the new FFH is going to kill, Dunn's track record is immaculate
has anyone tried calling the NRR hotline? the B-side of the tape is playing there, unless Crumer changed it recently
>2016 Releases you are looking forward to
the album dilloway is doing for dais records
the new hospital comp
the new genocide organ
hopefully the 3rd part of the puce mary & loke rahbek LP trilogy/whatever frederikke hoffmeier does
whatever comes out on fusty cunt/hanson/hospital/freak animal/tesco
the Crumer LP
the skin crime box-set
No Rent announced this? If FEATHERBOARD! lives up to its promise of being the future Crumer sound, then we have a lot to look forward to. Really cool release (pic related)
>New Hospital Comp
Is this Boomkat only? If 'Yes', I think its too much money. I would listen to this for Kevin Drumm and Alexandro Cortini let alone Prurient but that is a step price and there are a million other tapes I can get.
>Skin Crime Box-Set
Announced? This would be one of the other aforementioned tapes I purchase.
>Whatever comes out on FUSTY CUNT
Looking this up now.
>No Rent announced this?
no rent isn't going to be putting it out, depravity label is
i think he recorded the LP before blood & tahoe and featherboard, so where he goes from featherboard onward is anyone's guess
>Is this Boomkat only?
it looks that way at the moment
i thought the price of it was perfectly affordable, but then again i have no idea how much shipping it to the US would add to that price
>Announced? This would be one of the other aforementioned tapes I purchase.
fernow mentioned working on it in one of the hospital newsletters last year but divulged no specifics
it ain't a tape set though, according to haras and aspa it's a 20 CD(yes, twenty) box-set
>Shipping to US
That's my issue. I have the money, it's the principle.
Did you like FEATHERBOARD! and BLOOD & TAHOE? I was really into both, more so FEATHERBOARD!
>American Noise's Favorite Bad Guy
i thought blood & tahoe was fine, though it's suited best for background/reading music than it is for focused and attentive listening
featherboard i have not yet heard and don't even own
crumer has expressed a wish to have featherboard and the forthcoming tapes collected onto a single CD down the road, cocaine death-style, and i'm hoping he finds a label interested in doing that
Is this your blog? Cause it's awesome.
>Go to site
>See first thing posted is DETERGE - Deity
You've done well brother.
I see CLOTTING everywhere these days. I intend to give them a listen. It's supposed to be like a NO-COAST HNW thing? I'll find out for myself.
>Pic related...the sounds I'm sounding into. PrurientBro uploaded this a bit back.
>I thought BLOOD & TAHOE was fine, though it's suited for background/reading music
Agreed. It is such an odd one though. I wouldn't read when listening to it but...after a long day at work, it's a cool little warm up before you put on the heavy harshness.
For whatever reason, I dislike the single CD idea. I like these little C-10 tapes. They're like the tape equivalent of a 7 inch (a bit longer I suppose). I think they have their own personality as an individual package. Zen Zsigo has a cool interview on the subject. When I first read it I could only think "That's just cause you want us to buy the tape...." I get it now.
Unrelated but related, anybody VHS here?
I've always been into film/video (trolling /tv/) so wondering if anybody has found anything cool lately in that realm. Fuck /tv/ fuck STAR WARS. I'm a bitter cunt.
I'm really interested in the Servile Scum 'Fuck Punk' CS he posted a while back.
i have mixed feelings about compilations of material originally released as singles and EPs as well(though how well such releases function or don't function has more to do with the nature of the compiled material than the format itself), but i've also got enough good faith in crumer's judgment to believe he would make it work
if the CD ever actually comes out, that is
>wondering if anybody has found anything cool lately in that realm
it's been months since i've seen a movie from start to finish
this was pretty fascinating viewing though
>Is this Boomkat only?
US distribution will be handled by Forced Exposure. Given it's an edition of over 400 copies, I don't think there will be any issue for those of us in the states in getting it easy.
It's always been beyond me why Hospital has chosen a UK-based outfit as their chief distributor.
What did you think?
I think I'm going to do the two releases.
Not /noise/ but not unrelated (/bleep/) I just found SURGEON'S Blog. This is a good day today.
You waiting for the US Price tag too? I've been really into Alessandro Cortini lately cause I'm also /synth/ so I think I will get it just for that if it is a reasonable price.
Also, final MACRONYMPA box set bro!
Just did this: https://soundcloud.com/miner-monster/untiled_test01flac
Is it shit? How do I improve?
Also, wasn't there some sort of submission contest?
>Also, final MACRONYMPA box set bro!
Damn right, payday is today so I'm firing off payment for that one. Still waiting on the second box to arrive.
Upcoming Collapsed Hole releases have me very excited:
>Deterge - c40
>Kakerlak - 3x-c60 box
>Mania / Phocomelus - c30
way to digital
the drips sound cheesy
even though i said that it was too digital i'm enjoying the digital manipulations of the voices at 1:50. reminds me of koufar
drum machine sounds are cheesy as FUCK
do you feel as if you succeeded at what you set out to achieve?
Well I like what I did but as you said I know there's a lot to improve. It was my first try to do something like that and I think it's a good start, am I wrong? Also what do you suggest me to listen to get some inspiration?
Heavy fan of both. Sam McInlay is a true artist and I am bound to purchase everything he makes.
Quoting Hazel from 'The Fault In Our Stars', "I would read your [his] grocery lists" so to speak.
I like VOMIR'S philosophy a lot. That was what initially drew me to the music. Very into asocial nothingness. His 'Shit Folk' music as Roro reminds me of material I used to make so that was a love at first listen as well.
You would probably like DEAD BODY COLLECTION. I'm starting to get into his stuff. The aesthetic and 'philosophy' drew me in (he runs PURE NOTHING WORSHIP Zine). I like his asocial and brutal aesthetic.
If you track your obsessiveness, add something of a ritual, add an aesthetic quoting this bro >>61765249 (did you succeed in what you set out to achieve with the walls) then chances are I can probably get into your stuff.
Post pictures of tapes in basement. I hope you live in a suburb cause (as I assume most here) I really like the idea of a recluse making hour upon hours of tortured sounds amongst the 'suburban haute bourgeoisie'.
>Pic related though, I wanted that shirt but I am a medium. I don't like the ill fit of large shirts. Small is too small though (my Posh Isolation is a small and I never wear it).
Agreed. I have a shitty drum machine fetish.
not always but i felt that these drum sounds were cheesy.
you need to do more manipulation of your source sounds. some kind of reverb or really anything. it's all very dry.
the synths are nice, and the song got significantly better and more interesting at the five minute mark.
it's not bad for a first try, you should hear my first attempt at making noise!
in fact, here it is: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6259120/07%20-%20We%20Found%20Nothing.mp3
i made that when i was either 13 or 14, depending on what the actual date of recording was.
i'm not sure exactly what kind of music inspired you or what the sound-aesthetic you were going for was, but to me, the digital nature of the sounds and the high-fidelity recording were not doing you any favors. you also dragged things out a bit too long in the beginning, but i am guilty of doing that myself.
what kind of mood or music inspired you here?
I'm really into Throbbing Gristle this period so probably they inspired me. Also Merzbow but I'm not sure he influenced me that much.
And yeah, now I found an old recorder in my garage so I'll try to do something with it. Thanks for the feedback :)
this is the main advice i'd like to give you though, and this is how i always finish any critique that i give to people:
your music exists to please YOU, and not me, or anyone else on the internet. if you are personally satisfied with it then that is the most important thing.
no prominent noise musician got to where they are by kowtowing to people who lay into them for having "cheesy" sounds or whatever. you do you.
i apologize if i seemed a little harsh, looking back on my original post i realize there wasn't very much warmth. i'm not good with my words when i am typing and not speaking.
if you are a total noise newbie, i will take this moment to recommend a few of my favourite records to you:
macronympha - pittsburgh, pennsylvania
swastikah kommando - 1983
deathkey - emanations of binaural terror
sick llama - born again to die
and one more final thought:
i have heard a lot of people speaking negatively about dudes who just recently get into noise and then start making their own. i think that's great, it's what i did when i was 13 and i believe that you can't really appreciate something fully until you know what it takes to create
i love when new people come around and ask for critique
alright i got around to listening to this clotting album.
the vocals are fantastic, i get this feeling of conviction with them, like he's not posturing. every once in a while the vocals of an album hit me just right and i feel like they're yelling right at me, you know?
i heard samples from true detective, when i recognize movie samples i get a little turned off but overall it was engaging and i didn't get bored even if t he noise got a little (i felt) monotonous at times.
>The theme will be to make a song about the town you live in. You can make this be harsh noise, a noise wall, or just plain old noise, whatever floats your boat. Tracks should be 10 minutes long at most and you are limited to 1 track. Titles should be in a "(Town name) is a Town Where (Something about your town)" format, but if you can come up with something creative and cool, then that's fine as well!
>Email your track to firstname.lastname@example.org. If for any reason it won't let you email your track (file size limits?), just put your song in a zippyshare or mega download and email it. This will be the bandcamp it appears on: https://noisecomps.bandcamp.com/. I'll get the design set up before the comp comes out. Feel free to include your bandcamp in the email if you want, and I'll put it in the description on the final product.
>For times sake, I would say let's make the due date for tracks be January 23rd
>that came out already, the female form
the female form is the 2nd part of it according to the announcement they released regarding the album, with the closed room LP being the first
the lucia tape has no relation to the first two LPs nor the 3rd one, whenever it comes out
>it sounds fucking great, no other genre has such a focus on texture and timbre, deliberate or not
>adherence to concept
>equal emphasis on artwork, titles and presentation as well as audio in order to further an idea appeals to me
>the other approach of just jamming is sick too
>true total artistic freedom
>the shows are amazing
suggestions needed, cant decide on this- I'm going to Tokyo next week and will be available on Sunday night to go to one of these shows
Show#1: Noise show. Facial Mess/scum cd split release show
HUH + NAOKI NOMOTO
Show#2: avant-garde show. makigami koichi birthday show with min tanaka.
Cant decide between the two. The Facialmess/Scum show looks awesome but the Koichi/Min tanaka show looks legendary.
I have a scary feeling I am going to buy this. Goodbye $2100.
This is why we work two jobs.
Yo Xern0n what 4chan app do you use and do you like it?
I haven't had the app on my phone in a while but want to make sure this thread is healthy when I go to job #2 this evening.
I'm not rich or anything. I just budget well, work a lot, and have minimal expenses. Like bare minimum lol. Reading an interview with Zbigniew Karkowski (sort of noise related actually) really inspired me to budget well, focus on music, learn computer coding. He made more money than me but he paid rent in Tokoyo so it's all relative.
If I win this Ebay auction for an Korg ARP Odyssey I won't get the make noise system. A much different synth that nobody has any business paying over $600 for ever. The make noise would actually be useful in multiple capacities as opposed to the KORG ARP which I would exclusively use for my 'shit punk drum machine rape' projects.
I got paid too today! Those collapsed hole seem essential, yet I can't seem to find any info on them.
Only software. Never hardware. I just won the KORG ARP while I was typing ($580) so no Make Noise system for me this year.
For those that don't know $580 can be the price of like one module.
I should add I am educated in the modules in that system. But no hands on experience. I've watched too many MakeNoise Tutorials.
>yet I can't seem to find any info on them
i believe you have to contact james cooke directly as he has abandoned the collapsed hole site years ago(he still has contact info up on it at least)
talking about cooke, has anyone here procured fusty cunt's edition of straddle fortress? it's beautiful stuff
the kings of packaging in 21st century noise
What does /noise/ think of Yeh?
>I got paid too today! Those collapsed hole seem essential, yet I can't seem to find any info on them.
Drop him a line directly (collapsedhole@yahoo) for stocklist and to be added to mailing list - well worth it; he should have a few copies left of the Ahlzagailzehguh / Developer split which is very necessary
Just remembered mine's still here at work for some reason. Gonna bring it home tonight and have a listen
I'm an iPhone user & just use a web browser, mane. Never bothered to check if theres an app, assuming you use iOS.
Thank you for sharing, i'm gunna look into it when i get home.
among the most significant US noise artists to rise to prominence during the 2000s
i'm envious as hell, man
i was seriously considering buying a copy from some guy in russia that's selling it but ended up deciding against it in the end(turned out to be a good decision; i wouldn't have been able to afford the new hospital box if i got it)
i do hope ahlzagailzehguh eventually makes another proper album in the vein of memory & hearing or bypassing time passing though, he's been putting out nothing but shorter tapes for years now
>the noise tag on bandcamp is filled with mislabeled stuff, memes and vaporwave.
i fucking hate when people think they're being so cute and quirky xD when they label their dream pop as "noise." give me a fucking break
I'm asking again since I didn't got any responses.
Did anyone here had any trouble buying things from Rotorelief?
It has been six days since I bought from them and I still haven't received any email apart from the paypal receit.
I haven't but have you checked noiseguide? If you still can't find any info I'd wait a few more days then send a follow up email. These kinds of small labels are notoriously slow.
this is gonna sound like im a troll but there has to be a sort of sexual element to noise, how visceral and compromising it is. does anyone else enjoy masturbating to the rita's bodies bear traces of carnal violence? it gives me cold chills, its so powerful and exhilarating to sit down and listen to
bumping with whats needed:
if you want to know how to make noise these links should be great guide to getting the right idea about noise.
noise isnt your goddamn expensive synth module set up or 12 piggy backed pedals it's the ideology behind it that's important.
>or their song "Cut Hand Has The Solution."
Literary in my top ten songs of all time. IFucking lobe anything with spoken word over minimal techno and those lines
And we'll let them eat fat till they're full
And will let them drink blood till they're drunk
As I tell you:
While I tell you:
You're doing the right thing!!!!
Fucking intense as shit m8
>Literary in my top ten songs of all time. IFucking lobe anything with spoken word over minimal techno and those lines
Have you ever listened to Current 93's "I Have A Special Plan For This World"? It's really beautiful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxZpEFJhO6k
>noise isnt your goddamn expensive synth module set up or 12 piggy backed pedals
Yeah but...sometimes it is....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1xdXwuT4bU
Nah Jk, Chris the ideas behind this are always strongest.
Just don't put a fuckin bag over your head and say it means nothing. Flail your arms about a bunch in a way that communicates your noisey feelings!
He took 20 years to develope the ideas he even had to make the set up. My problem is when your set up is mostly modular or mostly pedal it just kinda falls flat on the ideas of audio decay that I guess are supposed to be in noise.(big time opinion btw)
Wow I fucked that post.
But yeah, most of the stuff on Signora Ward records has a similar erotic aesthetic which really does it for me
Just do'in bits brother. I 100% agree with you. I listen to a lot of other music besides noise but a common theme is the assumption gear is going to do all the work for you.
Steve Via is just a good guitarist guys (I like Steve Via, fucking crucify me) having a $4,000 Jem will not make you Steve Via.
Although a Jem would be nice to have.
Short answer 'Yes'. Long answer, 'Yes and big time'
Speaking of gear, THE RITA barely has any. His sounds come from militant attention to detail and good sound sources (for what he tries to achieve in the wall, not 'good' as in the value of 'quality')
i've gone full computers for the time being transposed onto tape. heavily interested in using time/pitch shifted sample work to string ideas together rather than just random junk sounds. my straight ahead noise stuff is somewhere in between sick llama and msbr (yet again big time opinion maybe taking liberties)
my opinion on noise is that i can find a free alternative to just about anything i've ever seen an expensive piece of equipment do if i took the effort to look, i have a few nice things from over the years collecting but very minimal live set up.
the rita does great with just a wheel barrel of bricks or a skate ramp so he has no need for much gear wise else which is a great thing!
Cheap homemade options are where it's at for noise. As said I listen to other music so I've been wanting that Korg reissue of the ARP as soon as I heard they were making one. Ebay, Craigslist, flea markets, and thrift stores are your friends for noise or...anything really.
A lot of the tape machines Sick Llama use, you can find for like <$10 at thrift stores or garage sales. ATRAX MORGUE used cheap (at the time, the synth Marco used now goes for a lot of money circa analogue fetish) gear as well. Tapes decks, tape decks, tape decks. Sound record, sound recorder, sound recorder.
I like metal scraping against things and the sounds of flesh ripping so just having a basic portable recorder is good. I have a tascam I bought with an Amazon gift card that collects dust. I plan to connect a contact mic into it and...do stuff?
Anyway, 100% agree with you. I don't know what I'm going on about at this point.
Sam is obsessive so I would image a variety of ways, with a variety of nylons. Sorry I don't have a better answer.
I'm going full blown autism on the CRUMER. Pic related.
No worries, I reckon I have a few idea as to how he might.
Bumping with more sweet nylon and heels
I still haven't listened to my POWER MONSTER/THE RITA collab.
She is super pretty though. That, or it's a good picture....it's irrelevant I suppose.
I don't like the idea of judging women solely on their looks, but I'm a straight dude and if a girl is attractive then I can't help but notice. If the music is good her being hot is a bonus, I guess. It does change how I perceive the music though (usually for the better.)
That is the first time I think I associated a shirt with being 'sinister'
I can play this game! I raise you one circular saw!
I own an LP of his. I think it's great. Too bad it's not even remotely noisey! It's like post-punk vocals meets synth pop. The LP has an awesome cover of Stevie Nicks 'Rooms of Fire'. A+ album. I find it funny my first exposure of him had nothing to do with noise.
woah that shipped fast
i'll rip this tomorrow night if anyone is interested
Well sometimes you just have to give things time, you know ? Forcing creativity never really works, at least for me. Maybe you could try changing your set-up, or even the kind of gear you use. I've been fiddling a lot with accoustic noise at the moment (strings, cymbals, motors etc), before that it was tape manipulation, and even before mostly pedal stuff. Now I mix the whole.
Do you have a link for your music ?
that's fucking awesome, how did it go? i heard sam is the nicest guy
take a break if you feel drained though. i find sometimes that forcing yourself to perform just makes it shitty. though there is some kind of desperation that translates by putting yourself in that situation, which can end up cool
i'd love to hear it full stop haha, no tape deck at my friend's place unfortunately
Oh, it was great. Really blew my mind considering I haven't been performing for THAT long. I just got a message from my buddy via Facebook asking me if I wanted to play with the fucking Rita. Almost turned it down just out of fear just because I knew everyone in town would be there, haha.
Yeah I do. Sometimes I'm reluctant with posting, sometimes I think "what the hell" and post it anyway.
Actually I've met one of the greatest guy/noise musician I know on a bandcamp thread.
If you are on soundcloud, look up "Zalhietzli" if you want to get in touch.
Give it a listen if you want. A more odd track of mine but ehh. Feedback always appreciated.
That's why I listened to this album at first, it turned out to be pretty solid hnw
Oh yeah I still browse this place quite often. I'm just reluctant of spamming my stuff each thread, especially if I don't have new material.
I have posted my caveman instruments recently though. Pic is a bit outdated as I have added a contact mic and jack input to most.
I'd rec you Shitnoise Bastards / Joli - Welcome to the Future split. Why? One side is batshit noisecore, good enough for the chase. Second side is a wall to drown out your sorrow when she'll finally caught you.
Does anyone else think BRATH would be an awesome soundtrack to this?
This is the stuff I like to talk about.
Where do you live?
I am very interested
>noise, dark ambient
got invited to go on tour with crowhurst and wreckage in 2 months that i'm really hyped for that
Also anyone in here know if the ms 2000 is any good?
I should have been there for this!
You and me both brother. You and me both.
It's also just as nauseating and anxiety ridden. coupled with bleak outlook and depression once finished.
Look into Crown of Cerberus, Proud/Father, Chemiefaserwerk, Jérôme Noetinger, SEC_ or (self-insert, sorry) Zalhietzli.
Pedestrian Deposit are awesome. Got their new tape. I really enjoy how careful and delicate their music sounds.
What're yall listening to?
Im revisiting this classic for the first time in a while.
M.S.B.R - Collapseland
looking it up on discogs, the original package was made with debris from the kobe earthquake
Asked last thread as well so sorry if this is the exact same crowd
Know any good Korean acts? Doesn't have to be strictly noise, outsider/avant/experimental/extreme in general would be appreciated. Going to be studying in Seoul next year and would like a head start on finding cool shows to go to and people to meet
I don't have an answer for ook, sorry
>sorry if this is the exact same crowd
How many of us are in every thread? I am but I assume there's at least some people that only pop in occasionally.
Said I'd rip this one or two threads ago.
Puritan Sword - Discography 
This >>61790090 was supposed to be for you.
What is this?
Some anon posted asking about obscure releases last thread, I said this was my first exposure to harsh noise. Got the cdr as a bonus with some other order a few years back
There's some related projects listed on discogs of you're interested
Ah, damn I'm sorry dude, I thought you meant burgerland dollars. I've been procrastinating on calculating shipping prices for international orders, I will put that at the top of my logistics to-do list.
Yessir, put the mic right up next to it, set an hour cycle and ran it through an effect chain. It's not so much real low-low ends, lots of low mids more like. It still manages to fascinate me.
