Dust Archive, a collection of ambient music

Post by arnoux » Tue Jan 28, 2020 7:21 am

Dust Archive is an ambient music collection focused on investigating the concept of hauntology, saudade, nostalgia for something that never happened.

The works we publish are metaphor of a present stuck between a past disrupted in dust and "a future that never came to pass".

Like it was an actual archive found in a dusty attic, DA is a coexistence of a contraddiction: the spools seem to come from a future that is the present which past is the time the sounds belong to.


For the first year Dust Archive will release one album every month, mainly (but not only) by sound designers and musicians known as Bias and Arnoux.


"D.A. # 001 - A.D. 2020" is out today, a dirty mix of digital sounds and ghostly voices drowned in analog hissing, recorded and mixed by Alberto Biasutti, aka Bias, musician, sound and light designer for the theater based in Pordenone, Italy.

The graphic design for Dust Archive is curated by Vita Tae Zorat, director of photography and graphic designer currently living in Estonia.

Here we go with the hateful eight:



Item D.A. #008 - A.D. 2020 is an original BASF cardboard box including a magnetic tape and what appears to be the torn page of an agenda, the date is 6 of October, the year unknown:

"Day 1 at 37°07′N 116°03′W.
ninety-second floor, late night.
someone playing piano next door.
outside the window present, past and future coexist.
stare at the flashing lights on top of the skyscrapers and the cars passing by.
piano music keeps playing, open the door and the music reverberates through the hallway and the stairwell. press "rec" on my tape recorder.
fall asleep.
when I wake up the reel runs idle, day-light, the door is still open.
walking out I check the name on the door bell, Luca Buosi.
coming home later, hallway at the ninety-second floor, time stops, blood freezes, the apartment next door is no more, no door bell, no door
rewind the tape and the music is there, a souvenir, from nowhere."

Creative process:
phase 1 (present | existence) – record
phase 2 (future | awareness) – sleep
phase 3 (???) - this is what was actually recorded
