DAY OF ENDINGS
Tales of time travel, end of days, supernovaes and ghosts given more depth with motorik and tribal beats, dark ambiance, processed kalimba’s, rain sticks, singing bowls, and voices. A truly unique sonic experiment with electroacoustics, krautrock, and brevity.
Day of Endings is part of Silber Music’s 5 in 5 EP series where musicians are challenged to create five songs that, all together, equal five minutes. My 5in5 is called Day of Endings. I decided to add to the 5in5 challenge by making each track title a micro-story (a story told in six words, no more, no less)
The Hungarian label, Floppy Kick, invited me to curate a compilation of Cleveland, Ohio area experimental music projects. Specimen was the result. Not only did I get to release a project with really talented performers, Lure of the Unknown makes its first public debut on one track.
Another interesting aspect of this release is the label. Floppy Kick specializes in releasing music on 3.5 floppy diskettes and Specimen is an example of such a release.
My track, “Eternal Scream Trapped in a Grain of Sand“, combines various ideas from experimental music, film scores, techno, and noise together to create an odd collage to represent the title. Specimen, the floppy diskette compilation that Eternal Scream was released on is currently sold out.
SEAN HØLT & JOESEPH SIMON
Sean Hølt released his 13th release, “Mastic Woods” on Bandcamp featuring five tracks, two of which (‘Rust’ and ‘Soil’) were created in collaboration with Lure of the Unknown.
Dark foreboding electronics for your already hesitant dusk walk because YOU can’t resist going into the unknown!
Sean has been creating engaging analog drone and mayhem while building his arsenal of music weaponry and audio tactics for many years now. While increasing his solo material, Sean has also been in Black Loom and Black Gallows, signed to Hexx 9. Sean’s adventurous outdoors spirit is married to the spirit found in music which I think is inspiring.
