Alex Tiuniaev is a piano and cinematic music composer from Moscow, Russia. Alex has been making music since 2005 when he released his debut album Artificial Symphony on OtterSong Records in the US. The album was a mixture of ambient pop, orchestral colours, and electronica.

In 2008 Alex released I Knew Her, his most popular album to date, on Cold Spring Records in the UK. It contained a single 40-minute neo-classical piece and was heavily influenced by American minimalist composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich.

In 2010s Alex switched to a clearer, more intimate sound of the piano. In 2012 he released Blurred on Heat Death Records and a series of EPs for numerous netlabels, including the popular Earth Mantra and Audio Gourmet labels.

In 2017 Alex decided to self-release all future works through BandCamp. Currently two albums and two singles are available, all of them belonging within the intimate genre of chamber neoclassical music with ambient undertones. His major influences include film music composers, such as Howard Shore, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, and Hans Zimmer, as well as ambient and electronic artists such as Harold Budd, Brian Eno, Cliff Martinez, Aphex Twin, and Sigur Ros. 

This is a collection of solo piano pieces inspired by the nighttime ambience and the starless skies of his hometown. Also, by Blade Runner and Erik Satie.

"Human Nature" by Ingvar

2018-08-16 22:09:14 UTC

0013710904 10

Ingvar is a one man band, born in Athens, Greece. Drawing from swedish influences Ingvar creates topographies of atmosphere and ambience. It started in 2010, stealing time from the main occupation which is architecture. It started with 1 ep and 1 album and the second ep came in 2016 called Human Nature. Since then, Ingvar now resides in Stockholm, pursuing the creation of a second album.

The project 'Human Nature' tries to discover what human deeply means. Drawing inspiration from philosophy and sociology, every song takes on an attribute of human nature. 

Human nature is to be conscious and to desire. We are rational and social creatures, but we become who we are in society. We construct a self by bridging doubt by faith— in ourselves (aesthetic self); in others (ethical self) or in God (religious self), but this is only artificial and an illusion. Being in harmony with the environment and with all species is the core of the human nature. The human is always in between choices. Always having doubts whether to choose right or not. In truth, whatever you choose, you will have done the right choice. Dealing with the outcome, whatever that is, is what makes you stronger as a human. 

The human is clinging to hold on to situations for various reasons. Learning to let go when that is needed, is what makes us better as a human. Being humble and conscious to our existence, we become a medium of energy and contemplate together with the world around us. Connect with the world and we become wiser as a human. From stardust we have come and to stardust we will return. The very essence of the human nature is that of the universe. Be one with the universe and you shall become consistent as a human. The very substance of human nature is love. We all come from the same source, treat everyone as your own and we become kinder as a human.Believe or do not believe is a trivial matter. To some, god is a higher power, to others the soil that feeds them. Whether you believe or not, the only important thing is to find and be true to yourself and we become complete as a human.

New album Land of no Return by Hellenica

2017-10-31 23:49:28 UTC

Hellen

Hellenica fuses dark ambient type instrumentals with elements of drone, doom, chant and spaghetti – western guitar melodies. A 3 song EP They Are Out For Blood was released in March of 2012. It was followed by a full length album Blood Moon Wolf Head in November of 2014. The most recent album Forms was released in April of 2016 via Montréal label Jeunesse Cosmique. After the release of Forms Hellenica toured Europe in November 2016 performing in Germany, Czech Rep., and Netherlands. Jim Demos grew up in the west-end’s industrial part of Winnipeg among rusted train yards and crumbling storage facilities. Aside from the years of searching out obscure metal albums as a kid, he later became interested in the Chicago, San Diego, Chapel Hill music scenes, shoe-gazer bands of the early 90’s, and the kraut-rock/experimental scene of the 70’s. Even though these styles could be heard in earlier projects, an ethnic influence was always present in his writing. When a child, his family would visit the Greek orthodox church on special occasions where he first heard the greek orthodox choir. Later on Jim became interested in spaghetti-western films and their soundtracks, and has taken these two influences as a canvas to work off of. His past projects and collaborations include guitarist/vocals/writer in the noise rock band Ham, bass/writer in shoe-gazer band National Monument and guitarist/writer in Gothic western band The Dead Letters. Jim is also co-writer in the Golden Tombs.

Exploring the depths of 70's and 80's sci-fi soundtracks, Scraps, notes and ideas fused together to create a soundtrack to a fictional sci-film entitled: Land of no Return. This album was recorded digitally then mastered through a 1970's DENON 5L-40 REEL TO REEL TAPE MACHINE found in an antique shop in Sainte Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec. Instruments used were: Various midi instruments, a Fender bass guitar, samples, Roland SH2000 synth, guitar drones, ebo, Sampletron.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
