U66 philip sulidae | Vandemonian Verplaatsing CD/Digital

So enthusiastic to welcome again Philip Sulidae in the Unfathomless catalog. When he’s at the helm, one knows the audio-journey will be multilevelled, rich, and replayable ad infinitum. With several years of practice, his very specific brew of musique concrete tinted field recordings, and vast array of assemblage techniques and recording methods always lead to the advent of complex, riveting sound pieces challenging and enlarging our perceptive threshold
On “Vandemonian Verplaatsing“, he kind of exorcises his recent move from Australia (Sydney), to Tasmania (Hobart) by sketching an intangible map, a ghost psycho-cartography questioning reality through displacement. Layers end up blended, distorted, remodelled to form a new language of strange scriptures and spectral traces. Emerges a quasi tactile landscape abounding in life, faint signals, indecipherable fragments condensing in a beaming mass of energy aural projections…

…”Vandemonian Verplaatsing” could be about making junction between your own fictive spaces and real visited places – a way of sublimating, escaping the grinding daily routine…

Stir the dust, feel the air around, learn from the accidents and this uneven but so fertile ground

U67 simon whetham | dry CD/Digital

After close to 10 years since “mall muzak” (U07), and looking how far he has come in sound exploration, we could only secretly hope for Simon Whetham‘s return in the Unfathomless series, and this is the day ! It’d be far too long to expose Simon’s curriculum vitae, or try to give a complete overview of all what he has been involved in so far. Unrepentant traveller in the pre-Covid years, he has honeyed his sound art into contact with the world, ever questioning his own sound practice. Always in love with the raw sound phenomenon itself, he hunts down less apparent sonic features, often examinating them within a site-specific context. More recently, he he has shown a lot of interest in dismantling daily, disused objects, and manipulating their components to extract sonic traces, the aura of sounds itself.
on “dry“, beyond the man/nature confrontational aspects, and environmental implications, Simon invites us to step into the physical properties of water under artificial hydraulic conditions.
At times soft, subdued, then virulent, the experienced flow is highly dynamic, full of transitions, tonal disruptions, coalescing in a sort of semi underground litany of vibrational resonances fed on metallic sighs, matter against matter rubbings…a clearly invigorating trip where the loss of landmarks and disorientation leads to a paradoxical self-consolidation

Following the flux and its delineations becomes rapidly a magnetic occupation of re-centering
From the open to the closed, we adapt our reality, remembering the force of life, feeling stronger…

“dry” pushes you, sets you literally in motion – a revitalizing soundtrack

U36_Andrea Borghi_Fuochi Rituali di San Giuseppe_frontmini

 

In an attempt to absorb some serious delays due to releases piling up, Massimo Ricci has started to develop some very short haiku-like reviews of older titles in his main vehicle for sharing his impressions, the Touching Extremes platform – here, he throws some very appreciative words on U36 Andrea BorghiFuochi Rituali di San Giuseppe“, describing it like a detailed “grower” crawling under your skin and ears

 

 

Just a reminder to let you know that the second pair of Unfathomless titles for 2020 is actually available since Wednesday, August 19…
Don’t dawdle too much, especially for the discounted Ludovic Medery bundle offer which will expire on August 31, or for U65 in its ultra ltd edition
version (only 8 copies remaining as I write this)…

U64 nicola di croce | 47AD CD/Digital

 

 

With a particular sensitivity towards urban vistas probed through the sonic prism, and its faculty to boost our level of general awareness, nicola di croce, both architect and sound artist, and with a serious academic pedigree, certainly knows how to make us go underneath the veneer…
In the wake of his quite impressive collaboration with Enrico Coniglio, “Mergariam” on Flaming Pines, he had the excellent initiative of submitting “47AD” to me. Definitely more rural in a way, although still concerned with the intricate interactions between outside and inside, being it the examination of the sound spectrum generated by the fermentation broth within metal tanks of an old vineyard in the region of Treviso.

…”47AD” depicts an enclosed muffled world of its own,
an amniotic drift acting like an access key to the levels of our Unconscious,
along a clearly perspective changing, transforming process

Drips, bubbling, spinning mash evoking some sort of circular ritual,
interacting with the gibberish external half echoed words of passing workers or visitors…
On this substrate, a cluster of sedating, calming tones slowly envelop the listener,
not numbing him, rather exacerbating his acuity…

Like witnessing the emergence of a brand new microbiotaa strong affecting experience

U65 Ludovic Medery | Les pierres sèches CD/Digital

 

 

After his previous acclaimed “eMERgences”, a unusual seaside excursion with many tangents, the versatile Belgian sound artist, Ludovic Medery is back with a gripping “fiction sonore” permeated with the invisible presences oozing from an abandoned factory…As a constant traveling, explorer of sounds, lato sensu, Ludovic is still situated at the boundaries of musique concrète, field recordings, improvisation, and electronic manipulation, paying great attention to the objects and immediate surroundings…

“Les pierres sèches” let the walls speak unique tones, capturing the reflections of past lives…
Everything is contained within the Now…
A train passes like wind, a bell resounds like an alertness signal…

Small gestures build their own stories…short jolting percussive sequences activate metal, assembling seemingly disparate fragments…
The flowing ruptures free unheard of layouts under which things are allowed to breath more, whipping the air, embroidering within the gaps…
Birds sing undisturbed, sticks & child games draw memories, delineating a new living space…

“Les pierres sèches” is an inclusive ceremony that won’t leave you intact…totally inviting…
