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

Second review addressing philip sulidae‘s “Vandemonian Verplaatsing” from the always dedicated Richard Allen for A Closer Listen. There in he points out that without real context this clever assemblage of sounds seems to map a new world of possibilities, being kind of self-fertilising as well as perhaps an apt metaphor for that feeling of constant surrounding instability  …

First report in regarding new philip sulidae‘s opus for the Unfathomless series comes from Frans de Waard (as often) with a watchful plunge into “Vandemonian Verplaatsing” where he concludes to something that exceeds the sum of its parts, and beyond the traditional field recordings approach

As promised and on the due date, quite enthusiastic to let you know that the 1st 2021 couple of brand new Unfathomless titles is available for purchase now…as I write this only 8 copies left for the special edition of the Masayuki Imanishi one – good to know perhaps if you still want to grab it…

U68 Clinton Watkins | Raaswater CD/Digital

Almost 17 years back, and under the moniker of Whitebass, Clinton Watkins carved a remarkable aural “vessel” of impressive, subsonic scope, aptly named “depth of field” for my previous Mystery Sea label…such a long time after, it’s an utter privilege to work with him again…
Clinton has a serious CV, and is the holder of a doctoral degree in Fine Arts. He’s a lecturer at both the Elam School of Fine Arts and the University of Technology in Auckland, and produces audiovisual immersive experiences for galleries and exhibitions…more recently, he has been working as a composer and sound designer for the artist collective FIELD RECORDINGS…most of all, he has been associated with the New Zealand experimental music scene for over 20 years with quite a bunch of published releases on the likes of Circle, 20 City, Claudia, Mystery Sea, CMR, Absurd among others…he also performed all over the world…

Raaswater” is a distillation of many hours of recordings made while participating to the Sonic Mmabolela 2018 residency directed by Francisco Lopez...And regarding immersion, it is indeed a particular rapture, as it succeeds in bringing out the very pulse of Life itself through a non linear rhythm acting as an almost invisible spine to the whole composition framed in 11 parts…

in “Raaswater” the liquid element is a ghost presence, rivers arms are dried up, the environment is arid, though far from dead…wind activates fences, metal clinks, hyenas yelp, white sun bleached bones crush under the soles, insects chatter, an ubiquitous daytime chant, and a nocturnal spellbinding effluence

This is an alignment with the echoing vastnessa venous earth-beatevaporation turned into imprint, a map of signs to help grasp at full extentan intoxicating inescapable lament

U69  Masayuki Imanishi | insects are CD/Digital

It’s been quite a while that I’m taken with Masayuki Imanishi‘s engrossing works. His “Levee” piece on one of the Each Morning of the World compilation curated by Stéphane Marin became the trigger to invite him…More field recordings oriented, this altered revisitation of personal familiar places uncoiled as some enigmatic movie…

Masayuki Imanishi‘s artistic path traces back to more than 10 years with notable releases on Creative Sources, ini.itu, Moving Furniture Records, Hemisphäreの空虚 and more…
His usual array of “tools” consist of paper, radio, tapes, objects, and field recordings…imbued with the japanese concepts of wabi-sabi and mono no aware, his approach is based on emphasizing the small transient subtle sounds of his close surroundings, reintroducing them in sentient reconstructions…For the Unfathomless series, he captured perfectly the spirit of summer permeating his preferred places for wandering, but not only…

On “insects are“, the focus is on the intangible, the elusive, initiating a deep communion with things…
There are rustles on each surface, and there is motion everywhere…circular figures of sound create a pervasive magnetic ambience…we enter a blooming garden of soft gestures, murmursa natural flow above which modulated fragments of playing tape quiver in unison with this universea keen plunge in the underlying

insects areunfurls a wordless tale, oozing the extra-ordinary, capturing all the flickering vibes to put us on a unique path of rediscoverya skilful reprocessing of the Real, and definitely a way within

A late report to officially announce the availability of the last couple of Unfathomless titles for 2020, although it straddles 2021 as well since Monday, December 28…
Avoid procrastinating on these, especially for both discounted philip sulidae & simon whetham bundle offers which will expire at the end of this January, or for both U66 (6 copies remaining as I type this) and U67 special editions ltd respectively to 30 & 40 copies only…

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

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…
