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.

Vague Seconde, the second album of Onde Poussière, documents the group’s evolution since their beginnings and their first album Silent Rain. Doedelzak now plays interconnected analog synthesiszers, and Kecap Tuyul has dropped the guitar and uses a “no-input mixer” with effects. Their improvisations are based on the creation of unstable situations in which some accidental sounds might happen at any time…

‘Two Chilean Blokes in the Soundhouse’ is Alejandro Albornoz and Mika Martini getting dark and dirty with sound in Studio 2, University of Sheffield Sound StudiosMay 2016, Sheffield, UK. With analogue synthesizers, contact microphones and digital processes rendered live, rough sound objects are hewn from all manner of sources leading to short tracks that challenge and delight at the same time.
Alejandro and Mika go way back so their improvisations are extremely respectful. Track durations vary according to materials and techniques used. Sometimes the analogue electronics are dominant; sometimes recordings of live instruments such as pianos play a major role with electronic sounds clothing the real in soft noise and bristling modulations. There’s a real sense of ‘performance’ which is sometimes hard to hear in improvised electronic music. This sensibility jostles nicely with the ‘hands on’ approach to their kit and sounds, and makes me return to various tracks for ‘another listen’.
Concluding the improvised music are two ‘reconstructions’ – an out of real-time re-consideration of their recorded improvisations. Immediately one hears an alternate approach to time. Real Time is no longer important; the ‘moment’ doesn’t matter; sounds are ordered, re-ordered, edited, and ordered again. The final two tracks are like paintings: sounds once free to roam are rounded up, fed, watered, (caged maybe) but framed to form a journey that neatly concludes an exciting collaboration and an excellent disc.

“Playing Standards Very Differently (Original Avant-Garde Solo Piano Improvisations)”
“Wings of an Angel continues to boldly explore new sonic territory and with this latest release, he does that with one instrument, the piano. He has taken some of the world’s most famous classical pieces, turned them inside out, added his own signature improvisatory style and created breath-taking works of spiraling psychedelia/Avant-Garde complexity which will lead you into dreams and visions you never thought possible.
His playing is expressive, emotive and yet he brings the classics into a new dimensional space with precision all the while, creating a playful atmosphere on an album you don’t want to miss.”
“As every Tuesday night falls in the city of Viña del Mar; Moraga, Arellano and Castro meet to play and record what happens. Based on a spirit of camaraderie, they turn on their synthesizers, drum machines, effects and computers and once again begin their exercises in creating amusing and amiable improvisations. From these extensive sessions, recorded according to the dogma of the trio -directly to a stereo track-, they extract the passages that constitute each one of the six tracks that compose ‘Se dice Misterioso‘ (Its called mysterious).
Published by the indispensable Pueblo Nuevo, this is the third work of Mr. & Oso, an ensemble in electronic format that with its creative exercises transports us to the most inspiring grounds of Intelligent techno and the Ambient of the 90s, where electronica was – and here still is – a space of personal discovery, and at the same time a point of spiritual communion.
Either accompanying the beginning or end of the day; as much in solitude as among friends; wandering along the coast or without getting up from our chair, Se dice misterioso may be enjoyed equally, becoming an excellent soundtrack for a journey in which physical displacement is not necessary, since it is concentrated enough on the present to take us as far as we please.
With smiles of complicity and satisfaction, Mr. & Osos end the session tonight. It will not be until next week when they meet again and return to their instruments to exchange musings in a musical key.”
