From Musique Machine:

Cloama & Blutleuchtel – From Wasteland Mausoleums
All the work I had heard before by finish artist cloama fitted fairly squarely into the noise genre, so it was a surprise to find this collaboration with other finish artist Blutleuchtel treaded a more gothic cinematic and often creeplydialogue path. Mixing together horror film cinematics, pale and sinister jazz, metallic elements and damned world music vibes. Creepy found sound elements & noise elements appearing just here and there, but the focus is more of on atmospherics and not all out attacks.

Reinhold Friedl – Xenakis (A)live
As the title suggest this is a tribute to Modern Greek classical & electro-acoustic pioneer Iannis Xenakis, with berlin based composer and pianist Reinhold Friedl joined by the avant/noise chamber orchestra zeitkratzer. Thorough you can clear hear Xenakis violent, macabre and otherworldly fingerprints with-in the sound, they manage to breath their own touches and edges into the nearly hour compositions.
