[45E021-2013] Jack Hertz – Supermoon

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013


Artist: Jack Hertz
Album: Supermoon
Label / Date: 45 Echoes Sounds || 2013
Style: Ambient, Space Ambient, Dark Ambient
Time / Format: 59:54 || Lossless (FLAC); MP3 320 kbps, VBR MP3


A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term “supermoon” is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology.[1] The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.

The music on this album was composed during the Supermoon on June 22-23, 2013, as the closest and largest full moon of the year and the Moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The music was created on the following equipment: Korg M3, Nord G2, Yamaha TG33 and Lexicon Effects.

Jack Hertz works with real and artificial sounds to create intangible techno-organic impressions between music and noise. Jack has worked with many artists over the 30 years he has been playing. He has released more than 35 albums on netlabels around the world and receives regular air play on many radio stations. More information can be found at

[pyr073] cátodo dúo – al tiro

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

based in chile, the cátodo dúo consists of amanda irarrázabal on double bass and ramiro molina on electric guitar. they began playing together in 2012 as a way of sharing their experiences in the field of the improvised music. built around a string concept, the duo easily moves from intense rhythmic situations to dense layers of noise. the music is totally improvised and their sound arises from treating instruments as sources of sound in every sense of the word using prepared instruments and avoiding conventional playing.

al tiro, their first album for pan y rosas discos, documents their first public performance. the sound is: chime snake swirl. metal scratch skree. quiet long note bends. physical percussion. staccato footstep notes. process vibrato. glass string flow. reverse polarities, cross streams. pierce pulse. low drone feedback string punch. objects falling down hills. black lodge bass descension glissando treble string ambiance.

[pyr074] andrea pensado – teraz, tak!

Thursday, August 8th, 2013


andrea pensado works with sound as a performer, composer and teacher. she has been using digital media and live interactive musical systems since 1995. she studied in argentina and poland. at first she composed mainly for acoustic instruments, however, she gradually felt more attracted by different sound realms. today, the abrasive digital noise of her improvisations is far away from her earlier pieces. harsh dense layers of sounds, often interwoven with her voice, combine hybrid synthesis and sampling techniques to create a highly personal sound language, which reflects an intuitive, emotional and paradoxically also logical approach to music making. she currently lives in the united states.

teraz, tak!, her first album for pan y rosas, begins with a solo performance by andrea and is followed by a series of duets between andrea and the musicians: walter wright, davindar singh, adriana de los santos and alexei borisov who provide additional electronics, saxophone, piano and guitar respectively.
