Classwar Karaoke – Survey 0021

download FREE here

Founded in 2008, Classwar Karaoke is a label dedicated to the release of experimental music and short-films; principally, by means of a series of ongoing quarterly surveys, made available via sites such as internet archive, myspace, discogs, youtube, lastfm, facebook, sonic squirrel, reverbnation, soundcloud etc, under Creative Commons license 3. All material remains the property of the respective artists and is offered for free download in line with this license. The Surveys published so far feature artists from all over the world; and the material in toto represents significant documentation of the experimental scene itself. Involvement in the project has helped spawn many fruitful collaborations, live-shows and a vibrant exchange of ideas; so much so that, for several repeat-participants, Classwar Karaoke is as much a collective as it is a community and also a mechanism for the release of new material.

The very wonderful Itsu Jitsu label based in Scotland has released a new album from Noise Research.

A Proof of Fermat – Noise Research (ijnr01)

Download ‘A Proof of Fermat’ FREE here

Noise Research has crafted a hugely evocative snapshot of life in The City. Electrics hiss and spit, machinery malfunctions and drones and all around us people collide head on with modern day living.

It begins relatively quietly and peacefully with processed shifting sounds creating a sense of motion and exploration. These bring to mind light winds blowing through a city, alighting upon it’s inhabitants, giving us a brief insight into their existence, a sense of the minutiae of their daily lives. Three minutes into ‘Concrete Island’ however a darker side begins to show as the wind works it’s way into cracks and crevices, wears away at buildings, vehicles, people, a creeping sense of dread begins to spread through this peaceful scene and slowly, insidiously it spreads on through ‘Crash’ and into ‘High Rise’ taking us with it (Jason Kavanagh, Itsu Jitsu).
