'Dropped Pianos' is somewhat of a companion piece to Tim Hecker's masterful 'Ravedeath, 1972' from earlier this year - nine piano sketches recorded in the album's preparation. Exploring more sombre moods and transparent instrumentation, 'Dropped Pianos' is a fantastic work in its own right however. Highly recommended.
'Felt' is the second album of Berlin-based Nils Frahm, who imbues his neo-classical piano composition with an aura of melancholic pop weightlessnes. The album has a subtle electronic edge, harmonies reminiscent of Apparat or The Knife, while the sounds of the actual workings of the piano make the recordings eerily transparent. Great album.
Live recording of a 6-channel concert in which Thomas Lehn, analogue synth improviser and computer music whiz Marcus Schmickler meet once again. Together these modern legends of analogue and digital electronic create an absolutely riveting, spine-tingling 46 minutes of masterful experimental sonics.
