Within the scope of the sublabel plateAudio, msdm has created a platform for the release of sound work by artists from varied backgrounds, from visual arts, electronic music, and dj to activism, all oriented towards the creation of experimental sound environments, by the use of digital sampling, web streaming, pirate radio, avant-pop & latin click-hop.
For the project SATURDAY / Broad Cast ( Cubitt , london, may 25th) the sound pieces will be presented within a modular space where the audio files will be available for free play by the visitor. It will coincide with the first phase of the project, and the launch of 5 projects by artists and musicians: paula roush , pelado, Šinhabit (janine & leif rostron-liebenshtz), sally chapman and simon richardson and sasha costanza-chock.

/splice produced an audio voyage through the 'comunidades especiales' or low-income neighborhoods of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The premise, a search: the city-body is ill; the remedies lie in the barrios that are its true heart and soul. The production involved dozens of children, teenagers, and young adults from ten different areas of the city in the creation of audio pieces that range from found sound collage to hard hip-hop, reggaeton (puertorican dancehall) to acapella poetry. A CD including all pieces was pressed and distributed free to all workshop participants and community centers. A selection is being re-issued now for msdm.
Šinhabit : bullettotal time: 23m , composed and produced: janine & leif, Šinhabit Berlin, published: msdm/ plateAudio
Bullet is a 23 minute track written and performed by Janine & Leif, recorded by Šinhabit Berlin. The composition of Bullet references the lonely western song of guitar and vocals, and through the use of electronics its structure and sound mutates into a melancholic song of contemporary conflict.
Šinhabit is a cultural production label that initiates cultural projects and productions. Through a cross-over philosophy Šinhabit promotes and produces New Music, POP (political orientated projects), FATe-fashion and "eclectic dialogs" with independent cultural actors.
