Etched Traumas is more than happy to release 'Colony' by Martin Hoogeboom. 'Colony' is a soundscape work based on the sounds of ants.

But this is the only way to get a building that looks like it has been designed by an alien architect.  Recent studies have shown that ants regularly communicate with each other by sound. Most ants have a...

Ten Thirty is a duo project born in 2008 and located in France. Inspired by 20th-century classical composers and by ritual chants, Ten Thirty improvise during live sessions dreamlike soundscapes with industrial sounds, field recordings, samples and synthesizers. Most of these paradoxical and enigmatic ballades are regarded as an "acoustic-mental cinema". ET023 An Etched Traumas release 2012

Etched Traumas is honored to release Paco Rossique's work titled 'Drawing Widows In Black And White'. Rossique introduces us into a world of primordial continua, fragments of concrete music and ambient soundscapes. He structures his work building a rich world of field recordings, live and pre-recorded sounds. Being a highly exploratory and bold work, there is a constant flow of primal energy which leads to the sublime ambient and evolving soundscape of last track and ends with a surprise. ...

This is the second volume of Beatings Broken Guitars series and the second release of Zerogroove for Etched Traumas. Zerogroove's music is a mix of fragments of sounds, silences, and broken rhythms. Above all, he is a guitarist who's in love with rhythm. Zerogroove's technique has been influenced by Arto Lindsay, David Byrne, and Sonic Youth guitar playing. After the initial recording, he structures his work via a process called 'sound-breaking', then he creates rhythm patterns that could be a...

Χυμός Άγιος - may be translated either "Holy Juice" or "Holy Substance", refering in the first interpretation to Orange Juice with LSD of Merry Pranksters, but more likely to the sacral beverage of Proto-Indo-Europeans (sanscr. सोम, avest. haoma, Proto-Indo-Iranian *sauma-).

Something like a deafening noise arose from inside their deepness and leave them out of breath. A primal fire burned out all their shelters. They were by themselves those who got inspired to descend up to the boundaries of their animality, without knowing it. And so on the grey angels trapped inside the oblivion woke up, one by one. Options were simple, to fall even deeper or to take flight with them to become white again. released February 16, 2015  Fernando Laub (aka flaub) is a composer and...

Etched Traumas is more than happy to release Katajamäki's work titled 'Sininen Projekti' . It would be very easy for anyone to expect that this Finnish sonic work is an hommage to icy soundscapes and arctic habitats. Contrary to the stereotype, Katajamäki's sound is a solid work of unusual warmth and serenity with its ethereal and occasional dusky pads. The use of minimal broad electronic and natural elements in 'Sininen Projekti' 'teleports' listeners as if they were 434 light-years from...

The sophomore effort by a duo of old friends is a collaboration as much as it is a split release. It documents a radical departure from the sounds and approaches hitherto associated with Djozr and Lezet, and ventures into dangerously new terrains for both artists. But even despite this, the split feels more like a unified body of work than a mere collection of new songs.  djozr (d͡ʒoʊ.zɹ) is an ambient drone glitch project by Glenn Bryce.  Lezet is an experimental music project from...

Etched Traumas is more than happy to release 'Draft et Draft', the first release of Greek artist Unciviliz.  Unciviliz experiments with noisy sonic blasts and soundbites, low frequencies and vocal samples creating miniaturesque noise works.  'Draft et Draft' is radical, unorthodox but you can discover a humorous side either in its track titles or in its compositions. Make no mistake. This is pure rock'n'roll in its very essence. Fun, guts, heart and mind. You won't find any high-brow theory...

We are honored to release the work titled 'Pair' by prolific Norwegian artist Jan-M. Iversen."Pair" is a two-track drone-piece. The main idea here is to present two sides of the same story. Both pieces are mixed with the same base of samples recorded during an evening in the Bjerga/Iversen-studio.

The controversial nature of electric guitar is under investigation again. Electric guitar comes and goes during the last decades of popular music. It comes/worshiped as a revolutionary instrument and goes/ousted as a reactionary relic of the past in terms of genre. Zerogroove's unique guitar playing technique and voice-overs construct a revolutionary statement. A statement, which explores the past with a view to the here-and-now. At the same time, the artist pays homage to some of his favorite...
