In June 2016, the great outdoors music festival Echos asked Ernest Bergez aka Sourdure to produce a series of “mantras” set to be diffused in between each concert of the twenty-four hours event taking place in the french Alpes. These pieces were played on the festival’s gigantic speakers/ horns system in the afternoon, evening, night, morning, noon… and reverberated fully in the rocky valley. This triple vinyl edition gathers the field-recording-like captures of the tracks delivered once again through the system later that year by Ernest Bergez with the help of Frédéric Bernier, Joachim Brissaud and Julien Dessailly. A cosmic soundscape journey, to be played at maximum volume!
Released in cooperation with Standard in-Fi, Desastre and Mental Groove.
Spemakh is a surprisemusic-group from Germany. Using a wide range of homemade and custombuilt wind- and percussioninstruments, aswell as viola, doublebass, voice-noise, guitar, objects and miniature-electronics, the band is aiming for a radical play with uncertainty, involving humour, gesture and collective surprise.
Sisto Rossi might became the keystone of the post industrial experimental/noise scene of the Ruhr Area. Originally from Tampa, Florida he appeared in western Germany around 2001, with plenty of energetic and creative live performances under several aliases. Also involved in label and concert activities during all this years, he is one of a kind in the so called Ruhr Area ever since. His work is focused on the research for sounds from gear, which he is also building by himself, and the possibilities of body experience through sound and room. As a result, Sisto creates a diverse universe of performances, depicting his personal physical reactions and thoughts about material and environment with his music.
On My Dungeon My Rules, recorded during 2018, Sisto makes use of different styles, moods and sound sources. A whole album related to his past and present. Its telling a story and like its Sistos kind of thing, its obviously a horror story. The title says everything.
