TERMINAL EVENING #14 | Notable new and reissued music of 2023

The inevitable year-end review of new and reissued recordings from 2023 that stood out a little, or a lot. Usual disclaimers about things unheard or unheard of apply, and there is much else besides that there wasn't space to include in the mix or that didn't arrive in time. With very best wishes for the new year.

A selection of seasonally-appropriate sounds and moods arrived at more or less by free association - people listening in warmer climates can use this as a sort of sonic air-conditioning device. The rest of you, wrap up well.

All of the effects/affects, including, but not limited to, obviously invented languages, rooms to rent upstairs, not-quite-opposites, side effects of neglect and/or poor hygiene, possibly spurious descriptions of 'nature', fleeting glimpses, electrical malfunctions, shadowy goings-on in vague locations, the reality of so-called 'artistic discourse', juxtapositions of objects and events arrived at more or less by chance, and much more along similar and dissimilar lines.

In this episode, similes of social organisation, thoughts on the elusiveness of signifiers, international treaty violations in remote areas, yet more family disputes, literary oddities, mythological osteology, the moments before the disaster, miscellaneous forest and mountain wanderings, memories of nonexistent places, discomforts at high altitude, simultaneous arrivals and departures, and many other phenomena without precise category.

Music/sound/noise/misc by Luc Ferrari, Ákos Rózmann,Beatriz Ferreyra, Werkbund, The Hafler Trio, Mykel Boyd, Dead Voices on Air, Formanex, Francis Dhomont, Lucy Liyou, Nigel Ayers + Robin Storey, Psychic TV, Mark Vernon, Drahomira Song Orchestra, Mlehst, Mieko Suzuki, Bad Sector, Astro + Reiko A., Chie Mukai + Masayoshi Urabe, Aaron Dilloway, Damenaatashi, United Bible Studies, Luboš Fišer, Hélène Breschand, Ana-Maria Avram + Chris Cutler, Dr.P.Li.Khan, Dead Raven Choir, Dans les arbres, Edward Ka-spel, Nightmarish, Le Fruit Vert, Jana Winderen, Lull, Holy Toy, Rohco, Orbit Service, Leo Anibaldi, John Duncan, Kiyoshi Mizutani, Meret Becker.



Assembled from a diverse variety of ingredients, including but not limited to auditory trainspotting, unconventional beachcombing activities, miniscule but potentially traumatic gestures, atmospheric pollution monitoring, civil infrastructure improvements and disimprovements, possibly spurious mental powers, innovative devices for the elderly, premonitions of forthcoming tragic events, half-formed memories of times when the living was probably much easier, ruminations on endings, blatant contradictions, occasional straightforward factual statements and many points in between.

A semi-undifferentiated mass which may or may not include information or disinformation concerning art history, inexplicable acronyms, quotidien activities heard from unnatural angles, acoustic issues in civil engineering, colour theory, obscure seasonal traditions, family disputes about what belongs to whom, obstetrics gone somewhat wrong, invented sciences, codes known and unknown, messages left by persons unknown and the usual non sequiturs.

Bits of reality wobbling at the edges; observations of folk traditions from various real and spurious times and places; transitions into and out of darkness; memories of a more consequential past; imaginary astronomy, geology, geography, ichthyology and other more nebulous sciences; interjections of surprise and other reactions harder to quantify; the accumulation of matter and time; vaguely defined events in nonspecific streets; failures of poorly maintained infrastructure and many other matters hopefully of interest.
