IMC03 Various artists – Dead voices White noise

7 06 2011

Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings.”

The act of capturing EVP activity to support paranormal research is a source of much contention between skeptics and believers. Dead Voices; White Noise disregards the arguments and goes straight to the heart of the matter – the recordings. Tracks for this compilation were created using EVP recordings, either as samples to complement a composition, or manipulated to become the basis of the composition itself. A brief, but haunting, exposition of dark ambient and noise, inspired by notions of the supernatural.

The intelligent Machinery crew seek to explore this in this brand new compilation album.
Which also for the time being is regarded as possibly the last album release on JNN for some time to come.
But then again; it might just be mere ghosts that hauntingly whisper such nonsensical news.

JNN126 Cagey House – Gnomic

7 05 2011


Archive.org page
SonicSquirrel page one day maybe?

Have you ever been in contact with the music of the Cagey House?
Cagey House is Baltimore’s Dave Keifer. Producing primarily instrumental music, since 1999, and he also experiments with sound collage. If you frequent netlabels such as this one, then undoubtedly you have been in touch with the music of this collaging meister. His work has been described as “synth-post-pop-punk-psyche-hypno-exotica.”

For as long as I can remember I have seen his releases from various corners around the globe and from a variety of netlabels too.
And all I have heard had stolen my ears and musical heart on the spot. There is a certain playfulness about the sounds and to me the tracks oft are more visualities rather they are just tonal plays. Dave Kiefer would want to welcome you into his realm of fun and we at Just not Normal think you may just enjoy your stay so much that you will want to seek out more from Dave. By all means go an find!
You may need to as this delight right here will only satisfy your needs for about 20+ minutes. But it will in grandeur!

JNN123 Jóse Maria Pastor Sanchez -El arte de la medida histriónica

7 04 2011

SonicSquirrel page

My initial apologees first of all should go out to the patient Jóse who had to wait a rather long period before today’s release. Sorry sir, but timing was a bit awkward with JNN dwindling down in its initial pause.
His and for certain your luck, is that now with NTNS dwindling down in its initial pause there is time and lust again to get back and release some gems your ears will certainly appreciate.

There is very little I can tell you about the artist, all I can share are the sounds that are a near absurd mixture of spoken word, field recordings, deep dark rumblings and acoustic sounds. One things I should say though; I’m loving this!

Well ok, the artist did leave some words, be them Portugese or Spanish (I cannot tell them apart):

“Los actos son irreversibles y las reacciones incontrolables. Lo mejor no actuar y no recciona”

01 – El cati
02 – 32 sonidos y 30 palabras para la Manzanita
03 – Zacarias Torme
04 – Mirta Nair
05 – 72 de 3
06 – Loreley

JNN122 Philippe Faujas – Deriva Sonora

Joining the ranks of avid Field Recordists is Philippe Faujas from Spain. Making Just not Normal not per say a field recordings netlabel, but since I personally am a big fan of field recordings and feel they go extremely well amidst experimental music Philippe is very much welcomed to the world of JNN. Follow his link to an even bigger world of recorded sounds, but let this release be your guide into the world of this fine French artist living in Spain. He won my heart with his great sounds and I know you’ll love it too.

JNN120 Mikra – Es ist über ein wenig Rainer Maria Rilke

7 01 2011


Archive.org page
SonicSquirrel page sometime

It was some time ago that I received an email from Pavel from Minsk (Belarus). He came to JNN through word of Zhang JW of the great Bypass netlabel. As Pavel explains his music displays the modern technogenic world and intertwines also the Internet and cinema. This piece you’re about to hear is indeed a world of technogenics that intertwines the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke. JNN has previously released albums that work from the poetry of some famed poets and writers, but this release takes it all a step further.
One could call this collaging sounds and spoken words, but together they make for an intriguing listen.
Pavel may also be known under his ABC monniker that has a fantastic release out on the intox noize netlabel. As he stated he used to work with old Soviet analog synths in the past but has now moved on working more with computers. Either sound grand to my ears, so why not join in hearing something quite fascinating.
