Home Diaries 030: Luis Miehlich - Field

Home Diaries is an invitation to artists and musicians to create an album or EP to document their personal experience during the lockdown or social distancing conditions that are upon us, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The series reflects a range of sounds, styles and ideas, as each artist portrays their own reflections uniquely. Each release is digital only for now, as we hope to raise what we can to help keep our label ticking over at this time. The releases feature a recurring polaroid image of a small lonely house, with a coloured filter chosen by the artist for each respective release. We interview each artist and this is included as a bonus PDF with the download. You can also check out the Home Diaries series on Spotify if you prefer, which will be available to stream in due course.

Our final Home Diaries sees the return of Luis Miehlich whose album Timecuts was released by us last year. Luis has also been active with self-released works as well as the beautiful 'Silences' on Archives in 2018. He is a music student and pianist and the pandemic resulted in the cancellation of a performance he'd written music for. Whilst the lockdown in Heidelberg, Germany was less stringent than many other countries, Luis spent his time at home and the endless repetition of days gave him a sense of time running away at pace.

Luis' Home Diaries is an expansive, almost hour-long collection of piano improvisations, which he created to counter his perception of time, to slow the world down. He used subtle delay effects to force him to have an awareness of the past and future as he played. The gentlest of electronics and guitar is used to accompany the piano at times and the result is something we feel is the perfect way to end the journey that has been this Home Diaries series.
