Tim Linghaus - About B. (Memory Sketches B-Sides Recordings) [Sound In Silence 061]

Another one released via the Greek Sound In Silence-imprint on January 19th, 2k19 is "About B. (Memory Sketches B-Sides Recordings)", the second ever full album release by German, Cuxhaven-based artist and composer Tim Linghaus. Bringing forth thirteen new tracks plus four reworks of compositions from his 2018 longplay debut within a timespan of 25 minutes only there's no wonder that the 'sketches' description suits this release perfectly, with only two cuts stretched out over more than two minutes and many even remaining under 60 seconds long... or: short. Despite this slightly patchwork-y approach Tim Linghaus manages to deliver a coherent, oftentimes crackly and vintage-touched vision of short Ambient and ChillOut episodes, partly crossing over into (Neo)Classical or score'esque territories, touching base on inward looking piano miniatures or widescreen panoramas paired with classical string etudes and beautiful pads. With all the ideas and layouts featured on here Tim Linghaus could easily have made two, maybe three, full-length albums out of the material presented and we do hope that these sketches will be picked up by some sync-agency in the future as they'd make up excellent film music for arthouse flics and touching, highly emotional film noir screenings.
