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-only 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.
