"Twenty Hertz profiled: Romancing the Drone" (feature)
Twenty Hertz is a musical platform for Paul Bradley and other  
sympathetic artists, including Monos, Keith Berry and Ubeboet. Since  
eponymous debut in 2003, on sometime collaborator, Colin Potter’s ICR  
label, Bradley has released a stream of textural works exploring the  
drone-based landscape. Sounds drawn from natural environments are  
combined with instruments - chiefly guitar – and shapeshifted through  
DSP manipulations into rich sonorous driftzones.

"Explorations in Sound, Vol 3: Music of Sound - Various  
Artists" (review)
Explorations in Sound, Vol 3, The Music Of Sound is a compilation of  
sound works inspired by the tones, drones and rhythms of everyday  
life. Drawing on the ideas of Pierre Schaeffers' Musique Concrète  
movement, contributing artists were invited to respond to the tones,  
timbre and rhythms present in everyday acoustic sound, and field

"La Reponse est aux pieds - José Luis Redondo" (review)
José Luis Redondo's album of solo guitar compositions is a  
testament to Redondo's dexterity and imagination. Using an unusual  
collection of stringed instruments, he accentuates the noises that  
most guitarists try to remove.

"Musick for Two Machines - Barry Chabala & Phil Hargreaves" (review)
Musick for two machines is a double CD release, designed to be played  
on two CD/ MP3 players simultaneously, with both machines in shuffle  
mode. It is another collaboration in a line of Phil Hargreaves  
releases created via long distance file sharing on the net.

"Palimpsesto - Thanos Chrysakis, Dario Bernal Villegas and Oli  
Mayne" (review)
Deriving from the Greek words for ‘again’ and ‘to rub smooth’, a  
palimpsest is, traditionally, a parchment that has been rubbed clean  
and then reused, each re-writing leaving its own faint traces. The  
musicians featured on Palimpsesto have set out to achieve this through

"Signal - Various Artists" (review)
SIGNAL, the first CD release by a UK label called Finetuned, compiles  
a broad spectrum of sound art, phonography and electro-acoustic  
composition. If I had to generalize, SIGNAL tends to feature pieces  
that are composed of abstract hums, meandering noises, or incidental  
digital artifacts devoid of human composition.
review by Derek Morton

"Slope - Steve Jansen" (review)
Steve Jansen plays an integral, though easily overlooked, role in the  
efforts of one David Sylvain in his endeavors as Nine Horses. On  
Jansen's first solo work, his first opportunity to step to the fore,  
one can hear tell of what he says only through the voice of another,  
through an intermediary.

"Substrate, L'Inondation -Yui Onodera & Mathias Delplanque" (review)
This tendency to dote on the sea, would it be owing to metaphor or  
metamorphosis? The latter is infinitely compelling, but then there is  
that transfixing tale, recounted by Emil Cioran, of the sea as  
consisting of God's tears. Hence our desire to drown in it, as a short- 
cut to God through his tears.

"The Subliminal Relation Between Planets, Dark Night - Andrea Marutti  
& Edward Ruchalski" (review)
A black surface from which no light escapes, a white dwarf that,  
having shed its envelop, burns unremittingly at the core, Andrea  
Marutti's work pushes dark ambient to its limit. The Subliminal  
Relation Between Planets, while continuing in this vein, sees his work  
spill over onto another logic, one that tears it open, lifts it up out  
of itself, and gives it a luminosity, dim and red.
