VA (feat. Zn'shñ)TAO (FREE DOWNLOAD)

Simply put, Tao is a concept of the fundamental nature of the world, a world that is constantly fluid, continuing and changing rather than the static definition of a never changing reality. The Tao Te Ching by Lao-Tzu is the best literary depiction of the concept and remains one of the most significant spiritual works of all times. The tecnoNucleo net label has put together a 28 track and almost 3 hours long collection of musical interpretions of this seminal work. The tracks include a wide range of experimental electronic artists who uses various means including field recordings, sampling, electronic drones and more to complete their interpretations. Like the concept itself, there is no absolute and finite meaning to these works. The meaning is in the sound, creating an intuitive feeling and holistic environment rather than any intellectual definition. And in this way this anthology succeeds. This is a album that is meant to be felt rather than understood and in that sense, it becomes a highly spiritual experience.

Franck Smith — Duck-store (FREE DOWNLOAD)

This cartoonesque recto-verso soundtrack dedicated to John Zorn, is a modest answer to "The classic guide to strategy" by composer/performer John Zorn, a work-in-progress initiated in the early eighties. The present piece is not a "re-reed-ing" of the original pretext but acts as a dual wink to the very personal/peculiar aesthetic of solo music developped by its author.
