Gilded brings together the similar but distinct musical directions of West Australian experimental musicians Matt Rösner and Adam Trainer, forging a new approach to composition and sound creation that is based as much around rhythm and repetition as it is around drone and abstraction.
The title of Gilded’s debut album Terrane
comes from a geological formation that has become dislocated from its original position and sutured onto a new landscape. It retains its own distinctive form and contrasts against those around it, whilst also finding a new place, a new home. The compositions that make up this record strike at the heart of how it feels to be in a period of transition, of watching a subtle change, a shift in texture. There are moments of quietude and reflection – held together by the austere and alternately punctuated by shifts toward the uplifting and revelatory. Terrane
deftly operates around the intersections of melody and texture, movement and pause."There are
worlds in here, in this record. Microscopic examinations of simple
figures and patterns, that could fill whole sides; a focus and
determination that wraps everything up in 45 minutes. Beautiful, simple,
deep, Terrane is simply one of the best albums you’ll hear this year.
Highly recommended!" – Fluid Radio
