Unsound Festival have announced details for a "mini-festival" next month in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.Post a comment
Organizers are calling Unsound Tbilisi "a small step in what we hope will be a longer relationship between Unsound and curators and artists in Georgia." The event will take place over two nights at Mtkvarze, a venue overlooking the Kura River (which, in Georgian, is called Mtkvarze). Its program presents Unsound's signature blend of leftfield club music and fully experimental acts. Headliners include Pole, Heatsick, Thomas Fehlmann and Kangding Ray. Poland and Georgia's music scenes will also be well represented. From the former camp there's Jacek Sienkiewicz (playing as Recognition), Zenial, Robert Piernikowski and Warsaw synth artist Piotr Kurek. From the latter there's Tusia Beridze, Jorjick, Nikakoi and Nika J.

Georgian electronic artist Natalie Beridze, often known as TBA, will release a new album called Forgetfulness this March.4 Comments
Like much of her work to date, the new album pairs Beridze's breathy vocals and poetic lyrics with left-field electronic sounds, which range from ambient to something close to industrial. It's a style that makes her a perfect fit for Monika Enterprise, the label run by Berlin avant-garde veteran (and former Einsturzende Neubauten member) Gudrun Gut. Most of the 14 tracks are previously unreleased, while some come from What About Things Like Bullets, Beridze's EP from last summer. Acclaimed Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto makes a guest appearance on "Blue Shadow," a subtle, a characteristically delicate, piano-driven piece.
For an idea of what the album holds in store, have a look at the video for "What About Things Like Bullets":
01. Nothing Ever Changes...Just Rearranges
02. Forever Has No Shadow
03. What About Things Like Bullets
04. Whatever Falls Is Sumptuous
05. Blue Shadow feat. Ryuichi Sakamoto
06. In the White
07. The Face We Choose to Miss
08. When Dreams Become Responsibility
09. Future Will (Never Come)
10. Best Burden
11. Deeply Superficial
13. Give My Thoughts No Tongue
14. Half This Game Is Ninety Percent Mental
Monika Enterprise will release Forgetfulness in Europe on March 4th, 2011, and in the US on March 15th.
