Semiomime CD, Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker 12" (adn139 & adn142)

It's this time again: the first releases of 2011 are ready, and pre-orders are now taken for Semiomime's "From Memory" album (adn139) and the Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker "Fraktals" EP (adn142). Click on each release name for more information, audio excerpts and pre-ordering links.

Semiomime is the third project by Noel Wessels, already well known as DJ Hidden and one half of The Outside Agency. A project very long in the making, this début album by Semiomime is a splendid and very complex journey through this talented musician's most atmospheric and orchestral material. The soundtrack to an imaginary movie (which still had a few trailers to be seen here), this album is the crowning of a perfectionist, painstaking composition process, and something which will mark a new turn in DJ Hidden's carreer. Semiomime's "From Memory" will be released on 11-II-11 and can be pre-ordered (with a rebate) here on CD and there as mp3.

Coming a week later, "Fraktals" is the first output of the collaboration between Balkansky (Ivan Shopov, known in the drum'n'bass world as the driving force behind COOH) and Spain's young bass-wizard Loop Stepwalker. A loud, clear and hard-hitting four-track 12", this EP is something which will fit extremely well next to Broken Note, Niveau Zero or Matta in shelves and DJ playlists. Twisted, imaginative, enthusiastic dubstep at its best. "Fraktals" will be released on February 22nd, and can be pre-ordered on record here, as mp3 there.

As usual, pre-orders are getting a rebate, meaning that people who pay for their CD, record or digital release before their release dates will not only get their music earlier than anybody else, but also cheaper.

Semiomime - From Memory - adn139
Sunday, 16 January 2011 11:58

Semimomime - From MemoryDetailled, deep, pristine: the adjectives often used to describes Noel Wessels's output as DJ Hidden or The Outside Agency are even more accurate for the long-awaited first album by his new Semiomime project. A highly evocative and changing soundtrack to a yet-to-be-written movie, “From Memory” is a tour de force in emotional, multi-instrumental music writing and production. Close your eyes and let Semiomime guide you through his mysterious, intimidating but not unfriendly sonic journey. (get this on CD / as digital files)

Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker - Fraktals - adn142
Tuesday, 08 February 2011 17:51

Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker - FraktalsThe renowned detailled and personal production of Balkansky (a.k.a. COOH) meet the rage and insolence of the young Loop Stepwalker, resulting in a powerful record which puts rawness back into dubstep. "Fraktals", the first collaborative release between these two artists, is an energy-packed and original record which will fit perfectly alongside Broken Note or Niveau Zero both on the dancefloor and on turntables. Dirty but subtle, hard but balanced: the first step of an exciting path. (get this on 12" / as mp3)

Subheim in a film "apart"
Tuesday, 08 February 2011 00:56

subheim080211
After Cakebuilder writing a whole score for a short esoteric film, it's Subheim's turn to have material used in a rather experimental short movie. This time around, we're dealing with a fifteen minute short called "Asunder" (which apparently means "into different parts or pieces: into separate parts, pieces, or places"), directed by Seif Abdalla and available online there. You'll have to click on the link yourself, as there doesn't seem to be any way to embed this video.

"Asunder" is quite a weird trip, obviously a debut film, but let's focus on what interests us here. Subheim's track "Streets" (from the album "No Land Called Home") is featured shortly in this movie, around the 11th minute mark. So click ahead to see some Matrix-inspired fights between tie-wearing men running after an asian girl and a big red balloon. Or something.

 
Cakebuilder's soundtrack to the ritualistic movie "The Magus"
Wednesday, 26 January 2011 13:45


Another meeting of Ad Noiseam-related music and images: Jeremy Pillipow, known around here as Cakebuilder, has recently written the soundtrack to "The Magus", a film described by Jaimz Asmundson (its director) as "multi-format, process-based experimental film that explores the root of artistic creation.".

This short movie, which follows the ritualistic creative process of the Winnipeg-based painter C. Graham Asmundson, is now being screened at various festivals. Jeremy Pillipow / Cakebuilder's tribal sounding score is a perfect match for this films rapid fire editing and dark psychedelic topic (think of Kenneth Anger, for example).

The trailer for "The Magus" can be seen below, and you can read more information about it here. While it be put online one day, don't pass on a screening if this comes to be shown around you (you can check screening dates here).

Hecq & Matta: heavy beats for fast cars.
Friday, 21 January 2011 18:23


And another video using a track from Hecq and Matta. While the original version of "Sura" (from the record of the same name, adn128) already appears on two showreels (one, two) and Matta's "Suicide Stutter" in yet another one, it's this time the remix of Hecq's tune by Matta which got picked up to be featured in an advertisment for no less than Audi (yes, the fancy cars).

This trailer for Audi's E-tron is to be seen below. It was produced by Tisch13 (agency) for Living Room Pictures (production), and, again, is synced to Matta's remix of Hecq's "Sura", which appears on both Hecq's "Sura" 12" and Matta's "Prototype" CD.

Matta in another video showreel
Saturday, 15 January 2011 19:38

It seems like heavy bass, Ad Noiseam-style is becoming a favorite soundtrack to video artists preparing their showreels. A few days after Hecq's "Sura" was used for his video portfolo by Peiter Hergert, it's the turn of Matta's "Suicide Stutter" (taken from the "Lost" 12" and the "Prototype" CD) to be used by the Barcelona-based artist ID:Mora for an example of his VJ skills.
The video is after the break. Remember, it's not a work to be seen as it is, but a demonstration of what this guy can do in a live environment. And since we like ID:Mora a lot over here (after all, he's already provided videos to Bong-Ra's "Jo Bench", Chevron "Renegade Cherryade" and Matta's "Mass", all Ad Noiseam tracks), we strongly advise anybody in or around Barcelona to book him.

the return of the masked Igorrr fan
Saturday, 15 January 2011 16:12


Do you remember seeing a few months ago a video of a long haired, masked Igorrr fan raving alone on top of a hill? It seems that he is at it again, this time in the middle of a snowy forest.
We still have no idea who this person is, what the "school project" he is referencing is exactly, but we do know that the track he used is "Cruciform Dachshund", taken from Igorrr's latest album, "Nostril" (Ad Noiseam adn132), which you can get on CD here or as mp3 there.
Anyway, the video is to be seen after the break.
