Autumn leaves falling on the piano keyboard. Astonishing silence between the notes covered with memories of better times. Field recordings capturing humble moments of life we used to know. Soft patterns intertwining into each other in a beautifully sad manners. Carefully crafted piece of work full of emotion and personal development, where ambient stepped into neoclassical territory
Strongest work from øjeRum by far
«øjeRum is Paw Grabowski, hailing from Denmark. A prolific ambient/experimental musician with -so far- 30 albums and 15 EP’s, mainly on cassette; a sum that is quite an achievement. An artist that focuses on hand cut collage works. With his øjeRum moniker, Grabowski has been releasing tape-based music since 2007. His pieces often include organ, piano and guitar parts. Viewing the vast sea out of my window, I picked up two albums, recent cassette releases and I am submerged peacefully into the realm of øjeRum.
Hendes Bregneøjne was the initial øjeRum narration and my rite of passage into its lair. The connotation of ambient transmuting itself with a -kind of- neoclassical fusion. The contemplation of minimalism is perfect, with a natural looping vehicle being in charge. Cyclic piano themes, revolving and progressive, with abstract sound waves of an unidentified source in the background. Cinematic and fragile, light feathered and naturally dirty with organic matter. Physical, informal, solid and raw beauty. True ambient experiments, completed and revealed. Six pieces, 38 minutes of joy! Edition of 100 copies.» — Toneshift

Brings back a lot of personal track writing memories, does track one. Amazing music by ojerum. "Don't Worry Mother" is dark without even trying to be, the best kind of writer catharsis for an artist like ojerum. Mick Buckingham (Muttley SV)
