after a 3-year hiatus, the cover version duo SMAV is back to release their 3rd and last song on their 1st and last EP. 13min of homemade music, with personal favourites and a bonus mashup. but there’s nothing to fear: Rodrigo Socialmedia and Cairo Audiovisual keep on making new music, together and individually, as Mildmilk and Cairo Braga. a toast from here to the future! RIP SMAV.
Even though they live on continents around the world from each other and have never even talked, Boson Spin (Stan Magendanz from Brisbane, Australia) and Glenn Sogge (Illinois, USA) have managed to forge a strong collaborative connection. With many dozens of tracks under their belts — ambient, experimental, dark ambient, and poetry-inspired challenges like the Naviar Records Haiku and Renku ones — they have developed a working relationship that fits like a glove even when it goes in unexpected directions.
“Thoughts Becoming (Other) Things” grew out of the beginning tracks from Boson Spin (a series titled “Thoughts Becoming Things’ that Sogge (without warning) then embellished. As the series continued, it became like a game of chess. Who was going to be surprised or challenged by the next file crossing the aether?
Today we are proud to announce the latest Daniel Robert Lahey release on The Cerebral Audio Netlabel: Not Sure This Goes With Your Outfit. On his third full release with CerebralAudio Daniel maintains the excellence of his music with a few new twists.
About Not Sure This Goes With Your Outfit
While the title is amusing, there is something of a statement that can go along with it. Daniel has chosen to point rather humorously to the idea that really this music isn’t intended for the stuffy environments of the performance hall. It’s for everyone, no matter what clothes they are wearing. Even if they are making choices to appear as unique and individual as they can.
Classical music was never really intended to be the domain of the elitist. It was music for the people. Mozart proved this with his popular opera’s written for the general public instead of being written for kings or royalty.
On another level, Daniel’s selection of this title could be seen as a commentary on the musical establishment. The question isn’t whether this is classical music, but rather a statement that “this” work doesn’t fit with an “establishment” conception of style.
There’s also a third layer of meaning to this title. Something of an internal joke. There are points at which you might be listening to this work and thinking, “how does that fit in?” That’s when you will discover the playful side of Daniel, occasionally hiding little pieces of incongruous material as a joke for your ears. These tiny non-sequitur could be seen as not going with the “outfit” of the composition as a whole.

The release of Happy Singles by Basic Elements marks a couple of firsts for CerebralAudio: the first release from Basic Elements, and the first downtempo release on CerebralAudio. It’s also the second release available in 24bit FLAC encoding.
Basic Elements has produced a set of pieces that are like listening to a great blues singer, in a modern setting. There aren’t any blues vocals or samples used in this release, but it is the mark of a great artist that can transform modern sounds, and carry the essence and spirit of past works into a modern setting.
Happy Singles focuses on relationships, and the pain and hurt they can bring out in people. Those are essentially blues themes. But in the hands of Basic Elements, these come out more as an R&B style, with a modern groove. The title is somewhat ironic, but a true statement about people that are more happy when they are single.
The title “Happy Singles” is also a double-entendre: all of the tracks on this release could be singles. They could be released as single tracks, but they take on a new level of poignancy when listened to as a whole. This is another mark of the magic that Basic Elements brings to this style of music, and something that CerebralAudio is proud to release.
“Slow Time” grew out of some slow arpeggiating tracks, of which one remained, I looked at some unreleased tracks, tracks that I couldn’t place yet and all came together in a picture as one. Experimenting with classical influences, as I do more often, mixing it with psychedelic and drone elements. The result I think exists in its own bubble, I hope it gives the listener a different sense of time. -Lingua Lustra
Cousin Silas returns with his fourth release on CerebralAudio: Transformations. This release centers on shifting minimalist patterns that constantly evolve and transform from beginning to end. These pieces were composed using ebow for the loops and pads and guitar for the patterns that subtly shift and change over time, creating a hypnotic soundscape for the mind.
This release is as abstract as several other releases on CerebralAudio, including The Sky Road. It’s a calm and serene set of pieces that have an implied rhythm, while using an actual percussive instruments, or specific elements within them. Whether it’s music you need for meditation, or to help you focus on a task, this is the work for you. Indulge yourself in eighty minutes of the constantly evolving and transforming soundscapes of Cousin Silas.
NOTE: For the first time we are offering 24bit, 48Khz FLAC encoding of this release!
Daniel Robert Lahey makes his third appearance on CerebralAudio with Iterations. The idea behind much of this work is based on the repetition of phrases while subtly changing them over time. It’s the basis of what became known as minimalism in the hands of composers like Steve Reich and Philip Glass.
But, with the iterative nature of these works is apparent, Daniel couldn’t leave could just write a set of derivative works that mimicked contemporary composers. Instead he reaches back into the world of serialism for a couple of these compositions. The density and complexity of these works belies their roots in the concept of minimalism.
It’s the sharp contrast between modern composition styles that makes this work interesting. Daniel has found a way to move between what many would consider to be ambient music and the most challenging classical music without finding any lines. He is an explorer of all ages of music.
Ivan Black has reinvented himself with this new full-length album, in Somnium Hypnotic displays his well known style of high level ambient perfectly fusioned with an oriental touch. Occasionally, there are major revelations in contemporary music, do not miss this one.
Daniel Robert Lahey makes his debut on CerebralAudio with Uncultivated Upland. Daniel started fiddling with the keys of a piano as soon as he could reach them and whenever he could get away with it. He took guitar lessons at 10 and got very serious about it by the age of 15. (Of course, he figured it would help him pick up girls.) He devoted 12 years to the classical guitar repertoire before he’d had enough of so much work for no pay.
Toward the end of his time as a guitarist, he started playing around with Synthesizers. He has been playing keyboards for over 50 years at this point. He grew up with a love for classical music, and has studied many of the great composition masters through the years. This knowledge of classical music is what informs his current works.
On Uncultivated Upland Daniel presents six new works that reflect his perspective on life today. Some of these compositions are a reflection of life in our world today, sometimes from
a slightly off-center perspective (like on “The Zookeeper Escapes” or “Baked”), while other times appealing on a purely emotional basis (like “Uncultivated Upland” or “Tears”).
Give these compositions a close listening. There is a lot to experience and a lot to savor in these well crafted, exquisitely produced recordings.

Bozal is a possible extinct Spanish-based creole language that may have been a mixture of Spanish and Congolese, with Portuguese influences. Attestation is insufficient to indicate whether Bozal Spanish was ever a single, coherent or stable language, or if the term merely referred to any idiolect of Spanish that included African elements.
Bozal Spanish was spoken by African slaves in Puerto Rico and Cuba and other areas of South and Central America from the 1600s up until its possible extinction at around 1850. Although Bozal Spanish is extinct as a language, its influence still exists. For instance, many Kongo words are found in the lexicon of the Puerto Rican dialect of Spanish. [wikipedia]

This year La bèl will turn 5 years old and we wanted to celebrate its birthday by publishing a La bèl compilation with all the artists that collaborated with us during these years. The idea is to ask each one of their for a “pop” track, leaving complete freedom to their personal interpretation of this word. We think this would be a nice idea, since hardly any of their works within the ‘pop’ scene. “La bèl pop” (fifth anniversary compilation) is the final outcome of this experiment. This compilation is published to coincide with the first Netlabel Day.
Experimented sound designer and ambient producer from Amsterdam, Albert Borkent, arrives as Lingua Lustra to Breathe with Violet, an ep of six original tunes under his particular style as creator of deep environments and interminable spaces.
Welcome to the first of two parts of Breathe’s Fifth Anniversary compilations, a dream come true thanks to all artists who have participated in this time. As always, our intention is give to listeners quality music of independent producers around the world.
All you need is open your mind and ears. In this volume you can find new music by Invector, Ohuican, In Vitro, Nathan Jo, Ray Garrido, Nulix, Frallar, ArnAck, TSS Tortue Super Sonic, AxBx, Vate, djrefugeeSW, Lomz & Lezet, Transmission 13 and Ivan Black.
Support freedom, support Bradley Manning, Alberto Patishtán Gómez and other freedom fighters.
Inspired by a bout of nostalgia, Jan Strach dove into his archive of a few dozens cassette tapes full of songs recorded between ages of 16-20. After digging through a few hundred tunes, he selected the most interesting to present to you, dear listeners. From regular songs with acoustic guitar in the style of early poj.wlkp, through experiments with two cassette players, casio-created ambient, sampled rock tunes and mandolin instrumentals, Jan Strach shows creations, in perspective maybe sometimes naive, but always honest, authentic and melodically interesting.

This album was made in Ecuador in 2013. As I camped and walked through Amazon jungle with little belongings and thought of being away from human territory. Routine sound there was completely different from those which I was used to hear in my city life. You might need more of your concentration, but you are able to create anything you like in the field of wildness.
Track 6 “colibri” consists of recording I made in Mindo, Ecuador. It is a sound of humming birds. Quite many of them passing and stopping by a recorder I placed next to feeders. – They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings, which sometimes sounds like bees or other insects. A group of hummingbirds is called a “choir.”- Indeed, powerful vibration sound they have considering their tiny bodies.
“He who has cast off the world has linked it to yellow dust
