Description:

‘On the Echoing Green’ is an elegant work of shimmering sound, rendered by eternal electric romantic Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Conceived as an experiment in collaboration, ‘On the Echoing Green’ is eight rapturous and melodic slow dives of swirling guitar, bass, synthesizer, piano, and drum machines, accented by heavenly vocal arcs from Argentinian musician Sobrenadar and contributions from Alexis Georgopoulous and Byron Westbrook. This is music of growth and grandeur, of ascent and exploration; in tune with the beauty of sound and the harmony of light.

Description:

Craig Leon’s Atlas Ralisations presents Frozen Refrains, the new album by French electronic artist Brangre Maximin. It combines macroscopic textures and layers of vocals with interrupted loops, electronic signals and fragmented sequences, all generated in real time. The material is both an object of contemplation and a space in which to explore. Her manipulations reveal latent melodies within isolated sounds through a process of accumulation and contextualization, tempered with humor and lyricism.

Description:

Electronic composer/musician Laurel Halo is influenced by the sounds of Detroit, London, and Berlin. A classically trained musician, she learned to play piano, guitar, and violin while growing up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Halo began composing when she was 19, drawing from the sounds she heard at Detroit dance parties, her time in free jazz ensembles, and her stint as a free-form DJ at the University of Michigan’s radio station WCBN as well as classes in classical theory. She released several EPs from 2006 to 2009, including The Future Fruit and 2009’s Ambrosia. After moving to New York, she issued 2010’s King Felix EP, which was released by Hippos in Tanks — also home to GAMES, Sun Araw, and Oneohtrix Point Never — and inspired by Philip K. Dick’s novel VALIS. The Hour Logic EP, a collaboration with GAMES, appeared in 2011. Her breakthrough album and Hyperdub debut, the disquieting Quarantine, arrived a few months later and was named album of the year by The Wire.

Halo moved to Berlin in 2013 and returned with two releases, the techno EP Behind the Green Door and the full-length Chance of Rain, which combined jazz-inspired experimental techno and musique concrte tracks. Halo also maintained her passion for radio, hosting a monthly broadcast on Berlin Community Radio and making guest mixes for WNYC, BBC Radio, and Rinse.FM. Halo moved to Honest Jon’s for 2015’s In Situ, a double EP of more introverted — but still experimental — dubwise tracks. That year, she also worked with Julia Holter, Rashad Becker, NHK’Koyxen, and others as part of Terepa, whose self-titled EP featured the results of long-distance recording sessions where the artists avoided communicating with each other outside of any telepathic capabilities they might have. Halo also contributed a version of Karen Dalton’s “Blue Notion” to Remembering Mountains, a collection of interpretations of the folk icon’s lost lyrics.

In 2016, a collaboration between Halo and virtual pop star Hatsune Miku debuted at Berlin’s HKW and London’s Barbican. The following year, Halo released Dust, her third Hyperdub album. Unlike her first two albums for the label, it wasn’t made in solitude. Recorded during a two-year period at Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) in Troy, New York, it featured contributions from several instrumentalists and vocalists, including Holter and Lafawndah. ~ Heather Phares
