Muzan Editions

The fine folks at Muzan Editions describe themselves as “a small label, based in Nara, Japan, focusing on ambient and experimental sound and music”.
Their first batch is being released soon, and I am proud to say that it inludes a new album by yours truly, titled “The Work Of the Spider”.

Follow the label HERE.

Check out excerpts of the new album alongside some excellent sounds from Florian von Ameln and Hegira Moya HERE:

Symbols flyer

This album was made using glitches and loops mostly derived from recently unearthed recordings made in the early nineties. Old dusty tapes, disintegrating in the basemet for ages meet field recordings, samples from 78 rpm gramophone records with the odd drone and some instrumentation sprinkled on top. A quite bleak affair, where sludgy sounds hiss and squeek their way through the swamp, dragging along broken bones and ghosts found in the mud.
The CD-R version is limited to 40 copies, and comes with a xeroxed zine featuring a visualization of the symbols.
The download includes full quality front and back artwork and a PDF-version of the zine.

Check out the album HERE.
