INNERCITY / RAISING HOLY SPARKS split (C50): on last spring, i was very glad to see Innercity and Dave Colohan perform at my house in the country...that was a mystical experience, and we cheated a lot about lost pandas and red strings in front of a good pizza!
Innercity is the synth-based project of Hans Dens, and here is joined by Bart De Paepe (sloow tapes) on guitar: side A is a collage of quasi-harsh shoutings, quickly developing in their quieter and softly smouldering drone counterparts...
Raising Holy Sparks is Dave Colohan's solo: the guy is active since decades in the Dublin underground scene, and he's playing also as Agitated Radio Pilot and as a member of the glorious United Bible Studies; side B is 20-min + of strings, shruti box and mellotron brew of melancholic and almost religious music...No word can describe the harmonious density of this stuff , it's like gazing a neverending sunset from the top of a sylvan pasture...
55 copies, artwork by Virginia Genta (troglosound/jooklo duo) and includes an insert.

DONA FERENTES / DAVIDE TIDONI / ANAKOR - live Oct-30th-2014 @ Tunnel- RN (C-15): lately this autumn, we went to an abandoned highway tunnel near Rimini, to perform live with an home-made PA system and battery-fueled pedals and electronics in front of a small and astonished crowd...
This tape is nothing more than a relic of that gig, some extracts of the sounds that were released there, intermingled with the cold and the nastiness of that incredible night...Soon you will know about something similar to happen in the same place for sure! Edition of 15 copies, black painted tapes...

ANAKOR / DONA FERENTES / DAVIDE TIDONI - split (C20): this is a weird display of musical anarchism...Anakor is Bagli Damiano' s solo, and his set is comprised of venomous lo-fi pitched frequencies and hallucinatory electronics; Davide Tidoni 's work focuses on spatialization of concrete sounds and studies on field recordings capture: here you find some funny fields he had taken a ton of years ago (1999) while on vacation with friends...and ultimately, a Dona Ferentes adventure: Davide sent to me some field recs he took while we were living together in the same house, and i worked on them, feeling hate and love about human condition... Edition of 21 copies, includes an errata corrige, some tapes are full orange, others are transparent with orange stickers...
