Projects like his 'Denoising Field Recordings' album have made Richard Eigner one of the most interesting artists in Austria's music scene. The classically trained drummer has so far worked with artists like Patrick Wolf, Patrick Pulsinger, and Flying Lotus on his 'Cosmogramma' album, and entertains a number of own projects just as diverse.
Besides running his own Wald Entertainment label, Eigner is part of Ritornell, a two-piece electro-acoustic jazz band comprised of him and pianist Roman Gerold, which debuted with the album 'Golden Solitude' via Berlin's Karaoke Kalk imprint last year. The duo's fusion of glitch electronica and film noir jazz vibes has been met with wide-spread acclaim, and work on a second album will commence in September.
For this week's podcast Eigner supplies a moody trip through the sonic world of Ritornell, featuring music by Matthew Dear, Chloé, ISAN, Pantha Du Prince, and many others.
