Recto Oldies but NoisesVerso Oldies but Noises

"Album "Oldies but Noises" is returning to my musical roots. It is a tribute, but at the same time also a re-think about the messages that the oldies goldies can give us today. What they can tell us if we dust them and put them inperspective of noise music, which itself offers a challenge to our comfortable everyday routine western civilization life.

Selection of the songs.
I kept it clean with old fashioned manner songs made till the end of 60's. I've excluded all new (rock, alternative, garage, punk …) music from the late 60's which had also a big influence on me. The selected songs had to be music of my "early age sound memory", the music that I've heard my dad playing form the tapes in our car. So, to me oldies goldies are great music I listened in the same room with my father.

Why the need?
In this experiment I wanted to work with the material that I love since I remember and that has built my basic musical taste. During the process, new perspectives and messages from the songs have appeared. It was like talking to the elders, who are full of experience and can tell you so much about life in a simple and easy to understand way. Today we are often forgetting about the history and we think everything is new. We consider history to be obsolete and irrelevant. I think we need to understand it and show respect to it while developing further by making our own experiences. In the age where old is something bad, this by the way is a construct of consumerism, we need history to learn from to become more humans and less consumers. Else …

Songs.

· Blue moon.
Published : 1935. Composer : Richard Rodgers. Lyricist : Lorenz Hart.
It's the one and only king of r'n'r Elvis. I have always pictured a lonesome cowboy with a broken heart riding slowly in to the sunset singing this song. Yes, this is an ultimate song about loneliness and alienation that our civilization is facing more and more, even though we have more possibilities to connect than ever. I went into this song as it came to me. Soft and gently, lonesome talking to the blue moon, with a gentle touch of digital noise sounds in the back.

· I put a spell on you.
Released : November 1956. Songwriters : Jay Hawkins, Herb Slotkin.
Screaming Jay Hawkings represents to me freedom in voice. His "madness" expressed in voice is just something that I never stopped looking up to. It is a reminder how much freedom we can choose to have in our everyday life. The song came out to me in a new dimension with the use of more vocals, underlaying reverse lead vocal and all the noise. I understand it as a story about addiction and not so much as a love story.

· Sun ain't gonna shine.
Released : August 1965. Songwriters : Bob Crewe, Bob Gaudio.
Even before I knew who Scott Walker was, I was in love with this song as a very young boy. It sounds so majestic and positive, giving you the feeling that it is great to be alone and unhappy in love. I wanted to explore the dark side of the song with a piezzo microphone sound recording of the manipulating of a tin sheet.

· Money
.Released : August 1959. Songwriters : Janie Bradford, Berry Gordy
This is actually a song about capitalism's biggest value. Persuading money and profits is one of the biggest problems of human society leading to deadly environmental consequences. More than ever, we do not appreciate what has true value to our lives and this song is telling it straight. Catching the biggest profit will take as all down the drain. Maybe UBI could change our every day fight to pay our monthly bills and we could find more energy to do something what matters.

· Over the Rainbow.
Published : 1939. Composer : Harold Arlen. Lyricist : E.Y. Harburg.
I was so afraid of the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz, but the song Over the rainbow with all its innocence of dreams just bring warm and longing feelings out of me. Every time I hear this song, I start to hum it. While I was working on this song, I started to see the lyrics from the perspective of a refuge. So, I dedicate this interpretation to all refuges out there with a warm wish to find peace and their piece of a land over the rainbow. I believe in human right to live a decent and dignifying life for each of us, regardless of any reason you may find.

· Blue suede shoes.
Released : February 1956. Songwriter : Carl Perkins.
I used to wear suede shoes a lot and this was sort of an anthem to me. To me it represented freedom and openness with clear borders and it stayed that way after the adaptation of the song. With a bit more warning in the message as today men and women are getting more individualized and separated to each gender side than to live together in peace. We all would need more unconditional love to overcome our differences and allow each other even to step on blue suede shoes.


· What a Wonderful World
.Released : 1967. Songwriters : Bob Thiele (as George Douglas), George David Weiss.
Louis Armstrong was probably the first singer that opened fun world of vocals to me. I was not aware of that at that time, but I remember good feelings listening to his playful voice. So, this one is made only of pure voice without any additional machines. I wanted to create a world and the song spoke to me back with its ecological point. Do we still perceive the lyrics as we did in 1967? Can we still be just a passive observer?

· Summertime.
Released : 1935. Composer : George Gershwin. Lyricists : DuBose Heyward, Ira Gershwin.
Summertime follows more strongly me since middle school although father has played Ella and Louis version in the car. The version from Janis Joplin, who is one of my beloved musical voices has such a strong interpretation. I didn't know that this song was originally made for opera. The lyrics hold such a strong and sad story about the beginning of the life and human nativity of a woman who had a child with the rich man.

· Where did you sleep last night ?
Songwriters : Traditional
The movie about Leadbelly was one of the first movies about musicians I saw in my life. I watched it on television. I couldn't understand Leadbelly, but have enjoyed the music and the way he sang his way out of the prison. In the 90's Nirvana did a cover of this song and I still love it. Where did you sleep last night is (also known as In the pines) an American folk song and tells a terrifying story about racism. Sadly, we are living in times when racism is getting stronger again. We can not forget about human history, only this way we can become better and more human.

· My Way
.Released : 1969. Songwriters : Claude François and Jacques Revaux.
English lyrics : Paul Anka.
I Still remember excitement when I first heard the Sex pistols version of My way. It opened a vast musical landscape of possibilities to me. Everything can be done and it is possible to make old sound fresh. Well I also love Frank Sinatra and his velvet voice. Since we live in an era of individualization and ego, I made this version of My way with emphasis on I and MY words. We all want to do it my way, but this is exactly why and how we are destroying this world. A true peace and prosperity for each of us is far, far away and in my opinion hides in OUR WAY.


Noise Music.
To me noise music should involve a provocation and needs to push listener to rethink the world around. Noise music is the test of your tolerance.


Copyrights and permissions.
In the past I have tried to reach out to the authors or companies that manage the rights and I never got any feedback. So, I don't have them but this is anyway not meant to be a commercial project, and is considered fair use. If any of the authors feel offended or anyhow deprived, I will humbly remove the song from the album."

Musicians :
Aurore Dudevant : clarinet.
Philippe Zulaica : cello, electronics, piano, loops and samples.

About this album :
The album "Juste un fragment" is made of improvisations recorded in 2017 and 2018. They are then cut, stacked, sampled and re-orchestrated in a quick and intuitive process close to improvisation. As I usually do since 2001, many fragments of earlier recordings and albums are also reused, processed and handled in loops or textures. With this manufacturing method, the music is spontaneous, immediate, organic, but it is also the result of a slow evolution of a raw material constantly rediscovered.

A summit meeting between heavy electronica and Matter informalist duet Tuuli / Tulii (J.Gowthorpe and A.Degrenier) and joli-joli vocals spasms, closer to a Mark E. Smith in alcoholic coma as his usual testosteroned post-synthpop. These improvisations sessions dating from 2011-2012 were fortunately saved of waters (Nantaise ...) by our specialist of waterways joli-joli. And by the grace of his scissors, gives us to understand eight pieces really intense.
And measured for what would have given the project if it had been pursued.

The compositions were produced in a manner of inner space revelation or even a dialogue between inner and outer space. Due to volumetric range of tones every track hatches from it's own deep corner of an unknown universe...
Figuratively about the canvas: in sound space of this work textures are mostly synthesized in transparent vacuum with warm shades in a move towards eternal, flavored with sharp cold spray of logical structures.
Generally the author is an ordinary individual from Crimea, Konstantin Tolcheyev. He has been brought to condition of internal detonation and eventually that took a form of sound.

Finally, the complete retrospective of the Toulousian duo.
From 1995 to today, the solid friendship that binds led them to develop a project out of time, a kind of mutant pop, all in improvisation, a sweet madness sometimes rageful, purely analog.

This "Retrospektive 95-15" will include four volumes showing all their career and the completeness of their productions.

This first volume runs on the beginnings of the duo.
It contains the first three EP7 "," Blue "(1995), "Green" (1997), and "Red" (1999), the "Jaune Pile Session" (2002), two tracks from the compilation "Shiny People" (2005), and finally the "Live in Odessa" (2008). The original covers are included in the download file.

Recto Dépôt BNFVerso Dépôt BNF

Last month, the National Library of France (BNF, Paris) has invited us to make a deposit of phonographic works in his illustrious background. We received this invitation as a gift made in our humble label for its ten years of existence. Indeed, in 2005, we published the first Nowaki reccord, and up to 2008, we have released a dozen. We have filed the few references we had left in stock:

Won : "a forest" (nk-r01/nk004, cd, 2005)
Ultralibéral : "Ecotourisme" (nk-r06/nk014, dvd audio, 2006)
Traqueurs de Combes : "Attentifs ensemble" (nk-r07/nk016, cd, 2006)
Ultralibéral : "L'âge d'or, encore" (nk-r09/nk024, cd, 2007)
Ultralibéral : "Unshock the monkey-the Mons project" (nk-r11/nk029 et nk030, cd mp3, 2008)

This online is a small compilation of this five reccords, a way for us to mark the occasion. A small booster shot too, just to remember from which comes Nowaki, originally a small self-production label based in Toulouse (south-west of France), a friends story, that has since much evolved.
A way also to thank Mr Zanzotto of the BNF for the surprise and honor he brought us.

Recto Storm Among StarsVerso Storm Among Stars

Storm Among Stars.

01 - Journey :
It was a long way from home. A new home. A colony, far away from Orderaki overlords. Epsilon Eridani, the home of human kind. Their birthplace destroyed, they journeyed far and within time, they have entered the system. Two planets, quite cold, a debris disk of remnant planetesimals and two belts of asteroids. "A beautiful place...", said Jaroslava Zadiska, captain of the Darius, the sleeper ship.
Jaroslava was also a granddaughter of a famous but brutal space pirate, Drago, of the same surname. Most of the crew awakens as they arrive
above Epsilon Eridani b, and they begin to land. Creation of the first cities, farms and terraforming systems will take time.

02 - Colonization :
Many years pass and the Eridanians have suffered, but endured. Their populations have grown, their factories built ships and transports. Even machines for war. Science was flourishing.
Jaroslava slowly grew old as she led her people to a brighter future. How did she become a leader ? She was chosen - due to the fact that pirates of old gave birth to the rebellion against the Orderak empire. She knows her resolve must be strong. Rebuild, colonize, create a powerful Empire. Then fulfill your vengeance, even if you are old.

03 - Progress Driven By Vengeance :
And it was not just Jaroslava Zadiska, their leader. Eridanian humans all had a wish for vengeance. Their home was destroyed, their birthplace.
It was a great Empire that did it in the name of their own 'justice', but they slaughtered the families of Eridanians, their friends, their freedom, their independence. They work for survival... and vengeance. United in these two tasks, they grow fast and well.
The Republic of Eridania becomes one - a united but hidden power within the galaxy.

04 - Shadow Contacts :
When economy was fully utilized and the food supply was no longer in danger, the leadership of Eridania began to plan. The plan to strike back, to seek out vengeance and destroy the Orderak Empire once and for all. Archives told of an enemy of the Orderak. The Shadows, Shades. The one enemy Orderak were never able to defeat and they hated each other. A thought - perhaps they will assist.
Since defensive and powerful fleet was built, they have decided to try and send a message to the parts of the Milky Way where Shades lived.
It was not long before Shades appeared right above Epsilon Eridani. It was a tense moment. However, communication was established.

05 - Diplomatic Tendencies :
The ship of the so called Shades was large. Very large. Long approximately 4200 meters (while Eridanian ships were 1000 meters long). Fear was present in both. Who knows, this could all be Orderak trap. Tensions still existed, but eventually, the Shade diplomats agreed to land on the surface.

06 - Meeting Shade Face to Face
It was strange as the Shades seemed new and unusual to Eridanian humans. During the talks it was found out that they are not called Shades or shadows, but Karodians, but were named Shades due to their advanced cloaking technology. The Karodians had five legs, which they could also use arms and hands, each with four fingers. Their single eye black, and they always had to keep masks on their faces, due to their life being based on selenium. They wielded strange black colored rifles, which, according to Karodians, used a large and high powered beams of alpha particles against organic and other life forms. They used other types of weaponry too.

07 - Common Enemy :
The diplomatic talks began shortly after the cultural exchange. Once the language barrier was finally fully passed, they agreed - Orderak are a threat.
The Karodians were fighting them for the last six hundred years. Many died in defense of Karodia, but once cloaking devices were created, it became easy. Although the war became a stalemate, the Orderak enslaved and conquered other galactic races to plunder their resources.
Orderak were a powerful empire, which is filled with corruption, and "filth", as diplomat Xozoruk stated. They agreed, again, that with combined
military operation, they should be able to reach Orderak, the capital of the Orderak Empire, and defeat them once and for all.

08 - Hatred Stronger Than Stars :
Beautiful to see two kinds work together against a common foe, a foe that killed so many of them. Their thirst for vengeance has been great. War was their only option as they both thought diplomacy was certainly out of the question until the Orderak were brought to their knees. Death before surrender or defeat.

09 - Warlike Alliance Rises :
"Within two of your years...", diplomat Xozoruk demands, "... we will begin the offensive. We will send you coordinates to Orderak and other planets closer to you. Together we will attack them.". Jaroslava, as the elected leader of humans, agreed. A treaty was signed.

10 - Through Krasnikov Wormholes :
Eridanian human scientists worked for whole two years on new technologies that would allow them to attack the Orderak efficiently. They thought they would not succeed in time, but, basing his work off a scientist named Krasnikov, Jamal Darin, one of the brilliant Eridanian scientists, finished a faster than light drive that would deliver them to their destination very fast, even faster than Karodians. New ships, larger and better were built, now even up to 2200 meters long. It was a glorious two years for Eridanians.
And when the time was ripe, the offensive began. The offensive lasted for several months, and many had fallen, until they finally reached Orderak Prime, the capital planet of the Orderak...

11 - Battle for Orderak :
The old enemy of the Humans is here, in orbit of Orderak Prime, admiral Tonura, with a very large fleet of surviving Orderak spaceships. The combined two Eridanian and Karodian fleets were hardly a match for it. As soon as the two fleets came out of their respective faster-than-light drives, space mines activated and destroyed many ships. Admiral Tonura quickly ordered a counter attack and a vast battle began.
The Orderak also had new technology, admiral Tonura commanded his fleet from their new behemoth, battlecruiser Daxzri, the largest ship in the
known universe, approximately 14 kilometers long. However, both humans and Karodians had something up their sleeves.
Although an hour and a half late, Jaroslava and another human fleet came rushing into battle with 15 newly created ships, the newest of technology.
The battle itself seemed to be a draw, no one being able to take advantage.
The chaos of battle brought most of the ships some distance away from Orderak Prime and with main part of the battle now being fought near its moon, a new fleet came in. This one, however, was strange. It only had two small support ships and one larger battleship of Karodian design. It was different from other Karodian battleships. All three ships were headed straight for Orderak Prime, the two support ships defending the
battleship, shielding it from unwanted enemy fire. Once in position, it has fired many strange but slow moving missiles at the planet. Then, a large cannon, looking like one of their rifles, began to charge and fired at the planet.
Large nuclear explosions began to appear on the planet. The cannon's beam seemed to have heated up the atmosphere additionally, seemingly
making a global firestorm on Orderak Prime. "An eye for an eye".
The Orderak fleet was eventually defeated, with admiral Tonura and a few other ships retreating into unknown space.

12 - No more Orderak :
The planet of Orderak Prime was still there - but like Earth, no living being was left on it. "An eye for an eye.".
War has brought an end to an Empire. Only ashes remain of its home. Dark vengeance fulfilled, of both kinds. Jaroslava, however, received a message, from the diplomat of Karodian fleet. "Now, we are alone. Perhaps you shall be next. Our alliance is over, and our unending war finally finished."
"We will retake the territories of our once mighty Empire, and you...", diplomat Xozoruk notified Jaroslava, "... and your little planet are in the way."
The Karodian fleet turns against the Eridanian fleet now, and begins to attack. Eridanian fleet falls back to Epsilon Eridani, and begins
preparing for a mighty invasion...

13 - Ashes of an Empire :
A fallen Empire that fought for its power and an existing Empire that has fallen. Chaos ensues the galaxy, as now free planets become independent. New opportunities are now here, for new alliances...
Many are conquered by Karodians, some ally with admiral Tonura, some with Humans...
But will there be the end to this war?
Perhaps in the next chapter.

Recto 2ndVerso 2nd

"2nd" is the second album by Roberto Massoni, alias Ovio. All tracks were created based on improvisation using the free tools package called "process".
Gentle rhythms, chords pulsed, subtle layers of noise, incomplete melodies, audio bugs, polyrhythm, stillness, darkness, water of a pool moving slowly, the constant sound of a road in the distance, waiting time, fm radio passing the hit, nails freshly painted, the last days of summer.
Music that embraces the wait, sounds that decorate the room, not wanting endure sounds, sounds that do not mean anything, sounds not want to be remembered.

"Wandering The Way"

Solo Tenor Banjo Improvisations 2010-2012

Beyond the baggage of its history generally, i.e. Appalachian folk tunes, hillbillies etc, there's not much I actually know about the banjo as an instrument. The tenor banjo in particular (on which these back-porch and late-night-solace improvisations were recorded) I happen to know even less, except maybe that it was this four-string variant (as opposed to the more common five-string banjo with the extra tuning-key halfway up the neck) that was used backing pop/swing orchestras in the early to mid 20th century.

Anyways, my approach to the t.b. is more informed by the blues of Mississippi Fred McDowell or the harpsichord music of J.S. Bach (and of course our man Eugene Chadbourne has explored that territory; that is: banjo and Bach, thoroughly and peerlessly)… but even more so in the case of this assembly of captured mumblings, music of the Tao as played by Chinese Masters of the Giqin - another instrument I know little-to-nothing of, historically or culturally; but that it has a similar tone and timbre as my beloved banjo.

I hope then that listeners of these pieces can hear them as I did, as coming forth out of the sonorities of the instrument itself without any more intent than hearing its voice and resonances in fleeting moments - undoubtedly naive, indeed; but fragile and honest also… and informed by a deep love for the Way and the efficacy of uselessness.

"Our world is just information coded with an infinite number of numbers between 0 and 1, and controlled by the Great Organizer Dimensional with his huge capacity, G.O.D.
Bugs exist, impossible events happen sometimes, incompatible states coexist as proofs.
On this day of december 2012, three musicians leave Albuquerque at 3:13 pm to
L.A. in a blue minibus decorated with mauve flowers. At 5:17pm, a meteorit crashes
on the minibus. At he same time, G.O.D misfunctions.
As Schrödinger's cat before opening the box, passengers of the minibus are both dead and alive.Except that, in this case, the box was opened.
The remains found between crushed iron sheets were buried,but even so the JCA trio journeyed on to LA in the same minibus perfectly blue with mauve flowers.
Before G.O.D rectifies this bug, they came in a studio and recorded a proof, this album, two days after their death."

"Second album of The Owlest from Terebovlya, Ukraine, has more modern classical sounding than previous, but there are still notes of easy listening and fairy-tales. Imaginary Pianist Of Imaginary Orchestra is about imagination. It is about weird people, those like to imagine everything. Their fantasy is so powerful, that they can imagine little orchestra with piano and talented pianist. They could walk and hear music of their imaginary orchestra in their heads. Beautiful music with piano, because pianist playing louder, than other musicians and more wonderfully."

Recto Free FruitsVerso Free Fruits

"This album collects some of the fallen fruit synth box the computer's microphone piano.
These are fruits harvested between late 2011 and April 2012. Found randomly picked, tasted, sorted, put aside a little cleaning. Here they are.
Enjoy the game, the replay, I'll say it again, re-link the electronic computer, the reinvite instrumental afford pulse again, and even a few voices.
Finally for me this is the real return to the music itself after meter devoted to electroacoustic and multimedia only for 15 years.
Hard-played sometimes, therefore, assumed, finally, human gesture, and the virtuosity of M.Ordinateur, beautiful metronomes. Claps a bit in places, hums, murmurs, it pulsates, it wanders it.
Some fruits are ripe, others a little green, acids, sweets, weirds i hope.
Pleasure to be published on the net-label, without a contract, without condition, without difficulty, without no.
Best listening. "A.R.

Recto Reels of an infinite dreamVerso Reels of an infinite dream

"After finishing 'Leaving in waves' last year, I had no idea what I wanted to do next. I only knew that I didn't want to create something similar with my previous work. So I started experimenting with new sounds, trying to keep things simple. I deliberately kept the orchestrations as minimalistic as possible and made them relatively short, like a glimpse to what could someday become a real track. After working like this for about 5 months I realised I had come up with about 30 ideas, many of which were really bad, of course. So, I chose only 9 of them - the ones that still had a meaning to me - and edited them to this album. However, I wasn't sure that I liked the result production-wise, so I decided not to ever release it. It was only a month ago that I listened to the whole work again, made a few changes in the sound and found it a good idea to share it with you and anybody else that could be interested." C.A.

Disquiet Junto Project 0039: Netlabel Derivations.

"Each Thursday evening at the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com a new compositional challenge is set before the group's members, who then have just over four days to upload a track in response to the assignment...

...The assignment was made early in the afternoon, California time, on Thursday, September 27, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, October 1, as the deadline...

...The netlabel phenomenon is a tremendous force in contemporary music, with hundreds of these small organizations around the world actively distributing for free the music of willing musicians. In many ways, the concept of the netlabel is at the forefront of the Creative Commons except for one lingering issue: Many netlabels set their tracks to a license that doesn't allow for derivative works. On a label-by-label basis, that's likely an informed decision. But from a broader perspective, it arguably stunts the promotion of shared culture.

In order to encourage the employment of licenses that allow for derivative works, such as remixes, the Disquiet Junto will focus its collective attention this week to a netlabel that allows for derivative works. We'll take three tracks from three different releases from the Nowaki label, based in Toulouse, France, and combine them into remixed celebrations of the label's vibrancy.

So, the assignment this week is simple. Please download the following three tracks from the netlabel Nowaki and combine them into a new track. You can process the sourced audio in any way you choose, but you can't add anything to it...

...This Disquiet Junto project was done as a celebration of the efforts of the Nowaki netlabel, and to support its employment of licenses that allow for derivative works. This track is comprised of three pieces of music: Irise by Barascud (nk104), Sumatra by André D / Christophe Meulien (nk106), and She Likes to Look at the Sky by Kluge (nk089). More on the Nowaki label, and the original versions of these tracks."

"...The Nowaki netlabel was selected for the Juno project for a simple reason: while there are many netlabels (some 500 or so active ones at this stage, releasing music intentionally for free download), and while their practice embraces the Creative Commons, very few go the next step and make their music available for the production of derivative works. Nowaki is the sadly rare exception. So it was that, in the end, 19 Disquiet Junto members went to work on a handful of Nowaki tracks..."

Recto Talk To Night TreesVerso Talk To Night Trees

" Talk To Night Trees is an album of easy listening music, that takes your hand and bring you to a fairy world. This music is whole of different feelings, emotions and weirdness. If you close your eyes, you'll find yourself in night forest. There is very dark and pleasantly. You feel any fear. You hear some noise in the grass. This is little hedgehog, you pet his back and go on.

You see big yellow moon, which look like a golden coin, through the branches. It lights on pine with a couple of owls in branches. They read letter aloud, because it is also intended for trees too. You shut eyes and feels smell not only of pines, but also of nettles and cinnamon. That aroma dopes your head. You open eyes and think that stars on a sky are like freckles on a face.

You hear noise of the wind and it breaks your thoughts in the middle. You go in deeper forest blindly, believing in your feelings and inside compass. You hear rustling of the lake bulrush, but there are no bulrush and no lake. There are your insomnia and entropy, which bites in head like an alcohol. You feel some touch to shoulder. That's violet bird, which fly away in that moment, when you open your eyes.

You come close to big tree, hug it and begin to talk with it. You talk about everything in the world. You talk about hedgehogs and forests, about nocturnes and post marks, about more, than 9 centuries of Terebovlya and owls, which lives in that town, about ruins of the old fortress and town hall, about church bells and roadway, about birds, which have violet color and nettles among cinnamon.

You fall silent suddenly, cause understanding, that you living in real fairy. You and the tree. " Nazariy Zanoz.

Recto No-mix (a collection of Nowaki remixes)Verso No-mix (a collection of Nowaki remixes)

Nowaki second album for the prolific Philippe Lamy. Earlier this year, I told Philippe about the possibility of a concert this year (see live nk091). Never happened in public, the man is driven to work "live", using different pieces gleaned from our extensive catalog. A strength test, mixtures, it eventually led, by chance, a set of tracks, ultimately very 'Lamien". Kind of anti-remixes, evoking more the impression, the sketch, a any reconstruction. Tribute album to the label's artists, this Nowaki mix (no-mix) reminds me of a project ten years ago, led by the famous Stephan Mathieu as Full Swing, which proposed, in terms of remixes , pieces of which nothing remained of the original frame a trace faded. Watercolours sound, much like here. Philippe is primarily a painter, and it shows.

Recto L'éthique des animaux sentinellesVerso L'éthique des animaux sentinelles

"These two pieces marked my debut : "Nuage secret ", with the MAO, which I did not feel very comfortable, and " T13 ", with Larsophone (sound sculpture acting on the feedback in the spread of galvanized steel) in which my spontaneity and freedom were at my appointment, my past where instruments, with the feelings arising, allowed me to be on a staging where the play was nice.
"Nuage secret" is a piece made from sounds taken from so-called traditional instruments(tubular bell, prepared piano). For the record, I do not yet know Morton Feldman when I have performed this piece. The sound and all the MAO were carried out by myself.
"T13", a piece made with the Larsophone, an MPC spitting sounds MS10 and full of pedals, was recorded by Thierry Dilger with Shoeps microphones. We hear occasional pedal clicks that I fully assume.
I like the sensation of drawing music and, at times, of writing department. That's why I approached the analog and the sound pure, preparing speakers, paying attention to materials and the places where I play.
The human species has evolved technologically very quickly. As an artist, I think there is still much to discover with a soldering iron and acoustics, because they are living materials. "

Recto Another experiences with headphones, live @ Grain d'aile 2011-06-21Verso Another experiences with headphones, live @ Grain d'aile 2011-06-21

For the 2011 edition of the festival of music, the Grain d'Aile library of Carcassonne had the good sense to provide to our friend Jonathan Gowthorpe (aka Vompleud) to organize a series of concerts under helmets, a little at a how our colleagues of leplacard.org (the placard headphone festival), streaming and less.

Nine artists from Toulouse, Nantes, Marseille, Avignon and Carcassonne region have succeeded in this day of June 21 in the heart of this beautiful hall restored.

We have chosen to upload six of the nine "lives" on offer:
three artists from the label (Golem mécanique, Traqueurs de combes, Tuuli / Tulii), and three artists whose sets were particularly impressed (Triton, Iris Lancery, Poborsk), and we hope future collaborations with them.

We would, by this uploads, keep track of this very pleasant day, and thank all the participants of this event intimate (even those that we have not chosen, another time perhaps), in particular Jonathan and David Ona for the excellent conduct of these concerts, and Emmanuel Pidoux, founder and head of Grain d'Aile for its initiative and its reception.

Recto Love Song Before SleepVerso Love Song Before Sleep

Parametic Delay is a duo from Malang, Java (Indonesia) formed in 2007 by Benk Robo and Ditta. The use of toy instruments characterized their electronic pop productions.
Also being made members of the music in your room (chamber music), they created their own process of recording and mixing, using a simple software and hardware, while still demanding about the quality of production.
The duo released its first mini-album SELF TITLE in 2009 and returned in 2010 with the well-received SUNDAY MORNING EXERCISE. We are very pleased to welcome on Nowaki their third EP, released simultaneously this month on NOSOURCE, an American net label from Boston. A true international co-production for an intimate and energetic, nostalgic and
colored work. Tenderness of the Tropics. Sharp waves.

Artwork : Benk Robo ; design : M.J.

"On this third mini-album we want to tell everybody that we as humans surely have a cycle of life that must had been around by every human, that is maturity. At our age that has passed through 20s we often imagine how our childhood was, wishing what if we shrink and back into a kindergarten who ran endlessly, tirelessly playing and filled with a joyous smile. The first song in our modest work is entitled "Childhood Reheated" that contains all of our imagines.
We always fulfilled with many kind of dreams, filled with tales which told by our parents, start with the house made of cake and chocolate, playing football in the clouds, being a dwarf, being a superhero, up to dreaming about a small spots of ice cream rain although in our country was not snowing. These memories are presented in the next song, "Drizzle ice".
When we are growing up we might be a bit forgotten with so many dreams in the past when we were as a kid, either because the dynamic of social life or other things that make us oblivious. We simply want to reachieve those childhood dreams, while it is difficult or maybe impossible to reach. This obsession is contained in a song "Depict the dream".
When we were teenagers, as well as others we also falling love, but this love is universal, it could be affection, peacefulness, mutual understanding, also shared some happiness. Now love itself is too hard to get in this life, which nowadays full of war and chaos. Through the song entitled "Love song before sleep" we always not giving up to hope that love will always be around us, when we fall asleep and stay there when we open our eyes.
We always want to share all the memories and hopes of this dream, not for everyone but for the hearts of all people. This is the emotion that we get when we were working on our last song "To your Heart". We hope, all of us which undergo a cycle of life, grow up and grow older stay awake in the memories, hopes, dreams and love that will always make the world warm." P.D.

This polyptych, consisting of 4 moments of listening, traces an emotional and intellectual development. This is a double between research and auditory senses algorithmic analysis of music that is coming this work.

Designed initially for a multichannel distribution (spatialization of 5 speakers), Aléatoires (Random) is also expressive in all its richness stereo.

Aléatoires is the culmination of a long maturation of sound that now characterizes a bit more work.

The second time was used for the illustration of a performance by the Pièces et Mains d'Œuvre company in 2008."

1 - The Man in the High Castle - 13:52

The United States has lost World War II and is occupied by foreign powers.
The eastern seaboard has fallen under German control, while the West Coast is under the sway of Japan.
The South is a Vichy-type regime with the strings pulled by Nazi collaborators, while the Midwest
and Rocky Mountain regions are quasi-independent, buffer zones separating the two occupying powers.
Tensions between Germany and Japan simmer beneath the surface, and the threat of a nuclear conflict
between them is ever present.

2 - The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner - 7:46

As the foot strikes the ground there is also some flexion in the knee.
This should not be too excessive so leg strength must be developed to ensure stability in and around the knee.
There is also some movement around the hip girdle.
This can be excessive, so strength exercises for the whole region, especially abdominal and lower back are required.
It is very important that this region is kept stable thus giving a strong platform from which to drive.

3 - Sharky's Machine - 10:16

Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday nights feature karaoke, $2.50 domestic beers
and wells plus various shot specials throughout the night.

4 - Il mio nome è Nessuno - 7:14

Jack Beauregard, once the greatest gunslinger of the Old West, only wants to move to Europe and retire in peace.
But a young gunfighter, known only as "Nobody", idolizes him and wants to see him go out in a blaze of glory.
He arranges for Jack to face the 150-man gang known as The Wild Bunch and earn his place in history.

5 - Happiness - 7:11

Francois is a young carpenter married with Therese. They have two little children.
All goes well, life is beautiful, the sun shines and the birds sing.
One day, Francois meets Emilie, they fall in love and become lovers.
He still loves his wife and wants to share his new greater happiness with her

6 - The Paper Chase - 7:07

Professor Kingsfield : "You teach yourselves the law, but I train your minds. You come in here with a skull full of mush,
you leave thinking like a lawyer. Here is a dime. Take it, call your mother, and tell her there is serious doubt about you."
Susan Fields : "I know there's a lot of things to say, but it really isn't worth saying them, so please just get out.
They finally got you, Hart, they sucked all that Midwestern charm right out of you. Look, he's got you scared to death.
You're going to pass, because you're the kind the law school wants."

7 - L'Hôtel de la plage - 6:54

Août en Bretagne, nouveaux clients et habitués. Les hommes planifient les infidélités, leurs épouses aussi.
Amours adolescentes et jeux d'enfants. Lucien drague Aline et Euloge la serveuse, Yveline. Maris, femmes et enfants s'éclatent.
La patronne a un soupirant inattendu...

8 - Vegas in Space - 6:19

Captain Dan Tracey and his two lieutenants are ordered to investigate trouble on the resort planet Clitoris,
a pleasure world filled with shopping and gambling where, according to the "Articles of the Venus Convention",
only women are allowed. A variety of problems are occurring on the planet; most notably, several important pieces of "Girlinium"
have been stolen from the Empress Nueva Gabor. "Girlinium", as explained by the Empress, is a very rare gem found only in the caverns
of the fourth moon of Girlina, a distant planet. It is used by the Empress to help the planet maintain its delicate orbit surrounding its sun.
The stolen pieces must be found or the planet will fall into ruin as evidenced by increasingly violent earthquakes. The captain and his men,
in order to remain undercover, become women via sex reversal pills and pose as showgirls from Earth performing
a mid-twentieth century lounge act for the Empress' annual off-world slumber party while investigating the crime.

experiment, and appreciates the netlabels defending the so-called experimental music, even extreme. It makes noise (beautiful), miniatures, a kind of sound "design" quite adventurous, not afraid of extremes (calm, violence, noise, melody ...), also a nice technical quality and a mature aesthetic view of his young age. Brilliant, smart, instinctive : intelligence in the service of electricity.

"Piccoli pezzi per domani" is a particular musical project,
the soundtrack of a road-movie which takes place from Berlin to Lisbon.
Aboard Fiat 500 red, the protagonist leaves Berlin, loaded with sausages
that he has to distribute throughout his route.
His trip will leave Berlin, will cross by Prague, Frankfurt, Strasbourg, Zurich, Milan, Florence, Monaco, Marseille, Toulouse, Barcelona, Madrid, Salamanca, Porto to end in Lisbon.
On his road he will cross a Syrian lost in Switzerland, a Czech transexuel without money, a couple of Red Setter, an alcoholic nun, a Satanist in mourning, a nerd syphilitic, a dead undertaker, a Roma Prime Minister, Swedish one blind, a band of old vegetarian punks, a Thai extremist and many other intriguing characters but always with a ruddy complexion.
This journey will be for him a discovery as well as an introspection when in the question:
Are we made more friends if we have sausages or is the life is only a delicatessen?

Recto G.o.D.Verso G.o.D.

Traqueurs de Combes' thirteenth project. According to his words, the most accomplished in it days. Always in journey in the electricity, live totally, by means of a guitar, of a bass, of an old Korg Sygma, of varied microphones and of diverse objects, of a computer, he shapes a world which navigates between harmony and violence, beauty and noise. The sound documents speak about polutions, about poison, about news items, about close incidents, or about collective events.
All evoke the fragility of our world, the difficulty living there, making empty our attempts of hope, our refuges in the religion. God becomes the engine of our loss, the person in charge of our misfortunes, freeing finally the man of his own responsibility in front of cataclysms whom he even created him. With strength of larsen, of carillons, pipes and toy, melodies and rhythms, testimonies and songs, Traqueurs de Combes embarks us on a vast sound fresco which oscillates between anger and sadness, Irony and moments of grace. And an enormous tenderness which returns this less abrupt, warmer music in spite of its dark comment. A length travels in a horrified bliss, a kind of abstract "pop" desperately optimistic.

Gino Niemiz is the new recruit of the label, and not the slightest. For those who followed the adventure since its Génèse, Bruno was already there. The first Ultraliberal " Chez Bruno " ( nk009 ) was a live one made at his home, and for whom he realized a movie which we presented you in December (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xbicf9_ultraliberal-chez-bruno_creation). He also realized two videos for Traqueurs de Combes (http://niemiz.free.fr/Beetween.html and http://niemiz.free.fr/Darius.html). In fact, Bruno is a very old friend, who from Toulouse to Berlin, by way of Paris, always worked at extreme musics, of the most smiling to the nastiest. The work presented here reflects the experimental tendency of the chap, the dark or violent, abstract or funny, virulent pieces or planants, but always ordered with virtuosity, sense of the detail and " good taste ". Those who know his more dance productions
or his performances in public (live, DJ and VJ) are going to be surprised. This music is rough, sometimes, but always, the human being clocks behind, ready to make machines forget. And even if at the certain moments the atmosphere darkens, there are always moments when shines a light which is there to warm our feelings, to give a little of hope. Grave, deep, but with a smile in corner.

Not long ago, we receive a record sent since London by a young Japanese. We listen to. We melt. We contact. And Here we are, it is there. Finally a real artist Japanese on Nowaki.
It is brief, a quarter of an hour in five pieces, very touching. Something of obviously childish, made, tinkered in an instant, very close to the alive. And then there is a music, and a song, very dreamlike by moment. The last title evokes me a piece of Able. The same painful tenderness. Bizarrely, that makes the good.

In his music, diverse events (sound captures, worked again and transformed sounds, Chopped dialogues, voices, breaths, textures of varied origins), are diverted, confronted and assembled to produce sequences, durations or "narratives", in the particular tints. The asserted intention is to get the listening for instaler an at once dense, fluid and stretched sound space.

Second album of Benoît Balfet for Nowaki, who confirms all the good of which we think of its work. With, in this new opus, a more climatic dimension, a work of the sound in the depth, with always this rhythmic epileptic and this certain sense for the transparent melodies, this " Polar Beep " freezes us as much as it makes us melt. Finally hypnotic. Attention on trees!

Recto Last war against NatureVerso Last war against Nature

Prolific duet Pimp, always in pursuit of an ideal sound world: a kind of aesthetic demand of the freedom to play. Improvisations becoming compositions, a set-up in perpetual motion, and always this ironic and humanist glance on our world, here in the form of reaction in front and after Summit of Copenhagen.

Recto We did not come to fear the futureVerso We did not come to fear the future

These new pieces run along 2009, busy year, between the evolution of Nowaki and mounted power project Pimp. Charged and tense then, like these songs which navigate between sweetness and violence, pain and happiness.

Recto Our summer of loveVerso Our summer of love

We begin this decade with the fiftieth listed of the label, an album of its "founding fathers". After years of prolific, Ultraliberal therefore much more rare these days. The duo no longer living in the same city, last met in the summer of 2008. This session, lost in an computer crash and found recently, introduced three duo improvisations for two guitars, loop station, a micro-switch and two effects pedals. A return to "sources", while gentle radicalism. Even the feedback began to sing. The fourth piece, with Fabrice, announces Pimp. We hope other impromptu sessions of the same barrel.

Recto Putler Kaputt !Verso Putler Kaputt !

A new Pimp opus confirms the biting nature of their creations, their ability to create worlds where beauty competes with the abstraction, the cynicism with malaise, where various tools and technologies compete "live" : a reading of our world of over-communication / miscommunication, and permanent war.

Better known for his graphic work (see his site in the links), Benoît makes discreetly rhythmic songs, hiding color and images, whose wealth is revealed gradually as the plays.
