Adam Bohman, Jonathan Bohman & Richard Thomas.
Collected from a mixture of studio and live recording, this suite of perfectly planned mischief slips and slides between the physical and metaphysical, pathos and alien-abstraction, wry humour and obscenity – relishing in awkward dualities and eccentric imbalances. Tuneful ditties emerge before switching frame to an aural car crash. Shared refrains and in-jokes from live shows are unveiled, then jump gear to a Morricone-soundtracked car-chase. Listen close, arrange the junk and unpack the mystery. https://www.cafeoto.co.uk/shop/secluded-bronte-the-horns-of-andromeda/
Adam Asnan (1983, UK) is an electroacoustic musician and location sound recordist, based between London and Berlin. His work promotes the aesthetic potential of sound-capture, amplification, auditory ‘imaging’ and the virtues of both acoustic and synthetic spatialisation. Most recently concerned with ideas of ‘phonogeny’ (as a parallel to photogeny) in sound recording and tonal works for instrumentalising reverb.
His compositions, live performances and collaborative projects have been presented across Europe, and has numerous recordings published in all formats.
Adam is one third of VA AA LR with Vasco Alves and Louie Rice. https://soundcloud.com/adam-asnan
“Dissonant chordal pluckings on a guitar, long tones on a clarinet and saxophone, a careful high voice creeping through it, bells and close-up noises of objects being shifted, pushed and scraped. Is it arranged? Is it made up on the spot? It’s almost all coming from Ashley Paul, a Brooklyn musician who sometimes sounds influenced by improvisers like Derek Bailey or Keith Rowe, and sometimes sounds as if she’s got nothing to do with any tradition at all — rather, a songwriter with a diaristic, private and flexible sense of what a song is.” – New York Time https://ashleypaul.bandcamp.com/album/ray
Stefano Pilia is a guitar player and electro-acoustic composer. His work has become progressively concerned with researching the sculptural properties of sound as well as sound’s relationship with space, memory and the suspension of time. Pilia explores these points of focus through instrumental practice and investigations into the recording and production process. https://stefanopilia.bandcamp.com/album/in-girum-imus-nocte-et-consumimur-igni
The Caretaker is a long-running project by English electronic musician Leyland James Kirby (born 9 May 1974). His work under the Caretaker moniker has been characterised as exploring memory and the gradual deterioration of it, nostalgia, and melancholia. Initially the project was inspired by the haunted ballroom scene in the 1980 film The Shining, with his first several releases consisting of treated and manipulated samples of ’30s ballroom pop recordings. https://thecaretaker.bandcamp.com/album/persistent-repetition-of-phrases
Kiera Mulhern (b. 1992) is a poet and musician based in New York. Mulhern works with field recordings, various electroacoustic material, and voiced text, incubating words and verbal fragments within thick environments of sound. She is most interested in memory and where it may be situated, fragility of meaning, and basal feelings of aliveness and death. https://recitalprogram.bandcamp.com/album/de-ossibus-20
Soaring wayne phoenix story the earth is a fascinatingly intimate yet elusive record that was made by a trained pianist creating a kind of all-encompassing audio diary that subsequently spent a decade filed away in a drawer. After marinading in the archive while trends passed by, the fleeting stop/start collage of honest humility and ephemeral thoughts resembles a time capsule of a former, or parallel, self; one the artist is only now at ease to come terms with. Vacillating moments of profound lucidity and penetrative pangs of anxiety, https://waynephoenix.bandcamp.com/album/soaring-wayne-phoenix-story-the-earth

Atte Elias Kantonen.
Atte Elias Kantonen (b. 1992) is a Helsinki, Finland based composer, sound designer and sonic artist working mostly in the fields of contemporary performing arts. Although having a background in classical music, he has migrated to the plains of electronic expression, utilizing varying techniques such as modular synthesis, digital processing systems and found sound as the basis of his compositional work. Was it working with collaborative efforts such as performances, installations or solo pieces, the underlining factor for his sonic expression lies in concept-based questions, multimodal impressions and treating sound as a process. https://grannyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/studies-in-audio-fabrics
Outta-nowhere DIY blinder from YOUTH; the sprawling debut album by Manchester-based painter, artist, DJ/producer Richard Harris aka Sockethead, recorded in a caravan on the Scottish West Coast and sweeping from fractal jungle to outsider folk and bruised, squashed soul music, think something like John Bender via Actress and into a Jandek/Robert Wyatt jam, highly recommended if u were feeling similarly singular Northwest tangents from FUMU, Turinn, G.H. https://theyouthlabel.bandcamp.com/album/sockethead-harj-o-marj-y11th
