Biblo aka Pinar Üzeltüzenci is a young musician from the growing experimental, hypnagogic and lo-fi music scene in Istanbul. In her music you feel the intensity again and again in an almost painful way when it peeps through the curtain of drones and noise. She is a sister in mind for acts like Inca Ore, Pocahaunted and Kuupuu, who amalgamate folk traditions, vanguard experiments, improvisation and outsider art. Her record “On Ugliness” was released in a limited edition of 200 pieces as the first ever record on Quetzi Records in may 2010.
Duchamp is an Italian scientist and musician based in Berlin, religiousely devoted to drone. She’s mainly inspired by the sound of the hairdryer, drone superheroines such as CC Hennix, Eliane Radigue, Pauline Oliveros. She had her debut as solo on the Aug 22 2010 and since then performed in many galleries/clubs in Berlin. She’s currently experimenting with different instruments (bass guitar, baritone guitar, keyboard, accordion) and will have her debut on tape in May/June 12. As curator, she organize gigs for artists she love and she is the co-curator of Occultofest.
Svet is the solo project of Susanna Trotta, keyboard player of the Berliner indie/shoegaze band I have no mouth and I must scream. In her tracks, she mix field recordings, ethereal key sounds and rhythms to create a aching aural landscapes.

New Preslav Literary School tape-stry is out now! The album is available as a free download from Interdisco, esteemed Zurich purveyors of sonic materials, and was described as “dense, stunning and ritualistic live cassette collage and found sound conjuring” by Lend Me Your Ears.
This is what Interdisco kindly wrote by way of liner notes:
We’re very excited to introduce you to the Preslav Literary School. Preslav’s ambient drones are an offer of peace and tranquility. Veer is disarmingly heartfelt and has an emotional intensity which leaves you with goose bumps and a deep feeling of sobriety. While doing that, it’s not esoteric or New Age-y in any way. So we’re not talking about waves breaking on the shore, whales mating in the deep ocean, or the like. No, droning out of the tape archive are lost & found violins, ghostly voices, stretched out guitar riffs and industrial soundscapes.
Veer uses live recordings of a Preslav Literary School concert at Open Broadcast’s Radio Village, Basel, Switzerland on Friday June 18th 2010. It was mixed and named in Berlin in March 2011. Artwork is by Benjamin Laurent Aman.
