All tracks by Heathertoes

Hubert Heathertoes – interdisciplinary artist revolving around many different media. His work although trying to capture different areas of interest focuses on the experiences of transcendental and spiritual nature according to the motto about ever happening transformation in terms of molecular processes, reincarnation, oneironautical dream experience, vast terrain of absurdity that surrounds us. As a linguist he approaches music and other media with grammatical dexterity of incomprehensive surprises and disastrous dychotomy between autistic alienation and the idiom of overexpresiveness.

Since 25th of August he manages Astipalea Records
www.astipalearecords.bandcamp.com 
and a number of musical projects
Heathertoes – field recorded noise/drone compositions, the horrors of
sonorism and snobishness
djfeaturing – electroacusmatic tape music and turntablism
kitty_kit – ethnic chivalry of improvised bubble gum comic
Das Gerste – trippy soviet trip hop
Igloodoom -with Bartek Kalinka from www.xvp.pl – aural domains, sizzling
terrains of noise and beyond
Lumber – with Chefkirk www.controlvalve.net – butter induced vegan dragon
made of noise/improv and bucolic absurdity
He writes poetry and prose as well as fairy tales and limerics for
children.
Works with Roch Forowicz – a video art professor – so far – two soundtracks
for short video art movies – http://www.environment.pl/
Active in the field of sound workshops and analogue photography.
His project – Miejsca Poboczne (Outer places) www.mpoboczne.blogspot.com
was a national success in 2010.

CONTROL VALVE #063 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!
www.controlvalve.net
ARTIST: Scy1e
ALBUM: (2 untitled for CTRL valve)

 

 

 

 

 

BIO/STATEMENT:
These two long pieces are meant to be experienced linearly, at least within the context of each individual piece, not necessarily as the duo in one sitting.
They are each an excercise in psuedo-static form, structured such that neither exhibits change or explicit movements in a traditionally musical sense,
but follow an underlying set of unheard patterns that dictate behaviors which may be experienced in the close-listened, long term immersion in either work.

The concept/length of these are also a nod to Roger And Heather, who have demonstrated attentive listening beyond the call of duty, as it were,
and I hope they will find much to indulge in within these pieces.

Scy1e (‘Sighwonee”) is a new direction for Raub Roy, also known as Horaflora.

Electronic in nature, the character of Scy1e is more supple, more simpatico, than that of Horaflora.
This music deals in interrelated cycles, or Relabi; "the self-erasing pulse".  
Field recordings mingle with limping, stately, rhythms, together forming a rich community of sound.

Raub has performed electroacoustic noise music as horaflora since
He, with partner Dianne Lynn, founded Weird Ear Records, a record label reveling in disparate forms of experimental music.
Their slogan, “The Weird Ear, The Better,” serves as a guideline to the curatorial themes across all of these projects.
Raub is from Western Mass. but has lived in the Bay Area since 2007.

-ctrl.vlv.#061_-_Eucci_-_Mimeotin.

CONTROL VALVE #061 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!
www.controlvalve.net

ARTIST: Eucci
ALBUM: Mimeotin
TRACKLIST: sleep vol 41 soco edith set beverledeprogramangio lower edith (birds of alaska) mimeotin livewaiting0fn1

BIO/STATEMENT:

Data loss, memory loss, story transfer, body transfer, bottom-up illusion aggrandizement, the drifting loss of longing, a multipass encoded syllabus, and the amped up anxiety of live waiting. Another round of body electric study recorded with a wide range of electric contact instruments, with drunks and teachers or critical isolation as appropriate.

Mimeotin.

Really.

The first releases of what would become Eucci dealt a lot with me trying to understand my own mind. In cut up tape collages of field recordings and radio signals, I found a soundtrack that worked for the mess of electrical signals that made up me. "Mimeotin", starting off with a new entry in the 'sleep' series started in 1994, is a new exploration of that concept some 22 years of life and decay later.

By Jeffrey Paul Shell for Eucci, January 2015 - May 2016

Finest electroacoustic tape collage, memory, and longing, since 1994

-ctrl_vlv_058_-_Martin Rach_-_Artebellum-
CONTROL VALVE #058 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.controlvalve.net/

artist: Martin Rach
title: “Artebellum”

Bio/statement: “This work consists of recording bells used to keep the deer away from Norwegian huts (autumn leaves/spring breaks) and a session of tambourine, Chinese balls and a drum set cowbell (winter solstice). With h4n Zoom recorder.
The title is a play on concepts of 'art of war', the historic period of 'antebellum' and word misplacement/mistranslation - where 'arte' changes 'ante', assimilating the meaning of ante - before; while 'bellum' (war) is taken to mean 'bells'. So you can get 'art of bells' or 'art before war' or even 'art of warring bells'.
