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.

Bottom Of The Ocean is the first full length release from Trevor Humphrey’s post-rock/ambient solo project, Deer Park Ranger. Bottom Of The Ocean is an extremely personal record that touches points of sorrow, pain, and fear while juxtaposing them with moments of hope, and elation. This blend highlights the dichotomy of emotions that are present during a major life change. The painful end of things you used to love, and the overwhelming excitement of your next chapter.

The 3-track EP capitalizes the theme of “darkness” and “light” as a metaphor for our lives. the piano and the string quartet now has a more haunting vibe than ever as well as the electronics are sounding even more alive.

Absence has been released

 

Gargle and Bosques de mi Mente’s Absence is a perfect album travels in the rivers of classical music, ambient and post-rock.

Bosques de mi Mente is a Spanish contemporary classical composer, that has been creating minimalist piano pieces over the years. Gargle is a duo from Japan that plays beautiful post-rock ambient with modern classical influences. Absence is their first collaboration from these two artists, a delightful and pleasant record.

It all started when the band contacted the composer, a correspondence that would result in a true friendship. Both shared stage in Madrid, Spain, in 2011.

Absence, the album, was conceived when Gargle asked Bosques de mi Mente to work on a song together for the forthcoming Gargle’s album. The experience was so fulfilling for them that they decided to expand on it, and so Absence was born.

From the beginning, the goal was to create a completely collaborative album. The process started by sharing small ideas and song pieces, and soon everything started to gall into place, leading to the three of them working together as a true three-piece band in a gradual and natural way. The result is pure harmony, beauty and a wing for atmosphere, space and time.

Bosques De Mi Mente’s pianos are like little paper ships floating over the water. String players from Tokyo College of Music, conducted by Jun gives the album a great symphonic dimension. Gargle’s guitars and accordions gets the music over the stratosphere. Hope to see these modern classical pieces turn into modern classics.

Olekksii’s modern classical approach in electronica: “Iris”

Olekksii is the stage name of the electronic musician Alexey Krolevets from Kiev, Ukraine. His electronica travels in the rivers of classical music.

 His debut work “Iris” EP is soon to be released on Fluttery Records. The label founder Taner Torun says “We receive a lot of music submissions from all over the world. We try to listen them all. When we were listening to Olekksii, we felt like he must be a part of our family.”

 Olekksii’s music combines electronic music with classical music elements. He says “My way is to connect both too worlds of music fans: conservative classic music lovers and liberate generation of electronic supporters”. When you listen to his music, piano melodies comes together with lush strings and powerful tubes mixed along with electronic beats and basses. These compositions rise the atmosphere of harmony and beauty.

 He says he is very impressed by the saying of Autechre: “It’s all like looking at gene cycles, who inherits what. You’ve got your X and your Y, and you mix them.”

Recent debut “Iris” EP made by Olekksii is a pill which helps you to struggle with such a modern world feelings like lonelines, sorrow, inconstancy. If you impressed by works of Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter, Kettel, Ochre, Jon Hopkins or Nils Frahm you definitely need to give “Iris” EP a try.
