Nueve días de invierno es un disco de música minimalista espontánea para piano. A mediados de febrero tocaba que me afinaran el piano, y siempre que me lo afinan pienso que es una pena malgastar esos días en que se mantiene la afinación perfecta y no grabar algo. Como no tenía nuevo material para piano que grabar, se me ocurrió la idea de convocar a amigos y músicos de Madrid para reunirnos durante nueve días a tocar, creando música espontáneamente y grabandolo todo para editarlo después "Nine days of Winter" is an album of spontaneous, minimalist music for piano. By mid february my piano was to be tuned, and each time that happens I think that is a waste not using that days in which the piano keeps an almost-perfect tuning to record something. As I had no new stuff for piano, I decided to call my friends and fellow musicians from Madrid to meet during 9 days just to play, create spontaneous music and record everything, in order to publish the music later. Por desgracia al final ninguno de mis amigos pudo presentarse, así que decidí grabar de todas maneras yo solo. El proceso tuvo lugar los días 20 a 28 de febrero de 2010, días de frío, viento, lluvia y nieve en Madrid. Este album es el resultado de esos nueve días de invierno, un disco melancólico, intimista y minimalista. Los temas son todos improvisados conforme la música surgía, grabados directamente en primera toma. Espero que lo disfrutéis. Podéis descargarlo en la página anterior. La portada es obra de mi gran amigo y mejor fotógrafo Diego Sevilla. Unfortunately, none of my friends could join me for that nine days, so I decided to play and record them myself. The process took place between the 20th and 28th of February, days of cold weather, rain, wind and snow here in Madrid. This album is the result of that nine days of winter, a disc of melancholic, intimate, minimalist music. The songs are all improvised as they were recorded just while the music was being played, directly in first takes. Hope you'll enjoy it. You can download it in the previous page. The cover pic is the work of my good friend and best photographer Diego Sevilla.

Fabrizio Paterlini’s music has been defined as ambient, minimalist, graceful, sweet and relaxing: “a glass of red wine on a summer evening”, as he himself defines it. In 2009, he released "Remixed", a compilation including the best remixes on his music received from worldwide artists. In 2008, he released an EP - "Viandanze" a small preview of the entire full album that will be released as of Dec 13, 2009. In 2007, on the “Music Center” label, he released his debut CD, “Viaggi in Aeromobile” (Aircraft Trips): a delicate and elegant album that catapults the listener into the intimate world of the artist where he willingly allows himself to be transported by a sound of rare beauty. Born in Mantua, Fabrizio started playing the piano at the age of 6. After many years studying classical music, he started perfoming with a number of bands, playing everything from progressive to hard rock, from jazz to pop. It was not until the end of the 90s that he decided to explore new musical paths, concentrating on the piano, the instrument that best expresses his inner world.

aaw lovely discovery, kind of stuff I'm into these days, recommended both releases.

“Abondance de périls” is the new ep by Vision Éternel. As it’s third release, the band has moved to a newer sound, but still keeping the composition it is known for. This splendid short play will be your soundtrack to late lonely nights, and will make you feel just like the artist was when writing these pieces. As usual for the band, it is a concept album. It is the third instalment in the post-phases of love. For the first time VE has worked with external artists (in the mastering and the artwork of the album) and it adds an entire new dimension to this beautiful masterpiece.

Tracklist:
1 Thoughts as Solicitation 1:42

Beyond the Dune Sea’s debut full length is a brilliant album. And it was done in such a “post-musical” style as well. A series of live jams were recorded and the whole thing was put together in post-production style by Adam Kennedy. The entire album is flawless and could be your next album on repeat once you get started. This is not to be passed by in 2010.

Matt Brown crafts his pensive, lazy-day sound like no other. Easy and gorgeous, humble and encouraging, Disinterested grew out of the desire to make ambient music with only a guitar, exploring the usage of effects pedals and other experimentation during the recording process. Originally intended to be a solo project, Matt found it difficult to resist the desire to collaborate and has enjoyed working with many people on his two albums, including his bandmates from Seattle's Trespassers William, artists over the internet he’s never met (Ma-Chan, Klassen), classical singer Dino Palazzi, and, on his new record, renown guitarist Bill Frisell.

Artist: "…"
Album: Transcendence
Genre: ambient, postrock, modern classical
Year: 2010

Web: buy, myspace
Mirror~Bitrate~Size: mf | 224 | 48

It took the Brighton-based Swede Jakob Lindhagen, the man behind the mysterious moniker "…", only a month to single handedly write, produce and record the debut album "Transcendence". An achievement that becomes even more impressive considering the fact that Jakob had barely turned 20 doing it. In a true DIY spirit he's now releasing it, digitally, all on his own.
The album begins with the highly appropriate, if slightly cliche, sound of the needle hitting the record. Then it starts. The mind gets washed away by a numbing chord progression, and without fully realizing what's
going on enters a piercing melody that slowly crawls under your skin to stay. After that follows a flow of melancholic pianos, guitars; ranging from sweeping to delicately picking to aggressively attacking and everything in between along with sadly echoing glockenspiels, discrete electronic touches and astonishingly atmospheric sounds and creates deeply moving, instrumental perfection, one moment extraordinary grandiose and the other whisperingly intimate.
He creates his own little ethereal universe that he brings us to and lets us visit, if only for a while. It's a dreamy sentiment that describes something we do not fully understand.
Jakob shows with this debut a maturity rarely seen amongst newcomers, not just proving his talent but delivering
as well.

When the needle is eventually lifted and you wake up, the only thing that bothers is that it ended to quickly.

Honey Sacrifice - Nights In Columbus



Artist: Honey Sacrifice
Album: Nights In Columbus
Genre: downtempo, ambient, post-rock
Year: 2010
Label: Neo Ouija
Web: buy, last.fm, myspace
Mirror~Bitrate~Size: direct link | ~293 | 150

The Honey Sacrifice was developed as a soundtrack to a film which has not been realized as of yet.
The 15 tracks accredited to the album “Nights in Columbus” reveal the underlying tension between an
ever promising future and the stark reality of the present in a fictitious urban zone of Columbus Ohio.
The interplay of the songs represent the struggle, the desolation, hopes realized and forgotten; laid before

a solemn group of participants. The actors in the film, as varied as the musicians performing, find themselves
culled together by a postmodern assemblage of technology, communication, and addiction. The various relations of
the musicians/actors chronicle the human élan and it’s creative outpouring through self effacing methods and practices.
The Honey Sacrifice asks to remain an album closer to a novel, then a proper atmospheric soundtrack.
The name refers to a chapter of Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None, an 1883 work by German
philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The name’s relevance simply states the oppositional forces of things and situations
desirable and the sacrifices made to achieve them.

Captured digitally in 96 kHz, 24 bit resolution, production aspects were never compromised. Painstaking efforts have
been taken to capture all the nuances of the individual performances throughout the soundtrack.

If you are from the latter group then here's us getting the ball rolling, a compilation of the finest Post-Rock music around. A scientifically-proven mix of awe-inspiring tracks from both established and fledgling bands. Eight tracks of new, rare or unreleased material to tickle your fancy, tickle your auditory canal and to tick all your boxes with incendiary sonic explosions. There is of course a catch, much like your local drug-dealer, we give away the first hit free-of-charge in the knowledge that you'll keep coming back for more at slightly raised prices. This is what is called 'the music industry', so blow the moths from your wallet or purse and start purchasing some albums by these fine bands.
