WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY:
We’re delighted to announce the release of Night Gestalt's new album "Sudden Rituals Vol. 1" on February 27th, Preceded by 3 singles on the 6th, 13th and 20th February.
In the words of Olof Cornéer the composer/producer behind Night Gestalt:
‘With this album I had a very simple idea, what happens if you mix A with B? I wanted to be the mad scientist and in order to do that I had to let other people in on the creation of the music.
Some of these rituals took place in my studio in Stockholm, some over the internet. It was also a way for me to approach people I have admired for a long time. As a composer/musician/producer it’s really interesting to chat about music with people you think are doing interesting stuff. But to make music together with them is even better. Hopefully that’s how this album sounds in the end too. Playful, welcoming and inclusive. But also dark and psychedelic.'
The creation process started with a collaboration of deep bleeps (from Night Gestalt) and Swedish folk violin from Lisa Rydberg and, as the album progressed, waves of textured synth and strings, ambient brass, acid dub and a collaboration with Persian Setar master Behdad Babaei all underpinned by synth driven bleeps and patterns.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS
