    RELEASE INFO
    Austrian musician and producer Patrick Schwarz aka Ryvers debuts on viennese label sama recordings with his first self-recorded full length album that oscillates around the genres of Shoegaze, Dreampop and Experimental: Shoegaze created a preference for guitar effects, loops and decayed vocals; Dreampop inspired the melancholy and an athmospherical sound tapestry; Experimental music influenced the love for improvisation, unconventional song structures , the use of field recordings and reveling in extended instrumental parts.

    His artistic claim is not to create classic songs with strict sequences and refrains to sing along, but rather to produce a free, liquid state similar to a river in which listeners can immerse themselves.

    The release title "MÆANDER" best sums up what all songs have in common: each one accumulates to a dense mass of sound that - sometimes calm, sometimes agitated, but always constant - flows along. The starting point of this project is a looping station. Fascinated by the power of monotony and minimalism Ryvers lays down he foundation of his songs with simple beats and a basic theme (a guitar loop) which is then overlaid with chords and melodies. Reverb-drenched vocals coexist with carefully constructed soundscapes. The superimposed layers result in an intense and tightly woven wall of sound and let the audience drift away. The ever-repeating framework prevents chaos and confusion from arising and ensures that, despite everything, a meditative calm and a familiar element remains in Ryvers' songs.
