    It is sad there are less than 150 Million people from indigenous tribes, left on Earth. Considered to be uncivilized. They are the people who led humanity out of the forest. Into the governments, religions and corporations. That now threaten our true ancestors’ existence. This album is dedicated to the last tribes, past and present (listed below), who's cultures have been lost to the ignorance of progress.

    I can think of no more important subject than Climate Change. In these contentious times, when politics and other things divide us, we should all be able to believe in a common enemy-- a common goal. The rapid warming of this planet is unnatural, and the scientific community recognizes it. This current administration does not. You can pretend a clear and steady trend isn't happening, but you can feel it in your skin, your bones, and your memory. You remember Winters with lots of snow-- that lasted 3 months. Winter months without freakishly warm, 80-degree days. A North Pole that didn't climb above 32 degrees in the Winter. An inconvenient truth? Yes-- but one we can (and must) deal with. The answer is simple-- use currently known and accepted technologies, as many countries have, particularly in Europe, and switch the U.S. power grid over to renewable energy. Not only do we get our planet, and the future of it, back. We also step up with the rest of the planet-- and enjoy the many benefits of solar and wind energy. I have created a soundscape series, to which I will be adding more pieces, with the notion of persuading people to accept and consider climate change as real, and to acknowledge the known remedies and to work towards them-- I call this "The Emissions Series". I hope that you will join me in contemplation of this serious subject, at a very pivotal time. Listen, believe, and share. We can all work together on this one: https://archive.org/details/TheEmissionsSeries

    If 2018 is anything like the previous twelve months, it means a steady stream of solo works and collaborations ahead for sound experimentalist Jack Hertz, and `The Last Songs of a Dying Tribe' sees the man going it alone for an diverse series of pieces reflecting on ancient indigenous tribes and rapidly vanishing ancient cultures. Sure, Hertz could deliver a series of predictable tribal-flecked ambient tracks, but instead he offers fluctuating experimental electronic fragments, hypnotic prog-electronic journeys and intangible freeform sound collages that make up a very immersive and enticing near-seventy minute exploration. Looking at some of the highlights, opener `Fragrant Perfume of Pleasant Memories' is a subtle collage of treated percussion, hazy acoustic guitars, drowsy electronic washes and slinking bass, with traces of unease creeping around the edges of an otherwise heady chill-out. Restless and glitching electronics seep over raga-like dustiness throughout `Nyami Nyami Swells the Zambezi', `As if There is No Afterlife' is frequently a sauntering psychedelic bass rumination, and the ten-plus minute `On Being Ancient, a Faculty for Surviving Disorder' is a dreamlike ambient drift of ebbing synth drones. `Arabesque Forms in Pale Blue and Browns' almost lurches with restrained trip-hop grooves, and `Lost to the Ignorance of Progress' embraces those unhurried and carefully unfurling electronic atmospheres of the early Klaus Schulze albums like `Picture Music' and twists it with a languid jazzy waft. The fifteen minute `History, a Computer Stored in Tomorrow' starts as a surreal Steve Roach-like ambient drone of ringing crystalline slivers that turns enveloping and oddly embracing as fizzing synth caresses and lightly pattering percussive tribal beats circle the piece, but ultimately it distorts into schizophrenic twitching oblivion in the climax. Bleeding electronic pools permeate the hallucinogenic `Charred n' Pulsed', and the closing title track `The Last Song of a Dying Tribe' is skittering and frantic. Listeners unfamiliar with Jack's work should probably investigate something like his more obviously melodic space music/Berlin School-modelled double `Planet Red' from 2016 first, or his gentler collaborations with the recently late Wolfgang Gsell from last year such as `Sleeping Trees on Earth' and `Blue'. But `The Last Songs of a Dying Tribe' is a challenging, varied (maybe even a little maddening!) and eclectic set that is frequently, seductively disorientating and endlessly fascinating. Four stars.

    The Asian Trilogy, Volume III. This album is a mystical path to the sacred mount Sagarmatha. The real name of Mount Everest is "Sagarmatha" in Nepal, and "Chomolungma" in Tibet. Sagarmatha is also one of the fourteen zones located in eastern Nepal. It takes its name from the mount Sagarmatha, which is located in the very north of the zone, in the SoluKhumbu district. The zone of Sagarmatha is divided into six districts: Saptari, Siraha, Udayapur, Khotang, Okhaldhunga, Solukhumbu. Sagarmatha means "the Head in the Great Blue Sky". Album recorded, mixed and mastered in 2006 at Flipper The Dog Studio, Paris, France. Original release in 2006 by Somewhere In Time Records, Paris, France. Digital release mastered in 2011 at Scoz Mastering Suite, Cœur de Beauce, France. Digital release by Murmure Intemporel in 2015. On the front cover : Rongbuk Monastery, Chomolungma north face, Tibet; photo by Csearl. On the back cover : Sagarmatha south face, Nepal, view from an aircraft; photo by Shrimpo.

    I produced ALL my sounds because I was a professional (retired now) sound-designer and ambient-designer for films, games and TV. My "oldest" sounds was recorded with analog recorders, and the most recent with digital recorder. For electronic sounds, in the past I used synth, and now I used (like many sound-designers) NI Reaktor with custom-built ensembles.

    Voices, Improv, Collage, Magic... All music in this collection was performed, recorded, engineered, edited, and produced by Charles Rice Goff III, except "Sensual Artless Beautiful," which was created in collaboration with Greg Segal, who added piano and synthesizer to a raw Goff recording, and who engineered the final result. Some Specifics: 1 "Voxipedic Ambulator" was created for the album: "One Minute Symphony/Apologia De Los Insectos" (https://endogamic.bandcamp.com/album/one-minute-symphony-apolog-a-de-los-insectos), released by Endogamic/Antonio Murga in September, 2017. 2 "Sweven" is a Goff III improvisation, created January 2, 2018. The word "Sweven" means: "a vision seen in sleep." 3 "Sensual Artless Beautiful" was created for the album: "Invisible Ground of Sympathy" by Greg Segal With Friends (http://www.gregsegal.com/invisiblegroundofsympathy.htm), released by Phantom Airship in August, 2017. 4 "Life's Unquiet Dream" was created in February, 2018, out of leftover building blocks from Goff's Taped Rugs album: "Tone Telegrams" (https://archive.org/details/ToneTelegrams), released in April, 2017. 5 "What Did You Do To My Dad?" and "I Forgot My PIN Code" were created for the compilation album: "Twenty-Seven Years Later" (https://generationsunlimited.bandcamp.com/album/twenty-seven-years-later), released by Generations Unlimited/Gen Ken Montgomery in October, 2017. 6 "Choir Ire For Facile Figs" is a Goff III improvisation, created January 6, 2018. "Choir Ire Facile Figs" is an anagram of "Charles Rice Goff III." The word "for" is a handy English preposition. 7 "Oligarchies Ice Riff" is a Goff III improvisation, created January 2, 2018. "Oligarchies Ice Riff" is an anagram of "Charles Rice Goff III." 8 "Catwalks In Sandusky Manor" is a segment of a much longer Goff III improvisation, recorded on August 15, 2017. It was extracted to serve as the soundtrack for a video Goff produced in December, 2017, which features Goff's cats: Carmelita and Climbit. A copy of the video is included in the online post, and a streamable online file is available here: https://archive.org/download/WhatYouSayTellsWhatYouAre/CatwalksInSanduskyManor.mp4 . The full-length improvisation from which this recording was extracted was released in January, 2018, on the Taped Rugs album "The Idea Of Hell In The Bible" (https://archive.org/details/TheIdeaOfHellInTheBible). 9 "Do It For Spiritual Fulfillment" was created for the compilation album: "Friends of Stilletid 2018" (https://stilletid.bandcamp.com/album/friends-of-stilletid-2018-compilation), released by Stilletid/Lasse Jensen in January, 2018. Goff also created the cover art for this album.

    The ET-4.3 takes the all-analog design and adds a modern MIDI over USB output that allows it to control software synthesesizers and other external hardware for unlimited sonic possibilities. All of the extra features of the ET-4.2 are also included as well as a second expression pedal / CV input that can be assigned to different parameters, and two Hold knobs for the intensity keys. The MIDI over USB feature can operate in four different modes and allows for high speed and low latency. The position of the ring is sent as a 4 octave or 2 octave pitch bend and CC values are sent for the position of the intensity keys, expression pedal, osc 2 offset control, and octave controls. The intensity keys trigger notes on one or two separate channels depending on the mode setting, this allows each to trigger different instances of the same softsynth or different programs entirely. The sounds created from external hardware or software can then be sent back into the ET-4.3's external audio input to take advantage of the internal lowpass filter and spring reverb before being sent out for amplification or recording. The second expression pedal input allows for bending the pitch of an oscillator, modifying the pulse width or controlling the output volume. This input also doubles as an external CV input and is assignable to control osc 1+2 pitch, osc 2 pitch, osc 2 pulse width or osc 1+2 volume. The ET-4.3 also has two Hold knobs above the intensity keys that allow the volume of each oscillator to be set without having to press the intensity keys.
