In this case, that means albums curated by Serries, released on limited edition LPs in custom sleeves. [...read more...]

Cloudscape: Sacred Voice Deconstruction

2014_deconstructing_600

In Christian religious music, the voice and its word dominates. In my interpretation, some composers of dark ambient and related electronic music genres from recent years have adopted this tradition of sacred music, while simultaneously deconstructing it.
