Materia Confusa's fourth release on Webbed Hand is a pair of musique concrete compositions built around some intriguingly deep concepts. About: "The title track, Axis Mundi, revolves literally around the idea of its namesake. The sound of a Jacobs Ladder creates the core central rhythm which is yet another incarnation of the theme. An attempt at representing both ascending, and descending, movement around the cosmic axis. The second track, Strange Loop, is patterned after the ideas set...

In the artist credits below we've provided information about the instruments used, and you can see they range from the familiar to the exotic. This compilation is divided into two parts, each with accompanying...

Typically the recordings in this series are minimalistic soundscapes, with motifs played out cyclically and repetitively, rather than progressively, in order to induce hypnotic states. Tribe of Astronauts "Rain 1" is a pleasing wash of white noises, cycling in slow rhythms. Waxing and waning...

Haunted textures of sound are served forth in classic Djinnestan style in this unexpected EP release. Do ghosts relive their dying moments? Do they have unfinished business, or messages for the living? Without explaining the concept of this album, I shall leave you to infer what you can from the track titles and a close listening to these haunted soundscapes. Djinnestan's art consists of heavily processed acoustic, electronic, and sampled sounds, woven into rich sonic textures. Typically these...

Saluki Regicide's first album of soundtracks for weird dreams, these peculiar sonic paintings are less music than opiate science fiction. This is headphone music for playing in the dark, plain and simple. The work of Saluki Regicide is a transmission from one synaesthetic consciousness to another. Simultaneously dark and witty, it engages your mind and leads it to some very strange places. Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release.

Purr is a 76 minute ambient track intended to be played at low volume as background ambience, preferably as you go to sleep. It generates a warm and cozy feeling, like having a cat purring next to your head. With a high fidelity stereo system possessing good bass response, some of the infrasonic qualities will come through, thus adding to the trancey and hypnotic effect of the work. It is my feeling, based on some study of infrasound, that what one hears as a cat's purr is only part of the...

The album Risen consists a pair of long-form works by Mika Björklund, a young Finnish sound artist who has previously released Nocturne [wh054] on Webbed Hand. This is definitely headphones-in-the-dark music -- real introvert listening. These two tracks begin in a similar manner, but soon diverge and express many different moods and textures.

Fans of both ambient and the Fahey-esque primitive sound will appreciate these all-acoustic soundscapes by Kecap Tuyul. This solo album of Kecap Tuyul is his first completely acoustic one. It was mostly improvised and recorded during the last week of the rainy month of April 2012, but some tracks are based on old steel-strings guitar improvisations that were recorded between 2009 and 2010 and were supposed to be used in his band Pura Sombar (until being forgotten, found again and overdubbed...)...
