You’re packing for the beach – speedos, flip-flops, sun cream – but what are you going to listen to and read? Never fear. Borealis has some suggestions to elevate your ears whilst sipping that piña colada…
Håkon Stene & Kristine Tjøgersen‘s new album on Norwegian superlabel Hubro asleep, street, pipes, tones is the perfect way to lose yourself in listening, as they explore the works of American composer Michael Pisaro. Think stillness, depth and frozen sound worlds! Perfect for the cabin we think
If your beach time is troubled by thoughts of what the future of music might contain, then we recommend you quell your fears with Robert Barry‘s excellent new book The Music of the Future. It’s not a set of predictions, but rejoices in musical experiments and is a call to arms for everyone engaged in music: “to fail again, fail better.” Borealis even gets a mention!
And once you’re full of stillness and the future (and maybe pina colada), try this new album of remixes of Brazilian vocal legend Elza Soares, including some heavyweight dancefloor tunes from Borealis favourite DJ Marfox!
