Noscalumis (dronecore duo) first release!

Jun 22, 2014

This post is severely back posted and has actually been written in June 2018, it is done so to keep the posts in chronological order.

Noscalumis proudly presents its first release!

elevage is the result of one week of experiments, one part crafting and building our own instruments, one part rehearsing/improvising and recording some of it. We have kept it unpolished with all the raw blunders of live music. It is mostly Nosca and I improvising noisy soundscapes, him playing saxophone through a lot of effects (see below for his DIY spring reverb) and me at the drums augmented with vibrating motors.

It was super fun and closely related to the birth of “xulepth” as an idea (read xulepth as an anagram of luth and exp, respectively lutherie and exp√©rimentale) and eventually led to purchasing the domain xulepth.fr.

What to expect, based on the tags: experimental arduino computer music distortion drone dronecore drums electronic improvisation lo-fi noise pure data saxophone spring reverb usine

elevage is a free download on Bandcamp, click “download” to be taken to the download page directly!

Here is all I could gather 4 years later about this session:
