Another beautiful sweeping dense work by German artist Stephan Mathieu. Remain, a new 60 minute composition utilizes original material from Janek Schaefer’s Extended Play, reprocessed by Stephan Mathieu between September 2008 and October 2010 using an entropic setup, spectral analysis and convolution processes. A companion piece to A Static Place on 12k. (label info)

Year: 2011

… Not without good reason, Stephan Mathieu is practically revered by many electro-acoustic advocates. His incredibly subtle, microscopic particle arrangements are heard uninterrupted in this piece which unfolds with the organic, life-affirming nature of a gradual sunrise over a vast desert plain, picking out glints of light from individual grains of sand while suffusing his infinite scapes with caramelized drones and mirage-like spectral strings. This is sublime music crafted for meditative consumption. Highly recommended.

Proper chill out music!

I liken Remain to an aural equivalent of Barnett Newman’s Vir Heroicus Sublimis, 1950-51, which I had the pleasure of seeing firsthand at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City a few years ago. It is a warm, flowing release that wraps around you like water, and in which, you swim in the sound...

... One long flow of sound here of majestic beauty, calm and tranquil. Music that fills head and space in a similar fashion. Eno like ambient music that easily matches the work of the master.
