In the review for AllMusic, critic Mark Demming felt that the album was "intelligent and well-crafted, and will appeal to fans of either Stevens' or De Augustine's recent work" but also that it was "less distinct than the music they create on their own."[17]

The Ascension ¦ Convocations ¦ A Beginner’s Mind

Sufjan Stevens auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Sufjan Stevens (2015)

Sufjan Stevens (* 1. Juli 1975 in Detroit, Michigan) ist ein US-amerikanischer Singer-Songwriter und Multiinstrumentalist in New York. Unter anderem spielt er Gitarre, Banjo, Klavier, Orgel, Bass, Oboe, Saxophon, Querflöte, Akkordeon und Schlagzeug.

Leben

Seine Musik ist im Folk- und Independent-Genre anzusiedeln. Stevens kreierte für die beiden US-Bundesstaaten Michigan und Illinois jeweils ein eigenes Album (Greetings from Michigan und Come On Feel the Illinoise!). Unklarheit herrscht über den Wahrheitswert der weitverbreiteten Meldung, dass er auch für die restlichen Staaten der USA eigene Alben aufnehmen werde. Es finden sich sowohl bestätigende als auch dementierende Interviewaussagen, oft in einem selbstironischen Zusammenhang.

Während sich sein Erstling A Sun Came noch überwiegend in den Bereichen Folk, Indie- und Gitarrenrock bewegte, experimentierte er auf dem Instrumental-Album Enjoy Your Rabbit mit elektronischen Klängen und Elementen Neuer Musik. Mit den folgenden Alben fand Stevens zu einem eigenwilligen Stil, der Folk- und Rock-Elemente mit komplex arrangierten Orchestrierungen, mehrstimmigen Chören und der vertrackten Rhythmik des Art Rock verbindet.

Im Jahr 2005 erhielt Sufjan Stevens den New Pantheon Award (auch Shortlist Music Prize) für sein Album Illinois[1] und konnte sich dabei gegen nominierte Interpreten wie Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Antony & The Johnsons, Bloc Party und The Decemberists durchsetzen.

Die Songs Chicago und No Man’s Land von den Alben Come On Feel the Illinoise! und The Avalanche wurden im Jahr 2006 für den Independent-Film Little Miss Sunshine verwendet[2]. Außerdem wurde sein Song For the Widows in Paradise, For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti für die Fernsehserie O.C., California bei der Beerdigung Johnnys verwendet. Weiterhin ist sein Song John Wayne Gacy, Jr. in der 3. Staffel der Serie Nip/Tuck – Schönheit hat ihren Preis zu hören.

The perpetual self, or „What would Saul Alinsky do“ vom Album The Avalanche erlangte im Jahr 2010 Berühmtheit als Titel für den Trailer des Films Babies. Unter den Bezeichnungen s/s/s und Sisyphus produzierte Sufjan Stevens gemeinsam mit Son Lux und Serengeti 2012 die EP Beak & Claw und 2014 das Album Sisyphus.

Das siebte Studioalbum Carrie & Lowell, welches 2015 erschien, erhielt hervorragende Kritiken und wurde von vielen Kritikern als Sufjans beste Arbeit bezeichnet. Unter anderem wurde es als eines der besten Alben des Jahres angesehen. Auf Carrie & Lowell thematisierte Stevens seine schwierige Kindheit und den Tod seiner Mutter.[3]

Für den Titel Mystery of Love aus dem Film Call Me by Your Name war Stevens 2018 für den Oscar nominiert. Ende Juni 2018 wurde Stevens ein Mitglied der Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.[4]

2020 veröffentlichte Stevens das Album The Ascension; seine Musik war vielschichtiger und komplexer als seine letzten Alben. Auf diesem besonders elektronischen Album bezog die Musik ihre Spannung aus den Kontrasten zwischen der entrückten Stimme von Stevens und den klöppelnden Drumpattern. Außerdem nahm Stevens in diesem Jahr mit seinem Stiefvater Lowell Brams das Album Aporia auf, das von New-Age-Synthesizern geprägt ist und sich in der Nähe einer hauntologischen Klangästhetik bewegt.[5]

Angelo De Augustine is an American musician residing in Thousand Oaks, California.[1] He has collaborated with and opened for musician Sufjan Stevens.[2]

Early life

His parents were both close to music. When he was 5 years old, his father left home. Angelo wanted to be a professional soccer player in his teens years, but an injury altered his trajectory. He began playing and writing music after receiving a guitar from a family friend.[3]

Career

Angelo De Augustine self-released his first album in 2014, titled Spirals of Silence.[4][5] In 2017, Angelo De Augustine released his second full-length album and first with Asthmatic Kitty Records, titled Swim Inside The Moon.[6] In a 2018 review of the artist's "Carcassonne," National Public Radio (NPR) said that De Augustine wrote it for people who dream of visiting small villages and towns in France.[2] NPR characterized the album's mood as being "like waves rushing onto the shore."[2] In 2019, Angelo De Augustine released his third full-length album and second with Asthmatic Kitty Records titled Tomb.[7][8] The Irish Times described the artist's Tomb album as "his first bona fide studio album"[1] that followed "a series of low-key releases recorded in a bathtub on a reel-to-reel tape machine and a single microphone."[1]

The artist's "Time" single was performed as a duo with musician Sufjan Stevens.[9][10]
