[Fbl026] Sun Hammer - Fors


FeedbackLoop Label proudly presents you Sun Hammer with his release Fors.

The two pieces on Fors are the results of explorations into generative and randomized looping and granular time-stretching algorithms. Both are based entirely upon short pieces of audio recorded outdoors in Ann Arbor, MI and Portland, OR. The first was made as an attempt at "ambient" music, suitable for quiet office listening; the second to commemorate a young friend's sixth birthday.

Sun Hammer is a North American sound artist who loves eating sweets but restricts his intake with a weekends-only limit, adores mainstream rap, utilizes bass for its healing properties, and identifies as an Enneagram Type Five. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

[FbL026] Sun Hammer coming in March

Dear FbL listeners,

There will be a last release at FeedbackLoop Label by Sun Hammer. It will be released in the beginning of March. It will be yet another marvelous release and I think it will be a perfect fit to end the series.

Check out is work here:

I am not sure if after this FbL will ever get back, but if not it has been a marvelous experience to work with several musicians. And I would like to thank them all for helping make this what I think is a good sample of passionate music. I would also like to thank all the listeners of the music released at FbL, and above all to all collaborators that helped making this the best experience that can be offered.

Until March, enjoy your life.

hiatus again

unfortunately due to the huge amount of work I have all FbL activities will have to be on hold.

thank you everyone who sent me demos, and sorry for the lack of reply, but it has been proven impossible, and I prefer to set you free to look for other labels where you can release your work.

until I am sure again that I can commit fully this site will be on hold.

thank you

My latest ep A Long White Sleep was released 2 weeks ago at Laverna
Available as Free Download here:

Meanwhile I also took the liberty of providing my earlier album The Blue Nature of Everyday in a Pay What You Want scheme, starting from free until the end of the month.

Both albums are part of an ongoing series I am making on my personal reflections about the colors and how I can portray them in sounds.

resuming activities

FeedbackLoop Label will now be able to start receiving demos for possible release. The aim is to release once every two month starting in January 2013.

If you are interested, send a link with your demo to our email and please introduce yourself and describe a little bit your work.

As you might be aware, FbL releases mostly experimental / drone / ambient / electroacoustic genres but if your music has an oneiric like feeling you will surely be very welcome. Also think about Surrealism, Expressionism, Impressionism, Cubism, Futurism, and all marvelous isms art forms, and you will probably be very welcome :)

[FbL025] Papelli - Wolf and Butterfly


The 25th release at FeedbackLoop is a bit of a departure from the latest releases. In here, Papelli present a beautiful oneiric album where guitar and voice intertwine to take you on a trip to the east.

FeedbackLoop Label will be entering an hiatus due to some changes in my life and hopefully (as soon as I am set in my new life) will comeback in the beginning of 2013. In the meantime, enjoy this very beautiful release. See you on the other side and thank you to every musician, listener, music lover that in someway crossed my path this last 3 years.

some news before the hiatus

FeedbackLoop Label will be releasing a new edition until the end of the month, so please stay tuned.

In the meantime, the sixth release at Heart and Soul Publishers (our sister label) is now available. It is a beautiful long form drone piece made by Porya Hatami and Darren Harper in collaboration for their ongoing series called Tales of Seven from Distant Shore. Enjoy!

Activities at FeedbackLoop and Heart and Soul will be on a hiatus until further notice (probably they will only be resumed in 2013, but it is too soon to tell) due to some important changes in my life.

Support Vitor Joaquim

Support Vitor Joaquim creating his new album Geography. Go here:

After his latest cd “Filament”, considered by the Indie Rock Mag as one of the best Drone/Ambient records of the year, Vitor Joaquim is now preparing his new cd “Geography”. Like the previous edition, “Geography” is also released by Kvitnu, the acclaimed Ukrainian label. Like "Filament", this cd will also be published by Ukrainian Kvitnu, counting on with the collaboration of Luis Dourado on graphics, and with sound contributions from Simon Fisher Turner, Carlos Zingaro, Ulrich Mitzlaff and Nuno Rebelo, among others. The output will be scheduled for late September 2012.

Luis Dourado, Portuguese visual and graphic artist based in Porto, is taking care of the cover and is also producing a very special artwork to be included on Geography. It’s a piece in itself that in a certain metaphorical point of view can also be seen as a sound road map for the cd. The theme of the cd is related with the thesis of geographical determinism presented by Jared Diamond in his book “Guns, Germs, and Steel”. Basically, it says that geographical localization is fundamental in the determination and development of all human cultures across the globe. This idea was studied and analysed over tens of years through direct contact in all continents, and is systematically expressed in this fantastic book. So, indirectly, this cd is also a homage to Mr. Diamond and the tenacity that he showed in the study of such a profound and serious subject: The study of humans in the form of “a short history of everybody for the last 13,000 years”. Searching for an explanation to so much cargo...

Basically, the project is intended:
- to support the design, production and release of the CD, specially with regards to the complexity of the printed graphics, given the dimensions of the detachable printed material, and the quality of the printing paper that we want to use. Since we are looking for a very special texture, we do not want to risk the fragility of the folds that are needed to compact the piece;
- to cover some traveling costs that are necessary;
- the preparation of the show that corresponds to it;
- delivery costs of orders (contributors of this project, journalists, cultural programmers, etc.).
- cover the costs of the rewards (cd’s, booklet printing, creating and printing a series of 10 original pieces of Luis Dourado);
- finally, to repay Luis Dourado for his artwork, as well as to finance the 10 limited pieces.

[FbL.rec023] Derek Piotr

FbL would like to suggest the new Derek Piotr album. Derek recently released with us a remix album and he has a new release called Airing. Enjoy!


This was a marvelous project pursued during 4 years. It had the main intention of providing listeners pleasure and tribute to the artist.

Available music in the web is a marvelous world to uncover. There are netlabels and record labels for all genres and you can find out there everything. Go and find them out.
