“We in California are heading into the early days of summer… forest fire season is nigh upon us and it is just these sorts of forces of nature that bring us our May release. TRS063 is is a haunting and intense reflection on these natural forces from Kiel, Germany based artist, Morgen Wurde (Wolfgang Röttger)…and it is entitled “Brach Auf”. With it’s intense drones and dark swirling synths, liturgical vocals, and overall cinematic electronic feel, this is a soundtrack for watching the fires burn and the embers fly!” – TRS
As a sort of pantheist, or at least an artist who finds great stories hiding in the vast visual subtleties of nature – Subtle Trees is a classical music collage as much as it is an homage to classical music. It’s core is created through sounds gathered in the owl hours by sampling ancient instruments whose cores were derived from the trees of nature. These sounds were layered like lichen on an ancient pantheistic sculpture.
Haruki is the pseudonym of composer/sonic artist Boris Snauwaert from Ghent, Belgium, who creates sonic environments through the precise, meditated amalgamation of a diverse variety of sounds, both musical and non-musical. In any given track Haruki combines any or all sound sources; field recordings, acoustic instruments, acoustic noises, found samples, sampled instruments and so on.
