New releases

 


Forests 森林 – Idol Collapse (vinyl, cassette, Lonely God)

“Left Hand Path presents the second full-length LP, IDOL COLLAPSE, from Forests 森林. Written by Jon Du, Kuo-Hung Tseng, and Zun Long in Taipei, Taiwan. Eight songs in 36 minutes that unfurl like a flower and expand like a mushroom cloud, designed for utter osmosis and total absorption. The helix twists; the loop is closed. The cycle begins anew”

For fan of old school industrial (metal percussions, electronics, guitar, bass, voice) with a tiny SPK and Last Dominion Lost influence, especially on the great track Non-marginal. I release not to be missed !

“Left Hand Path 推出「Forests 森林」第二張黑膠專輯「IDOL COLLAPSE」,收錄Jon Du、國宏及尊龍共同創作,總長 36 分鐘的八首曲目。想像凝視著一朵正在綻放的花,在你回神意識到時已開展成鋪天蓋地的蘑菇雲,這是張有意識地滲透聽者每一絲神經的專輯,既是捻捆的雙螺旋、閉鎖的迴圈,又在每次輪迴產出新聲。”


Pupa – Lies (cassette & digital, Ujikaji Records)

“PUPA is a cooperative of two: Jun and Zeek, names to place in action bubbles in a hypnagogic, homoerotic episode of Batman (and his Boy Wonder) starring Adam West; boys with their toys electronic, ringing the body electric.

The music on Lies has a fuzzy temporality, conjuring an electronica that could have come from 1998 as it could 2018. But if ’90s electronica – growing alongside the early days of the  internet – was a dream of the future rife with utopian possibilities, the music in Lies seems instead to commemorate a laundry list of unrealised dreams. In sound and mood, Pupa are fellow travellers with artists like Boards of Canada, The Caretaker and William Basinski. Lies moves at a ponderous pace, as if surveying the wreckage of time caused by everything that has prevented the promised technological utopia. Tape loops underscore the passing of time as uncluttered elements build with the subtlest of shifts. Tape loops re-released on tape, the Basinsking of the Titanic, repeat a lie enough times and it becomes…”


Xiang – Gateway 出入口 (digital, self-released & Prajnasonic/Atmos)

Chinese composer Xiang presents five minimalistic compositions made of vocal samples, field recordings taken in various locations in France and China, and analogue synthesizer (performed by John Richards and Max Wainwright). The result is a very beautiful cinematic composition that flirts with dark ambient (without the usual clichés), noise drones and industrial music (without current the distorted techno beats trend).


Teenage Granny – Glossolalia (The Harsh Sounds of the Internet)  (cassette & digital, Gerpfast Record)

Filipino electronic artist Teenage Granny got a physical release of her Glossolalia album previously published on her Bandcamp page,
“Glossolalia (The Harsh Sounds of the Internet) is a collection of raw sounds of random Internet data (html files, photos, text, etc). These contents have been converted, translated, and databended into audio using a variety of programs. The result is harsh and defining of our online culture and consumption. The piece shows, however, that with noise coexists sound, in which we may form our own meanings, which in turn form the rhythm of our lives. We struggle to hear through this raucous nebula but through critical subtraction and selection, our plights and intentions will be heard, whether we are speaking for ourselves, or for those without a voice. ”


Das torpedoes / Torturing nurse – Split (lathe cut & digital, foreign lands)

US project Das torpedoes, relocated in Shanghai if I understood well presents a drony, ambient, industrial piece, while Torturing Nurse presents his usual powerful harsh noise.


若潭 ruò tán – Live at L’homme Sauvage (CDr, WV Sorcerer Productions)

Chinese project 若潭 ruò tán recorded live at L’homme Sauvage Festival in France in September 2018, one long take (45 minutes) of ritual industrial, noise and dark ambient music.


Pisitakun – SOSLEEP (cassette & digital, Chinabot)

“Created shortly after the death of his father to cancer, Thai artist Pisitakun has combined traditional mourning instruments with harsh noise and techno beats, wrapping them around intimate recordings of the hospital machinery keeping his father alive during his final days.

The result is SOSLEEP, a meditation on the raw, messy chaos of grief. Opening with the sound of a Buddhist monk’s funeral chants, the record’s BMP is led by real recordings of his father heartbeat, turned into electronic blips by the hospital pulse gauge.


Eartaker – Harmonics (vinyl & digital, Bedouin Records)

Japanese trio Eartaker (Goth Trad, Die Suck, Masayuki Imanishi) presents a mixture of dark industrial electronic and doom music. Few parts of the release remind me a bit of Ichiro Tsuji’s project : Dissecting Table blended with a voice closer to the one of Rully Shabara (Senyawa). Their music unique and fantastic mixture doesn’t come as a surprise, knowing that Goth Trad has collaborated with Boris and is part of the dub and drum n bass duo Rebel Familia


Lafidki – Derichan (cassette & digital, Chinabot)

“Saphy Vong was born to Cambodian parents in a Thai refugee camp. He has lived in cities across Europe and Asia, from Paris to Phnom Penh to Riga. These experiences have seeped into his music – a vivid, high energy collision of synths, samples and off-kilter polyrhythms”
“I wanted to give a voice to ethnic minorities, indigenous people, environmental activists who’ve been killed or jailed in Cambodia. I used samples from field recordings of Cambodian tribes, made in 2015 with the help of ethnomusicologist Julien Hairon.”

The interesting result is an electronic music album that navigates between ambient, electronica and traditional music samples.


v.a. – Pop Hits Bootleg Chiptune Compilation (1984​-​2008) (digital, Indochip)

An Indonesian chiptune compilation that include covers of popular hits such as Boys don’t cry (The Cure), Creep (Radiohead), Song 2 (Blur), etc. – Yes, Indonesia, apart of hosting one of the biggest grindcore, punk or noise scene in the whole Asia also hosts a very important chiptune scene, check it out !

Sinotronic ? 33EMYBW is a member of Chinese duo Duck Fight Goose, her electronic music incorporates a lot of Chinese music elements (but no world music stereotypes !), she is part of a new generation of Chinese composers who managed to blend modern and very dynamic, rhythmical electronic music and an original Chinese influx, such as Zaliva-D, among many others.

Safira Anjani & ɟɐɥɯı ɯnɹsʎıp – Illusion (digital, self-released)

The three tracks presented in this release bring the listener to an ambient, almost eerie universe, nevertheless delicate and beautiful.

Necromishka – The space between us (CD, digital, self-released)

Feminism in electronic and experimental music, the failure of most Westerners.

art of the muses

For a few years now, I see and meet plenty of feminist enthusiasts who try to develop new networks, events, workshops, festivals dedicated to women and feminism in the often male-centric experimental and electronic music scenes, where indeed, most djs represented are men, most famous electro-acoustic composers are males, most power electronics artists are males, most famous electronica artists are males and so on and so forth.

Many of those who call themselves feminists and quite rightly scream and shout that they want more equality, more exposure and recognition and want to offer women more opportunities to access the electronic and experimental music world have for most a western-centric vision of the scene.
Never did I see them promoting female artists in the field of electronic and experimental music who come from Asia and Africa (or even Latin America). The victims of exclusion exactly behave like their oppressors and should definitely admit that their fight is a failure and will remain so unless they include all women of the various scenes (including underground rock, metal, punk, grindcore, etc.), no matter what their ethnicities, nationalities, geographic locations, social classes are.

Of course, I hear some of you fulminating against me, accusing me of disempowering them, telling me : “But we didn’t know ! We never heard about them ! How could we imagine there were women doing this music in those places !?” (sic).
It sounds to me like those men telling :”Seriously ? You know of women building modular synthesizer ? I never imagined that it would be ever possible !”
Zero difference.
This is one of the problems of the Western World, it is so much self-centred that it often lacks of imagination and curiosity (even not going so far away as Asia or Africa, how many times did I hear some being surprised that there are musicians in Sardinia or Kosovo or whatever remote village lost in the Swiss mountains who do play underground music).

Now that we live in a more and more interconnected society, to me it is some kind of pure egotism and a certain form of social racism to imagine that only women (or people in general)  in the west do compose electronic, experimental music or punk, metal, oi, you name it… In the time of the invasive internet where those who want, especially those who pretend to fight for some rights, can search, deeply, all kinds of informations using search engines, social networks, databases, music streaming services, it is a shame to see that those born in the “wrong” place still often remain excluded.

I remember women from some networks I will not name here telling that they wanted full support and promotion for women´s projects but how many of them bought or promoted the works and publications I was telling them about ? How many of them attended the concerts I organised ? Very few ! Some even decided to work in closed circles, excluding men from their networks or activities, even those who supported them from the beginning. Some gave me the feeling that they were working for their own ego, that the feminist fight was an excuse for them to clime higher and reach the peak… I may be wrong, I wish so but this is how I perceive this situation for many years.

Now to conclude this small article, here are a few CD references among many others, and following those, you´ll find a non-exhaustive list of under represented women. The CD list is only a small sample that what is currently existing, of course.
