Escape From Synth City started life as compilation featuring video game concept packaging

Numero Group have release a homage to 1980s gaming. Escape From Synth City was originally conceived and released as a synth based compilation with video game concept packaging, but now it's been realised into a full 1980s style side scrolling platform video game.

Inspired by NES classics the game takes its player on a quest to Synth City. “Across 6 levels you uncover the sinister undertakings of a corporation over-exploiting the city’s natural resources. You become intertwined with the destiny of the city and its inhabitants, unwittingly leading the charge against the powers that be,” says Numero, confirming it as a manifestation on their Cabinet of Curiosities series.

The game's characters come from across the Numero universe and feature appearances from Laraaji, Isabelle Antena, Terry Ork and others.

The game was developed by Ali Najdi and Thomas McCloskey, a pixel artist based in Northern Ireland. The soundtrack is made up of chiptune renditions of the original Escape From Synth City record release earlier this year and was arranged by Ireland's Ansonix.

Its officially released and freely available to play online within the first two weeks of July. Collectors can purchase a limited edition NES inspired controller and the game's soundtrack on 7”.

Deathprod is releasing a new album this autumn marking 15 years since the artist, real name Helge Sten, has released a solo work. Back in 2015 he and Biosphere put out Stator on Touch, but his last solo album proper was Morals And Dogma in 2004 on Rune Grammofon.

Lenka Lente publish Jean-Marc Montera’s Derek Bailey and Jin Yufeng and Wei Wei translate the guitarist’s seminal 1980 book Improvisation into Chinese

French guitarist Jean-Marc Montera has written a monograph on Derek Bailey. Montera, co-founder of the GRIM in Marseille in 1978, notes Bailey’s influence on his own career, stating Bailey inspired Montera to reconsider his position on music and how to practise it. His 110 page Bailey book is published in French by Lenka Lente.

News also comes in via Twitter that Jin Yufeng and experimental musician Wei Wei (aka Vavabond) have translated Derek Bailey’s Improvisation: Its Nature And Practice In Music into Chinese. Edited by the Shenzhen shop and record label Old Heaven Books, Improvisation is published by China Academy Of Art Press. Its publication was marked by a Bailey tribute, Improvisation For Improvisation, that closed this year’s Tomorrow Festival on 19 May, featuring Tomorrow Improvisation Unit with bassist Mamer, guitarist Li Jianhong, saxophonist/flautist Lao Dan, saxophonist Wang Ziheng and members of Guru Guru.

Originally published in 1980, Bailey’s Improvisation examined the meaning and methods of improvising music in all its forms, drawing on conversations with Han Bennink, John Zorn, Jerry Garcia, Steve Howe, Steve Lacy and more. The cover art (above) of the Chinese edition was done by woodcut artist Liu Qingyuan, who also produced the artwork for Shenzhen’s 2nd Tomorrow Festival back in 2015.

Apart from translating Bailey, Wei Wei has been busy recording her new album Non Serviam, which will be released by playrec in July.

Josh Feola wrote an article about the translator Wei Wei and her partner, the guitarist Li Jianhong in The Wire 406. Subscribers can read that on Exact Editions.

First Aural Diversity concert happening in Bath

1 semaine 6 jours ago

On 6 July musicians will perform via various listening media

The first in a series of concerts by the Aural Diversity project will take place in July. Supported by GNResound Ltd, Aural Diversity was conceived by Andrew Hugill in 2018. It takes its name from a term coined by John Levack Drever, who adapted it from the word neurodiversity. Drever himself no longer has what he describes as “auraltypical hearing” due to tinnitus in his right ear. The project seeks to explore different ways of listening for diverse hearing profiles.

All music at the event is described in a written programme, and sound will be delivered through various media ranging from hearing aids and cochlear implants to vibrating surfaces, video evocations and signing.

The first event will happen on 6 July at The Old Barn on Kelston Roundhill, featuring performances by Anya Ustaszewski, Ruth Mallalieu, Simon Allen, Andrew Hugill, John Drever and Matthew Spring.

The project invites others to present Aural Diversity concerts in line with the rules detailed on their website.

Dublab: 20 Years Of Future Roots Radio published in Autumn

1 semaine 6 jours ago

Book sets out to “bend time and space through sound”

A new publication, Dublab: 20 Years Of Future Roots Radio, travels back to the dawn of internet radio – “a pre-podcast/smartphone/social-media era with infinite potential”, say its editors, and then “flash forward for premonitions of other worlds, other sounds”.

Founded in 1999, the Los Angeles based Dublab station promises an algorithm-free experience. Over it's 20 year history it has provided an early platform for artists such as Flying Lotus, Animal Collective and Julia Holter. Hosts have included Van Dyke Parks, Linda Perhacs, Egyptian Lover and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Today it also has affiliate stations in Germany, Japan, Spain and Brazil.

“Readers who approach the book with open ears will undoubtedly enhance their own adventures in the music frontier,” promise the editors.

Dublab: 20 Years Of Future Roots Radio springs to life with scenes from sad music parties, all-night ambient happenings and multi-sensory underground events,” they continue. “Stories of sleepwalking DJs, thrift store album alchemy and sizzling circuit boards fill these pages. Wise elders, optimistic youth and receptive listeners share their sonic worldviews.”

Edited by Alejandro Cohen, JC Gabel and Mark ‘Frosty’ McNeill, it's published by Hat And Beard Press and is available for pre-order now.

Carlos Giffoni publishes comic book series

2 semaines ago

Musician and composer creates new hero Lou The Cat and releases accompanying music

Comic book publisher Dark Horse has a new hero on its books. A cat named Lou is the creation of Carlos Giffoni, the composer who, this August, will be making his debut into the word of comics creation. Conceived and written by Giffoni, the final product was produced alongside artist and colourist Juan Doe (The Fantastic Four In Puerto Rico, The Legion Of Monsters), and letterer Matt Krotzer (House Of Fear, Retcon). Cover artists include Dustin Nguyen, Jim Mahfood, Alexis Ziritt, Matteo Scalera and Sanford Greene.

“I have been a big fan of comic books since I was a kid,” explains Giffoni, “but in the last five years or so I re-discovered them and have been amazed at how much things had evolved artistically as well as the depth of the stories being told.”

It was his curiosity for process and execution that lead him to have a go at writing some comic scripts. “Something clicked in a way that it hadn't since I was 14 and started making music”.

“To make sure I wasn't crazy I started joining a few online communities of comic creators and writers and started sharing some of my work and polishing it. The reception was good enough for me to get confident about putting a full team together and creating a proposal. After exploring about 30 different ideas, this one felt by far like the strongest one. After a few failed attempts I found the perfect collaborators and a year and a half later, here we are.”

In Strayed, “life is bleak”, says the synopsis. “A military-industrial complex reigns over all humanity and is actively destroying distant alien worlds.[...] The fate of the universe rests in the paws of Lou, an astral-projecting cat and his loving owner Kiara.”

What inspired the story? “The political situation in Venezuela, in the US and the rest of the world was a big part of it. I started to think about how often charismatic leaders turn out to be con-artist pieces of shit that have very little empathy and are pushing their own obsessive beliefs without regard for the damage they are doing. I transposed that into the setting of this story. Taking that to a galactic level and contrasting with the concept of colonization of alien planets."

And what for Lou The Cat? “The second and immediately more personal aspect was the relationship between a human and their companion pet; these little furry creatures can be such an integral part of our lives. I wanted to take that concept and push it as far as I could by making a pet have unique abilities that might be able to save humanity while having a powerful bond with their owner. Mash those two ideas together and the result is Strayed.”

Giffoni will also be releasing 15 – 20 minutes' worth of new music with each publication via Bandcamp, “a sort of EP that can be used as a soundtrack for each chapter,” he explains. “It's going to be all super trippy electronic music, all made with analog equipment.”

Each comic in the series is also named after a piece of music or album that he says he loves: issue 1 is titled Space Is The Place.

So far there are five books in the series with future volumes in the pipeline. “I am also writing Space Riders: Vortex of Darkness with Alexis Ziritt on art for the Black Mask publisher, but that offer came later.”

Strayed will be published on 14 August and open to pre-order into local newsagents now.

Important new releases by Harry Bertoia and Jacob Kirkegaard

3 semaines 4 jours ago

The two sound artists each explore different approaches to working with metal

In June Important Records will release three new albums with a common theme: metal. One is a reissue from the late Harry Bertoia, and the other two feature new recordings by Jacob Kirkegaard. “Using two completely different approaches to working with metal these two artists, a generation apart, create deep, singular works with metal sheets and rods,” says the label.

Cut straight from the original master tapes, Bertoia’s LP Experimental I/Mechanical I features the two tracks “Experimental I” and “Mechanical I”, while the CD version also includes the bonus track “Long Sounds”. The Bertoia release follows the resurrection of his Sonambient label by Important. “When the first new LP was released in 2016 we were only in possession of 1/20th of the archive,” states the label’s press release. “Now, in 2019, we're excited to release the first LP of new material from the full archive and we present it to increase understanding of what Bertoia was doing in his sound-barn deep in the Pennsylvania woods.”

Regarding Kirkegaard’s two new albums, Black Metal Square is released in an edition of 100 copies and its sounds are made from three free hanging black metal plates, while on Phonurgia Metallis you can hear the sounds of free hanging iron, copper and brass plates. The latter is pressed in a limited edition of 300 copies.
