Hati "Wild Temple" - new studio album recorded by Rafał Iwański and Rafał Kołacki with special guest Sławomir Ciesielski - great percussionist and drummer of legendary Polish rock band Republika in 80.
Republika was one of the most original European bands - thanks to their specific anti-mainstream rock & roll songs, with new wave-inspired music and lyrics). HATI forms a link between a personal interest in modern improvised and acoustic music with ritual and meditation.
They worked together in 2010 on several tracks presented on the album and finally all material was recorded in big military objects in Torun from XIX century called Fort I. After the recording session the trio played one concert in Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun.

Mia Zabelka, Zahra Mani & Lydia Lunch have collaborated on the seductively sinister full-length recording of Medusa’s Bed, which will be released on Monotype Records on October 30th, 2013. Medusa’s Bed fuses Mia Zabelka’s Avant violin stylings to Zahra Mani’s psychoambient soundscapes creating an other worldly surround, the perfect illustration forthe nocturnal vocals of Lydia Lunch.
Medusa’s Bed is reminiscent of a murder mystery or hypnotic late night radio drama. Evocative and suspenseful, a threat of something devious, sneaking up out of the dark and whispering an invitation to your shadow. “Linked due to their ability to physically affect the subject, desire and rage, two of those most feral of urges, exist deep in the limitless free-flow of the unconscious.
These may be the very excess of all emotions, when all else has been articulated and temporarily spent these twin urges can still spit forth; they exceed simple containment. Instead they demand like an incessant, raw itch to be scratched again and again, until finally, even under dirty bitten-uneven-nails, the surface gives way, the skin breaks and along the thin trails blood blossoms. But no adequate crust can form; any scab will be picked away.
Rather, these urges demand unending physical satisfaction; they work through the body, manifest on and across it: “Bloodlust and Oblivion.” Jack Sargeant Mia Zabelka, sound artist, violinist and vocalist from Vienna. She has developed a unique language based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin’s sonic possibilities, expanding the instrument using live electronic devices and innovative performance techniques.
Thus she constructs and explores the limits of sound and music in a language entirely her own. The violin, voice and her own body transform into sound bodies, which are at once organic and primal, screaming, lyrical, composed and explosive. Zahra Mani lives in Austria and Croatia. As a composer and multi-instrumentalist, she creates pulsing, shifting soundscapes derived from her burgeoning archive of instrumental and found sound that she has been recording and developing since 2002.
Her work focuses on spaces between, where field recordings, voices, instruments, machines, the sea, the wind, animals and landscapes provide the acoustic basis for auditory worlds. Lydia Lunch is a restless nomad forever traveling the globe in search of new collaborators.
An independent artist prolific in music, literature, spoken word, film and photography, she was voted by Timeout New York as one of the most influential performers originating from NYC. She has performed as well as taught workshops at numerous Universities, Museums and Art Festivals for three decades and continues to explore new mediums in which to express her passion and creativity.

Postmarks is a duo with saxophonist Boris Hauf and pianist D Bayne. Their first album Western Ave was recorded in Chicago (2005) and released as a limited- edition CD on Luminescence Records.
The 100 copies were packaged in unique covers, each a handcrafted collage from 1920s Chicago postcards by T. Kellers of STUDIO TWELVE 3. For National Parks, Hauf and Bayne went to Vienna, Austria to record with guitar-experimentalist Martin Siewert. Musical outlines for the pieces were inspired by U.S. national parks and their representation in iconic posters from the 1930s and 1940s.

Recorded by rlw (RALF L. WECHOWSKY of P16.D4) and srmeixner (Stephen Meixner of CONTRASTATE) between 2010 and 2013. The first emanation of the project came up with two versions of one mutual piece (Sunglasses… by rlw, Wishing… by srm).
The core structural elements of the release can be seen in srm´s meditation on sentiment (old hearts…) and rlw´s text-based pieces (Prach-tjunge, Alle, Definition). More instrumentally based are Gummidorf (srm) and Spaßbremse (rlw).
Beyond this a signment both artists have touched all pieces in various ways, as indicated indirectly by the following pandects & interpolations: RLW (Dec 2010) …Some weeks ago I did a horrible dj-set for a 75th birthday celebration, including Heino and other German schlager cruelties. it was so terrible! maybe I’ll go back to the pieces i used for this event some day.
This stuff is awful enough to make another use of it. SRM (Jan 2011): I have been thinking about your description of German schlager cruelties and how horrible it was and awful enough to do something with. Maybe there is a possible project there?

Trophies: Alessandro Bosetti , Tony Buck, Kenta Nagai "You Wait to Publish" is the third release of the powerful voice and electronics, fretless guitar, drums trio led by Italian (via Berlin) speech musician Alessandro Bosetti with Tony Buck (The Necks) from Australia and Japanese, based in the USA, Kenta Nagai (Shelley Hirsch, Tatsuya Nakatani). This album sticks to the band's original core approach based on obsessively repeated speech-melodies, while it opens up to a wide spectrum of post jazz, post pop, post minimalist solutions and colors, enhanced by Hilary Jeffrey (Zeitkratzer, C.Christer Hennix) on trombone and Els Vandeweyer (Fred Van Hove, Ken Vandermark) on vibes on several tracks. References range from Henry Threadgill''s Zooid to the early Talking Heads, via Scott Walker and Red Crayola, ultimately summing up to an absolutely unique sound. As in the previous Bosetti's Monotype releases Royals it features the artwork of the German artist Kati Heck on the cover.
