Mzungu sheds a different light of the four seasons, while Bionulor recycles fragments of Alexander Scriabin.
Post-classical music from Clarice Jensen (for cello and electronics) and Joana Gama & Luís Fernandes (for piano, electronics and orchestra).
The Pitch & Splitter Orchestra demonstrate how a ‘frozen orchestra’ might sound.
Number 4 in the continuing series of Christina Vantzou‘s solo (or better: collaboration) albums, and more ‘beauty in stillness’ by Gray Acres (Andrew and Michael Tasselmeyer)
“Paths” is the follow-up to Olan Mill‘s debut release “Pine” (released in 2010 on the Serein label).
Their second release (now on Facture) continues to explore their “unashamedly romantic music”, with a well-merged blend of violin, pipe organ and processed guitar.
Olan Mill‘s sound is somewhat comparable to the sound of the Stars of the Lid and A Winged Victory for the Sullen and will definitely appeal to the same audience.
In 2008, no-one knew what to expect from this “Bersarin Quartett” and, although it received unmatched critical acclaim, it has always been somewhat below the radar – a “cult” release that still deserves to find a much larger audience.
(Don’t worry: it is still available as CD or digital download. A special limited 2 x 12″ vinyl picture disc edition can also be pre-ordered!)
Four years later, suddenly there’s the follow up, the ‘difficult second album’ – simply named “II“.
The big difference: this time we’re prepared!
There’s not very much information about this duo, apart from the fact that both are using “acoustic and electronic recording techniques to produce an ambient sound world in which traditional instrumentation combines with contemporary soundscapes.”
In fact that sums up Lament perfectly well, too.
