We are proud to announce tonight the forthcoming release of a new album by Stavros Gasparatos. More than a sequel to "Seven" (adn170), this new "Expanded Piano" (adn186) is a very particular work. Recorded live at the very prestigious EMPAC hall in Troy, NY, it showcases a conceptual performance by Stavros Gasparatos in which 24 microphones were placed inside a piano and linked to 24 loudspeakers in the venue. Combining classical piano elements with very experimental use of this instrument, this album is an important one, which confirms Stavros Gasparatos and the recognition he has recently received.
Stavros Gasparatos's "Expanded Piano" is coming out on vinyl, CD and as digital download on August 17th, 2015. You can already pre-order your copy by clicking on your format of choice in the previous sentence. As usual, pre-orders get a rebate.
People reading Greek would be well advised to head on to the nice Noise Release and Tospirto websites and read extensive interviews with Stavros Gasparatos. Unlike most articles we come across these days, these take some time to go a bit beyond the surface and manage to get interesting answers.
It has been a very long time since we last posted music from Subheim, and while the sound you could hear in this blog post in 2013 was great, we were proven wrong when we wrote that a new album would come out in 2014. Plans have changed and time will tell when there will be a follow-up to "No Land Called Home" (adn133). Still, here is a new track from this musician, unexpectedly uploaded to Soundcloud yesterday.
Click here or below to listen to Subheim's new "Neon" track. It has a rainy atmosphere, a glitchy sound and a very emotional side. Who knows whether it might not be a foretaste of things to come, sooner or later.
A little bit of personal information in this introduction: today might by Mr Swarm Intelligence's birthday, but we are the one getting a present, as he presents us a new mix. Published by the Wounds of The Earth website, this Swam Intelligence set starts in a slow and seducive manner, then moves towards noisier territories to end with a rather angry climax.
You can listen to this "Wounds Of The Earth Mix 008" here or below. The tracklisting is after the fold. Birthday cakes can be sent this way.
Got a case of an angry Monday? The week is only a few hours and you already want to throw things around? Monolog is here to help with this excerpt from a live set he played in Berlin recently. Turn up the volume and click here or below to listen to 6 minutes of Mads Lindgren's noisy beats, heavy basses and broken rhythms. We are here to help.
Even though we are not totally familiar with the "Reasons To Be Creative" conference series, we thought it would be relevant and might be interesting for people in the UK to know that Ben Lukas Boysen / Hecq will be a speaker at a coming edition of this events, on September 8th in Brighton, alongside what seems to be a plethora of designers, photographers, musicians and other artistic heads.
We haven't talked enough about 2methyl recently. This artist, whose Ad Noiseam debut, the "Orb" EP (adn175), was released about a year ago on vinyl hasn't been lazy at all, even when he wasn't making the headlines. Therefore, thanks a lot to the good people of Nekrolog1k recordings to having invited him to participate to their new compilation, the "Altered Perception" EP.
Friday Freebie: Oyaarss might not be the most prolific artist on the Ad Noiseam roster, he still counts among the most regularely working and releasing artists on board. "Zemdega", his third album, is only about 6 months old, but he has already completed an album of sort with the band he created with the member of his live line-up (which you can listen to and purchase here), and here he comes with a new track.
"A sêpsis" was apparently recorded during a recent concert played in Riga alongside Ancient Methods, and is now available for us to listen to here and below. It definitely features some of the raw melodies of both "Smaida Greizi Nakamiba" and "Zemdega", the live drumming (or at least its feeling) of the latter, but also includes some new elements such as a distant vocoded voice. Whether this is a sign of things to come from Oyaarss remains to be seen (or heard). For the moment, though, enjoy this new Oyaarss track, "A sêpsis":
