Making ambient music on Stained Glass: Monochromie

 

 

 

 

Monochromie strikes back again. Wilson Trouvé, a French composer now living in Belgium, has been composing and releasing ambient music and modern classical compositions since 2012, the year of his debut album “Angels and Demons”. As a pianist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, he has released at least six full-length albums and other EP on various independent labels.

Stained Glass talks about purity, serenity and sometimes storms as well. Life is made of changes, breaks, new starts, periods of noise or silence. Stained Glass tries to capture those moving moments, often ephemeral and beautiful, peaceful or even disturbing, colorful or dark, at night or during a sunny day. Those inspirational and emotional pictures of life always emerge from Monochromie’s music. Stained Glass is also about that light that comes across windows, suddenly enlightening our home and calling us outside for a walk. Monochromie’s music is made of light.

It took two years for Stained Glass to be finally completed with additional tracks. At the same period of time, Wilson Trouvé (Monochromie) has left the south of France to live in Brussels. If you still haven’t heard about Monochromie, let’s start today with Stained Glass which is a stunning collection of ambient and experimental tracks. Then you can explore all of Monochromie’s previous albums including his debut opus “Angels and Demons” released in 2012 on Fluttery Records.

Ghost Island re-issues Destroyer. Remastered!

We are very happy to release the debut album by Ghost Island, Destroyer. Initially planned as a small EP release by John, Destroyer blossomed into a full-length album once John and Roddy began collaborating. Written from a place of self-reflection, the album reflects John’s crumbling network and inner circle of friends, stemming from his previous band’s breakup; Destroyer takes a dark journey through nine tracks full of doubt, anger, fatigue, and loss. Recorded entirely in a small bedroom in Phoenix, Arizona, and mixed in-house, Destroyer represents the initial foundations of a band still discovering it’s identity while trying to survive as individuals.

Destroyer was first released in 2015. Album is now remastered and available on CD.

Nadav Cohen from Melbourne makes string arrangements float on ambient waves.

We are very happy to release music from Australia for the first time. We are going to Melbourne to listen a great talent. His name is Nadav Cohen.

Lacuna is Cohen’s first release with Fluttery Records and was written, recorded and produced by Nadav Cohen in his home studio in Melbourne. The music may find itself traveling across the territories of ambient, classical or electronic music. Cohen describes his desire to write music with one word: Emotion.

Lacuna is Nadav Cohen’s attempt to represent emotion in sound form. Despite focusing primarily on melancholy, Cohen uses the track ‘Soft Touch’ to add a shimmer of light in the pool of fervor he has created.Cohen describes his thought process as ‘logical and sequential’ which can be heard throughout Lacuna as the tracks are layered and built upon.

If you like listen a very good ambient album with modern classical touches, have a listen to Lacuna.

Artglider is a nice platform to promote music

We often receive emails from young people who want to start their own music label. Looking back, Fluttery Records is eight years old label and things have changed since we started. Our ideas and vision have inspired many labels which came after us. They modified themselves in many ways from how they sign new artists to how they communicate with their followers, friends and fans.

To start and run a music label became much easier. Running your own music label still takes your time and it might not be a good life choice if you are not financially and mentally prepared. But what I want to talk about is the positive side of it. If you have time to spare, some money to invest in good people and good music and if you are open to learn new things it might be a good choice.

How technology made it easier? First, it became easy to digitally distribute your releases. It has revolutionized the way people listen to music but still there was a big gap.
