From the sub post electronics MirrorFacingMirror starts with an eclectic and disconcerting
sound (not being able to establish whether it is organic or synthetic) just live … it ends up
with any idea that electronic music does not stop surprising us from this duo of American
artists who work in the specific field since the 90s, become a myth.It is more extreme and powerful in the case of RestlessDecay where the rise of American
experimental electronics and its millions of patches and prototypes created by these
pioneer artists of America.
Created for a love of all that is Dark Ambient, British Electronic producer Tony Young (Autoclav1.1) and German Industrial/Noise powerhouse Andreas Davids (xotox); first bore fruits of their labour, with their self-titled, monolithic debut in 2018.
2019, continues the story with “Second”. A new chapter of colossal, brooding ambient; where light is slowly crushed by shade, within a multi-faceted arena of sound.
From the nightmarish journey through dying forests and the ruined vestiges of humanity depicted in their debut; the path now leads across desolate moorland and hilltops to the coast. The sea levels are now rising; and we have to face the inevitable, that all will be consumed.
Once more, Natura Est have produced an album that stands tall within the genre; holding an aural mirror to the world, provoking one question. Nature is all, all is nature; but who really is the beast?

Under the Podarces pseudonym Benoît Rouits (who also plays oboe in Jukpic ) creates experimental improvised music with keyboards. Last year he made us discover one of his old works : “A Frozen Journey”, made in 2009 with virtual synthesizers and inspired by some writings of Philip K. Dick. We enjoyed this album a lot and although it undoubtedly stands on its own we felt its minimalist abstraction could make it a very interesting material to incorporate in new works. We made this suggestion to Benoît and some other collaborators and aquaintances who agreed and accepted to contribute remixes of what is now called “Frozen Journeys”, featuring the original tracks as well as remixes by Humanfobia, Human Koala, Nina Kardec, Anastatsia Vronski, Kecap Tuyul, Nicolas Tourney, Sig Valax, Filmy Ghost, Yann Pillas, Thomas Park, Luciftias, Doedelzak.
The musical paradigm shift from the outermost points. Believe that we arrive on the cusp of a new musical age. from US, Canada, Argentina, Germany, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Belgium, Russia, Belarus, Singapore, South Korea and Japan.

z(xW+yV) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear. After some tries with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier he developped a modular system on this basis, in order to generate not only feedback, but also feedback of feedback, and feedback of feedback of feedback (…) by chaining amps and microphones in a circular way that blurs more and more the distinction between sound source and sound’s reproduction, between acoustic musical instruments and electronic sound diffusion.
Unlike its first album 3×2(1W+18V) whose 3 pieces where mixes of 2 improvisations, Trois Prises features only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers). Track 1 & 3 contain no edits, track 2 was edited from a longer improvisation.
The album “Discrete Objects” was conceived whilst observing geometry in nature and trying to make a connection between it, neuroscience and abstract physics theories. This led to the question; could using a series of ‘discrete objects’ intentionally cause a cognitive change in the listener?
To test this idea, a number of processes (discrete objects) were used to enhance the recordings. This envolved the subtle usage of neural oscillators (alpha, beta, delta, gamma and theta waves), isochronic tones, binaural beats, harmonic counterpoint and stereo placement.
The result was a slowly evolving musical body of work in which the listener is gradually coaxed into an altered state, vaguely equivalent to ‘tripping’.
In order to fully take advantage of this album, playback on decent stereo speakers that are optimally placed, or good headphones are recommended. However, Discrete Objects can still be enjoyed from a purely musical aspect without these recommendations.
Corruttela is an Italian side-project rising from the artistic connection of Emiliano Pietrini (Globoscuro) + Edoardo Pistolesi Somigli (Edø Pistø Sømi) with the aim of exploring new sound potentialities through a 4-hands compositional approach in which the two artistic personalities are giving birth to a renovated concept, in which electronic and analogue ambient refined flows are walking arm in arm, and melt in a psychedelic and concrete “harmonious disharmony”. The 4 tracks in this first work are characterized by a heterogeneous homogeneity, mainly based on the alchemic fusion of electronic sounds intertwining with smart piano-esque bleeps, gusts of concrete noise, irrational wooden percussions, synthesizers and theremin that walk together with different kind of steps but in a stubbornly common direction. Paradoxically the panorama that opens up raves geometrically outlined visions, it is a sort of sonic poem without words which leads on a corridor with many doors and many entrances that revolve around the different cardinal points of a common caothic universe.
Since Ölü Körpe was released their ‘Saudade’ music video (bit.ly/SaudadeOluKorpe) in January, I feels it might be similiar with his first album with full of guitar ambient. But, last week, when I was checking my email, suddenly I found that Lutfi-man behind Ölü Körpe- sent me his new album called, Great Migration. There are 5 songs included it. And something fresh from the album is the sounds that he made; Less guitar ambient and more percussive sound.
In ‘Great Migration’, Luthfi had more explore their way and approarch to make a sounds. He literally make a ‘great migration’ of his works; Moved a little bit to the sides from his usual Del Toro-ish (Guillermo, not Benicio) to be manic, awkward, and more anxious with his new approach.
You might want to use good headphones for this 5-songs journey. Luthfi put some interesting movements here and there, so that’s that.

“The “disimagination machine” is both a set of cultural apparatuses extending from schools and mainstream media to the new sites of screen culture, and a public pedagogy that functions primarily to undermine the ability of individuals to think critically, imagine the unimaginable, and engage in thoughtful and critical dialogue: put simply, to become critically informed citizens of the world.”
