£10.00 £5.00

M. Ostermeier first two releases were both in mini-album form:  Percolate on [parvo art] and Lakefront on Hibernate.  These releases garnered strong reviews in The Wire, Textura, and The Silent Ballet for juxtaposing melancholic stillness with restrained post-rock urgency.  Throughout, the fragmented piano infused with electronic textures and field recordings established a melancholic and reflective mood but more through style than through melody.

Here on Chance Reconstruction, his first full-length release, both mood and melody come into focus.  The acoustic piano provides a warmth and familiarity that offsets the abstract electronics and field recordings that decorate the periphery.  Unlike the thick melancholy that filled every corner of Lakefront, Chance Reconstruction at times displays a wistful playfulness and at others a peaceful contentment that comes from accepting the world as it is.  But even as the form shifts from meandering tone poems to miniature Goldmund-esque piano pieces, there is no doubt that the operating word still is ‘melancholy.’  This inward, reflective stillness permeates this debut release for Tench.
