Erik Honoré - Heliographs

posted by Dave on 14.10.14 11:50 in Music Reviews Print  

It is not an album to be rushed, nor "scanned", nor sampled "track by track": it is a whole experience. That experience is a rewarding one, and worth repeating. Again. And Again. And AGAIN

Erik Honoré - Photo by Kjartan BjellandI have long wondered what an Erik Honoré solo record would sound like. Thus, "Heliographs” is an album I've been eagerly awaiting. Additionally, as a certified Punktoholic, I have been aware that I was not alone in this regard.


[EDIT: In the newly established tradition of transparency: I am actually a member of the "Punkt family" (I have been a Punkt Festival MC a couple of times, and have worked in the background with some the best people I know). However, if I didn't feel about this album as I did when I wrote it, and continue to do, this article would never have been written.]


The album's personnel includes Eivind Aarset, Sidsel Endresen, and Ingar Zach, all regular Punkt Festival participants, and Jeffrey Bruinsma, violinist, 25% of Zapp4, the Dutch improvising string quartet, and now new Punkt alumnus. Of course, given the smorgasbord of sampling opportunities available ...


* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.
