Jesse Somfay releases his debut on Zaubernuss under the name of Flourish after releasing his first two EPs with us in 2004 and 2005 on Traum.
Flourish is a new project of his with which he first released on Strange Town Recordings in 2010.
All four trax articulate intimacy, sometimes jittering, sometimes floating... movement is a constant force with all of them. The moods are very different and seem at times a bit urgent at others times more outgoing and enthusiastic.
With "Heaven Tar" he opens with a beautiful piece of sacral sounding music that has organ sounds join Plastikman alike rhythm patterns. This track moves in a way a camera would when recording landscapes from a birds perspective. A kind of slow motion feeling leaves his tracks here.
"It's So Secret " is a track that hovers above the ground... is in mid air... so it is virtually not touchable.... propelled by a high tempo sound... creating contrast to the strings sounds that change keys to evoke a heavenly atmosphere.
"Midnight Oracle" says it all. This is a feedback of body and soul at a time of day when only these can possibly feedback... the echo of oneself... made healable. The only track that pounds along with a heartbeat like beat and is very intimate.
"Crystal Plumage (Salt Blossom)" is a wonderful evolution of a sound that constantly changes its physical condition. The track is very much a constant "up and down" in motion... but seems rather natural and organic" keeping up its strength throughout.
Release date: 9th August 2011
