tsone
pagan oceans II

Pagan Oceans II is the second part of a trilogy by Tsone AKA Tony Obr. The ambient project was a big deal for Home Normal boss Ian Hagwood, who also mastered the album, as the tapes came to him at a time when he was going through some bad stuff. He found that this was the soundtrack he needed. CD on Home Normal.

Sontag Shogun & Moskitoo
The Things We Let Fall Apart / The Thunderswan

Breathy-voiced Moskitoo (Sanae Yamasaki) joins forces with Sontag Shogun (Ian Temple, Jesse Perlstein and Jeremy Young) to produce a pair of gentle electroacoustic ambient numbers for Home Normal. Field recordings, piano, Moskitoo’s voice and various electronics are all more or less processed into an elegantly-woven texture of easy listening. ‘The Things We Let Fall Apart’ and ‘Thunderswan’ were mastered by Lawrence English.

James Murray
Falling Backwards

James Murray follows last year's celebrated 'Killing Ghosts' with a new full-length album on Home Normal. Falling Backwards promises more of Murray's trademark hushed, creeping and haunting ambience but with an increased sense of intimacy this time. The record relates his personal childhood memories and speaks to catharsis through release. There's a definite emphasis on optimism here amongst the splintered yet linear melodies. A narrative of a naturally lit journey, made in plain sight.

ISAN + Paco Sala + R Elizabeth + A New Line (Related)
Rough Imaginary

The date 15th April should be etched on your mind because that's the day these artists killed it at London Fields Brewery. Beforehand the artists got together to create this CD of their work. They must have brought all the stuff seperately as there's no way they could have created this over pre-gig nibbles. It's a lovely collection though from A New Line (Related)'s gorgeous mellow techno to ISAN's classic bleepery. You need this.

Ian Hawgood
Love Retained

Incredibly bare piano pieces, presented with thanks, love and admiration for those around him. Battling with depression for decades Ian Hawgood found a release, but also a trigger in composing, these unfinished and unmastered piano sketches serve up as a mirror to that fragility, and mark his departure from his own label (Home Normal) and possibly music itself.

M. Ostermeier
Tiny Birds

On Tiny Birds, M. Ostermeier focuses on the gradual development of sparse and minimal piano melodies and then intertwines them with beautiful field recordings and delicate violin. Home Normal have unearthed another gem with this patient album of neoclassical drone and gorgeous ambient chamber music.

Altars Altars
Small Hours

Sounding like The Gentleman Losers recording the skit tracks for Boards of Canada or Helios, Altars Altars is gentle, filled with tape warbles (because he put everything through a reel to reel), delicate plucked guitar, and awash with field samples and children playing. It’s dreamlike state, lying in a field in your youth ambient music. Loverly.

Tobias Hellkvist
Kaskelot: Reissue + Remixes

Tobias Hellkvist has been composing richly-textured electroacoustic suites for some years now.

Edition of 500 CDs on the Home Normal label.

Silent Vigils
Fieldem

Thoughtful, patient and gentle ambient music from Silent Vigils. Fieldem is the first collaborative release of many from Stijn Hüwels on Home Normal, this time with James Murray. Together they craft a soundscape for reflection and remembrance, for hope and for forgiveness.

Fabio Orsi
Just For A Thrill

Some slow cleaners from Fabio Orsi. Just For A Thrill is the new full length offering from the Italian producer. On this one he melds expansive electronics and synths with field recordings to blur the lines between organic and artificial to the point where you're not sure which is which. Definitely one for the Eno heads. Out on CD from Home Normal.

Elian
Harrowgate

Some shadowy sounds from Elian. Harrowgate is the new five tracker from American producer Michael Duane Ferrell. Hes delving into the sonic pallet, blending white-noisey fuzz with tripped out synths and ominous atmospherics. Going deep into the ocean or far out into space, he's looking for something in the darkness. Out on CD from Home Normal.

Stefano Guzzetti
Short Stories. Piano Book Volume Two.

Stefano Guzzetti follows on from where he left off with Volume One of his Piano Book series, a set of simply stated solo piano pieces, recorded in the intimate inner space of home. These so-called ‘short stories’ do indeed feel like sparsely sketched-out little narratives, ready to probe late night thought, or just induce a calmer state. CD release from Home Normal.

Ian Hawgood + Danny Norbury
Faintly Recollected

Home Normal - restful music on an anything-but-restful release schedule. This time it’s HN boss Ian Hawgood himself exchanging notes with Danny Norbury (The Boats). The result is one gapless piece cued into seven untitled movements. Wistful layers of cello, serene and cinematic passage through ambient vignettes… you know the drill.

Ian Hawgood + Giulio Aldinucci
Consequence Shadows

More somnolent, slow-burning electroacoustic ambience courtesy of Ian “Home Normal” Hawgood and rippling fieldrec soundscapist Guilio Aldinucci. There are sometimes more layers to these arrangements than first meet the ear, as it seems great care has gone into ensuring all elements blend into undifferentiated calm as easily as possible. On duty for the last twenty minutes, Stijn Hüwels contributes a remix in exactly the same style.

Ghost and Tape
Vár

Ghost and Tape is the ambient music project of Heine Christensen. Var is his fourth album. It is warm and organic soundscapes made up from electric and acoustic instruments mixed with field recordings. Following a stint on the Schole label, Var is released on Home Normal. This should go down a treat with you lot.

Jason van Wyk
Opacity

Jason van Wyk is not just a musician, he is a sound artist. Opacity shows the South African's true brilliance and ability to use to his full advantage his talent at connecting what happens in his head to the music that comes through his instruments. This record is available on CD and is released on Home Normal.

Jason van Wyk
Attachment

If you’re after pretty much perfect relaxation and harmony, look no further than Attachment by Jason van Wyk. The record could send you to sleep, or into deep thought, or maybe even into deep space. A blend of electronic sounds, strings and piano compliment each other so well in this release. Available on CD on Home Normal.

Ian Hawgood + Wil Bolton
Transparencies

Eight years into their collaboration, Wil Bolton and Home Normal main-man Ian Hawgood have finished their first full-length album. Transparencies is a tender release full of intimate interplay of instruments and sounds: Bolton and Hawgood are perfectly suited to one another, sharing a subtle melodic approach. Released on Home Normal in a limited edition of 500 CDs.

James Murray
Killing Ghosts

James Murray makes music that sometimes sounds like the ghosts of techno: tracks that might once have moved bodies on a dancefloor have been diffused and reduced so thoroughly that they now inhabit a wholly different space. Killing Ghosts is a suite of those ambient remnants. Released by Home Normal in an edition of 500.

Mere
Mere II

Mere is Gareth Davis’ free improvised jazz trio, bringing in guitar and drums to join the movements of his wildly-flailing bass clarinet. Mere II is the second part of a live recording, which has in turn been divided into three distinct sessions and carefully mastered to bring out every last detail in crisp clarity. CD on Home Normal, packaged with a photo negative. Edition of 500.

Mere
Mere III

Mere is Gareth Davis’ free improvised jazz trio, bringing in guitar and drums to join the movements of his wildly-flailing bass clarinet. Mere III is the third part of a lively and questing live recording, carefully mastered to bring out each detail in crisp clarity. The trilogy is now complete! CD on Home Normal, packaged with a photo negative in an edition of 500.

Melodia
Diario de viaje

The Home Normal label continue their run of broad but utterly distinctive releases with a limited edition, four panelled recycled card CD from Melodía. A travel journal of intimate and low key instrumentals for acoustic guitar and twinkling electronics, the affecting, meandering songs perfectly capture idyllic trips spent wandering and the simultaneously exciting and lonely feel of empty hotel rooms.

Christopher Hipgrave
No Greater Hero Than The Least Plant That Grows

Sublime ambient music from enigmatic UK composer Christopher Hipgrave. Initially causing a stir with his 2009 debut ‘Day’ Hipgrave has since released material on Low Point and developed acclaimed music-making software. His new album is characterised by its atmosphere of deep contemplation, delicate textural interplay and its ability to elongate a single moment of stillness into a blissful eternity.
