OUTIN001 – SADAF – SHELL EP

SHELL is the debut EP from SADAF, exploring a young cineaste’s failed script and discombobulated thought process. The loose narrative of the album pivots from the narrator’s viewpoint to the fictional characters she has imagined. Grappling with writers block and a self-sabotaging disposition, the narrator decides to burn the script and start anew. Burning a script becomes an exorcise in burning an image of oneself, leaving behind an empty shell or crust without a formed center. The shrill combustible sounds and crackling beats echo the destructive sentiments that plague the narrator’s creative process.

Callie Ryan – HEALTH CS

HEALTH is a tender meditation on loss and the resulting desire for comfort – be it familial, physical, emotional or romantic.

In October of 2016, Callie fractured her collarbone in a frightening car accident, supported her father through a cancer scare, and experienced the extreme loss felt by her community following the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. HEALTH was created in the wake of these events. While these swells of loss brought about the popping of an imagined safety bubble, and a new presence of fear and vulnerability, they also birthed the rapid realization that she needed to slow down, release control and replace it with calm-confidence and gratitude. It is an exploration of home, nostalgia, gratitude, fear and the manifestation of anxieties. It documents Callie’s journey of discovering her feminine sexuality, as well as the grounding effects of partnership, and the intimate exchanges between loved ones.

Throughout HEALTH, Callie utilizes field recordings of her loved ones and her home, exploring the idea that nostalgia, sadness, and familial warmth can be felt without context of whose voice you’re listening to. HEALTH aims to prove that love, vulnerability and fear are guttural instincts, universally shared.

xxxxxxxxx

Callie is a Los Angeles based electronic musician and vocalist who creates textured compositions with a vulnerable and intentional foundation whilst aiming to invoke feelings of tenderness and self-reflection. Her projects document the search for a balance between the masculine and feminine, as well as presenting fluid feelings of ever-changing physical, emotional, and sexual anxieties and gratitudes alike. Exploring our abject and unaddressed internal anatomical systems and their connection to our feelings and actions is a core foundational brick for Callie’s compositions. She works to express tangible gut responses through emotive and detail-oriented sonic production.

Callie is a resident DUBLAB DJ, and has performed alongside artists such as Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Sage Caswell, Kelman Duran, Aisha Devi, Loscil, Leech, Violence, Daedelus, Jimmy Tamborello (DNTEL), and more. She is currently working on her first score for the feature film, LADYWORLD, directed by Amanda Kramer, and preparing to release her debut record, HEALTH, via Los Angeles based label, OUTSIDE INSIGHT, coming out on March 28th 2018.

Deantoni Parks – Technoself LP

“The relationship between music and technology is always evolving … but true music can not exist without a soul. Some extraordinary musicians augment their natural talents with technology, adopting its benefits to fuel their own singular vision, and that is the basis of Deantoni Parks’ debut album Technoself.

Parks is one of the finest drummers working today, displaying a sleek and intuitive balance between raw rhythmic physicality and machine-like precision. He can play on one hand what many great drummers could not achieve with two – which he does frequently. His skills have seen him perform with artists such as John Cale, Sade, The Mars Volta, Flying Lotus and his own boundary-pushing group KUDU, among others. Notable collaborations aside, Parks is an artist in his own right, constantly in motion and expanding towards something new.

On Technoself, you hear Parks totally in control. Three of the tracks were recorded live in a session at Dub Lab, the others in a studio. In his own words, “The sound result of Technoself is a digestion of sounds being refined, filtered, and re-arranged in the time period of the average thought.” There are no overdubs or loops on this record. The sound is that of “segmented, split-second curated soundscapes atop a highway of refined, war-drum rhythms.” The album plays out like a percussive crash course winding through Parks’ diverse influences and moods, where the only constant is Deantoni’s unmistakable sense of movement. In this case, the most important piece of technology turns out to be the human body.”

Alessandro Cortini & Masami Akita (Merzbow) – S/T LP

Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) and Japanese noise legend Masami Akita (Merzbow) share a mutual love for the EMS Synthi, a British synthesizer from the early ’70s notorious for its patch matrix, portability, and distinct tone. Astonishingly, these two disparate artists meld into a single sound as they flex the analog circuitry of the EMS Synthi in new ways; giving this classic synth a modern workout and proving that, in capable hands, a 40-year-old analog synthesizer is a tool for the ages. Metallic shimmer print on heavy duty jackets; 180 gram vinyl.

Alessandro Cortini – Forse 3 LP (Translucent Purple Vinyl)

Forse 3 is the final release in Alessandro Cortini‘s Forse Trilogy. Like parts 1 and 2, Forse 3 has a distinct sound and feeling. Edition of 500. Alessandro Cortini recorded Forse using a Buchla Music Easel; of which only 13 are known to exist. “Forse,” meaning “maybe” in Italian, is a series of three double LP releases. “All pieces were written and performed live on a Buchla Music Easel, in the span of one month. I found that the limited array of modules that the instrument offers sparked my creativity. Most pieces consist of a repeating chord progression, where the real change happens at a spectral/dynamic level, as opposed to the harmonic/chordal one. I believe that the former are just as effective as the latter, in the sense that the sonic presentation (distortion, filtering, wave-shaping, etc.) are just as expressive as a chord change or chord type, and often reinforce said chord progressions. Of all the years with Nine Inch Nails, the period spent writing and recording the instrumental record Ghosts I-IV is probably the one which changed my approach to music-making the most. After that record I started getting more into instrumental composition, although I tried to approach it in a different way. While we had a vast array of tools and instruments at our disposal then, I decided to approach my pieces limiting myself to one instrument only, as I found myself being more decisive when faced with a limited creative environment.”

Various – The Enlightening Beam of Bobby Brown CASSETTE/Book

Bobby Brown exists beyond being. Bobby’s documented music covers a dynamic emotional and spiritual terrain, his vocals, ever prominent, traverse six octaves of sound. Bobby’s understanding of — and unbending faith — in physics and technology manifest in unbelievable instrumental and intellectual innovations. Bobby’s dedication to the fundaments of peace and love radiate across time and space.

Operating at the fringe of the early 70s psychedelic and folk spheres, his 1972 self-funded and released debut album, The Enlightening Beam of Axonda, demonstrates the many cosmic qualities of Bobby Brown. Beyond Bobby’s voice and message, the most beguiling aspect of Enlightening is “The Universal One Man Orchestra,” a 311 stringed instrument implementing aspects of the Irish harp, koto, sitar, thumb piano, dulcimer, drums and flute and “designed to be as small as possible and placed on racks so as to be be played from one spot.”

Bobby’s description of the instrument (“primitive, contemporary, and futuristic”) may also serve as a description of the album itself. At once an intimate invocation and a universal journey of earthly and otherworldly proportions, the album ruminates on the vacillating cultural climate of its time and a prayer for a more peaceful place and existence, Axonda.

The following two albums, Live, which was performed solely to his dog ‘Mom’ and recorded after Bobby opened in concert for Fleetwood Mac 1978, and 1982‘s Prayers of a One Man Band, which added hints of popular flavor with a more outward social commentary and comedy, continue along Brown’s illuminated path, spinning tales of his spiritual home in Hawaii, of love, and of total religious unity.

Almost thirty years later, Bobby and RVNG’s Matt Werth struck up a friendship on the back of an e-mail introduction fromDouglas Mcgowan of Yoga Records. After years of correspondence, Bobby and Matt revisited some of the many stories they’ve exchanged at the Berkeley Art Museum on an invitation from David Wilson to participate in a multi-dimensional residency, The Possible. Bay Area artists Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Austin Cesear complimented the discussion with new musical interpretations of Bobby’s work.

A recording of Smith and Cesear’s performances alongside Bobby and Matt’s talk and a compassionate array of photos taken by Aubrey Trinnaman have been collected as a limited cassette and art book edition available from RVNG Intl.
