Ben Chatwin

Staccato Signals

village green


Released: 6th Jul 2018



Released: 6th Jul 2018


With the smouldering aggression of Ben Frost or The Haxan Cloak & dark menace of Max Richter's cinemascapes but laced with melodic glimmers of light, this is a record that truly speaks our language.

The 3rd album from Chatwin under his own name (he previously recorded as Talvihorros) is daring, vivid & emotionally-charged, unshackled from a traditional sense of structure & genre. Straddling the electronic & acoustic worlds, what emerges is more than just a meeting of the two. Originally conceived as a purely electronic record using primarily analogue & modular synthesisers, the introduction of a string quartet allows Chatwin to explore innovative ways to fold, bury & combine both strings & brass into his industrial, noisy & chaotic electronic template. Harsh, all-encompassing, disorienting, jagged, textured genius.
