Ludwig Berger ~ Cuyo

Fresh from the success of last year’s Melting Landscapes, Ludwig Berger has had an extremely active 2019, starting a new label while releasing three recordings of his own.  Cuyo is the one that won our hearts.  A few years back it won Miso Music’s

Willem Sannen ~ Plots

In Dutch, plots means “suddenly or unexpectedly.”  Willem Sannen‘s album of the same name seeks to “celebrate the passing of time” through specific sounds, some whose meanings are obvious and others whose relevance is obscured. Take a moment to consider what the

Audio Obscura ~ Gathering Silence

We love the idea of a field recordist wandering around the countryside, recording the sounds of old and long-abandoned churches.  The album begins with a haiku from Ian Joyce: Microphone in hand, I sit inside the old church, Gathering silence.
