Frédéric D. Oberland ~ Labyrinth

To experience Labyrinth properly, one must try to replicate the original experience.  The multi-room installation in the basement of the Labanque art space in Béthune, France was ideally suited to the cavernous sounds of Frédéric D. Oberland and his cohort Jules Wysock.  One could wander

Markus Mehr ~ Liquid Empires

Markus Mehr may be fascinated by the aural properties of water, but Liquid Empires is no nature album; neither is it placid.  The tape surprises from the start: “Kissing” launches with a head-nodding pulse that leads into a senses-scattering drone, then recedes

Siavash Amini ~ Foras

Foras, which is “outside” in Latin, continues Siavash Amini’s exploration of consciousness, in which last year’s Tar delved upon the relations between the individual and the collective forms of mind. Foras turns that principle inside-out, focusing on the latent connections
