    NovaGiger - Seres




    Thousands of years old and covering huge stretches of inhospitable and unforgiving terrain, this journey from west to east is captured in musical form by Novagiger. Temples, grotto's, caves, bazaar's, still lakes, oases, gardens, tombs, vast deserts, huge cities, the music here moves through these places and marvels at the cultures, the landscapes and the vast empty distances involved.

    Over seven hundred years ago Marco Polo described some of the difficulties of travelling along this ancient route, its otherworldly nature and the enigmatic sounds that may be heard by travellers:

  • Marcel Rocha - Ancient Computer Music

    24 Mar 2012, 02:44 by obscurefisher



    ACM” is the translation into sounds of composer Marcel Rocha’sinterpretation of the spiritual world of the people who live in deep connection with nature. With this work, Marcel tries to capture some rhythms that have been ‘danced to’ by the people of the earth since the beginning of time and glues them together through the use of sound manipulation and original music performances.These compositions were created by using ethnic and nature sounds, blending them with electric guitar effects and electronic noises.Marcel likes to think of “ACM” as an appreciation of the non-local Universal Mind.

    Tracklist
    01 Coal I 3:44
    02 Alien Bugs in Argelia 6:18
    03 Coal II 2:50
    04 Story of a Birth 9:39
    05 Siamgda – Dancing Berimbau 4:08

    Marcel Rocha: composition, guitars and computer

    Paulo Freire: viola on "Coal I"

    The track "Dancing Berimbau" is a special contribution by Siamgda using source material by Marcel Rocha - sounds like Asia, Europe and South America joining together for a universal dancing celebration.

  • Mehata Sentimental Legend - Noum Zeccyou

    29 Oct 2011, 10:57 by obscurefisher




    Mehatas music explores the subconscious boundaries between light and shadow, vision and hearing, death and rebirth. In a radical fusion of old Japanese ritual music and futuristic psychedelic noise, Mehatas ethereal soundscapes express the transitory states of mind experienced in the fleeting moments when leaving reality and entering a dream, opening the doors to a new era of music from Japan. In his album Noum Zeccyou, the super-future is thus united with the super-past.

    Tracklist:
    01 Noum Hisyou Jyaodori
    02 Noum Hinowa Hagoromo
    03 Noum Showa Kourin
    04 Noum Rinsetsu Shidare
    05 Noum Rinsetsu Izumo
    06 Theme of Mehata Sentimental Legend
    07 Noum Zeccyou
    08 Noum Inei Ato
    09 Noum Inei Tenshow
    10 Noum Hayou Yuuhi

    This has been an exciting first year with some really great releases.
    Thanks to all who supported us!

    We would like to celebrate this first anniversary with a special free download for all our fans - The First Anniversary mix: we have woven a track from each release that came out this year into to a dark, meditative, ritual, noisy soundscape.

    We take off with Mikans delightful Spacefalls.Subterrestrial's meditative High Sierra Breeze and Sunset Beach arise together at around (3:53).They are joined by Seetyca's ethereal Swamp Temple Sun (6.06), together melting their way throughout the first part of Mikans mesmerizing The Way Back (6:52).Siamgda's ethnic Tribal Gathering takes over at (12:56), briefly visited by Siamgda feat. Morty's ritual Golden Prayer at (13:47), just before Neti Neti's harder-edged Circumdance (17:52) climbs its way through the Gathering up to the climax joined there by Siamgda's pulsating Mind Rotation at (18:15).
