"Short Stories" - Human Centerpiece

“Short Stories” is a collection of five tracks that have a special meaning to the Human Centerpiece in some way. Indeed, as the title suggests, there are personable characteristics to these tracks, of which have been constructed in ways that express the complexity of the feelings behind the stories brought to us by the Texan producer. The result is an EP laden with songs that are each conceptual in their own right.

"Cold Summer" - Roshi

Roshi’s first album release with Aviary Bridge Records is an evolving and boundless project which explores various sectors of the electronic music scene. An album filled with contrasts, “Cold Summer” is indeed an apt description for the release. In the background, nostalgic summery vibes combine with gentle icy ambience. In the foreground, organic instruments gently play alongside aggressive synthesised basses. One of “Cold Summer”’s most notable characteristics is it’s spaciousness; this is an album that should be listened to on headphones for the full intended experience.

"Dormin" - Human Centerpiece

What is immediately noticeable when you listen to Human Centerpiece’s debut album “Dormin” is the sheer amount of variety on the release. The texan producer has kept an open mind when it comes to genre, incorporating characteristics from a full spectrum of his music taste, rather than limiting it for continuity’s sake. However, despite this, “Dormin” is anything but lacking continuity. Human Centerpiece has kept it tightly woven together with attributes known only to him; a masterful control of dynamics and space, as well a hint of sweet, gloomy darkness.

"Summer" Compilation Album

Aviary Bridge Records’ fourth seasonal compilation album, “Summer” released on 31th August 2018, brings the series around full circle as we begin to enter Autumn once again. For the final seasonal challenge, Aviary Bridge Records once again gave their roster a theme and an image to base their music around. This time the challenge was to capture the essence of a summer evening, where the sociable nights are long and comfortably warm due to the lingering sunlight. 

"The Fourth Monkey" - Nomenclature

Nomenclature (aka Espen Skagen) started experimenting with musical instruments aged nine and was producing his own music by fourteen, eventually leading to a career in the film industry as both a filmmaker and composer. Naturally, his music is heavily inspired by producers like Jon Hopkins, Burial, Nils Frahm and Jamie. Favouring the sounds of trip hop, trap and synth pop, he textures his music with a combination of heavy beats and bittersweet melodies .
