For its 34th release, Da ! Heard It Records is warming up the machines to trace some new paths.
Packaged in quasi-monochrome illustrations with quasi-absurd architectural tendencies, the visuals emphasize the kinetic art and foreshadow what one is about to hear: chain reactions and strange angles; it all moves and it all hits.
This cassette is an absolute beat garage!
Think of a little place where things are done by hand, geared towards total customization, fine-tuning; truly without concession and C_C is the boss. He’s the one with his nose under the hood and adjusting everything by ear. In total contrast with factory and chain-work sound, C_C knows how to use a system as Low-Cost as Low-Fi. Not afraid of getting his hands dirty!
The electronic sound is played from the fingertips, and it’s audible: the patterns aren’t dull and the rhythms brilliant.
It also plays with codes, and plays with them in a laid-back way, arm hanging out the window, headlights fully on. It advances tirelessly, entertaining without using, definitely more auto-reverse than auto-stop. Natural born bottom-of-time, C_C plays it in four-wheel drive, for all terrains, and completely versatile in all respects. He alternates straight hitting lines, feedback turns, and reverb drifts, and allows himself to ride right in the middle, his kick as pressed as the pedal, larsen melodies comfortably settled in the backseat.
At full speed, it’s blinking from all sides, counterpoint at every corner. With always one ear on the rearview mirror, and the GPS evidently out of order… drifting away from the roots is inevitable. In Impendulo, one is thus neither here nor there, but rather on unknown territory with no markers, never safe, but always sound. Welcome to the fourth (rid)dimension, this four-track game that summons hormones and neurons, active listening, and active dancing.
The drum is electronic and its skin is unbreakable, and in a thousand miles, it will still be playing, unfettered. One hit up, one hit down, the rhythmics spar without any low hits and most importantly without the rotundity that fishing for sound can bring. With C_C, it’s refined and chiseled by ear on the mixing side. The composition is stripped of anything superfluous, reduced to the bones, and you feel it in your bones: trans, love it or leave it.

Behind Synflict is Olliver Wichmann who lives in Leipzig, Germany.
"Cords and Connectors" is a suite of seven parts where ideas evolve and fade away, tonal ranges contract and expand or shapes become clearly visible only to disappear in the fog or reverberation again.
These technical details firmly place this album in electroacoustic or acousmatic territory, though these keywords should only be considered a shorthand for the most probable of all descriptions.

Mitoma is the newest musical creation from the same two happy Scotsmen behind the Altered:Carbon project, an album which sonically aims more towards dark dancefloor orientated sounds than the aforementioned alias. "Interstellar Debris" has been described as:
"...an excellent journey of sonic proportions. Razor sharp rhythms pulse frenetically over an open spaced and futuristic backdrop. There are moments that hint of rust and mechanical decay, as beautiful tones dance and weave behind writhing chemical reactions which would make a befitting soundtrack to the birth of the universe. Put simply, a stunning and moving piece of sound art." (J.Straw)

THE STORY :
Summer 2009 : LibreCommeLair (LCL), a french online music label, opens a free creative commons sound bank filled by the artists who collaborated or released on the label.
To spread the new, the label decides to organize a remix contest based on the sound bank.
January 2011 : The contest entries are now closed, we were initialy supposed to make a pre-selection of the tracks we received, but we just couldn't because of the variety and quality of tracks : dub, reggae, electroacustic, d'n'b, house, electronica... So we let the Jury decide !
Speaking about it, a jury composed of Netaudio and Creative Commons music actors will make a final selection that will be released as a compilation on LibreCommeLair.
The Jury will be : FreeMusicArchive, Notheen, Subflow, DivergenceFM, INQ, Netwaves, Netaudio Berlin, AQuietBump, iD.EOLOGY and Dogmazic.
