Suzanne Ciani: previously unreleased Buchla album from '69
EM News Poster: Bert - Date: Sat Jun 15, 2019 1:18 pm
Suzanne Ciani "Flowers of Evil" LP

All too often, the history of avant-garde and experimental music has been authored to reflect a hyper-masculine point of view - obscuring the truth, and with it, the remarkable innovations and contributions made by woman from across the globe. Fortunately, through reissues and processes of reappraisal, this has begun to change, allowing seminal artists like Éliane Radigue, Pauline Oliveros, Laurie Spiegel, Daphne Oram, Delia Derbyshire, Annea Lockwood, Christina Kubisch and many others, to take centre stage - finally celebrated for their groundbreaking work.

Among the most important of these is Suzanne Ciani a figure who, from the 1960s on, has stood at the vanguard of electronic innovation, experimentation, and musical thought.

Widely celebrated for her ambient efforts during the 1980s, until recently, her early, radical works had remained almost entirely unheard. Luckily, this has begun to change, via Finders Keepers’ incredible, dedicated effort to the composer’s unissued, archival works. First there was Logo Presentation Reels 1985, followed by Buchla Concerts 1975, and Help, Help, The Globolinks!, entirely rewriting the broad understanding of her contributions and historical importance. Now, from Finders Keepers once again, we have yet another stunning LP from her archives - Flowers of Evil, created on her Buchla system in 1969, and never intended for commercial release.

Born in 1946, and classically trained on the piano, during the late 1960s Suzanne Ciani, following her meeting of Don Buchla, dove radically afield - first working on Buchla’s system at Mills College, studying acoustics, psychoacoustics, and computer music, and eventually becoming employed at the legendary San Francisco Tape Music Center, while she saved money to buy her own Buchla 200 - ultimately becoming the central tool in her practice for many years to come.

Back from a short and exciting vacation and we go all in to the beat. Yes, we relish some soundbreaking features on this edition, real diamonds of its own. So let's put some pressure to your speakers as if we are going to grow some diamonds. We had some natural beats recently as well, i.e. thunder and rain pouring down on us. Also making one's heart jump a bit, but not as fine as when the soul dances to the rhythm of human making. Enjoy some nice rhythmic electronic music with tracks by KUNI (Coalesce), Spintribe (Phantoms), Osiris4 (Black Diamonds), ATOEM (Voltage Controlled Time), Protuberance (Recollections Vol. 3).

Life is sound at the beat on

Yours, Stefan

Etherfysh - Ochre (New Album)
EM News Poster: Etherfysh1 - Date: Sat May 18, 2019 12:06 pm
Sonically different from previous Etherfysh albums. Ochre is the result of a series of single session recordings rendered during April 2019. Bristling with an earthier darker sound palette Ochre invokes a kosmische-electronic journey through percolating sequences, drones, string machine/mellotron and synthi layers. And space. Lots of space!
