about

Bygones is Mathieu Karsenti’s fond farewell to his adoptive home of London after twenty-seven years living and working in the city, as the award-winning film composer moves on to pastures new. Mathieu has extended and refined the musical language of Downstream Blue, his debut on the label, into a stirringly cinematic yet exquisitely restrained suite of eight neo-classical impressions, each dedicated to a moment, encounter, love or loss experienced during his time in one of the most diverse, richly textured and complex human environments on earth.

Slowcraft digital series Lifelines is curated by label founder James Murray, presenting vital and consoling works from world class genre-defying artists, each carefully mastered by Ian Hawgood and individually paired with bespoke artwork by printmaker June Murray.

Lifelines. Hold tight.

Selected Press:

"Although a composer for film, Mathieu Karsenti is on the same wavelength as the best of our Ambient Musicians."
Chuck van Zyl, Star's End

starsend.org/DownstreamBlueBygones.html

"Il tocco cinematico dell’artista inglese definisce così partiture orchestrali di luminoso, compassato romanticismo."
Raffaello Russo, Music Won't Save You

musicwontsaveyou.com/2020/10/28/musictosave-008/

"D’une beauté aussi viscérale que poignante, d’une vérité aussi émouvante que lucide et limpide, Bygones dévoile ses huit étapes dans une parfaite cohérence."
Raphaël Duprez, Punktum
