about

Winter inspirations... memories of the long roads; venturing across those wide-open spaces with frigid winds... and a snowstorm or two. This was my drive all the way up to Montana from Texas, to spend some solitary time there over the Christmas break.

Sculpted over a few weeks using nothing other than a half-sized electric guitar, an e-bow, glass slider, a pair of bottles, a rock shard, and some base field recordings. Tracks 11 - 15 were initially left out, with "Specter" being trimmed in order to help keep the album under 80 minutes, but they've been restored as bonus tracks and thus serve as the original completion to the journey.

I dedicate this little project in memory of my dearly departed mom, who unfortunately wasn't able to be with us this Christmas.

about

Emil Karlsson Katy, Texas

Aspiring creator of electronic ambient music and evolving soundscapes with some inspirational nods to Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Max Corbacho, Jeff Pearce, and Biosphere.

I mainly experiment with organic field recordings and sculpt almost purely through improvisation, letting textures and spaces reveal themselves in the moment.

Hope you enjoy my soundworlds!
