The Aperion Project – All Music is Improvised

The Aperion Project hail from Chicago. Their musical output ranges from live improvised music to electro-acoustic studio projects. This download is an example of their more freely played music. In a few weeks time their album “Gods, Demigods & Demons“, which showcases a more structured mixture of jazz and electronics, will be available from all major download stores.

New brunk album

New free download, available now:

brunk – none of the above [WM080]

none of the above‘, the follow-up to ‘ sept 2003 ‘, is a further exploration of the melancholic and more accessible side of brunk. It has a quiet vibe and mostly slow songs. Once again these songs are made of overdubbed and edited layers of cut-and-pasted guitars, softwaresynths, samples, beats etc; with at the same time lots of improvised elements and spontanuous aspects, uncorrected imperfections and a perhaps slightly naieve ‘homerecording lo-fi’ touch.

Keji Hamilton reviewed in MOJO

British music magazine MOJO have reviewed our release by Keji Hamilton & the Exousia Band in their June issue:

“Vintage Afrobeat from the man who used to open shows for the main man. A mainstay (on guitar and keyboards) of Fela Kuti’s Egypt 80 in the 1980s, Keji Hamilton can’t be accused of falling too far from the tree musically in the decade since his employer’s death. This is Afrobeat much as the man himself played it in the latter years of his career, though it lacks the grit and fury that made Kuti such an important musician in the 1970s. It would be difficult to imagine the Africa 70 recording a tune called Forever Live Jesus (Hamilton is now a pastor in Lagos), for example, although Bambiala (Beggars) and the anti-consumerism Designers would no doubt have been given an uproarious treatment. The band is well drilled, the horns and backing vocals wonderful, but there is never the sense that everything is teetering on the verge of collapse. Which might be why Kuti had him around so long.”

New brunk release

New free download, online now:

brunk – sept 2003

brunk is Bert Vanden Berghe, DIY lowbudget homerecording, without any musical restrictions or stylistic premises. The songs on ‘sept 2003′ were made somewhere between 2000 and september 2003. It’s not easy to describe or to pigeonhole, but I guess the music brunk recorded in those days had a certain pop kitsch factor, a naïeve but eclectic touch, and tries to explore some musical boundaries in a very personal way. There are some hints and twists that point in the direction of the more experimental stuff he’s doing recently, but all in all this one shows the more melodic and accessible side of brunk.
