HUBERT HEATHERTOES is an interdisciplinary artist from Nelson (New Zealand) who revolving around many different media. His work although trying to capture different areas of interest focuses on the experiences of transcendental and spiritual nature according to the motto about ever happening transformation in terms of molecular processes, reincarnation, oneironautical dream experience, vast terrain of absurdity that surrounds us. As a linguist he approaches music and other media with grammatical dexterity of incomprehensive surprises and disastrous dychotomy between autistic alienation and the idiom of overexpresiveness. Since 2014 he manages “Astipalea Records” and a number of musical b-side projects such as: Igloodoom, Lumber and more. This album is a set of eight tracks which he composed over a period of 2014 which include some of the field recordings from New Zealand, Australia, Turkey and UK in various locations.

REZ EPO
































http://www.controlvalve.net/thumbs/RE.jpg"Xantp"
Year:  2011
Country:  Poland
City:  Kielce (Świętokrzyskie)
Artist:  Konrad Materek
Label:  Control Valve rec.
Format:  EP
Tracks:  1
Time: 17 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:    Drone      Noise




























ACCORDING TO THE ARTIST: "i began to make noise sometime around 2005-2006, under a different alias. since then, my sound evolved from crude and rather crunchy digital (at that time all my recordings were made on laptop with Audiomulch as my main tool) loops to slightly more refined, drony landscapes with some ambient and noise elements still present. for the time being i mostly focus on further developing my sound and gathering ideas for a full-length material, hopefully to come out this year. i also run my own diy label - chaosynod -  in which majority of my works is released... and i hate writing bios...










GEAR: the cornerstone of my sound are two signal generators: a no-input mixer (crappy behringer one) and electro-harmonix flanger hoax, the latter just working on its own, no fx loop whatsoever. both signals are then processed with up to 5 different effects, most often RAK phaser, ibanez chorus/flanger (the one with really neat 'turbo' switch), occasionally boss oc-2 octaver, and the last but not least - digitech digiverb and digidelay, both of which i always place at the end of the chain. i try to avoid using distortion of any kind, since my experience is that it tends to flatten the whole sound and make certain details simply inaudible. i prefer to finish each track in a single take, so the whole process actually involves a good deal of rehearsing. subsequently, everything's recorded in audacity and edited/mastered in adobe audition".

LOUISE VIND NIELSEN



































"Twentyfive minutes"
Year:  2015
Country:   Denmark
City:   Copenhagen
Artist:  Louise Vind Nielsen
Label:  none
Format:  net
Tracks:  1
Time:  25 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Drone      Noise






















This twentyfive minute track is recorded in by bedroom in one-take. I was wearing headphones while playing my beloved Roland SH-101 synthesizer through a cheap digital delay-pedal and a mini guitar-amplifier (Since I didn't have my own mixer at that time). One of the best Louise's release but the best at date. This only one track is not harsh noise than other recordings but more drone / ambient oriented. No silence, no stop, music / sounds non-stop and not bored at all. Sometimes remind me instead a "Roland SH-101" the instrument was an electronic and distorted bass guitar, some kind of bass lines but modulated and distorted.

Kulsort (Danish: Black like coal, meaning: completely dark or very dirty) is one-woman synthetic noise drones and dark minimal something. These tracks are all one-takes recorded in my bedroom. I was wearing headphones while playing on my Roland SH-101 synthesizer through a cheap digital delay-pedal and a mini guitar-amplifier (Since I didn't have my own mixer at that time). Hope you'll enjoy! NB! In some parts (e.g. Five minutes love of bass) the frequenzes are so low that you might not hear them on your integrated computer speakers. Use headphones or a decent sound system.

SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK




































http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/500/100799091/Flaunt+It+LP.png"Flaunt it"
Year:  1986
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  EMI
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  9
Time:  50 min.
Genre:  electronic , rock
Style:     Synth-Pop       Rockabilly




























SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK were a british synth-pop band formed in 1982 by bassist Tony James (former of the punk rock band Generation X with Billy Idol as a vocalist late 70s). The band had three UK Top 40 hit singles, including the song "Love Missile F1-11" and "21st Century Boy". Tony James sought to form a "fantasy, fun and futuristic band" after leaving Generation X. He recruited Neal X (Whitmore) via an advert in "Melody Maker", and then set about recruiting a singer. After considering approaching Andrew Eldritch and Annie Lennox, he recruited Martin Degville after meeting him in the YaYa clothes shop in Kensington Market where he was working. Degville was a clothes designer and supplied the band's wardrobe, and YaYa became the band's base. James's former Generation X colleague and then drummer for Johnny Thunders, Mark Laff, played that first gig with the band. On their return to London, they recruited drummers Ray Mayhew and Chris Kavanagh, both of whom acquired drum kits from former drummers for the Clash, Topper Headon and Terry Chimes respectively. There was a further Clash link, with Mick Jones working with the band as live sound engineer. At the suggestion of Fachna O'Kelly, manager of The Boomtown Rats who had provided much of the band's equipment, the band adopted the name SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK - believed to be a reference to a Russian street gang (which was said to translate as "burn, burn satellite". Though the spelling "sigue" does not exist in Russian, which uses the Cyrillic alphabet, the equivalent Russian word сиг does exist, but with the unrelated meaning of a type of whitefish of the Coregonus genus). A more plausible source of the band's name is an actual Filipino prison gang founded in the 1960s, SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK, "sigue-sigue" meaning "care-free" and "sputnik" a reference to the Soviet-made satellite launched in 1957. They also recruited Degville's YaYa co-worker Yana (real name Jane Farrimond) to play keyboards. The band's sound was, according to James, arrived at by accident, when he inadvertently mixed elements of film soundtracks with their demo track "Love Missile F1-11" while putting together a video compilation from his favourite films.

JOHN WALL






























JOHN WALL + MARK DURGAN
"139"
Year:  2012
Country:  UK
Label:  Entr'acte
Format:  CD
Tracks:  6
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Experimental




























Autodidact electronic composer whose contribution to the field is widely noted by critics of new music. His work has moved from early plunderphonic compositions - where he brought together unlikely combinations of musical genres to create fantastical new works – to large scale works composed of thousands of tiny fragments which create the impression of virtual orchestras. According to one critic, Wall’s "releases sound like the most finely crafted audio sculptures, somewhere between the contemporary composition of Lachenmann and the experiments of early laptop musicians of the mid 90s".

FOSSILS

Year:  2014

Artist:  Daniel farr & David Payne
Label:   Beartown rec.

Tracks:  2
Time:   25 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:      Experimental      Noise


























"David Payne began building his Fossils empire back in 2004. Since that time Fossils has colonized the underground circuit with a steady flow of ultra-limited tapes/cdrs, many of them through David's own Middle James Co imprint. The Fossils sound is always one of formless despair. Churning low-grade electronics, primitive tape manipulations, and an aura of stoned reverie are all genuine signatures." -Graham Lambkin.

Year:  2006
Country:  Canada

Label:   Middle James Co.
Format:  cassette
Edition:  13 copies
Tracks:  2
Time:  70 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Experimental      Noise




























"Middle James Co", from Hamilton Ontario, started out as a clearly post-American Tapes/post-Fag Tapes cassette label. The covers were artfully sloppy, the tapes were spray painted, production quality was mainly of the recorded-onto-a-walkman-from-across-the-street variety, and the productivity was immense even though editions were extremely small. It took awhile for main "Middle James Co" man David Payne to come into his own, and boy did he ever. Later/recent recordings done under his own name and especially those by his band Fossils are stunning. This untitled cassette is from 2006, and was "published" (if you could even call it that) in an edition of just 13 copies. It shows an early hint at the punk-David Tudor/Voice Crack homemade-electronic scrunch that would grow more refined in subsequent years, but it's still a quite good live-in-one-take dirt-bath.

WOLF EYES





























http://destijlrecs.com/images/wolfeyes_LO.jpg"No answer-lower floors"
Year:  2013
Country:  US
City:  Detroit
Label:  De Stiijl
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  6
Time:  36 MIN.
Genre:  rock , electronic
Style:     Noise     Experimental




























In those last eight years, WOLF EYES have refused to slow down or settle into an easy cycle of creation. In spite of several lineup changes - from Aaron Dilloway’s vacancy and the recruitment of Mike Connelly (who has now left the band) to the recent acquisition of yet another Michigan dude, “Crazy Jim” Baljo - WOLF EYES has shown no signs of stopping their sonic assault. If anything, they have proven that all you really need to innovate is passion and some good friends who are willing to be in your band. "No  Answer: Lower Floors" is arguably the first major chapter in the continuing story of WOLF EYES. Even though Dilloway and Connelly are no longer full-time wolves, they both make an appearance on this release, so consider this a family reunion of sorts. Exciting? You bet! Captivating? …well, most of the time.
