Maze & Lindholm | “A River Flowing Home To The Sea” | Bedouin Records | 2020


Maze & Lindholm está compuesto por P. Maze aka Pierre de Mûelenaere quien es la mitad del dúo de post-industrial/techno, Orphan Swords. Es músico y editor de literatura (ediciones ONLIT). Desde 2010 trabaja como programador y curador independiente para el Centro de Bellas Artes de Bruselas (BOZAR). Otto Lindholm trabaja con loops, efectos electrónicos y toca el contrabajo, combinando la música clásica y la electrónica. Tiene un par de discos editados y colaboró en el nuevo EP de Black Rain “Computer Soul” publicado en el sello Blackest Ever Black.

El dúo vuelve a reunirse después de su LP “Where The Wolf Has Been Seen”, editado en Aurora Borealis, en 2018 y ahora en junio lo hacen con "A River Flowing Home To The Sea" que editó la etiqueta tailandesa Bedouin Records y que es distribuida por Modern Matters de Berlín.

La música de Maze & Lindholm es por sobre todo envolvente con atmósferas que tienen atisbos a la música oriental, junto a loops con gruesas capas de sonidos y las reverberaciones del contrabajo como se advierten en “The Raw Silk”. Todo ello crea un ambiente inquietante y sombrío, acompañado con olas de tensión y oscuridad. No obstante, se puede ver la luz con las campanas orientales de “All Under Heaven Rests” que invitan al oyente a transportarse y dejarse llevar por el trance inducido de sus vibraciones. “The Uncut Wood” continúa el viaje en el que asoman viñetas de manipulaciones electrónicas al contrabajo.

Maze & Lindholm proponen un paisaje sonoro misterioso y al mismo tiempo cautivador, con capas que se superponen con tonos oscuros y brillantes como bien representa la carátula de este álbum.

Maze & Lindholm is comprised of P. Maze aka Pierre de Mûelenaere, half of the post-industrial / techno duo Orphan Swords. He is a musician and literature editor (ONLIT editions). Since 2010 he works as a freelance programmer and curator for the Center for Fine Arts in Brussels (BOZAR). Otto Lindholm works with loops, electronic effects and plays the double bass, combining classical and electronic music. He has a couple of albums released and has collaborated on the new Black Rain EP "Computer Soul" released on Blackest Ever Black imprint.

The duo reunites after their LP "Where The Wolf Has Been Seen", released in Aurora Borealis, in 2018 and now in June they do it with "A River Flowing Home To The Sea" that released the Thai Bedouin Records label which is distributed by Modern Matters from Berlin.

The music of Maze & Lindholm is above all immersive with atmospheres that have glimpses to oriental music, along with loops with thick layers of sounds and reverberations of the double bass, as it is noted on "The Raw Silk". All this creates a disturbing and gloomy atmosphere, accompanied by waves of tension and darkness. However, the light can be seen with the oriental bells on “All Under Heaven Rests” that invite the listener to let him/herself be carried away by the induced trance of their vibrations. "The Uncut Wood" continues the journey in which vignettes of electronic manipulations appear on the double bass.

Maze & Lindholm propose a mysterious and at the same time captivating soundscape, with layers overlapping with dark and bright tones as well as the art cover of this album represents.
