+Dog+’s influences can clearly be recognised on this 7″-release dating from 1994. First couple of minutes sound like a Neubauten gig from the very early eighties, then it goes more in the direction of a very early SPK-performance, and when the voice sets in we’re more or less heading into a Throbbing Gristle direction. Metal banging throughout the entire record, old school electronics and screams, all recorded live.
Improvisations with laptop (powered with MaxMSP) and voice. The voice has multiple functions: as a source (using texts, phonemes and all sort of utterances…), signal processor and controller. The approach to both performing and programming is highly intuitive. Mastered by Jeff Carey at The Doctor is OUT Studios.
‘Dream Landscape’ is the first official solo release by ANEMONE TUBE after 9 years of silence. Originally founded in 1996 in Southern Germany, ANEMONE TUBE has quite made a name for himself in the industrial/noise genre especially due to the psychogenic nature of his music.
On this new release ANEMONE TUBE creates massive ambient/noise soundscapes. The sounds are pulsating, drowning and floating, tormenting and caressing – all culminating in a haunting sonic experience.
‘Dream Landscape’ is – together with the album ‘Death over China’ – the first part of the ‘Suicide Series’. To this field recordings made in China provide a conceptional basis.
‘Dream Landscape’ is a concept album of fierce malignant power. In a poetic way ANEMONE TUBE combines analytical realism of the phenomenal world with buddhist psychology and nihilist rhetoric influenced by the visionary authors H.P. Lovecraft and Yukio Mishima.
Mastering by JAMES PLOTKIN, January/February 2010.
Split between two modular synthesizer Seattle-based artists. Slowly evolving soundscapes, minimalist atmospheres leading to heightened emotional landscapes.
Moan and drone from this Boston artist. Synth and loop pedal improvisations working up to frenzied climaxes. For fans of Emeralds, Grouper.
With Sau Kraštas, Girnu Giesmes presents about 40 minutes of flowing, shining, metallic drone atmospheres. The disc is packaged in a simple black and white sleeve depicting blurry images of far-off landscapes which reflect the sound accurately.
“The two live performances on this disc portray the sound of a microphone passing through antimatter – the haunting atmosphere of a slow drone, a glimpse of captured transmissions, the grinding crackle and crunch of a machine eating itself alive only to finally collapse in a sea of manipulated feedback ripe with wooden electronics running low on batteries.. Recorded in ’95 and ’98, these two pieces both feature the line-up of Roel Meelkop, Peter Duimelinks & Frans de Waard. Co-released with Chondritic Sound.” – Troniks.
Sean Moore, Lid Emba’s auteur, is based in Atlanta, GA, while Ryan Huber, Bobcrane’s creator, lives in Bloomington, IN. Sparked by a common association with Stickfigure Records and hearing each others’ tracks on MySpace, Sean and Ryan began collaborating. Sustained by constant e-mail dialogue and fueled by snail-mailing sound files back and forth, they managed to construct six tracks of psychotropic headphone food despite having different hardware-software setups and being separated by over 500 miles. Megaton mastered by James Plotkin, We Substitute Radiance coherently balances and blends Lid Emba’s unorthodox swirl of deranged metrics and texture with Bobcrane’s dronescape meets boom box aesthetic, resulting in a hook inflected collection of art damaged and benevolently demented musique electronique.

One guitar,one bass,one mixer,some pedals and so much desire to do nothing.
Album of the music by Igor based on the paintings of Ron Linden. Igor is one of the most diverse musician/composer in modern music.
Looking at the interrelationship of Classical Avant-Garde and Jazz, or Experimental Rock music, or improvising live with Japanese Sitar(!) player Riko Tanaka, Igor methodically explored borders of musical styles and interconnections of various art forms.
In OGOGO-Linden album, Igor creates musical impressions of Ron Linden’s paintings preserving the original titles of the works(Mussorgsky’s Pictures At The Exhibition comes to mind), and also adding his own, darker, twist in combining Eroscope and Eye Spring into one work(apparently Charles Ives’ influence), and remaking Pidgin to fit compilation request from TRX Records(Aphex Twin stirred).
The outcome is approximating an acid trip, even the strangest one, like one to Saturn to meet Sun Ra. Album recorded and mixed at Peacock Studio, Los Angeles. Comes with 16 page booklet of reproductions of original paintings.

Olekranon is a one-man project of Ryan Hurst from Korperschwache. Best described as ambient drone with a consistent back beat. Would likely appeal to fans of Steve Reich, Neu!, Future Sound Of London, Brian Eno, Boards Of Canada and most open-minded fans of the experimental genre.
Ambient noise, A strong amalgamation of sounds and a more coherent ebb and flow are evident. A nice mix of muddled samples and screeching machines all backed by a thick drone. Enigmatic artists.
Penetration Camp/Slicing Grandpa – Four Flies on Grey Vinyl 7″ [ Drug-Front Productions/Strain Theory/Scatological Liberation Front ]
Limited Edition of 313 on grey vinyl and hand numbered in blood. Industrial and strange experimentalism.
The Molalla Tapes is the first release of the Swedish power electronics project Positive Adjustments, run by Krister Bergman (Demons that Drove).
The work is based on the true crime case of “the Molalla Forest Killer” Dayton Leroy Rogers.
The work is divided in five parts (for a total of 13 tracks). Every part has a specific and different atmosphere, with an accurate experimentations of different kinds of power electronics sounds, from the harsher sounds to the more introspective and obscure ones. Highly recommended to the true lovers of power electronics!
Pro-printed cdr, limited to 40 copies, is housed in a mini dvd case and it comes in a plastic transparent envelope with six images of the victims “buried” in land and tied with a black or white ribbon.
Over an hour of harsh industrial noise from this long running American power electronics/death industrial project. Limited CDR with full-color packaging.
The Black Category is one 11 minute track of synth music ranging from droning textures, simple enduring melodies, and converging pads. It’s slow and this is most definitely synthesizer music not falling into stylized genres like new age, electronica, or ambient. It’s all three of those, yet not those either. Almost a pseudo academic edge to it but it certainly does paint an atmosphere that does evoke thought and inspiration at moments.
Swamp Horse is 2 man project featuring Josh Lay who records noise under his own name, and an unknown to me; Morgan Rankin. These two apparently create lo-fi drone/experimental with some folk influences. The sounds on Gravity features bleak, muddy textures; sound collage, lo-fi folk, and noise collide.
Ur was born from the collaboration between Federico Esposito and Mauro Sciaccaluga, both hailing from the hardcore-punk scene and from bands like Heartside (F.E.), Never Was, Downright, Kafka, Stalker (M.S.). The two joined in 2003 to work on F.E.s industrial solo-project (a.k.a. Den LXV) live set, later they decided to collaborate and improvise together to create a new entity. Andrea Ferraris joined the band in the early days of 2005, contributing to define further on the sonic identity of the combo. A.F. is well known for having played and recorded with different bands ranging from hardcore to indie-post rock to experimental music (Airchamber3, Deep End, Burning Defeat, Permanent Scar, Onefineday, Ultraviolet Make Me Sick, Permanent Scar, etc). Ur music is mostly based on improvisation that usually starts with drones or samples (with no pre-definite structure), to which they superimpose layers of electro-acoustic noisescapes coming from objects, field recordings, analog and traditional instruments processed using a load of pedals and effects. The sound ends painting a solid, harsh and dramatic industrial lounge where archaic instincts and modern obsessions meet. To use the words of a sound engineer after one of their live sets: it all sounds like early Pink Floyd on acid…on muriatic acid.
Here’s an ambient noise compilation that consists of mostly Seattle-based artists. Recommended for people into contemporary music with a dark edge to it. Noise afficiandos should be looking toward Seattle because this is some interesting stuff that they have going on over there. Existence Establishment review.
Why is this here and why should you pick this up? Well, for one thing, it includes a collaborative track with Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, along with Rich Hoak of Brutal Truth, from our spring 2010 recording session. It also includes a track featuring Nicola Vinciguerra of Fecalove. Not to mention the numerous other grindworld luminaries that took part…
