New review of Ed Osborn's Stone North from Neural: "dense with sensitive connections, idealized and gathered together giving life to a listening experience that is perhaps not immediately gratifying, but has an undeniable charm, depth and pleasure. This is absolutely a release not to be missed."

Blevin Blectum’s sixth solo album, Irradiance, a collection of material that was originally generated for an immersive installation/performance space with ten channels of sound spreading a moody delusion involving planetary/solar magnetic lines of force, antique hot air filling rooms through the patterns of decorative iron grates, late evening decrepit pump organ sessions, and real-time-processed scraps of percussion, is available now in a letterpress printed / hand numbered edition of 200 carefully crafted releases.

We are proud to announce that Mem1’s Tetra LP has made its way into Textura magazine’s list of the top albums of the year. Here’s what they say:
Having performed together under the Mem1 name since 2003, Mark (analogue modular and electronics) and Laura Cetilia (cello and electronics) have developed a symbiotic and highly personalized approach to experimental music-making that’s commendably uncompromising, and ample evidence of their approach is captured on the duo’s fourth full-length album, which was recorded during the spring months of 2010. Using custom hardware and software, the pair manipulates the cello’s natural timbre using real-time modular synthesis patching, a process that results in a sound that’s unique and immediately identifiable as Mem1.




Some really amazing reviews have been pouring in for Mem1’s Tetra LP—Static Sound says that
The sound world created by Laura and Mark Cetilia is dark and otherwordly but very human nonetheless. Far from exploring desolated isolationist realms, Tetra displays an astonishing primal energy that transcend the duo’s intentions, and turns this album into something rather unique and beautiful.
while Future Sequence proclaims
This triptych of constructed stories, full of beautiful harmonics, raw noise and sonic impurities is certainly affecting. There is something about Tetra that really resonates; there feels like an exploration going on, a fervency to finding new sounds, and a need to align them in new ways. A highly rewarding listen, one that allows the listener to embed themselves within, become lost in and suspend time for the album’s duration.
and Fluid Radio asserts that
The measured brush strokes on Tetra are a triumph for Mem1. Each moment is significant to the next as these three profound pieces move beyond the reality of the sounds to create an ongoing expedition into the uncanny.
