Nightports with Matthew Bourne
Nightports with Matthew Bourne

Here we see the celebrated Matthew Bourne taking up the challenge of Adam Martin and Mark Slater’s Nightports project. Starting with sounds generated by Bourne’s piano/prepared piano playing, the base materials are then manipulated into winding corridors of composition reminiscent of Nils Frahm, Max Richter and the recent collaborative record between Brian Eno and Tom Rogerson, Finding Shore.

MMMD
Andromache

Leading chamber droners MMMD follow up their monolithic, triple 10" from the year gone with a tape in homage to and mourning a good friend. All recorded from within an apartment, it's a rework of the duo's old material, this time coming in a different but just as sparse set up: piano and sine waves mark this sorta-remix release.

Jherek Bischoff
Cistern

Fresh from performing 'Black Star' with pals at the recent Bowie tribute thing in New York, composer Jherek Bischoff has clambered into an empty two million gallon water vat in Washington state in order to improvise the pieces that have become 'Cistern'. While there he reflected on growing up on a sailing boat (none of these people have normal childhoods do they?) Anyway the result is this stellar album of orchestral innovation.   

Max Richter
Hostiles (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

You sure can count on Max Richter to deliver works of sweeping cinematic power, and so it's no surprise that he has increasingly been composing music for actual cinema. Hostiles, a film set in the violent Wild West of the late 1800’s, gets a big dramatic blockbuster score that alternates between lush orchestrals and tense percussives.

Matt Dunkley
Cycles 7-16

Matt Dunkley's continuation of orchestral works sees the modern composer utilise a variety of styles, at times verging on the grandiose, always retaining a filmic drama. Fans of Max Richter will be pleased to notice a yearning melancholy, the slow fluttering strings of 'Cycle 11' being a good case in point.

Luke Howard
Sun, Cloud

Sun, Cloud has previously only been made available in Australia, but no more! Now us UK folks can enjoy Luke Howard’s music for ourselves. Piano is firmly at the centre of these compositions, spinning delicate neo-classical melodies into the air, where strings, electronics and field recordings mingle and add texture. Sun, Cloud is luscious stuff really. Released on vinyl by Mercury KX.

The One Ensemble
Saint Seven

The One Ensemble created Saint Seven to be played ‘in the round’. Folk and chamber music are combined with experimental and improvised passages. The musicians sing, play cello, guitar, bass clarinet, accordion, drums and percussion creating a piece of music that is austere at times but then will explode into a full-on dramatic power.

Those Who Walk Away
The Infected Mass

Those Who Walk Away is a contemporary music project helmed by composer Matthew Patton, also incorporating members of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra. New piece The Infected Mass mixes classical instrumentation with sinister drones and, remarkably, recordings from the black boxes of aircraft in distress, which certainly makes this a powerful listen. Released by Constellation.

Poppy Ackroyd
Resolve

Poppy Aykroyd continues to enhance our lives with her take on modern classical music. With a hypnotic persistence reminiscent of Nils Frahm, Philip Glass, and Hauschka, her compositions on Resolve will engulf you in spiralling patterns of piano, glitchy electronics, and whatever else she could find in the orchestra pit. And just to be absolutely positive: if you're expecting a Blues Brothers spin-off solo project, you will be disappointed.

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
Life Story Love And Glory

Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm are pretty much the dream team if you are a fan of the Erased Tapes aesthetic. Life Story Love And Glory is a 7” containing some casually improvised piano duets, inventive and intimate. The vinyl is exclusive to record stores like ourselves, and may hint towards further future work...

James Green
Donkey Jukebox

Donkey Jukebox started life as an art installation by James Green in a Yorkshire pub. Green created pieces of music by looping phrases he played on a French lap organ and weaving them into nonrepeating linear soundscapes. Artist and musician Green is hardly prolific as a solo artist, this being only his second album in 13 years, but in that time he has also formed The Big Eyes Family Players and collaborated with Alasdair Roberts.

Lanterns On The Lake
Live With Royal Northern Sinfonia

Documentation of Newcastle’s Lanterns On The Lake performing a remarkable live show with the forty-piece Royal Northern Sinfonia orchestra. Ten of the band’s tracks have been expanded and spun out to incorporate the full scope of the orchestra’s power, offering we listeners grander versions of the material. Double LP release from Bella Union.

Peter Broderick
All Together Again

Docile post-folk ambienteer Peter Broderick strings together a decade’s worth of private commissions for this 2LP collection on Erased Tapes. Young Pete has admirers in all corners; there’s even an honest-to-god fashion runway piece. While the tracks comprising All Together Again are unrelated, their instrumental composition and style are consistent enough to be of interest even to cautious fans.

Philip Glass
Low Symphony

Philip Glass took three recordings from the sessions of 'Low' -- David Bowie's most famous collaboration with Brian Eno, and his first foray into kraut influenced rock (the first in his Berlin trilogy) -- and turned them into this symphony. The tracks in question are all instrumentals: "Warszawa", "Subterraneans" and "Some Are". It was performed by the Brooklyn Philharmonic orchestra.

The Berlin Music Ensemble conducted by Craig Leon
The Film Scores and Original Orchestral Music of George Martin

George Martin is of course best known for his close involvement with those Beatles that everyone likes so much, but the man is too much of a maestro to be limited to just that reputation. This new recording by the Berlin Music Ensemble showcases a range of Martin’s work as a classical composer and arranger, from Live And Let Die to Under Milk Wood, via his own original suites. CD and double LP set on Atlas Realisations.

Luke Howard
Sun, Cloud / Night, Cloud

Sun, Cloud has previously only been made available in Australia, but no more! Now UK listeners can also enjoy Luke Howard’s music. Piano is central to these compositions, spinning delicate neo-classical melodies into the air, where strings, electronics and field recordings add texture to the mix. This CD release of Sun, Cloud also comes with Night, Cloud, an extra disc of remixes by various producers.

Max Richter
Disconnect (Music From The Motion Picture)

More excellent compositional score-work from Max Richter, this time to accompany the 2012 what-if-internet-but-too-much drama film Disconnect. As well as Richter’s punchy original compositions, this OST collection also includes Jayme Ivision’s song Ni Su Nave. CD released by the Milan label.

raven
the night is dark, the night is silent, the night is bright, the night is loud

New album from Peter Hollo’s (Fourplay, Tangents) solo project Raven. At it’s heart, is his cello, creating loops, drones and ambiences. Backed up with electronics, sampling and piano Hollo doesn’t so much force two worlds together but molds them to fit seamlessly. Neo classical meets breakbeats, noise and glitches. Think Squarepusher meets Arthur Russell.

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
Collaborative Works

Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm are each highly regarded as indie-classical melodic experimentalists, and with good cause. They’ve also been working together for years, and this Collaborative Works set gathers up all their past EPs, along with Trance Frendz, a new set of studio improvisations. Double CD on Erased Tapes.

Penguin Cafe
The Red Book

Arthur Jeffe’s continuation of his father Simon’s legacy as Penguin Café is impressive. The contents of The Red Book are glittering, complex instrumentals, oft led by piano and strings but featuring quite a list of instruments. Lying somewhere between modern classical minimalism and pop, these compositions aren’t too far from post-rock. Fortunately, the tedious, po-faced overstatement common in post-rock is largely absent here.

William Eggleston
Musik

William Eggleston, now 77, is a regarded photographer, but here is another side to the Memphis man. Eggleston rediscovered a piano in his childhood home, igniting a passion. An '80s fascination with a Korg synth developed; a sequencer enabled him to make and improvise symphonies and Bach-ian organ cantatas. He produced 49 floppy discs  -- 60 hours of music -- from which 13 tracks were culled, hence the making of Musik. LP / CD on Secretly Canadian.

Angele David-Guillou
En Mouvement

Angele David-Guillou is a French composer who has previously worked under the name Klima and as part of Piano Magic. This is her second album under her birth name and is an album of modern composition that references the music of Moondog and Philip Glass taking this listener on a creative musical journey. 

Max Richter
Nose Dive - Black Mirror

Funny that Charlie Brooker, who started out writing stunningly rude parody TV listings, is now in a position to be commissioning Max Richter to provide soundtracks for his big budget TV series. Well he is, and here is said Richter’s dark cinematic accompaniment to the Nosedive episode of Black Mirror. Presented by Deutsche Grammophon.

Snow Palms
Origin and Echo

Snow Palms is a project of David Sheppard (he also wrote an acclaimed Brian Eno biography) that focuses on the rich power of mallet instruments, exploiting the fabulous combination of melodicism and percussion that these instruments (think marimbas and metallophones) can provide. Origin And Echo is full of excellent intuitive compositions, and is released by Village Green.

Max Richter
Henry May Long

Max Richter’s score to Randy Sharp’s 19th century drama Henry May Long (2008). Richter’s softly dramatic compositions match a tale of self-discovery and self-destruction. Originally only released digitally through Mute, Deutsche Grammophon have brought it into the physical realm on CD and LP.

Jherek Bischoff
Scores

Scores is an instrumental version of Jherek Bischoff’s 2012 album Composed. While that record featured a bunch of guests providing vocals, Scores takes it back to just the music, revealing these busy little pieces in their full exquisite detail! Featuring what sounds like a decent-sized string ensemble as well as intimate parts. CD release on The Leaf Label.

Willie Gibson
Vivaldi: Seasons Change

Willie Gibson is an electronic music composer working in the wilds of Cambridgeshire. He spent a year recreating one of the most popular pieces of classical music - Vivaldi's Le Quattro Stagioni - using a modular synthesizer. Gibson transcribed each element of the score into MIDI, built each instrument sound from scratch and recorded the parts track by track as audio, re-patching the modular synth each time. Literally an unrepeatable process.In the spirit of earlier vintage/futuristic adaptations of classical music (e.g. Wendy Carlos) but also via Kraftwerk, modern chiptune and even the same robot seed that produced The Who's Baba O'Reilly, Gibson has given the mathematical beauty of these pieces a bright new makeover.

From the Mouth of the Sun
Hymn Binding

Aaron Martin (Black Vines, The Cloisters) and Dag Rosenqvist (Jasper TX) have individually had releases on Miasmah, Type and Denovali. Joining forces as From The Mouth Of The Sun they work entirely with acoustic sound sources, from guitars to organs and cellos. Swelling neo-classical pieces to soothe the soul.

Joep Beving composes and performs pieces for piano with a delicacy and a sense of stateliness that puts him right in there with the likes of Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds. Solipsism, his debut, was recorded in the middle of the night for extra depth of feeling: this is neo-classical piano of the most relaxing sort. Originally released on On I Are Giant and now reissued by Deutsche Grammophon.

Siavash Amini
TAR

Containing an ocean-sized depth of emotion and meaning, TAR is Tehran-based producer Siavash Amini's 2017 brainchild. Comprised of four offerings, including the mammoth twelve-minutes-plus tracks 'A Dream's Frozen Reflection' and 'The Dust We Breathe', this is a sophisticated take on modern drone and classical genres.
