Mandy OST + Transference

Jóhann Jóhannsson´s final score before his untimely death was to the film Mandy by Panos Cosmatos. The record and film is now released. Read a conversation between Pitchfork and Pepijn (Kreng), Randall Dunn + manager Tim Husom about how it came to be finished. Both Kreng and Yair Elazar Glotman were involved in forming the soundtrack album as Jóhann passed before it was compiled. The OST is out via Invada and is a beast of a record that we can highly recommend.

Almost at the same time, Kreng has finished the massive task of creating the score and sound design to game Transference, which is a collaboration between Ubisoft and film company Spectrevision. Transference aims to bridge the gap between movies and games and is available in VR (PlayStation®VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive) and traditional platforms (PS4, Xbox One and PC). Sounds exciting, and we hope to be able to play it sometime.

Monique (Sonic Pieces) talks to Headphone Commute about her record collection

Recently, while spending a couple days in Zurich we stumbled upon OOR Records, a super nice and very well curated shop. Not only did we find a rare copy of Midori Hirano´s "Minor Planet" LP there, but they also played an intriguing record while we were browsing around, which we found out is "Lepidoptera" by Lena Platonos - a reissue of an album from the 80ies. We ended up buying it, and it will probably always remind us of Zurich and our visit to OOR. 

If you want to read more about how we like to discover records and other thoughts about vinyl, read the interview Monique did for Headphone Commute about her vinyl collection.

There´s also another interview with Rauelsson out on Spanish webzine Atonal. Raúl goes deeper into the background of his new album as well as locations and his musical evolvement. It´s in Spanish, but easily readable with a translation tool for the ones who speaks a different language.

These pictures were taken last weekend when Rauelsson was performing a special release concert for Mirall close to his home in Spain. He was joined by Tatu Rönkkö, Anne Müller, Peter Broderick and even a girls choir.
Tatu was also playing solo using his feet as you can see on the 2nd picture. His debut album Spheres will be out real soon on Sonic Pieces.
