R. Girardin - Emotional Music
R. Girardin
Emotional Music
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Palto Flats)

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
A friend once described synthesizers to R. Girardin as "the sound of ecstatic joy made tangible". He felt the friend was onto something, even if it was naïve, or just optimistic, the friend was describing the unique power of this extra-musical device. In Emotional Music we are treated to Girardin’s tooling of the synthesizer as that spiritual instrument, one where the typical motifs of musicality and style degrade in favor of poetic modulation matrices and breath controlled hopefuls. Girardin explores ideas of solitude in the practice of computer music production, giving way to a collection of short dynamic pieces created solely with digital instruments and tools. Unlike other instruments, synthesizers occupy a special place in sonic energy, dependent on electricity, amplification and speakers for physical sound creation. Emotional Music is a synthesis of both the human and synthesizer’s expressive logics; one of internal architectures capable only through external inlets and outlets.
Mariah - Utakata No Hibi
Utakata No Hibi
2LP | 1983 | US | Reissue (Palto Flats)
29,99 €*
Release:1983 / US – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The 1983 cult-classic 'Mariah - Utakata No Hibi' sees its re-release for the first time. Deluxe edition with printed innersleeves. Tip!

The long sought after final record on the legendary Better Days label, Utakata No Hibi is the culmination of composer and bandleader Yasuaki Shimizu's early-80s work, often compared to his contemporaries Ryuichi Sakamoto and Haruomi Hosono, as well as experimental new wavers Flying Lizards/David Cunningham, all of whom Shimizu has worked with. Recognized in Japan for the hit, 'Shinzo No Tobira,'' the entire record is a masterful studio production of Japanes folk and pop idioms filtered through a chamber disco, new wave, synth production, sounding more relevant today that upon its release over 30 years ago. Issued by Palto Flats Records, Utakata NO Hibi is fully licensed by Columbia japan and the Aritst and remasterd by Dubplates in Berlin. The packaging features additional artwork from Ira Okudaira, who created the original stunning jacket drawings. It retains the original double 12'' 45 rpm play format, and includes a full English translation of the Japanese and Armenian lyrics on the printed inner sleeves.
