Ecouter les étoiles with music by Shoen

 Ecouter les étoiles

Shoen

 

This podcast is the result of two weeks in the Aubrac and Carladez regions of the Aveyron region, questioning the sky. We met many people while walking the streets of Laguiole: inhabitants, tourists, professionals, young and old. The association Ciel En Carladez opened the doors of its observatory in Frons to observe the sky, and it is with all these encounters that we created Ecouter Les Etoiles: a podcast to dream about the stars, to wonder about the sky, and to marvel at our Universe.

‘First aid for Ukraine’ V/A Compilation by Guerrilla Bizarre

In these confusing times of pain, fear, sadness and anger, Guerrilla Bizarre wanted to do their part in alleviating the sorrow felt by the people in Ukraine.

They reached out to their favourite artists in the underground scene to ask for contribution and tried to put together a meaningful effort to help with the situation.

“First Aid for Ukraine” is the result of this massive teamwork. You can get these 60+ tracks at the accessible price of 8 euros, or donate more if you have the possibility.

Of the money you pay, a small amount (around 15%) will be unavoidably withheld by Bandcamp; the rest will go entirely to the International Committee of the Red Cross, with weekly donations every Friday. Please check their social media pages to see how much they’ll be donating every week.

The Red Cross has been operating in the country since 2014 and is currently supporting relief operations in Ukraine’s warzones. Their cooperation with the local Red Cross Society is instrumental in lessening the pain caused by the invasion: they provide first aid on the field, help with evacuations and distribute essentials such as food, warm clothes, medicines and hygiene items; they train civilians for emergency situations and help in contacting relatives in other parts of the country.

This should have been a simple VA compilation, but now looks more like a mega pack because of the overwhelming response that they received. A mega pack of underground electronic music. Free, not bound by style or genre, and yet recognizably à la Guerilla Bizarre: you’ll come across minimal techno soundscapes, ambient experiments, spacy house grooves, razor-edged breaks and much more. But perhaps the most impressive contribution comes from Koloniari, who was able to send them his track “Control” from Kyiv, where he resides, despite the current situation.

What the world has witnessed in the last few days made us feel powerless. Spectators of a world that is violently unraveling in front of our eyes. But the truth is that, even if reality is indeed dire, we can find the strength to help out. We hope that this nightmare can end soon, please help in doing our part.

New track Thelxinoé by Shōen

Shōen — Thelxinoé

 

To sit in space, to be in peace and drift outside of time, is the gift of sonic music experience. Like opening up a book of sounds, Shõen narrates a story that is just as much about wonder and expansion, as it is fragility and introspection. Captured by its feeling of freedom and subtle qualities, once the door to the boundless world of ambient opened up to him he began to look for ways in which sound can be used to uplift and revitalise the mind and body.

Dimensions of emotion blossom open like the first flower of Spring – engulfed by the constant processes of death, rebirth, resistance, and yielding, it flows together like a verdant tonic for the soul. Bearing witness to the sequences of passages, they open and close like distant passing scenes. The sky turns blue and purple, the quiet moon folds into itself on the face of the lake, and unknown constellations above watch down with a knowing light.

Eternal Poet VA – Shōen

"Eternal Poet VA"
[MBR002]

The new V.A. on Misbits Recordings, suitably titled “Eternal Poet,” is the label’s second excursion through the sound-art and experimental ambient realms. Familiar guests Boris Hagenbart and David Moss return for another otherworldly sonic transmission of visceral, syncopated samples, followed by Japanese duo Ohanami in an emotionally charged post-jazz exercise drenched in peaceful nostalgia. The flip-side features ten locked-grooves signed by Ohanami, Shoen, Shcaa, Smooth Operators, and REV, capturing diverse musical moments with transformative potential. The artwork is yet another puzzle piece of this utopian, peculiar ecosystem envisioned by Glitch Shop.

“Second excursion through the sound-art and experimental ambient realms. “

 

“Eternal Poet” further expands the vision that ambient music can be a mode of transport rather than a simple backdrop — a sophisticated world of endless possibilities.”

La Messe with Shōen 荘園

La Messe – Shōen 荘園” 

Using calm and dancing rhythms, the artist has concocted an experimental and cosmic mix.
To listen like an interior journey, close your eyes and let yourself be carried away.

Shōen 荘 園 is the unification of the universe of Samuel. Through the study of hypnotherapy, Samuel found that we could immerse the listener in a changed state of mind through music.

So he uses that to deliver the best possible energy at the right time for the audience.
If one has always been inspired by nebulous sounds, ambient and chaotic borders, the other is found at the origin of the house and minimal while being close to sometimes melancholy and poetic music.


His hybrid music moves away from the techno atmosphere to reach an enchanting universe that awakens the imagination.

Dear Listeners,

This album was created as a reflection of my dreams. It was produced in one week, spontaneously, using only my modular system and the organelle. The music you hear in dreams is often very hard to remember, but through a lot of meditation, I found a way to translate it. A few years ago I made the choice to live by the sea, where I can sustain myself and get inspiration from the birds, the fishes, and kinky little crabs. That’s exactly what I tried to convey in this album: my own little world. They say inspiration comes from your quality of life, and I believe in this deeply! That’s why I’d like to thank all the people who directly or indirectly helped me in my artistic and human development.

First of all, to my own blood: I’m really grateful to have my mum, dad and my sister’s daily and unconditional support.

I’d like to thank Bruno and Pluie/Noir, for allowing me to express myself on this beautiful project, and for believing in me. A big thank you to my friends: to Louise, who gave me a lot of inspiration and without whom this album wouldn’t be the same. To Întuneric, the Piñata Radio team, Nathalia, Kompo, Sabri, Paul, Johnny, Emmanuelle & Sammy, Pazu & all the friends that I missed here (you know who you are): Thank you for your continuous support and all the inspiration you provided me during this process. And finally, a huge thanks to Alexis, without you I wouldn’t have started to make my own music. Love you man.

Shout out to the universe for giving me this chance, and let’s all meet up in the astral dimension!
