AnTiNarRatiVe This entire album is absolutely mind blowing. It moves you between eras and ages as if you are in a train inside an intense dream. it is so much more than a simple chill pill. it is smart narrative music, very cinematic and very intense. Favorite track: The Deluge (The Denouement).

quietplease We've had weeks of rain here in San Francisco. No idea what to do with it but put this on. Right, that's like wearing the band shirt to the concert, but still... any excuse.

Jimi "I wanted Cascade to become this crystalline organism like a star or a liquid crystal spaceship, a jellyfish traveling through the galaxy…" Favorite track: Cascade.

Cascade and The Deluge are variations on the latest tape-loop and delay composition from the inimitable William Basinski. Cascade is the CD/Digital variant, and The Deluge is the deluxe 180 gram white vinyl LP companion. In Cascade, a single ancient lilting piano tape loop repeats endlessly carrying one along in its tessellating current. In The Deluge, the same loop is processed through a series of feedback loops of different lengths, creating a spiraling crescendo of overtones that eventually fades away to silence. In the denouement, a series of limpid piano loops leads to an urgent orchestral theme that builds and gradually dies.
