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 […]

Tarab + Artificial Memory Trace’s “Obex” reviewed by Aural Aggravation

There’s something seriously awry with my promo download of the album. The tracks won’t play any audio, and instead flit by as if scrolling, searching through a menu on fast-forward. It’s a disorientating experience, and frustrating. But my curiosity I piqued, and so I feel compelled to piece together a review from the sources I […]

Graeme Truslove’s “Intuited Architectures” reviewed by The Sound Projector

Cabinets stuffed with academic credentials and accolades, Glasgow-based Graeme Truslove is a seasoned sonic scientist; using metaphorical microscope to illuminate the sub-cellular dimension’s peculiar turns of phrase, weaving these into chaotic tapestries with which he invades performance spaces. He may not be the first to have covered the cline between fixed-medium electroacoustics and real-time sound […]
