JNN108 Out level – Strange sounds can make a man happy

7 10 2010

SonicSquirrel page

And here I was thinking that the man we know all too well from his magnificent field recordings (Luis Antero) had taken a side step into a different cloak (Out Level). But upon checking any profiles for writing a little bit to whet your apetite’s I realize that this is the eleventh release allready! I should rather frown upon myself for not having shared any of his music yet on a previous NTNS radio show. Alas so it is.
After his earlier Website Story released on Just not Normal I can truly say I am flabbergasted with the release Luis now offers. Prepared guitar is the main event in these short tracks. But little is left of the original sounds as these appear more to be sound travels through a space many have not yet meandered. You can today though, and board this delicacy in sounds. While your at it, do take the time to check out his earlier works on XS record, Bypass and Merzbau. Something you may thank me for.

JNN107 Chris Lynn – The clouds have settled in

7 10 2010

SonicSquirrel page

Chris Lynn is a multifaceted filmmaker and Sound Artist from Maryland, USA. His work has been screened at festivals and galleries in the United States, Europe and Mexico. His short films focus primarily in urban and rural landscapes. His sound pieces are an assemblage of field recordings, ambient pieces, and soundtracks from his films.
I personally have stumbled upon Chris’ soundpieces through the various releases he has out on Earth Monkey, Electronic Music and Misspelled Records. Through time I have always enjoyed his works a lot and when Chris knocked on JNN’s door for a future release I was well stumped and immediately took him in. And I have certainly been rewarded with a fine release filled with fragile yet beautiful soundscapes from what appear to be recordings somewhere in Asia. But I believe that is not the common factor of this release. Having heard this now a few times there is a timidness in these recordings, something that nourishes the listeners ears and soul and refreshes the mind.
If you’re a fan of field recordings then this is a release not to be missed. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

JNN106 Szentpétery Csaba – Conclusion

7 10 2010

It was somewhere in 2009 that through NTNS radio I first heard of this Hungarian artist. I had played an album from him that was released on Amduscias Records and I loved that to bits. The silence after that settled in untill early August Szentpétery contacted me and asked me if I was interested in releasing his latest album. Without hearing even a single tone I welcomed him onboard and new that I would be proud of this fine fine release.
And so it did turn out to be; this 12 track album that floats on soft noise, dark ambience but most of all a great atmosphere of abstract experimentalism. Today is the day that you get to hear from this artist. Put up your feet and relax to the hypnotizing works from Szentpétery, your chance is now!

JNN105 Candstandya – Awake in a dark room

7 10 2010


Archive.org page
SonicSquirrel page

Awake in a dark room is the follow-up EP to Slow Motions, compiled from leftover tracks recorded before the album sessions, and one newer track (Avoid A Void).
Because this EP consists of material recorded vaguely around the same time as the Slow Motions sessions it very much is a companion piece to the album, though musically it’s pretty different. Tracks 1 & 4 consist almost exclusively out of E-Bow sounds, while the middle two tracks combine the use of E-Bow with more traditional guitar playing. Enjoy!

Tracks 1, 3 & 4 recorded during various sessions in 2009
Track 2 recorded in 2010
All using Guitar, E-Bow, Effects and Laptop
All tracks written, recorded, edited and mixed by Michiel Geluykens

JNN098 Apocalyptic Frequency Experience – Musings on human metamorphoses

7 07 2010


Archive.org page
SonicSquirrel page

And in the darkness lives the mysterious. Or in other words what happens when an experimental artist from Mexico (Roberto Telles Garcia) gets head to head with a French mistress of the experimental soundage (Murielle Gallon) and complete the quartet of brotherhoods with Kalavazombie on synth and programers and Simio Autodidacta for pics and art.
Their assignment: Express in sound the musings on human metamorphoses.
For certain they have reached their degree in deep dark experimentations and surprising sounds dithered with hidden messages.
It is dark, it is brooding, it is Apocalyptic!

JNN097 Thanato Twist & Oleg’s sound system – Swing mastication

7 07 2010

SonicSquirrel page

If the world of lo-fi IDM could find more oompf, this would be the place. A wealth of toys has been intergrated into these 10 tracks that will make your mind swirl and your body ache for more. Ofcourse it may just as well be possible that you’re not into such degraded toynoises. If that is the case, you certainly got lost and trapped in a world you needn’t be in.
Most likely you will thoroughly enjoy this recording of two giants in the world of experimental improv’ed music: Ayato and Kortane Cortex.

A review of their first album on Treetrunk records reveils this:
“Psychedelic blasts, vast explosions of noises, unbeat in the repetitions, celestial harmony torn. Plasma waves building the spatial scene of Bailarin noche. Slobbery beats and sweating melodies turn around our solar system. There’s no doubt ! The brain of the Thanato’s is lost in a somber meditation. Black hole. White noise. Ready to thrill on the drift ?”
This may as well have been the review of this current release; it is just breathtaking!

JNN096 Jazznoize – Sediments

7 07 2010


Archive.org page

From Spain, this multi experimentalist dares walk on the dark side of sounds as one would go shopping at the supermarket. His varried pallet of sounds has matured much since the establishement of Jazznoize in 2005. Sergio Sánches Nicolás uses field recordings transforming them a lot or at all, technicians of loop, audible errors, or the slow sounds like pure example of transformation of the means. If you’ve never heard the eerie sounds of this Spanish meister then let this opportunity not pass you by and join in this special treat for the ears.
