Luciftias : Staring into Oblivion [Eg0_256]

We welcome back long time contributor John Beers aka Luciftias with a new album of subtle droning ambient, featuring contributions of his cousin and collaborator Caleb Beers. Like most of his work, Staring Into Oblivion is based on guitar sounds, often heavily treated but more reconizable on some tracks here – and always hypnotic.

Failure Circle : Frozen Clinamen #6 [Eg0_255]

Direct download links : Wav / Flac / Mp3 / Artwork

Frozen Clinamen is serie of works by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) started on autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up (and sometimes other modular set-ups) and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions : all the sounds included in these works are recordings of moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #6  was recorded and mixed between March 2019 and June 2022 using no-input mixer and analog synthesizer.

Artwork by Jules-Valentin Boucher

Methodology
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking, then recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.

Paperclip Crown : Feedback Jams [Eg0_254]

Paperclip Crown is the artist moniker of Valentine, an amateur non-binary experimental, noise, and ambient musician. Their EP Feedback Jams was made by improvising with mixer and microphone. The result is quite surprising, subtle and raw in the same time.

Nicolas Tourney : Music for Piano [Eg0_251]

Nicolas Tourney is a french experimental musician and sound designer, also owner of the label Snow in Water Records. His new album Music for Piano focuses on the acoustic properties of the instrument used in various ways in order to generate rich and subtle resonances. But the artist himself says it more precisely :

“Entirely recorded in the hours of the night, in order to capture very low amplitude sounds that neighboring noises would have made imperceptible, the twelve configurations of Music for Piano reflect research on vibration. The piano used is a late 19th century German grand piano, allowing, when it is wide open, all kinds of placements, preparations, rebounds. Some drones evolved continuously for several days in a row, in order to see the gradual emergence of new timbres produced by the microscopic movements of objects inside the piano. By releasing a resonance rather than a note, the pressure of the keys then opening a void, other modes of play have required tools with a roundabout function and instruments that our daily habits have made their own.”
