Monocromie release Behind Black Clouds


Monochromie is a musical project of Wilson Trouvé. His music is emerging from many melting spots on borders of ambient, noise and post-rock; thus every song created is a pure original with the resonance of a particular atmosphere. Dark or luminous, hot or cold, wind or earth – attentive ear will detect them all. Monochromie’s music plays with our deep emotions and produces colors in the palette already rich and contrasted of Fluttery Records artists.

In 2012, he released his debut “Angels And Demons” on Fluttery Records and received the most flattering reviews. A year later, his second release “Enlighten Yourself While You Sleep” clearly contrasted with his previous piece, what only proved artists skillfulness and versatility.Between the first album releases and his latests piece, which we are going to present to you shortly, Wilson was not neglecting his career and self-released two EP, “Winter” in 2014 and “Brussel-Zuid” in 2015.

Today, he is coming with his brand new album “Behind Black Clouds”. Listen

Who could introduce his art better than the composer himself?

“After a full year of composition, I am excited to finally present my fourth album: Behind Black Clouds. Like in the past, the process was erratic. Some tracks I could start and complete within a single day. Other took me week, even months, to come maturity. I try to keep the ear on the ground of my emotions, my mood and feelings. The time
has to be right.”

Album’s core instrument is a piano. Even though most of his album was composed in his studio in Marseille, the piano types varies according to a place Wilson was in. Piano recordings together with samples taken from the street and with melodies, basic music editing effects and other instruments like metallophone or melodica created wonderful music carrying the right expression achieved through balance in artist’s creative process.

Wilson further says:”Of course, the visual artist that I am influences the way I perceive and use sound. I literally view it as a palpable texture, one that can be sculpted, modeled, blended and bended in various forms. This also reflects on the way my music tells specific stories. It is no different than clay, dust, paper, colors, paint or inks. Eventually, I want the music that I create to become a collection of paintings, series of shots and screens made of all the many layers that I patiently add along months of creation. Until the balance becomes right. I feel they become landscapes, clouds, shades and lights.”

Heinali presents his new waves

Heinali - A Wave Breaks

Heinali is a project by a music composer and a sound artist from Ukraine, Oleg Shpudeiko and his new release A Wave Crashes has been just released.

Oleg is a self-taught artist, who started to compose in 2003 and even though his music style can be defined as stylistically eclectic, many of his compositions are electroacoustic and often incorporate sound processing methods and techniques. He became a part of Solama art group and started to compose music for installations and performances.

His debut album “67 Breaths” was released in 2011. This was followed by “Air” on Fluttery Records in 2012, which was characterised by minimalist, chamber compositions for piano, strings and field recordings. In the same year two CDs, combining spoken word performance and heavy guitar sound, ‘Conjoined’ and ‘Ain’t No Night’ were released on Paradigms Recordings in collaboration with American poet Matt Finney. His last project was the “Blook” duo which he formed with classically trained music composer Alexey Shmurak.

Heinali’s live shows usually feature free electro-acoustic improvisations. Oleg also works as a music composer, writing music for films, games and other media.

The new album by Heinali, “A Wave Crashes” consists of material recorded during electroacoustic studio improvisations incorporating analogue synthesizers and analogue and digital sound processing. It’s a kind of a sound sculpture of a certain moment almost frozen in time, letting you experience it from the different angles of space.

The EP mastered by Lawrence English, while album photography credits goes to Alex Naselenko.

As he grew older, he discovered different types of music and different ways of creating them.

Apocalyptica’s Max Lilja signs to Fluttery Records

Max Lilja

Max Lilja, co-founder of legendary Apocalyptica and touring member of Tarja Turunen band has signed a recording contract with Fluttery Records. Label is to release Lilja’s sophomore solo album.

Max Lilja, known as one of the most versatile and adventurous cellist of all times, is a Finnish cellist and composer. Lilja prepares to release his new album on Fluttery Records and celebrate the album with a tour.

Artist choses Fluttery Records to release his upcoming work which became a home for brilliant artists from all over the world. Label mainly releases instrumental music and open its arms to post-rock, ambient, modern classical and experimentalism.


Lilja showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. At the age of five, when other children started to recognize colours and shapes of letter in alphabet, he became highly attentive to melodies created by playing his first violin. Two years later, he switched to cello, which had stayed his life passion ever since and he was accepted to the Junior Academy of Sibelius Academy when he was ten.

After years of studying and playing in various symphony orchestras, in 1996, Apocalyptica was created with Max (being only 21 years old) as one of the founders. In the following years, the band released three albums (Plays Metallica By Four Cellos in 1996, Inquisition Symphony in 1998 and Cult in 2000).

After leaving Apocalyptica in early 2000s, it seems Max unveiled his full potential – besides being a cellist in Finnish National Opera Orchestra, he became member of a multi genre metal band Hevein and a Finnish folk-pop band Tekijä Tuntematon, whose music is based on Finnish poetry.

In 2007, after initial ideas of solo album and searching for “the sound” of electrified cello, he started touring and recording with former Nightwish vocalist Tarja Turunen and eventually, in 2013, his first solo album Play Electronica By One Cello was released.


In Lilja’s upcoming solo album Morphosis, the master of the electric cello utilizes a wide spectrum of analog and digital effects to build strong identities for the sounds originating from the cello. In the nine instrumental songs you can hear influences from trip hop to electronica, from rock to classical, all morphed to the amazing cinematic images through Lilja’s cello.

Fluttery Records is proud to host this gifted composer. Label manager Taner Torun says “While recording the new album, Lilja showed us how he grew his compositions. We were very excited whenever we received something new from the artist. The compositions are now fully grown and they are ready to go.”
