5.0 out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review July 4, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
The truth is, I've been meaning to review an album from Berlin's Karaoke Kalk for quite some time now. And it's not only because some of my favorite artists found a home on this label, like Hauschka for his debut Substantial (2004), Senking for a self-titled debut Senking (1998), and Dakota Suite for The End Of Trying (2009) and their amazing collection of remix artists for The Night Just Keeps Coming In (2010)... but because all of the unmentioned artists in its roster deserve to be heard. So it wasn't long before I couldn't resist talking about this amazing label any longer. Especially now that they signed a long time favorite of mine, Italian experimental musician, Emanuele Errante. Errante's music, first introduced to me through Apegenine's Migrations (2007), and then Somnia's Humus (2008), stands to be in its own sub-category of minimal ambient and experimental modern classical compositions. Lo-fi noises, scratching on the strings of a gently weeping guitar, clicking field recordings, and cascading ambient atmospheres, penetrate through the walls and carpet, raising dust and killing mites (perhaps I should lower the volume a bit). Whether consumed as a sonic installation or an abstract piece of sound art, Time Elapsing Handheld captures the moment with its seven titles, creating a path which is "Leaving The Nowhere" through the "Memoirs", a bit "Counterclockwise", sometimes "Later, Earlier", and always "Inner". Lush soundscapes loop and breathe through organic piano tones, guitar strums, and harp plucks, drowning in a generous sweep of synthetic strings, sampled noise, and dripping effects. Read more ›

This is third solo album of Emanuele Errante and first on Berlin based Karaoke Kalk label. This Italian composer seems to be quite active during the last few months, because at the same time also his collaboration album with Dakota Suite, "The North Green Down", was released on another German label, Lidar. Let's focuse now on his Karaoke Kalk release on which Emanuele continues the path taken on his previous solo album "Humus", released on Somnia label, but this time with the acoustics sounding more naturally. He's blending with highest precision various acoustic instruments like guitar, piano and harp with atmospheric electronics and on-site recordings. This mixture of minimal ambient soundscapes and modern classical arrangements is not only very refined, skillfully detailed and balanced, but it's also very effective and absorbing. Already the opener "Leaving The Nowhere" is a great example of this penetrating effect provided by perfect interactions between acoustics and electronics, beautifully evocative! On darker, more atmospheric "Made To Give" is Emanuele joined by Simon Scott. Organic "Counterclockwise" with its very strong cinematic feel is certainly one of the highlights, absolutely gorgeous! But the same can be said on warm and melancholic "Inner" or on highly emotional "Later, Earlier" with catchy strings and glitchy field recordings. Slightly more dramatic "Dorian's Mirror" and closing "Memoirs", dominated by nice euphoric piano tones, are another outstanding compositions. Emanuele Errante is one of those musicians who can effectively merge acoustics with electronics and translate them into charming textures with magnificent atmospheres, on "Time Elapsing Handheld" he is doing it exceptionally well. A fascinating and tranquil time journey to the frontier of electroacoustic music!!!
