Opfer is a new project by Dutch artist Ian Martin and Belgian Artist Sebastien Crusener and Monument is their first album. Ian Martin needs no introduction to fans of adventurous electronic music. His versatile style allowed him to release on illustrious labels such as Bunker, Abstract Forms or Further Records. Sebastien Crusener has provided all source material in form of field recordings for their project and Ian modelled an abstract, minimal and dark ambient album that showcases a bleakness and almost disturbing coldness but yet makes you feel safely encapsulated in a world of comfort and strange beauty. Additionally Sebastien has kindly provided some wonderful poetry that gives you more insight into the world of Opfer. Dark ambient at it's best.
150 manufactured hand numbered CD’s in slim line dvd case. The first 100 copies include a limited sheet with poetry by Sebastien Crusener.
Digital release to follow 5-6 weeks after initial release.

Hi Julio,

thank you, I absolutely agree with you....
And believe it or not, but I don't like doing promotional work at all, I still think that the music should do the talking but I am afraid I have no choice but to do this.
It is unbelievably hard to get any attention and I need to sell a certain amount of copies to keep this label alive. I'm not in it for the money (the limitations of the releases should speak for this) but I also want to reach as much people as I can because I believe in this music and I feel sad when the artists I feature don't get the deserved attention....

As to come back to your question regarding digital, all the "standard" diametric. releases are available digitally at the usual places, the tapes are not. When you buy the tapes you get a download of the music after checkout in the diametric. shop.

Be my friend in Exile will release this on his Bandcamp page sooner or later....


Thank you for your interest....

Cheers, Arne

Okay, I understand what you mean.
But how can small independent labels make listeners aware of their new releases if not through forums and posts?
In this day and age it is impossible to get any attention if you don't do this.... and even so, we are talking about a piece of music in an edition of 50 tapes, certainly I can't be accused of milking the cow and trying to make any cash with that? I simply want to share the music I love and release....
How else am I going to do this?
Maybe I don't have much to say about other topics in this forum, that doesn't mean I don't care....
 ;)

Be my Friend in Exile is Miguel Gomes from London. He has released on Somehow Records and Twice Removed Records and his third release landed at diametric. towers earlier this year and was instantly a favourite listening experience, so it is with pleasure to present you his work. The track titles already give you an idea how this mini album sounds like but only tell half the story. Haunting, menacing and obviously dark and even a little bit morbid, but underneath all this bleak ambience lies a fragile beauty in form of exquisite melodies and sounds that shimmer through the sometimes harsh noisy layers of sound. Dark ambient at its best.
Limited and hand numbered to 50x C34 cassette tapes, incl. digital download, provided with purchase of the tape through the diametric. webstore. Tapes will only be available through the diametric. webstore and Interstellar Sounds exclusively. Download only included with purchase in the diametric. webstore.

Ambient musician Pete Burton is a multi-instrumentalist with a clear ethos about his music. For him, a feeling of immediate spontaneity is born from the degree of improvisation involved. You can clearly hear this on his debut album "objects of mind". Hailing from Glasgow Pete has delivered a magnificent and beautiful multi layered album that can be perfectly described as a soundtrack-esque drama in 10 acts. His influences from bands such as Popol Vuh are clearly present and Pete played all the instruments on this album such as synths, guitar, bass, kalimba and various percussion instruments in long improvised live takes and sculpted his gorgeous music to an incredible album. Welcome to the diametric family Pete, we are glad to have you on board!

This is what Mick Chillage has to say about his mix:

When Arne approached me in early Autumn of 2013 to do a mix for his podcast series I had initially thought of doing something with an Autumn/Winter theme to suit the cold and dark days that were slowly approaching us but when I started compiling the music selections mainly from my CD album collection I felt why put restrictions on the mix and felt it would be better to approach the mix like when I make music, I usually letting the sounds inspire me rather than setting out with a preconceived idea on what the music should be.
So with a pile of CD's from 2013 I randomly pulled tracks that I felt were some of the best moments from 2013 plus ones that would show a diversity and how ambient music has developed at fusing elements of classical, Avant-garde, Jazz folk etc rather than the cliched rippling water and drug referenced dialogue samples of yesteryear.
I hope you Enjoy and maybe find some great new music in the process!

Valanx returns with the second album on diametric. and Arne Weinberg’s project streamlines
the minimalistic approach of the darker aspects of electronic music even more on “ejecta”.
The album continues where “xenolith” from 2012 left off. The focus is set on eerie, cinematic
and brooding atmospheres with slow pulsating, often tribalistic rhythms and dark electronic
sounds. There is an eastern influence to be found in some of the tracks on “ejecta”, and
sampling has played an important role in the creation of the music. For best sonic
satisfaction listen with headphones in a dark room; the album delivers the soundtrack for the
film in your mind. And remember, there is no light without darkness. 200 limited
manufactured CD’s in a slim line DVD case. The album will be followed by a remix 12”
featuring ADMX-71 (Adam X), The Exaltics, CRC (one half of Morphology) and Louis
Haiman.
No digital distribution.

Diametric. proudly launches its tape series with this first cassette release by Isomorphic.

released the critically acclaimed 12” “Apoapsis EP” on the main diametric. venture.

based on modular synthesis excursions that John conceived in his studio. This electronic
adventure is split in various interwoven parts and takes you on a trip through space and in

beautifully crafted soundscapes and atmospheres.
