Lionel Marchetti - Inland Lake (le lac intérieur) (CD)
2023
forthcoming
The new alchemical collaboration between Australian chamber ensemble Decibel, and French music concrète composer Lionel Marchetti.
Aviva Endean - Moths & Stars (CD)
2023
forthcoming
Australian composer and clarinetist Aviva Endean has developed an impressive capacity for creating work that merges intense control (of breath, of instrument, of composition) and a willingness to allow the music to lead. On Moths & Stars, her second solo work, she charts out a sound world that is equal parts timbre and tone, placing sounds relationship to space as a paramount focus for her pieces.
 Phauss - Nya Sverige - Nothing But The Truth (book + CD)
2023
forthcoming
The recording from Carl Michael Von Hausswolff and Erik Pauser's tumultuous and inspiring tour of the USA in 1991, with a book tracing the adventure and documenting the context of the time.
 Phauss - Audiodrome (book + CD)
2023
forthcoming
Two discreet works by Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Erik Pauser that sit somewhere between field recording, chance composition and experimental soundscape.
Lawrence English - Viento (CD + book)
2022
In 2010, Lawrence English made field recordings in Patagonia. You can hear abandoned buildings, lone trees folded over in fields of tundra-like grasses, quivering road signs, wailing fences and other objects shaken into life by the wind. In the booklet, the sounds are accompanied by pictures.
Mike Cooper - Oceans Of Milk And Treacle (book + CD)
2022
Oceans Of Milk And Treacle is a soundtrack for an otherwise silent film. The title of the album, and of course the film, is borrowed from Mike Cooper's late friend Fred Hardy's book The Religious Culture of India – Power, Love and Wisdom, considered to be one of the most important books on the subject.
Steve Roden - Oionos (livre + CD)
2022
An evocative musical tribute to Greek architect and painter Dimitris Pikionis, based on field recordings and small "poor" objects such as tin whistles, music boxes and toy harmonicas: a meditative, whirring, vibrating and suspended sound piece, both "environmental" and particularly musical.
Eugene Ughetti - Array (vinyl LP)
2022
(last copies available!)
Array expresses the experience of a remote Antarctic research station through the convergence of sound, site and performance. The result is an immersive and affective experience of the spaces, protocols and conditions comprising the bracing polar environment.
David Toop - Breathing Spirit Forms (CD + book)
2022
A series of in situ improvisations on Mount Tamborine in Australia.
Marina Rosenfeld - Index (CD + book)
2022
An investigation of dubplate decay and the tactile relationship to the disc.
David Shea - The Thousand Buddha Caves (CD)
2021
sold out
David Shea's The Thousand Buddha Caves explores his deep and continuous interest in the nexus of eastern and western musical forms. The recording charts his life long fascination with the caves and their connection to sound, ritual and Buddhist teachings. The record transposes those interests and is an evocation to the mythologies spinning forth from the caves.
