(La Scie Dorée - SCIE608) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Aged beauty and deceptively casual cinematic visions by Timo van Luijk. Piano, saxophone, drums, percussion, the voice of van Luijk’s grandmother, extra hiss and crackles evoking ritualistic mood swings and skeletal pulsations. Edition of 400.


Trois Mémoires Discrètes

(La Scie Dorée - SCIE912) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Three introspective instrumental compositions performed on English horn, flute, percussion, double bass, and Hammond organ, recorded and mixed by Timo van Luijk. Stripped-down with slow-moving sounds, less layering, nearing modern classical music more than drone.


Echos Pastoraux

(La Scie Dorée - SCIE811) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Open-spaced improv where Timo van Luijk's curious collection of small acoustic objects, wind instruments and field recordings cradle Andrew Chalk's sparse, watery electric guitar like a hammock. Small melodies shimmer, birds call and respond to rusty percussion, and the mood remains gentle. With percussion on “Récit Inouï” by Daisuke Suzuki and accidental sounds on “En Aval” by Ian Middleton. Edition of 400.


Frampton Comes Alive

(La Scie Dorée - SCIE1012) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

“Minimal and modal keyboards,” observes the observant Volcanic Tongue about Christoph Heemann and Timo Van Luijk’s new studio recordings from a VPRO radio session and previously unreleased tracks, “somewhere between the evocative ritual of Hermann Nitsch and the whole Canterbury sound, combining aspects of progressive rock with devotional drone…. [S]unken field recordings [make] the recording feel more like an environment you can actually explore than simply a piece of unfolding music…. A major work … that combines diary, monumental sound work, free improvisation and subtle poetics.” Edition of 400
