Kai’s work is often based on stories, but the sixth album of a russian composer is a whole story itself. Rewind the clock to ‘Irsen’s Tale’ time and listen to neoclassical piano compositions once again, only much more mature and polished. While in a lot of ways it’s a Kai Engel you’re used to, ‘Rain Catcher’ will talk about something new, about a boy, out there in a night sky with stars, rain and finally dawn. It’s all in piano sound.

Let’s go for a walk through Reykjavík!
This release is the fifth from Sound Interpretation series dedicated to cities.
We believe that each city has its own unique air. But anyone who works with the sound knows that every city has a inimitable soundscape and rhythm. So let’s make a musical journey through the cities. Cities you’ve been or would like to visit.
“Diaspora” is the debut album from the Ethernet Orchestra, an Internet based music ensemble exploring intercultural tele-improvisation. It is a compilation of live freely improvised vignettes from performances recorded between 2009-2014. It features musicians from a diverse range of cultures and musical traditions performing simultaneously between Iran and Australia via North America, Canada, Brazil and Europe. Distance is embodied in the material quality of the works, which not only serves as testament to the technological achievement of such a project but also forms part of the grain of the medium itself.
During this period we also had the great fortune to collaborate with the late Richard Lainhart, who is featured on many of the recordings. Ethernet Orchestra would like to dedicate this album to Richard, whose passion and generosity touched us all and his music continues his presence in our lives.
The album also contains works from the “Distant Presences” trilogy of performances. These events included networked VJs Helen Varley Jamieson, Neil Jenkins, Graziano Milano and Michael Szpakowski mixing live cinematic visual collages in the audiovisual platform VisitorsStudio, which can be viewed from diasporasound.wordpress.com/vjmixes
