      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      You must have seen her name or her lovely face somewhere already. She's quite into the spotlight at the moment, and she's performing at Atonal and Unsound this year. If you go there don't miss her. She plays modular synthesizers and it's great. Her second LP just dropped on Important Records and it's as good as her first one released in April last year.

      If you're more interested she also made a Boiler Room a couple of months ago.

      100 copies on white vinyl: kouhei_asmus_white.jpg
      Limited edition split 12" curated by Kouhei Matsunaga. Side A features two new tracks from the legendary
      German sound artist Asmus Tietchens. Side B features two new pieces from Kouhei Matsunaga. 500 copies. First
      100 copies are on color vinyl.
      Last summer Important released some highly praised records with Kouhei Matsunaga including a collaborative
      CD with Sean Booth (Autechre) and Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic), a split LP with Mika Vainio and a full length
      CD of his own solo work. The breath and quality of Kouhei's work was apparent across these three releases
      and his compositions for this split LP serve to create connections between his beat based work and his more
      abstract soundscapes. Kouhei's most recent solo work was just released by Skam.
      Asmus Tietchen's contributions to contemporary electronic music is immense. The two pieces making up his side
      of the record have been sculpted from stochastic sequences of pure sine waves as well as guitar samples given
      to him by Dirk Serries (Fear Falls Burning) not for the purpose of collaboration but for processing purposes.
      Sonic events orchestrated by a sonic master.
