Rauelsson to Tour in Anticipation of ‘Vora’

2013 05 05 07:14
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.

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.

Vora is available worldwide June 14th on Sonic Pieces, the elegant Berlin label that is making quite a name for itself with each handmade release.

The last couple of years have been busy for Raúl Pastor Medall (aka Rauelsson). While things like relocating to Spain, touring in Japan, welcoming his first son, Oliver, to the world, working on an instrumental piano-influenced album (to be released later this spring), were happening, Raúl found the time to get together with the improvisation ensemble Grup d’Autoajuda and gave form to a live version of Réplica, in its integrity. They performed this live version of the record on several occasions in Spain, including the Tanned Tin Festival. One of those shows was especially remarkable as they were honored with the presence on stage of Peter Broderick, the other mind behind the creation of Réplica. Luckily, the performance was nicely captured and recorded, and Raúl has decided to offer it as a welcome-2013 gift to you all. Of course, if you feel grateful and want to give back, you can support.

Réplica Live was performed at Teatre Municipal de Benicàssim, Spain on June 10th 2011, and has been mastered by Nils Frahm at Durton Studio, Berlin, on December 2012.

Rauelsson – “From River To Sea” Available Now

2012 01 24 13:19

This is a compellingly mature soundtrack for a little-seen personal documentary from Susan Fink entitled From River To Sea which chronicles a turning point in in the her life and the journey to find oneself and a spiritual direction.  Similarly, for Raul Pastor Medall known as Rauelsson, the composition and recording took place at a turning point in his own life.  The results–the tenderness of the melodies, the reflective tempos and the nostalgic sonic textures–are absorbing and make for a rewarding listen without pre-programmed visual companionship.  Get it (on mp3/CD) in the HUSHshop.

Here is the solitary vocal gem on the album, also released on the free HUSH compilation DECA:

“Spring Bird”

Rauelsson w/ Peter Broderick – ‘Réplica’ Available for Preorder

PREORDER ON LP OR CD FROM THE HUSHSHOP.

Created for the vinyl medium, Replica encompasses two long works, held together by plaintive cobwebs that bridge each finely tuned piece of introspective folk and fragile, whispered vocals into a remarkable whole.

Spanish-born, Portland OR-based Raúl Pastor Medall, otherwise known as Rauelsson, began working with Peter Broderick at a distance, sending work back and forth through the mail with one another before convening in person to hone and create their quietly engaging collaboration.

Rauelsson to open for She & Him in Barcelona / Tour in Spain with a Portland touch

2010 04 16 10:15

Spain to Oregon… then Oregon to Spain then back and all over again… that sounds like Rauelsson, doesn’t it?. After an entire year in Oregon, Rauelsson is back in Spain until the Summer. He seems to not have had enough of Portland as he is about to embark on a tour all over the Spanish peninsula that is somehow full of Portland. He will be touring Spain with the same Portland band that played with him here in Oregon and on his West Coast shows; Laurel Simmons (MayMay; who will open for some shows in Spain), Nicholas Marshall (Sabertooth), Matt Berger (Musee Mecanique, Laura Gibson, etc.), Anna Schott and Dave Leavitt. The tour starts in Barcelona opening for She & Him, the “side” project of monster-of-folk and Portlander M. Ward with actress Zooey Deschanel. Then they head to Valencia, where they play with HUSH queen Laura Gibson, who is back in Europe on an extensive tour with Port O’Brien. Then north to the medieval city of Girona, then Madrid for a Radio-3 interview/session on Julio Ruiz’s Disco Grande (a session that Rauelsson shares with Laura Gibson). Then a bit south to Albacete, then back to Madrid, then off to the Mediterranean coast to play in Alicante and from there to finish on a homecoming show at the Auditori of Castellón….oh! and before the tour supporting “La Siembra” starts, Rauelsson will be performing live the score that he wrote for the documentary “From River to Sea”, directed by Susan Fink, as part of the Cinemascore Festival in Benicassim, Spain.
