Fm-Ra ‎– Some Kind Of Forest (2011)

  • Avant-garde
  • Art music 
  • World music 
  • Ethnic music

Comment: it is way too problematic to tag this album of 4 compositions because of involving way too a little and on the other side much unusual and not quite daily sounds. It was recorded at home employing Audacity and the instruments were a kalimba, one rain stick, and a storm imitator with some delay effects. Given that kalimba can be categorized as an instrument in the ethnic music world and its use in the popular music is quite limited the recent outing can be pigeonholed both in the compartments of experimental/avant-garde, and ethnic music. Moreover, one can discern very closeness to the nature as if being played under the sunny (or cloudy – it does not make difference though) sky somewhere nearby the forest. In fact, the title suggests it. The elemental touch can always be welcomed. The result is simple, pure, and even divine. The nature has been a topic for the artist because some days after the release of this issue he issued another similar album Oceans & Waves. The issue is a part of the discography of Rejected Netlabel.
