Beyond Boundaries is a 10-track playlist aiming to feature 10 “out-of-the-box”, outstanding gems! Not exactly unclassified, but certainly unique and uncommon.
“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
(drum n’ bass)
Quick pitch: Hyper-energetic, “dopamine” drum n’ bass banger by Caster on New Dawn Collective!
K. L. Fortson
(instrumental, neoclassical, acousmatic orchestral)
Quick pitch: Written to explore the sonic capabilities of a modified string quartet with just one member of each of the string family (violin, viola, cello, double bass), and guitar
(experimental, jazz, avant-garde)
Quick pitch: A few minute introduction to Venus by Day, a 2-hour play during which Raphael Vanoli is accompanied by 22 musicians from the new jazz and experimental scene.
(downtempo, spoken word, experimental)
Quick pitch: An experimental, downtempo track from a distant planetary system… Outer!
(post-jazz, experimental, noise)
Quick pitch: The future of jazz? All we may tell, is that Senn delivers a post-jazz (“post-everything” if you prefer!) wild masterpiece for sharp ears…
(post rock, kraut)
Quick pitch: A fine amagalm of post rock with kraut by Freiburg’s ea collective…
(neoclassical, psybient, cinematic)
Quick pitch: “Chandra” is a gorgeous album track from NOUS III which evolves to feature and explore the symphonic, orchestral sounds of the sting section, punctuated by xylophone.
(experimental, glitch, idm)
Quick pitch: Made with ableton. No presets. A lot of soul in this experimental, glitch treasure…
Quick pitch: Shall we dance? South Koren prodigy strikes back!
(math rock, instrumental)
Quick pitch: Mixed by Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), and sounds like Hendrix playing over The Fall with Sonic Youth joining in halfway through
