In-Tune: Barbara Morgenstern & Robert Lippok

Style: Electronica

"Barbara Morgenstern and Robert Lippok's beautiful Tesri album has its roots in a 2001 commission for Domino's Series 500 imprint, where they soundtracked the moods of each of the seasons across twenty-one near perfect minutes. On Tesri, which is an Arab-rooted Turkish word meaning "to accelerate," the music feels partly coloured by their separate visits to Istanbul. But this is not kitschy, "eastern-sounding" world music; rather, the music is exotic and rich, full of seasonal detail, moving from remote sunsets, insect hum and dust, to a crisp, wintery stillness." - Stephen Pastel
