We are extremely proud to release this brand new work by one of our favorite groups out there, Rumforskning
. Danny and Mads create the kind of 'sounds of impermanence' that strike to the core of the GoS aesthetic: minimal, haunting, but always evolving, however subtly.
Regarding this work, we asked Rumsforskning
to provide us insight into the inspiration behind Himmelhvælv
R: "When we look at the night sky we get a sense of space as a very dark and empty place. However space is much more than what we can make sense of. Dark matter/energy are just words used to hint at a description of what is ultimately unperceivable to us. Himmelhvælv draws a line between the shortcomings of both scientific description and religious myth, and portrays space as an abstract place ruled by unfamiliar shapes."
GoS: "How would you summarize Rumforskning's
sonic approach on this work?"
R: "Despite Denmark being a fairly small place, we are located in separate cities when we make the music. One of us usually starts out with a very minimal sketch and we let it exchange back and forth between us with more layers getting added at each place until a sort of critical mass is reached, and we begin to think of it as a finished track. We always strive to keep the layers within a rather narrow aesthetics, which allows us to claim the music portrays some kind of astronomical event. It's the final interpretability of the music as a metaphor for outer space that makes all the difference to us when we judge the quality of a work in progress."
