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 »

GINTAS K - SLOW

The woman lying down sensually, dreamily, studiously too, on the cover of 'Slow' is the perfect representation of Gintas K's music: research-based music that can also seduce, music that allows your mind to focus and then wander away, to be attentive to the techniques being ... read more »
