BeK :: Cheikh

BeKCheikh” // Kaometry Records // Release 17 February 2014 // Artwork: Paola Verde.

“Puzzling music is perhaps a suitable term to describe this 5-tracks Bek‘s release: beats, glitches, minimal chromatic keys and vocal fragments put in line, freezed, slotted in and reverted like tesserae, played, spinned and stretched in, an astonishing and peaceful movement where genres and styles are floating deconstructed one into the other.

Indeed, this is electronic music in its unique and inexplicable feature, to give you a sense of warm, a warm feeling too, to embrace you even, despite its coldness, its digital, clinical precision.”

Chims :: Truant Heart EP

ChimsTruant Heart EP” // Label: Insight Records // Release 17 February 2014.

“Norwegian producer Chims loves dark electronic soundscapes, downtempo beats and long walks on the beach. He’s been named a ambient chill out god by ‘the get downnn’, and ‘indieshuffle’ praises his diverse and eclectic taste, easily heard in his vast range of chilled out remixes and original tracks.

Truant Heart is the story of an escape and a journey. It is also a tribute to every truant heart and escapist out there. Let your mind go.”

Three Ways To Destroy The Universe

How will the Universe die?

Everybody dies. The universe too? Well, probably. What are the current theories about the end of everything? And how creepy exactly are these theories? (Spoiler: very creepy). But there might be hope…

BBC Knowledge Explainer DNA

BBC Knowledge and Learning is exploring a wide variety of topics from social history to science in a series of three-minute online Explainer documentaries, and commissioned Territory to produce an animated film on the subject of DNA.

Three minutes is a short time to explore a subject where most doctorates only scratch the surface, so writer Andrew S. Walsh teamed up with molecular biologist Dr Matthew Adams to distil the script down to the most fundamental elements required to understand not only DNA’s form and function but how our understanding of these discoveries has affected the wider world. While this length may feel restrictive, the team found that this limitation acted as a lens, focusing the piece on the essentials.

Art & animation director: William Samuel • Writer & VO director: Andrew S Walsh.
Scientist: Dr Matthew Adams.

Walrus Ghost :: Uplifting Themes For the Naysayer

Walrus GhostUplifting Themes For the Naysayer” // Project: Mooncircle // Rel. 14.02.2014.

Walrus Ghost‘s ‘Uplifting Themes For The Naysayer’ is essentially a conversation between organic sound and artificial design. Immersed in rich textures and the meticulous processing of analog instrumentation, the songs facilitate moments of exchange between tranquil subtleties and abrasive tensions. These intertwining moments come and go as the record plays out, but they follow us throughout, leaving us with a soundscape that exists in both beautiful harmony and eerie decay.”


Simon knows about ducks quite well. They make noise, fly, swim, some even roll. Sometimes, it’s a bit confusing and Simon gets lost.
