Fosel- The Jade Furnace Remixes [treetrunk 142]

Some time back Thomas of Treetrunk asked artist Fosel if he would be willing to tackle Jade Furnace 2. Jade Furnace 2 was a release on Treetrunk by K.M. Krebs, that was also an open invitation for remixing. People were invited to listen to the pieces forwards, backwards, on shuffle, or to use them as components in their own remixes. It was this approach that Thomas urged Fosel to take.

And how pleasing are the results! Fosel takes the molten material from Jade Furnace 2 and transmogrifies it into his own style, with sounds covering the spectrum of pitch and texture, and intriguing snippets of melody interspersed.

Thomas of Treetrunk definitely loves what Fosel has done here– why not take the journey yourself?

Kirill Platonkin- Distant Observer [treetrunk 141]

This is a nice space ambient/drone release by artist Kirill Platonkin. Kirill Platonkin comes from the far East of Russia. Where he lives, ambient music is not as popular, but as is obvious from the music, he both understands and appreciates it himself. We at Treetrunk really enjoy Kirill Platonkin’s e.p., and we hope you will, as well.

Sohnn- Organs Of The Earth [treetrunk 140]

“‘Organs of The Earth’ is inspired by an imagined world of abstract plant-like forms emphasizing a deep fascination of its aesthetics and significance to human beings. The album can be viewed as an extended representation of the feeling of being consumed by an intelligent natural force.”- Sohnn, 2011

Consistency Nature- Erosion Without Friction [treetrunk 136]

“We are a lapse of lucidity in the omnipresent constancy of the universe. As we observe infinitely finite & yet impossibly large space, we commit ourselves to the overall futile endeavor of continuing this lucidity for as long as possible. Life wishes only to sustain itself. In introverting this knowingness, in meditating on the patterns and stimuli that occurs within the broken imaginations of this self-aware state of substance, we may help ease the indefinite stemming of nature’s angry and lethargic tide for ourselves. Our feet may be lifted and the friction of erosion may be weakened.”– Dishdawash
