[ET109] Anton Lazarev & Anton Zagorulin – 15

Audio materials for the installation.

Synesthetic experience intended to be synergic: a little list of tracks dissecting the painting of the artist ??? from all sides.

15 sound splashes imparting extra dimensions, up to volume and smell, to the two-dimensional painting. According to the authors, things usually hidden behind a flat surface of a canvas should be opened by means of acoustical images.

The tracks themselves (it seems essential to call them “movements”, by old academic tradition) are laconic, homogeneous, moderately noisy, demonstrating, in essence, the fact: all our organs of sense are the same.

[ET108] notnotice – सगरमाथा

We are more than happy to release the album of Ivan Somov titled सगरमाथा (Everest).The album narrates the difficult path of conquering of the highest mountain on the planet Earth. The music takes you to an exciting journey through the mountain passes, ridges and base camps. A traveler should be courageous in order to reach the peak. Spirits will protect him, while dangerous avalanches and frozen empty spaces will be waiting for him. This album is dedicated to all who are overcoming themselves. It is filled with the spirit of will.

एल्बम Ivan Somov, भनिन्छ सगरमाथा (सगरमाथा) “notnotice” विद्युतीय संगीत को एक कलाकार रूपमा चिनिने। उहाँले धरती मा उच्चतम पहाड विजयी को कठिन बाटो बताउँछ। पर्वतमा, बित्दै मार्फत र आधार शिविरमा संगीत एउटा रोमाञ्चक यात्रा लाग्छ। यो यात्री शीर्ष पुग्न साहसी हुनुपर्छ। यो पनि अत्तर सुरक्षा बरफ र खाली खाली को खतरनाक हिमपहिरोले लागि प्रतीक्षा गर्नुहोस्। सबै आफूलाई गर्न यो एल्बम समर्पित छ। यो इच्छा आत्मा भरिएको छ।

Альбом Ивана Сомова, известного как исполнителя электронной музыки “notnotice” получил название सगरमाथा (Эверест). Он повествует о сложном пути покорения самой высокой горы на планете Земля. Музыка уносит в увлекательное путешествие, сквозь перевалы, хребты и базовые лагеря. Путник должен быть отважен чтоб достичь вершины. Его будут оберегать духи, поджидать опасные лавины и ледяные пустые пространства. Этот альбом посвящен всем преодалевающим себя. Он наполнен духом воли.

[ET105] Jimmy Watt – untitled #XII

Etched Traumas is more than happy to welcome Jimmy Watt from Chile. Watt’s work methodology focuses mainly on the capture, extraction, editing and storage of audio samples from different sources.

He transforms, relentlessly, curtails, beheads and sews sound works from different backgrounds and authors, providing the glue that comes from analog-digital instruments and audio processors and resulting in a “sound narration” split into parts.

His sound works do not drop below 20 minutes for just such narrative, where there is a development from defined introduction to epilogue. He detests the “digital finishing” of sound with a computer. For that reason dirty, gnawing and saturated sounds prevail (but without spoiling the record), thus achieving kind of a sound archeology. His creative concepts pursues mysticism, the occult, time, religions, the process that leads to contemplation, the silence, the pause, the suspension, death and upstarts.

[ET104] BroodingSideOfMadness & nobodisoundz – Dis-Tu

Dis-TuEight lo-fi sketches that lead to unchartered territories while we breath few words of Mallarmé.

BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambience. He prefers the use of acoustic material than synthetic and he always seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He runs Etched Traumas net label.

Nobodisoundz comes from France and first started this sound-making project by cobbling together music samples, sounds, field recordings and the results of his fiddling with audio software. These sounds completed his works and added an atmosphere within and around his paintings, subsequent installations and videos. He looks for dense, heavy, noisy, squeaky, tense and quiet atmospheres, which have to be both dark and bright at the same time.

[ET103] Martin Hoogeboom – Four Fields

Four Fields

1 ………..somewhere…insect heart…minuscule feathers unfurl against a remembered pulse…the world between flight and anchor caught in a silvery skein of dew…translucent days…a distant figure swims through the heat haze…

2 the lit fuse of summer sparks, crackles…time and space converge inward…imagination malleable…seconds and minutes shiver…wind-blown wheat…dreams lost and found in the field…

3 …touched by leaves…unburdened and adrift…wood smoke curls into tears…someone… veiled manifestation vaguely glimpsed…

4 …connected to the ineffable, pulled through the mundane…new worlds weaved from old mythologies…there, a tolling bell embossed on a cloud… in a sky as deep as an ocean…strolling toward a vanishing point of our own making…somewhere

[ET102] Ein Profil – I’m in Real Life – Where are You?

i'm in real life - where are you?

I’m in Real Life – Where are You?” is Ein Profil’s attempt at expressing the feelings of falling in love while still young and naive. The album evokes various emotions as well as sentimental memories of that summer we all have been through – no matter who we are or where we live. It’s kitchy, it’s inscrutable – it’s dilettantish, it’s multi-faceted and loses itself to details. It’s you, it’s here, it’s now – a unique moment. There is no need to hurry even though billions of chances are running out — billions are created at the very same time. Take your time and feel free to listen to Ein Profil. FREE Download here

Ein Profil comes from Germany where he lives in the beautiful town of Marburg. He especially prefers the sound of strings and chimes and is fond of melodies placed into hollow or wafting backgrounds. He is highly interested in collaborations, so feel free to contact him!

[ET101] djozr & Lezet – Split

Split

Enjoy our first release for autumn 2016 numbered ET101 by djozr and Lezet artists. Free Download here.

The sophomore effort by a duo of old friends is a collaboration as much as it is a split release. It documents a radical departure from the sounds and approaches hitherto associated with Djozr and Lezet, and ventures into dangerously new terrains for both artists. But even despite this, the split feels more like a unified body of work than a mere collection of new songs.

djozr (d͡ʒoʊ.zɹ) is an ambient drone glitch project by Glenn Bryce.

Lezet is an experimental music project from Serbia.

[ET100] Janne Nummela – Alla​-​attapan

Alla-attapan

“These two great terrestrial Chinese learned beings then had recourse for their elucidatory experiments to every kind of what are called ‘chemical,’ ‘physical,’ and ‘mechanical’ experiments and they gradually formed one very complicated and in the highest degree edifying experimental apparatus, which they called ‘Alla-attapan.’”

Gurdjieff: Beelzebub’s Tales

We welcome Janne Nummela from Finland. Enjoy his first work for Etched Traumas titled ‘Alla-attapan’. ‘Alla-attapan’ is an experimental improvisatory fantasy in parallel universe “chinese opera” tradition.

[ΕΤ96] ΚΑΤΑΠΥΓΩΝ & Melodie Des Vergessens – ΧΥΜΟΣ ΑΓΙΟΣ

ΧΥΜΟΣ ΑΓΙΟΣ

Χυμός Άγιος – may be translated either “Holy Juice” or “Holy Substance”, refering in the first interpretation to Orange Juice with LSD of Merry Pranksters, but more likely to the sacral beverage of Proto-Indo-Europeans (sanscr. सोम, avest. haoma, Proto-Indo-Iranian *sauma-). There is a theory, that the main component of this sacral drink was Ephedra and our predilection to ephedrine-liking substances at the moment of creation the “Χυμός Άγιος” caused the drunken, dionysiac and insane character of this music.
The second interpretation of title – “The Sacral Substance” – refer to the philosophocal context of Ancient Greeks (Plutarch and some others) and in this context is associated and connected etymologically to the word “chemistry”. In this sence our collaboration was the trial of inner-alchemical process and synthesis.

[ET94] Martin Hoogeboom – The Garden

The Garden

The music on ‘The Garden’ was created with the Super 8 films (https://youtu.be/IdHePjYqu-A) by independent movie director Derek Jarman (1942-1994) in mind. These films show Jarman at his most visually courageous and creative, using prisms, filters and superimposition to produce rich colour and artistically bold compositions. The transient images, isolated like paintings, are the essence of Derek Jarman and his visual vocabulary.

‘The Garden’: tribute to a great artist.

ETCompilationVolIII

We feel like explorers; we travel light years in distance via unheard sounds springing from our lungs. Armed with a DAW, and a poor quality audio recorder, for new situations. There are rules to override, and wires to stretch. Capture the sound of stretching a copper string, an accidental breaking of glass and suddenly we are between mellowness and harshness, sadness and happiness. We are here to make a joyful noise, because all impulses escape stereotyping.

‘Our model is sound’, so lets go down and burn up the road. Leave your etched traumas behind.
