Anne-James Chaton / Andy Moor / Thurston Moore
"Heretics is a series of portraits of radical heretical figures found throughout the history of schismatic thinking.Heretics like Caravaggio, William Burroughs, Jose Mujica, Marquis de Sade and Johnny Rotten, fascinated the artists. These influential figures are presented here in the form of poetic texts and catchy melodies combined with experimental noise. - With the addition of ex-Sonic Youth guitarist, singer and songwriter Thurston Moore, Anne-James Chaton and Andy Moor’s more than a decade long collaboration becomes an exciting trio. They researched and created the material for Heretics during a residency in the French port of St Nazaire, in July 2014. They used voice, guitars and electronics in solo, duo or trio, to collaboratively explore their ideas and co-write texts and music. -Unsounds"

The Body Imitates the Landscape
Claudio f. Baroni
"The music on this album originates in the interactive sound installation The Body Imitates the Landscape by artist Adi Hollander: she designed a collection of ergonomic objects that are meant to transform music into vibrations felt through the entire body. Hollander was inspired by the Japanese book Karada by Michitaro Tada about the ‘school of the body’. Hollander and Claudio F. Baroni made a live version of the installation where Baroni’s music, performed by Maze, was experienced live by the public. As it was channeled through the objects, the public could at once hear the music in the space and feel it in their bodies."
"Composer and sound recordist Francisco López operates in an area where music and sound merge. With its rich variety of sonorities and its percussive quality, the piano is an ideal instrument for his purposes; and Dutch pianist Reinier van Houdt, with whom López developed the piece, is an ideal performer. -Rene Van Peer"
Untitled #2 (The Mute)
Jessica Sligter & Wilbert Bulsink
"Centering on the idea of voicelessness, The Mute explores a concept that can be investigated acoustically, but that can also be approached in social terms. How can those who have no voice in our society be heard?"
13 Friendly Numbers
"A masterful record which should be investigated by anyone interested in free playing. –Penguin Guide to Jazz"
Experiments With a Leaf
John Butcher & Andy Moor
"The two meet in the middle of the road, so to speak, for this quick half-hour session of maxed-out microtones. It's an excitingly subdued and intense listen, and while it's laudable not to follow the compulsion to load the disc to its 80-minute capacity, the one track that stretches past 10 minutes suggests there's much more ground left for them to cover. -Kurt Gottschalk"
