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.
Even though both Monolog's album on Ad Noiseam so far have been of either the furious or the heavy kind, our favorite Berlin-based Dane is no stranger to calmer and glitchier sounds, as demonstrated in his past discography. He underlined this part of his art recently playing a live gig alongside Subheim in German capital, drowning an art gallery in semi-improvised soundscapes and dark atmospheres.
A recording of this show has been made available through the French magazine SeekSickSound. This new podcast can be listened to below or with the accompanying article (in French) over there. Click here to download this set.
Ad Noiseam is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of 2methyl's "Layer 8" (adn187). Coming a year after his first release on the label ("Orb", adn175), this album is the debut full length for this very talented musician.
With Semiomime, Noel Wessels steps outside of the dancefloor he cherishes as DJ Hidden and The Outside Agency to rather focus on more cinematic and atmospheric moods. This was already the case with the "From Memory" album (adn139, 2011), then demonstrated again in March's "Spring" mix. This new "Summer" one is less glitchy, unfolding slowly from ambient tracks to thicker, more beat-based material, all the while staying very introvert and personal.
You can listen to Ad Noiseam's podcast #7, Semiomime's "Summer" nocturne here or below. The tracklisting is after the cut, and its predecessor is here. Tune back in three months for "Autumn" and remember that "Winter" will be followed by a brand new Semiomime album. Finally, note that Semiomime's "Nocturne" podcast series is not a first for Noel Wessels, who had already signed a six-part "Enclosed" odyssey as DJ Hdden.
Friday Freebie: we hope that you've been enjoying 2methyl's "Resilience", which is taken from this musician's upcoming "Layer 8" album. There's more on the menu from him tonight. This artist had prepared a medley for his previous "Orb" EP early last year, to present the whole thing in one short mix. What we're making available today follows the same idea: a trip through the whole "Layer 8" album, taking only a little more than 10 minutes and enabling you to get a better idea of this work.
Friday Freebie: the following track by Stavros Gasparatos, "Browning" is the shortest piece on his forthcoming "Expanded Piano" album (adn186, coming out on August 17th). A pivotal moment in the performance, it displays a rather "classical" use of the piano, but is followed in the album by more experimental moments, in which, for example, Stavros Gasparatos hits the instrument wooden frame to trigger his contact microphones. One of the more emotional pieces from the album, it should also appeal to people who have enjoyed Ben Lukas Boysen's "Gravity" album (adn168).

The most astute of you know that they already can stream a lot more than just this track over here, but we're aware that social platforms are where all the cool kids listen to their music. Therefore, click here or below to listen to "Resilience", a first full length track taken from 2methyl's "Layer 8":
Some of the previous artists featured in this series had chosen to focus almost entirely on their own material, some others had gone in a more DJ set direction; Gore Tech's episodes sits a bit in the middle, with a lot of tracks taken from "Futurphobia" and the rest being tracks written by his close friends. This podcast is a family affair of sort, and a great one at that.
