Friday Freebie: a darkstep & breakcore NYE reminiscence
Friday Freebie: while most of the free music posted on this page are live sets or new material by musicians on the Ad Noiseam roster, this week's giveaway is not. What you can listen to here is an improvised DJ set played by Nicolas Chevreux (yours truely, founder of the label), played at the now defunct Subland club on NYE 2014. This party was organized by DEFCE and featured, among others, Swarm Intelligence, Monolog, Sonair and Submerged.

I hope you'll enjoy this mix, which was actually recorded live (which explains the drops in volume and the fact that you can hear the crowd), without any artificial beatmatching. And if you like what you hear, note that there will be a repeat experience of sort at the new Void club in Berlin on September 5th.

The Collective Podcast interviews Ben Lukas Boysen.
Audio interviews are much too rare these days considering how practical they are for people who drive, take the subway or can work with their headphones on. The extensive one run by The Collective Podcast with Ben Lukas Boysen (a.k.a Hecq) is therefore a very welcome one, and though we wish the audio was a little bit clearer, we strongly recommend everybody to click play below (or here) and listen to Ben talking about his music, his past, his productions and life in general.

Ableton spotlight about Stavros Gasparatos.

We are not the only ones impressed by the ideas and craftmanship behing Stavros Gasparatos's "Expanded Piano" performances and artwork. Ableton (well known for their Ableton Live software) has published today an article about this artist, his place in a series of musicians innovating what can be done with the piano as musical instruments, and the techniques he used to record his brand new album.

This article, "Stavros Gasparatos Takes Us Inside the Piano", can be read here on the Ableton website. You can also check a video with Stavros Gasparatos there, and of course listen to this new album here.

out today: Stavros Gasparatos's "Expanded Piano"

We are proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Stavros Gasparatos's second Ad Noiseam album, "Expanded Piano" (adn186). Following "Seven" (adn170, 2013), the new album by this Greek composer was recorded in 2014 at the EMPAC hall in Troy, NY and is the fruit of a study of the concept of the piano as a musical instrument.

"Expanded Piano" can be purchased right now on vinyl (coming with a download code), on CD or as digital files. You can listen to several excerpts here, or to a full track on Ad Noiseam's Soundcloud page. A short video shot of the performance during which this album was recorded is available here.

Brillant video of Stavros Gasparatos performing "Expanded Piano" in Athens.

With the release of Stavros Gasparatos's "Expanded Piano" album drawing very near (it is coming out this Friday, and pre-orders are now being shipped), we are proud to present you a video of this artist performing this piece at the prestigious Athens Festival's Megaron Concert Hall, last June.

The "Expanded Piano" album was recorded (in all its 24 channels glory) at the EMPAC hall of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, but this performance is meant to be repeated and presented to audiences worldwide. The video below documents this piece's second live execution, which took place a couple of months ago in Stavros Gasparatos's native Athens.

We are thankful to the Athens Festival team for the efforts they put into inviting Stavros Gasparatos and enabling him to perform in such excellent conditions. We strongly recommend you to dim the light, enjoy this great video, and spread the word about it.

Monolog draws the line with a free new track.

Monolog draws the line with a free new track.
Freebie, but this week not on a Friday: Monolog is celebrating a new milestone in his Facebook follower-count by giving away a new, free track. Hard, sharp and fast, the "Drawing Lines" he just offered us are reminiscent of his "2 Dots Left" Ad Noiseam debut, and the rumor has it that they might also appear on a forthcoming (longer) Monolog release.

Click here or below to listen to Monolog's "Drawing Lines" and, of course, go and support this artist on Facebook as well.

Announcing Swarm Intelligence's "Rust" album
Saturday, 15 August 2015 18:06

We've putting the finishing touches to the artwork at the moment, and will therefore use at the moment a photo of this album's test pressing to announce Swarm Intelligence's forthcoming sequel to his 2014 Ad Noiseam debut "Faction" (adn183):

Swarm Intelligence's "Rust" (adn188) will come out in October on double gatefold, clear-vinyl LP, on CD and as digital files. Stay tuned for more information, audios and pre-ordering links (while we also take this opportunity to remind you about the impending releases of Stavros Gasparatos's "Expanded Piano" and the vinyl version of Igorrr's "Nostril").

Friday Freebie: a short live set from Monolog, a long DJ one from Swarm Intelligence

Friday Freebie: a short live set from Monolog, a long DJ one from Swarm Intelligence
Friday Freebie: this week's Ad Noiseam free extra is double, very fresh, and unequal in its part. Both Monolog and Swarm Intelligence (among many other people) played at the 2015 edition of Freqs Of Nature, a yearly festival taking place outside of Berlin every July. Both recorded their sets and both have made them (or part of them available) for us all to enjoy, and you can listen to both below.

Each artist had his particular approach to the festival and his recording: whereas Monolog's played a live drum'n'bass set and chose to make only 6 minutes available here (don't blame him, he had another full podcast out this week), Swarm Intelligence went for a DJ-set, available in all its 2 hour glory there.

Click below for both sets, we hope they'll be an adequate start to your week-end.
