For Ryoji Ikeda, it was a question of finding a mom https://editionsmego.bandcamp.com/album/cylene-suisse-redux

Gareth Williams & Mary Currie.
Flaming Tunes was recorded by Gareth Williams (ex of This Heat) and his childhood friend Mary Currie and released on cassette in 1985. A hodgepodge of lo-fi pop songs, experiments and location recordings that sound like they were never intended for public consumption, it’s by chance or design one of the most moving, personal, memorable DIY/experimental pop albums of the 20th century, you better believe it. https://flamingtunes.bandcamp.com/album/flaming-tunes
Leipzig based TIBSLC (The International Billionaire’s Secret Love Child) sculpts hazily ambiguous but meticulously detailed sounds hypersensitive to nanoscopic movements and fleeting midnight feels. Blending subtle environmental recordings with processed digital noise and feedback, the eight parts of ‘Delusive Tongue Shifts – Situation Based Compositions’ find themselves in good company on sferic’s roster of intuitive ambient explorers, but TIBSLC’s work is distinguished by an arcing narrative quality that emerges across its yawning spaces, each viewed by perspectives ranging from lofty, birds-eye to more intimate and voyeuristic. https://sferic.bandcamp.com/track/beachlife
