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 […]

The research on sound forms, field recordings and urban soundscaping textures guarantees an active listening experience, investing our consciousness, our sense of hearing and cognitive capabilities around the notion of memory, reflectivity and intuition.

Fabulations provides an inner voyage, a cinematic experience for the ears and dreamily intuitive sonic meditations where flowing droning chords subtly communicate with detached, touching guitar resonances and sound art narratives. Kate Carr is an Australian sound designer and experimental musician now located in Ireland. I’ve previously heard about her work and her name thanks […]

V/A :: Birds of a Feather 7-12 (Flaming Pines)

Twelve birds in a modified birdhouse are way better than two in the bush. Flaming Pines has just wrapped up its beautifully beaky Birds of a Feather series with a feathery flourish (we’ve previously enjoyed the first six volumes here and here).

Yuco :: I’m Living with Melancholy in the Fog (Flaming Pines)

Miyazaki plays simple, elegant, actually more optimistic than sorrowful melodies on guitar, piano and sitar, gorgeously perched atop shoreline field recordings captured, looped and layered by Kobayash. [Release page] Masayoshi Miyazaki says I’m Living with Melancholy in the Fog is “a sad album…written on the abyss of despair.” Together with Hiroshi Kobayash, he needed to […]

V/A :: Birds of a Feather (Flaming Pines)

Hatami says he has always been fascinated by the black woodpecker and its unique dining habits. Living in Sanandaj, Kurdistan, at the foot of a great mountain, his piece is more epic.

Seth Chrisman :: Aetherdrift, Do You Copy? (Flaming Pines)

Lazy ambient drifts into stylus static, the sea washing up the shore insinuates itself into the conversation inside someone’s busy kitchen. This is not New Mexico native Seth Chrisman’s debut recording but it is the first under his given name. Behind the misleadingly retro-futuristic title and cover art (which is still terrific, like all Flaming […]
