about

Following on from 2012's split LP with Gareth Hardwick, Gold Beach is the fourth album and third release on Low Point by Danish composer P Jørgensen.

After working on several commissions, including the score to Kim, a 2009 documentary film about World War Two Danish resistance leader, Kim Malthe-Bruun, Gold Beach was painstakingly recorded, processed and assembled over the course of the last four years.

Unlike Jørgensen's previous works, electro-acoustic compositions subject to heavy computer processing, the most notable departure on Gold Beach is the prominent use of unprocessed acoustic instruments, including double bass, violin, clarinet and saxophone.

The framework to Gold Beach was created by Jørgensen and his group of musicians carrying out a series of both structured and improvised sessions, which were then subject to additional recording, editing and further composition. Whilst some sessions stand more or less untouched from their first takes, others were subject to heavy editing, though the feeling of instant composition is maintained throughout.

Solemn and melancholic, Gold Beach is a work of intricacy and immense beauty. Exchanging electronics for live, organic sounds, the album is heavy in mood and atmosphere, possessing an elemental strength so often missing from albums of this genre.
