Olivier Alary * Selffish

Sellfish

On ‘Fiction – Non-Fiction’, Olivier Alary presents a multi-faceted overview of his recent soundtrack compositions – with a special unreleased track called ‘Discipline’ as additional bonus listening on Ambientblog.

Next to that, Selffish (yes: two ff’s) presents his new album on the Serein label, which is every bit as beautiful as you’ve come to expect from this label’s output.

Michel Banabila + Maarten Vos

Banabila Sound Years

Michel Banabila and Maarten Vos perform the soundtrack for Conny Janssen’s dance production “Home”….

Banabila also released a (vinyl) compilation called “Sound Years” (and gives away three download codes to commenters on this post!)

Gideon Wolf – Year Zero

Gideon Wolf Slow

Year Zero is Gideon Wolf’s 4th album since 2012. It’s a solo album, in a way, but it could not have come to life without the contributions of a small ensemble of artists that played improvisations or ‘incoherent and strange phrases/notes’ that were later reassembled into the resulting pieces.

Working the other way around – composing pieces from instantaneous improvisations and a collection of short phrases – has given this music a refreshing element of surprise.
And it’s exactly that element that makes this album stand out among many others.
