    Posted by in Reviews 0

    Fully encapsulated atmospheric emotion is thread throughout each piece of Sun Chapter. Calm, collected and engaging worlds are explored and effortlessly evolved in a plasma-induced stream of forward-moving melodies and glittering bubbles. Micro-layering of abstract details are buried deep within the (ambient) core as sheets of debris reminisce with lava flows of sun-soaked charm. There’s just […]

    Posted by in Reviews 0

    The title of Grzegorz Bojanek‘s latest effort implies sorting, attrition, deterioration.  At one time, more sounds – perhaps all sounds – existed.  Now, only these remain.  In the process of composing, Bojanek distilled a batch of possibilities, settling on these distinctive sources.  By eliminating the banal, the artist creates an aural allure.  Take for example the opening (title) […]

    In addition to being an absurdly talented designer, Ryan has been meticulously working on his debut album for about 8 years, and we are so very honored to be partnering with him in its release. Altogether mesmerizing, ‘Arc and Static’ is warm, sparse and ideal. Equally inspired by his daily commute as by Marsen Jules, Funkstorung, […]

    The Beautiful Schizophonic<q> [portugal]</q>

    “The Beautiful Schizophonic is the pseudonym of Portuguese audio artist Jorge Mantas. Starting this moniker in 2004, the artist soon developed his own vision of drone music through the composition of shimmering melodic layers, creating a delicate web of micro-textures and undulating waves of sounds. In records or in live performances, The Beautiful Schizophonic is […]

    It’s no secret that I’m an uber-fan of ambient—the more immersive and achingly drawn-out, the better. One of my favorite DIY/bedroom ambient record labels is called Dynamophone. Pretty much every single release they champion puts me in a “Can we go watch Solaris on Benadryl?” sort of mindset. The same is true for their latest, […]

    The album’s ten deeply ethereal settings conjure Victorian-styled universes where music boxes, rickety keyboards and strings re-animate the nightmarish current burbling below the surface of the Grimm brothers’ folk-tales… The Balustrade Ensemble believes ‘listening need not be difficult to be compelling,’ and its thoroughly engrossing Capsules is certainly proof of that.
