Sound Bytes – review

Headphone Commute did a lovely review of “Time Woke Up in Darkness – excerpts vol. 2” released on Time Released Sound.

During CPH:STAGE 2015 we released a DIY under the radar 10″ vol. 1 sold exclusively during the performance .. there is still some copies left – soon sold on bandcamp.

… with a few analogue sounding synth bleeps and microscopic clicks that seemingly become a rhythm, Time Woke Up In Darkness is so much more than just a set of excerpts – it’s a delightful treasure trove of sounds to be dug through slowly on a rainy night.

Time Woke Up – Review

A really nice review (in Italian) of our new release on Time Released Sound (US) on Music Won’t Save You.

A practical approach and often ghostly in the outcome, “Woke Up In Time excerpts Darkness Vol 2” is a creative realism, applied to a microcosm of notes and noises, suspended and flickering in a darkness broken down and rebuilt in almost a ‘ time-weighted electro-acoustic joints.” – Raffaello Russo

Upcoming London shows

A two day residency at Iklectic Art-lab is confirmed for April the 23rd and 24th. The residency will mark the release of our new album. Both editions will be available at the concerts.

The line-up is amazing featuring Time Released Sound artist Wil Bolton (UK) and The Inventors of Aircraft (UK) on Saturday and Matawan (UK) on Sunday.

Additional info: Saturday and Sunday.

Our new release on Time Released Sound (US) is now available on bandcamp via Time Released Sound. Also available in the US through Aquarius Records .. two versions! – a super deluxe, limited to just 65 copies, is housed in a collaged, folded spread of vector drawings, with every page drawn on, numbers and letters and symbols are rubbed and scratched into patterns on the various drawings. Each panel is folded into eighths, creating pockets containing a textured insert printed on old educational material, the cd in an envelope, and a numbered tag, all in a square, hand stamped translucent envelope. Then of course, there’s the less limited, less expensive regular version, which comes in a digipak, with a much simplified version of the above described artwork.

The release will come in two versions. The first limited edition version in an edition of just 65 copies comes as a collaged and folded double page spread of vector drawings. Each page has then been extensively modified and uniquely “drawn on” with sheets of vintage Letraset lettering. Abstracted numbers, letters and symbols are rubbed, scratched and scraped into patterns on the drawings in red, white and black. Each panel is then folded into 8ths, creating two pockets containing a textual insert printed on antique educational material, an original fragment of Letraset to rub onto the artwork, or wherever you’d like, yourself, and an envelope with a factory pressed disc and a hanging numbered tag, all within a 6 inch square, outer hand stamped translucent envelope. Graphic design by Colin Herrick (TRS).

Mastered by Wil Bolton.

“Originally composed for a theatrical production, Danish duo Vektormusik unfurl an ethereal, otherworldly sound that is loosely piano based, but for much of the record, the piano disappears beneath a field of static (or never appears at all). Blurred expanses of glitch and squelch are smoothed into softly staticky transmissions, laced with hushed melodies, cricket like chitter, processed guitars, whispered strings, billowy low end thrum, gristled hum, all in a state of near stasis, with buried rhythms looped and softly pulsing, smeared into indistinct, barely there throbs, the surrounding atmosphere a bleary-eared field of gauzy shimmer, shifting easily from mysterious moody murk, to crystalline collage, to crackly, abstract, almost digi-dub, but all of those sounds presented intimately, and sparsely, occasionally building to mini-crescendos, but more often than not, seemingly suspended in some strange, simple soundworld, all of their lowercase sounds woven into a dreamlike web, a sonicscape that manages to be mysterious, cinematic and sublime.” – Andee Connors (Aquarius Records)
