Small Life Form is a musical project of Brian John Mitchell (Remora, Vlor, etc) that started in 1998 based around recording 30 seconds of sound (the limitation of Sound Recorder in Windows 3.11) & stretching & adding echo & layering the results. Over the next five years Mitchell’s interest in 1960s classical music (most notably Gyorgy Ligeti) & electroacoustic music (especially label mates Kobi & Clang Quartet) led to the recording of the debut album One (2003) with pieces constructed from horns, melodica, cymbal, voice, & radio astronomy.

In 2007 at the urging of Shaun Sandor (Promute) & CJ Boyd, Small Life Form became a live project initially built around voice, horns, & feedback eventually refining to the current main instrumentation of voice, feedback, copper pipe, triangles, aircraft lock, optical theremin, melodica, & super simple synthesizer. Early versions of the live show can be heard on 2008’s Alive & followed up by the studio recordings of Lost Kisses Soundtrack (2009) & Satsop (source sounds recorded in 2008 in a nuclear cooling tower & released in 2012).

Voice in the Sky takes the Small Life Form live show & allows it to breathe & develop. It starts with reverbed out layers of ghostly voices building into walls of sound & decaying noise. A big slab of drone taking you into Small Life Form’s world for 45 minutes.

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.
