Robert Haigh | "Human Remains" | Unseen Worlds | 2022

 


Robert Haigh | "Human Remains" | Unseen Worlds | 2022

 

Este es un nuevo álbum de Robert Haigh, pianista y compositor británico quien a principios de los ’80 creó el proyecto de dark ambient, Sema y también lo hizo bajo su propio nombre con solos de piano. A mediados de los ’80 contribuyó en dos álbumes de Nurse With Wound y en los '90 se editaron varios álbumes con el seudónimo de Omni Trio, con una particular combinación ambient / drum'n'bass. Hasta ahora tiene 14 álbumes publicados, además de singles y apariciones en compilados.

“Human Remains” completa la trilogía que se inicia con “Creatures of the Deep” (2017) y luego con "Black Sarabande" el 2020, todos ellos para el prestigioso sello Unseen Worlds afincado en Brooklyn.

Este nuevo álbum de ambient impulsado por el piano, junto a sutiles líneas de sintetizadores consiste en trece piezas de delicada factura que comienza con “Beginner's Mind”. Parece que aquí Haigh tocara las teclas con tal suavidad que la melodía fluye por los derroteros de la nostalgia. “Waltz on Treated Wire” despliega un precioso piano preparado junto con las propias teclas, creando ricas sonoridades. “Contour Lines” y “Rainy Season” evocan al compositor francés Erik Satie por su elegancia y elegíacas composiciones. “Like a Shadow”, “Still Life With Moving Parts” y “The Fourth Man” coinciden en su profundidad y ralentizados tiempos. Sólo unos pocos efectos electrónicos y el piano, permiten que “Lost Albion” sea una pieza inconmensurable y maravillosa. “Baroque Atom” es de los tracks con mayor rítmica a través de sus sorprendentes sesiones de cuerda. Cerrando este álbum, “On Terminus Hill” despliega sus alas para seguir volando alto, aunque las notas de piano quedan suspendidas como si fuera una despedida. Quizás sea un augurio de que Robert Haigh dejará la música para dedicarse a la pintura y a otros proyectos creativas, según ha dicho.

This is a new album by Robert Haigh, a British pianist and composer who in the early 80’s launched the dark ambient project Sema, and also under his own name with piano solos. In the mid 80’s he contributed to two Nurse With Wound’s albums and in the '90s several albums were released under the Omni Trio moniker, with a particular ambient/drum'n'bass combination. So far he has released 14 albums, as well as singles and compilation appearances.

"Human Remains" completes the trilogy that begins with "Creatures of the Deep" (2017) and then follows with "Black Sarabande" in 2020, both for the prestigious Brooklyn based Unseen Worlds label.

A new album piano driven ambient music, along with subtle synth lines, consists of thirteen delicately crafted pieces starting with “Beginner's Mind”. It seems that here Haigh touches the keys with such softness that the melody flows along the paths of nostalgia. “Waltz on Treated Wire” displays a beautifully prepared piano along with its own keys, creating rich sonorities. “Contour Lines” and “Rainy Season” evoke the French composer Erik Satie for the elegant and elegiac compositions. “Like a Shadow”, “Still Life With Moving Parts” and “The Fourth Man” coincide in their deepens and slow tempo. The piano and a few electronic effects allow “Lost Albion” to be an immeasurable and wonderful piece. “Baroque Atom” is one of the tracks with more rhythm through its uncanny string sessions. Rounding off the album, “On Terminus Hill” spreads its wings to continue flying high, although the piano notes are suspended as if it were a farewell. Perhaps it bodes well that Robert Haigh is stepping away from music in order to concentrate in painting and other creative projects, he has said.
