DANIEL O'SULLIVAN

ELECTRIC MAYA: DREAM FLOTSAM AND ASTRAL HINTERLANDS

VHF


Format: LP
Cata No: VHF150
Barcode: 783881015010
First in a series of three records of library music miniatures
from composer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel
O’Sullivan (Æthenor, Ulver, This is Not This Heat, etc).
For heads, the term “library music” in 2020 might evoke
dodgy Italian gray market LPs and crate diggers hunting
for “funky breaks”—but London’s venerable KPM Music
is working with groundbreakers like O’Sullivan to open up
new avenues for composers to experiment. Electric Māyā
includes eighteen gems, beautifully arranged and recorded
specifically for the challenge of the short form. These are
fully realized tunes, not just clips from the middle of some
jam to be used on late night TV. The obvious touchstones here
are Eno’s On Land and Music For Films, but O’Sullivcan’s
touch on multiple instruments and knack for melody extend
the music far beyond mere atmospherics. There are plenty
of drifty segments, each rendered fully realized—a timely
reminder that a well-made drone or bit of ambience can
set its spell in two or three minutes rather than thirty. In a
beautiful jacket designed by O’Sullivan and Turner Prizenominee
Mark Titchner.
