A CD by Estonian mogul sound writer Murmer, who has been active since the 90's.Includes 50 minutes of noise drone.

"murmer is the pseudonym for patrick mcginley, a man with several passports which have taken him to many a foreign land in search of found sounds of the unsettled, the forgotten, the mysterious, and the beautiful. His field recordings of activated environments (eg originating industrial spaces, windswept telephone lines, bowed branches, gasping ventilator systems, etc.) originate from all of the locations where he has traveled; yet, the documentation of these sounds is the not the terminus of mcginley's work. He is far more interested in extracting a particular emotional, transcendent, or metaphysical kernel from those sounds, and then recontextualizing that germinated sound into sympathetic compositions of magnificent dronemusik.

singing frequencies of a bowed we share a shadow continues where murmer left off with the exceptional husk album (in collaboration with jonathan coleclough), in spiraling his manipulated field recordings as a slow revelation of the environmental sonorities that undeservedly go unnoticed each and every day. piece of metal undulate against a gray tapestry of rain and rasping insects. Golden overtones from shimmering drones quell what agitated textures reside in mcginley's active field recordings, rendering the aggregate sound a nocturnal opiate with considerable potency. "
