The Norwegian artist of digital music known as Howard Maple has released his newest LP record, titled, “0313 Perspectives.” The album is comprised of 14 original tracks and has an approximate total playing time of 50 minutes. A comprehensive record with a broad range of tones and moods, “0313 Perspectives” is an epic treatment of Maple's work and a fine introduction for music fans who have yet to be acquainted with his brilliant and unique style of electronic composition.
Upon pressing 'play,' the listener will immediately understand that Maple is not like every other producer of EDM music. Firstly, his compositions are more than strictly dance music, though they do lend themselves well to the nightclub atmosphere. This is exemplified by “Youre Hands” [sic] the first track on the record. His samples paint vivid images, tell stories, and even suggest snippets of philosophy. His album is a thought-provoking and intellectual treat for audiophiles of all tastes.
“0313 Perspectives” even touches on the border of the esoteric, bearing song titles like “As Above So Below” (a Hermetic principle of metaphysics), “Ra Comes to Conquer,” and the aptly titled, “Zen.” Other tracks are more traditional, and boast many qualities of the best 90s electronica. “Birdland” is reminiscent of The Orb's seminal classic, “Little Fluffy Clouds,” for instance. “Signature” falls somewhere in between, being a fully narrated tale set to calming, soothing music. This marvelous blend makes for an entirely wonderful listen from beginning to end, and is sure to please a room of guests no matter what their tastes.
Regarding his goal for “0313 Perspectives,” Maple himself says, “It is a release showing what I have done for the last ten years, after my second album, 'Mapleism' was released, from 2003 to the present day.” Maple's first record, 'Inside,' garnered him a Norwegian Grammy nomination. He has continued to put his magical ear to use in making fine music ever since. “I feel that I had to share my tracks to the world instead of letting them disappear on a hard drive,” he says. “[This album] is basically just to share my music with the world, plain and simple.”
The world is very fortunate that Maple is a sharing sort. “0313 Perspectives” by Howard Maple is available online everywhere beginning late July, early August of 2013.
