The electronic composer Philip Jeck returned with his first release in five years. His gothic and spacious Cardinal felt like a weighty career summation.

AF03: Amanda Feery & Michael Tanner - To Run The Easting Down

The Grand-Saint-Antoine, a month out from Beirut, comes in to Caligari freighted with the fruit of the Orient and the viceroy turns us off, already plagued in his sleep. We do not know the cargo we carry - not yet - not until our cracked lips blacken and the pestilence pushes out of us in lumps, first red, then dark, and by then it is too late for us, now that death is the captain of our ship.

Broken-backed and slack, lolling like stooks of corn under the wet lash of the storm, drawn toward annihilation, boiling with the fever, wailing like the bean sidhe warning of the doom that we are bringing.

Chihei HatakeyamaとFederico Durandの初のコラボレーションアルバムが遂に完成。 Federico Durandの演奏するカセゥトテープと、Chihei Hatakeyamaのエレクトリックギターのみで作曲された本作は彼ら自身が語るように、詩的で、情景的な音像を描く。 淡い水彩の単色画のような音色は儚さの中に強さを抱くような、まさに『秘すれば花』とで言えそうな哲学的な深さを感じさせる。 録音当日の朝、二人は畠山の家の近くの古いお寺を散歩していた、そこで出会った『幻覚童子』という仏像からインスピレーションを受けた本作はMagical Imaginary Childと名付けられ、これから生まれてくる子供達に捧げられた作品となった。 Profile.

Tempelhof. Touring is a strange experience.


There are disappointments and surprises. The audience you expected wasn't there, but those shows usually end up being the best. I didn't expect I'd see these cities. Frankfurt in the rain, or falling asleep in the back of a car in Basel, waiting for a show to start. Farmacia901. 邂逅 (Kaikō) is the first collaboration between Japanese sound designer Haruo Okada (岡田晴夫) and Italian sound artist Fabio Perletta.


During the magnificent backdrop of Japanese Hanami in spring 2015, when paper lanterns were hung for the purpose of Yozakura and Sakura flowers’ blooming reached their peak, they performed an improvised liveset at the warm and ancient-looking Kissa Sakaiki in Tokyo/Shinjuku on March 31, as part of Perletta’s Japan tour.

Si pour Brian Eno, qui la popularisa, la musique ambient « doit être capable d’accommoder tous les niveaux d’intérêt sans forcer l’auditeur à écouter », selon une note incluse dans son fameux Ambient 1: Music for Airports, ajoutant qu’elle « doit être discrète et intéressante », cette vision utilitariste est aujourd’hui à relativiser, voir à inverser. Trouvant ses intimes racines à la fois dans les travaux d’Erik Satie et de sa « musique d’ameublement » inspirée du dadaïsme et dans les œuvres monumentales de compositeurs Américains tels que John Cage, Steve Reich et Philip Glass, l’ambient, une fois dissipé le hululement d’une Kosmiche trippée teutonne avec Klaus Schulze en tête de pont, s’est retrouvée assimilée à une musique d’ascenseur pour intellectuels et techniciens de la matière sonore.
