Thu. 20.12.12 - Dronology 0.1 - Ghent



FREE ! ambient/drones/experimental/noise

Live Performances by

Cédric Stevens

Cédric Stevens’ career began in 93 as a DJ and techno producer under the pseudonym Acid Kirk.
He quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in the Belgian underground,
producing over a dozen 12’’ and EPs.
In 97, driven by his growing interest in experimental music, he launched his side project:
“The Syncopated Elevators Legacy” (S.E.L.). The project served as a vehicle for Cédric
to explore a more ambitious sound, based around experimentation rather than repetitive beats.
Across the next decade, several EPs and mini LPs were released on different labels,
each one with its very own specific approach. From experiments in electric currents
and serpent patching (Siamese Level EP) to his own take on ‘musique concrete’
(Still Between the Battle & the Sheet EP) S.E.L.’s sound never ceased to investigate
the most improbable sound sources as compositional tools.
Just fresh of re-releasing an acclaimed anthology of his past work
with remixes from Fennesz, My Cat Is An Alien, Burning Star Core and more,
Cédric is now focussing his energies on the full potential and dynamic harmonies between
drone, noise and pastoral ambient.




80000 and The Lincolnshire Poacher

Both born in the lowlands albeit on opposite sides of the North Sea (in East Flanders & Lincolnshire).
This is an Anglo-Belgian alliance – the sounds of shared sensibilities and different experiences coming together.

Ancient Sickness

Ancient Delay & Dj SickSickSick’s joint project. Starting from improvisation with the three generations of Buddha-machines,
then slowly adding different layers of carefully chosen frequencies to the mix.
They create a powerful psychedelic collage of dark, ambient soundscapes.


Creat-ur-somnia

Create ur Somnia is a project of Ruben Void. fieldrecordings,
deep drones and eerie didgeridoo sounds speaking tales of the archetypes expressed in nature and in dream.

Noctri

The birdless feather shrieks its lament in despair.
The wild beast gnaws on the bones of humanity.
In the beak of the abyss the razor cuts the tongue.
And feather and beast and razor are Noctri.
(Sonic poetry)

7 Inch Pinch: Thaï Echoes -- Discrepant





Discrepant is proud to present a beautifull hybrid themed mix made of rare 7'' from the Siam kingdom better known now as Thailand.
Lowdjo, Belgium DJ and digger extraordinaire as well as the principal instigator and main contributor of our popular 7'' Pinch series, treats us with a special global echoes Thai 7'' only extravaganza. For those of you who don't follow this closely that means a mix not only made entirely of 7'' but also a showcase of the rarest, weirdest and most fascinanting tunes the country has to offer. A two-in-one sort of thing...we invite you to get lost with us on this backwater journey through the rich musical heritage of the land of smiles!
...and if you dig this sort of thing, and we know you do, you should continue the journey by supporting an artist that actually travels to physically dig and uncover these tunes as opposed to just 'googling' away from his comfortable computer desk...it takes not only sweat, commitment and passion to pull these mixes off but also an unfortunate financial pit hole making it hard to continue...To do help it continue, and make these things possible you can show your support by checking out another exclusive mix by Lowdjo, this time pressed to a limited edition K7 of Thai goodness!

A continuation of the Global Echoes concept, this two hour mixtape travels through funk rarities, demented spaghetti western covers to traditional folk hits and dusty, crackling psychedelic surf ballads. Mostly constructed from a couple of visits to the now infamous Paradise Bangkok record shop, this K7 serves as another reminder of how rich and powerfull non-western music (at least in spirit) can be.

Screeners Festival 11-12-13th of April - Recyclart


Brussels' multimedia-collective OST (Oiseaux Sans Tête) invites you to 3 days of intense interaction around film, video, photography and music. In the form of workshops, screenings, concerts & dj-sets.

"The word screener refers to an advance screening of a film sent to critics, awards voters, video stores, and other film industry professionals. Often, each individual screener is sent out with distinct markings (such as a digital watermark), which allow copies of a screener to be tracked to their source. It is also used for the pirate copies of a film recorded directly from the screen of the cinemas with digital cameras and distributed afterwards through non official channels.
"

In collaboration with Todojunto
