Opening Performance Orchestra - Radio M...

The composition Radio Music Extended, performed by Opening Performance Orchestra, draws upon the concept John Cage brought to bear in his piece Radio Music from 1956. In collaboration with the Tesla Museum in Trest, whose collections include unique exhibits of radio electronic and audio-visual devices, the 72-minute piece Radio Music Extended came into being during a private live performance in July 2018. The seven members of Opening Performance Orchestra and two alternating guests operated 13 historical radio sets, dating from between 1935 and 1961. Over the past 60 years or so, the content of the broadcast band of the airwaves has significantly changed, yet the acoustic environment has remained highly variegated, providing a novel quality of sound. Used radios at eight workstations for the performers: Empo Radio, Major 413 (1940) Tesla Jalta 28063 'T61' (1961) Bezdra Special 47 (1947) Philips 450 A-14 (1938) Tesla 420U (1956) Iron Brno, Penta (1941) Blaupunkt Ideal Radio, S6640 (1940...

Silk Saw - Nothing is Finished / Everyth...

Since the early 90's, the Belgian duo Silk Saw has pioneered nearly unclassifiable electronic music at the forefront of experimental and avant-garde. Broken rhythmics, deliquescent soundscapes infiltrated in fragmented rooms and corridors...  When the roughness of some deflagrations meets the accuracy of textures. Russell Haswell's meets Autechre ! Their 12th album is a contiguous expansion of the universe created in 'Imaginary Landscapes', the previous albumpublished on Kotä in 2015, blending sweet and bitter in languorous and enigmatic melodies that float on intriguing pounding polyrhythms. With the release of 'Nothing is Finished' on Sub Rosa, Marc Medea and Gabriel Séverin are back home, since their very first trial, 'Musique du garrot et de la feraille' - under their strange 'modern dada' alias, Jardin d'Usure - was released in 1994 (followed by the first two Silk Saw albums from 1996 and 1997).Now more than ever, without compromise, the duo makes full use of complex tools like F...

V/A - Wall Of Sound - Drones, Patterns, Noises (by Ulrich Krieger) 3CD

V/A - Wall Of Sound - Drones, Patterns, ...

Walls of Sounds is a music of sonic sensations. It is a physical and sensual approach to the phenomenon of thick sound worlds. Sound waves become physical objects, four-dimensional sonic sculptures to be experienced, bodily and mentally. Walls of Sounds is a series of CDs about music that invites the listener to indulge themselves in sound. It doesn't guide an audience through a narrative-like a song-, but offers the listener slow changing and developing soundscapes, acoustic sculptures, to immerse themselves in. How listeners moves in and through these sounds is up to them: meditative drifting along, focusing on certain small details of sounds, letting themselves be taken away by emerging psycho-acoustic phenomena or going back and forth between listening attitudes. Ulrich Kriegeris well known as a saxophone player in contemporary composed and free improvised music as well as a composer of chamber music and electronic music. His recent focus lies in the experimental fields and fring...

Oiseaux Tempete - Tlamess (Sortilege)

Tlamess (Sortilège) is Oiseaux-Tempête's first original soundtrack composed for the second feature film by critically-acclaimed Tunisian director Ala Eddine Slim (Festival de Cannes' 51st Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, BFI London, ADF Argentina, Geneva GIFF, Rome Medfilm Festival, Marrakech International Film Festival). Combining hypnotic feedbacks and synthesizer orchestral work, drifting ambient with shamanic beats, the Tlamess (Sortilège) original soundtrack was entirely improvised while watching the movie's rushes. On those sessions that took place between Mikrokosm recording studios in Lyon and Magnum Diva home studio in Paris, you find Oiseaux-Tempête's quartet core team: Frédéric D. Oberland, Stéphane Pigneul, Mondkopf, and Jean-Michel Pirès (Bruit Noir). Fully instrumental, including extended versions, and unreleased tracks, this immersive film score is also their most electronic album to date.

Oscillatorial Binnage - Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds

Oscillatorial Binnage - Agitations: Post...

Oscillatorial Binnage's Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds is an 11-track album of post-digital, post-electronic music. The recordings are deeply acoustic -- no electronic processing features anywhere. The sounds are produced by the experimental manipulation of repurposed recycled objects subjected to electromagnetic force fields. The "infinite world of the real" offers up richly unpredictable effects, with fields of vibration producing psychoacoustic flourishes, along with spontaneous, arbitrarily microtonal and harmonic compositions. Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds constitutes a series of sonic exercises based around one principal philosophy: that systems of electromagnetically-resonated physical objects can lead to complex electronic-sounding tones that emerge acoustically, progressing themselves in surprising non-linear dynamic states, providing pointers for further actions upon the objects. Techniques usually associated with electronic music, such as modulation, wave-shaping, f...

Univers Zero - Phosphorescent Dreams

Univers Zero - Phosphorescent Dreams

Available for the first time outside Japan, and on LP and CD, Phosphorescent Dreams is another epic album of symphonic schizophrenic avant-rock from Univers Zero, originally released in 2014 -- only on CD -- on the Japanese label Arcàngelo. Phosphorescent Dreams presents at the same time, in the same track, even on a single moment, the complex musical schemes and ways of Univers Zero, ranging from maximalism to minimalism, classical avant-garde with a 2020 vibe in a constant flux. In a blend of tension constantly emerging from a subtle dialogue between avant-rock and contemporary influences, harmonies and dissonance, Phosphorescent Dreams is a balanced formula of old-school know-how reshaped almost 40 years after the release of the seminal LP Univers Zero, reissued by Sub Rosa (SR 399LP, 2016).Univers Zero represents one of the longest-living bands in Belgium. It was established in 1974. Drummer Daniel Denis had the brilliant idea to gather together a team of professionals sharing the ...

A UNIQUE AND ENTERTAINING SOUVENIR FOR YOU TO TREASURE AND KEEP 'Switch on War' a dream state synthesis of nights watching live TV coverage of the 1st Gulf War, the reduction of colours to an electron midnight blue, the long periods of nothing really happening, the contrasting landscapes, (the desert, the city at night, the newsroom), the sudden hurtling through space, through a doorway, a camera on the nose of a missile, the bearing of silent witness slowly turning into complicity and mute acquiescence. At the back of the mind the thought that all this would soon be reduced to snapshot memories, archive, newsreel, history.

As a body of repertoire, these works are remarkable for their freshness of musical thought and energy (John Cage considered Wolff to be the most 'musical' of the experimental composers). In all my performances of Wolff's music i aim for interpretations that both interest and surprise me, allowing the notations to lead me to new ways of playing and thinking about music, whilst at the same time trying to lead the notations toward the unexpected.Philip Thomas Christian WolffChristian Wolff was born in Nice, France, to the German literary publishers Helen and Kurt Wolff, who had published works by Franz Kafka, Robert Musil, and Walter Benjamin.

Premiera: 15.02.2019The Noise Of Art: Works for Intonarumori contains seven compositions, created by the Opening Performance Orchestra, Blixa Bargeld, Luciano Chessa, and Fred Möpert. All the pieces relate to the theme of futurism and employ intonarumori, instruments invented and used more than a century ago by the Italian Futurists in their noise compositions. CD version includes 16-page booklet. "In antiquity, life was nothing but silence." "Today noise reigns supreme over human sensibility." The Art of Noises, pertained to the entire 20th century. Published in 1913, in response to Francesco Balilla Pratella's Manifesto of Futurist Musicians (1911), Luigi Russolo's text encompassed the fundamental ideas for the new music of the modern age. Radical ideas required original compositional approaches, as well as new types hof instruments -- hence the futurists opted for the intonarumori.

Premiera: 15.02.2019An Anthology of Greek Experimental Electronic Music 1966-2016 aspires to map the heterogenous landscape of Greek experimental electronic music in all its contextual, sociopolitical, geographical and aesthetic disparity. With a single exception: it zeroes in on post-80s music. It comprises works of very different kinds by composers of all sorts of backgrounds that, still, can be thought of, as both "Greeks" and "experimentalists". Experimental electronic music is generally expected to be highly variegated, especially when examined in a breadth of several decades, and with respect to all sorts of artistic, academic, subcultural, and other influences. What is not so obvious, however, is that the very notion of Greekness, as well as its contextual and historical offshoots, are highly diversified, too. This anthology is an attempt to map the various kinds of experimental music that has been produced by Greeks over the last few decades. More, it is also an attempt to deli...

A pupil of Iannis Xenakis and an admirer of Varèse, Dusapin studied at the University of Paris I and Paris VIII during the 1970s. His music is full of "romantic constraint », and he rejects the use of electronics, percussion other than timpani, and, up until the late 1990s, piano. He wrote 8 operas and an important pieces for ensemble and solo instrument. Here is for the first time his complete work for viola.

Kosmose - First Time Out (2CD)

Something undoubtedly cosmic but with a DIY, home-made edge: a cosmos for sure, but dirtier than clean, noisier than technology-based. All songs are unreleased. Recorded and mixed in March 1975. After some years rather cosmic and ragaesque music, we slowly began to explore some more experimental and noisy sonic expression. At the time, we only owned a few instruments and sound effects and, no drummer. We use to play long tracks in order to follow the trend of the alternative music of the period (please, remember, we are in 1975). The event was a total spectacle with an inventive light-show including a stroboscope and a frantic projection of strange abstract slides on a giant screen by Freddy Pourcel.

All pieces of the Renaissance Repertoire come from Cancionero de Colombina (around 1470) or Cancionero de Palacio (around 1510). Both sources are well known for their typical Spanish repertoire of this period. Electronic music artist Sylvain Chauveau did new versions of several tracks and added also some drones to the program. Daniel Manhart did the compilation and the additional sound design and mixing. All pieces on this CD are hardly ever performed or recorded -- a fine, sensitive, interesting crossover between early music and contemporary electronic music with a repertoire mostly unknown. Sylvain Chauveau has made solo records on labels such as FatCat, Type, Les Disques du Soleil et de l'Acier, and Brocoli: very minimal compositions for acoustic instruments, electronics, and vocals. His music has been played in John Peel's show on the BBC and reviewed in The Wire, Pitchfork, Mojo, Les Inrockuptibles, Libération, The Washington Post, and many others. One of his tracks was published ...

Christophe Guiraud - Hiera Picra Hellebores (Collection 2011-2016) [2CD]

Christophe Guiraud - Hiera Picra Hellebo...

Christophe Guiraud uses old instruments such as the Hotteterre flute, the viola da gamba, or the viola bass, and combines them with electronics. Christophe Guiraud, born in Toulouse (south of France) in the mid-seventies, lives between Brussels and Paris. His early works come from alternative rock, free jazz, and harsh noise (he released two records on Angström Records as Tellemake). His more recent pieces mix the beauty of the polyphonies of Ars Nova (XIVè century) and noise. This nonesuch hybridization creates a music easily recognizable, and at the same time harmonious and deeply intense. Christophe Guiraud composes for a few important ensembles and performers, like Ictus, Ensemble 21, Sturm und Klang, Kwartludium, Musiques Nouvelles, Fractales, Stephane Ginsburgh, and Tom Pauwels. Guiraud is regularly invited to festivals Sonar, Le printemps de Septembre, Loop, Nuits du Beau Tas et Ars musica.

Baudouin De Jaer - Lucy / Back To Normal...

This double CD release brings together two founding pieces from Baudouin de Jaer: the first volcanic concert of Back To Normal in 1991, and the first concerto of Baudouin de Jaer, "Lucy", performed in 1993. Back To Normal was a collective of visual artists, musicians, and non-musicians. "Lucy" is played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Liège. In 1993, Baudouin de Jaer wrote his first concerto for violin and orchestra. "Lucy" was premiered by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Liège under the direction of Georges-Elie Octors. Equipped with two dictaphones, Jaer steps in the dreams of half-sleeps and awakenings. Nestled in a cutting of 15 sections, the recorded ideas then slips the whole in a telescopic sound structure that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Liège propels the evening of the first in space time. Coordinated by Baudouin de Jaer, the movement Back To Normal (born in Liège, Belgium) gathered, between 1991 and 1996, a dozen artists, painters, sculptors, ironworkers, a...

Oiseaux-Tempete - Al-An!

With this ambitious project partly recorded in Beirut with local musicians and featuring Mondkopf, Charbel Haber, Sharif Sehnaoui, G.W. Sok, Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, Oiseaux-Tempête have achieved a far more complex work, richer in texture, the intertwining of acoustic elements with electronica, roaming and shaking the foundations of this almost labyrinthian personal opus of an album. As ever, the group realising both the immersive and also the total physicality on the record.File underExperimental, Stoner, Post-Rock, Ambient, Free MusicIn Oiseaux-Tempête, Frédéric D. Oberland and Stéphane Pigneul have chosen a name, a call from the sea, of almost totemic quality. First, perhaps, it offers the suggestion of journeys over great distance, the distant hymns of fortune-tellers and gravitydefying acts of the oracles.Yet at the same time, comes the idea of earthly chaos, a willing reference to the telluric frenzy that darkens the sky yet also, paradoxically, brings promise of a radiant tomorrow.tr...

Bülent Arel's (1919 Turkey - 1990 USA) work occupies a special place in the history of electronic music because one thing is certain: Arel's work is still fresh, groundbreaking, and it seems always to look out for the next adventure in sound. Released in our Early Electronic series ........................................................................................................   Bülent Arel was a Turkish-born American composer of electronic and contemporary classical music. He was also a devoted teacher, a sculptor, and a painter. From 1940 until 1947 Arel studied composition, piano, and 20th century classical music at the Ankara Conservatory.

Michel Redolfi - Desert Tracks

In 1987, Michel Redolfi hit the California Desert road during the Fall, to catch those hypothetical poly-sensorial desert tones. He visited the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, Palm Canyon and came back with an extraordinary album of early electronic music, sparse and bright to express the crude light and the divine silences. Michel Redolfi (Marseille 1951) In 1969, with the co-foundation of the GMEM, Groupe de Musique Expérimentale de Marseille, Michel Redolfi pursued his passion for electro-acoustic music at an early age. During the 80s and 90s he composed collaborative works with Luc Ferrari, Bernard Parmegiani, Pierre Henry and Jean-Claude Risset.Resident of the United States from 1973 to 1984, he carried out his research with several new music centers, including the CME at the University of California in San Diego and California Institute of the Arts.Also during this period he developed several collaborations with American composers.

Daniel Wilson's Radionics Radio project draws upon the fringe-science of radionics, with its invisible forces and psychic resonances, to spawn electroacoustic and electronic compositions employing very alternativetuning systems. Radionics' idea that thoughts can be represented as frequencies is vigorously explored on this new release through microtonal compositions which range from mutating drones to electronic sambas, with nods to Raymond Scott and Daphne Oram along the way. The Delawarr Multi-Oscillator with detector pad (1962) In 1962, Oxford's Delawarr Laboratories built their groundbreaking Multi-Oscillator instrument comprising multiple electronic tone generators. The Multi-Oscillator was the summation of all Delawarr Laboratories' acoustical research into radionics. It was a strange instrument far ahead of its time. In a process best described as 'dowsing with oscillators,' the unorthodox device was employed intuitively to select clusters of frequencies that embodied thought...

Book Of Air - Vvolk

Book Of Air - Vvolk

Inspired by the slow tempo and invisible motion of nature; how the seasons pace without sudden turns, slow and gentle. Seemingly still, yet always in motion. Book of air is a series of bundled compositions. This is the second chapter performed by 'vvolk'. Opposed to the first quintet release 'Book of Air - Fieldtone' (SRV412 2LP), the music out of the 'Vvolk' series is played by a group of 18 improvisers with roots in jazz and classical music. The group investigates performing and improvising music, in close relation to present time; what are the possibilities in playing music, when changes in this music pass by unnoticed? How do we as musicians relate to the running time of a performance? How does our hearing and memory react to these slow changes? As a result vvolk let's you experience music which is less perceived in the present time, but rather occurs in our memory of the past. This clearly challenges the improvising musicians, and makes audience and performers discover ...

Rob (u) Rang - Ofo

Contrasting directions, going from techno to modern tribal, the Rob(u)rang project deals in experimentation, repetition and the use of rhythm boxes. Gabriel Séverin initiated Rob(U)Rang in 2000, but has only released handful of albums since. Here, G. Séverin draws his inspiration from yorùbá spells (collected in Nigeria and Benin), initially designed to cure diseases or solve problems. The results resemble raw afro rock full of lively percussion (warming up the chill of drum machines), led by a possessed, trance-inducing voice.Now and then, lighter moments and dub-like surprises pop up, pleasantly cooling things down before entering the next entranced state.On this recording Gabriel is assisted by a few multi-instrumentalist friends: Xavier Klaine (Winter Family) on organs, Alain Lefebvre (Digital Dance, Durutti Column,Tuxedo Moon) on percussions, Quentin Hanon (aka Johnny Superglu, Fan Club Orchestra) on bass and guitar, Gil Mortio (Joy As A Toy, P.V.) on bass and guitar, Laurène Lar...
