Cinealarm – is like you’re sitting at work and suddenly the sirens begin to roar everywhere and on the radio, oldfashion soviet-radio style voice is heard: “Attention! Attention! Cinealarm!”. Then people start panic, although they do not know what to do and it’s unclear where the movie approaches to them. It is not an expensive Hollywood movie. It’s not even the cheap horror of the 80’s. It’s more like some unpopular surrealistic films of not very well-known directors or a collection of short films by these directors.
From the Great Beyond. Brief summary from the exploration log of “La Mirada del Sonido” (The view of sound).
“We might expect that in the convergence of the works of Mika Martini and Iñaki Muñoz, one would encounter realizations that contain the most essential of the experimental music and visuality from this territory. From the auditory, Martini integrates sound clusters inspired by the electroacoustic ancestors of this generation, and from the visual, the glazes in motion of La Bella Violencia evoke the chromatic layers of Roberto Matta, adding without doubt, the chaotic force of chance and error.
Martini and Muñoz have experimented with the transit between materializations analogous and numerical, tangible and intangible. The work is configured as a portal. In ‘La Mirada del Sonido’ images and sounds are integrated, relieving a friendly narrative tension, it could be the soundtrack of an initiatory trip towards the center of our brain, where the neuronal transmissions seem to be granted an aesthetic through this work, chemically activating the DMT that exists in our systems.
These materializations, which function as neuronal chemical releasers, deliver a sensorial experience that determines a respectful concentration, where music and images are integrated into an organic volume that is perhaps unrepeatable, inconsistent, based on the unique experience of turning seeing and hearing into a total virtuality.”

WENIG DUO | Studies on event-density
LIVE AT PENINHA
“Wenig Duo focuses on the activity of silence where the space works as an amplifier and assumes an important role in the performance.
With a crystallized language, the music of the duo is attentive to detail, it’s written and invites the listener for a greater awareness of the sound where this duo, formed by the musicians Guilherme Rodrigues and André Hencleeday operate.
The instrumentation is variable.”
“O duo WENIG foca-se na actividade do silêncio numa performance e no resultado deste enquanto amplificador do espaço.
A música do duo, já com uma linguagem cristalizada, é uma música atenta ao detalhe, de suporte escrito e que convida o ouvinte para um retiro de maior consciencialização do som do espaço, da música e dos seus envolventes.
É formado pelos músicos Guilherme Rodrigues e André Hencleeday e é de instrumentação variável.”

Introspective drone / ambient / noise / shoegaze album. This album is about yearning for the deeper meaning of things, asking yourself if you really want to climb those steep slopes that drive you further and deeper into the mountain range. Why do we crave what is out of reach? Why do we want the unsustainable? What drives some to blindly follow their dream while others settle for the safe obscurity? Photo by Sandra Vallaure.

Szymkowiak Joseph and Eric Duriez are two sonic explorers who work alone or in collaboration to cumulate the energy from both of them – each one has his own personal way and point of view, but has a symbiotic conception of sound. They use electronics, pedal effects, guitar, bass, metal plate, spring instrument.
Gomon is the product of cold city sounds, which is mixed with guitar riffs and chthonic myths. The music of this project is a search for the atmosphere in the world of dreams for a breath of fresh air. The first album Kenoma comes from the faceless emptiness of human nature. We praise the biological body, its voice, its movements, which is decorated by plastic and metal. We bathe in post-rock among the stars, listen to the folk-echoes of our ancestors and descend into the depths of the subconscious with the help of ambient and drone elements.
Autism enters a cold, self-satisfactory state of no response to any attempt to contact, trying to believe there is no possibility for communication. The idea is progressing with a wrong assumption that mute doesn’t mean nonexistent, relying on Autistic thinking, assuming as if it is immune to an emotion. Realizing that it’s wrong leads to a colossal reaction, causing a worsening of the state of existing disorders to a complete malfunction of the whole thinking structure.
Structurally difficult and non-paced attacking rhythms, getting more complex and running from rules dictated by background structures, while those rules fading away, anxious melodies which are trying to compensate the constant urge to lose the control of composition.
What happens when a human being spends his whole life in a cave without contact to the outer world and after going out the first thing he does is music? Something like this album happens. It’s mad because beats and melodies are mad – one moment they are drifting far away like a foggy dream, the next moment they are coming back and walk towards you on their massive wolfram pillars. But they’re sane because everything is well structured. Even the seemingly insane rhythmic structures of Innner Peece are quite simple at heart.
Isn’t it too simple? Made with a 10 year old software from basic 10 year old samples? Consider it like a fossil from times when the Matrix was still something new and sensational, and everyone was still listening to trance, not psytrance – the original trance. Like a can with a sample of air conserved with those moments.
Every track is a separate composition, every track has its own unique sound and mood, consider this album a compilation of 10 different stories. And even more – each of them has its own hand-drawn artwork which also is an anachronism in this computer graphic ruled world. Artworks are like impressions that pop into an abstract mind after listening to the sounds.
“Red Kite” (‘Cometa Roja’ in Spanish) is a project by Sergio Sánchez, sound artist and anointed experimental musician in Murcia (Spain), that is born from the need to bring together several of his scattered works that did not follow the aesthetic criteria of his better known alias, ‘Jazznoize‘.
These compositions are differentiated by the use of distinct sound sources. While with ‘Jazznoize‘, the principle element for sonic experimentation is the field recording, with ‘Red Kite‘ it is precisely the opposite, electronic music as a compositional basis for generating sound structures that participate in what Kim Cascone called ‘Aesthetic of error’, centered on the less complacent drone and ambient genres. The post-digital sounds, with the use of software and instruments such as samplers and some low fi synthesizers, are the principle reference coupled with a Marxist ideological posture in the conception of his works.
An example of this is his new work under this pseudonym. It is titled ‘#1‘, and brings together topics inspired by some moments of the twentieth century, such as the revolution in Germany organized by the Spartakus League, or the Argentine dictatorship with his criticism of the 1978 World Cup that celebrated goals while a genuine genocide and the suppression of liberties was occuring, and also the revindication of revolutionary and anti-imperialist Marxism by a well known figure, Ernesto Che Guevara. The other two recordings move away from the political commitment to concetrate on highlighting figures like the composer Eliane Radigue. And in the case of ‘Olimpo’ (Olympus) it is a stylistic exercise, a simple re-reading of the previous themes using samplers from some micro-sounds. The most significant influences for generating the textures of ‘Red Kite‘ are Oval (his first works), Tim Hecker, Fennesz, Adam Pacione, Alva Noto, but with an isolationist edge in his sound and with a sense of repetition as a nodular element that redirects the noises and the melodies of his compositions.”

“Death Dubitabilis is sunny walk down gentle warm dreams over soft breeze. And then it all turns to shit. Dropped the really big one. Slowly led by the hand to give crushing sounds of reality pulled down up apart on insistence from gravity’s violence. And we still can’t find where we parked. The lousy future gets worst every time it’s here. Stuck in the Death Dubitabilis. Got no more cigarettes. Light years in puffy awed hell.”
Project [mikra] is a permanent resident of PZ104ORBIT. And the Izvнe project is presented for the first time. This is an electric musical duo of Sasha Polanski and Arina Kalinina from Velsk (Arkhangelsk region, Russia).
Split album “Deformation” consists of two “bonus” tracks, which were conceptually dropped from the current project material [mikra] and Izvнe. It turned out that the split all began to sound harmoniously and acquired its completeness.
For its 33rd release, Da ! Heard It Records dives into the origins of Creation.
Recorded in five days in London, at James Ogilvie’s studio in 2010, Dragon’s Teeth is the confrontation of eddie 135’s experimental tweaks and Shitblaster’s science of mix. Saturated like the oil from the fish and chips that three musicians greedily gulp up between two work sessions, the series of improvisations produced by Adrien, Matthieu, and James one evening, serves as the sizzling play-do used to conceive this future disc. From this initial magma that blends rhythm boxes, Juno synthesizer, and a deluge of pyrotechnical effects, accidental beaches form and reveal little by little large blankets that wrap the listener into an actual flow of lava. Petrified, the listener thus takes all the time needed to let oneself become invaded by the ensemble’s numerous textures…
Taking everything with them on their way, the four gobbling geezers deployed here evolve in jolts to bring back from the depths this mysterious dragon’s tooth. Instinctive, brutal, yet mastered, this album’s boiling energy proves once more that the first idea is often the right one.

Satanoid – an audio project by Finland’s Sami Kekkonen – investigates the borders of what could be considered extreme sonic decimation.
Listening to his album “Astronomical Disease”, you will find out that, despite the seemingly persistent illusion that today’s abundance of electronic music continually collides into a mode of endless reiteration, there is still room for refreshing experiments.
This magnificent slaughterhouse of relentless modular deconstruction easily obliterates any previously established notion of high BPM’s and intelligent (de-)composition, while viscerally exploiting those quasi-aleatoric holes few humans are likely to have ever conceived of.
A masterful work that deserves your undivided attention, if like me, you crave for things that are entirely authentic.
This work explores a shift of perspective from my current work. By including of elements of personal vocal narrative, which were first explored in ‘abha’ (1995/6), this work emphasises the presence of the artist as an archetypical environmental occupant and participant, a principle that lies at the heart of my work. In the first movement improvised location performance, often a major feature of my work, is reduced to a mere, but significant fragment. In the 2nd and 3rd movements, there are further environmental observations from a personal perspective tracking a particular trajectory of silica usage through human activity.
1st Movement – Crucible.
Silica immersed in the crucible of natural forces. The sea as a dynamic, wave-active element, with the destructive forces of rolling, the breaking and grinding of flint and chert stone, wave motion stresses produce sand over millennia – the raw material containing silica from which glass is manufactured. The human presence has metaphoric as well as literal significance in the responsible and sustainable use and management of this and all our natural resources.
2nd Movement – The Milk Round.
Part 1 – The Dairy Crest Depot.. Preparation for delivery, organization, distribution. The constructive and organizational forces of industrial, metal, mechanical motor motion operate together with human activity where silica is integrated as recyclable packaging for a consumable product.
Part 2 – The Milk Round Delivery. Silica embedded as container vessel within human, animal and mineral, intrinsic and extrinsic elements. Human activity takes place within a context of a wider urban ecosystem, with allusions to the co-existence of animal and human social behaviour in conversation.
3rd Movement – The Glass Collection. (Contains very occasional strong language.)
Following usage and consumption, silica disposal now becomes a recycling process as part of local government policy in an urban social context.
1st Movement – Recorded on location at Milford on Sea (17/11/16), 2nd Movement – Recorded at Dairy Crest, Nottingham (21/09/09), 3rd Movement – Recorded at Carlton, Nottingham (05/01/17).
The artist would like to thank Dairy Crest and operative Pete for permission to record on their premises and in the electric milk float. All recordings were made in a single take live on location and have been edited for this work using Cockos Reaper software.
Recorded in binaural stereo using custom in-ear binaural techniques. Microphones DPA4060, recorders Tascam DAP1 (2nd Movement), Sound Devices 744T (1st and 3rd Movements). Optimised for headphone listening.
The album is based on five melodic idioms. As any other repeated action their frequency occurs neither with monotony nor with irreflection but with a kind of advertence. This frequency gradually organizes all structures of consciousness, giving birth to genuine contemplation. ‘however, I desire to speak five words with my mind so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in a tongue’ (1 Cor. 14:19).
“Elsa Bergman (double bass) and Óscar Santis (Likembe, mixer, soundboxes, effects, computer), deliver us a generous recording of their first encounter as a duo of improvisers. The album, called Errante, was conceived in its fullness in the magical landscapes of Amereida.
The result is translated in a mixture of exquisite and varietal languages, distinguished by the hypnotic seduction corresponding to the interpretation of Elsa Bergman, who in accordance with her worldview manages to articulate a more onomatopoeic and percussive line as compared to Óscar Santis, the owner of a structured and ferrous sonic vocabulary.
These conversations, generated in an autopoietic state, deliver us soundscapes cemented with Nordic emulsions and the saline corrosion accumulated for decades in the territory of Ciudad Abierta (Open City).
The atmosphere that Errante offers us is divided in seven electrifying cuts, with “Autopista” being the most extensive track (12:05), which ends in magnificent fashion this exchange of musical expectations y concerns that pass through the fields of minimalist electronica and the indelible legacy of free-jazz.”

The fifth Thuoom full-length, Fokus, is filled with rhythmic songs soaked in IDM influences, and at places the record is the most playful Thuoom has ever been. With these songs Tuomo used a more layered approach than before and more than half of the songs employ sine waves. Furthermore, there are three songs where the beat has been formed by manipulated beatboxing.
Instruments used on this record: acoustic guitar, beatbox, cutlery, garlic, garlic press, glitches, human voice, knives, plates, scissors, sine waves, sparkling water, water bottle.
Consists of eight pieces where elements of contemporary music are combined with electroacoustics passages that progressively mix through dark and dense progressions of the most abstract electronic sound,giving rise to a parallel reality invaded by robotic voices,encoded messages transforming the sound landscape by overlapping layers in a corrosive and shadowy order of chaos.
Composed and performed by Pablo Ribot

In Carinae, M-PeX explores the conceptual symbiosis between the original sound of the portuguese guitar, to which is added the sound of André Coelho’s contrabass, and the ambient electronic sound which is born out of an experimental and digital manipulation of sounds captured on the portuguese guitar for the acoustic themes. Photography by Carina Nunes and graphical artwork by Marco Madruga.
Far Rainbow create vast neo-psychedelic slabs of gradually developing sound. “Somewhere Out There Was The Wave” is perhaps their darkest and purest release so far- a single expanding piece created from murky drones and loops and ominous percussion, the work has enormous dynamic control and intensity that sustains interest for its full duration.

Downbeat is a project that mutates, changes with the time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders. Their second album takes the sound a step further towards experimentation. Downbeat look at their interior and connect themselves with genres they always got inspired from: Dub, Dubtronica, Jazz and Fusion.
“Introspección” is the beating of their heart, each heartbeat navigated by a different state of mind. Looking at oneself is like a magical journey within, guided by the mystical power of the ancestral plants.
The dub sounds are present throughout the album with atmospheric musical landscapes. This is not the typical dub album, trying to look like its coming out from an island … this is the dub of the mountain … the dub of the Andes … the dub of the Aconcagua … the dub of Las Heras. That’s why it’s hard, dark, cold and different. That is why it has power, hypnotism, strength and a sound of its own.
Let us navigate within ourselves, with the heart pulsating on each beat. Heavy Dub, experimental Dub, dedicated to the universe and its infinite power. A triangle for all to travel (SOUND-LIGHT-SHAPE)!
The Swiss duo consists of Andreas Glauser, an experimental artist and musician, who is running the Zürich based art production label brainhall, and music producer and synthesizer wizzard Roman Schürch who aside from his own music has produced numerous remixes for various projects such as Saalschutz, Egotronic, Sedlmeir or Karpartenhund.
The two musicians exclusively use analogue gear such as the Korg Monotribe and manipulated mixing boards to create their amazing and unique electronic sound textures and beat patterns.
It is a real pleasure for us to present this new album by Daniele Ciullini. An intense three tracks album features ambient sounds and industrial atmospheres, endless sonic rugs hanging in the fog that envelops the forgotten monuments of the title.
“Cemetery of the rusty ships”: playing the gap between the spaces of abandoned industrial ruins imagining the noise they were now lost in the mists of a rusty future already past.
The cosmic odyssey of “Empty Factories” is a hymn to industrial decline to the emptiness from its center emerges around degrading and wrapping everything in an infinite melancholy fog.
Something is moving in the “Frozen Abandoned Buildings” where the ice becomes static straight beat, dense implacable as a tribal rite from an ancient future.
For its 32nd release, Da ! Heard It Records introduces Voilé by Vicnet, a music to explore like an unknown space and inviting to seek out the hidden behind the visible, the unheard-of behind the audible.
What can freedom possibly look like in 2017, when everything and its opposite has already been tried, contradicted, canceled, and retried? Vincent Tordjman has asked himself this question many times, especially over the last few years. Since his last album (Mr. Hadopi, released in 2010 on Da ! Heard It Records), despite being busy with adult life, he has kept his passionate heart, and surrounded with three towers filled with machines, keyboards, and rare contraptions, he has not stopped recording, recording, again, always recording. Over seven years, he has evidently accumulated the equivalent of five albums. But too indecisive, too disappointed by the ever fluctuating state of the scene around him, he hasn’t finished anything, or almost nothing. He abandoned two or three skweee disks, an electronic jazz-rock disc, more acid house, as well as compilations of hand-tweaked music composed for the nocturnal electronica scene.
Yet finally, he finished Voilé, an album of a genre that doesn’t exist, without spite and without any other ambition than that to render the unique music that hides within it—and he might have been right to wait.
For the aptly named Voilé, which title matches the impossible-to-source visuals that adorn its sleeve, is so much more than just a new album by an all-too-rare artist that too few in this unjust world would still await. It is the personal diary of a musician too talented for his own good, who, in twelve very generous pieces, poured out all that is most personal, thus best and undoubtedly most beautiful, that his musician heart could produce.
The windfall for the listener is that it doesn’t look like anything. Yet while listening to Aladin, Princess, or Bamako, the listener’s head will not be lacking in images. From the theme of the imaginary film Idée de Question to the psychedelic explosion that is the title piece, historical references are not scarce either. But locking oneself into any which song with eyes closed is all that is needed in order to understand that one is dealing with a rare case of a record played, conceived, and operated with old synths, without resembling a museum visit. A windfall, we said. Or a senseless freedom concentrate.

Well-structured selection of rhythms, noises and melodies synthesized by the collective consciousness of two authors that were connected through the HTTP wires. Sampling is in their blood, whereas glitch for them is a well of wonderful inspiration. The final result of distant virtual interaction is a portable album of synthetic music of the third millennium.
