Boomkat product review for:

marcus fjellstrom - Schattenspieler

With a title that translates as "Shadowplayer", this new album from the excellent Marcus Fjellstrom is quick to set the scene. Combining wonderfully crackly ambient textures with ancient sounding classical instrumentation, Fjellstrom's music is perhaps like a sonic equivalent to the cinema of the Brothers Quay or Guy Maddin in its stylised and revised recreation of something old, monochromatic and somehow already familiar. It's fairly commonplace to find ambient or dark-ambient works that channel this sort of run-down aesthetic , but Fjellstrom goes somewhat further by using real orchestration and then aging it. Consequently, there's so much more invested in Fjellstrom's music and his soundscapes are far richer than the kind of loop-driven, predominantly electronic material of his contemporaries. Particular highlights arise during the creaky, percussion-driven 'Liquid Fire' and the incredible woodwinds of 'Untitled 090616', but this marvellous album is best digested as a whole.
