The level of variety from previous Nicolas Maeder works is expanded on Chandeti Hoyxkairt Xovia (CHX), his third full album. Compromising mostly of unusual time signatures, abuse of loud-quiet dynamics, and total distortions of artificial and non-artificial sounds, this is a diverse work.

Zilvhoux Kenmyrs announcement:

One word: Minimalism.

Front cover art for Zilvhoux Kenmyrs.

On November 9, 2014, I completed my second studio album, Zilvhoux Kenmyrs, one day after all the writing and recording for it was all done. The album’s development started before August and ended during November. I finished it through the making of a simple digital cover (viewable above this paragraph), modifying a couple fonts (Bodoni Condensed Poster, Small Fonts) and building an easy graph-like sketch/drawing. Zilvhoux Kenmyrs is softer and simpler than my previous musical effort, Acefilou. Qas Records will release the original full edition on November 18, 2014 through Bandcamp and YouTube; a seperate edition exclusively consisting of 2-minute previews from every single track will be uploaded to SoundCloud.

Acefilou is announced! =D

Designed by Nicolas Maeder.

So here is where I’m revealing Acefilou, my first album. It’s not my first release because I did Schwap (an EP) under the “Antdirt” alias over 1 month prior to this announcement.

By spending over a year making this 7-track effort happen, I was comfortable. It was composed almost entirely in Audacity, with me putting in (and subsequently distorting) raw data and manipulating recorded audio of me playing with concrete objects. The recording phase of it ended today (September 18, 2014), and I’m happy! =D

See tracklist below:

  1. 0373
  2. Germanium
  3. ‘rs’n’c
  4. Not Responding
  5. Felty
  6. Won To Free For Vibe
  7. Boron

I will upload the whole album to SoundCloud (where it’s freely downloadable) and YouTube on Tuesday, September 23, 2014.
