Where The Wolf Has Been Seen


Aurora Borealis presents the debut album from Maze & Lindholm, Where The Wolf Has Been Seen. Combining the talents of P.Maze, one half of noise/techno duo Orphan Swords, with fellow Brussels-based producer and musician Otto Lindholm, Where The Wolf Has Been Seen is a meditative and claustrophobic work for electronics and double bass. The four parts evolve and spread outwards, throbbing bass drones colliding with slowly bowed arcs of keening strings that make for a deeply immersive listening experience. Where The Wolf Has Been Seen explores the boundaries of the modern classical and electronic disciplines, with slowly shifting and expanding compositions that thrive on the tension between them. Mastered by James Plotkin and cut for vinyl at The Carvery, East London. Cover photography by Solal Israel. A Brussels-based producer evolving between drone music and modern classical, Otto Lindholm employs an array of loop pedals and electronic effects in partnership with his double bass to produce rich and voluptuous tones. Lindholm came to light in 2016 with his debut eponymous LP; his second LP Alter (GZH 078LP, 2017), was introduced on BBC6 by Mary Anne Hobbs as an "extraordinary new LP. Deeply meditative". In 2018, he featured on the Houndstooth compilation In Death's Dream Kingdom, and he's also set to work with Black Rain's Stuart Argabright. P.Maze is half of the duo Orphan Swords. Orphan Swords's music has been released on Aurora Borealis, Desire Records, Clan Destine and Instruments Of Discipline. The duo has collaborated with Ike Yard, Helm, SHXCXCHCXSH, Emptyset, and many more. In 2018, Orphan Swords were invited to score the Walter Van Beirendonck show at Fashion Week Paris. That meeting resulted into a techno-driven album in collaboration with the designer, with a painting of Wouter Steel. Next to the furious maximal output of Orphan Swords, P.Maze is exploring a quieter and much more minimal side. This collaboration with Lindholm represents his first official output under that moniker; a solo debut album is in the works as well.
