Harold Nono - "Ideeit" (BS032)
Absolutely gorgeous stuff! An excellent LP!
[Phil Vickery, In-Tune, BCFM]
Bearsuit mainstay Harold Nono returns – and once again, he’s come up trumps. Nono’s latest effort is as inventive as ever. An intriguing album that is – as you’d reasonably expect from Harold Nono – difficult to place, but a lot easier to dig
[‘Tahiik’] a bit of a gem ghosted in shadowy noir trimmings and spy themed mosaics all presided over by brief moments of the kind of sinister edgy chill that recalls Budd and Barry
[The Sunday Experience]
All of these twelve tracks together make up a highly varied album, but it works very well. Nono has crafted an excellent album of moody, orchestral tunes
Such a good album! The quality is superb
[Tom Byrne, Primal Radio]
This is a very earnest sounding music, showing that Harold Nono is more a composer in the classical sense than for instance an outsider pop artist. If you are looking for serious music with an incredible richness of sound, then Harold Nono might just be the artist you have been looking for.
[The] Twelve tracks show the interesting union of electronic experiments and melodic textures.
The tracks on this album are complex thematically, but yet melodic and accessible. Evoking different moods and textures Nono brings together a master work, worthy of any concert hall
[Floorshime Zipper Boots]
The Bernard Hermannesque ‘Tahiik’, a serpentining cinematic exercise in library-style music that would sound great behind some Hitchcock visuals or alongside your Laurie Johnson Avengers soundtracks
[It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine]
The quality of sound is amazing. In this world of digital distortion, this purity really lets the music breathe
An absolutely beautiful album, wonderfully orchestrated electronica punctuated by euphoric instrumentals and gorgeously downbeat string passages. An awesomely nuanced Nono masterpiece.
Another really cool release - quirky, different, engaging - just the stuff I'm looking for
It's wonderful! Beautifully crafted
[Michael Valentine West]
"Harold Nono/Hidekazu Wakabayashi " (BS009) :
“Harold Nono/Hidekazu Wakabayashi belongs in any person’s collection that enjoys eclectic electronic/acoustic music in the vein of Brian Eno or Aphex Twin. Nono and Wakabayashi make an excellent duo”.
“A truly beautiful instrumental album”
[the Sunday Experience]
"The two musicians play keyboards, guitar, melodica, beat machines and much more, making every single cut an experience of joyous discovery" [DisAgreement]
“its an absolutely fine quality that runs through these songs. Eleven excellent songs, moody, melancholic and sometimes cheerful, an excellent springtime sunday afternoon release”
“The record keeps the balance for the most part with an outrageously timeless charm and introspectiveness”
