TERR110: Boreal soundscape collage accompanied by the lull of balmy guitar. Seamless loop recorded over a week-long residency in Inari, Finland.
“I took part in a media workshop group’s travel to Inari, bringing together different artistic visions in order to gather a multimedia report of the Northern seasonal foliage, and ultimately organize a collective art exhibition. The residency was in a cabin beside Nukkumajoki river and my project in the group was to record the journey photographically and acoustically.
I was mesmerized by Inari’s fjelds, lakes and aurora-filled nights, the pristine flora surrounding Nellim near the Russian border and one particularly important place of interest was Siida Museum; a rich crash course on the indigenous Sámi culture, history and the seriously endangered Inari-Sámi language. To this day, Sámi people keep facing systematic discrimination in many aspects.
The loan word “Kaamos” doesn’t have a literal translation in English despite its unmissable significance in our culture. It could be split into two contexts: firstly the near literal translation “polar night” implying the geographical lack of sunrise, and secondly an associated mental state as a consequence: winter depression. The bane of northeners.
Post-trip, I recorded guitar to fit the field recording collage for a seamless audio installation loop as part of our touring mixed media art exhibition of the same name. The opening in December was at our workshop Vimma, with Turku Main Library to follow later in spring.”
This is a recording of a soundwalk observed from a first person’s point of listening. As all sound recordings do, this soundwalk recording presents what the specific one person hears when she went on a particuar walk. The unusual feature of this work as a soundwalk recording is that it also provides an insight to the thoughts that occur to her while she is on the walk, rendered as a voice letter to an unidentified acquaintance. This reveals personal stories and memories related to the places she visits as part of the soundwalk.

Natalia Panzer lives in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. She helps run Lynn, Looking at your mint, and Refresh Gallery. “Subway Street and Other Public Music Vol. 3” is the third installment of a series of the series “Street, Subway, and Other Public Music”, where she record street musicians and other public music and sound around New York City. This is the first time she is performing as a “street musician”. Her performance was held at a park by my house called Bush Terminal Park. The last recording of the flute player she made in Chinatown in Manhattan.
InO is the acronym for “Interpenetration and non-Obstruction”, one of the principles that John Cage used to create music that was anarchic (against the structures of most of musical traditions) and in the same time encouraging new possibilities of coexistence. Magali Albespy, a french artist rooted in dance and performance, took inspiration from this for a methodology of real time composition dance practice focused on sound. “2017/2018” is made of excerpts of the sessions recorded during the first year of these weekly events.
These recordings can be considered as documents of this practice. Indeed they are such documents, especially for people who were involved in the sessions. But we think that they also have a fragile and surprising beauty of their own that deserve an independent life for your listening. This unexpected musicality has been discreetly stressed by the editing choices, which we can consider like a delicate work of “a posteriori composition”, a work made with respect for the uniqueness of each sound event and their kind of abstract narrative power. That’s why we hope that you will enjoy these atypical works.
Recorded and edited by Magali Albespy.

For its 38th release, Da ! Heard It Records changes your grey matter into black matter.
Just like the too-strong coffee that brings us to work each morning, this cassette album has the dark and bitter taste of a hopeless routine.
With this collection of vague loops whose high unstable notes bring back to the surface daily uncertainties, the Pleurs Magnétiques (“magnetic cries”) of this beverage has the listener drift far away from restorative sleep.
Dented, used, rickety, these rehashed snippets of existence crash into sunless beaches of sound.
In the background, the continuous breath that animates them sometimes gives a glimpse of its author’s, Bernard Grancher.
After pulling out of the forgotten pile the magnetic tapes of a hundred old pieces from the nineties with his stooge, Emmanuel Lautreamont, the Rouen-born tried his hand here at an original exercise in style.
Using the 4 track as an actual instrument, he plays with various effects to denature this initial material.
Between sonorous poetry and industrial music, the result shows an unpublished side of his work, all the while staying close to his habitual obsessions. The accompanying illustration, signed Nicolas Nadé, seems to be just as loyal to this pessimistic vision of our era.
Whether you are familiar with his surrealist pop synth released on Ego Twister and Gonzaï or simply intrigued by obscure atmospheres, you are sure to give in to this little black coffee…Pleurs Magnétiques, the 38th release of Da !

Between the years 1620 and 1636, Peter Paul Rubens created, without the prompting of any commission, his Landscape with Philemon and Baucis. He kept working on this image throughout his life. The painting tells the story of Philemon and Baucis as Ovid presented it in his Metamorphoses. In Ovid’s narrative, an old married couple receives a surprise visit from the gods Jupiter and Mercury, disguised as weary travelers who cannot find a place to spend the night. The old couple does not judge these travelers or question where they are from; they simply offer them kindness and hospitality. The two gods offer the couple a gift expressing their gratitude: they spare their lives when, the next day, a great flood comes crashing over the land.
In the painting, only a small group of figures makes reference to this fable. The main theme of the piece is the unpredictability of nature with its untamed, uncontrolled power: lightning and thunder, rain and storms, a cow screaming as its life ends within a torrent, a mother desperately trying to rescue her baby. This is an apocalyptic catastrophe of unimaginable proportions. And yet, Rubens included a hopeful sign in this image: in the lower left-hand corner of the tableau, you can see a rainbow…
“Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,” sang Judy Garland in the well-loved film The Wizard of Oz (1939), a song promising hope and a wonderful world far from the darkness and ominous threats of the Second World War.
This image has much to tell us in our contemporary lives, as our current reality includes events such as the refugee crisis, global warming, and the threat of nuclear disaster. It acts as both a warning and a sign of hope.
For the theatre project Ganymed Nature, composer Karlheinz Essl worked extensively with Rubens’ Landscape with Philemon and Baucis, creating an immersive soundscape to reflect this painting. This sound work is based on algorithmically generated soundscapes taken from weather and other natural phenomena: the forest and the wind, a stream that swells and overflows, thunder and lightning. We also hear sounds that refer to human activity: rustling steps through foliage that turn into the ringing of high heels, in which a woman stalks on asphalt. And then there are signaling sounds: a firebell extends into an unending tolling that spins onward into infinity.
The poetry of the rainbow overarches everything; the promise of salvation, a glimmer of hope. To express this, Essl worked with an a-capella-choir to create chord structures which he then recorded and electronically transformed. The highlighted melodic fragments are reminiscent of the famous rainbow song yet appear in a peculiar harmonic disguise which let you sense the atmospheres of other planets.
Field recordings processed using granular synthesis, time scaling and various other methods.

This time Circuitnoise explores the coronal loops of the sun. The magnetic flux within the solar body gets twisted and mangled and create these giant loops. These loops of fire are emitting electromagnetic pulses, which could be recorded by radio telescopes all over the world.
On the search for new sounds Circuitnoise uses the electromagnetic sounds of the sun and combine them with electromagnetic fieldrecordings from earth to a dark, rumbling and screaming sound collage.
The coronal loops of noise is a trilogy consisting of the recordings matter, fusion and core.

Newest in the series of Toni Dimitrov’s collaborations is the album with the German artist Dominic Razlaff AKA DR. “Braunschweig Sessions” is the result from this collaboration, showing in front of the listener the infamous soundscapes of long form drone explorations of which DR is known for, merged with the subtle affection for field recordings infused ambience characteristic for Toni Dimitrov. Field recordings were provided by Toni Dimitrov, which are afterwards processed by DR, or layered with processed (granular synthesis) Ukulele and Synthesizer, arranged by both artists. Recorded on various destinations around Macedonian nature, this material is a reflection of a nice, subtle, calm and peaceful journey. With its ranges and spectrum from more subtle soundscapes to rawer and at times even unnerving sound experiments, this work is a direct presentation of the works of both artists, now connected in joint work. This is the first in the forthcoming series of collaborative works by these two prolific soundscape designers.
Mason is the new project from Abe Mason (Thirteen Fingers, Church of the Tin Vagabond) Harsh Cut-ups, industrial ambiance and field recordings are utilized to create a project that is personal, evocative and dynamic. Inspired by Purgist, Facialmess, Kuzuma Kubota, Kazumoto Endo, Chris Goudreau, Harness, Developer, Enephalophonic and Constrain.
In attempt to connect deeply with nature Gilman Mom’s newly-released album, Revisionist History, is immersed in atmospheric field recordings and jazz-inspired drone. The album looks to delve into the embrace of a warm, youthful summer’s day and perhaps explore what mental state endured by such an environment.
Zeekat does this, because it’s a fairly cheap hobby that doesn’t require going out often. Project was started when enough musical equipment was collected allowing to engage in an activity that won’t ruin the eyesight. Influences include Ozric Tentacles, Porcupine Tree, Boards of Canada, The Orb and some low key existential dread.
