Hiraeth is the second full-length instrumental album by Swiss producer Faux Tales.
Influenced by neo-classical piano, film scores, post rock and futuristic electronica, the album effortlessly fuses organic recordings and cutting edge sound design in a captivating way.
To celebrate its one year anniversary, I'm really happy to present you the vinyl version of it, which is also the first physical Faux Tales release ever!
Receiving satellite signals from cinematic scores and emotive post-rock, Faux Tales paints a dystopian picture. Otherworldly pianos and hyper-realistic bass music land his sound in a world of its own, suspended in clouds of electronic and neoclassical sonance.
Timo Loosli is a composer, producer and artist who records and performs under the alias Faux Tales. He builds minimal and ambient layers that shift into ever-looming and all-absorbing climaxes. A juxtaposition of calm and chaotic moments flow freely between one another. This juxtaposition between calm and heavy electronica flows freely. Light piano motifs - seemingly pure - become immersed in an immense and dynamic disturbance that slams deep into our terminus. Fused by a constantly churning interstellar cloud of organic and electronic sounds, Loosli synthesises an otherworldly sound palette with his far-reaching compositional skillset. A considerable amount of the Faux Tales sound hails from Loosli's appreciation of film scores, modern electronica and post-rock. The music provides rare escapism that allows listeners to create internal narratives with infinite possibilities.
