Gamardah Fungus :: Fairytales (Flaming Pines)

The immersive, enigmatic and sometimes detached textures are made of micro noise interferences, guitar tricks, reverbs, found sounds and sustained droning moves framed by a dissonant/consonant compositional mode.

I’ve always been fond of Flaming Pines‘ DIY philosophy, passion and interest for home made “chamber” ambient music and “sound mapping.” In this register the UK based label belongs to a creative community which is growing bigger year after year (when we notify the number of labels and adventurous listeners around). They are now welcoming the Ukranian-based project Gamardah Fungus—I first heard about them when I collected one of their tracks for the Triple Moon 2017 compilation.

I love the poetical and dreamlike handy craft cover artwork of their new release, it visually prefigures an enchanting, intimate and charming atmosphere to sonically fascinating dronescapes. Gamardah Fungus consists of a duet between Igor Yalivec, Sergey Yagoda. Their musical signature operates a syncretism between free-form improvs, minimalist dark jazz, aleatoric experimentations, noisy drone textures and soothing ambient waves. All those elements and palette of emotional colors seem to be present in this new release. The immersive, enigmatic and sometimes detached textures are made of micro noise interferences, guitar tricks, reverbs, found sounds and sustained droning moves framed by a dissonant/consonant compositional mode. Poetically data-esque ambient weirdness that will easily convince fans of challenging, electro-acoustic and unusual music.

Fairytales is available on Flaming Pines.
