News and New Releases
The excellent debut collaboration between Devin Powers (SineRider) and Graham Marlowe, both of whom will be familiar to many of you from their previous releases on BFW and beyond.
We've been looking forward to this album at BFW for a while and it does not disappoint.
This is an album of real beauty. A wide range of sounds and styles blended seemlessly on a very interesting album. There are warped tapes, atmospheres, electronics and guitars creating delicate melodies and beautiful soundscapes.
The new longform ambient album from The Ambient Visitor, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites.
A continuous, 57 minute piece split into three parts.
The music is generative:
each note is played in a long loop, the length of each loop if different for each note, so although the music may seem to vary only slightly, it never quite repeats itself.
I decided, perhaps because this is the thirteenth album, to start off in a darker mood. However, the key changes from the minor to a brighter major around half way.
The tracks on this album (and albums to follow) is named after Apollo near-Earth asteroids, objects whose orbits cross that of Earth.
There are many hundreds of known Apollo asteroids, though only a few dozen have been named officially, so I may run out of names from this list as quickly as I did with TNOs.
Album In A Day volume 6 is now available to download.
On Saturday 25th May 2013, musicians from around the world each wrote and recorded a complete new song, from scratch in one day.
The next day, these songs were collected and put together as this album.
The day after that, the album was released as a free download!
There is a whole range of music - ambient, folk, glitchy electronica, indie and everything in between.
Remember, none of the music on this album existed before Saturday 25th May 2013.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this project - music, art and support.
Enjoy, the album. Share it with your friends in the knowledge that we will be doing this all over again in a few months!
Image To Sound 2: Earth
Burning Artist is the ambient/experimental sound artist alter ego of the Burning Artist(s) Sale. Work on this album started sometime late in 2010, when images of earth were used to create MIDI/musical elements for the two longer pieces. This is the type of geek stuff that Burning Artist thrives on. Another key element to the Burning Artist part of this album is the Marsynth Morris Box synth (Burning Artist(s) Sale edition). Again, more evidence of the high geek quotient that Burning Artist revels in.
Burnt Emeralds is an ongoing collaboration between Emerald Adrift and Burning Artist/Killer Haven. Without the very great contribution of Emerald Adrift, this album would probably have never been released. Burning Artist is thankful for the masterful work on “a second glimpse.”
The wonderful new EP from Poland based producer Piotro.
A really chilled half hour of lush ambient electronica.
The fifth album by The Lovely Moon, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites, and the first to be released by BFW.
75 minutes of positive, relaxing ambient music.
Also available on CD from thelovelymoon.bandcamp.com
Post blues or post-soul would decree the English critic Simon Reynolds if he had the opportunity to listen to the album that is by editing AguasTónicas soon or better yet, witness the band live. As it is unlikely that this (that Reynolds will listen) happen in the short term, it is necessary to say a few things: the music of AguasTónicas has almost nothing to 'post' and a lot of 'pre'. It says nothing of the end of an era, but speaks of a time to come, in which some things are similar to before, and others will change our lives forever. In short: they are songs to accompany those who make the decision to change their lives. It is, perhaps, the soundtrack of an organic world, constructivist, utopian, in which the single thought is abolished and only serve to make soy patties. For now we have to settle with the music.
Amygdala - Pillars Of Creation
To celebrate our 4th birthday, we bring you our 200th release - the fantastic new album from Amygdala.
Pillars Of Creation is Amygdala's 6th release on BFW recordings and follows on from the previous five albums - a nice mix of ambient electronica with hints of psy trance and ambient dub.
Give your ears a treat and download it right now!
Eko_Fisk's seventh release on BFW recordings.
This is an astonishing piece of work. The quality, chilled electronic ambience of Eko_Fisk has reached another level here.
In his own words - Eno, Martin Hannett, in Paris, and it's freezing cold. This is probably some of the best I've done yet.
Yes! We are happy to announce that The Chain volume one is out now. An amazing album with artwork designed by Dan Northern tiltedsquare.com.
The Chain is a continuing collection of songs following on from one another.
A name was chosen at random from the list of musicians who wanted the take part. That musician (Spooky Child) had three weeks to write and record a completely new song.
The first song submitted was be passed along to the second musician who had three weeks to create a second song inspired by or using parts of the first song.
The second song was passed along to the third musician who created a third song inspired by or using parts of the second song.
And so on...
The only people to hear each song will be the person who creates it, the next person in the chain and 'the team' here at BFW recordings. To that end, we only publish a finished song once three more songs are complete - hence, now that 13 songs are finally complete, we are releasing the first 10 as The Chain volume 1.
The Chain is an ongoing project and we are still looking for musicians who can and want to take part. If you want to take part or have any questions, send us a message at email@example.com. Please mark your email 'The Chain' so we know you want to be involved.
