Obstacle My Arms is a solo project of Paul Harrison, who has been playing around with sounds since the late 1980s. He has been part of the noise group Smell & Quim and now does various styles using different project names. His main project throughout most of these years has been Expose Your Eyes. On his new OMA Remix Project he delivers 8 tracks of minimalist hypnotic music, based on reworks of album And here we are. A perfect soundtrack for meditative state of a mind.
We are glad to release Antibodies, four brand new tracks by Amsterdam-based experimental noise duo Glice (Ruben Braeken and Melle Kromhout).

Tales from a lonely tree is the 2nd album of Pura Sombar, duo of Kecap Tilil & Kecap Tuyul, who collaborated by file exchange between 2008 and 2013 approximatively. It has firstly been published in April 2010 on CD-R by the now defunct COmmA label.

It is a work of sound evocations around Charles Olson’s Maximus Poems. I use a projectivist method, freely inspired by the theoretical work of the American poet. In the field of possibilities thus opened, this research allows spatialization in a neutral listening space.
This work was developed during a stay at the Performing Arts Forum, a kind of European Black Mountain College.”
The ghost between the strings is an old guitar-based solo project of Kecap Tuyul which emerged from silence in 2006 and vanished slowly during the early 2010’s. The 4 tracks of La réponse des nuages were recorded between February and April 2011 but never published before. This shows the quietest side of the project, focusing on deep drones and simple distant melodies.
Face à Face, Episode 2, Saison 3 is the new issue of a serie of cut-up compositions by Ayato. It consists of playing in real time two tapes with two different multitrack recorders, which gives 4 stereo sounds side A in normal play and side B in reverse added to others sounds played depending on which way the wind is blowing with the others devices. Some Loops have been created during the mixing process. Cassettes are from private collection, gifts, prepared and found tapes, archives…
