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.

Sleeve design by Arcane Waves & Graph’Hypnotic.

Cédric Elisabeth – «Parallel»

Cédric Elisabeth - «Parallel»Cat.# … DNA 190
Release Date … 13.03.2017
Genre … Ambient, Soundscape, Experimental
Type … FLAC Lossless

«With the same illusion [as Timeless], Parallel is more refined. It sends you to another world with divers mood. You get also more images on your mind and can create your own.»
— Cédric Elisabeth

Refined is not the only word to define the work. Smooth, relaxing, melahcholic, light, deep, transparent, natural, perfect, fluent, subtle, elegant – dozens of words are here to decribe emotions when «Sans Titre» changes «Excellence» or when «Grandiosa» quietly comes to its piercing, fluttering apogee and makes way to calm and contemplative «Mute». If you liked «Timeless», you will fall in love with «Parallel». Just switch it on…

Artwork by Frederic Dilé.
Mastered by Troels B-Knudsen.

  1. Cédric Elisabeth – Excellence (04:50)
  2. Cédric Elisabeth – Sans Titre (07:06)
  3. Cédric Elisabeth – Revision (06:23)

Cédric Elisabeth – «Timeless»

Cédric Elisabeth - «Timeless»Cat.# … DNA 179
Release Date … 08.02.2016
Genre … Ambient, Soundscape, Experimental
Type … FLAC Lossless

Variable melodies suddenly appear from nowhere and pierce supple soundscapes and noise layers. Later they slowly dissolve in the soundscapes to give birth to new consonances… Sonic illusions, deceptive images behind tangibly embossed human voices and vibrating strings tones. Awakening out of time, waiting and sound detection in the space around. Slow discovering nearest places, perception persistence accumulation, gradual incapsulation in own consciousness, fading activities, introspection, falling asleep…

This four-track work is fully builded on various combinations of sounds, noises, drones, melodies and spirits. It provokes associations, it consists of associations, it draws sonic pictures and impels listener to paint them with colors depending on his imagination.

Cover by Adam Ryde.

  1. Cédric Elisabeth – Gravity (08:12)
  2. Cédric Elisabeth – Horizon (11:13)
  3. Cédric Elisabeth – Sound Of Paris (06:08)

Anatoly Khvostishko - «berdetovka»Cat.# … DNA 177
Release Date … 27.10.2015
Genre … Experimental, Drone Ambient

Tremendous soundscapes hide between folds of subconsciousness. See through closed eyes in the dark vast depths. Do you wonder whose slack breathing you hear?

Knocks, cracklings, noises. Vibrations, pulses, sound scraps. Find yourself locked in small dark room with something strange stirring behind the door and a second later, soar over clouds of low-frequency drones endeavouring to discern what does lay beneath. And what the first word appeared in your mind on the edge of awakening?

berdetovka, one word for three prolonged dreams’ soundtracks. Put your headphones on and wander the track of your fantasy.
