This is a 2023-disc compilation cassette released in November 11 by the experimental label mappa from Slovakia Lucenec.

Contains strange beats ~ collage ~ ambient by 32 European experimental musicians/groups.

*If you would like a digital sound source, please feel free to contact us.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"When they hear stories about birds, they usually talk about food, family, or anxiety. If they learned the nature of humanity's cruel and exploitative relationship with birds, they would talk about rebellion. The current trajectory is to wipe out one-third of all bird species by the end of this century.

This record crystallizes the boundaries between memory, beauty, and anxiety. At its core, it's a collection of all the birds we've ever encountered and heard, and their songs are synthesized from a blend of memories. Aesthetically, it simulates the characteristics of bird calls, hitting a similar frequency sweet spot. It contains a wide variety of bird voices, from high to low ranges, from solos to groups, from birds standing alone to birds building complex worlds.

This record can be enjoyed on a musical level, but it also takes things a step further and makes us think about reimagining our relationship with the earth and its people. Question our influences and ask why we need synthetic avian music. Is it just a visionary endeavor, or is it because we are failing to foster a world in which organic birds and other creatures can thrive?

The compilation features 32 artists, both new and previously released, including some of our favorite European artists. Their music lasts from dawn to dusk and into the night. For many of the artists, this is their first time participating in mappa, but some have released albums on mappa in the past. "

Map:

"When you listen to birds, they usually talk about food, sex/family, or anxiety. If they knew about the true nature of humanity's cruel and exploitative relationship with birds, they would be discussing rebellion. Humanity's current trajectory about birds is to cause the extinction of one-third of all bird species by the end of this century.

This record crystallises the borders between memory, beauty, and anxiety. At the core is an amalgam of all the birds we have met and heard, their sounds synthesized from a blend of memories. Esthetically it simulates the qualities of bird sounds, hitting similar frequential sweet spots. There is a great variety of birds captured here, from high to low frequencies, from solo voices to groups, from birds standing on their own to complex world-building, where the bird voices are part of an ecosystem, becoming one of the instruments.

You could stop there, enjoying this record on a musical level, but it invites us to do one step further, to consider reconfiguring our relationship with the Earth and its inhabitants. To question our impact, and to ask why we need synthetic bird music. Is it just a visionary endeavor or is it because we are failing at fostering a world in which organic birds and other creatures can thrive?

32 artists from the whole world, including our favorite artists from Eastern Europe, have contributed to this compilation both with new and previously released music. Their music is ordered from dawn to dusk and into the night. For many of the artists it's their first time on mappa, but some have previously released an album with us."
