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

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

There is a small regret to say this series now has come to an end with this final release.
Thank you dearly mr. Dennis Moser, aka usr/sbin, aka AldoManutio Abruzzo.
I never experienced the live concerts themselves as they were performed on Second Life, but judging by the content its indepth quality grew as the collection widened. 12 Full moon concert series are now captured in time. 2010 a document forever available.
And you the listener have one last album to complete your collection.
I certainly hope you’ve enjoyed this and will for many years to come.

A year with Luna: 12 monthly meditations on the Full moon
Volume twelve: Twelfth month moon

Music performed by Dennis Moser (aka AldoManutio Abruzzo or ‘usr/sbin’)
Live in Second Life on December 21st 2010
for the Full Moon Lunacy Concert series, 2010

01 – Red, the eclipse rising over the snows

JNN113 Krabatof – Sea of trees

7 12 2010

How these mystical artists find their way into the realms of JNN is beyond me sometimes, but behold; this ‘Sea of trees’ will astound you. But before we talk of this album here, let’s share a previous review of ‘Insect’s Brain’ shared on Touching Extremes;

“a little more than 31 minutes of very interesting “bruit art” by Geneva-based Ludovic Guerry, who manipulates “noises, field recordings and many weird sounds” in seven personal definitions of a peculiar world of embryonic utterances and disembodied dreams about the inhospitality of life.”

While it baffles me to know who might be behind Krabatof, since I’ve read a few different names now I find myself lost in the sounds of the album you see in front of you now. The mysticism to me only ups the anté and I find myself caring less for the creator, but dwell only more the the creation. You should try it yourself too! If you too get lost, try the breadcrumbs option, but beware of the geese.

JNN112 Somnaphon – Sarasota

7 11 2010

A large portion of this album was composed from ‘disturbances’ that were recorded while living in an active haunted house.
You may consider this your after Halloween treat, or just a plain immersive and fantastic album filled with darkness and just plain great tracks! What the maker probably don’t realize though is that 112 in the Netherlands is the equal to 911 in the US.
You may keep that number near while listening to this!

JNN111 Phillip Wilkerson – Particle

There was an interview the other day in which, if I remember correctly Phillip stated that he was going to concentrate less on the experimental free releases. Well since you are reading these words here you are clearly recognizing that the great Phillip Wilkerson has yet done it again. Right before your eyes is the latest experimental release from Phillip that can be regarded as a blessing for your wanton ears. If you’ve heard some of the previous JNN releases by Phillip I can but say, the man is taking it all a step further, another step deeper into the sounds and mechanics of these sounds. Particle is a treat and it should be welcomed to your harddrive with honor. Thank you Phillip for creating this and sharing it with the world through JNN.

JNN110 Khate – Therapy

What are you saying; you never heard of Khate before. What rock have you been living under?
One of the finer mistresses of the world of experimental electronics resurfaces with a brand new album!
After the longest absence from music making and as she claims ‘the crazies’ this fine fine artist returns and boy are we in for a treat. From one of our back and forth emails:

“But! I’m on the mend (or at least pretending to be). And one thing me & the ol’ therapist are working on is me being able to let go of artwork. Like, it’s never good enough, so it languishes in the hard drive/studio forever. I’ve got hours of material that have been building up over the past couple years that I just can’t let go of. Yet I’ve kept them around and worked on them over and over, so I must think they have some merit.

I wanna set some of these captive animals free, just grit my teeth and let them go. In my head, these are terrible tracks… but I can’t exactly hear someone argue otherwise unless I let them go, right?”

Let’s give Khate a warm welcome back and for now delve into this 17 track madness called Therapy, being Therapy.
