Tibor Szemző ‎– Snapshot From The Island

Label: Fodderbasis

Released: RE 2020

Country: Hungary 

Genre: Experimental/Ambient/Tribal

This stunningly remastered reissue of Hungarian composer Tibor Szemzo’s Snapshot From The Island is a rare opportunity to own one the seminal records of this revolutionary composer. Snapshot From The Island was the world's introduction to Szemzo as a solo composer, originally released in 1999 on the legendary Leo Records, a label renowned for releasing soundscapes often as accompaniments to films and instillations the record is constructed from fragments of field recordings and drum machines always accompanied by Szemzo’s surreal and at times almost atonal flute compositions. The result is a technically innovative and radical record that is at once tranquil and tempestuous, its 24 minute title track slowly swells and intensifies to an instance of near intolerable tension before time seems to recede altogether into ambience. Snapshot From The Island ruminates on the sounds of the surreal, it maroons its listener to an otherworldly island where nothing is as it seems and reality is a distant memory.
