✨✨ Ko Shin Moon : 78 Fragments ✨✨ Extract N°4 "Nava" BC: akuphone.bandcamp.com/track/nava SC: soundcloud.com/akuphone/nava Based on: gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k1081093b At the end of 2018, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Gallica BnF , Akuphone and Ko Shin Moon were invited to create a piece from the library’s audio archives. After working on it for several weeks, a first version was presented during the anniversary ceremony. The project continued to develop over four months before arriving at a definitive version. The scope of the project was limited to audio recordings from the library’s collection that were free of legal restrictions, which meant: only 78 rpm records from the first half of the 20th century. The format is unique, left to specialists and forgotten by listeners and producers. 78 records are almost never used for sampling and it’s this application that makes Ko Shin Moon’s album stand out. Many factors needed to be considered, including white noise, breaths, the harshness of certain frequencies, and the production style from the era of the recordings. Using these precious resources as a creative tool, Ko Shin Moon made substantial rearrangements, but they forced themselves to respect the original tuning of the recordings by setting their analog synthesizers and instruments to the same microtonality as the records. #fusion #global #folktronica #sampling #synth #luth #archives #gallica

Ukranian/Japanese duo Tamayugé hex the trippy headz at Paris’ Akuphone with a ‘marishly cute but f**ked up invocation of ‘Baba Yaga’, the witch-like Slavic folklore figure. Check for strangest feels in the murky Finnish psych styles of ‘Chornei, what sounds like Phew duelling Elvin Brandhi on ’Tamago’, or a Breadwoman baked from infected rye in ‘Herbert Song’ (Boomkat.com product review) https://tamayuge.bandcamp.com/

After working on it for several weeks, a first version was presented during the anniversary ceremony. The project continued to develop over four months before arriving at a definitive version. The scope of the project was limited to audio recordings from the library’s collection that were free of legal restrictions, which meant: only 78 rpm records from the first half of the 20th century.

Using these precious resources as a creative tool, Ko Shin Moon made substantial rearrangements, but they forced themselves to respect the original tuning of the recordings by setting their analog synthesizers and instruments to the same microtonality as the records. Most of the chosen samples were recorded between 1910 and 1940 and came from different parts of the world. These include: North Africa for « Gasba » and « La Rivière » The Middle East and Central Asia for « Segah », « Bayati Chiraz », and « Nava », India for « Devi Sthothra » and « Narayan », Mozambique for « I-XIII », South Asia for « L’Offrande » and « Sabat Sabing", Japan for « Les Consonnes » and France for « L’Offrande ». “We’re very thankful to have been able to have our work infused with such cultural heritage,” says Ko Shin Moon. “We thank the Bibliothèque nationale de France for their trust and above all, we want to show our respect to the musicians and singers present on these recordings.”

Instrumentalist and composer, Władysław Komendarek (born in 1948 in Sochaczew, Poland) was a member of the legendary group Exodus in the 1973-1983 period. But the pioneering achievements of Komendarek in the field of electronic music were revealed with glory in the 1980s with the start of his solo career. Equipped with various analogue synthesizers –even some of his own manufacture–, he began to explore the sounds of the Earth and the Cosmos. Intensely drawn to electronic instruments, he tried to use them to their maximum capacity. For over forty years now, he has been a restless and tireless seeker of beyond-the-earthly sounds hiding in synthesizers which he has tried to reveal to the world. more info 👉 urlz.fr/9Jrr #Electronic, #Eurodance #Ebm #Synthpop #Techno, #Industrial, #DIY, #Poland #synthmadness
