A masterpiece of electronic minimalism and ambient experimentalism by Bartosz Dziadosz aka Pleq and Philippe Lamy. Including remixes by Pjusk (Rune Sagevik & Jostein Gjelsvik), Marcus Fjellström and Ben Lukas Boysen.

Headphones or a large space highly recommended.

'Drowning in the Sky' is a collaboration album between Pjusk (Rune Sagevik & Jostein Gjelsvik) and Sleep Orchestra (Christopher Pegg). The music creates a soundtrack of ambient soundscapes and drones that move you slowly and steadily through an ever changing landscape of water, fog and the clouds in the sky.

'Cast Off' is the work of UK based sound artist Spheruleus and is the follow up to ‘Dissolve’ which was released in February 2012. ‘Dissolve’ was named one of Fluid Radio’s top releases that year in their end of year coverage and some two years later, Harry Towell (Spheruleus) has two more mid-longform pieces available as a digital release. Both pieces feel connected to Dissolve, partially down to duration and the way they evolve but also due to the over-riding sense of melancholy and a longing for isolation that prevails.

Best known as half of post-classical / electronica duo Piano Interrupted, London based French producer Franz Kirmann goes back to his electronic roots with ‘Meridians’, his second album, due out on Denovali Records next July.

Strongly influenced by movies (he used to be a film editor and filmmakers Wong Kar Wai, Michelangelo Antonioni, Sergio Leone or David Lynch are happily cited alongside his musical influences), Franz Kirmann has a weakness for walls of sounds and fragile melodies, which to him are the sonic equivalent of slow-motion sequences, travelling shots or landscapes in cinemascope.

The album title ‘Meridians’ comes from the Chinese medicine’s belief in the Meridian network, a path through which the life-energy flows. The album has a strong sense of an internal journey, the music being both an invitation to introversion and reverie but also suggesting an epic voyage. The meridians could be regarded as vessels carrying emotions, souvenirs, thoughts, travelling through the body and mind, provoking a voyage through one’s own life without the need for movement.

Breathtaking video about marine animals showing their secret life under high magnification.

Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

This little clip took 150.000 shots. Excellent ambient music taken from Atmostra III by Cedric Baravaglio, Jonathan M. Ochmann and Zdravko Djordjevic.

Greg Haines live at AV Picknick in Münster, Germany, in March.

Greg is doing something very similar like Nils Frahm these days, which is going all-synth after being conceived as being part of the neo-classical music evolution for years. Nils is getting far more attention, which seems a bit unfair to me. No doubt, Nils’ latest album ‘Spaces’ is a masterpiece, but so is Greg’s ‘Where We Are’. Anyway, it’s great to have such great talent in the music industry these days, in both.

Denovali Swingfest London 2014 starts in around three weeks. The label compiled a free download sampler for this year’s event.

15 tracks of the 11 artists performing at the festival. Their sets will as always be as long as a proper club show (around an hour).

Lovely ambient compilation by Harry Towell’s Tessellate Recordings featuring some of my favourite artists like The Green Kingdom, Michael Trommer and Olan Mill. Each track features a bonus image of the artists’ local surroundings as a sort of post card to the listener. Some are of local landscapes, others are personal places of interest to the respective artist.
