Title: The Instrumental Music Thread
Post by: Stryfe on November 17, 2009, 04:13:44 AM

The Instrumental Music Thread

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip00271.jpg)


Definitions vary, but instrumental music is basically music without lyrical content or with complete absence of vocals. It can be found in most genres and bands with vocalists sometimes produce purely instrumental tunes. Some genres like post-rock and forms of classical music are almost defined by their instrumentally driven approach.

...

So here you can Pimp and discuss your favorite instrumental artists and songs. Pimp to your hearts content, or just watch me go at it.

Just a reminder, do not share any files (of the non-free kind, obviously) by western artists here.

...

Most of the music I listen to is instrumental, and this thread was a long time coming. So I thought I'd put my 4000th post to proper use. :pimp:

I'll get this thing started by introducing just a couple of my all-time favorites.

Boards of Canada

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boards_of_Canada
Boards of Canada (commonly abbreviated BoC) are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Mike Sandison (born June 1, 1970) and Marcus Eoin (born July 21, 1971). They are signed with Warp Records and have released several works on that label with little advertising and few interviews, while also having an elusive and obscure back-catalogue of releases on their self-run Music70 label. They have also recorded a few minor works under the alias Hell Interface.

Boards of Canada's music is reminiscent of the warm, scratchy, artificial sounds of 1970s media and contains themes of childhood, nostalgia and the natural world. Mike and Marcus have mentioned the documentary films of the National Film Board of Canada, from which the group's name is derived, as a source of inspiration.

My all-time favorite chill-out music. Sad that they haven't released anything since 2006. :(

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jóhann_Jóhannsson
Jóhann Jóhannsson (born 1969) is an Icelandic-born musician, composer and producer. He is a co-founder of Kitchen Motors in Reykjavík, the art organization/think tank/record label which specializes in instigating collaborations, promoting concerts and exhibitions, performances, chamber operas, producing films, books and radio shows based on the ideals of experimentation, collaboration and the search for new art forms.

Jóhann founded the Apparat Organ Quartet in 1999, who have played various European festivals to great acclaim. Jóhann has also produced and written music with artists as diverse as Marc Almond (Stranger Things album), Barry Adamson and Pan Sonic, The Hafler Trio, Magga Stina and many others. He has written music for theatre, documentaries and soundtrack music for several feature films. Jóhann is a member of the Icelandic electronica supergroup Evil Madness

Jóhannsson utilizes a mixture of electronic and classical instrumentation. He has done a number of soundtracks and studio albums. While most of his work is awe-inspiring, his 2008 album Fordlândia is particularly noteworthy, and I reviewed it in the top music of 2008 thread like this:


Quote from: http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=17903.msg534109#msg534109
Grabbing the number one spot in my rankings for the year is the Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson with Fordlândia, an orchestral behemoth and a musical journey inspired by real stories (http://www.johannjohannsson.com/fordlandia/) of failed utopias and mystical scientists. It is a masterful symphony consisting of several movements with varying mood and instrumentation, all building slowly towards an explosive finale. Fordlândia has that rare ability to transport the listener in place and time into a fascinating, almost fantastical world it weaves and creates with music alone.
And I mean it, too! :P

Can't have one of these without mentioning Mogwai.

Quote
Mogwai are a Scottish rock band from Glasgow. Formed by Stuart Braithwaite and Dominic Aitchison in 1995, Mogwai have since become one of the most influential and best known names in post-rock.[1] They typically compose instrumental, sometimes lengthy guitar-based pieces in the post-rock tradition. They are usually focused around the elaboration of a single theme and are known for dynamic contrast, melodic bass guitar riffs, their use of guitar distortion and effects.

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Broderick
Peter Broderick (b. January 20 1987) is an American musician and composer from Portland, Oregon. He has released solo material under his own name, been a member of Efterklang and, played with several ensembles as a session musician.

Broderick was born in the state of Oregon in 1987. He learned a number of musical instruments whilst at school, and went on to become a session musician, playing violin, banjo, musical saw, and mandolin on recordings by M. Ward, Zooey Deschanel, Dolorean and others. He played and toured with numerous groups, including Horse Feathers, Norfolk & Western, Loch Lomond and Laura Gibson. In mid 2007, Broderick joined the Danish ensemble Efterklang in Copenhagen to join their touring band after the release of their album Parades. After touring, he released a mini album of solo piano music, Docile, on the Swedish label Kning Disk, as well as a 7″, Retreat/Release, his first full-length album of piano and string based compositions, Float, and an orchestral concept album, Music for Falling From Trees, on the British label Erased Tapes.

His music often incorporates vocals but I've fallen in love with his two instrumental albums, Float and the recent Music For Falling From Trees. They're just so relaxing.

2004 - Same Same but Different
2005 - Easily Misunderstood
2008 - Goodbye Melody Mountain

With a name like that, you better be awesome. And they are.

Their excellent Easily Misunderstood remains my most played album at last.fm (notice a theme here? lol) right over Neil on Impression's L'Oceano... it's just one brilliant tune after another. Here are the opening tracks that give a slight idea about the chops of this band, although the full album is chock full of more variation:

Quote
Chris Alfaro is Free the Robots. The genre-defying artist pulls together heavy doses of traditional jazz, Hip-Hop, psychedelic sounds, Indian spice, progressive melodies, obscure samples and devastating drums into a rich pot of sound. His techniques create harmony between genres with the blending obscure samples with analog and digital compositions. Based out of Santa Ana, CA, Free The Robots started as a side project by Alfaro in 2003 while also playing with different bands, producing MC’s, and DJing full time. Having worked with so many different styles of music, Free the Robots brought everything together under one roof, allowing further exploration through sampling. To go along with the samples, Alfaro adds other sounds with controllers, and live instruments (keys, guitar, turntables) to keep the blend of sampling and original composition balanced. Free the Robots has reached a worldwide audience since its humble beginnings and found its place among the top artists in this genre. Since the development of Alfaro’s live show, Free the Robots has shared the stage with the likes of Prefuse 73, Afrika Bambaataa, Flying Lotus, and Devotchka.

Hey guys,

Obviously we aren't quite fond of updating, but we thought we'd let you guys know what's going on. 

First we have been scoring a few films.  One just recently came out. A documentary called The Wall directed by Ricardo Martinez.  Go check it out!  I'll let you guys know when the others drop.

Secondly, I (Amman) have started a side project with one my good friends Josh called Amman/Josh (how fitting right?).  We just came back from recording in Iceland so the EP should be coming pretty soon.  Look out for it!

Thirdly, Abbasi Brothers have some really good news.  We are just about to enter the studio.   We have a few really strong tracks that will hopefully eat your brain.

Peace out,

The Black Dog
homepage (http://www.theblackdogma.com/tbd/)

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip00286.jpg)

Quote
Adopting the common pseudonym for depression as their name, The Black Dog are often credited with “inventing” the “idm” style of music, in producing a style of dance music equally enjoyable in the comfort of one’s living room. While their work was showered with praise from a great number of club DJs, the DJs themselves rarely played their tracks on the dancefloor.

The group was founded by Ken Downie along with Ed Handley and Andy Turner, who had already been producing music under the Plaid moniker. In 1989, they were unable to find a label to back their releases and had to start their own, Black Dog Productions. Their first full-length album, Bytes, was released in 1992 on WARP Records, the label later to publish records from some of the most notable of IDM artists, such as Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Autechre. Their music was often produced under a number of different names, such as Close Up Over, Xeper, Atypic, I.A.O., Balil and Discordian Popes. These were often names for the different projects of the three artists.

Later on, Ed and Andy broke off from Black Dog Productions, to work full-time on Plaid. Ken Downie continued working The Black Dog on his own for a while, taking it easy, later to return to music production with Richard and Martin Dust, owners of the label “Dust Science Recordings”. Since, they have released eight EPs and two full-length albums.

Old geezers still going strong. Actually I'm digging their latest two releases, Radio Scarecrow & Further Vexations the most.

Bosques de mi Mente
homepage (http://artistasdelmundo.info/bosquesdemimente/) / myspace (http://www.myspace.com/bosquesdemimente)

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip00291.jpg)

Quote
Bosques de mi Mente is my solo project. It started by mid 2007 when, for diverse reasons, I decide on creating music on my own, to reflect some restlessness and feelings that were in my mind. The idea behind “Toy Trains” was rounding my head for some time. For me, it was an attempt at capturing the melancholy i felt trying to remember -without much success- my childhood, a happier epoch of which I keep very sparse remnants…

From the beginning, I knew that Bosques de mi Mente would be a project of free music, available to all. I started composing in a rush, like a Blade Runner’s replicant who suddenly discovers an old memory he believes his own, and wants to keep it just before it drives away and dissapears.”Toy Trains” was released in July of that same year.

With “Toy Trains” completed, I started getting more and more interest in the effect on ambient and background sounds over music, as much as the “LoFi” aesthetic. That led me to the idea of doing an album in which I would try to express with music the effect that some ambients, sounds and situations I had on my mind, and so “Lo-Fi” was born.

The creation process of “Lo-Fi” was very frenzy also, and it was completed in less than three months.

Some personal changes followed the release of “LoFi”, and I found myself lost in a big city of concrete, cement and steel (Madrid), far from my family and friends, ready to start a new life. The isolation, loneliness and distance from my friends, family has caused several mood states, and the fact of being reduced to just my piano and my guitar (just for a question of space) provoked the appearance of “Ruido Blanco”, a expression of all that feelings, needs and frustrations in my throat willing to get out… a more basic, harsh and raw release, but a much more expressive one for me.

With “Ruido Blanco” completed in April 2008, I entered a state of emptiness that led me to put the project in an temporary hiatus, allowing me to have some rest.

After a year of deserved hiatus, I felt like composing again for “Bosques de mi Mente”. Coinciding with a happier chapter in my life, I decided to start a conceptual work about a book I’ve always been fascinated by. The idea was trying to “connect” with the emotion of every section and write a song about it, while giving the work a full cohesion as a conceptual unit, both in the theme and the music, and see where I could go experimenting with the same melodic, harmonic and ryhtmic ideas, motifs etc. The result of all this process is “Inocencia”, the first “Bosques de mi Mente” album recorded entirely with digital resources (mac and logic pro), but as always with (mostly) real instruments.

Beautiful stuff. Mostly solitary piano, but sometimes accompanied with (or replaced by) strings, electronic samples and other real instruments. He just came out with a new album, Inocencia. I reviewed his 2008 album Ruido Blanco:

Bosques de mi Mente is a solo project of a Spanish pianist-composer. The theme of Ruido Blanco (which translates to White Noise) is loneliness and isolation, feelings that stem from his move to Madrid, leaving all his friends and family behind. The result is one of the most simply beautiful releases I've heard in a long time. The music consists mostly of Bosques' sad piano melodies, often accompanied by a violin. The occasional samples, along with some moments of static and feedback bring some variety to the sometimes overbearing sadness. This gem is available for free download at Clinical Archives.

Free? You heard right. In fact, all of his four albums are available for free download via his site (http://artistasdelmundo.info/bosquesdemimente/?page_id=5) under Creative Commons License (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/es/deed.en_US). Best things in life are free, no?

Quote
Lusine is the brainchild of Jeff McIlwain for his visceral, melodic vision of abstract electronic music. Having attended Cal Arts to study 20th century electronic music and sound design for music and film, he has since recorded for labels such as !K7/MAS, Hymen, Delikatessen and Isophlux. Since making the move to Ghostly in 2003, Lusine has released “Push” , “Flat” Remixes, and the “Inside/Out” EP, as well as the stunning and widely-lauded “Serial Hodgepodge” full-length from 2004. He is one of the foremost American producers in the abstract field and an artist with a boundless future in his craft.

In 2006 Jeff McIlwain did remixes for Alex Smoke (Soma), Alex Under (Apnea), and put out an EP titled “Emerald” (Ghostly), in honor of Seattle. He also co-wrote the score for the film “Snow Angels” with David Wingo, which was written and directed by David Gordon Green and will come out in 2007. Lusine has most recently been working on an ambient album titled “Language Barrier” for Hymen Records, a remix of “Workhorse” for My Brightest Diamond, and he just finished a remix CD album + 12” titled “Podgelism” coming out on Ghostly in late March, featuring reworks by John Tejada, Apparat and Robag Wrhume amongst others.

Previous appearance highlights include opening for Ricardo Villalobos at Fabric, performing at CMJ, SXSW, Decibel Festival, Popkomm Festival, the Finlandia Vodka tour with Matthew Dear and James Cotton, and playing at LA’s Getty Center amongst all major cities.
Quote
While there might be other producers who are more accomplished at making idyllic downtempo, or placid IDM, or abstract hip-hop, or haunting ambient techno, or blipping/skipping minimal house, few -- if any -- are capable of covering all of that ground with such sharp consistency.

Been listening to his latest album A Certain Distance quite a bit lately. It uses vocals on some tracks, mostly in the instrumental sense, but a there's a bit of lyric here and there. I found out, to my surprise, that the vocalist is a Finnish lady Vilja Larosto. Usually I'm pretty good at noticing the Finnish accent so good job! :lol:

New Century Classics
homepage (http://www.newcenturyclassics.com/) / myspace (http://www.myspace.com/newcenturyclassics)

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip00469.jpg)

Quote
New Century Classics was formed in Krakow, Poland in March 2006 (though adding their final member and fine-tuning their sound in September-October 2006) by a group of friends and refugees from various parts of the world, centred around a mutual love of good music and the desire to fill their time and their hands with as many instruments as possible. The band consists of two Poles, a Polish-American and a Polish-Canadian hybrid, and an Italian who’s decent at banging on things with sticks. Always experimenting, New Century Classics is constantly acquiring new sounds and new instruments (when they can afford it) in an effort to transform the Polish music scene for the better.

NCC’s first full-length album, Natural Process, was released on November 23rd, 2009, and is available as a free digital download (physical copies are sold out for the moment).

New Century Classics is:
Anna - rhodes, synths, bells, guitar, ibook, egg (sandwich)
Antonello - percussion
Dana - violin, synths, guitar, macbook, bass, egg (salad)
Marek - guitar, rhodes, synths, bass
Mateusz - lead guitar, bass, keys

Wonderful, warm post-rock, and like said in the blurb above, their debut album Natural Process is available as a "pay as much as you want" download in several formats (including FLAC) here (http://newcenturyclassics.bandcamp.com/album/natural-process). You can also listen to the album on that page.

APOCALYPTICA

  (http://img128.imagevenue.com/loc105/th_09137_6849_pic11_122_105lo.jpg) (http://img128.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=09137_6849_pic11_122_105lo.jpg)

Formed in the early '90s Apocalyptica chose an entirely individual path from day one. A few years earlier, while students at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, these young virtuosos joined a cello band that specialised in playing music by everyone from Bach to Hendrix. However, Eicca Toppinen and his three comrades had something louder in mind. All fans of heavy metal, they decided to form their own band. Toppinen wrote some unique arrangements of songs by Metallica, Slayer and other metallic legends and the group embarked on a series of shows at student balls. As their services became more and more in demand, Apocalyptica took the bold step of playing a gig at a bona fide heavy metal club...

君が代 / Kimigayo is the national anthem of Japan. Based on a poem written a thousand years ago, set to music written about 130 years ago, it can be performed with lyrics or without. First version is played with classical instruments. Second version is also an instrumental by Tak Matsumoto.

Hah nice thread !
But you guys are missing Buckethead :)
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3b/Neumos_seattle_2008.jpg)

Here's a bit of information copied and pasted from wikipedia... sorry im a lazy kind of guy...

Brian Carroll (born May 13, 1969), better known by his stage name Buckethead, is a virtuoso guitarist, and multi instrumentalist who encompasses several genres of music. He has released 30 studio albums, four special releases and an EP as of 2010. He has performed on over 50 more albums by other artists. His music spans such diverse areas as progressive metal, funk, blues, jazz, bluegrass, ambient, and avant-garde music.

When performing in his theatrical persona, Buckethead used to wear a KFC bucket on his head, emblazoned with an orange bumper sticker that reads FUNERAL in capital black block letters, and an expressionless plain white costume mask. More recently, he has switched to a plain white bucket no longer bearing the KFC logo. He also incorporates nunchucks and robot dancing into his stage performances.[2][3] Buckethead's persona represents a character who was "raised by chickens" and has made it his "mission in life to alert the world to the ongoing chicken holocaust in fast-food joints around the globe."[4]

An instrumentalist, Buckethead is best known for his electric guitar playing.[5] He has been voted number 8 on a list in GuitarOne magazine of the "Top 10 Greatest Guitar Shredders of All Time"[6] as well as being included in Guitar World's lists of the "25 all-time weirdest guitarists"[7] and is also known for being in the "50 fastest guitarists of all time list".[8]

Buckethead performs primarily as a solo artist. He has collaborated extensively with a wide variety of high profile artists such as Bill Laswell, Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, Iggy Pop, Les Claypool, Serj Tankian, Bill Moseley, Mike Patton, Viggo Mortensen, and was a member of Guns N' Roses from 2000 to 2004. Buckethead has also written and performed music for major motion pictures, including: Saw II, Ghosts of Mars, Beverly Hills Ninja, Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Last Action Hero, and the main soundtrack of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie.

And now, some video to boot :
This one, he's playing with Primus , that guy on the bass is no other than the legendary Les Claypool

PRIMUS * BucketHead * OZZFEST 1999 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neZNrCDppGU#)

And his solo stuff:

Buckethead - Jordan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTcg9JybEp8#)

Wishing Wars - Sleep (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNow6hGVlOc#)

Chillwave, as the cool kids call it I'm told, from Michigan, USA. You can listen to the whole Swim ep at
http://wishingwars.bandcamp.com/ (http://wishingwars.bandcamp.com/)

Check out at least the tracks Beach, Swim and Sleep. Great stuff.



Sun Glitters - Beside Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcKH-IeYqYk#ws)

Quote from: http://sunglitters.bandcamp.com/album/everything-could-be-fine
Sun Glitters sound is an ocean of lush melodies, pitch-shifted vocal samples, ghostly digi-diva choirs, warm bass melodies driven by alternately dense and relaxing beatwork combinations between downtempo and wonky beats.

 RIYL:
 Boards of Canada, Burial, Balam Acab
What they said. Yet again you can listen to the whole new album at the bandcamp page.



Blue Sky Black Death - Sleeping Children Are Still Flying (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CyzOq3hVOw#)

Last but not least, Blue Sky Black Death just put out a new album, Noir. Fucking great stuff, amazing album. I love how these guys manage to keep sounding fresh and kinda new, yet you can instantly tell it's BSBD.

from DangThaoNguyen - the description of this piece  “Sakura Sakura is a very popular Japanese folk song depicting spring, the season of cherry blossom. The song is particularly dedicated to Japanese VICTIMS OF THE EARTH QUAKE AND TSUMAMI with the hope that the SPRING AND CHERRY BLOSSOMS WILL COME BACK TO THEIR LIFE
The song is arranged for Guitar by Yukihiro Yoko who uses different guitar techniques to imitate the sound of the koto.”  Dang Thao - Sakura Theme And Variations by Yokoh Yuquijiro - Classical Guitar  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpp7BURL34s)

It's inside me, and I'm inside it. by Ben Sharp



Ben Sharp, better known as the one-man instrumental metal band Cloudkicker, released a new acoustic track recently.

Like all of his music, the track was meant to be free for download. However, he met the Soundcloud limit of downloads (that he wasn't aware of) so he just advised everyone to share the track however they like. :P

Anyone listen to Rin'? They're a traditional Japanese pop/rock type group from a while back but their music is pretty good. Here's the song Asuka by them, it's not full instrumental since there's some vocals in the beginning but it's like 99% instrumental.
