Electroacoustic Chamber Music

Listen to a preview of the forthcoming full-length record from Matmos - "The Marriage of True Minds," which has parapsychology as its theme. This techno chamber music from the now Baltimore-based duo builds grooves out of unusual and startling sound sources, like the processed sound of a tap dancer shuffling on a stone floor, an amplified rubber band, bagpipes, and honky tonk piano, along with vocalists. 


Also, listen to music from French composer and multi-instrumentalist Sylvain Chaveau, along with beautiful and ambient music by K. Leimer, from his record, “Permissions.” There’s also a short work of double and triple-layered pianos from Tim Hecker, a bleak and echo-driven offering from the "Dropped Pianos" EP of sketches and outtakes from Hecker’s 2011 album, "Ravedeath, 1972."  Plus, a long-form meditative and drone work by the band, Crib, actually the work of bass player Devin Sarno. And more.
