Boomkat Product Review:
Dream hook-up from Hauschka and Hildur Gudnadottir, born out of a desire to create a series of compositions based on the idea of the ocean (the title alludes to their seeking to observe and record the sea's specific colours using a Pantone guide).
There's nothing wishy-washy about the collaboration, it's a dynamic, full-bodied and strongly narrative outing - with a percussive drive underscoring the expected cello, piano and electro-acoustics. While string virtuoso's Hildur's natural musical inclination is towards darker, shadowy realms, Hauschka favours a more uncomplicated beauty, meaning there's an agreeable tension and unpredictability at the heart of their collaborative work.
We're instinctively drawn to the stormier fare on board: with its bed of bassy drones and exquisite Celtic inflections up top, 'Black 6' conjures the inner thoughts of a 19th century galleon crew who've just lost a man overboard, while '#320's blend of gravely arcing strings and insectoid chatter makes us think of an Oren Ambarchi live workout. If you've enjoyed Hauscha and Hildur's acclaimed solo work then be sure to check this one out - it's every inch the sum of its parts.
