Endless Melancholy. Not (necessarily) a description of life in the Norman office, but the alias of Ukraine's Oleksiy Sakevych. His latest collection of achingly sad ambience is on its way via Dronarivm, titled 'Fragments of Scattered Whispers'; wherein gentle, feathery piano melodies melt into crystalline ambient textures. With tape explorations. Sounds nice. Nice and hazy.
CD on Dronarivm. Edition of 150 copies.

- Fragments of Scattered Whispers by Endless Melancholy
Oh look -- new Endless Melancholy. Oleksiy Sakevych’s latest CD arrives via Dronarivm -- ‘Fragments of Scattered Whispers’ comes in beautiful, tasteful packaging with blurry artwork echoing the hazy ambience and rain-spattered window feels in the elegant music lurking within the enclosed disc’s encoded (and decoded) digits.
Fluffy atmospherics (‘Prologue..’) lead the listener into a journey (possibly a Trans-Pennine chuff chuff calling at Witherinshaw, Brokenstone, Crapplethwaite, Parkinthorpe, Peestainsbeck and Spewsbury-in-the-Dale) through foggy valleys and, er, slightly less misty clearings. There are sad bits and really sad bits, as Oleksiy’s array of twinkling electro-acousticals (and wobbly pianos) play out through dimly flickering loops amidst heavily aching synth-strings. It’s actually quite lovely and reaches its apotheosis of wistful sadness on the highly evocative (and evocatively-titled) ‘In Transition From Anxiety To Acceptance’. Amen to that.
Music for gazing mournfully through the November drizzle-showers to. Bittersweetly. If listening at tea-time, might I suggest adding just a teaspoon of sugar. I’m off now, so I can finish crying into the tepid remnants of my Yorkshire tea. Thanks for listening.
