John Cage - Winter Music
Composed in 1957 Winter Music is piano composition from reviled & respected modern classical & Avant grade composer John Cage. Here we have a 2017 release of a 2014 recording of the work, and I must say I was both pleasantly surprised & taken by this wonderfully jarring & angular work.
Visitation / Transgresia - S/T
The self-titled split between Visitation and Transgresia came out on Ominous Recordings late December last year on a black c60 cassette tape. Visitation is the HNW project of Shaun Mara from Australia, who runs amazing labels such as Needle & Knife and Palinopsia - offering a veritable range of all things delicious noise. Transgresia is the relatively new and positively industrious project of Marko Šiljeg from Serbia - since birthing the project Marko has knocked out wall after wall like he's making up for lost time!
Dosis Letalis - Confronting The Inhuman
Confronting The Inhuman is a recent two track CDR from Serbian based walled noise/ static texturing project Dosis Letalis. The two ‘walls’ enclosed are both densely weaved, creatively texture, and rather mysterious & a little unsettling in their make-up.
Nar/Vomir - Split
This untitled HNW split has one of the more artily brutal & primal presentations I’ve seen- the shell scratched cassette comes wrapped in a black piece of ripped fabric, and this comes inside a bent, battered & scratched sheet of steel.  The C46 brings together two of the most darkly intense, brutal unforgiving, and nihilistic focused HNW projects on the planet- Frances Vomir, and the USA based Nar- with each party offering up a similar nasty & unrelenting example of HNW roasting.
Bruising Pattern/She Destroys Hope - Split
Here we have a C30 spilt that brings together two euro-based walled noise acts. Each artist takes up a side of a tape, with each offering a single fifteen-minute track, which leans more towards structure shifting wall-making. And for the split, we have Austrian based Bruising Pattern, and German-based She Destroys Hope. The release appears on the always worth Russian based wall label Reason Art Records.
Choisir Le Pire - Représentation du Six
French power electronics project Choisir Le Pire brings forth the grimy funk on the limited tape,  Représentation du Six. Consisting of one near twenty minute track, this no frills, ripping approach is a refreshing taste of blistering, throbbing noise. Recorded live (the best way), the lack of overdubs gives the listener a front row seat to scathing static in is glory.
