VIC // Aveiro Arts House We stumbled across this pearl on a short trip to Zurich at the lovely OOR record shop, ran by a very welcoming sound arts collective. Having inquired about Swiss exploratory music, they recommended a few choices and, fortunately, this record was amongst them. We felt immediately drawn by its dark, abstract textures and powerful low end.

Finn of Tomland This album is absolutely not for the faint-hearted but if feedback, noise and other forms of an infernal racket makes you comfortable i can promise you, it's right up your alley.
So go get it!

Mythology for the posthuman age.

From «The New Kind» to «Posthuman Wonderland», Simon Grab’s album «Posthuman Species» is a sonic journey through an astonishing land of fragile feedbacks, pulsating drones and opulent outbursts of noise. Recorded on a no-input-mixing setup consisting of low frequency oscillators, filters, analogue effects and a mixer patched with itself, the album sneaks up on dub and leftfield electronica from the side. Over time, the self-oscillating setup falls in and out of tune with itself, emphasising its transient nature. The album is a work of science fiction, telling the story of a time when «The New Kind» shapes its own wonderland.

Swiss sound artist and musician Simon Grab explores new grounds by negating assumed borders. In his recent work, he focuses on reduction, and the peculiarity of self-referential systems.
The album «Posthuman Species» follows his recent EP «Extinction» on -OUS. His «Diamonds EP» in collaboration with Togolese rapper Yao Bobby and Asian Dub Foundation’s Dhangsha releases on Bristol’s LavaLava Records in September 2019. Simon Grab’s recent works includes «Hirnmusik 1 & 2», in which he dives deep into musical imagery by transferring his sonic ideas directly from his brain to vinyl.
