Title: Blue Eyes Of The March
Format: CD
Label: Faraway Press
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
500 copies. "Theres an amazing attention to aesthetics that Andrew Chalk undeniably pays for each release with his name on it. It starts with the music and continues through the cover artwork, packaging, and presentation. The first part of Blue Eyes of the March is a 20 minute long piece which sounds like it was created by a prepared guitar, tuned only to play a limited number of pre-determined notes as theyre quietly plucked and resonate for long stretches. The tones resemble some of those on the Buddha Box, and while the effect is similarly serene and meditative, theres a number of differences that are inherent with the basic natures of the medium. The biggest advantage I think is the ability to amplify the sound and be completely bathed in it, which is something Chalks music always lends itself to. Chalks music is not on a loop, either, and each piece makes a gradual evolution over the time. The second part is an absolutely heavenly 31 minute long piece. Unlike the first part, this one sounds like it was created by piano, yet it echoing in a similar way to the other. The piano tones and treatment are almost reminiscent of some 20+ year old Harold Budd work but while the set notes are very rigid, Chalks playing is quite fluid." - Brainwashed.

Title: Goldfall
Format: LP
Label: Faraway Press
Country: UK
Price: $42.00
"Following the sublimely beautiful series of CDs on his own Faraway Press label, Andrew Chalk slips back to analog with Goldfall. Limited to 300 copies pressed on heavyweight vinyl and housed in a silk-screened sleeve and overwrap, the LP, featuring piano from Vicki Jackman is another side to Chalks remarkable discography. Haunted keyboards extending into the distance, like the recent Andrew Liles The Dying Submariner, this piece puts aside the enveloping blankets of drone for a sparser sound, close in spirit to Harold Budd or William Basinski. This is a superb platter of sonic and visual art." - Synaesthesia Records. Incredible packaging - amazingly still a few here..

Title: Vega
Format: CD
Label: Faraway Press
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
CD reissue of CD-R release from 2005. Beautiful hand-made mini-LP style gatefold sleeve. "Chalk has again walked a very fine line between complete abstraction and conscious identification...Chalk steps a bit differently, proceeds with his sound in a fulfilling fashion, and somehow works with his sound more like a composer than anyone else. I can imagine him toying with his sounds like theyre clay, shaping them to make an architecture or to plan an entire geographic region. Every release Chalk has seems to produce this same effect, this sense of a musician as sculptor. As the album begins the entire sound is bathed in a kind of blind stupor, sounds traveling aimlessly for minutes at a time before the distinct impression of a bell is made clear...The most change occurs in tone, however, elevating the album from a tomb-like sound to the hum of the open air. Conceptually the whole album sounds like a liberation from architecture and a step away from the tight, always very centered sound that Chalk employs. Whatever the case, Vega has that static and rolling sound in its first half and then slowly dissolves, revealing a subterranean process that mightve been working throughout the whole album." - Lucas Schleicher/Brainwashed.

Title: Fall In The Wake of a Flawless Landscape
Format: LP
Label: Three Poplars
Country: Germany
Price: $24.00
"The first new solo release by Andrew Chalk since his Over The Edges LP from 1999 on Streamline. The material was recorded in 2003. For anyone interested in Mirror this off course is a must. Limited edition of 600 copies. "When the moon did not free him nor the sun release him, he thought his time strange, became impatient with his life; he moved the gate of the fort with his ring finger, suddenly turned the bony lock with his left toe; with his nails he got outside the threshold, with his knees out from the door of the entrance. Then he plunged straight into the sea, the person among the waves. There he lay outstretched for five years, both five years and six, seven years, eight. At last he came to a stop on the surface, by a nameless headland, a treeless land. With his knees he struggled up from the ground, with his arms he turned himself over. He got up to look at the moon, to admire the sun, to observe the Great Bear, to scan the stars." - Three Poplars.
