Legowelt Album: Folk Triumfator

Medieval meets con­tem­po­rary in this col­lab­o­ra­tive effort. 

Hot off the heels of his lat­est solo album, Tips For Life, Legow­elt presents anoth­er full length – this time under the col­lab­o­ra­tive project Zand­voort & Uilen­bal. Work­ing along­side medieval music expert Jimi Hellinga the pair appro­pri­ate his­tor­i­cal instru­ments such as a 19th cen­tu­ry Vic­to­ri­an har­mo­ni­um, a medieval hur­dy gur­dy, an elec­tro acoustic thumb harp and a mid 20th cen­tu­ry Ger­man Mix­tur Trau­to­ni­um. These are cross bred with the usu­al arse­nal of con­tem­po­rary elec­tron­ic instru­ments and sea­soned with some sin­is­ter poet­ry in their North Sea coast tem­ple of sen­so­ry son­ic delights.’

We can write how con­cep­tu­al and arty this all is but let’s just say this is hard­core dark ambi­ent with lots of medieval drone space jazz influ­ences to trip your mind out into a region where time and your opin­ions cease to exist.
