RENT
»Kill A Phantom«
LP & digital formats
out on June 21st

 

Cover

Rent ist the pseudonym of artist and ecologist Katrin Euller. Rent’s sounds refer to industrial ecosystems, interconnections, dark landscapes and their stories and the stories of those who inhabit these places. At the same time, it is the processes of sound creation itself that emerge in Rent's compositions: sounds influence each other, reinforce each other, cancel each other out, dissolve and become noise, sound like the city, a car alarm for example. Then everything gets lost in the fog again.

SCHTUM
»SKULPTUR«
digital formats
out on June 12th!

 

SKULPTUR-COVER-1440×1440-by-schtum

SKULPTUR captures a live performance of the Viennese duo schtum (Manu Mayr & Robert Pockfuß) in a studio environment. Equipped with electric guitar and bass, they introduce live re-sampling techniques and heavy use of stereo panorama effect pedals to weave layers of fluid rhythmic structures.

We are pleased to present our new artist-in-residence program in cooperation with Westbahnstudios. This year, four great international artists will spend some time in Vienna to work on new projects: Victoria Shen, Mariam Rezaei, Yuko Araki & Mark Fell. The residency always ends with a performance by the respective artists at the Westbahnstudios.

Our first guest is none other than Mark Fell, who has been residing and experimenting at Westbahnstudios together with Studio Dan for some time now.
The final performance of his stay will already take place in two days on May 31, 2024 from 8 pm in the Westbahnstudios. We are also very pleased that the second concert of the evening will be contributed by Stefan Juster alias Jung an Tagen.

out on March 1st!

 

MNEEM_Cover_quadrat_1440x1440

The composer and pianist Ingrid Schmoliner writes and plays music the allure of which cannot be resisted. Her pieces are ecstatic cascades of sound which unite formal strictness and psychoactive effects. Her new work MNEEM is a musical monolith.It is a breathtaking one hour plus tour de force through complex uptempo pattern, played on the prepared grand piano.

TEARING
»all sides find insides«

out now!

 

1-FRONTCOVER_TEARING_allsidesfindinsides

In their work, TEARING (Lens Kühleitner and Manu Mayr) deal with the hyperreality and artificiality of sounds. They draw on the rich potential of their diverse musical roots and skillfully move from ethereal clearness to sophisticated sound collages.

KUTIN
»The Slowest Urgency«
digital formats
out now!

 

TSU_1400x1400

Peter Kutin reinterprets the site-specific compositions he created for the choreographer Philipp Gehmacher over the past four years. It recreates the multi-channel sound experience for binaural headphone listening, capturing the key compositional parameters and spatial relations presented in the live work. Slow, but urgent.

PLF

LP & digital formats
out now!

 

PLF-1440×1440-1

For their second album, the non-conformist trio PLF delves deeper into broken song structures and harsh rhythms. Restless, the »scream-of-consciousness« vocalist Elvin Brandhi, sonic dissident & producer Peter Kutin, and multifarious drummer Lukas König spew a fresh batch of tracks resembling post-apocalyptic rituals.

»INVERT«
first single out now!

 

TEARING_KNIE-1440x1440px

Happy to announce TEARING's single »INVERT« and upcoming album »ALL SIDES FIND INSIDES«. Stay tuned!

Coming from differing musical backgrounds, the two musicians  - Lens Kühleitner aka Lan Rex and Manu Mayr - draw from fuzz peaking synth sounds, wave-beating strings and rousing basses. Dealing with the hyperreality and artificiality of sounds, from ethereal clearness to multiplied voices - they offer you an immersive room. Drawing you in - until decisively releasing you.

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)

STEPHAN BLUMENSCHEIN
»HMM... 1, OR 2 OR SO METRES. INSIDE«
LP & digital formats
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.

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.

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.
