For Isolated Recollections
CD-R/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Hibernate records, 2011
When you talk about less is more in ambient music, it’s worth having a listen to the Ep "For Isolated Recollections" by young composer Szymon Kalisk, who lives in a small town near Poznań, Poland.
The four pieces on the 20-minute release are all assembled from simple acoustic loops and field recordings. It all leads to an overall abstract but spacious atmospheric soundpainting with an experimental and repetitive edge, put together by treated piano keys, lost and found sounds (static and gritty) and glitches.
Those familiar with the more adventurous oriented output of the Databloem label will find this up their alley. In its own right, this music might be the sonic metafor for visualizing the beauty of decay in total remoteness.
"For Isolated Recollections" is available as a limited edition of 100 3" cdrs attached to a hand numbered postcard, but also as digital download (without minimum price) from Szymon’s bandcamp page.
