Cloudscape #80: August 2018

After a hiatus I’m back in the mixing business. This one features a lot of music covered in my new print zine Ex Abyssō, as well as other new music.

We move from ambient acoustics, traditional influences, to rhythms and sounds increasing in intensity.

Ex Abyssō

The first issue of Ex Abyssō was published yesterday. This zine is a new home for short reviews, personal essays, art, and more, and each issue comes with an EP of music by selected artists!

Dreaming the self, awakening the self

Though the paths differ, both albums end up at or pass a similar point: a moment where the self becomes whole, where the false self is expelled, and the parts of the self are reintegrated.
