Editorial Reviews

2010 release from British experimental composer Ben Chatwin, who explores the possibilities of the guitar. His compositions venture into the fields of ambient, experimental, drone, post-rock and folk but dont fall into the cliches associated with any of these genres.

1. A Continual Echo of the Sound of Loss, Pt. I
2. A Continual Echo of the Sound of Loss, Pt. II
3. Thoughts of Violence
4. And Then They Walked Into the Sea

After listening to Ben Chatwin's third full length album as Talvihorros a few times in different surroundings, and in preparation for this review, I decide to put my headphones on, for a more intimate experience. For Music in Four Movements, released by hibernate in 2010, this London-based experimental musician explores the soundscaping possibilities of his guitar, the output of which is fed through various effect pedals and recorded using untried techniques on vintage equipment. "Both acoustic and electric guitars are layered with organ, synthesizer, mandolin, radio frequencies and various percussion instruments to create dense collages of sound, sometimes melodic, sometimes challenging but always captivating." During the four atmospheric tracks, Chatwin explores longer time frames, allowing for each sound to evolve and unfold, creating his "most ambient" work to date. At the center of the album, with titles like "A Continual Echo of the Sound of Loss", "Thoughts of Violence", and finally "And Then They Walked Into the Sea" is a dark theme of suicide. Yet it is not Chatwin's personal thoughts that we should be concerned with here, but rather the reasons why anyone would choose to end their own life. Chatwin became particularly interested in "reading stories about people who drowned themselves in rivers or the sea", and this visual image became a strong influence on the music behind the album. And if this message suggests a somber affair, the music speaks the same without the words... Pick up this album, along with a free track, Solo Guitar Improvisation II on Talvihorros Bandcamp.
