Ricardo Donoso

Denovali (Nadia Struiwigh, Her Name Is Calla) drop the new LP from Brazilian artist Ricardo Donoso. Calibrate sees Donoso going even deeper down the dark IDM/techno path than he did on June’s collaborative LP with Thiago Kochenborger. Frenzied soundscapes like ‘Rendering The Ineffable’ recall Arca, Phase Fatale and Bonaventure in equal measure. Powerful stuff.

Scuba Death
The Worm At The Core

The name Scuba Death sounds like it belongs to some psych-rock group, but actually the name refers to a nearly-fatal experience that Brazilian composer Ricardo Donoso had while scuba diving. The brush with doom pushed him to express himself creatively: The Worm At The Core, an album centred around thunderstorm field recordings, is the latest chapter of the project. On Further Records.

Scuba Death
Nitrogen Narcosis

The minimal techno of Scuba Death feels subordinate to the natural environment on 'Nitrogen Narcosis': on "Receptor Antagonist", he pauses for half a minute to listen to waves creasing on a beach, before launching into a full-bodied workout of underfoot beats and patchwork synth. Richard Donoso is the fellow behind Scuba Death, and 'Nitrogen Narcosis' sees him sampling field recordings and found sounds in order to make a sound that is as natural as it is electronic.
