Mariska Baars

               

               


‘Tell From The Grass’ is a delight from start to finish. Baars concentrates on tone – deeply concentrates – and she has a clear love for the development, health, and life of every single note, which makes for a record of delicacy and brilliance. Huge amounts of care have gone into its production. Every note has immeasurable value and there are frequent, shining moments of supreme beauty.

The songs have the feel of true, authentic, and traditional folk, its songs morphing into an ambient form instead of your typical ambient soundscape. Short but oh-so-sweet, Tell From The Grass is a record of unparalleled depth, capable of dazzling in just a few short seconds.


Fluid Radio


‘tell from the grass’ is an extremely natural sounding record. Baars is a master in letting sounds resonate and explore their own path. As if she is more interested in conducting the songs in a certain direction than pushing them in a specific shape. To reach her goal, Baars works very restrained: she never uses a single note when it’s not fully required. The fact that the record still sounds so spontaneous makes it so unique: she does it so effortless that no one else really comes close to her approach. Utterly mesmerizing.
