Yair Elazar Glotman
Études

Yair Elazar Glotman learned to play contrabass the way that classical music demands: practice toward an intuitive understanding of performance. As always, though, his work is critical of what we're taught to remember music as being, and Études is an aggressive exploration of his instrument free of its pre-established role. Études is the material sound of an instrument as well as the sounds it makes.

Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext.

Ucc Harlo
United

UCC Harlo (aka Annie Garlid, a collaborator of Holly Herndon) makes her debut with an album six years in the making, representing a journey from classically-trained orchestral violinist to experimental producer. United features classical baroque styles filtered and re-focused, amongst synth drones, field recordings and much else besides, forming a fascinating and detailed whole. On Subtext.

James Ginzburg
Six Correlations

James Ginzburg might be better known to you as 50% of Emptyset, that most crushing of electronic music projects. This solo record, which was put together for a Berlin commission earlier this year, engages with a wider palette than that group, with folk musics of many different hues mixing with generative composition. Six Correlations is out on Subtext.

Compound

Yair Elazar Glotman is a sound artist and composer and on Compound he teams up with Marcello Silvio Busato and Rieko Okuda to bring percussion and piano sounds respectively to his solo contrabass explorations. Glotman’s experimentations rely on repetition and in pushing the trio’s instruments in new directions through unusual techniques.

FIS and Rob Thorne
Clear Stones

This first-time team-up of two New Zealand talents is an intriguing one. Maori sound artist Rob Thorne generally has a more approach to sound that is more abstract and more rooted in acoustic instruments than electronics producer FIS, but the space where they meet in the middle on Clear Stones is special territory indeed, each artist working around the other. Out on Subtext.

Emptyset
Medium

Subtext (Roly Porter, Vex’d) re-press Emptyset’s 2012 mini-LP (which means it’s an EP, then) Medium. The bass-bothering duo recorded these tracks on location in a ruined Gothic mansion near Gloucester, and the reverberant surroundings add extra depth to these moody cross-breeds of dubstep and electro-acoustic composition.
