The project has existed since 2014. Located in Moscow, Russia.
Concerning the name of the project: in Spanish, “que” means “what” or “what,” so the name can be considered as the question “what to fear?”. In Russian, the word pronounced “kefir” (or “kephir” – a fermented milk drink).
I’m interested in experimenting with sound. I like to combine different noises and strange samples, effects. I love to improvise.
I use a variety of tools, from traditional to homemade. MS-20 Mini, Kaossilator and Kaoss Pad, the Mopho Keyboard, LYRA, casio sk-8. In addition to them, I use different percussion, tambourines. I impose noise and sounds recorded on the telephone recorder. Sometimes I add my poetry and lyrics.
The result is a kind of collage, a mixture of sounds and noises.
“Melting Clinamen” was born from a small deviation from the methodology used by Failure Circle in this serie of compositions Frozen Clinamen that normally uses only sounds recorded while no human intervention is applied to the used set-up ( no-input mixer most of the time). The creation of the first track of this album followed the same rules – except that it used a recording that features some little changes created manually (this sound can be heard between 3min11 et 12m06). This is also the first release in which Failure Circle doesn’t use a no-input mixer but a semi-modular analog synthesizer, the Neutron by Behringer, with no effects except its built-in ones. Another notable difference with the past volumes lies into the way the material has been edited & mixed. The other track of the album (Frozen Clinamen #2M) follows more strictly the Frozen Clinamen methodology, but all sounds were also created with synthesizer. Thus, Melting Clinamen is and isn’t part of the Frozen Clinamen serie.
Methodology of the Frozen Clinamen serie
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
New Abstract Techno EP on New Jersey’s netlabel sub65. Six tracks from the Swiss underground experimental duo Das All. The first track “Don’t Fuck With Das All” is an edit of an exclusive contribution to the eight episode of the lobit procpod podcast.
“The longing for (inner) silence leads the/our being(s) to take the(ir) sound to the outside, exposing it/them as a natural/peculiar/idiosyncratic happening.
This sound is also influenced by collective unconscious – i. e. a global < > local society.
What are we to find in this transcendental process?: all/nothing, a receiver/Pandora’s box, feeding back this inner space which happens to be mute(d).
What are we to do if Monserrat Bustamante Laferte came out of the blue? Our amazement would allow this silence to expand in space-time, procrastinating an explanation.
All these processes/experiences/longings turn this album into a snapshot, a here-and-now portrait, a possible chart for adventurers, uncertain for our recent past, stamping our existence until the end of silence.
For this is no comfort zone approach: neither pop nor tape music nor free improv, but all of them instead, a García Canclini-like hybrid, pointing out an emerging possibility for our countries.
Who are these people?
This makes it even more interesting: deeply rooted in crossover practices, GMSs play cumbia on Monday, jazz on Tuesday, and experimentalia on Wednesday.
Martín/Benavides (M/B), one of the most outstanding musicians nowadays, accompanying Chilean acts such as Francisca Valenzuela, Chancho en Piedra, Los Tres, and many others. He is also a great performer in an extremely complex and mesmerizing instrument, such as the theremin.
Gerardo/Figueroa (G/F), composer and musicologist, participant in several Chilean underground scenes and venues from early on: radio shows, such as Musiclaje, and Pueblo Nuevo en Conexión Social; producer of singer-songwriter Camila Moreno’s early recordings. A sui géneris ol’ skool, chatting freewheelingly and unhamperedly with newer generations.
Seiten/Wall (S/W), young composer prone to challenging audiences with unconventional ideas and practices. representing the twilight zone where all sounds and formats meet. At present, he is also a board member of Comunidad Electroacústica de Chile (CECH).”

Laura Cavan is a french visual artist who also works with sounds, and especially natural ones like in her first album Unsuspicious. This project started in 2016 when Laura Cavan was studying arts in Marseille and created an installation using pieces of wood found in the area of her school (which is located close to a forest). The insertion of contact microphones in these pieces of woods allowed to transmit small vibrations emitted by its inhabitants : termites. The resulting sounds were sent in real time through headphones for the installation’s visitors.
Early 2019, some of these sounds have been selected, edited and mixed by Kecap Tuyul in for the realisation of this album. Different, light treatments (mostly equalization) have been applied to the orginal tracks, without trying to hide the recorder’s hiss nor other unwanted sounds, but rather with the aim of letting appear all aspects of the recordings in an organic way. The results don’t pretend to give an accurate reproduction of termit’s sound but should rather be considered like sound pieces where the recording technology is a part of the material and not a transparent medium. As a sequel of this release, Kecap Tuyul is currently working on tracks mixing electronic sounds with Laura Cavan’s recordings.
The artwork is made of a selection of Laura Cavan’s drawings of these wood pieces which that were created for her installation.
A.d.du.nord is a musician who doesn’t work in a particular style but is guided by ideas of the moment without feeling compelled to maintain a single sound aesthetic. His first releases have been a few minimalist drone tracks published in 2018. He now aims to create some kind of “post-music” that is “strange and dysfunctional”. In short, a.d.du.nord is a project for free experimentation, where everything is possible.
Sana Grano is some kind of mixtape that gathers ten one minute long improvised sequences created with granular synthesis tools. The choice of samples was purely intuitive, and the results are partially aleatory. But if you listen between the lines, you may find reminscences of dub and afrobeat.
his project (Eniac), has started in 1997 as an experimentation on the use of feedbacks and tape loops. In 1999 he started publishing music with a tape (split with Cria Cuervos); then the project evolved in different directions over the years: computer music, glitch, anche elctreoacoustic. He released music for recodx label like: Acustronica, Adaadat, Almost Halloween Time, Cathedral Transmissions, Chew-Z, Creative Sources, Edison Box, Many Feet Under, Sonospace, Touchin’ Bass.
Cangiante represent a point of view on the past (20 years) and on the future (the new projects will be under the name of Fabio Battistetti and Brezza).
The tracks have been composed at Blue Angle studio, between 2018 and 2019, using recordings and loops from the personal archive, including a short excerpt from a track recorded in 1999.
The titles of the tracks are quotes and references to past influences over the course of 20 years and visions of the present:

After 5 years spent exploring improvised and noise guitar, Xavier Mussat opened a parenthesis without his usual instrument. He recorded abstract sound ambiances to be used as background sounds to accompany the work of his students during the intuitive drawing classes he gives. Here simplicity prevailed : he used the cheap internal microphone of his computer and several objects (bowls, balls, crumpled paper, table, and finally a hint of prepared banjo), as well as remixed sounds taken from videos of snowy landscapes. Experimenting with the austerity of a minimalist aesthetic, he extracted 4 tracks from these raw textures and materials.
Take a pipette and drip a drop of water on your own palm. Transparent drop, full of invisible organisms, chemical elements, and personifications. Looking at the drop, thoughts are spinning. With the other hand rub the drop until the drop penetrates the skin and disappears. Hands need lots of water, but it’s enough for this time. Look at the lake…
The album was based on Lithuanian Chronicles, history and historical personalities, who might be connected to each in strange ways. While working on each track special attention was given to convey with sounds all the aspects of each historical personality and their influence on the history of Lithuania.
“The album De Sica is made using custom modular patching systems for synthesis and composition in which the analogue and the digital join hands: a continuous signal through patch cables performing analogue voltage control of an almost infinite variety of parameters and available hardware modules.
Many forms of music simultaneously existing locally and accessible in the global exchange are creating a continuum of events–geographically and historically–musical works that transcend discrete performances. Relatively differentiated musical objects (releases, labels, creators) or images of music can be ‘dequantized’ into a continuity of known and undiscovered structures. Music is continuous with everyday life from which it emerges.
The creative force on this album is sourced from personal stories and since it is part of an infinite music space, its undulations between music and noise are deeply interconnected with community, society, and politics.” (excerpt from liner notes on the USB-booklet)

(The Acousmatic Musical Experience & The Uncanny)
Federico Schumacher Ratti (Editor)By Miguel Vera-Cifras.
The work we are presenting today is part of a process of research, creation and listening carried out by a team of researchers, collaborators, and auditors, under the direction of the faculty of Psychology at the Universidad Diego Portales. An initiative that involved numerous people, including those who ultimately worked on the final design of the written document, its translation into English, and on the features that extend this process beyond the text.
This represents an interdisciplinary work, published under a Creative Commons license, whose hybrid imprint includes a book, a recording, and a web presence. Three channels of action and circulation mutually nourish one other. A printed book, also in PDF digital version. A CD featuring the musical creation entitled “Lo Inquietante” (The Uncanny) by Federico Schumacher, who also serves as a researcher and editor of the book. And, finally, a playlist of acousmatic musical pieces by the same author, uploaded to the Pueblo Nuevo website, where they can be visited in a manner that is personalized and free. Hence, there are three ways in which the reader, listener and navigator are summoned jointly to read, listen and participate, either by introducing themselves to the theoretical discussions, by listening to the accompanying musical creation, or by immersing themselves freely in the playlist that extends the format of the book to unprecedented reconfigurations yet to come…
Since their beginnings in February 2018, M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul) have been experimenting with different set-ups and ways of playing. Amongst them, they like to play both on the same instruments / set-ups in the same time. It’s what they did on ‘UNK.0, an improvisation played on a no-input mixer. The other tracks of this EP are electronic compositions by Kecap Tuyul and Doedelzak using this improvisation as only sound material.
The music of WHΛLT THISИEY is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths. WHΛLT THISИEY selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same quantities that emerges from encounters between the past and the present, drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life again, so to produce the same effect of the original freshness and spontaneity, a mirror that transforms it absorbs and reflects.
WHΛLT THISИEY mixes impressionist piano atmospheres, spoken wordcore, drone, experimental, library, hypnotic escapism music. WHΛLT THISИEY aka Fernando Cerqueira is the founder member of Thisco record label and publisher of Antibothis anthologies.
Fernando Cerqueira was the founder member of the late 80’s SPH tape / record label.

Last summer, my former bandmate asked me to process and glue his field shots, which he had taken during the holidays in Croatia. I liked the idea so much that I threw myself into this adventure and did all kinds of field shots with my old Nokia Classic 2300. With the material of Mathias and myself, I ventured into a new universe. This resulted in this over 2 hours long work, which should correspond to a timeless time capsule. This was my first work in this direction and it was a lot of fun, although a lot of time was taken.
>From outward journey to stay to return, this album breaks down a bit of modern history and does not leave much room for distraction. In the first chapter, the listener soon notices that the technician had forgotten to turn off his iPhone after field recording and most likely fell asleep. Sometimes one hears his breath, which fits in calmly on the whole chapter. Chapters 2 and 3 were then deliberately introduced as hearty life sketches and give the album a true consciousness.
Let yourself be abducted into a world full of appreciation.

This track is about the narcissist mother of family murderer Chris Watts who in an interview blamed her pregnant dead daughter-in-law for her own killing as well as the killing of her two girls.
The second track is a rework by Willi. It was produced at Cadmium Studio.
This release ended in the disbandment of the band Das All that consisted of Willi and me. I offered Willi to mention Cadium Studio on the cover of this release after he mentioned to me he was looking for publicity. He thought the idea so ridiculous that he ended all collaboration with me.
Anastasia Vronski is a versatile experimental musician from Perm, Russia. Since years she has been creating an impressive and quite diverse body of work. Many of her tracks can be classified as “drone “or “noise”, but they always have a specific, often intriguing qualities. Above all, she’s not an artist who will do the same twice, and maybe that’s why some of her pieces are sometimes published separately. Since we thought many of them deserved more exposure, we decided to make a selection of such works in a compilation album : Estrangements, published in two volumes. While first one consisted of 4 minimal conceptual pieces, second one is made of 10 shorter tracks focusing on mysterious ambiances and dense sound textures. One of them, “the pack” wasn’t published before and was made specially for this compilation. The selection of tracks was made by the artist and the label, trying to make the compilation as cohesive as possible. We hope it will make you curious to discover more works from her.
Duality Micro (aka eVade) is a producer from lower Saxony who’s been active since the mid 90s, releasing on a plethora of labels. He’s the inventor of a cable to sync up Game Boys with Korg drum machines.
Previously, he appeared on two 20kbps compilations but this ablum is his first release on our label under this moniker. All of the eight songs of the EP are solid, but one that imo stands out is Guten Abend Leute (Nixtauger Mix 2), an addictive minimal tech-house track, where you’ll automatically start to shake along.
“Divertimento al Amanecer”
José Vicente Asuar RemixesElectronic music by José Vicente Asuar has influenced several generations of composers, both within the realm of electroacoustic music and other genres using technology as a means, ranging from techno to hip-hop, the latter at least in Chile. This has been proven, especially in recent years, with the growing rediscovery of his figure and work and his definitive positioning in the musical spectrum via academic writings and , especially, his complete electroacoustic oeuvre release (“Obra Electroacústica” / pncd08 / Pueblo Nuevo 2011) and Variaciones Espectrales documentary, by Carlos Lértora (2013).Therefore, and after several tributes due to Asuar’s death in January 2017, we wanted to carry out a new tribute, this time inviting the entire community to revisit the electronic body of work of the Chilean pioneer.
We have got together two perspectives, two schools: the electroacoustic one, which creates new pieces up from short sounds or sections from pieces by the honouree; the other one, in the vein of remix and sampling, also creates from the same sources, generating new works or tracks located in techno, ambient, hip-hop, and other related aesthetics.
In this deconstructive exercise, which we have called Divertimento al Amanecer, the pieces to work with were, precisely, Divertimento (1967) and Amanecer (1977).
The restriction was the use of one piece as an only source for a version, remix, etc., not merging both pieces into a single new one. Each author had to choose one or another work to participate, since the result of this call would be organized into a two-part compilation (sides A and B, corresponding to one of the two pieces each), participants were required to concentrate their efforts into on of the options.
About Asuar original works:
Divertimento “is a piece with great dynamism and speed, full of very elaborated articulations which are constructing the musical discourse with its structural and spectro-morphological richness, that due to its great fluidity, organic liveliness and contrasts that could be said to have a certain baroque character. Something amazing at the same time are rough textures got by modulations and high-speed iterations, that somehow anticipate the birth of granular synthesis and could be related with some moments of works by later authors like Curtis Roads. This work would get the first prize of the Dartmouth Electronic Music International contest, USA, 1970” (Albornoz 2017).
On the other hand, Amanecer is a piece labeled by Asuar as impressionistic, “in the sense of trying to describe, by musical means, the sensations or impressions that the author has about some natural event. In this case it is about sleeping nature that little by little it begins to revive until arriving at a final dance full of life and energy” (Asuar 1989). From a certain point of view, we could say that it is a contemplative work, close to ambient.
Call for works was so successful we were forced to go through a long, steady listening task in order to get the final pace for this release; thus, it presents a wide collection of works inspired by, quoting and appropriating the sound materials straightforwardly, nourished by the expresive and adventurous spirit of José Vicente Asuar. We hope they interest, inspire, and and become sources of enjoyment for all.

In the mood … for evolution.
Walls of machine tones.
Soon to be upgraded. Again.The music by illocanblo can be perceived as rather contemporary art instead of classic electronic or IDM.
His production process consists certain artistic techniques. The machines are fed with his mood and
partially put in generative mode and automated. So illocanblo is like a duo of a human and a machine.
Sticky and cold silicone sealants, spades and screwdrivers allow you to forget the crippling life threatening drama of Strict, Event and Resistance. Another pile-up of sand which was forcefully shaped into something comprehensible and mostly even danceable. Disclaimer – the danceable part is evaluated by the rhythmical insanity of the brain in control of the sequencer. Apply incorrectly and it’ll break your spine.
The wonderful comeback of Gabriele Ragonesi for Florence, one of the most interesting musician out there. His first opus with In Your Ears , was one of the most downloaded in our history.
This work is amazing, plenty of music form prog to rock, from post rock to jazz. Gabriele plays every instruments, is the producer and the recorder, and plays a gentle and affascinating music.Dark Passenger is the perfect journey, take the ride.
The artwork is, like the first work, of the talented William Santiago from his serie “ Zabele “. All is well with Gabriele.
A special thanks to Gabriele Ragonesi, one of the people that is why we are on this.
z(xW+yW) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear : for instance with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier. It was initially thought as lo-fi version of the “Failure Circle” project work with chaotic feedback system of the no-input mixer in a more portable way, but finally took a quite different direction, with a more tactile & acoustic dimension.
3×2(1W+18V) is the first published album of this project. It was recorded in june 2018 with lo-fi means (cell phone and a cheap digital recorder). Each track is a mix of two improvisations played with the most primitive form of z(xW+yV) : one contact microphone, one 1W battery-powered amplifier and two guitar effects (overdrive and equalization).
