Architecture is the aesthetic design of spaces, buildings, structures,…the arrangement of volumes within space.
Architecture opts to combine aesthetics with practicality …
Art with robust construction…
Aesthetics is a matter of taste and mode of expression, robustness a matter of technical knowledge and delivery.
Aural architecture is all about a wisely selected bunch of background sounds to the life of the listener.
Throw your arms around imagination and quality!
27th November 2016
Too much time on the road has it’s benefits. Plenty of time to listen to new music, re-filter old favorites and essentially become a moving musical cocoon that let’s traffic by in favour of relaxing absorption of the sound and vision panopticon that surrounds the body and mind. I don’t know whether music is the elixir, the blood and the oxygen, I cannot be so sure as I evade from dissecting the natural and the instinctive most times. It certainly feels so. And undestandably, it may sound like the words of a loner, I fear not, it connects with most of us out there in the universe that is able to read these lines right now.
- Chris Cohen
West Coast indie fever and the cure is to keep on keeping on. Just like Mr Chris Cohen does in fact, layering his multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer mojo beyond his contribution to the awesome band Deerhoof between 2002–2006. Chase him before he does!
This goat hails from Japan, Osaka and they are an infectuous head-grabbing multilayered minimalism pandaemoneum! A mystery of awesome instrument craftmanship and dissection of rhythm in an intensively jaw-dropping fashion. The Boredoms come to mind, bringing out The Prodigy way before their inception. Sweet bliss of mayhem unleashed!
- Brian Eno
The fearless creationist and collaborationist requires little introduction and/or praises. At 68 he’s got a new album out, no big deal in terms of the age, another fascinating musical work is the big deal again. A very special collaboration of his this year was with Portuguese band The Gift. And a new one comes out in January 2017. So
business creation as usual for Brian Peter George Eno and so very blessed we are all.
Love to love this band from London, an original and smart name and a furiously energetic live combo. Andrew Milk, Billy Easter, Rachel Aggs play an intense open minded sharp funk punk exploding rocket pop! Through the sheer force of the basslines and the sharp dialogue of guitars and vocals along the way, their exotic upright speed dub joyfully takes shape. Again and again!
- Cold Cave
They play London in March 15 2017, a come back on stage since their support slot for Nine Inch Nails. They are currently touring the States. Wesley Eisold is of course the mastermind from within this cave of starkness and electro liberating caprice.
- Tribes Of Athens / Black Athena /
This week we’ll play along with the platform of Spotify, and a very important release that is up there waiting to be heard -hard and continuously- as it so rightfully deserves. Tribes Of Athens, by Black Athena, a super vibrant and prolific label in Athens, Greece, that has its thumb on the pulse of the urban funk, hip hop, techno grooves and deep down dirty sounds of the vast city. What this compilation does is bringing together a sonic snapshot of what is in reality a fish net pick from the huge musical production pool of Athens. Resistance through the years of the man made banking crisis is expertly done via music, arts and human come togethers from all tribes within these common geographical realms.
