101. Strings Of Consciousness - Asphodel - 5:58 (320 kbps)

Strings Of Consciousness has united acoustic music and digital technology. The sound of Strings Of Consciousness is meant and dreamt to be adventurous and creative. Throughout the past few years we have noticed that more and more experimentalists were expressing less and less concern for their potential listeners, forgetting to respect some structures/directions in their composition and most of all lacking humanity. Even if we sculpt and craft our music with a lot of focus on detail and days and days of editing, for us it is important to convey emotions, feelings. Today, 14 musicians form the collective though the heart of Strings Of Consciousness is a string quartet, as its name makes clear, but it is also a direct literary reference to the "stream of consciousness", a term that was earlier in the 20th century to illustrate the flow of words echoing the narrator's thoughts. A narrative technique which is dear to the ensemble because of musical freeforms they all feel strongly about. Though we do not believe that free playing equals everyone playing at once. Grace and space are of the utmost importance.

Founded by Philippe Petit (BiP_HOp / Pandemonium Rdz.) and Hervé Vincenti and starting life as a small group of musicians from Marseilles, France, the ensemble expanded by recruiting like-minded musicians from across the Globe. Their unique sound has been likened to latter-day Talk Talk, Angelo Badalamenti, Do Make Say Think, Tortoise and Arab Strap often in the same breath.

Hervé Vincenti (guitars / samplers / keys) + Abdenor Natouri (double bass) + Andy Diagram (trumpet / electronics) + Karim Tobbi (guitar) + Perceval Bellone (saxophone) + Philippe Petit (laptop) + Lydwine Vanderhulst (piano)

"Our Moon Is Full" features vocal collaborations from J.G. Thirlwell (Foetus), Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys), Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Lisa Smith-Klossner, Pete Simonelli (Enablers), Black Sifichi and Barry Adamson.


102. The Black Hakawati - There’s a Hole at the End of the Tunnel - 5:24 (320 kbps)

Formed by Austrian saxist Herbert Könighofer and sound artist Norbert Bieber, The Black Hakawati fuses classical jazz elements with lush flying carpets of electronically generated and treated sounds. Ranging from gloomy yet enlightening jazz ballads to edgy, expressive groove monsters their sonic fairy tales conquer the dedicated listener with a passionate love for details and sound.

Previously unreleased, “There’s a Hole at the End of the Tunnel” is a vivid example for TBH’s abilities to create subtle darkness, featuring Klaus Kircher (bass) and Andy Collett (guitar).


103. Professor Psygrooves + friends - Scales [Special Version] - 13:52 (320 kbps)

This version is based on a track originally performed and improvised live as part of a working session in which Professor Psygrooves handled electronics, live treatments and effects, and M. Sevrain (aka. Bigmik) played long piano and synth.
Then, and exclusively for this compilation, the Professor recorded a drums improvisation and mr. August Engkilde, with his amazing sense of bass playing, added groovy double-bass lines.
The resulting piece consists in a "humanized" special version, which combines ambient electronics, big dubs, and sound textures with the lively impression of an improbable trio...

Credits :
Professor Psygrooves (jarring effects label, fr) : electronics, sound treatments,
drums, mix, edits
Big Mik (mutt productions, fr) : long piano, nordlead synth
August Engkilde (brumtone recordings, dk) : double-bass...

* Professor Psygrooves' very first album "foreign pulses and borderline dubs" will be released on february 9th 2009, on Jarring Effects Label... STAY TUNED !!

104. Damo Suzuki & NOW - Metro Girl (the unedited full 20 minute version) - 19:57 (320 kbps)
(United Kingdom/Germany/Japan/Africa)

DAMO SUZUKI & NOW - "The London Evening News"
For this recording:
CASPAR GORDON = trombone / synthesizer
CRAIG TAMLIN = percussion / trumpet
JUSTIN PATON = synthesizers / percussion
PETER LOWIS = bass guitar
YUHI NAKANO = synthesizer

In London, 1998, songwriter Justin Paton thought up a new group called NOW, so regular rehearsals were arranged with friends helping out on various instruments and NOW was born.

Along the way the NOW line-up has evolved to include the following:
ANGELA LAST = bass, voice, synth, guitar, percussion
JUSTIN PATON = voice, guitar, synth, percussion, bass
RICHARD THOMAS = cello, voice, melodica, percussion

On "THE HEPADABOO", their second studio album released by the Japanese label Flau, NOW are delving further into the unexplored regions of off-beat pop music. An EP named "OISHEEDY ANNA" is also out on Discordance records and their first album, named "FRISBEE HOTPOT", was released in 2006 on Pickled Egg records.

NOW have worked with visionary underground musicians such as Cans Damo Suzuki (a joint album was released on TRI recordings in 2007, named "THE LONDON EVENING NEWS", and got a rave review in The Wire magazine), Charles Hayward (This Heat/Camberwell Now), Mike Watt (The Stooges/The Minutemen/Firehose/Ciccone Youth), Norways' Metronomicon collective and Salvatore, Kaori Tsuchida (The Go! Team), The Klinker club, Resonance FM Radio, the Kosmische club, Rebecca Closure and Man From Uranus, and regularly appeared on CD and vinyl compilations.

Their sense of adventure continues to attract interesting collaborations, and has earned them support slots with bands such as Faust, Circle, Tunng, Psapp, Rothko, The Chap, Plaid and A Hawk & A Hacksaw.

NOW could be described as catchy, contemporary, inventive, exotic, melodious, harmonious and disharmonious 21st century pop music.

106. Infinitus Ensemble - The Pink Shoes Of Marie Antoinette are sailing on a Ship of Thoughts

This song has two parts. The first one is rather experimental ambient, the last one is (maybe) experimental Jazz ambient.
To us it's just another MEDUSADA song. We don't care about genres.

This song has been released in a rough demo version without some sounds that you can now hear under a slightly different name on some other NET label this year.
We have re-arranged a few sounds, added new sounds (especially some drum sounds and female back. voices) and did a complete new mix and mastering.
This is now the final version!!!!

Allan Prooso: Percussion

'Phlox' is a fusion/prog rock band from Tallinn, Estonia, formed in 1999 by Kristo Roots (g), Raivo Prooso (perc), Rainer Kapmann (dr) and Priit Holtsmann (b). Although the line up has gone through numerous changes over the years, most of the members usually have close ties with 'MKDK', a jazz-rock/avant garde record label, non-profit organization and movement of artists and musicians, who frequently switch from one band to another, especially between 'Phlox',' BF' and 'Lippajad'. The first album, "Fusion", was recorded in late 2000, shortly after that Priit Luming (sx, cl), Allan Prooso (perc) and Pearu Helenurm (kb) joined the group. During that period the band’s music became more improvisational, from completely deconstructing their own compositions to having shows where they tried to avoid anything resembling rhythmic structures or harmony. In May 2004 the band's second album "Piima" ("Milk") was recorded in the MKDK Studio, with Margo Pajula on drums and Kalle Klein on sax, using strictly vintage analogue equipment. In 2007, with Madis Zilmer of fusion group 'BF' on drums, 'Phlox' completed its latest album to date, "Rebimine + voltimine" ("Tearing and folding"), which saw the band’s return to straightforward tight structured fusion and prog.


205. Populaere Mechanik - Captain B (Track 1) - 3:47 (320 kbps)

"Populaere Mechanik started around 1980 as a group of people who began making music in the second half of the sixties beat, garage, psycedelic. With the advent of punk in the 70ties they found themselves in the situation of being too old for punk and to young to go on playing rock music like punk never happened. So they had to look elsewhere and found inspiration in jazz, avantgarde and electronics. One big influence was Conrad Schnitzler and his Zodiak Free Arts Lab where some of the original mechanics got their first whiff of freely improvised sound."

207. Morviscous - I've Loved Crocs - 5:45 (320 kbps)
(United Kingdom)

"Morviscous are an instrumental five piece based in London and Paris whose compositions plunder the various genres of the 20th Century with a sensibility that belongs to the idiosyncratic British tradition of popular experimental music. Likened to both heritage artists such as Soft Machine and King Crimson and contemporary acts ala Battles and Don Cabellero, Morviscous interpret the influences around them with a distinctive Englishness that’s rare in today’s musical climate. Bottlenecking through the buffers of both the Jazz and Popular traditions, critics agree that MV are starting to ‘demand your attention".
(Mike Barnes, Mojo 177 August 2008)

Pete Bennie - Jonny Mac - Christian Berg - Adam Coney - Nick Siddall

302. The Stoner - Satan i Uppsala - 4:18 (320 kbps)

Nils Berg - Tenor sax, Bass clarinet, Flute
Jonas Östholm - Piano
Nils Ölmedal - Kontrabas
Jon Fält - Trummor

Since their debut in 2004 The Stoner has released three albums, and grown to something of a creative centre of the new nordic jazz movement. With an outstanding charisma they deal with the jazz tradition with a playfulness inspired rather by The Beatles than John Coltrane.

- A concert with the Stoner should feel like a good thriller. Exciting, beautiful and unpredictable. Although we play encores, you don't get that at the cinemas.
Nils Berg, composer and director of the band, places the music somewhere between The Beach Boys, Broadway and "the good old swedish angst".
- A couple of our new songs are real heart-achers. Maybe we should find ourselves a shrink. Really, we just want to play music that makes people dance...

The Stoner have been touring Sweden extensively, when not on the road in South Africa, Scotland or Russia. The members of the band are far from faithful, two-timing with the swedish jazz elite alongside international stars like Tomasz Stanko, Bobo Stenson and Mando Diao.

“A new kind of jazz” “Music that holds more than it excludes – it has groove, beauty and something almost naïvely affirmative to it” (DN)
“Listening to this makes me stunned and thoroughly happy. How dare they?”
“The Stoner stands at the front, staring the future of Swedish Jazz straight in the eye” (
“Tenor sax player Nils Berg leads the quartet the Stoner with credit. He turns established concepts on their sides, liberated from all that is prestige” “Audiopharmacologic for the people!” (Svd)

Arkana Music is a Toronto based modern jazz quartet focused on improvisation and creative music. All compositions are by Ali Berkok and each piece is written in order to create a different environment, without relying on existing jazz vehicles and devices.

Since its inception, Arkana has performed in many of Toronto's established venues such as the Rex Hotel, Cameron House, Tranzac and the Trane Studio, and newer clubs like the Central and Concord Cafe. Arkana has received airplay on international radio and podcasts, reaching as high as 1 on Calgary's CJSW jazz chart. As well, the band was recently featured as the soundtrack to coverage of Toronto's "Nights of Fire" event.

The beginnings of the band date back to collaborations between Ali and saxophonist Mark Laver, which took place at the Banff Centre For The Arts in 2005. Here, Ali and Mark were introduced to a world of techniques outside of the mainstream. Shortly thereafter, while working in Hong Kong, Ali started working on the initial pieces for the band. Arkana Music first appeared in May 2006 at the Concord Cafe in Toronto.

407. Trio Lio - Coure - [fragment] - 4:38 (320 kbps)

Como no podia ser de mejor manera tratándose de un grupo de improvisación libre, Trio Lio se formó casi aleatoriamente durante el Festival Homenaje al fallecido músico japonés, residente en Barcelona, Hiroshi Kobayashi en mayo de 2007 a raíz de la actuación de Albert Giménez, con quien a última hora unieron fuerzas el bateria Quicu Samsó y el trompetista Xavier Tort, que tambien participaban cada uno con sus respectivos proyectos: el primero con Aixònoéspànic y los ocasionales Com Més Va, donde coincidía con el segundo. Así pues, se podría decir que Trio Lio, liderado por Albert Giménez (donde toca la guitarra clásica), tan solo existen en escena, desentendiéndose de cualquier noción de ensayo buscando en la aventura de la improvisación más descarnada el desarrollo del diálogo y, con ello, evidenciando el summum de un único lenguaje posible: el musical. Aún teniendo en cuenta su reciente formación, ya cuentan con el primer testimonio de su idiosincrasia: su primer disco "Òxid/Coure" (Autoeditado, 2007). El trío lo lidera el veterano guitarrista Albert Giménez, cuya larga trayectoria le ha visto formando parte de bandas experimentales como Neuronium (con un álbum junto a Nico de Velvet Underground), Macromassa y Suck Electrònic, llevando desde entonces una prolífica obra en solitario de nada menos que dieciocho álbumes. Asimismo, Quicu Samsó, el bateria, ha sido miembro de Moisés Moisés, Obmuz, Macromassa y Koniec, así como colaborador de John Zorn y Pascal Comelade. El trompetista Xavier Tort, además de llevar una larga trayectoria componiendo música para cine, militó en bandas como La Orquesta de la Muerte, Giulia y los Tellarini y La Lidia, y ha colaborado con Damo Suzuki (Can), The Linn Youki Project y un largo plantel de bandas independientes de Barcelona.

This new collaboration is called STRINGTREK."

602. Christophe de Bezenac - Three Timbres - 4:16 (320 kbps)
(United Kingdom)

Biography: Christophe de Bezenac is a French experimental saxophonist and researcher based in the UK. After studying contemporary improvised musics and composition at the Strasbourg conservatoire, he went to Indonesia to learn West Javanese and Balinese gamelan where he became interested in the perceptual ambiguity of music. Christophe then moved to the UK where he completed a Masters and Doctorate (Improvising Ambiguity: An Ecological Approach to Music-Making) at the University of Leeds, whilst lecturing and becoming actively involved in the music scene. His present research – which draws from ecological psychology, cognitive neuroscience, ethnomusicology and his own performance practice – examines the psychological and physiological mechanisms which promote delusions/illusions of control (leading to the perceptual blurring of self) in music-making. Christophe's related musical interests lie at the fringes of European improvisation, jazz, gamelan, DIY and electroacoustic music. He has performed at numerous international contemporary music and jazz festivals/venues around Europe, collaborating with artists from diverse musical backgrounds, including Christian Sebille, Marc Ducret, Simon Fell, David Murray, Ken Vandemark, Paul Hession, Matthew Bourne, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Frank Vigroux, Chris Sharkey and Dave Kane.

We are essentially a live band and perform as often as possible. We have 16 releases most of which were released in limited edition CDRs and are no longer in print, currently available is "A Fundamental Problem"(available for download from ) "High Tension" a limited CDR and 4 older releases are still available from Postmoderncore records.

609. David O'Connor - A Good Engine - 9:59 (320 kbps)
(United Kingdom)

Anyway, music information. Its a solo baritone piece called "A Good Engine". The title is a phrase used by a friend in describing the baritone saxophone and as I wanted to dedicate the piece to Harry Carney of the Ellington orchestra, the main reason I play baritone, it seemed even more fitting. Although it is predominantly improvised, it does have two structural elements. The first is trying to ensure that the developments in the piece are distinct and in some unrelated to what has gone before, an attempt to echo what Carney was playing with Ellington and how the pieces would change from blues, to swing, to ballads and so on, though the changes in my piece aren't necessarily based on those musical ideas. The second element is the use of phrases from 'Sophisticated Lady' throughout as a springboard for the improvisation, given this was the tune that Harry Carney was most known for playing. I suppose, in a way, this piece also gives a slight nod to Mr Ellington, an inspiration, direct or otherwise, to those of us who play jazz related music."

David O'Connor is London based sax player/flautist who is open to invention and is very fond of cats and ducks.


610. Mimesys - Wood 1008 - 6:00 (320 kbps)

Michele Spanghero : doublebass
Ugo Boscain : contrabass clarinet

The project MIMESYS was born from the common interest of the two Italian musicians Michele Spanghero (double-bass) and Ugo Boscain (contrabass clarinet) for the low pitched and unusual sounds. The Mimesys Duo is mainly concerned with improvised music, using a language within classical contemporary music and european jazz. Great importance is given to the timbric experimentation and to the uncommon sonorities produced by the instruments through the use of extended techinques. The sounds are convulsively brought to a musical and emotional mimetic absorbtion (therefore the name Mimesys for the duo).

701. Scissor Shock - I Have A Question About Nietzche - 2:35 (320 kbps)
(United States)

Scissor Shock is a noise band from Columbus, Indiana who is mainly focused on creating something interesting and new, usually incorporating insanely complex song structures that don't really make any sense but would be impossible for a human to pull off... but, somehow, I do it!! And there used to be lots of screaming. Scissor Shock started life as a domain for 45-second rock songs with 300 time changes. Then, it started to just become this crazed jazz explosion of quiet/loud crashing and music that was impossible to follow. Now, it's progressive no wave noise with broken instruments. Neat, eh? Adam Cooley (RUINHORSE, Stagedive Suicide, Ranger Raccoon, Knife Big, etc...) is basically the only full-t.

703. Magical Unicellular Music [Solntsetsvety] - Kamen Part One (Track 2) - 14:55 (320 kbps)

Magical Unicellular Music (V.O.M. – В.О.М.) – the project was started in 2004 by Solntsetsvety (Солнцецветы) artistic group in Minsk (Belarus). Solntsetsvety are famous for their explosive psychedelic performances and especially bold sound experiments that paradoxically mix primitivistic lo-fi and delicate sound-work, vital juices of afro-american music and visions of Vienna symphonists. All this mash up happens within the formal frame of a standard rock band line-up (almost standard, except for the use of radio and noise pickups), and just maybe, somewhere in the distance one could catch a glimpse of that notoriously famous ‘russian soul’.

Magical Unicellular Music is a desperate attempt to form and deliver somewhat valid shape of the ever-evading fabric of life. The result turned out to be simple, even primitive. Basically it turned out as protest against time, against continuous loss of memory and manic desire for changes. This manic craving for constant changes so familiar to all of us probably is the factor that makes human beings not take notice of objects and phenomena that require some in-depth study. One shouldn’t mix V.O.M. with most of the psychedelic culture, that is frequently filled with memory loss – V.O.M. suggests remembering. Remembering as much as one can, bit by bit. This is true, primitive music.

Several bands simultaneously function in the context of the Magical Unicellular Music project in different cities – V.O.M. III and V.O.M. V in Minsk, V.O.M. IV in Moscow.

704. Limbo - Beginning Part 2 - 6:15 (320 kbps)

"Joao Filipe is a Portuguese percussionist and experimental musician with explorations and participations within several genres of music production. From punk-rock, industrial, electro-acoustic experimentalism, ambient, jazz, his influences seem as diverse as his work.
Now, with his solo adventure, the idea is to explore to the maximum the percutive potencial of objects and unusual instruments, with techniques that are not very common.
Almost as a mind game of tensions and empty spaces, his compositions flow along the improvised and the organized, layer by layer, until they reach a final form... or something that appears to be one!"

802. John Ferguson - Sunday at STEIM - 6:54 (320 kbps)
(United Kingdom)

John Ferguson is an electronic musician. His work is inspired by notions of instability, and focuses on tactile approaches to the live manipulation of audio/visual materials. Predicated on listening and real-time(re)negotiation, his combinations of hacked electronics, wireless gaming controllers and custom software/mechanical systems are frequently loud and exuberant. But the resistance inherent within these instrumental ecologies significantly affects the compositional process, raising issues of causality, agency and legibility, whilst foregrounding ambiguity as an alternative to functionalism in interface design.

details: produced, composed and performed by Luca Canciello

Luca Canciello (aka Climnoizer) is a neapolitan polystrumentist musician and composer, who lives in Berlin.

His solo project is named Climnoizer.
In this project he melts down all his music influences, playing several instruments like electric guitar, synthguitar, ashbory silicon bass, el. pianos, keys & synths, manipulating sounds and programming drums, writing meticulously rhythm textures in order to give a human feel to the beat.
The final risult is an extreme electronic and noizy sound stained with funk, rock and jazzrock colours.


808. Zaoum - Live At The Lapin Vert, Lausanne, Switzerland - 3:08 (320 kbps)
(France, Switzerland)

Dragos Tara (doublebass)
Sébastien Roux (live electronics)

ZAOUM is a form of russian futurist sound poetry from the beginning of the 20th century.
The word « Zaoum » is a cross between the russian prefix za- (beyond) and the noun um (mind) and means « trans-mental ». Zaoum knows neither grammatical rules, semantical conventions , nor style norms.
This absence of rules is the starting-block of the duo ZAOUM, that brings together Dragos Tara (doublebass) and Sébastien Roux (live electronics).
This duo feeds off of mutual parasiting:
The electronics absorb the sounds of the doublebass and supply the bass with a sonic environnement that influences its improvisations, in a perpetual mouvement.
In this vicious cercle , sounds get dirty, are washed, loose their original colors before being dyed, are wrung, rarely softened, before starting a new cycle.
The recordings crashes into the synthesized sounds, before bouncing off the doublebass and its sonic clones.
The way sound fills space, wanders in it, intrigues ZAOUM, which comes in two shapes:

for small places: small rooms, flats, kitchens, bathrooms: small sound system (min 4 lap-top speakers, or radios)

for bigger venues our outdoors: Stronger sound system (min 2 loudspeakers)

Performance Instructions
Each performer must select a path from the central home point to one of the five destination points. Each path is different and varies from a straight, direct path to a labyrinthine, indirect path. Each performer should select a path most suitable to them. Each performer must select a different path and if in the case where two performers wish to select the same path, a settlement must be m ade to accommodate everyone as best as possible.

Each performer interprets the forms and textures along their selected path as the basis for free improvisation. Consider assigning your own timbre, duration, articulation, pitch, melodic or harmonic structure, etc. to the forms and textures. The only given assignment to these forms and textures is volume: dense = loud; sparse = quiet; white = silence. Since each of the five paths are different lengths, consider assigning tempo to the length of your chosen path: 1) straight line = slowest to 5) labyrinthine line = fastest. Also consider the following pitch ranges: 1) straight line = lowest range to 5) labyrinthine line = highest range.

The duration of the piece is five minutes. Each path has been marked 1–5 providing a visual guide for following the time (one notch for each minute). Since the destination point for all paths is black and ends abruptly with a white border, all performers should p lay as loud and frenzied as possible during this time and stop abruptly together on cue. During this last burst, change the manner in which you use your instrument and make sounds completely different from what you played before. The red outline along your path will indicate when to begin this activity.

811. Sculpture - Life Among the Mechanoids - 8:14 (320 kbps)
(United Kingdom)

Sculpture is a collaboration between Dan Hayhurst (audio devices) and Reuben Sutherland (visual devices).

In this piece, Life Among the Mechanoids, Mr Sutherland’s input is projected entirely across the astral plane .We therefore request listeners utilise Mr Hayhurst’s composition as an instrument by means of which they may psychically obtain the correct frequency for reception.

This music is realised using several tape recorders, a sampler, a computerised sequencer, a spring reverb, a compressor, a digital delay line, and other gadgets.

Somewhere between these two statements lies the crux of the matter.

902. Joan Silver Pin - Tango Argentino - 2:57 (320 kbps)

Alexander Senko (Russian Federation) - prepared double bass, electric piano, guitar, sound design.
Paul Andreev (UK) - trumpet, percussion
arranged and mixed by Alexander Senko

Branched out in 2004 from the Moscow Acoustic Architecture Studio, JOAN SILVER PIN (aka J.S.P.) naturally summed up the results of long-time collaboration between the Russia most prominent electronic, jazz and rock artists.
The interactions between very diverse musicians lead to the creation of so-called genreless music. The ideas come mostly from literature, paintings, movies, etc, and gradually take melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, and timbre shapes without any dominance of genre, style or concept over emotional perceptions by the artists involved. JSP easily talk in riddles with academic, electro acoustic, jazz, rock, ethnic and pop music. They do not create nothing new, but express the common by uncommon means, avoid iterations and affectations. Something closer to post-modern ideology, but in fact it’s just another occurrence of the mature artistic performance.
Incorporating electronics, traditional instrumentations, esoteric vocalizations as well as atypical arrangement and production techniques, JSP sonic landscapes can earn the praise among a diverse variety of different audiences. The group relies most often on the experimental ambient aesthetic with subtly changes in content and timbre, mixing a warm, clean fusion of deliberate analog synths, gentle guitars, stark trumpet, smart percussive bits, loose and forceful vocal improvisations.

905. Giustino Di Gregorio - I Residenti - 1:49 (320 kbps)

Workman on an actual "assembly line", Giustino Di Gregorio has always been interested in the idea of deconstruction-reconstruction-(s)composition. During his childhood his grandfather Gabriele Olivieri, a carpenter, taught him the creative manipulation of wood. Later on he applied these theories to the field of 8mm cinematography and, as result, improved his sensibility towards "decomposition". The approach in his present musical experiments, initiated by the enormous possibilities of modern technology, beget in him a frantic and voracious need to throw everything together ("saccheggio sonoro a 360°") without discriminating any musical sources, but with a particular interest to '50s/'60s blues and jazz. Giustino has developed a very original style in which plagiarism and schizophrenia chase one another generating an undeniable sonic-alchemic balance.

908. Joe Frawley - Mistress of Ceremonies - 4:07 (320 kbps)
(United States)

Artists Statement:
"I am a pianist/composer/sound collage artist whose work falls between the cracks of several different genres, though I manage to find an audience with the "dark-ambient" and "experimental" crowds. My approach is to combine original piano music with found-sound samples, which I process electronically to simulate subconcious states. I'm particularly interested in the effects of recontextualized speech samples and how they interact with each other to create new meanings. I also try to exploit the musical qualities of speech and aim to put the spoken voice on equal footing with musical (and other) sounds. The resulting work invariably suggests a narrative, though I try not to impose a particular story upon the the listener, preferring instead the individual and subjective interpretations of imaginative minds. "Mistress of Ceremonies" is an excerpt from an upcoming audio release- my fifth collection of pieces- entitled "Ritual Research", scheduled for early 2009."

909. Alissid Jazz - Autumnish - 9:25 (320 kbps)

Интуитивная импровизация – это магия, чувственный диалог между музыкантами и слушателем. Это музыка, которая, будучи сыгранной однажды, никогда не повторится. Для творчества Alissid Jazz вообще характерна яркая образность, изобразительность музыкальных тем и зарисовок. Спонтанные эмоциональные импровизации во время концертов, появление самых неожиданных людей и инструментов на выступлениях Alissid Jazz – нормальное явление, как для кого-то – играть заученные произведения. Концерты интуитивной импровизации Alissid Jazz и тувинского шамана Николая Ооржака (горловое пение) вылились в отдельный проект и альбом «Oorjazz!», который раскупается через Интернет во всех странах.
Пьеса Autimnish – «осенне» - это импровизация, рожденная на студийной репетиции и записанная в режиме реального времени.

Intuitive improvisation is magic that braces musicians altogether with the audience. This type of music, once played, can be never repeated. Alissid Jazz is a band that has been known for the bright imaginary of their compositions and themes. Spontaneous, emotional improvisations, various musicians with all sorts of unexpectedly exotic musical instruments at the performances of Alissid Jazz is a usual thing, just like it’s usual for someone to play only what’s learned by heart. The joint performances of Alissid Jazz and the famous Tuvan shaman Nikolay Oorjak (throat singing) grew into a self consistent project and a CD album “Oorjazz!” that is being sold through the Internet all over the world.
“Autumnish” is a live studio realtime-recorded improvisation.

913. Foolk - Fiona - 2:26 (320 kbps)
(Slovak Republic)

Foolk's music is colourful trip to the world of samples, funny breaks, turntablism and well-known motives in unknown contexts. Creative sampling with endless limits from the old-time jazz records to street rush or else the smell of industrial cities environment's sound made into music beyond recognition. Abstract hip hop beats, jazz or intelligent dance music in one dadaistic package. Master of sampling with specific sound, that is impossible to delimitate in genres.
Foolk was formed in 2004 as Dusan Vanco's one-man alter ego. One year later, Something like Jazz EP released on German Node records started his solo career. Later he regularly performs in Radio_FM and Slovak television, festivals such as Wilsonic, Pohoda, Nu Jazz Dayz, Spring Festival Graz or lot of Clubs. In 2008 is his first LP Red Pills for Daddy out on prestigious label Deadred Records.
