    Orla Wren – Soil Steps

    Following swiftly on from 2013’s ‘Book Of The Folded Forest’ (Home Normal) and 'The Blizzard That Birthed Her' (Facture) the new Orla Wren album ‘Soil Steps’ finds the ever itinerant tui divesting himself from his usual cadre of musical collaborators and travelling, solo, into the Spanish wilderness with a tent and a portable recorder.

    Recorded during months of wandering isolation in the Iberian fastness, a process only concluded when our hapless traveller contrived to break an ankle (high in the Sierra Nevada and minus any painkillers, a logical point at which to call time), ‘Soil Steps’ shifts focus from the enveloping ruminations of ‘Folded Forest’ to the more Spartan and spacious tones of the field recording discipline. Orla Wren devotees will not be disappointed, as tui refines and reduces his atomistic approach to composition in order to reveal its luminous essence.

    Inspired by and taken almost entirely from the natural sounds emanating from his chosen environment; recordings of insects, snakes, street musicians, the movement of warm wind through bamboo on a dry river bed and broken only by Eva Puyuelo’s occasional narration of tui's words (suggestive that a handful of thoughts could last all day).
    Creating, in the studio environment, a rich tapestry from the collected sounds, thoughts and feelings of the journey, tui conjures a music that is not at all lonely yet is profoundly alone.

    Benjamin Fingers – Ghost Figures

    Limited 300 copies LP 12″ Vinyl (incl. album download)…

    …are piano pieces recorded over the period of two years. The tracks are a collection of many hours of rehearsing and improvising alone in front of the piano. These sessions were recorded using a field recorder and then later processed and re-worked in the studio. It´s based largely around deceptively repetitive piano movements. Some of the tracks are very stripped down to their essential elements while others have been given a re-brush, adding new sounds beneath, such as cello and different instruments where it seemed fit. The use of various filters and pedals have been used occasionally to manipulate certain parts of the melodies. The idea behind the album was to let go of all kinds of emotions and just try to create an open minded album that could be both warm and melancholic but at the same time dramatic and dark. The album consists of 14 tracks.

    Ballerini – Beautiful Ground

    ,

    The creation of musical compositions starting from the recorded sounds is an imaginative transformation of the landscape and sound elements that most strongly express the identity of the communities Ballerini came across. This change projects the listener into parallel worlds, transcending the reality we experience in everyday life. Ballerini gives his listeners a work of strong emotional impact and creates sounds a step by step experience alone could produce, showing us a new land emerging from the old land. He mixes the soundscape of Le Marche, synthetic parts of electronic music, Italian ancient keyboard instruments from different periods recorded in the temple of San Francesco in Camerino and at the church of Cossignano, including organs, harpsichords and pianos.

    Leonardo Rosado – Adrift

    ,

    Every once in a while real and imaginary stories are the stuff that occupy our thoughts. They populate our dreams at every stage of our biography, they evolve backwards to previous iterations or leap forward to uncharted territories. Adrift was composed trying to capture this set of emotions, images and barely coherent scripts to give a glimpse of my own journey through sensations. The use of sound to convey emotions is perhaps the common denominator in all my work and the search for a universal code language is what I mostly want to achieve. Whether I am successful or not depends entirely on you, the listener, so I leave the scripts open to your own interpretations and I hope I succeed in some way at exposing emotions throughout the 7 pieces that together form the album. – LR
