SUNDAY AMBIENCE…

Not all Sunday’s have a quiet drift. Sometimes Sunday can sound like this and be challenging in a good way…

GOL, Ana-Maria Avram, Iancu Dumitrescu And Members Of Ansamblul Hyperion – Musique Directe (Full)

Volume 1, hence the title “Musique Directe”, shows the band facing the leaders of Roumenian spectralism Ana-Maria Avaram and Iancu Dumitrescu. Electric and intense spontaneous experiments, on the edge of electroacoustic music and primitive avant-garde.” – Soundohm

Else Marie Pade – Electronic Works 1958-1995 — Yeah I Know It Sucks

As usual a different take on the works of Else Marie Pade but this is one of the best descriptions of her music…

Dangling on the fine line of enjoyment and captivating interest. Things ploink and plink like smooth lines of water drips with enough sparkles to widen up your iris. Things play like electronic breaths that give life to the silence, that shovel around the furniture of vibrating sounds with great expense, leaving you in a state of mind that is equally reached when listening to the soundtrack of a strange movie in which you feel disoriented and yet firmly at home.“…

Yes…Indeed.
