Eluvium - Static Nocturne (Watership Sounds, 2010)

on Tuesday, 19 October 2010
Another delightful release care of Matthew Coopers Eluvium project, again caked in static, great waves of fuzzied memories and winter winds blowing straight into your face, pianos fade in and out and even though it clocks in at over 50 minutes this is the kind of track that could happily be left on repeat till the day I die.

From the man himself:

"i am often asked

what artists and albums are of influence to me

and although i am an avid consumer of music

i am ultimately a fan of sound in a much larger sense

it is from rain falling, the ocean swelling, the wind picking up

cars driving by, train yards, box fans, etc.. etc.. etc...

the amalgamation of these things creates a wonderful comfort to me

and it is in this "static" that ideas and music come to me

the mixtures of these elements create the chord changes and melodies

or are the foundation by which they are found

there is nothing more comforting to me in the world

than the flood of this vibration at a constant

"Static Nocturne" is an ode

to the process by which inspiration finds me

and an homage, of sorts, to this foundation of noise"
