Yuen Chee Wai is a musician, artist, designer and curator based in Singapore. Often inspired by ideas drawn from philosophical and literary texts, and perspectives glimpsed through the filmic eye and photographic lens, Yuen’s stylistic oeuvre in improvised music is marked by internalised reflections on memory and loss, invisibility and indeterminacy. In 2008, he teamed with Otomo Yoshihide (Japan), Ryu Hankil (South Korea), and Yan Jun (China) to form FEN (Far East Network), a music quartet that continues to work with multifaceted networks and collaborations between musicians and artists across Asian countries. He is also a member of the avant-rock band The Observatory, with whom he plays guitar, synth and electronics.Lasse Marhaug has since the early 1990s been one of the most active artists in the Norwegian noise/experimental music scene. As a performer and composer he has contributed to well over 300 CD, vinyl and cassette releases over the years, as well as extensive touring and performing live on all continents of the world. In addition to his solo work, Marhaug has collaborated with many artists in the fields of noise, experimental, improv, jazz, rock and metal, as well as working with music and sound for theatre, dance, installations, cinema and video.In 2006, the two spent a full night recording together at the now defunct FluxUs record store in Singapore. The material for the sessions were partially mixed, but remained unfinished. Ten years later, in 2016, the two met again to record in Marhaug’s Oslo studio. The previous recording wasn’t thought of during the new session, but in the course of the mixing it was discovered that the two recordings fit together like a glove. The long-form droney 2006 sessions, recorded late at night in the humid heat of Singapore, complimented the more angular electronic 2016 recording, which was captured in daytime during the brutally cold January winter of Norway. The opposing qualities of the sessions complemented each other, and now the result is available as “In Praise of Shadows”. Sometimes it takes ten years to make an album.
Sult / Lasse Marhaug - Harpoon
Sult / Lasse Marhaug
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Pica Disk)
15,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Havard Skaset / Jacob Felix Heule / Guro Skumsnes Moe / Lasse Marhaug. Recorded at Tunnelen, Oslo, May 2014. Mixed at the best studio in Oslo, 20152016. A collaborative LP of acoustic improvisors SULT (Håvard Skaset: guitar / Jacob Felix Heule: percussion / Guro Skumsnes Moe: double bass) and Norwegian sound artist Lasse Marhaug. The source material is performed by SULT, while the album was constructed and produced by Lasse Marhaug. In the hands of Marhaug the already dense and visceral expression of SULT is transformed into a maelstrom of layered sheets of scraping noise, rising and collapsing simultaneously. Some listeneres will place "Harpoon" in the proximity of artists like Organum, David Tudor and Ferial Confine, but the music carves its own place in the landscape. A joint release between Pica Disk and Conrad Sound, limited to 200 copies.

Dalströka Bortafor
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Pica Disk)

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Bjørn Hatterud and André Hardang Borgen have been staples of the Norwegian experimental music underground for 20+ years. Individually they have been active with numerous projects spanning from post-ironic queernoise and decontructed folk plunderphonics to cloudy guitar psychedelia and hard hitting avant boogie both musicians have wandereed the kind of adventurous artistic paths that starts to make sense when viewed in hindsight, revealting continuous multidisciplinary lines of ideas.Despite being long-time collaborators Dalstrøka Bortafor is Hatterud and Borgens debut album as a duo. It's also a record that took 13 years to make. Not that the twosome were aiming to making an album, Dalstrøka Bortafor slowly fell in place through numerous recording sessions that accumulated and eventually took the shape of an album. (You can't rush magic).The six tracks that make the album are dream-like electronic excursions, with layers of synth, guitar, percussion, viola and found sounds the duo weaves a sonic tapestry that hints at a kinship to 1970's German electronic music pioneers. This is probably not accidental, as Hatterud collaborated with Conrad Schnitzler in the years before his passing. But there's more to it, the Norwegian title translates to The Valleys Beyond and this is music that brings you deep into Norwegian folklore, with trolls, draugen and other mythical creatures lurking within the forest. But, Hatterud and Borgen are there to guide you through the mysterious landscape, making sure that you come out at the other end unharmed.
Menstruation Sisters - Glass Walking
Menstruation Sisters
Glass Walking
LP | 2015 | EU | Original (Pica Disk)

Release:2015 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Pica Disk is proud to release "Glass Walking" an LP of recently unearthed recordings by the infamous Australian noise band Menstruation Sisters. Over the years the Menstruation Sisters have through a selective, but incredibly varied output of albums steadily built a reputation among music fans as a unique band. It was never a secret who the members of Menstruation Sisters were, yet the band's aura was shrouded in mystery and confusion, possibly because they would completely reinvent themselves with every new recorded statement. As a fan of the Menstruation Sisters you had to abandon everything you knew with each new piece of the puzzle.And now we can go back to the beginning, the birth of the Sisters, as by pure luck early previously unreleased material from 1995 was recently discovered in the vaults in Perth's Endless Studios archives. On these recordings the band was the duo of Oren Ambarchi and Nik Kamvissis, but with producer Anthony Maher assisting and performing on some tracks. Ambarchi and Kamvissis would continue as a duo until Brendan Walls joined in 2001The material heard on "Glass Walking" has a different flavor to the albums that would follow. Fans will immediately be struck by the almost total absence of drums and guitars, as the music on "Glass Walking" is built around electronics and vocals. This makes the music feel more immediate, urgent and desperate. Tracks like "Give Blood" and "Don't Fuck" reveals the missing link between Hanatarash, Maurizio Bianchi and the monkeys in the Evolution Revolution band. This is noise music history in reverse.The album also contains the first Menstruation Sisters live concert, which documents that the band's ferocious performance antics were also fully developed from the very first time they set foot on stage. This is the complete set, all glorious 9 minutes and 35 seconds of it."Glass Walking" will only be available on vinyl and comes with liner notes and archival photos that explains everything.
