Looking for funny educative captivating short stories about Gnomes? Many intense moments around, though one of my favorite ones, occurs with the beautiful track "Articulated dolls" built on spoken words from a female moving on top of warm ambient-tones and syncopted rhythmic structures.
Also the warm and atmospheric piece titled "Interchangeable" sticks to you after the end. Excellent album. It was the album titled "Daas" that combined elements of ambient, modern classical, drone, noise and field recordings.
Next album from Machinefabriek also released on Cold Spring is titled "Vloed" Dutch word for "River" is a collection of slightly edited live performances from the period recorded in the Dutch cities Den Haag and Amsterdam.
The album consists of three live pieces and one bonus track titled "Vrijhaven" that was until now only available as a download-version.
The album opens with the piece "Allengskens" recorded live in June ; a nice and atmospheric ambient track running 18 minutes. The track is repetitive, consisting of drones primarily based on guitars and pedals. Another important part of the piece is the electronic spheres creating some dreamy overall textures.
Next piece titled "Drijfzand" running 13 minutes opens slowly with minimal high frequency sound drones that slowly builds up to halfway through the track where processed choir-samples penetrates and moves along in loop-based manners before it slowly fades out with high-pitched noises ending the track. Final piece is the titled track "Vloed" recorded live back in October at Bimhuis in Amsterdam. Another beautiful ambient-based piece built on guitar timbres waving and lulling the listener into deep trance for 22 minutes until it slowly fades away.
Astonishing album from one of Holland's most interesting contemporary ambient artists. The total entertainment package. Mathon is a trio of Pete Leuenberger, Roger Stucki and Thomas Augustiny and each of the six track they have an additional player.
There are no instruments mentioned for the players of Mathon, just for the guests. They add piano, violin, voice, and electronics. In a piece like 'Sublim', the piano plays an all important role, along with percussion sounds, field recordings and perhaps some synthesizer; I assume that's what the band does.
Together they create some atmospheric, electro- acoustic music. Its the guiding theme for the record: acoustic instruments by guestplayers are embedded in a warm bath of improvised electronics and percussion. Sometimes, such as in 'Curse', the album leaps into jazz, which wasn't my cup of tea. Sometimes its a bit too slick also, but not bad at all. Sometimes it stays close to the original, like i8u and Elektrohandel although they remove the jazz reference in 'Curse' , but the best are those who go out all the way, such as Steinbruchel's crackling, the reducing approaches of Kirschner, the full out rhythms of Digitalis and Matu and cut ups by Reber.
Actually the remixes did more for this electronic head than the originals. One Eden Carrasco on 'sax, hoses, bell, idea and production' and one Nicolas Carrasco on 'violin, objects, production, mix'. Like the band name implies they are not brothers. I see no credit for field recordings, but the fun-fair ground sounds are well present in '1', on top of which the improvisations take place. Its a curious mixture of sounds, very much on balance with each other, which makes it hard to figure out what exactly makes up the field recording and to what extend we hear some playing of instruments, since the sounds they produce might sound like those of the fun-fair, which is actually quite nice.
Again the two main instruments are part of the whole, which made me wonder more here than with the first piece actually , if both pieces weren't recorded live as such in these environments? That could very well be the case. Both pieces last around thirty minutes, which I think is a bit long for what it is in the end, although the idea of playing along with the environment, and two quite different ones is actually very nice.
Even when a bit long. The first three releases are cassettes and the last four are CDR's. The CDR itself is painted by aerosol, to give it a personal touch. They experiment with contact microphones, samples, violin, electric bass, cymbals and a so called schizophrenic devotion. Harshcore is a duo and consists of Luca Sigurta and Tommase Clerico.
Most of their releases they collaborate with other groups or individuals. The six tracks at this album are recorded in Genova in The two groups recorded four years ago in Genova? The first track starts in silence and slowly some drony tones are coming up and harsh sounds disturb little by little the quietness and ends with lots of feedback. The second song has the same structure, starts with a rhythm as if someone is walking with very strong shoes and a fine ongoing melody supports this beat.
A crackling noise takes over the noise and other electronics create a surreal soundscape. And this musical recipe has been used in all other compositions. Of course five musicians who are into experimental and harsh noise can create a huge wall of sound which is blasting your ears out of your body.
But this five musicians choose for subtlety and carefully listen to each other to make a fine balanced noise with several layers of recognizable and I do not know what kinds of sounds.
And I agree, this album is a pleasurable trip in Italian experimental noises. A small tone appears and floats away into another. Softly and gentle growing to a painfull earblasting bleep which fades away into ambient drones where feed-back is waiting to attack. Eight tracks fill this album with ambient alike noises and drones, composed with contact mics, effect pedals, mixer, and a laptop. No other instruments were used and this suprises me a lot, cause sometimes it sounds like a string synhesizer or an organ.
Other tracks are really noisy or filled with high pitched feed-backtones, like the track "Don't Listen. This album shows his diversity in styles and his aim to create intense music and for me it is a nice acquaintance. Highly recommended album I assume they no longer use the treated vinyl which was apparent on their earlier work, but I am not sure if they exclusively use the LHC sounds, or that they perhaps added some of their own sound material, these days also including radio, guitar, viola and objects.
They created five long pieces with this sound material that are best described as ambient industrial. Mood music. Atmospheric delights. Things sound more worked out here, more composed, less improvised. Still not entirely flawless, and sometimes a bit too long and spaced out, there is still room for improvement for these guys, but it seems the more they play the better it gets. Mike Orr is from Bristol and calls himself Spaces Between.
He refers to pieces as 'songs', which I always like. His songs are made with guitars and computers, but mainly guitars I should think. The computers are used to provide rhythms rather than a variety of processes, although not in every track.Nov 11, · Directed by Jack Zander, Lars Calonius.
