#44 - The Recluse

by The Owl



Video for Oh Sweet Catharsis is here:
It's a big hallucinogenic journey!

There are no synths used in this. It is all originally made from voice and bass with a lot of manipulation, stretching, turning upside down, using Reaper and Wavepad, between February 5th and 13th 2021.

Headphones, darkened rooms and trust in me advised for this slow burning, immersive 57 minute 3 part release.

Chord harmony gratification leads into rumbling low end walls, cocooned in a reclusive but teasing tension and release atmosphere.

'Oh Sweet Catharsis' is a genuinely nice, quiet to loud to louder back to calm and quiet ambient piece.

'Glacial Beauty' - the sound of icebergs moving through space! Combines shimmering static noise with sub-level rumbling bass drones. One to get thoroughly lost within.

'Emergence Of Serenity' is a dark ambient, maybe even doomy dungeon synth expedition with electrical static disorientation, before resolution closes the album.

Thank you to anyone who deep listens.
