RhaD – METAMUSIC (CD, Album) / Buy →

    RHaD (Research for Historical Audio Documents) is a side project of Raffaele Pezzella (better known as Sonologyst). What Pezzella brings us here is a concrete example of something of what I have always believed – that ALL sound is music, whatever its source (radio transmissions, telephonic conversations, hi-fi test signals, old and forgotten documentaries, unknown field recordists). More than that, there is something else that goes beyond the simple creation of seemingly random sound collages; there is no doubt that here we have the uncovering of secret worlds and other realities, existences parallel to ours and yet separated by vast temporal and spatial distances. Here we have recordings and found sounds that have been manipulated in such a way as to render their contexts irrelevant and meaningless. Subtle concatenations of sound and substance, mood and context, in some instances creating a sense of otherness, that what we’re hearing are broadcasts from dimensions and realities that are not the one we live in. It’s exactly like trying to tune into a specific station on a vintage radio set but you don’t quite know where it is: as you turn the dial this way and that, you catch glimpses of other lives and other existences playing out just like your own. They are of our world and yet not part of it either. These six “metasonic” messages from seemingly emanate from an unknown Otherwhere and that alone will entice us to listen further and more deeply, in the hope of catching something that will peel back the layers and give us what we’ve yearned for. And that, I think, is where the true beauty lies in this album.

  • Los Sonidos del Rito

    Desde 2006 y a lo largo de los últimos quince años, el Incubismo surge y resurge de la mezcla de elementos estéticos, filosóficos y culturales que flotan y vuelan sobre un humus contradictorio y extraño. Su misión es desfigurar y transfigurar símbolos, ideas y objetos de la anodina cotidianeidad.

    El Incubismo es una meta y un proceso. Objeto fractal. Grimorio fallido.

    El Incubismo fue, es y será.

    «Los Sonidos del Rito» es un compendio y un inquietante legado de quince años de Incubismo, interpretado por escultores sonoros como Fluor (Fuente Luminica Universal Oscuridad Recíproca), Darío Martínez, Djinn7 y Avral. Sus obras habitan promiscuamente con los textos incubistas de Diego Arandojo.

    Paisajes postindustriales, música concreta, electrónica experimental, ruidismo y atisbos de post-rock y shoegaze. Cada pista significa una comunión con la suciedad y la trascendencia. Cada sonido y cada palabra reflejan la monstruosidad que un incubo seductor y horrendo impregna en el incauto testigo / oyente / lector de la obra incubista.

    Una cruel invitación a descender, gozar y sufrir.

    Arte como Rito.
    Magia y Estética.

    Since 2006 and over the last fifteen years, Incubismo arises and resurfaces from the mixture of aesthetic, philosophical and cultural elements that float and fly on a contradictory and strange humus. Its mission is to disfigure and transfigure symbols, ideas and objects of nondescript everyday life.

    Incubismo is a goal and a process. Fractal object. Failed grimoire.

    Incubismo was, is and will be.

    «Los Sonidos del Rito» (The Sounds of the Rite) is a compendium and a disturbing legacy of fifteen years of Incubismo, performed by sound sculptors such as Fluor (Fuente Luminica Universal Oscuridad Recíproca), Darío Martínez, Djinn7 and Avral. Their works inhabit promiscuously with the incubist texts of Diego Arandojo.

    Post-industrial landscapes, concrete music, experimental electronic, noise and glimpses of post-rock and shoegaze. Every track means a communion with dirt and transcendence. Every sound and every word reflect the monstrosity that a seductive and horrendous incubus impregnate in the unsuspecting witness / listener / reader of the incubist work.

    A cruel invitation to descend, enjoy and suffer.

    Art like Rite.
    Magick and Aesthetics.
