    J Butler – Memory

    ,
    Memory is that most elusive thing, so certain at a distance, but once examined up close full of holes and doubt. Memories fade, change, are re-written, morph and elide. At once ungraspable, unknowable and always out of reach they are also an essential part of each of us, and the basis of life as we know it. In Musicophilia: Tales of music and the brain, neurologist and author Oliver Sacks writes: “Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination.” This album with its delicate twists and turns, its unexpected returns and re-workings is J Butler’s meditation on the ways we remember. From the slow unfolding of Float, to the hazy repetitions of the title track and the insistent tug of Ephemera this is an album which you won’t forget.

    Artificial Memory Trace ‎– Amfibion

    ,
    Amfibion takes the listener into a rich, bizarre and disorienting world, a biological melting pot of the uncanny, the bewildering and the awe inspiring. Comprised of treated field recordings of frogs taken during excursions in the Brazilian Amazon from 2007 to 2011, Amfibion is largely based on mating songs, and Artificial Memory Trace treats them in a manner which underlines the humid fecundity of this ecological wonderland. These pieces froth and foam, drip and slide from crashing crescendo to an eerie throb in the blink of an eye. There are croaks, shimmers, pulses and drones, sounds come together suddenly, and end just as abruptly. The sound world of Amfibion is a complex one, a place where life, death and reproduction intermingle like frog calls in the night, without beginning, or end. An unforgettable journey.

    Arash Akbari – Vanishing Point

    ,
    Iran’s Arash Akbari’s Vanishing Point nestles into inbetween places, revelling in the indistinct, the delicate and the mysterious. Bringing together field recordings taken from northern Iran, guitar and electronics, this is a late night album, an album which soothes, a set of sounds to think to. This is an album which lingers in the margins of consciousness, it conjures images gently, caresses them and ever so slowly lets them fade from view. With last year’s heralded Cracked Echoes on the excellent French label Soft Akbari established himself as an emerging talent within the ambient scene. With Vanishing Points he cements his reputation as one of the genre’s most exciting new talents.

    Corder Ritger Yantis – Possession

    ,
    Three sonic heavyweights have come together to compose the dark drone beauty Possession. Released in time for Valentine’s Day, this EP has no easy endings, only endless destructive cycles played out in a ruined universe. Inspired from the minds of US-based musicians Jason Corder (offthesky), Cody Yantis and Carl Ritger (Radere), they have birthed a doom drone space centric scape of obsession, madness and despair. From the gripping unfolding of the opening track Ascension, to the mind travel of A Viscous Tear and the majestic denouement of the 20 minute closing piece Wrath to Wraith, Possession will hold you in its chilly grip to the very end.

    Valiska / Zenjungle – A Changing Light

    ,
    Born out of a collaboration stretching from Vancouver to Athens, A Changing Light centres on change, dislocation and uncertainty. From different time zones, and very different cities Valiska (Krzysztof Sujata) and Zenjungle (Phil Gardelis) have carved out an album which celebrates change, nuance and noise. ”We hope that the listener will be as uncertain about where they will find themselves from track to track as the image that we had in our minds,” the pair explain. From the gorgeously gritty Derive to Gardelis’ blissful sax work on Nightwinds this is a special collaboration.

    Specta Ciera – Overwintering

    ,
    Overwintering was inspired by watching animals leave Boston. As the weather turned cold it also became a lot quieter. As Devin Underwood, who releases as Specta Ciera explains: “Birds leaving the area for warmer climates created a sense of abandonment and isolation, the lack of song birds, buzzing and chirping of insects changed the atmosphere of my surroundings entirely. With “Overwintering” I wanted to try and harness those feelings of the deepest, coldest moments of winter as the first snows settle in and slowly with it, the deep freeze develops.”

    Ross Baker – Two Suns Were Visible…

    ,
    Inspired by vast empty spaces from military training sites to churches, Two Suns Were Visible in the Sky presents a vast panorama filled with joyous signs of life. From the opening sweep of ‘International Debris’ to the melancholic tones of the all too brief ‘Some Early Hour’ and the wistful ‘Farewell, Swifts’ this is album full of emotion. Baker said he was inspired by the emptiness of abandoned spaces because he felt they were so desolate you could almost see the sun rise again before it had set. With ‘Two Suns’ Baker might just have succeeded in bringing some extra light into all our skies.

    Rezo Glonti – Late Night Diving

    ,
    The old and the new, and the personal and political collide in Rezo Glonti’s EP Late Night Diving, which explores the history and contemporary reality of his post-Soviet home Georgia. Inspired by old wedding footage found during a trip to rural Georgia, Glonti decided to write a piece celebrating joy and renewal in the face of oppression and despair. ”It was really inspiring and beautiful,” he said of the footage, which was shot in 1985. ”I realised that despite the regime and the banning of certain things, people were happy and happiness and joy is universal and timeless, no matter when you live and where you live.”

    The Green Kingdom – The Blue Heron

    ,
    Each 3" cd comes in a handmade sleeve and contains a statement from the artist… The Great Blue Heron, such an elegant and majestic creature. Fortunately, they also happen to be indigenous to Michigan- though it’s quite a rare and special event to happen upon one. We are lucky enough to have an area near where we live which is now a protected Rookery for Herons. Watching such a large bird with an impressive wingspan fly overhead almost takes you back to prehistoric times. One realizes how truly unique and precious these creatures are, and how we must make every effort to maintain adequate habitats for them to flourish. With this piece, I tried to capture the scale, elegance and mystery of this magnificent bird. – The Green Kingdom, Shelby Township Michigan, USA

    Michael Trommer – The Great Northern Loon

    ,
    Birds of a Feather will be a series of at least 12 three inch cds released as pairs in runs of 100 over the next year. Each cd comes in a handmade sleeve and contains a statement from the artist… ‘The swans are always in my thoughts and give splendor to (my) life. (It’s) strange to learn that nothing in the whole world affect me – nothing in art, literature, or music – in the same ways as do these swans and cranes and wild geese. Their voices and being.” Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. The role of birds as muse, as musical guide and inspiration has been well documented in classical music, from Mozart’s pet starling to Beethoven’s birdsong filled Pastoral Symphony and Sibelius’s swan hymn to Messaien’s birdsong compositions. Birds of a Feather celebrates the role of birds in ambient music, and the beautiful fragility of birds more generally. So many different types of birds are struggling to eke out an existence in an increasingly urbanized world, in some cases they adapt and survive. In others like the case of New Zealand’s flightless and critically endangered Kakapo, which has a permanent human support team and whole island dedicated to helping the species recover, even the most drastic measures may come to late. But always birds inspire us with their mastery of flight, their epic migrations, their tragic vulnerability and their against the odds tales of survival.

    David Newlyn – Deterioration

    ,
    Deterioration comes in a handmade sleeve and is limited to 100 copies… An interrogation of the recording process in all its guises lies at the heart of David Newlyn’s new album Deterioration. From micro cassettes, to phones, to cameras David, who is based in Durham, England, took to the outdoors while in Bruges, Belgium to capture the impact the environment and his choice of recording device would have on the sounds he produced. The result is an extremely delicate and brooding album, full of texture and hiss as well as fleeting moments of melodic beauty. Mastered by Wil Bolton the final mix is aptly a blend of tracks as captured on tape and digitally. Newlyn will be a familiar name to many ambient music enthusiasts, with a host of releases to his name, having put material with Hibernate, Time Released Sound and Cotton Goods to name just a few.

    Harper / Smyth – Home

    ,
    Handmade numbered foldout card sleeve in a limited run of 100 copies… ‘Home’ is an album which spans more than 2,000 kilometres, two families and a lifetime of experiences. Darren Harper and Jared Smyth’s collaborative effort examines the spaces they have shaped as husbands, fathers and community members in the two very different towns of Tallahassee, Florida and Nederland, Colorado. Although the two men have never met, they have produced an album that explores the most intimate corners of their lives. Through the sounds of tinkling streams, children drumming, warm guitars and crunching ice, the pair have crafted an intensely personal album, which invites us into the parts of the world they have made their own. This is an album full of warmth, subtlety and power that explores what it means to call somewhere ‘home’. Mastered by: Jason Corder

    Listen To The Weather

    ,
    Limited edition run of 100 hand numbered copies resting in yellow paper sleeves with inserts… Listen to the Weather is a web-based project, produced for the Ear to the Earth festival, which uses sound to examine the role water plays in our ecosystem, as well as in our collective psyche. Contributing artists from various international locations begin with weather data from the area they live in and a sample from a song of their choice which references water. The data and samples are then combined to create a soundpiece that is unique both artistically and geographically. Starting with pure frequencies and samples draws attention to the raw data involved in studying our climate but also references the nuanced ways the environment informs our creative practices. Water already means different things to different people – growing up in drought-stricken Cyprus will give you a different understanding of its importance to living in rainy England. But as we respond to rising tides and more extreme climactic conditions it is set to shift in meaning once again. Listen to the Weather aims to explore how water has contributed to our understanding of being human and suggest that these understandings will shift as our climate changes.

    Seth Chrisman – Aetherdrift, Do You Copy

    ,
    Limited edition of 100 that comes in a numbered handmade sleeve, with an insert containing a personal message from Chisman introducing the EP… Flaming Pines’s first release for 2012 is a magical new EP by Seth Chrisman called ”Aetherdrift,, Do You Copy”. Chrisman hails from New Mexico in the USA, but drew heavily on sonic material gathered on a trip to Costa Rica to produce this memorable EP. Stumbling around after dark armed with a tape recorder and a radio, Chrisman said he returned home inspired by the ”lovely cacophony” produced by the mixture of natural sounds and fragmented AM radio transmisions. ”Aetherdrift” delicately and powerfully conveys both the euphoria and disorientation of travel — the sense of drift and near disembodiment experienced by every traveller as they arrive as a disconnected outsider to a new country. It is a subtle and sophisticated work which, with its emphasis on geography, travel and connections, is a terrific fit with the preoccupations of the Flaming Pines label, and we are very proud to be associated with it.
