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.
“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.

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.
On this Various Artists compilation you can hear some vintage guitars produced in Eastern Block former countries, for example guitar brands like Jolana, Musima, Migma, Tonika, Ural, Mensfeld and many more!

The second album by the improvisatory duo Johannes Haase (Germany) and Óscar Santis (Chile), in this work we find two strokes, each one with a particular character and energy, music born from an ambient minimalism of high contrast based on the energy and sonority of each of them, together they create these sonorous images of highly oneiric and aquatic depth, that revoke the dunes, the sea, and the factories near Ritoque.
Trazo uno (Stroke one); of an aggressive character, contained and defragmented, the sonorities created by the electric violin of Haase are hidden between textures blurred by processes and loops, these at moments, contrasted by the electronics of Santis, overwhelming, from aleatoric rhythms and great sonic density, almost pixelated, together they create landscapes that are deconstructed and assembled in an organic way, creating textures of high spatiality.
Trazo dos (Stroke two); a deep and spacious texture, of aquatic time that is constructed of subtle gestures that coexist in a state of contemplation, the temporal absence that they generate immerses us in a very deep listening almost like daydreaming, a continuous variation that little by little comes and goes transforming and giving rise to this fragmented minimalism that brings us back to that which is human.
A disc where temporality and form are given through the organic needs of the moment, which takes us into subtle states of listening, where we can manage to enter the fine interwoven fabric and the decisions through which the music was tacken on, at the personal level, a work of brief landscaping with an occultist essence, two strokes that propose contrasting states from the same nature, listening and freedom.

Live Enhanced (#06/2017.5.18/ae7) features the full live show Thuoom played at Ambient Evening 7 in Parainen, Finland on May 18th, 2017. As usual for these evenings, Thuoom performed simultaneously with other artists but for this record, there’s no trace of other artists’ sounds. The sounds on this release have been processed to get a richer overall sound but the underlying performance has been left untouched.
Alongside the mp3s, there is a limited edition of physical CDR’s that will only be available at live shows.
Instrument used on this record: electroacoustic guitar.
