Harmaja by Mathias Grassow & Heikki Lindgren
Posted Fri Apr 12, 2024 2:52 am by CyclicalDreams
New releases Bandcamp: https://cyclicaldreams.bandcamp.com/album/harmaja-cyd-0104

CD edition: https://kunaki.com/sales.asp?PID=PX00GKY7FE&pp=1
All CD editions: https://kunaki.com/msales.asp?PublisherId=173070&pp=1

The weather conditions along the Finnish coast are observed at 38 coastal weather stations, making marine weather reports an integral part of navigation in the region and throughout the Baltic Sea. Harmaja island, situated off the coast of Helsinki, where a lighthouse has stood since the 18th century, now also houses a coastal weather station. The album 'Harmaja' draws its inspiration from the Baltic Sea, much like its predecessor, 'Shallow Waters'.

Just as coastal weather stations sit at the edge of land and sea, capturing the nuances of ever-changing weather patterns, picking up the subtle shifts in temperature, wind, and humidity, the music of this album acts as a sonic observer. Perched on the borderlands between music and atmosphere, it tunes into the subtle fluctuations of sound, weaving together ethereal textures and sonic landscapes that rise, drift and evolve, mirroring the rhythmic flow of the tides.
Heikki Lindgren: bowed lyre, overtone flutes
Mathias Grassow: 4 x Roland SP808-Ex, Behringer Crave, Ashun Hydrasynth, Roland Gaia, Clavia Nord Stage II Ex, Waldorf Streichfett, Dreadbox Nymphes, 2 x Alesis Quadraverb, Soma Cosmos, Behringer Edison, Ultrafex, Denoiser……

Mathias Grassow:

Dear friends,

I hope You're all doing fine.

Well - over at YouTube's, where I started to be a little more active than I used to be at the beginning of this year (and elsewhere too, actually) things have slowed down again due to my current load of work at my daytime job and other obligations.
So, same old song - but still, I found the time to produce yet another long-form ambient video.


Again, used an older recording (that still may be new to quite a few people) and gave it new clothes:
The original version of "All The Pieces Fit Forever" had been recorded in 2007 and released on an album of the same titel.
The version used for this video was remastered, remixed and I added a lot of new elements, to create more depth and intrigue.

Hope You like it! Smile

Cheers & good wishes,

Isolation Sleep by Christian Fiesel (Cyclical Dreams)
Posted Fri Mar 15, 2024 3:01 am by CyclicalDreams
New releases Bandcamp: https://cyclicaldreams.bandcamp.com/album/isolation-sleep-cyd-0102

CD edition: https://Kunaki.com/Sales.asp?PID=PX00ZGGQ62&PP=1
All CD editions: https://kunaki.com/msales.asp?PublisherId=173070&pp=1

This album is about almost 15 years in the making. As no surprise, this is obviouly the longest time I ever worked on something at all. Even the title for this record set for about 11-12 years already. It's not a stretch to state, there where hundreds of tracks used, re-edited, remixed, deleted or re-combined of this time. Almost ANY synthesizer I ever got my hands on was used somewhere deep in the mix. Tons of samples and electronically created noises are buried in the tracks somewhere. So no fancy list of instruments here.
Isolation Sleep is about a virtual trip to a distant star which goes not as planned but finally finds its goal. The passengers are isolated from the events and disasters by the cryosleep all the time and find themselves on an alien planet at the end of the journey.
I don't know, if this is my "best album" or "most ambitious" or "best sounding". It's simply a very intense and dark album.
