Lluvia Acida – Zonas de Silencio

pn096

Lluvia Acida

“Zonas de Silencio”

“With Lluvia Ácida, we have been making music together for 20 years, always from the Chilean Patagonia. In the beginning, in a context absolutely dominated by Rock and folklore, we made music inspired by the bands that we liked, all European and born of urban and industrial environments. Over time we understood that we had our own environment to inspire us, one in which technology is implemented in wild and lonely places, creating a contrast that is increasingly scarce in our country and the world.

We consider ourselves Explorers, because many of our works exhibited the results of an adventure or an investigation. So it was with albums like, “Tierra de Espectros” (2002), “Antartikos” (2005), “La Idea – Canto a la Federación Obrera de Magallanes” (2007), “Kuluana” (2009) and “Insula in albis” (2013).

“Zonas de Silencio” (Zones of Silence)” is the result of one of these adventures. This consisted of moving the act of Composing and Recording an album and a film outside the comfort of the studio, carrying portable technology to remote locations and abandoned premises of our environment, specifically in the communes of Punta Arenas and San Gregorio. In successive outings between the months of January and May 2014, we managed to record improvisations in places as dissimilar and evocative as a volcanic crater, a steamer rusting on the banks of the Strait, an abandoned lighthouse, a small and little known ranch, the structure of an old fridge, a coal mine, a beautiful cinema closed for more than a decade and a closed hospital. It was our way of merging ourselves with the landscapes that we love, in the shadow of the remains that were left at the edge of the Road of the Magellanes Story.

With “Zonas de Silencio”, we feel that we have contributed another vision of our Frontier Society, one which doesn’t glorify anyone in particular. We are only Ourselves and our Machines, forming a closed circuit but sensitive to the vibrations emitted by the solitary places.”

Wings of an Angel – Excluded From The Ark

Self-Release

Wings of an Angel

“Excluded From The Ark”

This is a musical narrative about one peculiarly untamed outsider who remains unseen throughout his life, even though he himself strives to see all and everything, and thus excluded from the ark of humanity. This is also a story of human corruption, greed and uncontrolled urges – as seen and experienced firsthand by one John Doe who knows not how to fit into this boiling soup of basic human impulses. This is a top-notch moral and psychological dilemma: whether to be part of the human herd or not? Whether to go with the flow into the ark or to stay outside of it, paying the oft heavy price of ostracism? Not an easy choice… Certainly not.
Within the deep caves of our hearts, lies the horrible CONFORMIST ATTACHMENT ARTERY; attachment to who we think/feel we are, to our intrinsic nature as we and others perceive it, and to other objects (real and/or imaginary). This stops the blood flow of our untamed and wild essence. Thus, we become like lost sheep in the pasture, trying to compensate for this catastrophic gap our whole lives, by seeking void-like attachments – to supernatural forces such as Gods and their supposedly holier-than-thou “saints” who can temporary calm down our maniacal craving for breaking apart and self-destruction, to people who might make us feel less-lost-less-lonely-and-less-ostracized, to symbols and rituals which “allow and promote” artificial order in chaos, where there is none whatsoever etc’.
Such is the ark of humanity. And there’s a certain magic realism to this existential game of emotional shadows. But it also has a price, a heavy price at that, and you know what that price is… ‘Tis demanding fee… Is… Y.O.U… That is, giving up on YOUR very raw essence, in the pursuit of a comfortable place in the ark. Which means and suggests a constant battle for survival and infinite make-believe psychodramatic performances.
A moment of wishful thinking, on the other hand… Wouldn’t it be better to be excluded from this ramshackle ark, even if it means living a ghostly existence on the subterranean margins of the human microcosm?
Ponder these dilemmas whilst listening to this odyssey and I promise you this: THE DEFINITE ANSWER WILL MATERIALIZE IN FRONT OF YOUR HALF-CLOSED EYES…

About name “asthma
sufferer”:
Asthma (from the
Greek ἅσθμα, ásthma, “panting”) is a common chronic
inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and
recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction and
bronchospasm.[2] Common symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest
tightness, and shortness of breath.[3]
Asthma is thought to be
caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.[4] Its
diagnosis is usually based on the pattern of symptoms, response to
therapy over time and spirometry.[5] It is clinically classified
according to the frequency of symptoms, forced expiratory volume in
one second (FEV1), and peak expiratory flow rate.[6] Asthma may also
be classified as atopic (extrinsic) or non-atopic (intrinsic)[7]
where atopy refers to a predisposition toward developing type 1
hypersensitivity reactions.[8]

“From Ritual to Romance”

Et Quid Amabo Nisi Quod Aenigma Est?

Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, a blog founded on January 15 2009, and whose sixth anniversary is commemorated with this release, was envisioned as a space for the nurturing of a “savage thought” (that is, of an undisciplined nature). In its essence, and as an individual project, it aims mostly to be a vehicle for its author’s vast-reaching interests, while at the same time harnessing them into some form of discipline. More than just a reflection on the fascination caused by the themes implicit to its lexical field of action, as shown by the coordinates and key concepts that define the boundaries of its territory, i.e. “Occultism” / “Esotericism”, this virtual space mainly maps some of the topologies enclosed in the History of Ideas. A vast and sometimes ignored area of Knowledge, whose apparently paradoxical character drives a magnetic pull towards the need to identify its true nature, as ubiquitously manifested along various historical cycles, in an unending drama staged in the theatre of the Anima Mundi. This is, in fact, the true raison d’être of Die Elektrischen Vorspiele.
As a direct result of its existence, November 2010 saw the publication of the book “Summa Techno(i)logicae”. This work, as implied by its title, is a thoroughly compiled and systematised patchwork reflecting the interests that guide its author’s research. From then on, periodic collaborations with other projects ensued, such as the magazines Finis Mundi, Infernus and Antibothis.
Still under the aegis of Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, and always through the establishment of complicities and connections, a number of events were created and carried out in the past six years. This set of actions (with Music as a constant common denominator) has had as its main goal the evocation of the life and work of various figures that have left behind crucial legacies. The people celebrated include the musician John Balance (Coil); the historian of religions Mircea Eliade; the poet and theatre director Antonin Artaud; the philosopher Georges Bataille; and the Japanese writer Yukio Mishima. It is also worth mentioning the series of events spanning along the year 2013, Occult Esoterica AV Gatherings, curated in collaboration with intermedia artist Ana Carvalho.
The proposal made to EdP – Editora do Porto (in the person of its administrator, João Ricardo) for the release of this compilation emerges as a consequence of shared common cosmologies which have gradually been transmuted into friendship, and also of João Ricardo’s encyclopaedic musical knowledge, while the invitations made to the artists taking part in it are the logical result of a chaining together of elective affinities (a process permanently taking place since the first Homeric dawn).

Wings of an Angel – The Unearthly Demagogue And His Amber Of Sorrows

Self-Release

Wings of an Angel

“The Unearthly Demagogue And His Amber Of Sorrows”

When you remain alone for a long period of time, confined between four or more walls, but still confined nonetheless, an inner dialogue takes place inside you, thus the Unearthly Demagogue is born. Like in Fernando Pessoa’s psychobiography, many a personalities of varying stages of development, take over your psyche and engage in an everlasting psychoactive dialogue. As rich as this dialogue is and can be, you are nonetheless still locked between the prison walls of your own psychological limitations. This prison, in due time, becomes your safe haven; your very own Amber Of Sorrows, the very place you always escape to when the outside world threatens of annihilate your sense of self-identity.
This is however a Golden Cage. This world based upon interpersonal relationships, and for the most part, our spiritual/cultural development and progress take shape as a result of an interactive interaction with the world around us and its multitude of inhabitants, that is our fellow human beings. Consciousness is not an isolated solipsistic substance – it always expresses itself in a larger social framework and context. Therefore, as safe as your Amber of Sorrows might be, in order to keep moving and exploring new terrains, you must break free!
Slowly but surely, unleash the Unearthly Demagogue, with all the pain and longing it entails, to engage freely in the world, actively contribute and be contributed back, to love others platonically and romantically and be loved for who you are, a fragile multi-layered and vulnerable, all too vulnerable, human being.

LINER NOTES NOE’:
Immaginiamo per un momento un’orchestra timbricamente completa che suona senza direttive, senza partiture, senza determinazioni di alcun genere.
Così, giocando con la sensibilità dei singoli musicisti, nasce NOÈ (Nostra Orchestra Estemporanea).
È noto che l’improvvisazione si nutre delle incredibili connessioni etiche fra coloro che agiscono nell’esatto momento dell’agire.
L’ordinato riferimento estetico cui siamo abituati non conta; suonare nell’orchestra, o semplicemente ascoltarla, significa sospendere, almeno momentaneamente, ogni atteggiamento critico di carattere storico-letterario.
Forse pirati, altroché nipoti del diluvio, navigando in mari sconosciuti e terribili, in quel momento utile si riconosce l’entità di quel viaggio necessario a fissare l’essere, il divenire di questa musica in questa orchestra.
Le persone che ne fanno parte, lo sanno bene: NOÈ prosegue, semplicemente, la strada intrapresa da NED (Nostra Etichetta Discografica) verso l’indefinita ricerca dell’estemporaneità in musica e non soltanto.

Imagine for a moment a full orchestra timbre that rings with no guidelines, no scores, no determinations of any kind.
So, playing with the sensitivity of the individual musician, born ‘Our Extemporaneous Orchestra’.
And ‘well-known that this type of music is nourished by the incredible ethical connections between the musicians in the exact moment of noise.
The orderly aesthetic reference we used does not matter playing in this orchestra, or just listen, you stay, at least temporarily, any aesthetic judgment-mindedness and critical of any historical-literary.
Perhaps pirates, grandchildren of the flood, navigating in unknown seas and terrible, then useful to recognize the extent of the stops on the trip needed to produce this music in this orchestra.
People who are dedicated to do this, know this: NOE continues, simply, the road taken by NED to search indefinite extemporary music.

LINEAR NOTES OLEO:
Projeto que teve inicio em 23/ agosto/2014d.C
Idéia inicial do projeto era a intenção de usufruir da criatividade e improviso livre que visa em criar novos conceitos e sons(explorando o eletrônico e o orgânico).
Focando musica e artes, mesclando elementos à idéia surgiu.
Criou-se e desenvolveu-se em uma amplitude maior com mais cabeças pensantes, nova idéia de som e atitude.
O que ajudou em tudo isso foi esse tipo de “experimentalismo conceitual, musical” por isso esse projeto foi feito.
Algumas das faixas são de improviso no “flow” e de uma maneira bem despretensiosa, tão despretensiosa que ainda a espaço para novas “instrumentalizações” e participações… Pois o que conta é ultrapassar barreiras e criar novos ambientes e timbres.
(A transcendência).
Todo esse conceito, não seria possível sem o conceito:
“Faça você mesmo!”.
Pois tudo se gera disso o conceito de improvisação é principalmente a habilidade de, simultaneamente, produzir e interpretar, dentro ou não de parâmetros harmônicos ou rítmicos, melodias, ritmos ou vocalizações.

Project that started in 23 / August / 2014d.C
Initial idea of the project was intended to take advantage of free improvisation and creativity aimed at creating new concepts and sounds (exploring the electronic and organic).
Focusing on music and arts, blending elements to the idea arose.
It was created and developed on a larger scale with more talking heads, new idea of sound and attitude.
What helped in all this was that kind of “conceptual experimentalism, musical” so this project was done.
Some of the tracks are improvised on the “flow” and a very unassuming, unpretentious way so that even the space for new “instrumentalist” and shares… What matters is to overcome barriers and create new environments and sounds.
(Transcendence).
This whole concept would not be possible without the concept:
“Do it yourself”.
For everything that generates the concept of improvisation is mainly the ability to simultaneously produce and interpret within or without harmonic or rhythmic parameters, melodies, rhythms and vocalizations.

C. Reider – Not Subliminal

“Not Subliminal”

“Not Subliminal” has just been released on the Control Valve netlabel. There is no direct link to the album, due to the way the netlabel is structured. You need to visit http://controlvalve.net and click the photo to get to the download page.


The netlabel’s succinct description of the work is “cassette experiments”. Pretty accurate.

I experimented a lot with cassette players & cassettes this Summer. Further releases will document the full extent of the results of these experiments. This particular set of recordings is primarily improvisations with multiple handheld tape recorders and players. I scavenged a bunch of these and a bunch of tapes from thrift stores this Summer. Much of the process involved recording some stuff onto one tape while playing back previously recorded stuff on the other tape players, and letting it all mix together out loud… recording everything onto the shitty little onboard microphones that these handheld tape recorders had. The sounds I recorded mingled together with environmental sounds and got grittier and more lo-fi as continually overdubbed. Some results were extremely distorted, others just muffled and gritty.

One exception to the method used on most of this album is “Gala Video ’94”. In that track, I took a found video cassette and cut strips out of the tape down to 1/8″ so that they could play on a standard cassette player. You can hear the video data as audio in this track, and on occasion the audio soundtrack cuts in. When I sliced the video tape I tried to do it in a curving way so that different areas of the 1/2″ wide video tape would be exposed to the 1/8″ player head as the tape advanced. This explains the changing nature of the track as it progresses.

So, a lot of what I released this year might be described as “pretty”, or “approachable”… this release can’t really be described that way, but I think it’s really interesting to listen to. I hope you will too.

Wings of an Angel – Your Dominatrix Had A Brain Transplant Under My Knives

Self-Release

Wings of an Angel

“Your Dominatrix Had A Brain Transplant Under My Knives”

Humor is an essential and reoccurring leitmotif in my life. Without the ability to laugh out loud about the absurdity of human behavior and of nature’s macabre mirages, life could easily become a heavy burden. In my eyes, humorless people are like zombies. How can one go about without noticing the fantastically grotesque moments that surround us all?
This album explores the theme of quintessential black humor in a rather light mood. It addresses the fact that for many, life is an experimental BDSM film without a script. This is an improvisational soundtrack that in my perception complements such a vision.
From all the arts (cinema, music, literature, poetry, painting etc’) to politics, education, work and every other aspect of civilian life – people take everything so darn seriously, as if their lives depend on it…
Most people are absolutely sure that this little world resolves around them, therefore, unable to see the larger perspective; ala that we’re here so very temporally, and instead of conducting ourselves within the limited perspectives and safety cages that society pushes us into – we have to go out of our minds, to think profoundly and sincerely outside the box and to feel without the primordial fear of being labeled as weirdos and stigmatized!
