Fire up your narghile (hookah, shisha) and settle back for some compelling arabic melodies and rhythms, performed by Kaazim Zareb, by profession a bellydance accompanist, who in this creative departure brings a jazzy improvisational flavor to mellow arabic art music. These tracks were produced and/or remixed by Thomas Park of Mystified and C.P. McDill of Webbed Hand Records. These tracks blend elements of traditional Middle Eastern musical idioms with contemporary electronica mixing style. 01...

"To Ancient Noise" is a compilation of manipulated environmental sounds. Whether field recordings, found sounds, radio snippets, or other odd recorded artifacts of audio, these elements are worked by sound artists in interesting and often startling ways. In some cases the sounds may not be processed much at all, but are rather selected for their rhythmic virtues. In other cases, sounds have been layered and heavily effected into lush and alien soundscapes, dark and mysterious. With...

Somewhere in the spectrum between Musique Concrete and Phonography, is a vast gray area that is disowned and disputed by either side. This compilation treats this no-man's land as its playground. Field recordings they are, with some processing, but not just walls of rhythmic noise. Sounds of nature, sounds of the city, using the non-instrumental rhythms and melodies of the source recording as the focal points, coaxing the music and beauty out of unplanned, un-orchestrated events.

A project which began as a spinoff of Saluki Regicide, but which took on a personality of its own as a pattern began to emerge. This is a peculiar sound art of a very diverse nature, but unified by the presence of Shortwave signals. These bizarre tracks may bend your mind, if you are in a susceptible state. An eclectic CD alternating between abstract and rhythmic, this body of work is dedicated to those who get the warm-n-fuzzies from hunching over shortwave radios, grooving on static and...

Purr is a 76 minute ambient track intended to be played at low volume as background ambience, preferably as you go to sleep. It generates a warm and cozy feeling, like having a cat purring next to your head. With a high fidelity stereo system possessing good bass response, some of the infrasonic qualities will come through, thus adding to the trancey and hypnotic effect of the work. It is my feeling, based on some study of infrasound, that what one hears as a cat's purr is only part of the...

The Light Will Fill the Darkness and Obliterate It is a poetic and richly textured work by Canadian sound artist K.M. Krebs. These tracks are blended together into a shifting exploration as evocative and powerful as the titles they bear. I find this to be excellent headphone music, and with eyes closed I am easily abducted into very strange realms. K.M. Krebs has become a well-known and respected artist in the netlabel scene. As K.M.

The clever and versatile digital artistry of RCS gets shown to best effect in this album. Catchy and accessible sampletronica, it ranges from dark to whimsical to bizarre. From the giant-robot bellydance sound of "Macedoine" to the incorrect plunderphonics of "Nothing In My Dream" to the mellow warmth of "Cozy," these recordings exemplify the humanity and playfulness of Rolling Calf Sinfonette. Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release. Please...

An early document has surfaced which exposes some of the roots of the Webbed Hand sound of C.P. McDill. An untitled tape made in December of 1993, then set aside, which somehow survived many moves and purges of belongings. Out of numerous recordings I made in the late 80s - early 90s, this is the only one that wasn't lost. Thanks to the recent acquisition of a mixer similar to the one the tape was recorded on, I was able to finally transfer the tape to digital and give it a proper mixdown and...

Following on the success of Mystified's "Bone Drones" series comes a new collection of drone works, this time drawing its sounds entirely from a wooden overtone flute. "In August of 2011, Thomas of mystified purchased an overtone flute from artist Steve Brand. The flute, when played, hits a single note on various octaves. It produces a nice, breathy tone. Thomas immediately became interested in using sounds from the flute to create acoustic drones. Each of the 5 pieces in...

From the artist: "For this concept album, the idea was to make new songwriting. All structures were influenced by rock and also by experimental techno and prepared improvisation (which i still don't really enjoy most of the time though). There's choruses, verses, bridges, introductions and endings. They don't appear in the order, all the times, but they are there. The vocals and the lyrics came after. All lyrics were inspired by the instrumental music. It's marvelous to treat human voice...

Songs for Psychos, part one initiates spoonPhase's artistic exploration of a shattered mind. With equal parts darkness and whimsy, these compositions meander through the corridors of the mind with a music that at times seems like lullabyes or serenades, and at other times like mockery and deconstruction. This is great headphone music, given the artist's talent for creating a sense of spatial arrangement within the music, but a mischeivous soul might also be tempted to play this in public...

"Bone Drones 2: Prehistory" is an essay in brass on the times when giants walked the earth. The main source for this release was a single, very high-pitched tone played on Mystified's trombone. This sound was recorded and processed into different sounds, with varying qualities. The resulting sounds were layered and mastered. Mystified dedicates these...

Kittenhead is the latest long-form (CD-length) production by Djinnestan, departing significantly from the Rain series and Purr. In many ways, it defies easy categorization. It is very ambient, but contains rhythms. It is dark, yet at the same time whimsical. It includes acoustic instruments and vocals, but they have been processed virtually beyond recognition. Nonetheless it is a subtle and pleasant listen. Djinnestan is an ambient recording project of C.P. McDill and Aria Nadii. The audio...

Haunted textures of sound are served forth in classic Djinnestan style in this unexpected EP release. Do ghosts relive their dying moments? Do they have unfinished business, or messages for the living? Without explaining the concept of this album, I shall leave you to infer what you can from the track titles and a close listening to these haunted soundscapes. Djinnestan's art consists of heavily processed acoustic, electronic, and sampled sounds, woven into rich sonic textures. Typically these...

The Hush is an extended voyage, perhaps experienced from within the engine room of an intergalactic vessel. A throbbing, soporific bass is punctuated by echoing metallic sounds, and the auditory space is sometimes graced by mellow but alien melodies and harmonic drones. Other mysterious sounds make periodic visits, and the whole effect is a pleasant mix of slowly cycling highs and lows. This album was Produced by Thomas Park, and includes a sample by c. reider (www.vuzhmusic.com). If you like...
