heklAa  Profile

[ heklAa ] is a 37 years old French composer, influenced by post-rock, jazz and movie-music. His musical project is called [ heklAa ], Songs in F is his first self-produced EP. The 4 tracks talk about my trip in Iceland in April 2010, as he was stuck “thanks to” the eruption of the with-the-unpronounceable-name volcano. He is also working on his first album “My Name is John Murdoch”, inspired by the best movie ever “Dark City”.

heklAa – My Name Is John Murdoch
Release Date 31st OCTOBER 2014
All songs are composed, arranged and produced by heklAa.
Recorded in the (home) studio “am Tanzplatz”, Ingersheim, France
THIS ALBUM IS FULLY / UTTERLY INSPIRED BY THE MOVIE [ DARK CITY ]

REVIEW

heklAa’s newest title [ My Name Is John Murdoch ] which is the follow-up album of [ Songs In F ] disentangled an artistic rhymes colliding with post-classical universe in an explosive manner. Strangely different, yet aggressively beautiful with piano keys administering the record’s melodic groundwork all the way, this new title is about to find a special place in every listeners heart. I usually don’t say the following on albums that come my way for reviews but this new release reflect so much to being exactly what I look for in an album that it makes it difficult for me to review. I am so overwhelmed with its beauty and its shining facets that the sound literally takes my focus away from writing. That’s how gorgeous [ My Name Is John Murdoch ] is.

The most compensating and refreshing part of heklAa’s work on this new release is the integration-flow in which he assembles various conventional and unconventional sounds all together. Yes… while most of the part, the artist focusses on seductive background piano keys and by that I am referring to the dark one’s, coupled with long and constant rhythmic guitars on the front-end with echoing drums and crashing waves, reminiscent to the likes of [ Mamiffer ] and [ Cicada ] at the same time, HeklAa’s sound brings a myriad of emotions in one spot.

This new album attribute so much in terms of sound and atmospheres, themes and colours, emotions and tonalities that it intersects a place where fans of [ Seskamol ], [ The Best Pessimist ], [ Line Gate ] and even extremist minded [ Godspeed You! Black Emperor ] and [ 65DOS ] fans will all enjoy. The music is dramatic, epic, melancholy and it contain a bit for everyone. [ My Name Is John Murdoch ] circled around 9 songs, the album opens up with an intro-like piece cleverly title “Générique” and end’s with “Epilogue”, in between there’s seven track in the form of an episode each. Perfect arrangement, must I add.

So guys be ready to embrace [ heklAa’s ] latest album where compositions seem to unravel magically, divulging mysteries at a constant pace that requires neither patience nor tolerance. It is true that sometime music characterized one’s personality and everything you need to know about Sébastien dwells in the very depth on his music itself. The reward on “My Name Is John Murdoch” is a rare manifestation in sound. Aggressively pretty and artfully haunting, undercurrent of profound sadness constantly agitates beneath the surface.

In a nutshell “My Name Is John Murdoch” builds-up progressively in an appealing way and in no time, appearance of soaring guitars, electronic / computerize electronic element in the form of drum hits, and echoing bells are all over the place. Over the next hour you’ll hear melodies battling with noises through and through, constantly trying to find a point of understanding. This struggle between light and dark and these oppositions in the end mostly found a common ground in memorable episodes of fascinating scene. Once again, for the 2nd time on [ heklAa’s ] releases ( Straight 10 Out Of 10 ).

THE ALBUM

The album is inspired by one of my favorite movies: “Dark City”. It should not to be considered as an unofficial soundtrack of the existing movie but as an official soundtrack of an unofficial version of the movie! I have started to work on this album two years ago. The obsessions and questions of the protagonist are partly mine: loss of childhood, nostalgia, self-discovery, Miles Davis’ “Générique”… Beyond “Dark City”, there are many references to other works (Tim Burton’s “Batman”, Edward Hopper, Miles Davis…)

THE STORY

The movie tells the story of John Murdoch, a music journalist, expert of Miles Davis’ work. After years, he comes back in sirenZ, the big city where he grew up, to cover a set of jazz concerts. As he is walking along the main street, he has the strange feeling that nothing is like it used to be. Did the city change so much? Did he change so much? Did time just go by? (Episode 1: The Dark City of sirenZ)

A whole series of events is going to intensify his conviction that something is wrong: that beautiful woman he meets in the “Hopper’s bar”; he does not know any Selina Kyle, but he could swear that he knows that woman, like a reminiscence from yesteryears, he knows that he had dinner once with her, that they have spent the night after that together, too. (Episode 2: L’Inconnue ) There is also this original recording of Miles Davis’ soundtrack for “Elevator of the Gallows” that he finds in an old music store; as an expert, he knows full well that this milestone in jazz was celebrated in 1958. “Générique”, the perfection of music according to John, this permanent catchy tune in his head could not be just a creation of his own mind. But, the calendar in the store still indicates that John is living in the year 1946… Last but not least, in place of Miles Davis’ music, John discovers a recording made by a Louis Malville who introduces himself as a French movie director. Louis reveals that sirenZ is a shameless lie, a Dark City like many others, where nothing is real. (Générique)

Nothing? What about Shell Beach, this sunny happy place of his childhood, where he used to fly a kite or go sailing and fishing with his father? So many memories of brighter times… (Episode 5: Remembering Shell Beach)

After days of investigating, at last, John finds out the truth, as he is walking by a souvenir shop. Behind the window, a glass snow ball representing sirenZ. He understands, terrified, that this is not just a trinket for tourists, but reality: The city is lying in the depths of the sea, under a giant bell. (Episode 3: The Dome) Shell Beach does exist, but only in his head, nothing more than pretty pictures in a photo album. Why? When? How? John will never get the answer. (Episode 4: Dance with the Shadows)

John’s world has collapsed. (Ep 7: Say hurray! ‘cause it’s the End of the World!). Now that he knows the whole truth, what comes next? Should he tell everything and run the risk of becoming a curse, an incurable decease for everyone in the city? Should he just live a normal, quiet life by the woman he loves? No, he will not be a tragic hero. He knows who he is. (Episode 6: My name is John Murdoch). Selina is waiting for him.

Linear Bells Profile

[ BIOGRAPHY ].

David Teboul goes by the moniker Linear Bells. He is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and sound artist based in Nantes, France. His music is a mix between, vintage instruments, sound manipulations and field recordings, all primarily created with acoustic and analogic instruments. Teboul starting to produce sounds in the mid 90’s under the moniker of Embark. He created one of the first French net-labels named Acrylik, which was involved in electronica production and both digital and vinyl distribution.

[ Conche de Matha ].

‘Conche de Matha’ was built after a quick trip to a small French island in December (45°54’28.8″N 1°19’19.9″W). The landscape that was presented to me that day totally captivated me. I decided to trap all the surrounding sounds and soak up the best of this autumnal atmosphere. Back at home, I assembled it all and I tried, with my fleeting memories, to recreate this sound environment persisted as me on the spot by adding layers of guitar, cello and organ. Here’s the result…

Evillookingbird

December 20th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Mog/

evillookingbird_Profile

Evillookingbird is Instrumental warfare. Pianos in an epic battle with bass and drums, sometimes earshattering and chaotic, then emerging into subtlety or melancholy. An unseen combination of genres blending together into something that is sure to surprise you.

So, the sound of evillookingbird is quite eclectic and dark, with large contrasts between heavy, chaotic parts and moments of quiet melancholy. Brilliant classical piano or futuristic synths, a heavy but defined bassline and hyperkinetic drums. We are mixing classical music with post/prog/mathrock, with electronics, and a whole lot more. We heard people describe it as a more classical Badbadnotgood, with 65dos and Muse poured on top. Whether that is a correct description, I don’t know, I’ll leave that to you guys. In conclusion, pianobased music that delivers a surprisingly heavy punch in the gut. Bring your earplugs.

MEMBERS ARE:

Vincent Van Schoonbeek (bass)
Mathias Verduyckt (drums)
and Tim Vandecaetsbeek (piano/synth),

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

About the tracks, they were recorded live on tape – in an analog studio, the three of us playing the songs live, no clicktracks, no additional overlays, it’s as close to our live set as possible in a studio setting. So yeah, there are mistakes and imperfections, but as we are striving to play the dirtiest piano-based music we can make, that didn’t matter so much.

Inheritance

December 20th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Inheritance Profile

Inheritance is a project that is based on already broken up post-metal band Dawn To Come. The band members whereabouts are starting in Presov (Slovak Republic) and ending up in Brno(Czech Republic). But the distance and lack of rehearsals could not stop them to create something amazing. This is supported by the fact that band will be playing with Irish [ God is An Astronaut ] or American [ Pontiak ].

Inheritance is a mixture of guitar, piano and drums. The music could be related to modern fusion/post-jazz scene wrapped in ambient nuance. Arrhythmical guitar riffs accompanied by classical tones of piano and glued by pre-calculated groove drums.I hope you are going to enjoy their debut EP Distances.

[ Distances “EP” ].

Very often the opening note of an album or an EP gives one a clear thought as to where an album or the EP is leading while at the same time, on seldom occasions the opening note can also be misleading in the sense that the band focusses on certain element at the very beginning of a release and then takes on a totally different approach towards the middle of the album.

[ Distances ] EP, in this particular case, the debut album by [ Inheritance ] gathers four movements with a total duration of just over quarter an hour covers all the major aspects of instrumental math-rock. The band approach from the start of the EP is subtle and flawless right through till the end of the EP.

“Malleus” the opener is a solid dose of instrumental-infused math rock, the sort of introduction that instantly elaborate on the glittering impact of all instrumental execution. Heading further into “Distances” you’ll bump into “Upon My Steps, He Never Wins”, yet another splendid piece with a slow and steady paced guitar rhythm. ( Make no mistake ) though, the track does tend to pick up on paced towards the middle with a slight speed guitar, but the rich and blissful textures are so apparent and so vivid that it bypasses the rhythmic shift. Moving forward to “Then He Moved On” the sound deepens, however, solidifying on the Mathy quality pushing toward an expansive evocation of bliss reminiscent of [ The Pattern Theory ]. Last but not least the EP closes with “and I Behind Him Follow” which gathers a steady texture of [ The Drift ] and the quietly emergent melodies of [ Blue Whale ].

Wrapping up… [ Inheritance / Distances ] blend a heartfelt fondness for the music the band creates. Although this EP do not showcase any momentum build with colossal waves and piercing distortion. [ Distances ], however, remain a solid beauty with unimaginable simple textures rather than complex for the sake of complexity. It’s a magnificent listen filled with soothing guitars notes and with an atmosphere that is simply breathtaking. DO NOT SKIP.
