Frac Franche-Comté – Collection Sound Houses
This LP draws on twenty years of archives recorded by Charles Pennequin on mini-cassettes. Spontaneous recordings of his readings, unpublished solitary monologues, vocal and sound experiments, ambient sounds were selected and edited in the studio by the poet, and thought of as a global composition that goes through different registers and eras of his poetry.

Tochnit Aleph

Sub Rosa
New compositions for ancient Korean instrument: the Geomungo.

Sub Rosa
Limited edition of a recording confronting the virtuosity of two bassists: Bill Laswell's black trance track Bass Terror Tetragrammaton faces Nik Bullen's hypnotic composition Nocturnal Crawl. The two pieces answer each other strangely, like two sides of the same hidden anxiety.

Tarab is the result of live recordings captured during the group's 2017 Al-'An! Tour, which led them to Europe and Canada, and finally Beirut.

Sub Rosa
The third and final LP report of the Belgian electronic improvised music band from the eighties. Recorded and mixed between 1980 and 1981, Next One's Called… features unreleased songs only.

Sub Rosa
New edition of the Belgian band's third album from 1981: inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's universe, Ceux du Dehors is a key release for the band. It sometimes suggests a darker and more complex version of the motorik minimalism of classical music contemporaries Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Limited clear/red vinyl edition.

The new album from Justin C. Meyers, the American experimental electro composer, artist, and head of the Sympathy Ltd. label.

35 years after the release of their critically acclaimed albumVibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth the British dadaist group Hastings of Malawi have released a new album—an epic sound poem entitled Visceral Underskinnings.

Never released before recordings from Logos Foundation live sessions in Brussels, on May 7, 1977. Toop and Burwell's association, which ran during the seventies, was a good mixture of musical decomposition through free improvisation, bioacoustics, environmental sound, raw musics, anthropology, and esoterism.
