[Music] Jim Perkins & Tom Gaisford – Byrds


It’s not everyday that you see a single of classical music released, but this reinterpretation of the works of 16th and 17th Century English composer William Byrd, ably handled by Jim Perkins & Tom Gaisford, even features a remix by Leah Kardos of Byrd’s Kyrie.  Bigo & Twigetti continue to knock it out of the park in terms of quality releases.

For a more in-depth review, consider visiting our friends over at a closer listen.

[Music] Juhani Silvola – Post​-​Biological Wildlife


Norwegian composer Juhani Silvola is the heir of the French electroacoustic music tradition, and he has managed to update the sound while maintaining its spirit.  According to his biography, “Juhani’s music often explores themes circling post-humanism, nature and virtual reality, questioning the role of humanity in the near future, and painting varied scenarios without exclusively condemning or glorifying the techno-futuristic vision.”  We’re in for a bleak future, folks.

Post​-​Biological Wildlife is his latest album, released on his own Eighth Nerve Audio.
