Modern classical / ambient artist Heinali releases a new album : Air

Heinali airs his ambient mood classics. Oleg Shpudeiko (the man behind Heinali) creates a gloomy atmospheric environment with the piano, strings, ambient / glitch structures. “Air” is his 6 song album.

Heinali from Kiev, Ukraine started composing music in 2003. His sound is generally eclectic, though often described as atmospheric and emotional. In 2009 he joined the Soloma art group and composed music for media art performances “Traces on the Snow”, premiered at “I Love Kiev” contemporary art festival (Kiev, Ukraine, 2009) and “Aero”, premiered at “Gogol Fest” contemporary art festival (Kiev, Ukraine, 2010). His music was featured in ‘Ni Ogros Ni Princesas’ Provizional Danza choreography directed by Carmen Werner (Madrid, Spain, 2011). Collaborated with Maria Navrotskaya, Pleq, Merzbow, Aiode, Anton Baibakov, Orchestra Eclettica e Sincretista, Matt Finney. Collaboration with American poet Matt Finney became a separate heavier and darker sounding project. In 2011 they wrote music for the opening of Olya Pischanskaya’s photo exhibition, which took place at Korobchinsky Art Centre (Odessa, Ukraine, 2011).

Heinali joined Fluttery Records family in 2012. “We first signed international music project Draff Krimmy” says Taner Torun, the label owner. “Jan Hammer recommended us Jun Minowa and his projects Gargle and Yawning. Heinali was introduced to us by Jun Minowa. It seems that artist we work with are so happy that they are recommending us to their friends and our family is growing that way.”

When we return to Heinali’s latest “Air” we find cinematic sad music, strings moving around the central piano motifs which are minimalistic. Power of light touches, the ambience, the echo and the sense.

“signalsundertests” release Nascent on Fluttery Records

Richard (Ricky) Graham is a highly inspired and enthusiastic musician and music producer originally from Northern Ireland, now based in the USA. His music productions encompass everything from ambient to experimental to progressive music.

Graham has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and US promoting various music releases since 2006, recorded various sessions for BBC radio, and his productions have featured on regional and national TV & Radio. Ricky has been involved with a multitude of music festivals and performance events, sharing the stage with Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1) and Boxcutter (Planet Mu) in 2008, and electronica legend, Ulrich Schnauss in 2009. Graham completed his Ph.D in music in 2012. The same year, Graham joined Fluttery Records family.

signalsundertests is Graham’s sonic playground, beginning life as a collaborative project with fellow artisan, John King. Since 2008, Graham has developed the signalsundertests project to attend to the effects of interactive music technology on music performance, resulting in a series of collaborations with a conglomeration of contrasting artists.

“Nascent” features a series of ambient guitar-based musical works. The pieces seek to interrogate the increasingly polyphonic nature of the solo performing electronic guitarist. The disc features a series of refined live improvisations through production techniques. The live recordings were produced with hardware and software developed by Graham. The album features collaborative efforts from Irish Composer, Michael Andrews, and American Vocalist, Laura Graham. Dublin- based producer, Philip Byrne, mastered the disc. The artwork is by Tennessee-based Artist, Jon Kenney. Overall, this album has resulted from a positive musical experience, which Graham calls his best work, thus far.

signalsundertests produce sound sculptures; and they talk to you, as if they were communicating directly to your face. There are plenty of drone, ambient / electronic(a) musicians out there, but not many produce music with bespoke music software and hardware developed by themselves.

Guitar Player Magazine says: “The brainchild of Northern Irish experimental guitarist, Ricky Graham, in collaboration with composer and tape-wrangler, Michael Andrews, this music began as a series of improvisations created utilising looping and processing software and polyphonic guitar hardware developed by Graham, and was later refined into its present form. Unlike other “drone” and “atmospheric” music, it possesses a subtle evocative and majestic quality reminiscent of masters such as Brian Eno, Michael Brook, and Robert Rich.”
