Maria W Horn
Epistasis

Maria W Horn of XKatedral follows on from her 2018 debut, 'Kontrapoetik', with 'Epistasis'. The Swedish composer combines the worlds of avant-garde and electronic in a way that explores minimalism à la Phil Niblock and visceral massiveness like Anna Von Hausswolff’s organ-powered songs. On Hallow Ground.

Mats Erlandsson
Minnesmärke

Originating as a commission from the Non Existent Center for an artist residency in his native Sweden, 'Minnesmärke' is a two-part suite of dreamlike electronic and acoustic instrumentation from Mats Erlandsson. The record was made in collaboration with Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble’s Hillary Jeffery, violinist Gaianeh Pilossian and regular creative foil Yair Elazar Glotman. 

Still Und Dunkel
Abandoned (Limited Deluxe Edition)

Still Und Dunkel is the project of three artists - Christoph Brünggel, Benny Jaberg and Pascal Arnold. 'Abandoned' is a collection of ten pieces of music that accompany the trio’s audiovisual live shows. The record is the culmination of an ambitious eight-year project of archiving images and sound that show the result of human progression being left behind. Still Und Dunkel is most certainly an apt name for this moody, murky music - Prurient is a good comparison.

FUJI||||||||||TA
iki

The first full-length album from Japanese sound artist Fujita Yosuke - a.k.a. FUJI||||||||||TA - in nine years arrives on Swiss imprint Hallow Ground. Iki follows a number of collaborations with the likes of Yamataka Eye and Suzuki Akio, and consists of four lengthy and meditative pieces recorded with a custom pipe organ that Fujita constructed himself over ten years ago. 

Miki Yui
Aperio!

The seventh solo album from Düsseldorf-based artist Miki Yui, Aperio! is a collection of music that typically pokes and prods at the boundaries in our collective minds between the real and the imaginary. Keeping with the title which denotes the origins of the word ‘April’ (meaning ‘open’), these seven tracks have a hallucinatory, revelatory quality. 

Siavash Amini
A Mimesis of Nothingness

The fourth studio album on Swiss label Hallow Ground for Iranian artist Siavash Amini. Created with fellow countrymen 9T Antiope, A Mimesis of Nothingness was inspired by the photographs of Tehran taken by Nooshin Shiafee, and interprets the landscapes into sonic vistas characterised by tension and haunted beauty. 

Frédéric D Oberland and Irena Z. Tomažin
Arba, Dâk Arba

High brow fun here on a soundtrack to an installation by Fanny Béguély by Frédéric D Oberland and Irena Z. Tomažin. It features Oberland's heavily treated hurdy gurdy accompanying Tomazin's distinct vocal patterns. The unusual instrumentation gives this a unique flavour and a darkly psychedelic droney sound with a mystical and sometimes unsettling air.  

Marja Ahti
The Current Inside

Centred around the theme of currents, both natural and artificial, The Current Inside is the second studio album by Finnish-based composer and musician Marja Ahti for the Hallow Ground label. It contains one mesmeric side-long piece, ‘The Altitudes’, backed by five shorter but no less stunning pieces on the reverse side. 

Roland Bucher
Viaje

Roland Bucher has spent ten years developing and building his own instrument. An instrument he has wonderfully named the noise table. His debut album, Viaje, is made using the instrument with Bucher employing classical composition techniques and exploratory experimentation to achieve his goals. It goes without saying, this is pretty much unlike anything else.

Remo Seeland
Hollow Body

The first album under his real name, Hollow Body was inspired by a revelatory physical experience that Swiss artist Remo Seeland had while travelling on the New York subway. Recorded between that city, Zurich and Reykjavik and implementing field recordings from urban and rural settings, it’s an album preoccupied by ideas of perception. 

9T Antiope & Siavash Amini
Harmistice

Four gripping works of odd contradictions, ambiguity and intensity - just as the punning title promises - from an Iranian team-up of sombre duo 9T Antiope and the ever-busy Siavash Amini. As ever with 9T, lyricist Sara Bigdeli Shamloo gives, with a clear and handsome voice, expressive textuality to a style where it is usually absent.

Reinier Van Houdt
Igitur Carbon Copies

Reinier van Houdt is an excellent pianist, known for playing contemporary classical music by Michael Pisaro and other such notables. But he’s got more than piano up his sleeve: Igitur Carbon Copies also features an array of cracked noises from radios, tapes, and David Lynch samples, as well as spoken word delivered by Current 93’s main man David Tibet! My my. Out on Hallow Ground.

PLYXY
Gloryland

After being issued as a small cassette run by Ascetic House in early 2018 PLYXY’s Gloryland now gets a re-release via Hallow Ground. As is the want of the Swiss label, this record is a pretty frosty and demanding listen. The gnarled, weary synthscapes here recall Forest Swords and fellow HG act Dedekind Cut. Closer ‘March Of Youth’ breaks out into full-on noise.

Colin Potter
Rank Sonata

Colin Potter has been orbiting the centre of the UK underground music scene(s) for his whole career, as a member of Nurse With Wound and Current 93 and through a stack of other collaborations. Rank Sonata is a fully solo work however, and finds Potter wandering his electronics down dreamy ambient pathways. On Hallow Ground.

Distant Animals
Lines

Very intellectual drone from Distant Animals. Daniel Alexander Hignell is an artist, musician, and more. Lines is inspired by such greats of minimalism as La Monte Young and Morton Feldman. Most intriguingly, this comes with 4 postcards showing "land-art interventions" made during the creation of the album. Love a bit of interdisciplinary art me.

zK
Last Night

Swiss tykes Hallow Ground (Dedekind Cut, Goner) make their latest foray into the sonic arts via this six-track from the always-intriguing zK. Last Night is a slippery listen, constantly shifting and never allowing the listener to settle. Numbers like ‘Fugitive II’ see eerie glitches and processed pianos flitting around the headphones in a manner that recalls the spookier elements of Yves Tumor’s sound.

Dedekind Cut
The Expanding Domain

A full and complete sounding record from Dedekind Cut entitled The Expanding Domain. A mixture of droning electronic sounds contrasted with trance-like melodies and subtle piano notes, makes this record a piece of art on the blank slate of an artist. Created in New York, Seoul and Berlin and released on ‘Hallow Ground’, this record is available on Vinyl LP.

Siavash Amini
TAR

Containing an ocean-sized depth of emotion and meaning, TAR is Tehran-based producer Siavash Amini's 2017 brainchild. Comprised of four offerings, including the mammoth twelve-minutes-plus tracks 'A Dream's Frozen Reflection' and 'The Dust We Breathe', this is a sophisticated take on modern drone and classical genres.

Norman Westberg
The All Most Quiet

Having been in numerous, yet short lived, projects Norman Westberg is undoubtedly most known for his work in Swans. Alongside, his solo work has been constant. Putting most of it out himself, he has now turned to Hallow Ground for this two track album. Opposing his rhythmic power in Swans, his solo work is far more abstract and consists of blending tonal and atonal guitar swells.. The Swans terror and tension is still very much in there.

Driftmachine
Eis Heauton

On Eis Heauton Driftmachine programmed their modular synthesizers with self-generating patches and then just let them jam. The results are the Berlin-based electronic duo’s most fascinating work yet. This is no technical experiment though. Heavy dub atmospherics grind against harsh snares and techno tempos. Vinyl LP from the Hallow Ground label.
