NY ambient artist Aria Rostami, who has announced in the past from Dirk Entries, Geographic North, Glacial Movements, etc., has received the first cassette in Japan that was released independently in January 2021.

Contains 11 expressive songs from lyrical ambient to Balearic and jazz.Sean McCann is in charge of mastering. Limited to 100 copies, already out of print.I will attach the DL code for 4 of his works.

 

"The multi-instrumentalist and producer, who has previously released on Geographic North, Glacial Movements, Dark Entries and Spring Theory, has said that his 10th LP,'Acra', is a wholly new direction musically that focuses on piano, flute and guitar compositions while implementing more familiar aspects such as electronics and ambient textures.

'My fiancé and I were going to get married on June 12th 2020 but our plans, as well as everything else in the world, were turned upside down when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. We planned a small road trip for ourselves within New York State and Massachusetts that weekend instead. The trip included a stop in Acra, New York, where we stayed by the forest, went to the watering hole because the trails were closed down and spent the first night watching'Silence of the Lambs'. We We listened to a lot of acoustic music, especially songs with guitar. It had been a few years since I owned a guitar and I started getting an itch to play one again. I bought a classical guitar as well as a handful of different flutes when we got back to Brooklyn.'Acra' is the sounds and feelings of that faux Honeymoon – the title track itself is a response to Jessica Pratt's album'Quiet Signs' which my fiancé played for me for the first time on this trip. I recorded the songs at home while we were quarantining – you can hear my fiancé quietly in the background on some tracks as she opens and closes cupboards or walks around – artifacts of our lives in quarantine. The hiss on the tracks, the scratches on the guitar and various room noises were left in to keep the intimacy of the place and time in my life.'
