descriptions, reviews, &c.

Miguel A. García (aka Xedh) from the Basque country, is one of the most dynamic sound artists in the Spanish scene. His work focuses mainly on the composition and electro-acoustic improvisation. He uses sounds taken from electronic devices residues, often interrelated with field recordings or acoustic instruments, in the search of an intimate, intense and immersive experience. A music of adventurous forms, full of contrasts and having nevertheless a sense of humor. His background comprises fine arts and audiovisual technology, having created projects such as Válvula Antirretorno, Baba Llaga or Mubles, questioning the borders between electro-acoustic academic music, industrial music and the so called outsider music.

August Traeger is the leader of Bicephalic Records, a DIY record label for modern experimental music presenting limited small editions of cassettes, records, cds, and dvds. His sound work includes extensive performance with 910 Noise, and a long list of experimental releases under his own name, plus Somnaphon and Food World. The playful and odd tracks on this cassette were recording using contact mic + broken stringed instrument + voice + puredata + hardware effects.
