Colin Riley

Squeaky Kate Music is proud to release Moov’s debut album ‘Fold’. Led by composer Colin Riley and featuring the distinctive voice of Norwegian vocalist Elisabeth Nyågard, MooV are made up of the enticing combination of voice, ‘cello, bass guitar, percussion, keyboards and electronics’. Following three years of exploratory recording and development this bewildering band of cross-genre musicians has put together a musically aesthetic & evocative album of songs which challenge the rich territories between pop, electronica, the avantgard and jazz. Categorise if you can.

 

Reviews

 

07/11/2008 The Guardian - John L Walters

Colin Riley has a restless spirit. Though routinely identified as a classical composer, his activities in the past few years have resisted categorisation: he founded the Homemade Orchestra with jazz saxophonist Tim Whitehead and has helped put together iF, the adventurous Isleworth festival. MooV, which he formed with Norwegian singer Elisabeth Nygård, foregrounds Riley's compositions, yet it is closer to the fractured soundworld of Scandinavian artists such as Efterklang, or Susanna and the Magical Orchestra. While tracks such as Pure and Coil are austere and somewhat alienating in the correct, northern European manner, Beautiful Wounds and Fall Away are poised and engaging. The album is structured in such a way that it improves on repeated listening, and Nygård's voice meshes beautifully with Riley's spare orchestrations, wrought from keyboards, bass, electronics, cello (Zoe Martlew) and percussion (Rob Millett).
