Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"Swells of Stravinsky, the mercurial keyboard majesty of Debussy, the triadbased romanticism of Arvo Pärt, the clangorous sensuality of Keith Jarrett, the electronics-meet-acoustics approach of Max Richter, and the beaming melodic flashes of the Takoma Records cartel." -- Pitchfork

"Minimalist, cinematic music that combines modern, experimental acoustic sounds with classical qualities." -- NPR, Second Stage

Balmorhea's previous album was intensely physical, exploring the freedom and isolation of settlers of an untamed frontier. By contrast, Constellations shifts focus to the cosmos and beyond, meditating solemnly on the mystical and metaphysical. The disarming simplicity of the tracks proves that Balmorhea doesn't need dense arrangements full of 180-degree turns to craft deeply affecting compositions.

Review

"Balmorhea flashes brilliance only to highlight a slow-burning constancy that's at the core of one of the year's early slow wonders." -- Pitchfork

Format: Audio CD
A very talented group of musicians. Much is done with volume and silence in this work, and the compositions are quite beautiful. There is a haunting, elegiac quality to most of this album; and bright, hopeful musical moments exist in between the darker ones. Expect an instrumental work, a cross of ambient/classical/folk music, no words. Put this album on and meditate equally on the rain and the sunshine that follows.

This record is absolutely incredible. While I appreciate the digital version of this album immensely, there is really nothing like hearing it on a record player. So glad I purchased this and will keep it forever. The record arrived on time and in good condition. Definitely recommend to any!

I have taken to only buying Balmorhea on vinyl for two reasons. Firstly, it is perfect music for the record player for Friday night dinners and for calm sunday mornings. Secondly, they have always come with the mp3 download for free.

Now, about the music. While Balmorhea always seems to calm this does so while also sounding wholey different than their other albums. Constellations seems to be a fitting title as you can imagine endlessly while listening. Though, this music is not for everyone and most certainty, some one will disagree with me, the chords and tones are wisely executed and enjoyable to both classical listeners as well as those who believe this "type" of music can be bore.

This isn't Balmorhea's previous album (All Is Wild, All Is Silent) with the same formula kicked up a notch; Constellations is an entirely different creature and takes some patience. But it's so rewarding if you can sit down and spend some time with it.
