Twice Removed are proud to announce the release from Andrea Ricci called “Blend”. Andrea Ricci born 1989 is a meticulous listener of gloomy landscapes, mountains and small abandoned spaces surrounding him. He loves the plasticity of sound. His exploration into electronic music began in 2009, focusing on the most extreme dark ambient patterns. His approach to composition evolves through synthesizers and carefully stolen natural noises, which help him creating a “modus vivendi”, to combine together the audio around with the idea of sound he has in mind. “Blend” is the release following on from the ultra limited edition “NTSCL” on the defunct Somehow Recordings and features Field Recordings and processed synthesizer to create walls of sound over the 19 minutes of the piece.

Pascal Savy returns with further deconstructions and the application of fairly mind bending physics and philosophies to composition (rhizome, phase differentiation and deterritorialization) – namely the use of erosion, decay, control (or lack of), connectivity & heterogeneity, tonal mutations and cross pollination to allow his works to organically grow with lives of their own.
The four tracks within are really rather lovely representations and interpretations of this processing style which include a kit and source list of: A couple of piano samples recorded in a disused Norfolk windmill (hang on… a piano…in a windmill?) plucked and bowed guitar, processed sine waves, FM synth, a self-oscillating analogue filter, a turntable, monome and handheld recorder with found sounds from a French church and Kew Gardens….nice!
Ekca Liena is an alias of Daniel W J Mackenzie which concentrates on the celestial, melancholic and sometimes blissful side of ambient music. Over the range of his enchanting, mainly long-form compostions there is a clear influence from ritual psychedelic, noise, doom, post-rock and at times modern classical arrangement. His discography has seen work on a variety of labels including Dead Pilot, Small Doses and Entropy and with an enormous amount of material currently in the works this list is hoped to expand.
