Francis M. Gri
Decays

From the music to the packaging, Decays by Francis M. Gri reflects decay in a number of ways. The music goes in cycles, building and falling, growing and decaying - beautiful sounds smothering less beautiful sounds and vice versa. The packaging shows moral decay in one version being way OTT, whilst another version is packaged to show physical decay. Only 50 copies of each on Time Released Sound.

Enofa
Arboretum

Debut album from Ross Baker’s new alias Enofa. Arboretum is an album deeply immersed in nature: walks in the parks and the forest have made their way into this music in the form of field recordings, but also a certain mood: not straightforwardly ‘pretty’ so much as mystic and peaceful. Presented with typical aplomb by Time Released Sound.

Julien Boulier
A Film Not Yet Made

French pianist and composer Julien Boulier offers a suite of trickling ivories laced with delicate strings and electronics for lovingly, dementedly DIY-packaged label Time Released Sound. A Film Not Yet Made indeed glistens with unmistakably cinematic meanings; tense, rise & fall short-range arpeggios, slow, deliberate and cautious movements, independent-but-harmonious strings communicating layers of shared emotion for dramatic effect - all that cinematic piano stuff is there. Good job, Julien!

Julien Boulier
A Film Not Yet Made

Julien Boulier’s new album is a fittingly-titled piece of highly-cinematic romantic grandiose miniatures: captivating stuff. A Film Not Yet Made is available in regular CD and LP editions, as well as a box set version that Time Released Sound themselves describe as ‘over-the-top’... red vinyl in a vintage box, with vintage 1860’s magazine cuttings, vintage french architectural plans, dried lavender, and a handwritten score. Well.

Kira Kira
Alchemy & Friends

Icelandic ‘audio/visual prankster’ Kira Kira presents a lavish release on Time Released Sound (Porya Hatami, Ghostwriter). It’s the usual Reykjavik sort of thing from Kira Kira here, though Alchemy & Friends does stand out from the Olafur Arnalds/Sigur Ros crowd for its patience and attention to detail. These are detailed experimental ambiences that draw from electroacousticism, drone, chamber music and more. Very nice indeed. The handmade packaging is lovely too.

Fallen
ást

Time Released Sound present some lovely editions of the latest album by Italian ambient musician Fallen (you may also know them by the name The Child Of A Creek). ast is a record full of pretty drones, found sounds, loops and touches of piano with just a hint of unease lurking at its corners. Oddly enough it invokes both the early tape stuff of The Caretaker and some of the weightless bits of Jam City’s Dream A Garden. The deluxe edition of the CD is a decadent piece involving Tarot cards, handmade artwork, vintage boxes and other trinkets.

Swoop And Cross
Stories Of Disintegration

Time Released Sound finally get round to releasing some vinyl. Their CDs looked nice enough so just imagine what they'll do with the bigger format. Their first release is by London based Portuguese composer Ruben Vale who has produced an album of soothing music with dreamy piano motifs and a cinematic air.

Giulio Aldinucci
Spazio Sacro

‘Spazio Sacro’ (“sacred space”) comprises of seven tracks that are characterized by field recordings taken in various sacred places as a study of how the artifacts and traditions of human spirituality and ritual such as processions or the architecture of religious buildings can influence the definition of specific soundscapes.

Leo Takami
The Tree Of Life

Time Released Sound rounds off a year of relatively tense, thick music with something much more stripped-down and relaxing from Leo Takami. The Tree of Life is a lengthy collection of highly understated, layered piano and electronic compositions. Mature and beautiful work, right at home on this label of preposterously lovingly-presented limited editions.

Francesco Maria Narcisi & Giacomo Fidanza
The Accordion Sessions

Giacomo Fidanza is a master at taking that most interesting of instruments, the accordion, into more experimental territory than usual. Here on The Accordion Sessions his rich droning playing is processed and mixed with field recordings by Francesco Maria Narcisi, leaving us with a gorgeous suite of sound. Limited edition of 100 CDs on Time Released Sound.

Francesco Maria Narcisi & Giacomo Fidanza
The Accordion Sessions

For their latest super-limited digipack cd, Time Released Sound offer us Francesco Maria Narcisi & Giacomo Fidanza, The Accordion Sessions. Fidanza gets on the lush accordion-drone tip as Francesco works and processes away, interpolating his field recordings and making a thick, potent soup of sounds. Unrelenting yet unwaveringly melodic. Redolent of naive times yet not quite fully yielding to nostalgia, the duo have made an ideal soundtrack for our overloaded lives.

Morgen Wurde
Assassinous Act

Wolfgang Röttger (Pyrococcus) returns to Time Released Sound as Morgen Wurde with a soundtrack to a fictitious murder and imagined film noir. Dark ambient movements that play out like Ulver’s Svidd Neger, with hints of Julianna Barwick and Richard Skelton’s *AR. A brood scandinavian murder mystery. Deluxe pack comes with a load of handmade and picked clues that enable you to solve the mystery.

Plinth
Collected Machine Music

Plinth makes music using old victorian music boxes, calliopes and all manner of wheezing things. Beautifully constructed and atmospheric, this re-issue contains all the tracks on the original Time Released Sound CD issue with new artwork in a reverse board sleeve. Limited to 250 that are completely exclusive to us! 

Kosmonaut
Master Generator

Orghanon
Retrospectre

Sergio Calzoni’s Orghanon project crafts beautiful and personal ambient worlds. Drones cast a shadow over stings and heavily effected piano motifs. Comes as a very limited CD or deluxe version with a framed picture, and a mysterious antique 78RPM 5”. Play this at the wrong speed and you fall into a blurred history. If you’re a fan of Otto A. Totland, Deaf Center, and Leyland Kirby you should jump on this.

Masaya Kato
Trace Of Voices

Masaya Kato's music is gently tethered by barely played piano notes, found sounds and rural ambient fluttering. Trace Of Voices comes together sounding the way minimal music should, each instrument filling a different corner of the room that respects the composition as a whole, while feeling only just a part of it. Like Grouper's Ruins, it's a record in which you hear both the physical setting and the music at the same time.

Maurizio Abate & Matteo Uggeri
Beyond Time

Guitars, field recordings and electronic fragments are brought together by Maurizio Abate and Matteo Uggeri for their latest release, a pleasing melodic sound-drift. Beyond Time is available either as a straightforward digipack CD edition, or as a super-fancy elaborate CD edition housed in a vintage wallpaper sleeve with old photographs, old book pages and dried leaves as part of the ensemble. My my.

Jessica Curry
Fields Were the Essence of the Song

Exciting rumblings in the Time Released Sound world: their latest release comes from none other than Jessica Curry, a unique neo-classical voice who gave the post-apocalyptic pastures of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture their shine. Since working on the music and actual development of that game, she has been writing for imaginary film, offering these overtures and descriptions for things that aren't in front of her. The themes and settings that Fields Were the Essence of Song conjure are in collaboration with the listener and their response to the work. The tunes on here meld melodic songwriting, piano excursions and an overarching poetry reading. As always, lovely over the top packaging from the folks at TRS.

So Beast
Kira

So Beast is a Croatian-Italian duo working primarily with the interesting combination of prepared piano and processed guitar, with occasional look-ins for drum machines and other such bits and pieces. Kira is full of manic-sounding songs, often with actual vocals! You get good value for money too, as Kira is a full seventy-eight minutes long. Edition of 150 CDs on the Time Released Sound label.

Porya Hatami & Arovane
Kaziwa

Strange, delicate experimental songcraft from Porya Hatami and Arovane. Kaziwa features lots of stately piano, creeping around in an uncanny atmosphere of electronics. Everything feels an intimate ritual, observed from a distance. Kaziwa is available in a regular Digipak CD edition or a fancy limited ‘art edition’ of only 75 copies which comes in the form of a set of five, corner hinged 6.5” square sheets of black fine art paper which have have been meticulously pastel buffed, punched, stamped, collaged, laser cut/burnt, and come with an attached vintage clock hand. Each set is backed with a used, antique shooting range target, and comes in a square, similarly modified translucent sleeve.

Sonmi451
The Limbic System

This is a very special release from Sonmi451 aka Bernard Zwijzen. ‘The Limbic System’ is calmly pouring instantly uplifting and beautiful sounds all over you and its running down your back like warm syrup. As if that’s not enough, the packaging is a medical inspired masterpiece of concept art with endless attention to detail.

Morgen Wurde
Brach Auf

Morgen Wurde would like to invite you to drift through empty fields with abandoned farms, huge barns casting long shadows on overgrown fields. Their new release Brach Auf is filled with haunting ambient pads interlaced with vocals so dreamy that you’re not even sure they're real. And the packaging is equally beautiful.

Nhung Nguyen and Cinchel
Movement Of An Old Soul

Nhung Nguyen and Cinchel poured guitar drones, treated piano and old music box twinklings into Movement Of An Old Soul, resulting in luscious atmospheres. Available as a regular digipak CD, or as an elaborate construction of antique board, photo collage, player piano roll paper, vintage envelopes and old metal music box discs: christ! On Time Released Sound.

Mark Lyken and Emma Dove
Mirror Lands

Mirror Lands is an audio-visual project by Mark Lyken and Emma Dove. Deeply concerned with people and place, the audio presented here is an ambient tide of piano, field recordings, and subtle electronics.

Olga Wojciechowska
Maps And Mazes

Maps And Mazes collects 11 luscious-sounding modern classical works by Olga Wojciechowska. The deluxe edition of this album is something to behold, lovingly wrapping the CD with a hand-sewn booklet of maps and mazes (see what they did there?), then contained within an old educational chart. My my. 65 copies of the bespoke edition, on Time Released Sound.

Marta Mist
Scavengers

Marta Mist are an experimental ambient trio from leeds, creating expansive live ambient works. With previous releases on Heat Death and Hibernate records, they always make the releases interesting and tactile, with self-released Tonnes/Years released on reclaimed USB sticks. The deluxe version of Scavengers comes housed in an oil painted Hardy Boys hardback with a 75 year old map, and a collection of hardy boys goodies such as playing cards, badges and a whistle! A truly unique release.

The Star Pillow
Above

The Star Pillow is the long-form drone project of Italian Paolo Monti, and Time Released Sound have packaged his Above album in the most stunning way. The special edition is limited to only 55 because it is a handmade item; it comes in a vintage Kodak film case, with custom art and miniature space figures. The music within is a gorgeous ambient drone made from reverbed guitar chords and delicate textures.

Vektormusik
Time Woke Up In Darkness excerpts Vol 2

Vektormusik are a Danish duo who recently composed some soundtrack pieces for a theatre production.

Gypsy Eyes
Nefelibata

Gypsy Eyes produces slightly tense semi-ambient music, his full-length album Nefelibata creeping through an audio landscape that feels very real. Much of the sound here is sourced electronically, but there are crackles and rustles that hint at physical presence. Edition of 100 digipack CD copies, on Time Released Sound.

The Doubling Riders
Garama

The Doubling Riders originally released Garama in 1991. The album is a strange beast: for the most part it is more or less ambient music, composed out of quiet, leisurely synths and some distant vocal samples. The inspiration is apparently the ancient kingdom from which the record takes its name. Reissued by Time Released Sound.

Drawing Virtual Gardens
Six Weeks Were Too Long To Wait

Six Weeks Were Too Long To Wait is the debut album from American, David Gutman, released under the wonderfully named, Drawing Virtual Gardens. The album was recorded while waiting for his wife to give birth and the subsequent weeks his baby was kept at the hospital. It is tense, sprawling ambiance which sways toward industrial music but is always vulnerable and ultimately delicate. Available as a deluxe version limited to 70 copies with loads of extra goodies or the standard version of 150 copies.

Pines
The Field Journal

Zachary Corsa aka Pines releases an 8 track EP on deluxe 3” CD on Time Released Sounds.

Comes with hand coloured fold out print.

Ghostwriter & Michael Paine
Morrow

Mark Brend, better known under his spooky alias of Ghostwriter, is joined by collaborator Michael Paine on a collection of compositions that evoke empty English houses where people once used to live but have since evacuated; sentimental piano is at the fore, along with flourishes of guitar, xylophone, abstract percussion, found sounds and other loose ends. Morrow is a chilling and melancholy work of art.

Francesco Giannico
Metrophony

A calming broth of ambience being fed to you by Francesco Giannico. If you haven't guessed, he's Italian and the compositions on Metrophony are based on urban field recordings of the Italian metro. He's added other instruments and post-production bits to give each piece a luscious harmonic substance. It's very swirly, floaty and soft. The CD comes with a load of 'vintage' stuff stuck to it so it looks well old. Out from Time Released Sound.

Porya Hatami
Arrivals And Departures

Porya Hatami is an Iranian artist who finds, takes and manipulates sounds, integrating both organic noise and self-made electronic works into one palette. The result is a wavering ambient sound that washes over, while small flourishes of nature appear to actualise the landscape. 'Arrivals and Departures' is both still and constantly moving, for fans of Stars of the Lid who want just a tiny bit of life's urgency to seep into their Sunday ambient. 

Middlemarch
Wolf Hall

Middlemarch is a collaboration between pianist Dimitris Avramidis and ambient soundscaping fellow Ross Baker. Like Grouper melting her guitar into atmospherics, or the grandiose gestures thrown off in the middle of A Winged Victory For The Sullen's ambient passages, 'Wolf Hall' offers a droning representation of a traditional composition. Avramidis piano work is in the forefront of 'Wolf Hall', with the sustained electronic work of Baker filling the backdrop with dreamy, enveloping layers. 'Wolf Hall' is one of those ambient records that takes you to a specific place and time; it's like listening to piano in a distant room, fifty years ago.
