Description

Title: Chains Of Being
Artist: Leimer, K. / Barreca, Marc
Label: Abstrakce Records
Product Type: VINYL LP
UPC: 5055869583374
Genre: Electronic

A conceptual and contemporary approach to early music, exploring it's ambiences, timbres and feelings. Delicate experimentation with sound textures where different white noise tones can meet the strings from a viola da gamba. A cinematic work, very touching and emotional. Almost mystic, spiritual ambient. K. Leimer and Marc Barreca are two American synth/multi-instrumental musicians that have been active since late '70s. They have some previous collaborations released in Leimer's imprint Palace Of Music. Presented in a very careful edition, the record comes packed in a folder printed in letterpress with wood and lead types. Six letterpress cards - one per track - are also included, contextualizing the artists' references used as an inspiration for their compositions. "These three pieces spring from a love of early music, specifically the works of Sainte-Colombe, Marin Marais, and John Dowland. Each of these composers ? their lives spanning a period of great musical innovation and change from 1563 to 1728 - is represented by a track included here. While there are no direct quotations present from any of their pieces there is a now familiar reliance on timbre and even on drone, elements that flourished in the often slowly-paced and harmonically narrow style of early music. Those stylistic elements have been taken up today, deliberately or not, by ambient, dark ambient, post-ambient, and slow music artists. In atmosphere early music often evokes a melancholic - even elegiac - sensibility appropriate to the present time." -K. Leimer"These three tracks were inspired by the shadows, streams of sunlight, muted colors and peaceful interior ambience of Spanish cathedrals. Calm and mystery combined." -Marc Barreca
