KEVIN SANDERS





















PETALS
"Sense or nation"
Year:   2013
Country:   UK
City:   Bath
Artist:   Kevin Sanders
Label:   Hairdryer Excommunication rec.
Format:  net
Tracks:  3
Time:   21 min.
Genre:   electronic
Style:      Noise      Ambient      Drone




















Since 2008 the experimentalist musician Kevin Sanders has recorded different works under the name of PETALS . With PETALS and until date he has recorded exactly 10 albums and 3 ep´s, most of them throught his own independent label "Hairdryer Excommunication" or another labels like "Beartown Records", "Striate Cortex Records" or "Afternoons Modeling". His musical style has several changes it depend of the album, but almost always there are two common points: drone and noise. There is some album noisier but I choose this one because I think that pretty much sums up the formula of the artist. "Caress (and care less)" consists of a single, unique and long track (over 20 minutes) in which the noise is very moderate and content, and there are constant effects and sounds reminiscent of the typical ambient and drone landscapes. The sound and noise here conveys a sense of total absence of hurry or stress, but on the contrary, conveys a sense that induces calm, quiet and reflection. Very good impression my first contact with PETALS.

YU MIYASHITA




















"Navy see res in brighton"
Country:  Japan
City:  Yamanashi
Label:  Matter rec.
Format:  net
Photo  cover:  Yu Miyashita
Tracks:  11
Time:   45 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:    Glitch    Ambient    Noise






















 Electronic Musician as Yu Miyashita aka Yaporigami is running a music studio offering sound design, soundtrack, mixing, mastering services and creating his own works. His style is mostly glitch, ambient and noise which are constructed from digital debris, errors and the processing (often the misuse, reissue or abuse) of normally extraneous sounds, instruments and machinery. Glitch musicians will record bugs, crashes, system errors, hardware noise, skipping and audio distortion on their computers. This album is based on free improvisation, free creativity and pure instinct and was recorded during 2011. This type of music is more textural than structural, cutting together elements of electronic and noise music and even a silence or abscence of sound. Sometimes it remind me musicians like Fennesz or Yugi Kondo, or another noisier like KK Null or Alexei Borisov. Excellent album.

STÖRFUNK















"Infiltrat"
Year:  2004
Country:  Germany
City:  Düsselford
Artist:  Markus Zimmermann
Label:  Le Petit Machiniste
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  48 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:      Rhythmic Noise
























This record opens my mind with the almost "dance" sound of fan blades rotating, gradually increasing for several minutes. If you turn it up all the way you can hear the actual sound of the blades and the spinning, and if you give it any kind of serious EQ boost you will get a speaker-destroying rumble. The sonics on the first track of this record are very physical, personal and internal. The extreme sonics go into a rhythmic noise realm that is very disturbing in sound and funny in nature. The use of live fan-blade manipulation as backing source material of brutal rhythmic noise amplified electronics stems from an innocent exploration of sounds that fascinated the composer from a very young age. The explosive vocal patterns and shouting compositions in some ways recall Markus earlier works with techno and noise,  but always within the extremely individualized and unique lens that this formation of Markus work has materialized into. I have just discovered a little gem and I recommend this album for those who love rhythmic noise and powernoise.

Format:  cassette
Edition:  43 copies
Tracks:  3
Time:  28 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:    Musique Concrète    Noise





















One half of STAR TURBINE and the whole entirety of himself, Claus Poulsen presents 3 live pieces recorded in the UK and Denmark. Side A features 15 minutes culled from a derranged late night, 'straight from the airport set', while side B is a hack 'n' slash job featuring racket generated at both Electric Knife Records, London and Skrat Studio, Copenhagen. Field recordings, processed dribbling, violin bow abuse and whistling filters. Intense textural investigations from the man who controls vermin with HNWs for fun - but not today. Edition of 43 tapes with full-colour 'trans-human' cover by CWB with Cheshire Plains on-tape stickers. I think there left still some physical copies of this cassette, so If somebody want to get it can go HERE . I had this gentelmen added as a friend in a net-work, but had not yet to listen to with attention his music until now. In his bandcam everybdy can to listen to 6 albums and I seventh album in other site, I mean, nobody has excuse to know this interesting experimentalist musician and make his own conclusions. We don´t deal with an extreme noise, even not noise music, but rather experimental, musique concrète and field recordings.

VIOLENT PINK




























https://ia601002.us.archive.org/21/items/communism_noise/violent.jpeg"Idem"
Year:  2010
Country:  US
State:  Georgia
Artist:  Tyler Keen
Label:  Banned prod.
Format:  cassette
Edition:  50 copies
Tracks:  13
Time:  70 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Noise      Spoken Words






















Sometime I don´t know If I believe seriously some noise projects, because some adopt a political statements or aesthetic so extreme, that seem unreal. Needless to say names you can think of several names. This is the case of VIOLENT PINK, very similar to other noise project, although here the human voice is used as an instrument: screams, spoken words, speeches, etc. As I have explained and if I'm not mistaken, VIOLENT PINK wants to claim the space of gays and lesbians in the noise scene / industry. And I think that is very fair and appropriate, if the project is serious and Real. Anyway, this cassette from 2010 is not bad at all and has 13 tracks = over 70 minutes of noise. Tyler Keen was the musician.

"Land of volcano"
Year:  2013
Country:  Japan
Label:  Grind karaoke rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time: 30 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Japanoise





















Kusafuka Kimihide been producing NOISE with K2 and other names since 1980 in his native Japan. A part also founded his own label "Kinky Music Institute" to self-edit their material, but after it has been edited to similar bands in different formats (cassett, CD or EP). The style of K2 "metal-junk" and is super extreme, called JAPA-NOISE or what is the same (aka), most insufferable noise, unbearable, unendurable, tortuous, dañaino and all negative adjectives that can add to. The HNW is a lullaby to take the kids to bed, compared with K2 and generally go with the whole string of hysterical Japanoise bands.
