Fm-Ra ‎– Some Kind Of Forest (2011)



  • Experimentalism 
  • Avant-garde
  • Art music 
  • World music 
  • Ethnic music

Comment: it is way too problematic to tag this album of 4 compositions because of involving way too a little and on the other side much unusual and not quite daily sounds. It was recorded at home employing Audacity and the instruments were a kalimba, one rain stick, and a storm imitator with some delay effects. Given that kalimba can be categorized as an instrument in the ethnic music world and its use in the popular music is quite limited the recent outing can be pigeonholed both in the compartments of experimental/avant-garde, and ethnic music. Moreover, one can discern very closeness to the nature as if being played under the sunny (or cloudy – it does not make difference though) sky somewhere nearby the forest. In fact, the title suggests it. The elemental touch can always be welcomed. The result is simple, pure, and even divine. The nature has been a topic for the artist because some days after the release of this issue he issued another similar album Oceans & Waves. The issue is a part of the discography of Rejected Netlabel.

Dadala – It So Happens (2016)



  • Free jazz 
  • Electro-acoustic 
  • Improvised music 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Ambient 
  • Electronic music 
  • Experimentalism

Comment: I guess it happened sometime in the end of the 00s when I first made acquaintance with the music of Dadala it happened probably via lastfm. The last years and last albums by Dadala are related to Pan y Rosas Discos, an imprint from Chicago, Illinois, USA whose intention is to promote improvised and jazz-related music. Because of that description it can be said the virtual combo (or long-distance combo or not in real time recording combo) has found a proper output for their issues. Richard Dunlap has been the propulsive force behind it who has been involved in recording music since the mid-80s. However, it is not absolutely correct to describe the combo as jazz because its music involves so many facets and styles – more profoundly, at It So Happens from electro-acoustic minimal approach, anti-gravitational and spaced-out improvisation snippets and tickling electronic effects to more tumultuous appearances and compelling progressions; it is an album wherein the compartments are not distinctly separated from each other but incessantly searching for having joint points between them. Very right issue indeed. By the way, one month ago the artist issued another album called The Executive Suite under the record label.
