Ten And Tracer :: baker's blood

I am pleased to close this blog with a release, which combined so much shared values and thoughts about what can possibly be an open-minded work, so far from stale genres and dogmas, full of creative curiosity for sounds and things around. Without complex, but with the faculty to influence notably the course on, Jonathan Canupp cultivates all these talents and some, less obvious, to discover right now.

Metafame :: sooner ep

As a dissident of Anti Trance Corsortium 666, in 2002, and more recently (2004) author of a splendid track for a compilation of the netlabel plataforma-ltw, the very discreet Metafame makes us the honor and favours of a three tracks ep, a great piece of work. Opening on a so elegant and fine writing "confoundhalf-pint", the ep offers a vertiginous takeoff with "ec-nomy" which admittedly have, removed an "o", but certainly not sparing of sensations. Third and unfortunately last, "quaverrack" invits the listener to remain on a "parenthèse enchantée".
Yes, ::sooner is, and will remain a magic bracket.

Marcos Romero :: definition of micro tech house

The original title was trully splendid, "viaje por el deep tech micro house", this sort of combined expression between theory and passeport for an open space journey of sound investigation. Then, from now, you will probably think that the actual name will not produce the same good attention to this project, reassure yourself and let you go to enter in this particularly hypnotic experience. Practising an exceptional rhythmic intelligence, Marcos Romero is a wizard ; a wizard able to hold a fluid tonality in levitation for, example, and our greater satisfaction. Yes, enter in, this “definition” and you will leave there only while knowing that you had just made a “viaje” in a very exclusive ritual.

Max Marlow :: skyland

First is this good surprise and nice gift … when you will have click on the link under these words,
these are the steps of an urban nomad and night bird walk of a solitary berliner, king for a day and undoubtedly one of the important live theoretician workers of the becoming netscene.
we are not yet at the end of enchantments.
Once passed, some perfectible manipulations, stays the echoes of the broken mirror ( "…sometimes he saw his real face, and sometimes a stranger at his place…" said the robots in the past) - But, already these reflections give up the place, or rather deviate with prudence in front of the road roller and the unrestrained race of the hustler, reduced to a furtive shadow.
"the pirate rebellion of skyland" does not slacken the pressure, quite the contrary, poking and ceaselessly on the wire of a circular groove, rolled-iron by an inalterable bass line.
And finally, what about "walaskjalf" ?
Well, are you talking of this gigantic track, which will make us remember for a very long time this :: skyland ?
i suppose, yes …

Krishve :: cochlea

Krishve will not remain wedged in the inner ear for a long time...
"scala media", as a recording field temptation, shares a sound exploration all made of obvious pushed tubular electric density.
"scala tympani" could put at evil the membrane, but materialisation of the sparks is still quite remote - hardly if the very orchestral final one is distinguished.
"scala vestibuli" closes the ep in an entrance made of post-symphonic layers lost between two worlds. the accents are often dramatic, the tension is particularly perceptible - We will not wait for long before joining a distant sarabande, brass band in phase of total obliteration.
Krishve will not remain wedged in the inner ear for a long time...

09 are the identity guests of the master of ceremony, Alex Cortex.
08 is surely a "night-time epitome" but it also could be a time passes, media noche.
07 as a laconic echo number of a distant voice, Stefan Eichinger (lopazz) have a melancholic thought for that whom we suppose Elisabetha being, and always this laconic voice haunting dehumanized corridors, loneliness?
06 as an inverted circular water movement for Seis Tormentas.
05 or was it 2 bad cop mostly disorientated.
04 is a short intermede, where the satyre is charming an innocent victim … a story to follow.
03 as a decentralized nerve movement.
02 ? please more than 2, of these so flexible harmonic tunes.
Number one is surely another track, but i'm not a number, i am a freeeee man …

The Stringed Theory :: supersymmetry

Call it "super" if you mean that the importance of using "super"lative is a determinating element to appreciate the "tiny oscillating strings forming the basis of everything" around the corner of the ... universe. We will probably agree on, as The Stringed Theory is giving us the demonstration of a quiet interlacing of drones and layers, reducing outlook in a working drawing distance -

±•¬.¬ :: - - - - - / CYP3A4

Composed and recorded by ±•¬.¬ (electronic musician based in Nancy, France) during the last two years , :: -----/ CYP3A4 reports of the intense interest from the author for other "states of mind and unknown place in imagination, unknown colours" and the result is not far from a real new soundscapes exploration, revealing a deep sense of sound colorism (6ini05) and a real hability to materialize a half-hidden fog (brum).
±•¬.¬ is also the real expressionnist craftsman on restitution of an amazing "groundA" earth's crust - "noname", which closes this "cytochrome" (word for CYP3A4) release, already allows us to hope a coming new “psycho ethno archeo" activities report.

one in particular, all these at once ?
if we don't give a certain attention, we can easily pass through these two formidables eclipses of named well, MM Christian Quast and Markus Newton - Aquarell refuses to marked a feature, and practices the art of elegant luminous opacity - the matter is marvelously distant but clearly marked.

ID (irish+DUFF) :: IDEP

Emulsion vs. Hybridization ? as in a course of chemistry, let's observe the fundamentals (with a "s")
It should be admitted that, finally, the explosion of this fabulous hybridization of abstract hiphop did not have happened… a great disappointment for all those which could see in there a true opportunity for a growing old electronica. Then, depressed, heartbreaking Lex-NinjaTune-Anticon amateurs have gone away to other unknown pleasures. Anyway, here are coming good news for these, they can come back to enjoy this perfect "emulsion" between the japanese mechanical and ultra-lyrical flow of Duff and the sophisticated arrangments of its compatriot, Irie Yoshihisa (aka IRISH).
Opening on a half success track "black sun swing" (a bit too hiphop over-produced) the ep is coming on very sensitive bleep conjunction ("cell") and "desire” will certainly see breaking down any resistance. "ツツマレテク" (tsutsumareteku) confirms a kind of quintessence of the incur emulsion. Funny how "love me" is giving us the choice between pure and sentimental feelings and mmh … other love ways. The ::ID ep is closing on a "bonus beats" which have some great difficulties in hide the melodic digression of which we know, that Irish is so fond of delicacies.

Xedh :: Composition in red

- as a need to return to mental language
- d'abord il y a cette irrépressible envie de revenir au langage mental.
dédale de notes manuscrites diverses / pensées fugaces, vagues impressions initiales puis l'oubli instantané
- esta necesidad de volver de nuevo a mi lengua materna, a cada momento de confrontación a esta realización

the word is said - confrontation, or was it the other one, ambitious, from the (good) words of camomille presentation - ambitious … this terrible word, which sometimes exerts a repulsive fascination.
There is this amplitude, the density of a formal, un-narrative suggestion of reality filtered through the abstractive prism of Xedh composition, and these constant calls to break up, if you definitively refuse to look beyond.

Impassibility - la fuerza de la pasividad? as a "half" invitation to join in, Sara Paniagua introduces us, with an absolute skill, to 4 beautiful readings of the Miguel A. García vision. half invitation ? yes, as a refusal to any voyeurist intrusion, these videos seem to materialize a frontier between two concrete realities - one and main on the screen, as an initiatic advance, a reality highly transfigured through the combined presence of Anna Vila Serra costumes, reinforcing, at his best, this border (edge) between two worlds and another reality (duality) all populated by human ghost-tourists (whom strangely look like us) sauntering without apparent purpose.

::composition in red is undoubtedly a major work in the course of Xedh, as much as a premise mutation to new forms of exploration for a netculture and scene, removed from any format nostalgia.

* And finally, there is the glance of this woman who is posed intensely on you before she very slowly closes again the eyelids - ultimate introspective fold? Renouncement like an art...
* Et enfin, il y a le regard de cette femme qui se pose intensément sur vous avant qu'elle ne referme très lentement les paupières - ultime repli introspectif ? le renoncement comme un art …
* Y finalmente, hay la mirada de esta mujer que se plantea intensamente sobre ustedes antes de que vuelva a cerrar muy lentamente los párpados - último repliegue introspectivo? la renuncia como un arte …

Stephen Walter :: monocline

Far from ::das interspects or ::recapulatory (both for Retropublik), far also from last year's collaboration with David Velez (::data transfer of Lezrod for zym.) is coming this album of Stephen Walter, a release inaugurating a "conceptual mutation" for the label of Modena. Yes, it should be said , through the "poeticlinical" camera objectives of Mario Aldovini, we were used to move in some botanical mental walks, looking sometimes to rare growing plants under the beneficent protection of glasshouses in form of jewel cases … Then now are coming the minerality times for zymogen (with a nice contribution of Laurent Batailley), and Stephen Walter is the first craftsman invited to this new approach on things.
Abstraction and cold fusion (by opposite to the traditional scheme) seem to be the main abjectives and qualities which come first on mind through ::monocline, and "new heart" which opens the release is a slow imersion in apparent traditional ambient soundscapes. Like a second layer with the general matter, “red shift”, which follows, reinforces this feeling of descriptive slow dematerialization. No time to come back (where?) , impresses with solemnity, "tone" invits us to go deeper. Then from now, one thing is certain, nobody will remain insensitive with the mostly impressive and enigmatic density of “green shift” opening a second phase, and introducing two "section ", where we cross some reminiscences of reality posed on a particularly emotional harmonic texture, delicately interweaving. "before you eyes" still plays with some emotional figures, as an overflight with telescopic glance. Then "rising" which is ending the netaudio, is a kind of revelation, the result of an introspective "emulsion" of senses and, from now, so far from any archaeological or sedimentary layers.
