In today’s cultural environment, the traditional music industry faces many problems and even developments like the current vinyl boom are not much more than a drop in the ocean that is the decline of physical media sales.
On the other hand modern communication tools, social media and the accessibility of high-quality digital music formats and relatively affordable recording equipment have made it easier than ever to produce, distribute and market your own music.   …more

Kollaboration der drei Weirdo-Noise-Synth-Tape-Kult-Musiker – Jan Anderzén (Fonal, Kemialliset Ystävät, Tomutonttu), Spencer Clark (The Skaters – mit James Ferraro, Pacific City Soundvisions, Monopoly Child Star Searchers) und Floris Vanhoof (Kraak) – die jeder für sich genommen ein eigenes Universum akustischer Absonderlichkeiten eröffnen. Hört man sie im Kollektiv klingt Tarzana das Ganze nach hyperdimensionaler Alien-Folklore. …mehr

Auch der dritte Release des vor kurzem gegründeten und in jeder Hinsicht vielversprechenden Labels Ventil lenkt den Fokus wieder auf Musik, die zwischen Club und Experiment vermitteln will. Flüchtige Abstraktion, immersive Ambientscapes, aus denen sich dunkel schimmernde Rhythmen herausätzen, sind der ästhetische Knotenpunkt der Soloprojekte Asfast/Kutin. Asfast aka Leon Leder strudelt düster-zerklüftete Klänge ineinander, aus denen er brachiale Beats herausschält, … mehr

Radikale Gitarrenexerzitien, reduziert auf das Nötigste, das aber mit einer Intensität, die schmerzt – Kultgitarrist Bill Orcutt macht nach Ewigkeiten wieder in Wien Station. Der Mitbegründer der in Musikerkreisen als legendär geltenden Post-Hardcore Band Harry Pussy dekliniert auch im Alleingang die musikalischen Vokabeln der Extreme durch. Irgendwo zwischen amerikanischem Roots, kargem Blues und Outsider Exzentrik …mehr

Einmal kräftig einatmen und los geht’s – C Spencer Yeh lässt seine Lippen wie ein Wahnsinniger flattern. Ganz in der Tradition eines Henri Chopin oder Jaap Blonk, treibt er seinem Stimm- und Artikulationsapparat ein unwahrscheinlich penetrantes Alphabet sonorer Abartigkeiten aus, speist diese durch minimale Effekte und hat am Ende ein intimes Stück Körperkammernmusik, das vibriert, quietscht, nervt und begeistert. …mehr

container-220616-616x44014.9. Ø  Container (us) + northcom + dj inou ki endo (si039 / rhiz)

Einer der zentralen Figuren der jungen US-Noise-Techno-SZENE kommt nach Wien. Ren Schofield aka Container fusioniert so ziemlich alles was breitspurig ranzt und pocht. Eine Mixtur aus Detroit Techno, Acid und Noise – wuchtig, rohe Beats, schrille Synth-Loops, analoge Maschinen mit Wurzeln im DIY. Ungnädig und ekstatisch.

orenlive.jpg10.5. unsafe+sounds festival warm-up – oren ambarchi (aus) + asfast + dj inou ki endo (si037 / rhiz)

Oren Ambarchi’s works are hesitant and tense extended songforms located in the cracks between several schools: modern electronics and processing; laminal improvisation and minimalism; hushed, pensive songwriting; the deceptive simplicity and temporal suspensions of composers such as Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier; and the physicality of rock music, slowed down and stripped back to its bare bones …more

PORTRAITLeRévélateur-2013SM.jpg4.5.  Ø  Le Révélateur (CDN) + no u.f.o.s (us) + black to comm (de) + dj inou ki endo (si036 / rhiz)

The name Roger Tellier-Craig isn’t to ring bells when you hear it, but Tellier-Craig’s contributions to modern avant-rock and composition is well known to those who have heard it. A member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor for five years, Tellier-Craig left the mythical outfit to work on other projects like Fly Pan Am, before embarking on his most ambitious turn yet: solo artist. Under the canopy of Le Révélateur, he elevates the synthesizer game. …more

id m theft able is the confounding nom de guerre of audio anarchist Skot Spear. Spear is a sound collage artist par excellence. His radio shows are bewildering, chaotic and, not infrequently, mind-blowing. He also performs live improvisations, most often at Strange Maine, the downtown Portland record shop where Spear may or may not still be employed (best to keep those details a mystery). In keeping with his bizarrely creative/subversive approach to music … more

MORAL DEFEAT started in August 2014 as an outlet for a new breed of industrial and noise artists from Scandinavia. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark the record label is working with a more blackened approach, MORAL DEFEATs releases conveys a range of negative feelings to a sonic experience, dealing with feelings of fear, insanity, isolation and pure rage. Moral Defeat is focused on new emerging artist, not confined by genres we are united under the same banner of blackness.
