Peter J Woods : Fear

Peter J Woods : Fear c20/c9/c17 Box Set
3 x Hi-bias Type II cassettes housed in a vinyl box w/ Full color cover + 3 full color inserts

Over the past three years, noise artist Peter J Woods has been slowly changing his style from straight ahead harsh noise and power electronics performances to one that more closely resembles darkly absurdist theatre. “Fear” represents the culmination of this change, collecting the audio portion of five previously staged theatre works (and one brand new, purely auditory piece) on three different cassette tapes. As a musical work, “Fear” finds Woods in familiar, albeit a more distilled form. Harsh walls and howled vocals interrupt long silences and minimal, textural recordings that create a tone of unsettled calm and ensuing terror. More then just exploring the notion, these cassettes induce a primal and unending fear.

Christopher Tubbs : Caravan : Heat Of The Night Mix

Biosphere : L'incoronazione di Poppea

Released 16th June, an eagerly awaited 12 track download album from Biosphere on his Biophon label on Bandcamp

The dialogue explaining the ideas behind the release taken from the Bandcamp page ;
"The music is based on Claude Monteverdi´s opera of the same name. 
L'incoronazione di Poppea (The Coronation of Poppea) is an Italian baroque opera first performed in Venice during the 1642–43 carnival season. The music, attributed to Claudio Monteverdi, is a setting of a libretto by Giovanni Francesco Busenello. One of the first operas to use historical events and people rather than classical mythology, it adapts incidents from the writings of Tacitus, Suetonius and others to recount how Poppea, mistress of the Roman emperor Nerone (Nero), is able to achieve her ambition and be crowned empress. The opera was revived in Naples in 1651, but was then neglected until the rediscovery of the score in 1888, after which it became the subject of scholarly attention in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since the 1960s, the opera has been performed and recorded many times"

Kenny Larkin Classics Mixes 1 + 2

Detroit Techno heavyweight Kenny Larkin this week uploaded 2 classic mixes, well worth a listen..

Between The Cracks : Concrete Sound System Compilation 2012

BETWEEN THE CRACKS, the innaugural compilation release for CS² Recordings, offers an eclectic mix exploring the possibilities the post-electronic age has to offer. A forty minute journey into the crevices, BETWEEN THE CRACKS plays like a sonic narrative to modern style and form in the ever present future.

Galaway's Jimmy the Hideous Penguin weaves turntablism into bass heavy IDM. Native Hawaiian CRUT chops up an ambient strut. New York's HPrizm (High Priest of Anti-Pop Consortium) delivers sci-fi infused global beats. Atlanta's Real Soon melds an electro-acoustic sound that blurs the line between them.

BETWEEN THE CRACKS serves as an audio mission statement for CS² Recordings moving forward - to continue the exploration and development of systems of sound that push the possibilities beyond perceived limits.

Track listing :
1. Recompression Chamber (Burn Unit) - Concrète Sound System
2. Dred - Jimmy the Hideous Penguin
3. Oddible - 22Tape
4. Process - Justin Deremo
5. Waho Holoholo - CRUT
6. Set the Melody - amukaT
7. Sunny Winter - Danny Drive Thru
8. Streetlight Flicker - Adam Bomb
9. Gammalon - HPrizm
10. Folk Song of an Alien World - Real Soon
