The first full length album from up-and-coming Perth based sound-artist, Kynan Tan. Traversing a multiplicity of musical ground, Raetina features glitchy beats, shimmering spectral harmonies and constantly shifting textures and employs a vast array of sound sources, from electronic glitches and noises to recorded instruments and field recordings, all of which have been processed and manipulated by Tan’s self-made computer programs.
A rhodes piano is diced up and reformed into a new rhythmic entity, modular synthesisers whiz and whir over the top of guitar chords and voices float hauntingly along an environment of sub-bass thumps and rapid glitches. The resulting eight carefully constructed tracks showcase Tan’s talent as a composer, creating an intensely atmospheric work that also concisely articulates the materials of 21st century digital music.

This CD is the tour EP for Kynan’s Japan tour of December 2009. This tour saw Kynan play 11 shows in 20 days, performing with artists such as Psychedelic Desert, Kouhei Harada, Aen, the Ningen Dog Orchestra and Chihei Hatakeyama.
This EP features 23 minutes of dynamic laptop processing, electro-acoustic works and exploration into sound. The 4 tracks are concise and refined, the culmination of two years of performances, installations and compositions by an emerging sound artist. Here field recordings, guitar, vocals and electronic tones mesh into a greater whole, mystifying and immersing the listener.

Immersive Particles is a compilation of student works by Cherie Lebrasse, Ben Hamblin and Kynan Tan. These tracks were composed during 2009 while studying the Bachelor of Music: Music Technology course at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Each artist contributes three tracks, which display the full range of electronic musical studies.
Electro-acoustic compositions, real-time laptop processing and interaction feature throughout this compilation. As the nine tracks progress, the sounds flow from interactive works for clarinet and laptop, to processed prepared piano to spatialised and processed field recordings and electronics.

Mechanisms of Fracture traces the development of the first electroacoustic Aletheia Ensemble through a challenging graduating year, from streaming loops over the internet to feedback loops over MaxMSP.
Stream, a collaboration with Griffith University in Brisbane, is an internet streaming loop that develops interaction, electronic processing and improvisation. The sounds are received and passed on constantly, evolving from sparse blips, vocals and keyboard tones into washes of noise.

Discrete is a re-interpretation of the feedback tape loop pieces of Brian Eno, Robert Fripp and Terry Riley. Here the ensemble improvises on clarinet and piano while processing the sound through two laptops. This creates an ambient wash of recursive melodies and textural accompaniment.
Artists: Cherie Lebrasse, Ben Hamblin, Kynan Tan.
