A beat a day for one entire year: The mission that Bern based drummer and sound forager Julian Sartorius began on 1st of January 2011. The recorded tracks were created without electronic effects, samples or loops: every single hit was actually played, all the sounds are real – only overdubs were used.
The Beat Diary is now available in its entirety in an adequate analogue manner: consisting of 365 beats pressed on 12 LPs alongside a book with 365 photos, a poster and a personal download code for all 365 compositions. The box is limited to 365 pieces.
The Beat Diary will be released 14 December 2012. Price: CHF 229, worldwide shipping included.

The music of v4w.enko + d’incise is about duality, languages and focal points, always so close but never totally in contact. AM.P.E.REM.EC comes as 12” vinyl with 6 tracks, a fine tuning of ambient, glitches, electroacoustic, soft hisses and a slight touch of fragmented electronica.
