Conny Olivetti – “Probing the Sonic Heritage”

October 31, 2013 at 11:54 am

Conny Olivetti

The productive Conny Olivetti released his tenth album “Probing the Sonic Heritage” this Summer, and like with earlier albums I wonder over the change of scenes from album to album, the creativity and the details. I guess the title refers to his sources of inspiration, but even if I can sense some of them and note a direct reference here and there, it’s Conny’s own soundscape I enter.

And this time it feels dark, from the suggestively mysterious to the ominous to the direct frightening as in songs like “Die Hüter des Gesetzes” and “Room 13”. The filmic feeling is even more prominent this time, like if the songs are small films in themselves, constantly in movement and changing, enhanced by new details and voice samplings. An album that demands some attention from the listener and which certainly deserves it.

sink \ sink – “a lone cloudburst”

sink \ sink

sink \ sink is a project started by the musician Gareth Schott, hailing from New Zeeland. Planning the new album “a lone cloudburst” he asked Ylva Krantz, hailing from Stockholm, to become a part of the project, which resulted in Ylva supplying lyrics and vocals to the music, sometimes in English and sometimes in Swedish.

The music balances on the border between the pure ambient music and melodic songs. It’s calm and beautiful, dreamy, at times a bit spooky or suggestive where Ylva’s voice comes sweeping in  like a light breeze in an enchanted forest, creating movement. It’s an interesting and to a large part organic sound, which takes hold of me more and more each time I listen, like if I get stuck in cobweb.

Imi Fal

Imi Fal

Melodic ambient for daydreamers. That’s what Ingemar Holmlid calls the music he creates under the artist name Imi Fal. He says that he started writing these songs as a reaction to all the stress and press we live in, to be able to relax with the help of the music and maybe find a calmer, more creative state of mind. And relaxing it is; there is no other way to embrace this but to calm down and relax. He released the debut album in Spring, “Follow No Path”, from which you can hear two tracks here below, and on his Soundcloud-sida he’s frequently posting new songs.

Snakethread is a Swedish producer and DJ, whom I’m going to present a couple of tracks from today. Well, you can guess that it’s about electronica, mostly instrumental. It’s ambient and colourful, rather varied and imaginative with ambiences that ranges from the ominous to chill with an urban vibe. He’s continuously presenting new songs, which you can follow on his Soundcloud page. Here’s a taste:
