Joel Taylor’s Night Stories, a full-length album teeming with moving melodies, subtle textures and xenharmonic wonder comes out on Spectropol January 15.
Night Stories is a suite of nine pieces that concerns itself with our love for, and our fear of, Nature, our closeness to each other and to other animals, and the personal experience of loss, love, and community.
The form of the suite is programmatic and informed by Taylor’s experience with Javanese Gamelan, in particular with the beautiful art form Wayang Kulit, or shadow puppet theater.
A plot synopsis, photographs, videos and bonus tracks will accompany the download.

This delectable assortment of acousmatic tracks from Italian sound artist/musician Andrea Borghi is a textural feast for the ears.
Originally intended to be released on cassette, the work is also a tribute to composition methods used in electronic tape music of the 1960s. Every track is processed in real-time by a patch built in the Max application and is based on cut-up, sovraposition, sound stretching, loop, echo and feedback.
