new Vincent Berger Rond: Elle avait raison Hathor

Out today (4/3). Inspired by mythology, this collection explores notions of womanhood. With the Quebec-based composer’s characteristic “spasmacousmatic” cutup textures guiding form, this is an electroacoustic chamber music that is both disorienting and utterly engaging.

out now: city of the asleep – winter in tumultua

The long-awaited twelfth release from COTA and the first on Spectropol [SpecT 10], winter in tumultua is a scattered narrative depicting a world in chronic upheaval. It is told through a patchwork of sonic textures–glitchy noise wrapped around meandering ragas, atonal piano jazz decaying into industrial film scores, acid-washed ambiance being rudely displaced by chugging kraut-rock. Through these disparate tableaux, the unifying thread of a mathematician’s sensibility is woven, in the form of unusual time-signatures and the microtonal scales found within the unusual 17-tone equal temperament (a natural but unconventional alternative to the usual 12-tone equal temperament). Extensive liner notes are included in the download.

city of the asleep is the pseudonym of Oakland-based musician Igliashon Jones.
