Automatisme Feat. Thisquietarmy
Station


[LTH006]


Station spun from a feeling of suspension, held in between two locations, two states. That flickering in the existence that makes us feel alive, connected or isolated, and at the same time opens all our senses to the world.

Using a limited quantity of instruments and pushing them to their limit, Station feels at times extreme and uncomfortable, other times, familiar and comforting. Automatisme’s random generators confer a sense of instability, as travelling to the unknown, something new to be discovered at every corner. It opens the mind to spontaneity, forces us to accept imperfection as profound truth, and reminds us not to hold on to anything. In this cyclic existence, nothing is fixed in time, nor in space.

Thisquietarmy uses his unique signature approach to creating expansive soundscapes, consisting of feeding his electric guitar as a single tone generator into a myriad of processed effect pedals, tweaking its parameters and combining them in ways to produce otherworldly sounds, then sampled in real time through a series of loop-sampler devices, mixed and pitched to create chaotic washes of noise from which fragile melodies are being extracted. The result used for this piece became a menacing cloud of minimal drone, slowly growing into saturated waves of vapor static that are being carried into several distinctive ebb and flow parts.

The first collaboration between these two musicians, Station seamlessly unifies two colossal universes.

Martin Dumais
Ferrochrome


[LTH005]


After engaging in a long history of collaborations (Les Jardiniers, Aun and Stärker to name a few), Martin Dumais leaves the pseudonyms behind to reveal the simplicity of his own name. And here, simplicity is key. Drifting between genres, Martin blends his myriad of influences into layered soundscapes. Ferrochrome is an alloy of unbalanced compositions, textured melodies and muddy undertones. Using the long established codes to better dissociate itself from the traditions, it paradoxically pays them hommage in every single sound.

Partly recorded on an old VHS, the musician was inspired by the fragility and unpredictability of the magnetic tape. This feeling of evanescence permeates at each listening; the hushing of the tape reminding us that nothing lasts. Evoking a quest into a future past, Ferrochrome is a mood more than a narrative. A feeling of perpetual motion, the pulsation of the bass remains constant, sometimes at the forefront, sometimes almost unperceivable. The engine never stops, advancing forward inexorably and leaving an impression of unsettlement.

T. Gowdy
Vitrify Kate


[LTH004]


Inspired by the relationship between memory and reality,
Vitrify Kate attempts to express the significance that memory has on the perception of reality. A stored memory can be seen as a pane of glass in the mind. As a new memory is added, older ones recede further back into the rows of recollection. The new memory acts as a lens through which distant memories are perceived. The perception of an older memory is distorted by the addition of a new one. The past becomes an actively changing element. The past is not a static place. Memories are continually distorted as new “panes” of experience are constructed.

The creation of the material on Vitrify Kate is in line with the concept of vitrified memory. Musical pieces are intentionally left over time to harden (vitrify) in to impressions in the mind, some in whole pieces, some in broken elements. After a period has passed, memory is used as a tool to forge new interpretations of the compositions. Each attempt to reconstruct the vitrified impressions yields a pattern of unique distortions and therefore no one true version can exist.

La Naegleria
Naegleriasis


[LTH003]


When searching for inspiration, La Naegleria is not afraid to look into the morbid details of our environment. But instead of being macabre, his compositions express rather the peculiar beauty in the forces of nature and how the infinitely small and inoffensive in appearance can overcome the immense and powerful.

Naeglerisis casts the human body in an unfamiliar role. Through the perspective of the amoeba, it is slowly and inexorably contaminated. As the body becomes inhabited by this parasite from the inside, the mind gets barricaded by repetitive loops and flooded by noise. 

Despite its heavy theme, Naegleriasis brings the listener to a moment of peace. An act of surrender, a feeling of hypnosis; it is music stripped down from the artifice and brought back to its fundamental elements.
