“Golden Hour” is a single to Auer’s album “White Noise”. The lead song Golden Hour slowly sneaks up on you, the arpeggio of the synthesizer reminds of film music. An offset groove and a catchy melody take the lead, the next break follows a little later. In the last third the piece drifts clearly towards jazz with complex instrumental dialogues, spinning phrases and an agile bass clarinet solo. Big Five atmospherically tends in a similar direction, only here a grand piano plays the arpeggios. The drums entice with a cheerfully syncopated pulse, above which the clarinet makes virtuoso excursions. Finally, a dancefloor beat and warmly timed, weightless tenor saxophone entice the listener; in between, the cello throws in shimmering or almost staccato phrases, and a little later it meets the saxophone to form common melodic lines. It then becomes cinematic again with Die Kontrabassklarinet. Its abysmal, distinctive, buzzing tones are contrasted in higher registers by the chamber music cello – bowed or plucked -; an infectious drum groove provides the lift, swirling in breaks. White Voice begins as a reduced song in ambient or lounge style, but the first impression is deceptive. Although the piece maintains its relaxed mood for quite a while, piano and drums finally penetrate, fuelling the tempo and shifting the action to a jazz club.
