Cedric Piromalli & Mitsuaki Matsumoto – A-Plastification LP [rwl003] (February 7, 2005)
First with words : "a" as a privative affix or as an indefinite article ; next with sounds (from crystal-clear to dull, between harmony and dissonance, from repetitive concrete music to jazz).
This original duet (a franco-italian contemporary jazz pianist at the prepared piano and a japanese sound designer at the electroacoustic device) implicitly asks the eternal question raised by electronic or computerised music : plastic surgery that freezes and dehumanizes or transcendance that elevates music to its organic dimension ?
No answer given (no question asked even) albeit in the music itself, in the comings and goings between mechanical and digital, between percussive sounds and melodic phrases, between explosions and repetitions, in the climaxes and collapses, in the outbursts and the breaking offs, in this perpetual vibration close to quivering. Here, the sound, raw material of music, is soaring even in the silences.

Urla Makabra – Apple Racer (ca152) (July 8, 2008)
URLA MAKABRA Avantground Undergrind Noise Orchestra is a group of experimentalists from Minsk, Belarus, formed in 2006. The initiator and mastermind it’s concept is Aleksandr Haletsky (aka Chornaya Kapusta), composer and multiinstrumentalist.
Chornaya Kapusta considers music to represent superhuman logic, and be capable to transform space and time. One of its main attributes is freedom, that’s why, when delivering a complex artistic concept, it doesn’t have to base itself upon commonly accepted principles, rules and standards: “Even noise can make a valid musical piece, if it’s meaningful enough. If it’s not meaningful, then it’s just good for nothing”.
When the band was joined by the flagman of Belarusian electronic underground Timur Bernshtein (aka Lla), leader of the famous SIMPTOM POGREMUSHKI (Rattle Symptom) and Ivan Klyuev (aka Mr Nashwelle, Ian Kaputski), an experimental multiinstrumentalist from Saint-Petersburg, the sound of URLA MAKABRA became more dense and hard. The “Post-Nuclear Dream of Lieutenant Galievsky” EP (2008) marks the departure from minimalist concept – a sticky stringy dream of a nuclear war lieutenant is filled with indistinct voices of children and inescapable feel of ever-recurrent end.
New album – “Apple Racer” (live session 2008) – represents the tradition of Throbbing Gristle, John Cage and Miles Davis, mixed with apple scent and metallic chip scrap. “We’ve done a god job vacuum-cleaning on ‘Apple Racer’ – says Lla, – after hearing it there’s much less dust left, and the air is fresher and cleaner”. “Apple Racer” is a surprise, a catharsis of its kind for our listeners – says Mr Nashwelle, – but one should not expect any compromises from us. This record is like black-and-white Japanese cartoons, where a man, who finds himself captured by Evil, has nothing else left to do but conquer it”. “’Apple racer’ is a Pandora’s box of sorts – says Chornaya Kapusta, – Something constantly keeps coming out of it. This album reminds me of drawings by ancient shamen, which somehow manage to contain everything in the world”.
