  • Richard Scott: Several Circles (Vinyl)

    Richard Scott: Sev...

    Richard Scott’s ‘Several Circles’ is a seamless blend of improvised performances and forensically detailed electronic music that bristles, writhes and grows like some mutated living organism. Recorded between 2013 and 2015 in both Manchester and Berlin, this vital new album is a combination of instant, improvised performances and highly structured acousmatic compositions that have been, in Richard’s own words, “microscopically edited, constructed, layered and mixed over many hours in the studio.” Far from being a dry, academic exercise, Richard’s music shower the ears with delicious and incessantly changing sound pools. Tracks like ‘Song for Ghosts’, ‘Noodles’ and ‘Remains’ showcase Scott’s …

  • Aukai: Aukai (Vinyl)

    Aukai: Aukai (Viny...

    In a lot of ways, Aukai’s self-titled debut is the sound of Markus Sieber bringing his career full circle. Having spent part of the ’90s playing rock music in East Germany, the composer/multi-instrumentalist then shifted his focus to acting, only to have music creep back into his life after a mind-altering move to Mexico. Aukai was born of his desire to create music that could work in tandem with film, video, theater and the visual arts. The compositions on the album also grew out of Sieber’s love affair with the ronrocco, a plucked string instrument from Argentina that Sieber first …

  • Mytrip: Filament (Vinyl)

    Mytrip: Filament (...

    Following last year’s Mytrip highly appreciated vinyl debut Empty, the Bulgarian ambient / drone artist is back with a long-anticipated full-length album. In Filament Mytrip is delving deeper into his raw and complex soundscapes. This time they are enriched by tense melodies, blurry rhythmic patterns and organic field recordings. Breathing on the thin borderline of ambient, drone and dub, Filament is Mytrip’s most emotionally and musically varying release so far. The record was written to be experienced live, thus it carries the signature aural harshness of the artist’s recent works. Combined with Mytrip’s immense love for drifting sonic environments Filament …

  • Ned Milligan: Continental Burns (Vinyl)

    Ned Milligan: Cont...

    The third album by Ned Milligan and the first to reach an audience beyond family and friends, Continental Burns is the result of getting reacquainted with the act of making music and diving into the experience of creating short films. Composed primarily over the summer of 2014, Continental Burns was created with two sides in mind. The first five tracks (which also score the video of the same name) share a certain kinship; the sixth complements what came before while departing from it at the same time. A lot of this music came out of Ned’s longstanding interest in repeating …

  • Robert Farrugia – Slow Morning (CD)

    Robert Farrugia &#...

    The album comes in a 6-Panel CD with pictures by Brian Young and includes a collaborative track with label head Warmth… ‘Slow Morning’ is the new album by maltese artist Robert Farrugia, after his first work for Archives ‘Tines’ and previous releases on Post Global Recordings and Assembly Field. His moving soundscapes and serene piano chords, mainly influenced on the styles of Hammock, Sigur Rós and Brian Eno, are also the essence of the sound that Archives is always looking for. Drone oriented ambient, with neo-classical elements.

  • Zoltan Ban: Meadow (CD)

    Zoltan Ban: Meadow...

    Zoltan Ban returns to Archives with a new dub-techno EP entitled ‘Meadow’.

    Deluxe version: comes in a modified anti-static bag strung with a 100 year old children’s game tag. Each individual package contains a uniquely mysterious, relabeled antique 5″, 78rpm record (not with music from this album on it, but quite seriously spooky when played at incorrect speeds, as we have found out ourselves), a vintage, mounted 1940’s photograph of a “freak” from an antique album of “freak show” ephemera, with original hand typed description of photo under credit sheet on backside. The cotton sleeved, factory pressed disc design is inspired and taken from a scan of one of these strange old …

  • Orghanon – Retrospectre (CD)

    Orghanon – Retro...

    Orghanon is a project founded by Sergio Calzoni, Italian producer and musician active since the nineties in various musical outfits (Alma Mater, Act Noir, Colloquio). Orghanon’s manifesto is to produce music with a strong cinematographic appeal, making use mainly of electronic equipment with sparse notes of acoustic instruments and electric guitars. Orghanon aims to blend melancholy with silence, depicting stark yet deeply emotional soundtracks for imaginary places. “Retrospectre”is a very personal exploration of childhood memories relived as ambient music soundscapes. Compared to the previous Orghanon’s work, making this album involved a more intimate and spontaneous approach during the writing process, …

  • France Jobin & Fabio Perletta – Mirror Neurons

    France Jobin &...

    Mirror neurons represent a distinctive class of cells that fire both when an animal executes an action and when it observes another individual performing the same action. Discovered by Italian neurophysiologist Giacomo Rizzolatti and his team at the University of Parma while doing a research on the neural representation of motor movements in monkeys, the precise function and influence of these neurons has become one of the most important topic in neuroscience. They have been linked to many behaviours and abilities, from empathy to learning by imitation and language acquisition, as well as implicated in conditions such as autism and …

  • Robert Crouch – Organs (CD)

    Robert Crouch R...

    The three works comprising ‘Organs’ were selected and edited from a year of recordings developed in collaboration with choreographer and artist Julie Tolentino in 2014. Three separate projects were documented through audio recordings of performances and rehearsals, as well as related field recordings. Each piece recalls a matrix of encounters between a specific body (or bodies) within a unique context, conducting and responding to sounds, both electronic and organic. The interplay of the soft tissue, sinew, bone and blood of the body-organ, pushing against/within/outside the sustained tones and synthetic expressions of the techno-organ. Each organ exists simultaneously alienated from, and …

  • Robert Curgenven – Climata (2xCD)

    Gatefold 2 x CD… ‘Climata’ is a new work by composer and sound artist Robert Curgenven comprised entirely of site-specific recordings captured in 15 of James Turrell’s Skyspaces, spanning 9 countries. Each of the individual recordings, with their quiet & slowly changing microtonal interventions made in-situ, interrogate and offer a specific document of weather, location and duration framed by the architecture of the Skyspace – a frame that blurs the distinction between interiority and exteriority – while allowing the physicality of the Skyspace to be subtly rendered audible. Turrell’s Skyspaces are a specifically proportioned chamber with an aperture in the …

Doron Sadja: Residuals (Limited Edition CD)

Limited edition CD with deluxe oversized sleeve and accompanying prints by the artist…

“Residuals” is a four movement, hyper-emotive, ultra-synthetic landscape. Doron’s first solo electronics release since 2003′s “a piece of string, a sunset” on 12k – and it’s in that same realm that his endlessly imaginative sound design shines brightest. Slowly lifting off from near silence into an ethereal vacuum of swirling cacophonies and multi-tonal noise, “Residuals” never lets go. Romantic synthesizer harmonies, extreme frequencies, spectral chord blasts, and ultra-high synthesized feedback combine to form structures so innately organic that it’s easy to forget that a human (or a computer, for that matter) had anything to do with it.

In the years since his last release, Doron has not been idle, in fact he’s been active across mediums: co-founding the West Nile (now “285 Kent”) performance space in Brooklyn, collaborating in the groups Symbol and Ganjatronics, exploring video and performance art in his gallery and installation work (see “The Slowest Kiss” and “Crybaby”, or his duo with Alfredo Marin “Alfi & Waldi” and their “Original S(t)IN(k)”). But what’s striking about Residuals is how singular, focused and exciting these sounds are – evocative of early Autechre mixed with Alva Noto plus a little Badalamenti new-age bliss… Each sound given space, each movement given the time it needs, blooming naturally and with purpose.

    “Piss Off! I’m not interested” I would have walked out the door, but had nowhere to go, and you knew it. Without belief, Without hope, Without love, There is nothing. I stand between two worlds. I would paint the release as dealing with the complexities and fragilities of close inter-personal relationships, when removed from the comforts of the established norms and place. The title track ‘Between two worlds’ describes the slow process of disintegration and fracturing of such ties. An initial period calm is replaced by chaotic episodes, shifting uncertainties that are represented by the layers of ambient noise, almost …

    This album has undoubtedly Ian Martin’s blueprint sound, but it is one in evolution. Whereas previous releases like ‘Intensions’ and ‘Mechanical Rain’ had a more fluid and languid feel, Ian is increasingly adopting a more musique concrete approach to his work. Using elements and sounds from his everyday life, Ian manipulates these to create both melody and, occasionally, a bass line. Moreover, songs like ‘Love Or Art’ or ‘Medusa’ contain touches of playfulness without losing mystique or underlying tension. The album draws you into a world of contrasts; dreamy landscapes and beauty on the one side, paranoïa and menace on …

    The shortest tale can leave the longest impression. Devourings collects a variety of stories – each its own piece but bound to the next by a broader, unifying theme: being enveloped, devoured, by a moment, an encounter, a political situation, an emotion – which connect with absolute potency. Be they over a handful of paragraphs or a spread of pages, these short – and shorter – stories linger with a palpable resonance. Devourings travels to many destinations, encompassing several scenarios and introducing myriad protagonists – and, frequently, antagonists. ‘Esthers’ follows a snaking murder plot set in 1940s Argentina; the malevolent …

    “There was a tradition in this parish that on All-Hallows’ Eve a Spirit announced from the altar the names of those who were doomed to die in the coming year. The Spirit was locally called Angelystor.” – Elias Owen, 1887 Estimated at 4,000 to 5,000 years old, the ancient yew in the churchyard of St. Digain, Llangernyw may be oldest living thing in the British Isles. It is strangely apt that such a long lived tree – immortal by comparison to our own lifespans – should grow next to a church reputed to be haunted by an ‘angel of death’, …

    Also spelled as ‘Enuma Elish’, Enûma Eliš is the Babylonian creation mythos named after its opening words (incipit) which means ‘when on high’. It’s about thousand lines recorded in Old Babylonian on seven clay tablets. Here on this chapbook, the term ‘when on high’ is re-worked as poems about life, creation, death and eternity. Following a vague sequence, it starts covering meditations on flowers, stars, life and the idea of most absolute beginning and ending, but till the end poem itself finds remedies in the everlasting harmony of incarnation and fragments which has no beginning or ending. Even in smallest …
