Mathias Delplanque’s “Témoins” reviewed by Chain DLK

“Témoins” comprises three pieces of sound art composed and compiled between 2011 and 2014- or just the first two pieces if you opt for the cassette rather than the download. Conceptually they are post-production-light layerings of organic recordings from three different locations that were given to Delplanque as though they were instructions, on top of […]

New release: Mathias Delplanque’s “Témoins”

Témoins is Mathias Delplanque’s third release in Crónica, after the acclaimed Passeports (Crónica 048~2010) and Transmissions (Crónica 088~2014).

New Release: Ifs’s “Manifold Basketball”

Manifold Basketball includes four tracks that focus on the connection between sound and different types of space, between the close and distant locations, using for this purpose a spectrum of reverbs and – often strongly modified – field recordings.

Tarab + Artificial Memory Trace’s “Obex” reviewed by Chain DLK

Sonic experimenters Slavek Kwi (Artificial Memory Trance) and Tarab have engaged in a kind of cultural exchange whereby they provided objects and activity sounds to one another, irregularly transforming them into amended sonic products that would then be recycled into other noises. The result is a hard-edged, heavily-processed hour long collection of processed noises, often […]
