Quiet Space — #71 — The Slowcraft of James Murray

James Murray is a composer specialising in minimal electronic and electroacoustic music. His recordings have been issued by respected labels worldwide since 2004 and often have strong conceptual themes inviting personal or emotional reflection. Our focus is on his most recent release, Landscape of Lovers. Romantic music can fall into saccharine, soppy, and sickly-sweet traps, but on this release Murray eschews and avoids these dangerous tropes, instead honing in on and finding the essence of love, and of what it means to love.

Quiet Space — #70 — The Licence To Interpret Dreams

‘The License to Interpret Dreams’, is an intensely focussed dreamworld produced by Antonymes aka Ian Hazeldine. his music emerges from the adjustments and erasures where music expresses nothing but itself, from the relationship between continuity and repetition rather than of contract and interplay. On top of that he is an absolute top bloke. Our feature album for this episode first became available in 2010; it didn’t really sound like it belonged in that year, at the time or now, too ancient seeming, too abstract, too intimate, too damned heart breaking! This edition features some stellar musicians reinterpreting Antonymes dreams. Essential.

1/2/3/4 — #74 — Outer Songs

I’m currently obsessively listening to GADADU’s album Outer Song. With a kaleidoscopic sense of time and texture, GADADU weaves odd-meter grooves, synth-spiked orchestral arrangements, and unorthodox song forms into a dreamy, soulful sound. As a big fan of Melbourne’s Tulalah, I have found a kindred spirit with this release. Stunning. As well more soulful grooves from Chelsea Wilson, Cookin’ With Three Burners abd Part Time.
