The music of oculoss is mainly of an atmospheric nature. Sometimes less is more, making his music ideal for listening while working, sleeping or doing other things.
In “Parallel Path” oculoss explores texture, consistency, and a type of variety that could be called subtle. This is not the utopian ambient of the typical soundscape artist. This EP is serious music for serious people.
La voix est le premier instrument avec lequel Töfie a composé. Sa curiosité la pousse sur la voie de l’instrumentation pour y transposer l’expérience vocale. C’est la naissance du projet Töfie, en 2012. Le logiciel Garage Band est le premier témoin de ses expérimentations pop et électroniques qui donnent lieu à la sortie d’un LP sur le label Linge Records.
Töfie prends un virage en épingle. Son electronica mute en une synth-wave sombre, lourde et blessée par des sons industriels, mais empruntant paradoxalement des formats très pop. Tout un éco-système de sons organiques et telluriques qui se confrontent à des sons digitaux, crus et agressifs, qui rappelleront sans doute ceux de Gary Numan ou Fever Ray.
Des textes en anglais, islandais, allemand et en français accompagnent l’exploration des synthétiseurs et d’enregistrements acoustiques transposés sur les rythmes tranchants, doux et totalement versatiles.
Nearly four years after we debuted our improvBloc series, the series that’s focused on improvisational sessions returns with a weird and wonderful installment by Eli & The Mannings (or EATM)!
Magical Cookies takes you on a sonic odyssey. One which can be summed up best by the following selection from the liner-notes… “Transitioning effortlessly across genres between (and sometimes during) songs, EATM explores elements of hip hop, rock, jazz, blues, soul, folk, pop, country, latin, spoken word, comedy, and other forms to create truly original, one-of-a-kind recordings.”
Enjoy the ride… it’s sure to be a fun one!

The topic of this EP is the state of being, the shifts in thinking and the question of identity, when the country you were born in does no longer exist on the political map of the world. Thoughts on this topic were gathered from various Lithuanian artists in order to compose this EP, which was initially a performance for a group exhibition “I Was Born in a Country That No Longer Exists” presented in 2017, in Duisburg, Germany.
M.A.K.T. Sono – Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul – was created in february 2018 from a common taste for improvisation forms that rely more on indetermination and surprise than on the mastering of instrumental skills. They both use electronic tools whose complex settings can generate unexpected sound events and unstable situations. Their first album “If you were a clarinet” consists of 3 selections of slightly edited improvisations recorded in february and march 2018. These improvisation sessions were an opportunity for them to set up their working methodologies and to experiment playful and meditative dialogs between gesture & sound, activity and inactivity, machines and living creatures.
Magali Albespy is a dancer and performer. She likes to question the borders between formats and artistic disciplines. She explores real-time composition with body, video and sound.
Self-taught improviser Kecap Tuyul uses various (and preferably unstable) tools, looking for ways of playing and interacting (with sounds, with other media, with other people) and questionning the traditional ideas of instrumental mastership and composition.

“Paraíso Sintético” (Synthetic Paradise), an album realized in the first semester of 2017 as the author’s thesis, is the product of a year of research and sonic experimentation seeking to characterize the sonic identity of urban spaces. Realized and produced in Medellín, Colombia, this album explores topics ranging from urbanism and the social appropriation of the environment to the relationship between art and society and it reflects on human activity as a condition and determinant of the qualities of the city.
Embarking from the hypothesis that the city has a malleable, artistic and aesthetic potential, “Paraíso Sintético” is an EP composed of three songs performed in the Parque de Berrío, one of the main parks of the city of Medellín. The composition of each song, whose material was recorded at a different time of the day (morning, noon, night), seeks to show how human activity affects the sound spectrum and it proposes an interpretation, from the musical point of view, of this phenomenon.

“BULOG” – Proyek eksperimentasi lintas DIY-Jateng.
Lumbung tak semata tumpukan gabah, tapi sistem kemandirian kerja dan karya. Lumbung memfasilitasi dialog lintas generasi, genre, bahkan status sosial. Kehadirannya merupakan tanggapan atas ketidakpastian: perang, perubahan cuaca (kekeringan), guncangan politik dan ekonomi, serta serangan hama. Sekat-sekat improvisasi mencair di hadapan lumbung. Hentakan lumpang kayu (stone morta) beradu raungan mesin giling modern. Lumbung menjadi tempat penciptaan bunyi dengan komposisi khas, kuat, dinamis dan berbeda tentunya.
Revealing complex interplay, embryonic sensorial analysis and epidermal toxic particles under CPU demands, Hypercube sonic display extends to systemic insensitivity, parametric establishment and modular telepathy over side effects of intercourse adaptation and cosmic lobotomy rituals.
This album also features two tracks re-assembled and tumble dried by Zzy and Jab[ber].wock. Vocals FX on track 2 and track 3 by Metalique. This Album is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Denis (Qebrus).
Here is some indeterminate music for vague wars. You may wish to keep it on at a low volume level in the background, perhaps as an accompaniment to reading or even writing. Ignore it. Nothing will happen.
