Brian Bourassa I've often wondered what makes some music "dark." Is it because we have been taught to associate low, deep sounds, with dark or evil things? The movie industry may have trained us well!

At any rate, "Into the Dark" is a superb ride on a mysteriously "dark" landscape. ...a Ballardian landscape? That's up to the individual to decide.

Track one, my favorite is an underwater ride, a very textural one, in which known sounds morph themselves into mysteriously curious living it! Favorite track: Into the dark part 1.

I've released this early ... with no warning because its nice to get a surprise now and again ... and I hope to take a wee break for a few weeks over the Christmas period.

'Into the dark (waag_rel038)' is the first in a trilogy of dark, atmospheric, and rather sinister sounding ambient albums that I am proud to say I have secured for release.

I've been itching to release this album ... an album where Cousin Silas goes back to his darker ambient roots ... ever since I received it from him. It is deliciously dark and deeply atmospheric ... reminiscent of his Ballardian work ... with a healthy dose of Lovecraft thrown in for good measure.

'Into the dark (waag_rel038)' helps the mind to wander ... it conjures up alien places and Cyclopean spaces ... a playground for the imagination.

I hope you enjoy this album as much as I do.
