Lawrence Casserley & Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg: Mouth Wind

Read "Mouth Wind" reviewed by John Eyles

Recorded in May, 2010 at Lawrence Casserley's studio in the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire, Mouth Wind is a happy pairing of Casserley's signal processing with the idiosyncratic vocals of Belgium's Jean-Michel van Schouwburg, a pairing which benefits both of them greatly. The duo format suits each of the two in a different way; in larger groupings such ...

Sainkho Namtchylak - Nick Sudnick: Not Quite Songs

Read "Not Quite Songs" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Nel 1990 la Chant du Monde francese pubblicò un incredibilmente interessante cofanetto intitolato “Voyage en U.R.S.S." che in dieci dischi rigorosamente dedicati ognuno alle grandi regioni etniche dello sterminato territorio russo, affrontava per la prima volta il tema dei suoni e delle proto-musicologie di un vasto continente sonoro certamente unico. Fra le spire di quel lavoro, apparvero per la prima ...

Sainkho Namchylak: Tea Opera

Read "Tea Opera" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Per comprendere bene questo disco, per gustare affondo i suoi aromi bisognerebbe astrarsi dal proprio mondo per un'oretta all'incirca. Diversamente, non lo si capirebbe affatto. Bisogna lasciare andare tutti i rumori che ci circondano, zittire i telefonini che ci assillano e i problemi che ci attanagliano. Poi, basterebbe guardare in faccia Sainkho Namchylak e ascoltare la sua diafana ...

Sainkho Namchylak / Jarrod Cagwin: In Trance

Read "In Trance" reviewed by John Eyles

This album is well named. At the mundane level, its title derives from the fact that it was recorded live at the “In Trance" festival in Vienna, in October 2006. But it also contains music able to induce a trance like state, literally, to entrance. The music was inspired by, and is dedicated to, the great ...

Sainkho Namchylak: da Tuva all'etno-pop passando per l'improvvisazione

Read "Sainkho Namchylak: da Tuva all'etno-pop passando per l'improvvisazione" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Luminosa, profonda, al di fuori del ...

Sainkho Namchylak & Roy Carroll: Tuva-Irish Project

Read "Tuva-Irish Project" reviewed by John Eyles

If the collaboration between a Tuvan throat singer and an Irish laptop-ist sounds an unlikely combination, the end results fully justify the experiment; remarkably, the pairing works perfectly. The music here was developed over two years as Sainkho Namchylak and Roy Carroll explored ways to blend their music together in an improvised context.
