In 2010, Parenthèses Records released Peter Knight & Dung Nguyen’s duo collaboration RESIDUAL seeing the pair developing unique approaches to combining Vietnamese and Western music elements in a contemporary setting.
At the start of 2014, Alexis Courtin from PR and Peter Knight discussed their shared desire to give the album a second life and thus asked a carefully chosen list of musicians from France and Australia to present their personal perspectives on Residual. The result is this amazing album that comes as a FREE download, blurring the boundaries between abstract ambient, repetitive experimental music and groove-based textures.
From LENA (aka Mathias Delplanque, France, Bruit Clair Records)’s proto dubby techno, Tilman Robinson’s abstract ambient, Joe Talia’s subtle electronica, Black Sifichi (France)’s unmistakable voice and post-musique concrète edit to Dan West ’s minimal groove, Residual was given the most refined homage.

PS Art Space (PSAS), Parenthèses Records & Listen/Hear Collective are proud to present The Cinematic Scores IV.
Part new media installation, part performance, The Cinematic Scores offer a unique marriage of film and music. Musical ensembles are invited to respond to a selection of short silent films from the public domain by composing an original score for each of the moving pictures. Presented as a cinematic installation within the monumental ground floor of PS Art Space, the experience is mesmerising and deeply poetic. It is cinema like you have not experienced before.
The Cinematic Scores II was nominated in the Fringe World 2013 Awards for Film & Multimedia and the West Australian said:
“The Cinematic Scores is an event that renders splendidly the power of music to shift our interpretive faculties, a challenging but rewarding experience for performers and audience alike.” (Matthew Sykes, The West Australian)

Recorded over a weekend at a beach house overlooking the sea in Safety Bay - an idyllic and relaxed setting to record about twelve hours of raw material - the album testifies of the vivid interactions between plucked strings and winds, the rhythmic drive that propels the music and the coalescing of traditional influences with the improvisational energy of jazz.
As with all previous PR releases, Swiss-born visual artist Tom Mùller once again designed the beautiful digipak format, while the Daramad logo was conceptualised by Reza Mirzaei.
With all physical purchase comes the free digital download. Stream and order the album via our store HERE
