BisonogramEvematic was a solo project by Eve Thacker, who sadly passed away in January 2013. Eve’s solo release on Earthrid, Bisonogram, was recorded according to her typical methods, which used a unique combination of exotic analogue and bargain-basement digital audio units, wired together in her home studio. The results are not to be missed for anyone with an ear for unique electronic music that is by turns joyful and suspenseful.

This album was originally released by Earthrid on CD in 2004 and is now made available again as a free download.

cover artWe have a new release for you. The exceptional debut album by Norah Lorway is a unique blend of ambience and glitch. Norah says:-

“Most of the sounds you will hear on this album were synthesised using the music programming language SuperCollider, with some custom-made performance interfaces created in Max/MSP.

The music was informed by many genres, including ambient, drone, algorithmic and glitch but it is not constrained to just these. The music is a hybrid of many traditions and I hope it will speak for itself”.

i’ve had dreams like this is available on CD and as a free download.

The Late Carya Amara

Earthrid 013 cover smallIt’s been a decade since Carya Amara started Earthrid with the visceral electronic album Vestigial Digital. It was followed by two retrospectives of music dating back as far as 1980, Extinction Frequency and Tales of the Unattractive. Since then there have been collaborative projects (released on Earthrid) and related musical ventures but no solo Carya Amara… but now here at last is The Late Carya Amara.

Anyone (and there were quite a few) who was perplexed by the diverse approaches of previous releases is unlikely to find this one any easier to decode – but the receptive listener, maybe armed with a good pair headphones, will find this to be an immersive (if sometimes chilly) experience. Released in summer in the UK, the album’s snowy themes are definitely unseasonal… but did you really want to wait any longer for The Late Carya Amara?

Download The Late Carya Amara now for free or add the CD-R to your collection.

Adrift off the Islets of Langerhans is an album of majestic, brooding mood music from Yorkshire’s master of ambience, Cousin Silas. The atmosphere ranges from the menacing to the pastoral, from the joyous to the serene.

Earthrid-011-cover-250.jpgWe are delighted to announce the release of One Million Corners, the debut by Spill Twins. A lot of the tracks were written with an audience of abandoned robots in mind. It gets stranger from there… Imagine electronic music which is by turns wistful and chirpy… or better still, just download the album now and give it a try!

One Million Corners is available as a free download and as a cheap, but lovingly packaged, CD.

Elliot Smith, the man behind Spill Twins, works as a software developer, specialising in open source applications. His one-man music project reflects this perspective and, although software is used to produce the music, Elliot tries to spend zero money on software and sounds, since he finds that the constraints enforced by a limited set of software helps him to focus on the music.

One Million Corners presents some of the best tracks recorded over the first decade and a half of the project. Elliot says “I try to make moving music. I start tracks from rhythms, and sometimes with a scenario in mind: very often it involves sad robots on forgotten space stations. That’s who I imagine is listening!”.
