DEPARTMENT OF FOREVER - UNSEEN PICTURES
Department Of Forever is a new musical outing for Irish Sound Designer/Musician, Steve Fanagan. Unseen Pictures is a collection of ambient/drone music. The songs were originally improvised and recorded over a few days and then chopped up, edited, reworked and constructed into the 9 tracks included here. It is a deeply personal piece of work and mediative in nature. This album was very much inspired by Steve’s sound design work in film over the last decade. One of the tracks, A Simulation Of Here, was recently used by Irish filmmaker Tadhg O'Sullivan for his film contribution to the exhibition 'A Visibility Matrix' curated by Sven Anderson and Gerard Byrne, which initially exhibited at The Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin last summer.
c o m t e - OF CLEAR LIGHT
A meditation on loss & grief, imagining the unknown, what worlds, sensations, we encounter during and after we cross over along with the feelings one experiences when someone leaves this earth.
Mixing organic field recordings, murky analog experiments and warbling synths, buried beneath textured grit & grain the tracks sit somewhere between ambient and dub techno.The aim of 'Of Clear Light' light is to create an emotional, mystical, uncertain, yet somewhat comforting journey. Recommended listening on headphones and preferably from start to finish.
NOISE TREES - PAPER SONGS
Noise Trees is a solo project from Helsinki-based musician and composer Jukka Koops. Paper Songs is an album that revolves around ambient textures, repetition, and scarcity. Film scores with the film gone missing, as a friend puts it.
The album was recorded and mixed over two weeks in June 2019. The Ghost Piano and the field recordings were recorded in and around a family home in Northern Ostrobothnia. Synthesizers, guitar pedals, and some construction and reconstruction work were done at Noise Trees studio in Helsinki.
M SHUTAK - THE WIDOW'S HOUSE
M Shutak's debut release "The Widows House" is a record made of memories and feeling that captures a mood and a moment in time. Drifting piano pieces meld with warm, subtle electronics and the scratched lilting fiddle melodies. The pair opened microphones to the outside world as they recorded this collection. Found sounds along with synths, radios and toy pianos form gentle, emotive sound-beds that underpin the record. The result is a record which sounds like a old creaking house in Spring with the windows left open.
c o m t e - In The Between
A video for 'In The Between' from the album 'Of Clear Light' by c o m t e. This video by John Cowhie perfectly captures the mood of the record.
DEPARTMENT OF FOREVER - A SIMULATION OF HERE
