[Holz001]: Ampheep – Tension (featuring Jaime McGill)

This new series of netlabel-releases brings to you music from artists involved with the Berlin Holzmund concerts. We aim to strengthen the bonds of our community, and share its precious outcome with you.

“Tension” is the first release produced by Holzmund-resident Ampheep. This project is built upon sounds originating from a recording session back in 2013, together with Jaime McGill improvising on her bass clarinet. The wooden instrument connected to sound effects, Jaime created percussive impulses and melodic elements. Ampheep provided an immersive environment of artificial drones, vibrating with a seductive acoustic feel. The tone of the whole session was inspired by the warm autumn light in the studio right by the river Spree.

The two ambient tracks share a rich background of constantly moving textures, as well as simple harmonic and rhythmic elements sneeking into the main focus of the listener. “Session One” comes with a surprising second half, drifting into an almost ritualistic pattern. The epic “Session Two” works a more elaborate theme, carefully groping for several evolving variations.

All music can be downloaded for free/ donation from our Bandcamp-page, and you are welcome to use it under a Creative Commons license (Attribution-ShareAlike).

Thank you for your interest in our work! All feedback is welcome 🙂

Handmade sounds, experimental performance, repetitive rhythms: „Holzmund“ refers to concerts with live processing and analog gear, as much as to the physical experience of a club night with electronic dance music. Thriving again in the focused atmosphere of the audiovisual laboratory „ANTJE ØKLESUND”.

Vieldimensionale Räumlichkeit

Already famous for her electro-acoustic songcraft and releases as Jasmina Maschina, just this year the studied sound artist put out her debut album as Jasmine Guffond on Sonic Pieces. Playing off-stage with additional speakers, she makes us immerse into delicate soundscapes, floating within hazy electronics, lost vocals, and ambient textures.
ilan katin will enrich the performance with live visuals, based on his own drawings.

In der Tiefe des Moments

Lenka Kocisova enters the stage with a wide and international background in performing arts and art management, nowadays active in the StratoFyzika collective, and the female:pressure network. Her forward-going techno live act „hiT͟Hərˈto͞o“ pushes participation on the dancefloor beyond the physical act, exploring possibilities of manipulating the space time continuum: The sound of the constant present.

Was tun, wenn’s tropft

Water and electronics: Keep them separated? With his audiovisual „Liquid Drum“ performance, Ampheep will work the opposite direction. Mechanical interventions, accidental real-time recordings and electronic processing assembled into a cavelike situation.
