My review of "Quiraing" CD by Blake Gibson & Robert Davies

Posted by Richard Gürtler on April 12, 2015 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Edmonton based Canadian dronescaper Blake Gibson, rather known under his moniker Broken Harbour, has 3 solo albums to his credit, while Robert Davies from Ithaca, New York, a master od drone subtlety, is one of the familiar names constantly releasing through Canadian DataObscura label. His discography features 15 solo albums (one on Stefano Musso's Hic Sunt Leones label) plus 5 albums as The Winterhouse (with DataObscura's Anthony Paul Kerby/APK). Now, Blake & Robert have joined their drift routines for "Quiraing" album, which was released at January 25th, 2015 on Databloem. It looks like this Dutch label has resurrected their Practising Nature packaging concept featuring slim maxi single jewel case with a j-card, but this time with a glass mastered CD. Stunning picture of Quiraing by Ian Cameron, showcasing part of this distinctive landscape in Scotland, formed by a great series of landslips, immediately sets the atmosphere both these dronesculptors are ready to ignite.



So no surprisingly, it's the title piece, 11-minute "Quiraing", that unfolds this journey. Deep drone scenario immediately invades the listening environment. Spiraling monochromatism secures its dominant mindscaping position, while organic traceries ephemerally keep on emerging. Enigmatically growling sounds sneak in as well, but alternate with occasionally climaxing dissonances, which awake even some phantoms. The drone consonance is fully blossoming, a pure magic, just like the awe-inspiring green slopes of Quiraing. Well-done, guys!!! "Seaside Surreal" delves into quieter dreamy terrains, but as much intense as the title piece. Expanding into magnificently celestial infinity, where utterly graceful choir-like drones are soothingly nuanced, crescendoed and alleviated with intangibly crystalline…

My review of "The Sound Of Silas" 2xCDr by Cousin Silas

Posted by Richard Gürtler on April 11, 2015 at 1:28am 0 Comments

Cousin Silas (aka Dave Hughes) is an enormously prolific soundsculptor based in Huddersfield, UK, who is active since 2001 releasing his music almost entirely on digital formats. So that's the main reason Cousin Silas' music has remained unknown to me until then end of September 2014, when a double CDr album "The Sound Of Silas" was announced by We Are All Ghosts netlabel run by Thomas Mathie aka Headphonaught (Motherwell, UK), who strongly supports this highly crafted ambient guitar soundscaper since 2012. The double album is packaged in a really catchy 6-panel fold out digipak hand-made by Brin Coleman (known as Bing Satellites) with gorgeous photographies by Ukrainian artist Oleg Tishkovets and extensive liner notes about Cousin Silas story by Kevin Lyons. "The Sound Of Silas", as the first physical release of We Are All Ghosts, was released in limited edition of 100 copies and, unfortunately, it was sold out in one month. Yes, I understand I am coming with this review a way too late, but you can always grab a digital version of this stunningly magnificent recording and I still really hope one day a reissue of this double album will see the light of day, because there is much huger potential in it, I would certainly love to see this reissued in a glass mastered version for example!!! That's my dream, even if I am one of those 100 happy owners of this monstrous double CDr beauty!!! Anyway, I always wanted to pen down my feelings about this utterly immersing gem, I won't hesitate to even use the word milestone, yes, that's how great is this collection!!! I should add that physical copy was sold with We Are All Ghosts badge and a download code to a bonus album of remixes from Jack Hertz, Kevin Lyons, Bing Satellites, Shane Morris and Ade Hodges.
