GENERAL INFORMATION ===================== Album: Mirage Artist: Ben Lukas Boysen Year: 2020 Genre / Style: Electronic / New Age / Modern Classical DESCRIPTION ================== With an extensive back catalog of releases and film scores under his belt, German producer and composer Ben Lukas Boysen (aka Hecq) returns with Mirage, his latest album for Erased Tapes. As Hecq, Boysen crafts high-precision electronics in the vein of post-industrial and IDMΓÇöwhereas under his own name the music seems to have a looser, more organic touch to it. Mirage brings the best of both worlds together, as live instrumentation from an array of guest musicians meets skillful sound design. ΓÇ£Empyrean,ΓÇ¥ the opening track commences with the morphed vocals of Lisa Morgenstern, then builds up with clicky percussion and dense synthesizer tracks, filling out the frequency spectrum quite nicely. The following track ΓÇ£KenotaphΓÇ¥ features drifting piano phrases and is complimented with the dynamic live drums of Achim F├ñrber. On ΓÇ£Medela,ΓÇ¥ Boysen blurs the line between human and machine, fusing the cello recordings of Anne M├╝ller, and saxophone elements of Daniel Thorne with artificial components, combining to form a type of audio mirage, as the title so appropriately states. The entire album has a cinematic vibe going on and the final track ΓÇ£LoveΓÇ¥ is no exception. With colliding acoustic and synthesized elements, the song builds up a massive crescendo in which one can feel the serotonin swelling inside the brain. What is quite evident with this release, is that Ben Lukas Boysen is always evolving and sharpening his craft, leaving listeners in awe, and curious of what he could come up with next. - Chris Amell on 06/01/2020 https://igloomag.com/reviews/ben-lukas-boysen-mirage-erased-tapes FILE INFORMATION ===================== Number of Tracks: 6 Total Duration: 42:18 Total Size: 96.8 MBs (including scan, m3u, and txt) Parity Archive: Yes, 7% Ripped By: NMR Files Created on: NMR Ripped With: NMR Encoded At: 320k CBR / 44.1 KHz ID3 Tags: Yes TXT Created: 30 March 2021 Tracklist ------------------ 01) Empyrean 02) Kenotaph 03) Medela 04) Venia 05) Clarion 06) Love POSTING ===================== Reposting Rules: Please wait at least 48 hours before requesting additional pars or reposting.
