M A B This album goes beyond electronica. These sublime soundscapes support the minds voyage to many internal places. I found it to become even better with repetitive listening. Definitely looking forward to the next release. Thank you!

about

Solemnoire's "The Black Sea Workbook" is an intimate experience of distance and longing. Inspired by a magic summer in Varna, it conjures up the vision of a primordial world, an imagined Black Sea as it might have been millions of years ago.

Ten tracks pull you into a kaleidoscopic daydream of ancient continents overgrown with tropical green, pristine landscapes of austere beauty, and the deep body of an ocean pregnant with life. A sense of personal revelation fills you as you travel through moments of majesty, melancholy and wonder.

It is your world and your discovery. You who gazes toward distant shorelines, walks under a disapproving sun, imagines the dance of marine lifeforms, and trembles at the traces of prehuman activity. You who is permeated by a sense of longing, for the comfort of a remote world unmoved by human concerns.

And as your journey unfolds, the music never strays far. It stays close to you, like a trusted friend.

Solemnoire's musical debts are not hidden: Xela's wonderful album "For Frosty Mornings and Summer Nights"; Ulrich Schnauss' poignantly beautiful melancholy; Boards of Canada's wistful dreaminess and, faintly in the background, the breakbeat and jungle culture of the 90s.
