Originally released on the now defunct digitalDIZZY netlabel ... Ornithology is a delightfully dubby collaboration between Cousin Silas and Adrian Nicholls aka The Glove Of Bones. It is an album that is simply too good to languish in obscurity and one I am proud to re-release on weareallghosts.
Ornithology isn't your usual release for waag: the emphasis on field recordings and found sounds is atypical ... and the drifting dubby, electronic sounds are new to us.
But, and it is a big but, this is Cousin Silas at his best ... wonderfully experimental and prepared to push boundaries along with his collaborator, graphic artist and card-carrying "twitcher", Adrian Nicholls aka The Glove Of Bones. As such, this is very much a waag release ... one that engages the listener and provides a wonderfully deep sonic experience.
I don't like to see netlabels go under and I don't like to see good music lost ... I am proud to be able to give "Ornithology" a new home.
Thanks to the generous support of folks like Cousin Silas ... Warren Daly … Kevin Lyons ... and the wonderful waag community ... I’m proud to be able to offer a 320kbps version of this release for free over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts
) with a lossless version available here on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’
I really hope you enjoy "Ornithology" as much as I have.
