Good to listen: Paul Kendall | Angleterror

I have always been listening to music trying to find out what/who influenced the artist. Did he stick to the original idea and fight their way across invited producers and sound engineers?

After years I came to the conclusion that I was very fascinated with the production and mixing tracks / albums. Especially with the people with their characteristic handwriting, who metaphorically signed the record. I even feel now that I search more albums primarily by co-producer than by artist. And nothing better can happen than when a producer / sound engineer issues his/her own project (I wrote about the producent works of Eno, sound accomplishments of Laco Lučenič or Byrne)… Pokračovať v čítaní článku “Good to listen: Paul Kendall | Angleterror”

Teror zvuku (Paula Kendalla)

Vždy som sa pri počúvaní hudby snažil zistiť čo skupinu alebo jednotlivého umelca ovplyvňovalo. Zostala pri nahrávaní pôvodná idea alebo to celé prebili prizvaní producenti a zvukoví inžinieri?

Až po rokoch som došiel k záveru, že ma fascinuje samotná produkcia a mixáž nahrávok/ albumov a hlavne ľudia so svojim typickým rukopisom, ktorý sa zásadne podpíše pod nahrávku diela. Dokonca mám pocit, že albumy vyhľadávam skôr prioritne podľa spolupracujúceho producenta ako podľa umelca. A nič lepšie sa nemôže stať, ako keď producent/zvukový inžinier vydá vlastný projekt (písal som už o dielach Ena, elektronických sférach šesťdesiatnikov, u nás počiny Lučeniča, pomocnom betónovaní Byrneho).

Good to listen: Brian Eno | Drums between the Bells

Put the world-renowned producer and founder of ambient, sound engineer Brian Eno “with the drums between the bells” and get an album that once again reinforces the bases of art and music scene in general…

There’s a new Brian Eno album “Drums Between the Bells” full of broadband sounds, electronics and other styles mixed with hardly defined, but interesting atmosphere. Thanks to common themes, Eno has united with a poet Rick Holland and almost 10 years of their cooperation have materialized in this work. A further dimension of recording was delivered by invited artists such as Grazyna Goworek, Caroline Wild, Laura Spagnuolo, Nick Robertson, Anastasia Afonina and others…

It’s an “abstract concept” in which Eno is well aware of what he wants to say and says what is so close to his heart. At the same time you will feel like it’s not possible to play these songs live. Songs begin with a theme that dies before the song ends :) …

Bless This Space is similar to Eno’s other album Another Green World or Another Day On Earth – but with present sound. Single Glitch with Kraftwerk-like voice will certainly please your ears – I always feel as if Eno holds a needle and digs into the vinyl :), the result being a wonderful song.

Slow Pour It Out is an emotional trip to your soul and possibly you will start to think about your values.
Seedpods is a song with a strong voice and an outstanding color ofrising melody.

The highlight is a hard, pulsing and powerful song Sounds Alien – and I’m really wondering if “aliens” were actually there in a studio within these 3 minutes of recording. Other songs don’t have to be described in details – all you need is high-quality headphones and enough time to be a part of music scences.

The album was released under the label Warp in all phys. formats…

Zhudobnená Prvá dáma Filipín

Detstvo strávené v chudobe, dlhé roky vládnutia so svojim manželom – prezidentom Filipín, topánková mánia, kumulovanie majetku, devastácia krajiny, prehlbovanie chudoby filipínskeho ľudu až po útek z paláca…to všetko sa stalo predmetom zhudobnenia.
