CHRISTOPHER CERRONE - BEAUFORT SCALES The Beaufort Scale, devised in 1805 by Francis Beaufort, relates wind speed to observed conditions at sea or on land. It is a 13-part scale of increasing intensity. Experiencing wind is strongly subjective - 'one man's stiff breeze might be another's soft breeze' - which is why describing the conditions by sea or land conditions is helpful. For example: Beaufort 0 is described as 'sea like a mirror' and 'smoke rises vertically'. Beaufort 12 (the heaviest storm imaginable) as 'the air is filled with foam and spray; sea is completely white with driving spr ..read more

JAN JELINEK - SOCIAL ENGINEERING "Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you." A great idea always raises the question 'Why didn't anyone think of this before'? Everyone with an online existence has experienced the nauseating phenomenon of phishing mails, but it requires some kind of genius to turn it into art. Enter Jan Jelinek, who did exactly this. On Social Engineering, he used thirteen text fragments from phishing emails and transformed them using speech synthesis tools into spoken or sung texts. For this, he used the kind of speech synthesis that ..read more

ROBERT FARRUGIA - TILWIN Robert Farrugia is born on Malta. In the Maltese language, Tilwin means 'colouring'. With this album, Farrugia is 'colouring' some major event in his life in the second half of 2023, 'a period of lows and highs'. Only a few details are given: 'events as varied as a tragic incident endured by a loved one and their period of convalescence' (Long Wait), or 'the birth of a new family member on the Christmas day' (Post Christmas). For the rest, the music itself will have to tell the story - a different story for each listener. 'Each event described here is coloured in Rob ..read more

RICHARD CHARTIER - ON LEAVING Of course, Richard Chartier and Pinkcourtesyphone are the same person - but there is a distinct difference in the music released under these names. As Pinkcourtesyphone, Chartier presents a somewhat 'tongue-in-cheek' side of music, more emotional, with perhaps some slightly 'campy' themes. Or, as Chartier himself says: 'more musical'. But Pinkcouresyphone's output should be taken as seriously as the work released under his own name - which is a sound art more minimal, spatial, and abstract perhaps. With these two (almost simultaneously released) new albums the d ..read more

RL HUBER - MEMORIES OF FALLING I had never heard of RL Huber before until I heard this album, which - according to BandCamp - is his second album (in four months: Animam Edere was released in December 2023). That is, if you check his Bandcamp page as RL Huber - there's also a RyanHuber Bandcamp page which seems to be the same artist. The difference: the latter is heavily beat-oriented, while the 'RL' music is far more cinematic ambient. I'm afraid I can't tell you much more about his background, either, apart from that he is inspired by artists like Ryuichi Sakamoto, Max Richter, and Anna Th ..read more

ABUL MOGARD & RAFAEL ANTON IRISARRI - IMPOSSIBLY DISTANT, IMPOSSIBLY CLOSE A collaboration with two artists' names that immediately should raise attention: Abul Mogard (Guido Zen) and Rafael Anton Irisarri. Impossibly Distant, Impossibly Close is released on Black Knoll Editions (Irisarri is the owner of the Black Knoll Studio). A 2023 performance in Madrid inspired Mogard and Irisarri to work together, resulting in this album. The second track Waking Up Dizzy On A Bastion is a recording from that performance - it is easy to hear why this piece 'resonated deeply with the audience'. Place ..read more

ELIF YALVAÇ - VECTION Moving Furniture Records, the unstoppable and persistent Dutch label for electronic and experimental music, runs a sub-series named Eliane Tapes. Named, of course, after Éliane Radigue, whose work inspired many artists in the field of drone or minimal electronic music. Éliane herself gave her approval to the series, which is a quality trademark in itself. Elif Yalvaç's Vection is the seventh release in this series and is the first one released on CD (previous titles were released on cassette). Yalvaç holds an MA degree in Soic arts (from Istanbul Technical University ..read more

MICHEL BANABILA - THE UNREAL REALM A new album by one of my long-time favorite artists, Michel Banabila, is always a welcome surprise. And this one does not disappoint! Mostly, The Unreal Realm presents rather contemplative music - perhaps even dark at some moments. This is especially the case in the compositions that were commissioned for new choreographies by Yin Yue: three tracks for 'Somewhere' (which will be premiered in New York in June this year), and another two for 'Timeless Tide' (which premiered recently in Columbus, US). The music for these dance performances is hauntingly dynami ..read more
