Pepo Galán - Family Harmony
As the name suggests, 'Family Harmony' blends the work of Pepo Galán with a number of collaborators, whose synergy creates an album of unique yet connected soundscapes. The ambient terrain he explores with artists including Warmth, Sita Ostheimer, Karen Vogt, Benoit Pioulard, Awakened Souls and Markus Guentner embodies an unparalleled sonic unity.
Journeying from a place of nostalgia and melancholy, towards the hope promised by new beginnings, a sense of stepping into the unknown seeps through each composition.
Karen Vogt’s haunting vocal in A Wave That Carries Me echoes with an intimate familiarity that serves to reassure the listener as they travel into new territory.
Additional vocals that weave through the collection resonate deep within, yet simultaneously speak of something unforeseen. As in life, the loss of what was combines with an anticipation of what is to come, mingling emotions and experiences to construct unexpected perspectives.
The transition process is similarly embodied in the packaging, which reconstructs vintage books into cases for a contemporary concept. The fusion of old and new is further reflected in the deluxe limited edition packaging;
