Core Memory Unwound is the newest release from Christopher Tignor of the band Slow Six. Known for his use of electronic instruments, Tignor layers piano and violin seamlessly, leading the listener across fragile soundscapes that seem capable of disappearing at any moment. Tinges of Erik Satie and other minimalist composers like Philip Glass are apparent.
I would recommend this for those who are classical music fans, those who need some background music for homework, or for those who are looking to explore beyond the post-rock genre and the usual bands associated with it (Explosions in the Sky, Mono, Mogwai).
I can’t say that I’m in love with this release, but I think it is quite beautiful in some respects and is well worth a listen (especially since there are so many ways to listen for free).
