Both prolific composers working within the field of modern composition/ new electronic music, Yair Elazar Glotman and Mats Erlandsson’s second collaborative album, Emanate is a powerful and stunningly executed work that uses a fantastic ensemble cast (inc. Lucy Railton, Maria W Horn, Viktor Orri Arnarson, Sara Fors, Liam Byrne) to explore their idea of a “displaced sound, combining electronic and acoustic sources to create a rich and ambiguous composite music that sounds neither clearly electronic nor acoustic, existing instead in some in-between space”.
Berlin-based Glotman worked closely with late Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, writ-
ing additional film music for ‘Mandy’ and co-composing the score of Last and First Men (just released on Deutsche Gramophon). He also contributed to scores by Hildur Guðnadóttir (inc. her Oscar-winning ‘Joker’ soundtrack), Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury, Ben Frost, Dustin O’Halloran and Hauschka. An assistant at the world-renowned EMS studio, Erlandsson is part of the vibrantly reemerging field of drone music in Stockholm, including the likes of Kali Malone, Maria W Horn and Ellen Arkbro, and has released on XKatedral, Posh Isolation and Portals Editions.
Emanate is a bold, deep work that dilates time and exists in a blurred interzone between clas- sical and experimental electronic music music worlds. Allow yourself the time and space to be immersed in its currents and depths and ‘Emanate’ will amply reward your attention.
