BABEL: RILLINGEN

Babel : Rillingen

61:46 // Pro CD-R, thermal print // Vellum sleeve // Numbered edition of 50

$9-Buy With Immediate Download

$8-Buy CD Only (Canada)

$8-Buy CD Only (Rest of World)

$6-Download Only

While the city the rumbles with the subterranean boom of frost-quakes, RILLINGEN (meaning “Shivers” or “Chills” in Dutch) burrows deep into a frozen landscape of trembling souls, burning themselves to keep warm as they freeze to death in an orgy of winter ecstasy.

On this hour-long polar vortex of solo electric guitar improvisations, BABEL‘s more lyrical side returns to join the percussive, extended techniques of the previous two EPs—HEURTER and STURM und DRANG—finally bringing two halves of BABEL into one cohesive whole.

Recorded live, direct to 2-track on Mothers Day, 2013, in six takes (three of which make up the 37-minute closer) using echo loops and, fittingly (though pun not intended), an Electro-Harmonix “Freeze” pedal.

Michelle Proksell (aka Muted Rainbow) resides in Beijing and loves/lives China as a dreammachine of animated .gif images, weird montages and awesome t-shirts. She also makes music through an open site of collaborative gradient exchange called Ѫΰϯᶓԃ Ʀѧϊᵰѣѻὦ: deaf improvisation based on colors and hues, blue(s) gospels in unknown languages, seas of shimmering drones, electro-acoustic processing and outdated acid folk. Classical without class, psychedelic without psyche, songwriting without writing. 

Intuitions is the result of sparse improvisational sessions conjured in Shanghai bedrooms and living rooms during 2012. Hours worth of recordings were trimmed, mixed and mastered with poetic freedom at Zulmàt studio in Rome, Italy. For this incarnation, Ѫΰϯᶓԃ Ʀѧϊᵰѣѻὦ involved Michelle Proksell, Gabriele de Seta, Gregorio Samsaro and Pupa Tang, some strings and a wide array of electronics.


PARTLI CLOUDI: Two Moron Ever Nose CD

Partli Cloudi 6

Pro-duped CD-R, hand-assembled folders, edition of 50, stamped,  sticker-sealed, 12 tracks. Wonderment.

Buy w/ immediate download – $8

Buy CD only – $7

From Canada’s far-left coast, a deep folkloric journey into the library of the transcendental mind. Twelve cuts of spoken word collages, tribal percussions and  primal psychedelias.

Stephen Wolf (of noise combo Summer Amp and avant improv trio New Yaki) returns in his solo form from a far too-long hiatus. This isn’t the bedroom cut-up of yester-year, this is cabin fever-induced hallucinations for the now. What will the future bring? Tomorrow never knows, but Partli Cloudi is a window into the present state of world (un)conciousness.

Mad/Mod : “Neurinomes” Second Edition

14/07/2013

Neur2

78 mins // Pro CD-R, thermal print // Sticker-sealed fold-out sleeve// Numbered edition of 25

 SOLD OUT!

We’re very excited to announce the 2nd run of Mad/Mod‘s debut album Neurinomes. This numbered edition of 25 copies differs from the sold out first edition in that the cover image is indigo instead of magenta and a typo in the liner notes has been corrected. The track listing and audio content remains identical.

Info:

Neurinomes (a type of nerve tumor that can affect the inner ear) is the haunting debut by the duo of Montreal-based reed player Marc-Antoine Dagenais (Mad) and guitarist Dominic Marion (Mod).

Shimmering drones and angular melody lines dance and collapse against hazy ambiance and fractured glass surfaces; ecstatic meditations give way to deep noir melancholy and fiery avant expressionism.

The album revolves around improvisation, rewriting of improvised sounds, resonant mappings, organic acousmatic, combination tones; a process one may call recomposition, using recordings of spontaneous interactions as draft mapping, free to be reinvestigated and refined. All timbers were produced solely by miking acoustic sources. With the exception of a wine glass slowed down to a low drone, these soundscapes remain faithful to original acoustic production.

The duo has developed  their own vocabulary through research of improvised music based on harmonic specters, thoroughly experimenting in the fields of peculiar textures and frictions that their instruments can provide. Marion often, but not always, treats his guitar signal through a certain range of effects, working a specter of textures, going from delicate jazzy chords to screaming organ like sounds. Blending with those amplified sounds, Dagenais uses different extended techniques (trumpet sounds, multiphonics, screams, circular breathing and others) on the saxophone and flutes as well as different parts of the instruments to produce unusual soundscapes.

File under: Chamber music, post-rock, free-jazz, late-20th century minimalism, soundscape, ambient expressionism, drone, harmonic resonance
