Heinali presents his new waves

Heinali - A Wave Breaks

Heinali is a project by a music composer and a sound artist from Ukraine, Oleg Shpudeiko and his new release A Wave Crashes has been just released.

Oleg is a self-taught artist, who started to compose in 2003 and even though his music style can be defined as stylistically eclectic, many of his compositions are electroacoustic and often incorporate sound processing methods and techniques. He became a part of Solama art group and started to compose music for installations and performances.

His debut album “67 Breaths” was released in 2011. This was followed by “Air” on Fluttery Records in 2012, which was characterised by minimalist, chamber compositions for piano, strings and field recordings. In the same year two CDs, combining spoken word performance and heavy guitar sound, ‘Conjoined’ and ‘Ain’t No Night’ were released on Paradigms Recordings in collaboration with American poet Matt Finney. His last project was the “Blook” duo which he formed with classically trained music composer Alexey Shmurak.

Heinali’s live shows usually feature free electro-acoustic improvisations. Oleg also works as a music composer, writing music for films, games and other media.

The new album by Heinali, “A Wave Crashes” consists of material recorded during electroacoustic studio improvisations incorporating analogue synthesizers and analogue and digital sound processing. It’s a kind of a sound sculpture of a certain moment almost frozen in time, letting you experience it from the different angles of space.

The EP mastered by Lawrence English, while album photography credits goes to Alex Naselenko.

22 Feb 2012

Italian ambient / electro-acousitic project, Music For No Movies releases the debut album

Ambient Electro acoustic project Music For No Movies

Federico Fantuz is an Italian modern music composer, who has just released his debut album on Fluttery Records. Music For No Movies is Fantuz’s electro-acoustic / ambient tunes where he creates a warm cinematic atmosphere by his guitar strings and ambient pads.

Violent Zen is his 11 piece debut. As a music journalist points out “Not only does Music For No Movies turn the very idea of sountrack inside-out – it also succeeds in creating experimental yet intriguing and deeply fascinating soundscapes. Very well done indeed.”

Fluttery Records defines the album like this: “Music For No Movies is a reverse project composed of “orphan” tracks and conceived as soundtracks in search of their cinematic motherhood.The different tracks aim at ecstatic, evocative and dilated atmospheres. More precisely they are cozy and rarefied melodies, distant and unsettling sounds, odd times and grotesque echoes. The core of all the arrangements is the search of an intensity and a sense of suspension that resembles somehow the suspended feeling one has watching a movie.”

The album is recommended if you like Brian Eno, Ralph Towner, Dead Can Dance, Steve Tibbetts, Arvo Pärt , Ennio Morricone, Ry Cooder, Sigur Rós, Yann Tiersen, Labradford, Mark Templeton, North Sea, Xela.

Debut Album of Music For No Movies

The album has already received very good reviews. Here are some of them:

ROLLING STONE:
“Waterquake” is an exhilarating and haunting track suitable for a great dramatic picture whereas the opener “Air Games” operates in the area of a crepuscular and gently melancholy. Other outstanding songs are the irresistible “Earth Job”, adorned with unconventional sounds like chair creaks and coins falls, perfect for a mystery picture, “Wind Wash”, particularly fitting for a positive final sequence in a sad drama that ends full of hope, and “Fire and Sky”, that only asks to be used in an historical movie, maybe in the Spain of the eighteenth century. The intriguing and obsessive “Arvo Moon” is instead suitable for a sequence in which is described the passage of time: in general the instruments’ assemblage is excellent and the arrangement very smooth in order to create a music in which you can pleasantly lose yourself.”

MUSIC REVIEWS:
“The summer is on its way, and with it comes some of the worst movies of the year. Therefore, if you enjoy high quality movies, the summer may not be the best time for you to venture out to the theater. However, with Violent Zen, you can make up your own movies, right there in your mind. The acting will be superb, while the ending will be satisfying because it’s your film. Just imagine the possibilities.”

The album is available on major music download stores like Itunes, Bandcamp, AmazonMP3. The album can be steamed and purchased on the Fluttery Records website.
