Ambient bliss from Mirko Vogel, his debut full length, following a live CDr and digital EP for Room40. Apparently created as an antidote to the monotony of life on the road while he toured with Aussie electro-poppers Cut Copy, with whom he worked as sound engineer and collaborator.
‘LP1’ takes moments in time and suspends them --something akin to the current mannequin video fad that’s sweeping the internet. Where a single moment is paused and all its intimate details are revealed. The effect is quite magical, like experiencing life in slow motion.
Mirko’s ambient music is intricately layered and deeply textured; full of nuance and quite useful for becoming one with your armchair. Although there’s a very hazy, blurry aesthetic, ‘LP1’ is constructed from a far more colourful palette than the average monochrome ambient affair. Some very beautiful, evocative moments can be found within this album - it’s like opening a heavy curtain in a darkened room and beams of sunlight flooding in - illuminating all the dust particles that hover in the air.
