[Eg0_120] DR : May

DR offers us an EP of minimal ambient music mixing synthesizer and field recordings.
With its floating atmospheres based on simple but touching melodies, May is a perfect exemple of the emotional side of ambient music – a calming, and quite melancholic soundtrack for introspective, dreamy moments.

Presentation by the artist:
“DR is a Ambient project from Braunschweig, Germany. Uses Synthesizers, Field Recordings, Tape Loops, Pedals & some digital Effects to create Melancholy, Deep, Ambient / Drone Soundscapes”

[Eg0_119] Mescalibur : Larmes de feu

In his new album Larmes de feu (could be translated as Fire Tears), Mescalibur continues to explore the possibilities of his analogic synthesizer. This time the mood is rather dark and heavy. These 3 improvised tracks were indeed directly inspired by an intense state of pain caused by a long-term illness. Philippe of Mescalibur wrote more about this in text below (in french only, sorry) so we won’t add more on this subject. All we can say is that the musical result is a powerful tornado of sounds – minimal pulsations boosted and intensified until becoming slabs of sizzling noises or disintegrating themselves into crackling spectral drones- that should appeal to fans of experimental electronics and raw old school industrial

” Qui ? Quoi ? Ecoute, parle, l’autre et puis je ne sais pas plouf plouf, rien n’existe que je puisse prendre au sérieux,
il n’y a pas si longtemps tout était devant, là au premier plan, tout devait s’emboiter vite et parfaitement, une urgence insatiable .
La douleur est venu me disputer ce corps, l’habiter conjointement, me voilà colocataire sans avoir le moindre avis à émettre .
Tout le reste devient si flou et si distant, me voilà complètement fagocité, ligoté, puis petit à petit désassemblé , démonté morceau par morceau,
je navigue d’une douleur à l’autre, essayant de les rassembler, je me roule en boule, piéger la douleur dans ce corps et m’en extirper
sans passer par la case départ .
Voilà ça plane plus rien ne m’intéresse, je trouve toute cette agitation tellement ridicule, une Kyrielle d’égos aboyants des mots, tout ça
pour gouverner le monde, les autres, l’autre, juste eux même .
Rien plus rien, un troupeau de bovins bovinant bruyamment. Mais la vache produit du lait en quantité, le veau, boit le lait de la vache,
son regard s’éteint et il devient estomacs, peut être devrions nous ne plus boire le lait des bovins afin de redevenir humains .
Marcher à nouveau sur nos pattes de derrière, pour aller les uns derrière les autres au cinéma, au super marché, voter !
Puis à nouveau Boviner de concert, sans fin .
Peux pas regarder en arrière, y’a pas d’arrière, tout est là, instant, instantané, immédiat .
Toujours vivant, tellement vivant que ça fini par vous déchirer la mémoire qui vous vomi à la gueule tout vos arrières .
Mais y’a pas de passé, y’a que l’histoire, nos histoires vautrées sur nos vies, laminant nos corps de leurs souffrances .
Parfois je me dit pas plus loin, mais le plus loin, y’a pas, c’est comme l’arrière ni plus ni moins !
Alors je suis toujours là, je me tiens dans l’instant de ma vie, ainsi sans fin, écoutant tomber mes arrières dans mes plus loins,
sans mots pour dire, alors je pleure, l’histoire s’écoule par mes yeux, pour chaque larmes un corps se tord et puis s’efface,
mais rien n’est dit du début ou de la fin . “

 

[Eg0_117] Spleen : Detest

Spleen is an one-man project from Serbia which mixes dark ambient and atmospheric rock. Detest is an epic concept album dealing with the theme of misanthropy. It starts with an hypnotic ritual sequence, but later tracks also contains lots of industrial rock elements.  All along the album, bleak drones, crushing guitar riffs, pounding rythms and haranguing voices join their forces to take the listener into a world of morbid fixations and reclusive anger . If you are not afraid to explore the depth of such negative feelings, Detest will be a perfect soundtrack for your dark ruminations.

[Eg0_116] Icoste : Dysthymia

Icoste is a solo project of electronic musician Stéphane Jeanin from Belmont, USA. Dysthymia is one of his most experimental works to date. This amazing album has an overall opressive and dark feeling expressed through various means – eerie floating voices, minimal drones, swirling alien pads that sometimes turn into noisy electronic storms. The whole forms a deep sonic experience that becomes more and more powerful track after track, culminating with the complex and crushing rythmical sequences of Negation of Nihilism and the final fireworks of Ideas Fork Bomb.

Notes by the artist :

“Icoste is an aspect of my personality that I concretized in a musical project during 2005. It allows me to express myself through music. It may contain elements of hardcore techno, ambient or experimental, depending on what I want to express.
Dysthymia is a “catharsis” album that allows me to make other understand and feel the way I experience daily life through my “medical peculiarity”.

[Eg0_115] The Inner Shore : Extracts From Of An Unknow Science

The Inner Shore continues his exploration of abstract droning soundscapes with a well-titled new album Extracts From Of An Unknow Science. A very personal blend of minimalist electronic atmospheres and disorienting microtonal shifts.

[Eg0_114] Luciftias : Chronic Pentatonic

After several collaborations with eg0cide’s team, Luciftias finally brings a first solo album on the label. Chronic Pentatonic is one of his most subtle and ambitious works to our ears. This guitar-based piece was inspired by Steve Reich’s composition methods, using loops of various lengths, here with a ambient approach. The result is a very organic, slowly evolving drone that deserves an active listening although it can also be enjoyed as background music.
