“An album you can taste listening after listening” NetMusic Life
“An interesting and pleasing album” iThink magazine
Nylon and Turtle was recorded after that, while he was watching jazz pianist Brad Mehldau, Sergi boal, guitarist and composer, had a revelation: the necessity to create his own music. This necessity led him few months later to record this CD. There are 9 songs, most of them recorded in one or two takes, so it’s almost a live recording. It is an organic and intimate album, in which the guitarist tries to make a little travel. As in Ice Voice, where it can be appreciated the Nordic influences of Jose Gonzalez, or Yorke, where we can hear echoes of Radiohead. Fukushima is a tribute to the victims of the tsunami in Japan, in where it mixes anger and calm; The incident of the Bell features great tecnique and sounds with a mixture of pop and grunge music, all with the same nylon guitar. In Frontera, the flamenco sounds in his fingers, and take us to Orecchio di Dioniso, and then we get carried away through the last song of the album, “Is anybody out there?”, a composition that borrows the title from Pink Floyd, ending with a question. This album is the starting point of this guitarrist of Barcelona, who decided one day to make his own music with the guitar. Sit back and listen … is anybody out there?
(this album is a joint release with the No-source netlabel)

„Paspreture” is a kind of an inner journey based on the music I was composing and recording in the last 10 years – music that was made in my past, that led me to my future, which became my present in all senses.. I made a choice of these 8 particular songs that represent my musical paths the best way. They are not sorted chronologically, but emotionally, with a special attention to atmosphere they possess..
yosoyunotrotu new effort is a collaboration of three artists: quetzal contla |mexico| & krzysztof polaczenko |poland| & manuel escamilla |mexico|. this time project was inspired by the supernatural, strange activities of world and human. again music was made by showing no boundaries. every track is a story with different mood and genere. concept of each song was modified by all project members, trio fully worked on a whole album. we hope to invite more and more artists to next project works.
Hermes’ Labyrinth is a series of improvised duets for double bass, prepared and unprepared, and winds recorded live in the studio in the autumn of 2008. Each piece takes as its theme a scale, tone row, textural motif, or verbal suggestion, and develops it as it will—as sound finding its natural level within sound and silence.
Daniel Barbiero double bass. Jimmy Ghaphery alto sax; tenor sax; wooden flutes.
“Ayana is definitely your most esoteric work to date, but is also highly concise In its reflection of your influences and ideas. I don’t think anyone, anywhere, manages to cohesively entwine free jazz and Middle Eastern sounds in a beautiful way as you do! Your art expands the definitions of music, let alone the confines of electronic and sample-based music…”
“When talking about music with people, for saying things like “this beat is taken from …” i often get replys like: “yeah maybe, but i like it anyways.” If there wouldn’t be these “but, anyways” i’d be fine with it. We’re all stuck in the 18th century mentally. In the Middle Ages “componere” still had the original meaning of “to enclose”. It was taken for granted to derive new chorales from older ones. Usually parts of such compounds were composed but not completely new works. Whole works were crafted (=facere) which is a facile idea of mechanic humility, something we should care about.”
The Plastic Jazz Orchestra was formed by Bernd Burnson in late 2006 as an ensemble electronique for modern music. Tragically Bernd Burnson passed away in summer 2007 and left behind a bunch of young people determined to create something completely different, something new in terms of musical expression. So the tracks from ’39°’ by The Plastic Jazz Orchestra had never been compositions in their origins but handcrafted pieces of what we call music.
A lot of Fature’s fifth album pays tribute to the pioneers of the West London and Broken Beat music scene and is heavily influenced by artists like Domu, 4Hero and Mr Scruff. “Bad Form” takes on a more stylistic and jazzy approach to his previous albums but also has sprinkles of Ambient and Drum ‘n Bass to exhibit his many talents.
Its rustling. Dripping. Playing. It makes zzz.
Moving in lines. Sounds are traveling. Hopefully melancholy.
It seems to be always the same persons, which are fighting in mind. Keeping Silence. A prospecting of Sound?
Views are floating, its still a Trial. Elusive.
A Saxophon tells us. And Trains. And a Piano… which could never decide!
If there is a possibility of listening waves beating? Or do they rythm the beat?
Martin Rach returns to EdP to release a work by his imaginary electro/atonal/noise/jazz/big/computer band.
Ancient Greek Dionysias (parties in homage to Dionysus, god of grape harvest and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy) with all their celebration of Spring, phallus, music, wine, bread, earth and theater, inspired what could be a ghostly arrival of something that’s no longer here…
“Rhythms Of Life” is an experimental/avant-garde jazz album written in notation/electronic sheet music, similar in style to the Synclavier work of Frank Zappa.
As Jared describes it: “The Theme of “Rhythms Of Life” is a perspective of my life over the last year and expresses the dynamics, emotions and experiences of family issues, foreseeing future events, reminiscing of great times, traps and schemes of work/job, asking for a miracle to save a loved ones life, having some one you love deeply pass away, when life is moving in a good rhythm, the patterns of day to day life, and the needing to re-find a cohesive bond in a long term relationship.”
“Nada es para todos” use the same procedures than my prior “orchestral albums” : piling up layers of overdubbed lines that I composed in real time as I play all the instrument with the spontaneus interaction tipically found in free jazz, without any prevous ideas about the melodies, rhythms, harmonies, styles, etc… The only exception is track 3 which is a collage of a melodica track cut in 3 parts and stack up like a fake counterpoint in the Frank Zappa’s xenocronicity style.” Claudio Nunez
the first pyr release of 2012 is from tomas gris a free improviser based in madrid who is working on developing a sound language that combines his love of dada, art brut, and the cobra art movement with his interest in philosophy, semiotics and post-modernism. he performs alone and with ad hoc ensembles primarily playing reeds and amplified objects, but also incorporating various percussion and acoustic instruments into his pieces.
his first album for pan y rosas is a solo improvisation recorded in 2011 in which he plays alto saxophone, harps, cassette, and objects. throughout the piece he employs quietness and stillness; flutters, pops and breaths; cymbals and tones. his playing is deliberate and of the moment, without beginning or end. make sure to get it here.
