We wrote different times about Spheruleus, the British project of the musician and composer Harry Towell. One year later the wonderful Peripheres (Eilean Records), he returns with a new ep. Small Haunts is out now via Audio Gourmet Netlabel. Listen below.
Small Haunts’ neatly fits into the trademark fifteen minute Audio Gourmet ‘tea break’ comprising four tracks. The pieces are inspired by watching many a crime drama film, with the tracks cloaked in a thick veil of noir as they trace a fictitious tale of death and mystery. Each piece was crafted using discarded acoustic instrument recordings and old vinyl samples, arranged using plenty of reverb and vintage cassette tape techniques. The package is rounded off with the evocative imagery of Slovakian photographer Peter Nejedly.
