World renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago is returning this September with 'Circadian Live', recorded while promoting the acclaimed album during his European tour last year. Delago assembled a team of renowned talent to showcase 'Circadian' as well as choice tracks from across his back catalogue and some truly exceptional improvisations. The intricate and dynamic push and pull of these compositions are recorded flawlessly, putting the listener right in the room on the night. The live interpretations beautifully recreate an atmosphere of pulsating rhythm, euphoric ambience as well as erupting cacophonies of cinematic instrumentation."Out of over 1000 gigs that I've played, this is the one programme that I wanted to make a live album of" Delago tells us, "Since being a student 10 years ago, I've dreamt of having my own ensemble that's big enough to have an orchestral sound quality, but small enough to give space to individual characters and to be a tight rhythmic union". After a long journey the 9-piece Circadian Ensemble evolved, consisting of three percussionists, three wind players and three strings. Although Manu Delago has often worked with and been inspired by electronic music, and that is evident in the writing here as much as any of his other releases, the performance captured was entirely acoustic and given an altogether personal, human touch.The original 'Circadian' was designed to take the listener through the cycle of sleep stages and Delago was inspired by the concept of individual circadian rhythms, due in part to his own lack of sleep as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar. 'Circadian Live' takes this theme further and allows his ensemble to gently awaken other aspects and translations in order to more fully explore it. The natural and effortless evolution of this material gives us both an honest retelling as well as something completely of itself.

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Pop
World renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago returns with a brand-new album, which comes hot off the heels of his acclaimed awe-inspiring short film and album project, Parasol Peak - the transfixing Circadian. The album, which is set for release on 13th September via One Little Indian Records (home to Delago's musical peer Björk), takes the listener through the cycle of sleep stages, emulating REM, light sleep, deep sleep and an abrupt awakening. Delago was inspired by the concept of individual circadian rhythms, due in part to his own lack of sleep as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar.Circadian takes the listener on a journey through the night, beginning in the late afternoon, moving into sunset and night time, through to the morning. "Title track 'Circadian' employs a repetitive 24-note-pattern for this reason, with some small rhythmic variations symbolising that our 24-hour-rhythm is not perfect, and everyone has individual variations in their sleep pattern - in my own case often due to jetlag" explains Delago.A departure from the Austrian musician's revered electronic-leaning work in Silver Kobalt and Metromonk, Delago incorporated percussive instruments found on those worldwide tours - from places such as Vietnam, Russia, Turkey and Indonesia - with an aim to create an electronicinspired album in an acoustic form. "I wanted to incorporate elements of the electronic music that influences me; I used clarinets and accordion like warm analog synthesizers, and added strings and trombone to give it an orchestral but yet very intimate character" he explains.Lead single 'The Silent Flight of the Owl' was written to emulate the sound of an owl's wings, with woodwind instruments gently performing an acoustic version of an analogue synth and a delay pedal. The track is an ode to an unusual experience Delago had a few years ago; "I had an encounter with an owl while I was brushing my t...
