Michael Nyman – Decay Music (1976)

Decay Music is the 1976 debut album by Michael Nyman, released on Brian Eno‘s Obscure Records music label. The two works on the album, 1-100 (composed 1 December 1975) and Bell Set No. 1 (1974) are both built around the musical concept of decay. Both of these experiment with percussive, long decay musical forms. 1-100 is played at half the speed it was recorded. It was written for Peter Greenaway‘s film of the same title, but rejected because it was too long. It was inspired by Frederic Rzewski‘s Les Moutons de Panurge, which Nyman often played with the Scratch Orchestra. via

the lost library by porzellan ( Cotton Goods )

Porzellan is the handle adopted by French composer and baroque violinist, Francis Cazal for his quiet, rarified drones and neo-classical music. For the ever-lovely Cotton Goods label he offers eight gentle, slow, and subtle pieces, or as he puts it; “soundtracks for the reading, sleeping, dreaming or thinking listeners.”

f.s.blumm & nils frahm – music for lovers music versus time

“Music for lovers, music versus time. Isn’t love the opposite of time? Time can seem to go on forever when you are in love, but the moment you begin to grasp at the passing days, hours, minutes, then love is already beginning to decay. ‘You can’t hurry love’, as they say.

On this album, F.S.Blumm and Nils Frahm took the time to appreciate all the tiny details in a sound that many would never take the time to notice at all. Taking recordings culled from previous sessions of friends playing cellos, trumpets, vibraphones and more, the two Berliners began to improvise around these recordings and craft them into something far more abstract and expressive. Unleashed from the constraints of a ‘pop song’, these recordings began to take on a life of their own and whereas once they existed simply to serve the song, here they develop their own language where hair brushing against string or air vibrating across reed speaks volumes. To call this album a remix-album-in-disguise wouldn’t do it justice, but somewhere in there, remnants of some of Blumm’s ‘pop’ work with Old Splendifolia and Bobby & Blumm can be discovered…” via sonic pieces
