You would be hard pressed to find an ambient composer/musician out there with a more clearly defined minimalist aesthetic than Baltimore-based M. Ostermeier.  He describes his compositions as often featuring “skeletal piano melodies that are augmented with electronics, acoustic recordings, and occasionally guitar”. True to that aesthetic, his most recent work draws inspiration from simple and elegant structures found in both the seen and unseen world, a propensity which perhaps has its origins in his background as a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering.

In the case of Still, released on his own Tench label last year, the inspiration was architecture, a musical echo of the clean and spacious designs of the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright or Frank Gehry.  On his latest, about to be released by Home Normal, it is the marvelously lightweight and compact natural engineering of the humble bird.

    …amongst the gorgeous little melodies at play here, there is a careful depth of sound design from a variety of found sounds and field recordings…It is just the kind of album we love around these parts: namely, a work that takes its time to develop as it sees fit, without any need to rush to its restrained conclusion. – Ian Hawgood

Marc Ostermeier ProfileIndeed this collection of 13 songs and sketches has a real integrity of style and purpose throughout effectively creating a miniaturized world for the listener to inhabit, a sonic menagerie of rustling creatures that flit and skitter about. It comes across as a sort of musical origami and is equally enchanting. The piano lines themselves are exquisite, straddling modern classical and jazz motifs in a way that should appeal to fans of either genre while also pleasing the ambient music crowd who will appreciate the sound design, stillness and abstraction that permeates the entire captivating journey.

An added bonus is the appearance of Christoph Berg (aka Field Rotation) on the opening pair of tracks. He adds a pleasantly surprising element of additional beauty in just the right measure for this particular album, but it makes for a tantalizing prospect should the artists consider expanding this partnership in the future.

Dictamen

Creo que sería labor de los Ministerios de Cultura de cada país difundir la cultura musical y facilitar su acceso sin cortapisas.
Naturalmente queda a criterio de cada cual que, una vez escuchado, pueda adquirirlo en su tienda habitual, supuesto válido sólo para un reducido número de discos, ya que muchos de ellos no están en los circuitos comerciales convencionales y acceder a su compra en algunos casos será harto difícil cuando no imposible.
En esta página no hay finalidad económica alguna. Única y exclusivamente el deseo de ayudar a que disfrutes con algo tan maravilloso como es la música.
Mi gratitud a los autores que nos hacen disfrutar de sus creaciones y también a todos aquellos que permiten que llegue a nosotros, facilitando que podamos ampliar nuestra cultura y sensibilidad, constituyendose así en un extraordinario regalo.

La Música


La música es el corazón de la vida. Por ella habla el amor; sin ella no hay bien posible y con ella todo es hermoso.
La música puede dar nombre a lo innombrable y comunicar lo desconocido.
La música es sinónimo de libertad, de tocar lo que quieras y como quieras, siempre que sea bueno y tenga pasión, que la música sea el alimento del amor.
