Boomkat Product Review:
Prolific Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Hanno Leichtmann teams up with vocalist Annie Garlid (aka UCC Harlo) and a cadre of additional players on this bewitching minimalist droner.
The seeds of Chromacolor were sown when Leichtmann borrowed a Fender Rhodes electric piano and a vibraphone from friends, using these instruments - along with the Guitaret, an electric lamellophone that works like an mbira - to sketch out a sequence of tracks. The finishing touches came from Garlid, who adds her trained, wordless vocalizations to each track, and a team of Leichtmann's musician friends, who "play small but vital parts in the production of the album."
It's a record that hinges itself on percussion; the evocative hits of the vibraphone or rattling Guitaret provide the album with an immediately audible character that Leichtmann is able to toy with from one track to the next. Taking his cues from 20th Century minimalism, he matches his shimmering 'Music For 18 Musicians' patterns with Garlid's operatic coos - it's quite lovely, too.
