melophobia comes from Greece. He likes to experiment with long noise and drone sounds intermingled with field recordings and acoustic sounds. melophobia is heavily influenced by contemporary artists such as Merzbow and early ’90s shoegaze scene. He is active with his ultra-limited releases of his 3″/5″ CDr label ‘illicit-tapes’. He cherishes the piles of his priceless jap noise C-xx tapes and obscure vinyls.

BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambiance. He seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He is the founder of Etched Traumas netlabel.

[ET70] REISEBÜRO86 – ‘A Hereditary Monarchy’

 

A Hereditary MonarchyEtched Traumas welcomes REISEBÜRO86 the solo project of Hungarian artist Normal Gergely.

‘A Hereditary Monarchy’ is made of a classic piano music with distorted microphone. Complex and multi-level qualities contrast the grand piano melodies. The six movements of this album merge a decadent interwar feeling with an electrified dystopian ambiance.

“…reminds me of the world wars and the hereditary socialization problems of people. Like an innocent person in a war. Like a child who does not understand the world and his parents. It means for me that an end of a classic closed community, the healthy thoughts fighting with the narrow minded scene or a hopeless and neverending sadness.” argues Gergely.

The Reisebüro86 is a deep, sensitive and personal approach of the noise-soundart. Always experimental and totally dark sounds with guitar, effects, flute, keyboard, looper, microphone and small metal strings and springs and other special objects. Normal’s Improvised free musics fill out his strange and weird visual world.
