Brian Harnetty - Shawnee, Ohio

Brian Harnetty - Shawnee, Ohio

CD in digipak DVD-size, 20-p. booklet “Shawnee, Ohio”, the first album by sonic ethnographer BRIAN HARNETTY on Karl, is an intriguing blend of archive recordings of interviews with residents of that small town and melancholic chamber-folk, performed by his ensemble which features a.o. ANNA ROBERTS-GEVALT (ANNA AND ELIZABETH) and PAUL DE JONG (THE BOOKS). BRIAN HARNETTY (b. 1973) is an interdisciplinary artist working between music composition, sound, and socially engaged art. Rooted in sound archives and the communities connected to them, his body of work contends that the simple act of listening –– to people, places, and their pasts –– can transform our futures. Both a 2018 A Blade of Grass Fellow for Contemplative Practice and a recipient of the 2016 Creative Capital Performing Arts Award, HARNETTY is deeply involved with local issues of Appalachia and the Midwest. He connects sound archives with performance, ecology, and place - an approach for which he was labelled a “sonic e...

Italian sound artist GIULIO ALDINUCCI drops his 2nd album on Karl: “Disappearing In A Mirror” is again a truly masterfully composed and sound-designed ambient masterpiece and a more than worthy follow-up to the critically acclaimed “Borders And Ruins” which made it onto several year’s best lists for 2017. Over the course of four solo albums on labels like DRONARIVM plus EPs and collaborative albums (a.o. with IAN HAWGOOD), GIULIO ALDINUCCI successively has been refining his skills as composer and sound designer.

Arovane & Porya Hatami - Organism_Evoltion (2CD)

Arovane & Porya Hatami - Organism_Evolti...

On “Organism_evolution”, the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed “Organism”, AROVANE and PORYA HATAMI add elements of musique concrète and electro acoustic music to their experimental, field recording-based ambient sounds. Since his return from a 9 year long hibernation in 2013, the Berlin based electronic artist UWE ZAHN alias AROVANE has been more productive than ever and released a dozen of solo and collaborative albums. PORYA HATAMI, one of the main protagonists of the vivid Iranian electronic underground, released several albums on labels like HIBERNATE and introduced himself as a skilled experimental sound artist exploring the balance between electronics and environmental sounds. “Organism_evolution”, as the title points out, develops further the aesthetics of “Organism” where the duo crafted sophisticated ambient music of timeless beauty. Their new album reveals influences of musique concrète and electro acoustic music that place the tracks in a more experimental fi...

Prince Charming – Lapis Lazuli

Prince Charming – Lapis Lazuli

 Quirky, extravagant, exotic: brandnew album by former Wordsound artist PRINCE CHARMING. After the seminal dub / illbient records „Psychotropical Heatwave“ and „Fantastic Voyage“ on the cult label WordSound PRINCE CHARMING returns with a direct hit. On „LAPIS LAZULI“ the sound alchemist interweaves strands of his wide spread musical universe into an atmospherical tight album. Illbient – PRINCE CHARMING has been rejecting this categorization since the start of his work -  as genre is too small for such a vast experience. „LAPIS LAZULI“ takes the listener on a quirky extravaganza through space and time; dub, exotica, ragtime, breakbeat, oriental, cinematic soundtrack, blues, classical, latin, psychedelic, afro-jazz, field recordings and science fiction are just a few of his numerous and diverse influences reworked and melted elegantly into coherent tracks titled „Zebrine Polymorphous Blues“, „Spider Scorpian Conch“,  „Pomegranate of Vice (a Supergeometry Symphony)“ or „Uv...

Philippe Petit – Off To Titan

Philippe Petit – Off To Titan

“Post-Classical” soundtrack for fans of Gustav Mahler – Philip Jeck – Bernhard Herrmann – Luis & Bebe Barron’s “Forbidden Planet” – Kumo … In a previous century Gustav Mahler  – whose 150th anniversary on july 7th is being celebrated this year – composed a symphony named “Titan”. Created in search of a work that echoed industrialism and society in the nineteenth century. Philippe Petit believed that even if firmly rooted into Classical it was announcing what Contemporary music would become so it sounded natural to recontextualize, add new flavours by having something constantly modern in there. Philippe began work on a recording of the original symphony – re-editing, time-stretching, distorting, filtering. He then sent the result to Jono Podmore aka KUMO as a backing track who began work with his theremin and electronics by identifying areas he could enhance or develop or even alienate further from their original form, and then set to work improvising and layering new materia...

Cezary Gapik -  The Sum Of Disappearing Sounds

Cezary Gapik - The Sum Of Disappearing ...

Kolejna postać polskiej sceny muzycznej, która pojawia się w wydanictwie zachodnim. Tym razem Karlrecords prezentuje ambientowo-dronowy album Cezarego Gapika ? punkowego weterana i producenta muzyki drone/dark ambient. Świeża recenzja od The Wire: ?Abstract Depressionism? is how Polish musician Cezary Gapik pegs his own aesthetic, which is mostly an apt description. The blessed out vapour trail of his ?Uncertainty [#0522]? is a considerable detour from miserabilism, adopting much more of an angelic feel with the same stratospheric arcs of sinewy digital smear heard throughout Kompakt?s seminal Pop Ambient series. Here, snow-blindingly bright tones stream alongside tidal washes of white noise and a tumbling filigree of airborne sonic dust. The other three lengthy tracks intensify and darken the album through accretions of resonant metallic timbres slowly revolving from harmonic overtones to rasping dissonance, leading to the ominous electronic pall of ?Still, No Beginning, And ? Witho...

afarOne - Lucen

afarOne to Stefano Ruggeri, pianista i kompozytor. Jego album "Lucen" został zaklasyfikowany jako noeklasyczny ambient, ale jak to często bywa, trudno jednoznacznie zaszufladkować tę muzykę.  Wyobraź sobie małe pianino, jeszcze mniejsze perkusje okraszone rozciągniętymi dronami i rozpuszczone dźwiękowej plamie, a potem podane w klimacie filmowej estetyki. Taka jest ta płyta. Piękna muzyka między Aphex Twinem a Nilsem Frahmem.

Fanu & Bill Laswell - Lodge

Fanu & Bill Laswell - Lodge

Trochę wolniejsze połamańce od speców gatunku - Bill Laswell kontra Fanu (Janne Hatula) z mięsistym basem i metaliczną acz jazzową perkusją.Amidst a media landscape which rarely flexes more than its eyebrow muscles unless there is a clearly, easily and widely marketable story, scene or scandal attached to a record, an album like  this one must seem something like an alien spaceship in the middle of Times Square: It doesn't have a rigid concept, it doesn't sell a message, it follows no trends, delivers no hypes and promises no instant revelations. Some Drum n Bass critics will find it too little Drum n Bass. Dub and Dubstep audiences will think it too much Drum n Bass. Jazz listeners will probably refuse to even listen to it. And yet all of this explains why „Lodge“ could end up victorious nonetheless. Bewildering and beguiling at the same time, it bridges the differences between several genres, arriving at a beligerent release of the pure will to create.It is also proof to a theor...
