Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to flag up new issue of  Furthernoise.org. As always we  
are stocked up with new reviews and features on a host of innovative  
noise makers for your listening reading pleasure.

Furthernoise issue July 2009

"Infrequency Modulators" (feature)
Infrequency is Jamie Drouin and Lance Olsen's platform for small  
editions of minimalist soundworks. It's been true to its name in terms  
of releases, a sizeable sample of which follows. Most notable is a  
keynote compilation, striking both for its archaeological concept and  
its imaginative conceit, uniting polarities of primitive and hyper- 
modern recording.

"A Quiet Reverie - Mark Peter Wright" (review)
A Quiet Reverie is an exploration of the ruined abbeys of North East  
England. It explores the relationship between phonography, history,  
architecture and psychology by transporting the listener through sonic

"Breathletters - Sublamp" (review)
Los Angelos-based sound artist Ryan Connor uses the Sublamp monikor to  
craft an airy pastiche of glacially evolving soundscapes in his recent  
release Breathletters. He presents these conceptual sound works as  
unwinding sculptural elements, abstract in form, yet suggesting  
natural, environmental processes.
review by Derek Morton

"Escaping from Color, Rapoon Recomposed and Remixed - Various" (review)
The Ulkraine based Quasi Pop label have been quietly releasing  
consistently innovative albums since 2001, and with a roster of a  
virtual who's who of the sound art fraternity, this latest offering is  
no exception. Escaping from Color, Rapoon Recomposed and Remixed is  
fifteen track compilation of contributions from various artists  
remixing audio from Rapoon's “Tribal Sci Fi” CD-ROM.
review by Roger Mills

"Gity - Homework" (review)
Homework is the project of one Andreas Lang from Munich and Gity is  
his first release on his own very interesting q-tonelabel.The  
philosophy is to release no specific style, although it's often rooted  
in minimalism, sound-experiments or abstraction, with one interesting  
limitation; they reject pure electronic music - it has to be partially  
recorded acoustically.

"Opus Spongebobicum & Frank Genius is Star Struck - Frank  
Rothkamm" (review)
Citing Jean Paul Satre from the Critique of Dialectical Reason in the  
sleeve notes, 'the dialectic reveals itself only to [.....] an  
investigator who lives his investigation' very much defines the  
approach that I have come to expect from the one man label, composer,  
film maker and theorist Frank Rothkamm

"Persistent Repetition of Phrases - The Caretaker" (review)
Under the moniker Install is an independent record label run out of  
New York. They specialize in experimental music and found sound.,  
James Kirby puts out music that can perhaps be most appropriately  
described as quietly harrowing.
review by SongMing Ang

"Primal elements - Scott Baker" (review)
Abre Ojos creates hypnotic dystopian meditations, where images from  
our collective past appear in mirrors, drawing the eye to the mandalic  
figure in the center. The focus is narrowed further with the deep  
drones that swell to fill the audio spectrum, ominous harbingers of a  
world pared to the primal elements.
