Schemawound is the brain child of J. Siemasko and employs a variety of electronic genres. Ranging from ambient, glitch and IDM to noise and industrial, his works has broken the genre rules. They stand alone as being completely unique, impossible to categorize. This has given him the freedom to expand his sonic horizons with every new release. Being confined to the strict criteria of a specific can often be a creative hellhole where you end up creating the same songs over and over again. Schemawound’s newest release They Want to Make Your Body Move. I Want to Hold You Perfectly Still breaks free from the musical canon, fusing genres together while simultaneously inventing new definitions for what we perceive to be music.

Grains of synthesis sprinkle on the ceramic counter as a lightly jarring ambiance pulsates through a fuzzy television screen in a beige waiting room. Meticulous drones crawl across the hospital floor. A completely clean and sanitized noise slithers through the air vents, wafting into the nearby surgical suites. The room becomes a foggy chamber, encasing you in fragments of sound ricocheting back and forth. Subterranean vibrations and high-pitched chimes descend from above like a flying saucer coming to take away our dead. The whole experience plays trick with your mind as time, perception and intonation morph into something new and frightening.

The songs fluidly blend into each other, seamlessly bound together by an intricate stream of ligaments and tendons. You don’t know where to begin or end; you simply continue. Life goes on and as one thing ends you drift into the next one without even realizing. The concise rigidity to this album is due to the fact that it was composed entirely from code on a computer program. The technical aspects are awe-inspiring. Such fastidious generation takes hours of precise calculation and detailed analysis. The end result is an avantgarde robotic composition that is devoid of emotion.

There is very little human expression; it all sounds so cold. The bleak empty cavity is instead filled with a revealing creativity. Siemasko has shown us the computer’s soul without its heart. It’s a very stark display. The entire ensemble has a very otherworldly quality making it strange and intriguing. The computer, though artificially powered, is still a living being. It’s thoughts might be programmed but it still has spiritual vibrations. This is a glimpse at the capabilities of metaphysical computer music. Deeper exploration will reveal entire new dimensions of music and sound to our senses.

[ Body Movements ]. Schemawound returns to Waxen Wings with Body Movements, a collection of not mere remixes, but complete reinventions based on his most recent album They Want to Make Your Body Move. I Want to Hold You Perfectly Still. To start this project off, he offered both his original scripts written in Supercollider, as well as the raw audio from every track on the album and began an open call for submissions. What he received in return were some masterfully crafted mixes that treated the given materials more as source material than anything, many of them drawing from many, or even all of the tracks in some form or another to sculpt their works.

The end result is 80 minutes and 15 completely reimagined tracks by Lackthrow, Clayton Alpha, Katie Gately, The Icarus Descent, Bassling, Nicholas Starke and Andiluvian. This record walks directly outside the boundaries of the traditional remix album, then keeps on walking. It is a ‘pay what you want’ download (with zero being an acceptable price) available via [ ].

Now if you think you've heard it all when it comes to IDM / Glitch wait till you hear [ They Want To Make Your Body Move. I Want To Hold You Perfectly Still ]. I got to warn you though, it's super dark, super glitch(y) and super weird but all in a GOOD way. BEST is to start from the latest release to the oldest. If IDM is your scene you'll definitely dig this project on the 1st listen itself but if you not in to the whole glitch / IDM tunes then it might take a couple of listens before you get in to it. THE SOUND IS ALL GOOD.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”


Dream within a Dream by Marva Von Theo

Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.
