  1. really looking forward to this one, that preview track is utterly brilliant from eMego: Oren Ambarchi - guitars & whatnot Cyro Baptista - percussion & voice Recorded by Randall Dunn, Joerg Hiller, Iuri Oriente and Oren Ambarchi. Edited by Joerg Hiller and Oren Ambarchi at Choose Studios, Berlin. Mixed by Joe Talia and Oren Ambarchi at Good Mixture, Tokyo. Cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, Berlin. Executive Producers: Konrad Sprenger & Dick Wolf. Photography by Traianos Pakioufakis. Design by Lasse Marhaug. After a trilogy of spectacular explorations of relentlessly driving rhythms – Sagittarian Domain (2012), Quixotism (2014) and Hubris (2016) – Simian Angel finds Oren Ambarchi renewing his focus on his singular approach to the electric guitar, returning in part to the spacious canvases of classic releases like Grapes from the Estate while also following his muse down previously unexplored byways. Reflecting Ambarchi’s profound love of Brazilian music – an aspect of his omnivorous musical appetite not immediately apparent in his own work until now – Simian Angel features the remarkable percussive talents of the legendary Cyro Baptista, a key part of the Downtown scene who has collaborated with everyone from John Zorn and Derek Bailey to Robert Palmer and Herbie Hancock. Like the music of Nana Vasconcelos and Airto Moreira, Simian Angel places Baptista’s dexterous and rhythmically nuanced handling of traditional Brazilian percussion instruments into an unexpected musical context. On the first side, ‘Palm Sugar Candy’, Baptista’s spare and halting rhythms wind their way through a landscape of gliding electronic tones, gently rising up and momentarily subsiding until the piece’s final minutes leave Ambarchi’s guitar unaccompanied. While the rich, swirling harmonics of Ambarchi’s guitar performance are familiar to listeners from his previous recordings, the subtly wavering, synthetic guitar tone we hear is quite new, coming across at times like an abstracted, splayed-out take on the 80s guitar-synth work of Pat Metheny or Bill Frisell. Equally new is the harmonic complexity of Ambarchi’s playing, which leaves behind the minimalist simplicity of much of his previous work for a constantly-shifting play between lush consonance and uneasy dissonance. Beginning with a beautiful passage of unaccompanied percussion dominated by the berimbau, the side-long title piece carries on the first side’s exploration of subtle, non-linear dynamic arcs, taking the form of a gently episodic suite, in which distinctive moments, like a lyrical passage of guitar-triggered piano, unexpectedly arise from intervals of drifting tones like dream images suddenly cohering. In the piece’s second half, the piano tones becomes increasingly more clipped and synthetic, scattering themselves into aleatoric melodies that call to mind an imaginary collaboration between Albert Marcoeur and David Behrman, grounded all the while by the pulse of Baptista’s percussion. Subtle yet complex, fleeting yet emotionally affecting, Simian Angel is an essential chapter in Ambarchi’s restlessly exploratory oeuvre.

  4. Mark Clifford (Seefeel) & Scott Gordon's (Loops Haunt) collaborative project 'Oto Hiax' releases its eponymous, debut LP today on Editions Mego: Listen to track 'Eses Mitre' from the LP: Purchase 2xLP here: http://editionsmego.com/release/EMEGO-234 Purchase digitally here: https://editionsmego.bandcamp.com/album/s-t Editions Mego is proud to present the first full length release from Oto Hiax. Comprised of Mark Clifford (Seefeel) and Scott Gordon (Loops Haunt) ‘title’ follows on from last years acclaimed EP ‘One’. Embracing a series of sonic opposites ‘title’ employs electronic and concrete sound to construct a labyrinth of moods sliding from basic repetition to complex audio suites. The mood is such that the listener is advised to embrace the unexpected as unusual elements gently drift across the audio plane. Exquisitely executed, this is no foray into generic sound design but a rich and complex ruse whereby seemingly jarring sonic elements play out a subtle and harmonious bridge between a variety of musical styles and genres. Insh carries the kind of hallowed kraut comfort that only seasoned professionals can harness whereas Eses Mitre disorientates in the most enticing fashion. Oto Hiax have produced an album of exquisite detail and beauty. Now is their time.

  6. [sc5]135441751[/sc5] http://editionsmego.com/release/eMEGO-191-TA-115 I'm a big fan of Schmickler's electronic music, making academic noodles sound wicked, most likely this is not an exception
  7. "Taken from the album 'Pierres Sacrées / Hazard and Tectonics' released as LP and Download.For prepared piano, metallic plates and objects.Composed in 1989-1991" [sc5]106659923" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /][/sc5] http://editionsmego.com/release/SOMA003-1
  8. [sc5]103671130[/sc5] Unlikely guest on Editions Mego a couple of years ago, guitarist Bill Orcutt returns with his second LP there. You'd think - a guitar player, fuck off already? Well, he plays like no other. First label's LP of his - How The Thing Sings - was absolutely mind-blowing, among the most touching music i heard in many years. It was ferocious and deeply personal guitar strings bombing, and the guitar was an acoustic one. This is more laid-back, it seems, nonetheless something to look out for. http://editionsmego.com/release/eMEGO-173
  9. "The content of 'Proper Headshrinker' was first presented in public as part of the group exhibition 'Recurrence, repetition, hypnosis and ritual', curated by Paul Purgas at Färgfabriken, Stockholm, 6/12/12 – 13/01/13. In the show, right next to the speakers playing these tracks, the sentence "Like a balloon producing balloons, producing balloons" was printed on the wall in Pantone 805 fluorescent red, the same colour used on the cover of the album. As it turns out, the title of the exhibition almost feels like the perfect tagline for "Proper Headshrinker". The ten tracks in the album are unlikely techno anthems, stripped down hoovers, and deformed supersaws driven by extremely simple cyclic patterns. Ten pieces of identical length that focus on continuity, neighbourhood, and iteration, but also on sameness, insideness and outsideness." editions mego http://editionsmego.com/release/eMEGO+164 evol http://vivapunani.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Discography fact http://www.factmag.com/2013/02/07/editions-mego-announce-new-album-from-rave-deconstructionists-evol/
  10. "Ensemble Skalectrik is a side-project of Nick ‘Ekoplekz’ Edwards. Previous emissions include the self-released psycho-geographical abstraction of “Snuff Mill Tapes” and a homage to Maurizio Bianchi via Feral Tapes. Focusing entirely on spontaneous composition and one-take improvisation, Ensemble Skalectrik represents the most raw, extreme performance-based electronic music in Edwards’ repertoire." "On ”Trainwrekz”, Edwards has dusted-off his turntables, grabbed a stack of old vinyl (mainly sound effects and easy listening albums), added a selection of sound-shaping devices (filters, equalizers, loop-pedals) and proceeded to record a series of delirious, derailed sonic sketches that sound like nothing else in his rapidly expanding discography." "Ranging from the portentous pile-up of ”Wrekwahn”, the oppressive atmospherics of “Wrekfore” and the serene ornithological drift of “Wreksikz”, these half-dozen pieces document the emergence of a highly personalized form of turntablism that incorporates elements of Chance, Drone, Dub, Hauntology, Musique Concrete and Free Improvisation." editions mego http://editionsmego.com/release/eMEGO+169 ekoplekz http://ekoplekznews.wordpress.com
  11. I did a search and didn't already see a thread for this. Has anyone else checked this out? I downloaded a copy with some leftover iTunes giftcard money simply because everything I've gotten from Editions Mego lately has rocked (not counting my misguided purchase of Hecker's "Speculative Solution"; as a real student of academic philosophy, I was kinda annoyed--I appreciated the concept, but the execution was annoying). Anyway, "Off / On" is great. It's very much in the vein of '80s PBS documentaries, which was just before Brian Greene got involved and documentaries started to suck. In some ways, it strikes me as belonging on a playlist between some Advisory Circle, Emeralds, and Oneohtrix.

  13. New LP on Mego from Nick Edwards, aka Ekoplekz. Four tracks, each over fifteen minutes long: 1. Chance Meets Causality Uptown 2. (No) Escape From '79 3. Inside The Analog Continuum4. A Pedant's Progress More info on the Mego site (http://editionsmego....lease/eMEGO 145) and previews are up on Bleep (https://bleep.com/release/37446). It has been quite a prolific year for this guy. Plekzationz is maybe his fifth full length release this year alone (following Skalectrikz, Latent Acid, Mildew Riddims and Nunton Complekz) and his website hints at at least one more LP (Intrusive Incidentalz vol 2) and some others as well, possibly EPs. Looking forward to hearing him on Mego. Seems like a good fit.
  14. "Recorded in a single inspired studio session, Sagittarian Domain displaces Ambarchi’s trademark guitar sound from the centre of the mix, its presence felt only as an occasional ghostly reverberated shimmer. Endlessly pulsating guitar and bass lines sit alongside electronic percussion and thundering motorik drumming (familiar from his work with Keiji Haino) at the core of the piece, locking into a voodoo groove like Faust covering a 70’s cop show theme. The work is founded on hypnotic almost-repetition, the accents of the drum hits and interlocking bass and guitar lines shifting almost imperceptibly back and forwards over the beat as they undergo gradual transformations of timbre. Cut-up and phase-shifted strings enter around the half-way mark like an abstracted memory of the eastern-tinged fusion of the Mahavishnu Orchestra’s classic Visions of the Emerald Beyond, before returning for an extended, stark yet affecting come-down coda, equal parts Gavin Bryars and Purple Rain." http://editionsmego....lease/eMEGO 144
  15. http://editionsmego....ease/DeMEGO 026 Occlusion is a loose framework for a multi-channel, freely improvised piece of LIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC, performed without the aid or consent of pre-recorded or even pre-arranged materials of any kind. A given realization will last between 10 and 30 minutes ; time is elastic. Every effort has been made to avoid divisible rhythms (although mistakes are occasionally made) ... Still, I consider it a \"kind\" of Dance Music. These two realizations, recorded a week apart at festivals in France and The Netherlands during February 2012, capture the piece (much like those on the Generators LP) in two entirely different iterations, in states of (A) a mildly inebriated bliss & (B) an arbitrarily triggered blind rage. Both recordings were made at 24-bit, 96khz through the absolute cheapest means available to the consumer to do so. They sound fantastic. Occlusions is a companion piece to Generators in that they share the same tool-set ... however, it is the FREE JAZZ yang to Generator's MINIMALIST yin. It is not recommended to those seeking meter, melody, cleanliness, or a clearly outlined organizational sense. **** This has become my favorite release so far this year.
