"Berlin-based composer Nils Frahm has fast become know as a prolific performer and recording artist with the piano at the core of his work. Piano Day is an official body created by Nils and his closest friends, and will house various exciting, piano-related projects. The first project revealed by the Piano Day team is the building of what will be world’s tallest piano: the Klavins 450. As the life-long dream of David Klavins, it even exceeds the currently largest upright piano there is, the Klavins M370.

WILLIAM BASINSKI

Cascade

2062

Format_dot_cdCD // £10.99

MODERN CLASSICAL / AMBIENT

Cat. Number: 2062.1501

William Basinski returns with 'Cascade' - a gorgeous 40 minute meditation on a solitary piano loop coaxed by NYC's neoclassical maestro, William Basinski. Teechnically, that's all you really need to know, but we should stress that Basinski's way with a loop transcends any prosaic, earthly description and manifests a music in its own self-sufficient world of infinitely morphing harmonics and decay as imperceptibly slow moving yet ever-changing as life itself. Highly Recommended.

The astonishing 'Visitations' is an engulfing wash of rhythmically fluid field recordings, flutes, synths and percussion realised in 1973 by Jon Gibson - a pivotal member of the 20th century American avant-garde who can claim to be the only person who performed in the world premieres of Terry Riley's 'In C', Steve Reich's 'Drumming, and Philip Glass' 'Einstein on the Beach'. First released by Glass' Chatham Square Productions, 'Visitations' was Gibson's debut solo recording. It made a distinct departure from the deliberately structured minimalist compositions of his peers, preferring a more a… Read more

**Gorgeous dream-pop and warbly, Basinski-esque ambient music** ""The basis of the album was a series of field recordings of tones and unintentional harmonies that I made in the summer & fall of 2013 - whistling industrial air conditioners, bird songs, locust drones, washing machines - that I mimicked or interpreted on the guitar, making loops that developed into fuller compositions. Several of the pieces are recreations of harmony loops that I heard in a series of extraordinarily vivid dreams, and then woke up and recorded. A few pieces had lyrics and vocal parts that I ultimately removed; at … Read more

Richard Chartier's Line label is at its best with Triac's gorgeous 2nd album of diaphanous drones. 'Days' could be taken as a measure of time, or equally as a pun on the lush effect of their music, presenting a barely-there suite of near-baroque melodic gestures that seem to float in mid-air, as though either moving very slowly or as a midnight mirage conjured by some gauzy mind. Within its seven pieces, ranging from pop-ambient temporality thru ten minute trips, they seem to capture the resonant, lingering after-thoughts of their instruments - Rossano Polidoro (laptop), Marco Seracini (piano, synth)… Read more

CHARLEMAGNE PALESTINE - Four Manifestations On Six Elements, Alga Marghen
*New remastered version* "One of Charlemagne Palestine's best-known works, "Four Manifestations On Six Elements". "Two Perfect Fifths, A Major Third Apart, Reinforced Twice" (1973) is an electronic piece that deals with the search for the essence of timbre, sound color, through exploration of the inert chemical activity in the overtone series of tone fundamentals. In this genre of his work Palestine feels akin to a kind of sound alchemist - blending elements over and over again through the years searching for the Golden Sound - the essence of the chord or harm… Read more
