Siamese Burn

 

AH takes us on a trip through the deepest caves of wonder. It’s probably not the best way to describe the music and dissect it, but these two tracks are like walking through underground caverns filled with natural treasures, glistening minerals and crystals.  – Deft

Brighton-based producer Alphabets Heaven returns to King Deluxe with his finest offering yet, the 6-track, 30-minute long ‘Siamese Burn’ EP. Veering from the immaculately produced, Modeselektor-style chord progressions and intricate percussion of the title track, to the almost beatless shimmer of the vocal-infused ‘Ivory Heart’, it’s an evocative, beautifully layered EP, steeped in class and sequenced with good attention to detail and narrative progression. Good stuff.

This animation by Renata Gąsiorowska is pure bliss. From what I understand she’s only halfway through art school so what you’re seeing here is only the beginning. I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favourite animations of the year, I’d say it’s one of my favourite anythings from anytime, ever.

Booooooom!

 

 

Brighton-based producer Alphabets Heaven sent over “Fornia,” a cut from his forthcoming Siamese Burn EP for Canadian outpost King Deluxe. The tune opens with some keyboard flourishes before diving into a grinding rhythm marked by deep synth chords, wavering oscillations, and a steadfast, mid-tempo beat. The addition of bloopy FX makes Alphabets Heaven’s production sound fit for a night spent entrenched in retro video games, or maybe just a pixelated joy ride through space.

There isn’t really any other way to describe this delightful, surreal music video that is like a cross between Adventure Time and a 1990s club kid ecstasy flashback.

When it comes to visualizing music, often the form the visuals take is quite abstract, with various shapes and patterns representing certain components of the song. But Polish illustrator and animator Renata Gąsiorowska‘s music video for Alphabets Heaven’s “Birthday” uses audio cues to shape a character-driven plot around, with movements and gestures illustrating the beats and bleeps of the music.

The track’s minimalist style and laid back beats translate perfectly well to the simple hand drawn style of the animation, which has a charming, child-like vibe to it. Created using TVPaint Animation Gąsiorowska cites anime Tekkonkinkreet as inspiration as well as ‘some Japanese martial arts classes I took last year for a while (as a total noob and weakling, but still it was fun), Adventure Time I watch with my roommate each time we are having dinner, platform games I played a lot as a kid. I also love animations by Priit Pärn, Sally Cruikshank, Julia Pott, David OReilly, Atsushi Wada, and Piotr Kamler. Even if they are not obvious inspirations for this one. But mostly, I am a 90s kid with a brain infected by games, Cartoon Network and trashy cartoons and anime from Polsat and RTL 7.’

The narrative concerns a girl, who morphs into a blobby cat-type creature, fighting a shape-shifting squirrel boy before they finally end up getting along and dancing, in a pleasantly surreal tale that has a comic book aesthetic (Gąsiorowska creates comics too) that fits perfectly with the song’s blissful tones. ‘When I first heard “Birthday” I quickly got addicted and after couple days of listening to it i had this film in my head’, Gąsiorowska explains. ‘Animating all of this was very fun and the music has a very sharp rhythm and accents so it was perfect for me to fit fight and dance scenes to it.’

The Creators Project

 

 

Having followed the progress of Brighton based producer, Alphabets Heaven for a little while, what’s so impressive about his new EP, Siamese Burn is how full and technically rich it is. Often with beat dudes everything is fractured with these quickly captured loops and one trick ideas that absolutely bang for 3 minutes; and I fucking love that, but compositionally, Siamese Burn elevates itself out of that world simply by dealing with that hip hop type of subject matter in a different way.

In retrospect I’ve probably done him a disservice even mentioning him as a ‘beats dude’ because his new music is far away from any kind of beat repeat or MPC crunch. ‘Ivory Heart’ is one of the tracks on the EP (along with ‘Birthday’) that really shelves the attention on the drums in favour of rich melodies and snatches of real songwriting coming off like a bit of a more culturally relevant Bonobo.

Been loving / spinning this one since Alphabets Heaven gave it it’s first play on our radio show. What an absolute gem of a tune, can’t believe you lucky people are getting it free! Grab the whole ‘Siamese Burn EP’ in March on King Deluxe, it’s a hot one.

You’ll Know Soon

 

 

The new Alphabets Heaven EP coming on King Deluxe Records is seriously going to blow people’s minds. I’m completely floored at the level of production here…Stunning.

Following on from the premiere of Alphabet’s Heaven track ‘Ivory Heart’ that we posted last month and to remind you that his Siamese Burn EP is out now on Canadian label, King Deluxe, the label yesterday posted the enchanting animation for the EP’s unrivalled standout track, ‘Birthday’. In terms of sound design it’s one of the most striking pieces on the EP and to have it illustrated and represented so buoyantly through the animation of Renata Gąsiorowska feels like a perfect match…

Brighton based producer Alphabets Heaven has been bubbling away on the underground scene for a while now, showcasing his drum machine-clinic masterclass live shows with the likes of Toro Y Moi and Tokimonsta as well as recently headlining Manchester’s very own This City is Ours.  2013 sees the release of his second EP “Siamese Burn,” and here we have the title track, an absonant composition of flourishing synths and samples with technical beat production that I feel really encompasses the element of his live shows.  If you get a chance to see this guy live I’d seriously recommend it.

JAC: Department

 

 

How someone finds an artist like Alphabets Heaven, I have no clue. Would you even know you found it when you did? Thankfully, we’ve got King Deluxe Records on the case. Starting out as more of a beat maker type of fellow, this budding producer quickly blossomed into a very skilled producer laying down two releases with King Deluxe (Jay’s Odyssey & Boosh) which circulate regularly on my musical listening device of choice.

Upbeat and dreamy, Siamese Burn EP contains five originals and a remix by stable mate Julien Mier, making it Alphabets Heaven’s third release on the Canadian label. Exploring new textures and sounds, this EP seems like a bubbling, colourful waking dream of sorts. A distant clap surrounded by lush bass compels out to dive deeper in the realm. Quite the inviting experience.

Set your eyes on this beautifully playful video for Birthday, possibly my favourite track of his, and make moves to increase your intake of Alphabets Heaven. Available in digital and CD format since yesterday. Time to spread the word.

Hailing  from Brighton, Alphabets Heaven is a good contestant for your to-watch list. His latest EP, Siamese Burn, is an effective smooth cosmic ride filled to the brim with low and powerful bass, just as is his single Birthday. Add a great random, brightly colored animation by Renata Gąsiorowska and this little piece should definitely please your eyes as much as your ears! Check it out!

Official Hype

 

 

This Alphabets Heaven EP has been on blast in our office over and over again. To date, this is our favorite King Deluxe release bringing a range of different amazing vibes to the table. If you enjoy experimental boundaries of beats and bass then this is your type of release. Big ups to Alphabets Heaven and King Deluxe!

Future Flavor

 

 

Jonny Wildey aka Alphabets Heaven est un véritable ovni musical. Originaire de Brighton, il propose sa musique électronique expérimentale depuis quelques années maintenant mais ce n’est qu’aujourd’hui que nous lui rendons hommage sur le limonadier.

Pendant ces différents concerts, le monsieur a obtenu les faveurs et le respect de personnages hauts en couleurs comme Daedelus ou encore Tokimonsta qui le citent régulièrement, disant de lui qu’il représente la crème de la crème de la musique actuelle (écoutez par exemple Woman, une petite merveille…). Alors évidemment, ça met la puce à l’oreille !

Autant à l’aise avec une mpc qu’avec de vieux synthés et autres séquenceurs analogiques, l’anglais offre une palette musicale complètement éclectique, tout en s’écartant en permanence des méthodes conventionnelles en échantillonnant l’ensemble des sonorités qu’il utilise. Petit à petit, on découvre l’étendue d’un alphabet musical richissime et on a droit à 6 tracks (dont un remix « miam miam » du hollandais Julien Mier) qui vous ferons voyager au pays des rêves.

Bon, en ce moment, mes journées sont très chargées, pas une minute de répit mais j’en profite quand même pour présenter la toute dernière création de Renata Gasiorowska, une illustratrice venue tout droit de Pologne. Loin d’être de tout repos, cette animation souvent folle vous fait traverser la nuit, le jour, rencontrer des personnages au caractère bien trempé, le tout sur une mélodie qui n’est pas pour me déplaire icon smile Dessin et animation pour Alphabets Heaven

Our pal Alphabets Heaven constantly surprises us with tracks like no other and this one’s no different, touching on some minimal downbeat licks while perpetuating that head nod. Brilliant animation to accompany it by Renata Gąsiorowska also.

We Are Lucid

 

 

UK-based electro artist Alphabets Heaven teamed up with artist/animator Renata Gasiorowska to create this understated yet bizarre music video for the track ‘Birthday.’ With child-like drawings on a construction paper-esque background, and cool, understated colors, it really works well with the chill, hypnotic music.

Awesome Robo

 

 

Renata Gąsiorowska’s TVPaint animated, sword wielding, morphing animals provide the perfect dreamlike accompaniment for the organica sounds of Alphabets Heaven’s Birthday.

If you’re taken with Gąsiorowska’s animation style, you should also make time for her much darker, but no less enthralling short Pułapki.

Directors Notes

 

 

Very much in the tradition of the Eastern Europe style this video is strange and fascinating. Animated by Renata Gasiorowska of Lodz, Poland it is a charming fantasy very suitable for the enigmatic music it is set to which is “Birthday” from Siamese Burn by Alphabets Heaven.

This video by illustrator, cartoonist and Polish animation student Renata Gąsiorowska is gorgeous. One comment on Vimeo was “it feels like being submerged within a pleasant dream”. I agree but believe it may be an opium induced dream. I love the dancing teeth.

The New LoFi

 

 

It has been extraordinary to watch the explosion of animation talent, as digital and traditional techniques merge, making newly-practical the role of the individual, independent animation artist. Today’s truly lovely example comes from young Łódź, Poland-based animator Renata Gąsiorowska, who collaborates with music label King Deluxe on a video for Brighton, UK band Alphabets Heaven. (We covered King Deluxe and their love for videos last fall.)

Against the focused whimsy of that music, Renata’s animation weaves a fanciful narrative, perfectly timed to the pacing and flow of the tune.

Beautiful video here by Renata Gasiorowska to accompany the new Alphabets Heaven Siamese Burn EP on King Deluxe, with more than a touch of Miyazaki in the tale of a battle between two shape shifters who end up being friends and having a party with some teeth.

Untimely Sound

 

 

Velmi působivě zpracovaný krátký animovaný film s fantazijními až pohádkovými motivy. Jednoduché kreslené výjevy plné fantazie a až surrealistické obrazotvornosti a prostá (ale působivá) animace jsou doprovázeny neskutečně podmanivou futuristickou hudbou.

Celý film evokuje pocit snového výletu do světa fantazie. Tanec zrození fantaskního světa.

Tento animovaný krátký film vznikl ve skutečnosti jako ilustrační video k již zkomponované hudbě, ke skladbě Birthday od hudebníka, který si říká Alphabets Heaven. Jde vlastně o videoklip, který ale svým uměleckým ztvárněním překročil hranice pouhého doprovodného videa a stal se svébytným uměleckým dílem. Autorkou tohoto krátkého animovaného filmu je polská výtvarnice Renata Gąsiorowska.

No tenía ni idea quién es/son Alphabets Heaven, sólo sé que hace música electrónica del estilo que no me gusta y no creo que vuelva a escucharlo en mi vida. Sin embargo, corrió con la suerte de reclutar a Renata Gąsiorowska para realizar el video de su tema Birthdays, que podría ser mi animación favorita en lo va de año.

En el clip, un grupo de niños animales/humanoides celebran un cumpleaños con una piñata. Mientras tanto, por los techos de la ciudad, otro animal mutante que cambia de forma a placer corre a encontrarse en batalla con una niña que también tiene facultades de convertirse en distintas bestias extrañas psicodélicas. Todo es muy quemado, perfectamente fluido, atrapa desde el principio y si bien queda claro que no hay historia inteligible, de todos modos es difícil despegarse. El estilo de Gąsiorowska es genial también, todo parece dibujado con colores de cera y a la vez muy limpio.

Renata es una ilustradora, animadora y caricaturista que apenas es estudiante de arte y ya es una dura; pasen por su blog para ver más dibujos o por su behance (aunque lo que está allí no le hace justicia a esta joya). Por otro lado, ahora sí sé quién es Alphabet Heavens: se trata de un productor de Brighton cuyo Soundcloud pueden visitar aquí. La página del EP donde está Birthdays tiene un poco más de arte de la ilustradora, así que échenle un ojo también.

Las Resenas De La Nonna

 

 

Wochenende! Und um langsam reinzukommen, den Tanzfuß warmlaufen zu lassen und den Groove für die kommenden 48 Stunden zu finden, eignet sich “Fornia” von Alphabets Heaven gerade bestens. Der Produzent aus Brighton verschenkt den Track via Xlr8r und liefert damit einen ersten Vorboten für seine “Siamese Burn EP”, die am 18. März auf King Deluxe erscheint.
“Fornia” lässt es ruhig angehen, schickt solide Basswellen über durch den Raum schwirrende Effekte, liebliche Out-of-space-Melodien und behutsam platzierte Vocal-Spielereien. Das klingt nach Mount Kimbie, Space Dimension Controller oder Floating Points, sitzt aber doch ganz wunderbar eigen zwischen den Stühlen, oder besser: tanzt zwischen den Stühlen.

This joyful animation by Renata Gąsiorowska is like something in between Adventure Time and a Chad Vangaalen video on acid. Lovely stuff!”

Love You Good

 

 

Брайтонский музыкант Джонни Уайлди, записывающий свою музыку под псевдонимом Alphabets Heaven, выпустил новый клип на трек Birthday. Анимированная визуализация полностью соответствует названию песни. День рождения идет полным ходом, но в любое мгновенье праздник может закончиться. К счастью, на скрытую угрозу находится управа в виде хвостатого ниндзя. Клип подготовила Рената Гасиоровская. Ее анимация оказалась настолько хорошей, что порой кажется, что именно песня была создана для визуализации, а не наоборот.

Look At Me

 

 

I think I just had a bit of brain melt listening to this track from Alphabets Heaven.

A large part of this odd sensation that I am experiencing is due to the visuals, this is very much an audio/visual experience make no mistake. The track itself is subdued and feels fairly minimalist. But once the beat gets going it still has a warm feeling to it, striking a delicate balance.

The video is something completely entrancing and is very much a fevered version of a child’s cartoon. Characters shift and transform sometimes in monsters, sometimes into animals, it’s very translucent and ends with a birthday celebration featuring dancing teeth… I don’t really think I can add to that.

The Needle Drop

 

 

Damn, those crazy Canadian cats up at King Deluxe keep elevating their game. This new video by Renata Gąsiorowska for Alphabets Heaven’s plaintive and eerily funky “Birthday” is a masterpiece of hand-drawn animated weirdness…it would be right at home on Adult Swim.

The circadian percussion and hazily-hewn synths are straight out of a uneasy, but memorable dream, while the video expertly captures the creeping but never quite threatening vibe of the beat with aplomb. Too good.

She creates a fantastic world of monsters, animals and creatures that are generated from one another, creating a chain of wonderful dreaming images that weaves a fanciful narrative. Our eyes are hypnotized by colors and shapes.

Wanna Play Daily

 

Last month Alphabets Heaven released his second EP entitled Siamese Burn on King Deluxe. His aesthetic seems like it’s straight out of a nightmarishly beautiful forest. His EP intermingles a palate of natural and synthetic sounds with strokes of glistening percussion and fluttering melodies. Alphabets Heaven has dubbed his own style as ‘organica’, which to me seems more than fitting.

Jazz & Grooves

Expert abstract selection from AH. Stand out track “Fornia” has the perfect amount of everything & stll solid enough for people to go crazy on the dancefloor to. The whole release will surprise.
