Valentina Magaletti & Julian Sartorius ~ Sulla Pelle

Valentina Magaletti and Julian Sartorius’ first collaborative record begins with the frantic, indiscernible rattling of high-frequency objects fighting for space atop a series of damp thumps. Over three minutes these thumps align as the two drummers clack, rattle, and stomp

David Watson and Tony Buck ~ Ask the Axes

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
