Den by Line Gate

2017-03-19 05:24:47 UTC

New

Line Gate was formed in Michalovce, Eastern Slovakia in 2010. Since then some personal changes were made and now a solo incarnation is residing in Prague. After two years of solitary bedroom experimentation and almost four years after the debut “Split Lines”, Line Gate is coming with a new album, Den.

Mappa presents Den, a simple concept with a clear vision. A deep dive into endless repetition without any disturbing intervention, with only soft modulation of a hurdy-gurdy drone resonance. Den reveals minimal shifts in repetition and the possibilities of perception without the horizon of time.

At forty minutes long, the basis of the recording remains constant. What differs, is the listener's awareness and the wakefulness of the performer himself. Tension retreats to sensibility, release, and an opportunity to totally merge with the instrument and the physicality of sound fulfilling the room. Den is a burrow where inattention dissolves into calm perception of fluid measureless soundscape.

...in ocean where Poseidon, Eliane Radigue, Phill Niblock, Charybdis, La Monte Young, Moby Dick, … are throning

Den - 42:46


Genre : experimental, drone, electroacoustic, experiemental, minimal, minimalism

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

2016-10-06 00:00:00 UTC

Patcus

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” is Patkus’ third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015’s “Colors.” Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” mirrors Patkus’ journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.

  • Tamam Shud - 04:39 
  • The Doorbell Requiem of Catherine Philomena - 04:23 
  • Three Epicycles (or How a Poem on a Flagpole Told Me She Was Stars) - 09:23

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
