Last summer, my former bandmate asked me to process and glue his field shots, which he had taken during the holidays in Croatia. I liked the idea so much that I threw myself into this adventure and did all kinds of field shots with my old Nokia Classic 2300. With the material of Mathias and myself, I ventured into a new universe. This resulted in this over 2 hours long work, which should correspond to a timeless time capsule. This was my first work in this direction and it was a lot of fun, although a lot of time was taken.
>From outward journey to stay to return, this album breaks down a bit of modern history and does not leave much room for distraction. In the first chapter, the listener soon notices that the technician had forgotten to turn off his iPhone after field recording and most likely fell asleep. Sometimes one hears his breath, which fits in calmly on the whole chapter. Chapters 2 and 3 were then deliberately introduced as hearty life sketches and give the album a true consciousness.
Let yourself be abducted into a world full of appreciation.

Between the years 1620 and 1636, Peter Paul Rubens created, without the prompting of any commission, his Landscape with Philemon and Baucis. He kept working on this image throughout his life. The painting tells the story of Philemon and Baucis as Ovid presented it in his Metamorphoses. In Ovid’s narrative, an old married couple receives a surprise visit from the gods Jupiter and Mercury, disguised as weary travelers who cannot find a place to spend the night. The old couple does not judge these travelers or question where they are from; they simply offer them kindness and hospitality. The two gods offer the couple a gift expressing their gratitude: they spare their lives when, the next day, a great flood comes crashing over the land.
In the painting, only a small group of figures makes reference to this fable. The main theme of the piece is the unpredictability of nature with its untamed, uncontrolled power: lightning and thunder, rain and storms, a cow screaming as its life ends within a torrent, a mother desperately trying to rescue her baby. This is an apocalyptic catastrophe of unimaginable proportions. And yet, Rubens included a hopeful sign in this image: in the lower left-hand corner of the tableau, you can see a rainbow…
“Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,” sang Judy Garland in the well-loved film The Wizard of Oz (1939), a song promising hope and a wonderful world far from the darkness and ominous threats of the Second World War.
This image has much to tell us in our contemporary lives, as our current reality includes events such as the refugee crisis, global warming, and the threat of nuclear disaster. It acts as both a warning and a sign of hope.
For the theatre project Ganymed Nature, composer Karlheinz Essl worked extensively with Rubens’ Landscape with Philemon and Baucis, creating an immersive soundscape to reflect this painting. This sound work is based on algorithmically generated soundscapes taken from weather and other natural phenomena: the forest and the wind, a stream that swells and overflows, thunder and lightning. We also hear sounds that refer to human activity: rustling steps through foliage that turn into the ringing of high heels, in which a woman stalks on asphalt. And then there are signaling sounds: a firebell extends into an unending tolling that spins onward into infinity.
The poetry of the rainbow overarches everything; the promise of salvation, a glimmer of hope. To express this, Essl worked with an a-capella-choir to create chord structures which he then recorded and electronically transformed. The highlighted melodic fragments are reminiscent of the famous rainbow song yet appear in a peculiar harmonic disguise which let you sense the atmospheres of other planets.

In the style of the illustrative discs of the seventies and eighties from which Philippe Brown draws inspiration, the titles of this cassette’s compositions are clues themselves designed to stimulate the listeners’ imaginations. Thus, by holding the sleeve drawn up by Man Oroa while listening, each will be able to make up his or her own little story and discover the naïve-sounding, yet far from obvious, melodies.
One will thus go from one moon to the next without ever fully landing, floating softly above the ground among the bossa, zouk, or oriental rhythms and cinematographic atmospheres imprinted as much with second degree as with light melancholy.
Attracted to a musical era he didn’t experience but of which he uses the codes with style, Philippe has the characters evolve well beyond the musical frontiers we sometimes burden ourselves with. With this fictional original sound track at the crossroads of genres and eras, he visibly goes very far away, so far that everything leads us to believe that this dreamer of a musician most certainly has his head in the moon!

Stato Elettrico presents a brand new release by Jimmy Watt from Santiago, Chile. His work methodology focuses mainly on the capture, extraction, editing and storage of audio samples from different sources:
records on the street
audiovisual edits and converts of radio signals
uses a shortwave radio to capture foreign broadcasts
Transforms, relentlessly, curtails, beheads and sews sound works from different backgrounds and authors, providing the glue that comes from analog-digital instruments and audio processors and resulting in a “sound narration” split into parts.
His sound works do not drop below 20 minutes for just such narrative, where there is a development from defined introduction to epilogue.
Detests the “digital finishing” of sound with a computer. For that reason dirty, gnawing and saturated sounds prevail (but without spoiling the record), thus achieving kind of a sound archeology.
His creative concepts pursues mysticism, the occult, time, religions, the process that leads to contemplation, the silence, the pause, the suspension, death and upstarts.
Abuse of rhythm and melody is a necessary evil for those who can not handle a drift.
It’s like being in a large room without light. You need to touch the walls and artifacts that fill the room to feel welcome in the position and perspective.
ErrorTape was an error created when digitising an old tape recording using an ION Tape Express Tape to MP3 converter. It transferred successfully but the tape somehow started playing again from the beginning and started to loop, but it was also very slowly creeping forward so each loop was slightly different from the previous one. The recording is exactly how it was converted, no edits or effects were used. It’s about 9 minutes long but the length of the original sound source was maybe 30 seconds or less. The original sound is from a record made at an auto recording booth.

Everywhere Kingdom continues the adventure in the improvised/stream-of-consciousness realm but again takes the music in an entirely new direction. Whereas its predecessor was a hypnotic chillout adventure meandering through blurry clouds of warmly distorted synths and subdued guitars, here NOISE and RHYTHM are kings. Pummeling distorted beats, squealing and stuttering synth loops draw the listener into a brutal, yet groovy, experience. Bouncing between primitive hip-hoppy beats (Jellypit, Chimp Thug), industrial (Corrosive, Sno-Blower), techno (Saibaba Goblets, Shrrum Vacuum), ande even making a stop at noisy-casio-ska (When I Die), all slathered in static and distortion, the 9 tracks here make for an uncompromisingly thrilling ride which similarly exhausts and leaves the listener wanting more.
