Editorial Reviews

Ben Lukas Boysen has been writing, producing and performing music since 2003, specializing in sound design and composition. With a series of highly regarded albums as hecq on hymen records, plus a busy schedule producing music for a number of high-profile advertising, film and gaming clients, he has firmly established himself as a forward-thinking electronic musician and sophisticated sound designer. The focus of his every project is to find an efficient and direct way to leave a strong emotional impact, whether it is the production of an album or the conception and completion of a commercial project. He invests a lot of thought and time into every single piece of work and therefore makes every production special rather than settling with something fast and convenient. He is determined that every score, commission, track, or remix should get the same amount of attention and detail. In short: moving away from music and sound as a product and perceive every project as a customizable and individual challenge. A number of companies like cartier, bmw, leica, greenpeace, lacoste or mtv have made use of this approach for their commercials, websites and general sound concepts. Furthermore ben also designed a 'live pack' for the widely recognized music software ableton live. Restive is not the first film ben boysen made the music for, but it is his first soundtrack to be independently released as an album. As on his previous works as hecq where he has already demonstrated his ability for cinematic sound design, this soundtrack works perfectly as a stand-alone release for those who are not familiar with the movie. With it's beautifully elaborate compositions carrying dense moods from light sadness to subliminal tension and disturbance, restive's music is strong enough to speak for itself and to create a motion picture in the listener's mind. With a basis of mighty sub basses and partial beats, dramatic orchestral ambience interweave with atmospheric synthesized pads and deep reverberation carrying a continuous imaginative suspense of something hiding right beneath the shadow of a thinly layered sonic veil. Listening to this perfect symbiosis of electronic soundscapes and acoustic sounds, you can draw a parallel between this release and hecq's 'night falls' album from 2008. Restive defines a journey through varied aural spaces interspersed with sounds and tempers beyond the listener's imagination.

If I still haven't covered Ben Lukas Boysen`s last album as Hecq, it is because I assumed that everyone has heard it, loved it, and rejoiced. I still feel like I need to do a proper write-up on Avenger (Hymen, 2011). But if eventually [and possibly permanently] I lag, do know, that it indeed made it onto Headphone Commute's Best of 2011 list (see Music For Synergizing The Synapse Of Ideas), and that I listen to it at least once a month - and that's actually a lot, considering I consume about a dozen new albums a week. My last.fm charts don't lie - Hecq is still at the top spot of overall plays. But I digress... It is with that initial thought in mind that I appoint myself to bring to your attention his latest magnum opus, perhaps because it is recorded under his real name, and may indeed be easier to overlook, even though it is released by Boysen's home label, the Lappersdorf (Germany) based Hymen Records.

You see, Restive is unlike anything Boysen has produced before. Well... almost... Besides the fact that it is an actual soundtrack to the original motion picture by Jeremiah Jones (Enemyhouse Films, 2011), Restive is an imaginary landscape of sonic trepidations and pensive insight into this wonderful composer's mind. Although Boysen has released a modern classical meets ambient album in the past, stripping away the digital onslaught of micro programmed beats (I'm talking about his Night Falls on Hymen in 2008, which should explain why I hesitated in pronouncing this a rarity before), Restive appears to be a more cohesive conceptual piece, as it unquestionably must be, given the fact that it's an intricately devised film score. This is, however, not the very first soundtrack that Boysen produced, but it is the first physically released as an album.

I am a longtime fan of Ben Lukas Boysen's work under his own name and the better-known Hecq, and this album is gorgeous. Fans of Hecq's earlier ambient work, like Night Falls, will appreciate this album's big, slow, desolate sounds. I haven't seen the film this was for, but I hope Boysen continues to receive soundtrack work, as Restive is an absolute triumph.
