2015-11-30 (News)

Aokigahara (青木ヶ原), known as the Suicide Forest is a 35-square-kilometre forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan. Aokigahara forest is dense, shutting out all but the natural sounds of the forest itself. The forest has an historic association with demons in Japanese mythology.
Duncan Ritchie explores the long journey to Aokigahara through soundscapes ripe with lonely pianos on textural backdrops.

Marek Marchoff - Funeral Musik for You and Me

2015-11-28 (News)

'Funeral Musik for You and Me' is the follow-up of the ideas that guided the creation of the previous Marchoff album entitled 'Funeral Musik für Jenny Marchoff'. However, in this case, it is devoid of a personal element, which was the laudation or registration of tormenting feelings after the loss of a loved one, and is more of a reflection on the meaning of life and death. The common denominator for both discs is certainly the nature of work and the type of measures, which helped Marek X. Marchoff during the recording sessions. While recording he also used analogue audio sources, including synthesizers of this type. This time he also invited his friend Tom Kalinovsky to collaborate on this album. Music, though far from the stem of Different State and 23 Threads styles, is equally interesting, intriguing and even inspiring. As in the case of 'Funeral Musik für Jenny Marchoff', the material has not been mastered in order to preserve the original shape and character of the 'Funeral Musik for You and Me' album as it was at the time of recordings.
