Conrad Schnitzler was a legendary electronic music composer who passed away in 2011.

[Music] Nadah El Shazly – Ahwar

Singer and composer Nadah El Shazly apparently began her career in a punk rock band doing Misfits covers. She’s come a long way, creating an eerie work with references to experimental music and musique concrète, with a nod to French composers of the INA-GRM tradition.

Sonologyst is no stranger to this blog. Raffaele Pezzella, Mr. Sonologyst himself, brings a new release (also available on vinyl!) of dark ambient inspired by conspiracy theories.

He has to be one of the hardest working men in experimental music (and perhaps in music in general, given the breadth of his work, running a label, DJing, et cetera).
