On a rainy, miserable day in May ... we still have hope for the future. There is light at the end of the tunnel and, as shops and restaurants open, we have a taste of what we've missed for so long ... and it tastes good. And it is in this environment, that Cousin Silas brings the sixth and last part of his " ... and friends, volume eight", a wonderful mix of delightfully gentle ambience ("Starscapes" by Cousin Silas & Pat Pik, and "Travelling In Opposite...

Sometimes music evokes feelings and feelings in turn evoke music. I have always tried to put as much of my feelings as possible into my music. I want to tell stories or rather make untold stories heard.  This whole album is based around death, loss, grief and despair. While most of the tracks were made a few months ago, after the untimely passing of my mother I felt I needed to make some more music just to try and cope with the situation. This how the title track and "We are all...

It's been a while since our last release and I wanted to ensure that we finished the year with this wonderful longform piece from er go. It's been a tough couple of months for me personally and I can only thank Eric Goldman aka er go for his patience, having initially contacted me back in late September. It seems almost fitting to release this album a week after the Winter Solstice ... for as we climb out of the darkness physically, we do so metaphorically too. The worst is behind us and we can...

"Resonant Arcana (waag_rel147)" blurs lines between ambient, neoclassical, experimental electronic, and shifts effortlessly between them ... it explores a pensive and melancholic sound-world that balances orchestral instrumentation, dynamic synthesisers, and esoteric audio manipulation ... and differs from my first album with a darker tone and wider sonic palette. "Resonant Arcana (waag_rel147)" retains the same emphasis on harmonic and textural richness as  "Into Air...

I'll admit to being new to Generative Music, it is not something I was aware was "a thing" until Thomas Jackson Park pitched the idea to me for his track on last year's compilation, all|is|bright_2020 ... I was intrigued and did a bit of digging. According to Wikipedia, Generative Music is a term popularised by Brian Eno to describe music that is ever-different and changing, and that is created by a system. I was further intrigued and, through our correspondence, Jackson Park let me...

It's been over a year since we had the last Dronescape from Cousin Silas ... and in that time he's been very busy expanding his body-of-work over on his Bandcamp page ( cousinsilas1.bandcamp.com ) as well as with his "...and friends" collaborations here on weareallghosts. I do love his longform pieces and continue to listen regularly to the Dronescapes he has released here ... as well as the Emporium drone series that he self-publishes.  Nothing beats a continuous, unbroken stream of...

I am a huge fan of William Spivey's music and when he came to me with this release I was like "YES!!! Now what was it that you wanted to ask?"  I was eager to hear where his music had evolved from our latest outing, "Glimpse (waag_rel051)", back in May, 2014; and I wasn't disappointed: "Air Flows Like Water (waag_rel146)" is a wonderfully meditative album that flows gently along with found sounds and bird song, ambient drones and vibrant synths, verbal prompts,...

At the start of British Summer Time, we are grateful for the lighter nights ... we have hope in the UK for the future and, as vaccinations continue, we see light at the end of the tunnel ... we'll soon be out of this period of darkness. And it is in this environment, that Cousin Silas brings the fifth part of his " ... and friends, volume eight", a wonderful mix of delightfully gentle ambience ("Bondservant Ballad" by Cousin Silas & Sergio Mariani or "Interplanetary...

It's been a while ... It's been a while since the last release on waag ... and in this time James Hoehl has been busy creating a wonderfully dark and deeply atmospheric ambient album that sits effortlessly with the darker music that have come before it.  My love of atmospheric ambient music is well known and "A Dark Time" is a welcome addition to my personal rotation ... it is evocative and immersive, it entices me in with the opening track - "The Dream Stars" - and holds...
