B2 Of Norway - Song For Ava (low quality) by Connaisseur Recordings published on 2011/11/17 08:27:09 +0000 Preview of "Welcome Ava" by various artists Label: Connaisseur Recordings Release Date: 1st of February, 2012 Format : 12" / Digital Cat-No : cns047-6 © 2012 Connaisseur Recordings www.connaisseur-recordings.com The Connaisseur family welcomes its youngest member: Ava Myra Flitsch. The daughter of Hilary and Alex Flitsch was born November 15th, 2011 and both the parents and good friends of the label celebrate this miracle with this release. All participating artists were asked to produce a very personal piece of music. The style was left up to the artists, resulting in a beautifully mixed batch of great tracks. The intro track „Hello!“ by dOP & Masomenos features a little vocal snippet as a salutation by Masomenos' Adrien's son and it is an atmospheric, soundscapish and beatless tool. "Rave Forever Together", which is the dictum inside of Hilary's and Alex' wedding rings, is the clubbiest track on this record. dOP created a brilliant pop-ish club moment with it, which is dominated by a lively bassline, discoish cowbells and catchy vocoder vox. In persian language, Ava means sound or melody, however in old-frisian, it means water. Knowing this, you can tell what was Patrick Chardronnet's inspiration, when you listen to his "Source Of Life". This track is a pure beauty, with wonderful melodies and sub-basses. Not really for the club, but an alluring listening trip. For the last track of this selection, "Song For Ava" by Of Norway, the Olso duo played live bass and guitar to create this wonderful piece of music hitting a bull's eye for this special release. With "I know you're there, makes my heart sing" they created the message of this whole release and the emotions everbody wants to transport with it. With its ambientish atmosphere, the “Song For Ava" marks the quiet highlight of "Welcome Ava". Additionally to the music, all persons participating in the release wrote a personal note to welcome Ava to this world. All notes will the printed on the backside of the record. The main idea behind this release, is to hand Ava several copies of the record in a few years, when she is old enough to understand. We will tell her, that this record was released to commemorate her birth and that it was shipped throughout the world. Perhaps people will have danced to it in Tokyo, while others will simply have listened to it in the sun in São Paulo. All of her personal copies will be handsigned by the artists. She can then give a record to people important to her on her journey of life. Much love to all of you!
