    Enofa – Arboretum

    This is the hand made “standard” CD version of Arboretum in an edition of 50 copies. These come in hand stamped and altered black digipaks, each with a factory pressed disc. Each copy comes with a dried leaf, and is banded with a vintage arboreal obi strip. For Enofa, nature, and the inspiration derived from walking among the trees in the park and nature preserve near his home, plays a large part in the overall tone of this one long beautiful track. Like the Arboreta, which are regularly crafted to contain a range of contrasting shapes and colours, which gives them a very unique look and atmosphere, this wondrous soundscape of sorts, incorporating field recordings, moody guitars and synth, and electronic treatments perfectly reflects the calming and mysterious feel of the long and languid glorious English days of the moment. Wind chimes…the crackle of leaves underfoot….the light, swirling wind in the treetops…the sun breaking through the clouds…put this album on and you will find yourself strolling there as well!

    Narcisi & Fidanza – The Accordion Sessions

    Deluxe digipak version of this release in an edition of only 100 copies... TRS's latest offering is from Francesco Maria Narcisi & Giacomo Fidanza, and is entitled “The Accordion Sessions”. Giacomo has provided the beautifully dense and drone filled accordion ambiances, and Francesco has worked his magic manipulating and processing these sounds, with added field recordings, into a glorious and at times even industrially fueled, expansive wall of aural bliss and intensity. Melodic, and yet fiercely relentless and driving at times. TRS071 is both a fitting soundtrack to these seemingly overpowering days we live in now, and an avant homage to this favorite instrument of more peacefully innocent and nostalgic times.

    Orghanon – Retrospectre

    ,
    Orghanon is a project founded by Sergio Calzoni, Italian producer and musician active since the nineties in various musical outfits (Alma Mater, Act Noir, Colloquio). Orghanon’s manifesto is to produce music with a strong cinematographic appeal, making use mainly of electronic equipment with sparse notes of acoustic instruments and electric guitars. Orghanon aims to blend melancholy with silence, depicting stark yet deeply emotional soundtracks for imaginary places. “Retrospectre”is a very personal exploration of childhood memories relived as ambient music soundscapes. Compared to the previous Orghanon’s work, making this album involved a more intimate and spontaneous approach during the writing process, with a more instrumental beat-less feel, and tracks enriched by the contributions of several guest musicians, performing parts of violin, viola, cello, harp and clarinet.

    K’an – Babel

    With track titles like “Once Was Spoken”, “Confusion Of Tongues”, and “Inversion Of Mouth I” this music perfectly reflects the album’s overall concept…one that reflects the abstractions and origins of language, and the dualities of Babel/babble. Like conversation itself the ultimate stream of “Babel” is a long and meandering blend of the calm and the languid, of urgency and restraint, and the unintelligible, concise, and interruptive. It is a paean to our inner discourse, our conversational selves, and the language of music itself. Most tracks start out softly and leisurely…then build slowly and lovingly into a sort of post industrial, percussive throb and hum…, the initial tinkling and strumming working itself into a dark dense drone of anticipation and ultimate extreme release. Processed guitars… electronic treatments… all conjoin to make this the most memorable of soundtracks to your own pleasurable or argumentative moments!

    Giulio Aldinucci – Spazio Sacro

    We are extremely pleased to be bringing you this beautiful new release from Italian soundscape artist, Giulio Aldinucci. Entitled “Spazio Sacro”, it is an absorbing blend of moody electronics and liturgical field recordings, or as the artist himself puts it…” “The seven tracks that compose Spazio Sacro (“sacred space” in English) are characterized by field recordings taken in places that are related to the idea of “sacred” in different ways. The starting point is a reflection on how human rites define new soundscapes (e.g. processions, architecture of churches and cathedrals or ruins of isolated mountain sanctuaries). The audio material has been manipulated and the music has been written in a constant dialogue with my personal memories, especially those from childhood, when in my area (a small village in Tuscany, Italy) religious rites still marked the pace of the community life throughout the year.”

    Francesco Giannico – Metrophony

    TRS047 is an atmospheric and underground metro centric release from Italian sound artist, Francesco Giannico, entitled “Metrophony”. On August 6, 2013, Giannico recorded the entire route of the “B” line of the subway in the city of Rome, that connects the “Rebibbia” station with the “Laurentina” station, and the “B1” line that connects the ‘Bologna’ station with the ‘Conca D ‘Oro’ station… Audio samples collected were manipulated and transformed electronically, and enriched with synth and/or musical instruments such as guitars, piano, violins. The result is “Metrophony” which is also an art installation.

    Francesco Giannico – Metrophony (Deluxe)

    ,
    For the deluxe limited version, in an edition of just 75 copies, we decided to change mediums and worked in the neighboring Berkeley silkscreening workshop called the Grease Diner. The set of hand silkscreened 6” square prints are renditions of the dark and moody photographs taken by Giannico himself in the subway. Each of these 12 unique prints is printed on a different sort of paper… ancient ledger papers, music sheets, rice papers, antique vellum, cardboard etc. They come in a vintage, hand stamped, 7” 45rpm sleeve from a 60 year old vinyl binder. Each outer envelope is then tied up with a string, from which hangs a used ticket from the Rome metro system. Also included within the set of prints is a scrap of paper detritus from the stations and trains, and a factory pressed CD in a hand stamped cotton sleeve.

    Mikael Lind – Unsettled Beings

    The title of Mikael Lind’s latest album, Unsettled Beings, is a reference to his restless self. Mikael is Swedish, but has lived and worked in Iceland since 2006. The interesting thing about his new release, is that all the people involved in realizing the music are also foreigners living in Iceland. Paul Evans from Greenhouse Studios played the violin and also mixed the album. Ryan Karazija, who is doing very well in Iceland with his band Low Roar, lent his vocals to four of the tracks. Alex Somers from Riceboy Sleeps, producer of several important new musical acts in Iceland, mastered the album. The basic idea of the album is a core of several different pianos accompanied by a lush pattern of violins. The pianos are of varying character, and their melodies often intertwine in a poly-rhythmic fashion, giving the listener the option of letting different melodies compete for attention. Ryan’s vocals add warmth to the songs, ornamented with Paul’s violins – sometimes in a call-response aesthetics.

    Plinth – Collected Machine Music

    ,
    Back in stock: Digipak run of 200 copies… This disc contains both remastered versions of the 8 songs that were on the ridiculously limited “Plays Victorian Machine Music” ep, that came out on the Rusted Rail label sometime back, and 7 new songs also created using old victorian music boxes, calliopes, and other wheezing mechanisms. The philosopher, social critic and journalist Walter Benjamin once suggested that the assorted detritus of the 19th Century bourgeoisie – the knick-knacks, toys, trinkets, mechanical amusements, photographs – could, when “blasted” out of their original historical context as kitsch distractions by means of critical analysis, reveal something significant about both their own age and also that of the present. This notion developed into The Arcades Project, an extensive, wide-ranging exploration of bourgeois social history centred around the Parisian arcades.
