Michel Banabila
Uprooted

Uprooted is the latest ambient work by Dutch composer Michel Banabila. He mixes traditional orchestral instruments with electronic instruments. He recorded a bunch of musicians improvising then took samples from the sessions to build the album. A beautiful and restrained recording. CD on Tapu Records.

VoizNoiz

Two decades since it was first released, Michel Banabila's VoizNoiz is now available on vinyl. This is an incredibly playful album, pitching itself at the more listenable end of plunderphonics. It veers from hip-hop to jungle to jazz while always maintaining a core identity that is as silly as it is practiced.

Trespassing

Dutch sound boy Michel Banabila compiled a fantastic showing with Sound Years, on which his multitude electronic talents were made evident to the ambient ear. Trespassing is another assembling of tracks, over two LPs, that see Banabila's life reflected in his art, especially in the record's second half, Marilli, which was made in a drug-hazed time squatting in the '80s. Lots of photos and words come with this record of tinkering electronic varieties and accidental pop trances.

Early Works : Things Popping Up From The Past

Michel Banabila is a busy musician, contributing to theatrical plays, documentaries and all sorts over the years. It can be hard to keep track of such an artist, which makes Early Works: Things Popping Up From The Past a valuable release. True to the title, it picks up an array of tasty, subtle and hard-to-find material from the 1980’s. Out on Bureau B.

More Research From The Same Dept.

Michel Banabila doesn’t care what you say. If he wants to make a record that just crackles for a bit before dropping an insane bass note in every ten seconds, that’s what he’s going to do. And that’s what he did. And it works. More Research from the same Dept. sounds like a critique of kafkaesque bureaucracy, but in fact it’s a masterpiece of quite crazy electronics.
