WEBSITE UPDATED /
FORTHCOMING RELEASES 02.02.20
A very belated Happy New Year! Our new website is now up and running. After a relatively quiet 2019, this year we are expecting to present several new releases, including a long-awaited cassette from Automatic Writing Circle, as well as works from Poulomi Desai and Jonas Gustafsson. First out, however, will be a cassette and digital download of «Two Feedback Compositions» by Bristol-based sound artist Jake Wittlin. This release presents two lengthy pieces composed using a traditional DJ arrangement of turntable, mixer and sampler - with the only sound source used (as the title might imply) being a feedback loop created by this set-up. The original composition was produced for - and broadcast on - Resonance Extra (the online platform for London-based art-radio station ResonanceFM) in May 2016; the accompanying piece was composed specifically for this cassette release, using the same set-up and methodology, in the early months of 2020. We expect this to be ready sometime early March - more information soon.
ORPHAN «YIJODA» 05.07.19
We are very happy to finally be able to announce the release of «Yijoda» by Orphan (aka Ewan-Christopher Duncan), after many delays! Consisting of nine tracks clocking in at just over 40 minutes, this album takes us on an unsettling yet beautiful journey through bleak and harsh aural landscapes. A rave party backwards, with a Tyneside twist. Press release to be found here.
PETER COYTE «NOW» 15.04.19
Fantastic new release from Peter Coyte. His second for Impeka following 2017's beautiful «Crack & Murmur», «Now» consists of two binaural compositions of field recordings taken in and around Hornsey Town Hall, North London, which were originally presented as a six speaker installation at the (sadly) now-defunct Ply Gallery in Semptember 2016. Re-mixed and edited for the cassette format between February and March 2019. Press release can be found here. In loving memory of Paul Berry.
Impeka is a small imprint dedicated to presenting and promoting experimental auditory works, particularly in the fields of phonography, electro-acoustics and abstract electronic music. We have organised and participated in a number of events and presentations since our inception, and plenty more is to come in the near future. Our limited runs of physical releases are accompanied by high-quality downloads, and are available to purchase from our BandCamp page.
The works presented and released by Impeka are conceived and created in collaboration with friends and acquaintances in relatively close geographic proximity; as such, we do not accept demo submissions at this juncture.
