"Luminous Air and Delicate Accidents" (review)
A delicate rice-paper cover for a clear vinyl release is the maiden
release for Tobira Records. New Works for Processed Electric Guitar
presents a shimmering soundscape with elusive harmonies from Richard
Lainhart and a warm, prickly cloud of gently swirling melodic lines

"Essay: Capitatio Benevolentiae - Piracy, Capital, and the Culture of
Digital Sound - Frank Rothkamm" (review)

"Fast Falls the Eventide by Dead Voices on Air" (review)
Dead Voices on Air, was originally a trio consisting of Scott Harker,
Clancy Dennehey, and ex-Zoviet Frances Mark Spybey. Fast Falls the
Eventide marks DVOAs 11th album where now we find Spybey solely at
the helm. This ship sails the waters off a strange musical continent,
a land where world music fuses disembodied, electronic-rumbling drones

Submerged in the basement vault of a pub in central London every
Wednesday night in August, noises began to crackle, and light began to

"XVI Reflections on Classical Music - Various" (review)
Musical genres as any aficionado will tell you have historically grown
out of a reaction to the fetishism of the previous era. Whether it be
the quest for balance and harmony emanating from the disjointed ashes
of Baroque or Debussy's longing for dissonance from the melodic
sentimentalism of Bedřich Smetana, they all tend to be motivated
by periodical ennui of what has gone before.
