Both electronica Lebanese artists Munma and Litter have just released their new albums on Syrphe.
You can listen and order them on our index page (which I am slightly redesigning by now) or eventually on Bandcamp (pay attention, prices differ).
C-drík is currently composing a track for a board game called Rockwell, you can visit the Kickstarter page to see what it is about (and pre-order it if you like) and see a short clip with C-drík's composition on Youtube. You can also listen to a short version of the track on Soundcloud. The complete version of the track will be about twenty minutes long.
The /ˈnɔɪzɪz/ festival is taking place from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th June at the grounds of the b-05 Montabaur choosing as its theme the intercultural relevance of hearing as a multi-medial phenomenon. The festival is an initiative organised by Cultural Science students at the University of Koblenz.
The starting point is that globalisation in mass media is frequently only perceived as an economic rather than a cultural phenomenon which may be interpreted differently depending on the location. Above all hearing - hence the phonetic title - will be emphasised with DJ-sets, live-music, films and performances.
In addition the use of a silent disco, sound-installations, presentations and workshops demonstrate that 'noise' is interpreted differently - either subjectively or culturally - within the realms of sound in general or music in particular.
The festival will have some of our latest releases for sale.
