[ET112] Gomon – Kenoma

Gomon is the product of cold city sounds, which is mixed with guitar riffs and chthonic myths. The music of this project is a search for the atmosphere in the world of dreams for a breath of fresh air. The first album Kenoma comes from the faceless emptiness of human nature. We praise the biological body, its voice, its movements, which is decorated by plastic and metal. We bathe in post-rock among the stars, listen to the folk-echoes of our ancestors and descend into the depths of the subconscious with the help of ambient and drone elements.

Gomon – это звуки холодного города, разбавленные гитарными риффами и хтоническими мифами. Музыка киевского проекта представляет собой поиски атмосферы в мире снов для глотка свежего воздуха. Первый альбом Kenoma идет с безликих пустот человеческого иства. Мы восхваляем биологическое тело, его голос, его движения, испрещенное микросхемами, украшенное пластиком и металлом. Мы купаемся в пост-роке среди звезд, слушаем фолк-отголоски предков и опускаемся в глубины подсознания с помощью ambient и drone элементов.

[ET89] No Way Out – ‘Untitled’

Untitled.

This ‘Untitled’ work is based on the annoying tape noise & hiss. But instead of hiding what most of us dislike, I’ve tried to reveal their inner potential.
Indeed, this raw & minimal material, after sculpting, becomes an immersive soundscape made of intensity & introspectives phases.

CREDITS:

No Way Out is a french experimental project active since 2009. Through the years the sound evolved from dark ambient to bruitisme, including neo-classical elements amongst many other styles (but mainly in the experimental field). But whatever the medium No Way Out uses, the soul of his projects remain the same. Each album must be seen as a new chapter of the same story.

[ET68] Willy Stamati – A Moment of Absolute Stillness

Stamati invites us to a dark realm of ambient, noise and mechanical sounds. Archetypical drone textures, noise elements, lo frequencies and cold soundscapes construct the Ukrainian artist’s sonic mosaic.

A Moment of Absolute Stillness

Willy Stamati is a post-industrial / noise / experimental one-man project from Ukraine. It was established in 2007. The basic aim is sound experiments. Inspired by such luminaries as Merzbow, Aube, Marco Corbelli, Maurizio Bianchi, Raison d’Etre, Contagious Orgasm and Bad Sector, Willy Stamati worked his way up from darkwave and neoclassics to post-industrial and noise and created more than 100 albums in different styles. The main topic of his music is life in its lowest display, from worst human features to faults of development; the gloomy atmosphere of his music call thoughts about doom, despair and realization of self-insignificance. The main features differing Willy Stamati from similar projects are careful selection of musical material, variety of genres and styles, its original sound and serious intelligent approach to music creation.

[ET48] Lord Havoc – Futuristic Space Invasion

Futuristic Space InvasionEtched Traumas is more than happy to release Lord Havoc’s work titled ‘Futuristic Space Invasion’. A cosmic journey into uncharted territories. Celestial drones, low and high frequencies experiments in a science fiction lab.

Lord Havoc, or Rakun, or Jus, is a (dark) ambient artist from Slovenia. His ambition to make music comes from life, experimentation and science fiction. He has been making it for a few years, mostly experimenting, but occasionally deciding to do more serious music. Lord Havoc likes to read a lot, is a mudder and very interested in science, nuclear stuff and astronomy.

[ET45] VICTIM! – Ecos

EcosEtched Traumas proudly presents VICTIM!’s work titled ‘Ecos’. On “Ecos”, the intention is to explore reverberation in determined empty spaces. The propagation of tones and its overlap. The sound of the places are so important as the sound of the instruments used. The propose of “Ecos” is a dialog between the two.

VICTIM! is an extreme music project inspired, among other practices, by power electronics and noise, making extensive use of field recordings.VICTIM!’s music is guided by affective connections with sounds, similar to the link that you can have with a place, that is filled, as the field recordings that fill the tracks. People talk, cars pass. Listen to VICTIM!’s music also means reflecting about the day-to-day in each city, the conversations heard, and, deeply, the place of subjectivity in all of this, which is solved in the other sound elements present.

VICTIM! is a solo project by Cadu Tenório.

[ET17] Red Clouds – The Introduction Of A New Species

The Introduction Of A New SpeciesWe are more than happy to release the latest work of US artist Red Clouds titled ‘The Introduction Of A New Species’.

http://www.etchedtraumas.net/discography/the-introduction-of-a-new-species/

A thick dark ocean of space ambient frequencies or the sound of uncharted universe? Red Clouds continues to experiment with cosmic noises in these four magnificent tracks. The dominant dark ambient soundscape attribute is a container that encapsulates subtle elements such as a futuristic cosmic subject-matter, a laborious frequency manipulation and drone and collaged sounds. His work could be a field recording in a location of a remote solar system or the slowly ever changing distant lights of a city. They look static but there are not. A value found in the essence of ambient music as defined by Mixmaster Morris.
