Eight lo-fi sketches that lead to unchartered territories while we breath few words of Mallarmé.
BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambience. He prefers the use of acoustic material than synthetic and he always seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He runs Etched Traumas net label.
Nobodisoundz comes from France and first started this sound-making project by cobbling together music samples, sounds, field recordings and the results of his fiddling with audio software. These sounds completed his works and added an atmosphere within and around his paintings, subsequent installations and videos. He looks for dense, heavy, noisy, squeaky, tense and quiet atmospheres, which have to be both dark and bright at the same time.

Minimal beats made for slow dances, passionate voices and a stream of social consciousness.LAPKAT presents a monthly podcast, 'La Danza Poetica' which is broadcast on Radio Groovalizacion and Chimeres Greece. Featuring poetry, hip hop, folk traditions and global beats, LDP is a deep exploration into the many worlds, one world poetic groove.
I am proud to be participating in the great compilation titled VOX [Ref.025] CIRCE :The Black Cut: project. Listen to my track titled 'Heart Of Darkness' in 'The women of Great River' section. I used Linda's recording talking about her mother.
The album VOX [Voice; Sound; Call; Outcry] is part of the project « circe :the black cut: » and it is compiled by its founder and composer, Anna Stereopoulou. Being the second CIRCE Family Album (after the release of "Vuelo Libre" in December 2014), "VOX" consists of 28 tracks composed by the participants of CIRCE The Black Cut, as well as by the artists who responded to "The Women of the Great River" call-out /playlist of Claudia Wegener's RADIO Continental Drift; guest project of the CIRCE The Black Cut ~ 2nd Presentation (2015).
The 2nd phase of the project (2015), offers "Bees" to all participants, as the new Theme connecting all existing sources of inspiration. Through the present compilation we are invited to join the outward motion which is mostly achieved by the exploration, the acceptance and the unity of opposites. The theme of "Bees" suggests awareness about these essential to the ecosystem, flying insects, and the numerous threats they are exposed to (habitat loss, pesticides, etc.), as well as a paradigm to learn from their way of life, work and communication, in order to become more open and express our Voice, louder and wider, by exiting any kind of cell, which we are forced -by others or by our own selves- to live in. Thus, the transition from the compositions of the CIRCE The Black Cut participants, to the remixes of the artists responding to "The Women of the Great River" playlist, represents the voyage of an out-cry, wrestling to travel, beginning from our roots and our most inner places, through various bee voices helping us to kill our egos, by crossing the "river" or any kind of barrier and expose our feelings free to light. The album is available on Seven Moons as Digital Format and Free Downloading.

I am so glad to participate in this amazing compilation titled 'The Music of Ancient gReece: an appReciation' on Surrism-Phonoethics curated by Igor Jovanovic ( LEZET ). My track is titled 'Atermon' and is loosely based on the well known ancient Seikilos melody.
The music of ancient Greece was almost universally present in society, from marriages and funerals to religious ceremonies, theatre, folk music and the ballad-like reciting of epic poetry. It thus played an integral role in the lives of ancient Greeks. There are significant fragments of actual Greek musical notation as well as many literary references to ancient Greek music, such that some things can be known—or reasonably surmised—about what the music sounded like, the general role of music in society, the economics of music, the importance of a professional caste of musicians, etc" (Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_ancient_Greece).The tracks on this compilation are either covers of the remaining fragments of Ancient Greek music, or a reflection of the participating artists on the cultural legacy of Ancient Greece and an attempt to find the music of Ancient Greece in their own compositional approaches.

I am more than happy to participate in 'Ombre Et Lumière' compilation on dhatūrā records. My track is titled 'Als de dwaas zou volharden in zijn dwaasheid zou hij wijs worden' (In English: If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise) a William Blake line out of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
A short track based on mostly acoustic sounds and vocals aiming at innate weirdness, generative evolution and 'cyclical' melody. Enjoy. A free download.

Proud to be part of LEZET -2''- released with CLASSWAR KARAOKE(UK)! The album contains the EP of 2-second songs 10 remixes/reinterpretations of fellow artists.
Driven by the idea that came from a song I did a while back, I wanted to simply make an EP of 2-second tracks , but it became so much more than that. This idea turned into a collection of 2-second tracks that could be looped and hopefully perceived as genuine microsongs that have a clear melodic or rhythmic centre. It so happened that the stems I made and used on these were given a whole new life by my friends who also happen to be extraordinary music-makers. They provided an entire collection of songs that way surpassed the core EP and made me realise once again that collaboration and exchange are the only real path to music exploration and growth / Igor Jovanovic, March 2015released 27 March 2015
