NEW RELEASE: Ember Music Chain Album

Ember Music Chain Album

We are very happy to announce the release of the Ember Music Chain Album. The album is available now via Bandcamp !

This album started with an idea. Give an artist some random samples to use in an original track. Samples are then taken from the first track and given to the second artist to use. Samples from the second track are given to the third artist… on and on down the chain. The artists were not told whose samples they received nor to whom their samples would go. The artists were also sent an image as inspiration.

The results are quite astounding.

Credits:
Tracks composed, performed and mixed by the respective artists.
Mastered by Bill Bendrot.
Album art/design by Kurt Lorenz.
Chain album logo concept by Scott Brown.
Album concept by Daniel J. Davis.

Release date: 14 April 2014

ALbum Review: TANGRAM: REPOSITORY [002] – BY CHRIS ROMANS, HEAR THE INDIE

TangramRepository2

Check out this fabulous review of Tangram’s Repository [002] by Chris Romans at Hear the Indie

Tangram is the solo project of artist Péter Fabók  who dabbles in an array of electronic, chill out styles of song. The music is almost entirely ambient, but not in a boring, sleep inducing way. Rather, it features some tight, almost orchestral, compositions with captivating synthetic tones and melodies…. Repository [002] is an exemplary album from this artist, and worth taking a look at if your into the sounds of space and ambiance.

New Release: “Kyma” by Slowly We Falter

SWF-Kyma Cover

We are happy to announce our latest official release “Kyma” by Slowly We Falter. Kyma is a 4-track EP created created using NOD-E, a wonderful instrument made by Antonio Blanca. The sounds you hear are randomly generated patterns created inside Reaktor (modular synthesis software) using various instruments connected to NOD-E.

This is the sound of machines at play.

 

Slowly We Falter is a side project started by Scott Brown (Fake Empire) to delve into the experimental side of electronic music and sound design. It is also an opportunity for him to explore creative limitation, restricting the instruments or software used for each project to inspire creative problem solving and a more minimalist approach. Each Slowly We Falter EP will be created within a set of limitations to see how far Scott can push himself musically and also to deepen his understanding of the equipment he is working with.

3 New Artists Join Ember Music: Robert Farrugia, Slowly We Falter & Via Voltage

We are very happy to announce the addition of 3 amazing artists to the Ember Music family, Robert Farrugia, Slowly We Falter and Via Voltage.

Robert Farrugia

Robert Farrugia (born, 30th November 1994) is a Maltese musician, playing the piano/keyboard as his main instrument.  At an early age Robert started piano and music theory lessons focusing mainly on classical music.  Besides being a full-time university student, Robert still studies music in his free time, and recently he graduated with a Diploma in Music Theory (London College of Music). Farrugia is a self taught-guitarist, with a certain minimalist approach when it comes to composing/ performing.
Robert  is an Ambient/ Experimental/ Neo-classical artist from Malta, Europe. His work is mainly influenced on the styles of Hammock, Sigur Rós, Stars of the Lid and Brian Eno . His works are based mainly on vast Soundscapes integrated with piano tracks and to a certain extent, voice-over samples.
All of Robert material is completely home recorded. One can see that a minimalistic approach in his music is certainly prominent, ultimately creating these rather soothing and extensive soundscapes.
Robert also is the guitarist of Maltese post-rock band ‘ Shouting at Echoes’

“I always think that the best way to frustrate an artist is to give him absolute freedom. If you want to give artists some support, make rules about what they can’t do.”
– Peter Gabriel

Each Slowly We Falter EP will be created within a set of limitations to see how far I can push myself musically and also to deepen my understanding of the equipment I am working with.

The result will be released as an EP containing 4 songs that can be purchased via bandcamp.

Via Voltage

 

Retro-Futuristic Synth-Pop, Via Voltage creates inventive art that you can dance to. This is the newest venture by the prolific husband and wife duo J.D. and Natalie Osborn.

What really makes Via Voltage unique is their remarkable use of the duet. Counter-melodies, harmonies, and interwoven melodic conversations glimmer across the stereo spectrum. Feeling an absense of great synth-pop music born out of the 80’s they decided to give it new life and in a modern way.

Not satisfied with bumper-slogan religious songs their lyrics often reflect a deep spirituality that’s conveyed intelligently and intellectually. They sing about love, life, science and science-fiction.

The Osborns have composed original musical scores for the film The Preacher’s Daughter, a promotional video for TEDx Houston, and several radio PSA’s for the Houston Area Women’s Center. They were also featured on a tribute album to outsider artist Jandek (along with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and more).
