Nathan Moody returns to his full studio after a series of single-instrument releases to deliver Lithopoetics, a full-length album of sweeping electronic articulations and majestic compositions. This electronic journey is a meditation on forces and time beyond the human scale: the constant but invisible cycle of creation and disintegration, the transitory nature of all things, and the beauty that results from change.
Lithopoetics is available as cassette (limited edition of 75) and digital download with over 10 minutes of bonus tracks. Full production notes on this release can be viewed here.
“Lithopoetics has such a stunning sound, it’s captivating, multi-layered and diverse. It feels alive, like the pulsing of breathing, dynamic sounds with motion and emotion from a range of evolving drones, arps, leads and noise type sounds that are layered and arranged superbly.”
Listener responses to Lithopoetics:
“Deep, dense, dark, delicious, daring, the soundtrack for a science fiction movie not yet realized”
“Beauty can often be found in harsh and distorted landscapes, and Nathan helps navigate these with the unflinching eye of a seasoned Sherpa”
“Lush, melancholic textures that drag you into goosebumpy sonic territory”
“Nathan has that unique sophisticated way of carving out complex, yet touching sounds and melodies”
“What a fantastic musical experience. A great journey…just bloody marvellous”
