Etudes Vol. 1 by Petridisch & VI by five Bubble criteria (Release date: 2 Sept 22)

Categories: Releases

Beyond happy to welcome Petridisch to the superpolar Taïps artist roster. Besides his musical output, Thor is known for running the fish prints label and his involvement in Ilya S’s I Heart Noise  ihrtn.net (until 2020). Both are an intrinsic part of the Boston underground. I sincerely hope that you will be as captivated by Petridisch’s (anti-)etudes as much as I am. Contemporary classical? Minimal music? Maybe, but certainly the Petridisch way: 

Etudes Vol. 1 (C-20), a red transparent C-20 EP featuring six tracks, is yours for 6.50 €. Please also do read Petridisch’s extensive and very interesting liner notes.

Today’s other (pre-)release of the day is five Bubble criteria’s VI. It is, or better: has become a side project of bleed Air. VI could actually have been a bleed Air album, but it somehow drifted away from the usually more experimental (vintage) electronic approach during the recording process … and features some rather longform tracks built with experimental guitar (mainly the Fender Jaguar Baritone VI – hence the title), sparse analogue electronics, tape effects and spoken word in various forms, thanks to the always amazing Chip Perkins and a first appearance in this regard by Robin Barnick. Even Modelbau’s there, kindly letting me use one of his recordings for ‘Aether Aleatorica‘.

VI, a beautiful fosfo orange, transparent C-31 album is yours for 7.50 € + postage.

Chorchill – Ruhrpott Diver [Cassingle 23]

Categories: Releases

Chorchill revisits his 2020 album Nachtfisch (for Cologne fellow label Strategic Tape Reserve) and gives two tracks the post-minimalism treatment.

RUHRPOTT DIVER is a remix and sequel of and to FLOODED RUHRPOTT, while MODERN TAVLA (remix of BLEEDING INTO FALL) sheds some light on the backgammon playing habits of mythical Ruhrpott figure Apel Okuyan on who the NACHTFISCH album is centered around. Chorchill is an electronic music project by Matthias Cingoez on MIDI, synthesizer, sounds, acoustic bass and aerophone. Minimalistic and melodic pieces influenced by the softer side of Krautrock and film music.
