“Of The Spirit, Of The Space” is the third release on novice recording label UAE. Based in Norway and over its short existence UAE have already carved its name signing-up mega-ambient and subtle-noises monikers such as “GIMU”, “MusicForMessier” and “Wolves and Horses”, showing strong determination and a particular love and enthusiasm for underground ambient sound.

“Of The Spirit Of The Space” is GIMU’s most recent development and it’s an outstanding oeuvre that exhibit nearly an hour of planetarium tunes fusing both ambient textures and mod-classical ambient sound in the light of forming something extremely deep and profound. Few weeks ago we wrote a short piece on movement 5 of the album ‘In A Frenzy’ which was released as a teaser giving us a clear head’s up of what to expect from the album. ‘In A Frenzy’ as I recall, retains a massive and intense vibration with a straight-forward emotional impact. It’s a short but concrete journey for listeners to tag along Gimu’s interpretation of the cosmos and life itself.

And now that we encounter the album in its entirety, I am confident to reveal and to confirm that Gimu’s vivid imagination and sound interpretation goes far beyond the horizon and way above the bluest sky. The most intriguing part of the album is that each song on this latest release resonates with its own intensity while creating a specific theme in listener’s mind. In attribution with a variety of elements spanning across harmony and dissonance, tension and contrast, textures and melody listeners will also notice that some arrangements are indeed more frequent than others, but all together it is hyper-safe to say that “Of The Spirit, Of The Space” is definitely meant to be a continuous one hour listen.

Gimu’s sonic exploration and musical motif is crystal clear, ambient-drone fans will get it from the very first listen itself. And although to a certain extent, one would agree that Gimu’s overall sounding do hold a certain pattern to it, but there is also a technical depth that I really like about “Of The Spirit, Of The Space”, the flow of the album is utterly brilliant and there’s a great feel to the album. As dark and as abstract is the tune, it can get quite meditative at times, but equally convenient and attainable with just the right contrasts at all times. And that alone makes the listen hyper-enjoyable.

‘Of The Spirit, Of The Space’ sees Gimu’s ability to finding common grounds between the dusty old-school drone and modern-ambient technique aiming to project an apocalyptic air that shape and reshape itself upon each listen. And while a big part of the thrill relies heavily upon cosmic and spatial concept listeners can also find comfort in simplicity, charm and serenity generally found in rural areas or dive in the deep blue sea. This, for a fact is almost inevitable as listeners are bind to ebb and flow within dimensions.

Slow Meadow

August 24th, 2015 / Comments Off on Slow Meadow / by Mog/

Slow Meadow Profile

Slow Meadow started when Matt Kidd befriended Marc Byrd of Hammock. Matt went to Marc presenting his post-rock project, Aural Method, for creative advice, critique, and artistic support. The two spent many hours discussing music, art, religion, philosophy. Having similar backgrounds in a few of these subjects, they decided to informally sit and record for a couple of days to see what would come.

SLOW MEADOW

released 21 August 2015

Slow Meadow is Matt Kidd.
All music written,
arranged, recorded and mixed by him.

Additional arranging: Aimee Norris
Cello: Aimee Norris
Violins: Andy Shelton, Joshua Ello, Alia Gonzales

Additional Vocals: Hannah Anderson | Mastering: Taylor Deupree at 12k

Meditative music from ambient artist, Matt Kidd. Matt uses guitar, piano, and synthesizers to compose minimalistic changes and arranges strings throughout each work. The songs weave in and out of substantial neoclassical “pop” arrangements to whimsical textural soundscapes. A mixture of obsessive planning and instinctive improv, Slow Meadow is the foreground and background of thought provoking leisure.

El Ten Eleven

August 24th, 2015 / Comments Off on El Ten Eleven / by Mog/

El Ten Eleven Profile

El Ten Eleven, formed in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, are a 2-man post-rock team consisting of Kristian Dunn (bass guitar/composition) and Tim Fogarty (drums). The pair came together in 2002 and have been releasing music since 2004 which saw their debut, self-titled album on the cleverly titled Fake Record Label. Since their debut, the duo has released five full length albums to date, a remix album, and an EP.

MEMBERS

Tim Fogarty
(drums and electronic drums)
Kristian Dunn

2015 will see their sixth studio release, titled Fast Forward. Focusing on groove, rhythm, and texture, the guys manage to create evolving soundscapes full of arpeggiated guitar layers, intricate yet subtle melodies, and poly-rhythmic parts that seem to move in and out between each other like a woven fabric. The labyrinth of stringed parts are accompanied by Fogarty’s driving drum patterns that range in texture from entirely acoustic to entirely electronic, often ending up with a unique hybrid of both. The guys came to Signal Kitchen to share a piece of their artistry and we managed to capture some great footage of the show along with audio of their entire live set. Enjoy.
