“L’esprit de l’homme qui rêve se satisfait pleinement de ce qui lui arrive. L’angoissante question de la possibilité ne se pose plus.
Il faut prendre beaucoup sur soi pour vouloir s’établir dans ces régions reculées où tout a d’abord l’air de se passer si mal, à plus forte raison pour vouloir y conduire quelqu’un. Encore n’est-on jamais sur d’y être tout à fait. Tant qu’ à se déplaire, on est aussi bien disposé à s’arrêter ailleurs.Toujours est-il qu’une flèche indique maintenant la direction de ces pays et que l’atteinte du but véritable ne dépend plus que de l’endurance du voyageur.
L’épouvantail de la mort, les cafés chantants de l’au-delà, le naufrage de la plus belle raison dans le sommeil, l’écrasant rideau de l’avenir, les tours de Babel, les miroirs d’inconsistance, l’infranchissable mur d’argent éclabousse de cervelle, ces images trop saisissantes de la catastrophe humaine ne sont peut-être que des images.”
A live recording improvisation, produced by ayankoko, october 2007
Ayankoko aka David Vilayleck
Ayankoko is my solo project in which i can develop all kinds of tensions, forms or sounds in music regarding to my background influences as an improvisator.
I first used guitar fx and loop sampler with cd player to a tape recorder, then i went on electronic devices and software such as ableton or logic. No matter what i use, the main thing is to create sound, enjoy it and share it loud.
I feel very fortunate to have released on various netlabels such as hazardrecords (bcn, esp), dog-eared recs (mexico), amp-recs (mexico), headphonica (leipzig, ger), colin johnco (paris, fr) and now clinical archives, making a great and wonderful noise connection/collaboration through out the world.
Dick Drone returns with his second EP, through IF? Records and again made in Japan, fusing together elements of hip-hop, kabuki, filmic washes, tech, minimalism, and the occasionally intentionally rough/lo-fi edge.
It’s now exclusively up on Addictech and available to digitally download, so check out these tracks first to see if you’re into the beastie:
Vadz’ first release on Russian-Techno.Com is a 4-tracker with some tasty things and wicked stuff from the archives. Every single track is different, but the whole thing is for sure – Secret Weapon opens fire!!!. Are you ready for some smelt?
Release features: 1) Swedish Electrotom’s ‘Color Climax’ erotic theme, juiced and squeezed into a kind of electic-bolt-style dancefloor-frendly techno tune; 2) An electro-greeting from Ural Mountains – Chelyabinsk-based guy calling himself Mal turned a good old ‘Spider Man‘ track into a pure mental weirdness; 3) Holland’s ‘Underground Liberation’ pride – DJ Ritzi Lee’s heavy-weight track ‘Crushed & Twisted’ – really turned into a massive mechanical stomper under Vadim’s hands; 4) South Russia live electronic duo Rabitza’s warm-and-floating version of ‘Punktire‘ track – ah, a perfect robot chill-out style!

«Rhythms that bleed. Rhythms that rust and fall apart. Rhythms that fracture your perception of time. D’incise’s decompositional approach is charged with an electricity that turns actual objects into distorted images. At times, you will find your neck’s vertebrae moving back and forth to keep a time only existant in your mind. In the collaborative nature of “Les Restes du Festin”, we can hear micro-cuts from various improvised music recordings of Johann Bourquenez (piano), Christian Graf (guitare), Christophe Berthet (saxophones), Gaël Riondel (saxophones), Cyril Bondi (drums) and d’incise (piano and percusions). In addition, we can hear the talented intervention of Lena, Bluermutt, Hopen, Ibakusha, and Monsieur Connard.
Here, electronic thoughts are translated into numerous acoustic dances to the point of loosing distinction. Dancing thoughts of electronic motion. A grand piano that stands up as anthropomorphic figure to interact and dialogue with the player. Frequencies that tickle the tympanic membrane in order to descend through the eustachian tube reverberating eternally. Binary codes that materialize into percussive instruments; number ones as drumsticks, and zeros as bass drums.
Dusty pieces of metal falling through a waterfall of sound waves until they reach the depths of an ocean of noise. Water ripples become multicolored threads that float around a beam of light. Mercury plugs that melt when plugged into amplifiers. Unidentified Flying Objects that become cymbals and give a message about phenomenal spaces. Static hairs follicles that abandon the skin to encounter the vibrations coming from the speakers. These are some of the visions I receive when listening to this sonic constructions. Micro-cuts from a macro-musician.» – Sebastian Alvarez
Jeremy Bible and Jason Henry are two productive artists based in Canton, Ohio, an area of the United States referred to as ‘the rust belt’ due to its rapid industrial decline. Similar to their surroundings which contrast rural farmland against decaying industrial landscapes, the duo contrast various sounds and styles in ways that can be compared to the elegant and subtle color contrasts created by painters of fine abstract-expressionist art. Utilizing field recordings, found sounds, acoustic instrumentation and electronic soundscapes, their compositions take place in the wide field of musique concrete, experimental acoustic music, and electronic sound design.
“glare” is a huge piece of modern contemporary music. 5 tracks, about 60 minutes duration.
From the first track, you can almost grab the intense and exciting spirit, being inherent in these pieces. Dark and gloomy melodies meet abstract glitches, lost radio frequencies, mysterious field recordings and other interferences. With all these ingredients, Jeremy and Jason create warm, nostalgic, and at times frightening scenery.
It smells like old basements, dusty treasure chests, old physical instruments and yellowed pictures from your grandmother’s photo album.
The duo’s growing catalog of “sound paintings”, each creating a new experience, will see release through a growing list of labels including Resting Bell, Gruenrekorder, Abgurd, Gears of Sand, and their own imprint, Experimedia.
