Steve Reich :: piano phase (performed by Peter Aidu)

Between pretty boredom and floating time virtuosity, what about a quite innocent espieglery ? Let's just imagine the intervention of a John Cage at his best, practising a surprised intervention in order to “prepared” the pianos… interesting speculative fiction, but improbable meeting, a pity ?

Then, far from a formal prime impression, remains a pure mechanical emotion, an evidence.

ijo :: untitled ep

This short ::untitled ep of ijo will, for sure, be the happiness of all exclusive drill'n bass addicts.

Kindness

I admire the 'resilience' of humans beings (their drive to continue with life in spite of tragedy or loss).

A bitch with money

QB :: abstract works

useless to tergiversate… is it sincerely useful to try the explanation of a game (Manichean) confronting a reality concrete, but schematic, with an abstraction (certainly less… concrete) but sometimes more authentic ?

Following the excellent ep ::cycle of the nonless excellent moscovite musician, Qb, these ::abstract works reveal an interesting and pertinent hybridation from harsch noise and voices, to unidentified post-bleep rhythm without forgetting a true, but very underground harmonic temptation.

These are certainly abstract works, but they have also this intensified brightness of gems and abdicate cell netlabel seems to be the perfect jewel case.

Max Marlow :: half a year

4th release of the meticulous new label of the highly webactive galaxy :: kreislauf, those 6 months, are those of an artist without self-satisfaction. Max Marlow never gives alternative to the tracks, and once again, the general tone is on a very great rigour and high behaviour. Precise writing and an incredible sense of the negligible detail, are giving to this downbeat-ambient (as you want) release a "presence", a presence of those we usually meet in some mixed layers of time and reality.

PolarProject :: no name lp

Mobile soundscapes for neuronal dancefloor ? Faithful to his initial concept of representation and/or confrontation of mental images to (a modern) environment, :: no name marks an undoubted evolution in Juergen Rieger's work, as a complete hybridation on suggestion, concrete body talking (reflections - afternoon) as well as this very private investigation and sometimes curious dialogue between the semiconductors and brain cells (mad about) without forgetting the two splendid sinuous ways (it is - fearless). The release is closing on "jagged" … and that's precisely our state of mind after such a treatment.
PolarProject confirms, he is an incontestable non-motionless artist,
still certainly with "no name" but not for a long time.
