“Some Ambulance‘ should be the first port of call for those with even a passing interest in where electro-acoustic and ambient music is heading in 2009/10, while I can imagine the uninitiated finding lots to love too. There’s a strong STEVE REICH influence prevalent here, especially the skillful use of slide-rule repetition, particularly found on ‘The Blue Cathedral’ and ‘Etude IV‘. But other tracks take different routes, ‘Death of a Dream‘ paints a bleak MORRICONE-esque picture with its forlorn guitar and solemn atmosphere created using a vibrant tapestry of sounds as its backdrop. While ‘A Rural Place‘ contains a staggered synth-rythmn and discordant effects that reminds me of something THOM YORKE might come up with in his solo ventures. My favourite composition comes in the form of haunting opener ‘Handwriting (Part 1)‘ (and indeed it’s closing part which ends this release) mainly down to the fact I can detect a strong Labradford influence from the way it builds from its grainy beginnings into a vast melancholic dronescape flickered with static and tape hiss. The effect of the whole piece is somewhat gratifying and I can’t help but recall the first time I heard Nelson and co’s seminal ‘Praizision‘ I’ve found myself going back to this record time and time again. It’s endlessly listenable and it packs a surprise with each spin. A bit like Rudi Arapahoe’s 2008 record ‘Echoes From One To Another‘, Talvihorros’ release has come from nowhere and knocked me sideways. It is not an exaggeration to say this is one of my favourite records this year.”

about

Talvihorros Scotland, UK

Talvihorros is the work of Scotland based experimental composer Ben Chatwin. Working with primarily guitar and analogue electronics, he makes dense and dark ambient compositions that aspire to take in the beauty and chaos of the cosmos. Sonically ambitious, with a keen sense of melody always teetering on the edge of collapsing under its own weight. ... more
