Gwynplaine de Pétroleuse Just wow. Another phenomenal compilation of incredible audio engineers from Unexplained Sounds Group. New Modernism is full of some of the most creative Avant-Garde Electronic composers best pieces, and is made up of all kinds of odd, expressive and beautify crafted tracks. I have a lot of releases from some of the artists present here to dive into now. Favorite track: Peri Esvultras - Osmium Wedding Ring.

Floyd Kelley Unexplained Sounds is the type of record label that takes everything good for itself and discards the garbage. This compilation could've easily passed as a CMI compilation for noise artists 20 years ago. The fact that David Lee Myers (Arcane Device) starts this collection off shows that US means business and should be taken very seriously. Favorite track: arcane device - spectre extremis.

Purple Crow Sophisticated raw expressionism of self-liberated creativity. These are sounds I have spent my lifetime enjoying and this is a beautiful collection of works. Other-dimensional in their expression. No true collector would ever pass this up.


In music, modernism is a philosophical and aesthetic stance underlying the period of change and development in musical language that occurred around the turn of the 20th century, a period of diverse reactions in challenging and reinterpreting older categories of music, innovations that lead to new ways of organizing and approaching harmonic, melodic, sonic, and rhythmic aspects of music, and changes in aesthetic worldviews in close relation to the larger identifiable period of modernism in the arts of the time. The operative word most associated with it is "innovation". Its leading feature is a "linguistic plurality", which is to say that no one music genre ever assumed a dominant position. After more than a century a new wave of musicians, sound designers and performers from the underground, are experimenting innovative, exotic, strange, bizarre music forms; in one word: unexplained sounds.
