Sounds such as Invisible City and Falt ~ A cassette released by Irish ambient writer Nicolas Maloney, who has released works from drone labels, in November 2020 from the experimental label enmossed in Maine, USA, limited to 11 copies.

Includes 5 drone songs that mix concrete sounds with slowly growing ambiences made from banjos and guitars.It is out of print.

 

Edition of 75. Professionally dubbed type I cassettes with silkscreened j-cards using water-based ink on recycled paper.

From Jackson, Mississippi, Nicholas Maloney carves a vision of lo-fi atmosphericana. Though there is some use of traditional instruments, like guitar, organ and banjo, Lignum Muzek functions more like a weather vane. Field recordings of natural spaces around Mississippi result in bouts of almost-silences, which are less sound, more detectable pressure change. But then there's the occasional insect, a sheet metal's melody. A barely recognizable trombone, the sigh of trees.

Minimalist in arrangement but planetary in room size, the longform tracks move between spatial experiment and texture-as-mood. Wood has a heavy presence on the album—Maloney saws it, throws it off a roof onto a shed. But musique concrète is just One of the tape's dimensions. There are affective swells, romantic and buoyant, but still they retain a climatological sensibility.
