Niels Duffhues' Fable Dust – poetic ciné/film concerts with a sense of timelessness|
A ciné concert by Fable Dust feels like a special and intense cinema experience. It takes you to a slow moving world in black and white, that hypnotizes and evokes stillness and contemplation. Fable Dust is musician/filmmaker Niels Duffhues building bridges between film art and live music. He's a romantic stylist with a longing for vast landscapes, roadmovies and abstract storylines. This is all accompanied by his moody and minimalistic guitar music. Looks and sounds like Tarkovsky, Bela Tarr, Jarmusch and Lynch teaming up with Ry Cooder, Neil Young and Marc Ribot.
Press about Fable Dusts debut album 'The man who came in from the storm' (2015)
Gonzo Circus - 'Pure guitar music that invites stillness and contemplation.'
OOR magazine - ' It's beautiful, when he switches tunings, travels off to the east, starts a sample or a theme that could be by Ennio Morcione in a jazzy way.'
Rifraf - eight hypnotizing (guitar) soundscapes wherein field recordings, original effects and live-sampling are woven into each other. Sultry record.
Vital Weekly - The recording quality is very warm here (perhaps also due to the fact that this on vinyl, just as purists would love such a thing) and each of these pieces is a small film by itself. Excellent record, quite moody and textured, but also with shimmering lights.
Muziekwereld - The pieces are spheric soundscapes wherein the sound of a single guitartone evoces mysterious awe.
