Etched Traumas Vol. II 2011​-​2013 [ET25​-​ET50] Compilation

 

Etched Traumas Vol. II 2011-2013 [ET25-ET50]

It has been a fantastic three-year journey, with amazing works by amazing artists from all over the world. We are honoured to have released music by some of the most fantastic, innovative and creative artists of today. We thank all of them for showing patience and trust.

In a true collaborative spirit, we worked towards all of these non-profit releases, whilst aiming for the innovative and anti-retro elements of modern sound/audio/music.

Imaginative and highly creative, the artists on Etched Traumas have explored and experimented with synthesized and acoustic audio. They have dived deep into uncharted sonic realms, using experimental sounds from space or even sounds based on tiny little creatures, such as ants.

Introverted and extroverted music, power electronics, noise or breakbeat. Delicate frequencies, or majestic esoteric experimentation.

It is true.

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 prototyping.

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

Last but not least, we’d like to thank all of our downloaders over the last three years.

[ET58] 23RedAnts – We are not dead yet

We are not dead yetEtched Traumas is proud of releasing ‘We Are Not Dead Yet’ by 23RedAnts. 23RedAnts is the artistic duet of Macarena Montesinos and Niet F-n. Their work, highly improvised and exploratory, is based on electronic and acoustic equipment, such as cello, laptop, pedals and other found objects. The quest of new rhythmic patterns along with surpassing cello micro-drones, build together a brave and well articulated outcome.

 

23RedAnts-image live

23RedAnts is a duet (Macarena Montesinos and Niet F-n) that comes from Vigo, Spain. Mainly based on free improvisation, the duet moves in different directions mixing noise, melody, glitch music, silences, field recordings, loops and irregular rhythms in always new and surprising ways.
