Ora Clementi – Sylva Sylvarum (Black Truffle, 2LP/digital)

The sound artist crys cole and the composer James Rushford have let their joint project Ora Clementi rest for quite a while, but now return with a double LP on Oren Ambarchi's label Black Truffle. »Sylva Sylvarum« works with synthesizer sounds, occasionally interspersed beats and vocals that together evoke a dreamy, unreal atmosphere. New Age and Japanese Kankyō Ongaku are reference points, but so is sound poetry, early electronic music and drone underpinned by field recordings. A wonderfully weird album.
