New track - Callisto by Selles

2016-12-20 03:13:25 UTC

New

Following the dark, yet melodious nostalgia of Sunwarper, and the hazy summer warmth of Life Aquatic, Selles returns with the otherworldly single, Callisto. A song built from real instruments being spliced and warped to create an immediately recognizable, yet seemingly foreign melody. Selles creates an auditory world filled with ghostly synths, warped guitars, booming bass, and field recordings teeming underneath an electronic surface. Taking influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Cloudkicker, Tycho and Explosions in the Sky, Selles combines the ambience and groove of IDM and Chillwave with the instrumentation and aesthetic of Post-Rock. This was part of a planned early 2017 EP; however, as writing progressed it became apparent that this would be the start of the next Selles full length album.

Michael Jakucs began creating music as Selles in 2013 to explore the electronic experimentation of chopping instruments into samplers. Drawing equal influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky, Tycho and Eluvium, Jakucs’ music is filled with carefully crafted chords, organic sounds and instruments manipulated beyond recognition with a computer. Using the tumult of the world as influence, Jakucs creates a memory filled soundscape of fractured melodies with meaning buried under the audible surface.


Genre : chillwave, electronic, idm, ambient, cinematic, downtempo, post-rock

Soundscape Exploration: Binondo by Escuri

Escuri has been actively producing and performing experimental music in the Philippines.  He released several EP which include Parallel Worlds (2013), a compilation of avant-garde analog sound works which took inspiration from the literary works of Haruki Murakami and Kobo Abe; Coloring Book (2015), a collection of purely digital audio works; and ORBIT21 (2016), a collaborative sound work with music producers from California, UK, Texas, Netherlands and London.  

His musical works has been featured in local radio stations and publication. His current musical project involves performing electronic music in various settings (public, semi-public and private spaces) in an attempt to explore how these physical spaces contribute to and/or affect sound and performance. In addition, the project also explores how synthetic sounds interact with natural sounds and how this interaction affect the binaural perception of the listeners . Other on-going projects include field recordings with visual artists .

He is part of Pixel Collective, a local group of emerging digital/electronic/analog/lo-fi musicians; and Buwan Buwan Collective, a record label dedicated to unearthing substantial electronic art forms. 

A collaboration Purveyr and adidas Originals.

Around August 2016, they roamed around the streets of Escolta, Philippines and did a soundwalk.

This opportunity paved way in exploring field recordings. In the process, they recorded ambient sounds and collaborated with the locals by asking them to do rhythmic beats using familiar objects (coins, hammer, basketball and even coffee machine!)

Like photography, music also has the power to capture a moment, make it eternal and deliver euphoria and nostalgic memories.


Genre : chillwave, hip-hop, electro-math, contemporary

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
