Characters at the water margin
These recordings were made at the edge of Washington state's Olympic Rainforest, where the Hoh River meets the Pacific Ocean. The point of entry to this landscape, named Oil City on the map, is no more than a place where the road widens before coming to an end at a trailhead. Just north of the road, through the trees, and on the homestead of the late Captain Hank who one day disappeared at sea, is the ghost of an oil rig and some comings and goings along a plank road. Early 20th century settlers…

Malus
"An often inspired study in post-noise atmospherics, Malus brings together three pioneering improvisers in their late thirties. Nate Wooley deploys vocalisation and extreme extended technique to turn his trumpet into a hissing steam engine and a bubbling cauldron, channelling electricity to create groggy lo-fi textures. Chris Corsano is in a reflective, exploratory mood, dragging objects across amplified skins to create queasy high-pitched drones and dull metallic rings. Double bassist Hu…

Live in Lisbon
The Freedom Principle is an album crackling with energy.  Consisting of three long tracks, none shorter than 11 minutes, the album is full of bristling creativity and expression, never feeling tired or lost. Rodrigo Amado is a musician and photographer from Lisbon, Portugal (check out his artist home page; in addition to his discography, he had a link to his pictures and a photo book, all very nice), who was involved in the burgeoning free jazz scene there in the mid to late 90's.  The start of …

Vihameditaatio
Bizarre Uproar is one of the colossal phenomenon in Finnish harsh noise scene. Throughout the years, this artist has gradually taken the Bizarre Uproar concept to more and more extreme level not only sound wise, but also ideologically fulfilling the ideas behind the sounds. Hate Meditation. Wrapped in darkness, tight as second skin. Suffocating (like) latex mask. Purification in filth and violence, cleansed in flesh and blood that are shit and piss, enlightenment in everlasting ejaculation. New …

L'Appel du Vide
Subterranean, nearly-inaudible restraint and a rushing, stuttering throb rule the night on this new record. Its electric moods are so resolutely alien they suggest worlds unknown rather than create them. Irregular heartbeat thumps are set against high end atmospheres explored in microscopic detail. Haunting overlays of tones fluctuate and tremble, and not one moment feels forced. The music is meticulously constructed and consistently surprising. The electronics spin away, shooting off int…

Mental Shake
LP version. Cafe OTO\'s tenth Otoroku release sees a return to the group that kick-started the label -- the veteran German reedsman and free-jazz pioneer Peter Brötzmann with the long-running London bass/drums partnership of John Edwards and Steve Noble. After the release of The Worse The Better, that group went on to play a series of devastating shows in Europe and to emerge as one of Brötzmann\'s finest working groups. Over the same period, Peter was developing a deep rapport with Jason A…

Lacing the Air
Lacing the Air finds the Baltimore-based Gene Pick in fine form, combining insistent rhythmic decay with modular screed and crackle. Lobotomized the Air spreads Gene Pick’s discreet, homespun electronics over three percussion collapses into deep gutters of glacial interference. Lacing varied tracks which retain a caustic internal consistency. The limber dynamics of Entre Vifs are a touchstone, as are the cracked, everyday electronics of prime-cut Voice Crack. Patience and deterioration across an…

Region VI
Vitrine is thrilled to announce its first release of 2014, the debut cassette from Texas duo Safe House. Region VI utilizes ghost electronics, distant voice and material repetition over a small banquet of ten tracks. The sub-basement claustrophobia found on ADN’s Out to Standard compilations and the Mask of the Imperial Family’s rhythmic torpor are soft reference points for an impressive volley of electronic sound. Tactics learned from the verdant mail-art culture of the 80s and 90s, refracted i…

Bestiario vol.3
Bestiario is a series of short Enrico Malatesta compositions for acoustic percussions, recorded live with no overdubs or editing; these pieces are meant to explore a multi-directional sonic dimension, still keeping a high level of tension. All the studies in the series feature extremely dense micro-structures, broken rhythms and fast tempi. The third and last volume of the series is composed by two pieces for cymbal, frame drum, bow and the crackling effects between the cymbal's edge and the ski…

The performance was planned out by Dario Sanfilippo, based on the few annotations left by Cage (which in turn followed an idea Cage took from Ma…

Abeyance
*Edition of 200* Minimalist Chicago trio return to Entr'acte with a mesmerising 40 minute study of whispering keys and crackling lower case noise. But don't get it twisted - this is not some beige modern classical, nor is it a rough copy of Basinski's 'Disintegration Loops' - it's perhaps best compared to a location recording of Morton Feldman duetting with an industrial air vent at midnight in a breezy and secluded location. The first quarter of the piece is used to shape the surroundings…

Crritic!
Two interlocking pieces dedicated to Hans Keller, Desmond Leslie and Lester Bangs. I Only Asked uses an interview recording — questions only — to modulate various sound parameters, and is a reworking of a piece first performed at Café OTO, London in March 2011. Hatchet Job is based on a computer speech recording of all the negative reviews Moliné has penned for The Wire magazine in the last ten years. These amount to around 50,000 words.
