    Opal Tapes

    Anyone check out Opal Tapes? Considering getting one of their newer releases. http://opaltapes.bandcamp.com/
  3. So, Wood Between Worlds has started putting up the Autumn Harvest tapes, a batch of cassette and digital releases. The full set can be grabbed here, and the individual releases are described below. Spiricom - Spiricom Imposing soundscapes, walls of distortion, arresting drones, haunting vocal loops: these sounds and more coalesce on Spiricom's debut cassette release, resulting in a strikingly cohesive and unique album. Taking influence from other genre-defying artists like Ulver, Leyland Kirby, and Current 93, these tracks utilize various styles - echoing tribal and dub techno on "Incantations" or harkening the deep ambient electronic compositions of Tim Hecker or Ben Frost on tracks like "Overpasse" and "By Myself and Others." Ryan Harris - Endless Shadows Horror, suspense, and enthrallment of cinematic scope. Throbbing synth pulses, hypnotic beats, and enchanting melodies woven together by Ryan Harris. Endless Shadows' sound and vision is a tribute to the scores of John Carpenter and the discography of the label Italians Do It Better. All music was recorded back in 2010, and unearthed in 2014. All improvisational recording live on various synths with no overdubs. Rorqual - sei/ci Rorqual is an ambient project inspired by the Chopped & Screwed movement. The slowing, repetition, improvisation, and cassette/mixtape/lo-fi aesthetic that was integral to the sound of DJ Screw and many other purveyors of the movement is here taken to an extreme and twisted into ambience where only the ghosts of rappers and beats remain. Full disclosure: Rorqual is my (side) project, so I'm obviously invested in that. But no matter, the Ryan Harris and Spiricom releases are both very good. Far outshine my stuff. Definitely give those albums a listen.

  5. Eight months ago, a series of mysterious messages were exchanged in the bowels of WATMM, initiating a collaboration which would lead to the creation of a double debut EP, which will be released on the 12th of April in sexy DIY cassette format. We are proud to present: This screen-printed yellow tape comes in a handmade box, with dual-sided artwork, and an insert providing tracklisting and information, all lovingly handcrafted with a DIY approach. On the cassette, you will find 40 minutes of fresh music from Antape and Kotekan, in the form of two 20 minute debut EPs. 14 tracks seeping with synthesizer screams, lush ambient soundscapes, off-kilter beats, cubist compositions, and very square waves, this release spans through a great variety of unconventional and imaginative modern age computer music. [sc5]83629112[/sc5] Primitive Silly Music, composed and produced by Lucas Magnat (Antape), is the result of almost five years of experiments, which lead the self taught musician to create those jerky beats and caustic melodies, sure to gratify any music lover seeking an engaging and exciting experience. With a pronounced taste for surfing on the edge of control, Antape's work on this release is a monument to controlled chaos and digital primitivism. [sc5]83631894[/sc5] Nocturne Pillar is a set of tracks that Seth Weaver (Kotekan) composed and produced from ages 16 to 20, always with a strong visual image in mind, and an aim to create organic, emotional pieces with a feeling of place and atmosphere. Etherial synths and strange samples mix with hard hitting rhythms and tight leads, as Kotekan draws themes from classical, world, and early electronic music, in an attempt to create a compendium of musical short stories. This release is affiliated with the recording studio Roy de Rats established in Leipzig, Germany. Along with music recording, this studio runs a cassette tape production including mastering, duplication, and possibly printing on tapes with the silk screen method. Both physical and digital options are available with this release. Cassettes will be strictly limited to 100 copies, and will cost €4 within Europe, and $5 in the US (postal charges excluded). They'll be sold on the official page via convenient Paypal buttons. Digital copies are individual for both EPs separately, and are hosted on Bandcamp (pay-what-you-want).

  6. For the OCD music collectors, Just curious. I've done the loosely alphabetical for the longest time (like all the A's get throw in together etc etc) but i've gotten lazy recently and have just been throwing them back in a pile after listens and kinda want a new way of doing it. While the way i had it is great for looking for very specific stuff - i feel like i ignore like 75% of my collection because I mainly forget about them? How do you have yours and why?
  7. New podcast: MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH... Kees Tazeelar. Part I Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/memorabilia_kees_tazeelar/capsula Playlist: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20130311/Memorabilia_Kees_eng.pdf Produced by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Rubén Patiño For several years, Kees Tazelaar (1962) has been the head of one of Europe’s most important electroacoustic music archives, but he shies away from the label collector. As he explains, his interests are informational rather than exclusive, and he has more of an archaeological urge than an urge to completion. Tazelaar's artistic and academic career is closely linked to the prestigious Institute of Sonology in the Netherlands, one of longest-running research and production hubs on the European electroacoustic music scene. The Institute, which has been based at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague since 1986, was born from the ashes of the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven in 1967, and inherited an extensive collection of tapes by electronic music pioneers in the Netherlands. As a result, the archive is an interesting snapshot of the burst of activity and experimentation that took place mid-century – not just in the Netherlands but also in many other studios around the world – under the auspices of universities and private labs (Bell, IBM, Philips), during a fascinating period of transition in which industry research into acoustics mingled with the early milestones of electronic music. A composer and teacher (lecturer in Sonology since 1993 and Director of the Institute since 2006), Kees is also known for his work on the restoration and conservation of essential works of twentieth century electronic music. He has participated in reconstructions of works by Gottfried Michael Koenig, Jan Boerman (who taught him composition), Iannis Xenakis, György Ligety and Luctor Ponse, although his star project remains Edgar Varèse's 'Poème Électronique'. As an artist, restorer, administrator of the Sonology archive, and an expert in all things related to the history of the legendary 1958 Philips Pavilion, in this interview Tazelaar discusses the challenges of restoration, the limits of intervention and the concept of artistic responsibility in reconstructions, the importance of the medium and its maintenance, and digitalisation. And although he inevitably ends up circling back to the word collection every now and then, there’s no doubt that he uses it in the open rather than restrictive sense. Tazelaar’s approach is ultimately pedagogical, closer to the test tube or the microscope than the butterfly net or auction house. As we can see from ambitious restoration projects such as 'Popular Electronics: Early Dutch Electronic Music From Philips Research Laboratories' (1956 - 1963), his 2004 four-CD project that unearthed forgotten and unreleased works by the pioneers of early Dutch electronic music, Tazelaar does not stop at creation and dissemination, he also sets up links between generations which would otherwise probably remain cut off from each other. You can find the complete series here: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/memorabilia_tag/ You may also be interested in the following podcasts: MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH... Kenneth Goldsmith.

Wolfgang Ernst reflects on the possibility of going beyond the concept of the archive by exploring some of the practices around what is now being called the 'anarchive'.

    Blue Six - Kellar

    blue six Kellar C62+C25+download code http://bluetapes.co.uk/product/blue-six-kellar Kellar are a two-piece free rock band from Brighton, comprising the rhythm section of drummer Andy Pyne (Thurston Moore, Shrag, Medicine & Duty) and bassist Dan Cross. They have a new album - Fulminant, their fourth in total since forming in 2011 - out now. However, this release is not that album. This is a two-tape collection of pieces from the original three-piece line-up of the group, featuring founder member and guitarist/synthesizerist David McNamee. The gold tape consists of original improvisations by the trio - first take, no overdubs, no preparation - worked together in a manner that roughly approximates their chaotic live sets of the time (by turns incoherent and transcendent), while the metallic red tape features new reworkings of the trio's recordings by their contemporaries: Bobby Whirlwind, Rysic Cygo, Mild Horses, Eighth House, Negative Pegasus, Court of Hidden Faces. Praise for Kellar: “This sprawling LP is the definition of great improv noise rock. It’s a deliriously stunning debut from one of 2012′s best new bands.” - Noise For Zeros “Kellar come up with a right racket that possesses that sense of elation and narrative into a psychedelic nothingness reminiscent of Skullflower or Spacemen 3.” - Terrorizer “Beloved Dean of Magic is a dense electrical storm of sound, impenetrable and cryptic, opaque and impervious to structure. Noise reigns supreme… Kellar do not exist to provide relief, they aim to confuse and challenge the very nature of our perceptions of music.” - Mudkiss “Blistering guitar noise oscillating within some aggressive rock riffage cycled through kaleidoscopic variations in a concrete wall of pounding metallic magma. Electronic emissions induce astral projections as you blast off to the furthest reaches of time into a swirling void and are torn into a sea of particulate matter. Play it loud!” - KFJC “For those of you who do like it noisy and who like improv that flows between freefall and structure, then this should be for you. Kellar throw almost everything at the listener. It’s as though they are throwing down the challenge to see who wants to stick it out. 4/5” - Echoes & Dust
  9. blue four Laurent Chambert/The Fractal Skulls C20+C25 Sample + buy here! Laurent Chambert is a French visual artist and composer who has been creating beautiful and unusual art since 1990. His installations are playful, thought-provoking and visually-arresting. As a musician he has been involved in several acclaimed projects, the most recent of which is the electronic duo The Other Colors. Laurent’s submission to Blue Tapes is When The Cat Is Away The Mice Will Play. In his solo work, Laurent combines field recordings with flickering patterns of electronic sound that are both grid-like and strangely euphoric. Like the brilliant Italian producer Lorenzo Senni/Stargate, some of his work almost feels like a stripped-down-to-the-bare-atoms reading of techno. At other times it feels pastoral and immersive. Always, Laurent’s music is intrinsically ‘plugged-in’ to his environment, whether it’s the bustling cityscapes of Paris described by When The Cat... or the wells of ambient silence in his improvisations recorded in the French countryside. We’ve parcelled Chambert with a similar electronic sound artist, Chris Smith of High Wycombe, England. A studio engineer by day, Chris makes delicious minimal synth-structures under the name The Fractal Skulls. Influenced by the god-twins of John Cage+Steve Reich and Cluster+Harmonia, the music of The Fractal Skulls is unashamedly pretty, full of clockwork-like analogue pulses and holy repetition. Praise for blue four: "The Fourth instalment from Blue Tapes' ongoing delvings into the melodious pairs two like minded auteurs to produce some pretty divine outcomes... Laurent Chambert's side starts in a lock grooved hypnosis of jazzy mirror glints. Reich tonal charges, gently tempo shunted, cut back to sift through some achingly beautiful crystals of elastic duality. Piano pulses lightly dusted in ping ponged percussion, fading slowly into watery timber creaks of oars and rumbling weather. Chord recyclings follow chased by cymbal flares, finally bowing out on the self same arpeggio(ed) dazzle of dancing fingers that started the track. Fractal Skulls continues the vibe with an ambient sun stroked horizon entitled 'Endless 23'... A loose glitter haze, full of spiral lit curls and sequenced zest. Overlays of drifting melodica on 'Reserve Army of Labour' pursuing in gentle repeater candies and polyrhythmic milks. Mellow dew that's well worth your attention..." - Rotten Meats
  10. Any speculation on whether these two tracks were recorded (or perhaps partially recorded) in the duo's childhood? Maybe there are other tracks I'm forgetting about, but I've always just assumed - particularly with Heysanna Hosanna - that these are a result of their playing with tape recorders as kids, recording the TV and their own musical shenanigans. Thank you and goodnight.
