We have lost, wandering in strange lands?" - Arna Bontemps

BS082 Midnight Moodswings & Seiswork - The Dopamine Recursive

"And in the end, the beaches are left spread out into solitude waiting to be praised for their beauty. The cities creep up like hateful religions filled with nothing; but still pulchritudinous enough to entice just about anyone. The streets lie covered in cigarette butts. The pavements are stitched together with one predicament after another. A million homeless dreams holding each other’s hands and never letting go. “WALK ON US TO GIVE US PURPOSE” The million bombs and dreams that we sacredly sit on every day are the only things that define us anymore. Our prayers are like those bombs, only difference being that they implode. Singing out loud into the ocean, nobody sleeps into silence anymore." 

A collaboration record between Seiswork (Belgium) and Midnight Moodswings (USA). The record explores a mix between acoustic instrumentation, natural soundscapes and different forms of electronica.

BS081 Claudio Nuñez - End of a story

"I use the same modus operandi for most of my albums (except the ones that are composed): I lay some free improvised moods (usually on rhythm instruments) that serve as the frame or background for the rest of the piece... I call this process ¨real time compositions¨ as I never have any ideas or plans before the actual recording starts... When I feel that the group or orchestral feelings reflect the mood I stop adding new layers or instruments... On my solo guitar or piano sets & albums I do the same, just once... Sometimes I decide that format for the instrument group that is going to appear on the album (a piano trio, a guitar trio= piano/guitar, bass & percussion), do so that all the pieces are going to feature those elements as in real group or just limit myself to focus on one of my main instruments... Little games that add to the music a little more mystery... or (as in this album) I use any combination randomly..." - Claudio Nuñez

BS080 BOOL - I eat phantom

"Style of this album is a Poem core.
Based on the impact of the Japanese sub-culture (anime, music, comedy, game, radio) it was created in a room of small dark home.
It is said to emerge from the magnificent strain of day-to-day trivial matters.
In this album, abstract language has been used in addition to the Japanese.
Even a man speaking in Japanese when listening will not understand half.
I believe that there is value in that kind of chaos." - BOOL

BS078 Black Square Cloudcast - back to Avant-Garde IX

“He who has cast off the world has linked it to yellow dust
Your body is like unto a wound, and you are like unto a madman.
This entire world is a yellow arrow which has pierced you through
The yellow arrow is the train on which you ride towards a ruined bridge” - Victor Pelevin "The Yellow Arrow"

BS074 Cagey House - This Flag Means be Still

"These tracks are about stasis. 

"Living Grass on I-70" started as a short percussion solo. I slowed it way down--something like 800%--until the sound became really degraded. Then I kept altering the pitch until the sonic degradations became the main voice in the track.

"The Finger Can't See" is an experiment with out of phase repetition, boredom, and annoyance.

"Delicate Clock Runs the Street" is the result of a set of rules that force harmonic motion while simultaneously preventing resolution." 

"The Second Fawn" is an arrangement of a single sample (at different pitches and durations) of a Thor's Hammer virtual synthesizer being turned off in mid-note." - Cagey House

BS073 Radio for the Daydreamers - Denouement

So eventually. it is up to him to stop fueling the fire.

BS072 pato cós - parede que me toca

"parede que me toca" reunites three works: 

"mirrita": From the sound of the machine, other sounds are perceived as organic. They are not, but the machine is built by man. The silence interrupts the machine. The animal deflagrates. It challenges it but it is not freed from it. The machine is there. So is the human;

"comoção": It begins with a blow that turns into a wave of noise. Another comes. The noise reveals itself human and makes us feel something; 

"cauterização": Reflection on the voracity of human relationships.
