SLP | “Shithole” SR078

Type: mp3 / TAPE ( limited edition in Fluoxetine/Prozac used box )
Location: Italy
Date: 2011
Tracks: 2
Duration: 0:22:00
Genre: Harsh Noise/Depression/Anxiety/Prozac/Meds/Richard Pryor
Section: Black

Free download

Tape comes in Fluoxetine ( also known by trade names Prozac and Sarafem among others, an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class ) box. Limited edition but boxes kept piling up as I keep feeling like shit and my anxiety and depression are getting worse. Now on Lamotrigine, so just tell me if you really feel like owning an empty Lamictal box is best for you. Collecting the boxes was fun at the time (2011, if you're lucky there also may be some Citalopram) but it doesn't feel so great anymore, as I have passed my 30s, accomplished nothing and feel awful all the time. Tapes are shitty used ones, you never know what I might have dubbed them over, could be Vasco Rossi, Marco Masini, Windsor for the Derby or some other romantic compilation Mister Drey might have made 15 years ago. Low quality, dirty low fi noise, with Richard Pryor samples from "The Wino and the Junkie" unfunny and depressing sketch.

"In these last three months came the idea of producing an "ambient" album, by using the technique which best suits me: sampling. The challenge would be in using sounds taken from various sources other than my own, in spending the least amount of time possible producing ( there are just 2 sound layers ), in using only samples from albums that I have here available in London ( the only exception being the orchestral closing which actually are some stams that had been in my hard drive for years ), and finally spending the smallest amount of time possible on the tracks themselves. At the beginning I thought of these as separate moments of an ideal soundtrack for and imaginary book or play. Then one day was raining and I just left my phone recording the sound of the rain pouring down and forgot all about it. I then decided to use that very field recording as background for the tracks which than became a single composition. Within it there are reverse sounds, scratched or reverbed or filtered through a wah-wah ( or anyway manipulated on the single track ). Each episode is thus the result of a plunderphonic manipulation process carried out on every single sample".

"In questi tre mesi l'idea di produrre un album di 'ambient music' utilizzando la tecnica che mi è più congeniale: il campionamento. La sfida consisteva in questo: nulla di prodotto da me, il minimo del lavoro in fase di produzione (ci sono al massimo due layer di suono), solo campioni da dischi che ho qui a Londra (ad eccezione della chiusa orchestrale, degli stems che avevo nel mio hard disk da anni), il minimo tempo impiegato sui singoli brani. Inizialmente li pensavo come movimenti separati di un'ideale colonna sonora per un libro o uno spettacolo teatrale. Poi un giorno pioveva, ho messo il mio cellulare a registrare il rumore della pioggia e me ne sono dimenticato. Così ho deciso di usare quel field recording come sfondo per i brani che sono diventati in tal modo un'unica composizione. Dentro ci sono suoni in reverse, o stretchati o riverberati o con wah-wah (o soggetti a mutazioni multiple sulla singola traccia). Ogni episodio è dunque il frutto di un lavoro di manipolazione plunderphonica eseguito su un singolo campione."

Recorded in Sasso Marconi, Bologna, at John Duncan's residence, “A Maze Sing Wave” is Z'EV's latest work, especially composed for Spettro records.

It's needless to say what an honor it is to host Z'EV on Spettro, an artist I so much admire and that has so strongly made Spettro Records' history. It was him who played for Spettro's opening concert back in 2010, and it his him who will continue forging its destiny and giving us strength.

Simone D'Annunzio | “s l o w” SR122

Duration: 01:00:00
Tracks: 5
Genre: ambient, abyss, a slow descent into the depths of sleep)))))))))))))))
Section: Ochre

Free download (mp3)

"s l o w" è un'unica armonia costruita dal rumore. Non è un disco, bensì un esperienza che proietta l’ascoltatore verso un solenne e lento viaggio nell’a b i s s o.
E’ il passaggio dal reale all’irreale, è un otto sdraiato che diventa infinito.
Manipolare i drammi in direzioni allegre.

"S L O W" is a unique harmony built around noise. It's not an album, but an experience bringing the listener towards a slow and solemn journey into the A B Y S S.
It is the passage from the real to the unreal, it is a lying 8 becoming the infinite.
Manipulating tragedy into joyful directions.

Kokkala | “Antifantasioviosi” SR117

Type: Tape + Digital copy on Bandcamp
Location: Greece
Date: 2015
Track: 9
Genre: noise/ambient/experimental - "a travesty of audio pop culture aesthetics"
Section: red
Price: 4 euros
Free download

Tape + Shipping

Antifantasioviosi (a merge of the words fantasy and antibiotics)
is a rock opera of insufficiency, a Modus ponens of anarchic composition, true punk attitude and insignificant intentions.

Playing with the banality of a pop rock "hit" and the idea of creating art in order to be absorbed, praised, welcome, bought,
'Liked' in general,
deforming it's structure, replacing guitar solos with commercial cultural elements,
vocals with wind burns, heart warming catchy lyrics with field recordings of situations, melody with absurdness,
using arythmic drum sequences, keyboards played with feet while breaking eggs, recording sessions
disrupted by friends calling via mobile phones and poetic titles, the "against" now "becomes".

A travesty of audio pop culture aesthetics -a travesty as an entity, a beautiful unruly rich alive, playful entity who doesn't

All recordings took place July and August 2014 in Thessaloniki and mountain Olympus Greece.

Live @ CSA Next Emerson

"Started up as a jazzcore trio, passed through the mix of psychedelic and electric free jazz of their second EP, Sonic Birds, nowadays the group Umanzuki flash everyone and with their new album, "Tropical nature of Tiaso", They definitely dissolve their last rock sound in a long sparkling improvisation made of delicate electronic variation, languid and liquid sounds, reduced synthetic rhythms and far memories, for a record that sounds like a tropical island where suddenly sank a very deep dark.
Already at work on a new LP, coming out next year, Umanzuki listen and absorb in a omnivorous way and they are the young, adventurous and credible band that we expected." ( from Lemming Records )
