z(xW+yV) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear. After some tries with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier he developped a modular system on this basis, in order to generate not only feedback, but also feedback of feedback, and feedback of feedback of feedback (…) by chaining amps and microphones in a circular way that blurs more and more the distinction between sound source and sound’s reproduction, between acoustic musical instruments and electronic sound diffusion.
Unlike its first album 3×2(1W+18V) whose 3 pieces where mixes of 2 improvisations, Trois Prises features only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers). Track 1 & 3 contain no edits, track 2 was edited from a longer improvisation.
Sturm und Drang is a greatly improved and expanded Storm and Urge, originally released on Vulpiano back in 2011. Awash with noise but still so sweet, and perhaps one of the warmest, coziest releases LKOY’s discography.
Words from the artist:
“Marking a start to the singer-songwriter transition, I went away from sequencing synths and into learning how to sing. It was ultimately influenced by relationships and usually from the perspective of ‘me to you’, but its turn-around was that I always sang them to myself. Despite drowning most lyrics in delay and noise, it only mattered if I knew what they were. This was my practice of reminders and rewiring.
There’s always been recordings from each cycle that sang and latched onto other people, giving reason into sharing the music at all, but that did eventually mutate why I liked to record. Once anyone else heard my voice, it wasn’t really mine anymore.”
Shoves turn to punches when DK DANCE release their 4th for D-TRASH. The band are in top form, churning out black metal riff-driven industrial punk, consistent with all their previous material – But don’t let that consistency put you at ease… DK DANCE become more lethal and explosive with every song, let alone this brand new full length. Enjoy… but don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Laura Cavan is a french visual artist who also works with sounds, and especially natural ones like in her first album Unsuspicious. This project started in 2016 when Laura Cavan was studying arts in Marseille and created an installation using pieces of wood found in the area of her school (which is located close to a forest). The insertion of contact microphones in these pieces of woods allowed to transmit small vibrations emitted by its inhabitants : termites. The resulting sounds were sent in real time through headphones for the installation’s visitors.
Early 2019, some of these sounds have been selected, edited and mixed by Kecap Tuyul in for the realisation of this album. Different, light treatments (mostly equalization) have been applied to the orginal tracks, without trying to hide the recorder’s hiss nor other unwanted sounds, but rather with the aim of letting appear all aspects of the recordings in an organic way. The results don’t pretend to give an accurate reproduction of termit’s sound but should rather be considered like sound pieces where the recording technology is a part of the material and not a transparent medium. As a sequel of this release, Kecap Tuyul is currently working on tracks mixing electronic sounds with Laura Cavan’s recordings.
The artwork is made of a selection of Laura Cavan’s drawings of these wood pieces which that were created for her installation.
JKP’s chiptune releases between 2005 and 2010 had a strong influence on how 20kbps and lobit was perceived in that era and it also affected how I looked at my label.
Nine years later, it’s a different world. A different netaudio scene. And of course, 20kbps has changed as well. Nosthalgia is big, everything is retro. JKP takes it some steps further with a short EP dedicated to Film Noir. The four tracks use samples from four movies: Impact, He Walked By Night, Plan 9 From Outer Space and Manos: The Hands Of Fate. Only the first two are Film Noir, the other two are Horror B Movies. Being a cinephile I’ve seen them all, in the period when JKP was first releasing here. You see, everything is connected.
z(xW+yW) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear : for instance with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier. It was initially thought as lo-fi version of the “Failure Circle” project work with chaotic feedback system of the no-input mixer in a more portable way, but finally took a quite different direction, with a more tactile & acoustic dimension.
3×2(1W+18V) is the first published album of this project. It was recorded in june 2018 with lo-fi means (cell phone and a cheap digital recorder). Each track is a mix of two improvisations played with the most primitive form of z(xW+yV) : one contact microphone, one 1W battery-powered amplifier and two guitar effects (overdrive and equalization).
M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul)’s second album « 11 songs » is made of selected and edited improvisations recorded during the “M.A.K.T. Sono (sans sono)” residency at Le Magasin – Laboratoire de permanence chorégraphique (Mathieu Heyraud) – Saint-Etienne – November 4-9 2018.
Since their beginnings in February 2018 the duo has been working with modular set-ups that are likely to provoke unstable situations (like the soundbox, analog synthesizer and no-input mixer used in their first album “If you were a clarinet”). This time they played with microphones, voices, analog synthesizers, and small battery-powered amplifiers, forming a modular set-up whose elements can be interconnected in various ways. They also experimented the integration of some song-material in their improvisations.

“The perfect failure (?) vol. 6 : Imperfect failures”
Even bad things come to an end! This is the 6th and last volume of the perfect failure (?) / l’échec parfait (?). I must admit I failed to find any real or perfect failure among all the sounds submitted. Each of them inspired me for building interesting sound blocks, imagining new composition tactics, blurring the distinction between what I can find “good” or “bad” – although I won’t deny that many of these sounds were somehow headache-inducing when played on repeat while working on this 5 hours long mix. Will you love-hate all these “Imperfect failures” as much as I did while patiently gathering them during 7 years?
Many thanks to all the contributors who trusted me enough to send their secret / questionable material : 3/2, A.D. du nord, Ayato, Benoît Rouits, Charles premier, Cocotte Sapiens, David Pomlait, Doedelzak, Extrasystole, Gavin Prior, Half Evidence, Hellsings, Janne Nummela, Jules Valentin, The Kiriks, Luxalove, M.A.K.T. Sono, Mata-Hari, Natalia Kamia, Onde Poussière, Philippe Desclais, psph.S, Siu, tay_ploops, Torbill, Xavier Mussat, XtetX Ensemble, Yoshiwaku, 3HNT– and some anonymous people. I shamelessly contributed to this with some of the worst recordings of my solo projects Kecap Tuyul and Failure Circle.
The Two Thousand Eighties is a collection of song created between 2016 and 2018 by Demonic Sweaters. They range from ambient, chiptunes, experimental, rock, pop, and features live drums on several tracks, and plenty of synths.
Tay_ploops is a solo project of multidisciplinary Canadian artist (painter, performer, puppeteer, musician) Jessica Gabriel. She initially conceived Ta_rot as a concept album of sad experimental songs to be released on 30 november 2018, for the international remembrance day for lost species.
Unexpected events of the cycle of life and death intervened in the genesis of this project and delayed it several times- but the wheel continues to turn and we are glad to finally to share this touching sonic testimony created with fragile materials.ta_rot is sound collage born from death
…the moon…..the wheel of time…
gone again end again
love to shell
Ayato & Naoki Ishida have been working together via file exchange since the early 2010s. 3 years after their album “Red_control rec.played” , they offer us a split album recorded between 2015 and 2016 : Tapes Outtakes. Here, as the title suggests, the 2 artists have both worked with magnetic tapes. Ayato has used an old Revox reel-to-reel tape player to create evolving loops of various instruments, while Naoki Ishida has used other (undisclosed) methods and material. Two ways to use the tape as an instrument and tool for experimental composition.
