Re View
by Iliaque

Iliaque is a project of one of the co-founders of Ziklibrenbib (www.ziklibrenbib.fr a French project to promote Creative Commons (CC) music). The Iliaque project, that has matured for several years now, seeks to exploit the potential of CC music and explores this world through choice of sources and samples.
This selection are all tracks based on samples of TCFSR releases. Our label was founded on the principle of DIY so we are pleased to support the work of Iliaque and Ziklibrenbib in promoting the use of Creative Commons licensing.
Proceeds from this release will be donated to the charity Phone Credit For Refugees And Displaced People.

th-Invasive Species Cover WEB.jpg
Invasive Species
by tourmaline hum

The history of TCFSR and tourmaline hum are closely entwined so it is appropriate that the 100th release on TCFSR Bandcamp sees the return of tourmaline hum, five years since their last album 'system Imperfect
During this time the duo of Lone Cosmonaut and Dental Drill have each created a number of solo releases and contributed to a variety of other projects (and Dental Drill has taken on the day to day running of the TCFSR label) so the tracks for 'Invasive Species' were created intermittently between 2017 and 2021. Nonetheless the album demonstrates a thematic consistency. The album has a darker edge than most of tourmaline hum's previous work.

In addition to high resolution digital. the album is available on CD with gatefold sleeve.

Agency Cover WEB.jpg
Agency
by Various Artists

The eleventh TCFSR Solo Word Project release.

2020 was a memorable year, especially notable in those parts of the world where 'freedom' is taken for granted. In the UK there were also the machinations as our future relations with the European Union and the World in general were thrashed out.
We also remember the passing of Solo Word contributor National Sound.

With that as a backdrop, a pool of artist were given the single word 'Agency' to interpret with whatever audio they deemed appropriate.

DDS-Bridget Riley COVER WEB.jpg
Bridget Riley
by Dental Drill Slips

A high definition digital EP.

"Inspired by a recording that I heard whilst assisting with the production of BERG 7, the recent release by British Experimental Rocket Group, this release started as an abstract sound sculpture. These audio are sculpted from layers of similar sound. When I listened to the first completed track I noticed sound elements that do not appear in the source synthesis. It reminded me of paintings by Bridget Riley that I viewed at an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery near the end of 2019. In particular black and white paintings such as 'Over' in which your eye detects a rainbow of colours that are not physically there.
I created further sculptures with additional elements to reflect the development of colour and movement in the line paintings by Bridget Riley." DD
