PASKINE | The Shapes of Collapses (VoxxoV Records)

PASKINE | The Shapes of Collapses (VoxxoV Records)

The Shapes of Collapses is Paskine’s sophomore album. His debut album Nimod was released in 2014 by VoxxoV Records. His new album is composed of ten tracks (and two bonus tracks) mirroring the different shapes of collapses and explosions.

“The Shapes of Collapses takes electronic textures and deconstructs them into a wild and jagged storm; the vague rhythms and melodies he tore into abstract shapes are meant to bring to mind imagery of environmental catastrophe and its aftermath. Mammoth slabs of grainy noisebursts and hiss toss and turn endlessly like the ragings of an alien sea. When Paskine was working on this album, during a research residency at the gmem Center of Musical Creation in Marseilles, his idea was to put together something with a constantly evolving organization. Occasionally, though, on tracks like the hypnotic “Be Llachoa”, he dials the choking noise back enough that you pick up on elements that you might call IDM…ish. The calm drone of “From Milgram Ich”, too, adds a bit of respite. But really, “T a t Stepfather Beautiful” is just awe-inspiring.” – Foreign Accents- Experimental Music and Sound Art –

La salle totalement redécorée pour faciliter l’écoute, un ciné-concert suivi d’un live et d’un dj set vous seront présentés.

Ciné-concert: Le Golem de Paul Wegener et Carl Boese
Film fantastique de 1920, L’histoire se déroule à Prague, au XVIe siècle. Un rabbin crée le Golem, une créature géante faite d’argile. Utilisant la sorcellerie pour lui donner vie, il espère pouvoir protéger les juifs d’une menace imminente. Ensemble sur scène, le réalisateur et le musicien réadaptent ce classique du cinéma expressionniste allemand. Ils proposent une création originale, entre remontage, colorisation des images et improvisation d’une bande sonore électronique/expérimentale.

PHARMAKUSTIK | Pulse Lavage (No.)

PHARMAKUSTIK | Pulse Lavage (No.)

Pharmakustik, who previously graced the No. catalog in collaboration with Chile’s Raw C, presents his debut full length album in the guise of ‘Pulsed Lavage’ which, according to the artist himself, is an audiosurgical album. In its original medical context, the term means ‘removal of necrotic tissues in wounds by pressurized hydrosolutions’.

As an album, Pulsed Lavage expertly manouvres the multilple stylistic themes within, from opiate induced narcotic bliss through to hammer & nails Tanzfloor techno. The album is as raw as it is beautiful, zig zagging between moods almost like the automated surgical tools of its namesake.

MULTICAST DYNAMICS | Continental Ruins (Denovali Records)

MULTICAST DYNAMICS | Continental Ruins (Denovali Records)

Following on from 2014-2016’s praised album quadrilogy, Multicast Dynamics releases his new Continental Ruins LP on Denovali Records. Inspired by decayed infrastructure, Samuel Van Dijk reveals his sound documentary about sunken cities and continents. A study on storytelling with sound, where electronic music acts as a verb, moved by images and narratives.

Continental Ruins LP is a journey through washed out, blurred particles, gliding across the ungraspable seafog of the atlantic, transforming the visible into sound. The murky and desolated atmosphere throughout the tracks reflects an forgotten utopia of places that were once populated. Unfolding fallen structures, immersing into the elusive, submerged land, searching for signs of life in the lost memories of faded civilizations, Multicast Dynamics explores ultrasonic underwater communication, decodes messages and browses through the archive of the past.
