Svarte Greiner: Black Tie (Miasmah 2013)
Svarte Greiner (Erik Skodvin) er ute med "Black Tie" på Miasmah (2012).
Det er fortsatt mørk, nifs og vakker ambient, fordelt på to lengre spor ("Black Tie" og "White Noise"). Musikken er opprinnelig komponert for en installasjon laget av kunstneren Marit Følstad.
Helt fenomenalt igjen!
Sånn beskriver de musikken borte hos Miasmah:
'Black Tie' was the piece which ended up being used in the installation itself, and is the closest to Skodvin's established sound as it stops time around its creaking cello, plucked strings and whispering ambience. Subtle and slow, the track blooms into a skeletal cloud of radio static and distortion before sinking back down to earth on those familiar moaning strings.
With 'White Noise' however Skodvin takes us on a different journey, allowing panoramic synthesizer drones to take control while Middle Eastern strings chime in the distance. Transcendent and disarming, Skodvin manages to connect the dots between Biosphere, Thomas Koner and of course Deaf Center and still emerge with something fresh and unexpected. More than simply an accompanying work to aninstallation, 'Black Tie' is a crucial new chapter in the Svarte Greiner evolution, and one that should give a few clues as to what might come next.
