"The Birth of Primary Cinema from the Spirit of Sound - Feature Article
by Frank Rothkamm" (feature) Primary Cinema remains cinema, it is not
painting or staged photography. It is comprehended as a sequence of
images with sound which ultimately constructs its meaning. It
de-emphasizes change and reduces bright-ness and distributes events on a
galactic scale, but despite its apparent emptiness it remains true
cinema as the marriage of projected images and sound in space and time.

"The Gyres, Between Nowhere and Goodbye, The End of Everything" (feature)
Cathal Rodgers moonlights from his grubby guitarings with Irish
doom-mongers Wreck Of The Hesperus as Wereju. Moonlight is apposite in
application to Wereju, less evil more eerie twin, drawing out long rays
of wild half-lit nightshade shimmer over grey evacuated fields, a sound
described by the artist as "ageless drifting melancholia of an abandoned

"A Ritual Which is Incomprehensible (to the smile of Pauline Oliveros) -
Claudio Parodi" (review) The second in an ongoing series of conceptual
works by Claudio Parodi sourcing and manipulating music from Tiziano
Milano's Suoni CD (2005), not so much to remix but as staple material
for processing in the studio. This time as with the last, the album is
dedicated to a well known sound artist, and Pauline Oliveros is the
chosen one on this occasion.

"Bedside Stories - Taub" (review)
Bedside Stories is the new release by Taub, aka Me Raabenstein and
Harold Nono. It is a work of haunting sonic landscapes and fragmented
realities, glued together with precision and beauty. It will lull you
into worlds of spacious minimal sounsdcapes and sonic cinematic
journeys, which constantly resolve back to a single sound event or just
review by Roger Mills

"Document 2 - Sevenhourgerm" (review)
Document 2 by Sevenhourgerm aka Matthew Atkins is a CDR including nine
experimental tracks released on the Minimal Resource Manipulation label.
Found sounds and noise are crafted into varying degrees of coherency,
with rhythm and melody flirting at the edge of perception.

"Electronic Drifting: The Music of Richard Lainhart" (review)
Many contemporary musicians take their inspiration from natural
processes. Richard Lainhart's musical models come from clouds, flames
and waves, whose nebulous and ever shifting formations are the catalyst
for his beautiful electronic works.

"Imperfect Silence - Various" (review)
Imperfect Silence is a radical collaboration between artists working
together purely online. Global boundaries and cultural differences make
way for free jazz and diverse sonic improvisation, as Phil Hargreaves
edits together the material to provide a personal narrative of Cadavre

"Italian Noise Label Dokura Serves up 3 Mini Cdrs" (review)
Dokura is an Italian noise label that releases limited edition tapes, 3
inch CDRs and the occasional vinyl lp from a variety of international
artists. With 10 releases to date, the little label seems to be aiming
at noise of the instrumental variety swinging closer to the lo-fi dark
ambient drone.

"Lost Hilde - Stray Ghost" (review)
The releases on Highpoint Lowlife switch genres like someone channel
surfing through alternative music TV. Lost Hilde adds yet another
station to the programming, and an engrossing one at that. Everything
begins as a smooth midnight cruise through glitched and looped synthetic

"Sympathetic Vibration - Marcus Jones" (review)
Often, recordings exist as complete works in themselves, or as documents
or mementos of a live performance. Sympathetic Vibration is one of a
rapidly expanding body of works that do not fit easily into either
category, blurring the boundaries between recorded materials and live
event. Stacey Sewell chats to its creator, phonographer and sound
designer Markus Jones.
