BDNX003: Manifest LP by CORIN   The mother of technology collapses. Ten fragments of her soul are spread in cyberspace. The last encoder composes the pieces to a manifest. A poem that is a call for the distortion of the artificial.  Manifest is an album, in which CORIN synthesizes the reconciliation of the dystopian and utopian.

BDNLP003CD: Fos by Constantine   Bedouin Records and Kyou Records have created an expanded CD edition of the album  Hades  by Constantine, an Athens-based multidisciplinary composer.  BDNLP003CD  includes the 13 minute composition  Fos  that is a sequel to the album.   ‘While working on FOS, I was researching on string theory, particle physics, Arvo Pärts "Tintinnabuli" and the work of Henri Bergson, obsessing about the inevitability of the violent human nature. FOS is the Ancient Greek term for light. It is the final chapter of HADES. This single is what I consider to be a closure, an atonement. I worked on HADES over a 4-year period. I did put a lot of thought in the decision to release the finale apart from the album. FOS is a piece that exists on its own.’   Selected Press:  ’The album also acts as a form of social commentary and creates a parallel between ancient and modern issues. Sonically, Hades is a record of grandeur, where multilayered walls of drone remind the solemn, threatening and even cathartic nature of the storm, while melancholic undertones add an elegant poetic flow.’   Secret Thirteen    ‘The debut album by Constantine is a masterpiece opening a new chapter in a rather sterile dark ambient genre.

BDNX002: Sadomodernism LP by Osheyack   Eli Osheyack is an American musician, that lives and works in Shanghai, China. His serialist, deconstructive compositions derive from his involvement with punk, no wave and industrial music. He collaborates with installation artists, choreographers, filmmakers and fashion designers.   BDNX002   Sadomodernism  was his first release on Bedouin Records.  Sadomodernism  is a technical term in film theory that describes the intended sadistic voyeurism of the viewer. Osheyacks work on this album is sadomodernistic, as it assigns common musical motives to a concrete composition. The recipient creates autonomously a permeable soundtrack that naturalizes and synthesizes his references to the musical motives. His deconstruction alienates the common reference from the self. This process also derives from Osheyacks discussion on the Brechtchian alienation effect.  Shanghai-based multimedia artist Dre Romero made a music video for  Bordertown,  which is the 8th track of the album.  Selected Press: ` Bangers like these won't have the crowd screaming in pain so much as screaming for more.`   Resident Advisor   ‘ Here is an album by an artist which is almost cinematic by nature and design.
