“When listening to a sound work, the first thing that presents itself is the sound as a mass; however, in this work of Baltazár, it is the space that is defined around these masses which constitutes an equal or greater presence. I do not mean the silence, but the wake that each sound wave leaves when it is diluted in the process that produces a particular effect or modulation. The sum of these sonic wakes composes a new plane that is separated from the melodies and blocks of noise that make up this work. From “reading between the lines” one passes to “hearing between layers”. It is a constant game of associating and linking what is happening between these, entering the rhythm from the multiple directions through which reality appears to us on a daily basis.
As for sound, it oscillates between acoustic melodic parts and granules of noise that collapse in a cloud of digital processing; in the range of phrases composed of saturated coupling and the reverberation of pure tones.
If we had to make a parallel with painting, we could say that the figure and the background are clearly defined in each piece of “After Kansai” and both alternate in order to approach and move away from the plane in which we inhabit as listeners. The first tending to have few elements with clearly defined lines and the second like a great density of volumes that move in independent directions and sensations that come together and disentangle themselves.
Silence exists in the form as well as the emptiness in the background, but never between them. The sound leaves traces and these traces are those that are structured as the fundamental component of this work.”
Jukpic is a duet of Benoît Rouits (Oboe) and Kecap Tuyul (no-input mixer with effects). They started to improvise regularly together in summer 2017. This is their first album, made of four unstable cocktails: it’s spicy & fruity – to be served very fresh.

The content of this work is a response to what I consider to be one of the main myths about music, in the context of my (and the rest of the composers in this compilation) current hometown.
This Idea primarily circulates around the people, projects, groups and etc. that best adhere to a popular music paradigm.
The romantic idea I’m referring to is the existence of an actual performer (in the more traditional sense performer – instrument) for the music itself to have value.
To which we respond with this tracks.

Born in Sgo del Estero, Argentina, Daniel Abdala is an electronic musician, composer, producer, guitar/bass player, and singer.
Turvia is his main project. It began in 2005, as an industrial-rock oriented band but it evolved forward to become an electronic solo project, with influences of noise, ambient music, synth-pop, experimental and a touch of gothic/esoteric art. His music is trippy, with elements such as mid-tempos, raw landscapes, and twisted voices, but all warped in ethereal melodies.
Some lyrics are in English and other in Spanish. Some tracks have no lyrics and contain only “intentions” or “crucial” words, looking forward to a cryptic although to a concept easy that it is easy to understand.
A stupidly named EP, with unthinkable cover, and idiotic track names.
This EP includes the very first track of Number Eleven. A sandbox where random ideas and experiments merged into incomplete forms while searching for sounds and compositions, which sometimes became source material for new tracks. From this sandbox emerged the first few ideas of the way the first album Indefinable should reach its end, how the Blur should start, and how Protrusion should sound.
As per tradition, six tunes that missed becoming part of past full-length records – collected into an ep, mega-ecclectic as always. Beauty, dirt, melody, chaos, casio beats, screaming, a ballad, grunge riffs, casio-disco, tribal pounding.
“Shadows of the Shepherds: A Brief Retrospective of 2017 Works”
This album is a collection of works from the Awkward Geisha 2017 repetoire. Call it a sampler if you wish. Call it a ‘best of’. Call it art.
Awkward Geisha is a free improvisation ensemble with legs firmly lodged in the avant garde and dada movements.
Members of the ensemble vary from song to song.
The ensemble was put together by Harsh Noise Movement in 2016 as a reaction to the mundane and tedious sounds that insult the eardrums on a daily basis.
On this collection, Awkward Geisha is:
HNM. Eric Jovet. Ludwig Dementgenstein. Gaitoh. Ghostskull. Akano Shibahito. Gimp Gash. Tim Kai. Kryptek.
All songs written by Awkward Geisha except Hellhound on my Trail, written by Robert Johnson.
All songs produced, mixed & arranged by HNM.
The Necrophile Hummingbird presents Vaudou Stellaire by Walt Thisney & Chromatic.
A collaboration done like a new year gift to every listeners who keep their ears open as their mind.
Also one more attempt to break all the borders…
Tracks are recreations from Galactic Voodoo by Walt Thisney
Created in the space between 2017 and 2018.
Chromatic was mostly a plunderphonic project but this time no sample were harmed during the process…
It was such a joy to walk the bridges between our both musical universe,
I hope you will enjoy the vibration.
Thanks a lot to the three Foucherans fairies for their voices on tracks 2/7/11.

This is not a live recording and yet it also is. Part of this concert was ‘semi-acoustic’, not going over the sound system, but using separate smaller speakers and radio speakers. The audience was asked to do a recording on whatever means they had with them, which turned out to be harddisc recorders, camera and mobile phone. All of the ones I received afterwards were used to create the music you are hearing, a collage of various recordings from various points in this space. So its live and not really. I mixed it but did not really edit, as in taking out the ‘bad parts’, it.
melophobia comes from Greece. He likes to experiment with long noise and drone sounds intermingled with field recordings and acoustic sounds. melophobia is heavily influenced by contemporary artists such as Merzbow and early ’90s shoegaze scene. He is active with his ultra-limited releases of his 3″/5″ CDr label ‘illicit-tapes’. He cherishes the piles of his priceless jap noise C-xx tapes and obscure vinyls.
BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambiance. He seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He is the founder of Etched Traumas netlabel.
Antonio Díaz better known as Pirate, is an electronic music producer who lives in Los Lagos, Chile, and who has always been bound to sounds more ambient, IDM, minimal and dub, is now presenting a surprising EP called ‘En el aire estoy’. The journey starts with the track ‘El Pantano Invisible’ with ambient and minimal surrounding noises, a marked bass drum and several reminiscences of the English electronic sounds of the 90’s such as those of F.S.O.L. or The Orb but at the same time maintaining the originality of the sound that distinguishes us. The second track, that gives name to the EP, includes more atmospheric sounds and a beat closer to IDM. With this track, Pirata shows his exponential growth through complete command of softwares and machines he uses to compose. Moving forward to the next song “Espacio On”, we find a galloping beat with atmospheres and a profound sample similar to a mantra. Later we run into ‘Galeno’ in which Pirata shows clear influences of the German electronic sound of the 80’s. The following song is ‘Imperio Lúdico’. In this one, Pirata, who won the French prize ‘Qwartz Electronic Music’ in 2009 under the category ‘Discovery’, comes back to calmer and more ambient sounds with voices that weave together and glitch sounds that always characterize his music. Finishing this trip with ‘Imperio Lúdico’, Pirata invites us to explore in his EP ‘En el aire estoy’ diverse sounds, influences and an extremely high-level production that has allowed him to position himself as one of the most remarkable exponents of the national electronic music.
