New Release by Seren Ffordd Today!

Seren Ffordd – Fractured III – Shards [rM_0045]

We are thrilled to announce the release of Seren Ffordd’s release – Fractured III – Shards.  Here’s what the artist has to say about his album:

rM_0045_SerenFfordd_FracturedIII_300x300‘Shards’ is the third album in a trilogy titled ‘Fractured’.

As a whole the three album project was inspired by the thought that the first act of any musician is to break the silence, rending the quiet by pouring sound into the waiting space as gently as an unfolding rose or as savagely as a lightning strike – all three albums explore that sense of fracture in the sounds themselves and how they are manipulated to create the music, the atmospheres…

‘Shards’ was created as a softer companion piece to the other two albums. It is more dreamy and evocative, the sounds not so much torn and shattered as shifted and slanted. Not so much the stone as it hits the still surface of a quiet pool, but more the ripples of the water from the impact as they reach the pools edges. The sounds changing gently at the edge of hearing, sliding between form and chaos and back again.

On ‘Shards’ every sound is acoustic in origin. Sources include: Wine glass, water, CDs being bent or broken, glass beads, singing bowls, bells, tin foil, breathing etc – many of the original sounds are unrecognisable, having been passed through various effects a number of times. Sometimes the same sound is heard through different effects, creating the shifting textures and tones.

Elemental Gathering – review by A Closer Listen

rM_0041_Arbee-SpectaCiera_ElementalGathering_300x300A very lovely review from A Closer Listen on Arbee / Specta Ciera – Elemental Gathering.

http://acloserlisten.com/2014/07/06/electronic-observations-4/

arbee is Mathieu Lamontagne from Quebec, spectra ciera is Massachusetts-based Devin Underwood. Both are prolific electronic artists with a taste for collaboration in their work, with a string of shared credits behind them, although this is their first outing together. They’ve never met but thanks to a decent broadband connection and a dose of inspiration they’ve madeElemental Gathering, a combination of new age-style whooshy synths and taut electro-inspired funk laced through with a good amount of dubby space. It’s an understated release and takes a few plays to get under the skin but when it works, it works beautifully – “Pomme Grenade” has just the right amount of whoosh over a muscular yet dialled back rhythm pattern, “En Pleine Ascension” is a slice of dub techno that gets surprisingly dense before stripping the elements away again for maximum impact. It doesn’t all flow – it might have been wise to have found “Turn Around” a home elsewhere – but overall it’s a high strike rate. Score another for the internet.

Review: Robert Scott Thompson – Arcana by Textura

rM0039_RST_Arcana_300x300Robert Scott Thompson: Arcana 
Relaxed Machinery

Textura: http://textura.org/reviews/thompson_arcana.htm

Electroacoustic composer Robert Scott Thompson has built up an impressive discography over the years, which might make it difficult for someone coming to his music for the first time to know where to begin. As it turns out, his latest collection, Arcana, would seem to be as good a point of entry as any for a couple of reasons (even if Thompson himself cites The Silent ShoreFrontier, andAt the Still Point of the Turning World as Arcana‘s kin): its breadth, for one, given that its nine pieces cover many of the stylistic bases touched upon in his previous recordings; and quite simply its quality, as the material is at the same high level in terms of compositional writing and sound design as his best work.

Issued on ambient composer Steve Brand’s Relaxed Machinery imprint rather than Thompson’s own Aucourant Records label, Arcana is, according to its creator, an example of “classical ambient,” a style of long standing that emphasizes languor, nuance, and subtlety over epic, beat-driven structures in its arrangements of synthesized and acoustic—prepared piano among them—elements. But while percussion might play a lesser role on the seventy-minute set, it’s not wholly absent as Stuart Gerber is credited with contributing percussion samples and performances to the album.

Regardless of the ambient character of the material, Arcana ‘s tracks, each one a distinct world from the others, overflow at every moment with detail and incident. The seeming pluck of a string instrument (though it may well be a keyboard) drifts across the oceanic expanses of the shimmering title track, for example, whereas cowbells tinkle o’ertop a base of synth washes and cavernous rumbles within “Night Has a Thousand Eyes.” During “Liminal Worlds,” wordless choral voices intone amidst sparse Rhodes patterns and echo-laden synthetic flourishes, while an Asian character seeps into the material during “Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight,” arguably the album’s most sonically rich soundscape.

Many a setting is peaceful, but there are some, such as “Imagination is Memory,” that suggest geological force of towering strength and magnitude, and the piano-heavy exploration “Unwoven” is similarly unafraid to wade into dissonant waters. In Thompson’s ponderous scene-paintings, icy sheets of sound stretch themselves across immense, flat surfaces. Don’t be thrown off by the ambient label associated with his music: listening to these mist-cloaked electronic landscapes proves to be a compelling and rewarding experience.

Review: Broken Harbour- The Geometry of Shadows by historic_bruno

rM0031_Broken Harbour_TheGeometryOfShadows_300x300Lacking some magic perhaps from the previous release Gramophone TransmissionsBroken Harbour returns with The Geometry of Shadows, nonetheless a piece of fine high-quality ambient music. It retains many of the same characteristics, but obviously differs in the lack of classical samples, tending instead toward traditional ambient music. There is some influence of space ambient, but for the most part it presents a stationary and glimmering, pleasant atmosphere, rather than a more kinetic sound. Certainly, there is an uplifting feel to the whole, warm yet sparse; not as dramatically emotive as Gramophone Transmissions. It feels like one suite instead of six distinct tracks, nearly all of which are over 11 minutes in length.

The Geometry of Shadows is very cohesive, and that combined with the strong composition and excellent sound quality, earns this release an easy 4 star rating from me. It’s nothing ground breaking, but these days little in the ambient genres truly is, and here Broken Harbour demonstrate a mastery of ambient music and a unique style. Once again, music for headphone listening.

Review: Steve Brand, Roy Mattson – Meltstream by Richard Gürtler

rM_0042_Brand-Mattson_Meltstream_300x300Steve Brand needs no bigger introduction here, he is constantly confirming his reputation as one of the giants of primordial shamanistic electroacoustic soundsculpting. But Roy Mattson comes here as a new name on the ambient map. Based in Stony Creek, NY, Roy Mattson has been making music for many years, but according to my knowledge, he didn’t share it until 2013, when his collaboration with Mystified “Pluto And Charon” was released on Treetrunk Records (July, 2013). Steve Brand and Roy Mattson have met for the first time on Steve Roach’s Into The Soundcurrent workshop in Sonoita, Arizona in September, 2007. And that was the triggering point for “Meltstream”. The album comes in beautiful 4-panel digipak, for sure both artists and Relaxed Machinery deserve this catchy packaging, a way to continue!!!

10-minute opener “My Shadow And The Morning Sun” quickly shifts into gorgeously ethereal spheres, attractively melting distant drone undulations with evocative string subtleties. Drifting, expanding and peaking into heavier, unbounded realms, before inconspicuously transmuting into lushly colored primordial paradise led by tranquilly swirling, rattling and embracing cacophony of various eclectic shakers and rumbles. I am really hooked on this track!!! “Just Above Treeline” graciously floats and meanders on soothingly waving cloudbeds of gorgeously majestic pensiveness. Ancient whistles quietly sneak in during the second half and take the listener deeper into enthralling contemplative realms. “Leeward Shadows”, the longest piece clocking to nearly 15 and half minutes, immediately dives into monstrously abyssal drone depths. Watch your speakers, because that’s a really huge drone blaze, but fortunately soon joined by the graceful symphony of panoramic drifts, enhanced by intensifying blankets and pierced with mysteriously crescendoing reverberations. Crickets are awaken too during this nocturnal magic and deliver their chirping virtuosity, while assortment of bells illuminate the path to the gates… Psychically supreme and spectacularly transcendental magnum opus awaits here. Bravissimo, Gentlemen!!! “Meltstream”, the title composition, returns into earthy wistful terrains filled with warmly ebbing wide-screen reflections, masterfully unfolding into thrillingly immersing vistas, which slowly metamorphose along the way into magnificently expanding and imposingly culminating drone scenario. Another breathtaking tribute to surrounding natural wonders, more please!!! “Unlost [Strange Lights & Firefly Stars]” starts with ear-bending drone escapade, soon the journey calms down a bit, but the drifting intensity is still absolutely unfathomable and mindscaping. Lushly colored field recordings inconspicuously permeate through mysteriously dark, moonlit landscape, but then spiritedly interact with gargantuan dronewaves. Utterly embracing!!! A grand finale? Sure, it was!!!

What to add? I am short of words, because it’s the music that speaks for itself, you must fully experience “Meltstream”, because otherwise you will miss one of the most glorious dronescaping adventures released in last few years. Steve Brand did it again, but that’s nothing surprising anymore and for Roy Mattson this turned as a really great introductory performance. “The Great Hoop” was one of the ultimate sonic jewels of 2013 and now, “Meltstream”, a 67-minute long soundsculpting magic is heading for the same title in 2014. Hats off to Steve & Roy!!! The official release date is scheduled for May 30th, the countdown is running!!!
