Report: "Second Gift of Life" out on Databloem

After a fruitless first week of searching, we have stopped in port to resupply only to learn that meanwhile in Europe, the excellent Databloem label (which just happens to be the main gterma distributor as well...) has just released a new album by Mathias Grassow called "The Second Gift of Life". No further data is available here at this time, please head over to the label website for more information. Looking forward to hear this album myself when returning from these southern waters.

Note of absence - December expedition

As the rainy season comes to a halt it is time to relaunch the quest for the mysterious Nagas, the sacred sea serpents of old. We'll be launching a new expedition in late November and return after the Christmas holidays. Please note that the webshop will be open for one more week and then go into hibernation for the remainder of the year. Wish us good hunting, who knows what artefacts they safeguard.

Four hours until sunrise...

gterma is happy to announce the last titles of 2012, a magnificent four hour crescendo to the activities of 2012. We wish to take this opportunity to thank all the artists, contributors, listeners and supporters around the world who have made this journey so enjoyable.

[gterma023] : Mathias Grassow & Carsten Agthe - Beyond The Silence (out now)

This summer, Mathias and Carsten performed live at the Gut Saunstorf, a retreat in Northern Germany. The concert marked the end of an extended period of silence for the people attending. The recording captures two hours of raw and ritualistic music and also features some new improvisations which were recorded during the night shift at the local hotel. Double album in jewelcase with 16 page booklet.

[gterma024] : As If  - Faraway Trees Standing Still (out now)

Danish musician and artist Kenneth Werner invites us to a journey away from the chaos of today's frenzied cities and into the quiet realm of the distant mountains and serene forests, an escape from ourselves and a home away from home. A vision painted with ambient and dubtechno crayons. Comes in a jewelcase with 16 page booklet.

And now for a word...

The great crew of the Polish webzine Santa Sangre recently asked the label a few questions and have published a little interview which gives some insights into the origins of gterma (found here). Those who enjoy dark ambient and industrial music will also find lots of competent in depth-reviews and interviews with interesting musicians on the site.
