Panic Structures: An Auditory Analysis of Panic, Anxiety, And The World Inside

[Final cover art subject to change]

Argali Records Netlabel (https://argalirecordsnetlabel.bandcamp.com/) is now accepting music for this compilation. In today’s turbulent times, each individual is assailed with an almost unbearable number of psychic torments. Thus, we are seeking submissions that either provide an analysis of panic/anxiety AND/OR auditory techniques to provide comfort. No genre restriction (although Argali is mainly an experimental electronica/ambient label, given the previous releases) and we WILL accept ‘harsh noise wall’ in this collection (usually Argali does not, due to the abundance of noise-focused netlabels already out there).

Deadline for submissions is tentatively set for MAY 31st.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

I. Tracks submitted need to be exclusive to this compilation.
NO remixes or tracks released previously on other compilations.
II. Audio files need to conform to Bandcamp uploading standards. WAV/FLAC only.
III. ONE submission per band/musician please.
IV. Tracks should ideally be between one to ten minutes in length (if it’s a little bit longer than that, that should be OK too).
V. Please include your project name and website/Bandcamp with your submission email.
VI. Be sure music file is titled in “Band name – track name” format.
VII. Please use WeTransfer or similar services to email submissions to: argalirecordsnetlabel@nym.hush.com

Now Accepting Submissions For The “Saudade : Waves Of Nostalgia” experimental music compilation!

SAUDADE: THE WAVES OF NOSTALGIA

“Saudade is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return. A stronger form of saudade might be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing, moved away, separated, or died.”

“Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (e.g., one’s children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (e.g., places, things one used to do in childhood, or other activities performed in the past) that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings altogether, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.”

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saudade)

Argali Records Netlabel (https://argalirecordsnetlabel.bandcamp.com/) is now accepting music for this compilation. The main goal is that we wish to receive music reminiscent of saudade. This emotion is complex and multi-faceted, yet we live in harrowing and sobering times, where the feeling of saudade is not far from the minds of many individuals. Thus, we are looking forward to your interpretation of saudade…

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

I. Tracks submitted need to be exclusive to this compilation.
No remixes or previously released work, PLEASE.
II. Audio files need to conform to Bandcamp uploading standards. WAV/FLAC only.
III. ONE submission per band/musician please.

The deadline for submitting tracks is AUGUST 13. The release date is currently being determined (this will partially depend on how many tracks we ultimately receive). Also, while we try to respond to ALL emails within a timely manner, it may take a day or two due to the label being a one man operation.


AS ALWAYS, MANY THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

LINKS HAVE BEEN FIXED.

Argali Records Netlabel Presents:
“ATTENTION K-MART SHOPPERS”
(“Maximum Convenience For The Discerning Listener”)

After careful thought and consideration, this unusual idea is going forward. Argali Records is compiling a collection of tracks featuring experimental music that should include at least one sample (and preferably many) from the “Attention K-Mart Shoppers” ephemeral field recording/music collection that was released on Archive.org a few months ago (the collection can be accessed here: https://archive.org/details/attentionkmartshoppers). While we have no specific genre restrictions, we do ask that there be at least one part of the “Attention…” collection in the composition. This idea originated from discussions regarding the creation of and reaction to this piece by the John Lithium ‘plunderphonics’ side-project (HELPER UNIT). If you wish, check it out here: https://lithiumindustries.bandcamp.com/album/fast-efficient-and-friendly

Submission Guidelines:
-This compilation will be presented and distributed through BandCamp, so their file type restrictions apply: .WAV/.FLAC files, 44.1 KHz.
Composition length should be anywhere from one to ten minutes in length. We can be flexible with how much over ten minutes the track goes, but please make the track longer than a minute.
PLEASE only submit a track that is EXCLUSIVE to this compilation. If you feel that remixing one of your older works with newer material and the “Attention K-Mart Shoppers” material is the way to go, that is perfectly fine, but if you do so, please provide a link to the album that the original track came from so I can link to it in the track description page.
PLEASE clearly label/ tag tracks with the desired artist and track titles. If this is a side-project and you usually go under a different moniker, let me know that to so I can make note of that.
-You can send the track and relevant info to: jlithiumflux@gmail.com. Please use WeTransfer or something similar. i also have a DropBox, though you might have to remind me on how to use it. :3
One track per band/musician, please.

I will be providing graphic design for this release, although if you would like to contribute digital art to this project or to accompany your project, let me know (as long as it fits the theme of the compilation). THE TENTATIVE DEADLINE FOR THIS COMPILATION IS FEBRUARY 29, 2016. The absolute minimum amount of submissions I would like for this compilation is 10, although if I could get 15 – 20 that would be great. If you need a little more time, let me know, but the current goal is to release this compilation early January.

Hopefully that covers everything. I will be checking my emails and messages daily, so if you have any other questions, etc, feel free to ask. Also, if you know anyone who might dig this idea and/or would be interested in contributing, feel free to share etc.

I.V. Martinez (of TOTAL E.T., mutanT.R.I., T.R.I.v.M., and more) returns to Argali Records under a new guise: “exMAn”. Under this pseudonym, Argali is proud to present: “Fogitive (Alien Abducted Drum Machine – The Album)”, and yes, the album is as the album title describes it. Contained within this release are two extended long-form compositions, featuring live drum machine improvisation over the T.R.I.v.M. album “Fog Music 18” (auralfilms.bandcamp.com/album/fog-music-18), featuring seething beds of unsettling atmospheric ambience, obscured alien incantations, and industrialized sub-drones. Twitching and pulsating, this music quickly shifts from form to form as it burrows from the listeners ears into their psyche. Thus, your only choice is to let exMAn abduct you into this strange alien journey. A harrowing journey perhaps, but also one of complex sophistication as well.

If you have been looking for an experimental industrial ambient excursion fueled by intense improvised beats, then your ship has arrived…

Music for the aliens within the fog
This is ARGREC 26.

THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.

mutaHERTZ : Fantastic Planetscapes (ARGREC25)

•October 31, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Just in time for Halloween, Argali Records is proud to release “Fantastic Planetscapes” by mutaHERTZ, which is the collaborative effort of Jack Hertz (jackhertz.com) and I.v.Martinez (trivm.bandcamp.com). Also featuring artwork by surrealist photographer/artist Ivan Vaclavik (www.vaclavik.eu), “Fantastic Planetscapes” is a heavy, spaced-out exploration into the depths of the stars, influenced by the 1973 movie “Fantastic Planet” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantastic_Planet).

Inspired by the film’s soundtrack by Alain Goraguer and sound effects by Jean Guérin, Jack Hertz created a series of analog synth recording for use in collaborative efforts. These elements were then further remixed and processed by I.v.Martinez into the finished result. Thus the listener is thrust into vast and swiftly evolving soundscapes reminiscent of the vistas of unimaginable alien worlds and the strange intelligence that may populate them. An unsettling, yet meditative experience.

The Tapegerm page for the “Fantastic Planetscapes”, featuring further information and the samples utilized in this project, can be found here (tapegerm.com/jack-hertz/projects/9/fantasic-planetscapes). Per the projects stipulation, this album is being released under a Creative Commons license CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 US.

Music for Draags AND Oms.

This is ARGREC25.
This one’s for you.
