Koreless: New Ambient

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Anyone into this Welsh ambient producer? I just listened to the tracks linked here and they sound very nice. I was thinking about Steve Reich at one point, maybe just because of some of the soft percussive tones and patterns in one piece, and then I see at the bottom that he's influenced by Reich and La Monte Young and the idea of process music. Has anyone heard the whole Yügen EP?

really wanted to like it, but didn't do much for me

i think it was just the cut up vocals that put me off. i don't really enjoy that sound anymore

it's a bit like a cross between fennesz 'endless summer' and mileece's 'formations'

Yeah these are pretty nice, I'll keep an eye on this guy. Thanks.

i love everything i've heard from him so far, def. going to check out the EP.

K: Yeah, I was reading a lot around the time of writing the EP-- a lot of Ballard and that-- which is something I’d never done until I discovered audio books.

i hope he doesn't mean "reading" in general.

Hmm, will keep in mind.

xpost - he may well. I know lots of perfectly smart people who don't really read books.

yeah sorry, i don't meant to suggest that he's not an intelligent dude/musician, he clearly is. it makes me happy when musicians also read books though.

I actually prefer this EP to Tomorrow's Harvest, although I like the latter and am a fan of BoC. It feels like much more of an effort was made to shape the compositions.

'last remnants' is so dope.

I'm not sure where all these are from, since the official version on his Bandcamp only has two tracks, but these offcuts are fantastic (as of course is the album from last year)

I will always deeply love Koreless, weird that I never stated that on this thread. Something new & something old:

Agor is all time. I think it was 2 or 3 on my 2021 ballot

Had no idea there was a thread on him here. Amy word on a new full length?

I've gotten the impression that he's been doing everything but putting out music...live shows, working with orchestras/strings awhile back, apparently working on FKA Twig's next album, fashion show soundtracks, etc.

This record of b-sides is incredible (used to be on youtube but no longer)

FKA Twig's new album? Well that's super exciting!

Haven't heard that b-sides collection and will check it out ASAP thanks
