Winter is coming slowly. The sorrow penetrates through the window of a house lit by a faint sun. The bells ring out far. A woman sings her dreams of escape, while a man turns around a square seeking for his desappeared love. The snow fall down insistently. Voices chant litany to celebrate the end of life. noises interfere with the rarefied melodies of a piano that tries to draw landscapes of purity. With the cold, innocence seems to have to die. Yet in a courtyard, the children resist winter by playing under the cold eyes of adults, and here and there, little birds survive in the snow.
“Alea iacta est, luck or chance, may well be the ideas navigated by the musical work of Aiggom Gaudium (pseudonym Sebastian Moggia), in his first publication in Pueblo Nuevo, who does justice to the name of this EP in a way that is mysterious and almost cryptic.
Translated into English, the title of the album means ‘the luck is cast’, probably in reference to the artistic courage of trying to control the uncontrollable through music. The development, a mixture between the past and that which ensues through time, are shown here in an amalgam of references through which the author moves -and has moved before-, comfortably, as much in the mixture of styles with denomination of origin, as in the resulting sonorities and a musicality of neat technical style.
Links with the ambient, tints of arrangements with origins in traditional instrumental music, abundant in thick beds, classical pianos and electronic sequences, real or simulated violins and jazzy drums, these make up this group of four compositions with kind and sometimes melancholic melodies, they provide glimpses of finely intertwined electronic treatments; they are sonic layers that advance in atmospheres and unimagined landscapes, that through multiple listens necessarily evoke a different time, as if Aiggom Gaudium had tempted luck, taking it by the horns and submitting it to his musical will.”

“From Viña arrives to Pueblo Nuevo the interesting project Aiggom Gaudium, the intellectual property of the musician and producer Sebastián Moggia, whose name has been hitherto unknown in the small world of electronic music, and who makes his official debut with this collection of 4 tracks entitled ‘Alea Iacta Est’.
Sebastian, as he himself has defined it, travels in this EP through past lives in different personal projects and styles, as much within electronic music and outside it, including techno, house, psytrance, drum & bass, chill-out, jazz and classical music. In this work he constructs with delicate electronic and acoustic elements musical passages of an instrumental nature that ignite in distinct moments, and with varied textures, the omnipresent and conceptual darkness of the author.
We move here through different scenes and sensibilities in an environment that is dark, but developed with “plot and drama”, with an emphasis on the subtlety of well-produced and mixed synthetic sounds, orchestrated environments, dancing to the sound of good beats and percussion loops. Sebastian here presents stories, with developments and a kind of script with distinct scenes in a single musical tour, as in his beautiful track ‘I’m Late’, which delights with its pianos, synthesizers and voices processed through a path with different nuances and breaks.
‘Canto en Púrpura (Song in Purple)’ is another mysterious story of the composer, with good rhythmic movement from electronic and real drum loops, a bit like Massive Attack on their Mezzanine album, which holds warm touches of synthesized pads. An almost cinematic view of a desolate landscape, but exciting to contemplate.
Completing this work are the pieces ‘Quasi una Fantasía’ and ‘Cycling’, which comprise a more intense rhythmic attunement, coated with processed analog sounds, acoustic pianos and voices from a heartfelt, ceremonial, and distant song, as in a revealing dream. As the composer tells us in his title, ‘The luck is cast’, because on a personal level this adventurous soloist has started on the right foot, and I wish him the best in his creation and new pathways. Enjoy.”

“Walt Thisney selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same quantities that emerges from encounters between the past and the present, drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life again, so to produce the same effect of the original freshness and spontaneity, a mirror that transforms it absorbs and reflects.”
The music of Walt Thisney is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths.
Stillborn Blues‘ 3rd album (originally released on cd-r in 2010) has the same old typical style : plaintive melancholy, detuned guitars, lo-fi recording, awkward playing muffled by the abuse of reverb and delay – all the ingredients for a low-profile soundtrack for lazy dreamers and restless losers in need of a pretext for spending the day watching the ceiling. Now that the music is on you can close the curtains and go back in your bed.

These tracks were originally released through Naviar label on their Haiku collections. www.naviarrecords.comDiscordian Zen centres on the Rite of Not Knowing as its basic manifestation.
Performing the Rite of Not Knowing we enter into the realms of don’t know mind. Letting go of our time and opinions, doing what appears, we become more flexible, less attached. Discordian Zen represents a new Zen manifestation. While the Rite of Not Knowing represents Discordian Zen’s primary practice (open to anyone), there exist additional practices/manifestations. These include.
Discordian Zen has no temples, no location, no tax exempt status. It only seeks to manifest, transmit and expand the life-giving Chaos that constitutes our original nature, our original enlightenment.
Dominic Razlaff (aka DR) is an ambient musician from Braunschweig, Germany. Interested in making music since 2007 he bought his first synthesizer (Novation Xio) in 2009. Currently he uses classic subtractive synthesis, granular synthesis, field recordings and tape loops to create evolving, melancholy ambient/drone soundscapes.
“After 2 years since the award-winning debut album “Todo no es Todo”, the audio-visual collective C/VVV is once again
sending out signals with this EP called “Miniatura + remixes”, as a preview of a future album in constant evolution.The group recorded this track at the end of 2016 in a session entirely improvised and characterized by friendly musical
dialogue between its founders Mika Martini and Pablo Flores, before the latter moved to Rome, Italy. Later, that recording
was complemented by the sonic input of the person writing this review (Francisco Pinto), with contributions to this new
exploration that follow emotional and playful pathways.
The mission in this project is simple and without much pretense. This adventure combines different sounds and small details
built with almost 100% analog technology, featuring sound miniatures and dancing timbres that together reveal nostalgic
landscapes through a contemporary interpretive perspective. The auditory encounter nourishes the ears with these
micro-sounds, synthetic textures, while, at the same time, permeating the contemplative state of its creators in those
sessions produced previously.
Distinct authors from the national electronic scene construct / deconstruct this new work, with their distinct perspectives
and remix contributions: “Unknown Dancer” with a random re-mixing of the same ingredients that reveals surprising results;
René Roco adding mystery, surrealism and complexity to his version; “co-dec” moving towards the most rhythmic approach,
providing new synthetic sounds but without losing the details; and ending with “android” with a very successful, danceable and
elegant transformation of this miniature. Finally, we cannot fail to mention the contribution of Iñaki Muñoz for the cover of the
EP, who always surprises us with the expressive power of his visuals in the concerts of C/VVV.
We continue to prepare ourselves for a new adventure in a random universe, which inspires us from time to time, bringing us
together and surprising us, even in spite of the distances.
Wish us good luck and good harvest.”

How strong did we miss you.
Will you be there?After a final winter stupor we gaze into the rays of closer photons and see Matti T’s latest color expressions, in both his visual artwork and also four new tracks he brings to us. New in style is a more dancefloor like track whose musical direction we already could feel in the Teppana release, a group in which Matti T is a member in. The trance like positive vibes guide us into an ambivalent beauty of a strong electronica track. Sunbeams will increase the spirit and the final track will guide you into another realm, moving and somehow rocking. Dance in the easy chair, with a bittersweet taste of love, loss and hope, amidst a space opera.
Powels Lumski‘s first EP “See_Shades” has the DNA of the classic ambient to down-tempo vibe. The four tracks slowly rolls the waves loaded with bass frequencies, glitches and artifacts to create some gritty mysterious reliefs to the journey.

Sentimental Value is a record of which we fell in love from the beginning, with its particular feeling, its tranquility and its power, its making you travel gently. Everything is explained below by its author
I first started playing music back in 2014 when i was 16 as a drummer in a local Melodic Death Metal band. After going over 2 years with my band, i’ve decided to quit and start doing more projects on my own. I started a Grindcore band and joined several other bands/projects from Sherbrooke, going from Skate Punk to Rap, Black Metal and Screamo. After a year or so, I’ve decided to take a break from the local underground scene to start focusing more on my solo projects.
I first started experiencing with several softwares and analog equipement, but quickly went full on with DAWs, as i felt that i wanted to make music with the bare minimum equipement, due to, mostly, lack of space and money. I now work with FL Studio, Cubase 5 and Protools 12. The only hardware that i use is a 25 keys AKAI MIDI keyboard, a Behringer Xenyx 1002fx mixing board and a Novation Launchpad.
Sentimental Value as been composed between July 2017 and Febuary 2018. The title kinda speaks for itself, because every song as been written in connection with a very specific moment in my life. I really wanted to recreate and embody the mood and the atmosphere of these moments and shape it into music. I think is the closest way anybody could ever re-experience them. Sit back, put on your best pair of headphone and let yourself float into this mellow little journey.
