Description:
This is a group for fans and friends of brilliant beautiful and dark acoustic folk music as featured on the compilation "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings"!



"Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" ist eine Zusammenstellung von seltenem Wert. Dies ist sie nicht allein aufgrund der Tatsache, dass sie eine von nur wenigen Konzept-Compilations überhaupt ist, also Zusammenstellungen, denen ein inhaltlicher Leitgedanke zu eigen ist und deren Auswahl der vertretenen Künstler einer strengen Selektion unterlag. Nein, "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" enthält auf zwei CDs und einer Gesamtspielzeit von über 100 Minuten Stücke sämtlicher Protagonisten sowie der vielversprechendsten Newcomer eines namenlosen Genres, das sich über die (überwiegend) akustische Vertonung von Naturszenarien und -impressionen bzw. in der Natur gespiegelten persönlichen Empfindungen definiert. Diese Hochachtung und eine in ihrem Grunde tief romantische magisch-mystische Wahrnehmung der Natur sind der gemeinsame Nenner aller hier enthaltenen Künstler und thematische Grundlage ihrer Beiträge. Die Tatsache, dass fast alle enthaltenen Lieder exklusiv für diese Zusammenstellung geschrieben und aufgenommen wurden oder seltene, nicht mehr erhältliche Stücke sind, unterstreicht einmal mehr den außerordentlichen Charakter der Veröffentlichung.
Besonders hervorzuheben auf "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" ist mit Sicherheit der Beitrag Empyriums, die erste neue Aufnahme des Ensembles seit vier Jahren und der eindrucksvolle Beginn einer neuen Schaffensphase. Auch die Genre-Begründer Ulver sind mit einer äußerst seltenen Aufnahme aus dem Jahr 1997 vertreten: Ihr Lied 'Synen' war bislang nur auf einer Underground-Compilation in kleiner Auflage erhältlich und ist das wahrscheinlich am meisten gesuchte Lied der Norweger. Doch auch die vorliegenden Lieder von Gruppen wie October Falls, Nest oder Neun Welten, Künstlern also, die in den vergangenen zehn Jahren die Identität des Genres konstituiert haben und zu wesentlichen Bezugspunkten für Liebhaber dunkler, naturbezogener Akustikmusik wurden, oder von nahezu unbeschriebenen Blättern wie dem britischen Projekt Nhor oder Syven aus Finnland überzeugen qualitativ auf ganzer Linie und müssen sich nicht hinter den Gründungsvätern des Genres verstecken. Das zauberhafte Cover-Gemälde von Fursy Teyssier (Les Discrets) rundet schließlich diese Veröffentlichung ab, die schon allein aufgrund ihres musikalischen Inhalts ein einmaliges und konkurrenzloses Tondokument ist und mit Sicherheit für lange Zeit bleiben wird.

"Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" is a compilation of rare value – not only because of the fact that this is one of the few conceptual compilations that are based around a central theme and where the choice of artists present was subjected to a rigid selection. No, "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" is a two-CD collection with a playing time of over 100 minutes that unites all the main players and the most promising newcomers of a nameless genre that is defined by (mostly) acoustic musical settings of nature's sceneries and impressions, or of personal sentiments mirrored in nature. This profound respect and a deeply romantic magical and mystical perception of nature are the common denominator of all the featured artists and the thematic foundation of their contributions. The fact that nearly all of the songs included here are either exclusive to this project or rare tracks that aren't otherwise available anymore serves to emphasize the extraordinary character of this release.
One of the highlights on "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" is certainly Empyrium's contribution – the ensemble's first new recording in four years and the impressive beginning of a new creative period. Also featured are the genre's founding fathers, Ulver, with a very rare recording from 1997: their track 'Synen' was only featured on a very limited underground compilation and is probably the Norwegians' most sought-after song. The contributions by bands such as October Falls, Nest, or Neun Welten – artists who have forged the genre's identity in the last ten years and have become major points of reference for lovers of dark, nature-attuned acoustic music – or by as-yet unknown quantities such as the British project Nhor or Syven from Finland are also delivering the goods and certainly bear comparison with the genre's founding fathers. The enchanting cover artwork courtesy of Fursy Teyssier (Les Discrets) tops off a release that, because of its musical content, is certainly going to remain a unique and unrivalled audio document for a long time.

    To be honest...I believe its one of the best albums ever recorded. Every song of this brilliant album is special to me, especially Kausienranta by Tenhi, a magical song. Well, every piece is just magical and special in its own kind... I am sure this CD will be present during in my whole life, as one of these albums I will never forget... By the way, this CD was a great chance for me to get to know so many great bands and artists... In fact, I am a big fan of many of them right now.
