12rec.net: ""Through All These Years" was captured to battery-driven HD recorders deep in the woods of the Eifel region, a low mountain range South-west of Cologne. Home alone, Emil arranged subtle piano miniatures. Listening to these recordings via headphones, bassetthornist Ruediger Krey improvised over Emils' introspect piano dashes sitting somewhere out in the field with wind and birds and rustling leaves around him. All this can be heard on "Through All These Years", especially if you use your headphones for listen."

"A variety of playing techniques were employed (bowing the mandolin with dental floss, hitting the strings with chopsticks, rubbing the back of the thumb piano with a damp cloth, and over-blowing the reeds of a melodica to name a few). Digital processing also plays a role. But whether it’s granular synthesis on bowed strings or fitting hits of a ukulele into a groove pattern, the aim is to enhance the original sound source rather than to obscure it."

Great funny Dub from Germany!

jahtari.org: "BAUHELM is the title of our new NET-7“ number 06 coming from BO MARLEY. The ones of you who speak German will wonder at the marvellous twists and turns that beautiful tongue can take when it gets into the crazy tape loops of the BO MARLEY universe, where Dub is transmitted as voltage and Reggae roots have the form of an analogue-synth cable patch bay!"

thinner.cc: „Acoustic Lazy Dolls“ is a microscopic flow between slowly oscillating electronic impulses and complex Micro-Ambient inspriations. The homogenic touch of the Album is carefully constructed by fragile combinations of odd rhythms and selected sonore structures. A slow, yet organic vibration of single rhythm- and soundparticles invite the listener to perceive the album through a different perspective. Everytime, while lazy listening to it, the sticky-sweet Sinewaves sprinkle in different new flavours." Read on

taz.de: "Die Kultur der Netlabels etabliert sich als Parallelwelt zum kommerziellen Musikmarkt. Meist kostenlos kann man sich hier Stücke herunterladen, die einem eigenen Urheberrecht unterliegen. Oft sind es Liebhaberprojekte, manchen Netlabels liegt aber auch ein neues Geschäftsmodell zu Grunde: Die Musikkonserve wird hier zum Promotionwerkzeug" Mehr

tinitusstadl.de: "in dieser sendung gab es ein spezial zum leipziger jahtari projekt.
jahtari steht für "dlr - digital laptop reggae": "digital laptop reggae is nothing else but reggae music produced with a computer"
doch dies hat nichts mit dem bekannten muster des technodub oder ähnlichem zu tun - nein, die musik klingt nach klassischem reggae und dub - doch auch wieder nicht. die verwendung von rein "digitalen" instrumenten, sprich computer, gibt dem ganzen ein neue note. zudem steckt in jahtari ja auch irgendwie des 8bit-wunder atari. und auch hier wundert man sich ein zweites mal, den die musik klingt nicht nach atari-spielkonsolenmusik, sondern kommt mit mächtig viel druck und bass daher.
neben viel musik von jahtari-mitstreitern gab es einen dub-mix zu hören, der den musikalischen background des projektes näher beleuchtete.
zusätzlich telefonierten wir mit disrupt, einem der beiden köpfe hinter jahtari."

mystified: "Music For Infants" was created by mystified ( www. mystifiedmusic.com ). Filled with quiet bell-like and percussive variations, the piece was written with small children in mind-- but is not exclusive to kids and can be enjoyed by adults, as well.

Quiet morphing phrases twinkle like the stars of the sky, affording the brain with music both comforting and challenging. Listeners will be inclined to let their minds wander, staying alert yet creative, visualizing what nice things occur to them.

Swen: If I had children, I wouldn't play it for them. Sounds more like a soundtrack for old SciFi movies like "The Omega Man" or "Logan's Run"

con-v.org: "Veteran and well-known Washington DC based experimental artist Violet (Jeff Surak) presents on con-v this long track, his latest work; "okraina" is a nocturnal piece, a trip to the end of night.

" Okraina was constructed from field recordings made in December 2003 while on tour in Russia and Ukraine. Gas heated kitchen pipes, men sleeping in a train compartment, passing trains, light bulbs, soviet refrigerators, train toilets are the sources. The sounds where minimally mixed and processed, and the stranger sounds are more a result of strategic microphone placement and the lofi microcassette recorder than software". [ Jeff Surak ]"

From the treewave webpage:
Tree Wave is a band based in Dallas Texas, created by Paul Slocum and Lauren Gray. The band uses unique instrumentation: music is performed using obsolete computer equipment for instruments. Currently they are using a 1977 Atari 2600 game console, a 1986 portable 286 PC, a 1983 Commodore 64 computer, and a 1985 Epson dot matrix printer. The equipment runs custom music software written by Paul designed specifically for the band The music is probably more organic than you'd expect from the instrumentation.

Although definitely electronic sounding, the music is influenced more by guitar based bands and experimental music than dance or electronica"

Dark ambient music which uses lots of unusual sounds, the soundtrack of a strange imaginary movie.

"One winter's night, ... " is the second release of Elín Anna Steinarsdóttir, from Reykjavik (Iceland). A long piece (22 minutes) that works as a perfect sequel of her first album released on Entity ("Impressions").
In this work, Elín deepens all the elements that are latent in her previous production: field recordings, found sounds, waves of well elaborated noise, electronic textures. The use of the dramatisation and her conceptual sense allows her to build bridges between different languages, bringing to us powerful, intense electroacoustic music."

"Arturo en el Barco is the musical output of Angélica Negrón , a young composer from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Angelica is interested in creating electro-acoustic soundscapes that resemble sad tunes floating in a land where sadness is non existent. She is inspired by the works of Gyorgy Ligeti, Stephen Scott, Pauline Oliveros and Erik Satie, and by the music of Tujiko Noriko, Bjork, Piana and Aroah, among others. In this project, Angélica also works with José A. Olivares who is a member of Balún and Los Nervios. “Music for Students” is entirely built out of pianos, strings, kids, clicks, noises, found sounds and confused flutes. This release is a collection of stories about students that never grew up. "

Disquiet.com recommends a netlabel:
"Yes, there's a new netlabel, and it's something of an instant favorite. Noisejihad Live!, at noisejihad.dk/netlabel, posts live recordings of noise acts (no surprise there), and it's already released three sets this year: Massaccesi and Pol Mod Pol; Ryfylke and Danny KreutzFeldt; and Mag Necro and Ultimate Combat Noise. The tracks are lengthy and sizable (one is nearly an hour, at 50 megabytes), and it'll take a while to work through 'em, but it doesn't hurt to start off with the most recent: Kyoto, Japan-based Mag Necro's half-hour guitar performance, a suffering soundscape of improvisatory edgework. Drenched in gloom, it's a fine example of the axiom that the difference between noise and ambient music is often just a matter of where you set the volume level." Read more

despite the fact, that this label is named after the german Artist Kurt Schwitters, member of the Dada movement and maybe the first "noise artist" , this is one of the few indie-rock netlabel. They have published only two releases yet, but they are both a good listen. Merzbau at archive.org

From www.aitanna77.tk :
"aitänna77 is my solo project treating analogic instruments (acustic guitar, electric guitar, xilophone, melodica...) with digital tools (pc, plugins...). The results... kind of lo-fi folk with a pop feeling, weird structures and glitchy/crunchy rhythms."
