Four new (free) releases to come your way thanks to the hard graft from the guys over at Audio Gourmet…
Julien Demoulin – Fanø
A French sound artist who also records as Silencio, Julien Demoulin is welcomed into the Audio Gourmet fold with this short EP called Fanø.
Recorded under his own name, Fanø is an EP that explores a variety of sounds through atmospheric textures and onto beautiful droning soundscapes.
The concept for the EP was inspired by a particular visit to Fanø, an island off the west coast of Denmark on which he has close friends. Everytime Julien visits the island he feels more and more at peace with himself.
Recently, he was feeling extremely sad and confused but couldn’t understand why. Upon arriving at Fanø which at the time was coated with snow, he slowly started to make sense of this situation and understood what was required to improve his situation. As he walked along the beach, this realisation set in as the snow slowly started to melt away.
As a homage to friends on the island and that particular trip, Julien’s EP for Audio Gourmet intends to capture the essence of Fanø in the hope that its peace invoking aura transfers to all who listen.
Deep Into Perspectives – Vintage Noir
Returning to Audio Gourmet with a second EP, we welcome back Deep Into Perspectives to see out the winter with a trio of dark and mysterious tracks.
Deep Into Perspectives is ambient and experimental artist Kent Nymann, from Norway.
With a new set of tools and the cold and dark Norwegian winter came new inspiration for this follow up EP to last year’s ‘The Lost Tapes’…
The result is ‘Vintage Noir’, a project inspired by movie-scores and the dark winter mood.
The noise-textures are field-recordings from old media such as magnetic tapes, film, vinyl recording and noise from electric and mechanical devices.
Vintage Noir is a blend of textures and melodic passages which give a dense and atmospheric sound. This short collection of work is a step closer to movie-scores in the way that it is produced and arranged, marking a progression in the expanding discography of Deep Into Perspectives.
Creation VI – Planetary Nebula
Creation VI is an ambient/drone project for Ukrainian sound artist Tim Six, started in 2006.
The main aim of the project is to discover the properties of music as a tool for expressing nonverbal concepts. The first such notions arise in philosophy, mysticism and of course, in all kind of creativity. Power of ambience is practically inexhaustible, so every aspect in which there is a need of musical thinking, finds its particular expression. so the music of Cretion VI may vary from dark and ritual ambiences to weightless, transparent drones.
‘Planetary Nebula’ was recorded with guitar and some reduced voices, with delay and reverb used for creating a continuous flow of sound.
This work explains the genesis of planetary nebulae in the form of sound. From astronomical observations, we know that these bizarre clouds of ionized gas are the remnants of a stellar atmosphere ejected by the explosion of giant star. We can express the numbers, we can capture the spectra and images but the actual feeling of being inside the nebula, experiencing its movement, display of colors and energy is difficult to capture.
Throughout the passages within these two tracks, the Creation VI project intends to musically depict this atmosphere and allow the listener a further insight into experiencing planetary nebula…
Leonardo Rosado – Dream On
Next on Audio Gourmet we welcome aboard Leonardo Rosado, an artist and curator of the Feedback Loop netlabel. Aside from running Feedback Loop, Leonardo’s main musical focus explores the collision between sound, poetry and everyday life by using automatic expressions that he likes to call ‘wordsoundscapes’. The construction of his music pieces expose daily life happenings that are individual and at the same time universal; it has a strong sense of suggesting a pause to think about our actions and our surroundings. Words and sounds have different meanings depending on the listener, but only if they take the time to delve into the complexity of their own stimuli.
His past discography includes work released on the likes of his own Feedback Loop label as well as Test Tube, Relaxed Machinery, Public Spaces Lab, XS Records and Clinical Archives
In addition to the sounds you can hear in ‘Dream On’, here is a collection of short poems for each track that offering an insight into the concept behind this project:
REBUILDING THE DREAM
here I am
trying to fit old memories in new clothing
forcing my rebirth
feeling the heartbeat
like a new born
seeing through belly skin
when I hear that ringing
I know that nothing will be left of me
nothing worth singing about
turning around in bed
closing the eyes in darkness.
nothing will stop the unrest
the murmur of change
