RELEASES

 

c o m t e - OF CLEAR LIGHT

A meditation on loss & grief, imagining the unknown, what worlds, sensations, we encounter during and after we cross over along with the feelings one experiences when someone leaves this earth. 

Mixing organic field recordings, murky analog experiments and warbling synths, buried beneath textured grit & grain the tracks sit somewhere between ambient and dub techno.The aim of 'Of Clear Light' light is to create an emotional, mystical, uncertain, yet somewhat comforting journey. Recommended listening on headphones and preferably from start to finish.

DEPARTMENT OF FOREVER - UNSEEN PICTURES

Department Of Forever is a new musical outing for Irish Sound Designer/Musician, Steve Fanagan. Unseen Pictures is a collection of ambient/drone music. The songs were originally improvised and recorded over a few days and then chopped up, edited, reworked and constructed into the 9 tracks included here. It is a deeply personal piece of work and mediative in nature. This album was very much inspired by Steve’s sound design work in film over the last decade. One of the tracks, A Simulation Of Here, was recently used by Irish filmmaker Tadhg O'Sullivan for his film contribution to the exhibition 'A Visibility Matrix' curated by Sven Anderson and Gerard Byrne, which initially exhibited at The Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin last summer.

M SHUTAK  - THE WIDOW'S HOUSE

M Shutak's debut release "The Widows House" is a record made of memories and feeling that captures a mood and a moment in time. Drifting piano pieces meld with warm, subtle electronics and the scratched lilting fiddle melodies. The pair opened microphones to the outside world as they recorded this collection. Found sounds along with synths, radios and toy pianos form gentle, emotive sound-beds that underpin the record. The result is a record which sounds like a old creaking house in Spring with the windows left open.
