RR: Combining the talents of P.Maze, one half of noise/techno duo Orphan Swords, with fellow Brussels-based producer and musician Otto Lindholm, ‘Where The Wolf Has Been Seen’ is a meditative and claustrophobic work for electronics and double bass. ‘Where The Wolf Has Been Seen’ will be available on deluxe 180g black vinyl housed in a reverse board heavyweight sleeve with spot varnish and download code, limited to 300, in addition to limited CD and digital formats. The four parts evolve and spread outwards, throbbing bass drones colliding with slowly bowed arcs of keening strings that make for a deeply immersive listening experience. ‘Where The Wolf Has Been Seen’ explores the boundaries of the modern classical and electronic disciplines, with slowly shifting and expanding compositions that thrive on the tension between. Mastered by James Plotkin and cut for vinyl at The Carvery, East London. Cover photography by Solal Israel. Otto Lindholm : Brussels-based producer evolving between drone music and modern classical , Otto Lindholm employs an array of loop pedals and electronic effects in partnership with his double bass to produce a range of rich and voluptuous tones, emotions, and elongated melodies. Otto Lindholm came to light in 2016 with his debut eponymous LP (Icarus), a "stunningly beautiful" record (FACT). His second LP ‘Alter’ (2017 Gizeh), was introduced on BBC6 by Mary Anne Hobbs as an "Extraordinary new LP. Deeply meditative". Early 2018, he opened the new Houndstooth compilation "In Death’s Dream Kingdom". « The set opens with Otto Lindholm's Cain - all Ligeti / Xenakis style doom and dirge and cooling solar flares ». (THE WIRE) « Cain by Otto Lindholm with its tortured voices and shards of cello, is like William Blake soundtracked by Arthur Russell ». (MOJO). Upon invitation of Stuart Argabright, he has collaborated on the new Black Rain EP that is due on Blackest Ever Black at the end of this year. P.Maze is half of the duo Orphan Swords. Described as “a brutal hypnosis” by Ransom Note, Orphan Swords music has been released on Aurora Borealis, Desire Records, Clan Destine and Instruments Of Discipline. The duo has collaborated with Ike Yard, Helm, SHXCXCHCXSH, Emptyset, and many more. Earlier this year, Orphan Swords was invited to live score the Walter Van Beirendonck show at Fashion Week Paris. That meeting resulted into a techno-driven menacing album to be released in 2019. The art cover curated by Walter Van Beirendonck will present a painting of Wouter Steel. Next to the furious maximal output of Orphan Swords, P.Maze is exploring a quieter and much more minimal side. The collaboration with Otto Lindholm represents his first official output under that moniker. A solo debut album is in the works for 2019.
