In the area of Electronic Music like Electronica, Chillhouse, Downbeat, in the spheres of Ambient, Trip Hop and in the widths of Chillout and the realm of first class innovative Sounds, Jens Buchert - the "Sound Wizard" is one of the most talented musicians in these genres. Meanwhile he's a Electronic Music veteran - "Electronic Deep Moods Music at its best" is his attitude. Since more than 25 years the musician, producer, videoartist and film scientist is involved in electronic deep moods music with his heart and soul. The radio station “Chillout2NewYork” called him the “Wizard of Sounds”, because of his well-known sound creations. He is represented on more than 20 albums and 300 famous music compilations.
Described by producer Shu-Fang Wang as "an imaginary soundtrack originally composed for a film story set in Taipei," Before the Light gives the music of ECM recording artist Ketil Bjørnstad a cinematic twist. For this album, the pianist has written a handful of romantic melodies and atmospheric moods. The former are presented in different arrangements scattered throughout the album; the latter often include guitar soundscapes and programmed rhythm tracks. Bjørnstad is accompanied by guitarist Eivind Aarset, viola player Nora Taksdal, and keyboardist Kjetil Bjerkestrand. Each one of these short pieces (none over six minutes) makes a melodic statement that could be qualified as being quintessential ECM. .
City Music is an airplane descending over frozen lakes into Chicago. City Music is riding the Q Train out to Coney Island to smell the ocean and a morning in Philadelphia where greats cranes reconfigure the buildings like an endless puzzle. City Music is a quiet afternoon moment on a bench in Baltimore, a highway in Seattle at night where the distant houses look like tiny flames and a bottle of red wine being drained on a bridge in Paris. City Music is a bus pulling into St. Louis at dawn where the arch looks like a metal rainbow reflecting the days early sunlight…. City Music is also the new album by Kevin Morby. Full of listless wanderlust, it’s a collection inspired by and devoted to the metropolitan experience across America and beyond by a songwriter cast from his own mould. As he puts it: “It is a mix-tape, a fever dream, a love letter dedicated to those cities that I cannot get rid of, to those cities that are all inside of me.”
