Chicago’s Scott Cortez - with hints of Fennesz and learned guidance from the sounds of [ Eno ] and [ Robin Guthrie ] et al - he works with treated guitars to create velveteen drones and blissed ambient spaces, often teetering on the brink of drifting into more secluded, and shadowy spaces but always remaining within view of the light. [ Twin Radiant Flux ] a beautiful processed solo guitar work by Scott Cortez, the instrumentalist of [ Lovesliescrushing ]. This previously unreleased 60 minute work, recorded between 1997 and 1999 shows Cortez's unique pioneering aesthetic. With droning flows and melodic layered sonic drifts, Twin Radiant Flux predates some of the most important guitar driven currents in contemporary electronic music. Scott Cortez, (b.1969) is a textural guitarist and visual artist based in Chicago. Cortez has been making instrumental ambient guitar music for over two decades. He embraces lo-fi minimalist aesthetics by limiting himself to guitars, 4 track cassette recorders, and looping pedals. From these modest tools he combines technique with various processed guitar textures to combines technique with various processed guitar textures to create droning, shimmering, and soundscapes. Cortez explores the textural possibilities of the guitar, creating music that ranges from experimental to post-rock to contemporary. His trademark sound combines guitar playing with digital techniques, using the guitar as a tone generator, processing the signal through various pedals and filters to create dense shimmering tapestries of sound. Cortez's music often incorporates drones and loops, which he crafts into enigmatic sound worlds with very subtle melodies. His work focuses mainly on the tonal possibilities of the guitar, and is usually produced without the aid of a computer.~From the Darla web site. ~~~~~~~ ( And for a sound you definitely don't want to miss.

New album - Arq by Par

Arq is the new album of Par, project by Nacho Adda (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1983) based on experimental electronic music. While his previous works El Futuro (2013) and Ahí viene la Tormenta (2015) were more socially influenced, Arq is strongly marked by the modernist and rational concepts of modern architecture and its theoreticians. In this case, the producer attempts to translate these concepts to sounds and structures in 10 songs that make up the album. Preserving his experimental and minimalist nature, the album creates atmospheres that place the listener in different spaces and environments by using a dense or delicate, but always subtle, electronic sound palette.
