Three years after Jörð, British musician and sound artist Oliver Barrett returns with the project Petrels. The Dusk Loom is the new album and it will be out on May 31st via Denovali Records. As the press release reports, Barrett takes an evocative approach to storytelling that asks the listener to draw their own meanings from the clues and references running through the sounds and words.
Finding inspiration in mythology – both ancient and new, the work and writing of Remedios Varo and William Blake, memory, death and cosmology to name just a few, Barrett pulls these seemingly disparate strands together into something that is unmistakably Petrels but which also points the way to something new.
We already shared “Surface of Last Scattering“; “Tiny Specks of Light” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
