Nicolas Bernier & Francisco Meirino "Fiction" LP
Fiction marks the first collaboration of sound artists Nicolas Bernier and Francisco Meirino. A study in feedback and psychoacoustics challenging the listeners perception and raising questions of what reality and fiction truly are.
Nicolas Bernier's exciting sound and installation work has been awarded the Prix Ars Electronica's Golden Nica award. His artistic concerns remain constant, an exploration of balance between the cerebral and the sensual, and between organic sound sources and digital processing.
Francisco Meirino, an accomplished sound artist at the top of his game has released multiple works on Misanthropic Agenda including his most recent, critically acclaimed solo album, "Notebook (Techniques of Self-Destruction)". He explores sound and its possibilities for failure while exhibiting his masterful editing and compositional skills.
Its perfectly fitting that these two artist come together to collaborate on this epic release.

Seitz Versus Gendreau "S/T" LP
Seitz Versus Gendreau is a collaborative experiment in using concrete
music compositional strategies.
These pieces were composed with created and found sound captured in San
Chorus After Rains: A strategy where we each use the same raw
sound clips with different results. The two pieces are then melded to
create one piece of music, the different modules becoming inseparable
Things Lost That Will Never Be Found: A composition with
live instruments, moving from a toy piano to various invented motor
instruments; a piece that transitions from melody to noise.
Trains Will Not Stop: Another Grand Surface Noise opera (Nr.
9), using the various sounds from records, composed by Gendreau and
re-mixed by Seitz using accelerometer recordings collected in San
Francisco during 2005.
SEITZ, based in Oakland, California and formerly a member of
Taxodiaceae, makes a rare foray into recording. Seitz is fascinated by
the re-contextualization of ephemeral sound such as- streams from
radio, lost and forgotten records, tangents of passing conversation,
fragmented voicemails, pieces of cassettes sound, field recordings by
amateurs, tv movie themes, and random and despised podcasts- and the
breakdown of the music bubble that surrounds most contemporary music
consumers. Seitz envisions a world where listeners actually listen and
no music is fetishized.
GENDREAU has composed and performed solo, as well as in
several group configurations since 1979. His former group Crawling With
Tarts (1983-1998) used ideas revolving around elementalism and
pre-language states. Gendreau has elaborated on these ideas while
adding concepts based on his studies in physics, philosophies attending
to temporal and environmental persistence, applications of parataxis,
and experiments with small motors and turntable mechanisms. His
performances have involved sounds from one-off transcription discs cast
by others in the middle of the last century, and those cut in his
studio using a decrepit lathe. More recently, Gendreau has sought to
extend these later studies, and to use buildings as a speaker. He
records the infrasonic vibrations of the performance space and in the
concert, he uses the structure's resonances as an additional instrument
in his site-specific compositions. These practices are based in part on
his current work as an acoustician, working primarily on low-vibration
and noise design for buildings.
Released in a limited edition of 90 copies, packaged in
deluxe tip-on jacket.

symptoms contained within.

Glass and Mirror" LP
From beautiful northern and southern California comes the duo of
John Wiese. Since the release of their first EP, The Disappearing Act
("unbearably intense" -The Wire), they have continued their live
collaboration up and down the West Coast. Panoramic Glass And Mirror
immerses the listener into a blend of sound layers, confronted with a
melodic and haunting atmospheric approach while still retaining immense
power. Side A was crafted from live recordings by John Wiese, while
was produced from studio sessions by Daniel Voss (Leviathan, Lurker Of
Chalice, Deathroes, Yellow Swans).

Jason Crumer "Walk With Me" CD
On his fourth studio album, Jason Crumer has further honed his
craftsmanship and focused his vision. Recorded with meticulous
precision, every sound is placed, mixed and arranged with purpose.
Crumer coaxes an unprecedented depth of sound out of layers of
electronics and field recordings. Romantic in nature and cinematic in
scope, "Walk with me" exemplifies Crumer's remarkable approach. The
album furthermore attests to his relentless honesty and total
dedication to his art.
