The warm, soft voice of Anne Garner guides you into (and out of) a dreamy hour of sounds also including Nils Frahm, Bruno Sanfilippo, Leonardo Rosado, Michel Banabila, Söll, Yamaoka, Aes Dana, Miktek and Fabio Perletta.
Visiting sacred spaces with Giulio Aldinucci, the spaces in-between with Arovane and Hior Chronik, a minimalist collaboration by Jeremy Young and Aaron Martin, and finally ending up in a strange ‘Cävv’ from Portugal! … Read More →
On Jump Cuts, Banabila presents a return-to-style to the music that bears his unique personal trademark.
The kind of patchwork sounds he created for previous albums like Voiznoiz and Precious Images – the kind of music that also perfectly fits theatre, dance, documentary or movies soundtracks. … Read More →
With her previous releases, Anne Garner has secured a very special place, right in the middle of the area where indie folk, singer-songwriter and ambient music overlap.
On Be Life, her latest collaboraton with James Murray, Anne’s otherworldy vocals are even more intense and intimate than before.
This is shamelessly romantic music … as reassuring as a new-found love! … Read More →
Introducing modern classical ambience by Pleq & OfftheSky and The Frozen Vaults, music connecting primary colors to primary locations by Darren McClure, and music to contemplate the beauty of nature by from Fabio Perletta … Read More →
Though the album is presented as if it were a remix-album (and in fact it also ís), the basic track is not taken from a previous release from Bruno Sanfilippo‘s extensive discography.
The title track and opener of Upon Contact Reworked is a new composition which is the basis for further reworks, reconstructions and remixes by different artists. … Read More →
The DreamScenes selection for this month features exciting (and sometimes mysterious) music from Norn, Glass Candy, Banabila/Machinefabriek, Heezen, Mathias Delplanque, Cello + Laptop, Veroníque Vaka, Andrew Weathers Ensemble, Ben Salisbury/Geoff Barrow, Darren McClure/Jose Soberanos, Todd Tobias, Macheteoxidado and Anne Garner. … Read More →
Jean-Paul Dessy (1963) is a Belgian composer with an impressive track record.
One that is clearly not afraid to cross borders into unknown territories: he has a distinct personal style of composing, which is quite different from other contemporary modern classical composers that often choose the romantic ‘cinematographic’ style. His work is dramatic, extremely dynamic – a roller coaster ride of conflicting emotions.
This is neither classical music as-we-know-it, nor is it rock music disguised as a symphony.
It’s not simply following the current ‘hip and happening’ post-classical style, but completely unique and personal. … Read More →
Multicast Dynamics‘s Scape and Aquatic System are the first half of a quadrilogy that will be completed with another two albums later.
The album series move from an evolutionary to a cosmological scale: starting from dry land filled with light and streams, to the constantly changing surface of the oceans, into a frozen and murky underwater world, finally up to the arrival in an interstellar space and the cosmos.
This first half of the full project set a high bar for the remaining two releases of the series, but I am really very confident that this set will become a landmark in conceptual environmental ambient music. … Read More →
After walking with Alessio Ballerini through the region of Marche, Italy, we take a detour via outer space listening to Opollo and Sphäre Sechs, to finally land in Mexico feeling the winds from the mountains with Macheteoxidado. … Read More →
Two beautifully dark releases by Haarvöl and Norn, deep droning soundscapes from Ionosphere to help you watch the world pass into endless night – and finally Elian‘s razor sharp electronic noisescapes as a counterpoint to the preceding quiescence…. … Read More →
It’s probably best to keep awake and try not to fall asleep to the dreamy ambience of this month’s DreamScenes selection.
Because if you do, you’ll miss the rather weird operatic intermissions by We Like We and the timeless deconstruction of Irish Airs by Fovea Hex.
And the very special – and possibly somewhat unexpeced – track from Efrén Lopéz, of which the chours is the cry of alarm that the Cathars used in the 12th century: “A…E…I…O..U!!!” … Read More →
