    Format: CD, Album
    Country: Europe
    Released: 23 Oct 2017
    Style: Dark Ambient, Industrial, Experimental

    Far reaching pleasures will be at hand – Anemone Tube reveals a series of three CDs entitled “The Three Worlds: Allegory of Vanity / Forget Heaven / Vanity of Allegory”, referencing a cosmological treatise on the universe from the Theravada Buddhism of the 14th century, the subject matter of which is the description of three levels of existence of all beings and mythical creatures.

    This extensive retrospective release contains selected tracks from various tapes released between 1997 and 1999 – mostly rare and unavailable today – as well as yet unreleased tracks recorded between 1997 and 2013, a.o. outtakes from the “Death Over China” recordings, handpicked and recontextualized by Anemone Tube, representing the project’s roughest and most atmospheric material up to date, ranging from depressive ritual experimental ambient over dark rhythmic industrial soundscapes to whirlwind noise. Sharply mastered by Hunter Barr for a powerful, contemporary sound, each CD comes in a 6-panel digifile featuring beautiful photography by Dario Lehner.

    “The Three Worlds” is a work about transience on many levels, perfectly elucidated in the Buddhist Sutra “Far Reaching Pleasures”, “The three worlds are transient like clouds in autumn / Birth and death of all beings unfold like a dance / Their lives rush away… more

  • Lawrence English + Stephen Vitiello – Acute Inbetweens

    Label: Crónica
    Format: CD, Album
    Country: Portugal
    Released: 15 Mar 2011
    Style: Abstract, Drone, Experimental, Minimal

    Since their initial meeting in Australia during 2006, Stephen Vitiello (USA) and Lawrence English (AU) have enjoyed a long distance collaboration orbiting around the joint passion for field recordings and modular synthesis.

    Exploring the points of convergence and divergence between electricity and environment, the duet’s “Acute Inbetweens” is a collection of works derived from hazy environmental memory, imagined landscape and field recorded actualities. It’s a blurring mist of encountered spaces, recreated by means voltage controlled. Like the spatial inspiration that guides the record, “Acute Inbetweens” pace is tempered and during certain pieces borders on a sense of timelessness.

    Pieces such as “La Voix est absente” unfold with a pacing of the lauded opening Lotus flowers at Sinobazu-no-ike pond, individual elements revealing themselves in subtle arcs of sound, swelling into a rich harmonic whole. By contrast “Exposure in Relief” is a more robust and pulsing work in which micro melodies spiral into one another. “Acute Inbetweens”, sharp moments diffused in time.

  • Visions Of Darkness (In Iranian Contemporary Music)

    Label: Cold Spring ‎– CSR242CD
    Format: 2 × CD, Album, Compilation
    Country: UK
    Released: 25 Sep 2017
    Style: Dark Ambient, Drone, Experimental, Noise

    The simurgh is depicted in Iranian art as a winged creature in the shape of a bird, gigantic enough to carry off an elephant or a whale. It appears as a peacock with the head of a dog and the claws of a lion, sometimes however, also with a human face. Iranian legends consider the bird so old that it had seen the destruction of the world three times over. The simurgh learned so much by living so long that it is thought to possess the knowledge of all the ages. We hope this mythological benevolent creature could be a hope and a a guide in our dark times

    Country: Russia
    Released: 15 Mar 2017
    Style: Drone, Experimental, Noise

    Uhushuhu, Ogni Videniy and Lunar Abyss – these three projects from St. Petersburg are long active in the boundless creative field of noise ambient and drone psychedelia. This split release contains one studio track from each project and one long collaborative piece recorded live at the sleep concert “Dryoma-9” in September 2015.

    The boat of dreams carries us through complex soundscapes inhabited by a plethora of images. Natural organic sounds interwine with abstract synthesis drawing phantasmagoric paintings in our imagination. Electric noises and waves of unrestrained acoustic energy, the mysterious whisper of spirits and hoarse rumbling of a shaman, shards of memories and eventful illusions… This is definitely the music of bright colourful dreams!
