[ Biography ]

Glasslung is the solo ambient/drone/noise project of Columbus. Ohio musician Brian Sopher ( also of the noise/drone group Hintergrund ), largely consisting of analogue instruments and sounds edited and distorted digitally beyond recognition. All self-recorded and self-released with love and squalor.

[ Press Release ]

"This summer I had the chance to take something of a break from my area of study, philosophy, and in what small amount of free time I had between working and studying I read Robert K. Massie's biography Nicholas & Alexandra, on the last Czar and his family. I've since become oddly entranced by the story of the execution of Nicholas II and his family. When life is at its most quiet the image returns to me; of an emperor reduced to a slave and his family, precious jewels stitched into their clothing for safekeeping, were led to a basement in Yekaterinburg and shot and stabbed to death on the orders of the Ural Soviet. My relationship to this scene is an odd one for me, as my relationship towards all violence seems to be becoming.

Perhaps I am finally becoming truly cynical. When I look on that scene I am not overcome by the terror in its noisy burst of energy, but in the ambiguous strains of whispered confusion and soft sadness that echo with it throughout history. In this sense, and in this sense alone, New Martyrs is an homage to those strains. It is my own attempt to map my jaded horror in the best way I can. I hope you find it as interesting and arresting as I have in making it. " - Brian

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And here goes another experimental project you don't want to miss out on. The sound is typically drone(y), intensely dark and atmospherically tripping. I'm not certain on the release year so I'm guessing 2012 but that's beside the point though, the core importance here is the music itself and [ Glasslung ] got it all based on the quoted tags. DO NOT SKIP this one guys. Once again FREE DOWNLOAD and STREAMING of some extreme quality sound, all at your conveniences.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
