(OUT OF STOCK Why?)
'Haven' contains a vast diversity and collection of different shades of melancholia. Without a human voice or single beat to be heard, Nooten wanted no earthly distractions from the mood he set out to communicate. And it works. On more levels then one.
Nooten sounds more introverted and world weary then we are accustomed to hearing him yet, with an ease and productivity we can only marvel at, he sketches an introspective and deeply poetic musical world of heart-wrenching beauty, incorporating elaborate sound design and experimentation without over-producing the music or compromising his initial goals.
As a rule Pieter Nooten sounds like Pieter Nooten: there are no influences by predecessors, external styles or genres. This music is his music; timeless, introvert, even desolate at times, it never fails to transmit Nooten's unique musical message, all the way from a totally different planet back to ours. Even considering the restriction of a single Mac Book Pro as the only composition tool, the music remains sophisticated and profound, restrained and minimalistic.
Nooten never contests his personal mark: a pensive sadness that delicately lies hidden within every single melody, sound and harmony: a profound melancholy that is intense and at some moments quite overwhelming. Here is the work of the master, not a disciple, of the innovator, not an imitator."
