From 1967 through 1970 my father, composer Harold Shapero, was director of the Brandeis University electronic music studio. The studio was equipped with a Buchla 100 modular synthesizer, which was at the time the state of the art. Though I was not a Brandeis student, but still in high school, my father allowed and encouraged me to work with the Buchla in the studio. I started working there when I was 14 and continued until I was 17. The portrait you see of me with the Buchla was taken (by my...

From Spain, this multi experimentalist dares walk on the dark side of sounds as one would go shopping at the supermarket. His varried pallet of sounds has matured much since the establishement of Jazznoize in 2005. Sergio Sánches Nicolás uses field recordings transforming them a lot or at all, technicians of loop, audible errors, or the slow sounds like pure example of transformation of the means. If youâve never heard the eerie sounds of this Spanish meister then let this opportunity...

Mike Metlay's body of work has always included abstract noisescapes, a passion he's enjoyed for nearly three decades. (A recent example is JNN014, The Redundancy Of Suicide by mindSpiral.) Mike's main noisescaping device is "Thing One", the Oberheim Xpander analog modular synthesizer he has been playing for 25 years now. Currently, as for the past 10 years or more, he uses Thing One primarily for self-modulating noise textures that can be manipulated in real time with broad control...

The twelve pieces on this album reflect an ongoing interest in the temporal processes underlying musical creation from two apparently contrasting yet ultimately similar musical contexts. Post-modernist, systems-based pieces for traditional classical ensembles stand side-by-side with more static electronic works. In the former category the obvious reference points might be the work of Steve Reich and other minimalists but in contrast to the extended time-scales operative in such work, the pieces...

Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings. The source recordings were mangled, manipulated, abused and violated, in some cases beyond recognition, to create 18 distinctly different interpretations ranging from minimal drone, to noise, to electronica.

This album journeys into the physics of sound and its electronic behaviour, frantically trying to control that which lies beyond our touch. Like the chaos and unpredictability of nature, so this album shares of the deeper layers of life.

For the longest time I’ve admired the works of AAGSF very much.

Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance...

Digital data has a lifecycle all its own. And oddly enough, the digital lifecycle mirrors the organic. Every digital bit of data experiences: being born; fighting to survive within the world where it finds itself; interfacing with other data or with the physical world; and then inevitably--it ends. It is deleted, forgotten, or lost. Like all organic life, data has a beginning and therefore, at some point, must also experience an ending. The experimental stream of sound on this release is an...

Nothing reacts. Juste une bougie. Et la nuit supplémentaire. Seule une toute petite tortue s’est retournée. The begginnig of nowhere. Quelqu’un l’a vu s’étaler de toute part. The smoke flew through the window, without a sound. Les écailles rirent. In a deep and thud swamp of stars. Ces escaliers interminables rirent. Holding the coulds in one hand. How to get there ? Des lueurs encore. Des désirs encore. L’as tu vu passer ? Inside and between a dot. The past of a print. Again....

“I live and make music in a flat. We’ve got a lot of traffic noise. I have wanted to use that for a virtual album for quite some time. The album was born by recording from midnight till seven in the morning. The album consists of live tracks. The first four are made entirely from the 7-hour recording (all encoded at 256kbs). The last track is a live recording with additional instruments (encoded at 192kbs). “ All compositions by Respirator Artwork: Juneau Check out our JNN home

One of the prolific artists of late presents an album full of glitch, experimentalism and electronic rhythms and melodies. Not only does he create some awesome ambient; these experimental series are a treat to the ears.

The color of the sky at 5:57 a.m.; the smell of a dormant furnace, revived; the feel of dusty boxes. Bells, blips, and boooooms. Precipitation is inspiration. Closets are emptied --- long-hidden treasure awaits. Circuit-bent instruments, analog synths, abused vinyl, and field recordings serve as the orchestra on this release. Best enjoyed on chilly nights in low lighting. 'This is the very first of Khate releases to be of free nature' We at JNN have been long time fans of her work, and are ever...
