Various Artists – Zvukolom (LOM, 2011)

Published March, 2011

The idea for the new label LOM dedicated to “unknown or forgotten experimental artists .. mostly [from] Eastern Europe” was born during the Spring/Summer 2010. Its brain, the Slovak activist turned sound-artist mrkva, currently a sonology student at Den Haag’s Royal Conservatoire has put together an impressive roster of projects, that really range from the forgotten to the new & up-and-coming.

With the exception of Bratislava’s experimental √©minence grise ::.: and his projects 1/x and Angakkut, all the artists featured on the inaugural release – a compilation called Zvukolom – are thus having their first release out, even though some, such as PRLN have been active in the field for more then a decade. The newcomers include Andras E.G. Csefalvay, whose conceptual and intertextual approach in his own artistic practice can be felt also on the tracks selected for the compilation, or Unbending Intent – a psychonaut on a darkambient sonic trip into the lower layers of the Self. Happy B-Day LOM !
