about

On DURANZIE, we are confronted with a heterogeneous handful of sound fantasms. More like trajectories around some attractor than anything like arranged concrete events, this sound maps out its own constraints, like a cartographer of its own circuitry. These are autonomous pieces which purely refer to their own conditions of existence. On the first half of the album, these self-contained pieces are presented in sequence - each piece navigating some kind of local extremum, a little island of stability in some kind of terrible storm. Sometimes this results in bubbling, elementary waves, other times the result is like scanning through a minefield of interference, immersed in a cold hiss or ripped open by mechanical chirping. On the second half of the album, the converse approach results in a lone colossus patiently thawing, a pure tone crystal slowly breaking apart, forming tiny capillaries, trapped tensions finally circulating and slowly transforming itself into a whole different state.

JANO DOE uses homebuilt electronics to create sounds exploring limits of our auditory perception, incorporating extreme frequencies, volumes and sound event timescales, frequently crossing the barrier to physical sound perception. This sound is defined by inversions, creating the notion that the instrument is controlling the instrumentalist and where the formally sonorous becomes a representation of electrical, physical phenomena even before it is sound. Using intuitively conceived module arrangements, chaotic systems with fragile equilibria occur, always sweeping closer to the catastrophe point.

about

METEORISMO Prague, Czech Republic

METEORISMO is Prague based Czech-Finnish microlabel, focused on eclectic and strange music. Founded as a solution for releasing second album of Federsel & Mäkelä and since then continuing in dealing with similar style of acoustic adventures.
We like weird music and sounds, lo-fi experiments, home made avantgarde, outsider music, freak out and all kinds of music which is does not fit anywhere.
