Numb Silence – On The Ruins Of That Used To Be There… I’ve Found A Garbage

•09/24/2011 • 6 Comments

 

New work by Numb Silence is still going on developing his manner of composing static drone ambient pieces. This time muffled drones and industrial pulsing beats make background for religious Orthodox chants.
One long track which name consists of used samples’ titles creates intense and gloomy atmosphere of despair and fatalism.

Alister Flint– Experimentalist

•09/24/2011 • Leave a Comment

 

“Experimentalist is a composite of a few tracks, extracted from various albums. They are not really linked together by a common theme or concept. Except the attempt to put in sounds some random visions at what’s surrounding us”– Alister Flint, 2011

Mystified – Live 2011

•09/24/2011 • Leave a Comment

 

Live 2011 is a dense voyage of dark drones that frequently bump into elements of noise and industrial sounds throughout the set. This is an intense piece of music. The release is one long-form track that clocks in at 24:37 and ventures through a river of caustic opposites that tug back and forth in a continual tension and release of dark ambient edgy drones. Instrumentation for this set used no synthesizers, only some prepared sounds that were heavily processed.

Available at Ethereal Live in 24-bit flac, ogg, and mp3 to Listen or download free under a Creative Commons license CC BY-NC-ND.

Recorded live in studio by Thomas Park on September 9, 2011. Edited and Mastered by Thomas Park. All music and album art by Mystified/Thomas Park.

Sam Nacht / Leo Bettinelli / Gustavo Lucero – Dopamine

•09/24/2011 • Leave a Comment

 

Sam Nacht:
Having studied several instruments both formally and self-taught, in ’99 Sam narrowed it down to the tenor saxophone, taking private lessons with Juan Ignacio Caino, Luis Nacht (no relation) and eventually Evan Parker. His interest in music lead him to study Electroacoustic Composition at the University of Quilmes (2000-06). A few years later he started teaching privately and then between 2006-09 at St. George’s College, Quilmes. By now he also plays a little clarinet, flute and trombone, regularly combining these acoustic wind instruments with the digital and analogical sound processes granted by the present music scene. He has developed these resources here in Argentina, as well as in Chile, Brazil and Europe, in stylistic contexts that range from jazz to noise, flirting with classical music, performing in intimate duets and riotous ensembles and even in sober and streamlined orchestras. The underlying motif throughout all of this music, however, has always been an inevitable component of improvisation and experimentation. Today, he improvises regularly in the underground scene in Buenos Aires.
His musical experience, nonetheless, has always been complemented by his theatrical beginnings. In 1998 he graduated in the Honours School of Drama from Manchester University, having participated as an actor, director and author in festivals in Edinburgh, London and Sao Paulo. He then worked as a technician in the Teatro del Sur in Buenos Aires (1999-2000). At the beginning of the millennium, his work in the music theatre company Mute turned out to be one of the most rewarding niches in which to make the most of all the accumulated musical and theatrical interests and experiences.
In addition to his artistic facet, Sam also works backstage with the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (since 2006), the Buenos Aires International Festival, and as cofounder he also runs the eclectic nocturnal events of Niños Consentidos (Enfants Terribles/Spoilt Brats –both in Buenos Aires and Barcelona) and the weekly special Lunes/Martes sin Sentido (Nonsense Mondays/Tuesdays).
Due to his English nationality and bilingual nature, Sam also works as a freelance translator and interpreter, with special emphasis on collaborating with Argentine production companies.

Leo Bettinelli, starting from improvisation and the use of objects and unconventional instruments, he delved into a world of sound of practically endless possibilities, nearing the musical subconscious, which he then incorporated into his life, both as a performer as well as the organizer of several series of experimental music concerts in different venues in Buenos Aires and Barcelona, where renowned musicians both from the local and international scene were invited to participate.
He has released independently 8 albums of experimental music as well as using the same approach in popular music, where he released two more as producer and performer: a reggae album (Sien Volando) and an electropunk album (Karmanoise). All of these and many other pieces have also been performed live.
Having come to Europe he also developed his work as a photographer and performer, having participated in several art festivals and photography exhibitions, sharing his work in all three fields: music, photography and performance.
At present he also organizes the experimental and interdisciplinary festival “Niños Consentidos Barcelona”. (www.ninosconsentidos.es)

Gustavo Lucero Adorador de las sutiles resonancias a las que estamos lanzados a veces apenas concientes, en sus collages, improvisaciones y puestas sonoras, busca unir lo más escondido de aquellas vivencias cotidianas con el múltiple caudal de estilos de cuya agua es esponja. Desde intervenciones de guitarra sobre tramas electrónicas hasta ejecuciones de instrumentos acústicos con intervenciones digitales, muchos son los elementos que formaron parte de sus participaciones en puestas teatrales (Salud, Orejas caídas y hocico casi cilíndrico, Kafkaesk, La cuestión del deseo, La gran ausencia, La realidad y el deseo, Canto de sirenas), cine documental (La hormiga roja), danza (Esquina, Anorma) y video arte (Patchinka). Es de Buenos aires. Comenzó a estudiar guitarra siendo niño, pasando más tarde por algunas bandas (El Mal Paso – La Diabla – Cosmic Jaja), para luego comenzar a abordar la composición a veces a través y a veces a partir de medios electroacústicos y electrónicos. Actualmente trabaja en la música y diseño sonoro de la puesta en escena de “El gigante Amapolas y sus formidables enemigos”.

Ainm-Zero Spring

•09/24/2011 • Leave a Comment

 

Ainm is a downtempo and electronica-oriented one-man project launched in 2005 by Moscow composer and musician Ilya Kovalev (now living in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom). Ainm (which simply means name in Irish) follows the style that could be roughly described as historical electro, a combination of computer music techniques with strong interest to historical musical forms and aesthetics.

At the same time, Ainm prefers to stay away from both thumping dance beats and naive New Age-esque attempts to perform medieval/ethnic music in a contemporary way. Although he likes to use certain authentic elements in his music, such as alternative tuning scales, timbres of early instruments, bits and pieces of medieval music theory, he deliberately avoids any stylisations and performs only original material.

New EP “Zero Spring” of the Russian-British project is focused on the idea of rest, stasis, end of journey, which in ritual and sacramental reality can turn into new beginning. The trademark mixture of electronic and acoustic elements now makes the grade with the bulk of sounds being of natural origin, treated and processed electronically to produce a peculiar, somewhat dark and spicy, sonic palette.
