For going beyond the laptop clichés, that is, as a first listen to A Post-Fordist Parade in the Strike of Events - (etre)'s debut album - clearly demonstrates: vocals, toys, and all kinds of guitars and percussion instruments unceremoniously blend in with field recordings and custom Max/MSP patches. Under a glitch guise, (etre)'s music hides a resolutely personal approach combining melodicism, collage, lyricism, and a sharp sense of digital textures. Ekkehard Ehlers, Tim Hecker and Greg Davis come to mind, not because (etre) sounds like them, but because he sounds as unmistakably unique as them. The 11 tracks on A Post-Fordist Parade in the Strike of Events form a loose suite of sorts, like the successive dreams of a restless night. The album also includes an extra track, Search and Destroy White Calligraphy", accompanied by a remarkable video signed Virgilio Villoresi and Giuseppe Chiesa. (etre) is the project of Italian sound artist Salvatore Borrelli, who was first active in the fields of sound art installation and experimental performance art. A member of the collective iXem, he has worked with interior decorator Lin-Kuhn Liao and ceramist Fabrizio Quintelmo.

ZUYDERVELT, RUTGER - STAY TUNED

'Stay Tuned' started as an installation with many speakers, all of which dedicated to a continuous loop of a group of instruments playing an A note, as if they were tuning up. Visitors walk freely in this environment, literally walking through the orchestra; each step they ... read more »

MIEVILLE, EMMANUEL - FOUR WANDERINGS IN TROPICAL LANDS

Someone is gently knocking on metal; a dog is barking in the distance; far away, an Arabic-sounding voice, maybe a muezzin's, can be heard; insects buzz over a background of human activity. With his microphones, Emmanuel Mieville captures moments of reality in exotic lands ... read more »

ALLARD, EMMANUEL - NOUVELLES UPANISHADS DU YOGA

Baskaru is now up to 25 releases, and each one is unique, but none are as singular as 'Nouvelles Upanishads Du Yoga', a series of deep reflections on feedback, sound synthesis, and the art of substraction. Paris-based visual and sound artist Emmanuel Allard has been making ... read more »

 

PERRIER, LAURENT - PLATEFORME #1

PERRIER, LAURENT - PLATEFORME #1

First and foremost, 'Plateforme' is a concept, a restrictive framework Laurent Perrier imposed on himself: to create an electroacoustic piece using solely a set of sound sources provided by a "collaborator." The first three fruits of this vast sonic transmutation ... read more »

WOLLSCHEID, ACHIM -& BERNHARD SCHREINER- - CALIBRATED CONTINGENCY

This CD presents a stereo mix of a continuous 47-minute live performance recorded in Graz in 2011. And what a performance it is: a complex fabric of mangled frequencies, raw electricity, odd sounds, clips and glitches, woven loosely, with silent holes here and there. ... read more »

 

WHETHAM, SIMON - WHAT MATTERS IS THAT IT MATTERS

WHETHAM, SIMON - WHAT MATTERS IS THAT IT MATTERS

Unlike most of Whetham's previous works, this album is not focused on a specific geographical location. As if the artist had given himself free reign. The resulting music has a career-encompassing feel, as Whetham touches base with pure field recordings, elongated ... read more »
