Soloist Anti-Pop Totalization - Synth In Japan

Objetrouvé n°10, SYNTH IN JAPAN, is an invitation to travel within the emerging Japanese synth scene. A unique opportunity to discover the work of two non-standard personalities who each reinterpret and mix up the codes of synth in a very personal way.

Rikinari Hata, aka SOLOIST ANTI POP TOTALIZATION, from Tokyo, plunges his inspiration into a material reminiscent of industrial and experimental music. He builds fantastic electronic machineries, musical space shuttles that rustle with a thousand sound inventions and drag in their trail murmurs of dreaming robots. Based in Kobe, JIN CROMANYON, Hidetaka Horie’s musical double, embodies a sort of whimsical and truculent character who would have jumped out of a video game or anime to take over the dance floor. He creates synthpop gems as opening soundtracks for disquieting futuristic fables.

Slovenska Televiza - Tardes de domingo en Pripyat

What if a group of young people had escaped the evacuation of Pripyat after the Chernobyl accident? Behind this idea, one can only find a bittersweet story in which, above the probable dramatic outcome, friendship and enthusiasm for life can be glimpsed. Everything is open in the end, it’s better that way.

“Sunday Afternoons in Pripyat” is the new single from Slovenska Televiza, released by the Barcelona label Manufactured Desire Records. It is an ultra-limited edition of only 22 lathe-cut vinyl copies that, in addition to the main track, includes the instrumental “Micromegas” on side B.

Each cover has been made by hand in paper and binding cloth, designed by Wladyslaw Trejo in collaboration with the prestigious Ukrainian photographer Maxim Dondyuk. The cover image was rescued from the exclusion zone along with other photographs, postcards and family footage urgently abandoned by the disaster and exposed to weather and radiation for decades. Lost memories that Maxim Dondyuk tries to reconstruct in his “Untitled Project from Chernobyl”.

Karl Kave - Zeit der Unschuld

Existential synthpunk from St. Gallen, Switzerland.

I spent a big part of my short life with guitars, pedals, synths, drummachines and melancholy. As Karl Kave I feel free to expose my music. As Karl Kave I don’t need to give a shit. Whenever it is possible, the first take is the last. I’m sure there’s some truth in this. [Discogs]
