Open Call For Works for #ActuallyAutistic Musicians Awareness Compilation

Open Call For Works for #ActuallyAutistic Musicians Awareness Compilation

The twelfth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2019, and this is the same day musician, writer, and activist  mynameisblueskye has chosen to release  “On The Spectrum 2: Red April”a compilation featuring mixed-genre artists who are on the Autistic Spectrum.  The title is a reference to  the often problematic Autism Speaks’ Light It Up Blue campaign, as the majority of autistic people having problems with Autism Speaks (pretty much saying Autism Speaks is low key an autistic hate group that masquerades as a harmless Autism-focused organization.) The artists have chosen to focus on the color red, with the slogan “Light It Up Red”.  We can’t  wait to hear the submissions for this and if it’s anything like the diverse sounds championed on I Heart Noise in the past, (the label slated to co-release the project) it’s sure to be a diverse and eclectic sonic offering. In a time where artists are already exploited within shifting narratives of  global chaos of racism, sexism, transphobia, ableism and other forms of  systemic oppression, artists and activists must often function as double sided advocates for both their own work and their friends and peers  work who might not have the same  set of resources to fight these menacing, and this to be titled compilation is a fantastic step in fighting against this very system. Representation matters. Below is the call for works from the organizer. Please spread this far and wide and contact the organizer with any direct questions, inquiries or submissions!

From the organizer: “we are doing a compilation wrapping around artists who are on the Autism Spectrum. For Autism Acceptance/Awareness Month, me and IHeartNoise decided to put together a compilation to showcase some talent within the spectrum. Are you interested in being a part of it or do you know anyone on the spectrum who might be? If so, is there a song you would like to offer to the compilation? Although, we accept covers, we prefer your material be original. 🙂

If so, please email a song that you wish to contribute to lightningpill@protonmail.com. If you need more information, don’t be hesitate to ask. Also, if you know other artists with Autism that might be interested, please do not hesitate to spread the word,

Addendum: we cannot promise every song will make it, but you will be shouted out when the whole operation is done. Thank you so much not only for reading, but for being interested. 

You can listen to mynameisblueskye ‘s  personal music below!

Stay tuned as this  article will be updated with a link to the compilation once released.

DECAYCAST Reviews: Katatonic Silentio / Tremco / Neurosplit / Oromë (Biodiversità Records, 2018)

a1125535814_10.jpg

This collaboration shifts  honestly between many many different  sonic spaces; in the least contrived blending of  beat oriented synthesis and, well plants.  Riffing off a  theme of the releasing label, Biodiversità Records, Katatonic Silentio / Tremco / Neurosplit / Oromë create a dense, special world of  sonic possibilities in a structurally rhythmic call and response ping pong of tense, delicate, and complicated sonic events.  Oscillating between dissonant beat oriented electronic music which the  artists admit could be  considered “techno” but the  four to the floor mindless speed comedown hooks are  left  by the wayside for a more atonal, arrhythmic, deconstruction of traditional “techno”, “dubstep” or whatever step” you take away from these quaint but pungent sonic exercises.  “Pteris Variata” unduates  between slower, cold, tense pulsing rhythms, occasionally backed by more straightforward  percussive  voices, however the  ambient  swells and  tense array of  noises never  allows this to become too much of  a  unique sound; the tracks and  sections move  swiftly and  articulate their space and move on, nothing forces the listener into a corner relentlessly, rather  creates a dark and interesting space for the listener to crawl into if they choose and explore a lush, dark, cinematic sound.

Background  swells of anciently articulated sawtooth waves  swell and wobble under a filter noose and offer an ambience which the percussion rhythms can dance around without dominating the mix.  Overall the  vibe is minimalist, tense, cinematic, ambient. Clickity, tapping, bass drums drive the  rhythm exercises through a  full workout of  sonic possibilities ending with perhaps the  EP’s strongest track, ” Oromë – Athyrium cantem” which speaks to  early Phaedra era Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlos and  even references current producers such as Cloudland Canyon or Peaking Lights.

Will be  digging more through this  Italian based label’s catalog and seeing what other dark, pulsing treats we can find hiding in the brush.

DECAYCAST #015: BONUSBEAST “I AM THE BLACK GOLD OF THE SUN ’71”

DOWNLOAD I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun ((28:54))

bonusbeast

Entering the upper-atmosphere the black gold burns a racing stripe in a satellite and destroys cellphone reception on an arc across it’s descent line to crash into a secret marine base.  From a lulling corridor some broken record message in a bottle repeats across the radio signals and submariner clicks. A dolphin interrupts the transmission speaking to us from many miles. The oceans marching. Nodding kelp. Wriggling reef dries to a desert canyon.  The sky is freckled with fire and the wolves are working in the mines. Falling through fanged flute tongue stalagmites the hammers  find the punctuations for the growling gold belly lurching the ferris wheel future furnace into translating a pulsar’s speech to a dolphin congress. pulsating light ribbons in the forest undulate with machine birds driving helium balloons past the antigravity vehicle stuck half in a vortex trying to squeegee the clouds with oil repellant.

COUNT LOACHFILLET’S WORM PERIL FOR OTHER GHASTLY TREATS and webbous sonic ARCHIVES…Sorry for the trubbles….

The composition you are listening to is an electronic sandwich of aural preparations. It was recorded in November, 2008 as I geared up to perform at the Composers Decomposed Series in Oakland, California. All sounds were played live to tape, processed through a Frac-Rack unit, with additional electronics, tape loops and auxiliary effects piled on at the Loach Crypt. This recording represents Volume one in the Modular Graveyard Series. An ongoing foray into the world of atmospheric experiments, thought tunnels and mental cleansing by way of the Modular Synthesizer. The original output was distributed to a system of four speakers in cardboard tombstones and one stereo public address system.
