The music of Noel Scott Engel, aka “Scott Walker”, has had a long term influence on Argali Records Netlabel. Starting out in the mid 60s as an orchestral pop crooner (whose four self-titled albums would later be highly regarded works of chamber pop) and later shifting towards increasingly dense, literary, and eccentric avant-garde deconstructionism (the Guardian once described his musical evolution as “…imagine Andy Williams revinenting himself as Stockausen…”), he often inhabited both roles simultaneously, eventually synthesizing both approaches into a unified compositional sound. In this spirit of genre transfiguration and music which defies easy classification, Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present “Walker: In Light And Darkness”, a collection of re-imagined renditions of songs from a variety of points in Scott Walker’s sizable discography, in addition to inspired original works, as a tribute to a man who helped shape the form of contemporary music as we know today.
