This is the complete thisquietarmy live performance that took place at Centro Cultural Sao Paulo in Brazil on June 23rd, 2013. The concert marked the end of the TQA Brazilian tour where he performed 14 shows through May & June 2013 to promote the split LP with Sao Paulo-based band Labirinto released on Dissenso Recordings.
For this “homecoming” Brazilian gig, thisquietarmy performs a special encore with two members from Labirinto: Muriel Curi on drums/electronics & Ricardo Pereira on bass.
The DVD compiles and crossovers video footage by Claud Peer & Rodrigo Florentino with thisquietarmy’s live visuals and the live soundboard audio recording from CCSP. The whole thing was entirely edited & mastered by Eric Quach back at TQA.HQ in Montreal, Canada.
The DVD includes 4 live photographs of the performance by Daniel Moura, and the package was designed, printed, hand-cut and assembled by Eric Quach/TQA Records. The DVDs are silver/black DVD-Rs, burnt as NTSC and should work on all new DVD players and DVD-roms.
To chronicle part of his European tour, Drekka (Michael Anderson) releases Live in Europe 2010 exclusively on Chemical Tapes. Forty six minutes of intense arcane cinematic ambience that was recorded live in various Italian and Slovenian cities during November 2010.
A new collaborative project from Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and William Trevor Montgomery. Both musicians played together in Tarantel and Moholy-Nagy. Cantu-Ledesma also runs the superb Root Strata label, releasing solo material under his own name (including a recent LP on Type), and also plays in The Alps. Montgomery also releases music under Lazarus, The Drift and Believer.
This project was originally conceived and composed as a soundtrack to an unreleased western. The 14 tracks on this record are beautifully delicate, textured, sparse pieces ranging from slow acoustic reflective moments, to fully electric strumming, they capture the feel a western perfectly. It’s a shame the film never made it out, because judging by the music it would’ve been a beautiful spectacle.
The project was was recorded by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and William Trevor Montgomery and mixed at studio Lamantia, the record was mastered by Greg Davis. The image on the cover is a still from a Paul Clipson film, whose films have previously featured the music of Jefre, Barn Owl, Tarantel, Gregg Kowalsky and Metal Rouge. Sleeve layout by Jefre. Pressed on 140 gram black virgin vinyl. Limited to 500 copies
A year passes by and finally Talvihorros is back with his latest album Descent Into Delta to be released on both vinyl and CD. The man behind this one man guitar driven excursion is London based Ben Chatwin who in addition to hibernate has had material released through Benbecula, My Dance The Skull and our sister label Rural Colours. Despite only recently forming the Talvihorros project in 2008, Chatwin has been experimenting with sound ever since he first picked up a guitar as a teenager. His live performances have seen him share a stage with the likes of Tim Hecker, Stephan Mathieu and Ian Hawgood to name just a few. Chatwin has to this point juggled live performances and studio work as two separate entities with studio material being culled from sounds derived from as many different instruments as possible and live performances being restricted to just guitar and pedals.
Darren Ho’s latest trip down the rabbit hole is a baroque maze lit with neon lights. Machine music for The Blue Danube. Piano, harpsichord and synthesis all set adrift, levitating into minimal jewels of sound.
