Marsen Jules
Shadows in Time (Static Version)

Marsen Jules composed Shadows In Time in the sense that he created its structure and set its parameters, but this is in fact a generative sound-work: it kind of created itself after Jules set it up and allowed it to run. This is just one possible permutation of a constantly evolving ambient sprawl, henc...view item »

Denzel + Huhn
Brom

Denzel + Huhn carefully create exciting digital soundfields for the pleasure of the listener. Brom is their first record in eight years, and the thought that has gone into it’s 14 tracks in that time is audible. These pieces crackle, skip and hum with a remarkably melodic sensibility.

Lost In The Humming Air (Music Inspired By Harold Budd)

The excellent free music newspaper Stool Pigeon has a section in each issue where they pick up on writers who use the words 'achingly beautiful' in reviews. I'm afraid that it would be impossible to review this wonderful tribute to Harold Budd without using that phrase so instead I'm just...view item »
