V/A Drone-Mind // Mind-Drone Vol. 8 LP
Drone on! We're finally back with a more 'pulsative' and post industrial-influenced issue, presenting the following artists: Kazuya Ishigami (*1972 / Osaka / Japan) is a prolific composer, engineer, sound designer and performer active for many years (also under the name Daruin), with broadcasts of his works around the globe. His track 'Clean2020' works on the theme of 'memories' and is based on the idea to accept and acknowledge even the painful memories to reach a state of ease and to transform the subjective past...
Aume is the duo of Scot Jenerik (23five Inc. / Mobilization Records) and Aleph Omega (ex-Chrome), from the US west coast, both also active in F-Space before, creating stunning audio-visual 'immersion dark ambience" with true archaic energy..
Hiroshimabend (aka 'puppy38') hails from Austin, Texas but has been based in Vienna for many years now, and has impressed with many long-form works in the field of electronic / esoteric emanations, mostly self-released via Opiumdenpluto. He is also active as a visual and mastering artist...- "Listening to the music of Hiroshimabend has been likened to swimming in a milky lake of black ink."
Baldruin is a German project with a very electronic and musical
edge. His pieces appear to be like excursions into a (bad) fairy-tale
world.. - "well constructed cosmic ambient-scapes with a dark
psychedelic / cinematic / surrealistic touch; when strange voices,
subtle percussion and whistling noises enter the scenery.."
Let your mind be surrounded by adventurous sonic landscapes - organic repetitions as coming from a ghostly otherworld, oriental field recordings, layers of pipe organ-like drones, mysterious electric ether-potentials etc..- "Vier feine Synapsenputzer machen einem mal wieder so manches klar.." [Bad Alchemy}
