A reissue of a record released in 1976 by Pat Matshikiza, a key figure in the South African jazz scene.Below is an explanation by the label. "Born in 1938 in Queenstown, Eastern Cape, South Africa, Pat Matshikiza grew up in a musical family. His uncle, Todd Matshikiza, was a jazz columnist for drum magazines in the 1950s. Pat was educated at St. Matthews, a historic mission school in Keiskamahawk, where he played the organ. Performing and graduating with a teaching diploma, he moved to Johannesburg in 1958 and joined a community of professional black musicians centered around Dokei House, the headquarters of the Union Artists and African Music and Drama Society. Here, Pat Matshikiza joined the Jazz Dazzlers, a big band led by esteemed saxophonist Mackay Davache, as pianist, and later played with the Malombo Jazz Man at the Castle Lager Jazz Festival in 1962. He was part of the winning group, the Early Mabuza Quartet, including Pat Matshikiza, who recorded for the As-Shams/The Sun label in the 1964s, and Tshona, a 1970 collaboration album with sax giant Kippy Moeketsi! The album was followed by Pat's solo debut Sikiza Matshikza, featuring Moeketsi as a featured artist, in 1975. The members of this album were from the early days of the group that would become Spirits Rejoice in 1976. With Duke Makashi on tenor sax, George Taifmani on trumpet, Sifo Gumede on bass, Gilbert Matthews on drums, and Sandile Shange on guitar (pictured alongside Pat Matshikiza in the album cover photo). In the 1977s, Pat Matshikiza retired from the jazz scene in order to earn a more steady income as a resident pianist on the hotel circuit, but revived his jazz career in the 1980s, playing clubs and gigs in Johannesburg. Album "Originals" (2000) and retrospective album "Seasons,...

A record released by Canadian ambient writer Michael Scott Dawson in April 2022 from Toronto's all-genre label We Are Busy Bodies, limited to 4 copies.Contains 300 songs with gentle ambient and ambient drones by electric guitar, piano, and field recordings. Comes with DL code.It's a white board.Below is an explanation by the label. "This album consists of 12 ambient pieces for guitar. It follows 12's debut Nowhere, Middle Of and is built around generative synths. The same thing. I don't want to repeat myself, Dawson completely abandons the synthesizer as the main instrument on Music For Listening, and as a result the guitar songs lean heavily towards tape loops and manipulations, accompanied by field recordings and understated piano elements. The music sits at the intersection of composition, improvisation and chance, with patiently simple melodies that emerge and repeat like mantras throughout the album.Dawson's inspiration came from a phone call with his 2020-year-old grandmother. His grandmother told him of his observations of birds outside the window, as Dawson had done since he was a child. It made me want to dig up what I had recorded over the summer, and these fragments were originally going to be part of an album of Prairie Bird Songs. We roamed pastures and farmlands and recorded audio—a true field recording—but Dawson abandoned the project because of the hissing and crackling sounds of mosquitoes and insects swarming the microphone. But listening back many years after that call, he was struck by the similarity of these recordings to the music he would compose. While the recording was playing, he wanted to pick up his guitar and play, and in that moment Dawson let go of the album he had been immersed in.

A reissued 2023-disc set limited to 6 copies by Kristen Roos, an IDM writer from Vancouver, Canada, released in June 500 from Toronto's Toronto all-genre label We Are Busy Bodies. (Original cassette release in 2) Contains 2021 post-new age ambient-IDM songs produced using only 80's MIDI software. Comes with DL code.Below is a commentary by Hothan Sounds, who released the original. "Hotham Sound presents the long-awaited second volume in Kristen Roos' 'Universal Synthesizer Interface' series exploring the audio of early algorithmic MIDI sequencing programs for personal computers. In Vol.6 we introduced various vintage programs, but in Vol.2 Roos narrows down his personal favorites to two."Music Mouse" by Laurie Spiegel and "Diablo" by Franck Bardet.One of the first "intelligent musical instruments" made for personal computers, Spiegel's "Music Mouse" was, for many in the 1s, a surprisingly intuitive entry into the world of MIDI sequencing. bottom.Mouse position controls the placement and parameters of MIDI data, allowing users to quickly select and change scales, chord voicings and volumes of their compositions on the fly.The keyboard is used as a control panel, and a digital "cheat sheet" provided with the software outlines various shortcuts.Although the program can only output four MIDI notes (which can then be arranged into short musical phrases or loops), this constraint hides an enormous capacity for creating musical variation and complexity. It is Roos plays the software with a light touch, striking a delicate balance between playfulness and precision.Franck Bardet's "Diablo" can literally "draw" MIDI data into a window much like early digital paint programs like MacPaint.Users can record data in loops, change note parameters (tonality, length, velocity, tempo, etc.), capture "snapshots" of their settings, and click in real-time.The program is limited to three loops at a time, but like the Music Mouse, that limit hides a surprisingly powerful tool for musical expression. In Roos' hands, repeating loops overlap and intertwine like patterns on a digital loom, slowly forming into a gigantic sonic tapestry. " Label and other works here ///...
