It was on April 18t 2001 that the first ever release on Ad Noiseam (the "Krach Test" compilation) was released. Quite a lot has been done, released, played and written ever since. If Ad Noiseam was a human being, she or he would be hitting puberty, so watch out for some changes in the future.
The BhanaBlog has published a new and interesting interview with Gore Tech, in which this musician answers questions about his background, aims and music production. It's rather extensive (at least compared to other sources available at the moment), and the article describes well this producer's music.
Update April 21st: sorry, due to technical difficulties, this broadcast is audio only. On the other hand, it's live now and very intense.
Fausten's eponymous debut album is coming out next Monday on 12", CD and digital files (info here / pre-orders there). To celebrate, a two-hour audio podcast will be broadcasted live this Sunday (right before this album becomes available) straight from the Fausten HQ in London. Featuring tracks from the album, of course, as well as more material from Fausten and its two members (Monster X and Stormfield) and live VJ-ing, it should be the perfect occasion for everybody to get to know this act better.
The interview itself starts at the 2:18 mark (after an intro whose music has little to do with Niveau Zero). We learn there a bit about this musician's concerts in Germany, the "Jasmine" album (including the dreaded "why this title?" question) and his composition process.
Ontal is the collaborative project between the two Serbian musicians that are Boris Noiz and Dekode. Spotted first by Combat Recordings (the label run by Stormfield, one of the two members of Fausten), they are having an EP soon on Darkfloor Sound, which will eventually be available through the Ad Noiseam online store.
In an age of rapidfire release schedules and digital exclusives, audio mastering and vinyl cutting are often disregarded as costly and slow processes by labels and artists, much to the detriment of the final tracks and records. This is not something we agree on, as we constantly make effort to bring out the best sounding releases. This means working with experimented, talented mastering engineers (often distinct for each format) and vinyl cutters.
There're too many softwares, algorhythms and showcases aiming at perfecting how computer graphics can be synced (live or not) with music to list, but it's quite rare (actually, the first time if I am not mistaken) that somebody tries his hands or program to something as wildly unpredictable and varied as Igorrr's music. This is the challenge chosen by Chris Tripes for the following short video in which he syncs several visual settings to the music of Igorrr's "Toothpaste" (taken from the "Hallelujah" album, adn165). Enjoy.
The Ad Noiseam intergalatic corporate headquarter will be closed between March 28th and April 6th, as we all travel to a seminar about Force-supported music-releasing ("this is the music your are looking for"). In other words: we're taking some days off to recharge the batteries, and will not be able to do anything (or much) in the meantime.
All orders placed from the online store will be received, all items reserved, but shipping will resume on April 7th only. Digital downloads are of course not affected by this.
