Ragnarok (LP)
Silence present a vinyl reissue of Ragnarök's self-titled debut album, originally released on the same label in 1976. Some music never becomes dated and this debut record by Ragnarök from Kalmar in Sweden is just filled with that kind of music. Many listeners have tried to describe the music they have carried in their hearts throughout a whole life or just discovered. They all say it does not sound like anything else they have heard, some say it sounds like looking at water, others that i…

A Jamais / Ping (LP)
This is the third album by Laurent Perrier’s “Pylône”, Laurent’s experimental electro-acoustic project. Entirely composed and performed with modular synthesisers, it consists of 2 long tracks stretching across each side of the LP. Side A: “A jamais” was produced with the writings and sampled voice of multimedia artist Lyne Vermes. Her words are dissolved into a stream of digital treatments, creating new textures, long waves. With the use of granular synthesis it stretches out only to end up in s…

Minus Plus Escapism (LP)
Minus Plus Escapism is the third album from Everest Magma, which follows "Modern/Antique" and "Gnosis", both released by Boring Machines.This record is inspired by Salvia Divinorum. It has been played using an acoustic guitar, voice, various effects and tape recordings. It’s acoustic music which sounds like an electronic record, or maybe the contrary. There are songs but there are no lyrics to it, the voice is an instrument, but you can sing along if you so wish. What emerges is a blues for the …

Bloom Into Night (LP)
Bloom Into Night is the new album from ByMyDelay, the solo project of Marcella Riccardi (Blake/e/e/e, Franklin Delano, Massimo Volume) started in 2011, initially as a one-woman band with an array of loopers end effects to accompany her own songs. During time she got closer to a lysergic kind of folk music, always in between British Folk and West Coast style and in recent times she further opened the structures of her songs, which became more and more stretched out and free-form, like a river wit…

Steadfast on our Sand (LP)
Steadfast on our Sand is a documentary about landscape creation and nature control. A mesmeric film about the islander community and its contradictory habits and traditions. A cowboy movie with herds running in the meadow at sunset and white horses resting in the dark of the night, a documentary film about artificial nature and landscape design, a scary movie with zombies and ghosts. J.H. Guraj contributed some music to the documentary by Zimmerfrei and we liked it so much we decided to release …

Black Water
Jim Fox’s music is usually noted for its quietude and ambling pace. In the mid-1980s, however, he drifted from these defining stylistic penchants for a couple of years, penning music that often bounced along, energetically and loudly, at a good clip. His clangorous Black Water, from 1984, is rich with dense, sometimes shimmering, sometimes rumbling tremolos and loudly struck chords covering the full range of the piano, set off by brief moments of quiet, twinkling serenity.Jim Fox writes, “Black …

Four Thousand Holes
Four Thousand Holes is a sometimes lush, sometimes fragile, rhythmically complex and technically demanding work for piano and mallet percussion (performed by the extraordinary pianist Stephen Drury and percussionist Scott Deal) and ghostly electronic “auras”—electronic sounds created by processing the acoustic instruments’ sonorities.Unlike John Luther Adams’s other works, the pitch material used in Four Thousand Holes is drawn exclusively from Western music’s most basic elements: major and mino…

Last Cicada Singing
Four serene, unique, and entrancing pieces for solo qin (a zither-like Chinese instrument). Quiet, sparse, almost Feldmanesque, almost delta-blues-like, too. Performed by the composer, Christopher Roberts, who mastered the qin while living and teaching for many years in Taiwan. (He performs on a qin built by Lin Li-Zheng.)Christopher Roberts writes about the piece:“Chinese scholars in antiquity took their qins to the mountains to compose music in accord with the aesthetics of nature. They develo…

Sudoku 82
Sudoku 82, a spare, beautiful, spacious piece for eight pianos, was composed utilizing systems derived from Sudoku puzzles and the GarageBand computer program.Christopher Hobbs writes about the piece: “Sudoku 82 is one of a series of pieces I have been working on since 2005. There are now over 125 of them that use Apple’s GarageBand software and random procedures culled from the numbers found initially in hexadecimal Sudoku puzzles and latterly from online random number generators. I choose the …

Sult (LP)
Based upon Maja Ratkje´s music created for the ballet ”Sult” (”Hunger") by profiled director Jo Strømgren for the Norwegian National Ballet, this is a departure from records and live settings normally associated with Maja S. K. Ratkje, as we find her placed behind a modified, wiggly and out of tune pump organ, singing songs and improvising. Metal tubes, PVC tubes and a wind machine were built into the organ; guitar strings, a bass string, a resin thread, metal and glass percussion and a bow are …

Recorded in Detroit at the tail end of …

The Place We Began
John Luther Adams's The Place We Began contains four mysteriously evocative electro-acoustic works that the composer built from short recorded moments—audio fragments—of his early music (circa the early 1970s). This is not a trip down Memory Lane: in The Place We Began, Adams has reappropriated and transformed these sonic fragments into completely new works that speak to his current musical interests and directions, especially his recent installation pieces, and refer to his past only in ways th…

String Quartets
This CD presents the premiere recordings of two spirited and enticing quartets that draw on Peter Garland’s well-traveled ear and great sense of personal vision. Both works move with a unique sense of grace and a sincerity of expression that is purely Garlandesque—marked by a sometimes lively dancing, a sometimes alluring stasis, and an often sauntering gait that allow musical ideas to seem to appear intuitively and develop subconsciously..Performed and recorded beautifully by members of the ren…
