I had been thinking of making a long form static drone piece for quite some time, but I just wasn’t patient enough to actually do it. It takes some effort to let a sound be, and not being tempted to manipulate it. Though I won’t call my music very wild, the 20 minutes of ‘Elastiek’ are by far the most continuous I’ve done. And I think it’s best to listen to not as a musical piece, but more as an ongoing ‘state’. Obviously, there’s not much action in the composition, but it’s all in the details. The focus gradually shifts from one frequency to another, causing slow, barely perceptible movements. When I stretched out the piano tone used in this work, I noticed that I was listening to it like I would listen to a refrigerator, or some air vent… not looking for progress in the audio, but diving into the sound, and focusing on different beating frequencies, timbres and tones that are to be found when listening closely. Like dissecting it under a microscope. – Rutger

Flaming Pines’s first release for 2012 is a magical new EP by Seth Chrisman called ”Aetherdrift,, Do You Copy”.
Chrisman hails from New Mexico in the USA, but drew heavily on sonic material gathered on a trip to Costa Rica to produce this memorable EP.
Stumbling around after dark armed with a tape recorder and a radio, Chrisman said he returned home inspired by the ”lovely cacophony” produced by the mixture of natural sounds and fragmented AM radio transmisions.
”Aetherdrift” delicately and powerfully conveys both the euphoria and disorientation of travel — the sense of drift and near disembodiment experienced by every traveller as they arrive as a disconnected outsider to a new country.
It is a subtle and sophisticated work which, with its emphasis on geography, travel and connections, is a terrific fit with the preoccupations of the Flaming Pines label, and we are very proud to be associated with it.
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!

Hibernate Recordings kick off a new collaboration series with an ep from Isnaj Dui & Karina ESP. The goal for the series is to get two different artists on our roster to put their heads together to have some fun and do what they love best.
Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records. With a history of recording and musical study that spans back to 1995, Katie’s current sound is characterised by her use of flute, particularly the bass flute. This is generally a rarely used instrument but is used frequently throughout her work as a defining feature. Add to this a few home-made instruments and electronics and you have the very distinctive sound of Isnaj Dui, a project that has been active since 2004.
