[ET39] Bitsev – Situation

Etched Traumas is honored to present the recent work of Bitsev titled ‘Situation’. Bitsev is the solo project of Gusev K.P. from Russian Federation. Gusev K.P. uses ‘conventional’ electric instruments such as the electric guitar or the ukulele, electronic instruments and handmade ones, such as his ‘Noise CDtron’.

He records his music live and builds free jazz ambient textures and minimal electro acoustic structures. The ‘Situation’ album is distinguished for its generative approach without being generative at all. On the contrary, Gusev K.P. plays live all the instruments. Being highly exploratory, the ‘Situation’ album is an exciting journey into a sonic world, where there are no stereotypes or prejudices and Davis, Parmegiani and Eno would be proud of.

[ET35] René Baptist Huysmans – Dawn of the Anthropocene

Etched Traumas is more than happy to release ‘Dawn of the Anthropocene‘. René Baptist Huysmans comes from the Netherlands. He uses field recordings of urban sounds that he manipulates beyond recognition playing with various software. As he says “My favorite percussion instruments turn out to be trains in stations, my favorite ensemble construction workers at a site. A train journey from Amsterdam to Berlin can be a six-hour-symphony”.

The discovery here on Earth of extremophile micro-organisms, organisms that thrive in otherwise extremely hostile environments, was an important breakthrough because it extended the possibilities of life within our solar system and on exo-planets orbiting other stars.
The names of these organisms is a particular source of inspiration to me. There are the Oligotrophs, organisms capable of growth in nutritionally limited environments, there are the Cryptoendoliths, organisms that live within microscopic spaces in rocks, to mention a few. But when we send probes to distant worlds to look for alien extremophiles, aren’t we also looking for ourselves? The three tracks explore the human being as an extremophile organism, an organism testing the boundaries of what it is capable of digesting chemically, digitally and psychologically.

[ET18] Unciviliz – Draft Et Draft

Etched Traumas is more than happy to release ‘Draft et Draft’, the first release of Greek artist Unciviliz. Unciviliz experiments with noisy sonic blasts and  soundbites, low frequencies and vocal samples creating miniaturesque noise works.  ‘Draft et Draft’ is radical, unorthodox but you can discover a humorous side either in its track titles or in its compositions. Make no mistake. This is pure rock’n’roll in its very essence. Fun, guts, heart and mind. You won’t find any high-brow theory here. A sound collage of an evening street fight or an obscure Snowhite tale reading, Unciviliz mutates them into noise stabs.
