Sonatine / Thorsten Soltau
Eternal Recurrence / Maleperduys, Abandoned

Composed: 2019 / 2020
Release: September 2023
Format: Digital
Edition: Unlimited



Dwelling and brooding minimalism meets suburban noise and sublevel sonics.
A lecture in life’s bleakness and beauty of nature.


US based sound artist Sonatine and Thorsten Soltau open the crvx. vault with an unreleased split album.
Sonatine offers unspooling ARP Odyssee drones. Dry layers of vibrant microtones and noisy cascades.
Thorsten Soltau assembles an two-part concrète opera based on field recordings, strings and choirs.


electro-space / Femurl
AC(SA)ID GDBY

Composed: 1997 / 2022
Release: November 2023
Format: Digital
Edition: Unlimited



Eccentric. Erratic. Reduced to kick, percussion and acidic riffs:
Two digital sides of handcrafted acid house and microtonal techno waves.

electro-space and Femurl share duties on a rather unusual sound affair.
Composed in a timely distance of 25 years from each other Jan Koppeel and Thorsten Soltau unfold tapestries of acidic lore and tacky rhythms from the digital TB303 realms.


Femurl
Fur And Fangs [Original Soundtrack]

Composed: 2022
Release: Januar 2024
Format: Digital
Edition: Unlimited


Neuwe Junge Klassik: Music for strings, vocalizations and electronic.
A mini suite of sound design compositions created for the first and lost crvx.-movie ›Fur And Fangs‹.

This EP compiles the first orchestral works made by Femurl:
A dive into string based sound derivations and vivid ambiances.
Granular glaciers of reverberating winds and turbulences.


Thorsten Soltau
Trohmo EP (Expanded)

Composed: 2021—2024
Release: March 2024
Format: Digital
Edition: Unlimited


Modular synthesis can be a fertile ground:
›Trohmo‹ reflects the beauty of spontaneous ideas within the cables, patch points and electricity flow.

Drawn-out sketches, experiments and happy accidents in the studio:
The sonic world of ›Trohmo‹ is rooted in the design of contemporary solutions.
Once the machines have stopped the aural illusion is gone and lost.
Here is the essence captured in four time capsules.


Femurl
Affidavits II

Composed: 2022
Release: May 2024
Format: Digital
Edition: Unlimited

›Affidavits II‹ captures the trial-and-error within machine code and hardware wiring.
The machines albeit speak in a very cryptic way.

Sublevel basslines and resonating melancholia: Femurl unfolds a tapestry of machine-generated beauty.
She translates the bleeps and shiftings into patterns and full fleshed compositions while maintaining the erratic behaviour of the stochastic system code.
A mutual collaboration between machine and human player.
