Updates galore…

Holy shit. It´s been a long time. I even forgot to write about the latest release here. And actually its one i´m very proud of.

July 2015 saw the release of DESCENT INTO THE VOIDs latest album. A concept album about the post-apocalyptic world. Inspired by Cormac McCarthy´s novel “The Road” it offers a bleak view into a barren, dead world. Harsh drone, encompassing frequencies, noise. Get “post apocalypsis” here for free:

 

 

 

And then there is still KUNDAR. I found some tracks that did not fit onto the release that was planned to happen in 2013. Which, by the way is still shelved right now. But i guess i will self-release it one day or another.And I am going to spill the beans: There was a reinterpretation of KUNDARs first album “After Suicide” planned as bonus for a limited edition. I went back to the original sound files and a made a whole new 56 minutes long track out of it. Even used some recordings that were cut out of the original version.
But back to the unused tracks. These two tracks would make a perfect EP. A release will also happen one day.

And then… today… there was this:

kundar2015

and you can actually listen to a very early version:

… so there is actually a LOT of material (more than 3 hours, much more than the discography up to date) that has been held back by the planned 2013 release. In 2016 some of it will come!

Considering THE NO-TONE PROJECT: hiatus. Main focus is still the post-dronemetal band VIOLET LIGHT AND A HUM.

2013/07 Update

Hello everyone (mainly Mark 🙂 )

 

just a short update on what is going on:

 

The No-Tone Project:

I postponed the latest release indefinitely. Right now i am not even sure if it will get released in any way at all.

 

Kundar:

“Personal Apocalypse” is still scheduled to be released at COMA SECTION, including limited editions that feature a reimagination of the first album “After Suicide”

 

Descent Into The Void:

“Dark Day” is still quite fresh and so far made the least impact of any album i made so far. I plan to record some more stuff soon (noise/drone). 3 tracks are already done.

 

Violet Light And A Hum:

This is the new project i am involved in with another guy. We finished recording our first full length, just some minor tweaks and adjustments need to be done before we can look for a label or release it ourselves. The style ranges from drone, noise, ambient to hints of post-rock and doom metal. If you want to stay updated connect with our facebook page.

Release: Descent Into The Void – A Short Story About The End Of The World

Posted in DITV with tags on November 3, 2012 by notoneambient

Here is the new guitar drone, ambient album by “Descent Into the Void”. 41  minutes of looped guitar drones creating darkness. More reminiscent of the first, s/t album.

Free downloads available. Please spread the word, will be very very much appreciated.

 

 

Coming up for DITV is again a change in style… much more noise.

Current status

KUNDAR:

The next album “Personal Apocalypse” is still scheduled to be released. As a bonus for the special edition i sat down and revisited KUNDARs first album “After Suicide” and made a new, 55minutes long, track out of it. Even with some unused recordings from the first album. Additionally there is even more stuff in the pipeline, but don´t expect that soon.

 

DESCENT INTO THE VOID:

What I am working on right now: A new DITV full length that combines new and old DITV.  2/3 done already. For the release i am thinking about something unconventional…

 

The No-Tone Project:

Still on a hiatus, but i want to release a “alternative and unreleased” compilation one day. Additionally – when playing around with new instruments/toys, i laid the foundation for 2 or 3 TNTP tracks.

 

NEW:

When playing around with another guitar player, we came up with some tunes that i further manipulated. We will figure out how to go on and finally release this stuff, but you can hear a version of it here:

 

 

 

“Descent Into The Void – Footsteps…” track by track

Posted in DITV on July 5, 2012 by notoneambient

The new album by “Descent Into The Void” is released. “Footsteps In An Empty House” is available as free download or “pay what you like” on bandcamp.

There are also “videos” up on youtube with all the tracks so that they can be streamed there as well. Or use your favourite youtube downloader if you dislike bandcamp.

Now i thought i could do something different and tell little stories about the tracks one by one. I don´t want to kill the magic but i thought it might give some insight into the production of this CD.

 

1. The Undying

This is the oldest track on the CD. The basic drone of this track was planned as the first track of DITVs album II ( First recordings started in october 2009). It can still be heard as one of the bonus tracks on bandcamp. These drones were then later spiced up with additional distorted guitar layers played by the persons who is often involved in the voice recordings for KUNDAR –> This track actually features the first guest musician for DITV.

 

2. What Becomes Of People

This was planned as the second movement of II. “The Undying” was supposed to flow directly into this track.  The dark brooding sound is only made by guitar and dozens of effects and post-processing.

 

3. Footsteps In An Empty House

This track features unmodified layers of guitar, so there was no post-processing in any way. The album changes quite dramatically from the old brooding sound to this new DITV sound from this track on.

 

4. Never Ever

Parts of this track were originally recorded during the “Cancer” sessions. Lots of e-bow noise was added as the final touch. The power of post-processing can be heard in the second bonus track on bandcamp, where the only difference another kind of post-processing (and the lack of e-bow) is.

 

5. Transition

Transition was supposed to be the center piece of this album showing the two different sides of DITV in one song. In the end i wasn´t 100% pleased and changed the whole structure of the album because of it. Nevertheless this may still show the path DITV will tread in the future.
