IF25 – REMNANTS – ‘TONAL FRAGMENTS’ C28
Edition of 100. Remnants is the tape music project of Ryan Marino (Imminent Frequencies) and after some time “Tonal Fragments” is Remnants’ return to IF. Using only the sounds of crude cassette tape loops, “Fragments” presents seven minimal compositions of hiss and decay that are informed by a sense of shifting currents and glacial passages. A haunting lullaby of collaged entropy and aural grit form the most fully realized release from this project to date.
IF26 – A HANDFUL OF DUST – ‘FROM A SOUNDTRACK TO THE ANABASE OF ST-JOHN PERSE’ C42
Edition of 150. A Handful of Dust is the duo of New Zealand noisemakers Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and Alastair Galbraith. Incorporating elements of drone, spoken word, minimalism, improvisation and utilizing everything from violin to toy telephone, The Dust crafts a genuinely unique style of free-form music. “From A Soundtrack To The Anabase Of St-John Perse” a tape originally released via Russell’s own Corpus Hermeticum imprint nearly two decades ago finds the duo under the influence of the 1924 poem of the same name and at the height of their creative experimentation.
IF23 – EMACIATOR – ‘FINALITY AND CONTRADICTION’ C34
Edition of 100. Emaciator is the long-running project of Los Angeles native, Jon Borges (Pedestrian Deposit, Monorail Trespassing). Over the past decade Emaciator has evolved from its early industrial beginnings into the psychedelic bliss it emits today. The first Emaciator release in four years finds Borges crafting ambient columns of sound with masterful attention to texture and depth.
