Natalia Kamia, Stewart Miller, and other invisible entities – We jammed on our little green aircraft

[Eg0_176]

Natalia Kamia, Stewart Miller, and other invisible entities

“We jammed on our little green aircraft”

We welcome back Natalia Kamia on eg0cide, a few years after her collaborative work Cluster with Ayato. This time she teamed up with Stewart Miller from USA Both of them have studied music in academic settings, but in order to expand the expressive potential of their crafts, they have turned to utilizing extended techniques for their main instruments – for Natalia the piano, for Stewart guitars – and using objects/processes that were probably never intended to be musical. All of the tracks from their album “We jammed on our little green aircraft” were compiled from recordings that they had passed back and forth through the internet.

The result of this collaboration is a fresh & intriguing work that deliberately ignores the traditional hierarchies between sounds and focuses on attending to their particularities, without trying to polish them too much. Stewart and Natalia are not afraid of collisions. Their music passes by the non-contradiction principle and the narrow conceptions of music as “harmony”; their sounds dance, float, slip, crash and start running again without following a precisely perceivable logic: you just have to accept them as they come & go. They form a dizzy, unstable world that is in the same time very material and completely unreal, sometimes joyously agitated, sometimes more restrained and plaintive. These tunes often keep some kind of twisted groove, as in some forms of free jazz.
I won’t pretend to know who or what the “other invisible entities” credited as co-creators of the album might be, but having listened to it several times I’ve realized that even goldfishes might learn to sing, and that plants need to pee sometimes. Maybe we just have to experiment with different ways of feeding pianos and guitars ? “Meow!” answered the swinging spoons…

Split Phase – Compendium

[nvr050]

Split Phase

“Compendium”

Time for a special and long overdue release here at noisyvagabond! For our 50th release we present a gigantic collection of tracks (43 to be exact for a total of 6 hours of music!) from Split Phase. Split Phase was a live electronic duo hailing from Upstate NY consisting of myself (c. ‘transient’ martin) and Mike McInotsh active for a period roughly through 2010-2014. For our live shows, we were joined by Nate Vanslyke on lights and visuals. I provided the musical backing via loopers and a plethora of synths and effect processors while Mike provided the rhythms via an acoustic and electronic drum kit. Split Phase was an attempt to make music in real time which generally was made with sequencers or computers and bring those types of sounds into an improvised live process. As such, the music lost some of it’s precision but gained much in the way of humanized passionate expression. Presented here is a small selection of the countless hours of recordings we amassed practicing and creating on a near daily basis. You will find an eclectic mix of genres ranging from jazz, funk, drum and bass, dub, techno, downtempo, and more as we were never interested in pigeonholing ourselves into any particular sound. I hope you can find something in this compendium that moves you. One day the fates will realigned and new Split Phase music will be churned out. Until then, ENJOY!

Acknowledgements: Thanks to Carmen Chiles for letting us include our remix of her track ‘Love is’ and Sarah Winton for providing vocals for ‘Compromise’.

Ölü Körpē – vol. 2 – Mira, la bruja no esta quemada

[WAC10]

Ölü Körpē

” vol. 2 – Mira, la bruja no esta quemada”

Ölü Körpē vol. 2 – Mira, la bruja no esta quemada

Track list:
1. My Lai, 1968
2. Yes, Vomit Comet.
3. Possibilities are Endless; Train Stations, Airports, Foreign Lands

So much had happened since my last collection of sounds. I decided to “embark” to new, unfriendly shores with drones, noises, and a bit of pseudo free-jazz. Not as melodic as “Travel,” I reckon, but no less fun.

As far as subject matter goes, “Mira, la bruja no esta quemada” (which means “look, the witch is unburnt” in english, by the way) rolls around things that can’t go away no matter how hard we wish them to disappear; maybe the mundane (desire to travel) or the somewhat heavy (massacre and cover-ups).

Please, do use headphones/headsets while listening to the tunes. There are some interesting movements there. Don’t forget to drink some water and watch the witch go unburnt.

[ACP 1108]

Awkward Geisha

“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.

Wings of an Angel – Playing Standards Very Differently (Original Avant​-​Garde Solo Piano Improvisations)

[Self Release]

Wings of an Angel

“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.”

“Intimate”

We are so happy to release another Lezet’s work on Etched Traumas.
Lezet is Igor Jovanovic and comes from Požega, Serbia. Lezet is an one-man experimental music project in 2005 and he has released more than 45 albums. “Someone’s comment about the sound of Lezet (Igor Jovanović) was ‘like Zorn without saxophone’…And indeed, Lezet’s work could remind the results of “the game theory”, which John Zorn exercised on his debut “Locus Solus”, for example…The fact that Lezet doesn’t use only live instruments will probably disconnect it from the avant garde free jazz scene, but I suppose the coming under some specific style wasn’t the intent in this case anyway. It’s about free experiments with sound captures in search for the surprises. And it can’t be pretentious as such…” (extract taken from the “Black Syrup” zine #2 (Serbia, 2007)).

Tha Silent Partner – Platters, Act 7: Tha Anniversary Plate

[BSOG0068]

Tha Silent Partner

“Platters, Act 7: Tha Anniversary Plate”

On December 24th, 2007, Gregory “Tha Silent Partner” Davis released the first volume in what would become an enduring series of music release that altogether has accumulated an incredible 100,000+ downloads. In our little Creative Commons licensed / Netlabel sphere of music, those kinds of numbers are hard to come by. If, as an artist, you’re getting numbers like that, you’re doing something right. Of course, TSP is. It’s difficult for a music producer to develop “a sound”, yet, that’s exactly what he’s done.

Act 7 continues the legacy with ten solid grooves for funkin’… or whatever… download… turn it on… bump it loud… enjoy.

Ever since I first heard Act 1 on Jamendo and decided to include “No Mas” on “netBloc Volume 11 (The Raw and the Cooked)”, it was clear to me that Tha Silent Partner was a music artist that I wanted to keep up with. I was later thrilled when he showed interest in having his music being released at blocSonic It’s been a pleasure and an honor to be able to help spread the word about TSP over the years! It’s also incredible that it’s already going on ten years since he kicked off Platters the Platters series. I look forward to the next ten. TSP, thank you, sir!

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
