  • bastian void / kyle landstra – split – lilerne tapes

    out of stock

    It’d be hard for me to pick a better combo of rippers to wind down 2015 with than the two on this tape. Joseph Bastardo’s Bastian Void project has been blowing me away for quite some time, and these new compositions are some of my favorites to date. His contribution to the split is an energetic and immersive world of hypnotic synth lines and beautifully arranged rhythms. It’s rare to hear music that is as transcendent as it is present and demanding of one’s attention. Real otherworldly areas—the perfect exercise playlist for a workout in space or some true headphone therapy. Landstra’s ability to be a prolific performer and recorder without sacrificing quality or emotional impact is what’s drawn me to his work. His side is the perfect comedown after the flight. Warm melodies and pulsating layers of synthesizer come and go, meeting together and dissipating, creating a satisfying sense of cathartic movement. Truly human and emotional work translated through electronics. This tape is a knockout! Edition of 75 homedubbed Type II/Chrome cassettes. Artwork and printing by Joseph Bastardo.

    Enter into a lucid passage of dreams – presented here with improvised, temperate tones by synthesist Kyle Landstra (Chicago, IL).

    This piece was to match the mood and tone of Nathan’s work in a loosely spun journey through the breath of a dream. This cassette is the entirety of the track that is split between two sides which totals approximately 60 minutes.

    Monumental, enraptured synthesizer drone pours from the hands of this young Midwestern healer. With simple tools Landstra pulls celestial chorales from background consciousness into presentness. Realized in the moment–both live and in solo reflection–these sessions of personal exploration are as devotional as they are elegiac, joyful as they are solemn. Composition through active meditation.

  • kyle landstra / subtle body – split – tranquility tapes

    out of stock

    On this split, two Juno warriors operating on elevated levels offer meditative synth passages to help align your Chakras. Kalamazoo’s Kyle Landstra starts off with deep, steady drones that aim straight for the mind’s furthest reaches. His sidelong piece drones mightily and shifts subtly, with each slight filter tweak and affectation breathing new life into the proceedings. Subtle Body, aka Asheville’s Joe Moresi, answers with three airy and contemplative passages that are a perfect melodic counterpoint to Landstra’s burrowing drones. At once sad and uplifting, each piece can be heard as an acknowledgement of the inevitable reality of death while celebrating the complex beauty of the life that came before it. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle.
