Add to this his recent brilliant solo CD Mother Goose's Melodies Or Sonnets From The Cradle featuring narration by England's most favorite eccentric Lord Bath, plus several projects (including one with Steve Stapleton) lined up and you have a very busy man. In fact so busy, that his latest CD is a remix project. On this poetically entitled disc (Liles loves his titles) we find a host of well-known Liles-friends such as Paul Bradley, Colin Potter, Jonathan Coleclough, Bass Communion, Aranos, Darren Tate, Irr. App., Hafler Trio, Nurse With Wound, Vidna Obmana and Freiband paying aural tribute to the man. Each of these artists re-work one of Liles tunes with often-impressive results.
At times the mixes remain close to the original gentle collages (like
the mixes by Bradley or the very recognizable piano theme Potter u
ses) or more like soundscapes such as the tracks by Coleclough, Tate, Nurse With Wound (a Soliloquy no less) and Bass Communion. Ruse and The Hafler Trio deliver trademark, more abstract versions and Freiband submits, compared to the other tracks, the noisiest piece of them all. It is interesting to note that as much as these tracks are made by individual artists with individual styles, this CD still sounds as a coherent project, which makes for enjoyable listening and is probably why this is released under the name Andrew Liles. Another intriguing and highly enjoyable addition to the already impressive Liles-catalogue. (FK)
By now affirmed as a uniquely talented soundscaper, for this occasion Andrew Liles called fifteen artists to the task of remixing his own music. The few lines of a review are not enough to decode the complex messages disclosed by these disfigured contemplations, as Liles' work is truly mythical in its impossibility of being pigeonholed. His overtones are bathed in engulfing frequencies, sapiently interspersed with ironic convolutions and aural descriptions of transfigured wonderlands where rabbits eat Alices spitting their pieces in kaleidoscopic whirlwinds. That said, at least four remodelers of shadowy tales stand out in excellence; Irr. App. (Ext.) emphasizes the nostalgic and the sublime, Hafler Trio transmutes everything he puts his hands on into grey ice, Nurse With Wound seem to include Liles in their lineup while Colin Potter's remix somehow reminds of Salvador Dali's surrealist pictures. But all of this music brims with extravagant views on forms of life we aren't likely to meet often.
