Release Dates
Worldwide: Jun 14, 2013


Both formats in handmade, textile artwork! Rauelsson is probably best known for intimate guitar and vocal based songs with releases on Hush and even an appearance on the early sonic pieces album Portland Stories compiled by Heather Woods Broderick. With this in mind, Vora comes as a surprise in a grandeur way with its mixture of everything from piano solos, orchestrated classical music, synth buildups and even an shoegaze inspired organ piece sounding like Windy & Carl performing in an empty hallway. read more...

Quotes

Rauelsson has created an emotionally charged, filmic work of understated beauty and pitch perfect sensitivity that more than justifies its place with the best work of today’s proponents of the modern classical genre.

James Knapman, Igloo Magazine

VORA is Rauelsson’s most accomplished album to date. A full-blown work of modern composition; the artist found a new and deeper emotion in his work.

Richard Allen, A Closer Listen

Worthy of an undisputed critical acclaim.

Headphone Commute

Vora charts a journey, not just of music but of the spirit, and of new discovery. The unexpected direction is a risk, but a rewarding pay-off.

Fluid Radio

An overwhelming beauty!

Jan Willem Broek, Caleidoscoop

Driven by a deep impulse of life, this is a highly personal and sincere record, offering a standing out place in the catalog of Sonic Pieces.

SWQW

As if a state of semi-awake dream mingles with real life. For Rauelsson’s journey this is the highest point of the road.

Zülal Müzik

These compositions breathe like graceful rays of sound; the voice of the essence.

Tom Peeters, Agenda Magazine

Rauelsson is probably best known for intimate guitar and vocal based songs with releases on Hush and even an appearance on the early sonic pieces album Portland Stories compiled by Heather Woods Broderick.

Like a coastal dream impossible to differentiate summer for winter, Vora feels like cold winds slowly warming up. Made in the time Raúl moved from Portland, OR back to his native Spain, settling on the east coast, you can hear the influence of the endlessly forcing waves and empty off-season tourist cities left for the remaining few to discover in peace. Vora is a sure win for fans of Deaf Center´s Pale Ravine, Nils Frahm´s more melancholic moments or film musicians such as Philip Glass and Clint Mansell.
