David Watson and Tony Buck ~ Ask the Axes

Take a deep breath. The bagpipe is an ancient achievement: an idealised human lung, which need never pause its exhalation. Its music is legato: it works on an unbroken ground of successive notes, controlled via the tireless “chanter”, emitted through

Mats Edén / Stefan Klaverdal ~ annual growth rings

As late summer tilts to early autumn, Mats Edén and Stefan Klaverdal‘s annual growth rings makes a perfect accompaniment.  The album speaks of birth and death, of cycles, of letting go.  The perspective of trees differs from that of humans: the events

Microtub ~ Chronic Shift

Microtub’s proposition is unique: to record, inside an empty water tower, two musical pieces in just intonation performed by a tuba trio – hence the microtonal reference of the group’s name. There’s a few timely interventions by analog synthesizers (one
