Drawing a line between the pioneer La Monte Young and the thriving contemporary drone/dark ambient scene, 'That Which Remains Is Silence' EP provides with an exploratory process of systematization of its genre. Therefore, it is not just a static and typical drone work but an advancement. The outcome leave us in awe. One can...

Ten Thirty is a duo project born in 2008 and located in France. Inspired by 20th-century classical composers and by ritual chants, Ten Thirty improvise during live sessions dreamlike soundscapes with industrial sounds, field recordings, samples and synthesizers. Most of these paradoxical and enigmatic ballades are regarded as an "acoustic-mental cinema". ET023 An Etched Traumas release 2012

Etched Traumas is honored to release Paco Rossique's work titled 'Drawing Widows In Black And White'. Rossique introduces us into a world of primordial continua, fragments of concrete music and ambient soundscapes. He structures his work building a rich world of field recordings, live and pre-recorded sounds. Being a highly exploratory and bold work, there is a constant flow of primal energy which leads to the sublime ambient and evolving soundscape of last track and ends with a surprise. ...

Χυμός Άγιος - may be translated either "Holy Juice" or "Holy Substance", refering in the first interpretation to Orange Juice with LSD of Merry Pranksters, but more likely to the sacral beverage of Proto-Indo-Europeans (sanscr. सोम, avest. haoma, Proto-Indo-Iranian *sauma-).

Gomon is the product of cold city sounds, which is mixed with guitar riffs and chthonic myths. The music of this project is a search for the atmosphere in the world of dreams for a breath of fresh air. The first album Kenoma comes from the faceless emptiness of human nature. We praise the biological body, its voice, its movements, which is decorated by plastic and metal. We bathe in post-rock among the stars, listen to the folk-echoes of our ancestors and descend into the depths of the...

Etched Traumas is more than happy to release Katajamäki's work titled 'Sininen Projekti' . It would be very easy for anyone to expect that this Finnish sonic work is an hommage to icy soundscapes and arctic habitats. Contrary to the stereotype, Katajamäki's sound is a solid work of unusual warmth and serenity with its ethereal and occasional dusky pads. The use of minimal broad electronic and natural elements in 'Sininen Projekti' 'teleports' listeners as if they were 434 light-years from...

Something like a deafening noise arose from inside their deepness and leave them out of breath. A primal fire burned out all their shelters. They were by themselves those who got inspired to descend up to the boundaries of their animality, without knowing it. And so on the grey angels trapped inside the oblivion woke up, one by one. Options were simple, to fall even deeper or to take flight with them to become white again. released February 16, 2015  Fernando Laub (aka flaub) is a composer and...

The music on ‘The Garden’ was created with the Super 8 films ( youtu.be/IdHePjYqu-A ) by independent movie director Derek Jarman (1942-1994) in mind. These films show Jarman at his most visually courageous and creative, using prisms, filters, and superimposition to produce rich color and artistically bold compositions. The transient images, isolated like paintings, are the essence of Derek Jarman and his visual vocabulary.  'The Garden': tribute to a great artist. released February 21,...

The sophomore effort by a duo of old friends is a collaboration as much as it is a split release. It documents a radical departure from the sounds and approaches hitherto associated with Djozr and Lezet, and ventures into dangerously new terrains for both artists. But even despite this, the split feels more like a unified body of work than a mere collection of new songs.  djozr (d͡ʒoʊ.zɹ) is an ambient drone glitch project by Glenn Bryce.  Lezet is an experimental music project from...
