Grapes from the Estate

A 4 track experimental ep (55m 40s) — released July 19th 2004 on Touch

Oren Ambarchi's third solo project for Touch sees him reaching beyond the work for electric guitar that he's become recognised for, expanding his palette and taking his investigations into another sphere entirely. There is a reconciliation of his love of song based music and his determination to deal in pure sound. The result is a work that truly eludes such arbitrary definitions. Grapes From The Estate is an all consuming experience that draws the listener out of an ordinary sense of time, into a world beyond it. On more than any other release, his entire body of work to date can be experienced in a single statement. There are the seemingly random tonal structures that are such a large part of his vocabulary, the playfulness and humor of his formative noise schooling, his love of free jazz, of pop music, and rhythmic elements, perhaps subconsciously derived from his Sephardic heritage. Another out pouring of personal, intimate and enduring music from Oren Ambarchi.'

Its like the weird, beautiful music you think you only hear in your dreams. - David Sheppard Q

Instrumentals from Aussie guitar experimenter. Australia Oren Ambarchi evades ambient clich? thanks to a gift for understated melody. Even at a potentially patience-sapping 55 minutes, Grapes From The Estate is his most engrossing album to date. Girl With The Silver Eyes has lovely guitar notes bursting unexpectedly over the disquieting background throb and, elsewhere, hypnotic bell tones and acoustic twangs slowly wreath themselves around Remedios The Beauty. it?s like the weird, beautiful music you think you only hear in dreams. *** - David Sheppard Q Magazine

" the well-rounded sounds which both open and close proceedings serving to cocoon the more melodicious central tracks from outside influence, allowing Reichian delight 'Remedios The Beauty' to twist and turn upon it's own axis seemingly indefinitely. Lush." *** - Kingsley Marshal IDJ
