- Vanishing Mirror by Pill-Oh
9/10 Phil Staff review, 31 October 2012
I was a little confused by this one. It took me a while to work out it was by Pill Oh and not Vanishing Mirror (which is what it’s called). Doesn’t take me much to get confused though! Pill Oh comprises of Hior Chronik (electronics) and Zinovia Arvanitidi (piano) and ‘Vanishing Mirror’ is their debut release.
Like every release on the Kitchen label a lot of work has gone into the design. You get an A5 16 page page booklet with lots of ethereal pictures inside and a CD housed on one of those rubber nips. It’s all rather tasteful. As is the music which is largely piano based but there’s some fake strings courtesy of Chronik as well as some occasional electronic sounds which add an extra dimension and stop this from being another neoclassical album.It’s romantic and sentimental sounding and it definitely walks along the more sombre line of all things neoclassical. There’s some more playful tracks along the lines of Yann Tiersen like ‘Fields Of Yellow Leaves’ where the addition of the accordion adds a certain je ne sais quoi. There’s a nice mixture of stripped back neoclassical tracks and more adventurous ones with more electronics in. Comparisons to Dustin O Halloran, Nils Frahm, Max Richter are inevitable I’m afraid. Quality album!
