Back to shore
Quick & dirty footnote to recent post on Richard Skelton (who you would never characterise as either): another taste of landscape & loss via one of his alternative guises - the sinewy layered reverberations of last year's Wolfrahm (Shining Day)...
Wolfrahm is the latest work by UK artist Richard Skelton, who records under many different guises, including A Broken Consort and Carousell. It's the follow-up to 2007's "A Moraine", and continues his preoccupation with landscapes, land formation, erosion, decay and renewal. The album's title is a reference to the mineral ore that produces Tungsten - a metal, which amongst other things, is used to make violin strings. The music itself brims with a rich, textural ebb and flow - a sonorous drift of shifting layers, with dark seams of beautiful, bowed melodies and eddying, turbulent undertow...
