Toto Tobass Vol. 9 is really magnificent. I congratulate everyone who participated here and I am very enchanted by your pieces. The album sounds very interesting, exciting and inspires to repeat. My biggest favorite is "Wonky Walker" by Denz de Kroon, but this is only one of my favorite tracks. Great work dear AEMC Favorite track: Wonky Walker.

Michael Upton (Jet Jaguar) A bit weird commenting on an album I'm on, but I hope even if you had no part in the process this is still a really enjoyable smorgasbord of different contemporary ambient flavours.

about

This album is part of the Communal Music series. AEMC created this ongoing experiment as an exploration of the usage of audio sources, the methodology of experimental ambient composers and sound in general.

Beforehand, each composer contributed audio - recorded instruments, field recordings, analog synthesizers, etc - resulting in a collective sample pack. The composers then had to translate this audio material to a musical composition. They weren’t allowed to add anything, so each composition is made with the same audio material.

It is striking to hear how the audio is interpreted, used and contextualized differently by the individual composers and how diverse and unique the compositions are. This clarifies the agency of the creators: they - not the audio - make the music. On the other hand, the audio sources demarcate a certain musical terrain, similar as to the limits of an acoustic instrument.

Above all, the Communal Music series is a celebration of experimental music and the collaboration between - often underappreciated - artists.

Cover: Abe Vink.
