MMMD
Egoismo

The prolific MMMΔ (also referred to as ‘MMMD’) deliver their 11th album of original material in little over a decade. Emerging soon after their soundtrack for Lukas Feigelfeld’s horror movie Hagazussa, Egoismo is as challenging and bizarre as ever, a mixture of spooky chanting and spine-tingling strings.

MMMD
Hagazussa

MMMD see their score for Lukas Feigelfeld’s Gothic horror flick Hagazussa - A Heathen’s Curse released by Antifrost. This is as dark as the ‘dark ambient’ genre gets before it turns into full-on doom. The record is full of unsettling drones, eerie plumes of sound and snippets of liturgical chanting. Might be a good idea to have some friends around when you listen to this one lest you become properly spooked.

MMMD
Andromache

Leading chamber droners MMMD follow up their monolithic, triple 10" from the year gone with a tape in homage to and mourning a good friend. All recorded from within an apartment, it's a rework of the duo's old material, this time coming in a different but just as sparse set up: piano and sine waves mark this sorta-remix release.

Ensemble Phoenix Basel plays ILIOS
El anillo que sujeta el mundo de la forma al mundo de la idea

ILIOS, the solo project of one half of chamber-doom favourites Mohammad, worked with Ensemble Phoenix Basel to create this colossal avant-classical piece. El anillo que sujeta el mundo de la forma al mundo de la idea is heavy with a Sunn-ish density, the ensemble’s acoustic instruments weaved around a thick core of ILIOS electronics. CD release on Antifrost.

Mohammad
Lamnè Gastama

Mohammad make chamber drone, taking cellos and other traditional acoustic instruments and sustaining them, as if they're being sharpened like a knife. The result is a sound that's both unsettling and unprecedented. They've already released one record this year, 'Zo Rél Do', which they claim is part of a trilogy that "explores the sounds of the geographical area between 34°N - 42°N &  19° E - 29° E". Of course. The next record in the project is 'Lamnè Gastama', and it promises the same dark, unwavering sound. 

Mohammad
Segondè Saleco

‘Segondè Saleco’ is the final installment of a trilogy exploring the sounds of the geographical area between 34°Ν - 42°Ν & 19°Ε – 29°Ε. Producing their sound through custom made instruments Mohammad weave together their dark atmospheric textures and low frequencies through the distant but unmistakable influence of mystic folk.

Mohammad
Roto Vildblomma

This debut work from Mohammed was first released in 2009. Roto Vildblomma is a powerful sound-mass of strings and electronics, merging impressively into a compelling harmonic whole. This reissue, courtesy of Antifrost, presents the album in brand new artwork, and is narrowly limited to just 111 copies.

Pèkisyon Funebri

Major new business from Greek drone-folkers Mohammad. Pékisyon Funebri is a triple 10” set of thick, cloudy atmospheres, with cello, electronics and distant haunted vocals all contributing. Although the whole is certainly greater, and more inscrutable, than the sum of the parts. Out on Antifrost.

Mohammad / Sophie Cooper / Dundas
Gig

NORMAN RECORDS PRESENTS: Mohammad (ANTIFROST / PAN ) / Sophie Cooper / Dundas 02/09/16 :: FUSE Art Space, Bradford Join your sorta local record store Norman as we present an evening of drone and improvised noise at Bradford's Fuse art space! This is the second in a semi-frequent series of shows from yours truly: Mohammad ( ANTIFROST / PAN ) This Athens chamber-doom duo came to prominence in the extended experimental network through their record trilogy for Antifrost, in which they used their custom-made cello drone to express a “geographical survey” of their bearings. They’ve long been masters of this rather unique craft, creating an acoustic ambience both patient and intense; their origin story, ‘Rito Vildblomma’, contains much the same atmospheres as that of their newest work, proving them rather good at running in place. Their live show promises a wall of sound for you to climb. Sophie Cooper Local Todmorden musician Sophie Cooper has so much to her musical oeuvre at this point that I just want to use the word “great” as a genre tag. Her sounds are informed by both noise-making and songwriting, foggy drone and the sounds that punctuate it. She’s performed as part of a rotating-cast ambient alldayer, improvised submerged in echo on a recent record with Delphine Dora and has a great record called ‘Our Aquarius’, that dangles meandering guitar abstractions off the edge of the earth.  Dundas Our experimental resident Laurie Johnson recently bought a cello, so we thought it prudent to add him to the bill. Usually he packs your records and fixes the office cables; in his spare time he’s a drone aficionado and music researcher with a penchant for building unyielding modular synths and knowing the solos to Mastadon songs. His set will probably involve electronics swaying like a see-saw between ambience and techno; could be minimal, could be chaos. Who knows.
