теплота is the London-based duo of Grundik Kasyansky & Tom Wheatley. Their work interrogates the haptic, social and liberating relationships with technologies old and new; using feedback synthesizer and computer-acoustic bass, they fuse a spontaneous interplay orthogonally over cyclical structures, with techno as perpetual fulcrum.
CS + Kreme
Experimental duo from Melbourne.
While taking a degree in physics at the National University of La Plata, he also studied music at the La Plata Conservatory (1973–77). He moved to France in 1977 and entered the electro-acoustics class at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique (CNSM) in Paris, gaining his diploma in 1980.
In 1983 he joined the Groupe de recherches musicales (GRM). As a specialist in computer-generated music, he is particularly concerned with teaching, and with the SYTER (système en temps réel) audionumeric system. In 1984 he took over artistic responsibility for the group, and became its director in 1997. He has pursued a parallel career teaching at the Sorbonne since 1986.
Valentina Magaletti & Laila Sakini.
A hypnotic demonstration of improvisation, and an ode to the free-jazz and DIY cultures the two artists rose from, Cupo ultimately becomes an object of intuition that marks both a turning point and coming together of two of London’s most imaginative figures.‘Cupo’ is the debut collaborative album by London based producer/percussionist Valentina Magaletti and enigmatic artist Laila Sakini, deploying an orchestra-sized ensemble of instruments thru dub, ambient, modern classical, and effortlessly experimental modes.
Composed by montaging audio quotations from Coppice’s first two studies, «Circumpass» representing Bellows & Electronics (2009-2014), and «Compass» representing Physical Modeling & Modular Syntheses (2014-2018). Representing Phonography & Fiction (2018-2022), «Hourglass» abridges Coppice’s overarching sonic palette across all three studies (2009-2022). «At the Poles» is a conjunction of two unaltered solo performances, one for an Estey pump organ (cir. 1935, prepared in 2013) by Noé Cuéllar (recorded in January 2014), and one for modular synthesis by Joseph Kramer (recorded in May 2016), each of which has been separated from «Soft Crown» from “Vantage/Cordoned” (caduc., CA, 2014), and «Here» from “Green Flame” (caduc., CA, 2018).
Duane Pitre’s Varolii Patterns was made with an eight-voice synthesizer, tuned in Just Intonation. These six pieces explore shifting polyrhythms that slip in and out of rhythmic focus and utilize “Common Rhythmic Pulses” that carry over as the pattern evolves within a piece.
Langham Research Centre & John Butcher.
Langham Research Centre work as a quartet, a trio or as a duet to make experimental music using resources and ideas that, until recently, were considered obsolete, redundant and outdated. In this recording, Iain Chambers and Robert Worby use cassette machines, oscillators, shortwave radio and amplified small sounds to improvise with John Butcher.
John Butcher is well known as a saxophonist who attempts to engage with the uniqueness of time and place. His music ranges through improvisation, his own compositions, multitracked works and explorations with feedback and extreme acoustics.
“VOICE ACTOR’s music frequently does appear to get bogged down in an obsessive intellectualism and to have difficulty working human emotion into musical form. VOICE ACTOR’s unsuccessful setting of “Badman ona Tandem” shows this difficulty plainly. The subject calls for deep emotional expression, but the musical structures self- consciously direct attention to their formal sophistication, rather than hooking up with the ideas of grief and mourning suggested by the songs.
Broken Spectre, made between 2018 and 2022, is a collaboration between photographer Richard Mosse, cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, and composer Ben Frost.
‘The Clocktower at the Beach’ is a previously unreleased 42-minute archival work composed and recorded in 1979 during Basinski’s time living in San Francisco. At times faint, and other times roaring, this sprawling, foggy drone is a tumult of ebb and flow.
Angus MacLise, the first drummer for the Velvet Underground, was a poet, composer, and a member of The Theatre of Eternal Music alongside La Monte Young.
‘Workaday Strangeness: Gyrating Death Throes From a Void Axiom’ is the new LP from Glasgow-based music originator Wormhook. The music therein, we understand, emerged for highly personal therapeutic reasons; nevertheless to describe it as ‘idiosyncratic’ would do a disservice both to Wormhook and to the concept of idiosyncrasy. While the record is certainly a profoundly unique, irreplicable creation, its music is nevertheless based on a visceral, breathing human rhythm which is common to all living bodies. It represents a celebration of the act of creation as a means of processing psychic and spiritual conflict, unconscious thought leading to spontaneous musical discovery.
Composer and Computer Scientist from Reykjavík, Iceland. Interested in process-based sound and algorithmic composition. How sound and software interacts and the relationship between algorithms and musical behaviour. Recently exploring adaptive synthetic environments, generative sound streams, digital interrupts, and machine-listening applications.
Joseph Kamaru (KMRU), is a Kenyan born, Berlin based sound artist.
Dockstader’s Aerial series, an electronic/drone masterpiece, is cherished among fans of the artist’s work and this first volume is available in a double LP edition of 500 copies with 100 copies on clear vinyl exclusively for Imprec mailorder customers.
15 years in the making, Tod Dockstader’s Aerial series is sourced from his life long passion for shortwave radio. Dockstader collected over 90 hours of recordings, made at night, and comprised of cross signals and fragments plucked from the atmosphere.
Lia Kohl is a cellist, composer, and sound artist based in Chicago. Her work centers curiosity and patience, an exploration of the mundane and profound possibilities of sound.
Rhodri Davies – Loving it. (composed by Salomé Voegelin)
Salomé Voegelin is an artist and writer who works with sound’s relational capacities to practice possibilities of the undisciplined, and to look for the transversal in its fuzzy geographies. She writes essays and text-scores for performance and publication.
Rhodri Davies (born Aberystwyth, 1971) is a harp player working within the field of free improvisation. He was one of the most prominent members of the London reductionist school of improvised music that was active in the late 1990s and early 2000s and which has been described as being “extremely influential over the last decade”
Solo project of Seattle, WA based artist Reita Piecuch. Occasionally, she’s also joined by Herb Diamanté (alter ego of John Godbert).
