An Ant And An Atom ~ Exterior

An Ant And An Atom‘s last release, the single-track Entropy, was a blast of thick, angry textures, a railing against the world.  The new set, Exterior, ends up in the same place, but takes a different road to get there.  In the opening

Siavash Amini ~ TAR

Earlier this year, we predicted a trend toward darker music, and Siavash Animi‘s TAR is certainly a step in this direction.  Seeking to translate fear into sound, the Iranian artist covers traditional instruments (Nima Aghiani’s violin, Pouya Pour-Amin’s double bass) with thick, angry drone.

Nickolas Mohanna ~ Chroma

Chroma, the latest sound art oddity from Nickolas Mohanna, dilates from the smallest pinprick: a sustained piano chord, ground into digital plaster, looms into view. The notes quiver in place, floating aloof beside a 60hz hum, chopped and looped with

Yann Novak ~ Surroundings

Surroundings first emerged as a site-specific sound performance commissioned for the Hamon Observation Tower at the de Young fine arts museum in San Francisco. Yann Novak used the museum’s striking architecture to shape a spacious world of glistening, natural sound, and Surroundings explores its clean atmosphere.
