Limited Edition Cassette
Fans will recognize his deep collages of layered field recordings and modular synthesis from releases on Elevator Bath, Mystery Sea, Trente Oiseaux and The Helen Scarsdale Agency. What they won't expect is the overt beauty of "Eclipse", swelling clusters of strings that evolve from pastoral to a more ambiguous filigree. Descend the spectrum of fading daylight into "Sleep Maze", where we explore netherworld forests and moonlit coasts. Superlative work by Shoemaker, evoking saturated Pacific Northwest evenings and tangled internal geographies.
"...sculpts field recordings and electronics together into vibrantly imagined visions of virulent algae blooms, prismatic growths of crystal from magma, and hallucinatory fever dreams..."
-Aquarius Records (aquariusrecords.org)
"If we had to choose a ‘drone tape’ of last year, this would get a big nomination… "
"A low-key string/drone/wind/field recording/ masterpiece... This tape looks, feels and sounds exceptional."
