This collection of acousmatic pieces from Saint-Petersburg’s Ilia Belorukov melds electroacoustic, ambient-chill, and free improvisation into a unified whole. Granular soundscapes fuse with hypnotic pads, providing shifting moods and often a calm repose. Processed saxophone enters the picture, weaving insistent loops and beautiful lines through forests of gentle noise.
Check out the album on the bandcamp site where you can stream & download I Did What Was Possible to Quiet Us.

This delectable assortment of acousmatic tracks from Italian sound artist/musician Andrea Borghi is a textural feast for the ears.
Originally intended to be released on cassette, the work is also a tribute to composition methods used in electronic tape music of the 1960s. Every track is processed in real-time by a patch built in the Max application and is based on cut-up, sovraposition, sound stretching, loop, echo and feedback.
