We are introducing the Etched Traumas single series along with our main EP and album releases. We are more than happy to present you the first release of our single series by Yaws. Known (or not-known) for attention to detail in his compositions and a lo-fi approach and aesthetic in creating music, Yaws makes rhythmic soundscapes, exploring long and expanding improvisations through repetition, static and noise. Taking influence from artists such as HTRK, Deutsch Nepal, Coil and Craig Leon, his music is an incessant, yet subtle perpetual groove which intends to tap into a rhythmic continuum which transcends the listener.

[ET75] NOBODIotherSOUNDZmatter – ‘of rust, grain and atmospher’

Etched Traumas is more than happy to present the collaborative work of nobodisoundz and Other Matter duo of Michel Kristof and Palomo Julien. ‘of rust, grain and atmospher’ album is a sonic collage of dark and soulful electrified elements.

of rust, grain and atmospher

A panorama of distorted pads, electric guitar improvisations and synthesized ambient sounds. It is a cinematic journey: corrosive atmosphere and last transmissions from an underground shelter; a perfect soundtrack for ‘Dead Man’s Letters’ (Письма мёртвого человека) film directed by Konstantin Lopushansky.

[ET61] Free Variety Theatre and Johannes Weinberger – adipem Syrticas

adipem Syrticas

God, take this off. Free Variety Theatre and Johannes Weinberger: a style of music and improvisation that combines avant and composition but never both. Sounds very similar but often differs in that, despite its distinct departure… doldrums… as a teenager developed into addiction (while in hospital) after an inconsequential, but certainly occult, accident. Occident. It has a predetermined structure [lie]? This structure may be rejected by many [untruth]? Composed note-4-note [NO!]? Partially or even completely. As a result, it gained limited/great hardship in Cal-, was rediscovered and issued, eventually being committed to musicians and fans alike. Sing: Captured for posterity! Development! Poster!
