recording, mastering, photography and design by EMERGE

Mental Escape Pod
alias: Dabit Vocem Austria; Oni_pelted_by_beans; Das Rheintaler Nachtwerk; Felix Montfort;

Born in 1977 in the far west of Austria, life for a hungry littlev electronica nerd was hard. My electronic music life started at the day I saw Aphex Twin’s “Come to Daddy” at MTV. In the next 2 years i collected what I got and also found some really relaxing works from him and other artists. With the purchase of Aphex’ “Selected Ambient Works 2” I jumped into soundscapes and Ambient sounds. In 1998 I started making own noises with a tracker and some free ware sounds. Then some personal problems kicked in 2002 and I did nothing until the winter of 2009/2010. In December 2010 Dabit Vocem Austria was born and 1 year later Mental Escape
Pod followed. And it never stopped until today.

ref/inter

“/inter”

/inter is an album based on a certain visuality of sound. It has various sounds in it (field recordings, instrument samples, pure frequencies, and glitch/feedback noise), however, the core of this album was an experiment – an analog connection of sound and image. By sending a sound signal to a screen in such a way as if it were visual information the screens started to show imagery and by testing four different approaches towards using sound and testing how they look in this particular connection /inter was formed.

Onde Poussi̬re РVague Seconde

Onde Poussière

“Vague Seconde”

Vague Seconde, the second album of Onde Poussière, documents the group’s evolution since their beginnings and their first album Silent Rain. Doedelzak now plays interconnected analog synthesiszers, and Kecap Tuyul has dropped the guitar and uses a “no-input mixer” with effects. Their improvisations are based on the creation of unstable situations in which some accidental sounds might happen at any time…

scmute – Sumic Semurnb

[mn007]

scmute

“Sumic Semurnb”

The structure of nature.

Nature expresses itself through its structure, it has no function or intention to communicate feelings or ideas. If nature speaks to us, she does so through her relationship with us, since we are part of her. The music presented by Marcos Bernabé (aka scmute) in “Sumic Semurnb” is like nature, its structure is algorithms, instructions for its generation that resonate us by its relation with our psychology of attention. The game with attention is the key, as a vehicle to enjoy the sounds, the dynamics and, ultimately, to provide us with a singular perceptual experience.

scmute gives us, in addition, an extra gift in track number two, because it gives space to the silence that we so much appreciate in this netlabel.

Palm Era – Gimo

“Gimo”

Palm Era – Gimo

Palm_Era (Claudio Cisterna) is a chilean producer from Santiago. A long-standing electronic music producer, he had been publishing under the netlabel Impar and the record label U-Cover from Belgium under the alias Flipper, a project that is closer to IDM. Later under the alias ‘Chiodata’, he immerses himself more into the experimental side of music and releases some of his works under the Irish record label Fort Evil Fruits and Cocodriller. He has also developed other projects such as ‘Jon Claudio’, a fusion between electronic music and Krautrock. Palm_Era released his album called ‘Coincidental’ under the record label Illuminated Paths from Florida, USA in 2015. He has also collaborated in compilations that have been released by the netlabel Modismo and netlabel Epasonidos. These days, he is presenting ‘Gimo’, his first publication under Modismo which travels between diverse rhythms built with complex and yet innovative structures. ‘Gimo’ essentially takes us into a profound and flavorful trip where basslines and synths that are analogically worked combine. In this work, Palm_Era reveals his good taste and skills. The way to approach percussion in this record excels due to its production duty and Latino sense. Samples lead to a trance that is hard to get rid of and melodies gleams at the right time, as well as the details in experimentation. All this results in a very refreshing and futuristic album that will stand out in time without a doubt.

For Example John – The first 12 Decades

[Wuerfel 21]

For Example John

“The first 12 Decades”

Der Mob sinniert, der Bornierte schunkelt sich die müde Gleichgültigkeit von der Seele und überhaupt ist alles ganz ganz anders. For Example John (Mainz / Köln) stapfen nach Belieben durch die Stile ohne jemals die zynischen Gesten für das Konstrukt Leben zu verlieren. Das passt es ins Bild, das die zwei die Haupt-Protagonisten ihr Kollektiv (sic!) bei Bedarf nur zu gerne durch temporär verfügbares Familienpersonal ergänzen.

Der Titel des Albums dient als Hinweis auf die stilistische Entwicklung der Johns. Wilderten sie früher noch allzu gerne in Punkrock-Gefilden, so wetzen sie sich heute lieber die Hörner am weit gefassten Pop-Entwurf ab. (Ach ja die Hörner. Die sind nicht umsonst in Kombination mit der Discokugel in das Bandlogo eingeflossen. Und klingen sie nicht einfach wunderbar im Opener, dem „For Example John Song Song“?)

Wie dem auch sei. Über die Jahre haben sich allerlei Perlen angesammelt und nebeneinander aufgereiht. Hier findet das Agitative, das Sonderbare, aber auch das Alltägliche nebeneinander seinen Platz. Mal englisch, mal deutsch im besten DAF-Jargon, mal skurril, mal nachdenklich, mal romantisch und mal ernüchtert. Da ist Schlager, da ist Country, da ist Eurodance und da ist vor Allem charmanter Trash auf poliertem Parkett.

Ist das nun schon überspitzter Eklektizismus?

David Evan Krebs – Tides

[CAEX0005]

David Evan Krebs

“Tides”

This is music for sound explorers who want to explore the canyons of sound but keep near the touchstone of melody. David Alan Krebs’ “Tides” discovers gently evolving drone sounds and, in particular, the textures within sound variations. Each track feels like a visit to a garden of diverse Baja California—each piece is distinct, solitary, spiky in its own way, and pleasantly alien. The pieces range from less than a minute to a few minutes each. The listener is pulled into a single musical in each track, which is investigated thoroughly and dispassionately. Listening is a pleasure rather than a laboratory explosion. Every piece presents the listener with its own bit of sonic intrigue. This is music that is clinical in its experiments while retaining its humanity. The artist eschews beats, time-signature-melodies, and pat ambient themes. Instead, pieces like “Draping Slowly” and “Crevices” contain music which neither panders to nor pulverizes the listener. No two pieces are faintly alike, but all the pieces fit well together. In “Cloud Base (Stage Two)” the drone hovers in that angelic space between the familiar and the strange, where the insights feel within grasp but the conclusions are wordless. The dozen tracks which make up “Tides” are ideal listening for an Autumn day, or an autumnal mood. David Alan Krebs takes us on a journey, and we are delighted to hike along.

C. Reider – Listening After the End

C. Reider

“Listening After the End”

“Listening After the End is a study of one’s immediate environment, of the resonant potential of what surrounds us. A frozen stream. A passing train. A ceiling fan. The wind. A cat plays; someone sneezes; an autoharp lets out a long hum. These vignettes–textural, spacious, and sonorous–are wonderfully evocative pieces that, when taken as a whole, form a vibrant sonic life, one that revels in the animus to be found in even the subtlest of things.”
