- Flare by Erik K Skodvin
9/10 Ant Staff review, 11 February 2011
My goodness! Followers of the Sonic Pieces label are in for a real treat with this, its ninth release, coming at you from Mister Erik K Skodvin and 'Flare' is an absolute beauty. Erik has kept himself busy over the years recording with Deaf Center, Miasmah Quartet, Norwegian Noise Orchestra; under the aliases Xhale, Solitare Albread and most recently as Svarte Greiner. In terms of the labels usual aesthetic this is a step in a slightly darker direction. Opener 'Etching An Entrance' sets the scene with black modern classical sounds and slightly doomy undercurrents all within a luxurious widescreen vista. 'Failing Eyes is a stripped bare to the bones acoustic guitar track that has an intriguing loner feel while 'Neither Dust' has an almost seedy vibe to it, whilst maintaining creepy momentum. Each track feels like a step into the unknown and you're never quite sure what will lurk behind the next shadowy corner. Erik's musicianship is of the highest calibre; whether he's playing strings or unsettling electronics. The packaging is a super high quality in-house embossed book sleeve with elegant gold print. I think this is quite probably my personal favourite release on Sonic pieces and so comes highly recommended. Second edition of 450 copies.
