A Winged Victory for the Sullen - Live in Pittsburgh

14 Feb 2014

I’m loving SoundCloud right now, as there are some real gems out there. This is a live recording of A Winged Victory For the Sullen (AWVFTS) with the ACME string ensemble at the Carnegie Museum of Art’s Hall of Sculpture in Pittsburgh on November 2nd 2011. I’ve raved about AWVFTS on here before, but they are a collaboration between composer Dustin O’Halloran and Stars of the Lid member Adam Wiltzie. Think ‘Classical Ambient’ to get an idea of the sound.

And that sound is just beautiful – perfect late night music!


Kyle Bobby Dunn - A Young Person's Guide To

28 Jun 2010

LP33

You may call it Ambient, Drone, Minimalism or Modern Classical, but I always think of this sort of music as being like bat detectors. In the same way that they change the frequency of the bat sounds so that we can hear them, it’s as if this is what nature sounds like once converted for our ears.

Whatever the pigeonhole, it’s a form of music I adore and Kyle Bobby Dunn’s A Young Person’s Guide To Kyle Bobby Dunn is in it. It’s a 2 disc collection of beautiful, atmospheric music. His site even has one of those mediaplayer widget thingies, so pop along and have a listen! Start with my favourite ‘Empty Gazing’ and go from there!


Gregor Samsa "Three"

Gregor Samsa

Gregor SamsaBeing named after a character from Kafka’s novel Metamorphosis, would make you expect something of a gothic flavour from Gregor Samsa. Not so. Think more ‘ambient indie’.

Taken from the 27:36 EP, this song is perfect for late night listening. Add a glass of Bowmore, and you’re done.

    My favourites from this years On Form Sculpture exhibition. The whale was my absolute favourite, but was already sold (which is fine as I don’t have a spare £11,000)
