Joseph Curwen - The Temple

A giant vortex has formed creating a low rumbling drone. This distortion moves slowly and swallows all sounds. These noises can be heard passing over the threshold and falling into the abyss. Noise is elongated, as the gravity like force pulls them down. This ceremony has occurred throughout time, accompanied by tribal rhythms played in dreams altered by Morpheus himself. The entire process is fascinating.

There is chaos. Joseph Curwen has taken a pattern and laid it underneath the disarray, creating almost a Moiré effect. The beats are the canvas for contemporary noise from civilization's motion. Some would consider the effect horrific and terrifying, nothing makes sense. Others can see without some structure, noise is only randomness. But with length of time, a spool of tape reveals Joseph Curwen's mind is processing and delivering a composition from deep within his consciousness. Taking both texture and tumult to create something that never existed before.

This is the second release for Still Heat Recordings. Fifty copies were released in November of 2015. Joseph Curwen has embodied the works of H.P. Lovecraft in sound adding to the Cthulhu Mythos. Still Heat Recordings has captured this on cassette delivering a dark sophomore release. Available from the label's bandcamp page.
