Janus - Anima Mundi



Cassette, C60
Label : Self-released, Germany, 1986
Ripped by Shane English (Youtube channel : heliae)


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. On this tape, the Demgen brothers are accompanied by Rose Kasseckert and Will-I Stasch of Cthulhu Records fame.

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.

1. Sungrinder (3:46)
2. Macho (1:19)
3. Crescendo (3:56)
4. Curses (2:18)

Aos Crowley - Colored Vapors Saturate My Dreams



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#171], Ivory Coast, 2022

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)
6. urcline (17:52)
7. sertille (6:02)

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.


Tracklist :

1. Plutonia (5:07)
2. Stars Are The Way (4:06)
3. We Are Grown By Mushrooms From Outer Space (4:18)

Patrick Wiklacz - I See The Future



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#164], Ivory Coast, 2021


Patrick Wiklacz is passionate about synthetic sounds. He combines the practices in electroacoustic music (GRM) with influences from German experimental music from the 1970's and minimal composition, thus creating a very singular proposition.
He has produced sonic environments (Nuit blanche, Versailles, 2015), radio compositions (France Musique), and took part in many musical events, like the Paris Ambient Festival. But he has always kept a distance with the institutional scene and withdrawn himself from agitation, to concentrate for many years on a delicate work, at times minimal, ambient, drone or acousmatic.
Mixing surrealist reminiscences and buddhist resonances, Patrick Wiklacz patiently grows his secret garden of electronic sounds.


Tracklist :

1. Pour ou contre (4:57)
2. Vu d'en haut (8:30)
3. Who is dead ? - You (10:21)
