Materia Confusa's fourth release on Webbed Hand is a pair of musique concrete compositions built around some intriguingly deep concepts. About: "The title track, Axis Mundi, revolves literally around the idea of its namesake. The sound of a Jacobs Ladder creates the core central rhythm which is yet another incarnation of the theme. An attempt at representing both ascending, and descending, movement around the cosmic axis. The second track, Strange Loop, is patterned after the ideas set...

The title of Pelicagnosis is no empty play on words. These four tracks do venture quite some distance into the realm of gnosis. Here is a blend of ambient sounds with addition of guitar, vocals, and other instruments, resulting in a feast for the ears. A look at the credits for each track will show you that this isn't a weekend warrior laptop production. This thing is big, and there's a depth and devotion being expressed here that merits a deep and devoted listening. mayfairgrin is part of the...

Manatee is a 45-minute ambient soundscape which give the feeling of sleeping outdoors under the stars, on a balmy southern Summer night. Electronic and instrumental sounds are blended with field recordings in a relaxing continuum with no dissonance, shocks or surprises. The whole effect is warm and agreeably trance-inducing. This piece has a brain-massaging bass pulse and a nice panoramic sound arrangement. If you like the Webbed Hand Rain series, as well as the other excellent ambient releases...

Fans of both ambient and the Fahey-esque primitive sound will appreciate these all-acoustic soundscapes by Kecap Tuyul. This solo album of Kecap Tuyul is his first completely acoustic one. It was mostly improvised and recorded during the last week of the rainy month of April 2012, but some tracks are based on old steel-strings guitar improvisations that were recorded between 2009 and 2010 and were supposed to be used in his band Pura Sombar (until being forgotten, found again and overdubbed...)...

A second collaboration from Mystified and Saluki Regicide. This one differs from "Ancestral Technologies" (wh017) in a couple of ways. The theme explores the experience of a pilgrimage in some unnamed Eastern land. A solitary (western?) traveller mingles with the hustle and bustle of the pilgrimage route, but is ultimately alone and destined to come face-to-face with none other than himself. In this project, Saluki Regicide contributed loops and samples to Mystified, who mixed them...

The indomitable Mystified has teamed up with some artists of his acquaintance to assemble this mix of unusual ambient works, based around a series of samples generated by programs that convert fractal information into sound files. "The pieces originated from fractal midi. "High Sun" is a fractal piece converted to .wav with very little interpretation. The piece was created using the program "Gingerbread". The other pieces were derived from a fractal midi piece I created...

Mystified, ever experimenting and innovating, has created a collection of drone-ambient works derived entirely from trombone sounds. "For each of these 5 pieces I played a long note on the trombone, trying hard to get a good tone, and holding the note as long as I could. I then processed the notes. The software I used had a "randomize" feature, and I used that a lot for the processing. Each song you hear is a single note on a real trombone processed randomly, then re-composed in...

Finnish electronica artist Mika Björklund makes his debut on Webbed Hand with a long-form ambient composition inspired by other long-form albums on this label, such as the Rain series. This excellent track is both engaging and relaxing. About the recording: "As the name implies the music is night music.

From the artist: "For this concept album, the idea was to make new songwriting. All structures were influenced by rock and also by experimental techno and prepared improvisation (which i still don't really enjoy most of the time though). There's choruses, verses, bridges, introductions and endings. They don't appear in the order, all the times, but they are there. The vocals and the lyrics came after. All lyrics were inspired by the instrumental music. It's marvelous to treat human voice...

This mysterious combo makes its debut on Webbed Hand Records netlabel, after a couple of years on the CD-R circuit (not for profit, the proceeds were diverted to NORML). Deceptively straightforward on first listen, but deeper listening reveals unrivalled complexity and virtuosity, disguised as a 3-chord garage sound. And the lyrics too are not what they first seem.

mayfairgrin 's Spider & the Moon is a 31-minute composition which carries the listener on a textural tour through a varied soundscape. The strength of this work is the skillful use of processed acoustic instruments (djembe, bowed guitar, environmental sounds) woven into a richly illustrative tapestry that engages the mind without overstimulating it. Here sounds happen in washes and highlights, like some kind of impressionistic watercolor painting. It is simultaneously dark and uplifing....

Purr is a 76 minute ambient track intended to be played at low volume as background ambience, preferably as you go to sleep. It generates a warm and cozy feeling, like having a cat purring next to your head. With a high fidelity stereo system possessing good bass response, some of the infrasonic qualities will come through, thus adding to the trancey and hypnotic effect of the work. It is my feeling, based on some study of infrasound, that what one hears as a cat's purr is only part of the...
