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

179 / Dollhead – Dollhead

Focused experiments in distortion, noise, mangled sampling and stripped down EDM fundamentals.

Dollhead brings its first full release to Fwonk* mastered and ripped from a specially commissioned limited run of vinyl.

“I became fixated on finding out wither the ‘vinyl sound’ I was hearing was mostly in my head, or if these 12″ EDM singles in record stores owe more of their sound character then you would first assume to their medium (6~7 minutes of audio stretched across an entire 12″ record). Hearing the results, for me, confirmed that vinyl does make a feasable difference”
