Paper Streets

Wyndham Rain The streets we walk along are indeed made of paper, the rubber of our heels erasing every trace of our ever having been here. Still, how wonderful to be here, awash in this cinematic soup with all its transcendent emotions and unfathomable banality. The day I lost my violin was the day I became a poet. If I were a musician like Sven, I could tell you so much more clearly exactly what I mean. Favorite track: A Glimpse Of Memory.
Lost Tribe Sound

Lost Tribe Sound It's like witnessing the inner workings of a storm cloud. Mammoth swaths of dark strings coax the misty edges of the enveloping gray mass ever outward, tiny electrical charges from within keeping the nimbus formation alive and connected. Its hard to tell, if the giant arrives as a threat, or simply as a passive grazer on the weary landscape below. Though it's not all doom, blue skies and hazy golden rays pierce the vaporous monolith occasionally to warm the ground below. LTS: Best Music of 2017 Favorite track: A Glimpse Of Memory.

Sven Laux’s “Paper Streets” is a deeply intimate and vulnerable affair. Released on the Russian label Dronarivm, Sven paints minimal landscapes with watercolors in shades of violin, cello & piano; stripped bare & soaked in memory.

The artist’s works bares a sense of detachment & reflection that usually occurs with the passing of time. Forlorn irony shows itself as it reminds you what feels like to fall in love for the first time, while conjuring ghosts from the last time you shared a gaze.

A departure from the Sven’s earlier work, “Paper Streets” is an organic, neo-classical journey heard through a cinematic lens. Orchestral notes surge like tides and resonate like heartache. Nostalgia echoes and dissolves with a disarming vulnerability.

Sven Laux is part of a modest faction of producers that have been faithfully progressing the evolution of micro composition. Born in Neubrandenburg, Germany, Laux started writing electronic music in 1998 after discovering a talent for meticulously sampling and looping audio.

Now residing in Berlin, Sven Laux has done anything but conform. His unique take on music making has him sharing the company of artisans like Pheek, Ezekiel Honig and Marc Neyen. Laux has become notorious for manipulating foundsounds and employing layers of field recordings in his work. In a discography that stretches back to 2006, there remains a prevalent underlying passion for the obscure.
