*In process of stocking* Eight distinguished artists wrote and recorded original pieces for this album which joins some dots between vintage, experimental & new ambient, and pays tribute to the relaunched Made To Measure composers’ series 

Featuring, by order of appearance:

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, the American modular synth wizard (US)

Christina Vantzou, the Greek-American orchestral composer (US/GR)

Stubbleman aka maverick ambient composer Pascal Gabriel (UK/BE), with Norwegian trumpet player Nils Petter Molvær (NO)

Lucrecia Dalt (COL) + Camille Mandoki (MX) + Matias Aguayo (CL/DE), in a special collaboration

Mary Lattimore, the celestial experimental ambient harpist (US)

Inne Eysermans, the front person from Belgian indie band Amatorski (BE)

Félicia Atkinson, the French experimental musician & visual artist (FR)

Benjamin Lew & Steven Brown (BE/US), with their first collab in over three decades

All tracks were made to measure for this album, and revolve around the loose idea of wordless fiction. Aside from being such a seductive, fascinating collection of tracks and moods, the album is also modestly aiming at joining dots between certain classic ambient composers (represented here by Benjamin Lew & Steven Brown and Stubbleman, whose work has previously appeared in the Made To Measure series), artists who approach experimental ambient from their pop or club background (Lucrecia Dalt, Inne Eysermans, Matias Aguayo), and eminent exponents of the great new generation of ambient music composers (Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Christina Vantzou, Mary Lattimore, Félicia Atkinson).

The cover of Fictions is a reproduction of a painting by renowned Belgian artist Angel Vergara Santiago (two of his paintings were already featured on covers of early Made To Measure volumes, back in the 1980s).  'Fictions' was curated by Marc Hollander
