Heralds

Elías Ortega Fajardo It imprints a vivid image of a port city and its stories that flow through its streets.

Every piece -except for the beginning portion of "Bells Ringing III" (which makes me cringe every time I listen to it), is wonderfully crafted and evokes a genuine feeling.

Erotic whispers from Beatrice. A distant trumpet. And a red sound of strings.

This was not produced by simply going through the motions.

Wonderful.
Favorite track: St. George.

otomstreet This is one of my true favorites of Dark Ambient recordings. I love the way he blends actual instruments in.The presence is so real Favorite track: Beatrice's Euphoria.

TheWanderingCathar I felt like I have stumbled into an old jazz bar. The remnants of the building lay solemn as the music drifts from the cracks and through the ventilation. There are only a few patrons inside and yet I feel like I have never left. The bartender just serves ambiance and charges only that you stay to listen to the rest of the music. The atmosphere is warm and you just want to stay longer. Favorite track: Bell Ringing I.

about

Wordclock hunts for the myths of old European sacred sites.

Pedro's trail led him on a long journey through Porto, London and Berlin to record acoustic instruments and field recordings within the cities.

During months of work in the studio more people joined.

Amund Ulvestad on Cello and Electronics, who previously helped out on Wordclock's second album Self Destruction Themes.

Nuno Craveiro on Scandinavian instrument Nyckelharpa.

George Shmanauri on Trumpet, from dark atonal jazz duo Phonothek.

The resulting album Heralds breaks the fringe of the genre and re-assembles the pieces. It reveals itself as a dreamlike, spiritual and nihilistic album. Classical instruments float on a backdrop of tape loops and organic sound. Sacrificial and Touching.

Recommended for fans of Dark Jazz and Neoclassical.
