New album "It was darker, then lighter, till it was all drowned in splendor" by PacificLoon

2017-04-13 03:53:37 UTC

Unnamed

Pacific Loon is an artistic project by Francesco Busiello born in 2013.

First of all he’s a member/composer of Starframes, later he focused on cinematics, field recording and visuals. His first ep “Growth”, was born after an accidental meeting between himself and Leana Pizzoferrato, music inspired by her images to analyze aspects such as the rise and fall of humain being. In September 2016 he was selected to compose a soundtrack for Artemisia Gentileschi masterpiece “Giuditta che decapita Oloferne” at Museo di Capodimonte in Naples. He had been always fascinated by the city, so then he decided to start doin’ mini concept records.

"It was darker, then lighter, till it was all drowned in splendor" it's a concept record based in Naples, it goes through esoteric and hidden places of my hometown. Every places got his own music composition, supported by minimal static videos; I did also experience some rough field recording, to make it part of music composition: I wanted to make a "low-fi" record, I didn't look for perfect sounding, cause it's reflects how the city lives. I've been always fascinated by light in Naples, warmer and delicate in spring, iced and cruel in winter, so that's where the title comes from. EP starts with big reverb and dark mood of "Piscina Mirabilis", a big cistern built by Romans, to end with "Santa Maria Della Fede(to wane without disparagement)" set in an old cemetery, one of the most brightest day of my life."

New album Ghost Shirt Society by Antethic

2017-04-06 04:29:22 UTC

New

ANTETHIC is an instrumental rock trio from St. Petersburg, Russia. One of the most interesting and innovative bands on the European post-rock scene. The trio is notable for an impressive and organic combination of a variety of genres, such as electronic, progressive rock, ambient, drone,  and shoegaze. Staying true to the band's experimental and atmospheric roots every new release shows progression towards more balanced and electronic sound. Throughout a 5 years lifetime, Antethic has released 2 LP albums, several EP and singles.

The latest album 'Ghost Shirt Society' is the first work of  Antethic as a trio in 3 years. The record challenged them with the line up changes and expanded each member involvement on multiple instruments. This resulted in more detailed and yet flowing compositions which they see as their best works so far. The album is inspired by idealism philosophy, utopian and post-catastrophic ideas. As usual Antethic was looking for the way to express specific philosophical or political idea by the means of music.

New album Departures, Vol. 1 by North Atlantic Drift

2017-03-23 05:23:02 UTC

New

The song Dream Sequence is from their upcoming LP Departures Vol. 1, out as of March 17th on Polar Seas Recording. The video was directed by Kiarash Sadigh and shows a blindfolded quartet playing in the forest with a light approaching. The core concept being musicians playing very aggressively in juxtaposition to the very slowly evolving ambience of the piece.

"once they sense the light they begin questioning their own actions...they stop and remove the blindfold looking directly at the source of light....what that light is and what it represents is for the viewer to find out, but the takeaway is to be open minded for breaking habits and traditions if and when a brighter truth presents itself"

Den by Line Gate

2017-03-19 05:24:47 UTC

New

Line Gate was formed in Michalovce, Eastern Slovakia in 2010. Since then some personal changes were made and now a solo incarnation is residing in Prague. After two years of solitary bedroom experimentation and almost four years after the debut “Split Lines”, Line Gate is coming with a new album, Den.

Mappa presents Den, a simple concept with a clear vision. A deep dive into endless repetition without any disturbing intervention, with only soft modulation of a hurdy-gurdy drone resonance. Den reveals minimal shifts in repetition and the possibilities of perception without the horizon of time.

At forty minutes long, the basis of the recording remains constant. What differs, is the listener's awareness and the wakefulness of the performer himself. Tension retreats to sensibility, release, and an opportunity to totally merge with the instrument and the physicality of sound fulfilling the room. Den is a burrow where inattention dissolves into calm perception of fluid measureless soundscape.

...in ocean where Poseidon, Eliane Radigue, Phill Niblock, Charybdis, La Monte Young, Moby Dick, … are throning



Track List


Den - 42:46


Genre : experimental, drone, electroacoustic, experiemental, minimal, minimalism
