ok, it’s not 12k.. but it is 12rec… Autistici has a new track that’s available on the compilation Through the Mirror: adcBicycle Revisioned. it’s a free download, and described as:

adcBicycle is Matt Chisholm from Ottawa, Canada. Matt had an EP on Kikapu (RIP) back in 2006 which was on heavy rotation in my player. After finishing his new album one year later, Matt decided not to release it. He got in contact with a bunch of artists he is friends with or fan of, asking them to revisionize his tunes. We are proud to publish this versatile compilation album of boundless and blissful Pop music!

The fun starts with a dizzy electro rap-track by umami from Seattle. allthatfall from New Orleans then add his idea modern up-tempo Pop in a indietronic outfit while Albatrocity of Kansas goes for the Folk- and vocal-harmonies in Matt’s music. In his Fell disguise, Seattle sound engineer John McCaig guides adcBicycle into his echo chamber and delivers a steel drum-driven piece of enthralling electro dub. Five is zanf (UK) with damped trumpet and a thousand pounding drums. Roughly divided into two parts, the poppy one is capped by Wisconsin He Can Jog’s magnificent adaptation of the bicycle music.

Scotland based Wii wizard The Amazing Rolo opens the second part with a playful remix. Afterwards, map~map (Portland, USA) takes you on a smooth boat ride with chimes and processed guitars before it is North Carolina’s Chimp Logic who sends adcBicycle into space and beyond. UK all-rounder Autistici delivers an amorphous track between field recordings and live-processing and, finally, Portland shoegazer The OO-Ray proves his mastership in mighty cello drones. Lean and boneless beauty overall. You don’t want to miss this record.

you can get it here.

NICE REVIEW OF SAWAKO’S “BITTER SWEET” September 11, 2008

Massimo Ricci’s Brain Dead Eternity blog has posted a nice review of “Bitter Sweet”

for a complete archive of Sawako’s “Bitter Sweet” reviews, go here.

Looking at the impressive curriculum vitae of Sawako, which includes a Master’s degree in Interactive Communications and studies in “Networked Expression, Physical Computing, Post Linear Narrative and Audio/Visual”, one is almost taken aback by the tender greeting that Bitter Sweet, probably the most emotionally intense work she’s given birth to, reserves to the listener.

A polymorphism of warm textures whose ever-changing nuances – best appreciated in two heartrendingly stunning tracks such as “Deep Under” and “Looped Labyrinth, Decayed Voice” – put our thoughts in that zone where childhood’s pureness of reminiscence and the candour of a vital ecstasy meet. A multi-chambered wintriness only rarely illuminated by traces of shimmering light, immediately dissipated by a copious leafiness of meshed melodies, rather simple but, in their intersections, projecting huge shadows all around the place where you’re standing. It’s without a doubt a splendid album, also for the reason that the composer wisely chose to focus the effort on the instrumental weaving, leaving her frail vocal tone appear exclusively in the final “A Last Next”. The whole gains both in concentration and grief, the Japanese girl returning to the highs reached in Yours Gray on And/OAR, making us care for her music with renewed fervour. Among the guest artists, Ryan Francesconi and Jacob Kirkegaard.

A modern ambient miniature masterpiece, with more than a fair share of highlights: play Tsubomi, Saku in infinite repeat at sunset and deliver yourself from the burden of an ineffectual mortal subsistence.

savvas in "the sleeping morning" sessions

in this month of september, 2 very talented artists will be visiting my studio to work on music.

first, we see the first ever pairing of myself with Shuttle358’s Dan Abrams. this work will start next week and we’re very exited about it. Dan has been part of 12k nearly since the beginning, so it’s only natural that we finally put our heads together and create something.

secondly, as people have hoped, Savvas Ysatis will be here again and we’ll be recording our follow-up to last year’s “The Sleeping Morning”.

i will keep you posted with pics and updates.
