blickwinkel 13 17.11.2023 Cassette/Digital
'Ebb-tide' is the first release in an upcoming series of limited-run cassettes, focusing on Ameel Brecht's "sleep" compositions; music inspired by the vulnerability of sleep, by dream levels, Kleitman and the Wander Company, by sleep's alienation
and by the time jungles in the dreaming part of us.
As a first CS, 'Ebb-tide' is about the hushed slow-motion waves of falling asleep, about the moment in-between waking and sleeping, when conscious life ebbs off, daytime rush meets nighttime drif and the world we see with open eyes meets the landscapes behind our eyelids.
