breath and body - a mediadogs ed-et compilation
At long last, after more than a year since dropping teasers, mediadogs has released the third album in its compilation series.
breath and body - a mediadogs ed-et compilation brings together an assortment of artists from more than twenty years of producing innovative electronic music under the mediadogs banner, and rarities from even earlier. But note! Most of this album is never before released and much of it entirely new.
The collection features original tracks from artists such as Hanging Garden, the System Overlords and Shortwave 26.9m and remixes of artists including Aquiline and Loren Kellie. It's available on Bandcamp and the usual download and streaming services.
Gordon Harvey - Unbecoming
Gordon Harvey leaves his usual haunts (Aquiline, Stellia) for this solo album. With the help of the wonderful Invictus Quartet, he combines strings, piano and electronic treatments for a unique and beautiful slant on neoclassical music. While serving their traditional roles of providing rhythm, melody and harmony, the acoustic instruments provide the source for the treatments, turning the electronics into their own instrument - no synthesisers or samplers are used.
