1 - TALVIHORROS - AND IT WAS SO - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Talvihorros is London based composer Ben Chatwins study of guitar and electronics. Numerous techniques are used to coax a myriad of sounds from both acoustic and electric guitars. Home-made and vintage electronic equipment are used to loop, process and manipulate improvised material into dense and dark sound collages. What started out as a personal challenge to make an album in 7 days grew into something else entirely. Over a year in the making, and expanding his trademark guitar sound with drums, strings, bells, organs and synthesisers, 'And It Was So' features contributions from fellow label mates Field Rotation (violin) and Petrels (cello) along with tour partner Jordan Chatwin (drums/percussion) and long time collaborator Anais Lalange (viola). If last years album 'Descent Into Delta' was reminiscent of plunging into the murky depths, his latest offering 'And It Was So' evokes the expansiveness, dynamicism and density of the cosmos . Attempting to find order in chaos is something Talvihorros has been striving to achieve over the past three albums and he has never balanced these elements so beautifully. Merging the textural noise of Tim Hecker with psychedelic, guitar sound-sculpters such as Barn Owl and Sun Araw. Nice digipak packaging.

3 - TALVIHORROS - EATEN ALIVE - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Eaten Alive is the fifth studio album as Talvihorros for the experimental British composer Ben Chatwin. Marking a move away from Chatwin's signature guitar sound into a wide-ranging electronic sound palette, featuring his most direct and uncompromising work to date. The album was born when Daniel Crossley, owner of Fluid Radio met with Ben in late 2010. The pair visited areas in East London where Daniel had lived for much of his life, also the same area Ben found himself living. They shared stories and memories, looking back at a past that featured loss, isolation, addiction and abuse. For fans of BEN FROST, CLINT MANSELL and TIM HECKER.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Little Pieces Of Discarded Life 7:21 02. Four Walls 5:45 03. In The Belly Of The Beast 5:17 04. Objectum 2:36 05. Dyspnea 5:04 06. The Secrects Of The Sky 6:40 07. Becoming Mechanical 5:16 08. Today I Am Reborn 4:56

5 - TALVIHORROS - LET US BE THANKFUL WE HAVE COMMERCE (10") - (EP) 
DENOVALI


Let Us Be Thankful We Have Commerce' was the inaugral, cassette-only release on London-based publishing house My Dance The Skull. It was composed as a response to the worrying grasp of consumerism over much of western society. Inspired by the first few Talvihorros live improvisational shows a small, primitave set-up consisting of guitar, mixer, casio keyboard, effects and percussion were used to create two long, vibrant and constantly shifting pieces. It now sees the light of day again as a limited 10" rerelease via denovali records. Thick sleeves; free download code.

6 - TALVIHORROS - MUSIC IN FOUR MOVEMENTS - (LP) 
DENOVALI


With Music in Four Movements I set out to compose four long pieces of music that would act as suites rather than shorter melodic songs as I had done on my previous record Some Ambulance. Using longer time frames afforded the sounds time and space with which to evolve and move. This has led to what could be labelled as my most ambient work i have released but I think also the most intense. Throughout the recording process I became interested in the fundamental ideas of life and death and why people would choose to take their own lives, (reading The Road on a day long train back to London from Scotland, hungover after New Year certainly contributed to this). Slowly a narrative presented itself and the 4 tracks started to represent a journey of the final days of someone who has chosen to end everything. I became particularly interested in reading stories about people who drowned themselves in rivers or the sea - a bleak yet strangely beautiful image of someone walking their final walk into the sea became a strong visual influence for the record."" For fans of BARN OWL, TIM HECKER and dense dark sound collages in general. Vinyl: thick deluxe gatefold sleeves; 180g vinyl; free download code

TRACKLISTING: 01. A Continual Echo Of The Sound Of Loss (part I) 02. A Continual Echo Of The Sound Of Loss (part Ii) 03. Thoughts Of Violence 04. And Then They Walked Into The Sea

7 - TALVIHORROS - SOME AMBULANCE - (LP) 
DENOVALI


Some Ambulance should be the first port of call for those with even a passing interest in where electro-acoustic and ambient music is heading in 2009/10, while I can imagine the uninitiated finding lots to love too. Theres a strong STEVE REICH influence prevalent here, especially the skillful use of slide-rule repetition, particularly found on The Blue Cathedral and Etude IV. But other tracks take different routes, Death of a Dream paints a bleak MORRICONE-esque picture with its forlorn guitar and solemn atmosphere created using a vibrant tapestry of sounds as its backdrop. While A Rural Place contains a staggered synth-rythmn and discordant effects that reminds me of something THOM YORKE might come up with in his solo ventures. My favourite composition comes in the form of haunting opener Handwriting (Part 1) (and indeed its closing part which ends this release) mainly down to the fact I can detect a strong Labradford influence from the way it builds from its grainy beginnings into a vast melancholic dronescape flickered with static and tape hiss. The effect of the whole piece is somewhat gratifying and I cant help but recall the first time I heard Nelson and cos seminal Praizision Ive found myself going back to this record time and time again. Its endlessly listenable and it packs a surprise with each spin. A bit like Rudi Arapahoes 2008 record Echoes From One To Another, Talvihorros release has come from nowhere and knocked me sideways. It is not an exaggeration to say this is one of my favourite records this year." Michael Henaghan, [sic] Magazine - For fans of BARN OWL, TIM HECKER and dense dark sound collages in general.
