“Magazine on new music and culture”, that’s to be read when visiting Gonzo Circus.com, the website for one of my favourite two-monthly musicmagazines, besides The Wire, supportive regarding all-things Resonance related. In this month’s edition you’ll find articles on Glenn Branca, Felicia Atkinson, Oval/Markus Popp and visual artists such as Bouli Lanners and Manor Grunewald. It’s all about diversity, and all-round quality, in every single domain of the arts-sector, sound or visual.
This month sees a promotion for potential new subscribers : for a measly 5 euros you can subscribe to a trial offer, and get sent two editions to your home. Still reading ? Seriously, you should be making that banktransfer already…

Gonzo Circus writes :” Geotope is de tijdsopname van het ideale moment waarop digitale muzikale vormgeving perfect samengaat met de zoektocht naar verpulverende, pulserende krachten. Dit is Belgisch en absolute wereldklasse! ”
Boomkat writes :” On Geotope, Peter Van Hoesen & Yves De Mey find a subtle blend of their respective aesthetics primed for audiophiles and home listeners, or even adventurous DJ’s. Ranging from finely sculpted tonal investigations, Alva Noto-esque glitch processes, through abstracted sci-fi interzones, and ultra-spacious diffusions, Geotope is a heavy recommendation for fans of Pan Sonic, Kouhei Matsunaga, Rrose and Emptyset. ”
Sendai’s full-length album ‘Geotope‘ is now digitally available through following online distributors :
Starting and curating the Substrata festival in 2011, a three-day intimate event focusing on varying perspectives of scale through the use of sound, composition and visuals, Rafael Anton Irissari, a self-taught composer/musician, based in Seattle, is predominantly associated with minimalist, drone and ambient-music, exploring textural electronics for over half a decade, collaborating with many artists such as Benoit Pouilard (as Orcas - debut album to be released on Morr Music soon), Biosphere, Christian Fennesz, Goldmund and many more.
R.A. Irissari will be playing at the second Icarus Night, Sunday April 1st, at DOK Gent. - Comes highly recommended.]]>
