And if you think we’ve heard the best collaboration works yet, then let this one surprise your ears. Mister Vapor (aka the extremely prolific Mystified) joined up with Altus (one of the ambient great netlabelartists). Well fitting in some of the other ‘deep sea dives’ of this months JNN releases this album takes you deeper. Where the wonderful string-drones of Altus meet with the dark-drones of Mister Vapor this is a clash of experimentalism that cannot be missed. We are proud to host...

Yes, its true. This mighty fine album is not brand new; it has been released and available in the past on Jamendo. But all good things come to an end, and there where there are endings there are new beginnings. Anime Hill has graciously offered his very first album for a release on Just not normal and we couldn’t be more proud of this dark ambientish but certainly gorgeous experimentalic album. Enjoy the rich sounds and deep churns if you have not before and hopefully somewhere in 2010...

"Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings." The act of capturing EVP activity to support paranormal research is a source of much contention between skeptics and believers.

Another album that was sent to me early March. But it was untill I’ve started preparing this album that I fell deeply in love with the sounds and atmospheres here. As the title of the album suggests, much of its content is based on ice, and no no thin ice in here, but thick and most wondrous layers of ice will subdue you into a parallel world of cristals and frozen water. When at one point the world may have lost its icecaps there will still remain the memory through sound. My suggestion;...

The twelve pieces on this album reflect an ongoing interest in the temporal processes underlying musical creation from two apparently contrasting yet ultimately similar musical contexts. Post-modernist, systems-based pieces for traditional classical ensembles stand side-by-side with more static electronic works. In the former category the obvious reference points might be the work of Steve Reich and other minimalists but in contrast to the extended time-scales operative in such work, the pieces...

From 1967 through 1970 my father, composer Harold Shapero, was director of the Brandeis University electronic music studio. The studio was equipped with a Buchla 100 modular synthesizer, which was at the time the state of the art. Though I was not a Brandeis student, but still in high school, my father allowed and encouraged me to work with the Buchla in the studio.

Mike's main noisescaping device is "Thing One", the Oberheim Xpander analog modular synthesizer he has been playing for 25 years now. Currently, as for the past 10 years or more, he uses Thing One primarily for self-modulating noise textures that can be manipulated in real time with broad control...

In Greek mythology, Ixion and Tantalus were both legendary for their extreme hubris and the dire consequences that befell them as a result. Each was granted an audience with the gods, and betrayed the generosity shown to them. So many tales abound of the transgressions these two figures made against the gods that there is no one story to explain their unique fates. Yet it is precisely these unenviable fates for which they are most remembered. In its most simple form, the tale of Ixion is that...

Awake in a dark room is the follow-up EP to Slow Motions, compiled from leftover tracks recorded before the album sessions, and one newer track (Avoid A Void). Because this EP consists of material recorded vaguely around the same time as the Slow Motions sessions it very much is a companion piece to the album, though musically itâs pretty different.

"Stereoscopic laid is an experiment in sound. What you are hearing are not 'sounds', but in fact are 'images'. The idea behind this album was to generate sound tracks equivalent to stereoscopic images, in which you see a slightly different point of view of the same scene with each eye, creating the illusion of depth. The process was really simple, I chose for each track an image and I generated two similar versions with a minor deviation, similar to the perspectives that both eyes...

C Reider, the man behind Vuzh and the man behind the ‘Electret Quintet’ series has certainly taken a different direction with this single track release. Amidst the field of drones, drummachines and recorded sounds he creates an ambience of experimental finesse. Dive into a strange world that will enchant your ears and take you on journeys not taken before.

The last full moon of summer and we are two thirds of the way into a year of full moon concert series. Another single track that comes close to the hour mark. Dennis Moser certainly treats us with the splendor of his musical talent. Besides the usual guitar and bassguitar improvs on this occasion Dennis introduces the wonderful sounds of the sitar (or dulcimer). It will certainly be a happy and sad day simultaneously when the goal set is reached and a full year will be catalogued and preserved...

The Dry Well is a dark and emotionally charged work of musique concrete, created by extreme digital processing of acoustic sound sources. The first three tracks ("Two-Thirds God", "Descent of Inanna", and "Under") are based on the Epic of Gilgamesh, a Sumerian legend that may be the oldest surviving work of literature. They evoke ritual, mythic journey, and the transition from the material to the spiritual realm. The last three tracks ("For Want of a...

Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings. The source recordings were mangled, manipulated, abused and violated, in some cases beyond recognition, to create 18 distinctly different interpretations ranging from minimal drone, to noise, to electronica.

MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls. This incarnation, mind6Spiral, resulted when Tim Walters (see e.g. JNN03) traded a night’s lodging (10 August 2008) for one hour of feeding audio from his laptop into Mike’s mixer, while Mike added his own sounds and a live audience on StillStream.com listened. It was a fair trade. Mindspiral Tim Walters

Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance...

The album was born by recording from midnight till seven in the morning. The album consists of live tracks. The first four are made entirely from the 7-hour recording (all encoded at 256kbs). The last track is a live recording with additional instruments (encoded at 192kbs). “ All compositions by Respirator Artwork: Juneau Check out our JNN home
