Farben – Farben

“Faitiche is very pleased to announce the release of a new Farben 12″ vinyl single. This is Jan Jelinek’s first release under the Farben pseudonym since 2004 and combines older, unreleased recordings with newly produced material. From 1998 to 2004 Farben produced techno and house abstractions which were characterized by their simple, geometric rhythms and detailed sound aesthetics. Journalist Philip Sherburne subsequently named this music ‘Microhouse’. Farben‘s original desire to convey the sexiness of a Burt Bacharach song in club music has now been abandoned. ”

To hear samples of the record, head over to the label’s official website.

Bleep Podcast 003 – Raster Noton Special

Published: 20.10.10  Download MP3

Created from the mergence of labels rastermusic and noton in 1999, Raster-Noton has become the leading platform for experimental electronic sound. Blurring the boundaries between music, installations and publications, the overarching aesthetic is of the highest fidelity. Based in Chemnitz / Germany, it is run by Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai, who over see the production of some the most exquisite and uniquely packaged releases, Raster-Noton reinforces the fetishism of collecting physical music. The label’s stable of artists such as Alva Noto, Frank Bretschneider, Byetone and the labels supergroup Signal, together with experimental stalwarts Mika Vainio, Wolfgang Voigt and Atom TM, alongside a new generation electronic artists such as Aoki Takamasa and Grischa Lichtenberger, all create a roster that consistently challenges the perception of ‘electronic music’.

cv313 – Live

cv313 – Live

” Full album release which was available in Japan as a limited edition (300 copies) CD release – featuring unreleased tracks and versions of deepchord tracks & plenty of unreleased cv313 content* Amazing set of live transmissions with nine tracks covering some of the finest in-the-moment versions of deep, dark and dubby classics. The “Live” element gives cv313 license for yet more coatings of static, droney dub textures and astral chord sequences, providing near-infinite variations of his amazingly well wrought theme that will immerse you in hazy textures from the off. Highly Recommended! ” via Boomkat

Once Beyond Hopelessness

Wayne Coyne ( The Flaming Lips)Christmas on Mars


“Christmas On Mars” is saying…that we know, for certain, that life is bleak and dark…it is awkward and clumsy and void of all meaning.  Therefore, it is up to us to make it beautiful and graceful .It is up to us to see its magic and wonder. And so, in the truest sense of understanding what is sublime… We know that we can, regardless of our plight, creat our own meaning and create our own joy and happiness… this is the Christmas we speak of.”

” It is impossible to measure the effect that sound has in conjuring a mood. Music, alone, is already profoundly capable…but music – plus pictures – plus momentum of  a story (as in a movie) is in the realm of the most sublime of experiences our minds can understand…( i say “understand because drugs, dreams and sex are, i guess, sublime as well, but we don’t understand them..i don’t anyway ). Years of wonder and fear can be evoked in a ten second scene…Its is a motherfucker. ” – Wayne Coyne 2008

Alone in the Wilderness

Alone in the Wilderness

“Alone in the Wilderness” is the story of Dick Proenneke. To live in a pristine land unchanged by man… to roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed… to choose an idyllic site, cut trees and build a log cabin… to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available… to be not at odds with the world, but content with one’s own thoughts and company… Thousands have had such dreams, but Dick Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin, and stayed to become part of the country. This video “Alone in the Wilderness” is a simple account of the day-to-day explorations and activities he carried out alone, and the constant chain of nature’s events that kept him company.
