LP + mp3 incl. bonus track A1. Flightplan A2. Winter A3. Foolky B1. 4_24 B2. Fever B3. Flightplan (Francis Harris Reform) Building on the already incredible collection of music so far released on Francis Harris’ Kingdoms imprint, Emil Abramyan returns with the stunning ‘Movement’ album. Abramyan is a Brooklyn based composer, musician, and producer, whose work traverses various styles and disciplines. In this release Emil shares his unique perspective by bringing together his conservatory training as a cellist and his love of electronic music and sound design. Having played the cello on every Francis Harris album, Abramyan now expands his repertoire by playing every instrument, including cello, piano, and electronics. Beginning with ‘Flightplan’, the album lifts off in sublime fashion. Brooding cellos combine with pianos before subtle rhythms unfold and introduce themselves. ‘Winter’s’ skittering rhythm is combined with pizzicato melodies, clicks and modular synth flurries. Showcasing his versatility, ‘Foolky’ is a more dance floor oriented cut - a highly percussive groove unfolds and carries along a variety of instrumentation. 4_24 also makes use of shuffling, percussive grooves layered with drone sounds, and more of Abramyan’s signature cello.’Fever’ sees the brooklynite heading in a more obviously ambient direction, building atmosphere with a mixture of close mic’d experimentation, and beautiful choral fragments.Rounding off this release, label boss Francis Harris reworks ‘Flightplan’, finding new nuances in the sublime atmosphere, and slowly building up to a subtle, understated groove that takes the track to a different place entirely.
