Elintseeker – Geography Of The Heart
We could do with getting some more posts up really, mainly since we’ve so much good music to talk about this year! To try and ensure that more posts go up, I’ll have to hold back on the talking and hope that you’ll come to your own conclusion as you hit play.
Our constant search for fine music has meant that as usual the net has been cast wide and in this post, we give our full endorsement to Elintseeker’s new album ‘Geography Of The Heart’. This is an utterly stunning album of electro-acoustic Ambient music, recommended if you enjoy Ambient work with a more musical focus.
“Geography Of The Heart is a collection of memories and feelings as well as a celebration of being lost in the form of 12 songs, composed and recorded as a musical journal instead of a handwritten one during various travels between 2011 to 2013. From the ancient castle at the edge of Krakow’s old town to the peaceful and quiet cemetery in Copenhagen to the back lanes of the Tokyo suburbs, the bones of these songs were composed in a stream of consciousness while in situ and were recorded as soon as possible before they are completely forgotten, to be expanded on the return home. This album marks a departure in style from previous works with a stronger focus on melody, musicianship, back-to-basics song crafting and the spirit of improvisation. A pop or folk inspired album if you will, but with an ambient heart.
This album features guest collaborators from all over the world. Among them, American singer-songwriter Jessica Bailiff, Macedonian singer Genoveva Kachurkova, Japanese musicians Ferri, Shunichiro Fujimoto (Fjordne) and Junya Yanagidaira (ironomi), Singaporean sound artist Darren Ng (sonicbrat) and musician Victor Low (Affixen), legendary American shoegaze guitarist Scott Cortez (lovesliescrushing), Australian experimental musician Charlie Sage (Year Of The Ox, Hessien) and
well-known French jazz guitarist and improviser Noël Akchoté. With their talents, the songs were expanded way beyond their original vision. All compositions were written, mixed and produced by elintseeker. “
