Found sound recordings of water, birds along with harmonious synths and strings from Barcelona-based musician, producer and wanderer Heine Christensen under his Ghost and Tape moniker. Layers upon layers of sound build up to create the feeling of a beautiful day. You can almost smell the hot earth and the cool stream. Four track EP on CD.

Hibernate have kindly provided some morning spook music in the form the next postcard from Catalonian soundscaper Ghost and Tape, and they’re some of the nicest ghouls you’ll meet. So nice in fact that you probably wouldn’t want to send this postcard anywhere but your secret listening den.
Apparently a self-taught guitarist and producer, man-behind-the-mask Heine Christensen fuses starry ambience with field recordings and careful acoustic plucks to form a music that has all the warmth of a sunlit morning contrasted by frosty hiss and sporadic clacking. The field from which he recorded can’t have been anything like a field, as it sounds like rocks falling onto a microphone. I guess if you’re based in Barcelona surrounding mountains are plentiful, perfect for a mic picnic. Picmic? Nah.
Superimposed pedal chords form the bedrock for gentle but irregular bristles of melody and miscellaneous artefacts of these picmics bringing an abstract edge that’ll appeal to fans of Ian William Craig’s recent output as well as his obsession with tape. Each track displays subtle variation around this main idea, possibly too subtle at times - there are only so many times you can wake up to frosty sunlight before the chills set in. But if it’s beauty you’re after then a beautiful 22 minutes it is guaranteed to be. Ghosts not included.
