Viewgazer - Precious Perversions (FREE PUSSY RIOT/Solidarity From Greece)

Freedom of Expression is Not Hooliganism.

Three young women have been sentenced to two years by Russian authorities for allegedly performing a protest song in a cathedral as part of feminist punk group "Pussy Riot".

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (22), Maria Alekhina (24) and Ekaterina Samutsevich (29) were arrested in March 2012 and today found guilty of "hooliganism".

Tell Russia To Release Pussy Riot!

Ode to the great rebellion

Αφιερωμένο σ'αυτούς που αναζητούν την ελευθερία και την αξιοπρέπεια στους δρόμους, σ'αυτούς που τολμούν να αντιμετωπίζουν την ασφυξία των δακρυγόνων και δανείζουν ανάσες εξέγερσης σε μια κοινωνία πνιγμένη απο την ασφυξία της χούντας της Ελλάδας.

Dedicated to those in pursuit of liberty and dignity to the streets, who dare to face the tear-gas suffocation, lending the breath of revolt to a society drown by the suffocation of dictatorship of Greece.

Viewgazer - Game On

The Game is On...
"I believe that young people
without future, will one day take up arms and hang upside down
the traitors of this country at the Syntagma square,
just like the Italians did with Mussolini in 1945"
...taken from suicidal-murdered Dimitris Christoulas' (77 years old) last note at Syntagma square, Athens!

Το παιχνίδι ξεκίνησε...
"Πιστεύω πως οι νέοι χωρίς μέλλον, κάποια μέρα θα πάρουν
τα όπλα και στην πλατεία Συντάγματος θα κρεμάσουν
ανάποδα τους εθνικούς προδότες, όπως έκαναν το 1945
οι Ιταλοί στον Μουσολίνι (Πιάτσα Πορέτο του Μιλάνου).»
...απόσπασμα από το τελευταίο σημείωμα του αυτόχειρα-δολοφονημένου στο Σύνταγμα Δημήτρη Χρήστουλα,77 χρόνων.

Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job...
We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad.
They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone. Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone.
I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!"
I want you to get mad!
So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"
Words from the film "Network" (1976)

Viewgazer - Neromana / Νερομάνα

Sparkling drops on starry flaps... Just a few seconds before you breathe in the humid thought...“Do you remember?”, I hear them singing. “Well, yes!”, I nod, “...we flew together again.. and then we swam, reminiscing the future... again!”

Σπινθηροβόλες σταγόνες έναστρων φτερουγισμάτων… Λίγο πριν εισπνεύσεις μια υδάτινη σκέψη. «Θυμάσαι;», με ρωτούν, τραγουδώντας. «Μα, ναι», απαντώ μ’ ένα νεύμα. «..μαζί πετάξαμε ξανά… και μετά κολυμπήσαμε, αναπολώντας το μέλλον… ξανά!»

To mark the release of the first-ever 21:9 cinema proportion TV, Tribal DDB, Amsterdam wanted to create a short film that lived up to the product's standards. The result? An epic frozen moment with cops and robbers shootout sequence that included clowns, explosions, a decimated hospital, and plenty of broken glass and bullet casings.... I turn it 3 times with my music... i Hope you enjoy it..  S

Train SP Collective - kidnaping the noise (2012)

train sp collective presents a collection of jammings (2004/11) 

 How can you react to someone's inner thoughts? Can you hear them, in the first place? The question has always been there. You just have to ask yourself the question..!
 And that is only the beginning; the opening track. Spiros Train kidnaps his sound to an inner voyage, towards a landscape of special images, effects and memories. Eight tracks that capture various corners of both soul and mind, both technique and instinct, both electric and natural sound, both psychedelic jammings (live recordings) and studio processing.
 Words can sometimes be omitted, as well as genre names. So it is in this case, where, via various music styles, it is more about a trippy, clear gaze of a sincere resolution of frustration to serenity, rather than a virtuosity show off.

A home musician, kidnaping the noise, taking it to electric valleys...

TRaiN SP Collective : Spiros Train (Viewgazer), Jo, Andreas Lordos, Pater, Nikos Hondros, Kostas (bro), Lena, Nikos Gats, Stathis, You, You & You

 Mία ενδιαφέρουσα προσπάθεια αλεσμένη υπο την φιλοσοφία της κολλεκτίβας και η όλη η διαδικασία μου δημιουργήσε θαυμασμό. Όχι οτι τα έζησα η ξέρω πολλά, επικοινώνησε μαζί μου ο Σπύρος απο Πάτρα και μου πρότεινε να ακούσω αυτή τη δουλεία που δημιουργήθηκε. μιξαρίστηκε και συναρμολογήθηκε με σκόρπια ηχογραφήματα απο μεράκι. Γιατι μπορεί τα βασικά όργανα που παίζουνε να είναι τα τύμπανα και η κιθάρα (νομίζω ακούω και ένα μπάσο) -ιδίως τα τύμπανα πρωτοστατούν στα 3 πρώτα κομμάτια- αλλά όλη η ατμόσφαιρα συμπληρώνεται απο πολλούς ηλεκτρονικούς και μη ήχους απο τα γύρω στα 30 άτομα που έχουνε παίξει κατά καιρούς, υπάρχει μια σκοτεινή ambient ατμόσφαιρα. Μου άρεσε αυτό που είπε ο Σπύρος ότι "...οι υπόλοιποι δεν είναι απαραίτητα μουσικοί αλλά άτομα με θέληση για μια ευκαιρία να παίξουνε..." και ότι "...οι ηχογραφήσεις γίνανε σε δωμάτια, κουζίνες καλύβια και εξωτερικούς χώρους". Και παρόλο που οι ηχογραφήσεις έγιναν live και σε "μη συμβατικούς χώρους" (και αυτό το'χουν κάνει και άλλοι μεγάλοι μουσικοί με θαυμάσια αποτελέσματα) το τελικό αποτέλεσμα ακουστικά μου φενεταί αρκετά καλό και όπως είπα πρέπει να παίζουνε αρκετά πράγματα μέσα, δεν είναι απο τους δίσκους που εκτιμάς με την πρώτη. Κλείνω με τα λόγια αυτού που έζησε και ζει τη φάση, σίγουρα σημαίνουν περισσότερα πράγματα απο τα δικά μου (λόγια, εν παρούσα περιπτώση): "Δεν θέλω να περάσω την μιζέρια όμως σε όλο αυτό, ίσα ίσα που θα ήθελα να παροτρύνω και άλλους να μπουν σε ένα τριπάκι ώστε κάποιοι να φύγουνε από τα στενόμυαλα μερικές φορές μουσικά πλαίσια του φτασμένου μουσικού, έχω παίξει σε μπάντες και την χαρά αυτή δεν μου την πρόσφεραν ποτέ όσο τώρα με αυτά τα παιδιά"

Shoegaze, Avant-rock, Alternative, Electro acoustic, Experimental rock, Electro rock, Indie dance, Space rock, Improvised music 

 Train SP Collective is a collective from Greece who offer up a relaxing and sometimes intriguing set of eight (mainly long-running) progressions.
In detail, the album consists of a blend of shoegaze-ish jamming and spacey rock vibes which are obviously recorded as the unplugged ones.Indeed, it is tightly surrounded by electro-acoustic sort of vapour at times variegated with jew`s harp and harmonica-induced chords (reminding a little bit of Aboombong, and Vlor, the US-based quirky musical collectives).
However, without you, you and you makes more sense due to electronics-drenched vibrations and chopped-up sonic effects around and below it.The same can be said about the last episode which shares lofty shoegaze-ish progressions with acute breakbeat/jungle sequences.
Subsequently can be said that it is a case of how shoegaze and space rock can be converted into an instance of as if it were performed by jazz musicians-improvisers who accidentally like to listening to noiseful guitar music.

a review by Recent music heroes blog


Και είναι αυτές οι στιγμές, που - θέλοντας και μη - αναρρωτιέσαι τί είναι αυτό που πραγματικά παίζει ρόλο; Κι είναι αυτές οι σιωπές, που κραυγάζουν “ελευθερία” και ενοχλούν -όπως πάντα- κάποια σύμπαντα…
Μια τεχνική ανάλυση δεν θα άρμοζε -κατά την γνώμη μου- σε ένα τέτοιο album ψυχής. Η σύνθεση των ανθρώπων που συναρμολογούν τον μηχανισμό μιας ευαίσθητης απαγωγής θορύβων και ηλεκτρισμένων υγρών απόηχων, δεν θα μπορούσε να αναδειχθεί πιο εντσικτωδώς και ειλικρινώς.
Το kidnapping the noise, δεν είναι τίποτε άλλο, παρά μια πρόσκληση που μάς χαρίζει ο Spiros Train[aka Viewgazer], να επισκεφθούμε το δικό του σύμπαν, ή αλλιώς, αυτό της TRaiN SP Collective.
Ήχοι ψυχεδέλειας, ζωντανές ηχογραφήσεις στην φύση, επεξεργασμένες αναμνήσεις, καθαρά βλέμματα trippy ξεσπασμάτων.
Και ύστερα..; Select “Repeat whole album”.
H κάθαρση βρίσκεται κάπου μεταξύ… και πέρα από το φράγμα του ήχου. Ίσως σε κάποια λιβάδια, όπου τα όνειρα ηχούν δυνατά και πάλλουν τις καρδιές μας να συνεχίζουμε κάθε ξημέρωμα.
