U70 philippe neau | étang donné CD/Digital

Coming across philippe neau‘s global aesthetic universe and his penchant for creating new fictional spaces from various visual/sound sources and materials gradually encouraged me to consider a contribution of him to the Unfathomless series…philippe neau is a plastic artist and teacher as well as a painter. He has several exhibitions, installations under his belt, and quite an array of soundworks on various labels such as Attenuation Circuit, Plus Timbre, Sonospace, to name but a few…

étang donné” has been shaped as clay on a potter’s lathe in a ritualistic sort of way, a kind of exorcism of a familiar place wandered so many times…a pool caught in a loop

étang donné” is the result of circular walks, many superimposing sketches and solid notes transmuting in a genuine aural painting…Equipped with some light recording device (mainly his phone !), philippe neau lets the surrounding nature sink in.

étang donnémakes us fade away into the tiny details of the environment, in touch with it, breathing the stones, soil, puddles and grass in, leading us on paths of remembrance…complicit murmurs, twigs in the breeze, rustles declinations, the pool becomes a transfixing mirror of our own reiterations and frailtiesa soft, yet confounding ambulation

U71  juan josé calarco | poleas CD/Digital

Along the years, I’ve never ceased to be impressed by juan josé calarco‘s meticulous, vivid, absorbing soundscapes, and after so long, and 2 previous albums in the Unfathomless series, I’m singularly pleased to welcome him back for another long anticipated album.

I won’t be exhaustive regarding his career – suffice to say, he has been a cornerstone of the local Argentinian experimental music “scene” as co-curator of the so inspiring field recordings oriented Impulsive Habitat label, and the figurehead of Papaki Records, as well as having many releases (both solo and collaborations), all of which stamped with his distinctive auditory qualities…These unique qualities rely on an uncommon sentient aptitude for magnifying the invisible, the elusive, the hidden

poleas” focuses mainly on a specific railway section, and its close environment, encapsulating motion itself, capturing the surrounding air charged with untamed electricity, obscure signals and interferences

poleas” unfolds mostly horizontally, feeding itself on the audio dregs of all surfaces, nooks, passages along the way, with trains & carriages striking through space in frictional tones along rattling fences in semi industrial/housing zones…A brooding chant of volatile energies, buzzes and nascent rhythms, against a backdrop of ghostly communications, indecipherable vibes and electromagnetic pulses

poleas” is a key to unlock our often numbed senses, reach unexpected levels of perception and unveil subworlds

U60  Leo Okagawa  | something veiled CD

 

 

Really excited to introduce you to this opus made by the ever promising and increasingly present Tokyo-based sound artist, Leo Okagawa. Absorbing sounds from meticulously studied environments, he reproduces them in a poetic, sensitive way, through collages, either pure or manipulated with electronic tones and analog noise.

something veiled” has been crafted from a cycle of many drafts to reach the desired pertinence with the fertile ground of sounds captured in limestone caves in the Fukushima region…

Experience a raw yet refined descent into the recesses of dark caves, within the flow and the small runoffs, at the very heart of the elements themselves

Felt, beyond words, this is a tactile aural exploration trying to catch moments of strange, lurked, indefinable beauty

A vital flux which grows in you and brings you progressively at a new level of perception

U61  grisha shakhnes | being there CD

 

 

After much anticipation, I’m extremely proud here to be able to add this jewel to the Unfathomless growing corona of artists…I’ve followed Grisha Shakhnes with eager attention since his early steps under the “Mites” moniker, and his universe never ceases to amaze me in many senses. Under musique concrète mechanics and manipulation of analog tapes and environmental recordings, he manages to stir up a highly personal sound world where subtle shifts occur letting emerge a narration of interstices and obscure mystery

Haunting displaced music in touch with the unspoken

being there” is probably his most daring and ambitious work to date…

Evolving rotating patterns tinted by outside occurrences arouse a mutual seeding…

Within the groove, always in the Now, eroded mutating loops constantly reshape our reality…

An inescapable bewitchment of rugged forms culminating in a new writingclearly an entrance to something else

Perhaps, close in spirit to Jeph Jerman, and masterfully brought into relief by A.F. Jones.
