about

Thriambus, originally conceptualized and recorded as the follow-up to Phosphene Weather at Install, is now drafted from the Install wine cellar, dusted off and allowed to be shared with the world. Phosphene Weather, if you don't know, was my first vinyl release, and as such was a great stress to create and finish. It follows that the return to a template with a standard set so highly was in effect even harder to do. So Thriambus dripped out of me slowly, over a year or so, until I felt it was a perfect statement by itself, and in consideration next to Phosphene. Like that album, it functions almost entirely on composition by way of processing and rephrasing of orchestral loops, harvested from vinyl, laid to tape, and used as the paint for my studio paintbrush. The one exception is "Winter's Gasping Revenge" - a lone guitar and pedal bass piece amid the impressionist fog, much like Phosphene's guitar odyssey "Aboir" was the counterpoint to the faded looping sadness of its first side. Thriambus is what I consider to be one of my most accomplished ambient works from the last few years, and a pillar in the swamp of my many shallower excursions. Inside it sleeps a part of my creative self that has now been permanently etched into the soundwaves.
