MD 048: AMANDUS SCHAAP & EVERT KRAMER – DONE

We are proud to present you a limited tape release, by two artists from the Netherlands.

Born out of a deep friendship for ambient music Amandus Schaap and Evert Kramer joined forces to create “Done”. A beautiful piece of ambient work, full of fragile moments blessed with melancholia and hidden soundmessages.

Evert Kramer plays classic piano surrounded by different kind of ambient and noise sounds by Amandus Schaap, known for his Moniker Equal Stones. The album evolves out of tiny piano themes, harmonies and different layers of guitar drones and field recordings. Although the tracks have melancholic titles, there is always a feeling of hope in the tracks. It is this divergency that brings the album to the point.

The mastering by Rafael Anton Irisarri brings out a very warm atmosphere, which perfectly fits for this tape release.

The tape is limited to 50 copies housed in thick cardboard o-cards. The tapes come in a beautiful green transparent colour with a full printed A side.

  1. This is a very fine hommage to the golden years of ambient music, and the music wins by not relying on sweet sounds only. The field recordings and slightly dissonant drones add to the magic. The idea with the cassettes has a time travel effect of its own kind, hope you habe to look for a second edition.

    Best, Michael Engelbrecht

    (Will do an hour on Roger Eno‘s music in my next long radio night at the Deutschlandfunk, and possibly use one of your tracks as a kind of introduction – if not, it will be broadcasted in my June show).
