Another set of releases out:

And an interview with Simon Reynell here:

Quote:I think the best way to describe the area that the label focuses on is to say that it’s somewhere on the increasingly fuzzy boundary between improvisation and contemporary classical music. So most of the discs are improvised, but I’m not really interested in jazz-based improvisation, or anything that derives from rock music. And most of the music I like best is pretty quiet, and combines acoustic instruments with electronics in some form. Does that give any clues?


more releases out plus a 5 for 4 disc deal.

kind of interested in the turntable ones Chin

honestly would buy them no question if it was digital, but probably the minority on that Grumble

I bought the new set using that deal Smile


James Saunders - imperfections on the surface are occasionally apparent
for 10 players with coffee cups on various surfaces

Xyxthumbs Hahaha

Hahaha let me know how you like it

InfiniteSloth Wrote:Hahaha let me know how you like it

I like it. It's just little noises really Smile

Also "Nachtstück" on Droplets, which is solo double bass recorded outside so there are lots of environmental sounds as well: mostly rain, but I did just hear a fly go buzzing past the mike Lol

Nachtstück sounds like my type of thing. Xyxthumbs

apparently not the minority — it seems he's thinking of giving up on CDs


the youtube channel is a great start Icon_yippee

The Anonymous Zone

Quote:The Anonymous Zone is a place where music can be listened to and appreciated for what it really is, not because of who made it. Improvisation and contemporary classical music are as riddled with star systems as any other form of music, and inevitably, in spite of our best intentions, our reaction to a piece of music is partly determined by our knowledge of who is playing or has composed it. So we give more time and attention to pieces by our favourite musicians, and – conversely – we’re inclined to quickly pass over music by people we either don’t know or assume we don’t much like.

The Anonymous Zone challenges these preconceptions by presenting music without telling you who it’s by. The pieces in The Zone are streamed here for a period of six months. After that the identities of the musicians behind the pieces are revealed, so that – if you liked a particular piece – you can then check out other music by them.


Did you figure out any of the artists? I haven't had time to play through more than a couple. (the timbres are very interesting and very cleanly recorded which makes for quite a listening treat)

I've not really thought about it.
