Alex Tiuniaev is a piano and cinematic music composer from Moscow, Russia. Alex has been making music since 2005 when he released his debut album Artificial Symphony on OtterSong Records in the US. The album was a mixture of ambient pop, orchestral colours, and electronica.

In 2008 Alex released I Knew Her, his most popular album to date, on Cold Spring Records in the UK. It contained a single 40-minute neo-classical piece and was heavily influenced by American minimalist composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich.

In 2010s Alex switched to a clearer, more intimate sound of the piano. In 2012 he released Blurred on Heat Death Records and a series of EPs for numerous netlabels, including the popular Earth Mantra and Audio Gourmet labels.

In 2017 Alex decided to self-release all future works through BandCamp. Currently two albums and two singles are available, all of them belonging within the intimate genre of chamber neoclassical music with ambient undertones. His major influences include film music composers, such as Howard Shore, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, and Hans Zimmer, as well as ambient and electronic artists such as Harold Budd, Brian Eno, Cliff Martinez, Aphex Twin, and Sigur Ros. 

This is a collection of solo piano pieces inspired by the nighttime ambience and the starless skies of his hometown. Also, by Blade Runner and Erik Satie.

New Album "Nina" by Jonathan Lear

2018-09-11 04:30:37 UTC

Img 0687

Jonathan Lear released his first short experimental/acoustic/ambient album “Outside Worlds” in December of 2011. Following the reception of some really high and unexpected praise, he began work on a full length album which took approximately two years and two inter-continental trips to write and record. After carrying out a successful crowdfunding campaign via Kickstarter to press the record on vinyl, he released “Memory Well” in March of 2014.

Since Memory Well Jonathan has put out two more one-man-band, instrumental math rock-esque records: “Reflection” (August 2016) and “Nina” (August 2018). While Reflection was very much a sequel to Memory Well, Nina is much more of a tribute to his ex-landlord’s dog Nina. Both albums are available in both digital and physical formats. 

"Nina" is an instrumental math rock journey. Although the few lyrics on the album give away very little, conceptually speaking, the record is in fact Jonathan's attempt to keep up with his landlord's dog: an utterly gigantic, supremely energetic, deaf pit bull / Dalmatian mix named Nina, who he is tasked with walking, feeding, and occasionally babysitting. Long story short, Jonathan peers into Nina's soul and realizes that there is a fully-formed human being inside, and this record is his attempt to capture that humanity in musical form. In doing so, Jonathan realizes that is actually dogs that make us human.

Track List

  • Beef Bucket - 00:54 
  • Horse Dog - 01:38 
  • Tobaccula - 03:14

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
