U58  René Aquarius  | Woodland Sigil CD

 

This came out a bit of nowhere, and glad it did thanks to (Machinefabriek) Rutger Zuydervelt’s kind suggestion…After some impressive albums on Utech Records (“Blight”) and Moving Furniture Records (“Transmutation”), René Aquarius, also Drummer from Dead Neanderthals continues to push his technique outside of the usual rhythmic patterns by brushing an engulfing panorama based on enhanced field recordings captured in some mystic/mythic Swedish sites…

After a period of ripening, René Aquarius managed to extract the aura and specific ambience of his recent Swedish audio diary…

Woodland Sigil” is the breathing of an ancient buried land lacerated by rain…

Feel the dampness, listen to the beating heart of the dark forest, and let yourself flow into the moonlit streams..

U59  Banks Bailey | Mountains and Waters CD

 

 

After his utter intimate “The Pool”,  a descent into oneself, Banks Bailey, US patient field recordist and composer of graceful vivid soundscapes with a life of their own is back with a totally epic “Mountains and Waters”…don’t let yourself be misled by the simplistic title, as these 3 words are like a mass of huge power, an ode to a fast disappearing world…
Pure fragile beauties are lying so close at hand, and Banks make them speak volumes…

Rocks cry and crack apart, trees fall, animals in jeopardy howl their distress, water flows are like veins for a new life…

…”Mountains and Waterssounds like a legacy, a constellation of trails to follow, a collection of deep-rooted poetry and 3D teaching field recordings

U46 Haptic | ten years under the earth CD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Originating from Chicago, Haptic his essentially a trio composed of founding members Joseph Clayton Mills, Adam Sonderberg and Steven Hess… All show solid respective pedigrees…
Haptic is a flexible experimental combo initiated to perform live, often site specific material…to drift away into new hard to predict territories, Haptic usually enrolls an extra recruit…

Its music can be seen as a blend of grit minimalism and austere beauty defying easy categorization…

In this incarnation, Haptic is augmented by the presence of Tim Barnes who has recently mightily impressed us with his amazing duo with Jeph Jerman…

ten years under the earth” reclaims space through imaginary…

ten years under the earth” title is a nod to famous speleologist Norbert Casteret’s eponymous novel whispering the unspeakable charm of caving…this is what happens when 4 sensitive gentlemen gather for a rain infused “ceremony” in a old resonant Louisville cave…
only with a limited range of instruments, they totally connected with the place , absorbing its energy and vague emanations, and responding to its vibes…an incomparable volatile & transfixing experience transposed on CD medium

 U47 Banks Bailey | The Pool CD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Banks Bailey has hiked since years various wild zones and vast areas of his close surroundings to capture pristine field recordings sometimes minimally enriched by the sparse use of instruments manipulated in situ…
These sound captures are then woven into organic compositions retaining their initial spirit…Banks Bailey has collaborated among others with Darren Tate, Ian Holloway, and Mathieu Ruhlmann, and had releases out on Quiet World, Fungal, Very Quiet records, 3Leaves, and a mesmerizing drony opus on Mystery Sea…

The Pool” comes out as a very intimate portrait of an almost secret spot steeped in recollections…despite Banks ‘ lengthy career, this is debut glass mastered CD…

…”The Pool” is a meditation on end & new beginning, where inner and outer coexist…like a supernatural murmur transforming all your being…just let go, and feel the power of that unique moment…
