Atom™ ~ Neuer Mensch

The music on Uwe Schmidt’s new album was programmed, engineered, and mastered by an algorithm. And after he heard it, he was so intrigued with his performance, he finally broke free from conventional song writing culture. Here at ACL, we

Blomfelt & Narby ~ Peter, Barbara, Beth & Friends

By sheer coincidence, Gaspar Narby and Henrik Blomfelt both grew up in Switzerland— though Blomfelt was born in Finland— but didn’t meet each other until they were grown and both studying in London. This is the kind of happy accident one

Precipitation ~ Glass Horizon

Zefan Sramek has been recording as Precipitation for over a decade, but Glass Horizon is his first full-length vinyl edition. It follows a string of cassette, CD-R, and digital releases, with (as far as we can tell) a solitary 12”.

Indian Wells ~ No One Really Listens to Oscillators

No one really listens to oscillators, claims Indian Wells.  Okay, we’ll take that as a challenge.  The title track, like many of Pietro Iannuzzi’s pieces, starts with a recognizable melody, then gently mutates.  This is a common theme in trance, which nudges listeners
