Shelter Press has made good on its promise to deliver the third and final volume of its series featuring Yellow Swan Gabriel Saloman, released both on vinyl and collected with Vol. I and. II as a double CD. For fans of Saloman’s post-Yellow Swans work - an already dense catalog of darkly cinematic compositions mostly conceived as accompaniment to some of Vancouver’s edgier contemporary dance companies, Movement Building Vol. III is not only a much anticipated conclusion to this trilogy, it is the most fully realized album in years. Where as Movement Building Vol. I & II acted primarily as documentation of time-based artworks, Movement Building Vol. III offers a more coherent and narratively rich album that will appeal to admirers of Soldier’s Requiem (Miasmah, 2013).Listeners will recognize the emotive bowed strings, militant percussion and searing guitar eruptions that evoked memory and trauma in that previous album. Joining this pallet are other familiar Saloman sounds: shoegaze washes of distorted guitar, minimalist piano attacks, melancholic appregiated melodies, and a patina of harsh noise. Added to this is a more 21st Century approach to drums and bass, perhaps an effect of his collaborations with producer Michael Red in their dub-ambient project Chambers. Saloman’s music has never sat comfortably in any genre, sharing with a select cohort of other artists (Stephen O’Malley, Lawrence English, Grouper, Kreng, Tim Hecker, among others) an ambiguous position between “modern classical”, “electronic music”, and the more outer limits of metal. Movement Building Vol. III doesn’t clarify as much as it expands Saloman’s oeuvre further into an idiosyncratic musical no-man’s land that fails to be faithful to any popular musical trend - contemporary, retro or futurist.

Gabriel Saloman
Movement Building Volume 2
LP | 2015 | EU | Original (Shelter Press)
17,99 €*
Release:2015 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
2nd volume in Gabriel Saloman’s “Movement Building” series, continuing the release of original compositions commissioned for contemporary dance works. Following the enthusiastically received first installment – volume one’s album length The Disciplined Body – Saloman offers up 5 new tracks that combine shimmering bowed guitars and reverberant acoustic percussion into a meditative and powerful break from anything he’s produced before. Mobilizing the frequencies of contemporary electronic music Movement Building vol. 2 abandons the conventional instrumentation and genre motifs embraced by many of his peers in favour of an utterly unique hybrid of avant-drone, psych-rock and Japanese traditional music.
