Singular & Loljud – Jord (Feed Me Rework)


In Jord (Feed me Rework) – Singular & Loljud’s first ever collaboration – Loljud’s emotive and beautifully subdued ‘Feed me’ is transformed into a dirty punch of raw, pounding energy. An ephemeral piano figure leads to an expanding space where Loljud’s distinctive voice – distant, then close – is layered with Singular’s distorted beats and streaming electronics.

Jord (Feed me Rework) is the third in a series of Singular singles released throughout autumn and winter via Lamour Records. Continue reading

Mikael Strömberg – Riposte Erik Satie (Catterfly/Slim Vic)


Riposte Erik Satie, a newly written piece by Mikael Strömberg, is a reinterpretation of the idea behind Erik Saties Vexations (“harassment”). “Riposte” means response, in response, attack – as a response to Satie and as a silent attack over time. Saties Vexations is considered one of the longest pieces of music in history. A performance lasts 14 or 28 hours, depending on how the composer’s notes are interpreted. And yet the piece consists of only three lines, all of which are variations on the same theme. The considerable length is partly due to the slow tempo, but above all it comes from a comment from the composer that suggests that the piece should be repeated 840 times. Continue reading

Ljudvägg – Transformation

The album ‘Transformation’ challenges the boundaries of human and machine, the physical and the artificial, the feasible and the impossible. The result is a thoughtful and true emotional storm where the piano forms the basis for an opposite pole between sound and playing technique. When the sound is real, it is played with inhuman technology. When played by hand, the sound moves outside the spectrum of the physical piano. What role does “lying” play for the listener?
