Ian Boddy & Erik Wøllo first worked together on the Frontiers album released in 2012 as a limited edition CD. This musical travelogue through imaginary northern landscapes garnered high praise for it’s shifting moods and panoramic soundscapes. The duo were invited to play their inaugural concert at the Electronic Circus Festival V held in Guetersloh, Germany in the autumn of 2012. The organisers requested that Boddy & Wøllo performed as much of the Frontiers album as possible and indeed tracks 4 to 12 are taken from that release albeit interpreted for a live concert setting. A further 30 minutes of all new material was also composed and this comprises the opening 3 tracks of the concert…

This is a fine Testament release taken from the archives of Netherlands Radio and enshrines some magnificent Barbirolli performances in somewhat opaque sound. The Satie Gymnopedie's have a delicate and loving sound that reveal Sir John's deep and intrinsic love for the miniaturistic charm of these enchanting pieces. Britten's 'Sinfonia da Requiem' was another Barbirolli speciality and this is one of many recordings available. However it is intriguing to observe the special attention and alertness that the Concertgebouw players impart to the music that takes on an added grandeur. However it is the Dvořák Seventh that is the real highlight of the disc as it is a version to die for! Sir John handles the music with real imagery and heart-on-sleeve emotion that almost rivals Kertész and Sejna, my other preferred versions in this landmark work.

During the moving final scene of his film Modern Times (1936), Charlie Chaplin (18891977) shows a picture of a man and a woman. She is crying. He moves his finger to the corner of his mouth, draws a smile, and conjures up a smile on her face. In the end they walk away, hand in hand, on their journey to the horizon and to an unknown future. During this final image, a melody that later was given the title Smile is being played. As with many of his films, Chaplin composed the music himself. Smile acts as the finale for the collection of works on this CD, which have at their centre a song cycle by the Belgian composer Godfried Devreese (18931962), written during the horrors of the First World War.

Larance Marable (May 21, 1929 - July 4, 2012) was a West Coast jazz hard bop drummer born in Los Angeles, California, probably best known for his work with Charlie Haden in his Quartet West. However, Marable also had a strong career first as a bop musician in the 1950s working with the likes of Dexter Gordon and Charlie Parker, among others. In the 1960s he started to venture into the cool jazz idiom with musicians like Zoot Sims, George Shearing and Chet Baker, although he worked with Baker as early as 1956 on the album "Chet Baker Sings". Earlier in his career, he was known as Lawrence Marable…

WEB FLAC (tracks) - 193 MB | Front cover
Genre: Electronic, Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Projekt Records

Echotides is highly engaging and meditative with a delicate and finely structured symbiosis between the slow motion atmospheres, sparse melodic lines and detailed rhythms (accentuated by the contributions from percussionist Kouame Sereba on two tracks.) Echotides is deeply expansive and contemplative electronic music. These sonic identities reflect the ever-changing alternatives in nature and our environments. It’s music that is rich in depth and colors with echoes of memories and imaginary places, epic dimensions and a minimalist’s restrained elegance.

This electronic/ambient release is Erik Wollo’s 2015 live performance at the late-night Star’s End radio show on WXPN in Philadelphia. This is a long-form, introspective 60-minute piece with thirteen sections of enigmatic textural components organically flowing into each other. Eschewing the melody and harmony found in Wøllo’s studio work, Star’s End 2015 is an intricate expression of ambience and this artist’s potent skills at creating space and ever-expanding sound-universes…
