ONGAKU2 Short Stories [LBN018]

30 minutes of music in 12 short tracks.
A sounds and vision’s collection and dreamlike prophecies.
A constellation of intimate sounds and images.
12 improvisations of 2:30 minutes.
One little story.

Ongaku2 is a duo from Sardinia (Italy) that combinds the need to mix sound and silence with a resulting istant composition based on improvisation, experimentation and timbrical-research.
The duo is composed by Elia Casu (prepared guitars, electronics) and Paolo Sanna (drums, percussions, objects).

Menion – Menion [LBN019]

“This new release collects the material composed between 2012 and 2013. The songs have been strongly influenced by the musical scenario of Berlin, where I have been living in the last two years. Almost without realizing it, I have re-interpreted what I have seen and heard, while sifting in the fleeting personal feelings. The listeners of this CD will find evident quotations from other musical genres: it’s up to you to find out…But there’s more to it: my pieces of music are tales and records of emotions where reality constantly intertwines with imagination and, hopefully, each of you will see fragments and parts of your own life in them.This release is a landing place but, as such, it is also a new starting point towards something yet mysterious and, at the same time, captivating: something that is worth discovering.”

[LBN028] Madoka Ogitani – “Take a Walk”

The colors of spring.
A piano, a delicate guitar arpeggio, a flute and tiny sounds.
The beauty of simplicity.
This is Madoka Ogitani.
Five tracks to listen to while you’re taking a walk.¦

[LBN005] Ballpen – The dreams trilogy

This music is based on how my dreams have been working throughout the years.
The thing I like about dreams is that there are no schemes, no shames, no recipes and everything can happily or strangely cohabit with everything else.
The way the songs are composed are similar to what i’ve expereinced in my dream so far. Like the hospital in my hometown turned upside down and placed in the middle of a race circuit, or me riding a turtle dressed up like Darth Vader, chasing my auntie along the dock of an unknown port in Malaysia. And other billions of strange and funny combinations of the puzzle-pieces of my life.
And everybody is life I suppose.
Some of this dreams are made in a song form, some others are built like a possible dream would develop. Some vocal parts sound like somebody that is sleep talking and the music is supposed to be what is sonically going on in his/her head or you can hear that the music melts when somebody is falling asleep. And if you listen at a reasonable low volume you can still hear the music and what’s going on in the room next to yours at the same time.
It is very interesting. I swear.
Apart from this, I also think that this music is good for your heart.
This album has been recorded inside a cardboard box.
