Music, at its arguable core, is the harmonious union of sound and soul. Across generations of musical history, the tools of the trade to communicate the human experience have dramatically shifted (from gregorian harmonies to 808s, and now TikToks (!) to name a few). Sound designers and ambient composers, predominantly sensory individuals, generally rely on a more elemental set of musical tools. Loscil, aka Scott Morgan (a film/video game sound designer and prior collaborator in the rock outfit, Destroyer), creates sonic experiences anchored by an emotional affinity that inspires the serene but never touch stasis. On Clara (Latin for bright), Loscil manipulates dense atmospheric textures, pulsing melodic passages, and thoughtful, conceptual framing to evoke a space that bathes the listener in reflective soundscapes exploring the ever-changing nature of light and darkness. Truly a vibe.

Morgan—whose first release as Loscil came in 2001—has constructed an impressive body of work weaving brooding ruminations, visual artistry (through a collection of mesmerizing music videos), and reflections on cosmic-scale natural phenomena. The foundation for Clara is no different. Sourced from an uncredited three-minute-recording performed by a 22-piece string orchestra in Budapest, Morgan sliced, blemished, and stitched this anonymous recording throughout the 10-track collection. "The source material has not been revealed anywhere," Morgan told Qobuz. "[I] might [release it] eventually but not before the album comes out." The resulting record, which is wonderfully opaque, dark, and spatial, is accented by gleaming passages sampled from these orchestral tapes. On "Stella," cascading strings resolve stinging emotional tension before fading into a background of soft, bobbing bell tones. "Vespera" opens with a cantering hand-shaker-like shuffle which, before long, is engulfed from both audible sides with seismic synthesizers that only subside for a pocket for a stringed passage. It illuminates, and is audibly reminiscent of the first rays of sunrise. Final track "Clara" offers a proper closing with a nine-minute sonic bath of lush, encompassing sound before marching ever so gently into blissful blankness.

In all its equivocal sensations, Clara speaks the loudest in its softest moments. It requests a patient listener primed for a journey of heart and mind with ambient tools and textures front and center. In all its apparent emptiness, it offers delights numerously unfolding and infinitely mysterious. © William Card/Qobuz

Nils Frahm, le piano debout

Salué par les critiques de la musique classique comme par les amateurs d’expériences électroniques, le talent de Nils Frahm a mis tout le monde d’accord ces dix dernières années. Qu’il utilise un orgue d’église ou un synthétiseur flanqué de pédales d’effet, le pianiste allemand regarde toujours vers l’avant et c’est pour ça qu’il semble si séduisant.

Warp, 30 ans de musique risquée

Le catalogue de Warp, la maison de disques qui a permis l’éclosion de certains des artistes les plus exigeants de la musique électronique, comme Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre ou Squarepusher, est désormais disponible sur Qobuz. L’occasion idéale pour revenir sur la destinée du label indépendant le plus respecté d’Angleterre.

Un nouveau monde entre électro et classique

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Depuis quelques années, tous ces noms en vogue ont été regroupés sous la vaste et imprécise étiquette “néoclassique”. A dire vrai, cette “scène” ressemble plutôt à une bande hétéroclite d’artistes fureteurs qui mêlent instruments classiques et production électronique – avec une connexion assumée aux pionniers du minimalisme américain – régalant les sens et ouvrant des perspectives des deux côtés de leur spectre musical.
