recording, mastering and design by EMERGECRANK STURGEON explores the unwieldy commingling of noise and performance through the use of thrift store electronics, incongruous actions, and costuming reminiscent of supermarket aesthetics. Whether meditating on a roll of amplified packing tape or instructing an audience to fill Crank’s pants with water, the result has been a double-decade odyssey of noisy mishaps, inflatable parades, and accidental theater; feats destined for the shelves of ever-grinning and mesmerizing obscurity.
“The shaman won’t come back” is a new file-exchange based collaborative album of Ayato & Kecap Tuyul, It was recorded and mixed in various places between 2015 and 2018. Ayato played guitar with live looping made with a Revox reel to reel tape player, and Kecap Tuyul later overdubbed these hypnotic tracks with various sounds, building dense and trippy soundscapes.
This work can be considered as the 3rd part of a trilogy started with “Waiting for the shaman” , published 6 years ago. For the moment, the 2nd part of this trilogy exists only in the head of the listener.
After a web collaboration (album Imperceptible,) Onde Poussière return to free improvisation with their 4th album del_din04, made of sessions recorded on 25th and 26th september 2018. For this occasion, they once more experimented with new set-ups, this time with a focus on lo-fi sound. Doedelzak played laptop amplified with cheap computer speakers and occasionnaly flute, while Kecap Tuyul used his z(xW+yW), a low-tech modular system based on tiny battery-powered guitar amplifiers and contact microphones. Through this new change they continue to explore sonic material and techniques that are likely to cause various accidents and usually unwanted sounds, which are an essential part of the ground on which the band build its improvised soundscapes.
Frozen Clinamen is serie of works by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) started on autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions : all the sounds included in these works are recordings of moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #2 was recorded and mixed between april and august 2018.
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.

Anastatsia Vronski is a versatile experimental musician from Perm, Russia. Since years she has been creating an impressive and quite diverse body of work. Many of her tracks can be classified as “drone “or “noise”, but they always have a specific, often intriguing qualities. Above all, she’s not an artist who will do the same twice, and maybe that’s why some of her pieces are sometimes self-published isolately. Since we thought many of them deserved more exposure, we decided to make a selection of such works in a compilation album : Estrangements, that will be published in two volumes. The first volume gathers tracks composed in 2013 & 2014 (selected with the artist’s approval) that seem to share some kind of minimalist mood, although they are very diverse. For each of them, Vronski has written a few words about the specific methodologies and ideas (see below) involved in the composition. But this doesn’t make her music less mysterious. Each track seems inhabited by a mysterious and poetic spirit whose intrinsic qualities will appear to attentive listeners even without reading anything. The 2nd volume will be published in 2019
For its 38th release, Da ! Heard It Records changes your grey matter into black matter.
Just like the too-strong coffee that brings us to work each morning, this cassette album has the dark and bitter taste of a hopeless routine.
With this collection of vague loops whose high unstable notes bring back to the surface daily uncertainties, the Pleurs Magnétiques (“magnetic cries”) of this beverage has the listener drift far away from restorative sleep.
Dented, used, rickety, these rehashed snippets of existence crash into sunless beaches of sound.
In the background, the continuous breath that animates them sometimes gives a glimpse of its author’s, Bernard Grancher.
After pulling out of the forgotten pile the magnetic tapes of a hundred old pieces from the nineties with his stooge, Emmanuel Lautreamont, the Rouen-born tried his hand here at an original exercise in style.
Using the 4 track as an actual instrument, he plays with various effects to denature this initial material.
Between sonorous poetry and industrial music, the result shows an unpublished side of his work, all the while staying close to his habitual obsessions. The accompanying illustration, signed Nicolas Nadé, seems to be just as loyal to this pessimistic vision of our era.
Whether you are familiar with his surrealist pop synth released on Ego Twister and Gonzaï or simply intrigued by obscure atmospheres, you are sure to give in to this little black coffee…Pleurs Magnétiques, the 38th release of Da ! Heard It Records is distributes under a Creative Commons License Y-NC-ND.

recording, mastering, photography and design by EMERGENodolby is the stage name of Michele Scariot (b. 1974), sound enthusiast and noise performer from Italy.
Before Nodolby Scariot was known as the founding member of experimental electronic duo ENT (1999-2008).
Since 2007 Nodolby has made several releases on international labels from USA, Japan, Australia, Europe and Italy.
Nodolby’s live-sets constantly shift between the rhapsodic and the minimal, organized and destabilized sound flow. The sound sources are old, broken and bented devices – the aim of the process being the search for musicality in the most abstract sounds and explore limits and opportunities of control and interplay between the performer and such equipment. Over these years Scariot had the chance to play gigs across Europe and Japan, as well as the opportunity to play live improvisation with Fukte (I), NRYY (JP), Claus Poulsen (DK) and Yoshihide Otomo (JP).
In 2018 nodolby release his first sound design piece for the animation “Aperture” of visual artist Emanuele kabu.
In 2007 he founded the independent label DOKURO, releasing cassettes, CD-Rs, CDs and vinyls of experimental music by Howard Stelzer, K2, Mike Shiflet, Antony Milton, Magneticring, To Live and Shave in L.A., J. Soliday, Pax Titania, Fumio Kosakai, AMK, and many more.
Esta vez nos llegan las canciones desde Paraguay.
Coven, nuevo colaborador, busca el impacto del ruido y la oscuridad en el oyente. Ritmos acelerados, capas de ruido, voces desfiguradas… terror siniestro sin concesiones ni esperanza. Gracias por darnos caña!
Half Evidence (a french free improvisation duo formed in 2012 by Charles premier & Kecap Tuyul) is currently on hiatus since summer 2016 but their story isn’t finished. Some new material will be published in 2019. Before finalizing these projects, the duo has selected four of their favorite tracks that were given to various compilations (namely Necktar 2017 curated by Ed End on his netlabel Le Colibri Nécrophile and Classwar Karaoke). The resulting album Épiphytes brings four insights on the duo’s works and can be a good way to discover their sound universe and its evolution across the years.
The sky lets the darkening and rising time to be. Space is conquered by the higher element. Silence… She’s sitting here a couple of hours already. She observes her surroundings with a paraminic look, she waits until she sees again, until she feels again what she saw yesterday. That time northeast wind loudly running by asked her to look at trees standing naturally regularly. They looked calm and stiff, but when the wind passed their leaves whitely, the leaves breathed freely and started whispering silently, moving synchronously with stars.
