Faux Pas Quartet weekly Soundcloud Post

“Yestergone” from 03-2013


Faux Pas Quartet – new music weekly

This week, Faux Pas Quartet began posting a new piece of music each week on Soundcloud. We figured with over 400 hours of recorded material we might as well start getting it out into the world. None of the music being posted has been released so it’s all fresh. The music will only be up for a week so give it a listen or a download.


New Release: Immeasureable by onewayness & dRachEmUsiK

immeasurable_front_notext

Immeasurable is available as a CD and digital download from:
MCSD Netlabel (mcsdnetlabel.com)
Onomastic Records (onomastic.org)


Immeasurable is the second full-length collaboration from onewayness (Adam Holquist / Erie, PA) and dRachEmUsiK (Charles Shriner / Indianapolis, IN), following 2012’s critically acclaimed The Sound of Thunder, which Star’s End Ambient Radio named as one of their Significant Releases of 2013.

Immeasurable is a long-form piece in four movements, based on the brahmavihāras (the “four immeasurables”), a series of four Buddhist virtues and the meditation practices made to cultivate them.  Metta – Loving Kindness, the wish that all sentient beings, without any exception, be happy; Karuna – Compassion, the wish for all sentient beings to be free from suffering; Mudita – Empathetic Joy, the attitude of rejoicing in the happiness and virtues of all sentient beings; Upekkha – Equanimity, the attitude of not distinguishing between friend, enemy or stranger, but regarding every sentient being as equal.

The piece combines deep drones and ambience, percussive and dub elements, and analog warmth from acoustic guitars, bowed strings, vintage electric piano, voice, and shruthi box, to build an ambient, pulsing, sparkling and joyful whole.

The electro-music festival is the world’s premiere event for experimental electronic music. Known as the “Woodstock of electronic music,” it features three full days of concerts, seminars, demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions, collaborations, video art, a laptop battle and swap-meet. Electro-music 2013 will be held at the Greenkill Retreat Center in Huguenot, New York, September 6 – 8, 2013. Now in it’s ninth year, we expect this to be the biggest and best electro-music event ever!

The scope of this festival is very broad, covering all aspects of electro-music: experimental electronic music, ambient, space music, circuit bending, computer music, electro-jazz, modular synthesis, musique concrete, improvisation, algorithmic composition, multi-media, visual art and much more. The focus will be on participant involvement, sharing, community development, audience education, and great music.
