    Betacicadae – Mouna (Vinyl)

    ,
    Clear vinyl in handmade printed sleeve and insert. Individually numbered edition of 100, each one-of-a-kind. Includes download code for bonus material. Painstakingly constructed by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Scott Davis during more than two years of spiritual struggle and rebirth, ‘betacicadae: mouna’ is a lush, transcendental narrative in sound. It is a cohesive whole that employs a broad spectrum of textures and extends far beyond formula like “drone” or “field recordings.” The sounds absorb, project, embrace, and comfort the listener in imaginary geography—surreal, dreamlike spaces beween earth and otherworldliness. ‘mouna’ is an intimate personal statement, but also a universal musical narrative of redemption. Source material for each track began with field recordings: a farm in Oregon, a rainforest in Hawaii, different cities. An array of acoustic and electronic sounds were generated from scratch: instruments included guitars (electric, bass, lap steel), wood flute, vibraphone, harp, violin, percussion, synthesizers, effects pedals, and digital software. Elegua Records is proud to present this debut release by betacicadae. Beginning with photographic images by Davis, the design, printing, and construction of the album’s physical editions are approached with the care and depth of feeling that the music deserves. Taking the label’s handmade DIY approach to limited editions a step further, clear vinyl and compact disc editions of 100 will include one-of-a-kind screen printed, stamped, and individually numbered inserts and transparencies. The physical editions will also include a unique download code with access to high-quality digital files of the album and bonus material.

    IO – Flamenco Abstractions

    ,
    Handmade, individually numbered edition of 300… Electro-acoustic artist David Font and guitar virtuoso Jose Luis Rodríguez have taken flamenco music into a bold new realm of performed deconstruction, offering a live dialogue between a primordial tradition’s multi-layered history and the crackle and hum of our 21st century digital soundscape. Rodriguez’s lush, polyrhythmic patterns and ornate chords provide the project’s whole cloth, while Font tugs and pulls at the strands in real time, deconstructing, altering and re-introducing Rodriguez’s expert playing as both rhythmic counterpoint and delicate washes of electronic echo and fuzz. The duo’s work expands the state of the art for both electro-acoustic technique and flamenco tradition, creating a fluid new musical dialect. They create experimental music that works on its own terms—not for novelty’s sake, but in search of beauty and transcendence in the moment. The results are hypnotic, strange, and surprisingly elegant. All of the recordings are realized in real time (i.e., no overdubs), allowing the artists’ affinity and decades-long experience to shape the music through a process based more on intuition and sensitivity than fixed design: electronics radically transform acoustic guitar, hand claps, and finger snaps to create intuitive feedback structures able to express a sensitivity that approaches the telepathic.
