“The absence of sound, the shades tending towards black.
The act that lies beyond what is obvious or avowed.
The silence and everything inbetween.
The latter part of the day that is dark.
The cycle of night and day.
The beauty and sadness of Nature’s conservativeness.
and it’s competitor, the Industrial development.
The human senses and feelings.
The light, and it’s evolution.
The branch of philosophy that deals
with the nature and expression of beauty, aesthetics.”
The other release by this body, ‘Vespertine: A Tragedy In Several Shades of Grey’, is a darker and more morbid affair. Described as: “being in a dark place of fragmented memories, visions and disembodied moments of time. It feels like seeing things unfold, yet perhaps it is the sounds of that darkness.” A greater emphasis paid to deep, baritone like reverberations that ebb and flow against the backdrop of pure nihil, out of which flow serene, glacial guitar hooks, low end piano rumbles and diffident, ritualistic whisperings. The feel is more suffocating, oppressive and deranged than the former and showcases a profound talent to supplicate beyond one level of human emotional intonation. I am very impressed with Sequences and it comes highly recommended to anyone who has ever enjoyed anything remotely drone or dark ambient related.
Unfortunately both of these releases are long gone, no doubt lost in the vortex of limited releases. Fear not though as the proprietor of these musical gems has made them both fully available in a range of formats (320kbps, FLAC, etc) over at the Sequences’ Bandcamp page. If you are a similar artist looking for any kind of musical venture or for that matter anyone with any kind of interest, contact can be found over at Myspace.
