#18 - Preludiene And Exaltations

by The Owl

Track originally called 'Reflection Hypnosis' under the project pseudonym 'Whoever', sometime around May 1996, I think.. but, now it has been absolutely demolished and restructured.


Bass, piano, keyboards, drums, vocals, produced & mixed - The Owl
Structured and mixed during all of June & July 2020.

1 & 2 = Originally bass played live 21/03/19.
3 = Original music made sometime around May 1996, as part of my first recording project, Whoever. It sounded nothing like this!
4 = Played and initially assembled 13/07/20. All sounds apart from the drums are piano.

Main musical influences for this recording...
Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Godflesh, Midnight Odyssey, Almyrkvi, Yob, Bismuth, Ommadon, Sunn o))), Treha Sektori, Mz.412, film soundtracks, holding your arms aloft to the sky when the big riffs come in!


released August 21, 2020
