Liondialer is the debut full-length collaborative project from Manchester, UK/Berlin duo Greg Haines and Danny Saul. Liondialer LIVE! is a sequence of stunningly beautiful compositions which were entirely improvised and recorded live throughout various venues in Manchester (and one on Antwerp radio). Using cello and guitar as a starting point, Liondialer compose and process their sound to devastating effect -- laptop pub-ambient, anyone? Greg Haines has already gained a reputation as an incredibly ambitious composer with his previous solo debut album Slumber Tides, released on Erik Skodvin's impeccable Miasmah imprint. Haines and Saul's second-ever public collaboration was an improvised performance with John Twells aka Xela, which was subsequently released as The Twelfth Chapel on Rite Records, a limited edition, one-sided 12" which sold out immediately. The songs on this record are glimmering evocations built from dark cello drone and echoing guitar meanderings that sound almost too beautiful and fully-realized to possibly be improvised. Looped meditations for stringed instruments. For fans of: Talk Talk, Stars Of The Lid, Tony Conrad, and Loren Connors.
