Easychord & Forest Management // LANDFORMS AFT0013
Landforms is a split album between ambient artists Easychord (IT) and Forest Management (US). The two began discussing a possible collaboration during the Spring of 2014, e-mailing back and forth on various topics that border existentialism, the concept of "abyss", and a shared interest in nocturnal skyline viewing. After more than a year of busy schedules, Landforms has materialized - an album that represents a deeper conversation between two men on two different sides of the Atlantic.
Easychord music is a sort of mantra of perceptive sonic adventure, structured through the rhythmic alternation of layered loops, repetition, shapes and movements. Closer to the concept of the "sound of memory", his music represents a universe in itself, a primeval, haunting and amniotic world.
Forest Management (a.k.a. U.S. electronic musician John Daniel) uses digitally-processed recordings of sound sources like the piano and synthesizer to sculpt entirely new sonic hues, for the purpose of composition. His warm, fluorescent-like brand of drone has often been said to contain a cinematic, dream-like presence.
