About this item

Ecstatic Meditations’, the follow up to 2016’s acclaimed debut solo outing ‘Interludes’, features six beautifully crafted new tracks leading with an edit of the 20 minute album opener and lead track ‘Journey In Ecstasy’. An adventurous deep listening experience, the new collection was recorded, mixed and mastered by Furse at his electronic studio on the Margate coast. A sonic tapestry of sound that takes inspiration from the likes of Alice Coltrane, Laraaji, Eno and Steve Reich together with a new found appreciation for Japanese environmental music composers such as Akira Ito and Yasauki Shizimu. The result is an intense yet playfully refreshing take on ambient and electronic music.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Shimmering glacial atmospherics, new age percussion and airy Balearic grooves on this new one from the Horrors' Tom Furse. Crescentic and monolithic in parts (especially the closer, 'A Journey..'), this is a hugely worthwhile listen for anyone into ambient OR electronica of any sort.
