Exploring the Universe of Analogue Sounds: Zanov - Bert / Sonic Immersion

Posted by John K-N on September 17, 2014 at 9:23am 0 Comments

Bert posted this over on Hypnos and I thought I'd share it here...  first few paragraphs below - but it's a long one!  Rest is at his site - John K-N

"Hello all,



The last half year I've been busy writing an informative feature on legendary '70's French synthesist Zanov;  

the latter has surfaced recently after 30 years of absence,  presenting his new self-released, factory-pressed cd "Virtual Future".



To read the Zanov feature, feel free to visit 

www.sonicimmersion.org/feature.php?letter=Z&feature=91244 



Enjoy! - Bert / Sonic Immersion"







Zanov is the nom-de plume of French musician and computer engineer Pierre Salkazanov, who for many remained in vague, if not mysterious realms for a long time. Born in Paris in 1947, Pierre started playing the piano at the age of 6, but was taught to do so in a very old-school fashion. It had nothing to do with the magic of the instrument or the emotional impact of the sound of the notes, but just reproducing what was written on the score-sheets. During this strict regime, Pierre endured many hits of a ruler on his fingers for each mistake he made, but also got the chance occasionally to enjoy the taste of a piece of chocolate when a session was concluded not too bad. Nevertheless, it ended up Mr Salkazanov hating to play the piano for a very long time. 



When he was about 17 years old, Pierre bought his first e-guitar, which symbolized a true sense of freedom. Not long after…

Echo Us Memoirs Published, As A Priori Memoriae Hit's Stores

Posted by Absolute Probability Recordings on September 16, 2014 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

Echo Us releases II:XII, À Priori Memoriaé, New Videoclip, And 2001 Memoirs.

(9-17-2014- Portland, Ore.)



A recent series of articles runs through Ethan Matthew's distant past until the forming of Echo Us, his eventual hospitalization in Nov 2001, and the transition that bolted his music in a new direction:

Echo Us Memoirs on 2001



"I had lost complete contact with everyone. I was letting myself out of the house through the front window- I spent 2 weeks in the inpatient mental ward, which is essentially a glorified prison. They ran every test and practice they could, from speaking and personality tests all the way to Rorschach diagrams. I was close to having ECT done, but they couldn't find a big enough excuse, and thus just stuck me on anti-psychotic medication while I still was coming down off a massive binge of psychedelics"



"Echo Us was born under peculiar circumstances, and it's time to let the cat out of the bag after almost 15 years of silence", say's Ethan

Earlier in 2014 Echo Us signed a worldwide deal with Germany's Dust On The Tracks Records for the release of its forth full-length album, II:XII, À Priori Memoriaé. The album is now available on digipak through SPV, and worldwide partners. A Priori Memoriae is the last in a trilogy series started with 2009's The Tide Decides, and as such, represents the close of a journey through some of the strangest and most beautiful music produced by the former Greyhaven guitarist and composer.

II:XII, À Priori Memoriaé continues the Echo Us tradition of combining disparate musical elements seldom seen, from rapid-fire instrumental bravado and developments set apart by choral arrangements, concert harp and woodwinds. Dust On The Tracks writes about the release:

"It is somehow a return to the concept albums that dominated the progressive rock of the 1970s- the album is one the…

[CFM-EX3] Beneath The World - The Day After

Posted by James Shain on September 16, 2014 at 4:00pm 0 Comments


Put out a new release on my label's EX series today. A fantastic release of Chillout Electronic music to wind the day down with. Including swirling synths, pads, rhodes, laid back basslines and jungle loops slowed down to create a unique sound that is Beneath The World. At this time we only have a single to share of his music, but boy is it good stuff.

BEING DAMO SUZUKI: THE MAN WHO PRACTICALLY INVENTED POST-PUNK AND AMBIENT MUSIC

Posted by John K-N on September 16, 2014 at 10:34am 0 Comments

source:  http://noisey.vice.com/blog/damo-suzuki-interview

By Robert Greer

Damo Suzuki was born in Japan in 1950. As a teenager, he left Asia to travel Europe and was quickly recruited to be the singer of Can, an avant-garde band from Cologne that lived in an abandoned Cinema who, depending on who you speak to, invented post-punk, ambient music, and The Stone Roses. The Fall even wrote a song about him. Damo left Can after 4 albums in 1974 to walk around the world, and since 1983 he has been on a never ending world tour, playing improvisational music with a network of hundreds of musicians worldwide. We caught up to talk 60s communes, nearly dying in the Sahara Desert, and channelling the Stone Age.

 

Noisey: What was Japan like when you were growing up? Were you playing music?

I was so young, like 17, so I wasn’t making music, no. Time was totally different compared to now. When I was 8 or 9 years old I got my first instrument, a flute I think, then a clarinet and saxophone. I had a sister who worked in a bank and every birthday she presented me with a musical instrument. I also had a guitar and an organ. She wanted me to play music.

You came to Europe in 1967 and were doing street performance, is that right?

No, not really. I was in a commune in Sweden in the countryside with 50 people just enjoying living and doing nothing, and being in nature. In big cities you don’t have too much air. Last week I was in Slovenia in the countryside by the river and the fishes, I miss these places because big cities - although Cologne is not as big as London - make me quite stressed, they make you lose time and…

Meredith Graves (Perfect Pussy) Talks Andrew W.K., Lana Del Rey and Authenticity at Basilica Soundscape 2014

Posted by John K-N on September 15, 2014 at 3:30pm 1 Comment

This is an extremely well written, thought out discussion on stars and expectations and double standards tearing people apart.  If not sure you want to read/skim it all...  Scroll down to the last 2 paragraphs.  - John K-N

Meredith Graves (Perfect Pussy) Talks Andrew W.K., Lana Del Rey and Authenticity at Basilica Soundscape 2014

With devastating clarity, Perfect Pussy's singer damns the cavernous double standard applied to Andrew WK's authenticity and Lana Del Rey's.

This weekend at the amazing Basilica Soundscape festival in Hudson, New York, Perfect Pussy singer Meredith Graves gave a spoken word piece that just might have become a manifesto. People wept, people laughed, people cheered, the New York Times enthused and one of Soundscape’s organizers suggested that Gravesrun for president. It was the talk of the whole festival and no one who saw it will ever forget it.



At the Talkhouse, we figured you might want to read what all the excitement was about. Here is Graves’ piece, in its entirety. We invite your thoughtful comments.
