Announcing the release of the album Anahata Naad by HypnoGogue.

https://hypnogogue.bandcamp.com/album/anahata-naad-2

HypnoGogue is an electronic music project created by Pierce McDowell in 2017. The music is computer based acousmatic music with a wide range of influences, starting from a DIY strategy picked up from punk, a nod to "krautrock" and veering to the sound collage experiments of electroacoustic music. The first full length album is Anahata Naad, released in April 2018. McDowell is currently based in New Mexico after residing in San Francisco for many years.

McDowell is a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist who started playing music at the age of 5 and has been musically active professionally since the 1970's. He spent his high school years as a military dependent in Germany where listening to Radio Luxembourg and seeing the experimental and "kosmische" sounds of contemporary German bands were early influences. In 1977 he was a founding member of the seminal Texas punk band Teenage Popeye, whose sole recording, the 4 song EP "Modern Problems" has become a collector's item for punk archivists. At that time he also studied electronic music at the University of Texas. Jon Appleton and Morton Subotnik did residencies at the university at that time and Subotnik's music on his Buchla Music System was a major influence, along with the music of Stockhausen, Xenakis, Ligeti and Lutoslawski. In 1980 he relocated to San Francisco where he played in numerous rock bands over the years including a brief stint with Sonny Simmons. There he studied Hindustani music with Ali Akbar Khan for 5 years. He was an original member of the world prog fusion band Azigza who achieved some notoriety and critical acclaim in progressive music circles and with a series of performances on the progressive music festival circuit in the late 1990's to 2007. Around that time McDowell met and became friends with Daevid Allen and eventually other members of the band Gong. Allen appears on Azigza's first eponymous CD release. Gilli Smyth and he formed Gong Matrices who toured in the USA and Europe and released the album "Parade" in 2004. He relocated to New Mexico in 2012 where he remains active with HypnoGogue and as a session musician having performed on a number of albums, including several by the space rock recording project Spirit's Burning.

“Sound Flocking” is the recording of Long龙 performance of 21st
January 2018 at Studio Museo Francesco Messina in Milan, for the
finissage of Vanni Cuoghi “Invisible Sun” (curated by Nicoletta
Castellaneta and Giancarlo Lacchin).
The performance is a path
between sound and graphic design, and the concept of the exhipbition
is embedded in the sing-shape of the crow.
Natural sounds merge
with drones and electronics, and the composition is based on the
repetition of clusters, a continuum that fills the space and sound
textures built on the deconstruction of peception.
A flock of
sound crows, the image of flight, the patterns in the air, only
apparently designed by chaos.

A mix of Opera style vocals, ambient, drone and
electronica – released at the end of March 2018 – CD (limited
edition) & digital

"6X0” is an album built on contrasts,
between lights and shadows, sacred and profane, good and evil. Alberto
Nemo (‘) seems to come from this world and his music is as intense
as ever. The 6 tracks of the album were thought and written to be
played backwards, in a palindrome way. The result is a minimalist
experiment with strong and rigorous foundations. The listener's memory
can go to the “Eyes Wide Shut” soundtrack, written by Jocelyn Pook
for Stanley Kubrick and experimental artists like Coil.His music is
living in balance between classical and sacred music, gothic and
gloomy atmospheres, a world in wich we walk through darkness, and the
only light is the mystic and extatic voice of Alberto Nemo. All the
songs were composed using 432 HZ tuning.
Tracklist: 1. Avon Repus /
2. Risveglio / 3. Iamaes / 4. Otium /5. 31 /6.

Electronic pop / dark synth band Huminoida is about to
release the second full-length album in April as digital, CD and LP+CD
formats. "The Grey Area" offers nine tracks of human emotions from the
dark end of the scale. Melancholy synthpop, angsty new wave and
atmospheric beauty form the musical background for direct,
unpretentious lyrics.

"This wasn't an easy album for me to
make. The last three years haven't been exactly euphoric in my life or
in the world in general, and the anxiety of the times has affected the
lyrics and overall mood of the tracks. There's no science fiction or
surrealism this time, the themes on this album are very much of this
world, this reality. That is one of the reasons why I decided to call
it "The Grey Area" explains K-K-, the sole member of the
band.

– CD with large 20x20cm booklet – Release date April
6th
– Digital with PDF-booklet – Release date April 6th
