A night of ambient music at Kremwerk Featuring: Kylmyys http://kylmyys.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/kylmyys Popularly referred to as an electronic/acoustic ambient act, but maybe more accurately this synth-duo could be described as artistic portrayers of the interaction between the blue planet and its denizens, crossing the flesh/metal divide by creating melodies and rhythms with new and old technologies. Influenced by such seminal acts as Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, Sigur Rós, Pink Floyd, Christoph de Babalon and Atticus Ross, Kylmyys is truly eclectic: These soundscapers blur genre boundaries with enigmatic, fluxing landscapes of sound, visiting an array of styles from Ambient, to Trip Hop, to IDM. Hailing from the city of Seattle amongst romantic, rain-drenched back alleyways and awe-inspiring, snowcapped, mountain tops— peaking through billowy clouds —Kylmyys musicians Brian Kidd and Jason Chamberlain do not have to travel far to find musical inspiration. However, since the band’s debut self-release The Ice Breaks at Dawn in the summer of 2012 and the subsequent release of the critically acclaimed single Cosmosis (released on Automation Records) in early 2013, thanks to positive reception on the Internet, these prolific songsmiths have gained attention far outside the North American Continent. This includes getting noticed by Swiss label Creaked Records, who will release the duo’s five-song EP, Isostatic, in January 2014. Your City Sleeps https://yourcitysleeps.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/yourcitysleeps "Some of you may have been wondering: Who is going to be Seattle's next great ambient-music producer? Gel-Sol kind of has been ruling on that front for the last five years or so. But Your City Sleeps (aka Miles Kazemian) seems poised to join him on the uppermost cloud of (mostly) beatless aural joy. Your City Sleeps has become one of the area's most ambitious ambient-music makers, with a highly advanced skill for generating tenebrous atmospheres and dramatic, post–Blade Runner soundscapes. In appearance, Kazemian bears a striking resemblance to late-'60s Vangelis, and some of his compositions approach that legendary keyboardist's for unusual timbres and atmospheric grandeur. With great attention to detail, Your City Sleeps offers an unconventionally beautiful, superior way to chill." -Dave Segal, The Stranger Madeleine Cocolas http://www.madeleinecocolas.com/ https://soundcloud.com/madeleine-cocolas Madeleine Cocolas is a classically trained composer and pianist.

I caught a live performance by YCS last Wednesday at the Living Room's Show & Tell night and was deeply impressed. Now you can hear that set, which has been posted on Soundcloud [see below].
