“Moth Wings” on Dark Room Beats

Hi All,

Out here in Northern California I’m getting ready to brave the heat in Portugal for the upcoming Boom Festival, at the end of August. In the meantime, a piece of mine came out on a compilation from Israel’s Aleph Zero label. The album is called Dark Room Beats, and the piece is called Moth Wings. For those who saw me in concert this springtime, I played this piece a few times as an encore. The entire album flows in a chillout vein, with world music inclusions and some interesting non-cliché production.

…and here’s a very generous review from the Morpheus Music site:
“This latest compilation from the excellent Aleph Zero label pulls together some of the most cutting edge sounds in the world of drifting, glitch infested downtempo currently advancing over the horizon. The music ranges from intensely beautiful and dreamy to somewhat disconcerting and alien.”

“Dark Room Beats is an album full of brooding low-light atmosphere where periodic surges of warmth course through the night shadows and luminous colours twinkle and glow. The name is well chosen – this is certainly one for enjoying with a good sound system in a darkened room – or maybe for creating your own relaxing, dusky mindscape elsewhere during your day. Full of feeling, with an unhurried approach and ample room given over to building up mood and ambience. ”

“Aleph Zero compilations are always something of a delight. [..] The label is clearly intent on setting the standard for others to follow with this collection, Shahar and Shulman having selected thirteen pieces of visionary ambient glitch-chill that are of amazing quality and gratifying consonance. ”

“This is a high quality release that the more discerning listener will appreciate.”
