RAFAEL ANTON IRISARRI
The follow-up to the much acclaimed “The North Bend,” « The Unintentional
Sea » continues Irisarri’s development of landscape inspired musical
renderings. Like the Salton Sea of today his latest edition is a gently
churning portrait of fluidity. It’s a record that sounds like staring at
a vast ocean in light breeze. Layer upon layer of currents swirl below
the surface, while gentle surges and waves coalesce creating fleeting
patterns and moments of intermeshed sonics. As these elements meet and
break away again, a sense of motion – both micro and macro – is created,
a rendering of the ocean calm before the inevitable storm. Coated in a
thick blanket of bass tonality, flickers of light catch on the crests of
these waves, uneasy jewels of sonic light that appear as quickly as they
disappear.

LAWRENCE ENGLISH
His new album « Wilderness of Mirrors » is English’s most tectonic
auditory offering to date, an unrelenting passage of colliding waves of
harmony and dynamic live instrumentation.
The phrase, wilderness of mirrors, draws its root from T.S Eliot’s
elegant poem Gerontion. During the cold war, the phrase became
associated with campaigns of miscommunication carried out by opposing
state intelligence agencies. Within the context of the record, the
phrase acted as a metaphor for a process of iteration that sat at the
compositional core of the LP. Buried in each final piece, like an
unheard whisper, is a singularity that was slowly reflected back upon
itself in a flood of compositional feedback. Erasure through auditory
burial.
« Wilderness Of Mirrors » also reflects English’s interests in extreme
dynamics and densities, something evidenced in his live performances of
the past half decade. The album’s overriding aesthetic of harmonic
distortion reveals his ongoing explorations into the potentials of dense
sonics.

JOHN CHANTLER
He has released his third solo LP for Lawrence English’s ROOM40 label in
2014. « Even Clean Hands Damage the Work », recorded for the most part at
the hallowed EMS studios in Stockholm follows « The Luminous Ground » –
released in 2011 and included in The WIRE magazine’s top releases of
that year. That was his first LP release focusing on the modular
synthesizer system he first explored as part of the trio LP with
Lawrence English and Tujiko Noriko – 2009′s « U ». Live, he patches a
versatile system capable of self-generated, shifting patterns of sliding
arpeggios and visceral noise, pointillist interjections and infinitely
variable texture.
Initiated in 2011 with a private edition LP, Chantler’s « Automatic
Music » series resumed in 2014 with a second volume on cassette via The
Tapeworm and volume three coming as a 40 minute digital download of
« Automatic Music for Henry Flynt ».

SLEEP BEGGAR
Sleep Beggar are the forerunners of experimental UK beats and noise.
Although in it’s infancy,
Sleep Beggar has made waves in the UK Underground movement with it’s
distinctive mix of
hardcore/eletronics and experimental hip-hop. Coming out of the empty,
desolate port town of
Holyhead in North Wales, Sleep Beggar is about to embark on their first
USA tour (April 2015)
with american rap artist JEdoubleF (American Scream Records). Their
latest releases ‘Fertile
Ground’ and ‘Paean/Monody’ have been well received by BBC Radio 1 Wales
and European
underground music press as being the forerunners of a new wave of UK
hardcore/electronics
crossover. Notable for their stripped down videos and stark visual
imagery and known for their
exciting performances, their latest release ‘Me Leaving Me’ has seen
Sleep Beggar solidify their
distinctive and exciting sound in experimental hip-hop hardcore music.
Sleep Beggar have recently
finished UK and European tour dates with acts as diverse as Death of
Youth (GER), Child Care
(UK) and Comadome (USA). They have captivated audiences through
appearances on the
ArcTanGent festival. With sights firmly set on a full length release, it
is worthwhile not to sleep on
this exciting new band.

BRUSSEL
Brussel experiments with dusk-like soundscapes, where the sounds of
guitars and amps breath across dissected organ and asthmatic trumpet. In
the arid wilderness of their dark-noise-blues, we may hear the ghostly
echoes of Trevor Henderson, Ennio Moriccone or Harry Crews. The modular
improvisational group formed by the duo Hugo Roussel and Bruno F
regularly performs as a trio in collaboration with artists such as
dancer Marie Cambois (Brumassel) or poet Steve Gander

Thank you for reading.

I hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

All the best.

Alain
