Odmieniec – Taniec Ducha

April 17th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Odmieniec Profile

“Odmieniec” is a single musical project, brought to life in January, 2014 by Jakub Czyz ( ex-Faaip de Oiad ). The album [ Taniec Ducha ] was entirely recorded in home studio. On the album you can hear a lot of instruments: electric guitars, acoustic guitar, harmonica, wooden flute, plastic flute, rainstick, metal bowl, and a variety of different sound effects, such as birds chirping or human laughter.

“Taniec Ducha” (Ghost Dance) is an attempt to describe myself, my fears, pain, experience, an attempt to tame with my traumas. It’s a lonely journey, searching for my own identity, the desire to ally with nature, locate what is between the world of the present and world of the absent. The experience of what was important once, and now has been forgotten. “Taniec Ducha” is a ritual, a prayer for the coveted freedom, independence, happy life, but in the end, it’s announcement of war, painful loss and death.

Linear Bells

April 17th, 2014 / Comments Off / by pdresseachea

[ Linear Bells ] is a composer and sound artist. His music is a mix between sound manipulations, field recordings, mainly created with acoustic and analog instruments. He also worked with “Embark” and made collaborative works with “Acre4” as well as piloting the side project known as [ Kissy Suzuki ]. Linear Bells is also working on great remixes for several artists.

[ LOST ].

[ Lost ] is the kind of album / sound that makes you going straight to the point without beating around the bush trying hard to capture other’s attention. It’s pretty downright and straight forward and YES… I am in this particular instance going to throw in my thoughts, feeling and emotions predominantly based on the 01st movement alone, which in this case is “Lost I”. Well… after all it’s an over 25minutes track filled with so much goodness that I can literally write 25 paragraphs on it. But fear not as I won’t go that far and I will try my upmost best to keep it as concise and as relevant as possible.

“Lost I” or shall I say [ Lost ] find Linear Belles returning to the themes and sounds covering the core root of original drone-scape and experimental-ambientscape in a stunning slow-pace. By now purely based on the consistency and dedication of David we’d all agree from his early recordings to his latest release we are more likely referring to a ( living legend ). Truth be said each and every release by [ Linear Bells ] brings a more sleek and colourful sound in the ear of his listeners.

“Lost I” is a strong piece, and a major development in the ambient line. It is a movement that is so varied in style and structure as it aim to efficacy and ingenious moments. One minute you’ll find yourself so completely wrapped up in the sound that your emotions tends to take control over your body and your soul while other sequences on the very same track is so detached to this world that you almost feel like you are on a different planet. The tracks manifest itself in various sequences in an ambient line of subtlety that is simply and exquisitely too gorgeous to be ignored.

David ability and taste for ambient beauty on [ Lost ] overspread and empowered everything he’s written before. His unique way of portraying and exercising his ideas and thoughts in music makes him a none-ignorable artist with a sublime endowment, the word genius doesn’t even come close to what he is capable of…, The lengthy loops, the discreet moments of piano/keys-led grace that add up to one of the most extraordinary encounter in sound that can push you far ahead the horizon and as high above the sky.

There is no denying that the sound compiled by [ Linear Bells ] in “Lost” or any other releases are music’s mostly intended for film series and visual based documentaries as they unlock your imagination to see daily objects and routine lifestyles in a whole different perspective. The sound by [ Linear Bells ] slowly and captivatingly pushes you mind to reach for places you would never dare to enter in real life as it’s only through music and sound that you can achieve those boundaries. I’ve said that before on [ Linear Bells ] and I am saying it again today [ STRAIGHT 10 OUT OF 10 ] Album Here.

LOST is a journey through several cities where I literally loved to lose myself and sometimes my mind. It describes a personal immersion via Birmingham (UK), Altea (Spain), Venice (Italy), Nantes (France) and all the feelings that come with it. I experimented with different new techniques on this release, Equipement used : LF generator, Guitar, Cello, Tape, Field recordings. hope you enjoy…

[ This Train Is Going Nowhere ] is A beautiful three tracks EP that run about fifty-six minutes from David Teboul – Aka Linear Bells – The track number 3 is called “American” and is fabulously mastered and placed together. We ( somehowrecordings.co.uk ) also have 10 additional small postcards with the first 10 copies sold, with artwork from Julia at Somehow. The main artwork is from Somehow with design from ourselves and Chris at Big Blue Wolf. Enjoy.”

[ Over & Over ]. “French sound artist David Teboul (Linear Bells) graces us with a captivating ambient composition: a single long-form song. The recording slowly unfolds, one petal at a time, over its forty minute length. Cellos gently swell and fade, quivering ever so slightly. Tiny showers of rain and wind are carefully arranged into a scratchy, crackling foundation, now and then spattering strongly; a subtle storm in the making. String loops shimmer in and out, poised between minor and major motifs, lightly draped across the senses, layered over and over.

The album closes with a brief run of synthesized, hollow beats; a mechanical, metallic accompaniment to the strings and choral wash. In time, the percussion fades, returning to the trembling cello strains that began the performance. For all the individual elements that comprise this experience, Teboul’s music is restrained; drones and atmospheric textures are crafted with an exquisitely delicate touch. We find ourselves in a cold, drizzling city, crowded with dark, muted figures rushing to and fro–but Linear Bells takes us down quieter back alleys to a sheltering doorway, inviting us to close our eyes and just listen.”

Equal Stones | Myosotis

April 17th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Equal Stones Profile

Equal Stones is Amandus Schaap, an ambient producer / sound designer based in the Netherlands. After being a listener of ambient and near genres for several years, the artist has been producing material since 2011. Along vst electronics there is a consistent use of electric guitars, field recordings and sometimes additional vocals.

The first year of recording sessions consisted of experimental tryouts which eventually gave shape to a first recording entitled ‘Temporal Displacement’ which was released by Hidden Vibes Netlabel in Oct 2012. He felt the need to express himself without any boundary of thought, which ultimately left him with a handful of unsettling tracks which were quite experimental and emotionally unstable. From this first release by Equal Stones you can expect a diverse palette of moods. Ranging from warmth, loss, disobedience and darker edges. On this record musician has layered quite a bit of guitars, two tracks are almost solely layered processed guitars, and for instance on Drawing Circles there are processed distortion guitars pounding rhythmic phrases.

A second recording entitled ‘To Erase a Lifetime’ has been released by Hidden Vibes Netlabel on the 22nd of July 2013. Largely turning away from experimental, this recording reaches for a mature production and features a more traditional approach regarding ambient structure, while still exploring experimental boundaries with noise, distortion and some dark ambient textures.

A dark ambient counterpart is currently in the works and the initial plan is to have both ‘To Erase a Lifetime’ and its counterpart to be combined in a physical release format. To stay tuned on the progress of this project you can follow Equal Stones on Facebook and / or Soundcloud.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
< < < < < [ 2014 Title "Transgression" Update ]. > > > > >

“Transgression” is a third release on Hidden Vibes by Amandus Schaap, an ambient producer from the Netherlands also active on the Myosotis project. When Amandus put together the setlist to this release he had a lot of tracks already finished, laying about. He decided to go with a drone theme this time around. The tracks on Transgression are mainly built up from multilayered synths accompinied with a lot of microsounds, statics, vinyl sampling, scrapes and minimal guitar textures, alot of these slightly hidden in the high register. There are some vocal patterns holding the melody in place, but most of the experience is built upon textures.

The idea for the title of the third track, Reject All You Have Learned, comes from a quote of one of musician’s favorite philisophers Emil M. Cioran. “Chaos is rejecting all you have learned, chaos is being yourself.” This track is a lenghty experiment in which Amandus tries to give form to the chaos he experiences in life. This album really shines when you take off your headphones and listen to the tracks on a well equipped stereo setup.

VINYL INFO;

Transgression comes on virgin 180 grams vinyl,
and comes in a gatefold sleeve
with beautiful artwork designed and produced by Tessel Dekker.

PRESS QUOTE;

“This auditory “Transgression” is the manifestation of the chaos within the life of composer Amandus Schaap. But this chaos is more of an awakening than a harsh anarchy. The music embraces the chaos, as a rejection of everything he has come to know as truth. This theme is conveyed very well in this album however, the sonic turmoil is countered and balanced by atmospheres of positivity and deep introspection.” (c) Bryan Hilyard // Tone Harvest

N.Tesla

April 17th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

N.Tesla Profile

N.Tesla is an electrifying Post-Metal band. OK, sorry for the bad joke there. But joking aside N.Tesla is a Russian Post-Metal band who have just released their stunning debut album – Lux Manifesto, which blends elements of ambient vibes, post-hardcore and crushing sludge metal riffs for one pulsating ride. This is not your most straight-forward Post-Metal album as N.Tesla don’t play by the rules. They add a strangely hypnotic feel to their music. It’s very different to the likes of Isis, The Ocean and Neurosis and that is a very good thing indeed. As the band develop their own sound over the album’s 34 minute running time.

Tracks such as North, Spring, Aurora and Lux Manifesto – show you the full passion and creativity of this epic band as the have delivered some truly emotional and haunting post-metal riffs. Vocalist – Dima – shows his full vocal range from the very first second at this dude can sing. His shrieks are very powerful indeed which gives N.Tesla music a dangerous vibe. N.Tesla add a wide range of electronic based samples which really adds to the atmosphere especially on Lux Manifesto with the band adding strange guitar noises and riffs in return. Yeah I think this is a great album indeed as it has the courage to be different compared to other Post-Metal albums.

Determination Of Giants is another standout track from the album as it has some lush progressive jazz like vibes lurking amongst the Post-Metal carnage. Something that wouldn’t be a miss from an Opeth album not a Post-Metal album. But it shows you what a talented bunch of musicians this band actually is. All in all Lux Manifesto is an excellently produced album from start to finish. It shows another quality band coming from the Russian Sludge/Post-Metal scene. N.Tesla may put a few people off with their style of music but if you want something different and original within the Post-Metal scene than Lux Manifesto speaks loud volumes.

Lights Dim

April 15th, 2014 / Comments Off / by pdresseachea

Lights Dim

The idea behind [ Deep Summer EP ] was to create a piece of work, that would take the listener on a one day journey to a dry and dusty city, where they would experience the heat and the dirt of an urban summer. This is represented within the first two tracks. After these are allowed to settle in for a few minutes, eventually some comfort and rest is brought in to close the set in the form of ‘Parades’, which is intended to represent night fall, when the heat would subside a relieving calm sets in.

[ REVIEW "DEEP SUMMER" ] Lights Dim‘s Marek Kaminski is well known to many of our readers by sound, although perhaps not by name. He’s also part of the post-rock ensemble New Century Classics, whose classically-influenced recordings have set them well ahead of their peers. Kaminski applies this influence to his new solo material, which may be short by design (part of Audio Gourmet’s tea break series) but is better defined as compact.

Deep Summer is a perfect way to launch the new summer, as it possesses the carefree sheen of the season but is so well mixed as to seem fully in the moment. A trio of tracks that work well as one, Deep Summer makes one yearn for the beach towels and cooler-packed picnics, even if the warmest days have not yet arrived. And what better way to end the sneak peek than with fireworks? ( Ironically, this makes three releases of recent days – Seaside Sounds, Omiyage and Deep Summer – to end in this fashion, although we don’t mind the excitement ).

Kaminski’s intent was to create the soundtrack to an “urban summer day” in the first two tracks and the calm of nightfall in the third. As the artist is based in Krakow, we can understand the association; but as someone who lives near the beach, I can attest that the music morphs to fit its surroundings. ”Under the Sun” may have been composed to sound oppressive, but it comes across as languid: a sunbather’s anthem, rather than a dayworker’s lament.

The crunching backdrop may imply to one listener the tedium of office machines, but to this listener, it implies the peaceful munching of brine shrimp. In like fashion, “Dust in the Air” shimmers like a heat mirage or laps like waves, depending on one’s perspective. Do the intended associations matter? Not particularly; either way, this EP sounds like summer. And everyone can relate to the joy of fireworks, which decorate the exuberant “Parades”. Now everyone’s day, worker and vacationer alike, is drawing to a close, and the comfort of communal celebration can be shared. The chords grow brighter, the notes rise higher, the earth passes closer to the sun. (Richard Allen)

[ Between Spaces ] is a compilation album documenting a year of collaboration between Marek Kamiński and Hidekazu Imashige. The release features two of the duo’s sold out EPs – ‘Moon’ and ‘Young City’ in their entirety, as well as 2 brand new, exclusive tracks, which the release opens with. The entire edition is limited to 300 copies.

Taken from the Nature Bliss press note:

Lights Dim is the solo project of Marek Kamiński from Poland, known for his works on Audio Gourmet, Preserved Sound, and GV Sound. With this new “Between Spaces” album, he teams up with his sound mate Gallery Six from Hiroshima, Japan putting together beautiful layers of soundscapes, including acoustic instruments such as piano and guitars, as well as sound samples and field recordings. Their music has a strong emotional “song” feeling to it which sounds more like further steps beyond post rock music rather than electronic ambient music. Whatever the categories are, this is simply touching large-scale music with much graceful moments recommended for the fans of [ Hammock ] and [ Sigur Ros ].
