Sven Laux * Dead Melodies

Schachmatt

Schachmatt

SVEN LAUX – SCHACHMATT

Last year’s Paper Streets on the Dronarivm label was probably the first encounter with the music of Sven Laux for many listeners (myself included). But Laux has created music since 2003, and his discography extends to no less than nine albums, more than 25 singles & EP’s, and numerous appearances on compilations. So there’s a back catalogue to check out!
But before going back in time it’s best to stay in the present with this new album Schachmatt (‘checkmate’) on Whitelabrecs, Harry Towell’s limited editions label. (‘Limited’ meaning: the physical edition has already sold out by now). Here, Sven Laux further explores his ambient paths, with lush orchestral pad arrangements and a widescreen production.

Each track bears the name of a different chess player (Fisher, Spasski, Karpow, etc.): the inspiration for this album came from watching a movie about chess (it remains unknown which movie exactly), where each player had a different strategy. This is reflected in the tracks, “each one playing out along a different path, each with its own characteristics or game plan, if you will”.
This does nót mean that the tracks are completely different. On the contrary – they are a perfect match together.
After all, even when high-level chess players have a completely different strategy and follow a different path, in the end they all play within the set of rules of the game called Chess.
The same is true for Laux’ music on Schachmatt.


DeadMelodies

DEAD MELODIES – THE FOUNDATIONS OF RUIN  Also on Spotify

Exactly one year after Legends Of The Wood, Dead Melodies release their second album for the Cryo Chamber label. Or maybe ‘his’, since it’s only one person: Tom Moore from the UK. And it’s the second release for Cryo Chamber, but the fourth full length release (in two years).
From Cryo Chamber we’ve come to expect the darkest of the dark ambient, always with a widely cinematic production.  The Foundations of Ruin opens with a somewhat classical piano piece, but in the second track the music and atmosphere takes a spooky turn. After all, the narrative of this album is that “we are exploring the ghostly ruins of a once stately manor”.

“Something definitely feels wrong here, but with hours till dawn and the relentless storm wailing through the surrounding trees, the will to survive the night defeats all reason to fear this shady forgotten sanctuary.”

With its ghostly piano hidden in thick layers of fog, this music is as chilling as a captivating ghost story or a frightening game soundtrack. You do not need much imagination to almost notice the temperature drop a few degrees and to “feel a familiar chill running down your spine.”

DreamScenes – April 2018

DreamScenes CZ

Winter Morning
It’s cauld – it’s dark – through the dread waste
Yon starn, sae red, and sma,
Presses its weak, encumberd, beam,
To perish in the sna’.

Och! Och! it’s mirk – the furious storm,
Howls round the hill sae high;
And black, and awfu’, on the earth,
Sits down the laiden sky.
[Robert Couper, 1804]

It was never my intention beforehand to let this edition get as dark and cold as this. But even at the beginning of this Spring season the tracks for this April edition only seem to refer to the past Winter season:
melancholic cello music to start with, then venturing into the (extremely cold and mystical) Siberian steppes –  some feverish scenes of incomprehensible muttering – psychedelic/nightmare-ish visions…
But, as there is beauty in darkness, there’s much to enjoy. Especially knowing we can always “crawl back into our cocoons…”

No Stars (Mix)

No Stars

I know, I know – it’s a bit risky to use a cheesy teenage love song as the title track of an otherwise fairly dark ambient mix. Even if the song is taken from the Twin Peaks 2017 soundtrack. Some listeners probably won’t get past it – and if they quit at that point, they’ll miss the 40 minutes of associative transitions in the rest of the mix.
But I personally really love the juxtaposition of this dreamy love song between the feverish mumbling of David Sylvian and Jóhann Jóhannsson’s track merging into the almost frightening climax of Stefan Wesolowski.
To quote Woody Brown (the ‘industry expert of mixing’): “use your ears, not your prejudices”!

But, jokes aside, this ís a serious mix. With the occasional exception, most of the music in this mix is heavily mutilated: the original tracks are cut-up, shortened, fragmented, edited – often using only a fragment from a track that originally is much longer. A collage like this takes the sound out of its original context to serve its own purpose. That is not meant disrespectful, please let me emphasize this again… (I hope you can hear that in the result!)
Be sure to check out the original sources if you enjoy the sounds – you can find the details it in the tracklist below.

Now, follow me into a movie that you might wanna see sometime… a movie that’s happening in the back of your own head…

 

“Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky (Ryuichi Sakamoto – Full Moon intro)

Edit June 19, 2018:
I’m very happy that the wonderful Headphone Commute has now re-published No Stars which means it’ll get much more listeners now. Find it [HERE]

DreamScenes – March 2018

DreamScenes CZ

The March edition of DreamScenes is a mixed bag of styles: two versions of the classic Eno track ‘Julie With…’ before diving into deeper abstract waters, minimal church organ music, post-modern classical tracks as well as experimental electronics.

And after the storm
I went down to the basement
and everything was floating
lots of my old keyboards
thirty projectors
props from old performances
a fiberglass plane
a motorcycle
countless papers
and books
and I looked at them floating there in the shiny dark water
dissolving
all the things I’d carefully saved all my life
becoming nothing but junk
and I thought
how beautiful
how magic
and how catastrophic
Laurie Anderson – Everything Is Floating

Sava Marinkovic * Hannu Karjalainen * Toàn

Karjalainen

Sava Marinkovic

SAVA MARINKOVIC – THROUGH THE AIR

Sava Marinković is a musician from Serbia. He plays guitar in various bands and projects, but on his solo albums he has developed an ‘experimental approach to ambient music and free improvisation and minimalism’.
Marinkovic‘s Bandcamp page 
shows three album titles, but there’s at least one other released by the DOF label in 2013 (Evocation, mentioned here).

Actually not much more than these simple facts is known; the album did not come with any information and the Bandcamp page doesn’t tell us much more details either.
Which means it’s just the music that counts: the album has to speak for itself.

And it does so convincingly: in the five tracks (34 minutes) Sava creates lush images of deep  ambient sounds of the warmest kind. Each track slightly different in nature but all fit together perfectly.
The guitar may be his main instrument, but it’s definitely not the only one used to create this atmosphere.
Just surrender yourself to this music and you’ll probably soon feel like floating through the air.
(Digital Only)


Karjalainen

HANNU KARJALAINEN – A HANDFUL OF DUST IS A DESERT

Some artists release three or more album in one year. Hannu Karjalainen is not one of them: this is his third full album since 2007’s Worms In My Piano and 2009’s Hintergarten (which were released as Hannu, without his last name).
At other moments, the Finnish composer worked with  Simon ‘Slowdive’ Scott, Monolyth & Cobalt Chris ‘Dakota Suite’ Hooson (remember The End of Trying?).
Chris Hooson co-composed the track Love Is A Black Lion, which features a sample from The End Of Trying (Part III). 

Karjalainen‘s music “draws inspiration from ambient, drone, modern classical and dream pop.” The sound of his music is widescreen cinematic, which is not a real surprise since he’s a filmmaker also. From the multilayered piano loops in the short title track to the pop-ambient of A Year In A Day, the sad nostalgic melancholy of Love Is A Black Lion and the yearning vocal loops and threatening pulses in the closing track Breaks My Heart She Aria: this album covers many evocative styles.

“This is the kind of desert you won’t mind getting lost in and even take pleasure in roaming through the expansive sonic landscapes and horizons it embodies.”


Histos Lusis

TOÀN – HISTÓS LUSIS

Anthony Elfort is a French musician currently living in Britain. His name was unknown to me until now: according to the bio he’s a “beatmaker who has produced several albums mixing jazz and hip hop influences”. So maybe some of you know the work he released as Qiwu Selftet.

As Toàn, he focuses on a different kind of music: a sort of free-form mix of ambient and modern classical. All tracks for this album were composed in Angoulême and Cruguel, France. One can only wonder the influence of the location of the music, which is intensely atmospheric, as can be demonstrated with this video of Post Tenebras:

 

The video is assembled from “excerpts of various documentaries”, just like the tracks are composed using “samples found on old records, live instruments and field recordings”.
All of the parts carefully assembled into a unique style – a delicate balance of electronics, modern classical and  acoustic world music.
