März Mix 2018

Cover März Mix 2018

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… There are many good reasons to cry out loud. Here we have some. Suicide’s Alan Vega screams about desperate Frankie, who ends his and his family’s life. Abbey Lincoln gets loud in the second part of Max Roach’s Triptych (Prayer / Protest / Peace). And at the end, the best screamer of all times „Screamin‘ Jay Hawkins“ shout out his spell.

Cover Februar Mix 2018

All the tracks are by Japanese born musicians in the fields of electronic and electroacoustic music. But actually only the three women from Nisennenmondai still live in Japan. All the others moved to Europe. Berlin, Paris and London.

Fanzine 2017

Fanzine 2017

Wow, time is passing, years are flying by. Soultmonth is 8 years old now, that means the 8th fanzine with all the 12 collages from Marsplastik is ready. Okay, to be honest, it’s finished since a while now. We had a very nice vernissage at Material bookstore in Zurich with an exhibition of all 96 original collages. It was great to see all at once.

Fanzine Exhibition 2017

So, you can order the 2017 zine (as usual in colourful A5 format) for chf 7.00 (incl postage to switzerland). There are also some of the older ones, just ask. And big thanks for spending your time here!

Cover Dezember Mix 2017

Did you know that the saxophone was invented by Adolphe Sax? Makes sense! Anyway, we start with two tracks from the 70ies from two great american jazz saxophonists. Rahsaan Roland Kirk modified saxophones and other wind instruments and played more than one at a time, also using the circular breathing technique. Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIqLJmlQQNM. Then two more recent tracks. Ben Vice (from the band housewives) used only sounds from the tenor saxophone on his 2017 album Monuments. Also the only instruments on New History Warfare Vol.3 were saxophones recorded live with several microphones but without loops or overdubs played by colin stetson. Like Roland Kirk he also uses the circular breathing technique. And finally english post-punk band Blurt from their first studio album. Ted Milton is going crazy on the sax!

Cover November Mix 2017

Motors, gear-wheels, sawblades, reels, rubber bands and electromechanics. That’s how this music was put together. Homemade robot musicians and bricolage mechanics. Pierre Bastien builts clunky Mecchano music machines and plays with them together magical Jazz. Stephen Cornford records the mechanics of walkmans and reel tape machines. Rie Nakajima let small motors play various objects. Mo Wolpert from Berliner Ring builds beautiful clockwork-like music machines and Strotter Inst. modifies Lenco turntables with rubber bands and builds musical installations. Jiflure records his suitcases with mbiras and percussions, played by motorised mechanics.

Cover Oktober Mix 2017

Sci-Fi-Dub from outer space Sure, makes sense. Delays used as time machines, repetitions as passages through time, ongoing future. The bass creates black holes and sucks everything in. The riddim keeps the spaceship moving and the dub sirens and laser beams are zapping in space. Dub is future, dub is science fiction.

Cover August Mix 2017

Cluster was the reduced version of the band Kluster. Without Conrad Schnitzler, Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius started their duo in 1971. 40 years later, Roedelius even started Qluster with Onnen Bock. Moebius died in 2015, while Roedelius is still bizzy releasing lots of music in various constellations. Together with Michael Rother of Neu! They also formed Harmonia in 1974 and Harmonia 76 with Brian Eno in the late 90ies. Kluster and Cluster as well as some Qluster music are on the experimental side of Krautrock. Using mostly guitars, synthesizer and other electronics.
