Kryshe :: March of the Mysterious (Serein)

A highly spacious and deeply absorbing piece of sonic expressivity that sucks you deep into the rabbit hole.

German musician, producer, multi-instrumentalist and a member of the experimental/classical/ambient project Unland, Christian Grothe, returns as Kryshe with a wonderful new album on the excellent Serein imprint.

As stated on the press release, March of the Mysterious stems from music made to accompany a showing of the 1915 silent film, Alice in Wonderland. It feels like the wild sonic love child of Nils Petter Molvær, Arve Henriksen, Eno, Budd and Pink Floyd, but you won’t come across any imitations within the 10 compositions; Kryshe has developed his own modus operandi and sound and style.

Emotionally open and atmospherically charged, Kryshe uses piano, brass, guitar and percussion as his main tools, and electronic processing as a seasoning. The result is a highly spacious and deeply absorbing piece of sonic expressivity that sucks you deep into the rabbit hole. Kryshe has managed to concoct an alluring intimate affair. The flow is slow, assertive, effortless, driven by curiosity, passion and improvisation. An imagination stimulator.

March of the Mysterious is a little celebration of shimmering colors and bubbling textures, perfectly suitable to welcome and enhance the seductive irresistible spell of the autumn.

March of the Mysterious is available on Serein.
