V/A ~ Gomel, 1986

In her book Chernobyl Prayer, Svetlana Alexievich says that “Chernobyl is, above all, a catastrophe of time. The radionuclides strewn across our earth will live for 50,000, 100,000, 200,000 years. And longer. From the perspective of human life, they are

Guenter Schlienz ~ Peace

Pacified tones flow out of Peace. In the key of sweet love, higher notes float on translucent, ever-calm waters. Occasionally, a soft, undulating bass will accompany them, drawing near and walking beside them. Peace is more than just an absence

Fall Music Preview: Ambient & Drone

And now we come to the last of our five fall previews, introducing the relaxing sounds that can soothe away a hard day, paired with the hums and extended tones that operate as harbingers of night.  Lodged in the middle

Mantle ~ Quiet Music

Quiet Music drifts on and on. At first, low-flying drones give birth to deep, dense textures which hang ominously up above, but they barely ruffle the still air. The drones will later alternate between higher and lower altitudes as they catch different currents, but its ultimate direction is unchanging, and its course is

Steve Pacheco ~ The 4th

If music were ever to become visible to the naked eye, Steve Pacheco’s mesmeric The 4th would sport a pair of soft, silvery wings, a supple skeleton and a crimson heart pumping love, only love, into its veins. The 4th seems to defy

Sonic Entrails ~ The Doxey Boggart Original Soundtrack

“ In English folklore, either a household spirit or a malevolent genius loci inhabiting fields and marshes” The Doxey Boggart is shrouded in a thick, pungent drone-fog and eclipsed by a family of gigantic, aged trees. Indistinct voices swirl around in the depths of the woods – a

We’re not sure where Usher’s Hill is located, but based on the look and sound of this set, it’s a beautiful place: bucolic, green, sedate.  One pictures sheep at pasture, blankets spread upon the ground, petals falling slowly in the
