Hi, World! I recently posted about me and my hard-disk. The resulting song was quite wild, and after >10h on it I was a little deaf so the mix was boomy. I kept the song as it was, just did a thighter, and cleaner mix. …See More

Athough “First” was not initially planned as a concept album the compositions are held together by the omnipresent duality we face. It inherits the internal strifle of individuals, the incapacity of the masses as well as the contrasts in nature and in life itself: Haunting romantic melodies packed together with machinelike sequences, flowing harmonic soundscapes clash with the crude electricity of industrial beats. 

“First” creates a dark and shimmering atmosphere far away from common superficiality and stereotype-thinking, a score for memories and dreams, personal and intimate for the ones who read between the lines.

My review of "Lalita" CDr by Al Gromer Khan

Posted by Richard Gürtler on May 2, 2015 at 11:47am 0 Comments

German virtuoso instrumentalist, sitarist and composer Al Gromer Khan has released during the middle of March 2015 through Rasa Music his newest album entitled "Lalita", focusing on The Eternal Feminine and its significance in music. 4-panel digipak nicely displays this theme with its rather plain cover design.



Shorter intro, "Tears At The Paisley", with its hauntingly infectious laid-back rhythm immediately sets the atmosphere, which is meticulously magnified by Al's narration and sitar subtleties counterpointed with ambiguous female choirs. The next piece, "On Golden Boat", keeps on the tranquilizing path, where gentle rhythms are bridged with voice fragments, chants, clapping sounds and sitar traceries. Uniquely scented and seductively nuanced!!! "Flower Child In Clearing" attracts by Al's expressively embracing lyricism (featuring words from the poem "Wake" by Timothy Allen) diverged with responding fragile female voice and distant chants of, I believe, Ute Gromer. Additional spectacle of sitar, guitar and piano patterns coalesces with fluttering beats. "Ahira" excels in stringed curlicue delicacy occasionally amalgamated with Al's voice and Ute's chant. A truly peculiar listening experience!!! "All Of This And More" swiftly fills the air with graceful soothingness, where misty monochromatic reverberations hang above strikingly splendorous piano nostalgia. The magic continues with the title composition, "Lalita-The Eternal Feminine", which masterfully blends richly fragranced sitar bravura with rhythmic delicacies at a leisurely pace. The next composition, "Elvis Went To Durgapur", is as much challenging as its title. Exceptionally enveloping serenity at the beginning transports the listener into an aural paradise of exquisite elegance, later fastidiously augmented…

RECAP:
On this show, I concluded the month-long focus on Sensitive Chaos. The Featured CD at Midnight was "Amerisynthecana" on Subsequent Records.

The right use of broken machines.

Slicing up a sample was already experimented at the time of tape machines. It has creared aesthetics that many people refer to on their DAWs. I'm still using hardware sampler, but last night something went wrong with my hard disk, which resulted in a (although not asked for) file that I tried to use before the disk let me down. Not everything is automated in the mix, last layers were done in a hassle, but since I'm not sure to be able to redo it, this is the final mix. The intro, as well as the perturbated solo part, were played on the instrument you see on the picture.  https://soundcloud.com/claudelebelge/machines-1
