Cousin Silas and I connected many years ago when I said some nice things about his work on Shaun Blezard's seminal 'Earth Monkey Productions' netlabel. Silas had released 'Geographics' and his first two Ballard Landscapes on EMP and I had picked them up. They were my kind of atmospheres: dark, eerie & powerfully emotive ... they conjured up desolate spaces and lands dotted with Cyclopean buildings before I had read Lovecraft and knew what Cyclopean architecture was.
"Great watery spaces opened out before me, and I seemed to wander through titanic sunken porticos and labyrinths of weedy Cyclopean walls with grotesque fishes as my companions."
- 'Shadow out of Innsmouth' by HP Lovecraft
Cousin Silas' music has moved on from these initial recordings. It is broader and less niched to one particular genre. This is his skill and I am glad, in some small part, that weareallghosts has provided him with a platform in which to experiment with his sound and evolve musically.
Dronescape 019 (waag_drs019) is a return to the Ballardian days. It is rather dark and eerie, with a sense of curious investigation rather than foreboding. There are a few surprises on the journey but then all journeys have their own, unique events.
I hope you will enjoy this dronescape as much as I do.
