ISSUE 6



ISSUE #6

Editors note:

I'm gonna be a bit minimal this time. It was fun. Making this issue was really satisfying experience. I've met lots of interesting people, got so many ideas i'm almost overwhelmed. It is really good. I'm proud of this issue. It came together naturally as mesmerizing kaleidoscope with intense humming.

The submission flow was tight but relatively clean. 52 letters if being exact. Rather big number for a niche poorly named online magazine which is barely indexed in Google and barely exposed (hey, i'm in charge i can be honest). Even rejected submission weren't that bad. Just not something that can be used in BNW with maximum result. And I had a really funny discussion on politics of including bio and photo on one of the posts in the submission calls groups. Anyway...

Look at the line-up - all top-notch hardcore funkateers!

Rafael Gonzalez - Makings Buttons

Rafael González released his first cassette of experimental electronic music in 1986, at the age of 16 (Exenple by Brigada Nadie, a duo with his 13-year-old brother). He was a member of the futurist multidisciplinary group Equipo Estético Étika Makinal (or 3EM), and Spanish experimental noise band I.Q.C.M. Rafael is a prolific audio artist with numerous collaborative works as well as his solo recordings. He is also a collage and décollage artist (his visual and audio works bear many striking similarities!), and is head of the art department at Tape Safe. (HalTapes http://www.haltapes.com/aterrizaje-magnetico.html)

Ética Makinal was a group of teenagers who experimented with music created with synthesisers. Their aesthetic was related to punk, noise and industrial movements, but they also referred to other times and forms – they researched the visual principles of avant-garde and they were influenced by Futurism, Dadaism and Constructivism. In spite of living in the periphery, in the isolated Asturias, they soon engaged with the emerging national scene, which had nothing to do with the famous “Movida”, and they even exchanged letters, fanzines and cassettes with groups from other countries, likes France, Italy and USA.
