Murcof
Lost In Time

Fernando Corona is Murcof, a Mexican electronica artist who has gradually scaled back the beats in favour of samples and inspiration taken from modern classical music. Lost In Time intersects with the film of the same name, and uses aspects of the Goldberg Variations in order to create a deep and powerful new work. Released by Glacial Movements.

Tropic of Coldness
Framed Waves

Italian-American duo Tropic Of Coldness release their latest drone opus via Glacial Movements (bvdub & Loscil, Scanner). It’s a fittingly-named label for an album such as Framed Waves. This is a work of slow beauty built on sonic micro-shifts rather than abrupt changes. Hums, whirrs and groans drift over one another across these five lengthy entries, with the occasional spool of electric guitar added for extra poignancy.

Paul Schütze
The Sky Torn Apart

Polymath Paul Schütze, he of Laughing Hands and Phantom City fame, explores the uncanny parallels between our modern-day environmental transformations and the Nordic myth of Ragnarök, in which the earth is subsumed by water as a consequence of conflicted divinity, in suitably experimental form.

Havenaire
Rabot

John Roger Olsson is perhaps better known for the guitar-based music of The Grand Opening. This is the second album from his ambient electronic alter ego, the first having come out on Constellation Tatsu last year. The cover depicts a glacier in northern Sweden, and the music is similarly icy and glacial, yet melodic. For fans of Ben Frost, William Basinski, Tim Hecker.

Scanner
The Great Crater

Rob Rimbaud’s Scanner project has been a multi-faceted and adventurous one. With releases on Sub Rosa, Sou Static and countless others as well as ventures into installations his ever widening circle stretches from abstract, minimal ambience, to acid and break beats. The Great Crater is composed on melting ice sheets, mixing desolate landscapes, awesome beauty and a large, unrealised terror.

Eraldo Bernocchi & Netherworld
Himuro

Italian producer Eraldo Bernocchi has a long and varied list of collaborations under his belt, including Mick Harris of Napalm Death fame, Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins, and Thomas Fehlmann of The Orb. This time round he has linked up with head of Glacial Movements Netherworld to produce Himuro, an exploration into icy ambient electronica.

bvdub
Epilogues for the End of the Sky

Brock Van Wey is a man with many outputs. Earth House Hold for deep house, East Of Oceans for drum and bass and his constantly expanding bvdub ambient project which digs as deep into the emotion of electronic music as you can. After swathes of releases on n5MD, AY, Darla, Echospace, and Kompakt he went self-released for ages and now returns in grand style to Glacial Movements. What a stunner.

AWARE
The Book of Wind

AWARE is the project of Alexander Gluck, whose advanced understanding of both philosophy and physics informs his musical work. The Book Of Wind is a suite of short-form ambient pieces that bristle with textural detail and melodic material. Thoughtful, magical stuff. CD release on the Glacial Movements label.

Johannes Malfatti
Surge

Johannes Malfatti is a busy Berlin sound designer who has lent his compositional and performance skills to all manner of different musics over the years. But this is his first solo release. Surge is a deep, slow-growing stretch of ambience that was inspired by the geology of the Austrian Alps. Texture and motion are key to this release. CD on Glacial Movements

Council Estate Electronics
Arktika

Diarmuid Dalton and heavy music all-rounder Justin K Broadrick join together to pay tribute to the place they both grew up and the synth music they listened to while doing so. Council Estate Electronics is a bit less noisy than, say, Godflesh, instead sending out spiralling signals of komische and dub. Project debut Arktika is released by Glacial Movements.

Aria Rostami & Daniel Blomquist
Wandering Eye

The San Francisco pairing of Aria Rostami and Daniel Blomquist share their debut duo album with the world. Wandering Eye is sourced from lots of real-world and internet-acquired samples, looped and digitally treated into lengthy, slowly-developing ambient drifts. Crackly textures and melodic haze. CD release on Glacial Movements.

Philippe Petit
You Only Live Ice

'You Only Live Ice' by self proclaimed 'musical travel agent' Philippe Petit is an atmospheric journey into a brooding, dream like soundscape, frozen in time and ice-cold space. The compositions are like the soundtrack to an invisible movie composed by a transcendental dreamer and it's easy to see the influence of the artists' peers and often times collaborators such as Lydia Lunch, Murcof, The European Contemporary Orchestra (E.C.O.), Mark Cunningham (MARS), Cindytalk, Orkest De Ereprijs and Audrey Chen to name but a few.

Rapoon
Song from the End of the World

Rapoon is Robin Storey, previously known for his work with the legendary group he co-founded, Zoviet France. As a solo artist, he is particularly keen on exploring the notion of the globe’s doom: hence Song from the End of the World. This suite of dark ambience is a meditation on an ancient virus, and carries that vibe pretty effectively. On Glacial Movements.

Chihei Hatakeyama & Dirk Serries
The Storm of Silence

The Storm Of Silence is a new collaboration between ambient dreamers from Belgium and Japan. Dirk Serries has previously released as vidnaObmana and Chihei Hatakeyama is half of the duo Opitope. Like the ambient pro’s they are, the pair settle straight into some mind-enveloping tone drift. CD released on the perfectly-named Glacial Movements label.

Netherworld
Zastrugi

There is ample reason Zastrugi is released on Glacial Movement Records. Sounding like an industrially produced blizzard, this is best called glacial techno. Filled with white noise, icy beats and cold synthesizer accompaniments, Netherworld’s LP is highly reminiscent of the arctic substations where we used to spend our childhood winters.

Machinefabriek
Stillness Soundtracks

This is a cd release on Glacial Pace collecting scores from a series of short films by Esther Kokmiejer. A natural fit for Machinefabriek and his evocative neo-classical soundscapes, the pieces act as a form of “abstract storytelling” for the footage. They stand alone as rich and moving pieces in their own right. Originally released on a limited run of usb sticks, this version includes two exclusive tracks.
