U62 Vanessa Rossetto | self-care CD/Digital

 

 

Obviously aside, with a very strong personal universe on the edge of sound poetry and radiophonic theater, documenting her own life within various contexts, she carves an intimate audio diary which may as well serve as a mirror for our own yearnings and questioning. Vanessa Rossetto is – simply put – a prime contemporary American composer

…self-care unfolds like a vintage flawed film and is a powerful avant-garde meditation about reflection, and the relation to ourselves…It operates like a domestic ritual…

The few proper truly musical moments make this confession even more intense, and highly reinterpretable – the voice is the guide and also the Carroll-esque rabbit’s hole…

A slow dripping acts like an opening curtain, and triggers the awakening
In the background, obscure appliances purr,
naked voices tear the morning, a conversation starts and stops, the city cries…
Tranquil sounds creep in the day, noises lurk.
It’s windy outside
Traffic serenade, radio snippets, sighs,
all eventually coalesce in punctual grandiose sound elevation
Shuffling bric-à-brac, searching for answers into the rummage,
trying to escape…
A ghost choral lures us in, and then slips away…
It’s time to care about ourselves perhaps…

U63  Thibault Jehanne | Farol CD/Digital

 

 

Seriously impressed by his previous album “Eskifjörður” on French imprint Kaon a few years back, I’ve never ceased to keep an attentive ear on Thibault’s creations…both sound artist and video maker, he’s trying through his practice to isolate fragments of time, and to spark off focused listening…
in a sort of a crossroad between motion and stillness, he seems to have found a singular space where he develops his own narratives that just transcend the moment and take us elsewhere
When I stumbled upon his page exposing his work around the 25th April in bridge in Lisbon, it immediately referred to my own fascination for this piece of architecture as a sound object, and how it inscribed itself in its environment, and kind of animated it…

…“Farol” starts like a distant siren song, a strange breathing inducing a majestic swaying…sighs of a giant steel accordion performing the ceaseless traffic…

mesmerizing staccato…continuous motion as an invitation…at some point, voices emerge, anchoring the aerial…
Water laps against metal, making it whine…

…“Farol” brings you to another shore through its alien roar, making us gaze, inspired, at the possibilities of transformation…

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.
