Altera Orbe features new artist: Vauxia Errante

We're happy to present a new signing artist in our label, Vauxia Errante, which will release a truly awesome album named Cambrian Spirits: a dark and deep subterranean-ambient full of evolving drones, complex textures and ritualistic flavours.

Vauxia ErranteMostly based on drone and dark-ambient genres, his creative process combines electronic music, voices and field recordings in a deconstructive research and development. Darkness, cavernous and underground are words that usually comes to mind after listening to Vauxia Errante textures and sonic experiments.

Strongly influenced by the music of Oöphoi, Mathias Grassow, Thommas Köner, Vidna Obmana, Steve Roach, Jeff Greinke, Alio Die, Viridian Sun, Lustmord, Zeit, Yen Pox, Nimh, Nik Parkin, Aglaia, Kenneth Newby and a lot more.

His first music project, Cambrian Spirits, was developed with the support of his long time friend Ran Kirlian who features in some of the tracks of this album playing synths, flutes and tribal grooves.

Bruno Sanfilippo - Piano Textures 3

We have a very special item for you today, the awesome album Piano Textures 3 from Bruno Sanfilippo a follow up of his piano based series. In words of John Koch-Northrup, a great Bruno's fan, this album can be described as "a lyrical and beautiful work." [..] "The piano is truly an extension of him, his feelings, his thoughts. He's not "trying" to convey feeling, the feeling flows naturally from Bruno to the listener. Nothing is forced, all is where it should be."

Piano Textures 3 is now available at Altera Orbe in FLAC and MP3 digital download formats.

Altera Orbe features new artist: Joxan Ruiz

Joxan Ruiz is an independent musician, born in San Sebastián (Spain, 1969). His music is based on synthesizers, guitars, aerophones and field recordings. His music is made from the breath, trying to paint a landscape of colors and textures, pointing to the essence of the vibration. He uses to mix sounds of native and exotic flutes with ethereal drones and loops, searching the mystery of sunlight through a soap bubble.

The combination of atmospheres and tribal ambient music marks the core of his recordings, sometimes playing flutes in the forest and picking up the essence and texture of each sound wave. This means that improvisation is developed to build work lines for his compositions, creating and combining different sound sources.


Influences: Carlos Nakai, Jorge Reyes, Coyote Oldman, Harold Budd, Robert Fripp, Pablo Salcedo, Michael Stearns, Steve Roach, Jonn Serrie.

His featuring in Altera Orbe starts with an excellent album named Gaze, a more than welcomed incursion into ambient genres that was mixed by Ran Kirlian at The Blue_Room and mastered by Max Corbacho in 2012. [More info]
