Yair Etziony: All three tracks were made in one week on a modular synthesizer when almost everyone around me seemed sick, depressed or just unhappy. During those days, it felt like everything was slowly fading away, luckily it didn't, things got back to normal. This is how spring in Berlin feels like.
Includes unlimited streaming of Metamorphosis
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
All music composed, performed and mixed by Yair Etziony at Tempelhofer Salon Studios, Berlin, Germany. Additional mixing on all tracks was done by Martin Maischein at the Kuzurura Studio, Berlin, Germany.
No matter what hat he wears; producer, composer, curator or label owner, Yair Etziony is one of driving forces in Israeli electronic music scene. Born in Petach Tiqwa,Israel, and now living in Berlin, Germany.
Always a trailblazer, he was one of first Israeli's to perform live with laptop on stage, and nowadays was one of the first to embrace the Eurorack modular standard.
Yair's music deals with surreal, dream-like situations, he fuses influences from modern composition, dub, techno and ambient to draw the listener to a different dimension of existence.
Over the years he released music in Germany, Canada, Great Britain and Japan. Since 2010 He is running the label False Industries, focusing on dark electronic releases.
It's getting near impossible to pick favourites from Jason Corder's expansive catalogue,( there are SO many gems!) - but this offering approaches the finest moments of our 20th+ century avantgarde- more akin to works like Part, Ligeti, Reich- we came up with the phrase "Chamber Ambient" just for this work - ( !! ) -a sonic experience not to be missed. -ss/tm/am editions vaché
What a great find. Subtle, but engaging compositions, each playing their own part, but extraordinair combined. Another example of the surprises you encounter when exploring french musicians....... PlayItLoud!
Divided between abrasive walls of sound and elusive vocal and organic elements, going from contemplative parts and reaching intense climaxes, the emotional dynamics in Light Loss transposes into sounds the ambivalence of our feelings, opposing our helplessness faced with the light's weakening before winter's solstice and the quietude brought by the cold and silent nights.
Unpredictable and very personal, Offthesky offers an aural journey to the sonic extremes, with a spectacular finale. Dotflac
