New Aquatic Music from Barcelona's Selva De Mar

Barcelona's Selva de Mar formed as a street duo in 2006, sculpting "aquatic music" from the wooden timbres of the cello blended with the pitched steel percussive frequencies of the hang.

"Música Para Planchar" is a track from their captivating self-titled debut. Their second album, Olas Invisibles, was recorded in a cathedral with guests like the Swedish singer Ewa Wikstrom and African artist Mû (listen to "Gulab Jeman" below). Their third album, Club Eden (listen: "Walking & Talking"), introduced electronic signal processing as they continue to refine their enchanting sound.

The duo is currently raising support for a fourth album that will introduce guest musicians from Spain, Israel, Guinea Bissau, Mexico, Argentina and USA. As one of the many folks who've enjoyed Selva de Mar's previous three releases for free courtesy of the artist here at the FMA, I'm proud to support their next album. This is one of the many projects curated by the FMA on our Kickstarter page.

MP3 of the Day: Aaron Ximm, "Idle Hands"

Aaron Ximm's work as Quiet American showcases an extreme attention to the audible environment with a massive collection of over 90 hours of field recordings available for free download under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. With many more unreleased recordings, these sounds follow Aaron's travels around Vietnam, Fiji, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Nepal.

This release sees Ximm going in a slightly different direction - an album of instrumental pieces played on the Hang, an instrument similiar to a steel drum, made from two sheets of pitched steel. The sound is ethereal and meditative, a unique and fitting addition to his cannon of recordings.
