*2022 stock. 90 copies limited edition* "Etwas" is a new Tanuki Records cassette presenting two tracks (22:13 and 21:35 respectively) by Ilia Belorukov, Miguel A. Garcia and Alfredo Costa Monteiro, appearing for the first time as a trio. The three musicians had previously worked together in pairs: Miguel A. Garcia and Ilia Belorukov are regular collaborators (as Wolkokrots) while Monteiro has released two records with Garcia and one with Belorukov.

All three have in common a practice based on physically challenging sounds and textures sourced from minute gestures and fragile materials like paper, strings, small objects or manipulated acoustic instruments like flute and accordeon. Despite their tiny initial volume and modest origins these sounds are treated until they acquire startling dynamic contrasts ranging from quiet and subtle to violently noisy. In these two pieces the trio has built an immersive landscape that eschews conventional drone tactics for slow-motion crashing micro-events. Tidal waves of piercing tones and sheets of sizzling mesh combine to shape unknown open spaces. (b200)
