189 / Andrulian – The Girl With The Long Flowing Hair

Andrulian has created something special with The Girl With The Long Flowing Hair. All sound elements were initially forged using the Virtual ANS software synthesiser that analyses images into microtonal sound. All sounds were derived from the one image, by Laura Woermke. This was then tweaked, manipulated and arranged using the Hollyhock II DAW, using granulation, looping, generative rhythms.

The end result is an album that defies categorisation – it is a hugely daring piece of deconstructed sonic art, that incorporates drones, ambient textures and glitches.

188 / Trium Circulorum – For The Sad, The Mad and The Lonely

In a Fwonk* first, this album is available in a strictly limited edition of 25 audio cassettes. 15 are available from our very own Bandcamp page, 10 direct from the artist himself. The cassette has been professionally produced on high quality audio tape, in a green glitter box

180 / Phirnis/Katarrhaktes – A Cage

Presenting two previously unreleased tracks taken from the Sleepers/Apnoea sessions, in which a musical motif is torn in two directions. Phirnis intricately builds strata upon strata of introspective swathes of sound, while Katarrhaktes takes the listener to an uncomfortable landscape of pounding, industrial horror.
