Wolfgang Tillmans releases 35-minute exhibition soundwork

'Hamburg Süd / Nee IYaow eow eow' has been released Novemebr 17th alongside booklet of photographs

 

"You’re probably very familiar with the photographic work of German artist Wolfgang Tillmans. Earlier this year, the Tate Modern held a vast exhibition of the photographer’s work and in the year 2000, he was the first photographer and first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize. You may not, however, be as familiar with his music or sound design displayed in a recently released record by the artist following his exhibition, There was 30 years between 1943 and 1973, 30 years from 1973 was the year 2003, at The Kunstverein in Hamburg.


The exhibition consisted of a 35-minute sound installation which took the exhibition’s inner-city context as its starting point. Operating in conjunction with several photographic and video works, the installation transformed the gallery space into a “single cinematic whole”.


Now that the exhibition is over, The Kunstverein has released the 35-minute sound work Hamburg Süd / Nee IYaow eow eow as a CD via Tillman's own label Fragile Records, accompanied by a booklet featuring exhibition views and short snippets of text all designed by Wolfgang.

rRoxymore delivers new EP for Don't Be Afraid

'Thoughts Of An Introvert Pt. 1' is the artists second release on the Bristol-based label!

 

"rRoxymore's music sounds like it's from another dimension. She transmits alien frequencies and melodies to make your shoulders wiggle over tough and sassy drums that are in line with her UK-based techno peers. Her knack for strange and dizzying melodies shone through on 'Organ Smith', her first EP for Don't Be Afraid.


'Thoughts Of An Introvert Pt. 1', her follow-up on the Bristol-based label, is a continuation of the swirly-eyed sonics that made Organ Smith so infectious. […]" (words: Aurora Mitchell on Resident Advisor)

 

'Thoughts Of An Introvert Pt. 2' will be out spring 2018 via DBA!

YEK EP to be released November 3rd via Nonplace

 

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi und Burnt Friedman have channeled their sublime creative synergy into a new EP.

 

What Mortazavi and Friedman have in common is their shared expertise in uneven, cyclical rhythms - the foundation of their trance-like art music, which is both subtle and ecstatic.

 

Through repetition and improvisation in the studio they create 'numbers' - groove-based pieces played on a variety of drums (Mortazavi mainly plays the Tombak) mixed with electronics. Natural, i.e. given, motion patterns provide the musical backbone. This results in a precisely timed harmony between the electronic sounds and live grooves.


Thanks to the extreme acoustic range of the Tombak and his extravagant technique, Mortazavi merges perfectly with Burnt Friedman’s signature sound and repertoire, which seems to belong to no specific place or time.


Mohammad Reza Mortazavi and Burnt Friedman both live and work in Berlin and are preparing for a live tour in 2018.

Aris Kindt drop second album!

Ambient shoegaze duo Aris Kindt launch the new Kingdoms imprint with their new album, 'Swann and Odette'.

Aris Kindt is the collaborative project of Gabe Hedrick and Francis Harris (Scissor and Thread).

Picking up where their first record (2015’s 'Floods') leaves off, Swann and Odette is an evolutionary leap forward for the duo. The sonic palette is deeper, the grooves more sparse and the melodies are given more room to seep deep within a mix so expansive it feels almost tactile.

out now: 'Propaganda' by Oliver Huntemann

The Hamburg-based producer just released his 5th artist album on his own Senso Sounds

Now with over 20 years of releases behind him, Oliver Huntemann finds himself on the cusp of yet a new era in his career.

 

'Propaganda' is the fifth proper artist album from the Hamburg-based DJ/producer, and like each of its predecessors, it shows a different side to one of the most consistently rewarding names in techno. Released on his own Senso Sounds label, the album exudes the level of assurance that perhaps only comes with being so active in curating and developing a label that has stood out from the masses since its inception in 2014.

 

Released October 13th on Senso Sounds
