The Blue Notebooks
CD on Fat Cat
Cat No: CD1304 , Stk Ref 70398

Released on: 26 February 2004

After albums by Set Fire To Flames and Sylvain Chauveau, Max Richter’s ‘The Blue Notebooks’ is the 4th release on FatCat’s 130701 imprint, an outlet for more more orchestrated, instrumental material. . ‘The Blue Notebooks’ is Max Richter’s second solo album, a distinctive and adventurous work that is beautifully recorded and cinematic in scope. •Opening with a text from Franz Kafka over a sparse piano melody, the album moves through gorgeous, heart-wrenching string swells of ‘On The Nature Of Daylight’ through to sparse but lyrical piano pieces; hazy, swirling atmospherics, avalanche pulse-beats and partially occluded melodies that recall Aphex Twin’s ‘Ambient Works’ albums; and to reverberant organ / choir recordings. Utilising piano, cello, violin and viola, alongside electronic beats (made using a variety of antique electronics and Reaktor), spoken word passages and the occasional field recording, other sounds were generated via old guitar pedals and vocoders.
