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.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
