presenting Eidolons – a survey of adventurous electronic music

Eidolons: A Survey of Contemporary Electronic Music

Steve Mueske set out to produce a compilation that reveals some of the complexity, scope, and variety of current electronic music. Spectropol is happy collaborate with him on the release of Eidolons, an album that celebrates non-mainstream music and brings together artists from a variety of places and scenes. The album also includes some longer works, which are often overlooked on compilations.

In organizing the playlist Mueske also wanted pieces that might “converse with each other in a fortuitous way – an excerpt of a larger conversation that extends beyond the boundaries of a “mere” collection. Along those lines Pierre-Luc Senécal’s breathless acousmatic “Urban Gardens” rubs elbows with Busevin’s sound art piece “Three Chants for Computer” and Shane Byrnes’s meticulous deconstruction of a cello performance in “Machinato for Strings.” There are several microtonal pieces by Christopher Bailey, Paul Cousin, and Carlo Serafini, detailed dark ambient work by Fastus, Antonio D’Amato and Bálint Baráth, beautiful and disturbing sound collages, several sonic experiments, and a sublime classical piece by Paul Marquardt.” 

FREE download at Bandcamp.

new Ilia Belorukov album is available!

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.

Musica per Nastro download is here.

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.

Name your price download (now) or $7 CDR (ships Nov 5)  at the link below.
