[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.

Etched Traumas Vol. III 2013​​-​​2014 [ET51​-​​ET78]

Etched Traumas Vol. III 2013​-​2014 [ET51-​ET78]

Our first release for 2016. This is the third compilation of our releases [ET51-​ET78]. We would like to thank all the contributing artists and our downloaders. Have a happy new year!! There are fantastic projects in the near future. You can ‘like’ our Facebook page.


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 stereotyping.

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

[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.
