex structures give rise to clear and almost tangible impressions.

This “beat impressionism” might sound a bit harsh to an untrained ear, because that is how massive plastic sounds like. Just like metal music is basically harsh rock, so my plastic music is harsh IDM.

Most of the tracks were created 15 years ago. Maybe they were ahead of time? Or maybe they sound like your childhood? Because they definitely sound like my childhood.

As usual, every track has its own artwork.

The cat has cometh!

KMPST

“KMPZ SESSIONS (Part 1)”

KMPST brings the best of the Moscow underground electroacoustic free improv tablet electronica and marks the beginning of a new exciting era on top-40.org with back-to-the-roots hidden gems, original hits, and more entertaining explorations of the unknown.

KMPZ SESSIONS are designed as an acoustic labyrinth without exits but with many escape routes through paradoxical gaps in the aural continuum. Primordial, almost shamanic rhythms meet futuristic mech-a-droids in the vortex of high-freq noises and digital glitches, Amnesia Scanner versus self-mutated Autechre audio algorithms, dark soundscapes, and Muslimgauze’esque faux ethnic vibes.

The opening track KMPZ 015, a rudimentary clicks’n’çutz dark breakbeat anthem, sends us off on a rather epic hour-long journey through an abstract experimentalist interacoustic universe. From suspenseful, uncanny deep dub pulsations on KMPZ 001 to a slowly unfolding, swampy bass micro-ambient soundscape KMPZ 004, with a slightly attenuated KMPZ 008’s distant motive and granular proto-rhythmic vibrations and entrancing melodies of KMPZ 012, KMPST presents a compelling yet highly abstract musical story.

Doedelzak

“P8 phase 3”

“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.

Ayato & Kecap Tuyul

“The shaman won’t come back”

“The shaman won’t come back” is a new file-exchange based collaborative album of Ayato & Kecap Tuyul, It was recorded and mixed in various places between 2015 and 2018. Ayato played guitar with live looping made with a Revox reel to reel tape player, and Kecap Tuyul later overdubbed these hypnotic tracks with various sounds, building dense and trippy soundscapes.
This work can be considered as the 3rd part of a trilogy started with “Waiting for the shaman” , published 6 years ago. For the moment, the 2nd part of this trilogy exists only in the head of the listener.

[pn138]

Chris Silver T + Mauro Sambo

“…che il sapore dell’aria possa appoggiarsi alle labbra”

“In un arco temporale molto breve” (a Chris & Mauro).

Quando Il corpo si separa dalla mente e nuovi spazi si formano

Tu respira…

lascia passare l’aria e inoltrarsi l’ombra…

…aria

la mente si domanda cos’è questa massa di carne, ossa e tendini che deve far muovere, spostare…
Una massa in perenne fermento, sempre tesa.

Perché?

Il corpo dal canto suo si sente privato di senso, quasi un intruso, un peso per quel mondo
metafisico verso cui la mente tende.

E’ di troppo?

Piccole scosse muovono le dita, che lasciate a loro stesse si erano addormentate,
forse un tentativo della mente di abbandonarle…

l’aria si appoggia alle labbra e il naso freme per quel sentore, forse più un ricordo,
di incenso, tenue ma insistente.

Un lungo respiro sposta i polmoni e ossigena…

Tu respira…

ora si che…

“…cos’era quel suono? Hanno bussato?…No, non dovrebbe essere già qui…”

La gola stretta in una morsa, una sensazione di brivido che corre lungo lo stomaco e lo sterno.

L’esterno che risveglia l’interno.

Non è possibile lasciarlo indietro quel corpo… dietro la porta qualcuno lo aspetta…

ritorna a terra, con i piedi saldi, i sensi allerta, il cuore fremente.

Sk’p

“Specks Of Dust On The Edge Of Immensity”

It’s the end of the year and as always we want to present something special to you.

SK’P is back with his detailed and clean sound compositions which already fascinate us, make us dream and forget the time. Better still, he brought a mutual friend with him this time. We knew the whole time that they fit together perfectly, but now we can experience how the completion of this connection finally takes place. We’re obviously talking about the ever more productive GESO, who in between his always fantastic visual appearances thought of something special for us and lets us immerse ourselves in some completely symmetrical 360º videos, interspersed with complicated details that we want to and can explore again and again – with a completely subjective perception and always different.

You know Sk’p and his precise micro cuts, squeaky clean beat works and joyful synth works. Put these two in a mixer and you have another fine release with infinite replay value that invites you to think about our prejudices about paradise, distant futures and multiple ways that we wish they hadn’t taken.

Here you can find the portfolio with all the 360 VR videos:

Ayato & Naoki Ishida have been working together via file exchange since the early 2010s. 3 years after their album “Red_control rec​.​played” , they offer us a split album recorded between 2015 and 2016 : Tapes Outtakes. Here, as the title suggests, the 2 artists have both worked with magnetic tapes. Ayato has used an old Revox reel-to-reel tape player to create evolving loops of various instruments, while Naoki Ishida has used other (undisclosed) methods and material. Two ways to use the tape as an instrument and tool for experimental composition.

taura yorihisa

“nightfall “

国内外のレーベルから精力的に作品をリリースしているtaura yorihisaによるノイズ・アンビエント作品。アイザック・アシモフの短編作品に着想を得た本作は、極端にエディットされたギターに、環境音とビットクラッシュノイズが絡まり、今までの作品よりもラフでざらついた音像となっている。アンビエント、シューゲイズ、ドローン、ノイズミュージック……来るべき夜へ、ジャンルを越境していく音の旅路。

美しい日常の風景をモノクロに塗ってしまうかの様な空気の音。
今作は込み上げる内省を見ざるを得ない事を世界に写しこむ様な音で、taura氏の音楽はそういう色彩が元より強かったのだが今作はもっと抑えた嗚咽の様な形で発現してる様に感じます。
リスナー体験としては泣き腫らした後の様な穏やかさを感じられる事でしょう。
尚今作は私はイヤフォンよりもスピーカーで聴かれる事を推奨します。
takasi(gravel’s end)

硬質とも言へる音響の芸からは、星が見え始める「あの夕刻」を思ひ出させる。
空の色が滲み、主観的な時間がじつくりと進んでいくあの時空。だが、其れにも終わりは訪れるのである。また次に訪れる朝まで歩かねばならぬのだ。
さふ、夕刻への感傷だけではない。夜明けへの希望も彼の音楽は観させてくれるのである。
Tia Rungray(音楽家)

文字の通りに音の層に包まれる体験.

いかなる場面においてもyorihisa tauraの音楽は程よい緊張とリラックスを生み出してくれます.
ヘッドフォンでも,スピーカーでも.
音に意識を向けながらでも,何か作業しながらでも.

そんな期待のさらに上をゆくニューリリースです.
