From now on please contact Rachael at Dissonant Bookings here, for any booking requests. Also, we’ve announced a few new shows - Köln & Paris : here we come!


We’re very proud to announce that we’ll be going on a small tour in Japan and Korea next week : for both of us it’ll be the first time in Asia. Exact dates can be found in the Live section.


“Transmissions from Revarsavr” was released a few days ago, and already there’s some very enthusiastic reviews coming in. You can read them in the press section. We have a few new shows announced in the UK in Switzerland - see the Live section.


We’re very happy to announce that we’ll be releasing a new album on Opal Tapes on January 22nd. The album’s entitled “Transmissions from Revarsavr” and continues the work we started with Vladimir Popov’s Noise Machines on 2014’s “Eavesdropping on pianists” EP for Eat Concrete. More info soon!


Big News : our new album “Mnemosyne” will be released on september 4th on Luke Younger’s (aka Helm) Alter label! Previews can be found at the Alter Soundcloud page.

Finally, after starting the work on this music about 3 years ago at the WORM studios in Rotterdam, this album will see the light of day in a few days. Norman Records has described it as “Detailed electro-acoustic sound caverns”, The Wire called us “architects of post-industrial dislocation”  and the always-poetic Boomkat review mentions that Lumisokea’s : “ finding their way in the dark between thickets of inorganic noise; semi-artificial ambient tones and sub-bass detonations”.

You can order the album here and here. It’ll also be available at the usual retailers like Boomkat, Bleep and Juno Records.


We’ve got some really great shows coming up this spring,  including none other than Mutek Montréal!

Check the live section for a full overview.


Before ending this roller coaster year we have a great announcement to make : we’ve joined DISK CTM Agency in Berlin for our bookings, joing the likes of Thomas Köner; Moon Wheel, Cyclobe and Suicideyear. Contact Simon Wojan for more info.


“Eavesdropping on Pianists”, our new EP on Eat Concrete, was released today and is available on our bandcamp page!

This digital-only EP entitled “Eavesdropping on Pianists” will be released on july 1st, and will be available directly from us via the Lumisokea bandcamp and on the Eat Concrete website. It’s quite a special project : the tracks are developed from recordings we made of unique acoustic “Noise Instruments”, designed in the 1920’s by a Russian inventor called Vladimir Popov.

Next weekend we’re off to Vienna and the Golden Pudel in Hamburg, after which we’ll be heading back to the studio again, delving deeper into the rhythmic developments we’ve started to mine with Apophenia.


We’ve contributed at track to a compilation released by the US-based label “Crash Symbols”. The track is called “Nelja”, other artists featured on this monster-compilation are (among others) Charlatan & the Cyclist. It’s a pay-what-you-want download, so get it here.
