Touch have done it again then and thrown out yet another high water mark for the genre and a shining beacon in a mire of mediocrity. Nilsen has been busy in the last few years, contributing to the incredible 'Storm' album with field recording veteran Chris Watson and also to 'Second Childhood' with cellist Hildur Gudnadóttir and Icelandic trio Stilluppsteypa but 'The Short Night' feels like the masterwork these records were building up to. The Short Night falls into an area of experimental electronic music somewhere between Murcof, Stars Of The Lid, Biosphere and Pan Sonic. Nilsen har en formidabel evne til at bruge field recordings, forskelligt optageudstyr og manipulation af elektroniske kilder til at skabe storslåede freskoer af lyd. And he likes his music to be dark. This time he adds harsher yet clearer harmonies with musical elements to the compositions, creating a beautifully complex and detailed study.
We will get in touch with you before any package is re-sent. The Short Night is verplichte kost voor liefhebbers van het betere zweef- en vliegwerk. Och lyckat har musiken i högre grad än tidigare fått strukturer av låtar med melodiska teman, om än långsamma och med en något diffus rytmik. You know, like you get on a radio. Parcelforce is a Monday - Friday service. What it lacks in obvious melody, it more than makes up for in mood and atmosphere. These cookies are also optional - amend them below.
Delivery Times The delivery times below are estimates. Diese werden hier innerhalb eines Rahmens platziert, der deutlich über das reine Collagieren der Aufnahmen hinausgeht. Han bygger med varje skiva en ram som vi själva får fylla med de sinnesbilder och associationer lyssnandet skapar. Obwohl die beiden ihre Kollaborationen fortsetzen und in Form von »Storm« 2006 sogar vertiefen sollten, bleibt die erhabene Zurückhaltung von »Wind« und »Land« eine Klasse für sich. Langzaam maar zeker wordt het dreunende geluid van de zware machines sterker. Subscribed email alerts If you have subscribed to our then we will send you alerts according to your choices.

Orders between £30 - £49. Once you have added items to your crate you can select your country and choose either to send everything in one package or to ship as soon as the items become available. Maar neem wel een regenpak mee. Most international orders are considered missing after 25 working days with the exception of France, South America and Africa - packages to these destinations are considered missing after 60 working days. This time he adds harsher yet clearer harmonies with musical elements to the compositions, creating a beautifully complex and detailed study. Northern Ireland : 1 working day except for highlands of Scotland and parts of Scotland, please get in touch for further information.
Orders over £50 are charged a £3 insurance supplement. He mixed in fact field recordings from Sweden, England, Italy and Iceland with quietly unfolding electronic backgrounds — at times reminiscent of the best Eno — and harsher manifestations of saturated, oppressive static music, the whole obtained through an array of machines minutely detailed by the author on the cover of prevalently analogue derivation, yielding sonorities whose embracing, but at the same time dangerous warmth is at the basis of several moments of sluggish torpor. Maybe it's due to the hypnotic nature of the compositions that draw you in and take hold of you entirely or possibly the actual character of the vintage generators used but the sounds float in and out of your consciousness with a wool-lined ease. We pack all of our orders using appropriate packaging, however when you pick this option we use a wider cruciform offering additional protection if you have a particularly heavy-handed postman. The mood is one of grim, crust-laden darkness, something akin to being trapped in an abandoned building as the Phantom of the Opera plays mercilessly in a sewer below - but while the mood is shadowy the sounds never become oppressive. The mood is one of grim, crust-laden darkness, something akin to being trapped in an abandoned building as the Phantom of the Opera plays mercilessly in a sewer below — but while the mood is shadowy the sounds never become oppressive. Is it too much to ask that we shouldn't have to rely on promo fliers which, after all, most of the audience won't even have? I'm not saying The Short Night fails because Nilsen went to greater lengths producing it than perhaps he needed to; The Short Night fails because of everything about it.
Western Europe: 2-3 working days for most countries but takes longer shipping to Finland, Greece, Italy, Norway, Portugal and Sweden. Recorded in 2006-7 with mostly analogue equipment, using up to 50 year-old tapemachines, filters and generators that end up being the soft cushion in these cold location recordings. A kind of back-to-nature, earth science electronica if that makes any sense. Nilsen's already built up a good body of work in recent years, something which The Short Night continues. Available items should ship to you within the time-frame indicated.
Utilising his tuned ear for field recording, Nilsen blends environmental sounds collected in Sweden, Iceland and England and layers them above and beneath some quite stunninelectronic parts. Nilsen is still concerned with the recording of outdoor sounds, and has a bunch of old synthesizers and a computer. These aren't the only clichés pushed to the forefront in the sparse environment of The Short Night; there are actually quite a host of them. Turning off will mean that your activity is not sent to these services. The Short Night is an ambient album with a dark alter-ego of menacing, insistent, slowly grinding industrial tones. If we think there is an issue with the shipping address, or that packages are being stolen in the post, we reserve the right to refuse future orders to these addresses. Han giver den nærmest kosmiske dimensioner, hvor lytteren suges ind i et nærvær, der bringer én tættere på verden — og det er det mest vidunderlige ved Nilsens musik: at den på én gang skaber distance og nærvær.
De experimentele muzikant legde in de laatste jaren een overtuigend parcours af. However pre-order release dates are liable to change, if you have ordered two pre-orders with the same date to ship together and then one release date gets pushed back, we will ship the available pre-order straight away and the second pre-order as soon as it becomes available with no extra shipping charge. If there are any unforeseen issues with availability we will notify you immediately. Nilsen spelar skickligt på förmågan att skapa sinnesbilder när vi hör något. Die Aufnahmen aus Umwelt und Natur diesmal Schweden, Island, England werden hier ausschließlich durch analoges Equipment, Filter, Generatoren oder durch den Gebrauch von 50 Jahre alten Kassettenrekordern verfremdet. Selten zuvor schließlich waren geheimnisvolle Feldaufnahmen so eng und selbstverständlich mit einer musikalischen Begleitung verwachsen, die in dieser Form zur absoluten Speerspitze dessen gehört, was jemals einen Ton auf Touch veröffentlichen durfte. Engelska väderleksrapporter möter keyboardliknande klanger i låtar med namn som Icing station och Viking north.
