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
Quick pitch: An experimental ‘odyssey’ but at the same time meditative track with crazy synth rhythms and sounds by Amsterdam’s electronic producer Yarck.
Quick pitch: Drawing influence from the 2015 film “The Witch” ‘Thomasin’ is a club tempo dubstep tune, which aims to combine blistering sound design with a danceable feel.
(experimental electronic, neoclassical)
Quick pitch: A jarring, clattering journey through ’a worm hole’, from chaos to order by Husky Rescue founder Marko Nyberg.
(progressive metal, jazz rock, djent)
Quick pitch: A totally unique blend of progressive metal, jazz rock and djent by Antediluvian Projekt, vital for all sound explorers!
(dark ambient, drone)
Quick pitch: A “post-apocalyptic” sonic excursion for the daring ones by Hungarian act Tentacle.
(experimental electronic, improvisation)
Quick pitch: ‘Last Trance For Future Worlds’ pays homage to music from the golden age of Anime, recalling the work of Kenji Kawai (Ghost In The Shell), while the accompanying visuals, improvised as well, are a combo of found-footage VHS gold and video manipulation.
(rap metal, horrorcore)
Quick pitch: “Catalyst Therapy is a song about having to prove yourself and what you stand for, as well as saying “f*ck you” to those who doubted you. If you truly believe in something, maybe it’s what gets you out of bed in the morning and keeps you going all day or it’s simply what you think about basically 24/7 then you go for it. We all must simply do what feels right for ourselves but no matter what you do in life there will be others who try to turn you off that dream. Ironically those “others” tend to be 10 steps behind the dreamers and the action takers like you and I.”
(harsh noise, death metal, experimental)
Quick pitch: An AI reimagination of death metal, harsh noise wall & heavy experimentation, composed and performed by automated machines.
(drone, noise, post rock)
Quick pitch: A 12-minute magnum opus balancing between drone, noise and post rock, and the lead track off of Ambiensce’s debut album, ‘schliessongs’ on Underthink Records.
(harsh noise wall)
Quick pitch: 21,5 minutes are more than enough to test your endurance! From Russia with love!
