VeryRecords Announces Alka’s The Colour of Terrible Crystal Album

Thrilled to be working with an absolute legend of an electronic music producer – Vince Clarke – on alka’s 3rd full-length release – Out Friday the 13th this October 2017! From founding Depeche Mode, to Yaz, to Assembly, to Erasure, to his almost countless remix credits… there isn’t much more to say.

The album title was inspired by a quote from Hermetic Library Fellow Peter Lamborn Wilson’s Angel:

“… and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. They move through the firmament which is the colour of a ‘terrible crystal’, and around a throne like sapphire, on which sits Metatron, suffused in the radiance of the rainbow.”

Snotty Molly from Spare Parts and Carbuncles

 

Snotty Molly from Spare Parts and Carbuncles
(Ace of Space/Paul Le Hat)

A previously unreleased track.

Snotty Molly came from a small workshop teaching young people who wanted to make music with their computers but didn’t know where to start. Using the their own laptops and tablets we gathered together enough samples and free software to begin the laying down basic tracks for them to rap and sing over. They were all into happy hardcore or hip-hop. As a guide I had to make my own track along with them, I’d like to think they taught me as much as I did them, especially about the genres they were into. Snotty Molly was a rescue cat my friends had who had an continuous mucus problem.

 

Discontent is unavailable …

One man wave of cinematic electronica from Northumbria. Has so far produced five full length albums.

Whatever it means to Ace of Space it means capturing the moment, just like taking a photograph or snapshot, in musical terms. These eclectic collections so far are a mixture of old school electronica and guitar instrumentals and atmospheric soundtrack work suitable for film, TV or radio.

Light Plays in Fine Boundaries

 

Light Plays in Fine Boundaries
(Wauman)

A weird ambient journey from what knows no beginning and no end … played live with a specific sonic palette.

 

 

Anantakara is a project of Philippe Wauman, from Louvain-la-neuve, Belgium, established in 2010. Anantakara creates live performances, choreography, sound design, meditative & healing music, soundtracks, and studio albums.

Entre grain de folie et grain de beauté, il est question de Tout et de Rien. Et de l’improbable frontière qui en mesure l’incontournable démesure… Anantakara est un projet de musique “intemporaine”. Le nom du projet définit à lui seul l’humble démesure: le réenchantement du monde par l’émerveillement en parcourant inlassablement la quête du point de rencontre des opposés, ce point inattendu qui régénère et accompli.

Balancing between a touch of madness and the caress of beauty, it forms a link between All and Nothing. The improbable frontier of infinity… Anantakara is an ‘in-temporary’ music project. The name Anantakara discloses its modest ambition: to re-enchant the world through wonderment while tirelessly pacing the inmost and outmost in search of the place where opposites meet, that startlingly unpredictable fortuitous point where regeneration and accomplishment are enhanced.

“Anantakara” अनन्तकर [an-ant’a-kara] is a Sanskrit adjective that can be translated as: “rendering endless, magnifying indefinitely, making endless or infinite”. That is, to start with what is somehow already complete, has always been and will be forever. To simultaneously combine the One which becomes Multiple with the Multiple that becomes One, to explore the sphere of influence existing between the diversification of the One and the unification of the Multiple. The spiritualization of matter, the materialization of spirit.
