Three compilations: the Salaam for Yemen charity compilation (Hiberbate/Dronarivm), Eilean’s #92 with exclusive tracks, and Pop Ambient 2019 curated by Wolfgang Voigt.
Various artists explore the Fessman Sound Stones * Eiléan and Dauw present musical soulmates in various combinations.
Presenting The Prairie Lines’ ‘Today Leap and Stop Time’ and James A. McDermid‘s ‘Tonal Glints’
Silent Vigils create music best enjoyed when awake at times usually spent asleep *** Ian Hawgood performs on his childhood piano, using old disused reel to reel recorders and an array of vintage synths.
The wind comes from the North, and it is a cold wind.
This is a clear warning that we have to be careful, take action, and take care to preserve the nature that we will miss when it is gone forever.
Plus: Michel Banabila’s ‘Just Above The Surface’
Andrew Heath’s ‘lower case music’ (Soundings);
Sonmi451 takes his place on the imaginary map (Panta Rei);
Sven Laux’ virtual orchestra (Paper Streets)
With his impressive back catalogue, Monty Adkins has become one of my favourite artist.
So it’s great news when TWO new albums are released almost simultaneously!
Autistici (David Newman) and Justin Varis present eight ‘synaesthetic’ interpretations of various colours.
They are completed with another eight remixes from different artists that seem put the colours in the perspective of their surrounding landscapes.
Together, these two cd’s are a truely caleidoscopic collection!
A few compilations to start the year with: well- and lesserknown artists, a lot of unreleased material, and most of them offered as a free download too!
In recent years it is not uncommon that artists work together without meeting each other in real life. On-Line collaboration is a common working method: sending work-in-progress to each other until it’s ready.
But as far as I know, two labels collaborating together in this way – matching their artists to work in duos on a collaboration track – has not been done before.
Dialog Tapes, released by Eilean Records and Dauw proves that the sum can indeed be much greater than the sum of its parts.
