Free Download: ASIC - Pentaprism EP

The third release on Hula Bytes comes from ASIC . The [hub03] Pentaprism EP explores the in-betweens of Electronica, Techno, Glo-Fi and Poststep with an architectural approach. The digital EP comes as free download (licensed under Creative Commons, BY-NC-SA) and as "Laser Cuttable".

Coming from his year-long performing routine, ASIC has recorded two EPs that are being released via Hula Honeys and sub_perversion simultaneously. While the TAPA EP on subper.ch explores the deeper Poststep influences, the [hub03] Pentaprism EP on Hula Honeys opens the musical spectrum towards Glitch-Hop, Techno and Bass.

The tracks of the TAPA EP and the PENTAPRISM EP are rooted in live sessions. ASIC moves through soft, harsh or wild city scapes that are ever evolving, temptingly rough and delicate at the same time. A night time walk with this city’s soundtrack is a journey full of surprises and twists. While skyline is of mere architectural beauty, the surfaces are full of mechanical decay and organic growth. Moody sounds can be lurking behind every corner.

Both releases are available as digital downloads. They are accompanied by PDF-Files that can be laser cutted on arbitrary material, similar to a vinyl record. The necessary script was developed and written by Amanda Ghassaei . Both the music and the script are licensed under Creative Commons (BY-NC-SA).

The release is available as free download on the release page .

Moods Artist in Residence: Simon Berz

The drummer and sound artist Simon Berz – half of FELL – has been working on a very unique sonic world for years. He is interested in the in-betweens: nature, people, media and machines are his working material, his focus lies on instable states.

Simon Berz looks out for the beauty in any given moment and the value of the unimpressive. In the past years, he's developed manyfold approaches to sounding material. With his self-developed Lithophon, he uses an array of stones to create fragile rhythms and noises through analogue electronics and feedbacks. This approach is also his – so to say – standard when he baits unheard sounds out his drum set.

The renowned Jazz club Moods invited Simon Berz to their last residency of the year. He is curating three nights under the theme of „instabile moments“ in December, featuring like minded artists: IOKOI , Simona Bosco, Flo Stoffner, Moose Jackson & Rob Cambre, Vincent Membrez, Linda Vogel, Xu Fengxia, Bettina Boller and Toktek , of course.

"Lisboa / Skagaströnd" by Jen Reimer + Max Stein out now:

The 16th release on Hula Honeys has been cooking up for quite a while. Finally, we're happy to release Jen Reimer + Max Stein 's "Lisboa / Skagaströnd" on tape and as digital download. The tape edition is limited to 100 copies and can be ordered via our Bandcamp store .

Jen Reimer (CAN) and Max Stein (USA) share a fascination with reverberant spaces. Drawing inspiration from the hidden harmonies and secret rhythms present in urban sound enviroments, they create immersive multichannel sound works for processed horn and field recordings: conceived, composed, performed and recorded in the spaces themselves.
This release features two performances in resonant, yet very different locations. "Lisboa" was recorded in the former cistern Mãe D’Áqua, an architectural cathedral for water and it's sounds. In "Skagaströnd", Jen Reimer + Max Stein take their listeners into the inside of an old chimney in Iceland, and slowly reveal it's glistening, fulminating wavy sound. Both works make the entanglement of sound and space tangible for those who let themselves glide into the recordings.
The tape version comes with a riso-printed poster by Hraïr Hratchian and a download code.

FELL and the Incubate Kidsorchestra
out now!

The 2nd EP of FELL is out now via our Bandcamp store . The release is available as CD or Digital Download.

"FELL and the Incubate Kidsorchestra" documents a creative journey FELL undertook at Incubate Festival in late 2013 together with the Kidsorchestra. FELL collaborated with the kids in several workshops.

Starting out from scratch, they used any sounding material they could find, such as personal belongings, found objects and trash to build simple instruments and to record rhythmic patterns and sounds. The elements found on this EP were designed, tried out and modified collaboratively. FELL created four pieces of music out of the material by adding beats and melodies to the recordings of the Kidsorchestra and winding the recorded patterns, frazzled voices and athmospheric glimpses through a digital microcosm and the guts of selfmade electronics. The EP is being released in collaboration with Incubate Festival and Badabum . A first track is now up on our Soundcloud account.

Bit-Tuner: The Japan Syndrome Release

On March 26th 2014, Bit-Tuner's second live album «The Japan Syndrome» will be released as 12“ vinyl. After a successful digital release in late 2013, Hula Honeys is teaming up with Berenice Recordings to bring you this special edition live album.

Recorded at Zurich's Helsinki Klub, «The Japan Syndrome» is a fragmentary snap shot, a rampant audio(visual) trip through Japan's largest cities, that Bit-Tuner visited in spring 2013. He captures these cities via field recordings to then transform the found sound into his characteristic dark beats and minimalistic sounds.

«The Japan Syndrome - Vinyl Edition» is a coproduction between Hula Honeys and Berenice Recordings . The record will be available via our Bandcamp store , and in the shop your choice.
