Schtum Vinyl – final.indd

On the new album »Sequencing Detachments«, the duo schtum transforms elements of electronic dance music into detailed, oversized sound close-ups.
Through repetitive structures, layers of sound eventually detach themselves, thus developing a life of their own, leaving behind an abstract impression of emotional depth.

The trio lean inward, bestial and chaotic, Chen's primitive huffing and reptilian bubble blowing lending each track a human disorder which spars perfectly with the pugilistic pops of Koenigs digital kicks and Desprez desert of atomic guitar scree. (Opal Tapes)

The LP will be released via Ventil Records on 1st of October 2021, tape edition released via → Opal Tapes.

STEPHAN BLUMENSCHEIN

out now!

 

cover_final_withSilkScreen

Stephan Blumenschein approaches sound and music from a visual artist's point of view, though, if one were to expect that everything here would be about abstraction, reduction or deconstruction, one would be completely wrong. It is also not about noise or being radical. Rather, Blumenschein’s music seems to be an excursion about spaces, or about giving sounds a certain place.

KUTIN
»A C H R O N I E«

out now!

 

KUTIN_ACHRONIE_1440x1440_150dpi

With ACHRONIE, Vienna-based composer and sound artist Peter Kutin releases his first purely solo album since 2013. It opens with the synthetic voice - generated by machine-learning (A.I.) - of philosopher Theodor W. Adorno, reading a short excerpt from Kafka's The Trial. Kutin deliberately incorporates a mistake into the text, which points to a temporal impossibility, a paradox. By having Adorno's voice talk about a laptop, Kutin subtly and clearly suggests that something must be wrong here, disrupting our linear view of time.

ANDREAS BERGER
»WORK FOR LIQUID LOFT«
out as LP & digital formats
on the 10th of October 2020

 

Berger_Cover

Basically, all of Andreas Bergers very unique tracks are based on speech samples, of which mostly only fragments can be understood or guessed. Robbed of their syntax and semantics, they become musical building blocks from which Berger arranges minimal and finely woven sound worlds with surgical precision, cleverly combining them with electronic sounds and field recordings.

Releaseconcert: October 10th ODEON, Vienna

SCHRECKEN | PETER KUTIN
THE TROUBLE WITH BEING BORN

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

David Schweighart (aka Schrecken) and Peter Kutin composed the original music for Sandra Wollner's latest feature film - The trouble with being born. This soundtrack lives from the interchange of experimental electronic music and classical song structures. The songs appear like islands to hold on to, in a world that has become difficult to grasp.
