SOLEMN is a very modest attempt to bring the compositional techniques of Renaissance to Analogue-Modular realm.
"After a great debut on Miami-based label Noir Age, EL.Fugue presents 8 new songs of hypnotic electronic soundtrack music. "Solemn" is an intimate, minimal, emotive and atmospheric soundscape. A modern John Carpenter in trance". (BFE RECORDS).
"EL.Fugue is back with a new release on B.F.E. Records following 2020 debut ‘Mindhalls’, an excellent trip through dark leftfield electronics that came out on Noir Age. Under the EL. Fugue moniker, the classically trained A.V. Serzhen leaves the concert hall behind, instead, fixating on analogue synthesis. The results are nothing short of mesmerising.
...Much of Serzhen’s work has its own disquieting power, sure to instil a sense of unease in the listener.
... Although EL.Fugue’s palette is a reduced one, it’s proof that you only need a few elements to execute a masterclass in atmosphere" ( Robert Hattaway / INVERTED AUDIO).
