Emanuele Errante Time Elapsing Handheld
Italian minimal ambient composer Emanuele Errante delivers his third exceptional full-length release, Time Elapsing Handheld, on Karaoke Kalk. Errante's compositions flow effortlessly, as he brilliantly combines minimal elements of guitar, harp and piano with lush, swelling, synthesized ambience and fuzzy, digitized effects. The album opens with "Leaving The Nowhere," a delicately layered, tranquil arrangement with distant chimes, euphoric strings and building guitar loops. Errante teams-up with former Slowdive member Simon Scott on "Made To Give." Together, they create a densely somber atmospheric soundscape. "Inner" skilfully balances texturally intricate field recordings and guitar interludes with waves of soft synth pads. Closing number "Memoirs" builds upon rhythmic guitar and piano loops while tightly being held together by drifting layers of ambience. Time Elapsing Handheld is a beautifully subtle, accomplished masterpiece worthy of repeat listens for years to come. Fans of Marsen Jules and Deaf Center should snap this up. Highly Recommended.
