[8 JAN 2012]
We've have been posting in our twitter drawings, made for our next release, for some time already – and we'll keep doing that (one-drawing-a-day) till the release date. Be sure not to miss 'em!
A track from our latest release was featured in «Stuart Maconie's Freakier Zone» radio-show on BBC Radio 6. Listen to the whole show here.
Our 17th release: “Shambala Shambala” by Samuel Uffus & Cage Cabarrett.
This electroacoustic improvisational jam session features two Portuguese experimental musicians and is dedicated to the Macaense people and their culture, being a mix of Chinese and Portuguese cultures.
[8 SEP] Our new release: live ambient improvisation “Wiatr” by Rudawoda and O. Lubencov.
In an industrial city in southern Ukraine, in the downtown, factory drains flow. People call them "Ruda woda" (The red river). RudaWoda is a symbol of the toxic polluted water, which gets into the drinking water supplies and makes people rusty from the inside…
[23 JUN] Our new release: “Celestial Funerals” by Gamardah Fungus.
The third long-play by “Gamardah Fungus” (Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine) is named after a common funerary practice in Tibet, wherein a human corpse is cut in specific locations and placed on a mountaintop, exposing it to birds of prey. The government of China prohibited the practice (which it considered barbaric) in the 1960s but started to allow it again in the 1980s. This practice is considered to be not only honorable but also the only acceptable by many Tibetans.
This album takes its origins in the admiration that Gamardah Fungus musicians feel for Tibetan spirit and traditions. Main theme from "Celestial Funerals" was performed by their friend and colleague Tenzin Sambu.
Genre borders have expanded since the duo's previous work. Besides the ambient atmosphere, brown noise and keyboards this record features the sounds of meditative drums, movie samples and self-made instruments, including waterphone and kalimba. In general, all the five tracks on this album can be described as a mixture of funeral doom and dark ambient.
[3 AUG] Our new release: “Two Hemispheres, Two Worlds” by Gamardah Fungus.
This is the second release by “Gamardah Fungus” duo from Dnipropetrovsk.
Two Hemispheres, Two Worlds – this seems to be the best characteristics of the album material: 5 tracks built on contrasts. A quiet twanging that occasionaly drowns in noise overload. And this time it contains not only traditional guitar solos and ambient landscapes, but also church hymns, mysterious voices from the other world and even a Turkish vocalise…
