about

Dronæment should need no introduction as he has now gained a strong reputation in the ambient world thanks to some releases on various labels like Drone Records, Dachstuhl (Tarkatak's home), Afe or Mystery Sea (yes, again !). Marcus presents here two melancholic and nostalgic tracks, the first with softer sounds, based on the wonderful "Für Alina" by Arvo Pärt, the second (an older piece found on a long-lost tape) with some more aggressive sounds, full of analog synths. Two sides of Dronæment's beautiful music…


Vital Weekly 461:
Dronaement has a lot of previous releases (Drone Records, Dachstuhl, Mystery Sea or on his own Field Muzick) and here has two pieces showcasing his two different approaches to ambient music. 'Fuer Mur' is a soft and subtle one of shimmering sounds, birdcall-like piano notes and much delay and reverb. Very lighthearted ambient of a pastorale nature. 'Immer Da' on the other hand is much noiser and less subtle (to say the least), with similar sound sources sounding much more distorted. It's nice to hear both approaches, but I rather had a full twenty minute version of 'Fuer Mur'... (Frans de Waard)

Paris Transatlantic March 2005:
Arvo Pärt's Für Alina is the basic material over which Dronaement develops Fuer Mur, a kind of cross between the softer sides of Brian Eno's On Land and selected moments of Akira Rabelais' Eisoptrophobia. Pianos are engulfed in long reverberations that make them glow in a faint, almost ill sunlight. Under the surface, whispered voices and what sounds like an engine add some much-needed dirt. "Immer da" is shorter and angrier, with a basic sequence of notes repeated by an analog synth progressively distorted and mutilated by ever more frequent discharges of piercing buzz. Not exactly groundbreaking but pretty effective if listened to in the right mood. (Massimo Ricci)
