[ET115] Lezet – Intimate

solo bass ruminations. FREE Download here

CREDITS:

We are so happy to release another Lezet‘s work on Etched Traumas. Lezet is Igor Jovanovic and comes from Požega, Serbia. Lezet is a one-man experimental music project in 2005 and he has released more than 45 albums. “Someone’s comment about the sound of Lezet (Igor Jovanović) was ‘like Zorn without saxophone’…And indeed, Lezet’s work could remind the results of “the game theory”, which John Zorn exercised on his debut “Locus Solus”, for example…The fact that Lezet doesn’t use only live instruments will probably disconnect it from the Avant Garde free jazz scene, but I suppose the coming under some specific style wasn’t the intent in this case anyway. It’s about free experiments with sound captures in search for the surprises. And it can’t be pretentious as such…”.

[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.

[ET36] Nicholas Fair – How To Get Lost In Your Bedroom

Etched Traumas is more than happy to release the latest work of Nicholas Fair. Fair comes from Coprus Christi, TX and he is a prolific and talented experimental artist. He’s been writing and recording short instrumentals for thirteen years along with other numerous filmscore or solo projects, and bands. With more than 40 releases under various monikers in cassette, CD, DVD and even VHS formats his work is still versatile and unexpected.

The ‘How To Get Lost In Your Bedroom‘ EP comprises of three instrumental tracks with electric guitar in a lo-fi aesthetic. Partly deliberately and partly due to the nature of recording media (cassette) and due to its age, a certain warmth of noise is being added to the final result. Despite the release title, one could close his/her eyes and envision the great American plains in a dry period, as depicted in the films of Peter Vogdanovich. Solitary and introspective; this is great music!
