and the award for most pretentious press release of 2013 goes to:

 

ULVER MESSE I.X–VI.X

 

Music commissioned for Tromsø Kulturhus in cooperation with the Arctic Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra.

 

Composed and first performed by Ulver, on primarily electronic instruments, with the Tromsø Chamber Orchestra September 21 2012. The assistance of Martin Romberg – God bless his Viennese heart and arrangements – has been invaluable. Much of this was recorded live, yet it is not a live album. We've spent long hours in the studio translating what happened that night.

 

We are at peace for now. It is more quiet than normal. More modern than medieval. But there will always be rapture. Consecration and crying. The father, the mother ... and ghosts. Shadows reverberates – it feels like a companion piece – and Silence's erratic electronique. Sample culture. War and vulture. People hurt. In spite we love. Our children. We fear their future.

 

Remember Górecki's No. 3: Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. It has haunted us for years, and probably always will. The Gustavs Mahler and Holst. Sound collages from When or Nurse With Wound. 70's kraut and synth. Ash Ra and Autobahn. 80's pop scores. John Carpenter and Tin Drum. Terry Riley, again and again and again. Saint John of the Cross.

 

By now, most of you know where we come from. The rest is silence.

 

Ulver, Purgatory, summer 2013.

Today – August 1 – was supposed to be the shipping day of pre-ordered editions and shirts of MESSE I.X–VI.X. We have not yet announced, or mentioned, a digital release. To the contrary we think it is appropriate to wait with that, but we realize now that we should have been clearer on this point and our policies from the start.

The problem with digital is of course once something is "released" it is leaked everywhere in the blink of an eye. Totally takes the air of any balloon.

We are, as many of you know by now, not the biggest fans of Spotify and iTunes etc., as money generated through those services only goes to the capital that may be. The whole point of putting up our own exclusive editions for pre-order, was to take control of the cash flow and come out stronger economically. It's a bummer, of course, that the pressing has been delayed, but we think it is only fair to hold back digital streaming until the physical products has been shipped to those of you who have purchased from us directly.

 

Digital release is planned for September 1 via our own webshop and Bandcamp. And then September 23 on Spotify and iTunes etc., coinciding with the release of Kscope's standard editions. As we have said before, those who have bought from us will not regret it.

Thank you so much for your understanding, we are truly sorry you all have to wait a bit longer. But please know, it makes all the difference.

 

Ulver, Oslo, August 1 2013.

sve su dobre uglavnom, ove sam prve zapamtio... setio sam se sad one ideje sto su imali jos odavno, da snime nattens madrigal sa gudacima samo i orkestrom. kapiram da im se jos od tad vrzma ovako neka ideja. mislim da je od tih nattens sesna za gudace prezivela samo neka pesma koja je remiksovana za onu 1st decade in the machines kompilaciju
