This album is a masterpiece! Based on and initially conceived for being an alternative soundtrack for the science-fiction movie Metropolis, by Fritz Lang, the movements have complex and original arrangements. A mixture of orchestral elements with glitch, soft synth beds and spoken words, urban and cinematographic atmosphere… Each song has a rich diversity of sounds and moods, but are well connected under a common theme that excites your imagination!

Ok, no more written words, take your time and enjoy!

Long time since last post, but I’m slowly crawling out again. The reason is the nice compilation you are seeing above, The Silent Ballet IX. A few days ago I was attracted to hiddenplacemusic, via twitter, and read his review of this compilation. It was just what I need, some quiet delicate ambient songs!

I highly recommend the artists featured in this release! I specially liked the tunes Mehr als alles andere (Bersarin Quartett) and Telling Time (Redhooker). There is also a song from Bosques de mi Mente, which appeared here some time ago.

So, enjoy the songs!

This release has a unique combination of industrial, dark, gothic, rock and electronica that could please even open-minded soft-music adepts. The music is intense and vocals are very expressive, creating a complex atmosphere based on distorted guitars and synths. Looking at their Last.fm scrobbles and internet archive downloads they seem to be quite popular nowadays! Worth listening!

They have been sitting on my drafts since Jan 16th, so my apologies for taking so long to post.

  1. Gesenktes Haupt//Geschlossene Augen (mp3|ogg)
  2. Can you hear these footsteps coming upstairs at night? (mp3|ogg)
  3. Perfection is the way it’d go but it doesn’t (mp3|ogg)
  4. Just the fallen again (mp3|ogg)
  5. Encode the apology inside the lies (mp3|ogg)
  6. The course of true love never did run smooth, my dearest (mp3|ogg)
  7. One and other stab wounds destroying a life (mp3|ogg)
  8. Crashed into a spiralworld (mp3|ogg)
  9. You’d better watch out in a forest after midnight (mp3|ogg)
  10. Alles ist gesagt (version 2007) (mp3|ogg)

The Pluteus Trip!

Pluteus larvaPlutei are born in the seawater. They represent a specific life stage (larva) of some marine invertebrates, the Echinoderms. Most of them are less than 1mm long, so tiny that inertial forces are dominated by viscous forces of the water. Just imagine if air was honey and we had to go for a walk… Plutei can swim and feed in this environment using their long arms and cilia. However, Plutei are ephemeral. They swim (and eat) for weeks or maybe months, before something else takes place. Currents can take them really far away from the place they were born. Millions of Plutei are born at once. How many would survive? How many would be thousands of miles away? How many would get proper food and not be eaten? Plutei carry the tissue of adults inside them. The food they eat, goes to adult tissues. In the end, the adult in formation takes over the larval body and the Pluteus is gone.

Plutei are part of the ocean’s hidden life. Organisms we can’t see easily, but that certainly got in between our toes when walking along the beach, or were swallowed during a swim… Its crazy and different “life” inspired the first compilation of songs from ccNeLaS, The Pluteus Trip. Download and listen, hope you like it! Go to the compilation page or continue below.

STEEP – Your Reality

STEEPYour Reality
(by-sa)

bit torrent and eMule | ogg | mp3

Recently I organized my music collection and created some playlists to help me out. The consequence was the resurrection of many albums that got lost with time. An example was LEGO, from last post. Your reality is another one. A very sharp rock album, nice energy and textures! STEEP‘s track Let me go was featured in netBloc 5, probably where I first heard of them!

ps: Some biology slowed me down here, but everything should be back to normal in a few days.

My First Trumpet – Frerk

My First Trumpet – Frerk

My First Trumpet

mp3s zip file

I first listened to Frerk after reading Wundertunes nice comments about it. The songs stuck into my mind. I specially like how elements fit together and lead you throughout the song. In the same way as an inspired speech clears up a point of view.

Celebrating the tenth release of aerotone and the third year of 12rec, these netlabels decided to collaborate releasing a special CDr-edition of Frerk (also blogged here).

Ok, don’t miss these songs…!

Very creative lo-fi rock band! Nice melodies and video game tunes, for those into it. There is a summary here:

eine gitarre.
ein gameboy.
ein c64.
zwei typen. | two guys
space invaders samples.
lagerfeuergeschrabbel. | something like relaxing in a campfire
gameboygedudel. | spending time with gameboy
auch gesang mit dabei. | sing-along
lowtech.
lo-fi.
micro.
porn.

They have a nice website with videos, music and a lot of stuff to buy (including the sad robot gear). Of course you can’t miss the opportunity to see them live!

Interesting compositions. The whole set is fluid with lots of transitions and minimalist mood changes throughout the songs.
