Good night (or maybe morning or noon?), dear friends!

It's been a long time since our last update, amd the time has come - along with the new release produced together with the wonderful publishing house "Own Editions". This is a small book with absolutely unique content - complete illustrated collection of poems by Franz Kafka in German and Russian languages, and their multi-faceted musical interpretations on a double CD compilation. See more info just below.

The mailorder update features a lot of Russian editions this time. There are new works by such projects as Dom Vdovy, Nubiferous, Kaztalien, CDs and a t-shirt by a long-standing Siberian project Liholesie, a cassette with the archive live recording by Dm. Zubov (Hypnoz) and G. Avrorin on a new label Secretly Chuvashian, a vinyl record by Alexander Selivanov (ex-Mortart), two new cassettes by Lunar Abyss (collab with Kromeshna and split with System Morgue), new hi-end CD-R from Kshatriy with recent live material, CDs from St. Petersburg's minimal improv label Intonema and cassettes from Spina!Rec.

Also worth mentioning are the new CDs from Aquarellist label: the latest album by Rapoon in both standard and collector's editions, and the album by Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones side-project called Noroeste.

We also got some new discs from the nice Slovak electro-ambient label Aliens Production, some records from the American Helen Scarsdale Agency and a whole collection of rare Russian industrial releases from late 90-ies - early 00-s found by our long-time supplying partner, including early releases by such labels as Ultra, Ufa Muzak, etc. (sorry, but their prices are not for the faint hearted!).

Ugh, that's it for now!

Till soon,

We are pleased to present this unique double release produced by our label along with the "Own Editions" publishing house, the translator Olga Roschina, the illustrator Daniil Grazhdankin and a number of musicians from St. Petersburg, Moscow, Rostov-on-Don and Odessa. The first part - the "15 Poems by Franz Kafka" book - is the first ever bilingual illustrated edition of all known Kafka lyrics (in German and Russian). The second part is the musical compilation based on the material of this book.

As it turned out Kafka's works and their atmosphere are close to musicians from very different cultural layers. It's the point where many musical styles interwine: radical chanson and neofolk, female choir and collage electronics, post-industrial and dark ambient, rampant neoclassic, minimalistic improvisation and post-rock. The compilation features I. Belorukov, A. Popovskiy + D. Sorokin + B. Shershenkov, Pustotsvet, N. Sudnick, UtrovortU, Uhushuhu, Chumaho DRU, Bardoseneticcube & Chivadeshe, Eject, Kryptogen Rundfunk, Majdanek Waltz, Monocube, Sal Solaris, Sequoian Aequison, The Tune 3.0.

IV. New items in mailorder catalogue

CDs & CD-Rs

Ashley Blues -– "Arise And Let Us Spit On Your Body" -- CD-R -- €3
2012 Shit Noise Records, SNR 309, (ltd. 22)

Atolon -- "Concret" -- CD -- €9
2012 Intonema, int004, (ltd. 250)
Concret is not only 4th release of Intonema but also it's the long-awaited 4th release of the Spanish trio Atolon that was recorded in January, 2011 by Simon Reynell, director of English label Another Timbre. Alfredo Costa Monteiro (acсordion, objects), Ferran Fages (acoustic turntable, objects) and Ruth Barberan (trumpet, objects) are using their instruments by unusual way: they are preparing them, playing on their surfaces, knocking and inventing a lot of other ways for sound making. Despite of these non-musical sounds, the trio is following almost melodic motive all through the piece. [press-release]

Belorukov, Ilia / Kurt Liedwart -- "Obwod" -- CD -- €9
2013 Copy For Your Records, CFYR012, (ltd. 200)
First collaboration album of Russian improv musicians Ilia Belorukov (playing prepared alto saxophone) and Kurt Liedwart (using laptop). "The general approach on "Obwod", the subtle, soft melding of enhanced alto with electronics, brings to mind the Cathnor release from Graham Halliwell and Tomas Korber of a few years back, though this one contains perhaps a smidgen more rudeness. The four tracks don't diverge all that far from one another, tackling slightly different timbres, always long, shifting tones, usually very attractive on their own in a sour fashion, quiet throughout. In essence, it's not anything we haven't encountered along the way at times, but it's extremely well handled, carefully considered and well worth hearing." [Just Outside]

Belorukov, Ilia / Kurt Liedwart -- "Vtoroi" -- CD -- €9
2013 Mikroton Recordings, mikroton cd 25, (ltd. 300)
The first Mikroton release featuring Russian musicians Ilia Belorukov, a saxophonist from Saint-Petersburg, and Kurt Liedwart, an electronic and computer musician from Moscow who also runs the label. It’s their second longplaying work following Obwod which was released on Copy For Your Records. On the new CD the duo goes even further into the realm of unknown contriving to work with silence, space and chance with their traditional means like sinewaves and saxophone’s long tones. Saxophone preparations went into the background now and Ilia focuses on working with the saxophone’s surface using contact microphones which he feeds into a guitar mini-amp. At the same time Liedwart actively uses field recordings which he unexpectedly intertwines into the music texture. The duo offers its listeners to witness the investigation of saxophone’s new possibilities and synthesizer capabilities of ppooll. Eventually the duo finds itself not only in the field of contemporary improvised music but it also employs the means of Wandelweiser composers and noise music. [press-release]

Buckner, Thomas / Edyta Fil / Ilia Belorukov / Alexey Lapin / Juho Laitinen -- "Bewitched Concert" -- CD -- €9
2011 Intonema, int002, (ltd. 300)
The second step we took was the album Bewitched Concert by international quintet Thomas Buckner (USA), Edyta Fil (Poland), Ilia Belorukov, Alexey Lapin (both Russia) and Juho Laitinen (Finland). This is a record of a concert that took place at the Experimental Sound Gallery on November 6th, 2009. Spontaneously arising cast nothing negotiating played music rather reminiscent of academic music with some adds of free improvisation elements and acoustic drone... “It may feel strange but everything that played and sung on this album is very natural for instruments and voice – despite cello solo in Epilogue (performed with extravagant technique of string over-pressing which reminds Pierre Henri’s classical Variations for a Door and a Sigh) and Buckner’s shaman roaring. It makes a deceptive impression that this music can be easily notated by conventional way and if having a great desire – even can be performed according to that notation. Perhaps, only Deep Listening founded by Buckner’s compatriot (and probably a friend) Pauline Oliveros, sounds comparatively similar. Ilia Belorukov describes the concert atmosphere as “academic” and quite calm though, the performance form reminds the first movement of Witold Lutoslawski’s Second symphony Hesitant – when you listen to it you can’t trace that it invisibly involves you into a vortex of very fast music in which all sound events – like granules in the computer music - merge in one unique timbre.” (Dmitry Ukhov, from CD booklet)

Capece, Lucio -- "Less Is Less - Music For Flying And Pendulating Speakers" -- CD -- €9
2013 Intonema, int009, (ltd. 300)
Music for Flying and Pendulating Speakers - a new work by Lucio Capece, known primarily for preparing of wind instruments and post-reductionism. Currently he is focusing on a region of perception and sound being in space. In the first of two presented compositions Capece is playing in the cathedral in Bern using speakers flying on balloons, soprano saxophone and the sound of the room itself. The second part of the dis? is a piece for speakers as pendulums, moving according to the oscillation phenomena, and analog synthesizer. Filigree work based in acoustic properties of various materials and objects. [label info]

Disharmony -- "Cloned II" -- CD -- €9
2014 Aliens Production, AP 30, (ltd. 333)
Another dose of cloned, this time under the sign of Aliens production. After successful series of unreleased works and remixed projects, Slovakian duo dISHARMONY is once again showing its remix activity. Their new achievement presents a varied palette, either with every way routing electronic genres or never released pieces which are part of this project from the beginning. Many electronic nooks, industrial turbulences, movie atmospheres and original passages are accompanying this rare matter. Contrasted, but still compacted, wraps in a electronic spirit and for sure once again something from the archive which was never published. Bratislava's electro underground never sleeps, so watch out for this release, which transfers you into a dimension where the clones are pulsing in your blood circulation. [press-release]

Dom Vdovy -- "Somnum Flagellum" -- CD-R -- €6
2014 self-released
Black Ambient. Beautiful unhurried resounding album with a deep viscous atmosphere. Subterranean noises, howling and gloom blend with medieval tunes. Unusual for this style are the variety of sounds and saturation of tapestries, resembling the style of Dungeon Synth. Tape noise slows down the heartbeat, waiting for the coming dread becomes stronger, sense of time is lost. I really enjoyed the rhythmical middle phase of the album - ritualistic, lo-fi, multi-layered and endlessly grim. Closer to the end the clouds thickened and I witnessed the music very much akin to the LLN project and the sound recording techniques of the 90-ies. The title track, after which the album is named, hypnotically brings to contemplative state, bringing back to reality with a repetative phrase and a howl turning into a moan of despair. The album is an interesting continuation and at the same time brings some new features in the sound of Dom Vdovy. [E:\Music\Dark Ambient]

Eubanks, Bryan & Jason Kahn -- "Drums Saxophone Electronics" -- CD -- €9
2014 Intonema, int013, (ltd. 200)
Bryan Eubanks and Jason Kahn's debut album was released in 2011. Then Eubanks used his own customized open-circuit feedback system and analogue electronics and Kahn played his modular synthesizer. Intonema releases their second recording where Eubanks plays soprano saxophone with electronics and Kahn drums the kit this time. While you can hear Jason's drums in full scale, Bryan's saxophone takes a lot of effort to detect it in the rich texture of the duo's sound which continues its studies of microtones, dynamic shades and the work of hybridization of acoustic and electronic instruments. [label info]

Flowers Turn The Light -– "Earth Similarity Index" -- CD-R -- €4
2012 Kadaath Records, Kadaath 18, (ltd. 50)

Frontier Guards -- "Interface" -- CD -- €9

Project who can attract with his dominated sound and many magical spaces which often exceed the borders of our world.

Many analogue spaces, hybrid loops and melodic lines. [press-release]

Kaztalien -- "Atonal Tales of Drunk Woods" -- CD-R -- €8
2014 Nadeln Prod., NaP.VII, (ltd. 93)
There is some borderline, dividing space. Space with broken laws of logic, perception, eventfulness - space between the worlds of Reality and Unreality. And this state of being between the worlds is very interesting to feel. Reflections of fire on tree trunks, something comes close to silence... Weird forest psych-ambient, coming in and out of the woods. Listen to this disc at night with crackles of cooling embers turning into ashes, looking at stars... 93 numbered copies, handmade artwork. [label info]

Komatoserzustand -– "Koma" -- CD-R -- €8
2011 Abgurd, AB-61, (ltd. 95)
The audio on this was apparently inspired by the artist's intoxication on dichlorvos, which is an insecticide, and the coma that followed. As far as the audio goes I think it illustrates that very well. Long barely audible and rarely changing synth drones that move like a specter through the fog. It's really well done. I didn't have the highest hopes for this based on what I will talk about next but I was pleasantly surprised. The packaging on this is pretty forgettable. It's not horrible or anything. In fact it's fine but I honestly have to keep picking it up to literally remember what it looked like. I get dark, green, words… and that's about it. Also, the name is upside down on the spine, which isn't a big deal but it bugs me. I think it's also these slimline cdr cases that just scream boring to me. It's probably not fair but in the end I don't think it matters because the audio is super good. I recommend finding this if you can. It was limited to 95 copies and is probably almost gone. [Demian Johnston, Dead Formats]

Konstantin Magical Mystery Orchestra -– "Inner Ambient" -- CD -- €9
2014 self-released
It's better to call it the orchestra man, because this is the studio project and there's only one performer of all parts. He is also the composer, sound engineer, producer and art director of the project. Konstantin Zadorozhnikov is a doctor of alternative medicine in musical therapy, musician and video producer. The author of "art-n-science" concept whic lies in the basis of the musical project "Magical Mystery Orchestra", performing in the innovative author's genre "noo-ambient". It's not easy to categorize the noo-ambient genre. It's based on a synthetic interaction of several directions. The author refers noo-ambient to advanced music and names the basic features of the genre, such as created by him sympho-ambient, progressive electronica, modern classic, cosmo ambient, contemp. "Noo" is always an experiment, it plays with sparkles of images of various directions, constantly refilling and integrating them, making something new all the time... Undoubtedly the early creative period was influenced by New Age genre and classical music, later - by classical ambient of Brian Eno with the elements of the third world music and avantgarde. Tempo-rhythmical range varies from serene to expressive, tensed and pulsating, often with powerful intro or powerful coda. Polyphony is typical, as well as the use of many kinds of instruments combining acoustic and electronics. Vocals are rare, characterized by emphasized short choir riffs with clear pattern. On the last album "Inner Ambient" (2014) in addition to the traditional computer VST instruments, the Magical Mystery Orchestra also uses native ones - guitar and bamboo sax-flute. [press-release]

2013 Intonema, int006, (ltd. 200)
Dmitriy Krotevich is already presented in the Intonema catalog: he participated in the recording of Wozzeck "Act III: Comics" release.

Last year Dmitriy released several albums on internet labels that represent him as an electronic musician and composer, while the Intonema release presents him as an improviser expoloring the territory of electroacoustics. In the cover we used the artwork of Mongolian artist Solongo Monkhooroi. The album itself is dedicated to the Mongolian death worm called Olgoi-Khorkhoi - the worm is mentioned in various literature, but no one had ever seen it... The Mongolian death worm, also known as Olgoi-khorkhoi is rumored to live in the Gobi Desert, one of the most inhospitable regions of the planet. It is generally considered a cryptid: an animal whose sightings and reports are disputed or unconfirmed. This freakish creature is said to spray acid, send out electric shocks and explode when threatened. [press-release]

The seventh Intonema release is a split of two projects. The purpose of Moweton (its creator is Saint Petersburg guitarist Pavel Medvedev) - achievement of ultra-intense typical for grindcore by experimental means within the limits of the genre: cyber blast beats mutates into a glitch, riffs into noise improvisation, extreme overdrives into a kind of firing lasers in an old console game.

Track for the split was recorded at one of their perfomances on tour with Latvian guitarist Edgars Rubenis, the genre range of whose works spreads from noise and drone to blues-rock.

2006 Nextera, ERA 2040-2, (ltd. 1010)
"I attended The Hafler Trio performance of 'How to slice a loaf of bread' in Preston and was very impressed on many different levels. During a discussion with Andrew McKenzie after the event, he suggested that we might try a joint project. Shortly afterwards he sent me some of the original source material from the performance. It was my intention to preserve the overall shape & sense of the material, but at the same time move it to another (sonic)place. I hope I have achieved this, by a process of reformation."

Rapoon -- "A Long View Across" -- CD -- €12
2014 Aquarellist, aquarel 26-14, (ltd. 450)
"A Long View Across" refers to the feeling you get when touching an artefact that was made more than 7,000 years ago, in this case stone rock carvings in the Cheviot hills in Northumberland. Spread out across the top of the hills lie huge stone tables carved with many petroglyphs weaving in and out of each other. The sites where you find the carvings are all places with fantastic views across the hillsides and lowlands. Places of great beauty and serenity. There is a sense of “being out of time” at these sites. You are separated from yourself and instead feel a sense of being part of a greater whole. A spirituallity, if you will. The sense of a connection with our ancestors and being part of a continuity. looking backwards and forwards... a long view across. [Robin Storey]

Rowe, Keith / Alfredo Costa Monteiro / Ilia Belorukov / Kurt Liedwart -- "Contour" -- CD -- €9
2014 Mikroton Recordings, mikroton cd 32, (ltd. 300)
Weird recording for Mikroton featuring a duo recording of Keith Rowe and Alfredo Costa Monteiro and a quartet recording of them with Ilia Belorukov and Kurt Liedwart, two recordings made at the same day at spina!studio in St. Petersburg during Teni Zvuka 2013 festival... Their duo recording forms an exchange of personal experiences that bring the music into rather dry territories, with an acute sense of musicality. They conjured a unique sound world with accordion and prepared guitar, combining different sound qualities at the same moment. The quartet recording goes even beyond prevalent methodologies of working with sound, unpushingly pushing the sound around and violating many rules of the nowadays improvisation. [label info]

2011 Aliens Production, AP 25, (ltd. 333)
Structural fault: it is a solo project, based in Buenos Aires (Cap. Fed) Argentina, at the beginning of 2007, Jose Luis Colque "EL Sarco", gets his first basic tools for music production and begins to venture into the field of electronic music, thus giving some experimental models. The Sarco says that (Structural Fault) is the archetype of a neo-apocalyptic futuristic world, sometimes round in our dreams. Tried to expose her great attraction for art "minimalist" and "brutalist" manages the creation of hybrid sounds that are in turn surrounded by melodic atmospheres. On the other hand, the Antonomasia philosophical, sentimental, highlighted in each of the songs of love, with melodies melodramatic, they sink into a deep industrial landscape. The course of Structural Fault, is the free will of a rhythmic formula that will go exploring, new horizons inconclusive. Start a full-fledged mission to Structural Fault, with the invaluable support of the great hand of Sauron and Ryby (Aliens Production) and the challenge is the future! [press-release]

Wozzeck -- "Act 5" -- DVD -- €9

The eighth Intonema release is Act 5 by Wozzeck. This monumental work which lasted from 2010 to 2013 year will be released in the sixth birthday of the project: September 10-11 2013. This is as much as 200 minutes of playing time. The album contains 5 compositions by Ilia Belorukov that are united by one idea and performed as a trio with Mikhail Ershov and Alexey Zabelin. Monotony, meager growth and micro changes of a composition structure coupled with hidden surprises and sound changes from one part to the other - these are the basic properties of Act 5. Boring, tedious, interesting, entertaining, long, short, loud, quiet, fast, slow, why, how, what, where, who, whom. The album is releasing on audio-DVD disc with a 32-page booklet which describes in detail all the cycle compositions with their scores. [label info]

Millis, R. -- "Relief" -- LP -- €15
2013 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 025, (ltd. 400)
Our man Millis is a Climax Golden Twin and a noted curator of globe trotting / time traveling esoterica, amongst other accolades. In the former category, Millis and Jeffery Taylor steadily release some of the most headscratching amalgamations of avant-rock, decontextualized temple music, heightened-state minimalism, and collaged field recordings this side of the Sun City Girls (including the soundtrack to the cult film Session Nine); and in the latter, Millis has published a number of acclaimed anthologies for Sublime Frequencies (Scattered Melodies, This World is Unreal Like a Snake in a Rope, Phi Ta Khon, The Crying Princess, etc.) and Dust-To-Digital (our personal favorite, aptly titled Victrola Favorites). With his fingers in so many jars of jam, it can seem like an uncommon occurrence for Millis to release solo work although he is one to smear his sticky hands all over himself in performance, installation, and collaboration. Thus, The Helen Scarsdale Agency is delighted in presenting his latest opus, Relief... A fever dream of blurred harmonics and ethnomusicological spelunking, Relief repeatedly returns to variations on a peculiar yet beautifully serpentine drone, whose twinkling acoustic properties meld the hallucinatory mouth-music of the Bangladeshi Murung people and the curved air hypnosis of Terry Riley. Millis bookends and interrupts his mysterious miasma with comedic interludes snatched from his lauded collection of antique 78s, maudlin piano tone-clusters, and teleported crescendos of spectral ballroom waltzes. More Nurse With Wound than The Caretaker, this polyglot raga-drone of daytime somnambulism and psychedelic slipperiness speaks to the uneasy borders at psychological, cultural, and geophysical states of being. Oh, to be a human on this planet. [press-release]

Nilsen, BJ & Stilluppsteypa -- "Big Shadow Montana" -- LP -- €15
2011 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 020, (ltd. 500)
After producing their frozen trilogy of intoxicated dronemuzik for the Agency, these Scandinavian gentlemen have ventured into more absurdist territories through fictionalized soundtracks for imagined Mondo films and science fiction serials. It is in this context that BJ Nilsen & Stilluppsteypa present the apparitional Big Shadow Montana, an album of slow-motion delirium manifested in occluded smears, nocturnal gasps, and arcane tones from a variety of analogue synthesizers. Amidst the near constant wash of bleary-eyed etherialism, Big Shadow Montana cycles through several sonic themes and leitmotifs, displayed in varying states of clarity. In these transitions between half-remembered phrases and bleary-eyed thrumming, the album emerges as if it were the aftermath from a protracted bout of metaphysical channel surfing. Flickered impressions flash in conjunction with Breton's manifesto of Surrealism in the form of the memories from happily drunk escapades in the heart of winter, the sidereal spells cast by the innerspace travelers Klaus Schulze and Coil, and the nagging questions of existential portent: "Was that bassline from Goblin, or was it German Oak? Maybe something from Faust IV?"... The trio of Nilsen, Sigmarsson, and Thorsson elegantly twist and bend these fleeting images into a spiraling symphony of bubbling electronics and spectral drones that mutate on both sides of the record into lugubrious yet carnivalesque waltzes. When this first appears, it is the echoing undercarriage of a simple melody, bobbing amidst rattling chains and cascading cymbal crashes only to dissolve into sequences of cold-war era tone beacons and empathic swaths of maudlin sound design. At the second occurrence, the melody washes ashore on the Iceland beach, where nude Viking men and women try in vain to get a tan when the sun is just barely going to rise above the horizon in the winter months. It is a pyrrhic jubilation of calliope harmonies set down by organs and synths turning a pale-blue hue in the wake of all that white skin shivering underneath the arctic sky... A hauntological album? Quite certainly. And yes, the vinyl does come with a download code. [press-release]

RV Paintings -- "Samoa Highway" -- LP -- €15
2010 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 019, (ltd. 500)
RV Paintings were born in California. Humboldt County, to be exact. It is nearly impossible to imagine their origins being elsewhere since the brothers Brian and Jon Pyle, who currently pilot RV Paintings, constantly mine the metaphysical properties of their homeland through a heavy-lidded psychedelia. The redwood trees that majestically rise from the rugged terrain may have been one of the endemic objects that inspired RV Paintings to "jam nature;" but Humboldt County's other major cash crop -- marijuana -- cannot be far behind. As much as the Pyle brothers channel a psychotropic animism through sound, their diaphanous drones and foggy ambient tangles spring from a schematic intelligence that belies any method acting of getting stoned and jamming in a room... Samoa Highway is the second full album for RV Paintings, following the nature jam transmissions of Trinity Rivers published by Root Strata in 2007 and a well-suited split LP with Taiga Remains from Blackest Rainbow. Just as the debut payed homage to the rugged river system that cuts through forests and mountains of the region, Samoa Highway refers to the lengthy bridge that runs between two coastal communities in Humboldt County, one of which houses a municipal airport. A swarm of drone guitars announces the opening of the record on "Millions," with a shoegaze wash collapsing into rarified tone purity and bulging through a metallic buzz. Field recordings of airplane take-off and firework explosions punctuate the undulating bleary smear of the Pyle brothers' guitars. The result is one of levitation, even as RV Paintings seem to be plugging their guitars and electronics directly into the moss, soil, and mycelia of the Humboldt forest. Echo-soaked flutes, maudlin strings, scabrous noises unearthed from the bottom of the Pacific, and a cinematic arcs of guitar shimmer complete the beautiful and haunted miasma of Samoa Highway that falls somewhere between Taj Mahal Travellers, Organum, and The Caretaker... Brian Pyle may be best known as one of the founders of the Starving Weirdos and records his solo work as Ensemble Economique. Samoa Highway stands the first piece of vinyl published by Helen Scarsdale Agency and includes a code for a digital download. Pressed in an edition of 500 copies. [press-release]

Selivanov, Alexander -- "K7" -- LP -- €11
2014 Don Contemporary Art Foundation
The debute vinyl release from Russian musician and painter Alexander Selivanov previously known for his project Mortart. The material was recorded in 2001 but released only now. Unlike now defunct Mortart, where Alexander performed dirty suffocating music in death industrial style, this record contains much more abstract sound - slightly melancholic remote autumnal drone ambient. Side B contains unexpected deep minimal techno remix of the basic material made by Indeepend.

Taiga Remains -- "Works For Cassette" -- LP -- €15
2014 Helen Scarsdale Agency, hms026
Here be the final drone / hypnogogic statement from Taiga Remains. The man behind Taiga Remains has now shelved this moniker; but he's far from hanging up his hat, as he now works under his given name Alex Cobb -- also known as the philosopher king who benevolently reigns over his Students Of Decay. There are those at the Agency who can claim to speak with the poetics of corrosion, and we have long admired the sympathetic aesthetic in Cobb's gorgeously elegant compositions for guitar, bells, tape hiss, and whatnot. A sadness of things hangs in the air for Cobb's suspended mantras as these pieces evolve through a state of perpetual (un)becoming. For Cobb, the decaying sound is a steady dissolution of one chromatically rippling pattern into another which in turn diffuses into another and the cycle continues; but for every slippery note that pools into watery aquifers, Cobb distances himself from discursive and didactic languages that affix specific meanings onto work. He prefers a mystery and an ambiguousness to hang upon his crepuscular minimalism where the audience can entertain guided excursions of subjective thought. For us, these radiant guitar drones flecked with impressionist melodies bath in the snow of a thousand radios placed throughout Easter Island offering forth their eerie, luminous and beautiful sound that floats amongst those stoic heads that gaze beyond the horizon of the pacific ocean towards infinity, or oblivion if you prefer a more sublime reading. As the title to the album states, this album originally published in small cassette editions, long out of print. The material has been gloriously mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin... Those with an ear for Andrew Chalk, William Basinski and those long-form passages from Natural Snow Buildings will find much to celebrate in Taiga Remains. [press-release]

Kurt Liedwart is mostly known as a musician working in the field of electroacoustic and contemporary improvised music. On this split cassette release on Spina he filled the whole side with ambient verging on digital sound and lo-fi aesthetic. By the way, it's his debut solo release... Project`s name "Moweton" and its glitchy grindcore style ('Guitaroid vs Megadrumster' already released on Intonema) has changed and now as "MWton" it becomes dark and atmospheric, with all kinds of sounds in which you can hardly discern guitar.

Padla Bear Outfit -- "Sunday Morning Tapes" -- MC -- €5
2014 Spina!Rec, sr007, (ltd. 50)
Padla Bear Outfit (PBO) is probably the last band in my life whose shows I was visiting at least once every three months. Firstly it could fit my routine and secondly their music used to change irreversible over a three month period which made me to run wide-eyed suggesting everyone to listen to their songs. Basically, that's what I was doing and I was criticized for this while working in "Afisha" magazine. "Sunday Morning Tapes" represents a late (but not the latest) period of PBO existence. Madness and conceptualism of the original squad had changed into a much more phlegmatic vibe. Music is dominated by a dry, sharp, and almost kraut-rockish groove. It seems like, in this particular period, a combination of brutal and tender feelings, which was always amazing in Arseniy Morozov's songs, reached its culmination. Several tracks on this record are released for the first time while others are early versions of what appeared on the only "produced" 7-inch. Finally, few songs are well known but once again re-written. It is a linguistic pleasure to compare small edits in "Grin" lyrics. But the main thing here is what is not here. Even three years after this record has been made and PBO retired, "Sunday Morning Tapes” makes us not feeling sad about what is gone but happy about what we have now. Nevertheless, who cares if you are or you are not. [Alexander Gorbachev, Afisha Volna]

Whetham, Simon -- "From The Mouths Of Clay" -- MC -- €5
2014 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 029
For 3 months in early 2013, Simon Whetham had the space and opportunity to develop his work, ideas and methods, taking part in the inaugural residency of a lab project run collaboratively by the Museo Universitario de la Universidad de Antioquia and Casa Tres Patios in Medellнn, Colombia... Combining and building on recording and playback methods and ideas with found objects, discarded technology and methods of his working practice and others such as Alvin Lucier and Nicholas Collins he investigated sonic, acoustic and phenomenological qualities of the gallery space and faulty or used equipment that was donated or found in nearby market La Cascada... Following on from a 'recreation' of “I am Sitting in a Room”, the process was applied to a selection of 3 prehispanic burial urns and 3 examples of more recent variations on this theme. The internal resonances were captured and then played back inside the urns utilising small speakers, or through them using transducers, the process repeated to uncover tones held within the clay and the space within... The result was demonstrated as an 8 channel installation, with each of the 6 vessels singing with it's own voice and 2 speakers playing lower tones created by the vessels using the same process, but using a microphone inside each and a larger speaker placed against the outside. This work combines sound material from the installation and further investigations carried out during the residency period, recorded in the space, from inside the vessels or reproduced inside and through them.

2014 Secretly Chuvashian, SC001, (ltd. 60)
Dmitriy Zubov needs no introduction, as he was behind the cult project DER GOLEM, recording experimental dark ambient as HYPNOZ and was the head of the insane band ZUBOFF SEX SHOP. Grigoriy Avrorin is another actionist of the Russian undergrouns, famed for his harsh noise and wild radical performances. This recording was made during a gig in St. Petersburg in September of 2010. This short album lasting for only 30 minutes includes three uncompromised compositions in the genre of improvised noise. The main quality of these three tracks is their completely international and timeless nature. This cassette sounds like it was recorded never and nowhere. Even some shouts coming through unexpected noise modulations seem to belong to the electronic voice phenomenon, but not to human speech. [Monochrome Vision]

Architects Office -- "Soundtracks" -- CD -- €9
2014 Monochrome Vision, mv49, (ltd. 500)
The debut CD album of the american project existing since the early eighties, but still one of the most unusual musical units in electronic music underground. Beyond any styles and trends, these abstract collages and avantgarde pieces deserve more attention of wide audience. Architects Office is a volunteer electro-acoustical intuitive aleatoric music-making performance & project group begun in the spring of 1983 during the sudden renaissance of cassette self-publishing in the international correspondence music network. Emphasis is on live performance (over 100) with technique and aesthetic of rendition aimed at manifestation of “musical adventure” often in unusual locations — a former enormous Woolco store location, outdoor band shells, roofs, and over the telephone, having taken place in Colorado, New York City, San Francisco, San Diego, Lawrence Kansas, Albuquerque New Mexico and elsewhere. Membership has always been in flux, with the only one core member - Joel Haertling. Instrumentation has included Crumar DS-2 and other synthesizers, French Horn, Hunting Horn, Plant Communicator, found audiocassette recordings, Tabla, Esraj, Contrabassoon, and other instruments over 30 years. Architects Office releases include 6 self-published cassettes, full-length cassettes published by Flowmotion (UK), audiophile Tapes (US), Subelecktrik Institute (US), ADN (I), Realization (US) as well as 73 appearances on compilations on cassette, LP record and CD. Extensive film and sound collaboration with Stan Brakhage began in 1986 and continued until his death including several 16mm films and the play Caswallon the Headhunter by Jane Brakhage with music by Architects Office published on LP record by Silent Records in 1986. Other film collaborations include those with Paul Lundahl and Joel Haertling. Parallel activities included the self-publication of the Zamizdat Trade Journal magazine about cassette underground (13 volumes) including a co-published with Flowmotion (Leeds UK) and 3 extensive tape compilations featuring 65 groups from 10 countries. This release is comprised on music from the 1980s. Several of the tracks featured on this release were prepared for major fizzled projects with Third Mind, Recloose Organization, Auxilio de Cientos, Silent Records, Subelectrik Institute, Azteco Records, and others which were never released or rejected by the label. Previously published tracks are included as bonus. AO personnel 1983-1987: Joel Haertling, Rick Corrigan, Charlie Verrette, Douglas Stickler, Trevor Haertling, Lynn Ablondi, Claude Martz, David Lichtenberg, Evan Cantor. [press-release]

Barbarossa Umtrunk -- "Wehrwolf Dharma" -- CD -- €27
2010 Ufa Muzak, UFA 33, (ltd. 200)
Military pop / Esoteric industrial. UFA presents a grandiose album by the French sound battalion BARBAROSSA UMTRUNK. This masterpiece is hard to file under a certain style, as they are so interwoven in music and can't be clearly defined. Ethnic elements, cimbals, shamanic singing, heavy drones, synth lines and lots of vocals blend together into an insane mix of apocalyptic, ritual and orchestral neoclassics. The album's concept is no less complex and sophisticated, it was inspired by the theories of Hans Horbiger and northern dark shamans cults. Spinning around the magic of seids and werewolf mysteries, the hidden plot of the songs tells us about the attempt to rewrite the history of Hyperborean race from the very beginning, from the fall of Thule legend. The ice-cold atmosphere of this album penetrates into the fundamental principle of a mystery, and the werewolf spirit sleeping in collective unconscious wakes up. BU ised in their work texts by J. Parvulescu, R. Howard, A. Rosenberg, M. Marmin (creator of "Greece" new right-wing group in France). The album contains tribute songs to Runes Order and Celtic Frost... Cold merciless ambience of a forest where secret is buried in soil itself, dark paths that protect and wreck, gibbous Moon singing silent songs... in darkness it starts the dreadful game of death, and the sound of broken bones and the wild howl of wolves become a new catastrophic believe. 10 tracks, 72 minutes, 200 copies, sturdy 4-panel sleeve with an insert.

Birchville Cat Motel -- "Gunpowder Temple of Heaven" -- CD -- €10
2008 Pica Disk, PICA004
Birchville Cat Motel is the project of New Zealander Campbell Kneale, who has from his base in Lower Hutt since the mid 90-ies established himself as the leading voice of this generation of NZ sound artists. Gunpowder Temple of Heaven is a new highlight in his extensive discography. A single 40 minute long-form piece that keeps building and unfolding; heaven for drone-noise enthustiasts. The CD comes with a booklet with a complete Birchville discography as well as liner-notes by Bruce Russell. From the liner notes of Bruce Russell (The Dead C): "I've been listening to the music of Campbell Kneale for more than a decade now. Recently I've been listening with a sense of increasing admiration as he stacks up monumental sound slabs in an architecture of audition - building a lofty tower of sound. Always a dedicated worker at whatever he does, Campbell had mastered the detailed work required to place many sounds accurately across each another. Often this kind of 'more is more' strategy backfires into murky sludge, where the increasing layers merely obscure each other. On the contrary, the more BCM puts into a piece, the more you hear coming out." [press-release]

Bunker -- "YAD Vashem" -- 3"CD-R -- €14
2006 UFA Muzak, UFA09, (ltd. 90)
The 2nd savage clot of ruthless hatred from this project. Ultra dark, oppressing and slow atmosphere submerges into the world of forbidden tabooed myths. Forms of administration, mysteries, substitutions, conspirological theories - themes known as "fascist" which became a synonym to "inhuman". But it's not as simple as we are told, and this release should give a cause for all who dare to search the answers for the questions that are dangerous to ask in a pseudo-liberal state. "Yad-Vashem is a huge memorial complex built in memory of the victims of the catastrophe of the European Jewry during WWII, which is called Holocaust in Europe, or Shua in Hebrew. A warning memorial, where buildings are built from 6 millions (?) of stones, symbolizing these victims. The title is translated as Hand and Name, although the word "yad" has one more meaning in biblical Hebrew - monument, memorial, tombstone. The title is taken as a quotation from the Bible: the memory and the name will stay in human deeds." 5 tracks of aggressive and obscure heavy electronics, 22 minutes full of aversion and fear. [press-release]

Crown of Cerberus -- "Her Everlasting Strength" -- MC -- €5
2014 Terror, TR-31
The final part of the triptych, consisting of "Strength", "Her Strength" and now this tape. This is a tape with very personal and sentimental approach that I don't even want to ruin the feeling with unneccessary words. Crown of Cerberus is the project of Waddiah Rabbiah Chami (Koufar, Insurgent, Bachir Gemayel) and those who has ever heard Crown of Cerberus, can more or less feel what to expect - melancholic and light synth melodies and a weird feeling in the air while this tape spins over and over again. Excellent artwork created by Si Clark. [label info]

Der Jager / Ryr -- split -- CD-R -- €27
2007 UFA Muzak, UFA14, (ltd. 99)
"I will never die" - repeating like a prayer-spell thousand of times, going forward and never back, falling, believing and dying. The buttress on an inner core is a belief in impossible as an exact description of war, which strenghts lies in the choice of a single right decision: never to surrender. Two projects present their view on depth of kshatriya spirit through the times of carrying the true fire of victories, defeats and valuables inherent only in heroic life. DER JAGER, a young project from the town of Danilov, Russia, has created c collage martial soundscape glorifying "The Thousand-Year Reich" and it's fall, so beautiful in it's severity and mercilessness. This musical project has a distinct goal and orientation, totally sodden with ideology and politics. RYR settles down in the 2nd part and proves it's status with a good portion of enigmatic and solemn music of war. Even more loss here, even more search. "Save your dreams, not to make your world loose the hope". Martial industrial. 8 tracks, 41 minute, CD-r, cardboard sleeve, 2 inserts. [press release]

FaLX cerebRi -- "Trials Textures Errors" -- CD -- €9
2014 Monochrome Vision, mv15, (ltd. 500)
Almost 7 years in making, finally this milestone of pioneering & legendary german noise outfit is released - more than 25 years after the last recorded FaLX cerebRi track, compiles several contributions to compilations, as well as outtakes, erratic experiments, live cuts and unreleased tracks. The name FaLX cerebRi was chosen for the new music and art project by Graf Haufen early in 1983, as he felt it was a complete departure from his previous minimal synth endeavours. The name suited the project as it describes the borderline between the brain hemispheres. On one side the rational and analytical part of the brain, on the other the intuitive and creative part. The music of FaLX cerebRi was never meant to be consistent. Errors were embraced. Confusion was intended. Hence also the strange way of spelling. The project always remained open for all sorts of experimentation – ranging from noise to ritualistic drone ambience, from cut up collage work to hardcore electronics, from conceptual static surface noise to rhythmic evocations of the demon beasts. Always somewhere in the grey areas between conceptual work and – in its own strange way – regular "song" structure. The first release was unleashed in June 1983 on a limited edition promo cassette called «Pyogenic Organism», that came packaged with a real human blood sample and covered in sheep's brains. The promo opened the doors for FaLX cerebRi, as its tracks appeared on several cassette compilations in 1983 and 1984. Newer, exclusive tracks appeared furthermore on labels such as Schrei Records, Gut Level Music, Illuminated 666, Fraction Studio, Broken Flag, ZSF Product, Al Khemi, Selbstmord Organisacio'n, Requiem Productions, Cthulhu Records, Illusion Production, Zamizdat Trade Journal, Necronomicon, De'viation Culturelle, Insane Music, Alien Artists, Korm Plastics, Bog-Art, Club Moral, Les Ballets Me'chaniques and Dill Prod. A year later in June 1984 the first and up to now only album of FaLX cerebRi was released simultaneously on 7 labels: «Rite 64», a C60 cassette, was published on Graf Haufen Tapes in Germany, Korm Plastics in Holland, Gut Level Music in the USA, Fraction Studio in France, Requiem Productions in Norway, Servile Ghost in Australia, Calypso Now in Switzerland and Auxilio De Cientos in Spain in a print run of 500 copies. A remastered CDr with bonus live cuts was released by Korm Plastics in 1999. The following contributions to cassette and vinyl compilations saw a shift in musical directions – on one hand towards drone ambient or simply voice based melancholic echo-loop compositions, on the other hand very conceptual outer edge works like surface scannings with a variety of microphones or field recordings to replace composed music. FaLX cerebRi performed a couple of ritualistic live shows in 1985 in Berlin, Budapest and Bordeaux, worked on soundscapes for installations and exhibitions, as well as conceptual sound installations and photo performances for international art exhibitions. A second album was planned in 1985 but never fully realized apart from a rough mix that didn't work properly, partially due to technical factors, but also because of the variety of compositions and conceptual works. Instead Graf Haufen published a limited edition 7" EP on this new imprint Artcore Editions with scannings and a rather rhythmic «Nature Is Noise Enough» field recording. FaLX cerebRi only recorded seldomly after that – a few tracks appeared on compilations and some long, static drone compositions remain unpublished and were shelved away. [press-release]

FUNKSTILLESENDER along with ZFK, PUBLIC IMMORALITY and KOMATOSERZUSTAND was a part of mysterious alliance that existed in Lipetsk, Russia, in 2004 and 2005. During that period the projects created a solid amount of very talented albums that cloaks the listener with scorching Harsh Noise (ZFK and PUBLIC IMMORALITY) and hollow Radiodrone (FUNKSTILLESENDER and KOMATOSERZUSTAND) in a masterly fashion. The mini album we have here contains two last tracks that appeared in 3 years after the author's death in May of 2005.

Hypnoz -- "Chronica Plennyh" -- CD -- €12
2006 Insofar Vapor Bulk, IVBCD12
"Chronica Plennyh" is the first album of Hypnoz, or better not, it's rather mystical-sonic notes of Dmitry Zubov, very personal and disgracefully sincere, shocking with their non-standard approach to recording. For instance, on a track "Elektrichestvo" he plays backand forth the recording of laughing of his friend Roman S. (project Staruha Mha) who took LSD-25 for the first time, plus overlay of glass breaking by metal crow-bar at his home, altogether mixed with sounds of boiler-room. Or recording session with a man who was imprisoned for a murder ("Serdcebienie"). The 9th track "Radio "Artem" is dedicated to the fond memories of Artyom Grechko (silly and funny man, founder of a style "dispanser rock"), brutally killed at a spring in a sleeping-quarter somewhere in Moscow. After listening to 14 tracks one unwittingly finds himself in a dark space realm of unknown sides of Russian soul. As author says himself, he's been travelling there often. [press-release]

Ierophania -- "s/t" -- CD-R -- €14
2006 UFA Muzak, UFA07, (ltd. 131)
Martial ritual industrial. Traditionalism, Authority and Weapon in the 'athanor' of this post-industrial project from Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Particular admiration of the highest authority creates confrontation against vulgar "hypermarket world of NWO", the goals are irreconcilable, we have to win. People of "other kind" start fighting their enemy, fighting with his own weapon. By making the basis of kuulturkampf industrial culture confirms its existence as the basis of confrontation between "contemporaneity" and struggle-life under any regime. 8 pieces of martial backgrounds, metallic percussion and aggressive nervous vocals create the atmosphere of damnation, hatred and power. You have to understand this. Find the vertical and enter the war against the golems' world. [press-release]

Ierophania -- "Post-military, Chapter 1" -- 3"CD-R -- €14
2008 UFA-Muzak, UFA 19, (ltd. 80)
Martial Ritual Industrial. "This track anticipates fullenght album "Post-military", and is thus both promo and single and exclusive track simultaneously. Recorded on April 25, 2007 and marks by itself radical crisis in sound philosophy of IEROPHANIA. Is characterized by low-frequency aggression, plentiful use of analogue shockingly not brushed sounding, every possible linear "clips", active white noise, overloadings and other preasure things. In his basis lay ritual sessions which have been spent by us on Northern city cemetery and in deserted railway depot. On ritual depth is, probably, best, that for today was made by IEROPHANIA. Above this track we worked in complete line-up. He was by expression of that condition of absolute despair, pain and hatred, which has taken possession by us after performances in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg, when we have confronted with the general decomposition which has captured these cities" (information of the project) Malicious, orgaistic hysteria of a funeral cold and eternal darkness.

2008 UFA-Muzak, UFA21, (ltd. 113)
Noir Martial / Power Ambient. The project of military ritual chanson and occult blessing from Rostovs-on-Don have spread out on a bloody altar of the Great Black Mother the special mercury medicine. The effect constant of "restless presence" has given amazing result in an image of a new album: on trails of infinite war and through furnaces of true faith, to the greater acceptance Nigredo and incessant nervous pressure. It is a very serious album up to extreme limits. And it is necessary to listen to it standing, Without tears, without hysterics, without splits, having compressed in a fist all "human". Having washed, having dressed in clean clothes and having understood that the road back already no. The history already no. Through severe industrial form of steel sculptures of the past accept the fear as a duty, in blood now there is more IEROPHANIA. The group which to the full expressing "the mystery of Russian soul". Light dies away, everyone leave… 10 tracks, 67 minutes, 6x panel envelope with the texts, made from a rough cardboard drawn by a cord. [press-release]

In Meditarium -- "Les Fleurs Du Mal" -- CD-R -- €5
2002 Soulworm Editions, Worm XVII, (ltd. 300)
Another fine incarnation of the almighty Ukrainian artists of the First Human Ferro fame. In Meditarium has that easily recognisable sound, but makes a few steps deeper into dark atmospere of decadent joys of an alienated human being. Some ritualistic influnces are to be heard (say Archon Satani in the 'Virgin Birth' period), the rudimetary melodies fulfill the whole setting. The lyrics deal with consensual aspects of love and completion on the one hand, pain and serenity on the other. James Joyce's lines (taken form 'Giacomo Joyce') constitute the final comment and an invocative epitafium to this masterpiece... [press-release]

New noise project from Russia presents 27 minutes of serious and dark material dedicated to the Soviet correctional work-farms of the past century. Ortokon is translated from the language of a small nation from the North of Eurasia as "burnt piece of land". This word lies at the root of the name Orotukan - a settlement (506 kms from Magadan) established by the prisoners in polar darkness and inhuman conditions. Where, as few survived witnessed, the barrack walls were laid round outside by frozen copses for protection from the wind. Where the action of baneful labour was often forestalled by an impatient bullet. Harsh and malicious noise with heavy lower step of rhythm, dirty and oppressive atmosphere of bestial horror and the end limits of human state. Death of still living and live of already dead.

They either win or become expiatory victims. And in the beginning of each new Age, if we are able to see beyond the demiurgic look, in Archetypes and Aeons, the Hero is given the hidden message of Yearning, allowing him to forge the most powerful weapon to open the road of liberation and the way out from the prison of Fate. Archetypes carry the message and unveil the mysteries of science which allow to create the sword..." Even more deep, even more secret. Vagueness. Through the alloy of martial industrial and dark ambient is built the task of comprehending the unexplained. The presence of the mystery of general European myth throught the concrete historical cut. Thundering stretching layers of sound, cuts from the past, overloaded remembrances, dark calling depths, pulsating air of a dream. Wake! [press-release]

Ryr -- "In Spring 117" -- CD-R -- €27
2006 UFA Muzak, UFA06, (ltd. 117)
New head from RYR project. War... Emptiness... Deapair... Hope... Mist... Blood... View... History... Fall... 117 steps... Down... 46 minutes of new experience of the martial atmosphere for the people who have to know more and maybe more dreadful.

The album is very musically diverse and saturated. Distorted noise, military samples, ritual pulsations, ambient soundscapes. Aside for typical Ryr samples you'll hear apocaliptyc poetry in French, Russian, German, Swedish... The album starts with sprightly hymn of "German girls union" gradually sinking in shots, shouts and weeping, and ends with magnificent "Last Spring" of Grieg. Non-standard package, first 46 disks are sprinkled with blood. [press-release]

Ryr feat. Ultrapolyarnoe Vtorzhenie -- ":Thule:" -- CD-R -- €14
2012 Ufa Muzak, UFA50, (ltd. 111)
Ritual industrial / Apocalyptic avantguarde. Coming to the last point on Mercator's map, to the deeply hidden mountain of Meru. Everything ends and starts again. Two twilight projects present the last chapter, which has bound with a fine thread the encrypted numbers, from 1 to 50, and created the trajectory on an invisible map between the poles. In the foundation of the swastika-like pyramid, in the center, embossed ias an ornament locked inside itself like Ouroboros snake. The relict radiation here reaches the maximum level of spectral power illuminating background body covered with runes. The polar night of supernova stars lays out the white continent in parts, ready to accept the "Highest Unknown Ones". Silence lit only once by a giant of KV III spectral class, creating the "moment of history end". Apollo's chariot explodes with swan-like projections and moves behind the boundaries of Borea, crumbling in huge celestial statues of Aryans. The hyper-speed of Big Bang repetition inversely recreates the cosmological model of the old Universe, for everything to remain in memories, here, after the end. The sonic radiation of the album is filled with retrospective sounds of the past and breaking through the dark matter of present mechanical outrage of infernal future. The last chapter of the polar trilogy, the symbolical point - year of 2012. "The path is inside of you". 8 tracks, 43 minutes, 4-panel sleeve with a film insert. [press-release]

Shoemaker, Matt -- "Erosion Of The Analogous Eye" -- CD -- €10
2009 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 015, (ltd. 300)
The studio of Matt Shoemaker is alive with electricity. Impossibly complex wirings channel signal in and out of analog synth modules, an array of curious aluminums boxes with unmarked knobs, slinkies strung from ceiling to floor creating a set of giant spring reverb units, accelerometers attached to consumer electronic errata, and even a few conventional tools like guitar stomp boxes and a bruised computer. For all of the convoluted engineering that goes into Shoemaker's equipment, the resulting mesmerism in sound appears effortless and strangely organic... Shoemaker has enjoyed a semi-obscure career through his polymath activities that bridge such electronic experiments with a choice library of globe-trotted field recordings and a broad knowledge of avant-garde cinema. For Erosion of the Analogous Eye, Shoemaker waves his hands about his laboratory to construct an ever-evolving album for mutant dronemuzik. His electrical seas of synthetic bristling undulate with placid regularity, only to find Shoemaker contorting these brain-melting psychedelics into cancerous, atonal bellows. Out of his allotropic shifts, one can find swells of irradiated static transform into the graceful chime of temple bells; and electrical phase patterns slip into deep forest murmurings dotted with narcoleptic birds calls. On one hand, this album is prescient of the revival for progressive electronics currently underway in the flood of US post-noise projects; it's easy to triangulate this between Emeralds and Heldon. But on the other hand, Erosion of the Analogous Eye is the continuation of where Shoemaker had begun with his early work on Trente Oiseaux with its grotesques exaggerations of field recording into this beguiling piece of art... The artwork on Erosion of the Analogous Eye features unique hand-dyed abstractions mounted onto letterpressed paper. This has warranted a very small pressing of 300 copies. [press-release]

Symbols and colours... In beautiful sound of French language and military atmosphere, in clear sound of acoustic guitar and various percussion all these themes crop out and become a normal reality again in this album of "A man with iron heart". 13 tracks, 50 minutes, 6-panel DIY-made digipak.

Spiracle -- "Ananta" -- 2 CD -- €14
2009 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 017, (ltd. 300)
Hitoshi Kojo (aks Spiracle) professes to have some difficulties in falling asleep. When sleep comes to him, it can often arrive at dawn, when the colors of the sun begin to break through the darkness of night and when some are just rising after their own good night's sleep. Ananta is a twin set of compositions that urge the listener toward a dreamless sleep-state, while reflecting the glowing warmth of a blossoming sunrise. In constructing the two variations of Ananta, Kojo began with finely tuned drones extracted from a Dilruba and a Sarangi, and applied a process of merging sympathetic field recordings and other tonal interferences alongside those instrumental sounds. The resulting pieces are elliptically static drone compositions that brightly shimmer with hues of gold, crimson, and aquamarine... One of the two variations of Ananta was published back in 2006 as a micro-edition CDR through Mystery Sea. In composing the Mystery Sea version, Kojo purposefully eschewed the representational sounds of the "Night Ocean Drones" espoused by the label, opting for these aforementioned concepts. On this piece of tiny churning textures streaming along a linear path, Kojo's piece nearly achieves infinity, which happens to be the translation from Sanskrit of "ananta." While other works from Kojo enjoy the darkly elegant arches found in select recordings from Organum and Lawrence English, the Mystery Sea Version of Ananta fits more of the tradition of the Roland Kayn, Yoshi Wada, and Charlemagne Palestine in constructing pieces which require endurance, lest you succumb to Kojo's audio hypnosis. The Strato Version of Ananta is a previously unreleased composition, that bends and undulates around a fundamental drone, all the while still maintaining the sun-flecked glints magnified in the Mystery Sea version.

Spoonbender 1.1.1 -- "Stereo Telepathy Academy" -- CD -- €10
2006 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 006, (ltd. 333)
At the beginning of the first 'transmission' of Stereo Telepathy Academy on November 3rd, 2004 - a performance where the group supported Genesis P-Orridge's PTV3 - 1.1.1's Dustin Donaldson announced that "tonight's Spoonbender 1.1.1 show is governed by chance operations and the 'third mind' technique. Spoken text was taken from one film, overlayed onto images from another film, and the score was composed while viewing a third (and secret) film source. The synchronistic results appear to be intentional." Such was the strategy of Duchamp's pieces nearly a century ago; but Spoonbender 1.1.1's collision of artforms also employs the technique found in the William S. Burroughs / Brion Gyson classic The Third Mind. As the images of David Cronenberg's rarely seen film Crimes Of The Future flickered, Spoonbender 1.1.1 radiated an inverted telekinetic minimalism of undulating tones supporting the third piece of the puzzle: spoken text from Cronenberg's Stereo, a faux-documentary detailing a surgical procedure for the advancement of telepathic communication. The result: a sort of 'Wizard Of Oz / Dark Side Of The Moon' for the mimetic engineering mindset... The same principles and elements apply for Stereo Telepathy Academy, the group's long-awaited debut studio recording. [label info]

Spreu & Weizen -- "Gott Erhalt's. Roman Edition" -- CD-R -- €14
2010 UFA Muzak, UFA 37, (ltd. 100)
Martial / Neoclassic. The reissue of the best album of the German duo S&W is dedicated to honour the great European thinker - baron Julius Evola. His imperial superhuman ideas inspire those "last" people who still consider the traditional principles unbreakable. And martial industrial music scene honours his writings and contribution in the new conservative mentality against total bourgeois order. Steeping deep in the musical epic fields of the Aryan project we see a marching Roman column with a raised fascia, and through the rumble one can hear the roaring cry: "Going to death, we hail you!" On this album you'll find the rattling explosive martial with tragic neoclassic in vein of Von Thronstahl with lots of epic samples. "Romans had clear and aristocratic vision of the afterworld, very close to the spirituality of the "Olympic" type common for the period of all the great Indo-European civilizations. They did not fear death. They believed great men and heroes would have the priviledge of godlike and bright immortality..." - Julius Evola. 11 tracks, 60 minutes, pro-CDR, cardboard A5 sleeve + insert. [press-release]

Nordic Industrial/Combative Noise. There will be a day when some books will be burnt, and other rewritten. It will be a different language, of different people, not understandable for us, something completely non-verbal, related to the highest form of communication. When this language will sound, the mind will be silent, but the sense will come right into the heart. Noise is also a language, a different text, possible prototype or an echo, an attempt to transfer the knowledge to another level, to understand Thule. In ideological and musical ways the release of the new project from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, continues the line started by the first act - UFA01 ANTARKTIDA - the concentration of the Northern emanation: rough noisewaves, cryptographic industrial, technocratic power ambien.

W.A.R. (Projectile of the Simon) -- "Symphony #1" -- CD -- €5
2003 RZM Records, 001/03
Projectile W.A.R. is a blind movie in military march rhythm where main musical instruments are the implements of hot murder: MG-34 & 42, MP-38, 98-K, FLAK-41, etc. Mortars and artillery are alternated with sonorous ricochets against antitank blocks and fortifications. Soul freezing evacuation in hospital train under the enemy's cross-fire, tedious peripeteias of battle till the last shell turn into joy of long-awaited victory. In the history of music such experiments are known in Europe since 18th century. At that time orchestra sounded to the accompaniment of artillery. There was an interesting technique of teaching in Bad Tolz SS officers training school. They were took out to the range where they had to define by ear the type of the arms, quantity and place of dislocation of the enemy and take appropriate measures on it. W.A.R.ning: during the concerts or CD listening it's possible to feel such side effects as aggressiveness and desire to entrench yourself deeply. People occupied with potentially dangerous activities should be careful. These actions intensify with simultaneous alcohol drinking. [label info]

Waldron, M.S. / Steven Stapleton / Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson / Jim Haynes / R. K. Faulhaber -- "The Sleeping Moustache" -- CD -- €10
2006 Helen Scarsdale Agency, HMS 007, (ltd. 1700)
M.S. Waldron may be best known for his work as irr. app. (ext.), an unwieldy moniker that begets uncanny, hallucinatory sound. Steven Stapleton is the genius behind Nurse With Wound, the consistently unpredictable project that scrambles musical obsessions for krautrock, surrealism, and avant-garde composition into a brash quest for expressionism through experimentation. Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson hails from the Icelandic electro-absurdist duo Stilluppsteypa, which continues to investigate the finer points of drunken minimalism. Jim Haynes prefers to merely state that he rusts things. R.K. Faulhaber is something of a mysterious figure, looming around Mr. Waldron's irr. app. (ext.) recordings and performances while keeping his own work a hermetic secret... Each with a peculiar understanding of the audio arts, these five artists came to the proverbial table and thought it a good idea to collaborate. Given the predilection for the surreal and the sidereal that each of these five employ in their many audio and visual projects, those agendas oozed from the recordings that became known as The Sleeping Moustache... An epiphany of controlled disorder, a convulsion of beauty, a cascade of thought from delirious minds, The Sleeping Moustache is an exquisite manifestation of sound poetry scattered into a tortuous collage mired in an oblique melancholy. Magnetic tones extracted from the ether, mechanical sounds smeared into a lugubrious growls, horns trumpeting straight out of John's Book of Revelation, ululations sliced into information overload that Schwitters himself would be proud of. The Sleeping Moustache presents a psychically instable landscape, where dreams and nightmares wreak havoc upon the drudgery of daily life. The closest audible territory for The Sleeping Moustache might be the psychoactive constructions of Nurse With Wound's Homotopy To Marie, although the characters in this drama happened upon an entirely different map of that terrain.
