Mute Forest

The sound of beetle-decimated woodlands.


Mute Forest is the solo project of Mombi's Kael Smith. Subtle beats, layered electronics and occasional nylon guitar for a sound that is gloomily melodic and meditative.

Deforestation was released November 13, 2015.
All albums are on http://muteforest.bandcamp.com/
On Spotify - Deforestation and Infinity Pools EP
Mombi is on http://mombi.bandcamp.com/
On Spotify - The Wounded Beat (2011) and Turning Witch EP (2014)



"Smith's whisper feels like it's drifting phantom - like through the trees, with a cricket's near-subliminal chirp appearing alongside a hypnotic, dubby beat pulsation and electric guitar shadings" - TEXTURA

"A pale, fading light sinks its sharp fangs into the forest. Mute Forest’s Deforestation abides inside. In small but noticeable degrees the light changes. It’s the unstoppable intrusion of an approaching dusk." - FLUID RADIO

"If we were subject to a certain restraint to keep only the important works, those that affect us and carry a message, then the albums signed by Kael Smith and his various identities (Khale, Mombi, Mute Forest) would be among them." - SUN BURNS OUT

"There is beauty in depression, there is beauty in decay … and that is the kind of beauty that Mute Forest perfectly captures in these songs of loss." - AMBIENT BLOG

Barotti



Barotti is a musician and contemporary multimedia artist based in Berlin. After his music studies in drums at the Siena Jazz Academy he arrived in Berlin in 2007. There he joined forces with Plastique-Fantastique, who are producers of inflatable urban architecture. Together they started creating interactive sound sculptures and their installations have been exhibited at Saatchi Gallery, Clerkenwell Design Week London and Design Week Milan. Their latest work Sound of Light (made for Urbane Künste Ruhr) won the Let’s Colour Award. Their work also extends into pop: for the current live shows of Peaches they designed an inflatable stage diving machine, now touring around the world. Since 2011, Barotti has also teamed up with Asphalt Piloten, an interdisciplinary group of artists transforming public spaces. Together, they have traveled all over Europe and Russia with various projects, winning the Swiss June Johnson Dance Award, as well as the Kultur-&-Kreativpiloten Deutschland Award. Furthermore he also played the lead part in Berlin Für Helden, a movie by legendary German underground director Klaus Lemke.


Barotti is now releasing his debut album “Rising”. A soundtrack for fantastic futuristic fairytales. Epic and symphonic with a deep electronic base. Armed with iconic analog gear of the 1970s and 1980s, a hand-picked group of high level classical string and horn players and the whole imaginary world of his absurd fantasies, Barotti is opening up a new dimension in the vast field between contemporary classical and electronic music. Rising stands firmly with one foot in the same mud as Woodkid and Sohn, and the other foot dipping into the past 200 years of classical music, resting in a lukewarm cocktail of Funkstörung and James Blake. The album was recorded in Casablanca and Berlin. Co-written and co-produced with Swedish composer Anders Ehlin and German producer Valentin Sommer.
