[Eg0_207] a.d.du.nord : Sana Grano (E.P.)

A.d.du.nord is a musician who doesn’t work in a particular style but is guided by ideas of the moment without feeling compelled to maintain a single sound aesthetic. His first releases have been a few minimalist drone tracks published in 2018. He now aims to create some kind of “post-music” that is “strange and dysfunctional”. In short, a.d.du.nord is a project for free experimentation, where everything is possible.

Sana Grano is some kind of mixtape that gathers ten one minute long improvised sequences created with granular synthesis tools. The choice of samples was purely intuitive, and the results are partially aleatory. But if you listen between the lines, you may find reminscences of dub and afrobeat.

[Eg0_206] Xavier Mussat : Provided for Courses

After 5 years spent exploring improvised and noise guitar, Xavier Mussat opened a parenthesis without his usual instrument. He recorded abstract sound ambiances to be used as background sounds to accompany the work of his students during the intuitive drawing classes he gives. Here simplicity prevailed : he used the cheap internal microphone of his computer and several objects (bowls, balls, crumpled paper, table, prepared banjo), as well as remixed sounds taken from videos of snowy landscapes. Experimenting with the austerity of a minimalist aesthetic, he extracted 4 tracks from these raw textures and materials.

[Eg0_205] M.A.K.T. Sono : ‘UNK

Since their beginnings in February 2018, M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul) have been experimenting with different set-ups and ways of playing. Amongst them, they like to play both on the same instruments / set-ups in the same time. It’s what they did on ‘UNK.0, an improvisation played on a no-input mixer. The other tracks of this EP are electronic compositions by Kecap Tuyul and Doedelzak using this improvisation as only sound material.

[Eg0_204] Ayato : Face à face, épisode 2, saison 1

Face à face, épisode 2, saison 1, the new album of Ayato is the 2nd part of a cut-up recomposition series recorded and mixed at La Ferme Là, Olivet, France between 2015 and 2017. 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…

[Eg0_203] Anastasia Vronski : Estrangements (volume 2)

Anastasia Vronski is a versatile experimental musician from Perm, Russia. Since years she has been creating an impressive and quite diverse body of work. Many of her tracks can be classified as “drone “or “noise”, but they always have a specific, often intriguing qualities. Above all, she’s not an artist who will do the same twice, and maybe that’s why some of her pieces are sometimes published separately. Since we thought many of them deserved more exposure, we decided to make a selection of such works in a compilation album : Estrangements, published in two volumes. While first one consisted of 4  minimal conceptual pieces, second one is made of 10 shorter tracks focusing on mysterious ambiances and dense sound textures. One of them, “the pack” wasn’t published before and was made specially for this compilation. The selection of tracks was made by the artist and the label, trying to make the compilation as cohesive as possible. We hope it will make you curious to discover more works from her.

[Eg0_202] z(xW+yV) : 3×2(1W+18V)

z(xW+yV) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear : for instance with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier. It was initially thought as lo-fi version of the Failure Circle project with chaotic feedback system of the no-input mixer in a more portable way, but finally took a quite different direction, with a more tactile & acoustic dimension.

3×2(1W+18V) is the first published album of this project. It was recorded in june 2018 with lo-fi means (cell phone and a cheap digital recorder). Each track is a mix of 2 improvisations played with the most primitive form of z(xW+yV) : one contact microphone, one 1W battery-powered amplifier and two guitar effects (overdrive and equalization). The second album with feature only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers), like the latest samples posted on soundcloud.

[Eg0_201] M.A.K.T. Sono : 11 songs

M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul)’s second album « 11 songs » is made of selected and edited improvisations recorded during the “M.A.K.T. Sono (sans sono)” residency at Le Magasin – Laboratoire de permanence chorégraphique (Mathieu Heyraud) – Saint-Etienne – November 4-9 2018.

Since their beginnings in February 2018  the duo has been working with modular set-ups that are likely to provoke unstable situations (like the soundbox, analog synthesizer and no-input mixer used in their first album “If you were a clarinet”).  This time they played with microphones, voices, analog synthesizers, and small battery-powered amplifiers, forming a modular set-up whose elements can be interconnected in various ways. They also experimented the integration of some song-material in their improvisations.
Magali Albespy made some videos of the residency, they can be viewed from her site

Artists Info

Magali Albespy is a dancer and performer. She likes to question the borders between formats and artistic disciplines. She explores real-time composition with body, video and sound.
Self-taught improviser Kecap Tuyul uses various (and preferably unstable) tools, looking for ways of playing and interacting (with sounds, with other media, with other people) and questioning the traditional ideas of instrumental mastership and composition.
