Influenced by such composers as Sergei Rachmaninov, Valentin Silvestrov, Morton Subotnick, François Bayle and Iannis Xenakis, Ales Tsurko uses composition techniques from contemporary classical music and mixes them with elements from the non-academic and electronic fields of music, as well as post rock and shoegaze music.
Ales Tsurko is a self-taught composer from Minsk, Belarus. He is also the founder of the Society for the Development of New Music, the purpose of which is to develop and promote contemporary classical music. This is his first album on Preserved Sound
The CD features a fantastically detailed drawing from Bleeding Heart Narrative, folding out around the gatefold thick-card sleeve in a two colour print.
All copies come with a 12-panel foldout insert, and the 200 limited copies also include an extra two-colour numbered screenprint, and are also hand-numbered and sewn together.
Bridge Carols is the meeting of two artists with unique timeless approaches to music. Neo-Americana folk singer Laura Gibson is gifted with a soft and singular voice (not unlike the voices of Josephine Foster and Joanna Newsom) and writes songs that could date back a century or foretell a future rural life. Electronician Ethan Rose is vested in antiquated instruments and technologies – a sonic recycler who, out of the old, has been creating a new form of ambient music.
Talkingmakesnosense is Dominic Dixon of Glasgow who has been making music in one form or another since he was a child. Most recently, he’s been releasing records on the now sadly defunct Benbecula Records, and now a new album on Rural Colours.
Coruscates consists of four long-form tracks, each tipping past the ten-minute mark.
An edition of 100, CD and cover packaged in a translucent envelope.
