http://www.intervall-audio.com

Parece que gran parte del IDM actual viene de tierras muy alejadas. Hace rato ya, see dejó este género de ser exclusivo del norte de América o del Reino Unido; de hecho, sale he encontrado mucho material produciéndose en Japón. Sora, pseudónimo del señor Takeshi Kurosawa, publica en Intervall-Audio (sello dedicado exclusivamente a material Alemán y Japonés), un fragmento de una presentación en vivo del 2003 en la que interpreta gran parte de su disco publicado en plop. Sora logra pasajes realmente cautivantes alejado de lugares comunes. Un pequeño oasis entre tantos genéricos.

*****

“Sora is the alias of Kyoto-based electronic musician Takeshi Kurosawa. The Japanese word sora (空) means ‘sky’, ‘the blue’ or ‘the heavens’. But the Japanese character also means ’empty’, and the tracks on Live at Metro indeed evoke the peacefully relaxing atmosphere and emptiness of mind that an entire day, from sunrise to sunset, of a summer holiday spent at the beach brings.

We see the first rays of the morning sun flicker through the trees. The air, shimmering and blurred by the heat, gently touches the skin as we walk to the beach. We lie down in the sand’s tender warmth and take a nap full of dreams and faint memories, before swimming submersed in the joyful play of bubbles in a glistening sea. By late afternoon, we no longer hear but actually feel the breeze coming in from the sea. And the evening rejoices in the promise of sitting around a beach fire until the last melody disappears into the dark open night over the sea.

Live at Metro is a richly textured, playfully arranged, crisply analogue-sounding electronica opus that testifies to the fine taste of early Plop releases and defined the image and future direction of the label back in 2003. Live at Metro also demonstrates the exceptional talent of a young Japanese artist who, in 2006, played the Plop label showcase at the Sonar Festival in Barcelona as well as Sonar Sound Tokyo.
Originally recorded in 2003, Live at Metro features remixes from Sora‘s first full-length album re.sort (Plop 2003), as well as hitherto unreleased material. The tracks are skilfully interwoven to form a continuous sound event and therefore are provided in one full-length gapless file for download. With Live at Metro Sora gives us a deeply satisfying 32 minutes of audio exploration that stays with us because it echoes a half-remembered state of bliss, perfect peace and innermost contentment.”

Éste, viagra 60mg
el debut de Dupe (A.K.A. Mez), tadalafil
compositor de origen holandés, ed
es un Downtempo para nada sútil. Por el contrario, es un disco abrasivo lleno de riffs de guitarra y mucho chorus. Un viaje shoegazer por infinidad de voces, guitarras y sintes filtrados donde los pasajes tranquilos brillan por su casi ausencia.
Altamente recomendado su otro ep en FOEM crème

*****

“Demo is a 4 piece set of stunningly feel good tracks featuring dubbed vocals, various acoustic instrumentation, solid drum lines, and lush, synthesized melodies. these songs each visit the extremes of all aspects of their identity, making the Demo EP a diverse, and pleasant listen. ”

Miwa-Momo-Hojo & Yuichi Nagao – Kiechimae

Frozen elephants

¿Que tipo de música puede provenir de un proyecto que mezcla steel guitars, ambulance pianos, melanoma clicks & cuts, grano, voces femeninas orientales y percusiones? Pues realmente una muy extraña, pero encantadora. No piensen para nada que se trata de algúna grabación de world music ni mucho menos; es simplemente el lógico proceso de gente que ha escuchado mucha música y logra plasmar muchas de sus influencias en una sola obra. Igual, es un disco para nada simple, pero que ha funcionado perfectamente en esos momentos en los que quiero sentarme a simplemente escuchar música sin ningún tipo de distractor. Y esto se debe a la contradicción que genera, porque la extrema placidez proveniente de estas grabaciones llenas de errores digitales y voces armoniosas es simplemente única e indescriptible.

*****

“Meet the voice & performance artist Miwa Momo Hojo and her colleague, the media & sound artist Yuichi Nagao from Tokyo, Japan. The combination of their works is a tidal wave of dense, digital recordings, loaded with compact melodic structures, shifting voice
patterns & fuzzy electronic noise. Some of these songs are meandering from improvised acoustic basics to richly layered compositions, some have an almost romantic quality, taking the listener from from gasping emptiness to scratchy indeterminacy. The music by Miwa Momo Hojo & Yuichi Nagao is a breathtaking update to the idea of digital songwriting.

Miwa Momo Hojo, born in 1982 studied Imagine Arts & Sciences at Musashino Art University, Japan. Her solo-works are mainly influenced by traditional japanese music and it’s instruments. Yuichi Nagao studied media/soundart with Christophe Charles at Tokyo Arts University and musicology with the jazz musician Naruyoshi Kikuchi. His solo-works are defined by the search for new musical structures.”

Hace días me encontraba en un room en slsk y alguien afirmó (erróneamente, population health como suele ser obvio en este tipo de salas de chat) que los netlabels eran muy monótonos porque todos publicaban música electrónica muy similar. Lógicamente quien se atreve a pronunciar este tipo de cosas es porque como muchos, habla de algo que no conoce. Generalizamos y estereotipamos por uno o dos ejemplos de entre millones. Pero que se le va a hacer, asi suele ser el hombre, atrevido.

Por eso reseño este disco, porque al verme envuelto en esta discusión éste fue uno de los primeros discos que se me vino a la cabeza. Un disco que de electrónica no tiene nada, un disco que más bien esta lleno de música de habitación, traído directamente desde la congestionada ciudad de Nueva York, enmarcado en terrenos indie, folk y lo-fi. Instrumentos en vivo, sonidos apacibles y canciones muy bellamente elaboradas que te destrozan el alma.
Ésta es para ustedes, estúpidos seres humanos.

“Sebastian Krueger of Inlets just needs a little room. Growing up in a large prairie-style home in Madison, Wisconsin, he became possessed with a certain notion of infinite space. His method is compact and intimate – a solitary Shure microphone details the puff of a clarinet as closely as reverberations in the creases of his pillow – but these bedroom recordings sprawl with occluded heartfelt colors and shimmer with the accidents of expansion. Here, whole conversations bloom and senesce in quick moments between notes; single hushed voices persist and then suddenly are buttressed by myriad more. This is music that riots and rushes in the world of multi-track recording software, but which still retains a terse narrative course and an ear to beautiful detail.

Apart from Inlets, Sebastian enjoys the privilege of playing in My Brightest Diamond; supporting Shara Worden with guitars, clarinets, bells and falsetto. He contributes to her forthcoming record A Thousand Shark’s Teeth. ”

The quiet ep

Monotonik

http://www.mono211.com

Considerado por muchos el mejor disco online del 2005, viagra 40mg sonmi451 reedita algunos de los tracks de un CD publicado en u-cover llamado “Vladivostok” bajo el nombre de “the quiet EP”.

Como su nombre lo indica, se trata de música tranquila, envuelta en una especie de poesía auditiva llena de acordes menores, dub, ambient y voces manipuladas. Música instrumental que emociona y hace soñar. Una música como muchas otras, que a fuerza te muestra que tienes sentimientos y que vale la pena vivir si de escuchar este tipo de discos se trata.

*****

“It’s a delight to welcome Belgian artist Bernard Zwijzen, aka Sonmi451, a veteran of release of real-life labels such as U-Cover, to Monotonik with his rather divine 4-track release, ‘The Quiet EP’, which artfully blends ambience and melody in some delightfully beguiling ways.

The EP, which includes both tracks from Sonmi451’s super-limited edition U-Cover CDR ‘Vladivostok’, as well as new material, starts out with the title track from that CDR, which is ambient drift incarnate, before moving on to ‘Inner Structure’, which uses loops and an almost triphop aesthetic, with gently trilling voices and tinkling rustles spreading slowly all over the dial.

Things finish out with ‘Quiet Piece For Bram’, which swells and swells to awesome heights of rotating ambience, before ‘Dilating’ delves all the way into clickhouse, with some gorgeous percussion and chord rumbles – a fitting end to an excellent EP.”
