Living Torch
Super Tip! Living Torch, through its unique structural form and harmonic material, is a bold continuation of Kali Malone’s demanding and exciting body of work, while opening new perspectives and increasing the emotional potential of the music tenfold. As such, Living Torch is a major new piece by the composer and adds a significant milestone to an already fascinating repertoire. Departing from the pipe organ that Malone’s music is most notable for, Living Torch features a complex electroacoustic…

Drumming Up Trouble (LP)
Black Truffle is thrilled to announce Drumming Up Trouble, the first release of previously unissued music by Alvin Curran on the label. Collecting works recorded between 2018-2021 and a side-long epic dating back to the early 80s, as the title suggests, Drumming Up Trouble focuses on a hitherto almost unknown aspect of Curran’s encyclopaedic and omnivorous musical world: his experiments with sampled and synthesised percussion. As Curran’s wonderful, wildly sweeping liner notes make clear, his fa…

Tip! Tip! Tip! *25 copies limited edition. In process of stocking, only a few available.* The Logic of Chaos is the latest release of Elisa Batti for the label One Instrument that gathers music composed over a period of 3 years.

Chasing the Phantom (LP)
Dewa Alit, Bali's master of contemporary Gamelan composition, returns to Black Truffle with Chasing the Phantom, presenting two recent works played by the composer's Gamelan Salukat, a large ensemble that performs on instruments specially built to his designs, using a unique tuning system that combines notes from two traditional Balinese Gamelan scales. Alit explains that the ensemble's name suggests "a place to fuse creative ideas to generate new, innovative works" and both compositions demonst…

Plastic Love (Tape)
*40 copies limited edition. 2022 stock* Can noise be romantic? Is it true that high volume sound helps to meditate? Can noise music be highly emocional? Will density make us float? It is these and others questions that Peak Bleak propose to answer in “Plastic Love”. Created from electric emanations, from three transformers captured with an electromagnetic pickup, modulated and reworked in real time in Desterro’s basement. Roughness, feedbacks and hauntings from fragmented melodies. Ephemeral noi…

The first part of the album is clearly driven by good-old Industrial elements getting the listener back to the 80s. The tracks are mainly carried by strong Industrial percussion mixed with dark sounds and noises. You’ll n…

Aldan (Tape)
*2022 stock* These are images of a dark and cold Siberia engraved in the memory of a child. It is about a high mountain where the snow never melts, about empty streets, about an exploited mighty nature, abandoned with its guts spilling out. It is about a shattered nuclear plant, and black mornings when the freezing air stings the skin with its chilly needles. Landscapes that the child observes quietly, within a very slow motion of time, on which children hover.

Light Colours In Jyderup (Tape)
*111 copies limited edition. 2022 stock* ‘Light Colours In Jyderup’ is a trademark Marta Forsberg composition – in a relatively short space of time, the Swedish composer is able to transform the simplest of sonic materials into the most magical, transcendent experience. Using only vocals and some effects, she makes a handful of students from a tiny Danish town sound both alien and medieval; the way the piece unfolds is graceful, its tone and feeling is sacred yet warm, like a Christmas carol fro…

Making Eye Contact With Solitude (Tape)
*70 copies limited edition glitter gold cassette* Polish artist Martyna Basta presents Making Eye Contact With Solitude, a suite of intimate, diaristic ambient pieces assembled over the past several months. Created using almost exclusively field recordings and her voice (alongside violin, zither and harpsichord), this collection meditates on domesticity, loneliness, repetitiveness, stubborn patterns of isolated minds and the sonic mysteries all around us. There’s a real gentleness to these spont…

Bečvou (Tape)
Bečva is a river located in the Eastern part of Czech Republic. In September 2020, several chemical leaks into the river caused the poisoning and subsequent death of 40 tons of wildlife in the waterway – an unprecedented catastrophe. Growing up in Přerov, Bečva was an ever-present part of Tomáš Niesner’s youth and this environmental disaster affected him deeply. In an effort to understand the river better and inspired by Werner Herzog’s ‘Of Walking in Ice’, Niesner set out on a journey from the …

Things That May Not Be Connected (Tape)
Enigmatic musician David Wesley Sutton, better known under his LXV alias, joins Warm Winters Ltd. with a pair of process-oriented pieces. Both revolve around very short samples played through various different devices, which allowed Sutton to reconfigure them in a live “playing” kind of environment. Rather than endlessly repetitious, these loops are like amorphous forms, constantly shifting, evolving, always drawing your attention to a different moment within their short duration. The title “Thi…

Recommended if you like: dark drone and ambient, experimental electronics, raw minimalism, noise, and free-floating strings. Just like Zoloto’s previous release, “Ghosting” on the Russian CANT label, “Pleasure Prison” is deeply immersed in psychogeography: before relocating to Spain just before the pandem…

Juxtaposition II (Blitz Opposition) (Tape)
Tip! *2022 Stock. In process of stocking.* A turbulent quartet of Oslo-based improvisers brings the house down with two voices, bass, guitar, and drums ⏤ RIYL free voice, skronk, jazz negativity, dub effects, Naked City and Painkiller.

Utku Tavil punc…

Winter War (Tape)
2022 Stock. In process of stocking. Petrozavodsk is a dub-metal trio based in Moscow and Barcelona. The sound of their debut combines venomous guitar chords, ultra-heavy bass frequencies, and mind-numbing primitive drums with dub effects on the snare and the hi-hat. Side A, “Winter” is slow-churning dubbed-out drone metal, with feedbacking jet-engine guitar lines that at times sound closer to Ellen Fullman than metal riffs. Caveman drums on side B, “War” possess a tribal feel, and are punctuated…

In the middle of winter of 2017, two Marias visited Murmansk, Russia, a fjord city 2° north of the Arctic Circle, to play a rather short but very inspired set of solo a…

Verzamelen II (Tape)
*150 copies limited edition* Verzamelen II is the second volume in a retrospective series in which we look back at the work of Wouter van Veldhoven (Netherlands). Throughout the past decade, the Dutch composer built an impressive catalogue of music in which tape loop and modular synthesis experiments hold a central place. Both collaborations and solo-work saw the light through some distinctive labels such as Slaapwel, The Tapeworm, Umor Rex and Digitalis among others. With this series we want to…

Full Circle Reworks (Tape)
*150 copies limited release* Foam and Sand is the ambient soundscape and visual project of award-winning composer and conceptual artist, Robot Koch. Inspired by the composer’s daily habit of meditation, ideas for the project started to take shape during the lockdown of 2020, growing organically under the radar until Full Circle was officially announced in 2021. Using tape recordings of slowed-down pianos, modular synths, and other sonic sources, Full Circle is a collection of 16 warm and organic…
