New on ADX Records: 'Deconstruction'

'Deconstruction’ is 95% based on deconstructed sounds. A method also known as Granular Synthesis. For example, the lower rhythmic sounds in Deconstruction #2 are created from elephant sounds. I've used these deconstructed noises to create 3 new soundscapes. Sometimes harmonious, sometimes raw. Sound designer Theo Calis has – besides mastering – contributed a lot of deconstructed sounds.

Listen, buy & download Deconstruction HERE on ADX Records.

A special Bandcamp release of Deconstruction can be found HERE.
The profits from this ‘Deconstruction’ bandcamp edition will go to the World Land Trust in their entirety.

World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity, which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre. Since its foundation in 1989, WLT has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves, and give permanent protection to habitats and wildlife.

Deconstructing the sounds of the world is better than deconstructing the world itself. :)

New on Petroglyph Music: 'Movement'

The Wire Tapper 36

All copies of the November 2014 issue of The Wire will come complete with an exclusive free CD attached to the cover, The Wire Tapper 36, the latest volume in the acclaimed series of new music compilations.
As with previous volumes this CD is packaged in a heavy duty card sleeve designed by The Wire's art director Ben Weaver, and contains a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks from across the spectrum of the kind of underground/outsider musics covered in The Wire. One of these tracks is mine: 'The Endless Light'. For some reason the Almighty Wire Editor mutilated the accompanying text. Well, here is the 'uncensored' version. :)
Martin Hoogeboom
“The Endless Light”
Previously unreleased The bright and powerful imagery of abstract expressionist paintings inspired Dutch soundscape-composer Martin Hoogeboom to create The Endless Light. According to painter Mark Rothko many abstract expressionist painters aspire the same: “Many of those who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where we can root and grow. We must all hope we find them.” A good starting point for creating The Endless Light. Mastered by Theo Calis. Martin Hoogeboom 2014 soundworks have been published on such labels as Etched Traumas, Petroglyph Music, ADX Records & Charlotte Sometimes.

SOS FLOAT THAT BOAT

This project is an instant collaboration between Dutch artists of the experimental music scene, to support Motorship Stubnitz. This is an 80 meters long ex East German fishing vessel transformed in 1992 into a moving platform for cultural research and exchange. The last twenty years have seen several thousand artists on board , from diverse cultural disciplines including performance, theater, dance , spoken word, music and parties. On Sep 1st the MS STUBNITZ was docked for class renewal in the Norderwerft - a costly affair, which the non-profit association cannot manage alone. All money collected by this album will go directly to MS Stubnitz.

Deadline of the crowdfunding project will be 10th of october. 
SO DON'T WAIT AND BUY THIS UNIQUE RELEASE HERE!
