Le parole dell'amico blogger Yamanotedreams condividono in pieno il mio pensiero a proposito della label giapponese element perspective:"Superbe compilation, quintessence de la musique electronique japonaise actuelle. Ne cherche pas ailleurs, car c'est ici que ça se passe." A pochi mesi dall'eccellenteHope 3.0, ecco un'altra compilation che scatta una nitida immagine su ciò che è la musica giapponese odierna. Artisti che oramai incominciano ad essere familiari, come N-qia, con la loro sognante elettronica avanguardistica o SHOMOMOSE e Mitsuru Shimizu, superbi performer di particelle elettroniche, alchimisti minimalisti. Ma è il suono del pianoforte che caratterizza questa compilation, presente in molte delle composizioni qui presenti. Intensità, meditazione, un pacato dialogo con la propria anima...tutti aspetti di cui i musicisti giapponesi dimostrano di essere maestri con innata naturalezza. Tutti i brani mantengono alta la qualità di "Consciousness Dr." ed element perspective dimostra ancora una volta di nutrire con arte le proprie azioni, dalla scelta dell'artwork ai contenuti delle release fino alle aspettative che sa creare antecedentemente alle proprie uscite. Ricordandosi inoltre di ringraziare sempre gentilmente ogni singola persona che contribuisce alla divulgazione di questa splendida musica.

Saturday, April 20th is the anniversary of the 1910 premiere of Ravel's Ma Mère l'Oye in Paris, France. Ma Mère l'Oye: Cinq Pièces Enfantines (Mother Goose: Five Children's Pieces) was originally composed for two pianos, a duet for Mimi and Jean Godebski, ages 6 and 7. Later the same year, the work was transcribed for solo piano by Ravel's friend Jacques Charlot. In 1911, Ravel orchestrated the work for a full orchestra, and in 1912, he expanded it into a ballet. It was recently arranged for a string quartet, as well.
The five pieces of both the duet and the solo piano suites of Ma Mère l'Oye are:
1. Courtly Dance of Sleeping Beauty (Pavane de la belle au bois dormant)
2. Little Tom Thumb (Petit Poucet)
3. Little Ugly Girl, Empress of the Pagodas (Laideronnette, impératrice des pagodes)
4. Conversation of Beauty and the Beast (Les entretiens de la belle et de la bête)
5. The Fairy Garden (Le jardin féerique)

Oskar Schuster is a young composer located in Berlin, Germany. His songs without words evocate a fairytale-world, strange and surreal. Oskar’s soft, elegantly structured compositions evoke certain similarities with such artists as Yann Tiersen and Detektivbyrån, yet evolve into his own captivating soundscapes.

After a wildly successful kickstarter campaign, the folks at the Open Goldberg Variations project have finally released their recordings of Bach's famous 1741 composition. Recorded in the Teldex Studio in Berlin (whose client list reads like a who's who of classical conductors and orchestras), producer Anne-Marie Sylvestre beautifully captures pianist Kimiko Ishizaka's performance of Bach's masterpiece. It is not every day that someone puts so much time and effort into a classical recording only to turn around and offer it up to the public domain free of charge. In fact, according to the project's creators, this is the first fan-funded, open source, and completely free recording ever produced. The recording is accompanied by a newly revised edition of the score open peer-reviewed and put together by musescore.
The recording is licensed under Creative Commons Zero, which effectively allows the recording to be used by anyone, for anything, in any way. It's the most "open" license offered by Creative Commons and is designed to assist artists who wish to waive their creative rights and dedicate their works to the public domain.

Today's MP3 comes to us from Oneonta, New York where Buildings and Mountains have been pumping out some wonderfully atmospheric drone improvisations. With a haunting piano melody and a gloomy feedback/fieldrecording howl filling the cassette-tape void, "Fall Moon" is the perfect soundtrack to your weekend introspection. Thanks to owldirt, new to the FMA, for making this available!
