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.”

Plans for microtonal compilation(s)

The response to the call for micro/xen/JI works was overwhelming. Because I received such a large collection of interesting and quality pieces, and because I’m not in favor of putting out a marathon playlist, Spectropol will be releasing two or possibly three separate compilations a few months apart starting in late October. These may be Possible Worlds Vol. 2-3 (or 4); or I may title them separately.

Stay tuned! [I will contact individual artists.]

call for microtonal works

Spectropol records is seeking audio submissions for a compilation of xenharmonic/microtonal/JI tracks of any style composed/recorded since 2010. The compilation will be a free net-only release in fall 2013 – no money will change hands, but the project will be widely publicized.

Artists featured on the label’s 2011 Possible Worlds compilation should hold off from submitting works (this time around). There is no guarantee of inclusion on the project; as with Possible Worlds, we are planning to showcase a wide range of styles/approaches from a diverse group of international artists. Tracks exclusive (somewhat) to the project are preferred but not required.

Please send perusal links (not attachments) for up to two streaming or downloadable audio files by August 21, 2013 to skiks.bh@gmail.com. Tracks should be stereo and preferably between 2 and 8 minutes in duration. Please reference “Spectropol compilation” in the subject line; text related to the tracks/artists will be requested at a later time.
