A great record from Chicago artist Rob Patterson which composes here the soundtrack from an (hopefully) upcoming book. Here, he manipulates a vast array of instruments, from guitars to oboe, field recordings to singing bowls, and creates an haunting soundscape. What else to say ? According to Rob, "Musical influences in this project include Eluvium, Fjordne, Popol Vuh, Xela, and Steven R. Smith. I would place the genre somewhere around ambient, experimental and noise". So, enjoy it here, and if all works out, there will be some vinyl pressings in the future. Anyways, thanks a lot to Infinite Meniscus, and congrats on being the first artist on NNN Presents...
As you may have noticed if you're a regular here, I like this blog to be an experimental platform and not only a collection of links. Some experiments proved valid (like the merging of pure noise and other forms or the FB page), some went down (like the forum). The other day, as i was deleting the shoutbox which was heavily spammed during my forced absence, i thought it was a shame to lose the many links you posted on your own creations. So from there came the idea of NNN Present, a new series of posts about... you ! If you're a musician, working in the genres featured on the blog (noise, drone, experimental, idm, field recordings, found sounds, collage, ambient...), just send me a link to your (unreleased) album or EP with a short presentation of the project - where you came from, what you want to express... - i'll listen to everything, i promise, and will post here the best ones under the collective name of New Noise Net Presents. Like a netlabel without the label if you want. So, i'm waiting for your input at chnnlzr [at] gmail.com .
PS : For the time being, please don't send me single tracks, unless there long enough to be a release on their own. I'll probably make a call for shorter tracks to be released as a compilation in the near future.
PPS : If you also have records released and want to share them here, it's ok of course, i'll be glad to add them to the bulk of NNN. Just send me a link to it, with the title, the year and the label name (and a picture if possible), and voilà.
