Latvian ambient master Astrowind has a new release
March 13, 2012
-- Astrowind is Kriipis Tulo from Latvia who has been featured as a key figure of the Latvian electronic music scene for producing some of the most essential experimental electronic and ambient music of the past years. Astrowind creates deep music with help of vintage analog synthesizers and open-reel tape recorder. Sven Swift says "Astrowind got the harmonies and the sound to become one of the most interesting Baltic acts to emerge from a scene rich of innovative musicians." After releasing a few works on underground music labels, Astrowind took his place on Fluttery Records and his 12 track album Fresh Wind In The Valley Of Dreams is made available the label.
Many Astrowind’s tracks are themed in outer space and its secrets – musical attempts to grasp the unknown. Astrowind offers a spiral of accumulated experience of what has been seen, heard, dreamt and read, the desire to get away beyond the horizon of consciousness and sub-consciousness through musical experience.
The album is dedicated to the cosmonaut Aleksey Leonov - the first man in outer space and a person who has always appealed to the author. The album provides a fusion of nostalgic echoes of Soviet news broadcasts, an echo of old radio sets and the cinematic patina of artwork by censored Soviet filmmakers. These are islands of memory, the past overcoming the future.
