Phonophani – Kreken

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Kom tilfeldig over denne platen på Apollon. Dette er fjerde platen til Espen Sommer Eide som står bak Phonophani. Minimalistisk electronica ispedd norske folketoner. Et brokete lydbilde som tidvis går mot støy. Anbefales.

Infernal Proteus – A Musical Herbal

I finally got hold of Infernal Proteus – A Musical Herbal a release from The Ajna Offensive. This four cds and 96 pages hardcover book release is just magnificent, with music thats spans from Folk to Rhythmic, Pop to Gothic, Ambient, Electronic, Noise. And not to mention the artwork of the book.

Each of the 40 artists/bands got to pick their own plant, tree or herb and make a song to honour it. Then they where given two pages, one to make artwork for their own plant and one page to describe themselves.
