Antihistamine 2019

Very happy to have contributed a track to this year’s edition of Antihistamine, the no-synth compilation by US cassette label Histamine Tapes!

Here’s my track, two and a half minutes of tape loops and layers of an effected lap harp, giving in to the darkness I carry inside:

 

You can listen, download and support the whole compilation (close to 50 short tracks!) from Histamine Tapes bandcamp page: https://histaminetapes.bandcamp.com/album/antihistamine-2019-ht031

Enjoy!

Hydromancy

at098web
Very happy to present Hydromancy, a new solo digital release that’s found its home in the amazing label / powerhouse Audiotalaia, managed by the insanely talented and hardworking sound artist Edu Comelles.

This release is my most conceptual one to date, revolving around the subaquatic theme, only using recordings made with hydrophones, both mine and found digging around the internet.

The resulting four tracks are, unsurprisingly, filled with underwater ambiance, haunting bubbly noises, distant clanks and other unexplained sounds, bringing images of sunken ships, cursed lakes and ghostly rivers to the attentive listener.

You can listen and download Hydromancy for FREE from the release page in the Audiotalaia website: http://www.audiotalaia.net/2019/10/at098-subespai-hydromancy.html

Hope you like it!

Subespai live @ XperYmentaS

I had the pleasure to be interviewed and improvise live on air with the program hosts at Radio Ciutat Vella for the XperYmentaS program in Barcelona. You can listen to the whole program in this link.

Music starts at the 16:00 mark but be warned! The recording includes Catalan speech, snobbish views, ramblings on experimental music and raw dark improvisation!

Thanks a lot Miquel and Edu for the experience!

2019 Spanish “tour” of sorts

Just as what went down in May/June 2018, I have three upcoming gig dates in Spain this month of October:

08/10/2019 → Interview and live improvisation with the program hosts @ XperYmentaS, Radio Ciutat Vella, Barcelona.
Super excited to perform alongside Miquel Jordà and his crew, closed to the public but live on air, and subsequently available online on the Ivoox channel of the program.

10/10/2019 → Solo show @ Biblioteca Agustí Centelles, Barcelona.
Starts sharp at 8:30PM to coincide with when the library closes for the day, so be early otherwise access will be unavailable!

27/10/2019 → Solo show @ Ultrasons, músiques en vibració. Casa de la Música, L’Alcora, País Valencià.
For this one, I will be presenting “Horitzons distòpics” (Dystopian Horizons), a 15-20 minute performance attempting to soundtrack the immediate and grim future of society. There will be two performances on the day, the first one being at 5PM. Limited seats available, bookings essential in the festival web page!

See you there!

Introducing “Radiant Whispers”

Another promo split between jwptn and subespai, a celebration of friendship, a moral continuation of the artists’ first promo split together Moonlit Falls (still available on digital on my bandcamp page).

Two tracks and eight minutes of modified field recordings, saturated but almost inaudible elements, sun rays, and voices from the past.

Hear it for yourself:

Hope you like it! And if you really want it, drop me a line and we’ll make it happen 🙂

Thesis Recurring #84

Thesis Recurring is an iOS app, made by the amazing label/powerhouse Thesis Project, that lets you soak into an endless collection of eternally looping compositions made by amazing artists like Machinefabriek, Taylor Deupree and many more, accompanied by still photographs normally selected by the label owner himself, Gregory Euclide.

I am happy to announce my contribution to this specific initiative with a gentle processed piano loop, definitely feels like being in a different league:

Thanks Gregory for letting me participate in this beautiful idea!
