Biography

It is fair to say that the culmination of the cubist art of Georges Braque is creation of pictures with collages of unexpected elements, such as sand, iron, wood, etc. Using many different materials, the artist concentrated harmony in a single form. Media artists of the "Collage" project are author of "Aatdushi"compilation series, Oomkah Dee, and musician Black Sky Chant, earlier known as Bedroom Bear, who made a number of drone ambient releases before. Each of two artist has its own way of creation of the certain image.

Oomkah connects home listening on the background with piano plays, remembers passages from the French emigrants' poetry and adds the voice of Korean diva to it. 19 tracks found a room in a 30 minutes period. United music layers multiply troubled emotional background. There are totally different colors in a Black Sky Chant's half-hour journey.

He is using dim lo-fi and drone to literally press the listener against the hot ground and then, in the middle of "Collage", to dip into a lake's water. This is how the journey stays in the memory for a long time. Any lo-fi music associates with tapes, therefore, the cassette release of "Collage" is legitimate, despite of the modern kitch. For digital-format lover this release will be free.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
