Fabio Keiner – Autumn Elegies

Fabio Keiner

“Autumn Elegies “

A warm cold amniotic and cathartic liquid, find yourself on the edge of a wood, feel the leaves play for us. Ambient, neo classical, are just two of the adjectives we could give for this music by the composer Fabio Keiner, a master in creating atmospheres carved in Carrara marble or in the water of a lake at the passage of a swan. Fabio is Austrian and visiting his bandcamp https://fabiokeiner.bandcamp.com, you will discover a fantastic world of a true sonorous and visionary magician that will take you very far. We are honored to be able to publish a record of a musician of such stature, able to capture the heart as few, but above all to make the mind fly for a high-level ambient.

Un caldo freddo liquido solido amniotico e catartico, ritrovarsi sul limitare di un bosco, sentire le foglie suonare per noi. Ambient, neo classica, sono solo due degli aggettivi che potremmo dare per questa musica del compositore Fabio Keiner, un maestro nel creare atmosfere scolpite nel marmo di Carrara o nell’acqua di un lago al passaggio di un cigno. Fabio è austriaco e visitando il suo bandcamp https://fabiokeiner.bandcamp.com , scoprirete un mondo fantastico di un vero mago sonoro e visionario che vi porterà lontanissimo. Siamo onorati di poter pubblicare un disco di un musicista di tale levatura, capace di catturare il cuore come pochi, ma soprattutto di far volare le mente per un ambient di altissimo livello.

Juan Antonio Nieto – Airports & Hotels

[IHab131]

Juan Antonio Nieto

“Airports & Hotels”

Airports & Hotels is a compilation of the sounds I have found in the trips I have made in recent years.

The sources of these sounds are field recordings made at different airports, on airplanes and in hotels. In these last ones the recordings are improvisations with the elements that I found in them and their different stays. These recordings were made with the windows open to capture the sounds of the outside, rain, traffic, people talking, etc.

These sounds were mixed, trying to maintain, as much as possible, the spirit they had at their origin, and rather than identifying the sounds, I wanted them to be intuited.

The different titles of the tracks refer to the places where they were recorded. The majority were mastered and completed in Madrid.

Gozne – Fin del Tiempo

[pn127]

Gozne

“Fin del Tiempo”

“‘Fin del Tiempo’ (‘End of Time’) is not a religious work, although in the creative process, passages from the Bible were the source of inspiration for the concept; for this reason, included along with the download of the album is a PDF document with the verses used.

The ‘Non Human‘ robot has been reduced to the minimum expression, a microchip with software. This allows his artificial brain to survive practically intact to the holocaust of the ‘Fin del Tiempo’.

‘Fin del Tiempo’ is the conclusion of a series of works under one concept with the aliases of Gozne and Zacarías Malden.

‘Fin del Tiempo’ initiates the definitive fusion of styles, where the rhythmic essence of Gozne merges with the purely experimental style of Zacarías Malden.

‘Nation will rise against nation; there will be earthquakes in many places, hunger and turmoil, terror and signs in the heavens; it is necessary for this to happen, but it is not yet the end. ‘ (Jesus of Nazareth). This is also the ‘Fin del Tiempo’, believe it or not, it is already happening.

For this described above, it was appropriate to write the review and / or presentation of the work myself (Gozne), to take the opportunity to thank my family, while ending a stage of my musical career and at the same time initiating another that is more abstract and primitive, minimalist and practically binary, both in audio and video.”

Haase+Santis – Dos Trazos

[pn126]

Haase+Santis

“Dos Trazos”

The second album by the improvisatory duo Johannes Haase (Germany) and Óscar Santis (Chile), in this work we find two strokes, each one with a particular character and energy, music born from an ambient minimalism of high contrast based on the energy and sonority of each of them, together they create these sonorous images of highly oneiric and aquatic depth, that revoke the dunes, the sea, and the factories near Ritoque.

Trazo uno (Stroke one); of an aggressive character, contained and defragmented, the sonorities created by the electric violin of Haase are hidden between textures blurred by processes and loops, these at moments, contrasted by the electronics of Santis, overwhelming, from aleatoric rhythms and great sonic density, almost pixelated, together they create landscapes that are deconstructed and assembled in an organic way, creating textures of high spatiality.

Trazo dos (Stroke two); a deep and spacious texture, of aquatic time that is constructed of subtle gestures that coexist in a state of contemplation, the temporal absence that they generate immerses us in a very deep listening almost like daydreaming, a continuous variation that little by little comes and goes transforming and giving rise to this fragmented minimalism that brings us back to that which is human.

A disc where temporality and form are given through the organic needs of the moment, which takes us into subtle states of listening, where we can manage to enter the fine interwoven fabric and the decisions through which the music was tacken on, at the personal level, a work of brief landscaping with an occultist essence, two strokes that propose contrasting states from the same nature, listening and freedom.

Slit In Slot – Birthmarks

[mhrk190]

Slit In Slot

“Birthmarks”

“Birthmarks” by Slit In Slot is an emotional, harsh and considered work. A precise, even meticulous amalgam of field recordings, ambient and noise music, the release combines as much as it dissects all of its core components. The resulting music is sometimes drifting, sometimes scorching but always remaining humane. Beneath “Birthmarks” lies a strong and personal concept, a complex understanding of sound and an obsessive desire to transform the sonic ruins of our shared reality into new worlds.

Number Eleven – Strict

[EEM025]

Number Eleven

“Strict”

Damaged with disorders, constant reconstructions, and wrong decisions, while losing the ability to dictate your own rules, Strict falls into a state of attacking everything that could lead to a failure, introducing a crude self-defense mechanism of attacking everything that is interfering with principles of existence. All this has the potential of destroying all bonds and connections, dismissing the opportunities, just to find the cause of disorders, ripping every reason of existence just to have an answer.

Regained, recuperated anger and blasts combined with illogical analytic attacks, resulting in a powerful complex forge of rhythmic structures which are hard to stand and fathom, coupled with the angry synthesis of orchestral and electronic surges of extreme insanity and sadness put at the precision of a scalpel.

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.

“/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.

[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

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?
