homework – year 5

for the fifth time, here’s our yearly digital-only compilation gathering unreleased 2020 tracks from most of the artists who had a release on taâlem in its 19 years of existence (we even have an extra artist whose release will only be out in 2021).

“homework – year 5” is more massive than ever. no less than 76 tracks for 12 hours and 40 minutes of aural delight, with a bonus video and the pdf booklet.

ambient, drone, field recordings, guitar-based tracks, noise, dark ambient, experimental, modular synth, tribal/ritual… it’s impossible not to find at least one track that will please you.

so please dive in!

as usual, massive thanks to all the contributing artists for their trust and fidelity. taâlem wouldn’t exist without their exquisite sonic creations. and equal massive thanks to you, listeners and buyers.

previous editions are of course still available:
