Soundtrack for ‘Manta Ray’ created by Mathieu Gabry and Christine Ott (Snowdrops), and Nachtmuziek (Night Music) from Bernard ‘Sonmi451’ Zwijzen.
Corey Fuller’s ‘Break’ addresses ‘the universality of human struggle’ in a highly emotional album. Anonymous artist Glåsbird creates a soundtrack for an imaginary film about Greenland.
‘Wise Words… Wild Words… D’You See’ – DreamScenes – March 2019
Different kinds of cinematic: Tom Hodge and Franz Kirmann‘s score for ‘The Man Behind The Microphone’. Harnes Kretzer‘s Black Noise is not a movie soundtrack but it could very well have been one.
Dark and suspenseful drones, gritty noise and orchestral choir arrangements present inescapable dystopic -but fascinating- views on current times.
Aaron Martin‘s soundtracks for ‘Touch Dissolves’ (a photo book by Yusuf Sevinçli), and for William Armstrong’s award winning short documentary ‘Adam’.
Two cassette releases by Celer (one with Forest Management) – both are sold out but can still be enjoyed!
Ánd a brand-new feeling rerelease from two hard to find releases by Yui Onodera.
‘Sleep Stations’ is a short EP continuation of From The Mouth of The Sun‘s ‘Hymn Binding’ release in 2017. Erik K. Skodvin and Rauelsson team up to create a spellbinding movie soundtrack for “Darling”
I could easily fill all of this blog with Machinefabriek/Rutger Zuydervelt releases. Blink twice and the release pages (solo/collaborations) will probably be updated with a new title.
Time for a roundup of some recent releases…
An alternative soundscape to ‘Festen’ by Manos Milonakis * From The Mouth Of The Sun‘s third album ‘Hymn Binding’ * Two albums full of ‘piano-focused tenderness’ by Jason van Wyk
A soundtrack (Saro), an imaginary soundtrack (Sleepers Fate), and somewhat unorthodox use of an accordion (Accordion Sessions)!
A Requiem for people about to die in a plane crash, the original Twin Peaks soundscapes by Dean Hurley; and near-silent Deflections by Asmus Tietchens and Fabio Perletta
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 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!)
Soundtracks are hot. And quite a lot of them border on ‘ambient’ music because of their inherent atmospherics. Or on ‘post-classical’ music because of their instrumental arrangements.
‘The Revenant’ combines the best of both worlds!
Different kinds of “Landscape Music” from three duo’s and one ensemble.
With releases from From The Mouth Of The Sun (Aaron Martin and Dag Rosenqvist), Christina Vantzou, Mark Lyken & Emma Dove, and Jón Ólafsson & Futuregrapher.
Drones, soundtracks and atmospheric sketches for the changing seasons…. with new music from Inner Vision Laboratory, Strom Noir, OfftheSky, Atrium Carceri and Colbets
The music of “Sacred Ground” is created for a documentary film (by Tim Grünewald and Ludwig Schmidtpeter) about the Wounded Knee and Mount Rushmore memorial sites in South Dakota:
“Two memorials in the heart of America. Two hours’ drive but worlds apart. Mount Rushmore is an icon of the United States, attracting millions of visitors each year. The Wounded Knee Massacre Site receives just a handful of visitors each day.”
It is also inspired by (and dedicated to) Florian Fricke, who created soundtracks with Popol Vuh for many Werner Herzog movies.
