Blind Cave Salamander is a project by Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo and Paul Beauchamp often backed up by sound designer, producer and engineer, Marco Milanesio and cello player Julia Kent. An unusual mix of electronica, strings and guitars, drones and field recordings; a collection of finely wrought sounds that at times lean towards hypnotic lullabies and at others towards abstraction. A hybrid of the natural and the synthetic of which, like the Proteus, the pale-skinned, cave-dwelling amphibian that lends its name to the project, Blind Cave Salamander unravel shadowy, nocturnal landscapes. special guests and collaborators so far: - Andrew Liles: lounge, fashion, metal and beef - Colin Potter: live sound - Fabiana Antonioli: live visuals - Fovea Hex: sounds and music (live) - Jochen Arbeit: "Soundscapes", sounds and music -Julia Kent: cello, voice, arrangements (studio and live) -Marco Milanesio: recording, mixing, production, sound design - Nurse With Wound: "Soliloquy For Lilith", sounds and music -Michael Begg: electronics on "Troglobite" -Paul Wallfisch: piano on "Troglobite" -Pietro Riparbelli: instrumental transcommunnication action on "Nietzsche Fabrik Sessions/Transmission" -Ruth Bayer: "Splash"
Fabio Orsi is an electronic musician from Taranto (Southern Italy) specialising in atmospheric drone. He is a young and talented composer recently revealed in a series of publications received by an enthusiastic chorus of critical approval. In his compositions the languages of popular tradition meet the avantgarde approach, creating an original and charm mix. Orsi’s music originates with field recordings through which he seeks to capture images in sound inspired by the historic pre-war folk recordings made by Alan Lomax .
Gianluca Becuzzi (born 1962, Piombino-Italy) is an electronic / electroacoustic composer and sound artist active since the first half of the 80’s. He released many albums and performed live around Europe during the last three decades under various names. Since 1999, his artistic production is characterised by a strong experimental imprint, by the interest into the expressive possibilities offered by the technologies and by a clear aesthetic inclination towards abstract forms and micro / macro noises / sounds. He deals with electronic / electroacoustic composition, sound art, audio installations, ambient post-scorings and sound design. The relationships between art and science, between audio and visual-spatial forms, as well as between composition and self-generative processes represent the main themes in my sonological research. Among the artistic productions of the latest years, in addiction to the experimental works under his own name, we have to mention also his solo works as Kinetix, the records in duet with Fabio Orsi, the electro-post-punk project Noise Trade Company and the harsh-power-noise productions as Greyhistory, plus several other collaborations with musicians, theatre companies and videoartists from the experimental area. PROJECTS: LIMBO (1984-2001) SAINT LUKA (1988-1992) MATAFORM (1995-1996) KINETIX (1999-2010) GIANLUCA BECUZZI (2006-Today) GIANLUCA BECUZZI FABIO ORSI (2006-Today) NOISE TRADE COMPANY (2008-Today) GREY HISTORY (2010-Today)
Their name is taken from an early 20th Century European philosophical movement but accusations of intellectual or fake metal may be the least of L'ACEPHALE's worries. Portland, Oregon's L'ACEPHALE's sound draws on influences including neo-folk band Death in June and the Ukraine's Hate Forest, both of whom are allegedly "Ripped on Fascist Ideas". Add to that choral passages appropriated from Orthodox Christian composers like Gorecki and Arvo Part, and you can see why they are a more intriguing proposition than the ideologically confused caustic mush that passes for much modern Black Metal. Founding Member Set Sothis Nox La guides us through his complex project.
Toroidh is a martial industrial music project by Swedish musician Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (of industrial band Maschinenzimmer 412 fame). Bjorkk has described it as a continuation of Folkstorm, his previous project.
Michael DeWitt Early ritual industrial project of Michael DeWitt (Nekrophile Records). Only "The Secret Eye of L.A.Y.L.A.H." and a few compilation tracks were ever recorded. A planned release of a musical/ritual rendition of The Book Of The Law was planned, but only one track ended up being completed. ZERO KAMA war ein musikalisches Soloprojekt von Michael DeWitt, der unter diesem Namen 1984 das Album "The Secret Eye of L.A.Y.L.A.H." veröffentlichte, auf dem ausschließlich Musik zu hören ist, die auf selbstgebauten Instrumenten aus menschlichen Schädeln und Knochen gespielt wurde. Inspiriert durch die Praxis tibetischer Mönche, aus den Knochen von Mönchen, hingerichteten Verbrechern und Jungfrauen rituelle Musikinstrumente anzufertigen, begann Michael DeWitt im Frühjahr 1984 eigene Knocheninstrumente herzustellen. Neben reich verzierten Oberschenkeltrompeten nach tibetischem Vorbild entstanden auch vier Schädeltrommeln, verschiedene Perkussionsinstrumente, ein Oberschenkelknochenyxlophon, eine Unterschenkelknochenflöte und zwei aus Unterschenkelknochen und Ellen zusammengesetzte Blasinstrumente, die durch ein Oboen-Doppelblatt-Mundstück angeblasen wurden.
