Ben Lukas Boysen

Not, as I was hoping, an entire recreation of the 1982 Fleetwood Mac album but the latest opus from Berlin-based (where else?) composer Ben Lukas Boysen (Hecq). His previous work Spells gained him lots of admirers including Jon Hopkins who remixed a track. Mirage is intended to do the opposite of the heavily programmed Spells and make an album where the human touch is visible. Like the title suggests, it is intended to be somewhat of an aural illusion to the listener.

Golden Times 1

Ben Lukas Boysen hands over his tracks Golden Times 1 and ‘Nocturne 4’ (taken from the album Spells) to both Max Cooper and Tim Hecker(!) for some vivid and idiosyncratic reworkings. The EP is rounded out with a new Boysen original in the form of ‘Evensong’. 12” on Erased Tapes.

Ben Lukas Boysen & Sebastian Plano

If this isn't the most appropriate and on brand of Erased Tapes releases, I don't know what is. The quaintly classical and electronic label release the soundtrack to David O'Reilly's open world, choose-your-own-adventure video game that lets you project yourself into a tiny plant cell or a huge star. The vibes scored in this spectrum of extremes are provided by Ben Lukas Boysen and Sebastian Plano, composers who know how to create weight in the heart for you to heave -- their soundtrack is nearly four hours long and comes with spoken word amblings by Alan Watts, a philosopher just about lofty enough for this massive undertaking of a game.
