Síria’s “Boa-Língua” reviewed by Musik an sich

Síria ist das Projekt der portugisischen Elektronik / Perkussionsmusikerin und Sängerin Diana Combo.

Tamtam’s “Rheingold” reviewed by The Sound Projector

One more cassette release that came out on the label Crónica. This record serves best to start exploring the world of the noise music. This is truly a textbook example of experimental electronic music! I had a feeling that I opened the window and a real thunderstorm with heavy rain and wind rushed into the […]
