About this item

New recordings by Danish electronic trio System (aka Future 3) in collaboration with Berlin based composer Nils Frahm. His purpose-built improvisations on synth, organ and piano served as source material for the members of System (Thomas Knak, Anders Remmer & Jesper Skaaning), who merged his warm acoustic tones with their minimalist digitalism and set out to translate their distinctive clicks 'n' cuts electronics into vivid soundscapes. The blending of piano and digital tones and noises into emotive pieces might instantly recall the work of Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto, though System and Frahm come to quite different results.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: A truly heavenly and celestial offering here; tranquil and imparting an impenetrable sense of calm onto all who receive it. For me it draws comparisons with the Heavenly Music Corp LP on Astral Industries - absolutely sublime.
