M. Ostermeier: Still

M. Ostermeier: Still

Marc Ostermeier of shoegaze band Should has been exploring minimalist piano ambience for a few years now, this is the third such album on his Tench label. Piano is the focus here, but there’s calm electronic drone and field recordings. Lots of rattling and clicking sounds. “Counterpoise” sticks out with its electronic glitch textures. “Congruence” has heavy bass tones (not super heavy, kind of hollow, but definitely high volume). “Inertia” has high-pitched tweeting sine waves. “Parity” has more bass tones. For fans of Alva Noto’s collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto.
