SOLO ANDATA: BAND OF THE WEEK @ THE SILENT BALLET September 10, 2009

12k is having another strong year with stellar releases from Giuseppe Ielasi, Lawrence English, Pillowdiver, Seaworthy, and Tomasz Bednarczyk — now add Solo Andata to that list. The Australian duo is by no means new to the music scene; Paul Fiocco and Kane Ilkin debuted in 2006 with Fyris Swan on Hefty Records before moving over to 12k with a live album including Taylor Deupree and Seaworthy. The two labels appear to have quite different philosophies, so such a move is not necessarily a guaranteed success, but Fiocco and Ilkin make it look easy. Solo Andata embraces the experimental nature of 12k and ventures into the sparse compositions littered with acoustic instrumentation and lots and lots of space, a key concept fueling the label. Whereas many of their new label mates create electronic-based music, Solo Andata avoid this limitation and instead head for the more traditional instrumentation along the lines of piano, violin, cello, guitar, and miscellaneous homemade tools. The end effect is a base of gentle ambience embedded with brief clustering of notes, providing all the ingredients for a wonderful album and inviting the listener’s imagination to fill in the blanks and make it a personal triumph.

SEPTEMBER 1
Pound Ridge, NY, 11:41pm

the calming sound of my Apple Time Machine backup drive, keeping my data safe (for the time being) in its crunchy warmth.. not unlike a crackling fire.

SEPTEMBER 2
Pound Ridge, NY, 9:10pm

a loop using a slide whistle into the Eventide Eclipse. sort of lonely and windswept, like maybe on the bow of a small ship at night lost in an approaching ocean storm.

SEPTEMBER 3
Pound Ridge, NY, around 7pm

prepping the kitchen for cooking dinner. stove on, some produce out, olive oil, working on the knife blade… was grilling some salmon that had been marinading all day.

SEPTEMBER 4
Stamford, CT, 12:50pm

a patch of tallish bamboo trees outside the Bartlett Arboretum. they weren’t tall enough or wide enough to get a more hollow sound, but, good texture anyway.

SEAWORTHY “1897” MUSIQUE MACHINE REVIEW September 4, 2009

as always, check out the complete “1897” review archive.

1897 is the second full length album by Australian electro/ acoustic mood setters Seaworthy on the great ambient/ electronic meets acoustic label 12k. It finds the three piece weaving a darker, starker and more melancholy work than their first album for the label the excellent Map in Hand.

The bands sound is still focusing in on a mixture of: bluesy guitar hovers and twangs, folky richness and slumbering drone emission with subtle electronics elements and treatments. But overall there’s a bleaker, more sombre and drifting mood present here with at times an almost dark ambient/ organic industrial air arising, yet it never gets too dark with a richly harmonic in place and the bands distinct sound still present- it’s just darkening the sonic waters somewhat. Part of the reason for the albums tone has to do with were it was recorded; which was in and around a 100 year old decommissioned ammunitions bunker in Newington, Australia. The Bunker was Constructed in 1897(hence the albums name) to store gunpowder, with the bunker been use by the Australian navy up until recently. The band utilize the natural reverb and tones of the bunkers rooms to record guitar and electronic elements, as well as mixing in field recordings from inside the buildings, and the surrounding wetland and forest environments. But the field recording never overrun or take over the bands mainly drifting and shimmering guitar based sound; they just add rewarding and atmospric detail to the albums rich harmonic yet darkly tinged unfold.

1897 is more album based compared to Map In hand with sonic and musically themes repeating themselves here and there; along with the wonderful mood the band conjur up through-out the album which is best described as summer past melancholy meet nostalgic harmonic warmth. It’s a haunting, harmonic and sadly soothing album that really mangers to get under ones skin over replays
