Brand new sonic impulses…
4 September 2018
New Zealand‘s experimental and heavily jazz and world music influenced ensemble ORCHESTRA OF SPHERES started its venturesome cruises way back in 2009. They are about to release their fourth album, a double one, for Fire Records, entitled MIRROR.
” ‘Mirror’ is an exploration of energies and atmospheres, from intense futuristic funk and
sonic tape assemblages to windswept reflections from a far-flung corner of the world. It combines Orchestra of Spheres’ ecstatic rhythmic power and ritualistic vocals with an
expanded orchestral palette including bassoon, harp, viola, bass clarinet, soprano sax,
flute and bowed ektars…” says the record label in a press statement.
Ahead of Mirror‘s release here’s the first new song. Named after and inspired by the
late Tuareg musician KOUDEDE who – unfortunately, died in a car accident six years ago – the track sounds and feels like an otherworldly sonic journey, like a transcendent and spiritual trip, like a trance-like musical odyssey. Its repetitive groove works hypnotic,
its sax play is just amazing. Experience the compelling excursion right here…
