"17 Encores" follows the previous
work by Daniele Bogon (published exclusively in digital format and
with the name Alley), enriching the 10 tracks contained in "17" with 5
other tracks.
Through an imaginary landscape made of soft lights
and shadows, between moments of total abstraction in the Absolute to
more evocative moments of cinematic inspiration, the intimate and
personal soundtrack that develops in the first 10 tracks of this album
lead the listener in his inner journey, directed to the center of his
own private and hidden universe.
The surrounding sound space is
created with the fusion of piano notes, strings and synthesizers in
balance with elements of field recording and studio
work.
"Encores", the second part of the album, presents five new
tracks of a more electronic and experimental matrix, including two
reworks; the first, "Batman is Bruce Wayne" is the version of the song
as proposed in the audio/video live set; the second "Airport" sees the
participation of Push Against New Fakes who has decomposed the song by
reconstructing it in a completely new form.
The front cover and the
design of "17 Encores" and the single "Batman is Bruce Wayne" are
designed and made by Valeria
Salvo.

The first OM tape of this
year will be released on 31/01/19 – the second part in our ongoing
Echonomy Split Series, which might be only a split of sorts this time:
Le Mépris/Le Mépris. 

40 tapes + DL-Code, artwork, as always, from
Dicey Studios.

Look and listen:
https://otomatikmuziek.bandcamp.com/album/echonomy-split-series-2

Echonomy Series is looking to select works already released
in small editions or download-onlies and to recontextualise them. The
recordings put together here are from one and the same artist – or
are not, considering that 10 years have passed between sides A and B
and Le Mépris might be rather a means for creating music than a real
person.

Around 12 years ago, when a crowd mostly socialized
with electronic music discovered classical instrumentation and new age
composition, Le Mépris was subject to a minor media hype. The persona
Reiko Matane was too good to be true: a young, fragile japanese woman
with an alias from a Godard film creating exquisitly solemn piano
miniatures, replacing Tokyo’s constant humming with solitude,
creating a music as fragile as expected from a girl and as cool as any
given dude’s selected classical ambient vinyl collection. No one
wondered.

Back then, the real person behind Reiko and me sat
down over a drink on a few occassions and wondered, but mostly, I was
happy that my friend’s music got the attention it deserved, because
nonetheless, Le Mépris‘ music is one of a certain solemnity and sad
elegance. Its melancholy is excessive in that it leaves no room for
any other feeling, it is cleansing; a kind of no-prisoners-taken
ambient music you have to listen to, even if you attempt not to.

Now, Le Mépris is back. The two new pieces premiering here as a
counterpart to a selection of previously released tracks find Le
Mépris crawling deeper down into the dark realms of solitude; gone is
the innocent pop appeal of the former releases. While delay and reverb
were accompanying voices in the past, leaving ghostly traces of piano,
these dynamics have vanished in favour of effect-laden dirges where
the piano of ten years ago is more like a mirroring input for a
growing, self-feeding system. These new transmissions are recalling
the old recordings, they are a recorded memory, an ancient organism:
lowest possible movement, polyphone rustling and humming, a music
working on getting silent.

Dunkelheit Productions is proud to
present the new, epic 25-minute release from Lousberg, "The Death Of
Humanity;" a dark ambient masterpiece. 
For fans of: Raison
d'etre, Klaus Schulze & Brian Eno

"The Death Of Humanity"
will be available in vinyl edition mid-February.

The CD and
digital editions are available NOW at:
https://dunkelheitprod.bandcamp.com/.

With “The Death Of
Humanity,” Lousberg achieves what most composers fail to do so in a
lifetime, much less a career. Transcending styles of dark ambient and
dungeon synth, Lousberg is responsible for the merger of worlds; both
specific and abstract. Intensely contemplative, “The Death Of
Humanity” offers itself as an existential soundtrack.

Stream
the album in its entirely
at:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qASXNZCwLbk&t=23s

Lousberg guides a select few textures through landscapes both
subterranean and otherworldly, somehow molding them as one in a 25
minute epic composition. Essentially, “The Death Of Humanity”
exists somewhere between heaven and earth; between the universe and
darkest corner of a remote location of the listener’s room. Warm,
low tones merged with high, cold planes. Through cavernous landscapes
and perpetual colonnades. Through timeless loneliness and endless
emotional collapse, what Lousberg creates is both intensely human and
otherworldly.

Lousberg gives soundtrack to previously
unchartered parts of the soul. Is this this “The Death Of
Humanity” or an “imitation of life?”

Founded in the year
2007 as a brain child of JanuZ (aka BinZynisch fka Lupan), Lousberg
was born with the ambition was to create a project which is free from
the word "genre."

2013 was the year of the first official
release! It was a Split CD with Austrians "Uruk Hai", and consisted of
a mixture between nature inspired Ambient with folk influences
peppered in. A Tape with the name "Lurid Dreams Of A Forgotten",
released under the own small label, followed a short while after. This
and the following release "The Fog Beneath My Feet" under the
well-known label "Dunkelheit Productions" aimed for the Dark Ambience
domain, the latter one with significant ritualistic influences.

Lousberg will never follow any course which can easily be
predetermined by anyone! Lousberg is – like live and the death –
unforeseeable! Lousberg isn't a courtesy. Lousberg is just an
emotion!

Paulina Cassidy: Phantom Gardens
Available from Projekt website / Bandcamp


Dreampop, swirling atmospheric, and luscious fairytale-like dreams…

“Both earthly and ethereal, her music, lyrics and images guide us through an alluring world that seems strange yet familiar, distant but as close as your heart. The veil of the dreamworld is near; the Eternal Feminine is calling.” -Steve Davis, Associate Producer HEARTS OF SPACE Radio Program

Paulina returns with a new album of sensuous, mesmerizing atmospheric compositions to reinvigorate the jaded soul. Using her sultry voice as an ethereal instrument in combination with fluidly-layered otherworldly soundscapes, Phantom Gardens draws the listener into a fantastic world of fairytale-like dreams. Ethereal whispers, synths, samples and electronic beats are pure poetry for your fascination and delight.

We first met Paulina Cassidy with her hypnotic version of “Frosty the Snowman” on Projekt’s 2012 Ornamental holiday sampler. In 2014, we were given Sugar Wingshiver, a full album of whimsical and lushly-textured songs. 2018 brought Drawing Up A Storm, an album of aqueous melodies.

Fruitful with a circuitry of reflective ambient tracks and ethereal dreampop, Phantom Gardens entices the listener into a landscape of lush celestial gardens sprawling from the borderlines of dreams. Connect with the minds of ghostly orchids and fly away with flowering sylphs. Glide through galactic gardens of starlight and slip into the underworld with a kingsnake. Fusing melancholy resonances of earthly and spiritual realms, the thirteen songs of Phantom Gardens are hauntingly graceful and serene, conjuring a personal haven in which to unwind, renew, and recharge.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Paulina paints, writes, and crafts songs from her home studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Creatress of tarot and oracle card decks, Paulina always has something new in-the-works. Her audio catalogue also includes four self-released CDs, an holiday EP Projekt release, and two full-album Projekt releases. Visit her website at: www.paulina.ws
