Oren Ambarchi, Kassel Jaeger, James Rushford
Face Time

I’m at a crossroad in my life, here: I’m so excited both at the prospect of a follow-up to the immense ‘Pale Calling’ LP and of an upcoming world cup that I keep billing this as the latest collaboration between Oren Ambarchi, Kassel Jaeger and Marcus Rashford. He’s a really good footballer, and might score a few mor...view item »

Francis Plagne & crys cole
Two Words

Here’s something thats nice to see: two artists from really rather distinctly different areas finding common ground on which to collaborate. crys cole is a subtle sound artist working with some fairly abstract material, whereas Francis Plagne is a songwriter and player of keyboards and organs. Two Word...view item »

Eiko Ishibashi and Darin Gray
Ichida

Eiko Ishibashi and Darin Gray are two perhaps slightly under-the-radar artists, though they move in the orbits of the likes of Jim O’Rourke, Chris Corsano and Loren Connors. Their collaboration here is a live flute, electronics, piano, and double bass impr...view item »

AMM
AMMMusic

Avant garde protean Oren Ambarchi slices through the dull swathe of experimental mediocrity to take us straight to the source of some of the most challenging music ever committed to tape with this first ever vinyl reissue of AMM’s 1966 debut album. I remember first listening to this startling record by t...view item »

Joe Talia
Tint

'Tint' is the first album from Aussie native Joe Talia in over a decade, and it's a doozy. An electro-suite that brings together modular synths, Revox tape machines and slamming percussion (as is Talia's M.O.), this record veers between austere minimalism and extraordinary lushness, his dynamic free jazz revealing a playful spon...view item »

Keiji Haino / Jim O'Rourke / Oren Ambarchi
This Dazzling, Genuine "Difference" Now Where Shall It Go?

Startling to note that this is already the eighth release from the free rock supergroup. The trio are masters at wrenching great textural and dynamic variety from the basic power trio format, which here is augmented with some unusual instrumental additions. O’Rourke plays EMS Synthi as well as often heavily-effected bass, ...view item »

Arnold Dreyblatt
Second Selection

Someone let Oren Ambarchi (owner / operator of the Black Truffle label) have a rummage around the unreleased-material archives of Arnold Dreyblatt, to all our benefit. Eleven pieces over two sides of vinyl, Second Selection is full of essential string-drone experiments, modified guitar works, and all so...view item »

Oren Ambarchi
Grapes From The Estate

The particular ambiance this album has makes me a little too uncomfortable for it to be ideal sleep music for me, but I haven't tried it under ideal conditions, so I can't knock it. "Corkscrew" is an edgy drone. "Girl with the Silver Eyes" has an otherworldly beauty, especially toward the end when the guitar is emphasised. Ambarchi's more "music...view item »

Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label presents the first ever reissue of this 1980 collaboration of David Toop, Steve Beresford, Paul Burwell and Max Eastley, major improvising musicians all. Whirled Music features exclusively whirled instruments: e...view item »

Alvin Lucier
Criss Cross / Hanover

The composer, best known for his 1970  tape piece I Am Sitting in a Room, composed Criss-Cross for the twin electric guitars of Stephen O’Malley and Oren Ambarchi. Each player e-bows a single semitone, alternately rising and falling in pitch, revealing a surprising variety of tonal effects and phenome...view item »

3/4 Had Been Eliminated
Speak To Me

3/4 Had Been Eliminated is the trio of Claudio Rocchetti, Stefano Pilia and recently PAN-released tape music extraordinaire Valerio Tricoli. Speak To Me is an intoxicating whirl of electroacoustic textures (and ‘real’ instruments), all sliced and (re)assembl...view item »
