    Bionulor – Furniture Music

    Professionally manufactured high quality CDr's, limited to 30 copies. Handmade artwork, each hand numbered. Different metallic wallets with envelopes. Wallets 250g paper, outside cover envelope 120g paper, transparent bag...
    “Furniture Music” is – after “Erik” (2012) and “Vexations” EP. (2014) – the third one from the series of Bionulor’s records dedicated to the person and work of Erik Satie.  This particular one is inspired by Satie’s idea of „musique d'ameublement” , but also – to some extent – by the way John Cage had interpreted the piece “Vexations” during the first public performance. Bionulor, as always, invites you to deeply immerse yourself in sound... but this time also to use “Furniture Music” while cleaning, washing up, reading, taking a nap or even sunbathing...

The Rain, the sun, the moon, the sound of birds, the sound of the wind, my love for the northern winters and the snow...my home in Minnesota and my home in Colombia. I let the organics of nature guide the songs. It's like a detailed soundscape of what I really see, and of what these places made me feel. It's sound healing. My medicine. My animal heart.

    Andrew Tasselmyer – Resonant Moments

    Handmade artwork, each hand numbered. Different colored wallets with envelopes.  Wallets 250g paper, outside cover envelope 120g paper, transparent bag... Looking back on the past year – the most fulfilling of my life – I find particular truth in Benjamin’s eloquent description of the power of resonant memories to transcend time and context. My reflection doesn’t reveal frozen, sequential timestamps; rather, these experiences live, breathe, and resonate even more today than they did when they occurred. Time collapses. - AT Similarly, this album is my necessary attempt to distill individual sights, sounds, and feelings from December 2015 – October 2016 into a tangible collection. Field recordings capturing particularly Resonant Moments across the US, Canada, China, India, and the Caribbean were injected into the most honest reflections I could compose.

    Snufmumriko – At First Light

    Professionally manufactured high quality CDr's, limited to 40 copies. Handmade artwork, each hand numbered. Brown kraft wallets with envelopes. Wallets 250g paper, outside cover envelope 120g paper, transparent bag... One of the themes of this album is, I would say, dawn, new beginnings, taking the first steps on a new journey and so on, and many of the sounds used on it were recorded early in the morning. Several feature water, be it rain or a gently burbling forest stream. The recorded sounds were then processed in various ways to create soundscapes which hopefully have something of the life and organic feel of nature in them. A commentator online once described my Snufmumriko music as ”soundscape cloth woven from field recordings” or something along those lines, and i think that’s an apt description. There’s also an almost spiritual dimension to these tracks, and I was often in a very introspective mood as I created them. - SM

    øjeRum – Naar Vi Vaagner

    Professionally manufactured high quality CDr's, limited to 60 copies.  Handmade artwork, each hand numbered. Different color wallets with envelopes.  Wallets 250g paper, outside cover envelope 120g paper, transparent bag... The next level of øjeRum sound comes into full bloom on Hvid Hvile Sort Ro and Naar Vi Vaagner, still rooted in the same melancholic minimalist hypnotic repetition, but here it takes on a more dynamic styling, a more nuanced character, a more profound close listening experience, neatly connecting the dots within the correlated set of William Basinski, Brian Eno, Greg Gorlen, Tim Hecker and Skittish Arm, as øjeRum applies his fragmented folk modus operandi to his long form ambient noir outlet, yielding two striking collected works that are more immediately engrossing than his more involved epics He Remembers There Were Gardens (his alternate soundtrack to the film La Jette) and Syrenen while remaining just as potent and immersed. Highest possible recommendation. - PSI LAB

    Limited Liability Sounds – Surrounding Countryside

    ,
    It was our reading of an American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, or Life in the Woods that inspired and encouraged us to create Surrounding Countryside. In the narrative the author himself reduces his interest in material economy for the sake of spiritual wealth and by his complete immersion in the world of nature he is able to free himself for study and thought. When not busy with his domestic chores, Thoreau committed himself passionately to observing and recording of the flora and fauna near Concord. He seemed to perceive nature as a fruitful source of excitement. I read Walden when I make my first professional field recordings and sound effects. Surrounding Countryside is an emotional experience I passed through on the outskirts of a big city where I spent a couple of hot summer days recording the world around me as it really is like. Limited Liability Sounds latest enthusiastic response to a fast-changing world of music is a cautious attempt to produce ambient music which is more of a reflection than interpretation of the natural world. I hope this latest record of LLS will be a real treat for all sojourners in civilized life.

    Zander One – Emerald Awaking

    ,
    “Inspired by the thick haze of the Ohio summer, Emerald Awakening explores the sonic realms embodied in the incandescent vapor hanging over the Cuyahoga Valley. As the awakening of spring permeates into every corner of the atmosphere, warm pads begin to take shape and form, backed by the gentle rhythm of the valley coming alive once more. Organic melodies layer the cloudy sky, through sun and storm, with a culmination of the gentle transition to autumn.” This album includes two remixes from Coppice Halifax and Shea McGilvray.

    Bengalfuel – Rapalyea

    ,
    Bengalfuel have crafted another glorious collection of ambient synthesizer mysteria, ranging from celestial awe to their signature haunted solace. Lush pads avalanche to form a sonic terrain like cinematic future landscapes, embracing calm desolation over busy layering; the tracks are direct yet majestic in stature. Only in the final piece does this quiet world begin to teem with life and does so as if riots have broken out, seemingly everything that was held back is unleashed in a massive fury of factory-powered beats and melodic firestorms: an immense atmosphere capping off a most splendid musical journey, in many respects among Bengalfuel’s very best.

    Benjamin Finger – Motion Reverse

    ,
    ith the dust only just settling from the release of the delicate ambient textures of “Pleasurably Lost” on Eilean Rec. in april, Benjamin Finger returns with “Motion Reverse” on Shimmering Moods Records. Coming from someone in an apparent state of creative overdrive “Motion Reverse” is a surprisingly singular and coherent body of work that comes off as a bit of a side mission for an artist that has made “Onward!” his very own artistic slogan. “Motion Reverse” escapes the possible limitations implied by such a guiding imperative and sees an artist that, in accordance with the title, perhaps steps back a bit and completes a puzzle envisioned from pieces and patterns scattered around in his previous work. The result is a refreshing and nicely scheduled departure from Finger’s overall artistic journey, I soon and very readily referred to it as “the dirty dub album” and that is indeed how I like to quickly sum it up in my mind tenfolds of listens later. There is a playful hands-on approach at work here, immediately evident on the opening track “Vocal Limited”, where Finger creates melodic and rhythmic patterns by performing a vocal sample through time variations on what appears to be a tape delay. The following two tracks – “Frontal Waves” and “Dubstore Light” – mirrors each other and form a hypnotic, shimmering and pulsating dub-suite on their own that sounds like the classic dub of Basic Channel psychedelically reimagined, with the ghost of early Seefeel chanting in the background. “Childish Tape” is a playful interim with a sample of a child in joyous self discovery before the first half of the album is summed up and dissolved in “Black Hat”. The second half of the album is more neatly organized in melodic pieces, still with a strong foundation in dub. “Sunny Echoes” and “Spacecore Dust” have – titles aside – a nice nocturnal feel to them, both with a lovely reminiscence of stuff we used to find on releases from labels like Skam and Source back in the nineties and the latter admittedly being an Autechre tribute. The album then closes with two tracks – “Bright Exit”, that sounds like a subtly sung phonetic blues about the massive and grand finale of the drone-like massive synth washes of “Dream Logic”. The artwork is done by Benjamin himself and the Super 8 mm stills are from his visual work: «Loops The Loop», which was screened at Smith ́s Row Gallery in the UK and at Cinema Neuf in Norway 2013.

    TimeDog – The Fragile Present

    ,
    TimeDog is a moniker of multi-instrumentalist and experimental composer Pete Burton. His music is an organic and personal journey. Improvisation and long live takes are critical for his sound as a means to translate aspects of the human condition as directly as possible. The variation and diversity in themes and styles found throughout this album is a direct result of this compositional process. His music is largely made in his Glasgow based studio on a variety of hardware analogue and digital synthesizers, guitars, piano and a multitude of percussion instruments with field recordings also woven into some of his pieces. The opener takes the listener into a digital dreamscape, improvised in one take, leading us into the epic ambient excursion of “The Pilgrimage”. The music then darkens in mood with the bowed guitar-driven “Ancient Tales” brooding ominously before a shower of hailstorms marks the begining of “Fear of Change”, a Cage inspired avant-garde bed of chaotic percussion traversing through haunting piano structures (recorded in the piano carrells of a local library). “The Gateway” offers us exactly that, through its guitar-led, poignant melody we find ourselves bathed in the warmth of “Beyond Love”. From there the album leads us through multiple dimensions of sound including the wall of percussion in “Let Them In”, the melancholic looped field recordings of “Conversations”, the counterpoint guitars in “Counters” and the drones of “Soul Mother”. Finally we’re back in the piano room with a delicate and beautiful piece that reminds us that our presence in the present is always fragile.

    Macheteoxidado – Viento De Las Montañas

    ,
    Rain is pouring from dark clouds, and there is a harmonica which sounds trapped at the bottom of a well. The ground is waterlogged and can accept no more. Water floods down the slope, towards a valley. There is in fact a well at the bottom of this valley, and you are going in. The well leads to a tunnel. You’d light a match but you were drenched in the storm. The sound of something distant thrashing echoes toward you. You walk in a direction you hope is opposite to the source, and towards a sound you hear in the wind rushing through the tunnel. This place is unknown, but not hostile. Curiosity is the word. You come into a room that is lit not by fire, but fluorescent fixtures somewhere you cannot see. This is the lobby of a labyrinth. There is a hole in the stone ceiling, all the way up to the sky. Some rain falls through and cascades into a fountain in the center of the waiting room. You are called by a cloaked receptionist and led through a door. You enter a long passage way, a catwalk suspended over an abyss. There is a different kind of light in here. You are going to the other side. You have to crawl on your way across, grab the edges, because of the wind blowing across the path. A soft purple glow comes up from the endless altitude of this cavern. It doesn’t seem like the worst thing to let yourself go, but you keep crawling.

    Michiru Aoyama – In a Dream

    ,
    Michiru Aoyama is a 29 year old ambient composer from Kyoto. He studied electronic music in Berlin and the result of that journey led him to ambient music. Fast forward a couple of years and the young producer has managed to showcase an understanding of experimental music that rivals that of already established artists in the genre. His most recent piece, which holds the title “In A Dream” will be a true soundtrack for the ambient aficionado worldwide. The album opener To You, Relax, gently leads the listener into a warm and calm world where the noise of everyday life seems too far to notice and too soft to interrupt. Relaxation seems to be the name of the game and Aoyama sounds like a capable game master. Sparse layers of synths are laid on top of gentle drones and waves of field recordings and the result is a wonderfully serene experience. The music is exactly what it should be and nowhere does it feel like it becomes overly ambitious or eclectic, which does wonders for the consistency of the overall sound. Pure, organic sounding ambient music by Michiru Aoyama for Shimmering Moods Records. Highly limited CD, 100 hand-numbered copies with beautiful artwork in a special package with numbered photos.

    Gallery Six – Gasansui

    ,
    Amazing floating ambient music on Shimmering Moods Records. Highly limited CD, 100 copies worldwide, with beautiful artwork in a special package... Hidekazu Imashige aka Gallery Six is an artist and composer who lives in Hiroshima, Japan. For his new album “Gasansui” he has crafted a delicate collection of ambient moodscapes which are ideal for relaxation and introspection. Each track is a gorgeous picture come to life where the sound of birds chirping, water dripping or leaves rustling are underpinned by a bed of majestic keys and soothing pads. Green grass or blue water is often subdued or altogether washed out, allowing the music’s form to disappear in mist, as though it is being played from somewhere deep within a painting that threatens to swallow those who look upon it.
