Aseptic Void - Carnal (VULP-0045) is out now. Italian multi-instrumentalist Davide T, known here as Aseptic Void, has followed up their previous Vulpiano Records EP Alone with an impressive continuation of dark themes and masterful use of static, haunting spaces in their music, including silence.
The theme of the album is the flesh and abominations of the concepts of limit. A black hole of anti-identity in which to get pleasantly lost. The truth of the flesh is multifaceted.

Neurotic Wreck’s I’m Laura Palmer EP (VULP-0044) is the latest offering from the talented UK singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dan Wreck. After positively reviewing his previous music submission Leave Tonight Mixtape Side 2 on A Future in Noise, I was immediately interested in a future Neurotic Wreck release becoming part of the Vulpiano library. Here it is - four tracks that showcase his eclectic sound well, from spooky synth work (“I’m Laura Palmer”) to his impassioned and melancholic singer-songwriter approach (“My Reason to Believe”, “Crowned”) and even a slice of girl-group-esque sweetness (“Show Me Who Broke Your Heart”).

This haunting EP comes from Italian multi-instrumentalist Davide T, who has also performed the soundtrack for video game Slender’s Woods; it is worth noting that two of the tracks from the EP come fromthe aforementioned soundtrack (“Lullaby” and “Incubazione”). Keep watch for another Aseptic Void release coming to Vulpiano in January 2013.

About Alone from Sounds Behind the Corner:
The dark mood of the four tracks represents the artist (composer of music for videogames and short films, among the other things), who, in an introspective catharsis, discovers the concept of his music: minimal ambient fractionated on levels of epidermic perception.
Once again Sounds Behind The Corner draws a line, from the pages of the website, that wants to reach out the readers, yet illuminating another label-less artist in the Italian panorama, a feature which we would like to keep as a practice to grow in mutual respect with the artists.
“Alone” is composed of four tracks, developing a theme: the immersion in the dark introspection is the cure to our anxieties, our fears, a praxis as old as man, archaic as the darkness itself, a shamanic practice viewed today as shady symphonic composition. Good listening.
Vulpiano Records fans - please also check out the great Arizona label Holy Page! I recently purchased Vulpiano affiliate Lately Kind of Yeah’s new release Derzyklus from the label - pictured here are the package contents and delightfully decorated mailer (and yes, that is a random basketball trading card that was included - still riding the dunkwaves!). You can read a review of Derzyklus over at my music blog A Future in Noise. Recommended if you are interested in experimental electronic, ambient, and acoustic guitar work.
Hanetration’s Torn Heat EP (VULP-0041) full of delightfully gauzy textures - dreamlike and at times sinister. Based in London, UK, Hanetration has crafted a work of interest to glitch, drone, and ambient fans alike with this EP. Torn Heat EP is a strong follow-up to Tenth Oar EP (self-released earlier this year), including four tracks that thematically build off of one another, from the minimal, yet adventurously engaging ”Jurassic” to the closer “Flicker”, functioning as a haunting deconstruction of the music that came before.

Tim Doyle’s Micro-Brew (VULP-0040) is an album from an incredibly prolific artist of experimental fractal music out now on Vulpiano Records. He has been active on Last.fm in particular, not only releasing his own music, but in creating a diverse array of radio stations (see also The Radio Room) of everything from New Edge (“New Age that’s not elevator music”) to Chappaqua (“spoken word, avant-garde, post-romantic, noise, drone”).

Background on the tracks from Tim Doyle:
The original sequences are utterly determined by the presets in the MusiNum program, and the result was then converted from MIDI to MP3 with a blend of soundfonts and the MP3, originally twelve-tone, was in turn subject to fairly simple editing procedures to create the first piece, “Get a Grip”. As those procedures included continuous deformation of pitch, and the layering of differently countoured results, it was at that point that they became microtonal.
The pieces form a unified whole despite their different emotional affects, but only the unconscious can fully appreciate that unity. The best way to appreciate them is simply to let them be, like a natural phenomenon observed.
“Get a Grip” is simply a reference to the initial disorientation that the microtonal environment evokes, together with the rhythmic deformations that make it difficult to pin any single tone down and anchor it in pitch-and-time space.
“Shellshock” refers in my mind not so much to the WWI experience as to the aftermath of a B-52 bombing raid, which I read sometime leaves any physically unharmed survivors wandering around in a state of disorientation produced by the pure sonic assault, now ended.
“Agoraphobe” is simply a trip from the safety of home to the scary outside world which seems to overwhelm the agoraphobe and come at him without warning from every direction… at last the process is reversed and we again melt into the quiet and safety of home base.
“Fogblind” created an image in my mind of being at the water’s edge in a port town early in the morning when not only is the entire scene blocked by the fog, but the sounds of the busy city itself reach one only in a muted and attenuated form. It is not at all an unpleasant sensation. Anyone who has lived in a harbor town can appreciate it. (Mine are Buffalo, Milwaukee, and San Francisco.)
About Tim Doyle:
Tim Doyle was born Feb. 12, 1949 in St. Cloud, Minnesota, the oldest of nine children, and spent his childhood in a rural setting on a heavily wooded lake.
He has been making music in one form or another since childhood, when he soloed in a performance of his piano concerto âRhapsody #1â at age 9 in a school production, and had a band piece called âRough Draftâ performed a few years later.
He turned to jazz and blues piano in his teens, but although he studied music theory and composition, he majored in mathematics, his first love, receiving his B.A. in 1968. He was always intrigued by the connections between music and math, and made some early experiments at computer composition in the late sixties.
His love for jazz deepened when he discovered the Blue Note catalog at age 20, starting with Jimmy Smith, Art Blakeyâs Jazz Messengers, Lee Morgan, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Bill Evans. He still plays keyboard in various styles, but has not recorded his improvised music.
In 1999, he ran across a relatively simple fractal music generative program called Musinum, created by Dr. Lars Kindermann in Germany, who left it available as freeware and then moved on to other projects. Most of the sample music created by Musinum users was brief and (with a few notable exceptions) primitive, but the power inherent in the algorithms employed intrigued Doyle.
Bisamråtta’s self-titled release and their first solo offering (VULP-0039) is out now - a beautiful selection of ambient drone tracks: 1. “Dissolve”, 2. “Rörelse av Ljus”, and “3. Sky With Milk”. Bisamråtta (Vlad Luchansky from Russia) describes his approach:
“…since age of 14 I’ve been keen on jazz and always been dedicated to improvisation. While studying music for myself, I’ve managed to play with local and foreign improvisers but I still wanted to expand myself. And then I’ve discovered shoegaze and postrock. These genres are pretty inspiring and it took three years for me to combine and develop different style of playing. While I’m still listening a lot of various music, I play mostly free improvisation with other people, newgaze in a trio called “Kometjakten” and ambient in solo.”
I am very pleased to be adding another fine instrumental release to the Vulpiano catalog.
