Pet The Tiger / Brian Lucas - Gaze Emanations

Image
Sounds emanating from artwork is a frontier left for creative interpretation and skilled means of channeling. The artists who make up the project Pet The Tiger are the select crew you would want on this en devour. Surely Brian Lucas, the artists who created all of these drawings, felt at ease when the creation of this "soundtrack" was discussed.

Gaze Emanations has no boundaries, but this does not mean these sonic craftings are scattered or chaotic. Looking at the artwork created by Brian Lucas, there is a format and method that bonds all of the drawings together. The project Pet The Tiger was thoughtful with each selection. With eight musicians working together to portray in sound one artist's renderings, there is a sense of concise appreciation for the entire process. Of the group, three artists are highly adept at creating there own instruments. Two musicians specializing in percussion, one with saxophones, one with trumpet and electronics and the last with the incred…

Coims - The Realisation That Someone Has Been Stood Behind You Your Entire Life

Image
Scattered rhythms, like a bag of bearings splitting open above an old wooden floor. The downward spray producing one note drops by the feet, skittering sounds falling into cracks and recesses, loud bounces with unimaginable directions and unexplained sounds of complete disintegration as the impact occurs. The Realisation That Someone Has Been Stood Behind You Your Entire Life is like that broken pouch. Everything nestled together in perfect order, like water molecules stacking to make a lake or sea. Then a tear, or the fear of noticing someone behind you, this new spontaneous moment causing a rush of minor chaos. Sounds spilling forth, what once were controlled rhythm and harmony, now separated from the compositions they once were.

Coims holds an aural divining rod, continually droning with slight variations as new veins of sounds are discovered. The first track "Londos versus Londos" is a very good example of this, with mesmerizing tones until the final note. "Elon Job…

African Ghost Valley - AAM

Image
The silhouette of a shaman shaking a medicinal rattle, bass and drums vibrate with each footstep in the spiritual dance. Celestial sounds of a star filled sky enveloping the fireside ritual. Wind chimes hanging on huts stir as a breeze blows through the strands of digital notes. Where is this place? An anomaly of existence, both tribal and advanced technology pushing against each other, coalescing in the deep thoughts we all hold. The world is an amplifier for noise playing to the metronome of time. From molten flow deep within to meteorites pinging off the mesosphere, AAM explores all reaches of these sounds with mysterious felicity.

African Ghost Valley circles the earth, rarely landing with a label more than once. With around twenty five release in five years, on as many labels, this duo from Canada and Europe explores the core of sonic densities. AAM follows suite with this short and forceful upheaval of drone, harmony and other worldly noise. The first side holds three of the fiv…

Oxherding - Unfolded Along The River

Image
Everything existing in an undisturbed state. Energy moving with silent and unseen power beneath the outward stratum. This process has endured longer than what makes sense to rationalize. With lives only reaching one hundred years, tens of thousands of years is an incomprehensible length. And in this duration, the ever present aural current drones on with the most sublime characteristics. A sonic heritage reaching back to the fabric of creation. Then, the slightest disturbance occurs, a graceful drop of rain, the most gentle breeze, a ray of sun emanating through crisp blue sky. "Unfolded Along The River" captures and shares this moment with us. The softest flurry above the flow, a brief euphoria of discernible beauty.

Oxherding has crossed paths with Lost in a Sea of Sound four times. Each composition is an extension of the last, all connecting in a spiritual surge of increasing vibrations. The first release described on LIASOS is titled "The Past Is Gone and The Future…

Jacken Elswyth / Ryan Eyers - Betwixt & Between 6

Image
Jacken Elswyth brings us the sixth installment from Betwixt & Between Tapes with the now standard split between two artists. Actually number six has three artists, Jacken Elswyth on the first side and Ryan Eyers on the flip, Mark Stevenson sings while drone plays on the haunting song titled "The Caravan" making three contributions to this recording.

Beautiful renditions and beguiling sublime improvisations or beguiling sublime renditions and beautiful improvisations, the arrangement of these adjectives works for everything Jacken does. Betwixt & Between 6 opens with "Lone Prairie" and then falls into the magical drone of "The Caravan". The first piece embodying vibrancy and technique from a century of banjo playing, but  Jacken still adding unique grandeur. Near the end, the strings quietly conclude leaving the drone of a hurdy-gurdy that transitions into Mark Stevenson's "The Caravan". This majestically sung song tells the story of …

Adderall Canyonly - Sadnessorzzz11one

Image
Strong synthesizer currents producing smoothed out grooves, your thoughts will flow like mercury. Listen to the sites along this journey, hear the rumblings of a haunted house, tributes to the remains of a closed family business, a grove of pines trees with rows flickering as we speed along, the Frank Lloyd Wright home nestled in the hill side. Sadnessorzzz11one fuses this landscape together. Along the way, sonic radiance from both the sun and moon, shadows cast in both day and night. Stereo sounds stretched like taffy then balled up and consumed. Mysterious voices whispering nothing and everything. And the nostalgia, notes like sporadic photos appearing from our youth, casting us back into vintage synth. As these images dissolve, future sounds grabbing shirt hems to pull us forward.

Sadnessorzzz11one is a collage of many melodic vignettes. An hour of sounds divided on two sides of a cassette. Adderall Canyonly is very astute with how everything goes together. These recordings were ma…
