I've known Drew Miller aka Brother Saturn for a wee while now. I'm a big fan of his album "Everest" recorded under his other moniker The Northern Hemisphere … and was deeply intrigued when he approached me to release his first ambient-orientated album via weareallghosts.
I was intrigued on a number of points: what would his ambient work sound like? will it fit with weareallghosts? why waag rather than self-publishing? could he wait for my schedule?
All these questions were answered when I heard "Tales of Space Exploration 1-8 (waag_rel020)" … everything became clear and I said 'Yes'.
I love this album and believe it is an excellent fit with weareallghosts. What's more … I am delighted to bring Miller's work to a new audience … and, hopefully, bring waag's roster to Miller's loyal following.
I am delighted with Miller's approach to these tracks … he has dispensed with his trademark polyrhythmic and, at times, dissonant layering for a more refined, gentler sound … and am proud to welcome him to the weareallghosts 'fold'.
Before I go, it would be remiss of me not to mention the fantastic illustration that Adam Howie provided. Unfortunately I didn't have any photos relating to space exploration in my private stock and needed help. I asked Howie and he delivered … and not just the cover art but wallpapers to adorn your digital toys. Thank you Adam.
