Small Life Form is a musical project of Brian John Mitchell (Remora, Vlor, etc) that started in 1998 based around recording 30 seconds of sound (the limitation of Sound Recorder in Windows 3.11) & stretching & adding echo & layering the results. Over the next five years Mitchell’s interest in 1960s classical music (most notably Gyorgy Ligeti) & electroacoustic music (especially label mates Kobi & Clang Quartet) led to the recording of the debut album One (2003) with pieces constructed from horns, melodica, cymbal, voice, & radio astronomy.

In 2007 at the urging of Shaun Sandor (Promute) & CJ Boyd, Small Life Form became a live project initially built around voice, horns, & feedback eventually refining to the current main instrumentation of voice, feedback, copper pipe, triangles, aircraft lock, optical theremin, melodica, & super simple synthesizer. Early versions of the live show can be heard on 2008’s Alive & followed up by the studio recordings of Lost Kisses Soundtrack (2009) & Satsop (source sounds recorded in 2008 in a nuclear cooling tower & released in 2012).

Voice in the Sky takes the Small Life Form live show & allows it to breathe & develop. It starts with reverbed out layers of ghostly voices building into walls of sound & decaying noise. A big slab of drone taking you into Small Life Form’s world for 45 minutes.

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" is Patkus' third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015's "Colors." Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" mirrors Patkus' journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.
