BS038 Melophobia - '10_3 m'

Some people found this disc accidentally, we tend to do this...
All the others should use headphones in order to underline all sounds...
We come from Greece and we are heading to nowhere!
Recorded, produced, manipulated here!

BS035 Syrtis Major - 6

"The album "6" has a high emotional charge, it's about feelings that were wrote down using notes. Every song tells a different story, the album it's not supposed to be played all at once since you can not like all of the songs at the same time. Try to enjoy the song you hear. It is for the sad people." - Syrtis Major

BS034 Black Square Cloudcast - The Machinery of the Universe

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how
infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and
admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like
a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—and yet,
to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me—
nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.”
William Shakespeare - Hamlet, Act 2, scene 2, 303–312

BS033 Subterrestrial - Esoteric Zoo

"As you may know, Subterrestrial is largely influenced by hollow earth theories, but also conspiracy theories, unexplainable phenomenon and the mysteries of the universe. "Esoteric Zoo" is inspired by fantastic creatures from Persian and Medieval European mythology. My original intent was to create something more "ambient," but the tracks ending up sounding more rhythmic. My usual devices of drone, minimalism and repetition are present, as always." - Subterrestrial

BS031 Cagey House - Major Monk (plus three)

"The first four tracks on Major Monk Plus 3 are music-oriented sound collages that loosely follow an anti-rationalist simian protagonist as he pursues his life-long vendetta against a group of prim'e numbers who run a mustard factory. (Thanks to Clarica and Lucy Burgoyne at Librivox for swell vocal samples, and to Corsica_S at Freesound for the mustard lady.) The remaining tracks are more-or-less conventional instrumental pieces with some vocal embellishments." - Cagey House

“This album is partly a science-fiction story about a corrupt regime that turns people into machines, and partly not fiction at all.

BS028 Fescal - Omnia

Fescal’s recent wayward plunge into the dominion of dark experimental music demonstrates that not only is he a deft of beatless dark ambient drones but of melodic dark electron-organic music as well.
The title track “Ginger Baker” is a noisy venture into an opaque world of undulating drones thundering above subtle textures of electronics and samples.
The aptly named “Vulgar and Kitsch” follows with the catchy babble of strong synth and keyboard samples along with heavy crackles and glitches.
With “Bomdila Monastery” the emphasis is on an assortment of repetitive percussive sounds and looping brazen sonorities.
Fifth “Pork Pie and Beans” is a cold, mellow composition with a beautifully simple minor-keyed melody, sad synths, programmed and brisk, ominous electronics flittering about in the background.
What sounds like sound samples played in reverse set above layers of rolling percussion give “Shrimp Cake” a surreal atmosphere!
“Evening Butterflies” is a playful, abstract collage of thick drones, curious electronics, and static noise.

BS027 KraftiM - Jobin

il était une fois une poubelle....

Once upon a time there was a bin.
Filled with orphanaged soundsnippets from an artist who hesitated what to do with it. Along came a soundarchitect who just learned to behave more ecologically responsable. And so the bin was searched carefully, parts were scrubbed, put in a new home, chopped, treated, refined, remodelled and combined until 7 tracks came out.
The artist is Joanne Gabriel, the sounds are recycled by KraftiM. The titles are derived from the original tracknames and should be pronounced in french...

and now there is Jobin

BS024 Yajna Vedana - Trimurti (Promo)

"Trimurti", त्रिमूर्ति, or "three forms", is a concept in which the cosmic functions of creation, preservation, and destruction are personified by the forms of Brahmā the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Śhiva the destroyer or transformer.

Trimurti, is a concept album based around these three forms. Each song is a dedication, a tribute, a sacrifice to these aspects of creation, preservation and destruction. Utilizing Sanskrit verses from ancient texts and mantras, the lyrics are kept in their original forms and in their original sincerity. Chanted in trance-like states, this is the state that the album attempts to re-create. Theta, theta, theta." - Yajna Vedana

2010 Notes by John Storm:

Ah...2004. A year of waves, babes, and heavily-armed enclaves. And in this turbulent time same a saviour: the first album by the now-legendary A Screaming Comes Across the Sky. What started as a true crusade, to destroy the infidels of bland indie pop (or possibly as a joke to spite a co-worker) blossomed, like the proverbial fungus, scattering its spores o'er the landscape of music until it would be damn hard to get out without going to the doctor. It woos you to know, dear reader, that at the end of the record is a recoding of the first-ever performance of the band, when at the time I was joined by two quite attractive women, at least far more so than Mr. Benjamin, not that he didn't have that little sumthin-sumthin himself, usually after the fifth scotch. At the end of the title track, I hurt myself by drinking some scalding soup. It's a scary world!

“This is my first album devoted purely to field recordings.
Talmenka is the name of the river in Altai Region and a village that stands on it. It's been a very inspiring place for me, surrounded by the woods, lakes and two rivers.
So here is a bunch of tracks I recorded on my several trips there.
I am sure next time I will come up with something more conceptual, but meanwhile I wanted to share a few local frequencies that are more like a sound diary of last summer.
The artwork that goes along with this release are photos of the places where the recordings were done.
Hope you will enjoy the tracks and the artwork.” - Alexei Biryukoff
