Preorder: new albums of POPPY ACKROYD and CARLOS CIPA + mailorder news

Hey.

Thanks a lot for your great feedback regarding the new albums of Blueneck and Thomas Köner. All cd pre-orders are already shipped. Please consider that there's a slight delay for all vinyl titles until the end of 2014 because of a bottleneck at the pressing plant. Please check your order status link for updates. Thanks a lot for your understanding.


NEW RELEASES
We're very pleased to present you the two new albums of the composers and multi-instrumentalists Carlos Cipa and Poppy Ackroyd.

den210 | Carlos Cipa - All Your Life You Walk Cd | 2x12'' | Digital
den214 | Poppy Ackroyd - Feathers Cd | 12'' | Digital

Like 'Escapement', Poppy Ackroyd's second album 'Feathers' mostly consists of piano and violin, but the palate of sounds is increased with other acoustic keyboard instruments - including harmonium, clavichord, harpsichord and spinet - and in the string sections Poppy's violin lines are augmented by guest cellist Su-a Lee. Field recordings add to the cinematic and atmospheric quality of the music: chiming wall clocks in Timeless, traffic noise on Roads, and the wave and pebble sounds from Brighton beach in Birdwoman. www.denovali.com/poppyackroyd

'All your life you walk' is a contemporary piano album, self-recorded, -performed and -produced in Carlos Cipa's own studio. Though each piece is framed as a coherent song, it's all pieces combined that create a musical flow, spanning over the whole album, with pieces converging and so-called fragments, that either lead over or build a contrast to the surrounding pieces. This might be seen as a consequence of the writing process, a combination of modern songwriting and classical composition that approaches the idea of writing an album as a musical form, where the songs serve as movements similar to a classical symphony or a sonata. www.denovali.com/carloscipa

CARLOS CIPA - ALL YOUR LIFE YOU WALK CD | 2x12'' | DIGITAL



CARLOS CIPA is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Munich. He has been classically trained on the piano and currently studies contemporary classical composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich. During his teenage years he started playing drums and gained experience as a member of various bands. Experimenting with different styles of music, he turned back to piano as his main instrument, which facilitates to find his way towards composition and improvisation, before releasing his debut “The Monarch and the Viceroy” on Denovali Records in 2012. Over the last three years CARLOS CIPA played over 60 concerts all over Europe and shared the stage with like-minded musicians like HAUSCHKA, ÓLAFUR ARNALDS and VALGEIR SIGURDSSON.

“All Your Life You Walk” is his long awaited second solo album. Carlos Cipa created unique contemporary compositions fraught with beauty, tension and emotional intensity, clearly presenting the unique voice of a composer, who is fascinated by classical and contemporary composers ranging from MOZART, DEBUSSY or RAVEL to STEVE REICH and DAVID LANG, but is also inspired by modern bands like THE NATIONAL or MOGWAI.

While his first full-length solo album “The Monarch and the Viceroy” (2012) is invariably based on the piano, his second publication “Relive”(2013) - a collaborative EP with pianist/composer SOPHIA JANI - adds sounds from the inside of the piano to the compositions. On his sophomore record “All Your Life You Walk” he continues this idea by electronically altering these atmospheric sounds and gentle beats, combining them with sounds from various other instruments, before adding them to his distinctive piano playing. Over the last two years, CARLOS CIPA has been collecting instruments, that were not longer in use: An Upright Piano, a Guitaret - a very rare instrument built by Hohner in the 1960s, previously played as well by musicians like WARREN ELLIS, LEO ABRAHAM or Icelandic experimental band MÙM -, an old Framus bass guitar from the 1960s, a marimba and a “Bavarian Hackbrett” (known as hammered dulcimer), that were getting all dusty in the attic of two childhood friends, an Oceanharp, a Glockenspiel, a few other percussion instruments and an old radio receiver, that belonged to his grandparents.

“All your life you walk” is a contemporary piano album, self-recorded, -performed and -produced in Carlos Cipa's very own “Beatschuppen Studio”. Though each piece is framed as a coherent song, it's all pieces combined that create a musical flow, spanning over the whole album, with pieces converging and so-called fragments, that either lead over or build a contrast to the surrounding pieces. This might be seen as a consequence of the writing process, a combination of modern songwriting and classical composition that approaches the idea of writing an album as a musical form, where the songs serve as movements similar to a classical symphony or a sonata. Conceived as concept album “All your life you walk” should be listened to as a whole.

POPPY ACKROYD - FEATHERS CD | 12'' | DIGITAL



Poppy Ackroyd is a performer and composer from London, currently based in Brighton. Classically trained on violin and piano from an early age, she studied piano and composition at Edinburgh University before completing a masters degree in Piano Performance. A long-term collaborator with Hidden Orchestra (Tru Thoughts Records, Denovali Records), she also works with other musicians and artists, creating soundtracks for film, dance, physical theatre and radio. Her debut album 'Escapement' (Denovali Records, 2012) impressed with its delicate, intricate and beautifully atmospheric music, created using only piano and violin (with the exception of a few field recordings). In 2013 Poppy collaborated with visual artist Lumen to create bespoke films for her live performances. Demand from audiences led to a DVD of the music and visuals combined - 'Escapement Visualised' - being released in September 2014. November 2014 sees the release of her second full-length album 'Feathers', which she will be performing live across Europe in the months following the release.

Through studying contemporary classical piano works and listening to electronic music, Poppy began to develop her own compositional style, using conventional pianistic ideas whilst also inhabiting the world of sound beyond the keyboard, using unconventional techniques to 'play' other parts of the instruments as well. Like 'Escapement', her second album 'Feathers' mostly consists of piano and violin, but the palate of sounds is increased with other acoustic keyboard instruments - including harmonium, clavichord, harpsichord and spinet - and in the string sections Poppy's violin lines are augmented by guest cellist Su-a Lee. Poppy's beloved, restored Blüthner grand piano in her studio is again the backbone of the album, providing most of the melodies, bass lines and percussive sounds. Other material originated from improvised recording sessions at the Russell/Mirrey Collection of keyboard instruments in Edinburgh. Having previously spent time there dismantling different pianos to understand how their mechanisms work and make sound, she was given complete freedom on her own in the museum to experiment with around fifty keyboard instruments from the 16th century to the 19th century. Selecting a few instruments for 'Feathers' that produced a variety of different timbres, it was again the other sounds these instruments could make that interested her, when treating them as sources for melodic or percussive material. Recordings of unfamiliar sounds, which include brushing/plucking the strings and tapping/stroking the frames or soundboards, are combined with accidental 'imperfect' sounds that come from playing the instrument, such as pedal noise or the sound of harpsichord shutters opening and closing. There is an intimate feel to the recordings as these older instruments are not designed to project sound loudly, so the microphones were placed very close to capture the minutest detail. Field recordings add to the cinematic and atmospheric quality of the music: chiming wall clocks in Timeless, traffic noise on Roads, and the wave and pebble sounds from Brighton beach in Birdwoman. The title of the album was inspired by the line 'Hope is the thing with feathers' (Emily Dickinson) - it also references the feather quill in the mechanisms of some of the keyboard instruments, and the recurring themes of birds and flight. With its delicate textures, rhythmic intricacy and achingly beautiful melodies, 'Feathers' is the perfect companion for stories of love, loss, hope and migration.
