Geese is a side project of the Elysian Quartet, veterans of numerous high profile performances and recordings, including the forthcoming premiere of Stockhausen’s “Mittwoch aus Licht”, where they will perform in helicopters. These pieces showcase their blend of looped and manipulated violins, virtuoso drumming and twisted electronics.
JNewman is a London based composer, programmer and sound artist. These two serialist pieces were composed as part of a recent film project. His other work includes drone and data bending pieces, sometimes release under his English Bore alias.
Mahler Haze is a former star of the European black metal scene turned ambient/soundscape adventurer. His work, recorded in his home country of Belgium, is conceived and conducted in and around sacred sites, battlegrounds and religious structures, which he aims to bring to life sonically.
Morgan Fisher is a legend of the experimental and concept recording scenes. From classic early works (Hybrid Kids, Miniatures etc) and collaborative works (‘Slow Music’ with Lol Coxhill) to his ambient material and a career touring with rock giants such as Mott The Hoople and Queen, his work never fails to illuminate and inspire. “SixLiveMinutes” was recorded at Super-Deluxe, Tokyo, where he now lives.
Hand of Stabs, from the South East of England, are a three man collective who’s work draws inspiration from their exploration of local, often forbidden, landmarks. Using unusual instrumentation and homemade equipment, they create a wall of sound which can be simultaneously uplifting, difficult and disturbing.
Doll Brains are the legendary lost band of the Dollwave scene which thrived briefly and secretively in New York during the early 2000s. This is their only recording, and condenses eleven songs into three minutes. Originally recorded for Small Punk Records, the album was never released and is issued here for the very first time.
