Tibetan Red - Fouta Djalon



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#173], Ivory Coast, 2022


Salvador Francesch, the man behind Tibetan Red, passed away in March of this year. I don't know the cause, but what I do know is that he had lost his wife several months earlier and was inconsolable ; his last album "Transition" was dedicated to her.
It's a terrible loss. Those of you who are familiar with Nostalgie de la Boue net-label may have understood that Tibetan Red is one of my favorite musical artists. Like many other people, I discovered him on the first compilation LP released in Canada by Freedom in a Vacuum in 1987 and with his fantastic debut cassette released by the same label. Extremely discreet and underrated, he produced 8 albums between 1985 and 2021. The most recent ones were very little distributed : released by Salvador himself, he was not trying to sell them.
The best I can do to celebrate his memory and his work is to share some of the albums that were not yet available on Nostalgie de la Boue net-label (he had authorized me to re-release any of his albums).
I start with Fouta Djalon (2006). On June 4th 2013, Salvador wrote me about it : "The CD Fouta Djalon is particularly interesting to me as it was a sort of exorcism after I contracted malaria in Guinea/Konakri and passed away twice in the hospital I was two months in coma, and took me two years to recover. That was also the time I visited Ivory Coast."


Tracklist :

1. Fouta Djalon (Study On Synchronicity) (14:11)
2. Fire Pilgrimage (19:21)
3. Fields Of Activity (16:32)
4. Stone Koan (15:13)

Almost a decade earlier, thanks to a rip from Carlo (one of the contributors to this blog), I posted an excellent cassette by Janus, a German duo formed by the brothers Ulrich and Andreas Demgen. Since then, I wanted to discover their first tape which was not available anywhere. Thanks to Shane, here it is now, and it was worth the wait.

Aos Crowley - The Divine Invasion



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#172], Ivory Coast, 2022


The Divine Invasion is a work of dreams turned real by Aos Crowley. Inspired at times by Phillip K Dick's book of the same name, waking and sleeping dreams, conversations after midnight with interesting people, and the period between 2000-2003 where Aos had episodes of sleepwalking long distances at night with eyes open, miles and miles in the city, in darkness, with all of the beauty and terror, often ending up at the beach or surrounded by buildings and people who seemed as ghosts... often ending up miles away from home in enlightened bewilderment.

Matt has been a musician for more than 45 years and has produced work in a variety of formats and styles, including film scores and game sound design for Sony Playstation.
The Aos Crowley project focuses on the things that come past the wall of sleep into the waking world, where dreams and nightmares transgress and are transduced into sound.

Guru Bobol - Esogriphe



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#170], Ivory Coast, 2022


At the end of the 80's, Gregoire Charbey exchanges tapes as a hometaper in high school, in a spirit of tinkering with organs, toys and delay pedals, under the name of SPIRITUS NAEVUS, then through the micro label EXPREL, in the early 90's. The sound is already experimental, soaring, made of layers, oscillations, textures. Spiritus Naevus participates in many compilations and some concerts. At the same time as music projects for short films, documentaries and shows, and inconclusive experiments in purely digital universes, the interest for gliding, slow and dark music is reborn with GURU BOBOL. It's a return to analog sounds, to free experimentation, to improvisation, a more assumed music, without intermediary and very little mastering. The sound sources are recorded on a 4-track cassette, in mono output like the amp on which everything comes out. The use of looper allows to include acoustic sounds, the superimposed layers of voices humanizing the electronics by haunting murmurs. The names of the pieces evoke, in fictitious vernacular, places, people, sensations. These onomatopoeic sonorities resulting from random combinations leave the music without objective explanation, without common reference point. The visuals that accompany the music are mainly borrowed from a parallel plastic work, made of mud, dry grass and sand.
ESOGRIPHE is composed of 7 tracks in direct take, improvisational pieces cut in a fat and abundant raw material, but which knows neither beginning nor end. The arrangement of the tracks between them tries to organize an intelligible journey, despite the flow, the accidents and the oscillations.


Tracklist :

1. gangre (7:52)
2. esogriphe (10:37)
3. arconthe (10:56)
4. podrome (6:32)
5. anterme (13:33)

Adam Majdecki-Janicki - Aldebaran



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#168], Ivory Coast, 2022


"Aldebaran" was inspired by Eliane Radigue, Kosmische Musik pioneers, Industrial culture, old sci-fi movies, primal trance, shamanism, and rich Polish underground culture. In "Aldebaran" Adam finds his first fascinations with sound come to life again, and is surprised by how little has changed in his approach to noise and music. "Aldebaran" could well be one of the "mythical lost tapes" of his first Poznań band.
