Deterioration comes in a handmade sleeve and is limited to 100 copies…
An interrogation of the recording process in all its guises lies at the heart of David Newlyn’s new album Deterioration.
From micro cassettes, to phones, to cameras David, who is based in Durham, England, took to the outdoors while in Bruges, Belgium to capture the impact the environment and his choice of recording device would have on the sounds he produced.
The result is an extremely delicate and brooding album, full of texture and hiss as well as fleeting moments of melodic beauty.
Mastered by Wil Bolton the final mix is aptly a blend of tracks as captured on tape and digitally.
Newlyn will be a familiar name to many ambient music enthusiasts, with a host of releases to his name, having put material with Hibernate, Time Released Sound and Cotton Goods to name just a few.
Ekca Liena is an alias of Daniel W J Mackenzie which concentrates on the celestial, melancholic and sometimes blissful side of ambient music. Over the range of his enchanting, mainly long-form compostions there is a clear influence from ritual psychedelic, noise, doom, post-rock and at times modern classical arrangement. His discography has seen work on a variety of labels including Dead Pilot, Small Doses and Entropy and with an enormous amount of material currently in the works this list is hoped to expand.
Limited edition of 100 numbered / handmade sets (five 3″ CD’s) that include inserts with personal messages from the artists The Boats, Seth Chrisman, Savaran, All N4tural and Dan Whiting…
The second and final set of EPs in the Rivers Home series.
This series celebrates the wonder of rivers at a time when many of them are particularly vulnerable.
Many of us dream about rivers, ride along rivers, take ferries along rivers and sit on river banks. This series is a musical exploration of the ways we influence rivers and they influence us.
It is about the stories we tell about rivers, the experiences we have of them, and the memories they have left us with.
This the final set of Rivers Home sees The Boats, Seth Chrisman, Savaran, All N4tural and Dan Whiting each present an ode to a different piece of water on their own three inch CD.
Omniiq has been composing sounds for over three decades. From the more conventional classical training in the early years to the freedom of sonic experimentation now, the common thread is a passion for creating. Accidental composition. Chance ambiences. (Un)fortunate soundscapes. Ordinary sounds manipulated beyond recognition. Aural abuse. The journey is all important, the destination will look after itself.
These tracks are a travelogue mapping paths taken in Europe during the past year or so. Snapshots, based on improvisations drawing inspiration from the quieter moments of a nomadic life: a snowstorm in Helsinki, a hot September night in Berlin and a dusk in the Swiss countryside outside of Lucerne.
