Unshackling music from a 200 year old ball and chain. A diverse mix of microtonal music from 17 artists across the world.
Xenharmonic bass with weird time signatures
Imagine a weird Mad Professor tune, but with all the analog grit and dirt of a vintage King Tubby mix. Add xenharmonic herbs & spices et voila!
Quirky infectious hooks, fields of distortion, ambient soundscapes, and chamber music textures rub shoulders in an adventure with some surprising turns.
A record where enchanting, mysterious moods collide with frenetic and intense rhythm.
Complex tapestries of harmony and melody that are truly xenharmonic. An electronic gruel of stuttering glitch, melodic electronica, expansive post-rock, and thumping techno.
An album of deeply atmospheric and melodic electronic music by Carlo Serafini.
Alternate-universe harmonies and big scatterbrained beats. Sevish’s last compositions in London; it is a ‘good bye, see you again soon’ release.
Danceable J-Pop and house music that sounds like an explosion of colours.
Various Artists – When you crack your pitches up smaller and smaller, you find many more musical options to compose with.
In reggae the harmonies are always a bit like red, gold and green, very pure colors and basic harmonies. But if you change the harmonies in a microtonal way it might be like using terracotta red, khaki yellow and emerald green instead.
Look beyond Western tonality to find the new moods you can make with alternative tunings – microtones. Different styles of electronic music, beautiful atmospheres and beats.
