Thibaut Devigne A record that I would definitively place in ambiant. There is a big melancholy feeling coming out of its tune, something probably due to the use of old records's samples. It is not dreadful though, navigating a fine line. I'd recommend a listen to anyone looking for calm music with depth. Favorite track: cap811.

about

Producer and film composer Keju Luo further explores electroacoustic possibilities on his latest album. During a period of writer's block, Keju resorted to “stealing” and sampled public domain recordings of works by a wide range of composers from Marais to Liszt to Debussy. These decades-old materials performed by the now deceased were edited and processed until barely recognizable while maintaining their orchestral and melodic nature, and then carefully layered with electronic rhythms and undertones. The result is a collection of haunting and mesmerizing soundscapes.

制作人罗可居在新专辑中继续探索 electroacoustic 的更多可能。在创作瓶颈期的罗可居从公共版权领域收集了大量古典乐录音,以“窃取”为出发点寻找出口。这些素材经过拼贴处理已近乎不可辨识,但仍留有管弦乐和古旧录音的特殊材质,再结合细心叠加的电子氛围和节奏,构成了一系列诡异而迷人的声音图景。
