SHEDIR “Finite Infinity” CD (152nd Cycle)
2nd full length from Italy’s Shedir. Picking up where her last album “Falling Time” (Cyclic Law) left us, we are again treated to thick expanses of floating drones and intricate use of field recordings, exposing very skilful sound design techniques. Every object, every place, every being contains a kind of inherent solitude that is the pure essence of what it means to be. When the essence of something, its fierce and unseen loneliness emerges, we’re faced with the subtle kernel of being, lonely like the totality of stars. And the effect of being here, on Planet Earth, accepting silence, inscribes something on the cold, shiny walls of our souls, a finite flicker through infinity. Mastering by Lawrence English. Artwork by Nihil.
Edition of 300 copies in matt laminated 4 panel Digipack. 8 Tracks. Running Time 38:27
Release Date August 28 2020
TAPHEPHOBIA “Blue Hour” CD (151st Cycle)

On is now 8th full length, we’re offered a dreamlike experience based upon personal emotional states and reflections of both the immediate environment and far reaching “outer” world. Not a concept album but rather a collection of feelings and visual impressions that revealed themselves in the compositional process. “Blue Hour” is dedicated to the unique atmosphere of the northern landscape. Artwork by Nihil.
