Paul Minesweeper – «EX TENEBRIS»

Paul Minesweeper - «EX TENEBRIS»Cat.# … DNA 201
Release Date … 29.11.2017
Genre … Drone, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Another work from the Russian project Paul Minesweeper presents a mixture of several genres created without regard to the established traditions of the Russian ambient scene. It’s also a logical sequel for his release «Kingdom Of Grey». Opposing common calm sound natural for ambient works, this release is inspired by the slogan «A wall of sound right in the face». Being in a continuous metamorphosis of the timbre, drones meet logical melodic progressions with hard electronic bass preceding electric guitar and bass guitar, which echo and highlight the electronic component of the sound stream. Smoothly flowing from note to note, absolutely arrhythmic combinations of melodies ended up with the death march in the last composition made of noise and decay.

In fact, this work is an electronic ambient for metal music fans. As in the previous work, there is no place for strict fixing on a deep meaning or for propaganda of any ideas and beliefs. The author provides complete freedom for listener to explore himself since as he considers the individual perception and reflection as the greatest right and benefit for the listener. However, the general mood of the release is clear for everyone: sympathy for the darkness in each of us, immersion in nonexistence and self-decay.

The second episode in the «EX» series, «EX TENEBRIS» by Paul Minesweeper is intended to help listeners in diving into themselves keeping this time them on the light side. Unity with nature, reconciliation in the paternal home and abdication of the past mistakes on the way out of dark – all the things everyone will need sooner or later.

Arcane Waves – «Lab Of Errors»

Arcane Waves - «Lab Of Errors»Cat.# … DNA 198
Release Date … 02.10.2017
Genre … Experimental, Electronic, Noise, Drone, Dark Ambient, Industrial, Electroacoustic
Type … FLAC Lossless

In Lab of Errors, annex of the French University of Errors, we study the science of that which is superinduced upon metaphysics, whether within or beyond the latter’s limitations, extending as far beyond metaphysics as the latter extends beyond physics.

We will examine the laws governing exceptions of errors, and will explain mistakes of the universe supplementary to this one.

Lab of Errors does not, therefore, study the rules governing the general recurrence of a periodic mistake (the expected case) so much as study the games governing the special occurrence of a sporadic error (the excepted case).

Second volume of the Reaktor Sessions (first volume here), Lab of Errors is made with faulty virtual generators, and real synthesizers heavily modified by circuit-bending.

Recorded in September 2017 at Studio du Coin Cornu, Cœur de Beauce, France.
Photo-montage by Ironside (images public domain).
Sleeve design by Arcane Waves & Graph’Hypnotic.

Tracklisting:

  1. Arcane Waves – Special Occurrence Of A Sporadic Error – Part 1 (04:36)
  2. Arcane Waves – The Laws Governing Exceptions Of Errors (07:39)
  3. Arcane Waves – Special Occurrence Of A Sporadic Error – Part 2 (03:17)
  4. Arcane Waves – Explaining Mistakes Of The Universe (07:00)
  5. Arcane Waves – Superinduction Upon Limitations Of Physic (04:17)
  6. Arcane Waves – General Recurrence Of A Periodic Mistake (04:37)
  7. Arcane Waves – Expected Case versus Excepted Case (07:49)

System Morgue – «Forêt Noire»

System Morgue - «Forêt Noire»Cat.# … DNA 197
Release Date … 06.07.2017
Genre … Drone, Guitar Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

System Morgue takes you to the Forêt Noire full of phobias, forgotten dreams and imagery trapped deep in subliminal levels. Follow dense guitar drones, dissolve your emotions and thoughts in their vibrations, submerge in sleepy meditation.

Bunches of short mechanistic loops slowly pulsate behind stolid guitar chords, boost and mirror them, intensifying sonic pressure, spinning sound waves and locking them into spiral. Then pulsation become more frequent, anxiety grows and bursts with high-frequencey guitar yells and melody shreds cacophony in panicky rhythm. Short breather after panic attack, and sound pressure takes over again. Waves of guitar chords tighten distorted melodies in an uneven helix, sometimes ascending to hysterical crescendo, sometimes collapsing in melancholic alienation.

Tracklisting:

  1. System Morgue – Racines (09:39)
  2. System Morgue – Myrte (06:36)
  3. System Morgue – Forêt Noire (20:34)
  4. System Morgue – Sang (05:05)

Flangeri – «Joy Of Restriction»

Flangeri - «Joy Of Restriction»Cat.# … DNA 183
Release Date … 12.07.2016
Genre … Drone
Type … FLAC

In Flangeri’s new work «Joy Of Restriction» melancholic and meditative improvisations are embodied of vibrant drones that look like river waves bringing myriads of flecks to the shore where you sit. Like the river waves, these drones never hasten and slowly reach their climax before calming down in multiple resonances. Covertly appearing behind the resonances, even and simple melody easily develops from the echoes of colliding drones, getting drown in their pulsatings. Growing in strength, the melody flies over waves of drones of various tonality and length. Reaching the peak in the second half of the more than 35 minutes long piece, the melody – or a pack of endlessly repeated melodies’ fragments – slowly dissolves in drones’ rhythmed breathing, and as the drones start to fade, they let the melody to fade with them as well.

Tracklisting:

  1. Flangeri – Joy Of Restriction (35:42)
