Conservatory of Flowers LP - Maria Teriaeva
Following her solo debut 'Focus' in 2017, 'Conservatory of Flowers' focuses on rhythm and percussive elements, cutting down ambient passages and leaning even more toward traditional song forms, structuring compositions into pop-length pieces.
The album was recorded over a period of three years, mostly composed during one summer at her dacha (cottage in Russian) just outside of Moscow, resulting in a vibrant and light sound inspired by her surrounding nature.
In addition to analog synthesizer, the album also features Nikita Shishkov on trumpet, Vasiliy Yanik on saxophone, Yana Chekina on cello, Sasha Elina on flute and Vadik Korolev on vocals, with the album closing off with a remix by Sapphire Slows.
"An album filled with rhythmic bleeps and layered synth blankets that collide into a vibrant sound, inspired by summers spent at Maria’s dacha. Playful yet sincere."
Objects & Sounds, the very first mood-based record store featuring a handpicked selection that reflects our ever-changing mood and the music we catch ourselves listening to. They steered away from conventional music classification by looking less at trends, genres and release dates, and leans towards how participants wish to feel.
