Reseña de álbum

Four years after the last proper Arovane album — a collaboration with Phonem and a compilation of previously 12"-only material intervened — Lilies will also allegedly be followed by another stretch of relative inactivity for producer Uwe Zahn. Just as 2000's Tides followed a trip to France, Lilies was made after some time spent in Japan, though there isn't a whole lot of evidence of that; excepting a few slight samples and one contribution from vocalist Kazumi, the album is very much a continuation of Tides, with many of the same motifs present (fluttering harpsichords, tingling hi-hats, soft-smear strings, fine keyboard patterns). Bursting with florescent melodies propelled by creative beat-making, these nine tracks (in a very tight, digestible 37 minutes) reaffirm that, despite Zahn's beginnings as a follower and scores of nondescript peers working in roughly the same field, the producer has carved out a sound of his own — one that's as discernible as Boards of Canada's oft-filched (but never successfully cloned) take on downtempo IDM. The worst aspect of Zahn's period of silence might not be the silence itself, but the inevitable crop of laptop producers who will attempt — and fail — to fill the void.

Moody Masterpiece

Zahn proves to be great at combining melodic phrases with hypnotic beats, and for that I am thankful. After I purchased this album it immediately became one of my favorites. The music itself is emotional yet very distant and not many other artists come close to that finely balanced juxtaposition. It certainly brings to mind Boards of Canada and other German IDM artists, but Arovane's music is more concise and poignant than some of his downtempo counterparts. It's unfortunate that Zahn's other releases as Arovane are nearly impossible to come by, and that makes me cherish this album all the more.

Beautiful IDM

Quite possibly one of the most beautiful albums I have ever listened to. "Instant Gods Out of the Box" is amazing. If you ever wondered what Autechre would have sounded like had they not gone into "noise", then check out Arovane. I read that he was giving up music. I hope this is only a rumor.

minor key songwriting at its best

This is great stuff. These songs should be in a movie. Or maybe they are and I don't know. Listen to this and you can learn a thing or two about composing slow melodic minor key songs.

Biografía

Nacido/a: Hameln, Germany, 1965

Género: Electrónica

Años de actividad: '90s, '00s

Berlin's Uwe Zahn released his first tracks as the Arovane EP on the Din label, which also released the first of German dub minimalist Stefan Betke's work as Pole. Stylistically, Arovane's work hearkens back to the insular melodic electro of early Autechre, combining interesting, highly syncopated machine box rhythms with warm, delicate synth textures that evoke a gauzy, somewhat nostalgic mood contrasted by the sharpness of the rhythms. Indeed, while Autechre's Amber has become a touchpoint of sorts...
