Massimo Ricci in his own particular way of making words dance, unfolds his vocabulary around the murky audio-diary of “being there“, seeing it as an exercise in the Now and the varied territory of how things around you get sensed beyond being the reflection of a moment

After the initial rush of pre-orders, and first orders which came in all together, some time finally to officially spread the news that Leo Okagawa and grisha shakhnes titles are indeed well available since October 11 (regular editions) and October 17 (special editions)…

tremendously thrilled thus to present you these 2 strong works :

pls check initial details by clicking on the images here below

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.

U56  brb>voicecoil  | reclaim CD

 

Quite a few shivers here to present you this thundering contribution to the Unfathomless series from brb>voicecoil, alias of Kevin Wilkinson, a Newcastle Upon Tyne  offspring and long time figure of experimental music, and steersman behind both Muza muza, and MUZZeDIA VERHEAD labels…
A constant in his approach has been the uncompromising attitude, and a Musique Concrète spirit, as well as a total devotion to the in-depth manipulation, dismantling/recomposition of sound, as well as some matching lo-fi hypnotic graphic dressing…
brb>voicecoil soaks up parts of a selected surrounding,  interacts with it, breaks its code, and then “regurgitates” it under new forms without betraying its essence…
Deconstruction, reconfiguration, re-processing are all key operations to reach a baffling result that keeps stirring us in unexpected ways…

On “reclaim”, brb>voicecoil excoriates blind sprawl, and leaves the last word to Nature.

reclaim” is the statement of an environmental failure, and an attempt in putting the pieces back together…

Be transported in transitional zones where conflict between impermanent rash human-built and avenging nature generates elevating coming and going aural frictions and rubbings…

A  world of enhancing scoriae & cyclic englobement, infused with the ghost of Small Cruel Party

U57  Jared Sagar | Tombland CD

 

 

After his much acclaimed enigmatic seaside “Holme” of 2017, Jared Sagar, prolific and versatile UK composer, is back with “Tombland”…Much concerned with the careful shaping of sounds, Jared processes them like a potter or a painter, sketching out many versions until a conclusive form starts to appear…
Despite its slightly sinister overtone, “Tombland” isn’t actually about an ancient burial site, but comes from two Old English words meaning “open ground” or “empty space”…by exploring this little medieval town at the very heart of Norwich, Jared is seeking thus for potentials of emergences

Winds become whispers, air conditioners sing, tiny amplified sounds unfold their own tales…all merge within a grainy flowing collage murmuring a shadowy excursion…

…”Tomblandsummons up invisible presences, delivering another sentient soundmontage breathing with a life of its ownan awakening trek
