The KrysaliSound news section, concerning any ideas, updates, releases coming soon…

The Forest Is Sleeping Within The Trees, original released by Scissor Tail Editions in 2015, is the third work of the Danish Paw Grabowski reissued by KrysaliSound with a new mastering sound.
Divided in six parts, piano and pump organ walk together in a sort of spiritual research and in a deep combination of human desolation, devotion and fragility. With his wide catalogue øjeRum confirms to be an artist with a rare sensibility. The Forest Is Sleeping Within The Trees is a stunning release for fans of William Basinski and all the minimalist genre.

Available in digital format and in KS Digifile from November 16, 2018

Dear all,
I’m really proud to announce my new album “Decays”, released by Time Release Sound and available in store from November 11. You will find the album in two different and amazing lines of handmade packaging. Below details and two songs…enjoy!

From TRS:
“Greetings friends! Once again the earth has circled the sun, and the fall season is upon us! As the days shorten, and the leaves fall, we are pleased to bring you this most appropriately seasonal release from Italian based musician, Francis M. Gri, entitled “Decays”. At times sounding like the soundtrack to a moody, somber Tarkovsky film, Gri has captured the din of the clatter and clang of life as it grows, and then rises in an uplifting anthemic glory to all that man has made. Darkly delicate…constantly decaying and yet reborn again…eternally…”

øjeRum est avant tout graphiste, mais il compose régulièrement depuis 2013. C’est justement en décembre 2013 que le Danois composa cet album, une de ses premières productions, initialement autoproduit, puis édité en 2015 par le label Cabin Floor Esoterica, et réédité donc début 2017 par KrysaliSound. Extrêmement productif depuis 2016, on peut retrouver son travail sur des labels tels que Eilean Rec.Midira Records ou encore Fluid Audio.

He Remembers There Were Gardens est un album simple, composé d’une pièce unique de 30mn. Cette durée est un peu imposée par un film célèbre, La Jetée de Chris Marker dont cette pièce se veut une bande son alternative. On est tout de suite captivé par cette musique qui se construit par de lents accords d’orgues, à la fois doux et lumineux, se prolongeant dans une résonance cristalline. On devine assez rapidement qu’il y aura assez peu de changement durant toute la durée de cette pièce dont les nappes évoquent facilement le va et vient des vagues sur la jetée.
On est parfois surpris par quelques bruitages au second plan, comme s’il s’agissait d’une captation live, dans une église, avec parfois le craquement du bois d’un banc.

La musique se fait toutefois assez variée, changeant régulièrement de tempo, restant scotché sur une même note répétée avec régularité, puis passant à une autre qui subira plus ou moins le même traitement, fluide et glissant vers une autre tonalité. On sera séduit par quelques irrégularités, l’impression de reprises et relances, comme des hésitations, un aspect imprévisible qui donne à cette musique une certaine chaleur.
On ne peut que se laisser bercer par cet album, tant par le choix des sonorités que par le tempo, comme une respiration quand, sur la fin, le jeu boucle sur deux notes, comme s’il s’agissait d’une inspiration et expiration qui ralentiront doucement sur les dernières minutes.

Simple et beau, une musique discrète, pure ambient donc, que l’on pourrait écouter en boucle, sans se lasser.

klās’tĭk “Night’s Highest Noon” is now available in store in digital format and digifile cd packaging.

“Night’s Highest Noon” is the debut of duo klās’tĭk based in Berlin/Warsaw. This full-length is the result of two years in studio recording where wordless vocals and drums communicate with each other looking for a new musical language. There is something ancestral in this concept that struck me immediately, something that transported me to the origin of the human being. However, on the other hand, thanks to the use of electronic elements, the architectures of these eight tracks look to the future in a perfect and complex whole.
Masaya Hijikata and Andrea Koch created a unique universe in which it is possible to feel a kaleidoscope of emotions that will hardly leave indifferent.

It’s a pleasure for me to introduce Andrea Koch and Masaya Hijikata and their duo-project in KrysaliSound.

Respectively based in Berlin and Warsaw, but with Italian origins the first and Japanese the second, it would have been impossible for them not to find in their music a sort of new language that melts all of their multicultural life experiences.

klās’tĭk is a spectacular new musical planet with a rich and complex DNA, such a multi-layer genre so hard to identify, that captures at the first listening. Music for minds with expanded boundaries….

Below is the excerpt of their debut album, to be released October 5.

KrysaliSound is pleased to introduce the first release of the season available from October, 5 in digital format and in elegant digifile packaging.

Dear all,
finally summer is close to the end and KrysaliSound is ready to prepare the first release for the season 2018/2019. I like to start every season with a brave strong album, something unexpected that break the rules.
Last year the album of the duo GALATIMOSCONI was the perfect opening for a rewarding season, this year I want to do a little step out from ambient and introduce the debut album of the Berlin/Warsaw based duo Klās’tĭk.
I love experimental music because is not a genre but a language where artists and musicians can communicate in different ways. Andrea Kock and Masaya Hijikata, voice and drum, sent me a work very different from the usual KSnd releases but so aligned to my idea of music language that I could not refuse this opportunity.
Every step “out from the circle” is a chance to expand the horizon and to improve more and more. I feel lucky every time I receive works like this, it’s a privilege for me when I can publish an album that I definitely would buy as listener!
Soon more details of this new release…

Ciao a tutti,
Finalmente l’estate è alle porte e KrysaliSound è pronta a preparare la prima release della stagione 2018/2019. Mi piace dare il via a ogni stagione con un album coraggioso e potente, qualcosa di inaspettato che esca dagli schemi.
Lo scorso anno l’album del duo GALATIMOSCONI è stato il perfetto inizio per una stagione gratificante, quest’anno invece voglio fare un passo fuori dall’ambient e presentare l’album di debutto del duo di Berlino/Varsavia Klās’tĭk.
Amo la musica sperimentale perché non è un genere ma un linguaggio in cui gli artisti possono comunicare in tantissimi modi differenti.
Andrea Koch e Masaya Hijikata, voce e batteria, hanno prodotto un lavoro diverso dalle classiche uscite KSnd ma cosi allineato con il mio linguaggio musicale che non ho potuto rifiutare questa opportunità.
Ogni passo “fuori dal cerchio” è un’occasione per espandere l’orizzonte e migliorare sempre di più. Mi sento fortunato ogni volta che ricevo album di questo tipo, ed è un privilegio per me poter pubblicare album che avrei sicuramente comprato da ascoltatore!
Presto altre news per la nuova uscita…

I’m so proud to announce that my work “Apart” is now available in store, released by the English label Whitelabrec. Thanks to Harry Towell for this opportunity…
